SACRAMENTO, Calif. - From Where I Sit had to undergo a makeover this week, thanks in large part to the software that's used to post here.
In order to make any changes to the template and add any new features, Blogspot said: How about our new templates?
So, here it is and it will be evolving over the next few weeks with, I hope, more bells and whistles - at least that what seems to be promised in the new software.
In the meantime, it's countdown to throwdown in Tenacatita Bay and I've been practicing several Toby Keith songs, Barry McGuire's Eve of Destruction (seems quite fitting these days) and, of course, the old standard, Tiptoe Thru the Tulips.
I wish now I had bought that amplied ukulele - the plinking isn't nearly loud enough to drown out my voice.
Outside of the blog world, Admiral Fox has been taking on her new role at the California Newspaper Publishers' Association by storm, hanging out with all types of big shots, political and otherwise.
In the photo below, she's captured talking with the new Attorney General of California, who also happens to be a former governor, a presidential candidate and, it turns out, also a friend of Sylvia's brother David, now a resident of Ithaca.
