"bay area" Discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin

"Them kevin costner. Who's had a nice year. But the moment. I keep hearing this. I have friends that are giants fans. They keep saying this is their destiny. Feels like feels like it. Because you have all these older guys who are having career years in their mid thirties late thirties but to win playoff series. You just like the dodgers played this movie several times when they at the beginning of this run that they've had the marco have great regular season win a west coast and they'd get into a playoff series or a world series and they look up and the other team had three aces right and the other team had everyone come out of the bullpen. Throwing one hundred and they would have clayton kershaw. Who couldn't kwait do it or they'd have to squeezed four innings at five innings at a rich hill. Or they have to squeeze like they. Did you have the stacked pitching lineup that they do now. And so is in the postseason for some of these teams and to me. That's really what the divers have done differently. These last couple of years as i was just on. Tv in here They they had bueller sherzer and click and clayton kershaw was on screen. And then there's aureus. Yes i mean. So it's an embarrassment of riches. They're pitching but yeah. I mean. I've never disputed the fact that the dodgers are the better team on paper and they've performed. I can't say better than the giants because they're behind the giants right now but it's been equal and if i had to choose rosters i'd take the dodgers but when you start hearing that destiny nonsense coming out of there. They make believe they're better than what they are. Remember when it was the i think it was pat. Riley's heat when they did the all in thing and it was a bunch of vets and they all of a sudden they just caught fire and won a championship. Because yeah so a lot of stuff going on in la today and as you talk about the miami heat and they're going to win five not six championships. Right mean other heat team okay. That's the other famous team. I was coming off today this morning. At sea bomber in the clippers big groundbreaking. And i've got to tell you that that arena is going to be amazing. It is going to be this giant state of the art halo board like they have like an acre of lights like an acre of lights. I don't even know what that means. That sounds like it sounds like a lot so you think about it like thinking about it like a like a speed skating track so that it's going to be two sided halo instead of scoreboard. That's like a big box in the center. It's going to be a halo around the court and as gonna be really cool. Explain that again instead of a spare board. It's going to. Your board is usually like a big giant box. This is going to be like a ribbon foresight. Yeah it's going to be like a like a speed skating all the way around the track. Nice like every seem bomber. Pay two billion dollars for the clippers. And then he's gonna pay two billion dollars for this stadium if you think. But don't worry he's he like the man's is worth one hundred eight billion dollars. Not billion with a b. is he. He's got enough money to go up in space right. They said it was fifty. Five mil go up. you think. He's a space guy. I mean he do that anytime you want. And fifty five million to him. It's like five dollars for. I don't think he would. Because i think he's really obsessed big isn't he. He's six five fit. No no he's all about like the comfy seats like he's going to have the biggest seats at the arena and he's like really into like i gotta have enough bathroom. Everybody i mean these are like it's kind of fun but he's he's like he seems cool. Yes cool but like. I'm down there and i'm watching this so excited bomber gets excited like he'd just is excited by nature but then he gets talking about this and he started talking about championships. He's like we're gonna win a bunch of championships before we even get to this arena. And then we're gonna gets and we're gonna win solar. He's he goes where you send me like. Oh this is gonna be like that's really cool. It's awesome vision. And then he goes can be better than the hall of fame because we only championships house. Like i see how this happens. You get excited and you start talking and then you start saying we're gonna win championships and then you just double down on it and then you realize like i said at once i said it twice a month. We'll say it a third time and go even further you know. You uber jumped off a cliff into the water. Neither never well okay. Well i had aired even looking over the clinton too but like like he said when you start talking about champion once you'd like it once you jump and you're out in the air and there's nowhere to go but down you might as well have some fun. You know you're already out there you know. Yeah can't go back so you nuts about like so you're talking about leaving your and i get a little nervous too i get. I mean you heard me the day that you see supposed to. I'm always on masonite. See mason was supposed to lead his comrex. Dropped out right at the top of the show. We play this all the time. Because it's like hello. Hello oh it's just me talking. Okay wow here you can hear like career flashing before my. It's good no but see that makes you grow. You know when. I was a rookie. I was in san diego places getting ready to play. The chargers and the special teams coach was named wayne severe. God rest his soul. So i'm a rookie. I'm backing up sean gilbert. I'm also back it up on special teams that day and he walks while we're stretching this is stretching before the game like the chargers are out there. We're out there. The game's about to happen in like twenty minutes and he goes. Hey how you feel. I said i feel good coach. Ready to go. He goes good. You're leading the wedge today on kick return. Oh right okay. A- ask me how many reps. I took that week in practice in the wedge zero. Now i gotta go block the chargers in a wedge and i have absolutely no idea how to return this thing so that was nerves but we had a good day returning. So we're gonna have a good day today with me leaving show Happy one more thing. So these sherzer trade your into this more than i am. The max scherzer trade turner trade best trade. They've ever made best trade. The dodgers have ever made is. Is that just like now talk. Or is that for real the his dodgers. That's the best trade ever so far has been. I think it's a crazy thing to say because it sounds very hyperbolic like forever. Yeah people say. I think four times a week. He said it's the best day ever. You produce him every time. It was the best day ever since yesterday. Okay because that was also the best ever. I it has been. It has been though. If you think about how impactful shares are has been how impactful trae turner has been probably the best regular season trade. I've ever see now. But shouldn't we wait until the season is over..

What Needs To Happen for Newsom To Get Recalled?

"So let's just go through. If if gavin newsom gets recalled what would be the areas that have to do that. You'd have to have kind of the gay base in san francisco not turn out right. I'm not saying that pejoratively. It's just what it is right. You have to have the hispanic hispanic base in kind of la not turn out right and then you need to have a suburban one one eighty right. You need to have kind of the westwood yoga. Moms and the brentwood won't yoga moms. I mean and kind of like the pasadena. Professors be like not going to happen. And the reason i'm saying this though is that this really isn't uphill climb in california. You need like five different domino's to fall on my right. Yeah that that's a very realistic. I mean it's. It's good that we do that with viewers and listeners be realistic. It is a very steep hill to climb but the things you just mentioned we did see possible which is why it was close in. La for instance. Fifty one percent of hispanics told us in l. a. that were going to vote You know he should. He should trounce The opposition in la should eat at least thirty points out of there. Are we not seeing that. In the reason. Why is because a lot of the people who did tillis they were gonna vote. Were anti newsom. So outside in the county around ventura the suburbs. You was not doing well. And then you had san diego. For instance where if sandiego was a bigger margin for no or for Yes to recall him then. Probably means orange county would've been a little bit wider and it may have been a lead for a minute there but san diego was not as pro recall as we expected it to be or it needs to be so there are definitely five. Domino's maybe even more that you need to see fall of that white liberal base which is that bay area He needs to more inland hispanics for sure Central valley hispanics the working hispanic in the central valley. They tend to be more conservative in they do. And they're getting more conservative of the years but they for while were the most pro

Ben Simmons is not expressed that he desires that we know of yet. He desires to go to one California professional basketball team over another.

"From cutie. Today i want you to meet a couple of sandwich. Lovers sandwiches are kind of a big part of the culture of my family. That's lauren alexander. She and her fiance. Jonathan hilas love ordering those sandwiches on a specific type of bread dutch. Crunch it's like crispy and crackly on the outside and could of soft and slightly sweet white bread on inside now. Here's the thing about their now. Favourite bread neither. Jonathan or lauren had even heard of dutch crunch until they moved to the bay area. And when i tried it i was like wow. This is the best sandwich bread i've ever had. So they came to be curious with this very important question. We wanna know. Where does dutch french bread come from. And why is it seemingly only available in the vary. Move over sourdot today. Bay curious is bringing you a story. We first aired in two thousand nineteen. We'll take a bite of dutch crunch support for bay. Curious comes from sierra. Nevada brewing company family owned operated and argued over since one thousand nine hundred eighty proud supporter of independent thought whether that's online over the air or in a bottle more at sierra nevada dot com to get to the bottom of the dutch crunch origin story. We asked reporter. Amanda font to get crackling. I grew up in southern california but went to college. Sf state the first time. I encountered dutch crunch. I was at the ice in the student center. It was a revelation what makes the unique is the crunchy topping. That's baked onto the top of the role. That's what puts the crunch in dutch crunch. But what is it. I asked a professional. My name is mike. Mike rose and co owner of semi freddie's bakery on his business card. Mike lists his title as mad scientist because making great baked goods require scientific precision. I met him over at semi. Freddie's world headquarters in alameda for a tour and to see how they make that bread. The bakery is huge with a long row of enormous ovens dozens of hair net clad workers carry bags of flour or mix ingredients together. There's a whole walk in fridge filled with slowly developing sour. Go and as you can imagine. It smells incredible. But i'm here for the dutch crunch. So what are the ingredients in that crackly golden so delicious. I don't care that it's cutting the roof of my mouth. Special topping was topping our rice firewater. Sugar yeast oil and salt. All those things go into a big industrial mixer to be beaten into a paste. Meanwhile the bread dough is machine. Cut into square pieces that get rolled into sandwich size loaves on a conveyor belt. They get a final hand shaping as their set onto trays. They will the giant bowl full of topping. Mix over and scoop it into some pastry bags. Then they coat the whole top of each dough role in one smooth motion using a wide flat pastry tip in their raw state. They look like really pale. Maple bar doughnuts after being topped the pace. The trays of roles go into approved box and they were rise for several hours. You may have heard the term proof on the great british bake off the will been approved. It's been depraved depraved depraved. In this case we're talking about a warm slightly humid box where the raw dough can rise when the roles are baked. The topping crisps and snaps. Apart giving the roles their signature correctly. Look and now for a quick dutch crunch. asmar break just likely squeezing crackly topping. Now we know what makes the crunch but what about this dutch business. I asked mike if he knew anything about its origins I understand there's something called tiger bread. Bingo tiger bread is another name for dutch crunch. so called. because of its vaguely stripy pattern. I asked a friend of the show to pronounce the dutch translation of this name. Hi i'm neil's i'm from gunson. In the netherlands. I pronounce it tabled. It turns out dutch crunch. Aka tiger bread aka diabled isn't a california invention just borrowing the name of another place like the french dip sandwich it actually has dutch routes. That seems to go back to at least the early twentieth century in the netherlands. Erika j peters runs the culinary historians of northern california. I didn't know much about dutch. Crunches history in the bay area when you first got in touch with me and i was delighted to to get a chance to look into this. It's hard to trace the exact migration of tiger brad to the united states but it seems to have landed in the pacific northwest. What i found was that that's crunch as a term really starts in oregon around. Eugene oregon is is where we start seeing it in the nineteen thirties. That's right. the bay area was not the first american port for this beloved upon. The klamath news says the dutch crunch bread with delicious butter rice topping. So that is the. I mentioned that that i see is nineteen. Forty one to what makes it a dutch crunch. Bread newspapers ran. Ads for this delightful. New bread with slogans. Like it's fun to lunch on dutch. Crunch haven't tried this bread. Be to pick up almost for a real treat. Distinctive topping gives a delicious flavour. Which foreign dose to and within the decade bay area bakers began offering it locally but the california recipe wasn't quite the same. They're not doing that rice wash. They are instead using sesame seeds to get the crunch. We didn't start using the dutch crunch recipe. We know in love today until the early seventies. that's when people in san francisco start referring to making the bread with a rice flour. Wash the same as the people in oregon and in other parts of the country by then have been doing it. Turns out the bay area can't lay claim to the creation of dutch crunch and we don't have exclusive interest. I found it at a couple portland. sandwich shops. Tiger bread is still a thing in europe. And the new england grocery chain wegmans offers a similarly topped loaf. They call marco polo brad. However dutch crunch does seem to be more ubiquitous and popular in the bay area than anywhere else. It's not our baby but we raised it right. Can we get more of those crackly sounds. Oh yeah maybe we just chock it up to good. Taste that was reporter amanda font. Today's question came from morin alexander and jonathan hillis. If you're still crazy for carbs after that story you should check out our episode. About what makes san francisco sourdot unique will include a link in our show notes.

When Sea Levels Rise, Who Should Pay?

"We're beginning with a giant pile of dirt. Okay i'll go with it. i'll go with it. okay. It's not just any pile of dirt. It happens to be right outside of facebook's campus in the san francisco bay area where we're standing right. Now is the outboard levy of the facebook campus in menlo park. That's kevin murray. He works for the san francisco creek joint powers authority which is an agency that works on flood protection in the area. We're walking on top of that levee which surrounds the tech companies brightly colored buildings. So why does facebook need a levy. Well the company's headquarters is right on the shoreline of san francisco bay and over the last decade. They've built huge state of the art buildings on the waterfront. So the levy is protection from the bay. But kevin told me levy isn't exactly the right way to describe it because a levee is designed to protect people at has to meet engineering standards that ensure it holds up these don't those structures that are providing flood barrier now are not adequate and are subject to failure if we have a really big tide or a big wind event or a big storm surge so lauren did facebook know that when they built their they did and now the risk is getting even bigger because sea levels are rising in a hotter climate so the region is looking at building a bigger levee. Sixteen feet tall. It will cost more than one hundred million dollars and the federal government. Just preliminarily awarded about half that money. But that's raising questions about who should be footing. The bill for adapt into the consequences of climate change.

Google Plans to Expand Its Campus Which Might Become Unsafe

"Google is expanding its campus in the san francisco bay. Area the companies. Planning to build offices as well as housing and greenspace near the shoreline which is at risk from rising sea levels. And that's raising the question of whether building there should happen at all. Npr's lauren summer has the story as a city planner in silicon valley. Michelle king. here's all about one of the biggest headaches in the bay area housing. Oh my goodness housing. Here is extremely expensive. Sunnyvale has very high cost of living in may the median. Home price in sunnyvale. Where king works was one point. Eight million so the city is looking at a different kind of housing higher density. That's walkable transit and greenspace. It would go into a part of town called moffett park right now. It's just offices lots of low rise buildings with wide parking lots one of the most sustainable things you can do is put people where they work and put people where transit is so. This is a huge opportunity. This isn't just sunnyvale vision. It shared by one of the largest landowners. Moffett park google over the last five years. The company has quietly bought more than seventy properties. Here worth almost three billion dollars. Jeff holtzman is google's director of real estate development for sunnyvale. We're incorporating sustainability into everything we do in our developments and we're doing it to support our employees but also the community and hopefully the environment. Sunnyvale is in the process of rezoning the land to allow google to build new offices and housing and just to know. Google is one of npr's financial supporters. And there's one more detail the city is looking at. This land is on the shore of san francisco bay which puts it right in the path of sea level rise sea level rises already happened. I we've seen about a foot over the last hundred years. Christina hill as a professor of environmental planning at uc berkeley. We're standing on the edge of the bay where a high tide is coming in. Hill says sea level rise will make these tides even higher by as much as seven feet by twenty one hundred. But that's not the only problem there's also seawater in the soil under our feet the groundwater and as the c rises that to- of saltwater under the soil is gonna rise also

"In terms of really good archaeological records anyway or maritime people's seafarer peoples who had boats and who had come down the coast flash forward over the course of several thousand years as ice sheets melted sea level. Slowly rose water-filled what we now know as san francisco bay and at that time. Then you start seeing our early sites here the bay and those go back about five thousand years so at this point the ice age sabertooth cats would have been long gone but there would have still been an astonishing amount of wildlife around all the way up to the now extinct california grizzly bear and they would have been home to lots of sea otters which lightfoot says may have been hunted for their rich pelts overtime.

Burials some were huge around three hundred feet in diameter and three stories high. They would have taken generations to build up so long. That margolin thinks their use may have gradually shifted over time. There's some questions to visit. The dwelling places over ritual polices terrific. She really you know. She from generation to generation some people use it as ritual so people use it as dwelling many shell. Mounds have since been paved over in places like berkeley and emeryville. The old sites are now shopping. Centers and parking lots. even today. there are ongoing disputes and protests over this type of development. Maybe the best surviving example of a shell mound is in coyote hills regional park near the east side of the dumbarton bridge. But that was only open to the public on certain occasions as to actors question about what happened to the bay area's first people. It's a sad story.

She got through it and she's still kept our culture close passing on as much as she could to to everybody in our family around her and through those efforts that's how so many of us including myself grew up empowered with our culture. His family didn't speak true chania when he was growing up. Not even the elders then did but they remembered hearing their elders speak it. Medina says that along with the archives left behind has made it possible to reawaken the language over the last twelve years at one point. He didn't know a single person who spoke it and now a whole community is conversant and that shows right there in action. It shows how you can be able to have things back again that we might have not had a short time ago but that we were always meant to have medina's working to make indigenous culture more visible in other ways to he rents cafe aloni which serves indigenous foods.

Whether that's online over the air or in a bottle. More at sierra nevada dot com ecuador wanted to know some concrete things about the first people to live in the bay area. Who were the first inhabitants of this region. And what was it like for them. What happened to them. Are there any descendants. Left reporter daniel potter looked into actors. Questions hi daniel. How do you katrina so about that. Last question the people here today. It's really really hard to definitively trace that history back several millennia to before the end of the ice age. What we do know is that indigenous people have lived in the bay area for thousands of years and are still here it turns out not everyone likes the term descendants because descendants is something that puts us to be fragment of what we once worth so we prefer to call ourselves the aloni people up today and there's many aloni people that are alive today so horseshoe to he can occur cuts vincent medina. So hello good day. My name is vincent medina. I am in east bay. Aloni person medina's ancestors passed down stories of how the world came to be and how humans fit into it. In this tradition. The world began with a flood. There's a great flood where everything in the world was covered with water except for the two peaks of jewish talk. That's what we call melt. Diablo two stock literally means the place of the day. And there are god coyote. My he was the only figure that was alive during that time and they're mayan. Saw a single feather that came down and touch the water and out of that other came through hiwa or eagle and they became very close my on coyote in the reu. Hiwa eagle became best friends eventually. One day the water went down and the world as we know it began to be created. And there's these times before. Humans came to be everything was made safe for us. The conditions were made right for us but then when it was the right time we were created here immensly while here in the world was perfect for us to live here. Meaning that in those beginning stories before we arrived all those conditions were made possible for us to be here and it was at a time when it was safe when there is abundance there was food the way that we believe there were taught is also that it's not just centered on us as humans because there was life that existed before us where part of the story. But we're not the center of it. All this is one of many stories from the aloni nations. Almost everything we call the bay area from vallejo to big sur. That's all aloni land now within that there's at least fifty four independent nations. Speaking many languages like the one medina introduced himself in earlier called chino and beside aloni nations. The bay area is also home to me walk people's and others as to where the term aloni comes from medina says there are a few explanations sometimes people will say that it comes from the name of one of those smaller nations. I was describing on the san francisco in in salah phone. But we have another explanation for that in our family. Here in the east bay. We believe it comes from me. Walk term alone no aids which means people of the west. Now let's get to what it was like for people to live in the bay area. Thousands of years ago for that. I talked with kim lightfoot. A professor of anthropology at uc berkeley. And i direct our california archeology program. He says people were in the bay area as far back as the ice age which ended some twelve thousand years ago and at the time the bay area was not a frozen wasteland. The weather here was mild and the low sea level meant. The coast was miles further west than today. What's now san francisco. Bay was more like a lush river valley. But that time there was no bay. This predated the san francisco bay and people what he used that entire valley area that whole area along with whatever evidence. The folks there left behind. It's now underwater but people must have been around by then because there are signs of them. Further south some of the best oldest fines in california include stone tools for hunting and fishing on the channel islands off the coast near santa barbara the age where we have good records of archaeological materials. That have been dated With radiocarbon dating now go back. You know thirteen thousand fourteen thousand years ago. Lightfoot says there's not great evidence people here were hunting the mammoths and mastodons that were around at the time but it wouldn't surprise him in those early days. A lot of the menu was probably seafood. They earliest people that we have.

"I'm misunderstanding it, But, you know, just anecdotally. Seems like our weather is just weird. Like a lot of it. It seems more temperate. Then I remember like from my childhood. And yet when the day comes when it's going to be cold or when it's going to be hot man, it kills us with that is that normal for us are things changing. Well, what is normal for the bay areas that we have so many micro climate that you can find significantly almost dramatically different weather conditions in towns that are adjacent each other depending on you know the elevation how close they are to the coast.

At cal shakes there had been some conversations that were happening on facebook around. Only guys are all of these artists who've been thrown out of work all these performing arts workers who had gigs lined up. There were suddenly being thrown out of work or there. Are people working in a box office. There is no box office anymore and what could be done and was there a group that might be able to help. Oh theater bay area.

It's a huge event for the actors. But it's a huge event for the theaters as well. We get to see an awful lot of people all at once and they get to connect with each other to. There's a very big important social component of it so we're trying to connect people to opportunities and to resources and that's true both for individual artists and companies so for the last twenty something years.

Granting programs cash is our most famous when our flagship of our granting programs i was actually in a small organization and that was the first grant that i'd ever one was a cash grant which was during its initial roll out before i was a a staff member at tv. And i know how important that was to this tiny little organization that i was one of the founders of informing to get that money to be able to get a show up on its feet and for many many organizations over the last twenty years small organizations individual artists very often the first grant they get or one of the few grants able to get because grants typically go to larger budget organizations than very often. They're just not available to individual artists but the cash grants had them for twenty something years. And that's been a big part of what we do as well. and then we do professional development. We do trainings for folks in for companies as well as we do that.

Now online through our website into our biweekly newsletter. That we put out. We do hire journalists to cover stories in the field and when you say artists it's really actors actresses or someone who basically present says an actor if you will and then there's playwrights directors designers technicians. All of those folks end very much to the individual. Practitioner includes theater administrators. Who are trying to make a go of it and get started in a career or perhaps veterans as well so the entire ecosystem if you will so much of theater is about in person experience rights especially the auditions etc so how has covid nineteen impacted future bay area over this last year.

"Everyone it's Olivia Allen price and this is bay curious. This Friday is June nineteenth, but to many people. It's much more than that. It's June. Teeth a celebration of freedom. The holiday has been around since the late eighteen hundreds, but it may take on a new residence this year given the protest for racial justice happening across the country. A few major local employers have even made June eighteenth a paid holiday for their staff. Here at bay curious, we like to keep our eyes on search engine trends and we've noticed a lot of locals are asking what is June. Teeth so I up. We've got a quick primer for you from reporter assaults on a poor. For one weekend each year, thousands of people come together at the Lauren district in south. Berkeley, you'll see drummers traditional African clothes, street vendors, selling barbecue and an exhibit, documenting local black history is all for Berkeley's annual June teen festival, which the city celebrated almost every year since nineteen eighty. It some AB- rates the black experience. That's what I always tell people, Dolores not cooper has been organizing Berkeley's June eighteenth festival for the past thirty three years June teen stands for June nineteenth, and it was the day that general granger road into Galveston Texas on June nineteen, eighteen, sixty five, and let the slaves. They are know that they were free in. This was two years after the Mansa proclamation. This was the last group of enslaved people. People to learn, they'd been freed. The celebration evolved into June teams an annual holiday commemorating their emancipation delores says it's meant to remember the nightmare of slavery while celebrating the resilience of the African American community, we have to to our own horn and let people know that what we've done is significant without our contribution. America just simply would not be America so June teeth puts black joy and culture, front and center through food, frightening dance and music. The more you know, the more familiar you are, the better you feel, and it's not just. Oh, I like that music, and all I like the culture kind of thing, but just knowing black people as individuals.

"All of it? Wow Yeah in two thousand sixteen I circumnavigated Bay Area Ridge. Shell and I did it Just as far as with groups of friends so they're sections that I thought that high that Iran. I'm originally runner or anything. I running of the different channels here in the bay area. Since nineteen ninety three was my high school cross country team and over time it just became a passion Just love to protect these different trials that I enjoy Scarring through running. So I became a board member on the retrial and during the time period I was also circumnavigating and it was signing a each time I hiked or ran or bike Segment I always thought it was my most favorite section of the route trial so a lot of people that's kind of where the question of what's your favorite section gender your favorite view. Because every time I discovered a new section something amazing about it that I hadn't experienced in the past it made it Really easy and what was also neat about circumnavigating. The retrial is just accessibility so a lot of it was just maybe forty five minutes in a different direction so it was a lot more accessible. Looked when you kind of look at the whole big map and I was just able to switch up Maya Saturday. Ron Go someplace new so yeah so. I didn't in Less than nine and what I did is just took those moments of time that I had free To do a section of it but with people are considering of coming circumnavigators. I really think you don't have to do it in a year. Two years or three years really think about what type of experienced with light on the retrial. It could be anything from Ryan to photography to have a new spot height with your hiking group. And just get out there making your own experience when you start hiking at you. Just really searching realized the diversity of the bay area in topography and they're so much more than Trials in your backyard. Even though they're amazing beautiful old airs these experiences that are just down the road. That are completely different. Yeah Yeah it is. We can be get ten minutes away from our house. We can be out in the wilderness. It yes it's that. Yeah you're in the city and just captured a perfectly. You're literally in the city stuck in traffic and then ten minutes way. You feel like you're the only person out there. Sometimes you might only personnel on. Yeah it's it's true it's true you are the more remote and get less old and I. It really gives you. I think perspective and what we're finding out now through research is that outdoor time is really great for your health and it's now becoming a prescription from some doctors people to enjoy the outdoors. Absolutely well I wanNA thank you so much for being on the show. This is great. This makes me WANNA go out and get up to Mount Tam Right now but after the weekend But thank you very very much for being on the show and I hope this speech in the bay area more involved and visitors who come to the bay area they can check it out and visit some of the trails.

I will have all the links for the Bay Area Ridge trail on the website. I also and something that a lot and I talked after the interview is that the Pacific coast trail runs at one of the trail run race. Companies Sponsors a Bay Bay Area Ridge race series. They had I think they have to three different races throughout the year for the Bay Area Ridge trail and it goes on parts of the rich drill. I've done one of them. I did the thirty seven. K that goes from the San Francisco because from Baker Beach and San Francisco and that goes over the bridge and then he goes out and then ends at Stinson Beach. So I've done that distance. It's really fun. It was a great race. They also have one at East Bay and I believe there is one in the South Bay too. But I'm not sure about that. But I'll put their link on the website too so you can check it out and do one of those races. They are wonderfully run. They're excellent race company. You will have a great time very fun. People run those races and volunteer work at those races. It's just a lot of fun. You will not regret it now. The thing that she mentioned is a barrier bear bait. Can I talk berry? Esa Bart Station? It's not open yet. Bart Bay Area Rapid Transit. It's our train station. It's like a quote unquote rapid train. That goes all all around. Most of the bay it's It's not that fast. Not really and they're not that fast. As far as building new stations. They usually are very late. They never come in within schedule. So there is one in northern San Jose which is about time they should have had things down to San Jose. Sooner but there's a lot of politics especially when you get in the suburbs Barry Esa. Why am I having a hard time saying that? Berry? Esa Bart stations should be open soon and there is a trail right from that Bart station. That would be really fun to follow and it'd be like I said it'll be great to have a Bart Station in San Jose. Lots of stuff in San Jose for people see but we can't get to without Bart. We could take the the train the real trains but they're massively slow and wickedly overpriced all right. There's a lot in that and I'm not even going to get into because it's not about running asked me sometime. If you see me in person. Okay all the links will be on the website and you'll be able to see. What is the website? Martha the website is Martha runs the world dot com on the website as well you can donate to patriots.

Show you're going to love. We're GONNA have LUANA. Espana is on is my special guest. She is a board member and vice president with the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council. She knows almost everything there is to know or she does know everything. There is to know about the Bay Area Ridge trail. She has circumnavigated the trail the whole trail. She's done the whole trail wet. There's still some to be completed. But what ever has been completed? She's done so she's the right person for me to talk to. It was so fun to talk to her. She has a love for the trail for the outdoors and for the bay area. So without keeping you more in suspense I want to present Luana Espana and would you welcome to the show. The WANNA IS SPUN. Ya She is Vice Chair and board member of the Bay area rich trail. Hi Lana how are you? I doing well so exciting to be here today to talk about their trial counsel and trial running great. I'm really excited to have you here. I love the rich trail and I've been wanting to have someone on the show for a while. Let's just start at the beginning. Just so if if people from out of the area don't or even in the Berry don't know what it is. What is the Bay Area Ridge? Trail? There is Charles of five hundred fifty mile. Continuous trial Hikers runners mountain bicyclists and questions as onto the bridge lines around up the bay area and currently there's three hundred eighty miles are open and ready to explore and eight. Eight percent of it is so bad right now to multi-use which is or hikers runners by Earth's astronauts and this trial Is All the way from Calistoga down to Gilroy? So it's very extensive child throughout the bay area. That is amazing so just goes all along the ridge points the high the highest points the area just to make big circle of the bay area. Yes so how did it get started? Well it can start it over thirty years ago. William Penn mock junior who originally served as a East Bay Regional Park district director than work for the California State Harks and after that Was Director of the National Park Service. He envisioned this continuous circle in the area. Ke- connecting all rich points and so later on there were groups that got together and full armed with later became hand the area rich trump council and they started working To dedicate the first miles of rich trial so the first ever show was dedicated in nineteen eighty nine. That is a massive undertaking. Must have just been to just get it. Started was just almost overwhelming. I think as far as a with any projects when you have ADT decision it's brain together a different coalitions in individuals to start moving project. So I wasn't wave around on the retrial council without efforts started Being our board now I can just imagine all resources that the founders brought together to start off the trial right right so eighty percent is complete now. Is that what I thought I heard you say right Eight percent of three hundred eighty miles an open for multi-use. I see I see now now. The the total you were saying. I'm sorry. Five hundred fifty is the amount of mileage when the child district okay. There's still a lot lot more trail to be laid out then. Yes so currently do as organization on work tracking the different gaps and we have a timetable or different sections for when they'll be We also brought together are different partners of back in two thousand eighteen or partner summit at an apartment summit reworked the different County is land agencies Ranch House to start a gap analysis process on to look at what is going to take to complete last sections of the rich trump and were actually report sere so everyone will be able to look at what are the different challenges opportunities or completing those last sex. That's great that that will. Hopefully there'll be some more new sections opening up than soon right. Will we do have some new on sections that are planned to open this coming up here? We've also had some major land acquisitions reset that will have neutral eventually on it. So some of exciting happenings. That took place is a McCormick ranch and or grant is in the area and when asked completed going to the new rich trial also complete a looked so branch will connect sugarloaf and Mountain and you can do there then there's also on it ranch and that's near the Carquinez Strait area so there's been some interesting areas And very exciting areas where eventually sea route shop. That is great yet thing I really love is the maps that you have available to people. If you go to the website and I'll have all the information of your website on my website for this episode. Is You can bet we can download sections of the map on a pdf and we can print them up. And I just love that access it such easy access for anyone to get to. We don't have to buy apper or anything like that. It's just so user friendly. Well it's more exciting than that. There's a function on on our website. And it's called an interactive map. So you go to the interactive map. It has all the different sections of the rooch trial you can click on a section and we click on that section. It has the start point in in the trial. Or Annette's also connects up to those beautiful Maps that were seeking avow but was so great about that. Inner Act in map is you can choose your for layer. Base layers. Didn't have anything from satellite a to the top all maps. But it really. Lets you see how you could put together multiple segments of the rich trial for along or adventure so I always tell. People is planning an adventure. Gulf I that interactive map and then Iraq did map. You can download those. He has the. Oh Wow. I didn't know that that was there. I must have missed. It's I'm going to have to go back and check that out because that is really superb. Oh I'm sorry go ahead. Oh no no. I was also mentioned sites that there's an APP on your phone and it is our spatial out in that. App has all of that inpatient. Pe of us on our website and it's fed. It's that APP soon. You can use it kind of like a google map and it will tell you the start point in point you get. What's your hike you can Press an Arrow and it will let you know where you are relationship to the trial. So there's a lot of ways that you can discover the retrial with are either the website with the APP or a with a new edition of Bayer rich trial official I or hiking mountain bikers. Austrians watch. The new addition came out last year and not focus by listen buyers and Gene Rushmore Nice. That's very good. Wow now you were saying that. There's a portion. That's going to be completed this year. Which part is that? So that we have that reese may decide finish. And they're not looking to come out in two thousand twenty so just recently opened. was at the Pacific Union College. enacts up in an win in Ashland County. So there we had open was A few that at in the past The trial existed have access to you know game with the Pacific Union College and Napa County regional parks and open space district. We were able to open up that trial To our teasers. And what's great about that is that's GONNA put pressure on opening other assessments. One of segment. That is in the works for this year of Charles actually complete far VARI various Bart state ship an accent on more than San Jose. So this should be opening an early twenty twenty. And what's great about a this? Trial segment is that you'll be able to get off the bay area Various Bart Station of From Bart and then there's different way finding signs and you connect with pitches a creek which is a new section that we built stair you're able to connect up dependency to create trial all the way to alum rock park and up to Sierra this open space concer- so we're looking for a trial dedication there in twenty twenty Nice Ni- that's that's going to happen then then pretty soon that's great. I'm so glad that they're that they're having a lot more happening in San Jose because it's been so hard to get to for those of us in other parts of the of the bay area who don't own a car So what's your favorite part of the trail? Oh my gosh thoughts a question. I've always asked and I have a lot of favorite parts and when I started doing. Is I categorize those favorites Favorite spots Parisians. So you're here in the East Bay. I have some fades back. I just love to go to and some of them. They're they're nearby but you just might not know that they were there. So what my favorite is in the East Bay mud Lance and you start at Coal Creek which is actually in in East Bay regional car and you'll get usually across east famous. The district's plan that there is a beautiful rich hall. Dinosaur Ridge and that bridge has three hundred sixty degree us and this cashew Bali San Leandro area. And why it's so exciting to me as was literally in my backyard all these years and I run along the trails nearby but until I decided to circumnavigate the Bay Area Ridge trial. I just didn't know that this incredible three hundred sixty degree view was literally right here. My backyard that's amazing that you find something that has been there all the time but you didn't know about it. I love discoveries like that and I also have As far as one of my favorites this plan is a little farther north and this individuals who secondly An uphill challenge. But I just have a question for you when you take a NAPA. What do you normally think of fields of? Well you you think of wineries of course but I also think of fields of of wildflowers and hills and a lot of really beautiful homes and yeah yeah. That's pretty much what I think of. Yeah so there's this great trial out there. And it's a lower hill my point five miles uphill and it's basically eighteen seventies mercury mine road and what's so amazing about this goes through woodlands and Chaparral and grasslands UC sweeping US NAPA VALLEY ANNOUNCING HALINA. But it's volcanic and when you get towards the top of the lower oak hill minds. You have all of these all candidate rocks and you kind of delay. You're on the moon landing and it's a very different experience or that region so it it was exciting for me. It was that only a climb up ill but just as far as a different topography at might not associate with Napa. That is cool. I I knew that there are different. Woods enforced there. I know there's a campground in in Napa but I didn't know that there was that particular trail that sounds really really great. Definitely have to hike that sometime so I'll kind of just Maybe two more my favorite sure absolutely please or maybe three faith insurer in the North May I also love and out park and Endo Park was really awesome about our section of the Rt. There is it goes through everything from Grassy Hillsides To a different forest area and then through a meadow and you really just have a diversity landscape so antidote for me was something new coming from the East Bay and in kind of the Marin area and I know this is a big invert with most people is ds Ridge and what's great about that as we start down by Muir beach and then you can have a nice run up hill near the panoramic highway and the whole time you just have sweeping views of coastline and your be Chan and then you can run back down and then have a great high appear near there at. I believe it's Pelican and and it's it's exciting and then I have one gym that I I believe boasts heedful haven't checked out. And that's in the South Bay Coyote late Harvey Their ranch. This it's about four point eight miles one way but you can look at it as some other trials down there and it's it's it's relatively flat in comparison to other parts of the rich trial but it's farther out on the beaten path and cows and it's ranch land and it's just hill different perspective of the bay area or trump nice. I love those I I've been on the one up by Annandale that you were talking about. I've done a few races up there. that lead up. Mount Tam so that is just such a beautiful area. Yeah Yeah Very nice you know we. We're so lucky in that there so many places that we don't even know about that you discover and I love the fact that the rich trail just brings them together. You know just this. This chain link of just beautiful places all all in one continuous trail. That is just to me. I love it and I think we're really fortunate to is our hearts throughout region. They do an amazing job And the upkeep of the trial you weren't within as ours to have a current sided edge and the really explore all trails your first time hiker.

"Coming up to twenty five minutes past the hour for months. A proposed deal to end decades of rivalry between Greece and Macedonia has cheated on the brink of failure, the former Yugoslav Republic to the north of Greece claims the name to the fury of Greek nationalists who say that that implies a claim on the northern Greek province of Macedonia. The leaders on both sides of the borders of trying to reach a compromise. And they'd been accused for the efforts of betrayal. They faced street protests, even death threats Greece's, prime minister only just survived. A no confidence vote on the issue. Another is one final hurdle vote increases parliament, if it's passed Macedonia will change its name to the Republic of north Bassett and Greece in turn would drop its longstanding opposition and allow its tiny northern neighbour to join NATO and the European Union or at least start the process. Linda, LeBron polo is a journalist in Greece. Linda, I mentioned a vote. What are the chances of that final vote in Greece's parliament actually getting through? At the moment. It's not quite clear in the beginning was expected to be ratified despite having a very large the opposition does not support the vote none of the opposition parties. Do we've had some MP's changed sides. We've had a lot of horse trading from what we can see at the moment we have about one hundred fifty in support in about one hundred and fifty again. Oh, wow. That's very tight. Right. Okay. Now, the the prime minister, Alexis tsipras, only just survived a no confidence vote, and there isn't election coming up fairly soon is this is this election earring is part of the election campaign. Well, you can't say that because a CPA has has has been the person behind this name. He's been in a way the poster boy campaigning for this to happen. It's been an issue that's been ongoing for decades. Why is he done that? Sorry. Explain I mean, is it something that would be sort of a feather in his cap. Bit of a win. It's more because Alexis tsipras has taken over in Greece at a time of the financial crisis. He has tried to say that he is the one managed to get Greece out of the crisis has. Been successful in that. But the truth is that most people do not seem to think that this is the case. So what he's hoping to do is by proving himself, not just to the Greek public. But also to other international leaders that he someone with the potential to remain in politics. He's only forty four years old. He's trying basically to create his own legacy. Right. So he wants to come over is a bit of a statesman. I mean, I'm interested. I mentioned that this quite a lot resting on this with the possibility of light beginning to start the process of joining NATO and the European Union for the Republic of north Macedonia in the sense of and burnishing tip presses credentials as a statesmen. What's in it for Greece to settle this? Greece. Greece's biggest investor in what we still the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, all Macedonia. It is it would improve immediate relations between the two countries. And obviously stability in. The Balkans is something that people want was worried about is not necessarily was is happening. Now, those opposing be. They're worried that eventually there may be territorial claims there might be minority issues arising, as you know, the Balkans is a region that has had a lot of wars and a lot of exchanges of populations. So they're worried that this might create a precedent that in the long run may not work out wealth agrees. Right and everything depends on Greece passing it. I mean, we should just as sort of explain a little bit in the background north Macedonia. If we're going to call it that has already agreed. They're part of the deal. Yes, they have they have agreed to their parts of the deal. And for them the significance is obviously the ability to join NATO accession talks with the EU very different position. And this stability is something that obviously Greece welcomes as well. Greece is a member of both NATO and the EU and from a larger perspective, a more geopolitical perspective, obviously, this would also open a number of other questions.

"Israel has struck at alleged Iranian targets inside Syria. Overnight. It comes after Israel said eight intercepted a rocket coming from Syria. An Israeli military statement in the early hours of Monday said the operation was against the elite coulds force of the Iranian revolution. Regards. It warned Syria not to strike strike back to find out more with joined by Renan, Bergman national security, senior correspondent for Yedioth Ahronoth Israel's largest circulation daily and author of the book rise and kill. I moss had history. Yeah. Thank you for joining us on news day. Do you have any more details? First of all. Well, this is part of the ongoing compaign Israelis running against Iranian Bala targets in Syria. A campaign that was put to some sort of a stalled following the down of the of the Russian plane by Syrian anti aircraft missiles sometime ago that was aimed at Israeli targets. In just just today a few days ago, Israel stroke again Iranian targets. This was replied by Syrian surface-to-surface, long range ballistic missile was launched on the Golan Heights were thousands of Israelis where skiing at the time that missile did not here because it was intercepted by Rayleigh missiles. But I think that what happened today or during the night was when Israel was trying to signal to Syria. It will not there to have further we tell so it's balmy. It's one of the striking for the idea to issue a statement about the attacks. And so soon afterwards and low with that statement, they've even included a hyperlink which goes through to a video of the missiles striking and this is unusual. Isn't it? Have we? Are you still with us? Yedioth? I think I think we have lost Yedioth we will try and go back to that story later in the program Lawrence. Well, no one thing actually, even you mentioned that the idea had issued this statement at the bottom of the statement. And you heard Ron they're talking about skiing says for the time being the Mount Hermon ski site will not be open for visitors today on Monday. That's part of the statement as you say, quite a remarkable statement. We'll see if we can get run back and talk a little bit more about that thirty minutes past the hour. Here's Matthew with the sport morning Lawrence. And it's not a busy day on the sports desk. This year Super Bowl, I can tell you about first of all we'll be between the New England Patriots. And the Los Angeles Rams after both won their conference championship games later on Sunday. The patriots beat the Kansas City. Chiefs thirty seven thirty one in overtime. The Rams needed a controversial call to go in their favor late in regulation time of their twenty six twenty three overtime win over the new. Orleans saints. Elsewhere record-breaking day for Paris, Saint Germain who scored nine unanswered goals against Congo in the French league on Sunday, including hat tricks from NBA an Cavani that'll teach can go on to beat PS in the Cup, which is what they did ten days ago. We're getting to the business end of the Australian Open tennis now fourth-round action today with today's biggest match features the great Serena Williams up against the world number-one Simona Hallett. That's coming up. A couple of hours or ready today, though, we've had the US open champion Naomi Asaka through to the quarterfinals in the women's straw. Currently. In a brisk of has just put out Garbin your muga Ruth in the menstrual sixteenth. Seed me Las round had a fine win over the four seed Alexander's verify many, thank Beth Buchanan. More in twenty minutes time. It's a quarter past the hour now to the US where it stay thirty one. What has become the longest of federal government shutdown in history, not all federal employees. We should say affected to the military isn't affected social. Security still gets paid and delivered. But there are more than eight hundred thousand people not getting a salary about half of whom are expected to work without pay the FBI homeland security customs and so on an attempt over the weekend to reach a compromise failed. So it goes on let's hear replace deeply affected by the shutdown Kodiak in Alaska home to a major coastguard base, which patrols the Bering Sea between Alaska and Russia coastguard aren't getting paid which owned by the mayor, Pat Branson, very, warm, welcome. How many people are affected in Kodiak by the shutdown? Then we have about a quarter of our island population affected by the shutdown. Whether they're coast, guard members or federal employees or contractors who work on the base. So it's a it's a major effect on our island in the middle of the Gulf of Alaska, we have the largest coastguard based in the country here. All right. So that's why. So basically a large chunk of salaries just aren't. Being paid to how people getting by. How are they getting by? Did you say, yes? Well, we have a lot of help here from different charities different people are donating because this has certainly a trickle down effect on our community with restaurants breweries coffee shops, people are not spending money because they don't know when they're going to get paid again. We've had I've heard one person yesterday worried that the shutdown Mike go until December what will people do? So in the middle of the Gulf of Alaska, the second largest island in the country. We tend to take care of our own people and do the best that we can't guess what we're doing give me an idea. I know that that some people are expected to for example, the border security quite a lot of them are expected to work without pay. What's the situation with the coastguard because quite a lot of what they do. I mean, imagine they're a big seas in the Bering strait people are going to need a coast guard. So are they working without pay? They are working without pay. And we salute them for that. We could not have. Our fisheries be safe and searching rescues go on without the coastguard. So they are continuing to work as are people who are firefighters on the base and other employees as well. I mean that's pretty dangerous stuff search and rescue in the Bering Sea in this season is pretty hairy and scary. And so yeah, I mean you take their hats off to them. But why do they do do? They have a choice. Do they have to work or could they sort of withdrawal? Withdraw their labor. I don't think that there. They can withdraw their label. They've signed an oath when they signed up to be on the coast guard, they're dedicated, and that's what they do. And despite not being paid. They're still doing the big stuff like evacuating people medical emergencies that kind of thing other. They are indeed they are. And we're very grateful for that with no money with such a large chunk missing. What can you you said to charity and Sonal what are you doing the people at work whip around and try to pay for those that don't? That is going on. We have a local diner who is the owners losing about five hundred dollars a day with people not coming in. And she has a donation jar there for the coast guard the chief petty officers association is accepting donations. We had a grocery store from the mainland near Anchorage ship food over our food Bank is busy people take care of themselves here. And we're doing the best that we can to help our neighbor and to make sure that they're ok well good to hear listen, Pat. Many thanks indeed Branson, the the mayor of Kodiak in Alaska. I looked it up on the map, and it looked like quad a small island. But actually, she proudly says it's the largest liners in the US or the second largest island in the US with this relatively very large coastguard base, and they're working without being paid. Let's go back to that story of the Israeli air strikes on suspected Iranian targets. In Syria overnight, we've managed to get Ronen Bergman national security senior correspondent for yeti off runoff newspaper. Israel's largest circulation daily this time on the telephone Ronin is also the author of Reisen kill I a history of Mossad. Thanks for coming back to us. We were talking about that statement released by the Israeli military confirming that it carried out those strikes and even releasing a video of the strikes and to do that. So soon after one of these attacks is quite unusual. Isn't it? Israel for a long time. Heck, many thousands of now declared by the chief of staff thousands of targeting renew targets in Syria without taking responsibility and military senatorship enforcing a policy opaqueness of that. But just recently following some statement from the former chief of staff and the prime minister teams Israelis changing its policy and saying very clearly Israeli military and air force all striking Iranian targets in Syria. So why the change your strategy? Well, I think that Israel is trying to make a point. It's wind Syria is striking back. It's not just trying to take down airplanes. But also sense that missile. It didn't hit but was sent to send a message to Israel, stop attacking on our territory. In Israel in reaction is trying to make your point. We will continue. Strike reunion targeting Syria as long as you Syria regime, allow Iranian to continue their military buildup in this country. Who does Israel consider to be the threat here is it the Syrian government or or is it Iran? Trying to continue with the same rules as stated by the area or by yourself during the last five years, which is basically that as long as Iranian continue to be based in Syria and seems to be by Israel position to be threat to its no border will continue to strike these targets in Syria notes in Russia also has forces in Europe would not intervene. I I believe that Syria would never dream missile today for more mountain when thousands of Israelis were skiing. If it wasn't for Russia to give not to do that. So the biggest game he's not just between Israel, Syria, and Iran, but between Israel and Russia Russia has been trying to do the dishes really freedom of of flying over Ciaran attacking Iranian targets in Syria and Israelis reacting very dangerous game because no one could know nobody wants to war in Syria. But nobody knows how this can deteriorate into a fulltime exchange of flows between the the Syrian Iranian Israel forces. We don't without Russian involvement for the time being. Both sides in the Israel Russia had maintain sort of coordination tactical level to prevent this from happening preempted by next question. Because th there's gonna to be a reaction to the reaction, isn't there? Israel is going to see e that Russia or Syria or a rod someone's going to strike back on. Well, the last five here has told us that this is given. Because of the Israeli supremacy in the area, and because many of the other parties where so much engaged in the civil war in Syria. They were not very to challenge is really to all out war. That said it's not given the this is going to be happening in in the future. Another thing we have to be considering of course, the coming elections in Israel, and there will be people who would say that the change of policy from these rainy side, he's another Tampa prime minister to demonstrate to the local constituency the team, very strong, and he's not going to give up and he's no good to the Iranians doing this, very vocally this time, not just in exile battle. Making very good for the Iranians. The P will never allow them to set in Syria stations. So is there a real threat, or are you saying that actually these strikes are electioneering to put it? Bluntly crudely. Well, I I think that if they even if they are we can. True. Look at the light. Still there could be very dangerous. I am saying that it's not necessarily that the serious would react now again, but they needed a size with the war. But if for example yesterday that would have hit an Israeli anti missile missiles would not intercept that these babies were killed. That's what I would say lead to war. And this is why everybody up playing a very very dangerous game. These, you know, look profile exchange of blows Ronin. We appreciate it. Ronen?

"Jin's popularity can be traced back to prohibition when the manufacturing and selling of alcohol became illegal in nineteen twenty people got creative have you ever heard of bathtub gin? Well, that was literally people making Jin in their bathtub. It was cheap and easy. And there was a lot of it. So when president Roosevelt repealed prohibition thirteen years later there was plenty of generosity and just waiting to be drunk. Thirty six against prohibition is happy news while the grain raises of the United States, and many others throughout the land rose about cheers in the end of prohibition with nothing, but a MARTINI. So that's a big deal right there. Prohibition. Really kind of gave the MARTINI the leg up. I mean, it is just like this granddaddy of cocktails and this granddaddy came from here the San Francisco Bay area. Well, it probably came from here in nineteen Eighty-three. The San Francisco court of historical review, a group with no actual legal authority. They held a mock trial over the origin of the MARTINI. And they determined that their city was the cocktails. Rightful birthplace. But not to be outdone a mock court in Martinez overturned that ruling shortly after. When I press Jennifer to MIR and Gabriel on where the MARTINI was invented. No one is willing to say anything definitively. But finally, Jennifer gives it to me straight. So do you think it's important that people know where the MARTINI came from God. No, no, no one no one needs to know any of this. I mean, if you're if you're enjoying yourself at my bar. That's really all I care about..
