First, it is brigt, sunny, and shiny in Key West this Thursday morning. I want to apologize for not getting this podcast posted sooner. I've had a thousand issues, the first being technical issues.
It was Tuesday morning, that I woke up and I was burned to Hell. So, I decided to stay out of the sun, get on the Internet, and get out on the town. So I walked down the street to an Internet Cafe, and started producing this show. Boy did I have issues! First, this damn laptop had no available hard-disk space, so I was trying to clear it all off and make space. I didn't realize how much space Audacity needed to move files around. When I am at home on my desktop, I have tons of disk space, so that is not an issue. Then I tried to encode the podcast to an MP3 file, and I didn't have LAME installed. I finally got that installed and half-way through the conversion, my system had a BSOD (blue-screen-of-death). Later that evening I finally got an internet connection at the Island House.
As it turns out, there is an internet connection here at the Island House. However, only ONE antenna works, and that is by the bar/pool ... not a bad thing, but I also wish it had worked in my room!!! Anyway, so here I am in a sarong, not naked but close to it. I am by the bar/pool and having some breakfast as I type this.
I am having a wonderful time still, and I was also fortunate earlier this week to do my first interview. Yes, three lovely drag queens broke my interview cherry, and you'll catch them at the end of this podast. Here are some links that I think you might like in regards to my podast:

Again I want to apologize for taking so damn long to post. Yes, I know I am on vacation, but I wanted to let everyone know I was alive and well. I will be recording once more this week, probably tomorrow, and I am sure I will get it posted tomorrow. And, again, thanks for listening and being so patient with me.
