I agree with you about twitter. Cool about your work at the group home. I also feel blue around these days...I was cleaning my office too...It's a good tradition to clean around this time. I really like it. I cleaned piles of papers we had...and dark corners of our kitchen. I have learned to leave my husband's offices alone...It is sooooo messy...but I leave him alone with that mess. It's his mess not mine! (He tolerates me for not loading the dishwasher right away, I don't like loading it right away...I do it when I want...So he tolerates me and I tolerate him.) Ya....60....definitely an epaulette on your sleeve. I like to listen to you from time to time. Yours is the only podcast I listen to somewhat regularly...I am a part time listener. You are funny when you say "fuck you!" Happy New Year gimpy knees...love you dude!

Hey Dude! Just wanted to let you know that you are a fabulous individual. Just listening to this last podcast and what you had to say about superficial "networking" and needing depth in our relationships is bang on. I think people have too many acquaintances and not enough companions. You made me very grateful for those in my life whom I cherish.

I am not a new listener, I've been listening since May (in particular, your Japan episodes made me teary eyed from time-to-time, I lived there for about a year and lived not too far from Yokohama!) and I just thought I would thank you for the depth as well as fun in your podcasts.

I'd hug you if I could!

Dude, trust me, you *always* deliver.

It's interesting hearing your thoughts about Twitter. I've been thinking about giving it a trial period myself, and the reason I hesitate is that although I can see *some* useful things it could do, I've got the distinct impression that 90% of it is blow-by-blow accounts of what others are up to, which doesn't thrill me much.

Imagine my surprise.

I was having lunch with Hugh McGuire and Julien Smith when you came up. I remembered you from Podcasters Across Borders and was upset because I had not listened to your Podcast yet.

I subscribed, started listening and then I'm hearing you mention my name... that's some weird stuff.

Anyhow, I'm a big time hugger, so feel free next time we connect in person.

I'm listening and subscribed now.

Thanks for sharing. I think we all appreciate it.
