everything loads fine with your site for me, the issues lies with 1) you internet service provider or 2) the server your site is hosted on might be inconsistant...
Ill look into it more later though

it might also be with my browser Safari cause when I finialy used the two Mozilla browsers Camino and Firefox it open with no downtime. in safari it kinda stops the loading or pauses at the http://greg.... part it just kinda freezes
i know its not my isp cause i get 6mbs download... and every other site i goto comes up in a blink of an eye.
I thought it might be my server cause it hosts like 5 other domains of mine or maybe it was my php on my server or the database part being slow.
but since i've trided it in camino and firefox i think its the safari browser :(
the only other browser ive seen my site on is IE and on windows and the thumbnails dont go in for rows down the page like they do in Firefox or camino or safari they just go acrossed the page. is there away to fix this?

i notice the slight pause too. but bare in mind you are talking about pauses in image loading.
this is not a pixelpost problem - reduce the size of images if you want everything to load faster.
it does seem however that your site is loading slower than it should. this is definetely a server thing. if you're paying good money then you have the right to ask for a server with less traffic where you won't have to share so much server work.
i also notice this problem in IE. I can only suggest that perhaps you use a stylesheet to set the width of your tables rather than width="", and perhaps even use the <div> tag instead!
