Like changing out the calendar, making out a list of resolutions, and writing the previous year on a check, I've changed the look of the blog again. I've got a three-year streak now. There are two main reasons for this. One, I get bored with the look of the site, and two, my last layout change inadvertantly and not on purpose copied the look of a friend's blog, as well as the look of other blogs I've seen throughout the year. That burnt orange text has gotten pretty popular.
Anyway, I love old maps and the like, so when I saw this template I thought I'd give it a try. It necessitated a new banner, so I got to keep my rudimentary art skills honed to a dull edge.
Anyway, happy new year to all!
