Default Forum background colour change

I've changed the forum background colour (what you see beyond the limits of the header image/forum template borders) from plain white to a slight warm grey/off white as I think it is easier on the eyes... any thoughts? Does it look OK on your monitor?

Errr.. glad you told me... I don't often pick up on cosmetic changes and it gets me into no end of trouble - not noticing new hairdos, nails, lipstick, perfume, etc

Yes, it does! It's not really grey-grey, but rather like grey with a hint of pink in it.

......and for me: shades of yellow (with o-so- subtle taste-of-fig and hint-of-apple)....it's all in the eye (glass) of the beholder (imbiber)

Ah, you've been drinking cider, is that it?

I'd love to have a Belgian rosé beer right now!

I can't tell half the time if women are talking about colors or shampoos or actual fruit.

It often doesn't matter.
And if the sentence changes tone near the end it's a question and you must reply, "yes".
I am growing wise indeed.

LOL, true!

Many of these products have come to resemble each other a lot over the past few years, anyway.

Actually, did anyone read the book, American Psycho? I remember is had a profound effect on my ability to think BAD thoughts.... Often used to wish I'd never read it.

I'm afraid that I did read it, and I probably wish that I hadn't too.

dont get me started on beauty products... my good lady is a beauty therapist and so a believer... but if there was one anti-wrinkle anti ageing product that actually worked there would be only one such product cos all the rest would be out of business.

Still it pays for the flights....
