You can get all the details by logging on to our web site www.denissnowdon.com and then on to the link 2008 cruise. Denise and I would love to have you join our group.

The 2007 spring ratings have just been released, and needless to say, I am extremely happy to let you know that in the 35+ age group, “ A Little Breath of Scotland” is the # 1 show in it’s time slot on a Sunday afternoon. My thanks to all of you who are supporters of the programme.

Our son Paul is a very fine photographer, ( he takes after his father !) and has a showing of some of his work, entitled “ conversations with Angkok”. running in Toronto from May 1-31st. You can get more information from his own web site, www.paulsnowdon.com

We have had great response from people who now can listen to the show on the internet, at www.am740.ca. Perhaps you know someone who would enjoy listening, and is outside our broadcast area. You may win some brownie points by letting them know all about the show!

Have a great summer, and thanks again for listening.
