Episode Nine - Valentine's Day

Being single, and as a founding member of the International (Virtual) Loney Hearts Club, I'm posting a PodCast that demonstrates my feelings about this crummy day. :-(

The poem is Symmetrical Companion by May Swenson.

Episode Eight - Winter City

In this episode I visit Toronto's Winter City Festival. There was a giant snow globe with real people in it; a large painted ice sculpture called "Paintings Below Zero" by Gordon Halloran that represents the effect of global warming on the polar ice caps; and an interesting presentation by an Italian theatre company, Kitonb, entitled "Carillon - The Flight of Time".

Bad PodCaster!

Yes, I’m still alive.

No, I haven’t given up on my PodCast.

Life has been crazy (especially work), so I haven’t had the time.

With luck, I’ll have a new post in November. Please stand by…

Episode Six - Pat's Condo

In this episode, Pat from Cooking Kitty Corner shows us his new condo. I had Pat’s parents in mind while I was editing (they won’t get a chance to see it in person for a while). Gee, I’m either a nice guy or this is a thinly veiled ploy to increase my viewership by a couple of people! ;-) (24.9Mb – 5m14s)

Episode Five - The Gardening Episode

I hope you're in the mood for a quickie because this is my shortest episode EVER! :D

In this episode, the petunias that my Mother planted for me have all died, so I spent part of Canada Day weekend replanting a small flower bed in my front yard. (19.0Mb - 3m30s)

Update: They were Pansies - not Petunias. D'oh!
