The call was excited, frantic and a little winded. In fact, I had just talked to my wife not two minutes before this call, so it is no wonder I was taken aback by an excited call like this.
“You daughter has something to tell you.” said my wife in a solid, stern voice. “What could it be?”, I thought. Did she accidentally flush my computer down the toilet? Perhaps she microwaved the neighbor’s cat again. Or worse, she decided she was leaving the house to become the next Brittany Spears! Oh the horror and agony waiting for my daughter to get on the phone and tell me what she had to tell me.
“I KNOW HOW TO RIDE A BIKE. I CAN RIDE ALL THE WAY DOWN THE COURT AND I CAN TURN AND I CAN STOP!”
“Now that is the most awesomest news there could be today.” I exclaimed, patting my 6 year old daughter Adriannah on the back through the phone as best I could.
And indeed it was some pretty awesome news. After all, how many times does your six your old daughter learn to ride a bike? And what’s more, how many times do they think to call daddy straight away to tell him the good news?
I love my kids, and I am so happy I am a dad.

So I am wanting to work on a new theme for a site that I have yet to unveil. And it is becoming increasingly harder to get what I want without knowing what I need to achieve what I want to achieve.
But, since Google knows everything there is to know about everything, I decided I’d ask him. And he gave me a bunch of answers. But few of the answers he gave me were worth anything. So I asked a different questions a couple of different times, and he gave me more answers. Then he gave me this answer:
CSS Play – Menus
So I thanked Google and moved on to CSS Play. And thank God I did, because I have learned a ton in the last few hours. I cannot wait to get this into practice.
