  1. Go Nic!!! I would love to vote but for some reason the website is such a dud. When I click on your link I get a lovely menu, spacey background but no button to click on. I am on Windoze 7 and have tried both Firefox and Chrome browsers. Same result in both. Any help is appreciated.

  2. Hi Roy, thanks! Do you see a picture of me on the page.. there should be a picture with a vote button on the left hand side...
