Here's a little hint... If you're using Prototype in any of your projects and you want to set the "float" style you have to use the property cssFloat.

Element.setStyle(mydiv, {float: 'left'});
Element.setStyle(mydiv, {cssFloat: 'left'});
I suppose this is probably true outside of prototype too..

The sticky wicket about this is that Safari seems to be the only browser that cares. Firefox and IE handle it just fine. Safari fails mysteriously.

Two haircuts down

Last fall I started going to a "stylist" for my hair. No reason really, but it was an awesome experience and it's cheaper than Hair Cuttery. When you go to a stylist though you've got to be more deliberate about your hair cut routine because you can't just drop in and get a cut. I've got cuts scheduled until July. The odd thing about this though is that you can measure your year in hair cuts. It's hard to believe it, but this year is already two-hair cuts long!

Seven more months for me too...

July, but we started dating 15 years ago and met long before that as children.

Our parents have volunteered to watch the kids, but we’re still trying to decide what we want to do though. It’s a hard balance between doing things that you can’t do with children and not going too far from the kids. Right now, the leading contenders are some sort of road trip through the mid-west visiting friends and family, camping, etc. and going on a cycling tour in the northeast (does anyone have any experience with a cycling touring company that they like?), or we may just go to B&B/spa-resort thinger with plenty of reading time. Any other ideas?
