"The Tudors" give-away and survey extended

I'm going to leave the survey open for another two weeks because I'm going to be very, very busy in the next week or so, so I don't think I'll get a chance to deal with all of that this weekend.

BTW, I was originally hoping to get the October podcast out this weekend (Oct 13-14), but it looks like next weekend is more realistic. I'm slowly moving them up towards the beginning of the month, but I probably won't start getting them out in the first week of the month until the start of the new year.

Here's the link to the survey, if you haven't already taken it.

Image of Elizabeth's Birth Announcement

Here is the image of the birth announcement that I read in the September episode of the podcast. Sorry it took me a while to get it posted! I'll add it to the letters page on the the site (along with the transcript) eventually.
