Unless you want to give a URL (by post or PM) stick a fork in me 'cuz I'm done.

I can't help fix what I can't see...
If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

You should be able to add it with this:
body {background: url(images/skywithclouds.jpg) no-repeat 50% 50%;}

No quotes are needed. Note however that unless the closing body tag is 'cleared' like so:
<div class="clear"></div>
</body>
The image will not display.

Anyone really wanting help on this should give their URL.

It's almost impossible to help with this without a URL.
If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

Add

.clear {
clear: both;
}

to your stylesheet.
REMEMBER BACKUP, BACKUP AND BACKUP

Don't take life too seriously. no one gets out alive anyway
