from TownPlace Suites in Anaheim , change their minds and do the opener as a group and tell us what that was like.

Uncle Neptune 3:26
About the guy behind this week’s featured Creative Commons song.

Hi, Hello, Szia, Guten Tag, Bonjour, Aloha, Hola, Ni hao, Howdy! 4:28 
Laurie asks all of the listeners to stop by the “Hello” List at http://DailyAdventureTales.com/hi/ to leave a comment with his or her way of saying Hello, and his or her country and/or state. (Come on Grammar Girl, help me out, this sentence is tough!)

Picnic at Deukmejian Wilderness Park 6:42
Mom and I talk about picnics, mountains, her new apartment and answer the question, does it ever snow in California?

Jane talks Wine-Making and the Old Stone Barn 10:33
My friend Jane is a member of the Stone Barn Vineyard Conservancy and she tells us the history of the barn and vineyard, how they make the wine and the surprising way she got involved with this historical group. Really interesting! Thanks Jane.

Mark’s childhood view of the Old Stone Barn 15:48
Mark describes his wild and woolly experience of the Old Stone Barn and surrounding area when he was growing up in La Crescenta.

In the garden – last day of Thanksgiving 19:00
Mom and I discuss the fun adventures we had during her visit, what she might do for fun once she returns home to Washington and I promise to work on my grammar, so she won’t have to cringe when she listens to the podcast. Mark and Me, Mark and Me, Mark and Me…I tend to slip and say Mark and I in the objective case.
