    I simply clicked on the icon and was taken to my windows media player. No problem. I now can put your pod casts on my MP3 and will be doing so. Congratulations!!! Great podcast. I will be looking forward to each and every one. I am going to write about this and I am also going to tell my buddies over at Lumberjocks. I am excited for you and your new venture. Good Luck!!!
