"Us a little bit about what you're doing with delvina because it has great so actually delvina We've had a relationship with delvino. Almost since i started off actually now nearly six years. I know but russia the beginning i i. I don't know how it was. But i started talking to the coordinator delvina. The first thing was that she said that it was a real problem for them. Getting things people wanted to donate things but they obviously don't want to give away the address because it's really sensitive thing so i said well people can just donate and drop them off at us. So that's actually being what's happened ever since so whenever anybody wants to donate or we ask for things like you know occasionally weaver televisions or whatever. They just donate into us. at christmas. We get inundated by toys and presents for children and the other thing we've been doing Since covid as well because actually don't know people probably don't realize dalvin is being full absolutely full one or that one of the negative repercussions of covid one of the many negative ones nine increasing domestic violence. That's that's absolutely right. And in fact They delvina is run by an organization called manly warringah women's resource and i know that they've had to open another house. Because of the demand and and we were actually asked for nappies for new booms which that kind of upset me a lot to think about that so we were able to get all sorts of donations for delvina specifically for babies and for the mothers but one of the other things we were able to do was we. Were up to channel. Some of the amazingly don't Generously donated food goods. You know tens of chew tomatoes pastor you name it. We got donated. Oh keeps toilet rolls right at the beginning. We were overwhelmed by toilet rolls but we were able to then let delvina essentially the coordinator just came in. And we just take whatever you want and the other thing we go was. We had a very generous donation from harris farms and they were sending boxes of fruit and vegetables through the hunters hill office. Whether is a there has always been food bank which is interesting but a lot of the food. The fruit and vegetable came to us and so we were able to a week. Give delvina huge box of fresh fruit fresh vegetables and because it was from harris farms it was very good so so yeah i think i think we're sort of like a sleeping partner with delvino i would say every year. We help publicize in the helps promote the sydney community services for dr and there's always i very festive shopping. Caught putting the bottom of this. Is that on again this year. And how do we do. So yes this. Yea where we're going to partner with. Wis will put the cart at the bottom and it will be covered intent soul and last year. I think we were emptying it. Every other gay people were so generous and that was just brilliant because we do hampers for some of our clients and some of the more disadvantaged people in langkow. And we're able to. You know i thought to to the hampers and that people got lots of nice things like chocolates and special stuff. Joe one of the major ways that you raise funds is through one of lancashire's much-loved institutions village observer. Now the village observer had to take a break during covid as lots of publications did it's back bigger brocher embitter and also i've noticed available throughout lane cove. Can you just quickly tell us a little bit about about the tv. Oh and where people can get it. Yes so village. Observer is is actually owned by us through our foundation and we used to distribute it and daughter door but really that was quite expensive thing to do and when we closed down one of the things we had do was look at the costs because advertisers retired. Hasn't been doing too well so it's been quite difficult to be able to marry up the costs with production and also With the quality issue the standard. That we really expect so we have now gone to drop off points and there are forty three drop off. Points throughout lane cove in greenwich and over hunters hill. The main parts to to pick it up really going to be at outside calls analogy and woolworths there the main bins but you can find them all over the place at the at the swimming pool at the count saw a lot of the coffee shops taking it news agents to pharmacies Eve you can't find one you want to know where your nearest point is and give us a ring on nine.

"In the club stays in the cave. Jill bat is the ceo sydney community services. Such an invaluable organization within the land cove council area and the hunters hill area. Hi jill how are you. Hello jackie yes i'm fine. The sydney community services has so many different services you offer. We have a whole range of support services which really designed to help people stay at home so that goes from things like home. Modifications building people ramps putting in bathrooms and kitchens are actually modified for them. We do maintenance. It can go from replacing a lightbulb. Which we do for free or a cycle on we then also have Nurses who provide community nursing and if necessary will going every day we give people showers. We do meals on wheels. We do linen. Which is i think one of the most valuable services which is giving people fresh clean sheets and bedding and towels every other week then. We also offer podiatrist for people who can't get out medical transports if you need to get somewhere. We do respite care for people who have maybe got elderly parents who know looking after but need a bit of time away from them a day off so we we provide that we we do Group services for people with disability obviously servicing. The elderly is very important. But you also do. People who've got time disabilities and disadvantage people within the community We do trips as well. We take people out. The bus trip already means to help anybody who disadvantaged in the community. I'm generally. It's not through our sort of main funded services but a lot of people in. Oh probably don't realize that they are actually living alongside someone who has got a great front. But maybe he's actually doing it quite tough and We we do get to know about that and where we can. We try and provide support an aid and you know help them out as much as possible so we get off funds from a range of different organizations. We get some funding for supporting older people from the federal government. We get support for some of our more community services from the state government and then we get a significant amount of sport from lane cove council hunters hill council and also ride counsel. So there's those three different forms of support most of the age and disability support our does come through grants from the federal government and they have all sorts of strings attached at acquittals and all sorts of things that we have to do in hoops increasingly more more hoops. So the way that people now access our services is generally having to go through what they call a gateway a gateway is either which is online or you can do it by phone and then fringe for people with disability through the end. Ndis so how do people access the service you can either email and that's support at sydney c. s. dot org. You could phone us on nine. Four two seven six four to five. We just pop in And also we do have another office. At forty six glades will road in hunters hill. So generally just pop in and callers. We can then work out exactly. What sort of support you need. And it might be face to face or it could be on the phone. That's what i thought. Because i've i would personally think that it's best just to contact you first and then you can give them the help and tell us how that would contact you first. So you're located in the little straight car park building pottery green building. If you are having problems or you don't understand what you're supposed to do come to us and we will actually guide you through it. So when covid nineteen hit you. And i had a lot to do with each other homemade basically meant that we had to completely redesign almost everything we did. We and that was without a lot of guidance. To be honest with you so we started from the about the end of january when it first started to raise its head we actually had a staff member who was returning from china and there wasn't really that much guidance around what do you do so we then took A decision was that she should stay at home. We would continue to pay her if she could work at home than that would be fine but she's a disability support worker so it's not a lot of things that she could do but the board very quickly made that decision that nobody at sydney community services would be stood down. And so that meant that we had a whole load of Staff who we up to redeploy so might have been things like contacting individual people who might normally come on. Groups might have been providing online shopping access for people that don't have online. But we could actually get spots through coles and woolworths have been just simply going around and doing the shopping for them. A lot of it was just around Providing comfort and contact for those people who are on their own having somebody they knew i from sydney community services. Ring them up and just say are you actually all rights. You know what is it you need. Have you got someone you can talk to someone doing your shopping. Then there were other services like meals on wheels where we are dependent on volunteers and we were a little bit worried because some of own are actually over seventy so they were kind of at risk. We were concerned that we wouldn't have enough people to deliver the mills and in fact that was it was fine there. The volunteers have been utterly brilliant and we made them jump through hoops as well. There's all sorts of training. We've made them do. They've had to wear masks. Whatever the linen volunteers that's the people that go in and change people's backs to begin with. We just thought that's a really does. That's a really intimate for someone because you got to go into somebody's home and into the bedroo- so initially what we did was we made arrangements to just leave clinton clean linen for those people who had a relative who could do it for them. I'm where there wasn't anybody. We actually sent the nurses in so we have like Five registered nurses who work at sydney community services and to personal care workers and we just added linen service onto what they did because they could go in full. ppa and that worked brilliantly And so he's been things like that. It's just changing the way we did things. And because i was being inundated with people in lane cove because it's such a volunteering spirit asking how they help vulnerable in the elderly so you and i decided that the best thing was to introduce them to you because it was so much better for elderly or vulnerable people to have a volunteer organization that had a a brand name and people trust rather than just a very very nice volunteer knocking at the door. Because it can be a little bit. Tom distressful and we worked together to do. Food drives get volunteers and we also worked on getting Some supplies delvino women's refuge. And can you just tell.

I came back and brisbane seem just a little bit provincial. But what happened was that i then tried my lack in sydney i came to see me and I actually this. It's an amazing story. But it's the it's true story. I took my portfolio and i walked into the sydney opera house and met mr brown. There who said let's see you work. Looked my work. And he said yeah. Thank you works great. You said by the way out design news about to leave on maternity leave. Would you like to start monday. And that's absolutely true. What happened so i went. I went straight from coming from brisbane to sydney and working on bennelong point. Doing the conquest pastors incredible thing about about working at bennelong. Point is that you ever looked up. It was the queen mary. You didn't got a little plaza because of you is so amazing of course You know i met my beautiful wife tutti down here. We both just come back from overseas and I i went to this. I had a girlfriend down here. I went to a party. And i saw two the across the crowded room. I actually looked over. And i saw her standing hidden and shoulders about pretty much. Everyone there and she had beautiful long hair. Talk here all the way down a back up to tatum. And i i said i don't know who but i've just got to take you out. She was with her live in boyfriend. Who had a chest like a slab of concrete. I mean he was a bodybuilder. So and Live in boyfriend tutti But even so. I mean she did come out with me. We have the best first date. Anyone could ever have We went to a little. Spanish restaurant was downstairs. I remember in george strait and we dance to lee early morning. So we we. We really hit it off and a week later to said to her mother. You know if if i marry anybody. I'm married this guy and that did happen. Well you've certainly been missed a commitment. How long have you been married. Now we've been married. Forty three years celebrated their forty third winning anniversary in in february and But we've been together forty four years and so you you're in sydney you aiding spanish at george strait at. How did you get to lane cove. We ran a business. Call the bene- creative group and we started in a no sydney. then we moved to synods. Kids came along says he came along. We had one sort of little tiny creep space for one child and of course when when they can daughter sonia came along. We moved so we moved marie street in lane cove and then As kids got all the week we then moved to where we now kuru road and we've been there all these years so we when we arrived. We were the youngsters now with really oldies poll. I would describe you as a complete creative person any recommendations for people that are created. Because you're a musician. You're an artist. How do you follow your dream. How do you follow. Your dream costs that such a good question. I think what one needs to do is simply be who you are and that does take courage and often takes courage. They're all kinds of influences impressions on people. There are prejudices Their ulterior motives and people can can say something to you but when they actually mean something else and two. If you like somehow navigate through what a what a very difficult obstacles very often to that point we can say yes. This is who i am. And i'm proud of this and i'm just going to be this and i don't care what other people think. That's such good advice now. What we really want to hear about is that there is a that is opening gallery langkow and for those who don't know there is in fact an art gallery in lane cove. You'd be surprised. People don't know and it is across from the lane cove library and your exhibition is called clouds zones and tell us a little bit about it of clad science and really ties if you like my in with my music because a lot of musicians understand what the zone is and i mean i. I love that interview that that key. From all instance. One student then interview. I asked him so. Tell me what do you think about when you play and keats. It don't think i feel and you know that's really what this what the essence of my show is about. Because what i'm trying to do is somehow juxtapose. This idea of the musician being in the sun with the idea of actually looking at clouds and just thinking higher thoughts. My whole show is geared towards an understanding of high consciousness of getting out of the mundane. If you like if you like the manucher of what life is about we live. We live a life of minutiae in the sense that we have to work. We live in society. We're one must make money to survive. And so once focused to the very large degree is on those. If you like things that are necessary for existence in a if you like an economic environment however is a part of their brain which loves to be free. Which would love to be able to think higher thoughts to think about those things that are actually going to make one a better person if you like And that's what my show is about. I don't even call it a show. I call those an installation well. I've got forty paintings on top of the forty paintings or cloud paintings. I also have a cloud sculpture. Which hoping to have in the forecourt of the gary and there are also painted. Mannequins zero free standing for mannequins. painted so-called the cloud women and. There's also one wall mounted cloud sculpture as well in the center of my show. I have a spice which. I'm calling the reflections on and i've actually created if you like hexagonal space with chiffon walls that hang down you walk into this space and you look up and there's an hexagonal painting but it's going to be mounted on the ceiling and it really just look up micro. Wish it's never too late. The show begins on the opening. Night is on the ninth of december. It runs two weeks prior to christmas and then two weeks after christmas. So i think i'll have a second launch perfect opportunity. Pull you look like emmanuel patty. So i can imagine that two launches would be just down your zayn. Well i hope you. I am coming people by the paintings. Oh absolutely they're all socil-. I'm hoping that people will buy the paintings. Not because they want a pretty picture on they will but because they want to if you like engage the philosophy behind what. I'm trying to do which is to raise consciousness. What happens.

Jill bat who is the ceo of sydney community services. Now not many people in line carve have probably heard of sydney community services. What they do is they are look after the elderly and unreliable inland code and hunters hill and during covid they. This services were and were needed. You'll be amazed at the how many services vialva and this located in the pottery grain building. Or as. I like to call it the little street car park. And once you hear about what they do you will want to be either involve Donation or become a volunteer looking forward. Podcast right in the cause in the know in the news. Rob this little. Bit of news about nearly every sub. Let's quickly whipped through it because there hates of details on dot com today you. Let's start with line. cove north. Get ready for more construction in lane. Cove off a new development with thirty seven units opposite mowbray public school which has been approved by the land and environment court in the land council And so that will be going up and also to six story. New-generation boarding houses is side being approved by the land and environment court. Now at the moment there's lots of construction happening in lancaster north with lots of of tracks and noise and that's creating a little bit of an issue. There is also in length of itself on twenty eight long road or as i would like to epping road but it's actually longueville road. There's also a new generation boarding house which has been a da's being put in and the lane cove planning panel has just knocked that back. Which means they could appeal to landon environment court. So in longueville kingsford smith oval is an incredibly popular sport. Sports oval for soccer and cricket is also popular with dongguan. Is who can have their dogs off leash win. Sport or training is not taking place. It's available for dogs and their owners all day really because there isn't spoiled on and then certain times after three o'clock the problem is is that it is also used by council workers Quite a bit to prepare the pitch to mow the lawn. And they have an council has said there's been some incidents between dog owners and council workers so to ensure there is more supervision of dogs council has introduced a trial with the gates are open during the day till three o'clock and this has created issues because the lane of dog loves association has pointed out that although the council's a might be to increase vision. It's very hard for people like mothers. You've got kids and told listen dogs and elderly people to ensure they dogs. Don't run out the iron gates and so they've been lobbying to ensure that the procedures put in place to allow dogs and council workers to coexist in greenwich. i'd like to call it turf. Wars the bow campbell is a popular oval used for soccer cricket and for walking dogs and for walking and other form of recreational activities playing ball etcetera the safest of the campbell. Eva's always been a bit of an issue particularly for the greenwich sporting club because they're losing members because the state of the of the ivory is not really up to scratch with other idols. within the area. Langkow council has put together a proposal for a new synthetic oval to be put in place the issue with synthetic oils is. That means that people can't walk their dogs on synthetic levels and also means they're limited natural grass areas and a lot of people who have dogs or who are involved in sport aren't necessarily kane on synthetic or vols. They wanted to be to maintain it as a greenspace. The campaign is put the green into greenwich. And they want it so that it remains a natural turf. And they're saying we really want to upgrade the oval because greenwich sporting club. Needs a good ival. But what can we do to make this oval state of the earth. And that's where the council says that. There's nothing they can do because it doesn't get enough sun and a lot of people. Lobbying to just relocate whether it should be synthetic or whether we can make it the best turf oval imaginable. It's a tough one this turf war of apple sydney because Having a synthetic pitch works a lot. Better there's no cancellations. The everyone can play in the ryan and one of the problems with sydney without where the patent or sometimes it just rains and rains. And there's no spot for a while and when there is it gets destroyed by cricket soccer all those kind of things. this is a classic kitchen where you know. People of the council is going to have to make it balanced decision. That's a tough one. I noticed during the Greenwich hot trial. There are lots of signs about saving the oval. So it'll be interesting to see how this plays out. Yes it will. It's a hot issue. So they're just some of the things that have been making using lane cove. We have detailed on every issue. I mentioned on in the car dot com. Today you just go to the search by and putting the issue you want and they'll be articles feeder right up. There is something bogging you or something you want reported simply contact us on info at in the curved or condo year the lane cove council november monthly meeting on monday the sixteenth of november the lane cove council resolved to adopt the bob campbell master plan which does include provisions for synthetic oval prior to the meeting. The public form was packed with people who still were asking. The council to implement a natural turf oval and sporting groups also put their submissions about the benefits for them for synthetic turf oval. And this is the first step and council will have to take a review of environmental factors as pot of the next step.

"I don't know if you've ever read scripts or I've looked at them. I don't think I've read a full script. Yeah, exactly see cuz there's such a format that if you're trying if you give somebody a script as I read this, it's pretty good. Yeah, not talking about one of your own ones or whatever but just hear this is a good script and people just got can't really read that because it's just such a foreign thing. But when when you get in the habit of being able to read them, you know, because the only thing that's allowed to be in a script is what you can see on the screen off and what you know, what's actually happening either the visual picture and not too much of that either very brief description the action that's happening on the screen in the words that come out of the characters mouths it at you know, you're not allowed to say and that made John think about what you know several had said to the week before, you know, there's no place for that in the movie script wage. Very much allows the director and the actors to bring it to life and make it. Yeah, well durable. Yeah. Well it is it's just it's just a blueprint of fact, this is these are the things that need to be there for the story to be told now work with that and I think that's right the young terms of leave it if you if you're right something like and John, you know thoughts. He did last week. You see the way you can do that is put it in a flashback. But as soon as you start putting a flashback in a script you're starting to take to the director. This is a kind of movie that's going to have flashbacks off and they don't like that sort of thing to be directed to them. You know, they can make that decision to to a movie with flashbacks, but they don't want to see it in the first draft kind of thing. Am I getting too much cheese detailed spring this is great because I know I talked to a lot of authors who have been looking into screenwriting as either a secondary or you know, instead of birth. Wilson so and with there's so many stations and so many shows everybody's kind of like hey, you know, maybe I can get my stuff, you know option for a show dog. Yeah, this is great. Yeah. Well, it's it's if it's and it's quite different the you see the situation here is there's only two TV networks and and God. Yeah big production companies. Well, yeah, there's a big you know, Peter Jackson's got a big production company, but that's that's not really sort of open to local writers. It's a big basically an overseas company, you know wage in terms of what gets made and so it gets very difficult. I mean that's part of the reason that I gave up in the in because even though you know, I'd managed to make a living out of it for a 20 years it every time something finished. Like if you're a if you're you know, you're writing on a talk show and it gets picked up for the next season wage. You go. Okay. Well next year. I'm going to live reasonably well and and enjoy myself and I've got work and all that if it doesn't get picked up your right back to square one. You've got nothing on your unemployed wage and there aren't really any openings coming up because it has such a small business here. There are so few shows and things being made..

Garden, there was nice on the walls. The rooms were quite spacious. They were single rooms with their own weight and it seemed to be the best one that we could find, and once your dad was settled into the decided care home what did you and your mom start noticing about his k.? First of all, it was small things. So you know we noticed that he would be disheveled find him with food on his face for fear on his clothes that was clearly drawn and had been there for time that made me question whether he whether he was wearing the same clothes as the day before the smaller things grazes called SOS infections and things that that didn't seem to be being noticed and sire, we would sort of rise those and..

He was such a he was so sort of family on my side but as his patterns progressed, Hey, became quite competitive in in really unfortunate ways where he never had. been before an obviously that's that was hard for major delays. I think it I think he began to I. Suppose back on his life. Think of all of the things that he could have done didn't which was just absurd because he did more things than anyone I've I've ever known but one of the things that he loved never had done much was writing. And when I started to sort of publish my first poems and then my first Book Dad's Brian. Just kind of seized on that and he became quite competitive about it. You know he would compulsively sort of Google his own name and because he published quantitative research. Dad used to bait the Holland. Bet that would come up when you when you googled was he had this whole career of engineering research that then when I started to publish things suppose you know my name would come up at because the things I was publishing minimal recent whatever and he became. He became quite competitive about that, and then ultimately became a intent on the coming. He said to me I'm going to become the famous Holon Bat not year, which was just not bad at all, and so he he said told me that he was going to rush a novel to become more famous than I was and bearing in mind I'm not famous poet from the Gulf Carter's. And poets in this country. Not Not celebrities by any stretch So that's a little disclaimer little caveat but yeah, he became he became obsessed with this idea of nine. Some way overtaking May and so he he said he would rush novel and then he did he in ton oval for about a year took him a kind of science fiction novel, which was very sort of it was a Michigan commentary on. What was going on in his life that the protagonist was the kind of sixty eight year old metallurgical engineer from Leeds exactly locked dad who could control the universe with his mind. So the very moment that dad was losing control of his life, he was rushing of narrative in which he was gaining control of his life and in which he was in fact in control of the universe. In the novel mom doesn't exist in either antiques city grocery hockey. Out. In the novel he sort of saves the galaxy. A science fiction novel and it was it was the most surreal thing that's ever happened to me in my entire life to have dad do that and did you talk to him about it? The fact that it was his live but without you without your mom I did but you know it's funny. He sort of lifting. He lived in that world a little bit for a while and sometimes he would talk and it was almost as he was talking within the world of his novel did his attitude to money change at all and that's a common thing for people with Parkinson's. Yes. Some people with Parkinson's. Can blow up their entire life savings could become compulsive gamblers. Dad Fortunately was not quite that bad but he did he was able to to use the Internet and go Internet shopping for a very long time, which can be quite dangerous if you're not totally in control of what you're doing and buying. So against the apex of this or the culmination of this was when dad decided to buy vintage Jaguar car on Aba site on sane which was around the time when when I was thinking that it was soon soon, he would have to surrender his driver's license..

Now, that used is They had this beautiful place right in the heart of London I mean what? An extraordinary shift from from the mom who just grown up living in Peru and then whipped in gasoline and visited mountain is and then all of a sudden was in the center of London. So why wouldn't you born into this salubrious flat in the heart of London Sarah because dad had made a promise to my grandfather my. Grandfather said you know you have to bring her back and so dad dad was very kind of he fulfilled his word or wise and so he brought them home they lived there I think hunting for three or four years in the end in London and apparently cried on the plane my because she didn't want to come back to a strategy. She'd she'd really adopted laughing with gusto including a very affected accent. which which still survives because back, then you would send these little this little micro cassettes, a little micro kind of types mom and dad would send little micro cassettes to two two MOMS parents back in a strategist telling them what was going on in England and listen to them, and my mother sounds more English than the is sites hysterical that have been very very quickly mom and she was devastated to come back because she loved life overseas but doubted promised to her father and so he brought her home and. And they went from London to the Gold Coast, would you believe a pretty shock? Why not going coast? So Dad had dad had gotten a job at a minerals minerals company called mineral deposits on the Gold Coast and so they moved there and you know back then the goal coast was a backwater pretty much and my grandfather used to say you could you could have a picnic down the middle of the main road the highway because.

"Do you think she was a little taken aback by this declaration? She said no five. So did come to Brisbane and she said no about five times before he finally wore her down and apparently he just kept repeating that he'd never been more sure about anything in his live and that he knew that he had to marry her and so know laid a pretty kind of relatively sheltered life. She finally ever lived in Queensland think she'd ever even traveled into state and he was basically will strange kind of insisting that she marry him come to England to leave with him and you know it was probably a pretty attractive proposition things. Was He's out of character feel dad do you think was spontaneous kind of impulsive person like that? Absolutely not. So the funniest part about this is that dad was forensically organized diligent systemic of pedantic sentence like. Spontaneous is not an adjective that I have I. Think of my dad at all but you know he just he just knew and so he kind of wore her down and came to visit and Brisbane, and met her family and family were absolutely nonplussed to to save his title stranger basically asking for her hand in marriage but she said, yes, and so they first met in August by September they were engaged and then. Dad had to fly home because he had teaching to do. It was an academic and Imperial College London that point and so he flew home to. England and by January, mom had married him in London if you can imagine. So from August to January die met got engaged mom packed up all of her Ashley Belongings and got on a flight to London to marry a total stranger that's a risk on her part to. Here and her family could only afford to send one relative with her. So the parents couldn't go to the wedding because it was really prohibitively expensive to fly to London back then, and so mum's mum my grandmother went on the plane with mom to London and yet she got married to the strategy and you know what they stayed. Married fifty years. It's extraordinary. What is it you? They saw in one another especially your dad. But then you mom fairly quickly to what did they see to? Know that that connection was worth pursuing despite the distance and the relative lack of familiarity with one another. I think part of it for mom, and this is a very funny, very comic con of part of it because mom's not a superstitious person or not nora kind of spiritual person particularly. But a couple of months before she'd met Dad, a friend had taken her to a psychic just for fun just laughs and the psychic had given her a rating that said in a moment. This point had no boyfriend whatsoever and and the socket gave her a rating that saying that she would marry a man who came from overseas who wore a white cars and you had many letters after his name and Dad's last name is Holland. And he had a PhD in all these meals. Got Get. In a sense. I think when mom put those two things together it felt a bit like it was kind of predestined but they had beautifully complementary personalities. Mom is incredibly gregarious probably the most extroverted person I know. Just a celebrity everywhere she goes because everyone knows ginny that kind of person whereas dad was more introverted morsels scholarly in studios but they just had picked kind of synergy and and lots of very on coincidences born on the same day essentially mom was born on the twenty sixth of my dad was born on the twenty fifth but due to the time difference between England and stray actually born on the same day exactly ten years apart..

"Laying in front of the train. A ruined win now. I just need another plan and without thinking I just I hung up the phone with my mom. Aw I closed the phone I toss the phone out of the window and then I open. I looked at my friend. I said F. This. I opened the passenger side of the door. And then I jumped out. And that's when you boom hurt the boom and then I doubt before you did the what did you feel. What's going to happen to you of you? died at this disappoint because I grew up in religion in church every Sunday and Monday and all throughout the week so my religion taught me to fear. Fear like everything they told me to fear God to fear Hell and that's all they talked about was hill. So I if you breathe the wrong way like you'RE GONNA burn in Hell. It seemed like they talked about how all the time and being suicidal as I was in the way my life was going I was like you know what screw this. I don't care whatever happens happens it was that bad I say even if I burnt fraternity nowhere will be. I mean that even be that. That'd be the same thing that's going on with me right now that I was suffering everyday anyway so then you had the boom and you. Where did you go? Did you have thought thing in the near death. That's experienced. The people often thing that you would hover over your body and watch what was happening to the happen yes I act. That's exactly what happened I ended up in this light. Black like void. I didn't really know what was going on before I even left. Actually I As I soon as I blacked out I was going to get up and something kept telling me I wouldn't do that if I were you. So I felt like a struggle struggle of going outside of my life. I didn't know I was going outside of my body. I thought I was just getting up but as I was as I got all the way up. I see my body laying on the floor if in boom I'm in the mid mid air like in this boyd and That's when I heard of God you got praise. A scene got like presence. I didn't see his actual face and arms and all that but I felt his presence and I heard him I like I heard him like doc through like my ears and my heart. So did you feel at this time or any time. This was was the Krisztian God. Would you say it's just a a great powerful Source of energetic energy I subscriber the presence was so strong that basically what you were taught as a child comes back to he was like. Oh my God this is exactly what they were talking about. But you felt that supreme being you felt it and it was so powerful you just know. There's no running away from it. It was a it was love. That's that's what it was. It was just beaming light and love. There's a sentence in your book. I'll just read it and then because I wanted you to go over this a bit. More detail You say when I refer to Goethe's is my own lots of simplification to I felt the most motherly love from God. Who is still the most macho man ever? So how'd you join those two things things together okay. Well the Muslim beside came goal the first the first presence I fell from his dominance the male side as a I think it's definitely a male and the first thing that the presence was I am God yes I am real yes. Angels reveal their gift from me. You WanNa meet him. I said no because I didn't believe in angels and Then after after that as God perceive are being a God source. Whatever you WANNA call Vic Tell me more things like I love you. I'll go to into the world so everybody's with need. Basically saying he wants everybody to be with them. And that's when I basically seen the motherly side died when I felt the presence. Dropped down on the screen. You give me a huge hug. And I didn't want that feeling to our that being to like go. And so that's the mobility filling but it was it was beyond mothers of. Did you feel a toll that was any kind of judgment towards you. Because the way you'd ended up in that place. No no I honestly was not judged at all Oh of course I thought I was going to be but I wasn't a light source. Scott cy source kept telling me. That's why he snaps his finger. Then I meet my Guardian Angels and they'd in judge me they kept telling me to be They kept saying. Don't be scared. It's it's okay. Don't be scared we love you. It's okay we're not gonNA hurt you in that position. Did you see them. What what did they look like my guardian angels? I seen now I see them. Yes I honestly seen them as I would see anything else so they were about maybe eight feet five to nine tall. I'm sorry a feet. Six to nine feet tall something like that and were huge one On my right side had A Red Flannel shirt with the Ritz with the sleeves rolled up to elbows and blue jeans on and Brown curly hair and he was like a really it really but like you can tell he works out a lot or something. My cat a lot of. Musk Leo's really muscular. And then the one on the left side will soar like the beadle needle type creature with wings they both have wings by the way and A OIK wings and They were out long skinny and the one on my right side swings were like long in then they have names. I honestly did not want to know their names until I. I told them this. I told him I don't WanNa know your name until I see again because career ready knew what they looked like. So I'm like I want something to look forward to. Don't just bill all the T- yet like I want something to look forward forward to when I see you again and so when you were in that void where the other kind of spiritual beings there other entities or even people people who died in the past on no this was just with my glory I was just strictly seeing Guardian. Angels 'em they actually we As they were talking to me they tell me to look down look down way on the concrete and they zoomed him like camera. And I'm like wait. How am I here? But my body's down there like this stuff really happens and I was really really looking at my body and I was looking at the an the paramedics over me and the friend I was with. She was often side on her phone. It doesn't sound like she was being very caring where she calling the place or something. No this person I S. that crossed my mind to a lot like when I think about it on my ga- like she was really on her own. When you are in this void I was your perception perception? How was your eyes? Saw in your hearing. Perfect yes so much better than is now yeah. The colors are perfect. Hearing hiring is perfect division you can see miles and miles and miles away and when you saw the angels. Did you feel that. They were presenting themselves. It was in a particular way for you on that. They could have presented their image in any way they wanted. I really do. I believe that the imagery that they showed you then. Do you know there was a what reason they chose them I don't I I haven't asked them about that. I just know that they want to come. Make it simple as they can't something I will relate to so they can get my attention because it was like a rushing kind of thing for them. They're like okay. We need to go in just less introduce ourselves to cause he's GonNa Cross. Oh because there was his clout in a whole if I were to go into that whole aloe went to like a- paradise slash heaven place in who knows if I would've came back so their main objective was hey. Let's get him less convinced him to go back and spread right love and help people so they wanted you to come back for that particular reason yet because They told me they said you have a lot to do for. So it's not your time. You have a lot to do for so many people the whole in clouds that you describe. Could you see what was through on the other aside. No it was just light. It was just like that you know leads to that light basically makes you makes you. I guess it makes you finally believe that there is a afterlife for the person doesn't believe in an afterlife. I was that person I eventually grew into that person. That believes that whatever happens happens. I don't care when you die and yet there's a whole nother by after we leave here so that's why I don't really say eight people die. I think people want you sit. There was no judgment from God but did the the angel. Say anything about. Don't go there. What did they say anything about? What led up to you getting there? No not at all. They said nothing. Nothing about what I did all the told me was. It's Okay we love you. It's okay. Don't be scared now did communicate. Was it a talking telepathy or something telepathy. Basically what ends up happening is okay. You're thinking of a question there in your head. They're answering that question back in their head like so the way they speak to you. They you hear what they're saying in your mind in you feel the emotion behind it with your heart so like if they're mad if happy of their serious if you feel that emotion in your heart and yet they send like you can hear you. You can basically read what they're telling you from their mind to your mind and vice versa in that that's in you don't really have up to use words. That's the whole the whole telepathy process. It sounds like a much more effective way to communicate than we have in. Our normal lives. Lives definitely in a lot of us. Do it in our normalizing don't even realize it. How would you describe these angels than would you say that they were in any way religious or perhaps they were beyond that? No I just I do. I just know they're light. They had so much light on them that they had they don't know about this whole so they know but what I'm saying is they don't like the whole religion.

Let's start with something that every one of you would want a battery charger. First smartphone did, does it have to be charged before you can use it now we've all been there. We've run at a juice while we're out and about on our travels. We could spend twenty to fifty dollars for an external battery brick that connects to the smartphone. If we were smart enough to charge it up and take it before we left or in the case, Japan just slip into a seven eleven store and pick up one of these twenty dollar chargers that goes way further. There are already stocked with four AA batteries. Now you could get more power from one of the bricks, but you have to recharge it again before you use it in Japan. There's a seven, eleven on seemingly every block in the city's. So access to external power is now available to everyone and so readily available for IOS or Android. So that falls into the useful category in the strange weird and maybe who knows category, two products that caught my eye from Panasonic. There's the battery powered leg air massager for the woman at work to where stylishly as a dress accessory and a cone of silence type contraption that knocks out other sounds and sights while at work more on that in a minute. Let's start with the leg massager. It's pink contraption that attach the both legs and the. A remote. You can now massage twelve parts of your feet and legs. It sells for around four hundred bucks for big spenders. You could pick up a button massager for eight hundred dollars. Now these products are currently only sold in Japan and Malaysia, but if interested listeners could pick up a used version on EBay, more interesting is this crazy quiet cone that attach is to your head. It's called wear space. It's a prototype for a product that might eventually come out the ideas, the blackout noise and more from your co workers. It's a use shape fabric that wraps around your face over some headphones, the phones block out the noise and the fabric blocks out what your co workers are doing. No pricing has been announced, but I can tell you this. I like wearing headphones, but not all day. I'm good for maybe a half hour and hour tops. I can't imagine wearing this. You show. Fabric for very long, eight hours a day. I don't think so. Now, meanwhile, you've probably heard me say the Japanese electric shops are some amazing places, a geeks, paradise, and their way larger than the ones we have back home with floor after floor of everything from cameras, phones and TV's two toilets, lighting and toys beyond what's new, what's really cool is how these stores are so large, they don't get rid of old products. You wanna fax machine. I can find you a whole lot of them. Many models at the iota Bashi Akiba shop. That's the world's biggest electron store. Remember many Devi camcorders while I haven't used once since two thousand and ten, but the store has several blank mini Devi cassettes available for sale. And after navigating eight floors of tech goods at Yoda Bashi going up all those escalators you know, that lake massager sounds kinda cool.

I'm back from my weekend, Japan and Batt on the podcasting beat think thank you to go when my Snyder enriched in euro for filling in for me while I was gone and speaking of that trip to Japan, I'd like to tell everyone about some of the more unusual as well as useful tech innovations that I saw during my travels. Let's start with something that every one of you would want a battery charger. First smartphone did, does it have to be charged before you can use it now we've all been there. We've run at a juice while we're out and about on our travels. We could spend twenty to fifty dollars for an external battery brick that connects to the smartphone. If we were smart enough to charge it up and take it before we left or in the case, Japan just slip into a seven eleven store and pick up one of these twenty dollar chargers that goes way further. There are already stocked with four AA batteries. Now you could get more power from one of the bricks, but you have to recharge it again before you use it in Japan. There's a seven, eleven on seemingly every block in the city's. So access to external power is now available to everyone and so readily available for IOS or Android. So that falls into the useful category in the strange weird and maybe who knows category, two products that caught my eye from Panasonic.

Linda Tepper of Crater Lake Klamath Regional Airport
"The heralded news news learn is now. Empowering the community. So the news, your news now with falls, Oregon. Podcast, empowering the community and serving mclamb basin. This is the URL the news facing these top. Readings in welcome to base and views a herald news podcast featuring interviews with local experts discussing issues important to the climate basin. I'm Cridland key with the herald news this week. We are joined by Linda tapper business manager for the crater lake claim at the regional airport here to discuss a wide range of issues related to aviation and the climate basin. Linda, thank you for taking time out of your day. Does to join us in glad to be here. We will get into all kinds of aviation related topics, but I, I have to ask about the airport name itself because how often each day do you have to correct people? Because I people just called the claim with airport, right? But it's the crater lake regional airport. It is. And when I first started with the airport, it was the Klamath falls international airport. So then we dropped in became the Klamath falls airport just for concise purposes. And then a number of years ago, we actually went to the crater lake Klamath regional airports which is quite the mouthful, but it was done too tight of tie in with a major attraction. We have. Hearing Klamath county, which is the crater lake national park and to gain some additional tie ins and traffic. Hopefully, as people looked at planning to come visit that park, how they would get here and be able to use the airport to do so. Well, before we delve into issues related to the airport ongoing right now, I always like to get a little bit of background on our guests. So could you tell us a little bit more about who Linda Tupper is? Sure. So I grew up for the most part in Oregon. Moved here when I was not yet to. So I'm almost an native Oregonian. I grew up in the Willamette Valley went to Oregon state university and then on to Portland state university where I got my MBA degree and then moved down to Klamath falls in ninety five. Oddly enough. My background is in animal science as an undergraduate degree. And then I have the my business administration degree from Portland state. So I was looking for a job in agriculture and unfortunately, I didn't find one, but the airport department had a department. Pretorial position coming open and my background. My father was a commercial airlines pilot for United Airlines for thirty five plus years. So aviation is kind of second nature to our family. So seemed to good fit and I applied for it and received the position. And I've been there ever since enjoying it immensely. It's very exciting field always something new going on, and I enjoy interacting with the public in all aspects of aviation that we encounter at our airport from generally VA, Asian to usually commercial aviation and military as well. We'll some of that roundabout stuff. I, my major in college was earn article science and so I- studied aviation now, Emma journalist, you started animal science and now you're in aviation, so however it works out, right. So how did you go from animal science into being involved with the Asian industry? So like as when I moved down here to Klamath falls, the airport department position came open. And it was seemed a good fit for me with the background. My family has an aviation and I recognize that probably for myself, it's a certain skill set that I enjoy using. So it didn't matter the industry, whether it's agricultural animal science or aviation or even medical. It was a certain skill set that I enjoyed using, which is organizational. Business skills, communication, writing, and things like that. So I sort of happily took to the aviation field, and as I got more involved in it really expanded that different types of duties that I was doing at the airport in became the business manager at that time. So what does your role as a business manager entail for a public airport for our airports since way are as small department. There is a staff of six. There's the airport director, the operations manager myself, the business manager, and then we have three operations maintenance positions that oversee the airfield upkeep. So for myself, I tell people that I pretty much manage all the paper that comes through the office. So everything from answering the phones to doing accounts payable, counts receivable to managing grants to public relations marketing. Those are all items that I take on on a daily basis. I'm also. Charge of some of the regulatory items that we are in sponsor for doing at the airport when it comes to the FAA for annual reports to meet our regulatory or grant assurances that we have through the FAA's. So a lot of paperwork sounds
