comes first, so...

And I am delighted to report that I had a wonderful conversation with a lovely English and Dutch speaking young woman by the name of "Herrad". She's now working on putting together a podcast and getting her voice out there.

Its ironic but I suspect that the French and the Germans, whom I wanted to give a little "conversation sclerosée"or a little MS "stammtish" to, are being quite tardy and arriving late to the party.

Its now a matter of who will upload first?

Will it be "Homer[title] with his msb-gr-0001 [Title]?

Or will it be Herrad with her msb-nl-0001 [Title]?

No! Its not a race, or a contest.

Its just the facts.

I wish them success, long life, and as much health as we can squeeze out of our nervous system.

Feed forward comes next, so...

My wife's friend "Jana" just got officially diagnosed with MS. (What the odds [I know, I know, one in twelve-hundred] that my wife would know two people, two total strangers, from two entirely different locations, and both living with MS?)

She already had quite a struggle with other ailments so she was just figuring that her "tossing three or four spoons into the sink after dropping them," and other tremors, dead-skin patches and the like (a litany of which is quite familiar to us all,) was due to the other ailments and medications she was on.

Sadly, she just got hit by a bus with the license plate M.S. (as if she didn't have enough shi... , uh, stuff, in her life.)

Its really too bad because she really deserves better things in her life.

She's a great person who's raised great kids, has a odd menagerie of critters she cares for and keeps squirrels as pets. (You just have to see them. :-)

She's such a live wire, I'm sure she'll turn up on this show. (I'm just sorry to give her the opportunity.)

Feed Me! come third, so...

Do you have a therapy, product, good or service that is of interest to MSers?

Consider advertising on this podcast.

Reminders on this segment only cost $0.03 per reminder per download of an episode. (A $30CPM targeted at MSers.)

It can/should lead to a full ad, in text, audio or video, which costs $3.00 per download.

That sounds expensive until you do the math and realize that if nobody downloads it it costs you nothing, unlike print, where you often can't even get an ad in to the specialized journals, or radio or TV where you'd just be wasting your money with the 0.0833% MSers rate of return. (That's about six times "below" the level of "statistical noise".)

But MSBPodcast is 100% in your market, and you only pay per download of your material.

No play, no pay.

Reach the MSers who would buy your therapy, product, good or service, with-out having to waste your advertising money on anyone who is "not" interested...

Sleutels Portemonee en Shag - Dutch lyrics " by: "Dr Flexatone"

Main Topic: Double Dutch.

Double Dutch is actually an English expression which I first heard on Flanders and Swann's "At The Drop Of A Hat", lo many years ago.

Aw, screw it. I'm really bummed out about Jana. I'm just going to play the music.

he Heats To Blame" by: "Casey Desmond"

Main topic, part "deux":

I'm still bummed out.

But she's a real live wire.

I'm ashamed to even think this but maybe she'd be interested in doing this podcast with me.

It'd certainly change the dynamics.

I've got a face that's perfect for radio and not much voice left. She sounds lively and her pictures, and those of her squirrels, actually mean that she could take over this podcast.
