Knowing that most people do not like change I still did it anyway. I needed a change. Changing seasons, wardrobes, and hairdos are a part of life and now so is my blog header. I stare at that cooktop many times per day and I wanted something else, something new and special, a different thing about Big RK that I enjoy. So I changed the header. Maybe it was too much too fast, done without warning, or a care to how you felt about it. The shame of it all. I need your help. Does the new header identify with the emotion, thoughts, and content of this blog? Do I sound needy? Am I whining too much. OK, I’ll stop.
Here is the old header, the one you have visited since this blog was born. Sniffle. It is of my cooktop with all the tea and coffee things to the right and knives, salt and pepper to the left. The tea kettle is always in that one spot ready for tea. I feel that other than the kitchen table, the cooktop is were all the action takes place. At least the good action. If it were a picture of the sink, that would be bad action. Dishes. Shudder. Click on the pictures for a better look.
Below is the new header. The red drapes that hang in the BRK were designed by me and sewn by my mother-in-law. I love bees and Fleur De Lis, they seem so royal together. The pottery on the left is part of my Polish pottery collection. I have decorated my entire kitchen with it. I picked up most of the pieces on my jaunts to Poland while living in Germany. Each piece has a story to tell. Finally the quote, “a regular gathering of distinguished guests.” That is the essence of my home, a gathering place for our distinguished guests. I feel that way about my blog too. When you visit the BRK, you are my most distinguished guest.
If you have been visiting me a while, thank you, I appreciate your loyalty and comments, but have you subscribed to my RSS? It’s right there on the side bar, go ahead, it will make you feel so much better. By doing so, you will be alerted when I make a new blog entry. If you are new to my blog, welcome. Come on in a sit a spell. If you like what you see, subscribe as well. What is RSS?
Thank you for letting me use you all today. Nothing like free labor. As Bartles and Jaymes used to say, “thank you for your support.”
UPDATE- Although the poll results displayed the new header with a 3 point lead over the old header at close, I received emails, phone calls, and gossip that the old header was truly favored. I went back to the old with the new quote and font color. I like it. I like red and gold together, very nice. Thank you for voting and helping me define the feel of this site. Oh, you gals at Dad’s office thanks for voting! Someday maybe I’ll hear from you.
