Hello I have been working on getting this template to stretch for two days and everything I try doesn not work. So rather than going around the mountain again, I need to get a fresh set of eyes on this. If could look over the template and css that would be awesome. I need to get it to stretch vertically. I have enbeded the css in the template.
