“I have always loved humor and laughter. As a young engineer I got an impulse to start a Dial-a-Joke in the San Jose/San Francisco area. I was aware of such humor services in other countries, such as Australia. This idea came from my belief in laughter. I could scarcely believe that I was the first person to create such a simple service in my region. Why was I the first? This was 1972 and it was illegal in the U.S. to use your own telephone. It was illegal in the U.S. to use your own answering machine. Hence it also virtually impossible to buy or own such devices. We had a monopoly phone system in our country then.” – Steve Wonziak on Net Neutrality
The Media Collective attended a recent event put on by the great folks at City Foods, the local food co-op:
City Foods and Thistle Byre Farms 101 – a short presentation intended to update the public, members, and volunteers, of City Foods progress and mission. Abbey Abbott-Rider will also provide a background of her family-run farm, Thistle Byre Farm. Ms. Abbott-Rider, Nurse Practitioner, will also speak about the nutritional benefits of eating whole, local foods.
After the presentations, we were able to chat with Mary Lehmkuhl of City Foods to get the run down of the food co-op.
What’s up with that?A show not hosted by Ryan Hill.
Wow. Another bank of audio finally. This stuff is from the 5th of October, so we’re a little back logged. Hopefully, with some new editing techniques, we can push through this pile and get the stuff out there to the masses. This portions questions were:
Will you sing us a verse from your favorite song?
What’s your opinion about the facts?
How do you feel about the republic?
What kind of plastic surgery should (fill in the blank with a politician’s name) should have?
You’re starving, what do you need to be made out of in order to eat yourself?
How do you feel about the pope running for president?
