Re: A Sad Loss

Deepest sympathies. One never knows what is round the corner. One of my best friends died about 3 weeks ago. We did a lot of climbing and sailing together. He was 56 and only 6 months younger than me. We had dinner together just before Xmas and made lots of climbing and sailing plans for this year, ...

Re: Sail Argyll

Nick, sweetheart, resisting the urge to respond in a similarly ascerbic tone, the issue seems to be that you have a fixed width assigned to your listingbar css element of 488px whilst the CSS tag you are using for the detail (linktext) has no fixed width assigned.
