The Not Old Better Show is a Useful Podcast
I listened to the precious episode. Thank you very much! Every line touches the heart. It seems that I was lost in another state for a while, but now I’m back with Paul, and I love this show!
Thank you, Faye, and My thanks to Mickela Mallozzi for her generous time today, please check out our show notes for more details about Mickela Mallozzi’s upcoming Smithsonian Associates presentation.
My thanks to the Smithsonian team for all they do to support the show.
My thanks to you, my wonderful Not Old Better Show audience on radio and podcast. Please be well, and be safe, which I’m telling you each show, followed by my message to eliminate assault rifles. Only members of the military use these weapons. Assault rifles are killing our children and grandchildren in the very places they learn: school. Let’s do better. Let’s talk about better. The Not Old Better Show on radio and podcast. Thanks, everybody, and we’ll see you next week. Today’s music, from the Smithsonian Folkways Dances of the World albums, which I thought particularly relevant, and the song is titled Tarantella From Naples, known as the Neopolitan Tarantella the dance came from the practice of pressing grapes for wine by jumping on them with one’s bare feet…Brilliant…thanks always to everyone.
