No problem Bill!

I was surfing around today and see that theVAP is featured podcast on the front page of www.podfeed.net.

They have a top 100 list of podcasts there. If we could only get everyone who downloads the show to subscribe (its free) then we would easily be in this top 100 list.

Just imagine, a day when we'll no longer have to hear the statement "I didn't know they still made Airstreams!"
