Hi Manic.......

.....with respect to your sidebar dropping........I wonder if you deleted the August 30 addendum to your post....the piece where you scream yer head off and it goes across the whole width of your blog....if that would get your sidebar back where it should be?? Dunno but you could try it and see if that works.
