Before you recoil in horror at the not-quite-w3c-compliant html (working on that...) let me say that all errors in design, graphics, and coding are my (Mel's) fault. I'm learning webdesign as I put up this site, so please bear with me, and let me know if you have any suggestions how to make this better.
In particular, I know the images are grainy and don't resize correctly (the site is elastic) and the "development" page is quite empty; we'll be uploading lots more content as work progresses, since we're spending most of our time nowadays getting ready for the trip to Japan (to be explained in the next post).
But hey - welcome to our little corner of the web! We're glad you're here.
