Wordpress, how to add "blog" to our static theme

Hello,

This might be an easy question,

In our wordpress site we're using this theme:

http://www.wpchamp.com/theme-gallery/business-sense/

for our site:

nlpcahub(dot)com,

I have settings->reading set to "Your Latest Post" and the theme is making us have a static front page that is made up of two pages, a (1) left side and a (2) right side. Internal pages are standard with a sidebar.

The problem is, they want to add a blog to the menu -> where next to "Contact" it says "Blog". We've got some posts already but they're being used by our front page slideshow and we don't want them to show up in the blog. How do we create a blog that shows up in the menu as "Blog" and only displays what we want?

There's no menus set up in Appearance->Menus

I set one up but I don't see it anywhere in the site.

Are we hardcoded? If so, is there another way to add a blog?

I found some documentation. I have to re-setup the whole menu and select it as primary navigation. I think I've got it.

Except I can't figure out how to add the dropdown portion of each menu item

Got it. Now there's weird spacing and some little arrows. How do I get it like the old menu?

I fixed the CSS for that.

Now my top menu links go to blank pages. How do I get them to be not clickable?

Yep.  It's nice to see how you have progressed :)

Before you know it, you'll be writing your own theme.  Then, plugins.
