HELP! I'm in the process of re-organizing the site, and more specifically the Categories and their Navigation.  But it's not working.  I'm trying to post the results on the Skating Diva Category, but it's not showing up there.  Any ideas?

Has anyone ever had Radio hang up your system and make the CPU go nuts? Mine's taking a hell of a lot of resources. (FYI I'm on Win98 on the notebook)

Also A couple of you have asked about the large type-- I wear bifocals-- actually TRI focals -- Nuff said.

I am still looking for a webdesign guru who will help me redesign this site to actually be fully functional and get the graphics so they don't appear like a ransom note. I had someone email me a couple weeks ago-- but I will be damned if I can find the note.  HIT THE YELLOW ENVELOPE IN THE LEFT COLUMN AND EMAIL ME IF YOU NEED A SMALL PROJECT!
