  1. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads
    up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in
    Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something
    to do with web browser compatibility but I figured
    I’d post to let you know. The design look great though!
    Hope you get the issue solved soon. Kudos
