Podcast from FAR Manor (#3) - news, iPhone speculation, early holiday memories

I battled an almost-flu kind of cold, chicken house duty, light-hanging duty, and a house full of indifferent people, to get this podcast put together. I hope you think it was worth it!

14:00 - Stories of early holiday memories
30:40 - Closing comments, thanks
31:20 - "Rockin' Jerusalem" sung by the DCHS Chamber Singers

Special thanks to those who shared their holiday memories with us all:

Thanks also to Family Man and Olivia for their kind words about last month’s podcast.

  1. Is that you singing FAR! I love it!

    And your voice doesn't sound like you have a cold ... :)

    Oh, and thanks for the shout out ... how sweet ... :D

  2. That was wonderful! Great job FAR ... and to all the special guests who shared their memories. Thank you!

  3. You did another great job FARfetched. Thanks for the shout out.

  4. Hey guys!

    Yup, O, that was me singing. A couple of lines came to me last year; I filled it in over the last few weeks & snitched a MIDI file off the web. Then I mixed the song last weekend, before the cold caught up to me.

    Oh, and I was feeling the cold even if I wasn't sounding it. Lots of water and cough drops saved the day. Amazingly enough, I started feeling better around 4 p.m. today, and shucked the sweater a bit over an hour ago.

    The shout-outs are thanking you guys for the encouragement — I just hope it nets you a few more readers! I about have the rhythm established now... I think I can handle doing this once a month. It figures that I've got ideas lined up for February & March, but still thinking about January... guess I'll trust the Muse to send inspiration.

    FM: good to hear from you; I haven't seen you around for a few days & was staring to worry. Hope you're just getting some holiday slacking done & letting the rest of the family have all the "fun."

  5. Thanks for hosting my story! It was fun podcasting. This just might become a new obsession for me :).


Comments are welcome, and they don't have to be complimentary. I delete spam on sight, but that's pretty much it for moderation. Long off-topic rants or unconstructive flamage are also candidates for deletion but I haven’t seen any of that so far.

I have comment moderation on for posts over a week old, but that’s so I’ll see them.
