Beer Us.

Catching up

It is the 8th Anniversary of the evening Jim and Melanie met! We talk briefly about that. (For the full-blown version of the story, tune in to our Valentine’s Special on February 11!) We celebrated at Starbucks while preparing for the show.


Melanie did a full presentation on how to insert stories into presentations…to a group of storytellers! This was at a Toastmasters meeting, and it was extremely well received. She is going to be parlaying that into a series of presentations, or at least a video presentation.


Jim is continuing to write (FONTANA Episode 2 will begin soon!), and has 2 auditions coming up. Most importantly he is counting the days until he starts his new position at a company that he thinks will be a better match for him. He’s looking to upgrade his camera equipment, starting with a new lens. is happy and optimistic for the future.

In all seriousness, though, if you like what you hear on our show, please consider sending in a donation, purchasing one of Melanie’s books, or getting a shirt at our CCW Store page.

Good news

A big-hearted young boy asked his mom to pack a second lunch for him every day. The reason will inspire you.

Another “good cop” story at a time when it’s just not too common anymore.
