I am truly ambivalent about reaching this episode.

For the past several months, I've enjoyed listening to David's excellent podcasts on demand, as it were. There were 176 of them, after all, and it would take me quite a while to go through them all. But go through them all I have. And while doing so has given me immense enjoyment, it also means that I must **gasp!** listen in REAL TIME now.

Now, when I hear David talk about taking his normal week off or taking multiple weeks off for a holiday, it will actually mean something. It won't just be a by-the-way detail I largely ignore as I make my way through another episode.

Oh well. All good things come to an end eventually. Thankfully, History of England hasn't yet, so I can still enjoy it -- delayed though that enjoyment may be from time to time.

Paul, I am touched! You could take a year away from me; then you'd come back refreshed and could do it in a lump again. Just a thought.

Yes, Mr. Crowther, I'm positive you have discussed sheep, wool, and cloth-making before in the podcast. Not sure which episode though. It may have been way back in 2013, I don't know. It was probably time revisit it. :)

I enjoy having the "color" of what life was like and such. Trade and industry are important for understanding a lot of the conflicts, too.

Being in the same boat as Paul above, I must say that a year long hiatus doesn't appeal. I think a much better solution would be for Crowther to produce another 167 episodes in.. oh, say... two to three weeks... I think I could wait three weeks, but more than that... nah.
