Okay, I will cheer up. There are more serious problems in the world to worry about like stores putting out Christmas merchandise early.
We KNOW you are kidding about that!!!!!

I was watching that on the news this morning. So sad!!!!!!! And scary!!!!!

You do a wonderful job! I need to get caught up on the podcast.

I know exactly what you mean on the time it takes to make a short segment! That is, when I am doing videos.

Thank you! I really sweat the details on those, from the writing to the recording, editing, and mixing. I haven't had much of a chance to produce segments this year, because I haven't had the time to devote to doing it well, and I just won't give it less than my best. And I know that holds with making videos, too, because I'm working on this year's YuleTube when I can.
