Good news! Regarding Hugh Laing, I can't remember reading much specific, either. Just a line or two, always saying the same thing -- tremendous stage presence. But not much of him as a dancer. So I'll be especially eager to read what you have to say about him!

I can't see anything that could be changed, atm. I took the coding out (probably put in automatically when you copied in the entry). It's a wide box, I think the size of our post boxes. One thing that you could do to make it look less crowded is to paragraph often -- every two or three sentences. Yes, it's awful, but it's what newspapers are doing now. The topic sentence is one of the many casualties of the modern era!!

Well, were his tantrums well placed, or off-center? :blush:

If you'd like to fit more on the page, you can set the "Limit the entry size on main Blog page" from My Controls/Your Blog Settings, in the "Customize the look of your Blog" section.

The default is "0," so that each entry appears on the page in its entirety. If you set it to a number > 0, that is the number of characters that will appear on the main page, with a little "More" link in the bottom left. Once the "more" link is clicked, the entire entry appears as a page. 1000 characters is about 2 inches of screen space. While it won't make it any less crowded -- I suspect the settings were copied off the main board -- it will break up the page because each topic will have a header bar, making it easier to find a particular entry, and what shows will provide a "teaser" to the rest of the post.

You can tweak the number of characters displayed on the main page, or you can go back to the default by changing the setting back to "0."

I'm so grateful that you are putting your blog back up. It is a treasure.

As an FYI the "Favorites" functionality -- clicking the little "heart" to the right of the blog name, works in Mac OS X with Firefox and Safari.

If at least one blog is marked "favorite" and at least one blog is not, the favorites will be listed first, and a separator bar will appear between favorites and non-favorites.
