October 16, 2022 -
- Revamped the links section on the index page.

September 17, 2022 -
- Woohoo! Got the index page working thanks to my awesome son. I really liked the 2 column layout but it looked good on my 17" screen - not sure it really worked everywhere else. This new layout should be more mobile-friendly and not-my-computer-screen friendly, too.
September 16, 2022 -
- Revamped some pages, trying to make the code more responsive and simpler. I've redone Cats, Links, About, Cocktails and Interests.
- Also tried revamping the index page and I thought everything was looking good til I uploaded it and there were broken things everywhere. Ugh! Back to the drawing board on that one.
September 11, 2022 -
- Added some new follows and their buttons (if they had them).
September 2, 2022 -
- Made a favicon!
- Added to the Cats page - some personal (purrsonal?) sites, a shopping site and cross stitch pattern links.
- Used the new template with the simplified code for the Cats page and it's .... ok. I would like a little more space on the right side so I might tinker with that later.
- Followed some more cool sites and added their buttons to the front page.
- Got rid of the Disquis on the blog section.
August 27, 2022 -
- Did some housekeeping - added a follower, subtracted someone who deleted their page.
- Played around with changing the code for the secondary pages to something a little cleaner, hence the template2 page. I don't know if I'm going to change everything, kind of just wanted to see how it would play out.
- Made another blog post - short story, I learned how to make pixel art today!
August 19, 2022 -
- Dinked around with the spacing on the front page. What I'd really like to do is to have the links all line up but I don't think I can center them the way I have things coded now. That sidebar is a div and those are just images and a link list. I did at least make some more space between the images and the links and also got rid of some deadspace on the right side of the page, where I used to have another sidebar. Sometimes I think I need to start over and recode things cleanly and that's usually followed by thinking, yeah, that sounds like a lot of work, it looks fine!
- Added some link sections to the cats page. I have more links and sections planned but I just ran out of steam tonight.
- Added a link to someone I followed quite a while ago - not sure how the link never got placed but now it is!
August 13, 2022 -
- Gave Maya and Celine their own pages. I have ideas for the Cats page and needed the room.
August 12, 2022 -
- Exchanged a link for a button on my follows list.
- Added a home link on the blog page so you could get back to the main index page.
- Also added another blog post.
- Found some more center tags - honestly, every time I think I got them all some more pop up! - and replaced them with css.
August 8, 2022 -
- Added a blog!
August 7, 2022 -
- Added a new follow and updated an old one
- Created an About Me page!
- Added a couple links to the Fun Links page
- Been playing around with Zonelets because I think I might blog but still figuring out the css. Do I want it to match the rest of the site? Or look different? Hmmm...
- Ditched the music player. I would like to have music on my site - I've got some cool, weird stuff that someone might be interested in hearing! But not sure the Wix player is the way I want to do this.
July 23, 2022 -
- Made a new button and added it! Not sure how I'm feeling about it. Thought it looked good when I first made it but now I'm wondering if the text is too hard to read. Oh well, I made a thing .. again.. and I'm mostly proud of it!
- Removed a dead link from the following list (Amethyst Dreams, where did you go? Your site was looking so nice!) and exchanged a link for a button
July 17, 2022 -
- Went through the peeps I follow who did not have buttons originally to see if I could update with a button and 2 moved up to the button rows and one has mysteriously disappeared but I'm leaving that link on there for a bit because, who knows, could be a flaky internet thing. Hope they didn't leave because their site was looking good!
July 16, 2022 -
- Added some new follower's buttons
- Added new links to Fun Links and Interests (Podcasts) page
- Added more cross stitch projects. It looked fine earlier today but now I can't see any of the projects on the page. I'm also having trouble adding a webring widget and both of these things involve a script so maybe it's a temporary glitch? I hope so.
- Added a button on the individual entries on the Off the Beaten Path pages to go back to the main Off the Beaten Path page. Previously you could only go all the way back to the index page.
July 10, 2022 -
- Added a new follow
- Added a new section to Interests - Archaeology/Anthropology
July 3, 2022 -
- Followed another site and added their button
- Tinkered with the index site some more. Added some spacer bars, moved my button and follow me link to where the rest of the buttons are.
- Added a few more links to the Fun Links page
- Thinking about either a blog/journal or an about me page. Or both. Or neither. We'll see.
July 1, 2022 -
- Earlier this week I changed up the index page. Got ride of the right sidebar and put all the buttons and links of people I'm following in the main section.
- I learned how to make 88x31 buttons! I have no background in graphics so this was an accomplishment for me. I've made 4 so far. My lack of expertise shows but I'm tickled to death with them.
June 24, 2022 -
- Decided I absolutely needed animated rainbow borders somewhere on the site so found some code and plunked them on the Cocktails page. Also changed the recipes background because I think the darker color looks better with the borders.
- Added some more credits to the credit page.
- Added a link to the ACME Label Maker on the Fun Links page and also used it to make a new graphic on the home page leading to the website credits section.
June 17, 2022 -
- Added a couple new buttons/link for people who I've followed
- Added a link to the Fun Links page
- Messed around with the padding on the text on the index page, trying to make a little more space between that and the sidebar with all the following buttons.
- Added the code for the Endless Orbit Webring.
June 10,2022 -
- Added some more buttons for sites I've followed and also added some buttons for sites that originally only had a link
- Changed some things around on the home page, added another webring, added a music player. I am so excited about the music player!!
- Added a credits page because I've just been gathering up graphics like some kind of web pirate with properly attributing the sources. Aargh.
June 4, 2022 -
- Added a few more pics to the Cats page
- Sometimes I don't do a majory update, just something little like adding a button for a new follow and I think I'll remember to mention it in the updates but often I don't. So, I probably added a button or did something minor between the last update and this one.
May 21 2022 -
- Between the last update and now I've added some more buttons for new pages I've found to follow.
- Added a new entry to Off the beaten path - Nellie E Saloon AKA the Desert Bar.
- Added some more 88x31 buttons to the front page.
May 15, 2022 -
- After I "finished" updating yesterday, I got hit with inspiration and decided the index page menu needed graphics to go with the page titles.
- Added a new section to the Graphics page and added some entries to both sections.
- Added some CSS to change the line-height and wow, it was a little change but I really think it made a difference!
May 14, 2022 -
- I swear Neocities is messing with me. I know I removed all the center html tags but THEY WERE BACK. I have removed them. Again. We'll see if that sticks.
- Added a new entry to Off the beaten path, Galleta Meadows Metal Sculptures.
- Between last update and now added a few more buttons to the following section.
- Added a fancy colored cursor.
May 9, 2022 -
May 7, 2022 -
- Added a new section to Off the Beaten Path, the Purcell Murals.
- Thought I had taken out all the old html center tags but I think I did that and then created the previous 2 Off the beaten path with the center tags back in there. I'm telling you, I really like them and hate to see them go! So I think I fixed all of that. Hopefully my brain will remember this time that we no longer use the center tag.
- I have added at least one new button to pages I follow since the last update, possibly more.
- Not quite an update yet but it looks like I lost the guestbook - the link goes to a 410 Gone page which Google tells me means a site is gone gone. I will hold off on removing the link for a bit in case the page makes a miraculous reappearance.
April 30, 2022 -
- Playing around with adding another sidebar because the left sidebar was getting awfully looonnnggg. Not sure how I feel about the look. I think I like it? I am resistant to change even though I felt that change was needed so I'm going to leave this as it is for a hot minute and see if I can settle into liking it. My other option would be to put all the follows in their own page but then I would miss seeing all those buttons on the front page. Of course, this has broken the responsiveness of the page on mobile and I can't figure it out but am I truly worried about it? Maybe. I don't know.
- Added some new items to the Fun Links page.
April 29, 2022 -
- Added a new page! Cross Stitch
- Some sites I follow don't have buttons so I added links for them.
April 26, 2022-
- Followed some more pages and added buttons to the side if they had them.
- Got a shiny, brand new yahoo address (because someone already freaking has divergentrays on gmail and I don't *think* it was me. Was it? Hmmm...) and made an email link on the index page.
- Realized I had enough room in my sidebar to make the following buttons a row of 3 instead of a row of 2.
April 25, 2022 -
- Switched up the updates so newest are on the top.
- Split up the buttons on the bottom of the index page so now I have 2 rows instead of one looonnnggg row.
- Added at least one button of a page I just followed.
April 24, 2022-
- Followed some more sites and added their buttons.
- Fixed (I think) the photos on the cat page so that page is more mobile responsive.
- Thought the front page needed some more buttons so found some more 88x31s
- Fixed a link in the interesting links section and made all the links open in a new page.
April 22, 2022-
- Created a new page - Cocktail Lounge.
- Tried making the pages responsive by adding a media query. So, on my phone it does show that my two columns on the index page will now stack instead of ramming into each other but really, this is a site best viewed on an actual computer. Also tried making the cat pictures responsive and I think that worked.
- Changed the index page links going out of my site to open in a new tab.
April 18, 2022-
- Finished getting rid of all the html center tags. Boy, I do love me some centering.
- Followed a couple more sites and added their buttons to the index page.
- I keep thinking I need to rearrange this update page going from new to old. Will I? I'll probably keep thinking that every time I come here to add an update without ever actually doing it because THAT'S HOW I ROLL.
April 17, 2022 -
- I did not realize the html center tag had been deprecated. Worked on removing all the center tags from the index page. Mainly used div containers for multiple images but for single ones I used some inline css.
April 16, 2022 -
- Split off the fun links from the interests page and made them their own page. Also added another link to the group, Museum of Endangered Sounds.
- Tried some things to make the pages a little more mobile friendly - photos should resize, trying to get divs to stack when screen is smaller but not sure I'm there yet.
April 13, 2022 -
- Added another page to Off the Beaten Path - Shaffer Fish Bowl Spring.
- Started following some other pages, added their buttons to the sidebar.
April 10, 2022 -
- Got approved for the Yesterweb Ring so added that to the index page
- Made a separate folder for all the images because things were getting messy
- Created a new page Off the beaten path where I share some of the interesting, unusual places I've been
April 9, 2022 -
- Applied to some webrings (Yesterweb and null webring) - null ring is automatic so the link is at the bottom of the index page
- Added to the Interests page (Games:iPad and Switch)
- Made a button! It's at the bottom of the main page. Link to me, if you want! I'd be thrilled.
- Interests page was getting long so added a back to the top link
- Added a blinkie credit to Glitter Graphics
- Kitty pics resized and not hosted outside of neocities.
April 5, 2022 -
- Figured out that iframes isn't my friend and have resorted to an update page.
- Added some links to the fun section on the interests page and a new section on games I enjoy.
- Made a new title for the index page. Trying to figure out how much it bothers me that the title and the "welcome" aren't evenly centered with each other. I suspect it has something to do with them being in different containers. I think I'll live with it for the moment.
- Oh, also found some sparkly graphics for the cats page.
April 2, 2022 -
- trying to figure out an update box using the iframes tag.
April 1, 2022 -
- added Interests page and found some buttons for the home page.
