Weekend SnapShot #42

Weekend SnapShot

F1 Singapore
With F1 first ever night race held in Singapore this weekend.
Basically, unless you've got tickets to the event. You're pretty much stuck at home or elsewhere watching the event from a screen. 4 digits for the grandstand tickets! An avid fan of the Formula 1 but forking out 4 digits for a 3 day event is way beneath my means.

It has been an extremely eventful Race Day of the first ever night race and street race in Formula 1 history.
Safety car deployed twice, with 4 stops(Kimi, Sutil, Barrichello & Piquet) and 2 retired (Trulli & Webber). Massa, Kubica and Rosberg were investigated and penalised.
Massa's performance was actually a nightmare at the street race and leaving the pit-stop with the fuel hose still in his car.
So eventful I can't even put to words here. Definitely a dramatic race.

It has been a nitemare the past 4 days!! Something screwed up on my previous template (the white one). I changed the template and spent 4 days tweaking and trying to get it looking like this current one. I practically had a nightmare with all the xml/html codes swirling around my brain! ZZzzz
Do you prefer the old white template or this current template?
*Update* Most preferred the white template due to eye strains from the black.
I've change the body background to white leaving my new black header on top.
Is it better now?

Snapping this picture from behind,they look like a couple. It's my daughter :P
This weekend, The Man celebrates his birthday.
Here's wishing him a Happy Happy Birthday apologising for spending too much of the weekend working on the template and hogging the TV for the practise,qualifying and race of F1 :X

I love the shot of your husband and daughter. The race surely sounds eventful. Sorry you're having template issues. I like the white page for my again eyes although the black page is attractive.

I like the new look. Dealing with all of the tweaking is why I hesitate to change mine. Too much time! :-)

Hubby is a big F1 fan. He wanted to fly to Singapore to watch it but as you said the F1 ickets are too pricey. We spent Sunday watching F1 race on TV.

Nice to see your hubby and daughter so close to one another.

Happy Birthday to Your Man

I like the white background too.

If there were no blunders in the F1 race, it would have been so boring.
