Sometimes the best laid plans of mice just seem to fall apart. I started the day out with a few plans. I wanted to change the site theme a bit. That went well, and now you're seeing the "summer" theme.
I also wanted to get a new flag video for the open trackback posts. I took the previous one standing outside my car in a Wal-Mart parking lot, without a tripod. I wasn't really satisfied with it, because you can tell that I'm not a "steady-cam" operator.
On my way in to work this morning, I spotted this flag flying in the breeze. This time I was armed with my tripod, and so I was able to get a much steadier video. Now if only it had been a bit windier. I like this one better. The sky wasn't cloudy today, but with the trees in the background you can't tell.
This afternoon, Texas Fred asked me to add the "Reject the U.N." contributors list to the side bar. That didn't go so well. When I uploaded the new side bar, the site crashed. That was extremely frustrating. I quickly put up a temporary home page for the site, then gussied it up a bit.
Meanwhile I had to wait for a while so I could get some of my real work done before I could contact Brinkster support and have them restore the backup files. After the restore, things were almost back to normal. The side-bar isn't quite back the way I want it, but it's a little better.
While I was at the job of fixing it, I also cleaned up the block of images that shows up underneath all of the posts. Somehow during one of my updates I had a few tags get crossed. They should be fixed now.

Shadowscope trackbacked with "Happy Birthday Shadowscope"

The Amboy Times trackbacked with "Pakistan Pol Wants Knighthood for Bin Laden"
Hat tip, Hot AirSugiero: Because if the author of The Satanic Verses, Sir Salman Rushdie, got knighted why shouldn't mass murderers like Osama bin Laden, Mullah Omar and the Taliban leader get the sir-title? This logical deduction was processed by
Committees of Correspondence trackbacked with "Harry Reid And the Holy Grail"
When I look at Harry Reid for some reason I am reminded of Monty Python. I mean doesn't he look he belongs in a Monty Python skit?
And of course it is not too hard to figure out which skit he would fit in best,
not with his constant litany of "Run...
Blue Star Chronicles trackbacked with "Michael Yon - Be Not Afraid"
I haven't written much about the war in a while. It's not that I've ignored it, but I've had to back away a bit from my constant focus on it. I chastise myself for that because I know that our Soldiers can't back away and take a break from it. They a...
Right Truth trackbacked with "Muslims wrap their penis in tin foil on way to heaven"
"Some of the Palestinian suicide bombers wrap their penises into fire-proof aluminum foil to save them for the pleasures to come." I couldn't resist printing that. It comes from a "Symposium: Through the Eyes of a Suicide Bomber" at FrontPage

Pirate's Cove trackbacked with "Global Warming Today: China The Worst"
Which begs the question, will the liberal GWACBM disciples go after China like they go after America? (Actually, it begs lots of questions, such as, why are they so fixated on blaming Man to start with, but, let’s move on, shall we?)
Maggie's Notebook trackbacked with "Tony Snow and Laura Ingraham: Another White House"

The Florida Masochist trackbacked with "Another Deportation Tale"
Is there anyone out there who realistically believes Army Spc. Alex R. Jimenez is not dead? A federal judge rightly issued a stay. Till her husband is found, Yaderlin should be allowed to reside in the US.
DeMediacratic Nation trackbacked with "Who Fires the First Shot?"
Setting aside any discussion revolving around, this or that shot has already been fired if for no other reason than I would likely agree.
Pursuing Holiness trackbacked with "Porn: Harmful to Men, and Battering Women By Proxy"
Many people think Christian women are anti-sex because we tend to dress modestly and don’t flaunt our sexuality. The fact is that religious women enjoy sex more than our secular sisters. That said, pornography isn’t sex. It’s abuse...
The Florida Masochist trackbacked with "Constitutional Cancer"
Anyone who reads this blog knows I distrust much of the judiciary when it comes being impartial or when it needs to discipline itself. The members of the Illinois Supreme to this layman's eyes, had a conflict of interest when it came to ruling on its...

At issue before the Court is a pair of cases from Se...
