A few months back, I discovered “podcasts,” those Internet media files that seem to be popping up all over the web. Some of them are free, while others require a paid subscription. Some are quite intriguing and educational; others, due to their questionable content, should be avoided like the plague. I am currently in the process of learning how to add these novel little gems to Gooseberry Lane, so watch the sidebar for new additions in the coming weeks. It may take me a while to figure this out, so please be patient as I increase my computer skills. Thank you.
Podcasts added thus far:
- The Lutheran Hour
- Grammar Girl
- Mr. Manners

Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.
