    Very cool! Benji really helped me out a couple of times way back then. Please pass along my greetings. If he gives you a quizzical look and asks, "Who?", just tell him I'm the big, tall guy from Eastern Guilford in the early 80's.

    The website looks good.
    Well done, and Good Luck

    Why do I like a bell that Points UP ?

    Re: new web site

    Before I say this, these are the points that are wrong with it, from my point of view, if I don't mention it, then it's fine, so don't take this as a negative post.

    1) your images appear to be very professional, are they yours? if not, have you got permission to use them? if not, you will have to remove them

    2) I don't like the way that the body of the website merges into the margin, I find it gives the lower half of the website a lack of order, which does not fit with the neatness of the top half.

    3) Is the clip art at the top yours, and is it your logo? If yes to both, I find that it too complex, and out of place in a quite minimalistic website.

    4) This may only be on my computer, but at the bottom of the background image on every page, I get a black line, I also get them on the contact page link at the top.

    I like it and am intrigued. I would need to buy a webcam first.
