I want to pass long thanks to some of you who have recently used the donation button on the left side bar and on some posts. I am very grateful. From time to time I collect the names of those who have made donations and, when I say Mass, I remember you at the altar. It is an honor and duty to pray for benefactors.
Also, some of you have shown support for WDTPRS by casting your vote in the Bloggers Choice Awards. Let’s keep our Catholic blogs at the top of all the lists! This award site requires registration, which is pesky – I know. Your help is appreciated.
I have received a few items from my amazon.com wish list, et al., which I would like to acknowledge.
First, I received music CD’s of the Norbertines in Orange, CA and from St. John Cantius in Chicago, that being a disk of music for Holy Week. I look forward to them and will share some of it on Radio Sabina. The St. John’s Christmas music disks are excellent.
I received an electric heating element for the birdbath another person sent, I couldn’t tell who. I am a little hesitant to set this up. The heating coil looks… well.. pretty serious. I am afraid I will wind up with Siskin Stew. Experiments are in order.
BK of NJ fired off a small digital voice recorder which will be very useful when I ramp up the PODCAzT projects I would like to get going. It could be useful for on the spot interviews, etc. Also, I suspect I will find other good uses… pro memoria.
RR of IN sent Ciceronian Controversies which are translations of letters of great Italian Renaissance humanists, such as Poliziano and Pietro Bembo. It should be interesting.
A real prize came in the form of a condensor microphone which connects by USB port. This mic should reduce background hiss and make recording things much easier. The invoice didn’t indicate who sent it.
I am contemplating a new format for PODCAzTs and ways to reduce their production time and raising production quality. I want to create a template and fit each project into predefined time segments.
I am very grateful for your kindness, support and good wishes.
