Yes, that's my house up there. My real house is not on a hill, and it has mismatched windows and the siding is half old, half new. Funny how you can manipulate images.
This is a variation on the Blogger K1 template. The rainbow background is from a photo of the sky the evening of Jim Concannon's funeral. Jim was a painter. His wife, Penny, tells me of the rainbow that evening:
People who saw it thought of it as one more great paint job from Jim and his Uncle Don, already there, who taught him the beauty of a great painted house....
I had to degrade the image somewhat to make a file that will, hopefully, load quick enough to keep the site readable.
So let me know what you think. Too busy? Does it read in your browser, on your monitor? I will keep an eye on the traffic, see if it is attractive to readers, or if they glance and click on.
