The bird has flown.
For sometime now, I've had a bright, chirpy bird at the banner head of this blog. I'd looked at several free template sites, but never found anything to convince me to update. Every time I found an image I liked, the color contrast between text and background were poor. That goes against everything I ever learned about web design. Text must be readable. No matter where I looked for templates, I never found anything I liked as well as my "bird".
Blogger announced a new series of template designs and I just had to take a look. When I looked at the first design under "picture window", I fell in love. Here are all the elements I was looking for: a picture indicating travel, excellent contrast between type and background, a nice font. Well, I guess you can see all that for yourself.
So here I am, updated. I hope you like it.
