I have two problems with my blog page.  The featured images do not show up at all.  Also, right underneath "Recent Posts", their appears a huge, obnoxious "NO" that I have been unable to trace (see screenshot).  I have re-created the blog page, unpublished the nearby article but cannot find it's source. Please assist, thanks.

On the "Content Area" tab of the theme options, you will find an option that allows you to enable post thumbnails.  You will also find an option to set a title for the main blog page, where you most likely entered the "No" that you are referring to.

Thank you so much. You nailed it on the No issue.  Any thoughts about what I can do to get images to show on my blog page?

I have revisited settings on this page a number of times and experimented with various settings with no change.  Basically, I want images on the blog page to show as they do in your demo.  Currently they show on the home page, but not wide like in the demo.  Do I have a image resolution problem?  I would really appreciate your thoughts.

It looks like your site is defaulting to using a 150x150 image size.  You should be able to select a different sized image when you are setting the featured image in the post editor.  You can also change the default image sizes under "Settings -> Media" in WP admin.

thanks for your thoughts, i have attached a screen shot of Settings>Media as I have looked there as well.  I don't see any editable solutions within the Post itself.  I you have any further thoughts.   I would really appreciate it.  See attached.

I believe when you change the sizes in the settings, you actually have to remove the images from the media library & re-upload them in order to force it to remove the incorrect sizes.  I also found a some information that suggested changing all the size settings to "0" in order to disable resizing completely, which would force it to use the full-sized image for the thumbnail.
