  1. THANKS!

    I just realized I am in some serious violation right now because I have an add under a drop-down menu. I am probably going to ditch the drop-down and switch to direct menu links to pages with links listed… And I JUST got my blog looking how I wanted it :)…

    I appreciate the heads up!
