Just a quick note to say Congratulations to my sister-in-law Claire. She’s been studying hard all year and passed all of her exams to earn a place at University studying dietetics. To put it in a little perspective for the rest of you, she’s a single mum with four kids – she’ll hate me saying…

Everywhere you go someone is complaining about something. It seems that a lot of people only EVER complain. Take any piece of nationally (internationally) reported good news and you’ll find twice as many people ready and willing to run it down. Well I, for one (and probably only for today) am sick of it. So,…

CSS gurus that is. Have a gander at this page and then tell me why I can’t get the navigation (Home, Gallery, Links) to center align in that DIV?! To break it down a little, the DIV under the banner is TOPNAV, within that is an unordered list with an id of NAVLIST. I’ve tried…

Car Tax purchased. Phew. Highly entertaining little old lady at the Post Office as well, insisted on talking to the entire queue about how she didn’t look it but she was 65.

To follow on from yesterday’s posts – and I suggest you have a quick skim of it and the comments or none of the following will make sense (but then, does it ever?) – I’d like to delve further into the whole “post titles” thang, how do you use them and what that may say…
