When a high school friend of mine returned from a concert in LA circa 1960, she remarked that Joan Baez was amazing but the introductory act was a weird guy that nobody had ever heard of and his lyrics were totally unintelligible. Within a very few years, Bob Dylan’s diction improved to the point that we all knew that “the times they were a changin”.
I’m pleased to report that the same applies to the Splash Pad website and newsletter. The most dramatic change to the latter is in the masthead that now incorporates a freeway-level view of Splash Pad Park compliments of Google Maps. In addition, you may note some subtle improvements in the fonts and formatting that improve readability. These were achieved with a bit of strategic cutting and pasting from an online html tutorial.
The changes to the SplashPad.org website include some alterations to the home page but more importantly, we now have a 10th Anniversary blog and thanks to “LZ” — a long-time subscriber and Adams Point resident, we now have a “Grand Avenue West of 580” blog, as well. These changes reflect some of the input I’ve received from website guru, Raul Audelo, and represent a baby step towards a website that will eventually become far more interactive with regular changes in content.
