IE 7, and 8 issues - weird spacing/overlapping

I've spent a few weeks on and off working on a site for my mom. Testing in IE 7 and 8 however, has ground any further development to a halt. I guess I'll start off by giving a link to the site (I've removed any real content / logos for now (but trust me, their removal had no effect on the issue). Please help.. I'd love to get this site up for my mom sometime soon.. preferably before Mother's day Wink
