This is not the post I was planning on making tonight….
I’ve been working on a new piece of functionality for the blog which would automagicly change the side image / menu icon based on the the season / month / holiday / my mood / etc. This would make that part of the site feel a little more dynamic.
Since it’s the beginning of December I had set things up to change the side image to a Christmas tree and the icon to a snowflake. I saw it change at midnight was was preparing a post announcing it when I heard about President Bush (41)’s passing. So I swapped out the image to a portrait of the President and changed the icon to the American Flag (font awesome doesn’t give me a half mast option). I plan on keeping things this way until his funeral after which the Christmas Decoration will go up.
I’ll post the module in a couple of days (I want to refactor the code) but I like the functionality.
RIP George HW Bush
