There aren't any potatoes, the money is gone and the landlord has sent the coppers 'round to throw you out into the mud-paved streets. You don't know what the terms 'steerage' or 'Industrial Revolution' mean, but you will soon find out.

Last week was a a good show, more callers than usual and I was able to fill two listener requests.
Happy Tuesday!

On the downside, my cousin Dee has decided to turn what I had hoped was a brief visit into a prolonged stay. I don't know why Dee has chosen this particular time to settle in, but it doesn't really matter. That's the problem. With Dee around, nothing matters.

Dee monopolizes my time and leaves me with nothing to show for it...things fall apart when Dee is here and I can't do much about it until later. Which is soon, I hope.

After three days, visitors and fish begin to smell. Family visitors can go rank a bit early as they tend to be contaminated prior to arrival.
