It's Autumn!

Yeah, I really hate to see Summer go. Summer ending means that the dream is over. What dream am I referring to? The dreams we all had about what we would do with this summer. You see, it starts sometime around May, usually right around Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer. We all think "We've made it through the winter. Spring was a mixed bag, but we made it through that too. Now, it's finally warming up for good and summer's here! What kinds of things do I want to plan?"

And that's how it starts. The dreams of summer. Those of us who are lucky get to realize all or most of those dreams. Other people get mired down in their day to day routine and only get fleeting glimpses of their intentions. The dreams of summer can be a mighty powerful temptation, and a cruel mistress.

Summer ending marks an end to all that. An end to the warm weather, or at least the beginning of the end. The days have been getting shorter for a while now already, and it will only get worse.

It means an end to all those dreams. It means that all the cool things you've been doing, such as hanging out with friends, doing things outside, going bicycle riding, swimming, and whoever knows what else, is now...

over.

At least for another 272 days. <grin>

Whatever else it means, I hope you enjoyed it and it was good to you.

Welcome now Autumn 2005. Official as of 6:23 PM today.

Chief Justice Duties

I was unsure about what exactly the Chief Justice does, and with all the turmoil and headlines over the Roberts appointment, I thought I should check it out. Courtesy of CNN, here is some information on the responsibilities of the Chief Justice.

Yahoo Videogames

A link from My Yahoo today showed me something interesting and new. A new Yahoo Videogames page. Crisp, clean layout, and lots of content. Support for all the console systems and the handheld.

A Test Page Built

I recently made some comments that I was unhappy with this site's template that I use from Blogger. I've noticed it's just like everyone else's site now, which, as a web designer, I abhorr. So, I also mentioned that I may create some new site looks and post them here. The first such test page has been built, and you can now take a look at it. Is this the new Revision Bar? I'm not sure. The colors look OK, but I'm just not sure about them. The black background has been the constant thing among all the different looks this site has had, even now it's still a black background. So that part is probably still OK. I'm just not sure about the gray text box. I may play around with the colors a bit, and if I find something I like, I'll post that too. Stay tuned. And do tell me if you like this new page look or not.

James Bond thoughts

A real good article on the next James Bond movie, including the search for the next James Bond himself.
