    Hello, I do think your web site could possibly be having browser compatibility problems.
    When I look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, if
    opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Besides that, excellent blog!
