GLITCHES: We still have not resolved the server compatibility issues with this site. We have restored the top navigation bar. There are four main issues not yet resolved: The ‘search', ‘feedback', ‘testimonials' and ‘recipes' interactive facilities don't work yet – send us an e-mail in the meantime, if you wish to make contact! THANKS!

The dilemma: If we upload with ‘FrontPage extensions', the interactive features will return but we shall lose the navigation buttons – we're still pondering this one ……… Sorry for the glitches! May be we shall sort it with a software upgrade in the near future.
