New masthead

As readers will see, we now have a new masthead for the blog.  This was designed by one of our regular readers – and website designer – Carl.H.  He produced it in response to a comment on one of the caption competitions.  I thought it was splendid and so now it adorns the site.  Hope readers like it and many thanks to Carl.H for his sterling work.

    A thumbs up for Carl.

    Is that the night view from across the bridge? I’ve probably never stood there and looked, certainly not at night, although I’ve certainly crossed the road on the north side of the bridge and come up the steps by Big Ben from the underground station.

    • Lord Norton says:

      Dave H: It is. You get a magnificent view of the Palace in the evening, from whichever direction you approach it. I think one of the most impressive views at night is looking up at Victoria Tower from the base of the Tower.

    Victoria Tower by Night

    You`re very welcome, I have a higher resolution one waiting for when you aquire your own site and WordPress.

    The larger, better resolution version :

    How your own WordPress site could look, roughly.

    Classy, well done Carl.

    @Carl – is it possible to change the masthead with the time of day?
    @Frank – glad to see your ban on British blogs has been lifted.

    Hi Lady Tizzy,
    The wonderful thing about wordpress is that like Apple is has thousands of wonderful plug-ins which are like apps. I know there is code for changing headers automatically and for a rotating header on timer, so yes it is possible.

    There are a great deal of things you can do with WordPress BUT most are for use on wordpress installed on your own website not a site which is limited but free. With a bit of help you can setup your own WordPress website for less than £60 a year, which also gives you personalised email etc. This cost is purely domain hosting costs with mySql, I`m not trying to sell anything here.

    Finally! I’ve been saying all along that Constitutional Guru Norton has the power of levitation, and now there is proof for all the world to see! (Pity his legs are not visible in the picture, but I’m sure they are crossed in the lotus position.)

    I also note that His Lordship is out of the Palace while Parliament is sitting, judging from the Ayrton light. I’ll be kind, however, and assume that it’s the House of Commons, wearily approving Lords amendments to their bills.

  8. Carl.H says:

    Might I suggest my Lord a Terms & Conditions page, see LoTB for ideas, and whatever other pages you feel you would like. Also think what links you would like.

    Your webmaster is doing a stirling job in his spare time, he is to be congratulated. Once this is completed I dare say he will be much in demand.

    • Lord Norton says:

      Carl.H: Excellent idea. Craig Beaumont is indeed doing a splendid job. He is already much in demand, not least by me! This is not the only website he oversees for me.
