So far, I think I am happy with the new look of the site

I chose to use the Semilogic theme

This theme is made by Denis de Bernardy. He has it available at Semilogic . He also makes a large number of plugins and widgets for both WordPress and his Semilogic theme.

He also has a Semilogic Pro theme that has several enhancements. While the regular theme is free the Pro version is a bit expensive. After seeing how the regular version works, I think the Pro version may be worth the investment for me in the future.

It is very well done. If you are looking for a theme you may want to take a look at Semilogic. 

I still have a few things I want to try and do with the theme but they will have to wait till after Memorial Day.
