Spring is coming ...
I am sorry to leave you high and dry for so long. So far 2023 has been nearly as crazy as the year before.
There will be a slurry of posts coming up on the Substack as I try to catch things up. No worries, I won’t be sending an onslaught of email, just this one right now with links to posts you may find interesting.
I do want to invite you my 50th video podcast on March 31. I will be holding a contest in celebration of that milestone. I will be offering one enamel coffee cup, one ceramic coffee mug, and one Holstein House round logo t-shirt as prizes.
Using the Streamyard Giveaway tool, I will announce a hashtag phrase that those present will post and the tool will choose a winner. So, for example, if I say the hashtag for the enamel mug is #robinisgreat, you will enter that as a comment and the Streamyard tool will do it’s magic and choose a winner. I’ll have the prize shipped directly to the winner. How do you participate? You subscribe to my YouTube channel, or Holstein House Facebook page.
Speaking of fun! Check out the Holstein House Etsy shop! There is an interesting discount code. Read about it here.
I had the pleasure to interview one of West Virginia’s greatest fiddle player; Stan Bumgardner. I’ve known Stan Bumgardner for over 20 years. I met him when I started dating my husband. Stan played fiddle in the band Rockin Horse. The interview is a podcast but you can read more here.
We dumped DirecTV. I started using DirecTV in 1999. I purchased the sattelite system at Sam’s Club. The package included the dish, two boxes, and two remote controls. I had an account with Sling when it first got started so I checked it out. Read more about my change and the savings here.
In one of the most difficult YouTube videos and Podcasts I have done I shared with my followers why I observe what I call ‘radio silence’ twice a year. It began on March 7, 2013, the first anniversary of my son’s suicide, then I repeated on May 1, his birthdate. See the post here, watch the YouTube here, or listen to the podcast here.
I have to also apologize to my friend Lisa over at Two Lane Renaissance . I’m supposed to do regular posts for her and I have really let her down this calendar year. I will do better.
Please subscribe if you haven’t yet, here and the other social media sites. I’d love to have you join in a live stream and the only way to do that is to be there when I go live! My usual schedule is Tuesday and Friday mornings at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time in the U.S.
We will catch up more later!
