It's the New Me
Like the new look? A fabulous non-blogging friend of mine spiced it up for me, and I am in their debt forever. I'd give them my soul, but I promised that to Satan years ago in exchange for some cherry flavored pixie sticks.
Hindsight and all that.
We are getting ready for our barbeque here, and you wouldn't believe it-my uncle and one of my cousins, who are based in England (he is in the U.S. Army and so they are stationed over in England for another year) are coming today. I haven't seen them in ten years (my other cousin and my aunt can't make it today, but we plan on meeting up in a few weeks time).
Finally, some family that hasn't disowned me.
God, I really hope it goes well today. I hope lots of people turn up. I hope it doesn't rain. I hope people have fun. I hope they like my homemade apple pie.
Happy Birthday, America.

Something I Hope We Can All Agree On
Excerpt: This is great news: A U.S. Marine who was reported missing in Iraq more than two weeks ago is alive and at the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, where American officials are meeting with him, authorities said Thursday. Cpl. Wassef Ali...

Oh! I get it. We can pick 'em as skins...
What to do Helen? I like ALL of your blog looks. Any way they can come up randomly?
I'm a creature of habit; solely based on that fact, I like the old look. But Solomon can adapt. I do like the London Streets skin.
And I LOVE that we can now bold and italicize. Excellent!! I always wondered how people got their stuff to be bold or italicized when they posted, and now I see it's just an html command. Cool.
My God. It's great. Kudos to the designer.
Very Nice. Luv the Everyday Stranger pix. That definitely Rox!
absofuckinlootley beautiful!!! Brava!!!
Well, I immediately switched to the London Street layout. I like a somewhat more muted design for reading stuff...
I'm getting use to the showers that seems to show up from nowhere...if nothing else they do tend to get things moving ;)
Hope your day went well :)
Love the new look chooch, hope you had a good 4th!
Great new look, hope you've had a good 4th of July
the new photo is cool too!!!
What a look!
Happy 4th of July dear Helen! Hope a lot of people show up and have fun with you.
totally loving this new design! it's perfect!
happy fourth dear helen!
I love it! It's wonderful. I hope your barbecue was a success and that the weather held out for you.
Hey, looks great! Yes, happy barbeque to you, and all that. I'm having trouble choosing between skins...do I want the street or the phone booth? The street or the phone booth? All too much pressure...
...good luck with the party, Helen!
I think it looks great, Helen.
Happy Independence Day!
Have a great fourth, and send some pie my way...
I like the new look overall.
I hope the BBQ goes well. Happy 4th!!!
Oh, and perhaps one more thing, maybe you should consider switching your photo from the current photo to one of the excellent snaps of you in your Ascot dress and hat. To go better with your new stylish blog design.
Looks very grown up and stylish. We are also having barbeque today at my parents' house. Big party, should be lots of fun.
Happy Independence Day!
Looks cool! Good barbeque, and its nice to ear some family is crossing your way... Happy Birthday America and Americans.
p. s. - the party started at 8 a.m. here, Greeks and Portuguese are going crazy... God I hope we win!
p. s. 2 -even the comments look good... great job.
It's looking pretty dark and grey here, Croxie. But we have gazebos that are going up, so a big two fingers to the weather :)
Ooooooo....looks great :)
And have a good BBQ as well :) Not sure what it's like in your end of the UK today, but we've got sunshine :)
Oh.. I like it! very bold!!
I'm sure you'll have a wonderful day! happy 4th.
