Fix #182

This PR adds an org-journal-file-header string that is inserted at the top of new journal entries. If the value is a function, the result of evaluating the function is inserted. FWIW, here's my experimental configuration for weekly journals:

(defun ndw/org-journal-monday (&optional time)
  "Return the TIME cast back to the previous Monday.
If TIME isn’t specified, the (current-time) is assumed.
If today is Monday, return today."
  (let* ((now    (if time time (current-time)))
         (dow    (string-to-number (format-time-string "%u" now)))
         (delta  (if (= dow 1)
                   (* (- dow 1) (* 24 3600)))))
    (seconds-to-time (- (time-to-seconds now) delta))))

(customize-set-variable 'org-journal-file-header
   (lambda ()                        
     (let ((monday (ndw/org-journal-monday)))
       (insert "#+TITLE: ")
       (insert (format-time-string org-journal-date-format monday))
       (insert "\n#+STARTUP: showeverything\n#+FILETAGS: :Journal:\n\n"))))
