Apologies to Gold/Platinum Members!

I need to apologize for being late on the Gold Q&A this month.  I've been in Italy the past two weeks giving lectures for a tour group; I had hoped to be able to squeeze in a recording of the Q&A while there, but the trip had me running from dawn to dark. I've just arrived back stateside now and, as we speak, am in catch-up mode.  I have the Questions for the Q&A, and now just need to record Answers.  But given re-entry obligations, it probably will not be till next week (May Q&A in June!).  And about then we'll be soliciting new questions for June. So sorry 'bout this!  On the upside, at least with the blog, a day is not as a thousand years.... Bart

May Q&A

Dear Gold Members, These monthly Gold Q&A's have been a lot of fun to do.  Time for another one!  Have a question?  Ask it!  Anything related to the blog! To enter your question on to the list: send it to Diane at [email protected] DEADLINE for your question. Monday May 16, midnight (whenever midnight is where you live).   I will try to get it recorded a soon after that, with a goal of releasing it that following weekend. Questions that are relatively short (a sentence or two) are more likely to be chosen; and feel free to ask a zinger! I'm looking forward to it!   Bart

Gold Q&A (Slight Delay)

With apologies: I won't be able to have your Gold Q&A out by December 29, but I am highly sanguine that it will be before the end of the year!  Sorry!  I'm in London and spending a good deal of time and effort in playing dodgeball with Omicron.  So far so good; but it has created certain logistical problems with my life.  So, we may be a day or two late. I hope you all are having a mawvelous holiday season.  It's been great seeing family over here.  At least the vaccinated, boostered, and tested ones!

Two Gold Q&A’s for October!

Dear Gold Members, First, many apologies.  September got away from me; I was out of town for a third of it (lecturing for a UNC Alumni tour in northern Italy, suffering for the cause), and the rest of it just ate me alive.  So I missed the Gold Q&A. But never fear: I am going to make it up to you.  I'll be doing TWO this month. It will be the same as before, only double-duty this month.  Just to remind you, as if you need reminding: as a perk of your elite status as a gold member of the blog you are provided an audio Q&A once a month (well....) for Gold members only.   You provide written questions, I answer as many as I can, and I release the audio recording to Gold members only.  Have a question to ask?  The sky's the limit.  Go for it. I will be recording the first Q&A on  Sunday October 10, to be released Tuesday October 13.  Send your question(s) to our blog COO, Diane Pittman, at [...]

It’s Coming Soon

But we don't know when.... Many apologies.  Because of production problems (involving me, the producer) I have not been able to get the Gold Q&A uploaded for your listening pleasure.  It may yet be a couple of days.  I've recorded it -- there were some fantastic questions, including some I couldn't get to -- and even the recording was an adventure (my power cut out half way through....).  But, well, it'll be two or three days. Sorry 'bout that.  But no worries, with us mere mortals a day is as a day, not a thousand years, and it should be available in a couple of days.

Gold Members Only Audio Q&A

Dear Gold Members, As you know, one of your perks is a monthly audio version of a Q&A, designed and created just for you.  Only those with Gold privileges can participate and benefit..  You submit the Q's and I do the A's.  Interested?   Now we are set to do the first one. I will announce later the date on which it will be available, but first we have to make it!  For that to happen we need questions.   Want to submit one? Here are the rules.  You will be allowed to submit *one* question per month.  We will collect questions until Friday January 15.   Your question can relate to anything connected to the blog.  It should be relatively concise (not a page long) and an actual question, not a comment or disquisition on a topic you want the world to consider.   You should send you question NOT to me, and NOT as a comment on this post, but to my assistant, Diane Pittman <[email protected]>; she will collect and collate them, and we will decide which [...]
