Yesterday I did a segment of WWL-TV to talk about SBS, I encouraged folks to get out and buy local, to get something to refresh the home for the holiday season.

Unfortunately time was way too short and the graphics I sent to show what I was talking about didn't get shown. Instead the director had me do live teasers. I don't mind, but it ate into my prep time, including a quiet moment to go over my notes. Live TV is fun, but it is not without challenges.
