I have been "attempting" to spruce up my blog a bit. I read a couple of tutorials and think I have finally figured out how to widen the reading pane. It always baffles me that blogs are so narrow and there is all of that wasted space on the sides. I also added a google translator because I am always thankful for those when I find a great mini site that's in another language and I really want to read what it says!
I also found this adorable little widget (or at least I think that's what it's called) that I added as well. Right now you have to scroll to the very bottom to see it but I may move it to the side instead. It's a little turtle tank with two hungry turtles inside! You click on the tank to feed them and they rush right over to you - it's just like the real thing! I've seen other cute widgets on blogs with hungry fish and even one with a hungry hamster :)
I got to thinking about it and I don't know if I've ever shared any pictures of my turtles with everyone or not. So I went searching for some pics of my real turtles and found some of Herman when he was just a baby. He is a Red Eared Slider or RES and this was when he was only about the size of a quarter. He was such a cute little guy!
Here he was posing at the side of the tank so I could tak his picture. This was back when I could put gravel in his tank. As he got bigger he started to eat it (bad idea) so we had to gett rid of all the pretty rocks.
And here's a long view to show you his swimming area.
