Thanks for the suggestions.  In terms of the logo.  Right now the issue is that the only graphic
we have is on a solid white background.  It's not transparent at all.  I want to work on getting
the source art for that so that we can do with it what we like.  In my opinion, it looked
very boring, with black / blue text on a really light background.  My actual hope is to get
the source art for the logo, (or make a new one) and have it inverted so that it is also white.
 At that point I would make the background a gradient blue.

As for the typos, I will fix those.

As for the navigation, I will try it on the left.

 There is more work to be done (lots) but I think this looks a little nicer than what I had
done before.
