Thanks Mark. I owe you a response to your earlier email and I've got some thoughts, but I didn't want to rush it by replying in haste.

My MLIS entrance essay is about censorship. Particularly a book burning in Canada. I plan to post it in a month or so.

Hi Gayla, that food podcast is amazing. I just listened to the episode on storytelling and it was wonderfull. Her voice is fantastic and I especially loved the sound effects. Thanks so much for sharing.

I'm so glad you are enjoying it. I am listening to the older episodes in between the newer ones, and one thing I realize is that the newer ones really bring her storytelling abilities to the forefront. I never thought a podcast episode about mussels would be something I'd listen to, but I found myself stopping my other activities and just standing and listening to it. I have a feeling it won't take me too long to get through all 50+ episodes.

That's great, I'm happy to hear that. It's different than Overdrive, but for me, that doesn't mean that it's "less" than Overdrive.

Was fun to read the in n out piece. I grew up in southern cali and it’s the one of the few things I can rely on staying the same and good!

In n Out definitely stays the same, no gimicks, the only things that changes are the prices. I live in Texas and I remember when the 1st In n Out showed up here, people were waiting over an hour in the drive thru line, my daughter being one of those people. Transplanted Californian's understood why people waiting in line. Those that had never had any before, couldn't understand why someone would wait that long for a burger. I kind of fall into the latter group. I enjoy one, but not enough to wait that long for one. lol

I enjoyed a burger occasionally when I lived out there, but I might get one twice a year back here. My daughter is a frequent patron of the In n Out close to her and she was one of the CA transplants that waiting in line over 2 hours the day the first one back here opened.
