I fiddled with The Malt Shop's template by adding graphics from a cool graphics site that was down for a while. Very retro. Tack-o-Rama. The malted in the blender at the top tho is from somewhere else, but for the life of me, I can't recall where I found it so I can't give proper credit. I tried Googling malteds, shakes, blenders, beverages, and clipart and slogged thru some of the gazillion hits, but no luck. But the b&w graphics are credited. The b&w tiles are cropped from a piece of art I did in the '70s with markers. "
Meanwhile, I did some fiddling here by adding some things to the sidebar, namely the Web Surfing Blogs folder from my Bloglines subscriptions. Those are the sites I mostly get the fun links from that I occasionally post here. I added the Book/Libraries folder to both Occasional Blog and Shelly's Book Shelf. I'm really happy now with how all my blogs look, tho that doesn't mean I won't fiddle now and then, because to be honest, it's too much fun not to do it. BTW, the graphic above is from a Dover sampler. I have some nice Halloween graphics from Dover that I'll be using here later this month. "
