On Girls on Tape

@monicamcl When we were cleaning out my grandma's house last year we found a really old photo of a dead baby (it was in a casket, with flowers) and we have no idea who it was although presumably it was some sort of relative. Note to self: always write the names of dead people on the back of their photos.

On When to Touch a Painting*

@Bus Driver Stu Benedict This is why we can't have nice things.

On "The Photo That Brought AIDS Home"

@Craftastrophies That was amazing, thanks for sharing. I hadn't heard of The Julie Project before but now I won't forget it (in a good way.) Thanks very much.

On Paz, What Is Going On?

@mouthalmighty I had no idea about that either. Very excited to learn, however.

On Girls on Tape

How sad, I didn't know she had died. I remember hearing her years ago and it had an effect on me. Then I heard a small part of one of her pieces again recently on some other NPR show -- maybe two months ago? on "Hearing Voices" or something -- and was happy to hear it. I wondered how she was doing; they didn't provide an update and so I just found this out now. I am sure I will always remember her. I love radio.

On RIP, Sweet Riesling

There are some pretty nice rieslings coming out of the Finger Lakes area of New York State these days, but they are kind of hard to find especially out of state. But I totally recommend a wine-soaked weekend up there as a mini vacay option. (One hotel even has a water fountain that pours out free wine instead of water!)

On The Best Time I Found Out I Had HPV

@wee_ramekin Maybe go read some of this stuff, from the CDC? http://www.cdc.gov/std/default.htm

On The Best Time I Went Home With Someone I Didn't Realize Was So Young

@merg Maybe guys didn't watch it? I guess it was totally a chick show. I also had to explain to him what Dwayne Wayne flip-up glasses were. I can't see many dudes knowing/caring what those are regardless of their age.

On Just Out of Curiosity

@nogreeneggs White Plains checkin' in. (Or western CT depending on the time of day.) Anyone? Anyone?
