Remeber the Occupy Wall Street protest [which started in NY on September 17, 2011]? Of course you do! It hasn't even been a year. Since you remember you're very familiar with all the "We are the 99%" pictures all over the net. Well today I found a "What Income Percentile Are You" calculator over at Intuit's web site. Ever wonder what percentile you are actually in? The calculator will tell you. I displays both your US percentile and world percentile. Check it out with the link below:

Blogger.com: How to center header image and header text


So a while back blogger.com moved to their new format. I of course migrated the Elder Tribunal to the new version. I spent some time trying to figure out how to center the header image and header text. The text was easy to do. The image was easy to do in IE, but didn't want to work in Firefox and Chrome. So I set it back to left justified and decided to wait until I had more time to play with it.
