We turned some of the nastiest rock and clay into a very productive garden with not much more than horse manure from the stables. The piles would grow mushrooms and various other seeds if it rained on them before they were moved to the fields.
There are not a lot of nutrients in it, but it does make a great soil conditioner.

Hey, Paul. I got my brick, and took a pack to the poker game. We have been playing every Friday night for 40-some years. we have pretty much seen everything.
When I pulled out the pack of Permaculture cards, I got a serious blank stare and much skepticism from Michael, the guy whose house we pay at. After a while though, he was going through them one by one. I saw your devious plan at work...

I am very sorry to say the recorder crashed in the middle of the webinar. I did manage to get a partial back up. It was a disaster - the first half was killer...

It will be both educational and fun. The webinar format lets you interact with the presenter and ask questions through a chat window during the conversation. This is going to be live, unscripted and the questions you ask will determine the path the conversation takes.
If you have a really interesting question for Paul - plus a mic and a headset - we may bring you on to ask your question on the air.
When the webinar is over, you'll get links to the replay with Paul's answers to as many of your questions as time allows.
I fixed your audio file. I didn't edit it or sweeten it, just made it playable. You can get working copy here: http://nobsmarketing.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/not-so-free-lightbulbs-farmer-laboratory.mp3
Oops. that is mangled - all I hear is croaking and growling. Is it really 5 1/2 hours long? I think it is shorter than that and really, really drawn out.
Paul,
I haven't listened to the audio yet, but if there is persistent background noise issue, the noise reduction tools does a good job. Leave yourself 10 seconds of more of dead air at the beginning andor end of the audio. Select this dead air area, click noise reduction then click 'get sample'. Select the entire track, click noise reduction then click apply. It removes the noise in the back ground pretty well.
If the issue was playback streaming and you want to cut down the file size, go to a lower sampling rate. IIRC, the default is 128K but 96K is better than CD quality and for the net 44K is more appropriate and still very good quality.
