    That song was AWESOME! You have a lovely voice. So modest too. :}

    You did a great job with your uke playing and your singing voice is lovely too.

    Getting closer to the present…

    Just wanted to say that your music at the end was wonderful! I wasn’t prepared for the singing…expecting just some instrumental thing…well done! And I always find it interesting that people with accents (er….not American?) tend to sound very American when they sing. I wonder why that is.

    You have a really lovely voice and the uke playing was great! But most of all I admire your bravery to sing in your podcast. Well done!

    Hope you had a merry christmas!

    Henriette (still in 2009 with my listening of your podcast but catching up and hoping you will find episode 29 soon)
