    Get rid of the calendar and the who's online widget.
    Get a bigger background image so it isn't tiled.
    Get rid of the list style for menu items.
    Get rid of smileys in your posts.
    Pick a navigation and stick with it - either top navigation or sidebar navigation. Two navigation menus is redundant.

    Solid start to an otherwise adequate website.

    thank you.
    not sure if i know what you mean by list style for menu.
    i just plugged the side widget nav menu in yesterday to see which i liked better. do you have a suggestion on which.

    thanks again

    List style is referring to the *'s next to each item in the list. You can change this via css.

    Personally, I like the top menu as its smoother and conserves screen space.

    changes made. thank you very much for your thoughts. makes for a much cleaner site.
    just removed the background image entirely and it looks better.
    i have never done any of this before just learning as i go.
    it is very hard to see the little things when you are looking at so much info.
