Hey, thanks for the comments.. And I have noticed those issues, its been a whole day of trying to fix them. Basically switched to a new wordpress theme and am still trying to adjust it to fit together. Hopefully by tomorrow its running good again.
Some of the menus are too long, which prevents one from getting to the bottom sections of the menus. Also, some of the pages aren't loading completely, such as the California Festivals page, which prevents one from liking or commenting. Nonethelesss, thanks for letting me camp out in your blog for a little while today. I had a great time and tried to leave my campsite as good as when I arrived. I’ll be back!
