Fill The Vault
"About two years ago, I read a book called the actors life by actress Jenna Fischer for the six of you who don't know. She's most known for playing the character Pam on the office. But her book is all about what it's really like to become an actor in Hollywood. One of the things that she mentions in the book is about the importance of filling the vault. Here's a quote from her book. She writes every project you finish has value whether it's the one woman show. You wrote the Web series with only twenty four of us. The pilot wrote with your friend. All are important and will pay off somehow. Putting things in the vault is important. I have a friend who's been writing a hilarious, and since series of children's books for the past two years. She's a struggling actress. Who said to me one day I. Don't know why I. Keep doing these books. No one's going to publish them at the very least they keep me saying I love them. And I told her one day. You're going to break out in a big way I just know it and your new fancy agent is going to ask you what ideas you have, and you will go into your vault. pull out the series of children's books and say that you have a fully developed idea for an animated series, and it will happen because that's how this stuff works. When you become a busy working actor, you won't have time to fill the vault, so fill it now. I love that image that Jenner Paints for makers who may be feeling discouraged that their work isn't being shared with the masses yet or haven't hasn't been shared at all. And I love how she points out the importance of doing the hard good work and filling the vault now so that later you'll have worked to pull from after you get super-busy, but I wanna take the liberty to extend this concept of filling the volt, even further because the truth is. We need to be a practice of filling the vault even after week. Week published land the job seal the deal or quote unquote make it if we don't have a regular practice of filling the vault, even small ways will get bored burnout. Give up or lose our creative spark, and I'm just going to adhere to filling. The volt is really for all of us whether or not, we ever realize our dream or hit that big goal or make that big deal whatever the case may be filling. The vault is part of being human. It's part of the creative process, and it is so deeply important. Taking my inspiration from Jennifer, fisher? Here are three ways to fill the volt, no matter where you are in your own vocational journey so that you keep doing your good work forever. Number One. Keep a quote journal. I'm a reader and I'm a firm believer that my very best ideas are not exactly new, but tend to stand on the shoulders of the best ideas. Someone else had I'm admitting it now there you go. You heard it here. First. I've made peace with this and I realized part of the way I fill the volt is to pay attention to and write down quotes that are meaningful to me so that I can let the thoughts and ideas from other creators sing in harmony with my own experience and hopefully one day that will become a new song. This is a lovely way of honoring the work of other writers and letting their work inspire new work in me, not as a way to copy them, but as a way to learn from them not to get too Meta, but the title of this episode fill the vault. Those aren't even my words as I've already mentioned. Those are Jenna Fischer's words, and I got them from a paragraph in her book and that Paragraph in her book inspired an entire episode of my podcast. See how that works. A second way to fill the vault create right and store every idea. This one is most close to the intention. I think Jenna had in her book when she wrote about filling the vault. Have a way to categorize. Your ideas doesn't have to be fancy has to work for you. This is for you if you are a high school student with dreams of going to film school, or if you're retired and wondering what might be next, my dad wrote his first book at Age Sixty six, and after retiring, he now co runs, Hope Raiders fulltime with me Brian, Dixon. He's using skills that he filled the vault with for decades now he's using them and hope writers, but he never knew if they would be useful. One day spoiler alert. They are useful and his life is proof. Finally a third and perhaps most overlooked way of filling the volt. Rest on purpose. There's a woman named Tricia who I've been learning a lot from lately. She sees rest as a healing tool for empowerment. She's the founder of the net ministry, which you can find on Instagram at the net ministry, and her work is to examine the liberating power of naps. Yes, like I'M GONNA. Take an APP like a toddler. While she believes rest is a form of resistance and in her words, a key component for justice. In her work, she speaks specifically to black women who are actually burdened and exhausted by the state of the world today. One Way to fill the volt is to rest on purpose. Imagine the lasting healthy change that could come from well rested people. And that is essentially where you'll find me today. Every year in July I tried to take some intentional time away. You won't see that reflected in these episodes because I've worked ahead so that they can drop on time last year. I took a month long sabbatical this year. It's only two weeks, but these two weeks are vital for the health of my soul, my family and also the work I do here. With every book I've written with every new idea I've had. That has grown into something lasting. I can point back to a specific and intentional time away from where that new idea was born or took more meaningful shape.
Black Women and Hip Hop
"Hbo Max, documentary on the record betrays how sexual abuse against Black Women in hip hop has gone largely unchecked, the New York Times and said there were other women. That they will go on the record unless I go on the record, but I'm terrified of the backlash. Due to rampant misogyny, careers and dreams have been destroyed. That's the case according to drew. Dixon and Cherry share to women who say their bright futures and music were disrupted by the actions of record executive. Russell Simmons Dixon alleges that Simmons use the promise of tape to learn her into his apartment where he allegedly raped her. Cher Cher was a young aspiring artist and member of the first. All female rap group the Mercedes Ladies One day in nineteen, eighty three. She says Simmons invited her up to his office to talk business, but instead he proceeded to assault her. Both women eventually left the industry after these alleged incidents and remained silent for decades. Drew Sherri thank you so much for joining us today. Thanks for having US drew I'm going to start with you the early days of your career in hip hop. We're really impactful. You made one of my favorite songs of all time. You're all need with Mary J. What were your hopes when you entered the hip hop industry before I even got to New York I had a vision board conjuring in my mind I wanted my life to be like that I had a picture of Russell in the center of it all the idea of working for him, making records and influencing this art form was the dream I felt like it was the opportunity of a lifetime in. In the film you said that there were plenty occasions on which Russell was exhibiting behavior that would be called I think in any employee handbook sexual harassment, exposing himself to you propositioning you. How are you able to navigate your career? While also dealing with that type of behavior, I sort of felt like it's like there's another Russell. Simmons I can't duplicate level of an opportunity, so if I could just. Manage around his bad behavior long enough to make a hit record with my name on the back. I can get out of here with like my next golden ticket for the next job. I was twenty three and twenty four. And I now realize my compass was getting moves just a little bit every single time I understand that's how it worked. I didn't think anybody cared about sexual harassment. As far as black women were concerned, because nobody cared about Anita Hill, and that was like maybe two years earlier I didn't understand I was dealing with a Predator in my mind wasn't dangerous. He was just inappropriate. You stay because you hope that perhaps you can provide enough value to the company and move ahead. It's something that you have to go along with. Because the alternative is, you'll be unemployed. Something that I noticed drought. The film is like this desire to keep what you were dealing with to yourself so that. You could make it to the next stage especially as a woman. How did that? Affect like how much leeway powerful men in the industry had to behave in a way that was inappropriate and sometimes violent fees. Men understood that they were the gatekeepers. If Russell decided I was a problem. Then I wasn't just dead in the water at jam dead in the water in the whole black music game when I tell you I love hip hop, I love hip hop. It's like a death I? mean it was a kind of suicide leaving the industry? It was like A. It was kind of suicide.

Followed by consumer discretionary seventy percent in financials, fifty nine percent that said they went up the most, because they went down the most in the first part of it, and for the year they're still down, so energy stocks are still down almost thirty percent of the year and consumer, discretionary and financials still down eleven percent for the year.

A Whole Lot of Home Cooking
"We've been sort of in quarantine now for about two months and I think as trying as these times have been for everyone I think one of the I don't don't call it a silver lining up side. Whatever is that we've been in this nation of Home Cooks and personally speaking. I can say without question. I've never cooked better food or more consistently than I have in the last eight weeks and I'm kind of astounded as someone. Who's you know? Food Industry Professional Yada. Yada like how much I've learned in how much I've gotten better as a home cook I. Is that a fair statement. Carl. What's been your take. I have never in my life. Cook dinner as many times in a row as I have been quarantine we've ordered in one time. Yeah it's interesting because you know worked at a test kitchen gather for years but there are so many days of the week by the time I get home. It's either too late to make dinner or are those certain days where you get home and you're just done and I imagine gauge to this being in the entertainment industry where just emotionally mentally physically. You're just spent by the time you walk in your door. It took it took maybe a month for people to become accustomed to this new way of working these of zoom etc etc. My wife and I in the same small space rolling zoom calls screaming over each other coming up with hand signals waving at each other. Give each other the finger trying to keep trying to tell each other to push both of us not realizing that we are in fact screaming over the zoom and and that's all day every day and it's and things didn't really slow down and now things are really kind of picking up with work. So yeah you're on zoom calls. Maybe like ten hours a day and then you gotta figure out dinner so it definitely it definitely makes you do some planning and for me and I don't want to spend too much time talking about it but obviously sourcing alike. Light Carla. I've we ordered in once during this two month period and for me the idea of sourcing. Fresh food has been a super challenge and that I spent a lot of time doing and something that I realized how much we take for. Granted are access to great food and how much thought it really takes now and and I also think about people that don't still have access to the same level of products that we have and it's actually changed my entire thought process about food about sourcing about groceries and consumption. In general I would say a couple of things on logistically. The daytime thing is interesting working from home because like when I'm at home if I have a window between two and two thirty I'm like oh I can start marrying that chicken or I can start prepping this so that when it is time to cook dinner at six o'clock. I've already got a lot of that. Legwork done but on a regular workday you. You don't have the ability to do that. You kinda starting from scratch every time you get home and then also. I've never used my freezer this much and in terms of like. I know we're all making an effort to not go out to the store all the time so I actually. This is the first time I use my freezer with all sorts of different frozen prepackaged meats as opposed to the freezer in the past. Always been that thing. I just threw stuff in and never saw again like a freezer graveyard and now it's like a treasure chest. Yeah no it's like what's in here Carlos. Because you're you're more organized than we are. We have you evolved in that sense in terms of storage and freezing and stuff ingredients. My only complaint is. I wish I had a chest freezer or like now. I get it like the to fridge. Households I wish I had the garage with the other fringe because I holds me back. A lot is just feeling like their fridge. When I stock up is so full that with the let between the leftovers the condiments the fresh stuff like gave us talking about if you're only shopping once every week or ten days like that that that space fills up so fast so we've got a cooler on the back deck and just the rotation of freezer packs into that and it's not a huge one. It's like It's just a ordinary coleman cooler but rotating the freezer packs into that and then figuring out what kind of produce will stand up in there so like citrus is out there and cabbages and things that don't need to be quite as cold as the other stuff. So it stresses me out a little bit. Because I really don't want to waste anything you know we early on we. We do. Have a Coleman Cooler where we put a lot of Greens in sort of sturdy vegetables and just kind of keep them cool but simone early on in this thing. She bought a chest freezer like medium small side medium size one and I thought she was crazy and like being like a bunker mentality nuclear war sort of person but it has been absolute game changer. And and then I went and bought a bunch of meats from Dixon's Farm San and Chelsea market and individually one pound packs ground beef and some dribs and this and that and I got a list on my phone everything in that freezer and I sort of adjusted as we go. Wow that's very organized for me. It's been a little bit like relent as well because we you know we're trying to figure out how to get stuff delivered here and try to do as little you know. Irl shopping as humanly possible. We signed up for with a farm in riverhead New York and Long Island that processes animals It's dairy and also beef and pork in inhumane. Awesome Way So I was like excited about that but basically it's it's they you kind of like order a wishlist. Every week of what you'd like to get. And then they just send you what they've got and so it's been like it's been open up the package. It's like okay. What am I doing with Pork Loin? I don't really. I don't really deal with pork loin housing here here. We go more now having abundance of Yogurt. I'm not a big yogurt guy. The other day I was like. Oh Pork Loin. I've got some yogurt. I'M GONNA make like Euros. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA. I'M GONNA like I've got some cucumbers. I never have to numbers. I'm GonNa make some Zeki. These are freestyle things. I wouldn't do Olympics. Global pandemic forgave to get cucumbers. I mean it's not a thing it's not a thing that we normally have. I don't I don't love cucumber. I don't know we don't usually put in Salads or whatever you gotTa Peel it all right. Let's talk about some cooking Carla. What is something you've cooked in these last several weeks that either? You've never done before that you were just so stoked about how well it turned out. Well there was one week early on when I really wanted chicken and I could not get ticket like it was one of earlier weeks where everyone. I don't know what it was like. Toilet Paper Lysol and chickens grain whole chickens. The American brain is like survival. What can I not live without teepee and chicken? So that's like the most American thing in the world so I wanted to chicken. Couldn't get but the place I I was ordering from had whole ducks and I was like well. I've made your dot com fee recipe. Which I swear by but I've never ever cooked a whole duct before and I personally would be intimidated. So what did what did you do? Yeah the thing. A whole doc is like it's actually terrible to Whole duck rate but I I was like birds bird a bird. Just have to deal with this but I knew that roasting a whole doc is actually very problematic the way roasting a whole. Turkey is problematic because the breast in the legs or like on a completely different Optimal like setting. So what it came. I was kind of annoyed because I was like. Oh Jesus Christ I forgot about this whole dock now I have to butcher it. Because roasting at whole is actually not a great way to cook it but then it was this really Validating sort of process of being like first of all happy that I knew how to butcher a duck so I was. I was sort of like it had been a while but I took the Brasov. I took the legs off. Then you have all this fat. So separating keeping the fat you know in one area had the breasts I seasoned up the legs to do comfy. I scored the fat on the breast and the little cross hatch because that's just really good pan roasted and then I had a car guest so in and this whole duck gave me stock roasted the bones I made stock. I had Duck brass one night. We had dot com for another night. And then I just have all of the duck fat which I put into like everything else that I made for the next three weeks and it was sort of like what gave is saying this way that you're pushed out of your comfort zone in your ordinary way of shopping where. I ended up buying something because it was what was available and good instead of what I thought I wanted to have and it was
Sabatinis stylish dominance; Nadal and Federers 2006 classic
"Amy Thank you so much for your support and to everybody that bacteria kickstarter at the end of last year which enabled us to carry on all year long and produced the tennis podcast four. You hope you're enjoying it. We certainly are catherine say. Hello Catherine David. Hello Matt. You're right. Hello yes fine. Thank you good. We have had the most wonderful weekend watching old tennis matches from Rome which we are going to really have with you today from nine hundred ninety two. The story of Gabriella Sabatini is extraordinary. Run in Rome for titles in five years and also talk about how more generally she's one of those players that tends to get forgotten. I'm afraid to say including bias. I can't think of many times that we've mentioned the name Gabriella Sabatini over the last eight years of the tennis podcast. And we're going to put that right today. She also turned fifty as well over the weekend. So feels like a good time to do that. And we're going to go back to the two thousand six men's final between Roger Federer and Rafael. The Dow a dare say many more of you will remember that one and maybe some of you watched it with us over the weekend so lots to talk about before we do that. Let's just mention the news of the week. Which is that more? Tennis TOURNAMENTS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED UP until July thirty first on the ATP circuit and the events. The wheelchair events have been announced on the men's side tournaments like a start Baastad Kitzbuehl in Newport or cancel because of the corona virus. And we await to find out what will happen with the American swing in August. But I mean it doesn't sound great so we'll have to wait and see several WTI events until mid-july cancelled as well but no great surprise. I'm afraid Catherine I should say as well following on from songs that could be used for the corona era a particular mention for EJ Stanton on instagram. Who suggests don't stand so close to me from the police. Yep Yep acceptable. Yep that's yeah. I've heard that mentioned a lot of the lowest we were going for more. I don't want to diminish EJ's contribution that we were going. Ooh For more specifically songs that reference the absence of crowd right so rather than sort of general corona virus social distancing song bags which which I feel are. Is anyone else a bit over sort of Korean social distancing song just over the whole thing generally? It's a very very difficult time for cynical people with a dry sense of humor because there's a loss of well intentioned sort of sickly happiness in sort of we're all in this together in we'll come through this and have you considered crafting. You should be crofting. Oh we're GONNA come out of. This is best move well rounded people and you know people that then you bunny the. I'm so over all of that. This folks is Katharine Whitaker. Who has just shown irs her two thousand piece Jigsaw which makes two in a row that she's not together now and she's also about her fiftieth podcast to the air with two weeks worth of dailies to come during Roland Garros Peppy Catherine. Yeah but I'm not. I'm not smugly telling people if you considered podcasting it's it'll make you a better human being during these challenging times. Stephanie my better I have. You always Dunk Jigsaw. No I mean I have on occasion in over the years done the odds Dixon L- but nights definitely I. I'm not doing this to to self improve. I'm enough to pass the time. I'm just impressed. Because not cool or anything they might even be able to hear me through the wolves but my parents started kick those and they're really not very good at them. How can you be? How can you be bad at jiggles? Unless you've got bad eyesight you've done you've done about five of them in the space have been out of the night soaking souls. We're talking two thousand pieces. My parents struggling with five five hundred faces. Maybe they need help just handed over to my kids. If I was doing a jigsaw. There's no why upbeat during it because I just lose know these inch. It's IT'S GONNA sound like one of these awful peppy. People is the IT. It's it's very mindful. It gets me off my phone hawks. Group it it's very it's you can still sort of be watching the telly obviously not physique. And have something on the tally in the background. And be paying attention to it but it gets you off your phone sort of it. Concentrates the mind. Oh God I hate myself move on. Can Multitask is what you're saying? Awesome specifically cannot multitask. So I would say it's a nonstarter. Meanwhile folks we have been putting photos on social media channels of ourselves in one thousand nine hundred ninety two where possible because Matt didn't exist nine hundred ninety two and two thousand and six respectively Matt has created quashed a picture of a tennis magazine on which he as a child prodigy is on the front cover wielding his racket. Like Richard Gasquet aged nine. Except there's no strings in the racquet That's the away so walk away. A few people were taken in by it. It's my absolute probably favorite thing. That's ever happened to me. That people actually think I was on the cover of Tennis magazine. Age Ten it was just at Wimbledon in the. Lta Tent way you could go up and have your have your photo taken in front of a green screen. And they were then imprinted onto ace tennis magazine. And yes they put up there alongside the words the not a the future Wimbledon champion going to all future Wimbledon. Men's having experienced his game. I can tell you what could have happened to a young Merrin Chile church in appearance. Yeah not sure what to say about that. Well he he opened so I'd go with that. Yeah no great. I'm in favor of all. Comparisons to professionals plays a singular. Us Open title is not all Wimbledon. Titles there is it still in underachievement relative. I don't think we're actually doing any matches from two thousand seven for tennis relived. Who knows how long ten is live? We'll be going on. We may have to come to two thousand and seven at some point but I actually went back the following year and appeared on the front cover again. Let's just put it up as a sort of extra what the people working uniform and that one.

He slowly getting to the point where he's kind of having some little expressions on his face and smiles every now and then you can tell starting to look at you a little more We also have a one year old chocolate labs or trying to get the two of them to get along which is a little tricky right now but a hopefully they'll become friends and a couple of years. Technically you have two babies at home. Pretty much Yes exactly the dog obviously has more energy than any animal. I've ever seen in my life and then the baby Kinda sleeps all day. So they're they're kind of on opposite schedules which is funny but you know definitely adds a little twist things when you've got the one year old puppy to deal with as well of the positives that. I'm sure that you can see. Is that by having puppy? That is a chocolate lab and super energetic. Probably have a lot of time to go and exercise with him. Exactly we're going You know like a lot of the neighborhood where we live. I mean it when we we've gone on to three or four walks day and you see a bunch of kids their bikes out on skateboards and everyone kind of is leaving the house at some point or other during the day trying to get some exercise of course keeping away from each other. But it's a very active neighborhood right now. We've seen a lot of players finding creative ways to stay fit and even trying to maybe have Iraq in their hands and even hitting on little home tennis courts. Did you have a court? You can hit on nearby. That's safe so to speak or are you keeping the tennis spirit alive. Yes no I mean in Los Angeles. We're right now. There's a handful of people that have private tennis courts around. I didn't hit this last week. I'm not hitting this week but to pay on how long this kind of warranty lasts. I am going to have to find a court at some point and get some reps in so There's a couple of people I know that. Have accorded their house. I can open with a coach. Keep it to two or three people and and probably kind of get some reps in some tiny houses on my and things like that and then hopefully when things are are lifted and we have a little more freedom to walk around You know I can get back some more. A kind of Richmond in practice of some of the other pros. Do you WANNA get back. Start playing again. But you don't really have a reason to just yet so speaking of recording this a little bit ahead of the official news but it looks like Wimbledon. It's going to be cancelled. And you are someone that has absolutely thrived at the All England Club. You've made the semi-finals their quarterfinals. Twice a move like that. Are you shocked by having the Grassi's in now go yeah? I'm I'm really bombed? I saw it coming. I think everyone saw him coming You know we've got to get this virus under control but not only just because it's Wimbledon but every time it gets cancelled. It's it's such a huge bummer and You know like you said it's hard to start practicing because we don't know the start date of when we're gonNA play so it's not a let me answer a lot of players are now. You're not overly motivated to get in the gym and get on the Court. Because hey is are we gonNA play again in three months and six months in twelve months? So it's tough to time it so just got to kind of do your best to stay active and and hit when you can and and then once the You know once we know what's going on and we know. Hey we're GONNA start playing tennis October. I really for a player like me and I think most buyers if you have four to six weeks to prepare and practicing tim you can be back to your your high end playing level relatively soon exactly. I think that's that's a pretty good way to look at it but again I mean I'm still pretty stuck on this thing. You made the quarterfinals there last year. And now you know that the rankings are at this point frozen. Is it a massive relief thinking that you don't have to defend that no? I mean I'd rather I look. I'd rather I'd rather go play lose first round lose all the points and just be able to play Wimbledon to to miss. It is is worse than than worrying about defending points. I mean I know some people might be worried about that but for me. I'm not worried about defending points. I'd rather go out and lose. First Round of the next fifteen tournaments. I play but at least have the chance to play so I guess we're not exactly sure on the tour what we're doing the ranking jet as of now. They're frozen wants to get going again. We'RE GONNA determine how they're going to you know how points drop off how they're going to or how they're gonna go about doing the ranking system. So like I said I. I'm not worried about the points coming off and I would rather just play the council meetings. I mean it's it's hard to have everybody's opinions and different people shouting at different things at different ways on how to keep the points how to defend the points how to restructure the ranking system. Pretty much by the time we come back. Were you on the end of wanting to keep the freeze or were you against the freeze? Or what are your thoughts on the whole process on figuring out the ranking system? Yeah I'm for the freeze in. I'm on I'm on the player council assignment although the phone calls and things and there's so many different options in scenarios and we're trying to narrow down to the best one and the only thing that I can really say for sure is whatever solution we come to. It's not gonNa work for everyone. There's GonNa be people that benefit from it and people that don't benefit from it. So that's what makes this difficult as well as there's not going to be a perfect solution and that that's what tennis all sports all things alive. There's not going to be a perfect solution that fits everyone so everyone has to be somewhat flexible with whatever the decision is that the council sort the tour decides when it comes to the

New Rams logo and colors finally unveiled for all to see
"Yesterday we saw. What was it two weeks ago a month ago. Something like that. A leaked tap that we thought might be. The Rams New logo thankfully what we saw is not the rams new logo. They did release their new logo. Yesterday I think most people have probably seen it but what it is is it's a white. La and coming out of the top of the A. is a much more modernized. Stylized Ram horned the kind of wraps through the middle of the A A and it it. It's Vodka Tive of what we've seen in the past with the rams horns but it is definitely a new look. We've seen a much more stylized RAM head with the yellow the gold horns wrapped around and much more stylized skull. The rapid stuff. What did you guys make the Rams New Logo? What a show. Okay that says a lot to get all that actually. I don't like it me personally. But that's just me. I don't have to weird I don't have to be associated with it at that level I talked to the original logo. The one that they came back to La with the one that they left with I'm just not when it comes to certain iconic franchises. I try to keep everything the same you know in in it just. I don't know it looks like it will be overly critical. It just doesn't doesn't hold against the old one let's put it that way Or you know you and I travel. We talk when something was leaked. And I told you in reminded me of that World Team Tennis Organization as an Orange County. Call the breakers moving on the. Yeah there for second. I'm GonNa you know it's funny so I thought I'm going to be honest. I Wanna I sound like Oh okay the more I look at it. The more uncomfortable with it and the more it has grown on me. I didn't love it at first. I like the RAM head. I liked to. It's the the ran had itself. I think is very very cool. The RAM head. I think is something that you're GonNa see on a lot of hats and t shirts and things like that. I think that looks pretty slick. What more does not be on the side of the helmet though? That's why I think I need to see the uniform to see because I don't need it saying L. A. With the Ra- I don't need no much going on RAM head and I don't eat L. A. Much. I think the helmet should be the horns. We'll see the uniforms are going to come later. But I do think when we see the uniforms. That'll kind of all bring together. I don't like the La with the Hornets because quite honestly the horn the way that stylized it looks a little bit like the chargers lightning bolt which I don't think you want it to look like but generally speaking I think when it all comes together if that RAM head is prominent. If that's kind of thing that we go with more and more often and as long as the the helmet stays relatively the same. I think he's going to work out pretty well. Why do you need to change though you know you? Moving into a new stadium to Dallas. Cowboys didn't change. They moved into a new stadium right. I mean when you when you look at some of the. I can't conic franchises. That are out there. Yeah they altered their logos but the New England patriots was not an iconic franchises prior to Tom Brady and Bill Belichick surival. They've gone to the super bowl super bowls. They lost both of them. They had the Patriots Guy with the what was it. Three point stance guy. Was it three point. Three point stance guy but it's the New England patriots where the Green Bay packers on the other hand. That's been the same got the G. That thing has been like that as long as I remember. Well there are some certainly have stayed the same for ever and in most of the other ones though if we're being honest change fairly frequently but they do change and they get up dated and they get modernized and I think this is the way that the rams are doing it and if you are moving into a new stadium it does feel like the right time to do it. I love the colors that they picked. I know that they're described it. You know you look at it right now. And it's a soul and rams royal or the two colors that they're using and but the colors are right liked it. That gold has gone. I like the blue and the yellow. I think the colors are good will see with uniforms. Look like but the more I look at the more it is grown on me is in particular the rams at the colors. I like the rams old colors. 'cause I can envision Air Dixon running in that in in you know Vince for gown will drop them back and planning at Coliseum or playing in Anaheim stadium so the colors. I like that. They really didn't change them. I mean that's basically the throwbacks. If you want to say that are so. We'll talk to the Fed. I'm just curious about the fit. I'm just curious about the actual fit of the clothes like to me if the fit of the clothes. Nice and the fabric and materials that is made with. It's nice that will overcome any disappointed. You may have with the logo. Our where some gear? If it looks right. It's it's fitness right but if it doesn't fit right and I don't like the logo then. I got nowhere to
Cooking for the Family During Self-Isolation
"Carla Music First of all how are you doing? I'm doing okay. I am thankful for a lot of things right now. One of them being that. There's actually space at home for us to not be on top of each other. So I'm very grateful for that because we're GONNA be together for a while. Yeah I mean we've had ESI had marlins moaning I have spent a really nice actually four or five days family time been very chill. Marlins been great and I appreciate it. A Lot I do wonder come like day thirty. We're all gonna be doing but so far I feel like everyone has been stepping up to the challenge. I think I've been trying to be understanding of of what's in front of US totally on the food front. We recorded a few weeks ago about how to sort of prepare for this and at the time it was almost theoretical abstract like. Oh Yeah Okay we're GONNA go buy a bunch of groceries and it almost seemed by okay shore and now that we're fully in it. I'm just curious to understand how you're doing. And like what has come to fruition. What lessons have you learned? What's working what's not working yeah. It's almost quaint looking back on that conversation now. I think we were thinking about it. Like Blizzard was coming. You know we were going to be home for a few days So one of the resets for me has been really thinking about how to incorporate both kind of a pantry that is going to help me build meals and keeping enough fresh food and freezer in stock for variety. And so that I don't feel like every meal has to be a project you know. That's a good point because some meals. You want to be a project because you want something to do. Maybe you want to get the family involved. And there's other times where I had bought a bunch of frozen little Ravioli. Sorta things at the Italian market and one night right. Let's just watch a movie and not to a big me. All of us for the freezer oil them up in Boston with some butter and Parmesan nutbag and that was delicious but was super simple in not time consuming. Yeah I think that's really important because when we have this idea that we're gonNA be stuck inside because of like a weather event or You know things that may be as humans in this world. We can relate to being stuck at home for a few days in not context. It's really fun to do a big project and cook all day but now that what we're really thinking about is no. This is normal. Life in normal life is at home. And maybe your kids are doing online classroom and you have to make lunch like you can't be kind of elbows deep in like a big project as best bully as a LASAGNA. When you know someone needs a peanut butter and Jelly Sandwich. So I'm just trying to think about that balance having some things that are hands off and take maybe a few hours to Cook Lake stock or a braise but really thinking about that as multiple meals down the line And then also balancing that with like you know I. I really heated some. I had some conference chicken okay. So like that's a personnel guy. No problem that I had but I had confused chicken in my fridge that I had made like several weeks ago and last night I decided you know. Use a couple can black beans Heated those up. I had a so Frito I had done a big batch so Frito so I have like little jars of so frito really easy way to get a lot of fast flavor. Made the Black Beans Chris. Step chicken thighs heated up. Some FAJITAS put out sour cream and we kind of had like a little Taco night. You remind me of a meal. Sonic who believes that nothing ever really goes bad in the frigerator I had to. I got to Jars Schmaltz out of the deal too. So you know what works we. We were in Zoom meeting about twenty of US earlier today Talking about story ideas and just that notion of talking about lunch that when we're all stuck at home we still need to sort of build some sort of schedule for ourselves and like actually take time to sit down at a table and eat lunch and that otherwise your day into sort of tumble for one thing to the next five thirty. And you're like wow. I'm still in my sweatpants. And I haven't had an actual meal or a moment to communicate with someone in a non-professional level or something I think that's really important. I thought was a great tip. Last time we spoke was a like. Yeah we want some fresh ingredients in our diet. It's not just pantry but then to be mindful about the shelf life of those items and so I we bought much stuff at a farmers market in this beautiful celery but after a few days celery Kinda rubbery you know it's Kinda limp and other well. Meanwhile denied these two big heads of cabbage. Stomach all right. The cabbage is fine. That's a cool place. That'll probably be fine a month from now but that salary I need to make tonight Ross is GonNa go bad so I ended up making that Tiger Salad. We HAVE ON DOT COM sites up to celery salons cucumbers a rice wine assessment addressing and that was delicious and a made it also with that the next subject again. We'll be touched on a few weeks ago but I did end up going to Dixon's Farm San meets. Which if you have a nice butcher shop near you. This is a great time to buy a bunch of cuts of meat. That if they can back you seal them and you can just immediately freeze up. Yeah Antibiotic a Little Flat Iron Steak. Which is kind of a thin cut and I just didn't even defrost it all the way. So it's actually you can slice it thin easier. That way. It made Chris Morocco's Basic Bogie Korean style Bogie Dot Com and that was delicious and easy and fast and it just felt like a sensible balance like right one thing from the freezer one fresh ingredient before it goes bad But you know it's again. It's sort of ingredient management. We're all GONNA have to deal with in the coming months. I think I love that Bogie Recipe. By the way I saw your picture. It looked so good. I think that one thing. I'm trying to reassure people as often as possible. There's a lot of food. In the grocery stores we got a lot of we kinda got bombarded at the beginning with this like Armageddon. Everybody was posting pictures of all the empty shelves and Empty Freezer case. And I think it really freaked a lot of people out and I think that if you're going to like a big box store that maybe had a huge volume of people very quickly that that was true there that that inventory was depleted fast. But I really do want everybody to remember that. There's a lot of food in the United States. And there's a lot of distribution that is one hundred percent intact and not to feel like you need to have in the house right now. A month's worth of three meals a day for the next thirty days I think keeping a balance of pantry staff fresh food freeze. You know free some meat free sausages whatever it is in Kinda keep those zones replenished but no one can fit enough food for thirty days in their fridge at once anyway and and and you shouldn't feel like you have to show taking it like one week ten days at a time but you know I am. I know being mindful about being in crowds and stuff like that. Grocery stores are open. Be Safe about it when you go in and you can buy food. Yeah thankfully I think we're we're in good shape right now Spatial management is also interesting. I am the roundabout story but I'm old friends from way. Back in the day with Andrew Carmelina who is now a race. That's Shafie done a bunch of restaurants in New York and Detroit And yesterday they had to shut down all the restaurants and at least temporarily lay off. Four hundred people Something that's the entire restaurant. Industry has been crippled right now. It's really unclear how that's all going to play out and who's going to have to make a living. Cetera ET CETERA And yet he was a literally clearing out their kitchens and a lot of food they were able to give away. He had like twenty loaves of frozen bread. He's like do you want some bread and one thing. I do think that a tip which I know you guys do in the kitchen which is nice. If you have a loaf of bread you can slice it up. Put it in a ziplock bag and then freeze that time you can take out one slice toasted instead of having to defrost entire low for whatever and eat it. All at once which I think is great advice the challenge. I'm having we have a small. Caesar saw Mike will can I? What can I fit in the Freezer M. I? Managing my freezer space properly or do I have a bunch of random stuff in there that I don't really need which your freezer thoughts I use my freezer really to freeze components for meals instead of like complete meals so for example everybody is talking about that all the frozen pizzas were. Gone Gel. Which is hilarious. Again I get it but if I went out and bought six frozen pizzas entire. Freezer would be full. You know is not there. They're not very efficient. Use of space But things like cooking grains freezing them in Ziplock bags. You confed a lot of that into the into the freezer timeout. You mentioned this last time. You're saying like if you have like Farro or something you'll boil it cook it and then you cool it yeah trey and then put in Ziplock Bag. Yeah and then when you unfreeze it so you can just unfreeze it. You could make a stir fry from it at that point. You could make a grand salad. Once it comes back to room temperature warmed back up and dress it with a little olive oil. You could add it to a brosse soup You could make a you know. Kind of ad hoc risotto out of it. You know Could you should. You should write a cookbook. I've thought about it. You could also reheat it. I have been This is a very like nostalgic delicious thing to me but grains can go sweet too so you could warm up some Grains that were cooked just with a little bit of salt water and even if they had a little bit of olive oil. Warm those up like you would Oatmeal a little bit of milk. Some cinnamon hung little drizzle of Maple resting would be like a delicious breakfast or honestly like if you need a little comfort food for

"Free autograph copy of Jeff Dixon's book, winning the retirement game this retirement income map is ideally, suited for anyone who's recently retired within five years of retiring, or currently retired and has saved at least one hundred thousand dollars. This isn't some generic plan that we're just going to pull out of a drawer and drop in the mail. This is an analysis that will custom build with your name on it for your specific situation. Pick up the phone right now. One eight five five five hundred seven three eight four. So Jeff as we talk today about some knowledge, gaps that we've seen and found as we met with people. So what's another one? The next run, we see all the time, surrounds, the topic of social security, social security is a pillar of retirement, that most retirees will rely on for at least a portion of their retirement income. However, there are many rumors of the program is insolvent in won't be there for us down the road is this, the case will we be able to rely on our hard earned social security checks every month as supplemental income others either coming up on sixty two or have passed that age and don't know how and when to claim others have an idea of how they envision themselves claiming but don't really have an idea of how their social security will work within an overall retirement plan. Whether you stand on this spectrum not. We want to begin to put to bed some of these questions and misconceptions for all of our clients. Jeff, I saw a stat today, that show the social security trust funds will be depleted within the next fifteen years. So it started the beginning with the question about the program itself, and how it's funded and it solvency the answer's complicated. But I'll try to be concise social security is made up of two major programs. One social security old age survivors and to social security disability insurance, we've paying into both our entire lives with the cut the federal government takes out of our checks, every pay period when we were tire, we plan to begin drawing from the old age survivors benefit now the payments are generated from two. Sources one is taxable revenue and two is interest from the trust funds balance, it self. So it's not like a 4._0._1._K where your balances your own, and you have a stash of money somewhere with your name on it, rather. It's like a pension where your benefits are paid out from the program itself and redistribute as benefits are claimed now because baby boomers are retiring in droves, and because people are living longer and longer the program has become increasingly expensive to maintain. Fewer tax payers supporting each beneficiary. That's the taxable revenue side of things then on the interest from the trust funds balance, the easiest way to think about that is like money in a savings account pays interest supplement the income from taxes, but twenty twenty one the interest from the trust fund and income from taxes will not be enough to sustain the program. So the going to have to start drawing down the principal and the trust fund. Yes. Jason one lucky. Twenty nineteen social security. Trustees report that anyone can access online. It says very clearly in black and white that the trust funds for both the old age survivors in disability benefits will be depleted by twenty thirty five at that point, again, this can be found in black and white ink. The income from the tax payers, will only be able to sustain about seventy five cents of every dollar of promised benefits. I think the logical questions that need to be ask our, we'll social security cut my benefits or will. I receive the full benefit amount. That is estimated for me. Or can I rely on so security at all for long term retirement income? These are a few of the questions that we are asking a daily basis at northwest financial and tax solutions. It looks like we have to take a break. We'll be.

"Welcome back to the Jeff Dixon show. Jeff before the break. You started talking about pensions? It's a fact in recent years pensions have become more rare unless you work for the state or federal government. There are still a lot of hers pensions out there some of our clients who work in Oregon as well as a few corporate pensions. What would you recommend someone do if they're facing a pension decision? Frankly, purrs pensions are pretty good. But just because you have a purse pension doesn't mean you shouldn't talk to an adviser who specializes in retirement income because you still want the pension to work within your overall plan. Each one of these questions is a very important piece of your retirement puzzle. If you don't have a purse pension, you want to see if you could beat the monthly benefit by using an alternative investment strategy. It never hurts to poke around. And frankly, I based my decision on math, and what you value the best plan. Is to give us a call. And let us walk you through all your options. Okay.

"Your state forester. Welcome back to the Jeff Dixon show. You're just join us. Where have you been talking today about how nobody should pull the trigger on Tirmizi without a plan? Jeff as you mentioned before there's two elements that can throw a wrench into an otherwise well thought out retirement strategy taxes, which we've talked about before the break and fees. No doubt about a David the fees. You pay is an incredibly important subject. According to nerdwallet financial fees can cost Americans more than a million dollars over their lifetime. The same article says as many as forty percent of people don't even know what they're paying in fees. The scary thing is for thirty years. The industry did not even have to tell investors what they were charging. Luckily, for investors that laws changed. And now oftentimes you get a thick thirty five to fifty page disclosure document that maybe you can understand if you're a lawyer or you have a degree in finance how. Horrible. Is that as a consumer you walk into the grocery store a car lot or even restaurant, you wouldn't buy anything. If you didn't know what the cost was. I why because we looked for value. We continually ask ourselves am I getting value for the money? I'm paying in the financial industry. The prices are often hidden or confusing usually people look at their statements and say that I make money or lose money, and they don't factor how much they would have made if the expenses were lower. So here's some advice on how you can figure. This stuff out. Every mutual fund has a perspective. You know, the perspectives that text heavy booklet that most people don't even look at and throw in the trash or recycle bin in a mutual fund prospectus under the transaction and fund expenses. You'll find details about the mutual funds costs. Most people have a tendency to think they're only paying the expense ratio or the management fee. But in reality, you're. Often being charged a number of different types of fees in mutual funds. You can find management fees, which can be as high as three percent also look out for transaction fees. One example of this is the sales load or sales charge. Not too long ago. Mutual fund companies routinely charged you eight and a half percent just to let you in the door. Thank goodness. These numbers have changed. But hefty loads can still hit you. If you're not being careful. Most commonly for mutual fund is going to charge. You a front end or back in load? This number is usually around five percent more often than not this is paid as a commission to the broker who shines you up. Now, you've probably heard of no load funds, which means you don't have to pay upfront sales charge or at the end. But make no mistake about it. No, low doesn't mean no fees. They're going to charge you fees. Elsewhere. It doesn't mean the mutual fund is free. Nobody works for free. Another fi you might find as a sales charge to reimburse distributions what it will cost. You reinvest the annual profits the fund distributes to you or an exchange fee. What it will cost you to move money from one fund to another in the same family of funds. Otherwise known as the fun to fund expense, not all funds charges fees, but be careful because some do also consider maintenance fees, which is the fee your charge. So the mutual fund company can pay their sales support staff in send you all those paper statements. Another one that's often overlooked is the twelve b one fee, which could otherwise be called the marketing fee. It's the fee you pay. So the company can go out and market this fun to other people just like, you, can you believe you're paying for all this stuff? The trickiest thing with fees in the financial industry is that there are almost always taking from the balance of your account. So rather than you having to swipe your credit card to pay these fees. And investment company or the advisers charging you it's taking out automatically painless on the surface. But by doing this, you're reducing the amount of money. That's making money. Is it any wonder why so many people don't know what their pain and north northwest financial intact solutions? We see these problems every day, and we see with the industry has done over the years. And we think there's a better way transparency and education is the solution. So when someone first comes in to meet with us in order to be able to weigh out their options, they I have to actually understand what the currently have we start by gathering information in analyze their portfolio, look at the fees the risk and so forth. We break down these things. So that they can see exactly what they have in. Exactly what they're paying a lot of people tell us. This is the first time they've ever had a clear understanding of their current investments. Then in the light of their goals. We next. Wanna point out whether or not their current portfolio is actually working towards accomplishing these goals? That's what we like to call option. A if not we want to talk about options that we think make more sense for them. Then we lay out some additional options that may improve their position or increase their income situation. Then in the same way, we educated them about their current portfolio their investments their risks and their fees. We educate them about the options that we've laid out for them at that point the decision what to do should be very easy. Finally, having clarity is a big relief for people when they're making decisions that will affect them for the rest of their lives.

Very true David we, see this all the time we've discussed these principles quite. Often on the show we've. Even touched on some of them just last week number one you have to remember that you're playing the long game to complete, the analogy retirement is not a quick trip Across town it's an epic cross country road trip a retirement income plan should be. Based on planning to live rather than planning to die along life will be expensive to support so that should. Be the focus fight the impatience that would, lead. You to choose short term gain while creating greater long-term costs remember. Planning to live the life expectancy is quite risky studies show that about half of the population will live longer than life expectancy so. Be optimistic in your planning if you don't plan for living beyond, your life expectancy that could, lead to permanently reduce standard. Of living if you live too long you may end up having to either die. Or go back, to, work at age ninety because all. Of your money's gone neither one of those is.
