You can visit
You'll be asked to trust my self-signed cert; and after that you'll 
still not enjoy a totally secured connection because of non-secure links 
in the document (my flickr photos, I think, are the culptit).  All the 
WordPress-generated links are absolute links to the _non_ secure site, 
since WordPress doesn't (yet) elegantly integrate SSL.

I've been involved in a little bit of discussion about making WordPress 
better support HTTPS:

And I suggest CACert.org for anyone who wants a cert but doesn't want to 
fiddle with the openssl command line.  =)
