I'm personally never a fan of a site, that auto starts music, or video.

At least the pause button is visible. On some sites that auto-start music you have no choice but to mute you speaker or leave the site.

One other thing: It's usually a bad idea to put your email address on your web site because it will soon get harvested by spam bots. Yes, Yahoo has a pretty good spam filter, but it's better to not get it started. On my web site, I have a contact form to avoid exposing my email address.

I noticed that your email address can be found on at least three sites.

Very nice site. Just guessing here, but I would say it's not the first website you have designed. If it is, then you should be doing it for a living.

It appears that Greg has also designed this site, apparently for his wife's small business. Right Greg?

WOW!!! Thank you for all of the great comments...

Based on the feedback, I have made a couple of small changes. First, I turned off the auto play on the music (cuz now that you mention it, that stuff bugs me too!!!). Second, I removed the email address and added a "Contac Us" form instead. I also did this on the small business website...

As far as the web design, I'm just using a free template from http://www.yola.com - so, thank you for the compliments, but it's really just me taking a template and customizing it with photos and content...Anyway, what I will do (and have done for the mowing business website), is register a ".info" web address with GoDaddy for like $1 for the first year. Then, I forward the web address to the Yola site, which like I said, is a free template as well as free web hosting...

For example, I plan on registering "www.lyonslights.info", or something like that. When you type that in, you will get forwarded to "lyonschristmas.yolasite.com". I will forward with masking, so in the address bar it will still read "www.lyonslights.info. If you go visit http://www.lawnandorder.info, you will see how this works - you will actually be visiting lawnandorder.yolasite.com.

If you've been thinking about a website, I recommend Yola as it's easy to use and it's FREE (and no, I don't work for or have any affiliation with Yola.com ;) )

Thanks again for the comments!!!!

Greg

Looks good! I too am in the process of a new website and due to the feedback you received, I removed my email from mine and used a contact form as well. I also like the option to play or stop the music on your page. I personally turned it on while looking around the site. Keep up the good work.
