Hola 👋🏽

Hello QP

Just stopping by to say thank you guys for all you do for those of us who tune to watch and listen to the Podcast. It’s like going to night school in college and you both are the Professors for the QP Class. It is a treasure, I must say. The information that is available with you both is fascinating!!! I’m still looking for the day for QP to have a Show with a live audience. I’m speaking that into existence, Amen. I will keep supporting, watching, listening and sharing for my remaining days on earth. Thank You for this corner of the sky that we all can come to and hang out every Thursday night (including Whatever, Comma). Must love, blessing & music.
