Perhaps for the time being, you can use the no-cache meta tag on your
header.html, so you will get the correct gif for each page. [Only a
suggestion.. :-) ]

Yeah.

None of us were thrilled about the mouse trails, either.  This guy wanted
"Flash" (not the technology -- Flash as in "glitter, hit me on the head, get
my attention".  We kept adding things to it, trying to make it flashy, while
staying within bounds we considered appropriate.  Finally he gave us a site
with mouse trails and told us specifically that's what he wanted.

Grrr....

Customer wants, customer gets.

You'll notice, also, the animated gif on the top.  This was a feature I
wished we could have improved.  Certain pages load different gifs, but the
BACK button doesn't automatically change it back.  That developer is now
gone.

Excellent job Vania. One thing about the 'Golfer's Special' page. Mouse
trailers tend to annoy surfers, thus, they are opted to leaving the site
because of that fact alone. Otherwise an excellent site.

You also asked about search engines.... Here is an excellent site:

This is a site we put up just days after I first started working here.  I
would very much like your input!

How do we also ask for critiques about search engine, etc?
