    Everytime I see new ESL Podcasts showing up for us, I myself need to be suprised with this question — “to what do I owe this pleasure!” ….
    ‘Cause I do know people to whom I must thank to and it takes no extra “elbow grease” from me to fiip on somw keys on Keyboard to type “Thank You.”
    So, I do so ……THANK YOU so much!!
    And I’m glad I do.:)
    And I dare say that this “THAK YOU” is definitely not a ” fake politeness” because it really comes from my heart! :)

  4. Peter Says:

    Yes dear myo
    “To what we owe”
    The time has come for us.we should pull together and help Eslpod perpetuate The deed for the years to come.
    Remember,
    Eslpod is not a right ; it is a privilege

    Yours
