It’s been a week of change.
This site has finally received a switch from Thesis to Genesis. The initial look of Mission Engage was exciting, but it needed a color that would allow you to come and visit, stay awhile, kick back and rest your feet.
It needed a color that was easier on the eyes…
And would be easy to set up, plugin a theme and go.
So after installing Genesis and some child themes on two other client sites, Mission Engage adopted the base along with the Lifestyle child theme…
But that’s not all of the changes that have occurred across the Internet this week…
It seems something was in the air. Everyone had an opinion on something or a story to tell. Here’s the top five from this week…

Change is good.
Sometimes though, change kicks our butts…
Take technology for example.
We all want to use the latest gadgets quickly, but sometimes we just get our butts stomped.
