What theme shall we use?

see the WordPress page

This is using the new TwentyFourteen theme,

but with no featured posts in the six top slots.

It has an excellent menu system and is responsive, it works well on smartphones.

But its not perfect.


I would like a list of posts with excerpts of the first 50ish words, not the full length of the latest post on the homepage like now (9Jan2014)
