New Banner!

So what do you think of my new banner? It took me a few hours to get all the settings right so it looked how I wanted it. Leave me a comment and let me know if you like this one or the old one better.

*New One

Old One

*And no I didn't take the photo in the banner (I wish I could say I did). I scanned it from an issue of Arizona Highways, a magazine about the state of Arizona which features high quality photography from around the state. I believe this picture was taken south of Phoenix near Tucson.

That's a tough one. I like both for different reasons. The old one because of the cactus looking like an 'image' and the new one cuz it's purdy.

Toss a coin.

I think the new one is more friendly. The old one more edgy. I guess it depends what mood you are going for. personally - I prefer friendly :D

OMG I just noticed now that your dessert image in your old one is also a radiograph. I have looked at that for months now and it just camed to me DUH!

I like the new one better tho.

Miss minnesota? Today it is 72 degrees in Mankato. Planning a trip to Duluth in August! Can't wait.

Many of my friends read your blog, but we all wonder what you really think of MN??? Let us know.

Yeah, sometimes I miss Minnesota, not so much the weather but my friends and family. Its not an easy thing to relocate to a new city across the country from your home. My wife and I would definately consider moving back to MN if things dont work out here for us.

I also miss all the lakes and green vegetation. Arizona is especially lacking in lakes. There are a few, but they are man made and pretty spread out throughout the state.

I was in Duluth in August once, on our way to Lutsen, and it was beautiful. August is definately the best time to visit the city (as opposed to during January, for example!). I would consider living there someday if it wasnt so cold all the time.

Thanks for the great comments about my blog, I hope you and your friends continue to enjoy my site.

Hey Dustin! That's a toughie! I like both. I like how the cactus is a radiographic image in the old one and I like the picture and the colors in the new. If I had to choose, I think I'd choose the new one. Have a great weekend!
