    Looks good visually. As longs as the comment goes to my email address for an approval before going live? Also, will need to delete these comments I am making here. If these things are addressed we may be able to move this to prod. ALSO what does the “Subscribe” button do. Seems confusing with our other “Subscribe” on the left side of the page.
