  1. I get a consistent problem with your 'bog. Sometimes the failure completely locks-up Firefox; most of the time I eventually get a diagnostic “Failed to load data for element : "product-list" data-uri: "http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=tTIv-f0HM9JdF0EnuMj6udg&output=html"”. In any case, although I've appreciated this 'blog, it isn't practical for me to visit with this problem, and I cannot in good conscience keep it on my own 'blog's list of links.
