new design coming


I'm going to revamp the design here again. Here's a couple of possibilities for a header. One is going towards research, the other nature. Of course there'd be supporting graphics like the one below, on the left, in the body of the blog--that is, I'd create a theme consistant with the header.

What do you prefer?

The picture on top was of a hornet visiting me while I was reading on my back deck earlier this week. The metal you see is the chair I was on and the blue is my jeans. The picture below I took today while Tach, the fellow I work with, was slicing some tissue for LCM work we'll be doing next week. The metal objects on the dry ice are tumor sections that have been embedded in OCT to allow us to make very thin slices--sections--with a microtome. We then use those sections, mounted on slides, to isolate individual cells so that we can remove the RNA for microarray experiments. Science is so thrilling.

I don't understand... you are going to redo your blog every time you post?? Or are you going to stop the variety and only post on basically one topic? I like the spider picture better than the research logo, but certainly don't want to read about bugs...

You are trying to confuse me, aren't you?
Teresa said…
Oops... that wasn't a spider! LOL. My vision isn't what it used to be... same idea though!

I prefer the hornet because there is color in the pic.

I like the one with the hornet. Mostly because it has blue in it, and it's such a pretty shade of blue.

I prefer the one with the hornet in it! Both are very cool pictures though and I look forward to seeing the new, new look!

well since you are revamping I can tell you... I thought the hairy ear of the cat when it was loading was actually an old man... lmao!

sorry...

nice blog anyway... (hoping you dont hate me for being honest lol)

I think I like the hornet one better.
The Hornet would be my choice because it is nature, and has broader coverage, including science...That would be my vote...
I'm here from Michele my dear Dave, and when I clicked on your name it took me to some other blog that I was unfamiliar with and couldn't leave a comment on..so, I got to you in a very special way--My Blogroll! (lol)

Science does it for me, gimme a test group, control group, and a double blind thrown in!!
I like the research, looks like you and i are in the minority :(
Dave said…
I don't mind but its very difficult to read the posts through all these - what are they footprints, raindrops???


Here from Michele's today.
Dave said…
Back again from Michele's and all clear this time, must have been my browser?

I like both - I know that's not very helpful;-) ummm, maybe the sciency one a little better, because it's different to anything else I've seen.

here from micheles today, although I am tryig to catch up on my blog visits!
I looked at the two pictures again and I really really love that first one...it has so many interesting colors and shapes and I like that there are two living things in it..The Hornet & You!
The other is a very interesting photograph too, but doesn't have any "life" in it, for me...
Here from Michele again, my dear Rick...(I'm following you...)

I prefer the hornet. ;-) Although it does remind me of George Shinn once having the Charlotte Hornets here and that wasn't such a happy thing...well until we kicked him out town. ;-)
barbie2be said…
i vote for the hornet. :)

michele sent me today.

I'm going against majority here but I like the second. I think what it is is more clear. The hornet was clear but not what was going on. You don't have a hornet in your helmet but the analyticalness of your mind is brought through in the second image.
