You've got a lot of great content

But I think you should clean up your presentation.  I recommend using the "jump link" in your posts to help with that.

You can use it to limit the post to some number of lines on the front page and then use the "jump link" button to insert the jump link tag <!-- more -->

The rest of this post is hidden by the jump link. Click "Read more >>" to see the rest
