You'll have to manually turn that into a hyperlink to grab the full-size version, though, because I'm too lazy to fix it now.
I kinda like this setup so we'll probably keep it for 2008. If you have suggestions or would like to make a birthday request, you know how to find me.

Most of the time I was weeks ahead of myself having these things ready, but sometimes current events warranted some quick changes. I think we had the Red X at the top of the page three times due to me making spelling errors, and once because I forgot to assign a graphic to a date (and I was in New York and had no idea).
I'm sure I'm forgetting something interesting about this process but that's how I tend to operate.
