    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off
    the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue
    or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’dpost to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon.
