    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your article 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 fixed soon. Cheers

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that
    “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a superb job with this. In addition, the blog loads
    super quick for me on Safari. Superb Blog!
