Thank you for having me so this is going to be a fun show you were. We've been friends for quite a long time. First of all she. You tell everybody a little bit about yourself okay. I'm the brian group than your heart. And then there's known as we have a lotta. Brian's brian the brian and see i'm a funeral director. Which is one of the first things that people usually learn about me. I'm also a co host. A real film which is a local. Tv show that that we were do a film review. Obviously i'm a friend of the pod here of big fan so this is really exciting. It'd be on here at the different medium for me just with my voice because i know a sound like tearing metal in a car alarm mixed but yeah looks to be. Thanks for having me. Yeah and this'll be cool. But you talk about real film so i've been on your show. I do kind of a reoccurring segment when i go to sundance. That didn't happen this year. But so it's kinda cool to have you now on my show reverse role reversal here. But it's the brian. Brian cheer captain. Now right yeah. Buckle and this is my revenge. So i'm looking forward to it and i'm going to go first and speaking of revenge is funny. I'm going to talk about my first. She is a short film and it is actually called tree vange and this was made in two thousand eight and it's directed by jason essner and i. I saw this at sundance. So every once in a while sundance will play a film before the feature and since i work at jinshan on the midnight shift in has the craziest movies. You know this is where blair witch and all the most gory crazy movies. This short film played before a feature and it is definitely a midnight movie so if you're squeamish not so good but it starts out very serene and this kind of panning shots over forests of christmas trees in the wild and it's scott this kind of eerie but also in a peaceful music and then it also said hard cuts to these loggers. You know kinda one. What a big cigar. The one with a chainsaw moment acts and they start chopping down all these christmas trees and it's really exaggerated but kind of what it's doing to these trees and loading them up in the truck and then taking him to a christmas tree lot and the trees are like shaking and they start talking to each other. So it's subtitled like what's happening. They're taking us away from our home. And why are they taking our children. And everybody's scared and then they get him into the house and they're like decorating them throwing them all these ornaments and lights and then on christmas day the trees had it and they get the revenge and the first one as they're taking a picture while the little girl is unwrapping their christmas present. In the tree grabs her and starts thrashing Gets super bloody gory. And the movie takes like this craze any goes more and more and more and i say anywhere because you just gotta watch it if you can handle it checkout tree vange nice oh man that you know i have a hard time with short films because they never can kind of you know they tell a full story. It's hard to do. They do that in a short period of time. But sometimes it's a little too short short attention span share hd. We'll get more of that later. But i'm so you think. Short films would appeal to me That sounds like a lot of fun. Though it is and it's it's so this one's sixteen minutes for a short film as actually you know on the longest side for what usually sundance does before before a feature especially by. Yeah and i forgot. I washed it again on my lunch hour today. Because it's been a while but how much it ratchets up the craziness i was like. Oh i forgot about that. And you know that and i tell you and this is like a lot of movies experience. I'll never forget the first time. I saw it at that midnight audience and one of my really good friends. Mark was next to me and mark. Is this new yorker. who is just. He's awesome he was freaking out so bad and he's a pretty tough critic with movies and i remember him just screaming and laughing so loud the whole theater was going crazy so that just enhances the experience. Of course we're always to go to the movie theater. you know. Sega grew nothing. Beats an audience because it can elevate any kind of movie especially especially a comedy or horford. Yes he goes back. Those are so much better with a group then with just by yourself. Yes that's something. That's a communal experience. That's something we're certainly missing right now. A days certainly. So where can you find this this. That's a good question so this is on them. O- or video video. Sorry them that's where you can send me money. If you are is on video. It's beyond youtube as well. But that's a good point. You can go to our website. Ten bessis dot com slash tree. And that will take you to the show notes for this episode with that will give you a link right to that. Excellent short film but yeah. It's definitely worth checking like. I said it's not for the faint of heart. Y'all wait till. I do want to put a little bit of warning for the because some people might freak out. Yeah that's always fun when you recommend him a film that scars somebody in a really bad way and like oh. I didn't tell you didn't lips okay. So we're going to move onto my first Cool sheet. I'm very excited about this. So as i mentioned. I am a funeral director Sort of most excited about right now. Or appears embalming chemicals. I listen to this podcast. I know how much chemistry can figure in. So i thought i would talk about some embalming fluid. I recently started a new funeral home in the us pierce and so they gave me the option of changing things. But you don't do that tone bomber so you just kind of keep with. There's because everyone is embalming fluids like motor oil or religion. Everyone has their own. Everyone thinks there's is the greatest and that's fine so an any thirty five w. h. bill pierce and his wife moved to dallas texas during the depression to start us a small Funeral supply business known as morticians supply. Bill pierce a licensed funeral director and embalmer himself newest supplies the funeral homes needed and so what he did was he just kind of figured out a concoction that he mixed during the week he would go out into the other states surrounding states and visit funeral homes to sell his product on the weekends. He actually mixed the chemicals himself. he's become a very big a prominent figure in our industry He even established the taos institute. A funeral service pierce college or the first school of embalming in the united states. My mentor david calendar. Who taught me. Everything was a graduate as well as bill pierce award winner. I cut my teeth and dodge chemicals and people like there's kinds of ones but with peers. What i really enjoyed was that they kind of thought about the director and one of the things that they did was they have a scented fluid which is kind of odd and strange but when spent all in a bombing room With smells like feet. Fluid and the old coworker next to you after a while you kind of have. They have a a cinnamon. Scented one mellon center one which is really nice. They had a triton fluid which is a and that does a really nice job in terms of how firm you want to have the tissue to be as well as energized which is a little bit more of a firmer tissue and the their care twenty five. Which is they're they're number one seller. They talk an awful lot. About as soon as i mentioned of my embalmers that i worked with pierce. They were like twenty five. You gotta get it. You gotta get it so we were really excited. It's already got die mixed in with that. Which is the way. I prefer it. Don't make me mixed please. And it does a really nice job in terms of the firmness of the tissue. That i that i would like to have the coloring and i just love the fact that they've got a fluid certainly for everything as most chemical companies do but i've really enjoyed working with with them and They're my michael sheet of the week. Wow okay this is why. I love having guests on. This is nothing i would ever. I mean i know nothing about so first of all. Gosh i have so many questions is going to be a long first of all. Tell people that don't i kind of know. But what does embalming fluid even do what. Embalming fluid does is it's the preservative and what i always say to to say gently is that it slows down. The course of mother nature all tissue all things break down with time and they will no longer living tissue so it slows down at also will depending on which one will bring color back to the skin. You and is very very very very pale. Yes and so we would need some coloring. We would need some die. We wouldn't have that now if it was somebody that if i put on one hundred hundred some odd pounds i would have a lot of fatty tissue and so i would need something with a higher index which is a stronger fluid energize here. And that would help. Firming of that tissue because.

"To be repaired finding that one. Screw you know that was missing to make it pristine towards original condition their obsessive about when you find something really really rare over in England. The Hardy Reels marshalling for twenty thirty forty thousand pounds on some of the auction so there are a number of collectors. Were competing with each other to get some of the very first hearty reels which were some of the first wheels the world and they're quite beautiful as well on the British side of things some gorgeous. Let's talk about Rx is now. There's a short history in your book. You're talking about the American Bambu rod making. Can you talk a little bit of that? Because the bamboo flowers really perfected and developed by the Americans and there was some early British wells which were partly bamboo the greenheart they use lots of other materials and the rest of the Rod and the tips. Sometimes we're bamboo but the first complete split. Bamboo flowers remained in this country and all the innovation really in bamboo firearm. Making comes from the US. So it's archetypal American innovation and so I. I wrote a short history so short history of the innovative American fly Rod and Jerry helped me with it. H helped me with that man. I couldn't have done it without them because I I read probably twenty thirty books to really just try. It condenses down. So that's the thing I've tried to do with. The book is really make it about stories and make it a lively description of what's going on so you can read that six page short history of American flaws and really get the highlights. And it's very hard. You have to read those twenty to thirty bucks to get it down to those expanse I and but it was probably the hardest chapter to work on but I think the payoff is. He can get quick history. You can get all the great stories in one place without having to do the seven years of research actually. Yeah so yeah. You have something to add there on the history of the bamboo. Well it's amazing about research. I did a book with a friend of Mine Bob Stewart Zone West Coast quality every Thomas demands is rods and he was trying to early on by one of the early bamboo rod innovators the eighteen seventies and then he went on the fours on company at Thomas. Raise a very successful company Son handled it that it ended. Nineteen fifty eight What there is a Fella Steve Campbell up in Maine who now owns the rights to the name and bills. Vert fine split bamboo rights. But the interesting thing is about doing the book Lavin I did about fifteen years worth the research and then took seven years to write the book. You know it's funny because I'm not sure actually you would know this but I'm not sure our listeners know this but there's a gnome who travels around the world and he has an entire rod show the GNOMES traveling rod show and you got to spend some time with Jeff Hat and St tells about that Jeff has a wonderful wonderful guy and he. He has spent the last thirty years assembling what is in essence a traveling museum. Traveling display called the gnomes traveling rod show and it's really the best collection of and most comprehensive collection of early fly rods in the world and he's got over one hundred forty rods and displays that are ship will beautiful displays that he's assembled and then he's written storyboards for every single rod to describe it in detail so I had the privilege of going up to Colorado where we're jeff s just sounds like a cool place it's a very Colorado beautiful place and You Know Jeff has his workshop there where he runs the no mish rod works and he's been using amazing guy in himself in many different parts of the industry and an amazing craftsman. Those beautiful work so his rods are collectible and he does beautiful work himself but he's just an. He has a huge appreciation for the history. The most knowledgeable guy really about all the rods that are in his museum and he's assembled them over a long period of time and he's personally really put a lot into it so I was really happy to give him some recognition for all the work that he's done over the years and assembling this and then Ben Leeman Been Leeman images actually happens to be a photographer in Colorado and I hooked up with him and brought him over to photograph the entire Rod Museum which is in the book so the entire museum. Every single panel hundred hundred and forty rods are in the book but it was thanks to Ben. Lemans beautiful that we were able to get all the details thing. He did all the macro shots in the detail. Shots and then used to be with the National Geographic. And just beautiful work. This is awesome and he was. It was a great collaboration. We had great fun. We spent all day looking at the rods and in photographing them and Jeff was just a pleasure to work with. We've talked about some incredible private collections of you. Being able to go around and do the research on on people's personal private collections. But you also visited some of the top fly-fishing museums in the world teller. Listeners are about a couple of museums that you visited. While you gotTa start with the American Museum fly-fishing in Manchester Meshes Center Really Beautiful Museum a Yoshiaki. Yama there who's takes care of the collection. It's been there for many many years decades and does a beautiful job with displays and he's one of the most knowledgeable people in the world on fly fishing history and has some of the found. Some of the earliest flies ever found from the seventeen hundreds. So they're the earliest. Add the earliest collection of documented flies in the world and Yoshi is extremely careful not only entered documenting things but really taking the time to create beautiful displays so is current display and show. That's running around. The country now is on software to fly rotting. And it's the best show that's ever been done. I saw what a fly running which is quite difficult to do because there wasn't a lot of documentation about those early saltwater fly rod efforts and he kind of started it all out. Got It all in beautiful exhibit and that's traveling around the country so on their website. You can see where it's going and it's all over the country and then Sarah Foster who's the new director. They're fantastic very high energy. She's done a beautiful job with the with the museum so they kind of Oak. Welcome me with open arms and said look anything you on. My spent time going through their entire archive to pick out the best tips to put in the in the book and I was like a kid in a candy store. Yeah and I just you know with all the things that they have and the care with which they're taking care of their collections. It was a real privilege working with them. And then what about the place? Up in aquatic up in range. The aquatic the outdoor Sporting Heritage Museum which is run by Bill. Pierce is executive director. There is fantastic. So if you have any interest in the you know in that and that's various doric area with racially early fly fishing camps were up there and he does a wonderful job and as I say in the book go into Bill. Sort of like an episode with the with the antiques roadshow because people are constantly coming in and bringing them things awhile and we need a value on. Yeah like I. I'm bringing this in from my cabin. What is it you know? I've got this old photographic aquatic upper upper or lower dam or Richardson Lakes or whatever and he's so knowledgeable he's got he's got some of the best stories on my say but the museum itself is. Beautiful. They've got everything from you know. Carrie Stevens flies and Stevens with another really a woman credible fly tire and they high of a picture of her last fly that she tied called the Pink Lady in the book. Beautiful Fly they have the largest collection. Carrie Stevens flies. They're hurt Welsh. Nounce so taxidermy. Some fairly tax from her her Welsh. Who is the best taxidermist in the country? There's a great great book by great and Hilliard out about her Welsh. He spent years doing the research on that. And I have tremendous respect graydon. He was really gave me some great advice on my book. And he's a great writer and has great stories about her Welsh now and then they have you know canoes and paddle boats and everything and the initially when you come in. The first thing you see in the lobby of the museum is an entire reconstructed trappers cabin interesting right away. You're in you're in a cabin camp the entire thing. It's just you're in me. You're in Maine absolutely so it's worth making the trip up to a classic. I've been there. It's a great spot and Rain Sleet was my first kind of explosion and defy. Fishing started fly fishing in late. Nineteen Ninety S and people said Raines. Lewis a place to go and so I was on the rapid river. With algebra franchise fishing the uptick was fishing again. A big upper mick. Galloway wanted kind of ping-pong. We'RE GONNA go over at the pond over the pond. Talk little bit about the fly. Fisher's Club in London St tells about the flashers club fissures in London is probably the most iconic fishing club in the world and they have their rooms are about the club in London on Brook Street. And you go over there. Yes I did and I had the privilege of becoming a member overseas member of the club. Wow and these gentlemen really are incredible in terms of what they do to preserve the history of fly fishing. And the curators there. John Not one of the most knowledgeable people in the world on the history of fly fishing David Beasley the librarian. Who's just stepped down as librarian? I was extremely helpful as well. David had one of the best book collections in the world on five fishing. So you may have heard of William Blacker Blacker Books. Beautiful Salmon fly in fly books. He had a great collection of those which have found their way into the club. And I met with John The curators and with David and they took me through all the collections which behind closed doors. Really mainly Have been viewed mainly by members of the club very exclusive club and so many people don't get to see these treasures and so my approach them was. Let's make some of these treasures more accessible right beautiful things. So we have a rod box for instance that I made for the exhibition of Eighteen fifty one and that was displayed in the Crystal Palace and Crystal Palace was the for exhibition and Prince. Albert working with Queen Victoria to create something that was really almost like the first world fair. Everyone from England. You know made the best things. They could make presented them to the exhibition. And so I have a real in the in the book that's from the exhibition. But they have an entire rod box. That was made with reels. Wallets flies beautiful rods with Gold Fittings. Everything is spectacular. And that's one of the things. Probably the biggest treasure I've ever seen in you know in the world and I actually put part of it on the cover of the book just because it's one of these things you'll never see. I mean it's just a beautiful thing and they also right next to it is Isaac Walton's Creel which is in their collection. Yeah so you took a picture. That that's from their archives so and again Paul Varney there. Who's the Secretary of Club incredibly helpful to me in making these images available to me obviously with permission and copyright from them but I went through their entire archive and he freely. You know g cl selected things that you think are best and you know let's will allow you to reproduce them so the first time those things have really book anywhere status amazing wonderful people sure Isaac Walton's leather early lead the creole potbelly. Creo can you quickly tell us about some of the most historic tackle houses? Yeah so basically the some of the oldest tackle house in the world. You've heard the names. Hardy orvis follows or the three that I covered in the book. I try to short history of each one. So in the case of Orbis. I have actually a brochure from eighteen fifty five. That's was signed by Charles F Orvis and it's for the equinoxes house which was the first big in that they were and they were trying to get sportsman to come up and fish and hunt in Vermont and so he was promoting that in and trying to get people to competition the region and then he decided and then he started that tackle company from there and so I have a little bit about the history of the earliest free of Orbis And then some beautiful Trade cards and early reels. I'm actually quite interested in the early. Orvis reels just beautiful. Eighteen seventy five and had the patent paperwork actually a very rare gold plated variety of that real it was made for prizes and it's extremely rare and one of the only ones I've ever seen in terms of hardy's covered all the early history of heart and then up to the really high tech innovation that they're applying to making reels..

"Good I love it but again it is the best we all got all our music hats on this morning and I will say what Mercer Adams funeral service has one of our sponsorships and they've been an excellent partner of ours and they come in with the quote of the week this week was a very good one now let's let's think about this let it let it sink in we all need lots of powerful long range goals to help us past the short term obstacles nine nine that's a good one let that sink in what's that one sink in for a second so we're talking about some long range goals one thing you know a couple of things Patrick that we deal with on a daily basis is obviously our our financial goals and financial future in our health care goals or in our health goals and and how those are going to take part in one of one way that we can do that especially for our loved ones is through safety yes yeah and where best can I mean there's so many good sources of of safety but we have one here in the studio right now that we definitely want talk about home safety and some additional security that you can get at that's affordable and it is you know it's autumn well you can have it as an app on your phone accessible and user friendly thanks yes and so your preventative care is something that we talk about all the time we we had doctor bill Pierce on of the show a few weeks ago and the study that they've done with Oklahoma on how to better prepare ourselves for the future and for aging and he just flat out said Kerry we got it we got to start early and we gotta do preventative care and we got to take care of ourselves before we get into a time of crisis and so today we have got to one of our favorites on today we've got Lexi tryst with **** home life care any also brought his body Patrick a long to start I'm surrounded by Patrick's this morning that's right like IT homes on the Super Bowl and then Patrick surges flooding will not now X. squared Patrick also works with **** home life today and so it's an honor to have both of you in the studio this morning and talking about convention prevention and safety and are not only in our homes because there are a lot of ways to do that but probably my favorite by far feature of the **** home life program is the ability to go absolutely take your protection on the go with you yeah with Coxsone life care go so tell us a little bit lex how how does it work first of all so **** home life care it's a medical alert system it's designed for older adults that live alone and have health mobility issues it's a medical alert system so it's a personal emit a person the emergency response system I can help yes help me so you've heard of the iconic I've fallen and I can't get yeah yes but **** who might care is different from that we it's it's a product that's going to give you empower me so we like that we we have two types of systems we have a home system that's the only works in the home and in like you mentioned early Kerry we have a system that works outside what works inside home and also outside the home as well okay with **** so much care go so far so if I take our Zillow with me too which is Mike my grandmother his ninety and half ends feisty as can be and still loves to go I can take her to the affair of the heart with me this afternoon and that is and it's going to work with her there as well absolutely wow so Cup kind of break down the product with the home system we have a hub that's the heart beat of the system it's gonna it's kind of the brains of the system it's gonna just simply plug in the wall somewhere since we located in the home it's going to provide to a communication between the user in the Monticello E. this this system is gonna be monitored twenty four seven seven days a week so in the event of any top emergency you gonna get help any time a day seven days a week okay so with the two way communication on this up you'll be able to talk back to the mind silly so in the event of emergency you can talk directly back to them with the up you also get a automatic fault detection pendant so the user fail you can also IT help in a time of fall so not only just we talk about follows a lot because falls so detrimental to an older adult and it it really stripped him away from their independence and mobility yeah but it's also geared around any type of emergency any type of medical emergency but we also we just get some feedback in a testimonial that our **** home life care go actually aided into a traffic accident as well yeah it really yes so we were framing up that it can help in just any type of situation that where at the Ortiz there are any type of medical personnel is needed so if you take an aspect of your home the aspect of a fiery margin C. or Berkeley breaking in any type of emergency situation you can actually trigger response your home to get help to you and I I honestly do not know the answer to this question so I'm I'm sorry if if if I'm letting you down the wrong path but is there a GPS on it so you know if if our solos out in her garden somewhere and you know to go to the house and she's not in the house are they going to be able to find her that is a great question so with our **** home life care go system it does have GPS bit built into the platform okay so when the emerge responses triggered it's gonna actually give a pinpoint notification we also let me back I'm kind of glad getting ahead of ourselves we also have an app for the care givers SO three app the the app would notify the care givers where the trigger as came from through GPS so that would be you care ours hello would be the whole of them right and then also the care facility that's monitoring the show **** on life care go system also noted location where to dispatch the mercies that response team too as well so not testimonial where it was a traffic accident they just knew exactly what the traffic accident do absolutely PS location yes because the GPS yes and if you think about this one of the things we're saying is can connection is the new protection and so if Kerry's with ours Allah and they get separated and there's an emergency she hits the emergency so that's going to merge the services but even if you didn't know where she was on your app now you're gonna see without emergency was triggered how it was triggered such she hit the button for example if it was the fault of ten at the fall pendant and also how long the merge he's been going on so you may be a park together and get separated and when she hits that you can see it so it gives the care giver a lot of information which it provides peace of mind keeps you together even when you're not physically together but it's also alerting the authorities to getting multiple layers of protection that way thanks and go ahead and take a quick break right now but whenever we come back I want to expand on that a little bit and how that could.
