Around Memorial day I received a Netflix delivery. Usually, they have some advertisement on the outside flap about new releases or exclusive content. This time it was different. This time it showed an illustration of Poppy flowers with an excerpt from a poem singing the sacrifice of soldiers during the Civil War. This struck me as artistic and patriotic. This moved me into the meaning of memorial day and did away with the tired bunting of stars and stripes. A cord was struck in me and I decided that if a need to feature a holiday ever came up I would go the route of art and meaning rather than empty and expected tradition. Think Christmas!

Pinterest. The latest social networking must have. Everybody wants it, regardless if they know what to do with it. Nevertheless, it's our job to add "Pin It" to a website. Pinterest comes with an easy-to-use plug-in that you just slap onto a web page, but it doesn't allow you to customize the Pin It button beyond what's provided. The button script inserts locked-down html, css and click events to the page but what to do when a client insists on changing the artwork to match their site's theme? I've seen several complex scripts that can get the job done but wouldn't it be sweet if all it took was a few well placed CSS rules? Take a look.
