poem of the moment

Life is not land we own.
O no, it is only lent.
In the end we are left alone
When the last light is spent.
So live that you may say,
Lord, I have no regret.
Thank you for these sunny days
And for the last sunset.

"I'd like to see an honest Cocoa Puffs commercial where the announcer says "It's adjacent to this complete breakfast!""
CSS geekery... now I think any complex layout that depends heavily on float:left is doomed to be unportable and fragile, a hothouse flower.
