Welcome to Grand Rounds for February 9th. How are you? Sitting here, finalizing the posts, I am stricken by my utter inability to say anything nearly as entertaining as Dr. Rob did last week. I mean, I don’t have a single llama picture to offer you! I’m very disappointed in myself.So, I’ll try to intro this Grand Rounds with a reminder. Let’s set the stage. This morning, as I write this, my two cats are staring out the window at song-birds; happy not to be out in the frosty grass like their dog friends, but deep in their cat souls wondering ‘why am I here, what’s it all about?’ Later, of course, they’ll forget and bite each other, walk on the stove, cough up fur-balls and sleep blissfully. But somewhere beneath the fur and collars, their tame nature will still wish for something to stalk……….
Howdy all! I'm just back from a major cross-country road trip in the land of Dead Man's Wash and Bloody Basin. Only slightly saddle, or seat-sore from all the switchbacks, so I'm recuperating from beautiful but dusty environs, cactus pollen and the quirks of roadside hotel beds.Sit on down at the bar, have a beverage of your choice, and enjoy the official, genuine authentic February 4, 2010 edition of change of shift.

Recently a fledgling quilting podcaster was asking about how to create music files for her podcast, and I took the time to do some screen shots and sent them to her.I realized in the process of writing the e-mail that this could be a helpful blog post to dispel some of the confusion in using music in a future quilting podcast (if that’s what’s stopping you from doing a podcast). Okay it’s not all that confusing, but if you’ve never done it before, this could be a good way to start.This is the way I have done the music portion of my podcast. This tutorial uses Mevio’s Music Alley and Audacity because that’s what I use. Both are free to use, and be sure to read the guidlines they have for each site – particularly Mevio’s Music Alley…….
