New banner!

My new(ish) blog has a new banner! I really liked the old banner, the one with the ice:


but it does not fit with the themes I'm going for now.  Kept the text, though.  I like that text.

Also, interestingly,  I found in my files a much nicer version of the old banner -- it was clearer, less gray, all that.  I'm not sure why I didn't use it.  I mean, this one's foggier, and the text looks more behind-the-ice, which is certainly nicer looking.  But the other one was less depressing.

Dear former readers, if any of you are in attendance: While I'm fixing things up and putting them back together, is there anything on the blog you miss, or would want back?  Let me know in the comments.
