New Layout

I've changed the blog's template, which I hope will make it easier to read. I've also added labels to the toolbar, so you can see at a glance all the times I've been nice to my friends in the LibDems, for example.

Over the next few weeks I'm planning to add video clips too, but that will require more expert help from Mark B...

It's very pink, isn't it?

The picture at the top's quite easy to customise, like I've done at Bike Darlington.

Looks much better

It is rather pink - one of my so-called friends suggested that I will now attract a much greater audience from people who, erm, like musical theatre...

I've had a couple of disastrous attempts to customise the header with local shots - any advice on how to do this would be very welcome!

I saved the current picture and then opened it in Adobe Fireworks. I put copies on photos we'd taken on a ride over some of the sections, and used partially transparent shapes of a similar colour to the original sections I was replacing to tint the pictures.

The new file was put onto Flickr, and I edited the template file to point to the Flickr version of the photo.

If none of that made sense, I'd be happy to have a play.

Yup, Mike, that's beyond me. If you could help me directly customise the header, I'd be very grateful.
