Like Tammy said, spell check. Heck, go one further and do a grammer check too. You can do this by dropping your text into Word or a similar progam and using the tools to fix things up.
The spinning disk up in the top left distracts from the text on the page which is where your main focus should be on. I'd keep animation to a minimum and only for mouse overs/clicks.
The colour scheme is good, as is the layout. Keep plugging away.
