New favicon

Do you like my new favicon and picture at the right ?

It's one of the cover art images from the book "Ramona and her Mother."  Obviously there are several different editions of the book and several different scenes on the cover art, but this is the one I remember from my childhood.  It depicts a scene (I didn't even have to go on google and look up the details of this scene - I remember reading it) where Ramona and her mother are sitting in the yard and her mother is picking up the dandelion poofs and blowing them.  Ramona is surprised that her mother does this (since all it does is make more dandelions) and then they spend some nice, quiet mother/daughter time together blowing the poofs.

Edited to add: Crap, why isn't the favicon showing up?  It still looks like the random orange/white blogger symbol.

Yep, I see the picture but not the favicon. Cute, though.

My mother, in contrast, has a vendetta against dandilions. She's not above going into the next-door-neighbours' garden to pick off the yellow heads before they go to seed and blow into her garden (and everywhere else). She views not taking care of your own dandelions somewhere near running a meth lab in the litany of possibly neighbour faults.

Then again, she's going a bit funny in her old age...

Also love this. So cute. I fall more and more in love with beverly Cleary every day. Having just read this, Mrs Quimby and Ramona don't actually blow dandelions. I forget the entire story, but on a rough rainy, cold day Mrs Quimby admits sometimes she doesn't want to be practical and what she'd really like to do is blow dandelions, and Ramona feels close to her and says that's what she wants to do too. I think Mrs Quimy and Beezus are fighting (possibly the haircut?). Love it. Am so sad we just finished Ramona Quimby, Age 8.

I cannot believe I got the story wrong. But the sentiment was right, right ?
