free stuff

 
 
Here are some files and links for downloads and other Free Stuff such as audible tracks you can stream! Some links are to other pages, some will open a file for you to stream and listen to, others will take you to another website like YouTube. All these links will open a new page. I hope this Free Stuff is useful and enjoyable for you.

I have been going to Camp Exclamation Point for a number of years (9). This is a fabulous camp for kids and this year (2013) I was joined by Angela Klingler and Odds Bodkin. The above video is my performance for the kids.
A retelling of Clever Gretel.

This was recorded at the Tracy Memorial Library in New London, NH and was filmed by YCN for the Kearsarge Chronicle in December of 2011. The clip begins with a short interview, followed by a creepy, but silly story called The Viper!
