    We are putting a new website together for our farm and would appreciate input from the fine members of this community. Suggestions are appreciated from all. I know from experience that fresh eyes and different views on what makes a good website is invaluable. Most everything is functional now. Lots of content still to add over the next few days. Some of you may appreciate the humor in the blog posts. Especially "The Milk of Human stupidity" one. We do poke fun at ourselves and our misadventures.

    Take a peek and tell me what you think. www.wildthingorganics.com

    Thanks

    Great site, I enjoyed it - however, you've got some kind of font there that doesn't seem to translate well in the latest Firefox. It's right over the picture (I do love Green Acres!) and says:

    Our little farm's online journal

    that attempts to reconcile rural fantasies and post-urban realities

    I can read it above but can't read it at all on the page. It's also on the lower right-hand side in the third column under the chicken:

    Visit our forum

    Just wanted to let you know.

    Expand your screen on the browser by hitting the little + and it should end the overlap.

    Will check the font out.

    It's not an overlap (I meant it's the text that's over the picture, not that the text is over the picture, sorry for the confusion), the font is just illegible. I always run my browser in a full window and my monitor is 17".

    Thanks for clearing that up Reinbeau. So I am assuming that the text above the pic "Our little farm's online journal that attempts to reconcile rural fantasies and post-urban realities" The text on the top banner and the text for the forum link are all an issue. They are the same font "Papyrus". It does work in my firefox browser on the mac, and on the pc with IE, so I guess I need to see what is up with the new version of firefox for windows.

    More giggles coming! I have about 12 more farm animal story pages to add in the next few days.

    Thanks for the input folks.

    I tried looking at it in Explorer and just AOL but the pics ran over the words and some of the words were odd symbols.
