A new look for FOBs Donna Ardizzoni & Rick Moore

You know Donna Ardizzoni from her GMG posts, beautiful photos, One Hour At A Time Gang and, most importantly, her indomitable enthusiasm!

What you may not know is what she, and her husband, Rick Moore, do for their day jobs.  Check out their brand new website (built by yours truly) and you’ll find out.  This is another one of our websites that uses responsive design, which means that it automatically adjusts its design to the device you’re using.  More and more people access the Web from their phones and tablets.  That’s why nearly all the new websites we build use responsive design techniques that allow you to show different things on different devices using the same exact content and code.  Here’s how the new site looks on a computer:


Below you’ll see two images that show how it looks on an iPhone held portrait (the way you hold it when you’re using it as a phone — that is, to talk).  Notice how the menu system is completely different on the iPhone.   When you tap the menu icon (the 3 horizontal lines on the right above Rick’s picture in the image on the left) the menu drops down automatically as you can see in the image on the right.  This menu and the horizontal menu, that you see in the image above, both use the exact same HTML code and content.


CircleiPhoneMenuCircleGalaxyJust in case you were wondering, it looks even better on my Samsung Galaxy SIII than it does on the iPhone.  See that to the right.

It looks great on an iPad too.  And when you rotate your device from portrait to landscape, the design changes with you, to accommodate the new aspect ratio.

Now for the good part.  If you ever need any help with your computers, networks, backups, virus scanners, or medical billing and accounting you really should call Rick and Donna.  They truly are the best at what they do!

Here’s a quick example.  Before we knew Donna & Rick, we had someone upgrade our network.  We were down for a day and it took all night — literally.  Vickie didn’t sleep a wink.  I finally went to bed in frustration.  But Vickie is our network administrator, so she stayed up to see it through.  Since then, Rick has upgraded our network twice and each time we weren’t even down long enough for me to go take a pee.  Oh, and did I mention, everything just worked — instantly.  No problems.  No data lost.  Just faster … lots faster!

    Information technology (IT) a special gift -This takes lot’s work and this looks excellent! Technology your greatest friend and effort and action WOW- full night and of reading commands and code only to find that period or extra space through it all off ! Well done – then head out to shore and watch the sun set :-)

  4. I agree with you more Joey. Donna’s zest for life motivates everyone she meets!

    It’s no secret that computers are not my thing. I will never be able to repay or thank Rick and Donna for all the help they gave to me and my “Sista Felicia Team” over the past 2 years. Without Rick and Donna my cookbook files would have never made it to book designer Cathy Kelley, creative director James Eves, or to the printer! Experts in their field of computers and customer service. They always provide quick solutions to all our computer questions and problems. Rick has programed, reprogramed, backed up systems, and trouble shouted countless times for us successfully. He was just at the house Thursday night fixing our slow wireless internet connection.. thanks to Rick, it’s super fast now! Highly recommend them… They are the best!

  6. Donna’s “indomitable enthusiasm”.

    Indomitable: adjective 1) impossible to subdue or defeat.

    Yup, pity the poor fool who tries to subdue or defeat Donna’s enthusiasm. Now where is that photo of Donna as Wonder Woman jumping into the harbor on New Year’s Day? :-)

    Nice job on the website.

  7. Thanks all and especially Peter and Vickie

  8. Ha…maybe the wonder women shot as your logo ~ ummm maybe not. Today, your friends have posted many fine qualities about you. It has been a pleasure to know you on line. However since I don’t know you in person, and after the Wonder Women posting, I would add bravery ~ showing your muscle ~ it’s a good thing! ;) This summer, I hope to shake your hand ~
