Links to information mentioned on Jay Whaley Blog Talk Radio with Harriete Estel Berman

I'm live with Jay Whaley Blog Talk Radio on Thursday, January 5, 2012. The first interview of the New Year starts at 3:00pm. California time (the center of the universe or the edge of a rift, depends on how you look at it.)

Below are links to information that were mentioned on the radio show. A one stop resource for our conversation.

If we mentioned anything that isn't listed here, let me know.

Normally, I don't show a link in the text,  but it is listed here so you can copy the text easily and share it with a friend.

Let me know if you need anything else.
What's on your mind?
