PL OK!

Hmm. Who is S. T. C.? Sometimes I can figure these out, but not here.

I was just listening yesterday to a chapter in a book by a Canadian homesteader, who talked about her uneducated, low-charactered neighbours always "borrowing" from them (never expecting to return the items). I wonder how she'd feel about this essay. :lol:

Thanks! I saw that essay title and wondered how it would relate to our Psalms project! :)

I have to admit I hadn't made the connection until you mentioned it.
I think I enjoyed reading these more than the psalms because the poet didn't need to force square pegs into round holes.

Yes, I hear you. And the text on this one (the type itself, and spelling) is easier to read!

PL OK, thanks!

Welcome! I'll put you in for these, but please do the 1-minute test before diving into these. The test isn't an audition; it's more a "sound check" to make sure your tech settings, volume, etc. are correct. :)

How would you like to be credited in the catalog? There are places for a catalog name (some use a nickname or forum name, some their real name) and a link to a personal web site or blog, if you have one. I recommend using whatever name you say (if any) when you say, "recorded by [your name]" as that's how listeners will look for you. (Keep in mind that prospective employers, classmates, enemies, etc. can also find you using the catalog name, so be cautious if privacy might be an issue.)
