For many years, we have been involved with the Fulbright awardees who arrive to Hungary for a semester or a full year. Depending on their needs, wants, and desires, we have become friendly with those who choose.
One such person was Nicole Fiore. She was here half time as a Fulbright counselor for potential US recipients as well as those who wanted to study in the US with the rest of her time working at Central European University. The reason I mention her now is because she sent me the note below. This just so happened to come in at an optimal time allowing me to connect it with something else.
I saw your latest blog posting and just wanted to let you know that if you ever want to give some property away I would be more than happy to take it off your hands!! Just kidding!
I hope you and Ron are well and enjoying some much deserved time off from teaching.
I love reading your blog postings as they come into my inbox. I imagine you telling the stories at the kitchen table as we are all drinking wine and playing apples to apples. The thought puts a big smile on my face.
Have a great time traveling this summer and be safe.
Nicole imagines me telling these stories at the kitchen table. Well, in the same batch of e-mails, there was an article about a program called Podcastomatic that will convert blog posts into podcasts. Instead of reading them, you can listen to them. You can find the online program here; there is nothing to download. I tested it out and can say it is marvelous for the short-term or perfect for those with vision issues. So you don’t miss a thing, it shows:

Actually, the voice sounds somewhat like me if I had a cocktail of Thorazine mixed with a touch of Ativan before recording. Regardless, it is worthy of checking out. There may be other blogs you want to hear.
