I've gone to Yahoo groups, my email, clicked on everything I could think of / see. I'm getting nowhere and this will be over before I can get in.

Thanks for the recording ... Big smile to Tere who can be heared typing frenetically trying to get everyone in :-))

A tip for those who have low bandwidth: It's very demanding on your internet connection to stream audio, so to listen to the recording, right-click, and choose "save link as" That will download the mp3 file to your computer and you don't need to stream from the internet (in my case it kept loading every 5 or 6 seconds, it was SO annoying!!!)

By the way, Kudoz to BaW Moderators, this interview is fantastic!!!
