    Cool , good stuff
    My last comments on the previous entry has a taste of criticism. I didn’t mean to criticize the fashion in which Jeff and his crew educate us.
    The method Is perfect in every level.
    It is totally undrestandable that some emails get lost in the shuffle die to the high volume of arriving emails.
    I am told that I am a smooth talker which is work perfectly with girls :)
    I didn’t mean to be an ingrate jerk
    I really grateful for having Eslpod around.
    I dread even thinking about the day that Eslpod walks away on us merely because the cost of running Eslpod has gone up off-chart

    [my honoring message continues….. :) ]

    Clearly enough, my “Thanks” goes to Jeff, Lucy, and ESL Podcast Team too!!
    ‘Cause again, as you know (at least, as Jeff has once told you! :) ) “Thank you” is never unnecessary!!
    And, I never take, and never will, these ESL podcasts for “granted”, ’cause they are always “gifted” ones, aren’t they ? :)
