Episode #1 is here – Welcome

Ms. Viv

Welcome to Ba Ba Blacksheep a podcast hosted by BowPeep for all the fiberholics out there. I’m glad you dropped by and I hope you enjoy the show. Put yourself on the map.

Hi, I’m BowPeep a shepherdess who is a fiberholic.  I wish to remain anonymous, one…I’m not an expert and secondly I wish to protect the innocent.

I have learned a lot and want to “Pay it Forward” by sharing things I’ve learned along the way.

If you discover who I really am, please keep it a secret and instead experience the joy of “Pay it Forward“.

      Thanks for the letting me know. I think the map had some problems overnight since I had several people tell me they couldn’t get the map to work. It appears to be working now. After opening the map, click on ADDITIONS at the top, then click ADD MARKER – SIMPLE. Fill in the blanks and click SUBMIT at the bottom and it should work ok. Let me know if there’s still a problem. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too, thanks!
