Jim Boughton of PEG TV took this picture after we completed recording  "Historically Speaking" Episode 200, a tribute to the founder of the show Jim Davidson. I appreciate the extra work that Jim and Chelsea Vogel are putting in to incorporate past clips into the program. Thanks also to Tommy Leypoldt for his cameo appearance. It will be up and running in a few days.
