Eighteen inches in the hills, and a new look for JH Underground. The masthead is the work of the highly talented graphic designer, carer for the handicapped and blogess, Rachel Stevens, or as she is known in the comments here, “rachel.

wull ... check it out.

Hers is a personal blog with funny and heartfelt writing, hip tunes, and many webcam self-portraits. She chronicles adventures on the rocks, friendships, dance parties, loves and the experience of sitting on babies.

We are much indebted to Rachel for her creativity, and her patience. She is available for design work and can be paid in ginger beer.*

But you are not reading this now. You are out gorging on powder, putting work and responsibilities on hold, for another epic morning.

Thanks to everyone for your feedback on the banner. For anyone keeping track, these are what the old banners looked like. More nifty improvements to come!

*Actually, she can’t be paid in ginger beer.

    Jim, the masthead looks the same to me, but then again I did get quite a bit of snow in my face this morning. Also, “they” say no two snowflakes are alike so maybe the change is miniscule?

    you have to refresh your browser to see the change, if it hasn’t appeared already. may require a “hard” refresh — ctrl, command and R

    your computer stores the parts of web sites that usually don’t change, so the sites load faster.

    it’s been up since Sunday, actually.
