Dog From Florida Senator Bill Nelson's Office Makes Top 10 List

A little distraction from all the politicing, fighting and name-calling on Wahington, D.C. is this year's List of the Cutest Dogs on Capitol Hill. Maybe if all our legislative representatives had dogs in their offices, they could all get along and get things done.

New Website Design

Welcome to our newly redesigned web page.

So, why the new design? Our old page was very successful and garneed kudos from most who saw it. It served us well for many years.

But times have changed. According to Google there are now more searches on mobile than on desktop. That means that web sites need to provide an optimal viewing and interaction experience - easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling - across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).

While we tried a few adaptations with our old design last year that helped a little, the basic design just was not conducive to modern design requirements. So we decided to start over with a brand new, modern responsive design. Please look it over and let us know what you think.
