Too cold to be much other than winter. It's rainy (as many people associate with winter in the Bay Area). It's windy (as I associate with winter in the Bay Area). It's cold (as most people associate with winter in general).
What better time to put up a new theme than winter?
It was long past time to change the theme, anyway. Too many people think I actually like my dogs with the old one. Why else would I have pictures of the at the top of the page?
As if I'm not allowed to have a favorite.
My favorite being, of course, Ariel's cat.
