I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I myself spent it with family up in Wisconsin and the thought of elevators didn’t even cross my mind for a full four days. I haven’t had a getaway like that in a long time.  Now back to work. Not a tone of articles on the show today but some that have some weight to them and worth saving.  Also on the program today we’ll cover the calendar of events and provide an update on the EESF’s progress in reaching 700,000 children. Note that we're fast approaching the half way point in the year and we're a little short on our goal. Help us reach it by clicking here.

Next week we will have surpassed a full four years of shows which is awesome, starting our fifth. I’ll give a short recap of stats, downloads, listeners etc which I haven’t been keeping track of due to time restraints. Thanks to you I keep doing what I’m doing and I’m still having a fun time doing it. So thanks for tuning in today everyone!
