Just Talking About the App

You can now get Just Talking through an iOS and Android App – for $1.99. Obviously, I have some things I need to elaborate on so we’re all clear on what’s what. Read More.

One Hundred Fifty

This makeover is a representation of my motivation and willingness to keep this silly little experiment going. This makeover is a celebration. Read More.

An Expansion Proposal

Keeping things to an hour certainly maintains flow but when there are major bullet points left out of the conversation or topics lacking depth of discussion I feel that I am doing a disservice to everyone involved. Read More.

Episode 100

Rather than continue the tradition of finding a new guest and introducing him or her to the wonderful world that is my listening audience I’m going to change things up a bit. The guest for Episode 100 will be…

For Your Review

I try not to make asking for things of you, my eager reader, a frequent visit. I have posted about Tour de Cure and Step Out and many of you have generously donated. Thank you. The 2011 Tour de Cure event in my area is in the beginning of June. I will be signing up […]

As things progress you can be sure that I will be tweaking the layout to make sure I am taking up as little space as possible with the peripherals so the main content keeps the focus. With that in mind, let me walk you through some of the design choices I made.
