@ Floydm - New site Favorite icon?

I like the "Mini-Loaf" toolbar icon for the site.  At least, it is new to me as I just started seeing it yesterday.  Is it new, or am I just behind the times?

We've actually had a funny bread icon for years, since the site was started, but every time Floyd updates the site module wonky things start happening with the icon and we're not sure why. In fact, when he first started the site, I made him another cute little loaf which was up there for a couple years but got blown away in one of the upgrades and then this one replaced the old one, but we're not sure why sometimes it shows up and sometimes it doesnt. Floyd tried copying it recently to another place on the server to see if the browsers were just not looking in the place they were supposed to, so I guess his "dumb browser trick" might have worked. It's not been uncommon for the thing to only show up on some pages and not others. We've never been able to figure out why (but obviously we also never spent too much time on it either) but glad to hear it seems to be working better now.

I'm not sure when it may have first appeared, but I was checking here yesterday and I don't think it was up there. I'm seeing it today and it is attractive.

I've seen it now too for the past few days.


Never saw it before.   Are we rolling with the times?

For a long time, years I would say, I have seen a bread Icon for the site in my Favorites or bookmarks list. Today I see a boule.


Maybe the Internet routers are associating the IP address with a particular icon.

I just checked my Google Icons in my Bookmarks and I have a total of 6 sites that share the same Boule Icon. Interesting that the Back Home Bakery also has a bread icon but a different one. They are so small I can't really tell what it is but its sort of brown and round. Like my last loaf.Lol
