So, what do you think? I wanted to add a couple of new things, and so needed to transition to the latest Blogger formatting, which involved choosing a new template.
The only thing bewildering me a tad is that Blogger specifies the pixel width of the banner image, but then it doesn't occupy the available space, but jams left and top. Wouldn't mind either centering it or filling the width with it.
A change is as good as a holiday, they say. I shall wait for the effect to kick in....!
