It’s a work in progress but everything should work now


Keeping titles short

And mastering the art of pix. This is actually easier on this new format. This is one of our prettier...

We are functional again.

I'm not sure how this works, but we are up. Some of you with phones may notice better functionality---the inability to resize was one of the reasons the old site was wheezing.

I'm kind of liking this theme.
