Will that be the end of your gorgeous green header?  :pout:

maybe not. It seems to keep defaulting to the Kubrick theme (which I hate) so it may be back to the usual.

OH well back to the drawing board it won't stick. And speaking of bored.... I'm tired of that template  :annoyed:

I just love your custom-headers---particularly the last & second-last ones.  Can't wait to see what you design next, oh mistress of Photoshop  :mrgreen:

I'm royally pissed. I don't know what has changed other than the Code Pink post, but now IE keeps rejecting my blog saying it can't open the site.

it works intermittently.  :rant2:

Everyone switch to something else.  8)

I never use IE, except if I have to download Firefox so that I can return to not using IE.  :)  I remember having troubles back in the days when I was doing websites.  Netscape would always work and IE never would.  Proprietarial software stinks!

So I'm going to start coding a template from scratch soon.  :shock:  That should be interesting.

But for now a new header and colour change. What say ye?

Gawgeous!  Like the bigger-green-gals header.  And the taupe/beige-ish background works well. I think it might even be easier to read than blacktxt-on-whitebkgd.

That's very elegant Debra.

I might suggest a more earthy tone of green for that side bar/table. But the banner is divine!

The original picture looks like this http://vargaspinups.info/esquire_1951/p ... _april.jpg (http://vargaspinups.info/esquire_1951/pinup_esquire_1951_april.jpg)

But while the tray of cigs would work for *some* around here ;) it doesn't work for me. SO I did my best to turn it into a keyboard.  :mrgreen:

Thanks for pointing that out. I had meant to get back to that. Changed now.

I much prefer the keyboards - it updates the image and refers to it as a web-based production.

I wondered about the cord things... At first I thought they might be tails on some kind of bizarre costume. I think they need keys to really seal the deal :) Nice layout overall. I like the sidebars on each side better than the "both sidebars on one side" of the BnR Front Page.

I've had a number of trolls and usually just spam or delete them but I've decided to try a troll bridge, thereby showcasing their stupidity without allowing access to spew all over the comment areas.

Great idea Debra. I can see the potential for hours of entertainment.
