  1. Dear Dave and Caroline-
    Peter and I are still listening and I’ve been wanting to let you know as much …since last we wrote much has changed. We moved from Ghana to Southern US and now raise goats, garden, and respectively geek out while serenaded by your cheery voices and tunes 🙂 I had to laugh at the “579” jokes on this episode and I appreciated it. Before even listening my brain was enjoying the numeric pleasure of my own nearing 40th – day 5 of the 10th month of 1979 🙂
    Belated greetings to you Caroline, and thanks for continuing to make our lives a bit sweeter …we hope to record a goat-enhanced bumper for you soon!

      Hi Anna,

      Thanks for letting us know you’re still listening, and for updating us on your circumstances. We look forward to a goat-themed bumper that we can play on the show!

      Dave 🙂
