Hmm, I can still hear all of these - are you sure the correct version is uploaded?
I'll check when I get home later today

Sections 18 and 19 are PL OK! :thumbs:

I think that's the last of the "old" sections - when do I get to hear the "new mic" versions?

Section 20 (Chapter 9 part 2) has just one mispronunciation (and it's a hard word - I had to look it up myself!)

at around 22:00 "gewgaws" needs a hard "g", two of them actually: http://howjsay.com/pronunciation-of-gewgaws

Rest of the section was PL OK! :thumbs:

It has been almost a month since this project saw any action, so I thought I'd do a recap of where we are, and ask ya'll to check in and confirm.

I have raw sections 21, 22, and 23 to edit. 21 is just about finished, should be ready tomorrow. 22 and 23 coming shortly too.
Section 20 still needs a final tweak by Kristin.

How is the new microphone working for you Kristin? Are you ready to kick this project back in gear? We are 2/3 through it, with 11 more chapters to go.

Hi, Elizabeth. I presume you are still on board, just asking to be sure.

I am rarin' to go to get this project catalogued! It is going to be GREAT!

Ah, I did upload edited Section 21 after all, with PL Notes listed a few posts above. That one is now in your court, Kristin. 22 and 23 are coming shortly.

Thanks for checking in Elizabeth.

Still here, and ready to get this done. Life has been a bit hectic the last couple of months, and July will be even worse, but everything calms in August, so I'll get the last bunch then. It's working like a dream!
