Atta Boys/Girls, GJB! Fun to hear other listeners. Possible subject: media types; ie the 8 track, reel2reel, printing press. Do you get your intro from the Thesaurus or just start rhyming? Looking forward to the next 100-

Aloha, guys "j

Just wanted to let U know U guys really made my day. Last weekend I kicked off my Birthday Month (something my grandma and I do - like a birthday Advent). The very first day, as I was walking to work, I was listening to "Good Job Brain" (U guys Rock, btw) and heard the greeting I'd left for Ur 100th episode... It blew me away and made for an amazing Birthday Month surprize - I don't know what could top it.
I look forward to Ur show every week, and it's only gotten better as time goes on.

Thank U, Merci, Mahalo,
Jacin "j

Ha! I found her!

But wait...I have no idea what color her hair is, or whether she prefers croquet or tennis, or if she rides a limo or motorcycle! I'll never get that warrant!

I want to thank you for including my message at the end of your 100th podcast :) My Friend Melisa was moved to tears when she heard it and she said she loved it.
