After many years of faithful duty with the US Forest Service, their beloved fire prevention mascot was unceremoniously "retired." Still in the prime of his life and bearing one of the world's most recognizable faces, he quickly found work as a spokesman for the world's leading exporter of diamonds.
I looked at your blog site and I think it's a good idea. I've had to use the text-only version of your newsletter because the graphic version was too big for my email system. This will eliminate that problem and I'll be able to see the pictures. However, I have some comments:
Stand up, raise your right hand, and repeat after me: "I will never use the color pink for any text ever again". It's completely impossible to read. Further, you need to take a better look at combinations of colors you use. White text on a blue background is hard to read.
Watch your font sizes. Some of them are so small that they can't be read. My eyes have been working for over sixty years so they're getting a little tired. Nothing should be smaller than 10-point. Also watch the big fonts. Some of those were so large that they overlapped adjacent letters making the whole thing impossible to read. You also used some fonts that are very hard to read. Just because it exists doesn't mean you should use it. Keep it simple.
Keep up the good work. I look forward to the blog version.
Bubba and Junior were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up. A blond lady walked by and asked what they were doing.
"We're supposed to find the height of the flagpole," said Bubba, "but we don't have a ladder."
The woman took a wrench from her purse, loosened a few bolts, and laid the pole down. Then she took a tape measure from her pocket, took a measurement & announced, "Eighteen feet, six inches," and walked away.
Junior shook his head and laughed. "Ain't that just like a dumb blond? We ask for the height, and she gives us the length".
Bubba and Junior are currently doing government work supervising the reconstruction of those New Orleans Levees.
