Im trying to add a side bar to my site http://www.alvadesign.comon the left side of my screen like the one seen at this demo site . I have the bar appearing in the correct place now but its pushing the rest of my content below the sidebar!! I cant figure out what i need to change in the css. Ive been working on it with firebug with no luck so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a million,
