I thought I should finally mention (in lieu of actually making a new podcast, for which I've many lame excuses, not to be placed into print here), that we did *in fact* have a contest winner for the Negativland CD contest of last month.

Vish Tymkin, who writes the Antique Athlete Blog, was declared the winner, for her comment.  She received her CD, all the way around the other side of this round speck of iron and dust flying through space at 67,000 miles per hour (107870 km per hour) around the sun.

Vish likes to play Canoe Polo, a sport that sounds a wee dangerous to me, but I'm not that type of risk taker.  While I was looking at Wikipedia to research this "extreme" sport, I also found out that today (May 29) is Oak Apple Day, which was mentioned in Thomas Pepys' Diary.  I never heard of such a thing, but then, the current German/Dutch extraction of British Nobility which history and circumstances have dredged up and taken over from the true British Royal line, (official website) outlawed the celebration which commemorates the restoration of King Charles II of Britain, over a century ago.
