But I do and I did and here it is:
I knew the template would cost me: plenty of folks hate white type on black background.
I've tinkered with other ideas but I like the theme I have going now. I'll probably continue to thinker until I can make something totally different. Maybe black type on gray or something. We'll see.
As for the moon phase and the Weather Pixie:
Moon phase is gone as of now. No more moon phase.
The Weather Pixie is handy because it gives the current temperature at my local airport, which is the official temperature for my city, which is necessary to know for work, which is our only real defense for reading my blog at work. It's a reach, yes, but it may come in handy later. If I come across a weather thing with no pixie attached, then great.
Oh and the BlogRoll Me! is now up, so feel free!
I'll continue to 'strive for five' but consider four smacks a good starting place.
