Here is the correction. (There is no telling what will come out of my mouth at times.)

Hi again.

I was finishing up a book, and read this late at night. (I know better than to leave the disclaimer off.) Anyway --

That's great, Dale! All good now, thank you! :D

I want to mention that the duration times you give don't coincide with the actual duration (which includes the ending silence). I think it's better to give the whole duration when posting the url, to avoid confusion.

hello :)

back from holidays and finished off my PL jobs, so now I have time to record again :9: and of course I won't forget this monthly collection.

Here's a first biggie. I loved the dramatics in this one :9:

"Frances" by Charlotte Brontë (1816-1855) (she wrote under Currer Bell here, but I figured we use her real name, since she is famous)

Duration: 12:41 min.

Hi there,

Here is a SHORT addition to the collection. But it has a real message. Just imagine the 'busyness' of life then compared with today. :shock:

Too Busy by Mrs. Parley Nelson (?)

Hi,

I have a question. Can we assume that a well known poem by Longfellow is in the public domain?
