Happy New Year!

The new year brings back our very first episode. Nancy is off for a few weeks, attending to her own writing. Here is our very first episode, with something added. A word from our sponsor. Sarah Swanson at The Bryant Corner Cafe is the person who has made us a space here at the cafe.  So, we find out a little bit about why that is, and also, we taste their homemade hollandaise sauce
