Hello and welcome to “End of Line”, or what we lovingly call EOL. We invite you to listen to our podcast and read along with these notes to learn more about the things we talk about on the show. Remember, a big part of what we do on each show comes from what we see online. That means you, the person reading this right now!, can have your say in what we talk about, eat, read or generally waste time with, all in the name of podcasting.

We start the show with a quote from “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.” You can Buy the excellent John Williams “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” Original Motion Picture Soundtrack from Amazon. As with any products you find in our show notes, purchasing through the links we provide will help support our sponsors.

We then jump in to the show by talking about what we’re going to talk about, because we enjoy being circular like that. During that discussion, we mention the Hudsucker Proxy and comment on the excellent soundtrack, which is available for purchase.

    I actually tried a Jones soda during my vacation in Seattle last week. But it wasn’t turkey&gravy, it was root beer and it was excellent. I had it with my lunch, which was also excellent and consisted of portobello on focaccia with a side of potato chips. They threw in a dill pickle too!
