This is awesome Diane, great find.  Definately worth a listen folks.

Diane, I took the liberty of posting the story here instead of just the link.  I'm not sure if the audio player works with all browsers, but folks can listen on The Story website.

This the real stuff, baybeh.  Thanks.

 

I caught 'em on Tavis Smiley's show, a ways back - but forgot to look 'em up.

Even a shot of a CBG on the wall in thier video.

Wow, Wade!  That was great!  Thanks for the link!
