I hope to get the third and final installment of the Laura Duke interview completed this weekend.  Thanks for the comments so far!  It's great to hear from listeners!

Don't forget, the deadline for the free allergyware.com tee shirt is tomorrow.  Choose from any of my forty allergy designs for your prize!

Tomorrow night I am testing for my orange belt in Tae Kwon Do–wish me luck, and if the podcast is late, it's because I've been karate chopping every night instead of podcasting!  🙂
