I agree about the nice wood grain style.   I can't find anything specific 
wrong but I did observe that the site as a whole has very thinly distributed 
content.  You could have put the content on half the number of pages, but 
having got the exisiting pages indexed it would be wrong to reduce the 
number.    The only slight anomaly I could find was that this page has 
exactly the same title as the portable page.   With only 500 bytes varying 
from one page to the other out of 15000 bytes the pages are 97% identical to 
one another.   I suggest increasing substantially (like 3 - 4  times) the 
quantity of unique visible text content on each page so that it is worth 
switching pages to see something interesting.  The thumbnail pictures should 
expand into new pages (with only one link back) which have full text 
explanation alongside the enlarged image.  This has the making of a good 
Best regards, Eric.
