How Canary Speech Differs From Traditional Word-Based Models

"Our technology compared compared to historic approach. Historically, it began with the evaluation of word based things, classic example of the British novelist Agatha Christie and her plight through Alzheimer's, it's nice if you have 40 years of data to do analysis on, but it's not a practical way of approaching this. And word based analysis is difficult to control for education level, use of words, multiple languages across nations, not the withstanding various use of language throughout a single nation alone. So it's, while ASR is a nice, solid stable dataset, it's not a very useful dataset for doing analysis on things like anxiety stress depression. It's roughly practical for Alzheimer's, but even there it's very difficult to control. Canary speeches approach was to use a primary data layer, which is in fact used for ASR and NLP. But we use the primary data layer nearly exclusively. And from those features and biomarkers, we construct and train models, algorithms, which are independent, both language and other elements. Fundamentally how the central nervous system dries the creation of speech. And that allows us then to use a very rich set of data in a minute, hundreds of thousands of data points are. Used. We extract features in real time compare that to previous models and model sets that we have used. And today we're doing that in a. Newly launched system that utilizes the highest level of security available. We recently completed an external audit for penetration, vulnerability cysts and are finishing up soc two type one in the next

"Play. Interestingly anytime that happened that way around mary. West mccart was christie's non-crime pseudonym. I've done a whole episode about the books that she wrote under this name. If you're interested just scroll back in your podcast app to find it. Starting with giant's bread in nineteen thirty she produced six novels that were credited to the pseudonym that sometimes get categorized as romance. But which. I think a best described as domestic drama. That's the same style that she employed for this play. A daughter's a daughter which julius rates as one of his absolute favorites of us and which he thinks hints at what her play writing career could have looked like if she had had no pre existing obligations as crime. Writer is a really accomplish. Play very likely turns writing. Play that a lot of the critics who were seeing of course for the first time. Come into the factor in it was right up there when rattigan say if if she hadn't been sort of strong-armed by publishes and produces into making career as a crime novelist in a detective and trying playwright. Her career. Trajectory agree as a playwright might have been very different. Because i want something like a is daughters. Shows is a frame of reference But he's very separate during outside of the crime. Genre is extraordinary domestic drama and encourage anyone who gets a chance to see any potential while awareness of what's like this is relatively low among theater producers. There is still interest in producing christie's plays almost fifty years after her death. So the big appetite still for. I think her key works. Though right presented the western premiere of the daughter a few years back that it only ever had one week of performances visceral bath in the nineteen fifties. So yeah people are still very very interested. I mean unfortunately what people tend to want to do is to meet new adaptations of the novels now or to readopt the place. But i do encourage producers to look at the original work. Julius has been involved in several staged readings like the one of the stranger that will take place at the international agatha christie festival next month in one case a performance of a play called the lie led to a commission to adopt into a radio play. That was ad for the first time in august. Twenty twenty given his experience in bringing these previously unknown place to the stage. I was curious to know whether they stood up for a modern audience as she wrote them or if modifications were needed to christie's scripts if we go back to the original scripts as she originally wrote them. They might stand up today. Of course you know what you can't really do is update them because if you introduced a mobile phone that storyline with the mouse trap it wouldn't work and certainly with muslim men were none. So it's a bit like noel coward. Plays they work very much if you stay them in their time early allen eight boom plays and now being stages period pieces which were very very well because you you can understand you can understand the mousetrap if it set in the nineteen fifties you can understand witness for the prosecution if it said in the nineteen fifties. There's no point really. In updating annul cannot play anymore than there is an agatha christie play. Maybe maybe hundreds of years time won't be updating shakespeare. spefically well updated. But i think it needs to be more time elapsed in real time before.

Almost from the start of agatha christie's literary career people have been trying to protest stories on the stage in nineteen twenty. Seven a touring actor manager named lionel butte acquired the rights to produce a play based on her nineteen twenty six novel. The murder of roger ackroyd retitled alibi. This adaptation eventually opened at the prince of wales theatre on the fifteenth of may nineteen twenty eight. Having been written by michael morton and directed by gerald demaria. Christie have disliked many of morton's ideas he wanted to make poirot twenty years younger on heartthrob with the ladies and she resented having all the people allowed to alter her story still overall. She enjoyed the process of seeing her work. Make it to the stage and vowed to herself next time. However it is the existence of alibi and the many other adaptations of christie's work for the stage. That was not written by her. Julia says that helps to muddy the waters around the extent of her theatrical achievements. of course the whole thing was a bit confused by the fact that other people were adopting her books. Before i perform play of the own and of course after she became a playwright in her in right and i think this is one of the reasons why there's some confusion i think if people see a play by christie they assume it's adapted from one of her books by somebody else was in fact she wrote several places and many of the place you rent. We're actually original plays adaptations of novels. She began writing. What would become her own fast. Play black coffee. The year after alibi premiered. It's an original story. Not based on any previous work and in what would become an unusual decision for it has accused paro as it central character surprisingly when she adapted for novo. She always cuts the character of poorer. Because of her i i play was black. Coffee which was an original play. An original poorest story what she went find as noble ocean story anywhere she tended to dislike actors very flamboyant portrayals of the character toward the actors playing poirot who is distracted from the storyline of the of the current which she was interested in time and time again when turning some of her best known horror stories like death on the nile the hollow and appointment with death into place kristie reorganized them so that her famous belgian detective was nowhere to be seen while this might sound like a bizarre decision from a marketing point of view who cuts the most famous asset from a new adaptation. It was the right one to make from a theatrical standpoint. As julius explains the problem is she is she is actually correct when you think about having a star detective onstage pools focus in an extraordinary way because in a novel and even in the film or on on tv on film and tv the director can cut away from perot. Even if he's in the room or he can focus the camera so that it's something that perot is looking at whereas in the theater if prize onstage you're looking at poirot the minute bara walks on the stage whether it suchet robert powell jason. Everybody just looks at that performance person whereas what they should be looking at is what somebody else is doing in in the corner. The perot is looking at so distracts from the process of the audience. Being able to piece together the the story line with focused on the wrong thing and she realized that. So i didn't honestly think is a great deal to begin by reintroducing. It's a good rule of thumb at johnny. If you find yourself watching a so-called agatha christie play and it styles hercule poirot but isn't black coffee you can be fairly sure that she didn't write it. Although some of the theatrical successes came with adaptations of existing novels and short stories plenty were original plots and some of her plays weren't even in the crime thriller genre at all jeers original plays nights spider's web like verdict like daughter's daughter which because they're not adapted from anything are as as exercises in playwright in probably the most satisfactory over as a dramatist. I mean she. She very much liked verdict. Which was which was actually a flop but in many ways one of them as to companies plays and perhaps domestic companies piece of play. Writing is a door to door to which of course is what when we call him a merry west mccaw book and non crime fiction work which people assume as adapted from her mary west novel of the same title but in fact the book was adapted from the.

"Agatha christie's career as a playwright isn't a secret of course if you happen to be in central london and walked through the west end. You'll pass at least one theater. Currently showing one of her place. One of her works holds the record for the longest run ever of a west end play but overall it's just that her fame and global reach is a novelist has mostly eclipsed her reputation in the theater if you look closely at her achievements though it becomes clear both that she was a successful playwright separately to how other writing work and that she cared very deeply about this facet of her career. She's undoubtedly and inaugur ably the most successful female playwright of all time and nobody has yet challenge that statement. This is julius. Green a theater producer and the author of agatha christie alive in theater this book which was first published in twenty. Fifteen is a brilliant comprehensive reappraisal of christie's theatrical career as a result of all the research he did around this subject. Julius came to some pretty firm conclusions about where agatha christie. The playwright should sit in the history of twentieth century. British theatre for instance. She's the only woman ever to have had three plays running in the west and simultaneously. One of those is the most trump one was witness for the prosecution was spider's web. Indeed writing plays with something agatha had wanted to do her whole life long before the idea of writing. Detective novels came along. Although her ambitions were only realized well after she had established herself as mystery novelist. She always wanted to be a playwright. She wrote plays an early age from a teenager. She started writing plays but her first performed play was in nineteen thirty when she was forty years old. So in relatively late in life as a writer she became a playwright success as a playwright. Is jim in the nineteen fifties when she was sixty so as an older woman. She was found success as a playwright. Agatha christie's work for the theatre is about half original plays and half her own adaptations of novels and short stories. She wrote some thirty plays Some linked some one act nor all of them were performed in her lifetime but a substantial number were. She started out with a couple of works. That i think she done. Listeners will find a little familiar. The first black coffee was an original play. Starring one hook. you'll paro i performed. Play was a coffee which was staging ninety thirty. The embassy veteran swiss cottage which is now the central school of speech and drama. There was quite a gap before her second play was produced which is will notice and then there were which was a huge success during the war and became a big wartime hit almost morale-boosting exercise inadvertently think struck a real code with audiences in water brin and that became her first broadway as well in the course of his research. Julius actually found a number of never before seen kristie plays in her family's archive and he's presenting staged reading one of these. The stranger at the international agatha christie festival in talkie in a few weeks time should any listeners. Feel curious to see some of her work. Once you've listened to this episode because christie was so popular for her novels and short stories even when people do know a bit about a work in the theater they tend to assume that she wasn't actually the one putting in the work on her place although it was her name on them in the end this couldn't be further from the truth. Julia says all of our stage was hugely. Invested in She spent a little time talking with produces about changes that they wanted. She was in rehearsals. Not as the writer making changes involved in the casting process. She was extremely hands on as a writer and as i say totally invested in the process. She thoroughly enjoyed not only what she in constant correspondence throughout her life with longtime producer. Peter saunders. She personally rated her theatrical work. The most highly of anything she ever did. She thoroughly enjoyed a get success. And you know. She's on record as saying that her proudest achievement as really to was a witness for the prosecution the play she always so writing noble as a way to pay the bills and pay the tax bills. Doubt save out to the fans of. It's possible to tell how much the theater montecristi julius allergies. If you look at the extent to which her colleagues there became part of her personal social life issues legendarily shy as a person but she really enjoyed the company of theatrical people and she writes delightfully about an how during the war in all. They're worried about is how they gonna wear to go in the show that night and she found the perspective of the people very refreshing partly because it was self obsessed i think because said it'll frame of reference with the realities of what we're what was going on that. Some of our best friends might yet. To larry snow than he played poirot on a number of the asians or that she didn't like his performance borrow.

"So i think agatha does characterization brilliantly. She does in her own. Way is usually the case in an agatha christie novel. What takes up most of the page space. Looks like it's plots if you just sort of flick through you might say a compensation about primary woman's mobile saying so where were you on the night of whatever and it looks like the plot is happening. But that doesn't mean that characterization is not well handled in her books. A good analogy. I think is the paintings of ls lowry. You know those sort of matchstick men so if someone were to criticize lowry for not paying people properly in my opinion that would be silly. You know you. Don't look larry paintings and go oh he called depict people just because he doesn't depict them in the way that gains bread depicted the so. I think personally agatha christie conveys character and all kinds of layers knowledge and wisdom about human nature extremely. Well she just does it in a particular christie ish way. What if the supposed failings of christie's writing such as flat characters in less than sparkling dialogue while actually all part of how she made her lauded plots so good and so you know people talk about her character's sometimes being two dimensional or some people say. Oh yeah character very two-dimensional but that is actually a necessity of the genre because we say the characters initially as they present to out protagonists store detective. And of course that presenting is way because one of them is going to turn out to be hiding the secret than the mudra others of them are going to turn out to be hiding the secret that they're jewel thief for example of jewel thieves running around and the ones who aren't hiding anything sort of criminal might be hiding something else something emotional and so for murder mystery to work in the best way that it possibly can. The characters needs to be presenting..

"You're listening to this podcast. I feel fairly confident. In saying that you think the christie wrote some good books there's a high probability that you decided to listen to me talking about detective fiction because you have at some point enjoyed a novel by the so called queen of crying but just because we enjoy her. Fiction doesn't necessarily mean agatha christie deserves to be crowned queen of the literary pantheon. in fact it's become a commonplace to say that although christie's plots second to none a pros and dialogue leaves a lot to be desired. Leaden humdrum repetitive samy. These are all words. I've heard used to describe it. I don't want to just acquiesce to the prevailing view on this though which is why today i'm going to investigate with agatha christie is really a good writer welcome does she done it. I'm caroline crompton. I've been thinking about this question for a long time as you might imagine but there were two pieces of writing specifically that prompted me to go deeper into the issue now. The first is an article by john. Lanchester titled the case of agatha christie which was published in the london review of books in december twenty eighteen. It's a long essay nearly six thousand words long but the main thing you need to know about it is that from the start. Lanchester sets out his baseline assumption. The agatha christie was not a good writer and that he's not the only person he thinks this it's not as if anyone even her hardest core fans ever makes any claims for christie as a writer per se. He says near the beginning of the article he continues. How prose is flat and functional her characters on a spectrum between types stereotypes and caricatures. So you might well ask what's to like it's worth reading. This in full of course are linked to it in the episode description but suffice to say here that he goes on to find plenty of things to.

I'm jenny kaplan and this is encyclopedia britannica. Today we're talking about the grande dame of the english. Done it. The jk rolling of selling books before there is a jk rolling. Please meet our dreamer of the day. The queen of crime agatha christie agatha was born in eighteen ninety in the seaside town of turkey in devon england. She was the youngest of three children born into an upper middle class home. Acas father frederick was an american stockbroker and her irish-born mother clara took care of the house and her children's early education after her father's sudden death when agatha was eleven. the family's financial situation became more precarious. An agatha was sent to paris to complete her education when she completed finishing school. I get the return to england only to start a months long tour of the middle east with her mother. While traveling agatha tried her hand at writing short stories and an early novel but wasn't able to get anything published. She did however meet her future husband archie christie while in cairo. They got married right before the outbreak of world war one during the war archie was sent to france to fight the germans. We'll get the returned home to england. She worked as a nurse. And then eventually chemist's assistant on the home front as the war raged across the channel agatha started writing detective fiction in her downtime. She'd always loved mystery. Novels particularly the works of wilkie collins and sir arthur conan doyle so it was a natural fit at this first novel. The mysterious affair at styles was published in nineteen twenty. Her debut work introduced the world to the iconic hair kua paro agatha's eccentric and egoistic belgian detective with the little grey cells and a perfectly quaffed moustache from frog. I am a bloody legal. Belgian perot appeared in about twenty five novels and many short stories. The elderly village spinster. Miss jane marple agatha's other iconic detective first appeared in her novel. Murder at the vicarage in one thousand nine thirty agatha's first. Major literary success came with the publication of her novel. The murder of roger ackroyd in nineteen twenty six. It was met with massive international acclaim and became an immediate bestseller. No spoilers but suffice it to say that. The murder of roger. Ackroyd is an ingenious and innovative. Who done it that still manages to amaze that same year nineteen twenty. Six agatha's mother died and her husband requested a divorce in order to marry his mistress. Right after archie asked for the divorce agatha disappeared it was a legendary and frankly very strange incident that agatha never fully explained like the plot of one of her novels. She told her maid that she was taking a drive to newcastle and then vanished leaving her empty car on the side of the road with no plu as to her whereabouts. The public outcry was enormous. The story was highly publicized and the public closely followed updates in the newspapers. It even made the front page of the new york times after several days. Agatha was found registered in a small hotel under the name of her husband's mistress though unlucky in love during her first marriage agatha had much better luck the second time around when she married archaeologist. Max mala win. In nineteen thirty agatha went onto write some seventy five novels that almost always made the bestseller list not to mention quite a few popular volumes of short stories. her works include mystery classics. Like and then there were none murder on the orient express. And why didn't they ask. Agatha also wrote a number of very well received plays her most famous. The mouse trap set a world record for the longest continuous run at one theater. More than twenty one years. How many years would you give the mousetrap yet to prophesy. I will sit. It's coming next year years but never has an acknowledgement of her. Incredible literary career agatha was promoted to dame commander of the order of the british empire in nineteen seventy one dame.

"Today we're talking about the grande dame of the english. Done it. The jk rolling of selling books before there is a jk rolling. Please meet our dreamer of the day. The queen of crime agatha christie agatha was born in eighteen ninety in the seaside town of turkey in devon england. She was the youngest of three children born into an upper middle class home. Acas father frederick was an american stockbroker and her irish-born mother clara took care of the house and her children's early education after her father's sudden death when agatha was eleven. the family's financial situation became more precarious. An agatha was sent to paris to complete her education when she completed finishing school. I get the return to england only to start a months long tour of the middle east with her mother. While traveling agatha tried her hand at writing short stories and an early novel but wasn't able to get anything published. She did however meet her future husband archie christie while in cairo. They got married right before the outbreak of world war one during the war archie was sent to france to fight the germans. We'll get the returned home to england. She worked as a nurse. And then eventually chemist's assistant on the home front as the war raged across the channel agatha started writing detective fiction in her downtime. She'd always loved mystery. Novels particularly the works of wilkie collins and sir arthur conan doyle so it was a natural fit at this first novel. The mysterious affair at styles was published in nineteen twenty. Her debut work introduced the world to the iconic hair kua paro agatha's eccentric and egoistic belgian detective with the little grey cells and a perfectly quaffed moustache from frog. I am a bloody legal. Belgian perot appeared in about twenty five novels and many short stories. The elderly village spinster.

Major literary success came with the publication of her novel. The murder of roger ackroyd in nineteen twenty six. It was met with massive international acclaim and became an immediate bestseller.

"I've also made an audiobook version of it for those who really liked to him talking about the christie. The first hundred people to preorder the map will get the audio book for free and then after that it's available for purchase. This has been a really fun project to work on. And i hope you like it as much as i d. If you've been listening to this show for a while you already know that. I'm someone who really really loves to research. Amassing information is something. I'm pretty good at. I'm arguably better at that than knowing what to do with it once i have it. It won't be any surprise to you then to know that the initial list of places i gathered for them was a lot longer than the ones we could actually fit on it. I think there were forty five entries in the guide. A my initial list had at least double but christie wrote a lot of books stories and plays and she sent a characters to a lot of different places in this episode. I'm going to talk about the sense of place. In christie's books how own favourite locations on some of the trends that i observed while putting together the map. We're also going to look into a surprising mystery. Connected to one of christie's most famous places own i can christie was well traveled woman both by the standard of time and even compared with how much most people move around..

"When you close your eyes and imagine the setting of an agatha christie story what do you see a grand country house perhaps or an idyllic english village complete with its own spinster. Sleuth for all that. The queen of crime is loaded for plots she deserves. Praise fas settings to beyond the more exotic locations featured in books like murder on the orient express and death. on the nile. There is a whole network of interconnected seemingly ordinary places that lie behind christie's fiction it interacts with how biography. To the more you read. How work the more you realize that her character's lives a superimposed upon her own. If you've ever walked into a hotel lobby or a village hall and thought this looks like it should be in an agatha christie novel. Then this.

They said that. Wanda is basically the kind of like the conductor of chaos magic and we'll we'll jump into chaos magic here in a little bit. But what were you saying. Steven i was gonna say. I took the confirmation that that they are heading there without officially giving her the label of the next being like giving their own cute different name. Which is the chaos which or whatever it was using chaos magic but chaos. Magic is something completely different than the next being chaos magic but it's basically chaos. Magic is basically create a had it written down what agatha said She says to the this. Chaos magic wanda that makes you the scarlet witch And then it says. I don't know it's from somewhere else. But is chaos. Magic is the name of magic so powerful that it was thought to be nonexistent. Even by the source where supreme this magic can be manipulated warp and reconstruct the very fabric of existence and reality for the user and it brings total destruction to the cosmos. Yeah rebecca slow. Isn't that i think that's the thing that's not from this episode though that is from like you know like marvel wicky fandom which i mean trip definitely could be something that she's able to do but in this episode the way that agatha described it was basically you can with your yet. She's capable of creating spontaneous creation. She says you have no idea how dangerous you are. You're supposed to be a myth. A being capable of spontaneous creation.

"It's cool anyway so It was a good murder but six years later. conveniently the victims partner girlfriend. But that's a bit weak for somebody who's been with for twenty six years essentially wife pops up and says hey a necessarily good time for me to bother you to solve this mystery. And then because there's fuck all going on in agatha christie's life she's like okay and does it and she's like i'm gonna be gone for a couple of days. Don't worry about me. But evidently she forgets to tell anybody that when she did her kid who was actively not paying attention. Do you think. I would tell my eight year old. Actually i would tell. I would tell my eight year old she. Where where'd your mother go. She's like well. She took the trae. It was eight. Forty five as i recall. So so yeah she. She gets a disguise and she tested out with the mail clerk who who recognizes her generally and she sets up a stupid fucking country house mystery where she invites all of the suspects of the That the wife honestly had already think. The wife did a shitload of detective. Work before agatha christie show could've gone to the cockpit that point right and then like she cleans the house and she makes all the food. I'm like what exactly did agatha christie in this story dot all aristocratic about it. Apparently not aristocratic put on glasses and pretended to be a lawyer assistant clerk. Yeah anyway so she yes. She gathers all the suspects in a house. And then says that They're all there because they are in line for a mysterious inheritance. I'm not really sure what her flipping game plan was like. She's going to figure out who did the murder based on that and then do what. Call him the cops and be like ha ha like. There's no plan it's setup which we frankly it's maybe that's why she was having trouble with her writing. Ooh here thing out of the various things that we this was the aspect that i actually kind of liked in a weird way because a mystery author is not like somebody who's well seasoned at lake private investigation or loving actual murders like. There's a lot learner. There's a lot of logistical b. s. That you half the deal with and like having the cops on speed. Dial aware that you're setting this up might have been a good idea. Go it in saying yeah. And especially since shocker. Shocker somebody is what what and also take at no point. Does anyone mention. And she's now an accessory to this. Jerry could fuck point oops richer anyway so somebody dies during the course of this very inept attempt at at discovering the real fucking cops show up and my favorite character in this entire goddamn movie played by a very cloudy only character the classic british actor. I don't remember like who he is in real life but he's got one of those deep lake northern voices. I'm just melting favorite. And he's just like y'all are dumb. I don't wanna be here. And there's a mystery writer who's missing agatha christie's in the corner going shocked chech- and he's like and so i would arrest all of you have the manpower so fucking rooms and we'll just wait.

I wanted to see how it got put together. You know what. I mean. Like i i wanted to see and i really fallen in love with a writing style and everything i i wanted to sort of see the details of it more and So i really enjoyed it i. It's probably not my favorite one to read though it's really fun to talk about. It's really iconic. But it's maybe a little too mainstream. i don't know it's it's a little more simple reviewing it this week i realized like it's really straightforward whereas a lot of her other books are a bit more social a bit more twists and turns a bit more. Like more time passes more happens. I just really love agatha christie's voice. And so i will pretty much read anything. She rates so Yeah that's my. My main memory of reading. The book was kind of surprised at how different it was from some of her others. So yeah about you. You reread it recently. Yeah i was trying to remember the timeline of all these events. But i'm pretty sure happen was the library near me when i was in high school. They would you use book sales and It was at the age. I couldn't drive or have a car. But i could bikes places on my summer. Getaway was going to the library especially when they have the use book sales in.

Hello, I'm scared of... crime books!

VINTAGE Podcast

Hello, I'm scared of... crime books!

"I think. That's one of the kind of joys and the drawbacks of crime is zone and it's one of the things that annoys me when people always read pieces in the newspapers whereas it's someone making sweeping generalizations about crime this crime that and actually crime is a huge on. R- it's as big as you know it's like saying fiction is this like of course then some parts of fiction it is but crime spans the gamut from really intensely literary right through to kind of pure page-turners an really like terrifying stuff. That is way too hot for me. I'm quite a REC- readers. I chose reader. Yeah yeah that makes for better things stops me is that I'm like kind of scattered Dr. I'm an ex Christian but for some reason I still it kind of affects like how much I really believe in ghosts which is more people and let me say that your Senate Sky Dateline kind of chills and speak. He stuff like there's quite a lot of playing about with that in my books but what I really don't. I cannot read books that are kind of sold. Like people locked in basements or sexual torture or particularly stuff happening to kids. That's just like my my line You know no shade on people who write that. It's we need to explore all areas of human experience in fiction. And that's fine but it's not what I want to spend my evenings immersing myself in you know when you're not familiar with the genre as you say. Sometimes the jackets can similar when they kind of wildly different types of six and it is a bit of a learning curve. I think finding out sort of which bit because I I also have had this stuff about crime fiction through the ages where it's like often this get letting the thing that is scary in the book as a society. We're a little bit afraid of and that can make change throughout the decades but then it also means that on a personal level of the stuff that you're like I'm quite interested in exploring fair and then other stuff that is enjoyable to explore the new stuff. That's definitely I mean. The classic thing that is always talked about is the fact that the golden age of crime was in between the wars and Agatha Christie was writing all the way through the Second World War and wrote some of her best names route. Twelve books I think during the second mobile without stopping sometimes two books a year and people who wanted to read about this and even in the midst of kind of death and bereavement and destruction and bombs and huge uncertainty. They wanted crime and it becomes. Yeah they sort of. Are they exploring phase safely They wanted to live in a world where the impossible is solved. May Right and where bodies brought to justice. I don't know if there was easy. Onces like I would publish a thesis on it and become a PhD. If it's the same with you but like I say. I think that there's probably a lot misconceptions around crime and just named one of the crime writers that I know apart from nightmare modern switched our Agatha Christie and then shallow stuff like that's the only kind of two touch points a puffer Moton wrenches. The I know like what do you come up against misconceptions at variety forgot anymore misconceptions That you have but like do you come up against those things in the book and what which ones are true and which ones are like. Not Surgery are accurate. I think one thing I sometimes maybe misconception. On the hair is that they. They're not always believable and things. Sometimes people read to escape. Some people read to understand that life or the situational things going on in the world a little bit more and I think there are a lot. I know that there are a lot like that. I think that's not necessarily something I believe. I think that sometimes a bit of misconception that it sort of by so many things can happen to someone in the morning but life I watched enough kind of true crime dramas tonight actually extraordinary things do happen to people. That's why I might see rates because I've always struggled with that exact question of I don't want to write a procedural. I don't want to write about police officer because I don't inhabit that world and it's not my area of expertise and you do run up against the question of realistically. How many bodies can an ordinary person stumble? We're not Jessica Fletcher. We don't like Pandora in Cabot Cove and have a corpse waiting there every single day. So you know something that crime writers struggle with as well but I do. I firmly believe that it is completely possible. Implausible for one terrible unlikely incident to strike people in a lifetime. I think we've all been the victims of those and we know people who've had terrible extraordinary things happen to them so I don't think in itself that's but yet when it happens again and again and again. This is an interesting one because you can say that any genre like pick Saad poetry. And how sad can Waldman really be like you know like a little life is like? That's brutal like I think. We can fly that to to cry when actually we can say that about a lot of German. You're always going to be talking about the extraordinary end of ordinary. Even when you know even when it's just a regular life you're writing about it. In some kind of heightened artificial way. No one writes about life as it really happens because it would be incredibly tedious and full of sequiturs either. That's not how fiction works. We accept that it's a kind of construct but yes how far you'll cater for peds to to follow that construct but do you so. Do you read climate. All right if you read stuff and enjoyed it or you just never really got to grips with that. As as you know I have and I remember when I was younger. My Dad my dad is a big kind of threat breeze all the big American crime office and I remember the get that again. It's I remember picking up because I was on holiday and I ran. We ran out two books and I picked up a Ro Robert Ludlum book and I absolutely loved and for years it was the Sigma Protocol and it was one of my favorite books because it had this kind of I was so gripped by the narrative but also had this kind of the end of real big moral question kind of about ethics and I just found really fascinating but then I didn't pick up another one. So it's it's. It's a bit strange so I don't really know why because the ones I have read. I have enjoyed that. I think I also haven't I work in publishing and a low of my reading is dictated by what I work on. Haven't actually worked with any modern crime. Rights is so I don't know yeah. It's not that I haven't enjoyed them. I just think it's interesting like what we bookshop. What we go towards. Because it's what we see ourselves. I'm like I didn't really see myself as a crime rate even though I've read crime is that thing of like what settles in your head and doesn't right if you were going to pick up the next crime book. Let's find one for eight. What would you be looking for in a crime free Even the book. Yeah gives you elements and we'll diagnose. Okay will somewhere with a real sense of place that I can kind of stand on this because we're not going anywhere right now that we need some vivid sensitive travel escape my falls something historical but maybe more kind of twentieth century historical and something. I do think that raises questions. It makes you think differently about something so I kind of like moral ambiguity in well. I have three suggestions for you. If people are sort of struggling to find their way into genre I sometimes think it's helpful to have sort of stepping stone books. That kind of are not necessarily crime but crime adjacent and a book which I firmly believe is part of the psychological thriller Genre and I would probably be one of the best but isn't usually shoved as that regard it is that is Rebecca by definitely Maury Which I think has the amazing sense of place that you're after Obviously it also literary classics. So it's just a really good book to have read if what is adjusted in literary fiction because it's the touchstone for a lot of kind of literary fiction as well as a lot of crime fiction Another book which again is kind of Paul of the Classic Crime Cannon and I think has the kind of moral questioning and ambiguity. That may be talking about Would be the time. Mister Ripley by Patricia Highsmith She is just wonderful writer full stop. She writes very sparsely. She's amazing at creating character. She plunged irritate and it is a crime novel. You're kind of trying to figure out what's happening whether Ripley's GonNa get caught. But she sort of puts you on the opposite side most crime because you're in Ripley skin and you're rooting for him. Even as he's doing terrible terrible things but you also kind of at the same time want justice to catch up with him but in terms of Morton book which I think takes away your boxes including the historical one. I would highly recommend Alabama cheese Series which is set in the Indian raw and has to fantastic Cactus at the center of it. There's some who's an English man who's been kind of Dropped into colonial India in sort of Typically kind of bossing the locals around and then as he's kind of second in command and sidekicks the not who's an Indian And it's just it's brilliantly done and it tackles some really big questions alongside each time. A really cracking mystery in terms of you. WanNa find out whodunit. You WanNa you the detectives to solve it. You want everyone to be bang to rights but he's really grappling with big twentieth century. Questions that estill dogging us today in terms of the fact that we don't have solutions. These are still things the Iraqi going in the news today. I'm they're just cracking a good races

"In the pantry like that. Hey guys ruby taking a short break. But don't go anywhere we'll be right back Welcome back to thrive bytes. Let's get back to interview. Yeah those are ones For me I You know being Chinese It's always been white rice Our family shifted from white to brown rice. And so I use brown rice When I make my traditional oh it's not traditional now but when I when I make my non traditional Kanji which is a traditional Chinese Savory Porridge It's usually white rice with Duck Egg and lean pork me Ryan with a whole bunch of other stuff right but how I do it. Is You would use brown rice which I always has keen Wa and I and I have Oats and so you know. I do a lot of different things. That would actually be MY BASE FOR STIR. Fry DISHES FOR SOUPS for Gumbo does. And you know that's where you get all your vitamins your fiber and the beans beans beans beans the blue zones booth zones for those who don't know those are the highest concentration of people living over a hundred popular popularized by Dan. Buettner who's been national geographic traveler and photographer and the common food group. That is an every one of these blue zones of living over one. Hundred is beans and so we're to enter so many varieties of beans so many varieties of being so many varieties a lagoon. So you're talking about protein. There's IT's a meth. I teach my patients. Says It's a myth that you don't get enough proteins from just plants. It's a myth that you don't get calcium from plants and and that's what we need so I definitely you know a- Gotha and I have been talking like I challenge you guys to do something different. Do something outside the box and try something new. And you know this is what's going to go to optimize our health. Speaking of food you know during this pandemic everyone is focusing on immunity and gut health and all that other stuff is it. My first question would be. Is it a good idea? Just a focus on that or do you feel like from a food. Perspective McAleer Perspective focus on the whole whole health and then the second part is what types of foods would you recommend now? I think we always need to focus on the whole health. So it's not just the things that we we are adding because everybody's like Oh. I need to get a lot more vitamin C. But when you walk the store us all the foods that the shelves that Mt junk-food Foods that are high in sugar vitamin C. And sugar in our body fight for the same place your t cells so if you are loading so much sugar in. You're still doing yourself any good when you're taking in vitamin C and then we need to rest a little bit. More is the whole human body so it's not just US EATING. Well it in good as important but all the other aspects of. Oh let me rest a little bit more because if I don't rest enough it impacts. My health is just a more holistic approach to wellness that we need to be looking at. That'd be more intentional about it. I really I would hope that people are void. All those type things FRANKEN foods be snacks. Synthetic ingredients all this type of food. That cause inflammation in the body we mid to Rini. Avoid as much as we can I know for some people is a lot harder but then think about this like okay if I am going to those things let it be twenty percents so then you can be eating eighty percent of the right stuff real food because annesley today we have to eat like our life depends on it because it truly does he truly does truly does now now more so than ever. You know what I'm saying now more so than ever because your company was from the perspective of addressing that gap of nine enough good food nutritious food organic food that has natural for kids during this time. You know because kids are indoors not in school right now rain or even as adults you know we could be continuously eating you know a lot of emotions a lot of stress and anxiety is gonna come up and you could emotionally eat rain. So would you say from your perspective in terms of kids and families and parents set you know. Have Kids right now you know. What kind of tips would you give in terms of cooking to keep them fuller on a longer period of time this as that time that I say more fiber more protein when I say protein? I'm not just talking about. Oh it's meet the beans rice and beans food that are going to keep them fuller longer. Have to be rich in fiber would quality protein less sugar so for breakfast. You can do an oatmeal porridge and add a little bit. Oh hempseed in Ed and some bananas to sweeten it slice of apple this will keep them fuller longer instead. If they high save for breakfast they had cereal and milk in two hours than they want to eat again. Unfor- lunch if you're making something like Oh. We're having Pasta for lunch today when you're boiling that pass that if you have lentils at home add some lentils in it. This is the tweet I do in my house a little instead of using milk for this pastime you some coconut milk. Instead of using dairy put some poker nonmeal is going to add facts and that lentils is going to add some pro team Mississippi whole meal for them that keeps them longer and raw fruits. Give them if they want a snack. Give them an apple banana less processed food. It keeps that yeah. Yeah this is based off of a concept of caloric versus nutrient density and what we mean by that. Is You know I am not a big fan of reducing everything to components but you know in our society especially nutrition world. That's what we'd love to do The concept of it is that the sad diet standard American diet is very very caloric debts right so you have a lot a process bats you. Have you know? It's heavier on protein. It's heavier on fats. And you know what you end up having that you're consuming a lot of calories which is energy that we need but it's the wrong type of energy and you know we don't get full from that. We don't get enough nutrition from that so we end up eating more and more and more than that adds to our weight and all these other chronic diseases whereas if you are shifting towards more of eating more plants okay. What you're doing is you're shifting towards eating more nutrient dense foods. Yeah and so. This is where you're going to be heavier on the vitamins. The minerals the antioxidants and the fiber which a large majority of this is not in animal products. And so the reason why you're gonNA feel full as Agatha was saying is that because the fiber which is also good for your gut health and good for all the microbiome in your in your gut. Health immunity is that you know you're gonNA feel it's going to stretch the stomach and you're gonNA feel fuller. You're going to feel full from that fiber and you and it's going to help you eat less and also when you're eating plants you're eating less calories so you're GonNa be losing weight in addition to enhancing your nutrition so I literally say this to every single patient and the reason why I say this on a podcast is because I will reach more people. We will reach more people than I could ever do in a practice seeing patient attack. And so you know the message needs to get out there. You know quicker and we need to be impactful and so I love it you know. I want you to give us your closing remarks and for those in the listening audience That wants to learn more about you. And what you do. And you know Fire products and all that stuff work. Can they reach you? They can find me. Unsocial I- Agatha achieved. Do they can go to my website. Aga- touch into dot com check out yummy spoonfuls. Something that at one to really talk about For people who are really liked all well. I hear you dog with the whole plan days. That's not for me. That was so much science phoenix. I mean there's enough bitter around. Why would need to eat more plant? Even if this is not your thing you can really start by reducing the amount of meat that we eat in this country. It's a lot. A body is not even equipped to process all of that and stugz simply the meatless Monday. Which is something that? I tell a lot of my clients just cut by way meatless on Monday. That's on when you eat meat. Instead of a pound of beef on your plate it might be four ounces. That's enough to give you the the meat protein that you need and it as much planned funeral played with as much as you can eat. Because that's where the fighter nutrients so much that our body need that comes solely from lots. And if you're going to eat meek led to be grass fed pass short race good quality meat so then you can get some good quality new transform it and the same goes for seafood. You know the a lot of people. This is common in my patients. Where when they're trying to think healthy they're shifting from red beat which is commonly known as you know be for lamb or and they're thinking about eating. Oh but I don't eat me but I you know eat chicken and Turkey and I say well that's still meet and like no no doc. I eat fish No that's still meet so basically anything that booze by itself. I would like to say anything that makes a sound right but if it doesn't really make a salad unless you go underwater scuba divers. I know they make a sound anything that makes a noise. I would say minimize it right. Plant Food Lion. Food doesn't make a noise right. I hope it doesn't but they don't make a noise so I would say you know. We need to shift towards eating more plants. And like I was saying if you know. Start off with the meatless Monday. I'm not telling you to go vegan overnight. I'm not telling you go plant based what we're telling you is we have to double or triple or portions of plants to literally save lives. You know so you may not be used to this but I want you to take the time to think about it because it is literally life or death because you know this virus. It does not discriminate. It doesn't care about borders. You know it's to come after you and you know now. I'm happy that you know we. We have a spotlight on public health. And how important public health is and you know.

"When Josh Chuck we're big racists at the beginning you know it's true but just wait for twenty years from now there'll be like I can't believe we talk. Those guys were ages bastards. You know probably so. There's one other thing I want to say too. So when she lived through World War Two Agatha Christie was worried that she's going to die in the bombing blitz of Great Britain and she really wanted Hercule Poirot and Jay Marples to have a final case. So she wrote a book for each of them One is called curtain. That's poor rose from final book and the other is sleeping murder That is marples final case and In it just kind of explains what happened. My belief poor road dies. Marples just retires but when she survived World War Two. She was like well. I don't I'm not ready for these guys to be retired yet. So she kept those books and had them posthumously published and they were in the seventies and when her Hercule Poirot rose last book came out and he died The New York Times ran a front page obituary for him. The only fictional character to have that honor bestowed on them. That's crazy isn't it? Yeah and also very cool good idea to write those books early on just in case because you never know yeah besides the bombing thing. I mean she could. She could walk off a ledge or get hit by a bus or die of natural causes early. Like you never know. And then you've got this legacy cemented right pretty smart. Have you ever seen one last thing? Have you ever seen murder by death? I know I've asked you before I have that DVD sitting on my desk. Well that's amazing that you have that on your desk and you wait. Is it on your desk at work place. I was GONNA say watch tonight. But don't watch it tonight. wait until everything clears no. It's a spoof actually detective books of like Charlie chained in Agatha Christie and Sam Spade and all that that she helped you know Kinda create but it's actually like a complaint from fans of mystery mysteries it's wonderful book trimming movie Truman. Capote's in it David Niven Peter Peter Falk A lot of people James Cromwell as a younger man. James Coco is Hercule Poirot. It's his great. You'RE GONNA love him so I guess we should say that she did. I eventually Five years or three years after I met her in nineteen seventy six at the age of eighty five at her home in Oxfordshire Oxfordshire and it was natural causes. Not Poison know her. Last words were good to meet you. Chuck anything else. I do not have anything else. Well friends that is Agatha Christie. If you I know more about the Christie Start Reading Agatha Christie Books Agatha Christie like three or four times. It's time for listener main part. I'm going to call this letter from a kid because we love reading these letters from kids. Hey Guys I've been listening to your podcast for about eight months now and I'd like to say I am a huge fan This is Emmett. He's ten years old. Oh yeah love this email. My Dad is even more of a fan of you guys than me. And he told me about your podcast. I am a huge fan of the Atlanta Falcons and pretty much everything. Atlanta related including your podcast. Which is weird because I live in Iowa. I love it. It is a little weird though. Emma you're right I love how self aware this guy I think you know when you grow up in a place like Iowa now professional sports you You know you do that thing where you just pick out a team in a city. Yeah you're like the Bay city rollers you. Throw a dart at a map and go with it. That's right now I'm really worried. There's a professional team in Iowa but there is not there is no there are none right. No need to double check. I've been listening to your podcast. A ton during this corona virus outbreak. To keep me from going crazy and it's worked. My birthday is actually coming up. So I'll not be able to see my friends or even have a party. It would be totally awesome and make my year. P.

"I confused that with Snow Piercer. I think I've seen both but I can't remember which one's which they're kind of very similar but Bussan IS ZOMBIES ON. A train Korean film. No then I think I'd just seen snow piercer. You should check out trying to Basan it if you think you've seen it all with Zombie Genre. Then think again do that saying something. Because that's that John Ras gotten a little Tired Day Oh hey let me ask you this have you seen. I know you've seen you had to have ozark. Oh sure I'm just started it. Yeah I'm a couple of episodes into the latest season. Okay Yeah you mean. I started at season one. And I'm like all I WANNA do is sit around and watch ozark. It's amazing Yeah I love it. That's like Hartwell you know. Oh no I didn't know that. Yeah Smart I've tried to get Bateman and Laura Linney on movie crush. It's always thank you know. Oh Yeah Yeah. Hey you're getting responses. That's that's a big step forward. It's nice to be told now and just not a yard. Yeah right all right. So you've got your setting With Agatha Christie. She did include her travels in some of her later novels when they became like Super Popular. But it was still not like a globe-trotting like James Bond kind of thing. No that's that's the point. So like in a espionage thriller. Something locales are all over the place and you know the characters constantly moving In these cozy thrillers. Like even if they're in an exotic locale They're still set in a small part of that exotic locale. That's right you got your suspects. They are Questioned by detective. They usually all have a motive. They usually all have the means. Because everyone you know in a great novel like this everyone's gotta be a suspect from the beginning and then you can kinda quickly whittle or slowly whittled that list down right. And here's the thing what I was saying with the With the the kind of mystery that Agatha Christie wrote and really established you are part of the mystery like. You're either the Investigator the detective has an assistant that they explain things to very much like Sherlock Holmes and Watson sure or if the detective is working solo say like Miss Marple Miss Marples might write a list of suspects and their motives and little clues down as part of the narration. And your your lead in every step of the way so. You're hard of this working toward solving the mystery. And has it's very frequently put it kind of puts you in a competition with author to see if you can figure out who who done it before the end of the book. Yeah I mean that. Goes BACK TO ENCYCLOPEDIA Brown. The whole point is to try and figure that stuff out man. I love those. Those are so great encyclopedia Brown. I remember he busted one dumb kid who did something bad. I can't remember The bugs meany. Oh man good memory. It may have been bugs. Meany was he kind of a big dumb. Oh food like beat up on chipmunks I think so okay. He busted bugs once because bugs had tears coming out of the the outside corners of his eyes freakazoids rather than inside corners. That's good but see the great thing about those books is at a twelve year old. Doesn't really necessarily always pick up on those clues. Oh I did. I was at that grade. I'd be curious to see if they would stop me now. No I mean specifically with the outside of the eye thing but yeah no. I'm sure there are plenty that I missed but she cried when you were boy. I knew staring in the mirror and so then the end to wrap up the little genre sort of summary. You've got this great ending usually where everyone's gathered together and the detective kind of walks. Everyone through the big reveal of exactly. How the killer did it right And in her case she did not Like when the killer is revealed they didn't turn around and shoot them in the face like it's usually pretty non violent. They would be wrestled to the ground or arrested or maybe they might run away and you hear later that they had killed themselves or something like that sure. There was rarely a grand finale where they would be pressed to death in front of a crowd who needs it so that I mean that's it like Bing Bang boom. That was when you started on page one of Agatha Christie novel. You knew exactly how everything was going to play out. And then one of the other things is because the sing with so formulaic. There was also room for this for the author to kind of play with you. The reader In in using things like bluffs in red herring out sure think are basically the same thing but the idea is that so the author in this case. Agatha Christie would say something like You know early on in the book a suspect would come running out of the house looking shaken and Pale and You the reader would be like well. That's just way too obvious. She's not going to name. She's not going to point out who the murderer is at. The beginning of the book can disregard that person or this very obvious clue or something like that. Those kind of part of the interplay between author and reader but then it could go even deeper to where she would say something like well. I know that you think that this is too obvious. I'm GONNA actually make this the actual murderer which she did in some cases which was like a double bluff apparently could just keep going on and on and on but it was this kind of Wrestling match or maybe slap fight between Agatha Christie and you her reader which made the whole thing all the more delight that's right and she takes great pains to point out that she did not invent this genre There were people like Arthur Conan. Doyle obviously po before her that sort of establish some of these rules but she was very popular. She's very good at what she did She wrote about what she knew. And we'll we'll talk about her life coming up in a little bit but these manor houses in these estates and these English villages and even the exotic locales And these train trips and things were things that she actually experienced and you know a lot of people are great at making stuff up. A lot of people are great about writing what they know and it seems like. She was really great at writing what she knew. Yeah and I for some reason either. It was the time or maybe because of her. I'm not sure it was kind of a chicken or the egg thing but she happened to write about stuff that a lot of people wanted to read about these small you know English villages and you know quaint mannerisms of the upper middle and upper class English society Set in this period of time that in for some reason to just captured everybody's attention and apparently when she started expanding I think after World War Two To some slightly more exotic locales like Egypt or Mesopotamia. You know For like a death on the Nile was very famous when during this time or the Orient Express That really catapulted her into superstardom international superstardom. Too Yeah I don't have a super firm read on the history of literature but I get the idea that this is sort of aligned with the beginnings of poplar it And like I call it. The beach book I don't know if there had been a ton of stuff like this. That was just sort of pure comfort food and entertainment up to this point. Yeah I'm not sure either. I know nothing that I'm familiar with. I can say but there were very entertaining books. They were humorous. A very dark sense of humor. Great Dialogue All these Verbal joust between the detectives and the suspects is really key to Genera. Something Nice out did really really well. That was one of my favorite scripts the year. Maybe my favorite script. Wow but Just really really good sharp writing and it's no Sort of no accident that she became so hugely popular. No and that's something like if you're not really familiar with Agatha Christie and you just Kinda look up in passing one of the things you'll be confronted with. Is that a lot of people. A lot of critics say she was a hack and When what they're talking about is that formula that she followed to almost like a a soul ously rational degree like that was the formula. That's what she followed But that really misses like the fact that she had a really great eye for detail in the dialogue like you were saying she was a good writer and she could just crank workout. I think during the decade of the Twenty S. She wrote a book a year. A might have even become more prolific later on in the thirties and forties to yet and she She was a business person. You know Mike. There's nothing wrong with saying. Wow people love this stuff and they sell a lot and Although it took a while for that to happen as we'll see but there's there's nothing wrong with any of that. I think people that call our hack can fly. Yeah go fly with extreme prejudice. Should we take a break? I think so man will come back and talk about her life. Great.

Like leaves and Gorgeous. Lily like flowers that are usually orange but come in a radio collar three to read rusty reg yellow. And there's also some with variegated leaves for you variation fans out there and as to the clavier debate. Well they were named after lady Clive. Who was the granddaughter of Robert Clive and Clive of India? So I guess officially it should be Clavier but Steve from implant center and I both ATV so. You're just going to have to deal with that if you happen. To be a proponent of Clavier Steve Hickman is part of a family run. Nursery called the whole implant center in South Yorkshire in the UK and this interview was recorded before lockdown happen so there may be some references to flower shows which normally at this time of year. Steve would be attending with his plants. But of course that's all been curtailed for the moment but that just put it into context as to why that might be mentioned in this episode. Now Steve as well as being an expert and one of the premier breeders of clears in the UK. He's also an expert breeder of Agatha this to bake and narrowings so didn't check out their website something for the Garden Dot Co dot UK which is got loads of information on growing all of these plans including clears and really is a great resource. I'll put some inks in the show notes so you can take a look at that over to Steve to kick us off with some fron tastic useful information about growing these beautiful flooring house plants and he starts buying explaining exactly what court about clears in the first place where first of all we started and we still do A. I'm a few years ago. They outcomes has changed families into Morella. Deysi which covers the cliff is is not to go into the May.

It's exactly like the ACA pompous impressive with not in flower because of the array of different flower. Colours just fantastic just mind blowing. Libya's went out saying for a long time. Steve Do you think they coming back in fashion? It's a traditional Victorian plot. You say parents and grandparents used to have them up. They used to have they asked pedestrians manly the vote in the oranges and occasionally the yellows but these days like I say these different colors our community the ball and what we're doing to encourage people to start growing With exhibiting clippers at The larger richest flower shows which is Chelsea Chatsworth. Where LAST YEAR? We did it for the first time in the Pavilion Chelsea and we at to get the gold medal along with the pumped exhibits as well so people say all these new fantastic colors for the first time and people with play Orange One Sort of increase in the collections. I think we are always going to be suckers for all those new and interesting plants safe more generally. What are the basic catastrophically? These I think quite tough floods are they. You have Roy of an easy to grow so stopped up in February. If you've clavier in a container they only liked to be repoted every now and again just like yoga from the same family. The lie of the rose to become jested so once. You've you plant in. Say six to eight inch. Container is happy for three. Maybe four years in that same content. Now let style February you start watering the clavier once a week or once a four not just keep it moist but you do start to feed the clear. Once every two weeks and the reason he stopped feeding now become apparent. Sort of later on you do this. Roy through the season about September. Now if you've never wall broom the clavier will start to flower. Send the flower up through the leaves early January February even a little bit early. If it's a really warm room if you keep it nice and cool which we try and do the flower. Later in the season surrender may June time. So You keep watering you. Enjoy the flower ridden. If you pollinate the flowers with a cotton bud In the morning or evening you get seedpods form in which I'll talk about lead but the most important thing to keep flowering every year is the do like a cold spell so when the danger cross gone sort of June two you can take it outside onto the shade of a tree or a shady part of your Patio Conservatory and leave it there while end of walk. Tober bring it in. Just before the frost or alternatively you can keep it in your house while the September implicit outside September October so it gets not Eight to ten week chill sets the board in the base of the plant for flower in the following spring. Now you can't live is fairly dry over winter. So December January you keep it on the dry side not bone dry but dry. That's the rest in period And brings you into February. You start watering and keeping it moist you feed once a fortnight the fade then brings the flower up through the leaves and the flowers normally just held above the leaves. If you don't say it correctly the flower often stays in the central Rosette delays. And you don't really see it so the cold spell. In the autumn. The dry over interest impaired undefeated wants all night. It keeps you plumbed health and on the issue of fertilizer.

A Spy in the Desert

"So this I'm joined in my studio right now. By the most vigilant defender of Knightdale end of literature. Please welcome to the air. Sixteen year old to Mika. Flynn hi no. You must be learned that. There's a dangerous spy spy on the loose. Of course it's not safe to have an interloper learning our secret. What could they learn? That would hurt us. Oh lots of stuff. What if they start uncovering covering all the plot twists of our favorite novels like murder on the Orient Express? Agatha Christie's brilliant who done it. What if they read ahead and learned that the murderer murderer turns out spoilers? I'm just teasing. That book doesn't doesn't even have an ending.
