This may be a really stupid question. Could someone please check out my website www.singingheart.yolasite.com. It seems to take forever to open certain pages. Are my pics too big? Do I have too much on one page? (I just received a complaint from someone who wanted to look)

Thanks so much for any help!

I took a look at your site and yes the necklaces page took forever to open. I am running great internet at the moment so thats not it. One of your pictures was 22KB which is a great size.

Deborah,

At the time you reported this the internet in certain parts of the world was on a go slow.

All your pages load fine for me... the pages with paypal take a second or two longer - but thats normal.
