Oh wow, I wasn't expecting this! I was just searching up for some information on Mr. Cullum and found your blog. That was one of the best readings of that story I've ever heard, and I am going to play it again later when the family arrive for dinner. Thanks for sharing this. :)

By the way, I have a private question/comment to submit to you. If you have a moment at some point in the near future, contact me at I am posting this here because I am not really sure where else to do so, so thanks and my apologies ahead of time for doing so in your public comments. Merry Christmas to you both!
