    I don't think the background looks stupid at all. I like it.

    Looks good to me too! Nice background - not too dark to be distracting.

    Actually, I think you have done a fantastic job on the background. When I build websites many times I find that I just can't get it right, especially when I am up until 3am working on it....then I give up and go to bed. The next morning I wake up fresh and find the site actually looks pretty good. I think you will find this the case today. Very nice background!

    Looks good to me too.

    Your up to $51 for 8 eggs. That's incredible.

    I've told a few of you to charge more for your eggs!!!

    Um... you guys... I could be wrong. But I'm pretty sure that listing is not Melanie's. I think she was just posting that as an example of what she wanted.

    I have never made an ad on egg bid, but I'm guessing its similar to making a web page. It looks like on that ad she has taken a photo of her birds and made it very light, then tiled it for the background.

    I believe there is actually a tool you can use to make backgrounds for web pages out of photos. But you could accomplish the same thing with an image editing program like photoshop.
