  1. Wonderful, thanks Dave and everyone! Did you know that in Finland (and Slovenia, I think) Valentine’s Day isn’t about romantic love, but platonic love, a celebration of good friendship, and thus called Friendship Day.


    1. Wow, no, I didn’t know that! My already high estimation of Finland just went even higher.


  2. I’m caught up with the sing-song voice and story of Augustine…

    Sweet and enough for now.

    Thank you for this (so far)… just wonderful, Dave.


      1. Oh good. I wonder what the problem was there? Worrisome. I’m paying $30/year to store podcast audio off-site at WordPress.com just so it will stream without interruption (Via Negativa and its sister sites are on an abyssmally low-rent shared webhost).


  3. This is great. Thanks Dave, and all the contributors.
