Why the desire to "mimic" another site?

You really should try to make your site standout on its own.  You need to differentiate your site from the competition.

I am not a website developer.  I was trying to clarify the issues for others since the question had sat for several hours without comments.

Well, I am sorry for the delay in response.  I took the advice of Prodigy.  I purchase a template for my website.  Unfortunately, it is corrupt however, I am very happy with it.  I am waiting on themeforest to respond to refund or fix the files.  Thanks Savant and Prodigy. I really want to work on it "by myself."  So that I can get experience.  So, look for me in other questions.
