I tried to go back to the "Classic" blogger templates. Riiiiight. You can, of course, but you can't do anything TO them once you select one. So what good are they? You can't use them to make the blog window wider, which is what I'd tried to go back for in the first place. So, a plain old template, but narrow, boring, and un-customizable. Why don't they just get rid of that option, if they won't let you do anything with it?
Getting more and more frustrated with Google Blogger.
For the now, I like the winter scene, because down here, this is as much snow as I'll ever see.
