Red Flower Day


If you are here you may have noticed a change or two. It was high time to get a new look. This is the same style template as An Island Walk is done in and as I like simplistic designs and dark colours, this is it. I'm not skilled enough to make my own and need the design from the free section, so.....

I'm not finished yet.

I am having trouble with the new font size in Blogger's dashboards. I find it hard to see what I'm doing as the letters are squished to make mispelled words (E's andO's become I's). It is possible it is a change of Foxfire 3 reading Blogger. I'm not sure but it's annoying. I've not been able to read the font in Blogger since the change a month or so ago and it's very frustrating.

Long Time Comin' by Bruce Springsteen was one of the files Putfile deleted a few years ago. It is coming back just for this post. Another song that fits perfectly is Inspired Insanity by the marvelous Phoebe Snow. I have a hundred things to do and I get up this morning, start fooling around with templates and I'm still here with still a hundred things to do and not finished.

If anyone has suggestions or comments about the new look, I'd be happy to hear them. I have limited skills in this area and need all the help I can get.

Cuidado, I run blogger through Foxfire 3 and don't have that font problem. (So does Kat, I believe.) I'm sure you've played around with the fonts inside blogger...this is probably one of those computer things that will miraculously fix itself all of a sudden....

No, Ralph, I would never have played with such a thing if there were such a thing. There is not. It's not all of Blogger. It is only the dashboard. I can't figure it out if I have.

Thanks, Anonymous Alf.

Cuidado- Great new look. I love the clean appearance of the white on black. Very nice!

I like black background for photos on the web so I love the look.
I use FF3 and never had a problem. Strange.

ps Lovely shot :-)

Thanks, Nan. I can change any of the colours at any time if I want a change.

Thanks, Michael. Do you use Blogger for your blogs? It's only the dashboard that is affected. When my comp. crashes a couple of months ago, I got FF3 instead of 2. It was around the same time as the change in the dashboard so I wasn't sure.

Nice look Ma! The black background and sharp pictures are a nice contrast..

BTW, have you heard Springteen's new song from the movie the Wrestler? I think you'd really like it.

I left this comment twice but the first disappeared somewhere into the ether. Thanks about the blog and send me the name of the song please. I'd like to hear it.

Ok, A. Thanks, I'll look for it.
