NEW LOOK, SAME SEARING MENOPAUSAL WISDOM


Ask, and you shall receive, Pastor Utmo!

Yes, my old college pal and former fellow newshound, Joanne Utley, pointed out that while she enjoys reading The Home Stretch, the copy (small, white print on black background) was -- her 50-plus year-old eyesight being what it is -- a tad hard to read.

She was oh, so right.

So, voila! While nibbling on chocolate chip cookies, I changed the colors, the fonts...and, like the enlarged print edition of Reader's Digest, I increased the text size just a wee bit to make it easier to read.

Indeed, The Home Stretch -- like its author -- needed a spring makeover. I'll be mixing up the sidebar a bit as well as time permits...

Oh, and you might also notice that the visitor counter moved to the top of the sidebar. We're nearing the 10,000 visitor mark (yee-haw!), which may well be reached prior to my blog's fourth anniversary in July! Hey, it's the little things that get me through my estrogenless days any more...

Anyway, hope you like it, Utmo, and find it easier to read.

New look, but the same, searing menopausal meanderings, er, wisdom...

Personally, I find the new color scheme rather enchanting...

Let me know what you think...

And as always, thanks for reading The Home Stretch, brought to you (not quite daily but, depending on fluctuating hormone levels, at least once a week -- if not twice when I am inspired) by Leap And The Net Will Appear Enterprises!

Hey blogger chick:

Chocolate chip cookies have been at the heart of most changes throughout history - like what I see...keep up the good work!

Hey blogger chick:

That naughty sense of humor of yours - remniscent of Katherine (sp?) Heigel in a sort of Meg-Ryan-meets-Goldie-Hawn kind of way.

I don't get around as regularly as I'd like, but when I do, it's always a hoot.
