THANKS

This week I had fun with a  Romper Room magic mirror and tried to thank all those who have left a comment recently.  I really appreciate it and it really does keep the podcast going. 

I also enjoyed putting the cluster map on the site and seeing where people are visiting form.  I love having one listener in Trinidad, for example.
