Like Stacy, I decided it was time for a change. I looked and looked for a layout that I loved and finally fell in love with this waterfall scene. I saved the template, not realizing (until I was in the process of saving) that all of my widgets would not be saved along with it. Meaning, my favorite links, playlist, photos, blogroll, etc. would not be saved. I spent a ton of time recreating those things only to preview the blog and realize that it's one of those layouts that scroll PAINFULLY slow. I HATE that. I also can't figure out how to get that orange strip at the top of the page to go away.
SO, I'm hoping the rest of you like the layout and that my blog isn't just going downhill fast by having a password added and then being slower than mud.
