Merry (White) Christmas, The Royal Podcast and some thanks for 2006

25 12 2006

This morning I was woken by a hailstorm and a semi-white Christmas morning. The hail didn’t sit long on the ground, but it’s the closest to a White Christmas I’ve ever had here in Australia (coldest Australian Christmas day in history today folks).

It’s official, podcasting is mainstream. The Queen is podcasting the Christmas message on The Royal Podcast, and it made the mainstream news.

Last but not least, some thanks for some of my favourite content producers, all of you are Time Magazine’s Person of the Year:

Thank you for your mention, I’m honoured to be in such great company. A semi-white Christmas in Australia, a green, warm Christmas here in Chicago….and the likes of you and I making Time’s Person of the Year. Surely the end is nigh….but do you know what the rates are for Apocalypse insurance?

Here’s to a joyous 2007. Keep listening, we have lots of great and impressive guests on the Cranky Middle Manager show.

The only option is to sue God:

Oh, and governments who don’t believe in Global Warming.
