You can use the Facebook Linter tool to "reset" what FB knows about
the page. It basically clears FB's cache of the page.

I put your page in here and tested and I now get an image to show up
when I share the link. I used this URL (with trailing slash):


Also, your og:image is commented out. You can use this to control
which image it uses.

<!--<meta property="og:image" content="http://www.myimage.jpg"/>-->
