2011-07-11/17 Weekly LOVIEE

For those who haven’t noticed, the new theme is up. I had hoped to tie up a few loose ends but I simply did not have the time last week and I did not want to delay the new theme any longer. So you you may see a few more small tweaks as the weeks go by.

I am not ignoring the outlying areas this week; it just happens that most of the good stuff is taking place inside the loop this time around.
