    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Kudos

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied
    on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about,
    why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos
    to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
