    Happy Penguin Awareness Day!

    Some penguin facts:

    There are 17 different kinds of penguins, and they all live in the southern hemisphere.

    Penguins are birds that do not fly. Their wings serve as flippers, which they use to swim through the water. The only time penguins are airborne is when they leap out of the water.

    Most penguins can swim about 15 miles per hour.

    Rockhopper penguins build their nests onsteep rocky areas. To get there, they holdboth feet together and bounce from ledge to ledge. These birds can bounce up to 5 feet.

    They are warm blooded, just like people with a normal body temperature of about 100 degrees F.

    Penguins don't live near freshwater -- at least none that isn't frozen. Instead they drink salt water. They have a special gland in their bodies that takes the salt out of the water they drink and pushes it out of grooves in their bill.

    Penguins are found in Antarctica, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. Elsewhere, they are only found in zoos.



    Some penguin jokes:

    Q: What do little penguins sing when their father brings fish home for dinner?
    A: Freeze a Jolly Good Fellow.

    Q: Why are penguins good race drivers?
    A: Because they're always in the pole position.

    Q: How does a penguin make pancakes?
    A: With its flippers.

    Q: Why did the penguin cross the road ?
    A: To go with the floe

    Q. Why do penguins carry fish in their beaks?
    A: Because they don't have pockets.

    Morea, I was watching penguins at Seaworld in FLorida and man did they smell bad. They are pretty cool animals in fact one of them bent over and peed right on the glass at everyone who was watching, it was hilarious.
    How about a chain pickerel in your bath tub?

                                Just getting out of bed in the morning is a success. Bonus if I can find two matching socks.

                                Did you buy the domain name or did the other guy buy it for you?

                                If you bought it, you just re-install the theme, host it yourself and then point the domain to the new site.

                                Can you please clarify what you mean by web 2.0? It's quite a dated term.

                                The thing with trends is they date really quickly. My clients don't keep up with trends so it's unlikely they want to see the latest design trends in the proofs I supply.
