Default Help! Cannot scroll to bottom of page

Well I'm a newbie and learning as I go along, and should be very grateful for some advice. On the club website that I designed, I have a page that looks fine on my PC (Google Chrome) but which users report has the bottom of the text cut off. So I looked at it with my laptop (Internet Explorer) and sure enough, the page is much shorter and the final few paragraphs of text do not show as the scroll bar is at the bottom, whereas in Google Chrome the final paragraph of writing is about two thirds of the way down with the scroll bar (does that make sense?!).
So I have lengthened the page, lengthened the master ... but still people cannot read the bottom paragraphs.
I really am baffled and would appreciate some advice -
take a look
www.47leggies.com/meetthemembers.html

The first column should finish with 'life begins at forty' but seems to stop at the Scuba Diving reference some lines above.

Very grateful for any advice and comments - plain English please. I'm only a newbie !!!

Many thanks all.

The pages look identical here in both Firefox and IE8.

However the columns of text have been converted to images. They may be overlapped by other objects or have you converted them yourself as you are using a font called "Rockwell"?

Use a web safe font like verdana, arial or even comic sans.

Thanks for your reply. I have re-set the font to Arial but it is still the same ...
I'm not sure what you mean by having converted it to images. I created two text boxes under the photos and filled them with the interview ... I am really baffled as to why, on my laptop, I cannot see the bottom few lines of the interview. I have checked, there is nothing overlapping, the bottom of the page is clear ...
Help, as I have to announce this page to members later today and, at the moment, it's just not right!!
Thanks for your help.

Looks fine in FireFox.

I can see right down to " I can honestly say that my life began at 40!" and " Roll on summer! Allez-y!"

thanks, but the members who told me they cannot see the bottom are using Internet Explorer - which I have on my laptop and I, too, cannot see the bottom of the page.
Any other ideas?

The text is now fine. Can scroll to bottom of page in both IE8 and Firefox.

In Firefox the page is longer but IE still shows the whole page.

Which version of IE are you using?

IE8 - I've uploaded the site again but still can't get the final few lines onto my laptop screen. Neither can my friends. Very odd.
Any other suggestions .... what am I doing wrong?
(*banging head against the wall in frustration * ) !

Can't see any reason for the, apparently, local difficulty you seem to be experiencing.

The page works fine here in Firefox, Chrome and IE8.

SOLVED!!! I uploaded the full site again, not just revisions to the page, and hey presto ... you can get to the bottom of the page.
I am still none the wiser as to what went wrong but I really, REALLY appreciate the prompt advice you gave me and shall certainly come again to this forum to get some (much-needed) help. I just hope you don't mind a not-so-competent newbie hanging on your coat-tails and asking questions as I have learned WebPlus as I have been going along.
So thanks again, good people!

That's how we all were once.
