I updated the template to the newer version this morning. It requires reworking things. I'm disappointed to see that I can't optimize css with this either - both ThreeNotchPlace and RichmondBaskets (which were done fresh on Joomla 3.75) work wonderfully - I don't understand why it won't work here.

I need to make the module styles too.

I've still got a lot of changes to make but I need to get my clothes on and ready for the day.


It's been a long time...

I've recently gotten back into Joomla - I've  forgotten more than I knew! I decided to update this site and use it as a depository of information that I collect as well as a record of my days. It uses an old Joomlashine template and I'm trying to find out how to upgrade to the latest version  I've been spending a lot of time recently studying and catching up.

Joey went to the beauty parlor today - he really hates it. I keep telling him he was born a poodle and that's his lot in life...

There was a new update to Joomla - 3.8.1. It looks like it's improved the slowness I was experiencing in the last version.

For some reason I can't compress CSS in this template - that's my most recent obsession...


Well, here we are...I'm holding my breath.

On Sunday we had a lovely birthday party for Will - it was the first time that we've used the dining room since we moved in here. We had steak, baked potatoes, green beans and cornbread. We also  had birthday cake!


It's been a busy time since moving into our new home and making it really work for us. All we have left to do is have the carpet on the stairs replaced, the shutters in the master bedroom installed, and some rooms upstairs painted - then there's nothing I need or want to do! I'm really pleased with the results - it's beautiful and a delight to live in.

Joey is a year old now. With the exception of his fear of the car and his dislike of going for a walk, he's a really good dog. We're still working on not jumping, but we're getting there.

I've made Easter baskets this year. They are a nice tradition and I'm glad I'm still able to do it.
