As I was surfing the web for the first time these past few weeks. I had the same thought over and over again in my head. All of these web sites feel a little like lost voices in the void hoping to land in your lap (top), to inspire, refresh and ponder the profound and the profoundly strange. What is this urge to tell our stories to effectively no one and everyone? I realized then, that besides this slow burn in my belly to do this, I really I want to learn as much about the topic as you do. And so, through sharing my experience, I re-learn what it was that I wanted to learn in the first place and why, and to deepen my understanding of my subject. I haven't yet seen Recreating Eden , or smelled all 892 roses in the Pickering Nurseries catalogue, and I certainly don't have all of the answers (and wouldn't it be lovely if I did). It's just that I am really out there every day seeing, doing and observing, and why not share it with you gentle reader? For it is you that I think about when I make a garden. To bring serenity and joy to your day when you stop to smell the roses I have chosen and planted for one of my customers, in your neighbourhood. Oh that was cheesy! cheesy but heart felt. I am glad I wrote it. Enjoy my site and my podcasts.

Dis After Dark - The Disney Podcast all about Walt Disney World, WDW, DLPR, Disneyland, Disneyland Paris & Universal Orlando Resort including Islands Of Adventure & City Walk, oh & Halloween Horror NightsJoin Now to Follow
This is the home of Disafterdark, a fortnightly podcast dedicated to everything disney with a little bit of the other Orlando theme parks thrown in for good measure (after all, the average brit is not going to travel 6000 miles and not visit Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Sea World or any of the others) Both Paul and Nick have been listening to podcasts for a few years and after taking part in a competition to win a co-presenting slot on what is probably the pinnacle of British Disney podcasts, Disneybrit (needless to say, they didnt win.) They got together and decided to release a Disney and Orlando focussed podcast of their own. With a bit of head scratching, (after all what is the point of competing with the multitude of disney podcasts out there) and after a small amount of beer, they decided to go for disafterdark as you hear it now. We have some recurring sections to the show, We have a look at some news, and some upcoming things and we discuss it in a chidlishly adult way. We have a DUMBASS QUESTION OF THE DAY, where we trawl the internet, forums, newsgroups, facebook etc and find those repetitive and quite frankly stupid questions that seem to be asked over and over again Nick has an occasional rant about whatever has taken his fancy this week in a section called ‘Soapdish’s Soapbox’ If you would like to drop us a line, you can email us at email@example.com , you can also find us on facebook.com/disafterdark or on twitter @disafterdark Here on our website you will find an amalgamated news feed from several of the top disney news sources including other disney podcasts, you can find our forums and chat section. We also hope to bring you live audio and/or video podcasts at some point in the future.

Travel Tails - Traveling with your pets & pet friendly hotels - Pets & Animals on Pet Life Radio (PetLifeRadio.com)Join Now to Follow
Pet Travel Podcasts and Pet Friendly Hotels These pet travel podcasts are about pet travel and pet friendly hotels. Planning and preparation are necessary when traveling with family pets. Consider whether your pet is comfortable when traveling. Some animals, like some people, function better in familiar surroundings. A car-sick animal can make a trip miserable for everyone. Some ill or physically impaired dogs and cats cannot withstand the rigors of travel. If this is the case, discuss options such as using a reliable pet-sitter or a clean, well-managed boarding facility with your veterinarian.

A Super Smiley Adventure with Megan Blake - Pets & Animals on Pet Life Radio (PetLifeRadio.com)Join Now to Follow
Welcome to A Super Smiley Adventure! In living with dogs, cats and horses, one thing I’ve learned is that if we are open to it, animals will lead us on amazing adventures. Whether it’s Super Smiley, my giant mutt, hiking and camping across New England and inspiring an entire Flash Mob Dance Campaign; Tout Suite The Travel Kitty traveling with me to Pet Friendly Resorts; or Starfire, our beautiful Arabian, leading me on inner journeys of self-discovery; my life with animals is always an adventure. Add the “happy chemicals” pets bring and a smiling dog, and voila, our show appeared. On our podcast, we explore travel destinations, inner journeys and any path of pet adventure we can find. Pets lower our blood pressure, lower our heart rates and increase our happy chemicals. We are their leaders, but if we can open to see where they lead us, we will begin our own Super Smiley Adventures. :)
