"Maybe maybe she did say it but the bottom line is I think until she publicly disavows all her comments from the past and says you know everything going forward You know i. i don't take too seriously. There were eleven that voted against me yesterday. And that that's something that are later should be very upset about repair son. I mean what. What's the practical effect of kicking her off. These committees well. I mean it's it's it is a reprimand and certainly One of the unique things is the fact that he did have majority. Democrats reprimanding a minority committee minority member by stripping her of of committees but he did have the fact that you did have republican crossovers. Such as adam kensinger. She is talking about basically today saying well. Serving on democratic run committees would be a waste of time and she basically said in media that those voted to oust her from those assignments. We're morons because they gave her more free publicity and kindergar- is said that he believes that she someone that's not a serious policy person out there to get publicity build her brand become a social media star. Maria opinions their risk with all this attention on her that maybe we in the media folks in the political arena are elevating her Beyond what she deserves to be elevated. There's always a risk of giving extra attention to someone especially for someone for controversial comments. And so i think it's incumbent on us as an industry to To be extra cautious of of how we cover things like these in the things that she says. It only elevates some of the conspiracy theories that are you know that have been at the fringe so i think you know journalists reporters. Everyone who just has said be mindful of how they do cover What she says and the fallout of what happened in in congress. But can i say here. She is an elected member of congress. We're just coming off january. Six in an insurrection that occurred to have someone in that chamber who has espoused the belief that she has that nine eleven was faked. Mass shootings were of false flag. Set up by gun. Proponents to a basically threatened the lives of the house speaker. Nancy pelosi top of that and then even in her remarks yesterday on the floor of the house liking the media to killing on as spreaders of wise and fake. This is a member of congress. She has an oath to uphold the constitution of the united states of america. Which is why. This is kind of an extraordinary story. But rick you'll anger is one of the few republicans speaking out against her and trump and trump supported republicans. He started this pack meanwhile the illinois. Gop is trying to figure out what direction it's going to go How is that going to play out. Well the state. Gop unlike other State republican parties that issued censures against members of congress the republican members that voted for trump's impeachment state. Gop today issued a statement saying. They disagree with his vote on trump's impeachment. But they're saying that should be something that the voters ultimately decide under elected officials. They wanna move forward and they have their vote for chairman on saturday. And so maybe they're not bringing the hammer down on him as hard as some other state parties bringing the hammered down on republicans that have spoken out against trump Craig delamore if you had to guess will the illinois gop pick someone that's more trumpy that's more moderate. That's maybe a bridge between the two. I think that's what they would like to think that they would do. But i but at the moment there only really to people who are trying for it. And it's the same tug of war that existed That's existed for the last four years between those who are more conservative and more favorable toward donald trump and those who are more moderate. And i want to have more centrist positions at the moment. It seems like that whether there's gonna be some compromise candidate coming through. I don't know. I mean the fact that tim schneider. Who was is the outgoing chairman. Wanted to leave tells you that. They haven't really found their direction year. So it's kind of a kind of a battle for the party statewide and national rick. We'll have a couple of seconds this this pact. That kensinger started. How successful do you think it'll be. That's an open question. Certainly there's any number of republicans that do that view themselves as trump republicans. And i think what kickers counting on is that kind of what you've seen the erosion of the suburbs some of that demographic in giddy logical. But some of that also is just republicans that used to own the suburbs of them saying enough trump. But when you look at that as kind of this pack versus donald trump in the money that he can raise the fact that as Mt said today trump owns this party. That so he said he feels pretty lowly on that hill right now all right. We're out of time. So are many many things to rick.

"Though be blocked from teaching remote. The has said that would trigger a strike. Were it's the same exact situation we were in last week. Same time last week It's to be determined of the mayor this cut and paste the story from last friday. It's seems to be the. Let's move on to a couple other items in the news. The governor announced that state lawmakers will get vaccines this week in phase. one b. here's what he had to say. I'm waiting my turn. I think it's important for many of us to set an example in that way many legislators asked if they could be vaccinated because there is so much work that needs to be done they when they went to springfield just few weeks ago for the lame duck session. There were a number of members who contracted Covid nineteen craig gilmore. What's the argument for lawmakers. Jumping up a couple of spots and being eligible with other essential workers to get vaccinated some of them and they are split on this field that they are essential workers and frankly they have to meet in groups now. They met the last time they went to springfield or for full session They met in a convention center so they can socially distanced themselves but they feel that that's why they should move up their essential workers but you are also this is sort of like when they raised their own salaries. Some of them are saying we won't take it and some of them are quite willing to their honestly. Afraid rick pearson. Obviously vaccinations have not been as fast as most people like. What is the status in illinois in terms of people being able to navigate signing up in terms of everybody eligible in one be able to get an appointment. It's a mess. I mean in some respects. I'm surprised people haven't likened it to signing up for unemployment on the department of employment security website. I mean rashly. Have third party vendors with no association to government city or state or actually basically setting up their own apps to try to help people navigate. This be able to set up appointments. The rollout is a mess and everybody will acknowledge that. I feel the roll out across the nation statistics showing that communities of color have lagged behind. Even though public officials have talked about the priority of because they've been hit the hardest. Have those numbers improved at all and what about in chicago only in chicago. They've only improved slightly. Since the first reporting the majority last week Tall on a majority of avoid communities on the north side getting these vaccines while the south of west sides were were left behind. It's kind of a parallel of how testing was rolled out in the city. You saw More people on the north side gang tested and then. Eventually you saw testing sites coming to the south west sides south and the west sides and we're seeing similar rollout now with that saination people are. It's difficult for for people on this health. West sides t get vaccinated And only slightly. I think the latest numbers showed like about nineteen percent of latinos Getting vaccinated And yet big only improved slightly. So there's a long week ago in terms of getting bringing equity to the distribution of nations. All right let's turn to some city political news craig. Delamore the mayor's city council floor leader gilbert vegas alderman gil review got steps down after a little over a year and a half on the job to put that in perspective mayor emanuel city council floor leader. Alderman pat o'connor was in it for the entirety of manuals eight-year term. What what what. What's going on behind the scenes here. I think that the mayor's own sometimes combative nature has made it a little bit more difficult for gilbert vehicles to bandage through kind of votes. That she needs. She says it's because he won't buy votes in other words. She's not going to do the kind of horse trading that might have gone on before but she also is not afraid to To lash out at the alderman she also frankly on her inauguration day. Said you know. We're going to end a lot of the practices that you've been enjoying so and also he didn't have the same be didn't have the same affection from all of the members. That o'connor did. I think michelle harris. Who going to take over as the floor leader is probably more liked and well respected than vehicles was not that there was anything wrong with him. He was he. He was fine but he and the mayor had differences on a number of policy. Certainly michelle harris. The eighth ward alderman. Who was named as the new floor leader. She was loyal to rahm emanuel. She's a stalwart. She is well. Like she's been around there for longtime rick pearson. Do you think this improves. mayor lightfoot odds of getting more difficult pieces of legislation future budgets with text hikes through city council or is her base in city council. Eroding helps i mean it. Certainly i mean gil as as greg said gilles guy. Everybody appreciates being floor. Leader is a monster job and and trying to sell something. And i think in some respects with with knowing gill he was trying to sell stuff. He didn't necessarily believe it because he was tasked with being the floor leader. So i think now with michelle harris. You've got somebody who's more instinct Someone who does have broader field of respect. I think it helps the mayor but still. You're talking about initiatives that face a strong of all right. Let's move on to some other political news il annoy senior. Us senator dick durbin takes the reins as chair of the powerful senate judiciary committee illinois republican congressman. Adam kensinger joins ten other. Gop members voting to oust conspiracy theorist congresswoman. Marjorie taylor green from committees. Meanwhile kensinger launches a pack to take on trump's supporting republicans and a shovel date has been set for the obama presidential center rick pearson. Dick durbin takes over as the judiciary committee chairman. How come it took so long. When this the democrats have extensively ben in charge of the senate for going on a month now well part of it is the fact that the elections in georgia produce that fifty fifty split. And you had to rely on the fact of chuck schumer and mitch. Mcconnell to try to reach agreement on organizing principles. They actually went back two decades ago. The last time of a fifty fifty split mcconnell of course his issue before any organizing was the democrats did not get rid of the filibuster. The sixty vote rule in finally when to democrats associated with the fact that they would not support an end of the filibuster mcconnell drop that demand and it was easy to get the organizing in shape. But that having been said you're absolutely right to Basically two months into a new administration and you have a committee chairman who are still republican leftovers from the previous. Then you've got an attorney. General merrick garland nominee that needs to have hearings and be confirmed which durbin told us. This week. Probably not going to happen next week. But maybe the week after nadir isa senate has an impeachment trial coming up next week president. Trump's lawyer says say he will not testify. Who do you think will testify and how you think this is gonna go. I don't know that it's clear right now. Who's willing to step up and insane voice on the side of the former president. We saw his entire legal team quit last week. Because you wanted them to make an argument that they didn't believe in that That he the election was stolen from him. I'm not quite sure exactly. Who will step up to testify. We've seen after even some republicans in the house and the senate who are sticking their necks out yet to say that they'll though vote quit the pride of the former president and so if they are even hesitant but people who defended him the strongest the past five years. It's it's gonna be surprising to see anyone. Stop up to strongly and defend him. And i don't know that there really a defense for his actions but as you mentioned something earlier that dick urban earlier today Made it a point that i think needs to be considered more often here. This is a very different kind of trial if you can call it that because the members are the witnesses they were there. They saw the remarks so the number of people who actually have to testify might be very different because a number of them could themselves themselves testify if they wanted to but they absolutely knew what happened and dick durbin said he may not be the one to talk about and decide to witnesses. That's the managers of the house managers and the president's own legal team but he said he wants to make sure that the truth of what happened that day comes out as it stands right now they would need seventeen republican members of the senate to convict. They do not have anywhere near that. At least folks saying on the record how they're gonna vote at this point But you know we'll have to wait and see what happens next week. But let's talk about congressman. Adam kinser a republican from illinois. He was one of only eleven republicans to vote to oust controversial freshman congresswoman. Marjorie taylor green from committees. Here is what they had to say. I didn't hear an apology..

Now for the week in review our rick pearson of the chicago tribune maurici opinion of blocked club chicago. Craig delamore of wbz newsradio and nater isa of the chicago sun times. I tonight no news. No deal negotiations between lori. Lightfoot chicago teachers union broke down so what is next. The mayor's frustration has been palpable. All week take a look. This is about our kids. Mrs about our kids about our kits for me. That's the only thing that matters times out runway done. We need to deal to day. Nader isa hot off the presses. You just filed a story within the last five minutes where these negotiations stand right now. Think they stand in a similar place. They did yesterday and the day before and the day before the day before. And it's just there hasn't been much movement. And i think the mayor we just heard her Those two days ago or yesterday. Maybe she needed today. While it's it's the next day and they're still no deal in booking like they're going to be a dual this weekend and so the mayor has kept issuing these ultimatums. We need a deal. We're gonna lock out teachers if they don't show up and then she gives drawing this line in the sand and then stopping stepping over it and so negotiations are sensitive place right now. I think they're close everything. I hear the whole package. They aren't close. This isn't this isn't something that Twenty nineteen there. Were miles apart. The timeline for one to return is a big issue right now. The seats us looking at having teachers and staff back by march eight as reported today and cbs's looking at some summer closer to me. Fifteenth worry twenty second and march first. So they're only a couple of weeks apart from each other than there's these issues accommodations for members who are with with medically vulnerable household members. I think that gets solemn. If they do push it back a couple of weeks and let people get vaccinated and so it's an talk place. I don't i don't know that There there really needs to be this counter strike but it looks like or rick pearson in the mayor said a week ago that if teachers didn't show up at the cps was going to lock them out of their online learning platform. The google the google the microsoft platform that they use now. She's saying it again if they don't show up monday they're not going to be able to teach online. Is that an empty threat or for real. You think well. I think they are. Touched honored the fact that she keeps drawing these lines in the sand and then never follows through with them. And that i think is only given more impetus for c. To you to keep pushing for what it wants. I mean. I certainly think there's a lot of frustration on all sides. Certainly you know parents want to see kids back in school if done safely with teachers leveque combinations as nater mentioned combinations for those teachers who have special at risk family members. You also have the children coming to school. And well there is a not a great preponderance of those who have been found to have cove ed. They do carry it and what about those families as well. I mean this is. There's a lot of things at play here but we have even talked about the fact of. There's no schedule yet. For high school students return right and they might not return it all this year. Craig delamore you heard the mayor talking about vaccines. The cps has offered fifteen hundred vaccinations per week mayor. Saying if we're to give what the to you wants and no one else is going to get vaccinated in the city. Is that true whether it's exactly true or not. Certainly the bulk of the of the shots would be going to the teachers and it seems as if that's one of those areas where they could come a bit closer but you know i it's sometimes it seems as if this is a game of chicken but the children and the parents are in the cars that are hurtling toward each other. And you know i think in the end. It's going to be the parents who were gonna be in the driver's seat because either they're going to send their children to the schools or they're not and that will probably be what really drives. How many teachers are wear is parents need to send their children in versus how many parents are afraid to send their children in a game of chicken but the cars have been stuck in park for a couple of weeks instead of barreling toward each other maurici opinion. What about parents i mean. Where do they fall on this. We saw statistics over the last several weeks especially in black and brown communities parents were reticent to send their kids back yeah. I'm hearing a mix of things from from karen so you know there are parents who are hesitant to to send their kids back in. There are also parents who are essential workers who don't have the luxury of staying home so they need that child care. They need in person learning. So it's it's a a knicks from what i'm hearing from parents teresa. What about the politics at play here as this goes on teachers unions actively in springfield pushing the governor to sign a bill that would broaden what they can strike over. Take us inside the politics at play here. Yes lawyer mentioning. It's it's a provision. In educational labor relations law section four point five of the illinois educational labor relations act. It's been in place. Since nineteen five the state senate repealed it a few weeks ago and what it would do basically return a lot of bargaining rights to the seat. You over issues that fall outside of the sort of bread and butter labor issues like pain benefits. It just essentially governors yesterday i. It's not clear yet whether he's going to sign it whether he's basically going to insert himself into the middle of the ups battle but if he does sign it gives you a huge huge leg up in spite because just last week There were a couple suburban district one of them. Cicero and stockton in against it school district making the same exact argument that the seats you took and failed in the same court. And so the difference. There is that section four point five that has been repealed but not. Officially by the governor's signature. Senator something to keep an eye on if you had the gas. Will there be teachers in schools on monday. Will there be online learning. Will there be in person learning. Will there be a deal or none of it. Been trying not to make predictions or bests. Maybe we can do some super bowl squares over we. I don't know every every day every hour. This thing change is my guess is that the there is not going to be a deal over the weekend. Now i'm sure in a couple of days it'll be wrong about that but if there is no deal. The teachers aren't going to be showing up on monday. It's it's cps is now demanding a preschool in special education classroom teachers so they're likely not going to show up. Cps that will trailer blackouts though be blocked from teaching remote. The has said that would trigger a strike. Were it's the same exact situation we were in last week.

All the mayor said yesterday that both sides were going to take the next 48 hours. Just cool down to figure things out and then come back to the table. However. Now both sides did agree upon some key points, but it's not enough to get the students back in the classroom just yet. Now kindergarten through eighth grade graders were supposed to start in person learning yesterday, however, the battle between CPS and CTU continues. Keeping soon is going with the learning that the mayor and city CPSC over a joint statement saying common ground has been met. On four key points, which include health and safety protocols, ventilation, contact tracing and health and safety committees in the midst of the fighting, Though a group of parents are feeling like they're voiceless, and their concerns are not being met. Some participated in the sick out yesterday, not allowing their students to engage in the learning. Take a listen. Parents don't necessarily feel that it's safe to return their kids to school right now, but they want to you. This isn't about I want to keep my kids home. This is about the plan is not working as it's set. And if you involved us in the planning and gave us a voice, we could help make this happen. Both sides plan to speak again tomorrow to work on reaching an agreement and later on this morning, still will have one of those CTU board members song to discuss what's gonna happen within this 48 hours. And what's going to happen after that, when they come back to the table and possibly get an agreement for now reliable side of CPS headquarters include Marshal WGN news.

CPS, CTU Avoid Teacher Lockout, Remote Learning to Continue During ‘Cooling Off' Period

"Chicago. Public schools is in session tomorrow. A lockout and strike have been averted but for how long amanda finicky joins us now with more. Amanda does yes within the past hour or so we got word from both. cps and the chicago teachers union that remote learning will continue at least for tomorrow and wednesday. Today was to have been the first day back in the classroom for kindergarten. Through eighth graders who wanted to return to physical school instead. It was another day of virtual learning as negotiations progress. This is a sort of last minute. Maneuvering that is frustrating for whiplash parents like ryan griffin. It's a fiasco for parents for twenty four hundred students. I can't underestimate how disruptive that is to two families lives especially. you're balancing sharing for other family members. I did speak with griffin earlier this afternoon before the latest news. Which is this. Cps today says that talks led to an important milestone and as such it will not go forward with locking out teachers of their virtual classrooms for refusing to show up in person. Tomorrow or wednesday. And if they're not locked out of the classroom then the union says teachers are not going to strike meaning that they will again show up tomorrow to teach virtually as they as most at least have been. Since last march both sides are signaling optimism that this may be the end of the back and forth we have secured agreement on one other open issue and made substantial progress on a framework that we hope will address the remaining issues. We are calling for a forty eight hour cooling off period that will hopefully lead to a final resolution on all open issues as a result of the progress. We have made and as a gesture of good phase four now. Teachers will retain access to their google suite. That's a statement from both mayor. Lori lightfoot and cps chief janice jackson the chicago teachers union meanwhile calling it heartening that the lightfoot administration will continue bargaining saying that its members. Don't want to strike in this. I know in just a bit. You're going to be speaking with c. You leadership it is not by the way just chicago. That has their eyes on this. Reporters pressed the white house press secretary about chicago central strike this afternoon. She said that. President joe biden respects mayor lightfoot and also teachers noting that first lady jill biden is one. He chose the mayor and the unions to work this out. They're both prioritizing the right things which is ensuring the health and safety of the kids and teachers and working to make sure that children in chicago are getting the education they deserve so he is hopeful. We are hopeful they can reach common ground as soon as possible. Mayor lightfoot meanwhile on national cable news this morning saying she was pushing to seal the last few remaining but tough issues. We're pushing as hard as we can to seal these last few remaining but tough issues. It's not about we don't want to be safe. It's absolutely not about we. Don't respect the rights of organized labor. Chicago's a labor town but this is about balancing a lot of different issues but mostly also about putting our kids i. She says if both sides do that they will reach a in. No time but parents that i talked to stay throughout all of this. They're feeling ignored. Mom of three courtney. Ritsma says she has gone out of her way to learn what schools are doing to make classrooms safe while covid remains a threat participating in all of the cps acts. Ask the experts series that they had I was attending the school town halls. And every time i went it was like left me frustrated because i wasn't getting answers at like most parents at the events. We weren't getting answers to to most of our concerns to our most basic questions. Why she and a group of grass roots parents planned a sick out her kids were purposely absent from their virtual classrooms today stem. Her daughter wrote letters to the principal and learned about boycotting in civil action with the scout. We are trying to kind of doing action that hits the school where it counts. And if you know anything about cps you know that attendance is something they track like crazy and so this is an easy way for us to get a clear representation of one of weakness. And here's how many cps however could not share attendance numbers quickly so it is hard to say how big a success the sickout was now three weeks ago. Another group of parents formed another grassroots group. This is the chicago parents. Collective father of three ryan griffin says. He understands why. Cps wasn't ready to go back to school in august but he says now there's been six months to plan for it but now that we've prepared why not now for at least those that are finding rebel or is not working and that's a big population of students more than double in size of the next largest school district in illinois hunter. We ignore those parents choice for that option griffin says he wants teachers and the district's to at least take some baby steps to get a path so that these students can eventually be in school five days a week safely. Is that post vaccinations. That would be great. We need optimism and we need our leaders to agree on something instead of tuning into press conferences and twitter. The day before. We're supposed to go back to school. He says leaders from side should be setting an example for children. He says parents everyone went through strife back in the twenty nineteen strike and he says they shouldn't have to go through it again during a pandemic now chicago is in the clear at least four two days but there is still no complete deal in in a statement issued the parents. Yes says that while today was he bake agreements several outstanding issues that had been outstanding. Since the summer. They must continue to make what they called meaningful progress because time is running out. Now brenda back to you.

Many of our students aren't logging on. We're seeing African American and latte next students in particular being especially hard hit, and our goal is to really give every parent and option. Those families who want to remain remote will have that option through the remainder of the school year. But we have thousands of families who want an in person option because there is essential workers themselves. So on that CDC plan. I know this report this week got a lot of attention, really urging schools to reopen on DSI ng that transmission can be stopped if master warning their social distancing, But the same report said there should still be restrictions in the community, and it's cited indoor dining. Chicago has already opened its bars and restaurants. How do you feel about that? Yeah, I think we've learned a lot about re opening from the past spring. Definitely prioritizing the reopening of schools has to be at the top of the list. And our mayor has done that. We have re opened bars and restaurants at limited capacity here in the city. But one thing that was really important in that report is that it showed that community spread does not necessarily impact. I'm sprint within a particular school and that implementing mitigating mitigation strategies with Fidelity.

"Winter quarter starts January 4th learn more AT U C L A extension that CTU I'm Jonathan Bastion, and this is life examined on KCRW. We just heard Emily Anthocyanins venture into the indoor world to describing some of the profound and sometimes unexpected ways that indoor spaces shape our lives. Our next guest describes small indoor spaces being a womb for many of our greatest works of literature. Emerson to Wordsworth to Louisa May Alcott and Dan Brown. Creative writing spaces, though often intimate, were far from ideal. Jared Brock is a filmmaker and author. He currently resides in a 600 square foot cottage off the Irish Sea. You're Brock. Welcome to life examined. We appreciate it. Thank you. You've written about creative spaces for a number of years, and I love the work you've done particularly looking at writing spaces of famous authors. What We'll cut you into that topic. What made you so interested in exploring it? Well, I am a full time author and filmmaker, and whenever my wife and I travel, we typically do three things. We eat good food. We tried to visit monasteries and distilleries, and we check out the spaces of famous authors. So I've been to Emerson's Longfellow's dick in Shakespeare having way STO Wesley Whole bunch. Yeah, And And why were you interested in seeing where they worked? I just think because I've always envisioned having this perfect little, you know, British rainy day. Writing Hutch with a fire in a pipe in my mouth. Very Shire Hobbit like and that's never been the reality. So I like to see what it's been like for authors that have touched my life. And their spaces to our very rarely ideal, right and I think, isn't it? It's interesting that I think a lot of us dream of crafting that certain space in which we think we can work. Well, why do you think we have that need in us? What's what's going on there? I think there's potentially two things Jonathan that I've thought about regarding this. One of them is that maybe it's a harkening back to the womb. Or perhaps it's actually a glimpse forward to heaven. It's kind of this place that's safe and perfect and, more importantly, conducive to the act of creation. So it's For me, That's what it feels like It Z either a womb or it's like a desire for something greater on the womb I take. It is maybe more small, intimate space, something like that. Yeah, For sure. Most of these places thinking of Royal Dahl's writing room, it's just a little nicotine stained office with a desk and a chair. And a bunch of knickknacks, including a piece of his own spine, some spinal shavings and a bone from like Just a very strange, tiny little Yeah, but it was home for him. He spent 10 hours a day there for his whole life. Yeah. So Esso is you began T check out some of these really interesting residences in spaces. Were there any themes or, as you said, was a kind of all over the place. I think the only thing that unites them all would be their uniqueness. And by that, I mean, each space was so clearly that person's space like for instance, I I've visited Louisa May Alcott is home. Um, it's in Concord, Massachusetts. It's where she wrote Little women, one of the most moving beautiful, timeless stories about sisterhood and family and her Desk. If you could even call it that is just a board wrapped around a house beam in a frigid addict that they learned later had lead paint, which lead to lifelong Pain and suffering for her. But that's where she wrote one of the most gorgeous stories of all time, and it was just it was so her you know, that was 150 years ago, and you can still feel the life of these sisters. You can still see the staircase where they came down to perform their plays before their mother. Um Every place I visited. I'm like, Oh, that is so clearly, Dylan Thomas's writing shed. Oh, that is clearly John Wesley's preachers booth, right? And I know you also You visited the home of the mega bestseller Dan Brown. And he wrote in a pretty austere, quiet spot as well, didn't he? Actually, he's on my list. I haven't visited his house. Yeah, he he has a very amazing It's got, like, uh, revolving walls and all sorts of secret, Cool chambers and stuff, But, um, before he made all this money He actually wrote the outline for Divinci code on an ironing board in his parents laundry closet, talk about not ideal place to write a blockbuster work of fiction so interesting. And yet it's sort of like J. K. Rowling writing her early books in a coffee shop, You know, you just make do with what you've got where you're at, and that's really the definition of success when it comes to The writing is As an author myself. I can't just wait for women for the whimsy and I can't wait for inspiration. You just have to work and, you know, I wrote my first book in an addict. Michelle's aunt's house in Marlborough, Massachusetts. No WiFi And that was great. But I've written other books in completely different places, and none of them have been ideal. It's always going to be painful. And yet hopefully something beautiful comes out of it. And I think what you're talking to speaks to maybe the essence of creativity, which is as much as we're looking. Maybe for for that perfect space for you know the right set of ingredients. It's an internal practice. It's about going inside of ourselves, isn't it? 100%. I think that probably the place that that is. Most became most evident to me. Jonathan was when I visited William Wordsworth south in the Lake District in England. It's called Dove Cottage, Centuries old little tiny Stone cottage. He lived in there with himself, his sister, his wife, his sister in law. He's three kids and a couple of servants. It's on Lee. You know 5 600 Square feet, no hallways to go from room to room. You simply go through each room, so there's no privacy. And yet in this little space, he said, that we did. We did many years of plain living and high thinking, And it was during that time that he wrote the play Rude. Sorry. The prelude ode to duty and his most.

"We are out today at 2 25. Because we're gonna make room for the CTU buffs pregame show. They got a basketball game coming up. And right now the wind. Yogi is in the house. We're talking wine glasses were talking wine presence, and I have been gnashing on some delicious cheese from spring side cheese shop in Pueblo, and I'm not saying That the cheese alone is worth the drive to Pueblo. But I might be very close to saying that what kind of cheese do we have? Today s o. We have a cave man blew that Z from a different Spring bigger? Yeah, super super moldy ifs. If you're not if you don't like blue cheese, you're not gonna like this. But if you like, super stinky, moldy blue cheese like I do, it is like heaven on a plant it is. We also have Their award winning cheese curd, which is the basic cheese cheddar. That's the most immature cheese cheddar that is used to form cheddar blocks that they've mixed in with Pantaleo farms, roasted green chilies for Donna publicist, public green chilies and Chuck who does not like green chiles has to clear that absolutely delicious. So there you go, and then we got a deal. Yes, we have it. It's a Dylan Garlic Monterey Jack front that's made by spring side up in their accounting falls, Wisconsin. So if Cheeseheads listening A concert falls Wisconsin factory and then you ask him another Monterey Jack, that I brought, which is an onion and chive The onion and chive is off the chain. I mean, it is. The deal is super dilly. So if you love deal, you're gonna love this cheese. It's a little too much dill for me. I like Dylan pickles, but you know, little There was one of those things like Cilantro. Yeah, You know you love it, or you are like kind of hot and cold. That cheese is good, but it's not my favorite, but the onion that one is crazy. Good. Let's talk for a second about glasses because the other thing in this article we were referencing in the last Segment, the wine that the small you who wrote the article was trying to kind of simplify wine. And she said, Look, You don't need a glass for every different kind of wine. The whole glass thing just poured in the glass and be done with it. I'm paraphrasing, but that's kind of what she said. And I re read the article last night. She also said My father was a class maker, so that was her number that was her supporting argue. Andre. I did kind of take serious umbrage with that because I have had that experience where you go from a different glass to it. A glass more suited for the wine that you're enjoying. Now I'm not saying that you need to go out and buy a different type of glass for every kind of wanting you like to drink. There's several universal the fancy fancy. One of the very end is just a universal high quality wine glass. Let me tell you what Crystal just did to me on the break. She said. Okay, try. I want you to smell all of these wines in these glasses. She has a kind of a very simple I would call it a Shibly glass. Now, I would say this is your standard v r b o Airbnb. When you go to the dollar store, you go to the dollar store. That's the wine glasses. They have their very nice. Yeah, they're functional. And then she has a stem bliss glass that I don't have nice, bold bottom. So it has. Ah, you know, a narrower Up, and then it kind of gets bigger on the bottom little markets this as a cabernet sauvignon or merlot by Frank Glass. And then she has this gorgeous, long legged. Tiny stemmed. Why'd bottom look comes up to a nice It's very fair skinned. And so I smell them all. They all smell totally different. And then I found out same wine. Same line and when I say they all smell totally different, they all smell completely different. Like you're smelling three different ones. Grant is a skeptic with us. So one of the reasons why they do smell different is and I made sure that man he took a look is the bowl itself. So when you look at the base of the glass, and you look at the real estate, so in our V R vo Airbnb glass that you would find in most of those kinds of places Very sturdy glass. It's very thick. It's Dallas. It's not Krystal right on, and it has a very, very tiny base right where the wine sits. It's a very small kind of real estate footprint. The wine itself on the top, where it's been exposed to oxygen is also very, very small. Then you move to that stimulus glass. So the bottom of the base of Apple is it's flat and it but it's bigger and then you look at the Where the wind kind of sits. If your report normal size class, it's a much bigger surface area that's going to be exposing your wine to oxygen, which helps. Oh, helps it open up. And bring out all the different flavors that you're smelling and tasting and oxygen isn't ingredient. When it comes to wine tasting, it has to be oxygen changes the flavor of wine as its incorporated into the wine, So it's not a no big deal thing right to say that it's exposed to more. That's why you swirl. You see people, they they swirl and they're looking at the legs. The main purpose of doing that is to introduce up oxygen and heir to the wine to help it. Open up. That's why we have a Raiders, which is one of the gifts II brought in. But then when you get to the hand blown crystal, this is a lead free crystal. Now we're getting into When you're talking about glass, the glass itself is interacting with the wine, right? Wine is very interactive. That's why we agent in oak barrels. Okay, It's very interactive. It picks up things so it will pick up your detergent from Washington glass in your dishwasher. Then you get to see you start getting into crystal so crystal, much finer thinner. It's allowing more surface there. You could see just between the two, the Beetle and the salt. Oh, glad there's easily another inch of surface area in diameter on the fancy glass than there is in the stem list glass, which is also you know, And so that's just allowing. You can also see how easy it just swirls in the glass. It's just so natural. Environment for the wine to kind of really open up and be true to itself. I am gonna post a picture of all three of these glasses on my instagram page. But Crystal has Ah, blogged. Posting with explanations of all this stuff is well, that's linked to the block today as well. Now we got to get through some gifts here, and we're not even getting to the wine yet. As we have delicious bubbly we have to talk about and we literally have seven minutes left. Okay, So the main gift that I would emphasize we've talked about a Corvin before. But if the listeners were interested, I've included a picture. You included a picture on your blogged Corvin is your higher end gift for your wine enthusiasts about to 79. Last time I checked, and then the Argonne cartridges. They're not. They're not expensive either. I just had a Corbin to let people know what Corvin Is a device that allows you to puncture a wine cork. Pour out one glass regret. Corvin. You removed the Corvin. And then the wine is essentially sealed. So we are gonna, Yes, I don't drink a bottle of wine. I drink a glass of wine and so according, is an amazing gift for someone who just enjoys a nice bottle of wine, but doesn't want to drink a whole bottle of wine. So that's AH, That's the core of it is about this little What is that? That's a soiree. It's a narrator So what it does has it instead of you. Maybe folks probably seen the victory where you pour through the aerator this and also, by the way, Corvin has a narrator attachment as well. But this actually a rates the wine as you're pouring it into a glass. And then, as the wind goes back into the bottle and out of the bowl of the narrator itself, it irritates the wine that's now in the bottle. I love this because I have had to Cantor's I lose them there, break easily. They're hard to wash, and I don't love it the cancer But this is literally keeps saying literally and a guy just pointed it out to me. And now I can't stop. It's a small blown bowl that sits into your wine bottle. That you pour the wine through. So as you're pouring wine, it's getting aerated. And as you kept the bottle back, it's continuing to bring that oxygen getting the double whammy, which is fantastic, and it helps those young tight lines open up a lot quicker. And then, finally, the glasses themselves. I did mention the regal stimulus glasses that you can pick up pairs of those or even sleaze of them. At like that bath and beyond pretty inexpensive. This auto is another gift that if you do have a wine enthusiast to is hoity toity pinkies out kind and you want to give him a really nice gift and spend a little bit more money on him. They're sold individually. And so if you have somebody like that they have lots of different styles based off of if they're a cab drinker, Chardonnay drinker, and you can go that route. I would love to recommend something that I learned from my friend Steve Sims, who's written a book about how to how to meet incredibly fantastic people..
