"Else. Yeah, for sure. This is a PSA to go by yourself new towels. We have been on the hunt. Tell me. Okay, so listen, this was the whole thing. Okay, we literally our cowls were turning yellow. They were so old. And I just could not decide like, do I spend this much money on really nice towels? Do I go away some more budget option? Like tons of research searching in every Facebook group by men. And we found we decided to go with ones that were more affordable for now, and they ended up being great. They're at target. And they are oh my God, I studied my target line because things I bought and liked had some that she recommended. I do. That's where I found it. Yes, and I stood in the target line, trying to figure out which ones they were, and I didn't want to throw good money after bad, and by the wrong kind. And then, okay, tell me, keep going. Threshold spa bath towels. And big, 'cause we like them big round here. We saw this over can have anything less than a background. You're right. This is perfect. It is. It's a bath sheet. That's what it is. And they're super soft. They washed really well. And we are keeping them in our special cabinet in our bathroom. So our kids don't get ahold of them. Oh, no. No, kids do not. No kids get our cast off. They get the yellow towel. With your way, they're really bad yellow ones, or we put a way to like white stuff down. But they got a few. So we got some really nice towels as a wedding gift. They're the Macy's hotel collection and they're so nice or so thick and clash and they dry really well and they've never stuck. I mean, we've had them for going on 13 years now and they've never like we've had towels from Costco that after a while they just stake and you can't get that stink out. So about a year or so ago I went to the Macy's website. I'm just going to do it. These cells are $50 a pop. I almost didn't. I was very close to hitting checkout. And I was saying, no, I mean, they've lasted 13 years. And tell you they haven't faded, they have granted their brown, so I can't tell if they're discolored, but I mean, I'm sure they are. But they don't smell and they don't Brown palace. Of course, literally it was 2010, Bernie. Yeah, so it's probably worth it to buy them, but if they're the cheaper option, I'm always for it. I am waiting for every once in a while. It's usually about the springtime, target will do some kind of deal offer bedding and bath stuff. So that was my thought process there. When I tell you I gave this so much in my mental energy, I was so close to getting $50 towels, like seconds away from checking out, and I'm like, okay, no, I'm gonna try these target ones first, because they're not what we want. I'll return them whatever. And so you did those, and I was like, ah, should we eat Chris sale? I'm like, I was just about to like $50 towels, like you pay full price for these targets. I know. Well, that was my conclusion when I was standing in the middle of the target aisle, and I had already built there for 30 minutes, trying to determine which ones were right. And then I kind of narrowed it down. I'm like, I think it's these ones. I'm just gonna get it. And then of course they didn't have the color I wanted. It was like a whole thing. And I was like, you know, I'm just waiting for a seal.
"brown palace" Discussed on Overthrowing Education
"Have to navigate. How do you do that as a young person? That's a whole other. It's hard enough to do it as an adult. As a young person, it's just really hard. So that interpersonal kind of those kinds of things that happen interpersonally are really important to try and think about learn about how I navigate what can I, what will I is it safe for me to say it? Will I have others come with me like all of the things and some of no place for hate is really trying to move a system. So there's a difference in those and they're both connected. They're not exactly separate, but they are really critical. And part of ADL's work in our antibiotic education work, which no place for hate is a part of, but also lives in our world of difference institute. Is this navigation of who am I? What is my identity? How do I think about myself? How is that similar or different from you? Was the language around exploring this idea of these words and terms and racism? What do these mean? How do I examine my own biases into myself, but also society? How do I think through what does it look like in institutions and systems? And then how do I challenge these ideas? So it is this progress. It's a lifetime of thinking. It's doesn't happen K through 12. Doesn't happen just in one year of college in one class. These are sort of ongoing conversations because we have continuous experiences that div us into all of these kinds of realms. And so these kind of pillars we call them that help us move through and understanding bias, hate, extremism, bullying, those kinds of things are significant. But it's a process. Doesn't get solved. That is, I think, probably the biggest challenge around any of this is like, yeah, it's tiring to have to think about it, talk about it all the time. Deal with it, right? Yeah. That's okay, but yeah. Inevitably, these issues pick that isn't racism, sexism, heterosexism, ableism, like islamophobia, like all of the things. Missing so many colorism, weight issues around weight. There's so many things of bias that an anti semitism and a horse, a 1000%, right? Oh my gosh. There's so much going on. That's so many people. Yeah, these are the and so many things that are that they are, yeah, yeah, right, the critical part is that they're not just interpersonal. They're systemic. They're not just systemic. They're personal and interpersonal, right? Yeah. It is both. Right. So the good news is that all of these programs that you're talking about, even in addition to no place for hate, I'm going to have links to tons of resources on my website, the overthrowing education dot com website, so you can check out everything there. And I'm so excited for people to be able to have access to these resources and use them, because of everything we just said. Yeah, there's so much. I said, so I so appreciate even just a moment in time to engage in some of these conversations. And I just appreciate, I feel so honored to have been asked and to be a part of all the other podcasts that you've done in that are all connected in so many ways. Yeah. Thank you. I'm so happy you're here. But I did warn you. Oh, yes. You would have to play the 5 minute game show. Yes. Though I probably am not quite as prepared as I would like to be. So I'm just going to go for it and hopefully I can do this. You can just do your best. And it will reflect on it after getting approved and all that stuff. Okay. And thank you. It's done. For the 5 minute game show. Okay, so for your game show, since you are in Denver, a place that I grew up, and we're both in education, this game is a mashup of well-known places in Denver. Okay. With things related to school. So I don't know if you know how a mashup works. I don't. But I'll try to explain it and then we'll do some we'll do an example. You'll see. Okay. But for example, I might describe a place and a school subject and you have to mash them together. Oh, wow, so in each clue, I will tell you which comes first, the place where the education related thing that's in the mash up. And I'm going to give a little shout out to my educational edu podcaster friends to say that Kevin and gerardo who are two Denver educators, podcasts, two dope teachers, and a mic. Yes. They also better be getting these right. Okay. They have no excuse not to. Okay. So here goes the first one. I'm hoping this one's kind of easy. We'll see what's up. All right, we'll find out. Here's your clue. You don't have to be a Bronco fan to be a student here, but it couldn't hurt. So you're going to take, in this case, the place comes first. So you take the place. And then you mesh it with the school. First thing is, where do the bronchos play? My high stadium, though it's now called in power field. Okay, we forget that part. A mile high, nobody calls them. We all know that. Okay, so mile high school. Yeah, so now put it together. Mile high school, there you go. Oh, that's a mash up. Okay. Thank you for my clues. I appreciate that. Absolutely. I don't know. I might just ask you for clues for all of them, but that's okay. We're just gonna go. You go right ahead. Okay. This one is gonna be hard. Okay. I'll talk you through it. And in this one, it's a school subject, and it comes first. Okay, okay? And then the place. Trying to find your ex maybe you should look in this famous historical hotel in downtown Denver built in the 1890s, sometimes X equals Y, but sometimes it equals why not. I was going to say just generally math or. Algebra. Oh, the Brown House. Yeah, and I put it together. Algebra Brown palace. There you go..
"brown palace" Discussed on We Travel There with Lee Huffman
"Resorts that you want up in the Rocky Mountains. So fantastic. So let's assume that we're flying into the DIA once we arrived there and we want to get down to the downtown area of Denver, do we rent a car? Do we take public transportation. Like how do we get around from the airport to the city? And then once we arrived there. We have this wonderful new, a train. The A train terminal actually is inside the airport. So from the airport you can go to the A train and it will take you all the way through downtown and log. You all had the Central Station, which is our recently revitalized Trane Centre. And in the train Center. We have a brand new hotel and we have restaurants, and, and a beer hall and coffee shops, and, and we have bookstores. It's a great renovated. Building gorgeous architecture inside gorgeous, architecture outside and across the street is the Oxford Hotel, which is very classic of Denver renting, a car. All the major agencies are there, you don't need a car. If all she business is going to be in the city center, or if all your business is going to be, when you're going skiing because when you go to Aspen, there's a shuttle bus, that takes you around to all the different slopes, so young. You don't really need a car, unless you feel you want to be more in control of your time. We also have Uber and Lyft. We've got a good taxi system here. Everybody seems to respect a dog. Body else. There's plenty of off-campus long-term parking at the airport or short-term parking, right by the terminal. I usually take an Uber myself either because I figure by the time I would have the hassle parking and pay for parking. I just get dropped off and got picked up in a way, I go. So that's my way of flying in and out of the city and my car sits in my garage that makes life certainly so much easier. So, say we take, you know, the A train into downtown and things of that nature from there were should we plan on on staying as far as booking a hotel? Should we say that that downtown Porter or is there someplace else that we should look at? So, I would say that the downtown Corridor for your first time in Denver, is a great central place to be. There are things that you should be seeing due to the north, the West, the south east. If you go west and the lovely part about Denver is, if you see mountains, that's the West. So you always have your compass orientation and wage. 14000 foot mountains. The mountains are always visible. Unless it's raining. We hardly ever have cloud cover or small gear? So you can always tell what Foundation you are. So the city center has got the zoo. It's got the main library. It's got the art museum. It's got the Museum of Natural History. We have golf courses. We've got restaurants, we've got movie theaters. We have the Denver Center for the Arts has 5 theater. Venues everything. I'm a little in the round theater to. We have our own opera house. We have our own musical theater performance venue and we have just so many wonderful classic historic buildings to if you remember the Unsinkable Molly Brown. Well Molly Brown actually was a survivor of the sinking of the Titanic song. And her husband built the Brown Palace. And so, the Brown Palace Hotel is a triangular hotels in downtown. It's so classical you go in and it's beautifully. Carpeted wage, wonderful, brass, fixtures and Hardwoods everywhere. It actually has a tee time with atti service very much. Like, if you've ever been to Vancouver, but very classic bought a very elegant. We have a Four Seasons, we've got oh my gosh, you name it. We've got it. We have a JW Marriott. We have a four seasons of the high end at the low end. We have a lot of everything. So you could stay here in town, I would think easily. From $75 to $1,000 a night depending on your taste much of downtown is walkable. We do have a light rail system that will get you to different places. There are several communities that we have, we have the Denver Tech Center. We've got Cherry Creek. We have going North Palm. Lakewood all of these are communities that you can go and visit. I wouldn't think you'd do that on your first visit here. You probably want to just focus on downtown. Oh, we also have a wonderful basketball arena. We also have a fabulous, very it's new but it's classically. Designed baseball stadium. And of course you might have heard that we have Mile High Stadium for this Broncos, football team, you might have heard of. And so if you love sports, we've got it all. And if you're into amateur sports, we have a whole bunch of soccer fields and Tennis Courts, found a concert venue just to the north of downtown and we are also one of the few cities in the United States that has a professional rugby league in Glendale, which is just south of downtown. And so there is a Rugby field of the ladies where the national champions last year. The men were national champions two years. Or so, very good quality rugby. If you're into that sport, hasn't got the same traction As baseball or football yet, but you know, those that are into rugby realize, just the bumps on your shins are Badges of Honor earlier. You mentioned that your friend actually recommend, you come out probably seeing that sound like it was like wintertime and from understand like, Denver does not have as bad of a winter as you might suspect, right? I guess all the snow is primarily up in the mountains and based on the elevation of Denver and just the conditions, they may get a little chilly but it's not your three feet of snow. Like you, like you might think. Well, the beauty about how Denver was created, it's, it's the Confluence between the North Platte River and the Colorado River and the Cherry Creek. And all of those things came together, which is always how Town's got started in the old old west, but it's just east of the Foothills log. Rocky Mountains. And what does that mean? I mentioned, we have fourteen thousand foot mountains here, right? So, all the weather, blows up and shoots everything really high. And by the time, the precipitation normally hits and touches down. It's in the Eastern Plains, which is why we grow all of our fruits and vegetables and our corn and whatever we grow on the Eastern Plains. We used to be part of the package is territory and all that flat land that used to be part of Kansas. We have a bit of it and that's east of us in the Eastern Plains. And so the central part of Denver what is subject to as massive swings of temperature. And so the thing I tell people is be prepared to wear layered close. So this is true. I got up one day and it was a hundred degrees and the next day it was 35.

"During the day and then 20 degrees at night through that's true, But at least you could find some shade looking. Where, when it's 100, Did you see how many bug bites they have? When there is 100? Do they have like 1000 bug bites on their body? Jungle look terrible, horrible. Yeah, that's so fascinating. E mean, they couldn't have looking like they just got out of the Brown palace. Right? This is the show's called Survivor. But I would rather be in the cold than in the hot because I don't want 1000 bug bites. I mean, they're like scratching themselves to death. You'd rather be in the cold. Then in the hot tub. We were gonna be 68 degrees watching naked and afraid. Rick and I So you're naked the whole time with another person. Wait that Zach. I've seen the show that you have to be naked the whole time. The whole time. They're survivalist who think that they could survive 21 days in the environment. Everyone's naked. It's great. How did they show? Well, sure it is. There's a good chance the satchel. They blow out their butt or their bullets show there, But they just don't show private private. They blurred out. But the whole show is, but they get the words one satchel, they get to bring one item. It's a great show on discovery. Dave Pass, I'm gonna pass. It was great. I'm gonna pass on being a contestant. What about of you and Rick were naked and afraid together again. You sound very excited about the prospects of this, Ugo. I mean, all of a sudden I see the Kathie Lee Show along with millennial Grant. Um, No, I don't want to be with Rick. I have? No, it is not appealing to me to be with Rick naked anywhere. And afraid. I'd much rather be afraid that naked with you? Yes. You know what I mean? This is not a good look. I think the hard part for them is not having clothes on. That's a big part of it. Not that they're modest about it. At first. They are When they meet the first time they made they meet their partner there naked in there. They're all modest, but within a day, it does not matter. They're bending over in front of each other and You know, full of butt crack and beaver shots. And it doesn't that then that part of the nudity doesn't matter. But they get just a bit up by bugs their feet get all cut up and Thorne up. It is nasty. Really nasty. I don't know why they do it because they don't make any money for it either. Like Survivor where you can win a million dollars on that show naked and afraid they do it just to show that they're survivalists. Why, I don't know That's a good question to challenge of would submit to that stuff with no prize. From the 97219 by the sound of it.

We can't say we can't sworn to silence we wait. We can't I can. So could I really? I can't news radio. Hey, Chris, Huh? Am retired Air Force. Um and I was a survival instructor. And you guys would not make it three days. Oh, Why tell us why, Chris Well, this is what you were talking about. Before the break there. Um You can't drink saltwater because your body will try to get rid of the salt as fast as you could drink it. And we knew that we do that, right? What else and you cannot eat fish raw that come out of a streamer late because of the parasite. So you have to cook those. We're not gonna do that. All right. You gotta learn. You learn Dick. Uh, 30 Fire. Uh, purify all your water. She could have to boil that She's gonna have to learn how to start a fire. Uh, you don't have to cook your food. If you can catch it and clean it so somebody can catch fish in somebody can clean it. I think I can catch up. I can catch fish reeking planet, so we're still alive. Yeah. You gotta learn to start a fire. That could be too. That's the problem right there. Yeah, I know. Can you start a fire? Witches rubbing two sticks together. Is that a myth? No. Yeah, You could do it. Yep. That's how many people can really do it. Not many, probably right. Oh, it's no, not many. It's practice you alert. You learn what you look learning to do it how to do it and what you're looking for. And it Z difficult if it's really wet, like in a jungle situation because I've seen survival experts on these shows that cannot start a fire rubbing sticks together. No, it's a major problem. Okay. All right. There's there's easier things to do that you can buy a little flint. Uh, starters, fire starters and things like that, and And you, you guys were talking about naked and afraid. That's a great It's a great show. Because closes is a natural, um of barrier. It's the psychological barrier removed a psychological barrier and Then you're really you know, you're really out there in it. And, um that's the difference. I think between survivor in that show is just the clothes gives everybody that Well, you know, I've got clothes on and things were good. You take those clothes away and People get afraid, really, really quick. So you don't you don't think we'd make it even three days? No, I would have to go. Probably go out with teach you guys how to do some things, and then I would give you maybe a couple weeks. Now, listen, Chris, I'm not trying to live out there for a couple weeks. I'm just trying to survive three days. Three days days. I ain't going out there for like 6 A.m. on a Friday to make live out in the world. It is for the weekend 6 P.m. Sunday I think I could make it. You. Could you come back dehydrated and, um, really, really hungry and probably lose an ar £15 Chris. So if you were starving Is there any animal that you could catch? You could eat raw It say you couldn't start a fire. So you're desperate. You gotta eat something. Right fish? Oh, yeah. You gotta eat something. I would just it would be plants that you probably very not about Barry. I'm talking animals. If you're desperate, you'll take your chances with a parasite, right? Um, no, no, you would. So you would die rather than eat a raw fish. Well, the parasite might kill you. You're not going to die if you don't eat in three days safe s o u So why would you eat something knowing you're risking getting a parasite hoping you'll be able to get out there? What did you just eat leaves? Because he leaves and plants and Yeah, varies You can eat tree bark and unique insect. Oh, yeah. Cricket, rickety cricket. I don't. That's one thing. I can't get it.

With Hank Aaron and others and it was in Milwaukee with my late wife and I were at a, uh, a Brewers game and the old timers. Day was also that night. A friend of ours worked at a hotel called the Pfister Hotel, Kind of Ah, like the Milwaukee version of the Brown Palace. She's told us that this is where the ball players stay when they're out of town. So we went in after the game, and after the old timers day we went there for a drink. And she came over and said Joe, Look who's over there and I turned around and my eyes popped out of my head. Like you see in the cartoons and I took my program over to this table of these gentlemen sitting there and I walked up to Them and said, Um, Mr Aaron, I would love for you to make a family heirloom. My kids will fight over and he signed my program handed it to Bobby Mercer, who hanged, signed it and handed it to Blue Panella. And he signed it and end it to Kurt Bevacqua. Wow, and I was like I was thinking of all the times. I saw the Yankees when I was growing up. And everything and I said, I'm so happy Togut, your signature Shellman.
