  1. You delete comments telling you that your site has become nearly unreadable because of html/layout problems? Really?

    1. I was holding your comment yesterday until I could investigate the matter,which I did right away. It appears some html I recently added made the blog look out of kilter in older versions of internet explorer. Because it looked fine in the newest version of Internet Explorer (version 10) I had not realized it until you pointed it out. I removed the html and now you should be able to view the blog as before. My apologies and thanks a bunch for making me aware of the issue!


Thank you for commenting on!
