[SOLVED] New User, Background Color Doesn't Change

I'm new to Atahualpa, new to Wordpress, new to websites and blogging, and this is my 4th theme in 10 days - long story. So while the message is loud and clear that the Atahualpa developers want people to pay for support, I need to know the theme and the support are good first. Once that is established, sign me up! Meanwhile, I appreciate any help others can offer.

I'm using the WP Academy Atahualpa theme styling tutorials on YouTube to configure my site, they are extremely helpful but not everything is working on my end. I know things may differ from version to version (I have the latest 3.7.22), but the steps seem pretty straightforward for the changes I'm trying to make and should work regardless of the version.

The current, most immediate problem is that the background color doesn't change.
1. Theme options, Body, Text & Links
2. In Body Style section, change background: #FFFFFF to preferred color (#87A660).
3. I refresh the site, nothing changes, no background color.

Previous problem resolved, but not understood.
Last night I had a problem changing the header. I removed the stock images in my Header directory and replaced it with my own jpg (with no spaces in the title). When I refreshed the page (in both Chrome and Firefox), the header area was totally white, no image. I Reset Settings, repeated the steps, nothing. I spent an hour trying to get the header to appear and finally gave up. When I came into work this morning and checked, the header is suddenly there.

Same problem with the site title and tagline. Steps in the video showed to change the Header Image settings to OverLay Blog Title/Tagline over the Header Image. But when I refreshed, there was no title/tagline at all. None, disappeared. Today, they appear.

Any thoughts about why some changes don't work at all (background color) or don't appear until hours later (header, title/tagline) in multiple browsers?

I turned off maintenance mode so you can see the site as is (without the desired green background) at designsage.net.
