NOTE FROM HANK:

Sorry for the delay in releasing an episode. I've been sidetracked the last several weeks by a very serious health matter in the family. It's taken every ounce of my time and energy and unfortunately the podcast has suffered because of it, among other things. It won't be long before we're back to a more regular release schedule. Thank you for not downloading any of those other podcasts. Love you all.
