New Design


I have decided to change the overall design/theme for the Blog. For some reason post titles were not showing up on the front page (a recent thing), necessitating a change in the theme. Hopefully readers will find the change acceptable, even though there isn’t much in the way of an image on the front page anymore. The front page format is a little different and may take some time to get used to.
