"Sales slow during the summer months. Many people are on vacation. The second period of slow production near the end of the run was probably also affected by conversion of production to the Metropolitan 16A. Norman"

Text Background Color

Posted by Joseph W Strickland on December 29, 2016 at 6:19pm 3 Comments

I am wondering if there is any way to change the background color displayed with the text of posts by members. I have difficulty in reading the text with the gray background color. I have had cataract surgery and have to use a magnifying glass in order to read the posts. A white background makes it easy for me to read the posts without resorting to the magnifying glass. I was able to make this change on my personal page, but not here on the forum or blogs.
