    Your blog is truly odd looking on my iphone 4, can you explain that?

    Needed to log onto my PC to finish reading.

    Were you aware that your website is coming up with
    issues in Opera? I had to open IE to finish reading. No huge problem, however, you might need to take a look at
    that. I’m positive it’s costing you a few website visitors.
