Hey guys-

Thanks for the shout out for the
new baby. We are tired, but doing well. As you might imagine, I am not having as much time to write as I would like right now. Sorry to disappoint you with the name. I mentioned just how broken up you guys were to my wife. She said that if I insisted on changing Hannah's middle name to "Decentia" she would divorce me and take away all visitation rights. So, I guess I'm going to stick with the middle name we originally picked.

Usually, I download the show from iTunes and listen to it on my iPod on the way to and from work. Saturday, my wife and both girls were taking naps so I listened to the streaming version from the blog page (note to self: when listening to the streaming version, it is a bad idea to click on the links in the show notes during the "Tech Talk" segment, as the sudden loss of the audio feed tends to cause severe aggravation).

I went to Hulu and watched an episode of Doogie Howser. Verdict? Not bad. Although watching Doogie roll off line after line of medical terminology and diagnoses just makes me giggle. I wonder how many takes it took to get some of that right?

Thanks for the special music at the end. Make Hulk happy.

I am looking forward to see what you guys come up with for live interaction during recording. It should be fun.
