Trying to start a new chapter

Please, bear with me over the next few days. I have upgraded to the new WordPress 3.0.3 and have suddenly found my widgets out of whack and my hacked-to-heck-and-back theme/template teetering on the edge of obsolescence. So I’m trying to chart a new path which may require a new template, etc. Ugh, we’ll see.

It’s a change that’s a long time coming (the current look is 3-years-old) and one that will no doubt require more tech skills, knowledge, time and bourbon than I have.
