Two more shows to go and then I am off to Barbados for a couple of weeks or so. I'll be doing Breaking The Tethers on December 8 and 15 and then will be skipping the December 22 and 29 and January 5 programs. I'm not sure yet who is covering for me but I'm sure whoever it is will do a great job in my absence. My first show of 2010 will be January 12.
