Really excited to have found this, Jenn!!  I look forward to learning from everyone.  Maybe you could help with a design issue I had on edchatma.weebly.com.  When I embedded a Google Spreadsheet ("MA Blog and Sites to Follow"), it automatically created a header with the title of the spreadsheet in it.  It's not a big deal, but the title bar isn't the same size as the spreadsheet.  I figured out how to add and adjust some "code" to fix the size of the spreadsheet itself, but it didn't affect the header.  Any thoughts?

While I'm at it, I'd love to see this group join in the chat at #edchatma. (see the weebly above for details)  :)
