A Couple Things

Sorry for the constant change in blog themes.  I was experimenting with different looks and realized in the end that simplicity is a virtue.  This theme provides plenty of horizontal room for postings as opposed to the more confined formats.

I should have mentioned this earlier, but there is an excellent blog that focuses on Boston and the American Revolution that I recently listed on the blogroll.  It is called Boston 1775 and the posts are intelligent and entertaining.  Definitely check it out.

I don’t know how many of you are tennis fans, but I am totally psyched for the Wimbledon final between Federer and Nadal.  Nadal is clearly a thorn in Federer’s side, but it should be a close and exciting match as they are playing on grass.  Federer is an absolute pleasure to watch.  His shots are clean and his moves are so graceful.  There is a certain beauty in watching him perform.  He is obviously very comfortable with his body.  I do love team sports, but singles tennis hinges on the individual’s endurance and mental toughness.  It is an exercise in all-around discipline.

    Thanks for the feedback David. I was wondering if it might be possible to update the link over at your Forum. I used to get a number of hits from that site.

    Thanks for the tip on the Boston 1775 blog — that looks really great. I’m definitely going to spend some time catching up on that one.

    I like your new format. Simple is best. I’ve noticed — on some monitors — the more background color, the harder something is to read. The “A Lincoln” blog, for example, looks great on my screen at work, but I have a hard time reading it on my iMac at home. Your new layout is crisp and clean.
