Not So Easy Like Sunday

THE BIG THING:  I know this is "Easy Like Sunday" day, but it wasn't.  Not anything bad, just something that drove me nuts all night...

About midnight, I decided that I wanted to make our little personal graphic yellow background.  I've always wanted to.  It looked like this...


I always felt it was a bit lame, with the white background.  But I could never get through to give the background a color.

I know, I know; to those of you to whom such things come easy, it is easy.  But I fought with PhotoShop for 3 hours last night.  PhotoShop and I are not the best of friends.  Nothing in it does "quite" what I think it is going to do.  It hates me.  You would think I had taken its sister out on a bad date once...

But perseverance has merit.  I introduce you to our NEW LOGO!

TA DA!








PhotoShop surrendered after a hard-fought battle...  One of us had to win, and I was the more determined...  In good spirit, PhotoShop has agreed to be more cooperative in the future (but only time will tell), and for my part, I have agreed to read the manual more often.  Cooperation goes both ways...

I also want to thank Ayla and Iza for their good advice ("stop yelling at the computer") and for their constant typing on the keyboard while I was struggling to make (um "request") PhotoShop do what I wanted.

All's well that ends well...
