WP theme updates

There’s a theme update for the base theme I’m using, once I update I’ll loose the changes that I made to the theme in the first place.  There is a way around loosing my updates, but of course they don’t TELL you that until its time to do the updates in the first place.  *gripe grumble* So at some point in the near future the look of the blog will likely change, at least briefly, while I figure out how to do all that and then do the update, so if you’re here reading this and the blog looks odd its not just you, I promise.
