Well it has nothing to do with the latest snow fall (over 3 inches in Dallas-Ft. Worth on top of compacted ice, God but watching the news is humorous this morning) but there will be no show today. As anyone who has been listening the past few weeks would know my voice has been really strained with this cold/flu/whatever that I have been dealing with. Something ramped it up over the last two days and with all the coughing my throat is simply to raw to produce a show today.
I have actually been coughing to the point where my head and back hurts. No sympathy is desired or sought, I just want everyone to know I take canceling a show to be a serious matter and really hate doing it, I am also a realist though and know I would be so bad today that no one would really be able to tolerate listening and it will only do more harm to my vocal cords. I don’t really feel that bad so I am going to dedicate today to doing a lot of organizational things and some future show research.
Again I apologize for canceling today’s show but it is simply one of those times where I don’t really have a choice. Yesterday’s show is a good example if you listen to the introduction you will hear how bad I was getting. It took me 15 minutes with stops and pauses to do the 5 introduction. The interview with Clayton was prerecorded five days earlier. If you listen to the intro and then to the actual interview the difference is quite dramatic.
Some good news, Monday I will be back of course and Monday afternoon I will be interviewing Sam Benowitz who is the owner of Raintree Nursery. Raintree is my source for many of the lesser known perennials that I discuss on many of permaculture style shows. Stuff like edible dogwood, blue honeysuckle, aronia, goumi, sea buckthorn and more. Sam’s interview should air on Tuesday next week, we will be talking about integrating some of these lesser known plants into your homesteading and how to use and care for them.
So until next week I will sign off, again I don’t really feel bad I just don’t have much of a voice today. Be well all, and try to stay warm out there and safe if you have to go on the roads.
Tech support for the site and MSB will not be effected during this time except Sunday afternoon and with that thought GO STEELERS!
