"Mail's john stevens. I suppose we should start initially just getting your reactions to what has been happening in. Afghanistan are what impacts the the to tax which we saw yesterday will have all the public opinion and also sort of political strategy. You'll take first of all job so obviously yesterday was an absolutely terrible day. And then you've seen today the evacuation flights coming out with afghanistan in the stop winding up at some point today. I think the next few days going to be really difficult for the government when you've got pictures on the news of desperate people who just didn't make those flights back. I think that's when it's going to be hard for really for boris johnson. His ministers and obviously not you so president biden at that press conference. He just seemed over wound. He seemed a bit confused. He was playing. I think is gonna be really hard for him with the american public and you could see the on his face. He just like sony defeated melanie thompson. Heart the chairman of the foreign affairs select committee but also Seventy afghanistan himself. He's just saying we may find ourselves the biggest hostage crisis the. Uk's ever seen basically. The implication of there will be people who we would've liked to have got out of afghanistan. Who are going to be trapped though we know will wave now how to get them out. I sadly i think that that's inevitable. I think they will be people had their that. We would have liked to get out and it's it's terrible some such safe but i mean we have short memories and i think i think that it won't take long for people to forget some of that also stuff to be honest studying golota people to stop watching it And i think they will see a language change you know when when humanitarian crisis starts become unwanted immigrants and on the put you start to. There will come a point at which people will start. What's the difference between you know the benighted afghanistan seekers arriving at dover on a on a rubber boat and and the push so that we're seeing trying to escape from the taliban. I mean i. I don't like it but it's it's it's real world i was gonna ask about that about Because boesch johnson talking yesterday about trying to find enough housing to accommodate Afghan refugees and he said it was basically if enough housing to a whole new town. And i just wonder how quickly john the sort of the public mood of this is a total situation afghanistan. We must do all we. Can you start you start coming up against people actually saying well. We don't want afghans in our town we don't you know there's a sun wheel tension there for the moment you'll see lots of local groups popping up china organized collection so that people can get close to begin toys of these people have left afghanistan with nothing but the clothes deduct pan. You've seen the conditions on those. You flies people which just packed in had out accurately nothing wisdom. So i think actually there's a lot of kindness out there. I think a lot of people will do. They can to help these people. But as bush johnson points out their own awful lot number of people that we have managed to rescue thinks about fifteen thousand people which he said same number of people as living seconds prestwick or abergavenny. And how do you kind of integrate. These people into the country oversee. You've got the problem of bounce. Find enough houses. One of the issues that was raised. This week was of these families. Think have Up to seven people in them. You just don't have the housing stock of as larger houses. Said where you put those people and then obviously the thing that you won't do as soon as possible is integrate those people so get these children in school. Get these people in these. People want to contribute to our country but to be able to do that. They need to be in communities where they're kind of settled and can start to kind. Put down roots. yeah. I don't suppose i love. Is that being handled in in the best possible way. So you don't voice so you're trying to avoid some of those problems to. Let's move away from afghanistan next. We'll talk about it Throughout the show today melanie become speeds you in scotland and not get your take on this This decision by the scottish alastair jackson to give little sturgeon something to aim for he said if polling consistently show sixty percent of scots want a second referendum. The uk government will will give them. What'd you make of that. Well it's interesting. Because he said he don't so to say they have to get sixty percent new referendum. He says We have to have sixty percent wanting a referendum not wanting independence but wanting a referendum. And i find that that you know that's the pinhead dancing is a bit disingenuous. Isn't it Because you know who's gonna want to referendum if they don't want independence but th the semantics going on there too. But i also think it's it's interesting because the figure that's privately thought of by the smp kind of a safe you have to be pulling safely and consistently sixty sixty percent before you even go to a second referendum so you know it it tallies very much with Nicholas cage and oh caution. Yeah i don't suppose the thing is johnny development. You you there's Both sides are quite happy for there not to be a second referendum to keep saying no that keeps his side happy Nicholas surgically keeps saying. Oh post thompson keeps saying no. How typical without as wanted to have a referendum because polling shows that she she might struggle to win it and turkey. Joe i mean you've seen nicholas surge talking about a referendum in the next five years. She's never suggesting worn in the next few months.

It does appear that that is something of a vaccine effect evident in the outcomes for the elderly. When we're counting infections and deaths.

But you're also living this pandemic. How do you reconcile the numbers. On your spreadsheets. With just the human toll of the crisis outside your window look at a particular city and allocated death toll for a particular day.

"They had to kind of manufacture something that would allow the dog to use its locomotion to constantly turn this bit So basically, it was a hollow wheel just like a hamster wheel. With, an axle connected to it and that would. Turn the chain or strings attached to the spirit and keep rotating at a steady pace as the dog would run. Just like a hamster wheel, the spit would turn and. They were able to locate the device away from the actual spit to keep the dogs from from getting too hot which you gotta wonder why they didn't figure that out for the kids maybe that would have kept him from passing out constantly seems like they gave the dogs a lot more. Attention and care than they did these children. Yeah. Yeah. And maybe if and being optimistic, I could say that it's a lesson learned from their first time out the gate with this abusive practice but maybe like many people they just. Liked dogs more than they like humans. SORTA like the Nazis and horses, right right. Like the Nazis in horses the dogs had a number of uses but they also had almost link workers rights. I'm not sure how to say it. They had Sundays off and and they also you know when they were done with kitchen duty they were given a another job they were trained to sit on their owner's feet to keep them warm in manor houses and castles which are famously drafty I'm sorry I'm not trying to harp on this too much but it's crazy. They gave the dog Sunday's off and the children were. Round the clock year round I mean I. Only assume it wasn't something that we came across what days did the kids get off didn't seem like they did really bizarre and interesting So let's talk a little bit more about the actual breed we talked about a name that was given to what was it been Kanus Vert vertiginous. Yeah exactly this was. Much like dachshunds with their short legs and long kind of slender bodies. Were bred for a particular type of hunting initially in in Germany. That's true. The British dog breeders were looking for specific vacations had to be dog that was small enough to fit in a wheel Irish Wolf Hound wouldn't fit the bill. You know they had to be super strong. They had to be energetic and they couldn't be dummies because you had to be able to train them to do some specific things and they definitely didn't want them to talk back like those Pesky animal appliances in the flintstones or have hands like those pesky children that so. According to the Kennel Club in London. The. First mention of them occurs in fifteen, seventy, six in the first book on dogs ever written is the book. Of. English dogs by John Chaos he said that they so diligently look to their business that no drudge nor scully can do the feet more cunningly drudge and scullions being names for kitchen staff at the time. And we say it's other Latin name yet. The Vernet Aperture Kerr. What's that mean? It's just essentially like kitchen dog or cooking dog. If I'm not mistaken I love the idea of Kerr. That's sort of a term of abuse in old timey one like you Kerr, you've villainous Kerr which I guess is a dog I didn't really realize that until looking into the research for this episode But yeah, I mean it is a good example I was talking about dachshunds being bred specifically for hunting. It was for hunting specific types of small game like. Which I thought we would do for You ben and other types of rodents and smaller things they wanted to be lower to the ground. So they could like we wiggling to some of the smaller spaces that those creatures would go and it's a the the spit dog. According to this book. The English dogs by John. Chaos was a really good example of breeding an animal for a specific purpose and to be honest they have a little bit of a spotty history. We've been very nice to the kitchen staff. These dogs were well known in Contemporary Society. people wrote about them. Shakespeare has a dog mentioned in the comedy of errors and the hard truth of it is that these dogs did not have a good life, right? Like, yes they didn't work on Sundays but the kitchen staff usually got Sundays off. Yes. They got to hang out with their owner and keep their feet warm and that's you know a gives us all the all the cute fuzzy feels. But we have to remember that these were not ornamental pets these dogs with a function and they were treated pretty roughly. Yeah and it wasn't until the animal cruelty groups like the ASPCA or making society for prevention of Cruelty to animals. started kind of taking notice of you know animal rights. The idea of animal rights was not a thing like it was really like animals were here for us and we would do with as we as we pleased But this gentleman Stephen L. Zaghawa Hausky with the ASPCA talks about the history of these spit dogs and says the they were so low on the social order that nobody took. Account. Of them which kind of leaves the history a little bit open ended, and then they're actually is if I'm not mistaken a taxidermied turned spit dog on display at the Abergavenny Museum in Wales, the dog's name is whiskey by the way and this animal is described by Stanley. Coren wrote a book called pawprints on history as having a very similar body shape to Basset Hound with the head of a pit bull. So we're sort of using our imaginations here and thinking about what these dogs might have looked like I. Think we're both on the same page and picturing a Dachshund type situation a Basset Hound has also similarly kind of longer. With with. Stumped legs, but it does seem to be a breed. We wouldn't really see these days and you know it's interesting how breeds kind of fall in and out of favor, and if you don't keep breeding them, then they're gonNA eventually like you get die out and obviously there are hundreds and hundreds of breeds of dogs throughout the world bread for very specific reasons, and here's few examples from this cool medium article that. We read turns bit dogs, the original rotisserie machines for example, Jack Russell terriers were bred to hunt rats and border collies were bred for herding sheep and Greyhounds were sleek and quick. So they can hunt Hares and then Alsatians were guard dogs. So they were all these very specifically bred characteristics turn spit dogs really really did have a rough life I mean they were denied the most basic necessities that. You think of in terms of like a dog dogs overheat really quickly they need a lot of water to stay hydrated and to be healthy, and apparently these spit turn dogs would work in teams where they would there be like one working and run its little heart out on the wheel, and then when that one overheated essentially it would be replaced by another dog and they would trade every couple of. Hours and even though they did try to locate the wheel farther away from the spit than it would have been with the early examples with the kids turning it. So close to the actual spit because it was just a chain that was directly on it it still was very, very hot and a lot of his dry heat would hit the dogs and they weren't getting water so they would really kind of..

"Think it's not fully settled whether the turns dog was a breed of dog, or was in large part, maybe sort of breed of dog, or just was was a class of types of dogs. Yeah, like we might be in that area where it was on its way in some regions towards becoming a breed, but ultimately and thankfully the practice does go away. There is one known taxidermied turns bit dog at the. Abergavenny Museum in Wales. It's name whiskey. I've included a picture for you here, Robert I mean it's a small dog with short kind of Binter, crooked legs, and it is a cute dog. I could see a dog like this you know. Earning its way out of the wheel, and into the hearts of Queen. Now be writes. That turns big. Dogs were used in America in the nineteenth century, and the you had an early animal rights advocate by the name of Henry Bergh, who lobbied against there use any ultimately succeeded in bringing some shame to the practice, but with limited consequences. Yeah, there were there were at least some cases where he like identified turns bit dogs. That were being used in some cities as like as where there was obvious cruelty, any like took the people who were who own the dogs to court. Yeah, and he would make surprise visits and Kachins to catch the dogs and their use, and reportedly in be writes in some cases. They found that the. The dogs have been replaced by young black children. This horrible Cummings writes about that, too that in some cases when the dogs were removed, that human children were used in the role, especially black children, and that Berg tried to to advocate on behalf of children who were put through this cruelty to in some cases, arguing that like will children not be given the same rights as an animal. Yeah, thankfully, however, even though we we started with children, and then dogs into the picture then giessen picture. Thankfully, going back to children is not the change that ultimately brought the end of the turns. Bit Doc, right just as dogs replaced some human turns bits. Bits early on automotive power ultimately replaced the majority of dogs and and it started not the majority, but it started somewhat as early as the sixteenth century, and would just go on to replace dogs more and more for spit, turning as time went on so bond in rights that Leonardo Da. Vinci of course invented an automatic spit, turning device that was called a smoke Jack, and it worked sort of on the principle of a windmill, except inside a chimney, so smoke in hot air, rising from the fireplace up into the chimney would rotate a turbine with several blades, and the turbine driven by the smoke in the rising gases would generate rotational energy that. That could transferred by belt or chain to the roasting spit. Yeah, it's a clever clever invention. They would later see some use one of the drawbacks to it. Of course. Is that you do have to? You have to feed a lot of fuel to the fire. You have to keep the fire up. You have to keep that updraft powerful enough to turn the machinery. Yeah, there were several problems with the smoke Jack Model the it was improved upon incrementally in later decades after DAVINCI's invention of it abundance in notes that records indicate smoke jacks were in use in England. During the time of Samuel, peeps, who was an English naval administrator and prolific dire. Journals give us a window into much about what English life was like at the time, which was like sixteen, thirty, three to seventeen three, but even these later improved models of smoke jacks were still dirty. They were unreliable and yeah. They required a very hot fire, and a lot of you know putting awful so a lot of fuel essentially to get them spinning the right rate, but even with those limitations they could do the work of a lot of dogs. Bond Sin writes quote in the early nineteenth century, low thir- Castle near. Penrith had a particularly advanced smoke jack drew driving eight horizontal and vertical spits, saving the Labor of not less than twelve turns, bit dogs, but another automated. Automated Solution and I think the one that ultimately really replaced turns bit. Dogs was also in existence by the sixteenth century, and this was the clock. Jack sometimes called the the meat. Jack had other names as well. Yeah, clock Jacks used a suspended weight or a spring that you would wind up at the beginning of the cooking process to store potential energy that would slowly be released with a steady rotation mechanism, and it worked much better than any of the other known methods, yeah, basically consisted of a weight suspended from a cord and wound around a cylinder, the weight slowly descended the power, transferred through a series of cogs and pulleys, and powered one or even multiple spits. Sometimes there is even a bell included, which would ring when it stopped when the food was done even. So some commentators have likened it to a modern microwave in that respect. Oh, that's interesting, but did have popcorn function. I bet not. So. You might be asking the question. Wait a second if clock checks existed since the sixteenth century. As long as smoke, Jackson almost as long as the turns bit dogs, like why were inferior turn spit engine such as dogs or smoke jacker whatever used at all in the main answer? Here is cost clock Jacks especially early on were expensive. They these were mechanisms that had intricate clockwork issue designs, which were too expensive for standard homes and ends, but I think as time went on. As they became cheaper to produce or mass-produce, you could get them cheaper and more people would replace their turns bit dogs with an automatic system like o'clock Jack, and indeed be points out that by around seventeen forty eight. The meet Jack was just praised as a method to keep the meat turning. And you actually would find them in nearly half of English households. And that's all households, not just the rich ones, but they're just all English households. The these culinary robots says because them. They did the job. They didn't invoke even a tinge of shame. And it wouldn't run off in high like it turns fit dog and we know this when we know that it was an in half of all households based on probate inventories of the deceased. So this would be where you know they go. They had records of what we're in the households of people who had died, and so they knew like this house had had a headache lock Jack this. House had clock, Jack, and ultimately like half of England had. Had Clock Jack in their house, thus driving away the necessity of the turn, spit dog, so you would hope that that what would have happened historically is that there was a great awakening of people turning away from animal cruelty, inhuman cruelty for these these biologically powered Spitz and saying hey, there's a better way, but no, it sounds like. Probably it was more like technology and economics played the main role in replacing dogs and humans to turn spits. And, so you you, you had a number of these gadgets came into play, not only the clockwork Jack but also the smoke Jack, which earlier had become the design to become better Still there are certain design problems with it, but you saw them implemented other English inventors experimented with steam water clockwork. Even more elaborate clockwork wonders. You spit roasting. Meat was just such a central part of the English way of life. That, it attracted the sort of. Innovation that we see now and things like coffee preparation. Yeah, like he's to have their coffee. And so you see so many inlets varieties of ways to make a cup of coffee, and still continue to see new innovations in coffee, percolation, design, right, and then of course once electricity came along I think that was a huge game. Changer right now rotisseries pretty much. All of them are going to be electrically powered right in the other big factor to be points out. Is that With with all these jacks, we had a an increasingly high tech invention based around rather old cooking methodology, the like open hearth, cooking, cooking, something, big open fireplace, but then this went out of style during the mid nineteenth century, and so did the Meat Jack and it's related. Meet turning robots. Though forces to spit roasting itself of course did not go away. spiriting itself lives on as the do various mechanical rotisseries. You can buy them for your backyard grill. You can buy you. Can you.

"Farm will be there for this stage and every stage after like a good neighbor state farm. Is there all right? We're back all right. Think we should talk a bit about the the legacy of the turns bit dog in English literature because references to them show up in English literature. Roughly from like the fifteen hundreds when the turns bit dog I became popular Roughly to the eighteen hundreds it kind of cuts off after in the twentieth century. And it makes sense right because if especially in in in Britain if this was something that was to be found in pretty much every household or a lot of households. Anyway it would be a common Becoming frame of reference. It'd be a combination of perhaps a metaphor for expressing something about the game condition. And so it might not surprise you that since it goes back to the fifteen hundreds it shows up in Shakespeare in Shakespeare's comedy of errors Dromey O of Syracuse. Says I amazed ran from her as a witch and I think if my breast had not been made a faith in my heart of steel she had transformed me into occur tale dog and made me turn in the wheel So curtain dog there Refers I think to the docking of the tail in curtailed like cut off and that seems to have something to do with the social class or status or value of the dogs like the Led the more valuable breeds that would would have belonged to rich people. I think were more likely to have the full tale whereas the detail was curtailed in breeds that were maybe for working like in the kitchen on. That's where we get the word curtail. Yes Oh my goodness all right. I am all sorts of discoveries are taking place for the stopping. Well actually. I want to go back. I'm not sure that's where the word curtail that means. Cut Short right like. Yeah but let's just say that is where worrisome But by Brian Cummings account usually a curtail dog in Shakespearean references is a reference to turn spit dog. There's another quote in the merry wives of Windsor quote. Hope curdle dog in some affairs and Cummins links this to the futility of hope in some cases like to the futility of the work in the turns bit wheel and he just goes on and on another one is that some authors have even alleged that the saying every dog has its day comes from the turn. Spit Dog Shen I think this is not proven. I can't find strong. Evidence linking the saying to the roasting spit but the idea is that since many kitchens would have two dogs in some cases they would trade off every other day. So you'd have a day where you work in the wheel and then you'd have a day of rest and from what I can tell this. English expression does probably show up during the Tudor period in the fifteen hundreds which is also the time wind turns bit dog. Wheels became common in England but again I can't prove that's where the phrase comes from interesting. Yeah it's like there's this handy example of cruelty right and every household and of course it makes way into language or in this case potentially yeah. Unfortunately it's like every reference to it in English literature is to the fact that it is wretched work that it's something you don't want to have to do that. It's hard that it can be cruel in fact even not just Not just hard-working cruel but SISYPHEAN literally because bondage and also quotes a quote a rare collection of poems entitled Norfolk Drawl Arri. And here's the quote. This I confess. He goes around around a hundred times and never touch the ground and in the middle circle of the air. He draws a circle LAK- conjurer with eagerness he still does forward tend like Sisyphus whose journey has no end. Of course is the what Titan is punished by having pushed the rock up the hill and then it rolls back down. Yeah I I don't know if it's a titan you're probably right that yeah but in Greek mythology having to push the boulder up the hill only to have it roll back down again every time somebody who who ticked off a God right after but it's interesting because then why mythology is usually the the handy metaphor to turn to for this period of time. You had replaced sophisticated. Replace Myth because you had the real life cicis installed in your home. That's the epic struggle that everybody can relate to because they've seen one of these in the kitchen And it turns out. We mentioned this earlier but there were other similar dog powered machines in human history for some reason always especially in Wales. I don't know why Wales and western England seem like the epicenter for dog powered machines so you had dogs powered butter churns powered fruit presses dog powered green wheels even water wheels to draw water from a well and then later. I was reading about how in England in the United States Refu- examples of dog powered printing presses. Wow I mean it really sounds almost getting into the room of dog punk. Yeah well that could be a great like whole family. Plus Dog Halloween costumes. Some kind of dog punk outfit actually. That's much do this. You could have a scenario where it's like a dog punk world but of course the dogs are heroes and they of course escape and rebel sort of like dog punk meets. Rats of Nimh basically writes itself. Yeah so we talked before about the question of whether the turn spit dog was actually a breed of dog. There's been a lot of speculation about which dog breeds most resemble or most closely related to the turn. Spit Dog According to bond descend the Dachshund and the Basset Hound have been proposed but Bothersome thinks these are bad candidates. Maybe better candidates for relations are the Glenn of Emol terrier which greatly resembles historical roope reports of the turns bit dogs though has a more terrier like head and this wasn't but this was also a dog that was definitely used to hunt vermin. Yes so we're getting into that area to where perhaps this is a dog that had to do a real like we have these rat catcher dogs. I need something to turn this wheel. Go grab one of those rat. Catcher dogs throwing the wheel. Yeah I think that's highly plausible especially early on you know. And maybe they were bred more for wheel duties as time went on another bid Better candidate also is. Apparently the Welsh Corgi the corgis which is ironic because of the famous Welsh Corgi Corgis who are royal companions at the castles of the British monarchy. Which might sort of fit with the story of the Nineteenth Century Queen Victoria taking interns dogs as pets? Oh I mean because perhaps you end up with another selective breeding situation. The cutest of the turns bit dogs are taken in by the Queen. And you get you corgis. I can see it though. I don't know how far back Corgis go. That may not actually match up with the the corgi lineage. Empire perhaps we'll hear from corgi breeders right So Cummins ultimately argues that given all of the disparate reports about size appearance coat and so forth the turns bit dog In his mind probably was not a distinct breed of dog but rather was any small dog that could be trained to turn the wheel though he believes they were mostly derived from terrier breeds. So we've got these different. I think it's not fully settled. Whether the turns dog was a breed of dog or was in large part maybe sort of breed of dog or just was was a class of types of dogs. Yeah like we might be in that area where it was on its way in some regions towards becoming a breed but ultimately and thankfully the practice does go away. There is one known taxidermied. Turns bit dog at the Abergavenny Museum in Wales. It's named Whiskey. I've included a picture for you here. Robert I mean it's a small dog with short kind of binter crooked legs and it is a cute dog. I could see a dog like this You know earning its way out of the wheel and into the hearts of Queen. Now be writes that turns big dogs were used in. America in the nineteenth century and in you had an early. Animal rights advocate by the name of Henry. Bergh who lobbied against there use any ultimately succeeded in bringing some shame to the practice but with limited consequences. Yeah there were. There were at least some cases where he like identified turns bit dogs that were being used in some cities as like as where there was obvious cruelty any like took the people who were who own the dogs to court. Yeah and he would make surprise visits and Kachins to catch the dogs and their use and reportedly In be writes in some cases. They found that the dogs have been replaced by young black children. This horrible Cummings writes about that too that in some cases when the dogs were removed That human children were used in the role especially black children and that Berg tried to To advocate on behalf of children who were put through this cruelty to in some cases arguing that like will children not be given the same rights as an animal yeah thankfully however even though we we started with children and then dogs enter the picture then giessen picture thankfully going back to children is not the change that ultimately brought the end of the turns. Bit Doc right Just as dogs replaced some human turns bits early. On automotive power ultimately replaced the majority of dogs And and it started not the majority but it started somewhat as early as the sixteenth century. And would just go on to replace dogs more and more for spit turning as time went on so bond in rights that Leonardo Davinci of course invented an automatic spit turning device. That was called a smoke. Jack and it worked sort of on the principle of a windmill except inside a chimney so smoke in hot air rising from the fireplace up into the chimney would rotate a turbine with several blades and the turbine driven by the smoke in the rising gases would generate rotational energy. That could transferred by belt or chain to the roasting spit. Yeah it's a clever clever invention. They would later. See some use. One of the drawbacks to it. Of course is that you do have to. You have to feed a lot of fuel to the fire. You have to keep the fire up. You have to keep that updraft powerful enough to turn the machinery. Yeah there were several problems with the smoke Jack Model The it was improved upon incrementally in later decades after DAVINCI's invention of it Bond us in notes that records indicate smoke. Jacks were in use in England during the time of Samuel peeps who was an English naval administrator and prolific dire journals. Give us a window into much about what English life was like at the time which was like sixteen thirty three to seventeen three but even these later improved models of smoke. Jacks were still dirty. They were unreliable and yet they required a very hot fire and a lot of you know putting awful so a lot of fuel essentially to get them spinning the right rate but even with those limitations they could do the work of a lot of dogs. Bonding writes quote in the early Nineteenth Century. Low thir- Castle near Penrith had a particularly advanced smoke. Jack drew driving eight horizontal and four vertical spits saving the Labor of not less than twelve turns spit dogs but another automated solution and I think the one that ultimately really replaced turns. Bit Dogs was also in existence by the sixteenth century. And this was the clock. Jack sometimes called the the Meat Jack Had other names as well. Yeah Clock Jacks used a suspended weight or a spring that you would wind up at the beginning of the cooking process to store potential energy that would slowly be released with a steady rotation mechanism and it worked much better than any of the other known methods. Yeah basically consisted of a weight suspended from a cord and wound around a cylinder. The weight slowly descended the power transferred through a series of cogs and pulleys and powered one or even multiple spits. Sometimes there is even a bell included. Which would ring when it stopped when the food was done even so some commentators have likened it to a modern microwave in that respect. Oh that's interesting but did have popcorn function no it. Didn't I bet not so? You might be asking the question. Wait a second. If clock checks existed since the sixteenth century as long as smoke Jackson almost as long as the turns bit dogs like why were inferior. Turn spit engine such as dogs or smoke jacker. Whatever used at all in the main answer here is cost clock. Jacks especially early on were expensive. They these were mechanisms that had intricate clockwork issue designs which were too expensive for standard homes and ends but I think as time went on as they became cheaper to produce or mass-produce.

"Maybe better candidates for relations are the Glenn of Emol terrier which greatly resembles historical root reports the turns bit dogs though. Though has a more terrier like head. And this wasn't, but this was also a dog that was definitely used to hunt vermin. Yes, so we're getting into that area to where perhaps this is a dog that had to do a rule like we have these rat catcher dogs i. need something to turn this wheel. Go grab one of those rat catcher dogs throwing the wheel Isaac. That's. That's highly plausible. Especially early on, and maybe they were bred more for wheel duties as time went on another bit better. Candidate also is apparently the Welsh Corgi the Corgis, which is ironic because of the famous Welsh Corgi Corgis. Who are royal companions at the castles of the British monarchy, which might sort of fit with the story of the nineteenth. Century Queen Victoria taking. Bit Dogs as pets. Oh, I mean, because perhaps you end up with another breeding situation. The cutest of the turns dogs are taken in by the Queen and you get you get corgis. I can see it though I don't know how far back Corgis go. Every day that may not actually match up with the the corgi lineage. Perhaps we'll hear from corky breeders. Right so cummins ultimately argues that given all of the disparate reports about size, appearance coat, and so forth that the turns bit dog in his mind, probably was not a distinct breed of dog, but rather was any small dog that could be trained to turn the wheel, though he believes they were mostly derived from terrier breeds, so we've got these different I. think it's not fully settled whether the turns bit dog was a breed of dog or was in. Large part, maybe sort of breed of dog, or just was was a class of types of dogs. Yeah, we might be in that area where it was on its way in some regions towards becoming a breed, but ultimately and thankfully the practice does go away. There is one known taxidermied turns bit dog at the at Abergavenny Museum in Wales. It's a named Whiskey I've included a picture for you all, get here Robert I mean it's a small dog with short kind of Binter, crooked legs, and it is a cute dog. I could see a dog like this you know. Earning its way out of the wheel, and into the hearts of a queen. Now be writes. That turns bit.

"At Gotti was one of Lisa's eager to close friends but now many in the community believed he may have killed her. Did you you have anything to do with Lisa's death absolutely not but ed says he understands why the police had to look at him in those early days after Lisa was killed. I mean that's what the police have to do. And and they had to talk to all of us. I mean you gotTa start somewhere and I was more than happy to talk to him. Tell him anything. I could tell them while. Ed was cooperating grading with police. The rumor mill went into overdrive one of the rumors. That persistent was that you were in a relationship with Blair and that Lisa Sakata you together and so you had to get rid of her. What's your reaction to the reaction is ridiculous? It's a rumer and that's all I'm going to say it's even ridiculous. Even address that the Gotti family name was well known in town at Father. Ed Senior was not just the owner and namesake of the family's restaurant he was also a retired Aga- one police detective and prominent member of the community says his daughter Shelly. My father was on the town. Council has a park named after him. He did a lot for this town so I think it was an easy target. Easy name to remember. The name was known in town and then it just spread it just snowballs no balls it out so I think I really think that's. That's what happened. Shelly says the rumors about her brother. Were hard to ignore particularly whenever someone called the restaurant to threaten confronted him. We're GONNA EG his car you know. Why did he do this? And what's the frustrating part is. You can't stop it. You can't stop it and they didn't even have social NYDIA. I don't know how it went around that fast. Making it even more frustrating says Shelly is that she knew it was impossible for her brother. Ed To have killed Lisa. Where was your brother that night he was here working with me and a whole crew of people never left never disappeared time? No actually not. He was here working with all of us. There's plenty of witnesses. Not only did ED seem to have a solid alibi. He also had the Zieger support. So how'd you feel when his name started emerging in public as a person who may have killed Lisa. I was angry three with people who are making the comments very angry. Because I knew he'd never did it but the chorus of accusations against him Kim was almost deafening says. Detective macy when you have everyone beating the drum in the town that this guy did it. You can't ignore that. No we wouldn't until we were sure that he had no involvement in. They had to follow up on information that his truck was similar to a suspicious vehicle. Seen by Witnesses and of course they had to ask him for. DNA You took a DNA sample from at Burgundy. Was it a match. No it was negative and his father who I knew very well at senior had come up and shut Wayne kept you. Just go forward and let the community know that Ed didn't and do it and I told Ed you can't do that. The Policy Department is not to admit to who your people of interest are period because at some later date something happened and you have to change story they had to consider whether Ed might have had an accomplice or that evidence could surface implicating him later. He wasn't it crossed off the list. But it was so frustrating. When you're in that position and they're spending the time on you and you're thinking to yourself this guys get away but for those who thought it was was ed who was getting away with Lisa's murder? The rumors turned into conspiracy theories show many people were calling for Magwar stating that. It was Abergavenny and that it was because his father which police chief which he wasn't that we were hiding it. The DAD was a detective. He would detective. And we're going to cover enough because somebody's relationship with somebody on. The police. Department is a direct and serious allegation against you all. That were the Unicorn Warren to think that anybody would do that. Many in Agawam continue to believe at Borghetti was involved in Lisa's murder but detectives had to move on. They had other tips to follow other leads to pursue hoping that one of them would reveal. Lisa's.
