  1. Hello! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you
    know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing
    from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able
    to resolve this issue. If you have any suggestions, please
    share. Cheers!
