a good thing just got better

Gmail, the world's best free web-based email, now has themes!  Similar to the way you can customize your iGoogle site, you can now customize the look and feel of your gmail account.  There are several color palettes to chose from as well as things like nature scenes and cartoonish characters.  If you have a gmail account, just click on options (top right) and then themes to chose one.  If you don't have a gmail account... why not?

Job Hunting...

Well, I said I'd start posting more often and I pretty well meant it, so here goes.

Lately I've been looking for a job.  I don't need anything fancy, but something that will bring in some extra cash while allowing me to be home evenings and weekends would be suitable.  Problem is, right now it seems that very few companies are hiring.  I could always do retail, but that would be seasonal work which pretty much negates any chance of having weekends free. 

So I was wondering if anyone out there in blogland might have any leads on some kind of work-from-home program that is both LEGITIMATE and FREE to start.  I won't pay money to work for someone else, so that's out.  And I don't  want one of those "you could make a million dollars on your first day!" kind of scams.  But I do know that there are some real work from home jobs out there.  If you know of any, please leave me a note in the comments to this post.  Thanks!

I really should update more often...

Quite a pleasant email I got this morning.  Blogged has rated this site!  Not only that, but I got a somewhat positive review even though one of the judging criteria was frequency of updates (which I've clearly fallen behind on lately).  7.8 of 10...  not too bad -- I'll take it!  Imagine what it would have been had I continued to post regularly.  Ah well, can't change the past.  Maybe it'll motivate me to update more in the future though!
