New Look and New Features - Experiment 33.2

I've been wanting to update the look around here for a while, so stop on by if you're checking this via a feed reader and please let me know what you think.

Did you like the old photos better?

Check out the random sites in the sidebar. These widgets are set to scroll a random link to a:

  • friend's website/blog,
  • cocktail recipe I've selected,
  • cocktail blog,
  • or retro themed blog.
If you want to pause the scrolling, click the pause button in the upper right corner. Want to be added to one of the sections,? Leave a comment or drop me a note.

Want to listen to some exotica music? Click the player at the bottom of the first sidebar. Also let me know how the music is, if you use it.

The bottom sidebar is navigational. First you can search for all posts with a specific label. Seeing this I'm going to reduce the number of labels in the future to just a few. And notice how you can expand or contract the archives using the triangles.

I'm going to save the Friday Cocktail for later this evening. Feel free to check a random cocktail from the sidebar, or my posts labeled cocktail in the meantime.

Please leave some comments and let me know what you think.

Looks great! Classy, elegant. I'll check out your flickr sets - hadn't been there in a while.

Glad you reminded me - I have you set up as a feed so I only get text and uploaded images. Nice to visit the actual blog now and again.

Hope you and J have a great weekend!
