Modcast #241: The House That Suave Built

Welcome to Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World, the 241st show of that name, if you can believe it. The long march to episode #500 continues, and I'm almost halfway there. Summer seems to have finally arrived in Seattle. Temperatures are pushing the mercury up above 80 degrees, which around here is pretty warm. The skies are blue, the nights are long (not Alaska long, but long enough) and it does indeed seem like the dog days are here at last. As Natalie Babbit put it: "These are strange and breathless days, the dog days, when people are led to do things they are sure to be sorry for after." Well, I don't think I've done anything on this week's show that I will be sorry for after, but you'll have to listen and judge for yourself.
