Personally, I don't see the point of the home page. It tells the user
almost nothing. When I go to a site the first question in my mind is
"what is this site about?" and that question is totally impossible to
answer based on that home page.

Also, try turning off images and stylesheets to see what Google sees. Is
that what you want visitors to see in the Google listings? If you want
"google juice" I think you're going to need some actual *content* (as
opposed to just words) on that page.
