If you cannot listen to the podcast, please do stop and have a moment of silence for the families that are hurting and are in need of help due to Hurricane Katrina. Many have died in this hurricane, and being that Peter Franzi, owner of the Men Who Crochet yahoo group, cannot reach his family in Mississippi, we were unable to procure an interview at this time. Please keep Peter and all of those who have been affected by this travesty. If you would like to help, click on one of the pictures below and show your support! Thanks! ..................
