It was probably way too soon to hit you with this.  You just got here.   My apologies.   If you ever decide to allow me to use it, here is an example of what I did with Julie's avatar.  It is intended solely as a compliment to an image that inspires me.   No rush and once again... welcome to Our Salon.
