I met my hubby's DNA cousin +Shannon Christmas yesterday. It was great! Thanks Shannon for the talk and maybe one day we can get closer to figuring out the DNA connection :-) #genealogy  
Okay - so, not a cousin of mine, but a cousin of my daughter's. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to meet Shannon Christmas today as he was in town speaking at an event on African American gen...

When switching themes on a site - what is the best way to ensure that pages set as "full page width" in one theme, are automatically switched to "full page width" in the new theme? I am working on a site that has 400+ pages in full width theme and would love to avoid having to manually set the template page attribute manually.  I can do SQL queries, but as I'm not extremely advanced with WP database construction I don't seem to have figured out the right query to make it work. Any thoughts? Are there any plugins that do this?

I think I need to read all of these. 
Several years ago I was very enamored with all of the knowledge that is available on blogs. I couldn’t believe the wealth of information that many of my favorite blogs published (for free!) that I didn’t have easy access to anywhere else. So enamored in fact, I couldn’t believe people were...

Most Americans Want Doctors' Help With Gene Test Results: Study

This restaurant, despite having a notice on their website that they deliver within a 2.5 mile radius, refused to deliver to us even though we are 1.8 miles away. I am suspicious that they are discriminating against my neighborhood and have reported them to the Better Business Bureau.
