Helping Puerto Rico As many of you know, Puerto Rico has been devastated by the latest slew of hurricanes, leaving the island without power and making it very difficult to contact loved ones. Here in New Hope I know several families affected by this disaster - so from now until Sunday night *half of anything bought from CraftLit will go to a disaster relief fund for Puerto Rico.* See the link below for details.  https://craftlit.com/help Www.prfaa.pr.gov/unitedforpuertorico Book Notes (12:16) It's no surprise that the end of the book is rapidly approaching. Once the book is a wrap Heather wants to hear your thoughts on the longest book CraftLit has tackled.

Book Talk (8:51) Links Ch 106 [Asmodeus] [Le Sage] 107 [Racine] [Guilbert de Pixerecourt]and the [Wiki] | Mapcon 2017 | I spent last weekend at the Mid-Atlantic Podcast Conference and had the pleasure of meeting a hotel full of wonderful podcasters. Recording from home can be isolating at times, so it feels great to go out into the wild and meet up with fellow casters to talk about improving our shows and the impact we have on listeners. I've listed a handful of podcasts I encountered at the conference (which I go into more detail about in the episode). Be brave! Find something new to listen to. TinyPotters.com  --For kids who are Harry Potter Lovers (or soon-to-be HPLs)--going chapter by chapter through the books. Started Sept 1st. RedRoadRadio.com --Native American stories (hosts grandmother, 92?) is at the Standing Rock Res. ! And was out at the protests. TherapyChatPodcast.com --pretty much as you’d expect PublicInterestPodcast.com --host interviews politicians on both sides about the GOOD things they are doing. WhiskeyCast.com --exactly what you think, hosted by Mark Gillespie. One of the longest running, certainly one of the longest profitable, podcasts out there (out of southern NJ, too!) Fan Theory Podcast --iTunes etc, Facebook.com/fantheorypodcast “everyone’s a fan of something” FishNerds.com --always interesting, usually funny, mostly true GreatBeerAdventure.com --discover awesome and unique craft beers with Amanda PodcastJunkies.com --my table mate and King of All Media, Harry Duran, hosts this interview show. DirtyWaterDude.com —Host and water expert Stefan Roots has the loveliest voice conveying some Really Dirty Info PopCollectorsPodcast.com —if you have a Funko Pop Collector or just Funko Fans in the house, they now have a podcast to listen to—all for them! Thank you, Teresa! FuseboxRadio.com / BlackRadioIsBack.com — Host Mary Nichols is one of my new fave people. Listen most easily here: http://fuseboxradio.podomatic.com   Let's Communicate!

But in vain did he rack his imagination; fertile as it was, he could not devise any plan for reaching the island without companionship. Dantes was tossed about on these doubts and wishes, when the patron, who had great confidence in him, and was very desirous of retaining him in his service, took him by the arm one evening and led him to a tavern on the Via del' Oglio, where the leading smugglers of Leghorn used to congregate and discuss affairs connected with their trade. Already Dantes had visited this maritime Bourse two or three times, and seeing all these hardy free-traders, who supplied the whole coast for nearly two hundred leagues in extent, he had asked himself what power might not that man attain who should give the impulse of his will to all these contrary and diverging minds. This time it was a great matter that was under discussion, connected with a vessel laden with Turkey carpets, stuffs of the Levant, and cashmeres. It was necessary to find some neutral ground on which an exchange could be made, and then to try and land these goods on the coast of France. If the venture was successful the profit would be enormous, there would be a gain of fifty or sixty piastres each for the crew. Let's Communicate!

The evil meat allergy ticks InsectShield clothing ZapIt! Permethrin Only for clothing - NOT TO BE PUT ON SKIN 20%Picaridin or a big ol tank of Picaridin Bulk instructions for a less wasteful Picaridin spray use: Question: Is it possible to buy a refill for the spray bottle? I do not want to throw the pump in the trash for each bottle I order. Great product Answer: If your going to use multiple bottles of permethrine...this is what i did. I bought a bottle of permethrine 36.8%, sometimes called "permethrine SFR". Then I got a one gallon lawn and garden sprayer. The are about $10 dollars . The just dilute the permethrine to the .5% strength like the sawyer's is. That is half of one percent. Dilute as follows. 1 gallon of water gets 2 ounces of 36.8% permethrine to give you .5% . Sooo much cheaper this way. And your right why buy and throw out all those plastic bottles, Permethrine SFR is available on Amazon. The bottle have a ounce measuring thing built in. Make gallons of the stuff for so little money...Or of course you could buy the 10% permethrine and just dilute that to .5% to make a little less. Or dilute the SFR to 1%...that lasts longer on clothes. Just use 4 ounces of SFR in one gallon (my preference) I treat everything I wear from the waist down, socks and shoes, pants shorts. My wife's clothes too.

437: Chapter 51 - Count of Monte Cristo

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 20:00:00 +0000

That Time Again Count of Monte Cristo Chapter 51  [Book Talk @ 2:05] Links for you! Pyramus & Thisbe My new fave line (forgot to mention this: "Man proposes. Money disposes." Corollary: "Man Plans. God Laughs." France and Algeria (Oh, Charles X, you pesky problem child) "The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers," Shakespeare, Henry VI, part 2, Act IV, scene ii.  And check out the growing list of fun things to get from the CraftLit gift shop (or the PodShop): Frosty Mug of CraftLit by CraftLit   I shamefacedly admit that Justin had to put this puppy together for me again. The editing software ground to a halt and nearly took the recording with it. So. While we await the prognosis of my sad, sad machine, it is once again Audio Editing Solutions for the win! Justin, my hero! And Speaking of Heroes: Thank you to our new Patrons: Juliette & Donna! Yay You!!!

If you talk nerd like me: Turns out the Solid State hard drive started to die, took out the fusion drive with it and then, in an epic domino maneuver, took out my graphics card. That's why by Thursday the only way I could manipulate the computer (like, to turn it off) was to use the assistive keystrokes for the blind. THAT was a first. The Genius Bar was stunned to respectful silence. So. This is the last week I'm tormenting Justin, my seriously-fun-to-work-with editor at Audio Editing Solutions for taking blobs of audio and make them make sense. That Justin. WhattaMensch!

Epic computer meltdown right after recording. I'm actually typing these notes on my phone. No idea when I'll have a working machine again (or at least a machine I can trust to keep working). Not exactly in the holiday budget... So. All credit to Justin, my awesome editor at Audio Editing Solutions for sweeping in and making an episode out of the big wad of audio. All hail Justin! And on that note, I go back to the tech support call that's had me on hold...today.
