the last template got ugly quickly, and as a result, i dragged the file to my recycle bin.
so dody and i went back to the drawing board. three minutes later, we came up with a new approach- themes. for example a beach theme or a metropolis theme, as shown above. there could be several of them (i.e. desert, jungle, mountains, food (cooking), girls) and dody suggested a rotation about every week or so.
