Broken Blog and Other Things

If you've looked at my blog lately you've probably noticed it doesn't look quite right. The sidebars now have light text on a light background which makes them very difficult to read. Unfortunately, there's nothing I can do about it. It's happening because the colors are part of the template, and the template is drawing color blocks from other Web sites. Something must have happened to the page that has the sidebar color block. I've noticed it's happened before but it's always managed to fix itself. It's been several days now so maybe the break is permanent this time. The only way for me to fix it would be to put together a new template, and needless to say I don't have time to do that right now. So, I'm ignoring it. At least my posts are still readable.

In other news, this is how my hubby spends his time off:

Can you guess what this is?

That, my friends, is a pollen ball—pure pollen mixed with a little bit of water. After working seven days in a row this is how my hubby starts his day off, by making a pollen ball. I'm so proud.


  1. That is too funny...never tried to make a pollen ball!!

  2. It looks like a big Cheeto ball! =)

  3. WHAT! I thought that was an egg yolk (boiled of course). How funny!

  4. You'll notice that my hand is dirty; I was, in fact, engaged in actual work outside at the time. Just to set the record straight. By the way, the dog thinks that pollen, while (marginally) edible, tastes kinda' funny. I concur.

  5. oh dear Lord! i imagine if my hubby touched that pollen ball he would go into anaphylactic shock! yikes LOL

  6. Dan, I always suspected you were a freak - now I know for sure. Thanks for clearing that up.


Thank you for your comments!
