I decided to cut the show back to one hour a day today and, of course, forgot to start the recorder going. On top of that, I forgot to start the YouTube stream!

I filled listeners in on our Saturday evening in the emergency room. Alison had a softball injury that turned out to be a sprained index finger. I erred on the side of caution, and will likely get some interesting programming out [...]
