The Blog Design
Welcome to the new face of the blog. If you’re reading this when the post is new, then the site looks different than it did last week. If you’re reading this from far in the future — please send word if you’re DAMNED DIRTY APES! Also, readers from the future should realize that I may have changed my design more than once by the time they got to this post, so they won’t really know what I’m talking about today.
For those of you who are here today, I hope you like the changes. I just wanted to simplify things and get rid of that garish red color. The sidebar is gone, but you can still access the same information from the menu bar above or on the footer below. It’s all there. The new theme uses a 960 pixel design so it’s easy for folks to read on most devices, including tablets. Go ahead, try it on your iPad. There’s a separate mobile template for phones by default. I’m also starting to upload slightly larger images. They still show as 900 pixels on the display, but you can click it to get a 1200 pixel pop-up display. As a reminder, all of my images are Creative Commons. Feel free to use them as long as you give me credit and link back to this site.
Even though it’s been around for years, I finally had my first ride on Splash Mountain not long ago. To think that I avoided it because I didn’t want to get soaked. Turns out there really wasn’t that much water, even though it sprayed me in the face at the end. However, I now have an entirely new reason to avoid it. That ride is one of the creepiest things I’ve ever been through in my life. I’m still having nightmares from Song of the South.
