Thanks for the reply and the thoughts.  Have a great holiday season.

I did have to get rid of the z-index stuff in the main css.  But had to  
add in the menu css as follows:

#primary-nav ul,
#primary-nav li:hover ul,
#primary-nav li:hover ul ul,
#primary-nav li.menuparenth ul,
#primary-nav li.menuparenth ul ul {

#primary-nav li:hover ul,
#primary-nav ul li:hover ul,
#primary-nav ul ul li:hover ul,
#primary-nav li.menuparenth ul,
#primary-nav ul li.menuparenth ul,
#primary-nav ul ul li.menuparenth ul {
