New Logo and Wrestling for the Computer

Talk about small steps, but I was told by an expert in style and design with an eye for what works, i.e., my wife R, that my logo had some issues. With that in mind, I dove into photoshop and tweaked it a little, and voila, a new design. If you look at the old one, you probably can't see the difference, but to an anal-retentive neurotic like me, the change is striking. I'm guessing this, and many things, will go through many incarnations before I'm through, which could be never.

One funny note is that the kids have been learning French on the Howe Library website, and it's a lot of fun and I have to confess, the lesson is well designed. Not too fast, and lots of repetition. And best of all, they have fun with it. Because of this, however, my computer is in high demand.

Also, A&N have taken a keen interest in my website and hover constantly while I'm learning the ropes, firing off continual suggestions and critiques. It's cute as heck, but can be exhausting at times, especially when I'm trying to learn a new trick... and failing miserably. In a moment that you have to love, and is so emblematic of our kids, I asked A&N to give me some space while I tried to negotiate my way through the design software, so they went and got their binoculars and sat a few feet back and watched me. The advice, of course, never stopped, but at least I had some breathing room.

Until the next time, thanks for reading.
