I meant no offense, just an observation...

What'd you do with your time before bananas? Mine was gardening, trucking, and motorcycling (the last 2 keep me from my gardening).

I just became a grandpa last September. Congrats to you. Study hard. We'll be 'rooting' for you! lol I still carry my CDL with combination vehicle/air brake/tanker/double/triples endorsements, but I dropped the Hazmat endorsement as I never used it, and it was gonna cost me $100 for the TSA background check to retain it.

We've got only 2 cats and 20 nanners. Are you interested in more cannas? I have 4 kinds including a dwarf variety and William Shatner.

These winds are kicking my a**!! I've had my patio roof support tubes buckle under the wind, and now the panels are starting to come off...It's gonna be a looooong morning!

i love cannas. the ones i have i got from tophersmith. the are doing awsome. 6 of them are6-9 inches high. i have one that is little yet. i a few weeks will have to move them to their own pots. i still have my hazmat,dou/ trip/ tanker, all that stuff. i dont know if ill be able to drive any more i screwed up my clutch knee last may. i do get the urge to jump back in a dump evertime i see a pretty pete though.. hopefully you wont have to much trouble with your patio roof. the wind here isnt bad its just bone chilly. ive had my cdl since 93 and i love it. i just live in a small town where its odd to see women do anything here but sweep the front porch, shop, do the girl things, and have 15 kids that their screaming at. lol. it tookme almost an hour to water everthing in the nana room yesterday. thats a job in itself.i think its worth it though.

Not only are the people great, but the software interface is perhaps the best I've seen.

One tweak you might consider is the length of the control bar:
User CP Photo Gallery Today's Photos ...

By shortening a few of these titles, the whole thing could match the width of the adjacent display areas and not overflow off the right of the screen.

Some suggestions:
Photo Gallery --> Gallery
Bananas Wiki --> Wiki
Chatroom --> Chat
Members List --> Members

That ought to do it!

Wow, I wish mine looked like that. I'll check out my Internet Explorer settings. Maybe Bill Gates thinks it just looks better that way ...
