On this page in the right sidebar I load a UTC time from a 3rd party site. Sometimes the response times are slow from the 3rd party.  When this happens my page is waiting on the response before it loads the page.  Is there any way to continue loading the page?

Remove the src from the iframe
Give the iframe an id e.g. id="clock" - we could just use iframe to target but best to have an identifier

Add this jquery
$(function() {
$("#clock").attr("src","http://www.thetimenow.com/clock/utc/universal_coordinated_time?t=n&embed=1&text=10&textdate=15&format=24&digitalclock=36&analogclock=60&letter_spacing=-2&bordersize=0&bordercolor=BCE2F7&bgcolor=232323&colorloc=FFFFFF&colordigital=FFFFFF&colordate=FFFFFF&styleloc=normal&styledigital=normal&styledate=normal&right=0")
})
