I love this theme. I thought it might prove to be too cute for me. Instead, I find it cozy, colorful, and delightful. I spent a while finding the configuration that worked best for me. It was worth every moment. I'm recommending this theme to my friends. As a new small, online business owner, my are tight, so I can't donate any USD at this time. But when things pick up a bit, I will return and donate what I can. Until then, let me offer this THANK YOU!! Marian

I spent a while fine-tuning my display to my liking. I chose not to use the icon but to have the cities/coun tries displayed at the bottom of the screen, with the flags showing. Too cool! Thanks, Marian P.S. I don't care for the icon, which looks more like a black circle than a depiction of the earth and strongly suggest a redesign. Just an idea
