And what am i going to do to make money off this raza kit with you talking about. And they're like man what he got to lose. Just come try it all right cool all right then in realistically. I didn't have anything to lose at that point so i went. I went with them to the studio sessions. I was really green I had to learn how to write songs. Because i knew how to write raps but had to learn how to write songs and i had a couple of good guides to help me with that transition and i wrote some sauce for mellow honest. I did you know sort of got me back in rhythm to to writing. You know wraps actually turn them into songs and stuff like that so it put me in a different place you know like i caught the fever and slowly distribute. I found myself less on the block gang and more in studio trend right emotional better than what we're up to right. No not at the time. Starring jack nothing on the street. I was making money every day. You know illegally on unfortunately and obviously but yeah. I had cash in hand every day So that that wasn't necessarily a big problem. But what i was doing and if i had got caught doing what i was doing it wasn't going to be a good day for me at all because you know there's the path of the gang banger. Is you know one of either. You're very fortunate and you lived through it and if you're you change your life to something else and you find something and you create a family in you know. Just get out of that life or there is the grave or the jail cell or the wheelchair and some you know in the wheelchair you know the that you could be in prison cell in now wheelchair living life or or live in life in that cell in that wheelchair free you fill me. You know what i mean so there's only a few pathways for gang. Bangers you know what it means so for me. It was like at first. I wasn't even thinking about music. I was i was totally soldiering and buying into that and When i realized that i could still write and i had the ability to learn how to do more and and and be more creative with it. Yeah that that sort of took me out of the mindset like that bullshit on the street and is in all that i can do i can do more and this is it right here so is sort of little by little it took me a while to shake it all off but Little by little. I started being more present in the studio than than on the street in my friends on the street understood that they never you know. Tried to reel me back in or give me a guilt trip for not being there. They were always supportive. Like a go do that. You don't hear that very often go do that. That's better the nist and you know that. I was fortunate in now house. Blessed did so what year was cypress hill that they form and you got form in eighty eight. Yeah well you know sent an. I've known each other since nineteen eighty-four and we met mugs. And i think eighty five or eighty six and then you know we start taking it serious. In maybe eighty seven known. Ninety seven probably eighty nine in maybe through eighty eight to ninety one when we got signed. That's what we've really started focusing in and trying to make something. It took us three four years before we add anything that was you know worth worth putting our name on. But then you know we just sort of heard Not too long ago when our thirty year anniversary came came up just before that we were filming our documentary. That's coming out next year in mugs broke out. Some of those old demos in and my voice is completely different. At the time. I it was before i figured out how to pitch my voice up in in make it a little bit different so it could cut through and you know. The demos were bad Even even with my different tone. You know i guess we were just striving for more. So what we were doing at that. Time wasn't enough but here and back. It wasn't bad he could hear the foundations of where we were. Gonna you know we would eventually go and It was just a trip to see that because you know you forget about those songs. Those songs are far behind you especially when they're not on the album but Yeah you know it took. It took three to four years to actually make the first album and The we put a lot into that a lot of focus a lot of effort. We shut everybody. That was negative to us out. Didn't allow them to be around. No no people that we're going to try to second guess us we just hunker down us. Three in the studio and Focused in our friends understood that they allowed us. That that Room to be creative in do what we were gonna do. Brian kevin question i did. I always wondered as you speak of the early days. You guys came up in those early days of gangsta rap. Why was making a big push to the mainstream. You actually live that life could you. I always i always imagine there were guys who live at life and wrapped about it and guys who maybe as we say were fronting or could you could you. Could you tell who was. Maybe not the real deal. Who was the real deal like movies. There's great actors so you just don't know until someone calls someone out on that and like man. That dude went to this school. He grew up. Here never lived that life. You know 'cause none of us really do investigative work on the sixth sense about it or you know like put it this way right If you've lived that life you're only going to tell so much of the story because if you're if you're talking limitations right you're only gonna you're gonna tell so much when someone is way like beyond graphic in that story of the gangster shit. They're their pop and they're doing too much Just anyone anyone wrap a so called true story until you everything look. The police listened to these songs. Now the fbi. Let's listen to these songs now. They all do dan. How the guy that's how the guy got popped with the checks coming in right the guy with eight rap and about if fraud from cova check coming in and they they they listen and they watch in. It would be stupid if someone to like. Just tell on themselves on assault and and and in back in the day before you had all this all the technology that we have in these platforms. Yeah you could see when someone was was embellishing because you know a real gangster gonna sit there and tell on himself. That's a good point. You just scenario in a couple little things but he ain't going to be like descriptive because then you know your outta here. Well thank stitching on yourself. Think about how little you know about your dad over truck rolling stone man. i've probably got brothers enlisted. I know of. I got twelve brothers and sisters half brothers and sisters..

You know the work that they gave you to ask yourself a lot of questions Like i saw the difference in. So i will say that it was worth it for me because it was just a difference day night in terms of how they walked us early. Yeah really good. Yeah studios really really awesome. But okay all day and their riders actually did take the time to figure out your message some places. They don't do that really kind rely. Yeah or or it's like. Oh note that really blows right know but you can actually tell that they took the time to figure out how to flow with your message because once again when they come to your web page you know the parents or whoever this is their way of meeting you. Yeah yeah you're absolutely right. How has from the moment. You decided to do this till right now. How would you say all of this has affected your personal life. i would say you have to prioritize. Arise taking care of you as well right priority to rise getting a good night's rest. You have to prioritize rise. Exercising still Rise making sure that you're eating healthy because when you have all this stuff going on even easily like find a reason to stay up late because it's something that you always need to be doing right always I can't tell you. How many times like netflix has been my friend while i'm on the computer like you know like those guys. Yes you know like you know. The new season of the crown came out. So i'm like.

That's different from my beaner so like that's something that's got to get order this week. Because i know the holiday rush is coming up with the with delivering and delays. And all of that. So i would say you know if you just try to look at. What are the three things that you have to get done for that day and then the rest you just deal with the next. Yeah yeah you're absolutely right. Why why three things. Okay well maybe you can be five things right but you once again on a late in the action. Courage you Because they help you to come up with a ninety day plan to in terms of what you're gonna d. and each week but you you have to keep it something.

I really want that to be part of the process before we get the permitting. But i'm just saying it's got to be achievable something that you can do in new. You're absolutely right. I i read that somewhere to it says like just do three things like five would-be too much. You know what. I mean like one is like okay. Maybe it can do another one but three things is like. I don't know what it is like the perfect number. I do that too. I do exactly what you said. I just started doing that like this year. Where i liked being able to slight cross it out in order to stay. It's done. yeah. And then.

Now this is something entirely near this is who come up cyclically disgust every so often. And so in a way. You know again it's you know one of these ideas and they'll never come to fruition. But as you said on Tuesday nights totta made the announcement while he was nine crowd that is going to be open today, not the whole town, just the beachfront But the really significant thing about this is that that was just five days away from the presidential elections in no Cypress scheduled to be held on Sunday Ersan Tatars candidate in those elections and I think the really interesting thing you mentioned that it's this announcements is met with a huge amount of opposition from. A Greek Cypriots and from Greece is also met with quad loss of opposition from Turkey separates as well It says caused the government of North. Cyprus a coalition government collapsed to one junior partner said it was pulling out that coalition and so her fide by this kind of sudden announcement and submit Prank and I think you know lots of people that know Cypress particularly Essen Tatas political opponents thing. But he's really using this as a kind of political stunt to give him the edge in Sunday's elections but I mean it's illegal isn't it? How does Turkey justify it? It. Is Legal Yeah as you said, according to the UN if anyone's going to be resettled in Russia, they have to be the original residents, most of whom were Greek separates. Now thought present factors has recognized the ship of the proper does the commission up. To, look into how the original owners of properties in brochure could be compensated Most of those people wanted some kind of compensation. Some wanted their properties back. But yeah. The fact is you know if any redevelopment of that town is going take place, there's this two major issues in all Cyprus firstly is the town the for forty six years has just been crumbling into the ground. It's GonNa take music. You're going to have to be kind of a demolished and reconstructed which might work, and secondly that is an she is going to cost Cyprus huge amounts of money if they want to do this in the kind of legal and proper way, and let's not forget the no. Cypress's is a country this only recognized by Ankara, it's pretty widely embargoed eighty four. For its economic survival is much propped up by Ankara saying it's places kind of ready access to to the funds needed to do something like this. So I think the question amongst. People position or is this just an election stunt? Is The beach just going to be open for feed is a member. She was just going to be closing lucky walls before a finally Hannah. How this feed into Turkeys dispute with European Union members Cypress and Greece territorial rights in the eastern Mediterranean. Yes sure I mean I think it's coincidence that is nouncement was made in Ankara. The obviously, no cypresses almost entirely dependent on anchor for it survivor. Essen Tatars. I said is the is kind of anchors favored consciousness elections, but we'll see this is why dispute going on in Syria and Cyprus and in the eastern Mediterranean more broadly which she the tickets very much. The House of it's about the converged UNSEE gas. It's about maritime sovereign say on that those people down over the past few weeks rather still not been resolved and I. Think this is hugely emotional for for separates greek-cypriots particularly, and it's just another thing I. think no guide to sort of. Prolong this arguments this maritime arguments niece.
"cypress" Discussed on Taking Care in Business
"It is a corporate responsibility to look into your supplier diversity or supply chain. It is a corporate responsibility to look at your HR. So our goal is to break down silos and you'll have to bring all of those functions and areas in your business together to really make change, and then finally the community. That fourth pillar This is where we see a lot of action but we WANNA define being a good corporate citizen through leadership money and time which means we'll be looking at the non people of color serving as advisers. So what that means is although we will be looking at black people serving on boards. There's value in having white people serve as advisers to block organizations if there's a cfo an accountant or chief of marketing At a fortune five, hundred company or any organisation that could look back and go to the CFO counting or marketing person of a block organization help them do better in those block organizations there's power there. They can write checks, move mountains and open doors that we just can't do for ourselves. So we WANNA look at that as part of being part of the community will also be looking at the money and the our spent volunteering with black organizations, and we'll also be looking at the number of black led initiatives, support it, which means black people raise their hands or have an agenda that these corporations if they have lobbyists or if they have A. Opportunity to be leaders. In this space, we want them to go to the board rooms, go to the State House and support black organizations with these black let initiative..
Treasures Looted in War
"So. Can you tell me what cultural heritage is and why it's important? Well. Cultural Heritage is essentially what represents the shared common history that a group of people might have and it can be something very specific as pertaining to single group of people a country, a region, or it could be a worldwide issue. My name is allows Lauzon I may professor of Middle East history not apology at Shawnee State University in Ohio. Cultural artifact top caught of your heritage. So if we're thinking of post cultural heritage, you're thinking of the remains left by ancient peoples, civilizations et Cetera, and these can be archaeological sites, archaeological monuments, and also artifacts left behind an if I can be something as simple as a stone tool, a sickle, a mortar and pestle that's used to produce food to something extremely elaborate, intricate and very, very beautiful. So, how big of a problem is the looting of art and Cultural Heritage of cultural artifacts. Looting is a huge problem, but it's also important to point that right away that it's not a new problem, it's a problem as all this human history itself. As long as we have had tombs, we've had tomb raiders as long as there have been civilizations. You know they're spent an army waiting on the next hill to come in and plunder them. We've seen throughout history that culture has always been a weapon of war. I Am Test Davis, and I'm executive director of the antiquated coalition and not for profit organization in Washington who. Starts in places like war-torn Cambodia, war-torn Cypress, or torn Iraq, or Yemen, or Libya the list goes on and on. And this is funding conflict. It is funding terrorism and it certainly funding crime around the world, which is why everyone should care about it. Regardless of whether they're interested in culture arts for preservation. One. Problem that everyone has faced who's working in this area as that so many view this as a white collar victimless crime, and that's if they've you at a crime at all, that's not the case it might end up a white collar crime at the end, but it doesn't start that way and these are cultural objects and they really run the gamut from those fatter looted from archaeological sites or. From museums or other collections and war zones, and then trafficked by armed groups either to finance the hostilities or sometimes by individuals to exploit them for personal gain from the perspective of an archaeologist, a historian I, you know when artifacts removed from its context we lose priceless history that were never going to get back again many of these are sacred objects that were never meant to be bought and sold. They are pieces that were you know hacked off of a Hindu temple or Buddha shrine they're not meant to be commodities and many of sacred places there still sacred places. And when object is taken from them it's as if it's destroyed because you know that villager in that village never going to see it again. And you know it matters a great deal to these communities. When an artifact is improperly removed from its resting place, the damage can't be undone. The losses are devastating. So what's driving the looting? Areas like the Middle East are extremely rich in cultural heritage, every Syrian lives either on top of large logical site right next door to knock logical side or within a stones throw of an archaeological site. Now you put stress you put a conflict you put a situation where people lose their livelihoods and they will turn to looting and so much in fact of the looting that we see today in conflict countries like Syria likely. Be Like Yemen is very much associated with what we referred to a subsistence looting people will turn to loot in order to survive to make ends meet to try and find additional source of income, and suddenly there is a long established history as well of criminal elements, Mafias, gangs, or corrupt officials in many of these countries. So you find that added factory making looting lucrative, but also highly destructive as we see when it's completely uncontrolled.

Serbia-Kosovo talks 'back on track
"Now Serbia has refused to recognize Kosovo's statehood since Kosovo unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in two thousand and eight, nearly a decade after a very bloody war dialogue between Belgrade and Prishtina began in two thousand eleven, producing some thirty agreements most of them, though a not observed, but after talks broke down a couple of years ago, the parties are communicating again with both the EU and the US weighing in well for more I'm joined by James, Kara Lindsay who's visiting professor at the NFC and author of the politics of recognition and engagement, e you, member-state relations with Kosovo James Let's begin with the US involvement. Where do we stand with this? Well. There was a lot of excitement that the united. States was getting involved in this process a couple of years ago. There was a sense Washington really wants it's gets are. Big International Agreement. This was going to be one of trump's moments of glory. That was going to get reelected. And so there was a lot of activity that was going on. By the United States role, the separate from the e U process switch continuing as you've noted since two thousand eleven. But recently it's basically collapsed in this collapse for number of reasons one because they would charges brought against the presidents of Kosovo. For War Crimes but also I think that we just up against the clock in the United States Rick. Grenell the US ambassador to Germany, who was handling this? It looks like he's going to be very involved in trump's reelection campaign, and as we know it less than four months to go before the US election. I, think the latest sellings way hand over to Europe is saying look I've. Got To be dealing with now, so the ball is very very certainly back in the European court now and there was a video summit on Friday chaired by the the the Cherry double-act Merckel macron. What what transpired? The the problem as Well. There's a whole range of problems. As again as you noted as being a range of agreements have been put in place over the past, a number of years most which haven't really been observed, but there's also been deep divisions within the European Union about what they want. Now there's been a number of proposals being coming forward a nice been suggestions that the President Sukasto vote and Serbia. Actually at one point very close to a deal, but controversially that would include some so the territorial swap and we know that Germany in actual fact Britain as well a very very opposed to this. The. Americans on the other hand seem to be open to the idea although they seem to be a rowing buckle now now. I'm so the probably essentially have is that we need a big picture secondments here and the Europeans have been pressing so small normalization agreements, which is all very well and good boots. As I'm saying I worked Cypress pathetic years, and these small agreements, a justice difficult to get into place, and even more typical in many ways to implement than actually spending time focusing on a big picture final deal, and so I think this is the real question about half now. Is it going to be back to try to get these piecemeal agreements that don't really work or all week in the focus on the big picture? Final settlements. Will really put this issue behind both Kosovo. and Serbia and of course that question becomes very urgent, because it looks as if the leaders of Serbia in Kosovo will meet face to face in Brussels later this week. Yes I'm I mean to be honest with you? I don't think anyone's really expecting that. We can see any big breakthroughs now. and I again. I'm I'm very very skeptical that you're really even knows what it wants. the IT could be a return to these sort of. These small bitsy talks which you don't get me wrong. These are important things that needs to be doubts which will make long foot for people in costumes survey much better. But like a Lotta people a my view is the you sold. If they were the big picture deal, anyway and so what you're doing is many ways wasting time on energy block treasurer on all these trying to get these small agreements, which in the end don't really get implemented because that fundamental big picture agreement so. I I think the big problem here is that it's it's. Europe's coming at the wrong way. I mean Europe officials as saying that resolution is the only way that Serbia and Kosovo seek to become members of the EU. Do you think that that's a big enough incentive? Well. I mean I. Get sent certainly in Kosovo there is. A growing realization something needs to be done so often. Votes Clayton dependency. The was that we go from. There was a we've got. The Americans behind US rebuilt the British the French recalled Germans. They're going to go out and tell. The world recognized Kosovo and in the first few years. That seems to be what was happening and we got to a point where about one, hundred ten or hundred thirteen of the one hundred ninety three members of the UN recognized. Kosovo But Russia and China refuse to recognize it, so that prevents full you and membership, but what we've seen in the past couple of years is Serbia's lobbied countries to withdraw that recognition of Kosovo is now recognized about ninety seven countries so I think in Prishtina this realization if we want to join the UN if we want to be a normal, fully accepted country on the world stage, we've got to reach a final deal with Belgrade. What is it that we? We can offer Belgrade. The Belgrade might be willing to accept. The trump is what it sink. President Sanctuary was willing to offer Belgrade's. The German said No. We're not willing to allow it to go that far because if you stop changing borders between Serbian, Kosovo. Even if this is consensual, you'll not problems north Macedonia and Bosnia so we we have a fundamental problem here of how we're going to deal with something that frankly speaking could be dealt with sally easily. If, there was sort of coincidence abuse amongst the Americans, the Europeans, subs and the Kosovo Albanians James. Thank you very much? Indeed, that's James Collins.

Why Deadhead Logs Are So Rare and Valuable (w/ Kevin OConnor) and Why Traveling Makes You Tired
"When you think about buried treasure. You probably don't think about trees ends lumber and yet dead logs are sought after because they could make you rich if you're willing to risk your life for them today to share the story is Kevin O'Connor who set of the Emmy me winning home improvement series this old house. He just wrapped the first season of his new podcast clear story which sheds light on the surprising stories behind our homes and today Kevin joins us with a brief history of dead head logs. Starting with what happened when European colonists I arrived in America hundreds of years ago when when the colonists I got here they were looking for resources and there were abundant resources. It was Virgin growth forest here in this continent Literally a billion acres of this continent of this country covered in trees and for better for worse we harvested them pretty aggressively throughout the seventeen and eighteen hundreds And in the process we took some magnificent supplies eastern white pines signs that were two hundred feet tall straight as an arrow that had been growing for one hundred years and were forty feet around we harvested them in mass those northern northern forests of Minnesota that we ship down the Great Lakes. We clear cut him. We cleaned MINNESOTA. We clear. Cut Him in Maine New Hampshire and in that process because of the era we would cut the trees down in the winter when the ground was frozen and then we get an ox to pull them across a C and snowy paths. Because how else would you move them through the mud and dirt did it. When the ground was slippery yes stack them up on the banks of rivers which were frozen but when the spring came and the snow melted and the rivers rose? You could float the logs from MINNESOTA DOWN TO CHICAGO OR FROM MAINE DOWN TO BOSTON and float him right up to the mills which were along rivers. You'd bring him in chop them up. And it was the heyday of timbering and logging in this this country. And while millions of these things made it from the forest to the mills thousands or hundreds of thousands got stuck along the way and they went to the bottom of Rivers rivers and is a weird thing. That happens when a piece of wood. Big Tree full-size goes to the bottom of a river. It is preserved like like I don't know what in from out of the died a frog and formaldehyde for science there preserved perfectly and they sit there for hundreds of years and now with the virgin forests. All gone all all this Beautiful slow growth timber all gone. There's only one place to get. It gets at the bottom of rivers and their guys who put on snorkel gear scuba gear and they will dive down into black murky rivers. They will literally list risk their lives and we talked to guys who get pinned under logs that way hundreds of pounds or rushed to the hospital because they got bit by poisonous trying to get this stuff but when they get it it's treasure they bring it up and it's beautiful and it could be five hundred or a thousand or two thousand years old and when you slice into it you're the first person to ever use it and see it and it's remarkable so it's rare it's coveted did and if you can find it you can sell it for a whole bunch of Dow because people really really want. Okay so what makes this stuff. So valuable depends on who you ask. I think if you talked to norm Abram who was our master carpenter on a shell legendary carpenter He will tell you it was the beautiful all in unique color of it and also the stability you know if the tree grew for five hundred years in the forest it grew very slowly slowly and we know that means that the rings are closer together which means the rain is tighter and that gives the woods stability and it's very difficult today because things go very fast and we force it and we farm it so he will tell you. It's that unique color the beauty as well as stability. I would argue with them a little a bit. Those things certainly are incredibly important but I think today the most important thing is it has story if you can sit there in your house talking to a guest or friend or even if you had to sell the idea to your spouse and you can point to this thing and say that lumber. I was here when Christopher Columbus showed up it went to the bottom of a river at the heyday of the logging industry. In this country it was was pulled up by a crazy guy a scuba tank and then we sliced through the Cyprus and Carter all the way up here to put it in the floor of this house you got yourself a story and you got yourself just a an invaluable thing. That's what our houses are there. Things that make us feel comfortable. They are the things that we like to show off. There are things that we like to share in that it it just it checks all the boxes right. You're making me really want one. Don't you want one. I could put you into a thousand year old piece of Cypress for eighty bucks a board foot. I'll get back to you on that. That would again.

Samuel there are a lot of elements at play when you travel the can add up to that that sleepy feeling the biggest though is boredom. I mean whether you're in a plane train or automobile. There's not a whole lot to keep you occupied on a long trip. A study study in two thousand seventeen found that the same part of the brain. That's responsible for motivation can also produce sleep so when there's nothing particularly motivating around. We tend to get sleepy. Maybe that part of the brain is called the nucleus accumbens and it's packed with receptors for tiredness triggering molecule called a denizen both caffeine and motivating stimuli stimuli can interfere with these receptors. And keep you from getting sleepy but without either of those. It's a one-way ticket to snooze. Ville studies have also found that the gentle vibrations nations of a vehicle or also. Really good lulling us to sleep. Although scientists aren't really sure why a twenty eighteen study from Australia had people drive in a virtual oh simulator that was set up on a vibration platform. It only took fifteen minutes on a low vibration for the participants to show signs of drowsiness and by thirty minutes in staying alert took significant effort when it comes to staying awake on route the relaxing Of the engine isn't doing you any favors. And of course they're all the little things things on traveled as you probably wake up earlier than normal eat less than nourishing food generally send your normal routines out of whack. You also may be dehydrated whether from recirculated air in a plane or just forgetting to drink water in general and studies suggest that can make you sluggish. So what should you do about it. Honestly take a nap up. But if you'd rather stay alert here are a few things to try. Talk to your travel buddies to keep your mind. Active drink caffeine too full your identity and receptors. Just make sure sure to follow it with lots and lots of water and try your best to eat healthy meals so you don't have a food coma or sugar crash to make things even worse.
"cypress" Discussed on Plant Of The Week
"Implant the week mark comes back to me in thought pattern and fact from last week's discussion about the ten landscaping secrets or best ideas to consider consider and number seven on. That list was the use of color now. Color in flowers beat annuals perennials or or flooring crabs and spring and so on is is all part of it however the other day with this thought somewhat fresh in mind I turned a corner in a distant place that I rarely go by and and there was gold now not gold. You can pocket but gold in three plants that were back on the corner of a property property. And as best I could tell hustling on by the the corner that they were in was a southwest corner they would get all of the morning sun afternoon afternoon sun into evening and then they were backed up by some gray deciduous tree great deciduous trees and talk about pulling the eye to to a point of interest. Gold is is a little strong but it's it's a really really was was I should say a light green chartreuse that really stood out in on a winter day Halfway raining at that point in time and I just thought in terms of color I used to be afraid of using color and that day is long gone. I'm always careful now. That big plant that I saw probably was. It's what's called a so war or Japanese false Cyprus The False Cypress resembles the Arbor Vita Group. They're very different and different different habits in growth and so on and there are many many many of them but this one or the three probably were that kind now for those of you who are interested in adding adding some bright yellow like that. Hang on and your your pencil. It's came sippers. C. H. A. M. A. E. C. You y P. A. R. I S. and then among the whole who shall I say the whole group of them that this one is is the called Piscivora Sifra S. I F. E. R. A.. Now I didn't nor am I probably capability more of per se absolutely identifying the the plant. But I don't know of anything anymore gold that I hadn't thought about it in a long time. These plants would have been in place. I'm going to judge in the ten in plus year area and they will grow to between fifteen and twenty feet tall. So it's not something you put next to the house or next to the walkway or whatever. it goes out back but it really sparkled on a day like that and January in Ohio has a lot of those days so when it comes to that. It's it's a bright yellow. I'm I have mentioned in our color group. The variegated Rhododendron which is green and cream There are several Rhododendrons in there and and all the rest of the leaves are at best a green Sometimes when Nicole days they fall right up like a big cigar but at the same time they add color art and then there are other things. I mentioned the green of the bark. And it's it's it's settled but at the same time it's very decidedly mid green on the big shrub curious. Those are all things that you can add to a winter day to glance at out of given window or whatever We well they are used in many many ways but the the whole group of came sippers grow from practically as his lowest my knee. And that's my short on up to the twenty five thirty forty fifty foot range. So that's the reason I gave you. The fancy name came a sip. RECIPRO- sopher up. And then I think this one is called for lifter Oreo so once you get done pronouncing all of that. It's it's one of those things that could really add some color to your property..
