Texas Supreme Court rules same sex couple may divorce

Posted and updated a news post with a timeline with links to rulings.

This case has been pending appeal to the Texas Supreme Court for over two years and we have been awaiting a ruling nearly two years after that.  At issue is whether a trial court in that state where same sex marriages are not recognized may grant a divorce to a same sex couple who originally married in another state where same sex marriage is recognized.

PCUSA membership numbers

Updated these two pages with tables showing membership numbers.  PCUSA from 1984 to the present and OPC from 1937 to the present.  


X-23, X-23 Covers, and X-23 Media are now available for reading.

I decided to update the links for these two pages and update some of the content and make it available from my personal pages.  I used to be more into Marvel comics than I am now, so the pages are not current.

Added two recommended extensions:


memo blog


demo page: The font size seems to be where it needs to be.  I did increase the vertical spacing for the links in the mobile version.  The banner now scales intelligently.  Next up is to work on some lingering layout issues with the middle content.  

TAGS: none

demo page installed the new left side links menu.  It obviously needs some work, but you can see what it will look like.

UPDATE: The new menu now functions as it should in regards to width and positioning.  The links now work too.  Next is to adjust how it looks.

UPDATE 2: I think I have it looking the way I want now.  Well, pretty close to how I want anyway.  Font size is probably next.  

TAGS: none

demo page: did a tiny bit of work on the demo page to adjust the image sizing for "new and recently updated" posts that have images.  I probably will only do a very little bit of work like this each day.

UPDATE: font size for "Daily Bible Quote" title was fixed.  Did some reworking on the code for the banner image using code from the friendly people on the Dynamic Drive forums as a template.
