  1. Enjoyed the podcast. Please look into doing a technical fix to balance the volume between host and guest. Your volume is about half of the guest’s volume.

  2. It happened again!!- I wrote a comment and it disappeared before I finished. The first one was a comment on your coffee sunday about aging and staying active. I just had a one woman exhibition of 5X7 paintings – very successful!! My mission now is to keep my artist friends who have slowed down, to keep going thanks to you and your Sunday Coffee. But my main reason for writing is because on Raleigh’s podcast you said you were coming to Arizona. You better come see me!!!
