About the New Look

Somebody asked me about the new look of the blog and how it came to be. Well, it came to be because I finally figured out how to manipulate Blogger's templates. I'm sure I can do better, but this will do for now. The header photo was one I took on a windy afternoon in the Gambia as about seven pied crows were trying to fly in it. Using a photo editor, I cut the seven birds to four-- you know, to represent us-- and added the text. Let me know what you think.

The original photo, taken May 08, 08. If you squint, you can see the seven birds.
