Pleased To Meet You!

Posted by messercbutter on July 10th, 2012

How many people do you “meet” through social media and the web? How often do you form a relationship with these people and pick up the phone or schedule a Skype call?

Host Christian in Portland did so with a friend of 5+ years he knew only through Twitter: Faryl in San Diego.

Here you’ll find their weekly discussion of: current events, politics, technology and snippets of their crazy family or friends.

And as always we’re…Pleased To meet You!

PTMY 167 Oh, This Is Why People Journal!

Posted by Christian Messer on September 5th, 2016

Faryl and Christian speak discuss: Therapy techniques, journaling, Faryl might journal(!!), Antiques Road Show spinoff “Genealogy Roadshow”, an episode of “Secrets of the Dead” involving Jamestown (see below), the awesome movie, “The Witch” and the writer/director’s insistence on on having the script dialogue in “Essex dialect of the time.”; they reminisce of the almost 10 years they’ve known each other, purchasing Apple products is like getting a pet, Kindles and ebooks from the library, and the child in the gorilla exhibit at the zoo.
“Archaeologists have been excavating in Jamestown for more than 20 years. In April 2012, a team of Historic Jamestowne archeologists discovered something surprising in their excavation. In the trash layer of a cellar, among the butchered animal bones and household trash discarded by the Jamestown colonists, they found the mutilated skull and severed leg of a 14-year-old English girl dating back to 1609. What can these bones tell us about what really happened at Jamestown?”
