    Everyone has been a big help, thank you! I just have one or two more slight issues. The next one is this: I'd like to eliminate a lot of the unused white space between the header and the menu bar. I believe this might be called "padding" but I'm not sure. Here is a look at what I'm talking about: Image Here

    Thank you for your time and consideration....

    That space is being created by the top margins in two places:

    #social-media-icons {
        float: right;
        margin-top: 60px;
    #header #searchform {
        float: right;
        margin: 60px 3.4% 0 3px;

    As noted in your theme's CSS file, you should be making any changes in a child theme or via a custom CSS:

    Any modifications made to this file will be lost if you update the theme.
    Instead, go to Appearance > Theme Options > Layout and enter your custom CSS there or create a child theme.
    Any style attributes declared there will override the ones in this file and will not be lost during theme update.
