Louise's Food Blessing:
"May we be thankful for this good food, a gift from the earth and the work of human hands, for the life that dies so we may live, for our home that shelters and protects us (or "for this place which nourishes and sustains us"), and for the love and companionship we find and share together. Amen."

Here it is, hot of the presses, episode 65! Thank you so much for downloading the show, we're so glad that you have taken the time to share some of your day with us.
You thought we were through with books?! Well ya thought wrong, Sisters and Brothers, we're not done yet. Today we have a special guest with us, returning to the Wigglian Way is none other than Louise Bunn!! YAY! Also a voice that you might recognize, Uncle Fritz is in the house! We talk briefly about pagan 'How to' books before diving right in to some of Louise's favorite pagan 202 books. A reminder that you can find all the books that we've talked about in the last three episodes on the discussion page at our facebook site.
Tonight's feature album is the 2000 release by Emerald Rose, Bending Tradition, a pagan classic! From Bending Tradition we hear Red-Haired Mary and Pagan Girl. We end the show with Freya, Shakti, so make sure you listen right to the end.
Our second set of music comes from Louise's recent purchases of pagan music. (thanks Louise for supporting pagan music) From SJ Tucker's Blessing we hear For the Love of All Who Gather (extened version) and from Tricky Pixie's Mythcreants we hear Carousel.
We mention on the show some friends and loved ones who are dealing with some health issues, please take this time to hug the people that are closest to you, let them know how much you care!
Thanks again for everything that you do for us, It's All About the Love!
