Although we really like some of the features of our website, there are definitely some things that we would like to improve. Watch for some changes coming soon…
Right now, we use a program called iBlog to post and organize all of the stories on our site. It is pretty cool software that runs on a Mac and works well with iPhoto, allowing us to easily add pictures to our entries. However, one of its shortcomings is that it only allows us to post stories from a single computer. If Jen wants to post something, she has to type it out and then e-mail it to me. Then I post it from my PowerBook.
I’ve been looking around at some other technologies for building a site like ours, and I plan to choose one in the near future. Our new system will be totally web-based, so that we can post stories directly from our site using any web browser. Along with this change will probably come a new (and hopefully improved) look for our website.
Also, I’ve been meaning to write a recipe system for Jen for quite a while so that she can organize and share her favorite recipes. Watch for this very soon. I’m creating features so that you can search her database of recipes based on type, name, and ingredient. Hopefully it will work well.

So does this mean pictures are on the way? Or is there another way now to look at pictures of our grand-daughter?
Our new photo gallery, full of plenty cute photos of the grand-daughter, should be online and linked from our site within the next day or two.

Hi Aaron and Jen,
I LOVE THIS WEBSITE. I have left other comments and one time Jen replied to me. I did not save her email address. I can not find it published on this site either. I know Sue is staying at your house to rock babies for the next couple weeks. (congrats again – beautiful lil girls) I need to get a message to Sue. Can you please reply to this email and I can reply with her message?
Perfect pages… tnx
