These are actually mountains visible along Highway 1 between Canmore and Banff.  It's a shame that so much of the picture cannot be shown on the tiny space afforded by the banner, but we've increased the amount of image visible by finally shrinking the space taken up by the various info boxes up there.  The "theme" that is used by BetterMost was written in a bizarre mix of style sheets and other coding, which appears to have been cobbled together.  It makes modifications very time consuming, and the theme really needs to be rewritten from the ground up.  John is hoping with v2.0 of the SMF software, someone is working on this already, but if not, we'll probably have to do it ourselves.

Hi Phillip,

I told myself about a thousand times that I should spend less time in front of the screen - and you are helping me a great deal with the last color change - I already start feeling kind of sick!  :laugh:

I loved the blue color....IŽd love green as well, but this red is driving me mad, sorry.

I love the mountain pic!

We change background colors with the passing of every season.  Most folks need at least a day or two to get accustomed to the changes, and we typically make minor adjustments to them.  I think we're missing some of the pale yellows we had last year.

Hi Phillip,

does that mean it will stay like this until winter?  :o Then I better keep my sunglasses on, or go on reading my book, Middlesex from Jeffrey Eugenides, a very good book by the way...

I like the rusty-orange-red background myself. Very autumnal.  :)

I love the photo of the beautiful fall foliage against the backdrop of the mountains, too. Thanks!

I like it too!  Warm colors, looks very Autumnal on my screen, soft pinky oranges and reds.   Are we going to have some fall color in the photo at the top of the page too?

This morning---my eyes watered and my head hurt.

Then this evening--no side effects!

Maybe the head and eyes thing was because it was Monday  morning!
