Nice, simple and useful. Would, however, be nice with more customization of background images.

Love it and have alternated between this and one other for years without issue until past few days; weather fails to function properly (will only reflect Spain, not local weather) and as of today it keeps spinning and will not load. Hope it is soon fixed as I adore it; it is beautifully done. Many thanks!
