Larry, I just checked out your site.

This is awesome.

Would you be open to sharing your AHAH code?

This is the *only* thing I have to nitpick about.  You really should be
displaying everything you have microformatted (and microformatting
everything you can that's displayed).  If you need to create a separate page
like "contact info" rather than showing all the content on your home page,
that I can understand.  But however you do it, the information should be
human visible/readable on the page.
