  • Nancy Nangeroni  - No way!
    Thanks for asking - we're not giving up! We've been dealing with some challenging health issues that have consumed our summer, but we've got a new program almost ready for release and hope to resume taping more shows soon. Sorry for the absence, we're pedaling as fast as we can!
  • caroline  - Have you closed down broadcasting?
    Seems an age since last broadcast. Have you given up just as you were getting the hang of TV?
  • caroline  - Sorry to hear...
    Sorry to hear that you have had health problems, life can be a pain. Shall be here when you return. Why not pop up a note to let folk know what is up, the silence is a bit spooky?
