We again apologize for the lengthy space between podcasts. We are dealing with conflicting schedules, medical issues, and family obligations. Just like everyone, we are subject to the demands of everyday living. But we hope to get back into a rhythm of recording and posting as health improves and schedules become at least somewhat more manageable.
