W3c validation, 3 problems I can't fix.

Hi, I'm working on www.magickitchen.com/responsive. I have fixed all the errors on the validation page except these three, and I think they're all connected. Can you tell me where the unclosed element is?

 Error Line 452, Column 59: End tag form seen, but there were open elements.

            <input id="submit" value="Sign Up" type="submit">      </form></p></blockquote>


Error Line 445, Column 46: Unclosed element blockquote.

…uote style="background-color:#fbeead;"><h4 style="text-align:center;">Join Our…


Error Line 452, Column 59: Cannot recover after last error. Any further errors will be ignored.

            <input id="submit" value="Sign Up" type="submit">      </form></p></blockquote>

You will see lots of RED starting at line 452 of the rendered HTML using Firefox "View Source". The RED indicates improperly nested tags or tags that do not belong. You have this on line 452: </form></p></blockquote>

But the block quote is actually inside the form tags so it should be:  </p></blockquote> </form>

hmm.. when I did that, all of a sudden I had 101 errors instead of 3, so I put it back.

There are multiple problems with the structure, i.e. improper nesting, orphaned tags, etc. Just correcting one problem will highlight the rest. Note that the validator has quit after finding the improper nesting of the form tag.
Cannot recover after last error. Any further errors will be ignored.
With that one problem fixed, the validator is pointing out the rest of the errors. It's not that you only had 3 errors. You HAVE closer to 101 errors. Fixing the few structural problems will likely cure 99% of them.

Never mind the validator for now. Use the "View Source" feature in Firefox to see the tags highlighted in red. They will clue you in on the structural problems. Fix all of those before going back to the validator.
