I am aware of the weird problem with the color of blog headlines. Weebly's blog software seems to have a bug in it that is causing headline links to default to blue even after I set the design style to green. I am working with them to correct the issue, but I don't know how long it will take to fix.
Update: Color problems solved. Apparently, I had to enable beta features since they moved color change support to the new beta version of the editing suite.

Not that it matters, by the bug does not cause a design aesthetic that is foul or offensive.

No, it's not awful, just ugly. It clashes. It could be worse.

Try calling Home Depot.

I hope he kept his receipt.

You really don't want to know what's going on with that. Home Depot "lost" the records of my extended warranty when they switched computer systems, and it took all day for them to find it. When they finally "activated" the extended warranty, they then told me that the first available service opportunity is not for 3 weeks. Their "expediter" is supposed to call me today to see if they can find an earlier appointment.

Sheesh... do they offer loaners? This is precisely the sort of reason we decided to rent instead of buy a home. Where we're at, the rent is about the same as a mortgage, we don't plan on staying here forever, and when an appliance breaks the maintenance staff replaces it the next day, no questions and at no cost to us. Stories like yours scare us.

No, but they changed the service date to Monday. I wonder if they do it on purpose, proposing a ridiculous date, calling back with a closer one, and then making you feel relieved even though it's still more than a week away. Rejection-then-retreat, to use Cialdini's model of influence.
