Thanks, everyone, for taking the time to let me know what you're seeing. My heartbeat is back to normal.(<8

On the site's Home page I already had put some instructions to AOL users as to how to uncheck graphics compression to properly view the site. Hope this will take care of that problem.

Again, thanks everyone!
