(X) Memorial Day Memories

As I stood at attention for taps at 3pm today (though I'm not military anymore, and wasn't for that long) I feel completely inadequate.

I thought of my father, and my mother. Both who served in the United States Army. I thought of the Marine Corp flag that my father gave me when I joined, that had once been his grandfather's. I thought of the graveyard that I had passed through only weeks before, photographing the broken headstones, and stopping to give note to the stone of a corporal.

(X) Neopets

Alrighty, SO, McDonald's now has Neopets plushies lol. (I've been waiting on this for like a month now.) I just called and was told that Shoyru is #13, so they don't have them yet. They have 1, 2, 3, and 4, and #1 is the Scorchio.(So If I waned a purple Scorchio, which I kinda do, I'd go get one nowlol.) However, they're all in white packaging, so beyond knowing thespecies they don't know the colors! So, I'll be lucky to get all theShoyru without getting doubles lol. I'll have to go at peak times, andtrade with little kids lol. I CAN'T WAIT! She told me to try Monday forthe Shoyru. *Does a lil dance* :D YAY! SHOYRU!

Beauty is not easy tonavigate, deal with, keep up, And I'll hate anything that I try to putup anyway. My main effort needs to be making the pages easy for peopleto get to, read, make use of, yadda yadda yadda.
My black and purples chemes or javascript window openers, or fancy iframes are all fun and neat, BUT, it makes it so very difficult for people to navigate. I need to stick with a color scheme , stick with a design format (graphicallyspeaking) and just work on getting ALL the content updated. I think bythe time i have ev…
