Did you design your current website with Expression 3?

Either way, very nice site.....clean, simple and easy to navigate. Hope your business is doing well Mark.

Thanks for the Expression 3 tip....I'm looking into it.

Do you utilize the free webhosting service that WP offers, or are you using a separate web host?

It might be a nice hobby or pasttime or waste of time developing your own website but - what business are you in???
Paul -

Really nice and unique website you have!! Did you design it? If so, what program did you use?

** Agreed. It's not that I don't want to do it....it's just the time vs. money thingy...and doing video, photography, music design is time consuming enough!! (along with reading these forums...but I consider this a fun educational time!!)
