The next time you log into your blog, you may consider updating the template. Blogger recently made some changes that make it simple and advantageous to do so.

You may have noticed that the title of your blog is partially cut off. The updated template solves that. Plus, it automatically adds an RSS feed so that people like me (who enjoy reading your blog) can get updates whenever you post.

Arghh! Please, for any Harry Potter fans out there who haven't read the final book yet, there is a HUGE spoiler in this article. You have been warned. Still, it's very encouraging that JK Rowling is motivated by religious themes in her books.

The last book was outrightly Christian.


She actually includes a bit of philosophy in there too:

Harry: One last question, is this real or is it all just in my head?
Dumbledore: Well of course it's all in your head, Harry, but why on earth would that mean that it's not real?
