I preferred the other, but can surely get used to this format. However, it looks like I will have to change my profile picture which appears quite washed out now. BTW, in case anyone wondered WTF the map depicts...

It is a map of Colonial Bladensburg where the darkened square marks a current archaeological dig (Market Master's House) taking place in search of artifacts left behind by wounded American and British militia and soldiers at a make-shift hospital who had participated in the Battle of Bladensburg which occurred in August 1814 during the War of 1812. During the battle, the Americans eventually broke and ran after a last ditch effort to hold by Commodore Joshua Barney and 500 US Marines above the Anacostia River at what is now Fort Lincoln Cemetery before the British entered Washington DC and burned the Capital Building and White House.

A very rare eastern tornado hastened the British from Washington DC and back to their ships at Benedict, Maryland after their victory heading to Baltimore - the Battle of Fort McHenry - and the setting for the writing of the poem that would become the Star Spangled Banner. Bladensburg is my home town. Perhaps I am a little too proud Marylander.

I noticed that too. Not exactly, but close. I'm getting used to it.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.

I does seem like my avatars not standing out like it used to. I may look for something more colorful.

Still no change here. But that was always the way, the last one to have it kick in.

The more colorful your avatar is, the more it stands out. Really noticing that now. : )
