    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

  • iTunes RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

Don’t put off until tomorrow…

Filed under: General — Charlie Summers @ 7:37 pm

As many of you know, I am disorganized to a fault. I make lists, and eventually get everything finished, but “reaction” items (things that have to be done now because of some imminent crisis) always come first, and the not-so-emergent stuff gets knocked down the list.

But I really need to get my act together and organize better, something that was driven home this afternoon. To explain, months ago on the anniversary of Norman Corwin’s 100th birthday KCET re-ran a program from 1969 of Mr. Corwin directing his classic, The Plot to Overthrow Christmas. I asked on the Digest if anyone had recorded the program, and if so requested a copy. Herb Harrison, a long-time subscriber and someone with whom I had occasionally corresponded, was kind enough to email me and tell me he would send a VHS video tape, which he did.

That package sat unopened on my desk for a few months before I finally found the time to record it into one of the computers and create a DVD. I slowly, over the following months, added some discs to that stack on the shelf, and finally got around to sending those disks to Mr. Harrison early this year, with my belated but heartfelt thanks.

Unfortunately, today I received the package returned to me, with a note that Herbert George Harrison passed away in the first week of December, 2010.

So over the next few days I’m going to try to catch up on all the things I owe folks…if there’s anything I told you I would send and haven’t yet, drop me email and remind me. Meanwhile, I will try to get myself organized enough that nothing like this will ever happen again.
