Thanks for the offering to the community, Wayne. This came together nicely, and the tease/display format of SD works well for some of these entries...http://capoeirarosarubra.com/
Had to tweak the CSS for a couple of standards, which would be GREAT to have in the config instead (I worry about losing edits when/if I upgrade):
* body background color (though I like dark, the green replacement matches the spirit of this brazilian martial art)
* two-column frame (I simply set in a blank text widget to "clear" the right sidebar -- looks good, and there is enough landscape in this theme I don't need to recapture that column... but would be great to have a toggle... not sure how hard that would be)
In nay case -- thanks again, gift received!
