Sticky Top Post

Howdy. We've moved from Cayce, but St. Elizabeth of South Rose Hill or Lizette de Waccamaw de Sud just don't do it for me.

More Tweaking

Izzy has commented, appropriately, that something at Flickr is making the badge (the randomly changing picture collection) take forever to load lately. This means that other sidebar elements, including the blogroll, are taking forever and ever to load.

Fix: Got rid of the badge. I've put up links to several photo collections, and may occasionally post really spiffy photos on the sidebar or at the top.

Speaking of "at the top," I decided to add a banner pic. It's one we cobbled together from shots taken on a balcony in Little Switzerland in October of 2006. We were using the low-res digital that we'd gotten free with the IMac in 1999 (I believe that's the correct year), but we were pleased enough to be able to record the lovely views.

I've also added, tongue thoroughly in cheek, a "Seasons Greetings" pic.

Other changes include trying to enhance readability for those whose eyes are aging like mine. Yes, this means I'm not doing work typing this afternoon. What were the chances of that happening?

Mr. and Mrs. Michelin hope you and yours are having a wonderful Advent.

Well, if I were posting a tongue-in-cheek holiday greeting, it would be very different.

The tweaking results look very nice. I usually read your posts through Bloglines (, so I don't always see anything but the text. This time, I decided to pop over and take a look.

Not only are the colors nice for those of us with aging eyes, but the layout works great when I set the font to a very large size. Enlarging the fonts results in things not fitting for most sites, but not yours.

Good job with the tweaking... very pleasing and aesthetically soothing. Hope you and St. Izzy are well!!! "Season's Greetings"
