"You know to be able to say things and create everybody and a few people can suddenly corral an army of people and then a thing exists that maybe need not exist maybe need not or maybe didn't even and it got changed and you know a lot of times. I look even my own hateful comments. And i'm like i look at the you know the count and there's they have no no followers they have no. It's easy and and we love you like if you got your instrument. Fan accounts for. Billy are always throwing so much love. Well i love her fans. But that's my point is that sometimes i think these things get started by people who are not in the fan at all in fact many are not even on the progressive side of society and things get started We're quite quick on the progressive side to cancel. People hold people very accountable in the maybe the other str- spectrum isn't very interested in that but they liked to take people down so you have to be careful. I think people. I wish people would start to think. Like is this person we wanna destroy or is maybe this even coming from from someone who would want to destroy that because they're you know have a different agenda you know and that's really scary time that let's say like you look at the account you're like. Wow this person isn't even a real person or at least we don't know who they are. Where is that coming from i. I don't know that's why keep i've been thinking lately. Just more and more about like we have to make this move toward More compassion and resort of justice and a different way of looking at people's mistakes and flaws and in humanity and has to be a two way street on where you fall you know on the spectrum. Yeah you have to be forgiving and accepting in like in learning can we learn is about. How can you learn right. can you learn. can you change. can you grow Do you learn you change to grow and you can give that benefit of the doubt to any to anyone on any side right to side. I mean side is a dangerous word but you know on any full philosophical point. Can you learn. Can you be compassionate. can you grow and I mean i think about you know. I mean it's nothing new people. People who are this generation is in a unique positions cruise. It's crazy and you being a mom. I mean your daughter's like nineteen you know with untold millions of people who all have the right to say whatever they want to say about her the protective instinct. Like i just you know it's like a hug you like. I can't imagine you know it's hard. It's hard not to shout and yeah and and say stuff you know and and yet it's hard it's really you can't protect them from this in its is she the you know i mean i. I know very talented artists whose careers have been destroyed already. They'll never really have the career they merited because of something stupid they said at fifteen you know on the internet and and maybe it was really actually bad and they actually meant it at the time or something but is at worth destroying them forever. You know we're just in this infantile or adolescent stage with our reckoning with social media because it's so unprecedented. I can't imagine you know. Billy generation is the first to grow up with this from the gecko. Everybody is going to have their lives completely documented. Everybody's saying stupid shit and making mistakes and there's video of it. So is everybody going to get canceled. I mean how are we going to select the people that are gonna be criticized for these things. Like i mean thank god. These things didn't exist when i was a kid. Well that's what everybody says. It's like an episode of black mirror. The whole thing is an episode of black mirror. Feels like it's it's so extreme. You know it's so extreme. I dunno it's infantile. You say like how do we teach people you know i would go you know. My niece is a school vice principal. And she's trying to get you know. Non violent communication restorative justice into the schools. I think we have to start teaching from day. One like in our homes in our schools. You know mindfulness and compassion all these things. But that's a tall order really tall order to imagine a long way to go but if you look at the vegan movement and everything that's going on crazy it's it's a compared to where it was not that long ago five years ago when you were a kid in western colorado to on your dad. You wanna eat meat. I was not a kid in thirty five years ago. it was like a full on. I'm not thank you for over long ago long ago but yeah like can you imagine. I mean you know i had years. I ate a salad dry. Baked potato you know. And i was happy that if there was some kidney beans in the salad bar yeah. I've heard you talk about how you spent years if not decades serve being apologetic like always overly accommodating to every everybody else because you don't want to ruffle feathers. I know what that feels like. And i love what you had to say about letting go of that and just being. Why am i apologizing for being who i am. Yeah and why. Am i apologize for for being away am. Who's doing something that is right is is moral better act. Yeah making a positive impact. There's nothing negative. About the way. I live my life as far as my diet is concerned. Right it's only positive it. It's more positive to the climate. It's compassionate toward animals. Why would i apologize politics for that. Why would i. But i get it. And i think this is a dilemma for a lot of people who wanna step into this lifestyle because it's so socially fraud and they don't want to have to be a problem to their friends and their family members and i think it scares a lot of people off who might or might wanna take a look at it because they don't want to be difficult but i think it's empowering to let people like you don't have to apologize and we're now or in a culture where wherever you go. There are vegan options and people get it and they're more accepting if not embracing of the whole thing and we don't have to be in that mindset anymore. We can like standing our strength with this way of living. Yeah and still be. You're still find yourselves in situations where you have to be shouting about it at the time and place after be gracious. You have to be gracious to the kindness of the people around you and their journey and you can't be shouting about it every time but that's different from being apologetic you know. And that's the that's the change you know used to be invisible about it and i don't mind me you know i'm sitting in the corner with my tupperware. I brought food. Yeah i made a whole separate entree. Because i knew there would be nothing here for me to you know and now you you know you may find yourself still in places where you know. People have a different philosophy. But you know. I i deal with my part of it differently. Permission to be obnoxious. No it's definitely. I think that's a beautiful way to say it. No you don't get to be obnoxious. You just don't have to be cowering and apologize right. In the meantime we can all go out and support support feed. Yes you're in four cities right. La washington where else city or and how many restaurants do you have off good question. I don't know the answer to that But many odd yeah. i mean. they're look. It looked like at least a dozen. Yeah we have a lot and and also we don't just not just restaurants you know we also help provide Kind of a pipeline for products if someone has extra almonds or extra of follow your heart cheese and we can help get it to people who need it or maybe to a restaurant to make more meals for people. We've done a lot of that as well. And like i say we're gonna be in in many many cities in two thousand twenty two and even in europe because the opportunity with this feeding people meeting people expanding the mission and then ultimately you know all fifty states and of so-called presence and tours is going to be like steroids. The africans lucky opportunity at such an amazing and we have the support of everyone on..

"That i found to be the most interesting was the scene in the backyard where she's essentially blocking her music video and you're sitting at the table as stand and she's like this is how it's going to go and this is what the cameras gonna do. And it's not going to do this like those other cheesy things. It's going to do this now. Mom pick up the water and drink this. And she's literally making her music video with a camcorder or the phone or whatever it is and i just thought everybody else just needs to get out of the way because this kid knows exactly what she's doing she has such a command over her creative voice and such a sense of purpose and direction with where she wants to take it and it was so beautiful to see that at such a young age before any of those things manifested that confidence. That self assuredness in what it is that she was here to express. That's nice I always wish. I had like puts a makeup on and worn like a little nicer clothes. Little did you know i. I think that's the whole thing and a lot of times it's me filming to and then it's like and then if somebody i look horrible but that was really. That was her though she was making movies like that. From very early she made music videos with her friends. Bosson her friends around telling them what to do. Church assured you know. She knew what she wants. You had the you know what. She took her first steps into a video camera because from the earliest days. She wanted that camera and so i was filming finished. Air and she wa- she goes mec- and she wanted to look at the camera and she walked into the camera. We got her first ups on camera but from the earliest days. She wanted that camera in her hand. She wanted to see what was going on. She understood it then. She had her friends come over. She filmed everything. And i mean. I'll say parenting tip. Maybe if it's a tip let your kids have the body camera. I mean now that you know it's a phone but you know we always let our kids like us the real stuff you know like have the real camera have the real tripod. Have the whatever mess up the house. Trash it but she was making movies with her friends from from so early i remember coming out one time and she and we have a little house you see on the backyard she's put. The aerial circus met on the ground outside the garage. She's put a wedding dress on from a play that i was in the heidi chronicles that i kept the dress. She's on top of the roof. She got camera setup. She's filming herself. Jump off the roof onto the mat with the camera like in a wedding dress. She would come up with these crazy ideas early on and i think that's like another parenting lesson. Just think how many kids are out there. Who right now you know could make our. I mean they are listened. Locks is full of kids making amazing art schools. All over the world are making kids. Not in school you know. Gymnasts are at their prime at these ages. Right and so are a lot of young artists. You know but that was definitely her she. She's always like that to this day. She's directing or videos and you know every take and you know the the the she finally gets to make that video with this director amazing director. It was amazing but then she still like next. I'm directly. you knew what he was awesome. He had a very quiet though so she couldn't hear him so she made them turn the monitor around so she could see it herself and she had a very clear vision and then people were like if she's going to have that clear vision. It's really kind of not even fair to the directors and so is she's gonna co-director has to be a director who's like knows going in like she's going to have a lot to say minimum extract from that like in a broader context. Is it from a parenting point of view is just the the the power of like allowing kids to be kids and just getting out of the way like i said earlier. Like in that scene where you're being a good sport. You could been like well. You might wanna think about this or did you think it. No you. don't say any of that. You just let your kid. Have this exploration i about jumping off the roof. There's something to be said for just you know letting kids be instead of policing them or over scheduling them or putting them in a specific lane. And saying you're going to be this like so much of parenting is just receding into the background in those moments and providing them this base so that they can indulge their creativity. Yeah and carrying the stuff you know a famous said that to somebody recently. You know you don't need to buy your kid a three thousand dollar guitar. You know you don't need that in a what what can you do. You can help them hall their stuff into the car and haul them out at the band practice or whatever you know about so many right hauling it like making sure they get their you know Yes allowing it and not not kind of over pushing it. You know a lot of people. I think they're like oh. My kid is interested in this so the next day. They have my parenting moments. It's my moment they're gonna have a classical guitar lesson. They're going to have three thousand dollars guitar and they have this like it doesn't have to be that you know 'cause also that's a lot of pressure for kids you know. Most you know this was another parenting thing. That was hard but we parented. I i we parented in the age. I'm really happy to say was with the kind of anti good job philosophy. Do you know that okay. Well there was. I'm not going to remember his name. But there was a great set of essays and things that was about the overdoing of the phrase good job right and our felt fortunate that we were to hear that philosophy because there's a kind of over praising that happens to kits you know like good job carrying your this and good job peeing and good jobs like what does that mean range and and so it was. It was kind of philosophy more about like. It's less about what i think about you and is what about how you what you think about me right. So let's give the example of like 'cause. I taught aerial circus for a long time. If somebody climbs the aerial silks for the first time. i don't say good job. I'm like you did it. You got there. How does it feel. It's more about your accomplishment right and and when finished was a little kid was like this kind of precocious drummer. Like we got it. He wanted drum kit at three and he would drum any crazy and it was great but then sometimes people would come over and they're like you're an amazing drummer. You're the greatest jermiah. That's like very counterproductive for kids Fini's went to a karate class. One time he loves his karate class so much like you could see the light in his eyes. He was running. I had this long hair. He loved it and then the end of the end of the class. The teacher goes all right at this studio. We have a ritual. We always have a student of the day and they get the head you know the whatever the had take home and my heart sank al's like oh no ono finished going to be the student of the day i know it because he was new and of course he was. He got that headband. Got to take it home. It ruined because all he now cared about was all my gosh. I was student of the week. Oh my gosh. I got the the headband. I got this. I crochet and well and also like okay. I'm gonna be the student of the week again next week. And i'm like i know comes performance oriented as granted and then the next week. He's like. Why wasn't i student of the week this week. Mom i'm like well. They give to different kid every day. Every week he goes. Yeah but i really worked hard. And i was the best i was like. But that's not what it's about. The whole. The reward became the external prize before they had the reward. He loved the class and it literally sunk it and i saw it happening and it was the most visual physical experience of it like through ward has to be the doing. The reward is making the music. The reward is learning the the thing it's not the prize and the prize can be fun but yeah the reason. Now take that example. And let's play that out in a huge broad context billy eyelash sitting at the grammys. They're about to announce the winner and she's mouthing like please don't let me i mean. Is that any different than the famous in the karate class. It's kind of the same thing. Well it slightly different. Because you know the reason don't let it be me is cushy. No she's.

"And he brought me. I got the job mattis actually health insurance. Yeah yeah yeah. The groundlings seems like it was fun. Now you were. You were there at a golden era of all it was You taught there too. Yeah there yeah. It was fun you know. Some one of my best friends still is from the growlings. amy yeah it was fun. You know. I i came out to. La from play been touring in a play and my mother had recently died. And i i was very sad and came and i saw show with the ground. He's another friend of mine was in. I was like oh that looks like so much fun. Wow i didn't honestly didn't even know that existed like i'd always wanted to be like lily. Tomlin on snl. All that. but i had been in the kind of more serious acting world. You know the more traditional acting world so When i saw that i was like that's for me. I want to go do that. I'm so sorry taking classes at the groundlings and the thing about that. Was you just laugh. So hard all the time you know and teaching the same. I really miss. Teaching is not easy for me to do that now. But i miss teaching. Because it's just laughing for three hour. Teaching improv top. Melissa mccarthy well not that she needed to learn anything so let's say. She was in in my class for cool based her basic teacher. Her first teacher groundlings. Yeah but that whole class of melissa's was great. Everybody in that class was great. May think taylor went on to be successful director. I mean i could name. I don't wanna name. Because i will miss somebody and they were all crate. Her whole class was great. Fundamentally i think of you as a teacher in general like that that's your lane. I think that's where you excel because that shows up throughout your life and all these different ways like whether it's through some kind of odd job or the way that you raise your kids or the groundlings like when in doubt like you find a way to be a teacher in some capacity like it feels like you're always pivoting back to that well. It's interesting because my father was a teacher and he was a beloved teacher and yeah i mean i think you're right actually love teaching and i have found a way to teach anything i know how to do. I will try to teach someone else. Because i want them to share in the fun. I mean i've taught cake decorating and aerial circus and songwriting and ukulele and life skills and litter drama. You know kind of anything. I know how to taught a lot of improv. Obviously but yeah i do. I do like teaching and sometimes just for survival like all barter you this so i could get this. I'll teach this class so that my kid can get in theft transcript by. That's totally my husband. And i did a lot of bartering so i would teach I i started assistant teaching aerial circus of it. My kids and i could do it. And then i started teaching it you know and we did a lot of bartering. My husband like us to do handyman work at the little gym. So that billy could have gymnastics classes. Yeah worked it. Worked out bartering system. Sweet yeah. I fell in love with your husband watching the documentary i mean. He is like the unsung hero of the movie. Always lurking in the background taking care of the laundry or kitchen or putting stuff away like he served just always there making sure that everything is a well oiled machine. Yeah picking up. The dog poop shouting. He makes noises you. He always has made noises. He and billy have a lot in common goofy like strange noises and stuff and he. He's always doing that in the background and sometimes like a new person. We'll see like when finished his girlfriend. Claudia came into our lives. We kind of forget about like patrick's auditees you know. And then a new prison comes over there. Like dad's a hang on doing. He's like shouting. Yeah he's unusual. I love his mustache to in the movie. The mustache no that was a rough period. I did not love it. But i've always been world class. It was but i've always been like what you do. You wanna do. I don't care like facial. Hair comes goes do what you wanna do right. I've never been controlling that mustache. God the little old because we were on tour forever and just kept getting more and more and the problem with something like that is. It's the same currently for I'm going out danny. Billy's manager for this. He has his beard that has grown and grown and grown to cove it. And we're just like what is it gonna go but the more attention you get like because you know when you got mustache like patrick hat like everyone talks shirt you know. Everyone comments on it all the time. How can you get rid of that. It's it's a conversation wall. The movie was one of the best things that i've seen over the last year. I just absolutely love it. I've watched it a couple of times going into it as i suspect you know. This might be the case for a lot of people thought. Oh this'll be a documentary about billy's trajectory and it of course is that but it's really this incredible like layered on top of this coming of age story. Is this incredible document of a family. It's really a movie about parenting as much as anything else. And this unit. And how. They're trying to navigate this crazy insane skyward trajectory while trying to maintain sanity and remaining grounded. In what is most important i think. Rj did an amazing job. I think that's definitely how he saw it. You know and he did a great job telling that story. They also used a tremendous amount of my footage. Sure which. I think is new to documentaries. You know to really have that kind of immense amount of phone footage etc And he did a great job of like incorporating like real home values. I think that was kind of his his goal to like. Have a story of a of a family for sure..

"This goes back a long time for you. As you mentioned you grew up in colorado your dad hunter and fisherman. So were you the dugout to say. I want to be vegetarian as a kid. My brothers became vegetarians. To my father fish. We always went fishing. Who's indoctrination didn't didn't say dad was awesome. By the way and he loved the outdoors he'd been asthmatic kid on the east coast got sent out to the west to go to boarding school because he would literally die in the east and he discovered the out of doors and he loved it he loved fishing. He went hunting every year. It was in. I grew up in western colorado. That was a big part of the culture. I loved going fishing with my dad. Because you know meant sitting in a boat outside all day he threw all the fischbach. You know eventually And he had three kids who didn't want to eat meat or fish. Snap funny not one of us would ever eat a fish ever and none of us would eat a deer We all re issued. I don't think any of us ever eight steak like those saying. I don't know something in our dna. The you know we made to eat meat but like the only thing would do you know the most burned kind of unrecognizable. I remember the only term what was ever kind of punished. I sat at a table for many many hours. I have a very very clear memory of sitting at a table. Because i would not eat a bite venison So i don't know why we all my brothers to this day there's still -tarian they've never eat mean ever since where here's black Dna fragment or something happened along. The way. i've i've met other people like that For no kind of obvious reason from early on or like. I'm not eating that and you know at the time it was really one hundred percent. The animal component was. I'm not going to eat an animal. And then of course later it became about the environment and then very sadly my mother died of a heart attack. Fifty seven suddenly and my mother had been a family where heart disease was very prevalent. My brothers and i all have genetically extremely high cholesterol. So know. The health component generally came in at that point. You know. I think there is something about growing up in proximity to animals though. So many vegan activist grew up on farms. And perhaps something about your dad going out and hunting and being around those large animals or you know in a different way from the way you experience when you go to the grocery store or the restaurant when you see bandies mom you know goes two ways either you become the hunter and the fishermen and there is a beautiful appreciation for nature and a deeper connection to the food that you're eating so i wanna make sure i say that but also that sensitivity to the fact that it is essential being that didn't exactly sign up for being eaten. Yeah and interestingly. I would agree with you about the hunting. I mean a lot of people over my lifetime. I've heard say things. Like i would never hunt and i'm like but you would buy in a package at the grocery store and to me. If i'm if i'm going to have an opinion i be like i would respect someone who hunts it more than someone who would never go about. They're doing they're doing the terrible dirty work themselves. Not expecting someone else to do it. And then we'll say that in my father's later he died of pulmonary fibrosis. Twenty years ago. He he did not feel good about the hunting he. He kind of regretted it so he came to different place with it in his older age around. No he died at seventy four so he didn't he didn't love it. Didn't love looking back at it so he came somewhere with interesting. Yeah he's stuck around a little bit longer. May maybe he would have gone in your direction interesting and also for his health you know. Here's something kind of interesting you know. I was a vegetarian for many years. Well if since i was a teenager but in when i became a vegan you know it was all the reasons i learned about animal agriculture. The dairy in the eggs and it just became unavoidable. Like you know you can only deny you know. Oh it's cage free eggs. Oh it's this and then you go out all of that kind of nonsense right so i did. It massively changed I had really been developing arthritis in my hands that one way then my family. Who was all vegetarian. Patrick veneers and billy. They came to separately later and each of them had him major health. Change from it. Each each different. My husband had had a lifelong problem choking on food And it was quite serious. He had to have several medical procedures and it was like a daily occurrence oded vaginas and when he gave up dairy it went away. It's cruising basically overnight. You're turned out his condition called e-e-e-e-no listened phillix esophagitis and at the time they didn't know it was but subsequently they have discovered it. It's it's an allergy in your safa guess primarily today dairy eggs fish while yeah. Isn't that crazy. That's so crazy. All his medical any. I went to the doctor and he was like he told the doctor. Like i cured it and doctor of course didn't believe him and then you know eventually within the next year to they signed up that's why zip coming back for more. Don't you worry but first let me get a word in about my favorite shades.

Mikes Exciting New Business
"Bryant so like i mentioned at the top joined by two good friends and now business partners mr michael janice from e com crude dot com and build l. andrew from elements brands dot com looking forward to diving into the deal and talking through it and before we get soon gritty wanted to give a disclaimer. One thing. we're not gonna do. It feels a little strange mike. I know you are really transparent with what you do. Bill you are as well traditionally have shared everything. We decided not to show the name of the company that invested in partially in large part. Because we have a lot of investors here in just out of sensitivity to them partially because we want to be can sensitive to the to the seller as well but kinda love to be transparent and usually usually are but needs to be a little bit more just a little bit more sensitive with the name and the details of this company. So that being said i wanna walk people through can how the deal came about how we structured it Some the closing challenges. And can i get an update on how things have been going since we closed and mike what originally the seller who is someone that we both know how to relationships with reached out to you and i to talk about selling and kind of morphed into potentially. Hey we should take a look at this. What was it that you liked about the deal. Mike and then maybe bill you can share as well kind of from the outset. Yeah i mean for me. It was just knowing knowing the person. So i knew that i was getting full. Transparency mean whenever you buy business offer any website or platform you always have to worry about. What is the the cellar hiding. And so no we know was talking to the seller before they even contemplating to us like i felt like we have an inside track on the margins. Really good in this business. There's some some secret sauce. Defensibility that i think that you know is is really appealing and so that's kind of how the whole thing how the whole thing started once. They decided they didn't want to sell. I did bring up well. Maybe that's something we'd be interested in and so it's kinda hold the whole thing together. Yeah that's similar to the thing that i like to which is kind of does all come back to the seller. I knew this person pretty well for few years. Also and the thing that i knew about this person was that they had great systems. They were really a kind of festivus. Entrepreneur had everything documented. And this was out when we got the tax returns and they tied to the penny or almost almost exactly to the penny to the company's financial records. So i knew that this person was running a tight ship because i knew who they were and that was baird out during diligence. So for me. That was that was an important thing as well. I'm thinking back to the original conversation. Now that i had with them and the only thing that was kind of going through my mind because you just mentioned bill like they run a tight ship. You're always for things that you can approve upon. It's like when a businesses like really running. Well it's not really the thing that i think that we look for typically right. We're looking for something where we can fix something. That's broken in some ways. But there was a few things that they just feel comfortable with or didn't really want to to mess around with them. One of them was sourcing from basically from china and so they're buying things from suppliers in the us. That are the things from from china. So i thought oh well. There's a opportunity there. I saw some opportunity in. Seo stuff where. They just wasn't their biggest focus. They were focused mostly on on the amazon staff and so it was kind of thinking through things. Okay while the parts. That i don't necessarily want to deal with neo the the operational stuff where i'm not necessarily going to make any improvements to it. We can take that stuff over and let it continue run smoothly but the things that i think that we can add our secret sauce or or knowledge to are wide open spaces and so that was the only thing that appeal to me. Yeah that was kind of the perfect combo in this business. Right there was there was really tight systems for the things the business was doing. But this seller kinda said look you know. This businesses optimized a lifestyle business. I really like my lifestyle. I have a great one the seller gave us a list and they said on day one. You should do this this and this and we saw a. Why didn't you do those things and seller says. Be too much work. You know. I make enough money. You know i'm happy is great and this kind of sounds ridiculous but i see this on elements. Brands deals as well as you know. People are making six figures a year and they're happy right so that was sort of the perfect combination. Usually the people who are on cruise control are not very well organized and so the downside of of lots of stuff to improve that you've also got shore up the basic operations but this was a great combination that the seller was super buttoned up. Kind of on the things that were in their wheelhouse and had just consciously not pursued a bunch of things that we real excited to pursue. Yeah i remember having a conversation with the seller during diligence and diving into advertising and some of the advertising was returning a pretty good good level. And there's a lot more room as well. Why why didn't you just bump up spent here. It was working well. And and i i just think she hadn't wasn't something that she had the pan west or inclination to do and so it's tons of opportunities for growing the business. Yo things i liked about it too is a checklist. I had on the espn capital front for businesses to look at good margins which is important. This one has that repeat. Business is a big one and ahead. I think really strong business. Thirty percent plus of people. Reordering a boring or unsexy niche. And it's that is. I think you know i like that. I like niches. That are not super glamorous. more money in their often. The only thing that scared me was the amazon concentration and it had most the sales come from amazon but the thing the only thing they gave me comfort there was bill like you said that history with the seller knowing how risk adverse they aren't how cleanly in from a white hat perspective built that business gave me a ton of at least a lot more comfort on that front. I mean you can be comfortable with all you want but like amazon. You're still in amazon's pie and so remote or whatever and this was the concerns me like even going into this. But i think that's something that we all accept as as amazon sellers. Hopefully this isn't the thing that they target to amazon. Basics thing or disrupted in some other way. it's always a little bit scary but it also goes to thing that i'm excited about. Which is your. They were not necessarily focused on their own website. As much as i think we're going to try to be. We'll see how how this plays out a lot of times. You know as a buyer business you have like all these dreams and they don't always play out the way that you think they will. But i'm pretty confident that efforts in just kind of digging into things after talking to the seller now for pull last couple of weeks. There are some pretty big opportunities to at least lessen. The amazon risk factor. It will never be fifty fifty or anything like that in terms of website sells damas on at least we can get more more sales through our

Judiciary Committee sets date for vote on Barrett confirmation
"This morning, Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee tried and failed to slow down the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Amy Cockney Barrett, who appears to be on track for the high court before the November 3rd election. NPR congressional reporter Claudia Gonzalez joins us with the latest and Claudia Today is Day four of Cockney barrettes confirmation How far apart of Republicans and Democrats on this committee over the sheer pace of this confirmation hearing? It's really going pretty fast. They're moving as quickly as they can. Republicans. Are they? Both sides remain very far apart. Just this morning is you had mentioned Democrats were able to delay today's proceedings. They did that by about two hours. And they're hearing now from a series of experts and Barrett is not appearing s. Oh, it's just a reminder of how these two sides are so opposed right now. Democrats don't want to see this nomination move forward, but they also have very limited tools and their disposal to stop this process. Republicans have been steadfast in their mission to approve Barrett to the court before Election Day, and even this much of the country is already in the midst of early voting. So this is moving on schedule for Republicans, even with the Democrats attempts to stall with a vote set for next Thursday to move her nomination from the committee to the full Senate floor. What's been some of the analysis of how Cockney Barrett has has come across this week, while surprisingly, even with this bitter partisanship on display right now, this hasn't been this combative and contentious as we saw during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings from 2018. Democratic senators told reporters last night that Barrett isn't his combative as Kavanaugh. So that's taken Ah lot of the heat out of this wave of hearings this time that say they've complained repeatedly that Barrett has been evasive. She's declined to talk about how she might rule in the future on certain cases. And she's also dodged questions on climate change and other matters that air of importance right now, But in light of that, Republicans say Barrett and her background is still resonating with the American public. She did have some things to say, though, about the case coming before the high court this week after the election, challenging the affordable care act, what stood out there? So she hasn't said she'll recuse herself. From that case, she was grilled extensively on this. Democrats say Trump is putting her on the court to overturn it. And Democrats say Barrett auditioned for the court threw a Siri's of critical pieces against the we should note. Again that this case will be before the court just a week after the election, and she hasn't said this week, however, that she's on a mission to destroy it, but still, it remains unclear how she could rule here. And says she hasn't looked at the issues yet and doesn't know how she will either. There was also this moment yesterday in an exchange with Senator and Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris, who pressed Cockney Barrett on her beliefs about whether Koven 19 was infectious. Whether smoking causes cancer. And whether climate change is real. I will not expressive you on a matter of public policy, especially when that is politically controversial because that's inconsistent with the judicial role as I have, explained Barrett and you've made your point clear that you believe that's a debatable plan. And in Harris was responding there on noting that Cockney Barrett is saying climate change is a debatable point. What are other Democrats saying about moments like this? And what are Republicans, also saying in response, Democrats are using this as ammunition that Baird has been evasive and using. This is an example of claims that the American public still doesn't know. Bear it well enough to know she's a right fit for the Supreme Court in this ties into another concern, just raised by Democrats in today's hearing. Claiming Barrett has yet to submit comprehensive information of the committee about her background because again, this is such a rushed process on. Even Democrats have conceded they haven't had enough time to dig in to bat. Barrett's background to bring some And even more comprehensive look at this nominee and how she could shift the court. So in terms of her asking thes questions that Paris and others if they feel like they're haven't been enough answers, But Republicans say that she's presented a complete picture enough to be approved to the to the highest court. Okay, So what's the timeline for the committee to vote on her nomination and then the full Senate? So we know to Republican Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski. R potential. No votes, but But even still, is this a done deal? This appears to be a done deal from here. Of course, a week is eons away these days, so we can't say for sure what's going to happen. However, the committee has set that vote for next week to vote her nomination out to the full Senate floor so the full Senate could take this up sometime in the remaining days of the month. And in terms of who might vote against that, Yes, those two Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska are two potential no votes. Democrats are still hoping that they'll have more Republicans flip and vote against this and perhaps derail the effort. But right now it looks like this could be a done deal.

Giga Texas Timeline Update, and the TSLA stock rebound
"Everybody. Robin our here, and today is kind of a Giga Day. We have news from gigafactory Shanghai Gigafactory, Texas gigafactory New York, and then we'll talk a little bit more about lucid ahead of their livestream unveil of the lucid air tonight, and of course, the stock which we can start out with dessel stock on the day to day finishing up eleven percent to three hundred, sixty, six dollars twenty eight cents on the back of a rising macaroni Environment Nasdaq for the day up two point seven percent. So as I said, yesterday, I, hate, stop-loss orders. This is exhibit a for why that is as Tesla today without much news swung back significantly in the. Other. Direction. That's really my only thought on the stock today. So let's move into the news. There was an interesting post this morning on Tesla Motors Clubs Forum by Ridge. Twenty twenty about a possible time line for Tesla's gigafactory in Texas. This user writes quote have some information on the tear factory build schedule. Tesla is sourcing how vendors slash contractors to bid on work at the site and quote this user then shares some screen shots presumably of some documents involved in that bidding, the most interesting of which lays out a project schedule in that project schedule not a first substantial completion date of May I twenty twenty one according to the American Institute of Architects. Substantial completion is quote the stage in the progress of the work when the work or designated portion thereof is sufficiently complete in accordance with the contract documents so that the owner can occupy or utilize the work for its intended use and quote the schedule also notes that the first dry in what happened on December thirtieth twenty twenty I xdrive just means that everything is sort of sealed up with the building shell so that interior work can commence without having to be exposed to the elements, and then in a separate page here that has also included. There's a more detailed schedule noting that in September they'll be doing things like underground electrical, mechanical plumbing, etc.. October would be fencing porta-pottys waste removal metals, recycling recycling removal, and then November would be architectural interiors which based on the dry and date assume would be non weather sensitive into your stuff. So obviously take this for what it's worth. It has just forum posts, but the documents to me look like they would be pretty legitimate I. Don't think there's a ton of reason to doubt it. I. Think for those of us that follow closely this would be pretty much in line with our expectations. This will be going from breaking ground to possibly production ready in under a year which we know Tesla is targeting based on their work active factory Shanghai originally and now With gigafactory Berlin as well. Speaking of Shanghai Tesla continues to make rapid progress at the gigafactory. They're the global times earlier. This Week reported that Tesla has completed the main section of phase two, which is for the Mata why and they write quote at present interior decoration and electromechanical testing being carried out and are expected to be completed on schedule in October and November and quote not exactly sure what interior decoration needs to be carried out and completed. I'm guessing that's probably something that's lost in translation probably more equivalent you interior design meaning, functional interior design. But regardless, we continue to see these reports about phase two in Shanghai though the Global Times appears. To also expect production to begin for the Monterey in one though they do cite other media reports on that which we have talked about. Personally, I'm still expecting some motto is to come out of gigafactory Shanghai. This you're probably not enough to be immaterial to quarterly results or the financials but more. So again, sign heading into twenty twenty one which cannot believe were that close to you already shifting back to the US and over to the energy side of the business with Peissel's gigafactory. In New, York a different type of gigafactory Tesla. Roddy today posted an article with the headline of quote vessel energy ramps hiring AC in New York for accelerated solar production and. Quote you on did actually re tweet this article in which Tesla Roddy writes quote a source familiar with the matter who spoke to Tessa. Roddy talk to employees at the plant who indicated the facility is currently operating on a twenty four hour schedule six days a week to keep up with demand. Altogether, this move seems to confirm the eighty eight acre location is accelerating solar production and installation insignificant way which coincides with the company's growth and the energy sector and quote while energy storage has definitely grown historically solar has actually been quite slow Tusla recently, which I think was correctly pointed out by Gordon Johnson in our bowl baird debate. So if we go. Back to two, thousand, seventeen, for example, cutie, Tesla deployed one, hundred, seventy, six megawatts of solar energy versus this most recent you only twenty seven megawatts of solar. There are a lot of reasons for that. The business model has shifted significantly but right now it's not at the point that at once what's Tesla's hope? Of course is that the solar roof changes that about which started in their cute you letter that quote solar roof installations roughly tripled in Q. to compare to key one, we continue to expand our installation team to increase the deployment rate and quote of course, this is a new product so to starting from a very low base for Tesla from. But hopefully, that growth rate continues we've also recently seen tesla cut their prices significantly for rooftop solar. Now, offering the lowest price systems in the United States at least at a dollar forty, nine per watt after incentives under cutting other systems and the US by about thirty percent on average. So plenty of reasons to be hopeful that Tesla is on the precipice returning to growth for the solar business and are on their way to finding a business model that works for them consistently for solar going forward. Next today on into provide an update to yesterday's discussion on delivery wait times. I've seen a few comments noting that those have changed for people today they have actually changed for me as well. So the model y currently sets for the all wheel drive version at seven to eleven weeks for me here in the Midwest two to four weeks for the performance for the Model S. and the Model X. Both of those currently sit at eight to twelve weeks versus yesterday's ten to fourteen. Weeks and the model three has held steady for all trims at two to four weeks.
Demonstrate God's Word in Your Life (Ezekiel 4:4-8)
"Zekiye chapter four versus four through eight. Then, lie on your left side and place the punishment of the House of Israel upon it. For the number of the days that you lie on it, you shall bear their punishment. FRY signed to you a number of days three, hundred, ninety days. Equal. To the number of the years of their punishment. So long. Shall you bear the punishment of the House of Israel? And when you've completed. You should lie down a second time but on your right side and bear the punishment of the House of Judah. Forty days I assign you a day for each ear and you shall set your face toward the siege of Jerusalem with your arm Baird and you shall prophesy against the city. And behold I will place cords upon you. So you cannot turn from one side to the other till you have completed the days of your siege. And so much we could talk about in these verses but the basic picture is God is calling Ezekiel as a prophet to do two things one to prophesy about the city. So to speak the words of God and to tell what God has said to him to the people and then second to demonstrate these words with his life. He's specifically talking about the punishment of the House of Israel the punishment of the House of Judah, basically God's judgment on Israel and Judah and how he would take action specifically lying on his left side for three hundred ninety days. On his right side for forty days representing the number of years associated with judgement punishment toward the House of Israel and the House of Judah we don't know specifics of how this would play out like for all those three hundred ninety days on the left side and forty days on the right side. But basically. Lying there for long periods of time on those days, unable to turn from one side to the other as a demonstration is an illustration is a picture of the words he's speaking. Now, how does that lead us to pray? Why want wants to think about our lives, your life, my life today this week. So again, we're seeing this over and over again, there unique things about Ezekiel Old Testament prophets but there are also parallels to our lives as women who have received the word of God and have the spirit of God and us have been commissioned to proclaim the word of God, not just with our words. But with our actions with lives that are fluctuation of the words, we proclaim the words we believe the words God has spoken. And Specifically. I was reading this and as I. WanNa lead us to pray I was thinking about people who are going through difficult times difficult circumstances. Could it be than even or difficult circumstances situations we walk through? That there are things we are portraying about who got is in the midst of hard times that are intended by God to be a reflection of the truth we believe. Of the word that we hold fast to just like we see in Paul throughout the New Testament saying I, fill up what is lacking in regard to Christ's afflictions. He's not saying that he experiences suffering in the exact same way as Jesus did, but he is saying that he shares in the sufferings of Christ he shows the supremacy. Of Christ, he shows the joy of Christ that even when times are hard and difficult and he is holding fast joy and peace and courage and confidence in the middle of that he is displaying Christ he is reflecting the word of Christ in his life. So God, I pray the you would help us all today to embody you word. To reflect your word, not just with our mouths Oh God. Yes. As we prayed recent days help us to reflect your word with our mouths helps to speak your word to give witness to your word to warn people of coming judgment to share the good news of Your Grace and gallery. Pray that amidst whatever is going on in our lives. Right now, you would help us to reflect your word in our lives. Guttering, we pray that you would help us to reflect your joy even in the middle of suffering. We pray the you'd help us to reflect your strength and our weakness. Gharib, we pray that you help us to reflect your peace amidst so much unrest. Around us. Maybe specifically in our circumstances or just unrest in the world gunnery prayed help us to reflect your piece. Got Re pray that our lives would be demonstration today and this week of the truth we believe and we hold fast to God 'cause you're a word to be clear in our mouths and clear in our lives we pray. In Jesus name. Amen.

Thank you for having me. I'm excited to be here excellent well and I put out the. Word among my travel blogger brethren and written and I don't think that this thing put a couple of weeks ago and said, I've got three missing states I missing Iowa Nebraska and Hampshire, and at least one person I think it was more than one said if you want Iowa have to talk to Sarah and why is that? Sarah. What's the connection to Iowa? Well I live in Iowa. I have lived here all my life and I live on I will farm I'm married the neighbor boy in two thousand eight I started a blog and it was in two thousand thirteen that I really dove into the travel side of things. But the one thing that I realize is a lot of people didn't know a whole lot about the mid West or my home state of Iowa in. Most people don't realize that I will has beautiful cornfields and soybean fields we have that, but we have a lot of other amazing things and that's why you need to come to Iowa to visit and we're GONNA get into all of those today and I can't wait to share I. Clinical Slices a paradise will normally ask why someone should go I. Think you jumped into that one ahead of time anything else you would add to that I will surprise you I think the art, the culture, the scenic byways will blow you away. You could spend probably one home month exploring Iowa's scenic byways and I think that's pretty darn. Cool excellent will and where are you going to take us to what you're gonNA recommend where we starting. Well, let's start and do and. North, central. Iowa. Route, which is near where I live. I live near Mason. City. Mason. City Clear Lake and we're GONNA go to Charles City those three towns there, and then he can go up to forest city where you can see we're winnebago motorhomes are made. So you start in Mason city, Mason cities, a great base camp, and I would recommend that you stay in the park in hotel. The parking hotel is the last known hotel in the world designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Can stay there. Okay. People come from all over the world to Mason City Iowa population twenty six thousand something. So I have to Mason City, but I stayed in the holiday and see this is my mistake. You need to come back and see if the. I'll give you the grand old tour I. Didn't know he had designed any hotels. That's true. The first thing people say to me is Oh I don't think I could afford to stay there. and. I'm telling you that rooms at the Parken Hotel in Mason city. Iowa. Are Very affordable. I'm talking one twenty, nine to one, fifty, nine at night in a historic hotel. Designed by Frank Lloyd. Wright. I mean that is amazing. So when you're in Mason City, you want to do the river city's sculptures on parade, which is a sculpture walk, and it's always fun because I travel a lot and you know these artists that create these sculptures are all across America and maybe some of you've seen the Humpty dumpty sculpture that's around. I. Know I'M Thinking, the last place I saw one was in Mesa Arizona Okay I just have to take a Selfie with it because I'm like here's how you know Humpty kind of manages to be wherever I am but the sculptures are really a nice walk because they also take you through the Rock Glen area in Mason City, which is where there are other Frank Lloyd Wright designed homes. So is not only the hotel. There's other homes there as well and McKnight or art museum is a fantastic museum in town. They have the bayard puppets, Baird Marionettes, wizard of Oz the marionnettes that we're using the wizard of Oz are in the museum in Mason City and you can go across the street to Music Man Square we what puppets were in wizard of Oz are we talking about flying monkeys or what? Yes. Monkey is there okay it's a really Nice Museum but then you go across the street and you go to Meredith Wilson's boyhood. Home The music man. So, Meredith Wilson was born in Mason city. Iowa. And the Music Man Square has museum in there that is home to. Meredith Willson. So in the streetscape is in there and it looks just like in the movie, but you would envision it. So that's pretty cool. Meredith Willson he's also buried in Mason City and you know what? There's a lot of people that look for famous people were buried. You know who knew a lot of people cemetery tourism is kind of a big deal but then you go, let's go estimates saying you've already Charles City and get to Whitewater rafting most people don't think of Iowa and Whitewater rafting. And you can do that in Charles City Iowa. In Charles City I'm not sure eight, ten thousand people maybe. And you can stay in a luxury cabin there at red? Cedar. Lodge cabins that are overlooking the river great place for extended families to stay. But you've got the river
