  1. Hi, Dan and Mary Ellen. Just listened to your talk with Linda Ballou. I have read Linda’s book about Isabella Bird and she has read my horse memoir At Home on a Horse in the Woods. My horse travels have been more inward than Linda’s: the latest one in the same state forest on the same horse for 21 years. My 2nd book is about the horse-related craft of braiding horsehair jewelry which allows me to hear wonderful tales about the owners who order jewelry from the tail hair of the horses they love. The covers and links to both my books are on my website: I am listed on LinkedIn but frankly don’t know how to navigate it. Not sure of my books fit into your blog concept, but if they do, I’d love to hear back from you. Regards, Jan(et) W. Alexander


  2. I can’t believe travel itch radio is still going strong; it has come to me as such a significant surprise. I’ve been listening to it for years now and have been a big fan. I wish them the best of luck!
