57 Weeks pOdcast -- Episode Number 10 -- The Apple Dumpling Episode
This week in History, Columbus set sail for Asia. Also, "Wild Bill Hickok" was murdered with a poker hand of Aces and Eights. Listen to the song in the Bible about making a "joyful noise" to God. But the main topic is "Apple Dumplings." I'll tell you how to bake them, and reflect on the person who taught me, mid 20th Century.
57Weeks pOdcast -- Episode No. 009 -- Out from the deep freeze, this episode on the history of personal computing was originally recored in 2010.
This is a wild episode recorded by Tom Truex in 2010. I'm assuming you too consider a short history of personal computing. That's it this episode. No Bible comments, book reviews, movie reviews or history lesson for this episode only.
Back on schedule with the regular stuff next week.

This week in History. In the USA, Independence Day falls on the 4th of July again this year. Why did the colonists get involved in an insurrection (I thought that was a bad word)??
This week in the Bible. A short discussion of the section in the Bible that calls Jesus Christ, the "Word." And why it is impossible to separate God from His Word.
The main topic is about handling dispute. We consult a 15th century monk named Thomas à Kempis.
