It was fun being on TV!

Here is a photo of me with Dana R. Kohler, the Producer and Host of the TV program, "Senior Forum". What a super-nice guy! He made me feel right at home, and quite comfortable even though this was my first time on a TV talk show. We discussed how people can use the power of the Internet to turn a hobby into a business. He asked about my tatting, hand dyed thread, my book, how I got started setting up a blog and Etsy shop, etc. Even the fact that I started the cello later in life was mentioned. All in all, it was very exciting to have my very own chance to be "in the limelight"!

There is not a link to the program online. If anyone wishes to buy a DVD copy (they are $10 each), they can contact Dana R. Kohler by email at Drtrax(at)aol.com
The episode that I appear on is #185. I was very pleasantly surprised to see how good I look on TV!
