Would of given some more advice, but when I opened your home page it
resized and I absolutely hate sites that resize my browser (anyone
else wish they could grasp the webmaster of sites that do this and
squeeze tightly!!), so automatically closed it.

monitor, so you have your settings wrong as well!!
