The toughest thing about learning CSS, especially on your own, is that when you return to work on page you were practicing on earlier you find that you've learned so much since the last time you worked on it, that you need to re-do the whole page!
Lately I have been focusing mostly on controlling color in CSS studies. It's probably time to start on the next CSS code that I might to expect to use a lot.
The websites where I've been practicing the new web-weaving techniques are beginning to take some sort of shape. They've multiplied too, as I'm sure they will continue to do. Right now these "practice" sites are at:
Whatever kind of bug hubby brought home and suffered with yesterday, I have today. Chills, aches, ick! I could nap all day and I just might. But first I'm doing a little work on the new website that I'm adding to my "portfolio." My brother has sent me some joke to add to that site, but I'll probably do that later. The jokes are pretty funny and definitely worth putting on the site. It's just that this other site is such a project. It has a very simple design and should be very simple to use, but making it that way is the task that's not entirely "simple."
The idea is to take a massive amount of information and make it easy to follow by arranging it in no more than 3 levels. That means that the "deepest" link is never more than 3 clicks away from the home page. I think I've got it, but I may have ended up with a 4 levels at this point. If there are 4 levels, I need to work on getting rid of one in addition to creating the content for the site itself. That's the fun part, in some ways, but also somewhat time-consuming.
He believes that unseasonable weather is good for plants and crops. He said it's hard on a plant to produce abundant fruit year after year. An occsional warm winter gives the plants a break when their buds form too early and freeze before true spring.
Maybe unseasonable weather is good for plants and crops, on occasion, but maybe not so good for people. Hubby is sick with something that's giving him chills and sapping his energy. I opened the window because it was so pretty outside and 30 seconds later started coughing and choking. Shortly after closing the window, all those lung spasms miraculously stopped.
If we needed an excuse to browse and surf, we have one. The pretty day looks very pretty from the window and the internet is full of interesting things to see, read, hear, and do. Here is a short list of the places TheWebPixies visited today:

Checking some of the links to create this new website, I've stumbled upon some links that might be good for the MMFEHA site. One is a video about germs. It might be useful as something for the members to offer as a resource to the people they inspect. Really, though, it turned out to be a cute video that would make the point to a different audience perhaps. It's fun to watch (kind of), but not necessarily something for a website maintained by a professional public health association. Then again, maybe it would. Perhaps we'll just have to poll the members and find out what they think.
Those clouds didn't seem to hang around for long and now the almost still full moon is high in the sky. I checked Weather Underground to see if that was Jupiter shining closest to the moon and it turned out that it was! Too bad it's so close to the moon that we probably wouldn't be able to see its moons if we got out the telescope. Maybe early next month will be good for viewing Jupiter's moons. That's something that's checked out easily enough!
Here are some of the other web sites TheWebPixies visited tonight:
Every day has its own set of chores and Saturday is no different. If there hasn't been time before now, it's a good time to find coupons and grocery store specials before going out and spending too much money. One good place to find coupons for just about anything is coolsavings.com. That was the first place we tried today when we went looking for coupons and this is what we found that we thought we might use:

Tonight is as good a time as any to check the emails in the alternate inboxes that TheWebPixies have scattered here and there. The main WebPixie email address, of course, is TheWebPixies@hotmail.com. That's where we get our website email, but there's nothing new there this evening.
