    Thanks whizzy.
    After a couple of posts about my big header, I have decided to shrink it.
    It is now 250pixels high instead of 340px.
    I think I like it a little better now too.

    good decision, first time i got there, with every new page i had to scroll a little to be able to see the main content, now it is in plain view. :biggthump

    Nice design :).

    Some headers need to be a bit brighter tho ;)

    And make the email in the footer spammer safe if you don't want to get spammed ;)

    Is you the only owner of the site, or is it anybody else? Because if it's only you, wouldn't it be "contact me" instead of "contact us"?

    Too dark, i didn't get what's the main subject of your site, very long name. You should have more content at the home page

    Thanks vigge_sWe for the feedback...
    I will make the headers a lighter colour so they are more visible.
    And how do I make the mailto link in my bottom footer spam proof??? Any links to articles that show how to do this?
    And the reason it is Contact Us and not contact me is because I thought it should have more of a company sounding ring to it. Making it sound professional. Instead of an individual.
    (Im trying to start a small bussiness)
    I have hopes of expanding one day but maybe for now everything should be made personal and directed at me. eg. Contact Me

    And thanks arcade1 for your coments too.
    I must have a monitor that makes everything light.
    either that or i just like the dark shades of grey. I will attempt to change a couple of things to lighten the site up.
    And yessss I think i need to put a breif cover statement explaining what the site is about.
    Thanks for bringing that to my attention..

    Ah, I don't have a business of my own so I didn't think of it that way.

    With spamproof I mean like making it: mailaddress [ at ] domain [ dot ] com. This will lead that users will need to enter it manually, but spambots can't scan the email.

    I didnt want to change the look...

    and the changes are...
    -Smaller header, (was 340px, now 250px) so now more fits on the page and less of the page is taken up by the header.
    -Put a highlight on the home button when you are on home page.
    -Lightend the font colour of the page titles so they are clearer.
    -Lightend the font colour of the content font so it is easier to read.
    -Added a description to the home page for people who come accross my site and have no idea what it is about.
