Lotsa New Stuff 25

Lotsa New Stuff

The Zoot household has a lot of things to be excited about. Here is a photo essay showing them all off! 1.

I dont understand why it does sometimes, but not others. I ping the same defaults that Movable Type allows me to ping, everytime I publish, but I dont know who else to ping. Do you know?
