Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do
with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon.

naturally like your web site but you need to check the spelling on several of your posts.
Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very troublesome to inform the
truth nevertheless I will surely come again again.

When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time
a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

Thanks a lot!
