    Thank you Jacey, this is an incredible site !!

  3. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your website.
    It appears as if some of the written text on your content
    are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?

    This might be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.

      Looks fine to me, if you have it not full screen and don’t refresh much then that happens but if you refresh it when you change the size of the website it should work fine

  4. This information is worth everyone’s attention. Where can I find out more?
