Introduction to Cob: The Ancient, Natural, Tiny House Building Method with Dave Olsen
"Am here with dave olsen olsen completed. A cobb workshop led by younto evans in nineteen ninety-six and has had mud and sour dough on his hands ever since he began hosting natural building workshops in two thousand seven began instructing the revolutionary fast cobb mixing and building methods in two thousand nine and turned fifty in twenty thirteen based on off the grid. Sketti island he also hosts an apprenticeship. That goes well beyond natural building. Helping people develop responsible and environmentally sustainable lifestyles with enjoyment and ease. Dave has been very fortunate to have worked with many of the leading. Cobb builders of our time and to have a dynamic cobb and bicycle loving daughter and dogs dave olesen. Welcome to the show. Thanks so much for having me either. Yeah it's great great to have you here. I feel like we've been following each other for years and years And we've we've traded some email so it's great. I'm actually getting to see your face for the first time here on the zoom. Yeah thank. i'm so glad to finally connect directly likewise like why so we're going to have to start with with the real basics. What is cop well. Cobb is a mixture of sand clay and straw that you mix together with water. So it's a it's a very simple Creation some people might say that. It's you have to have a specific ratio of each of those ingredients. I don't the the one ingredient. That's unbelievably flexible. As the cly or should you can have as little as five to ten percent. I don't know exactly how little you can go. And all the way up to one hundred percent though. The smallest amount is the amount that is needed to make the sand stick together. And the and the straw okay. So and when you say percentage you're referring to the percentage of the clay in soil the material that you're using to actually build the walls. The percentage of that material so anywhere between five to ten to one hundred percent lay in. I say one hundred percent. I've never built with one hundred percent. Clay only because A wonderful man who came to one of my workshops told me about it and showed me books and in korea. They've been building klay houses for hundreds of years. And so maybe even thousands of years so it obviously worked the but cobb specifically is designed to be The material is meant to have Sanding in it so so you know if you don't have very much sand that's okay. You have a lot of clay. that's okay but if you have a lot of sand and not so much clay it has to stick together of course otherwise. You're not going to have a building that stands up so you know very Nonspecific answer of because at least certainly in the workshops but in my own personal experience we just experiment with what we have to make it as easy as possible. Because that's really. The goal of this is the not only make something. That's unbelievably resilience. Long-lasting nontoxic unbelievably hugely outperforming. Any other building. That i've ever known but just to make it really quick easy and simple as possible. So i guess my follow up question. We've got the kind of literal definition of. What is cobb run. I guess what is ours. Cobb used in homebuilding it. What do you what do you do with the cobb. yeah Literally like you can see you re up there that those are called walls so in the building that i'm sitting in i live in The walls and the floor omega of certainly don't recommend building a roof out of conned Simply because cobb will absorb water and when it does absorb it will loosen or lesson it strength and so Building a dome out of cobb is would be a foolish thing to do in the climate. I loop in live in and i don't know of any climates. Actually were be suitable. So i wouldn't try that. So certainly some non cobb materials are needed for any building that you do build but the vast majority of the material for this Building this house is cobb because the walls are afoot to eighteen inches thick and Run from florida ceiling and the floor is completely off. The second floor is all. Would i considered putting a cobb floor on top of a wooden some floor but the same principle even though it's inside very likely to stay perfectly dry but if it doesn't or if there's a lot of vibration i just haven't tested a second floor cobb floor so you know out of my realm of experience but But yet no to lessen the cost of any building if you build it cobb. It's guaranteed to lower the cost. Because literally cobb is thirteen so i love the pond and i invite you to make as many cobb puns as you wish. This interview are there any climates. I was gonna ask what pilots do clock. What climates does cobb work in but it sounds like almost i should ask the opposite like are there any clients that cobb doesn't work in. I would be surprised. If there was a climate that doesn't work in Really hot climates. It's amazing in terms of keeping the building. Cool because it literally. It's just a totally different kind of building than what most civilized people are used to right. We're used to often wooden or metal buildings that kinda shredded trap. The air at least for heating and even for cooling i imagine condos and do that conferees It's constantly breathing. It doesn't it's not drafting. You feel it breathing. The air can get through the walls and Some very very slow transfer so you never get sick building syndrome in a call building which is really nice and The way that it performs as it. It's like a thermal battery so when there's heat in the air around it it will absorb that heat and Old it basically until the era rounded is cooler than the cobb and which case than it releases eat so it really moderates the temperature especially of the inside of the building that of any building. That's made out of cobb. So and that's what. I'm just enjoying in our climate here. We have a climate where in the extreme parts of the summer. It's quite warm. It can get up to thirty degrees celsius and probably over one hundred degrees fahrenheit and it's never uncomfortably hot inside our home ever doesn't matter how hot it gets outside in the winter. We we don't have a deep freeze At all so not makes building foundations here easier but It still gets to be about raising and between zero and ten degrees celsius all winter. And so and it's very humid so it's still quite cool in terms of human living and so we have a rocket. Mass heater that keeps our floor are cog floor which then emanates that keet throughout the home and so our feeder was warm or bodies are warm and the where cobb comes in is overnight when the fires coach the cov will Emanate warmth back into the building so even though it can be down to zero overnight In the morning it's bill sixteen degrees inside the house even though it was only maybe twenty twenty two degrees when the fire went up
Small Greenhouses: The How, What, and Why
"Wanna pick up an idea that somebody sent us in an e mail. Few months ago where they asked us to comment about some small ikya greenhouses now for people who don't know key is a big furniture store right. Coup doesn't kia. Well some people may not know but evelyn e. you know about these greenhouses. What what exactly are people asking about. What are they talking about here. It especially if you live in a small home or a small apartment and you don't have a lot of window space or your apartment very dry. These miniature greenhouses can be very appealing because it gives you some dedicated growing space. And it's a way to increase the humidity. Which for some house. Plants is really important. It cracks me up when i see these on pinterest planted with charming little succulents. Because that's the last plant that really needs the increased humidity of greenhouses fact. You're you're probably going to be doing them a disservice unless you leave that. Many greenhouse open all the time. But but i can't actually makes one called soccer and i'm sure that if i spoke swedish would pronounce that better which is very cute and actually functions and the reason that it functions is because the roof is hinged so you can open it up and have full complete to the inside of the little greenhouse and it's small it's like about eighteen inches wide and fourteen inches tall but you could still fit some really pretty smaller plants that need high humidity in a little greenhouse like that. But there it's a maiden hair furner erects or an apiece or something that needs increased shop but don't waste it on a bunch of succulents. That's not really what you need to do for them. And it's probably not large enough to grow any amount of food in either right now. It really isn't. And i get so frustrated when i see these things. Online that are not realistic. That set people up to fail. Because you have a bad experience with something like that and it's gonna turn you off from growing plants completely. If you wanted to start a few seeds in one of these little greenhouses you could certainly do that. But it's not enough. You're not going to be able to grow more than maybe like a basil plant or a rosemary. Plant something in there. It's just they're just not big enough on but the thing to watch out for especially is read the descriptions if you're looking online a lot of these things that are just charming are not functional. There are some beautiful like brass and glass greenhouses up there little mini ones. That would fit on a tabletop and they sit on a tray and the trae is a half an inch deep and to access the planting. You have to lift off the whole glass top. So you've only got a half an inch of soil in there to plant with. That's not gonna work for you the ikya one. Actually you can plant in. And even though it's made out of you know glass it's plastic. It does function. so you could. You could use this. For for instance a almost a terrarium. You could create a little jungle environment in there. Yeah you could and if you if in the ones that let let you actually plant directly in them if you are going to buy one of those beautiful ones that doesn't actually have a solid bottom to it. That's the kind of thing that you're going to have to use like a close. You might just put a couple of pots in there and then put the glass top down on top of the whole thing. But you can't actually plant in soil in that kind of a little mini greenhouse. It's it's almost a display item rather than a functional growing strider. And you need to. It will increase the humidity for those plants. But they need to be individually potted. And i think it's important for people to manage their expectations now I was looking around when when we decided to talk about this. I was looking around. Because i noticed that some people mentioned that you can use these inside or outside and and i'm sure you can put it outside. But why would you want to limit yourself to such tiny thing. If you're doing it outside you know if you want some outside protection so that you can grow more plants on the shoulder seasons early in the spring and and even into the winter there are larger structures. That are much better for this. And i was looking at the gardner supply company which is a company that i'm very fond of up in vermont. An employee owned company. They're wonderful and they have a several structures that fit over standard size raised beds that create this kind of greenhouse effect over a raised bed. The sides come up so that you can get in there and tend your plants you know. And you've got that protection that carries you into the winter or early in the spring and very reasonably priced. Yes and those are a much better. Bet if you're talking about outdoor growing for many reasons because they're they're lightweight they're plastic. You can fold them up in store them easily when the growing season is completely over and they give you much more space than a tiny little kia. Terrarium is going to give you. But if you are interested in doing this indoors and you want a little more space than the ikea soccer will give you my swedish accent soccer so you could just take and this is what i used to do. I would just. I would buy big old aquariums flea markets and garage sales and this was something it may not be quite as cute and charming as something that was intended to be greenhouses concerned. But it solid. It's all glass. So you've got a really strong thing there that you can plant directly in and it's going to give you more growing space so if you're somebody who's just been dying to grow a maiden hair fern or something that requires higher humidity than you can give it in your apartment. Start looking for those old fish tanks because those will really serve your purpose probably better than anything you can buy new
Try the "Root Pruning" Method of Transplanting Trees
"Fall is a great time for transplant. And you want to talk a little bit about a process called root pruning yes mark in an ideal way to make a long story short one of my neighbors southern columbus that if a hillbilly in to discussion he said oh yes i can move dogwood anytime i want to. I said well good luck with that. He said well you you watch knowledge i do it. He went out in the fall right about now and went out in terms of a dog. Would he checked. He checked also the depth of the roots. He found out they routes were not very deep so he went out about two and a half feet all the way around the tree and literally plunged to sharp speed in the ground and cut the roots period. He would just go straight down the shovel out And on one tree he did he. He puts shovel in every other winds shovel. In the one tree smaller trees he'd be put the speed and the ground. All the way around did not even begin to lift trant plant at all. You just simply cut the roots at a time. Where the so still warm visa moot re-growth when he moved them in the spring. They didn't even know that. Then move because the roots have started to regenerate It's his what he calls. He'll ways proved again. Just a kid through college doesn't make everything order and then nurseries for a long time have used a tool that they can run down through the rows of young plants. That is Round blade that goes into the ground about eighteen inches down and sides andro right down the role of planet and literally root pruning those plants in mass. So sometimes the hands sometimes by tractor. But it's an ideal thing to do right about now soils enough moisture to the amenable to working and insulin grow and everybody can be happy that way and so. Is this something that you would. You would cut the roots now for a spring transplanting or rick. I'm mark i did. Maybe i didn't explain that. Yes it's cutting them now. He will leave it alone period until spring. Go back out. Because he's he's used some what the tongue oppressors. That showed the outline that he had chosen. He had a white ribbon in the tree that kind of designated as his and he was then dig it and move it in the springs long about bound early march whatever. The water was enough out of the soil. You could work with it and it was Really worked he was two for two in In what he wants to do. Plus proven to me the college kid the another way so yes thanks for asking because you do the route twenty now you actually lift and move the plant in the spring.
Can I Prune the Top Out of My Indoor Hibiscus Which Is Getting Too Tall?
"He has a question about high biscuits. He says mine has been inside for two years but now it's too tall for the living room. Can i cut some off the top. Well mark the answer is definitely yes now I'm going to make a it was mark. Basically what just happened to my trees down. His best is obviously a tropical. And and it's apparently doing quite well and yes he can print now as crewing goes It will depend on the looks and condition to the plan. But i would remove any cross branches and things are right up against the trunk or staff i would then think going out even on each branch tip to about nobel no more than one third of the way from the tip back toward the trump and he could trim every branch tip on that plant He can because of obvious need he can take well. I have to guess at its height. But i'm gonna say he can take between twelve and eighteen inches the top so that it's more room size and then He would want to taper the plant. So it's just not at that point. He'd want to trim off more than one third of the tips of the branches as we get closer to that top so that it it will be If we will Think in terms of a bullet about very very strong copper jacket. Bullet is very very precise and thin and tall. My his plan is gonna because he's so he's going to be using something like the old musket forty five caliber ball where it'll be more rounded in there in terms of time I know of a few plants where this has been done. Oh my over the years. I don't know how any got to be but there there is proving that can be done it and be done now or if his plant does tend to defoliate In the middle of the winter at that point would be good time to do this the trimming back and so on so yes it can be bad I would try to be as cautious as possible. Try to as we really recommend on all plants outdoors oriented doors. Try not to remove more than twenty five or maximum thirty percent of the plant at one time so a good percentage of being in that top where he's got a short and down then the tip trimming and sending and so on By all means go for
Perennial Plants and Perennial Gardens in Fall
"And I know that not for reasons that you wanted to. But for other reasons at your house, you are redoing your. Some your perennial plantings this fall. Are You Yes, we are under construction for reasons not of my. Choosing. Seal in the past couple of days, I have turned a corner on this and I am now looking at it as an opportunity to redesign the garden at the front of my house. So right now, it looks pretty much like a war zone. There's everything has come up the trees, shrubs perennials, and I'm kind of getting excited about pow I'm going to replant so. That's my silverline I'm glad you mentioned that because this is a good time of year to Redo Perennial Garden. What we want to talk about in our main segment is not only redoing a perennial garden but also kind of standard fall perennial maintenance what you should be doing various methods because as always in the garden, there's never only one right way Yeah but. I often think that. One of the downsides of a perennial garden is that you get it planted and sometimes it seems like well, a lot of work to be honest to Redo it right. So you know I'm I'm looking out at one of my perennial bid, the job pie we has really taken over a big part of the garden. I Love Joe Pye now I love the plan it's very Pretty bad. It's really getting to the point that I should go in there and remove half of it. That's going to take a half of a day with a shovel and digging and lifting and all of that, and it's very tempting to do it. But fall is a great time to do it if I go in now and take half of my Joe Pye. Weed out. Then, next spring, I'm going to have that area that is ready to plant with something else, and one of the reasons that now is a good time to do exactly. That kind of thing is because now you can see that giant swath of Joe Pye in your garden, and you cannot deny the fact that it's taking up more space than you. Originally intended and really you need to move some of it in the spring you can kind of fool yourself because it's not big it's not in flower you can't see its full size, but there's no denying in fall when you look out over your garden, what has grown beyond its bound I'm grinning because it's like Ellen was in my head this spring. because. I was out there looking at the U. Petroleum which is the Joe Pye weed and I was thinking Oh, it's not so bad. You can't do that now. It is so bad. So this is a good time to either remove some perennial plants that have gotten out of hand or it who moved perennial plants that perhaps you put in the wrong spot you know that maybe this plant isn't as tall as you thought, it was going to be and so it's hidden behind something else like all of you Pretoria. Or maybe the plant actually got bigger than you thought it was going to be and it's hiding other things and you really need to move it to another location. Or here's another reason to get in there and do some editing. Maybe that plant is just a little bit too much of a thug and you're thinking, why did I plant that gooseneck loose strife in the first place? This is a good time to pare down remove or transplant, and if you're going to transplant, there are a couple of things you need to do for a successful transplant and the first thing I would say to do is cut back most of that top growth you do not want to be digging up a six foot tall stem, of Joe, Pye weed leave a couple of leaves on it, but you want to cut it back to a foot or maybe eighteen inches and it's Going to be much more manageable for you to dig up that Rupaul in addition to editing out and if somebody is redoing their garden as as you are, it is a good time to think first of all, do I want to rearrange things? Do I want to redesign? Do I really want to put any of this plant back if? I'm? Going to find no, I'm going to have to pair that you Pretoria I'm back again in another five years should is included or should I plant it someplace else entirely so I would encourage people to make those assessments and see if they want to do maybe a little more than just the absolute necessity in terms of editing and redoing
"Hello. I'm Deepak Chopra and this is now for tomorrow. A collection actions you can do now during this time of disruption and crisis. To. Make. Tomorrow, better. Than today I want to take a moment to help things -iety in a time of crisis. The current pandemic of the covid nineteen. Has brought in its wake a different pandemic of anxiety and uncertainty. Sigmund Freud said that things -iety is like an unwelcome guest that refuses to leave. You are forced to adapt to its presence. How do people usually adapt to feel Psychologically. The do most important with are denied and distraction. By knowing your anxiety or doing something that takes your mind off it. You might find temporary relief. But is this something more permanent and effective? Can you get this unwelcome guests to leave? Yes, you can. The secret is to make conscious choices that goes feel to shrink away because you no longer needed. Fear is a holdover from early evolution rooted in the fight or flight response. It lies in wait. Ready to spring into action as it did for Hamad ancestors. Over two million years ago. But for the last ten, thousand years. The higher or conscious breed has evolved. And with it came infinite resources of thought. Feeling. Creativity and choice making. We were set free from primal fear. All we have to do is choose the bottom of consciousness. which is the bottom of inner wisdom. This is a theme I would be returning to over and over. Because the true secret making tomorrow better than today. is to, choose to, wake up. To make the right choices you need to be conscious of what fear is doing to. Fear is a form of stress. And you can choose to release that stress. That's where today's homework gums. You need nothing this homework except yourself. And comfortable place to lie down. Once, you're lying down comfortably on the carpet or a Yoga Mat. I'll offer an effective and very simple yoga pose known as Shabas. Where you simply lie still. REAP. And consciously relax. Lying on your back. Place your feet eighteen inches apart with your arms at your side bombs up. Close. Your eyes. Settle into the position. And breed naturally. Put your attention on your bread feeling your jest rise and fall. On the out bet, let your lungs deflate with this guy. EASILY BREATHING Then exile with the CY. Feel yourself becoming deeply relaxed.

In fulfillment is found along a different path. In the ancient wisdom traditions of India life presented to butts. The birth of pleasure and the but the wisdom. Every wisdom tradition east and West is based on waking up, which means in practice getting over your unconscious behavior and adopting conscious behavior instead. You're already doing that in our discussion of how fuel works. You are waking up to discover that fear doesn't have to be in charge. You might not think of this as. Budget. Tips. Every moment of inner wisdom is simply a moment of becoming more conscious and aware. I encourage all of you to try Shabas now. Taking five to ten minutes to read out stress and breeding relaxed.

Sally update: Storm downgraded to tropical depression
"Although Hurricane Sally has been downgraded to a tropical depression as it moves north eastwards across the US states of Alabama and Georgia communities can still expect to suffer from historic and catastrophic flooding citing authorities there the UN world, Meteorological Organization W. warned that a significant flood threat would likely spread inland on Friday along the central Gulf coast most river flooding will crest by the weekend, but rivers will remain elevated well into next week according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Sally has already produced up to eighteen inches or four, hundred, Fifty, seven millimeters of rain additional cloudburst our forecast bringing as much as twelve inches more rainfall. Or three hundred and four millimeters on the US Gulf coast where Sally made landfall on Wednesday today hundreds of thousands of people will act without electricity and at least one person has been killed according to reports images from Pensacola in Florida showed trees down boats thrown about and streets flooded with the water, some five and a half feet or one point six meters above sea level
Why Is My Serviceberry Losing Leaves in August?
"We also had an email from Japan this week and she says that she has three service berry trees that were planted about eighteen years ago, and she says, initially, they were planted in full sun. But now a maple tree shades them about fifty percent of the day for the past two years the leaves turn orange and fallen off in August. She says they treat those with acid fertilizer Bernard until late spring or early summer. Do you have any ideas on what they can do to keep the trees from an early leaf drop well now? Not nothing absolute. But at the same time service, Berry can certainly stand right out on the curb side in a in a curb lawn they can stand in a plain old front yard they can. As mine have done they can be planted east of a younger oak forty five years. Later they're in full shade by noon and and on top of aging also, but that factor Is Not bad for them because service Berry obviously can handle this on, but it also can thrive in I'm GonNa call it more limited light The shade may be the problem but it also maybe that the big old tree or whatever is giving them shade is has become so very competitive but they're going to have to upgrade the amount of water and. Well Yeah. The amount as well as the timing of the watering I mentioned a little earlier that I've started watering I think I did anyhow started watering in my front yard on Friday morning and the first thing that got it was half the oak tree roots and all three service berries Now they're aging out. So I'm having some problem with them. Per Se just age but they're they're still Competing with the OAK. Then I go back in my history of of hunting time in the early fall. And there is Actual saving on my part a humongous oak tree with great big buttress roots. forking out from the bottom of the trunk. There was a service Berry. Of oh. Three three and a half inches in diameter right in between those two. Well, two of the big buttress roots. It wasn't more than eighteen inches out from the the swell of trunk itself. It was standing probably twenty five or more feet high growing under and within the branches of a humongous Oak. Now, it was the time of year and I had been there before without paying attention but the time of year, when they they it I should say still had a full head of leans now full head in that case was greatly thinned for my trees which were younger and more son. So now with having said, all of that I have a hunch first of all, I don't think they would need to use an acid fertilizer enough. There's no Honda in. Because the the the acid gets diluted pretty significantly once it's installed the ground but fertilization is definitely helpful. I would say that they they need to upgrade to watering those service. Bury's at least every will ten to fourteen days. Good thorough soaking now they're not a creek. Well, one of their cultivars is shorter type that grows right along down to the water's edge us on a creek but by and large. They are denizens naturally of the wooded areas they're in competition I have seen them defoliated by nearly this time of year. And at CETERA. So I I don't think it's anything unusual other than for them to continue the care they've given them. If. It is possible to to lighten north soon out the tree or trees that is shading them. I think that would be of some small benefits I think all they need to do is keep them healthy perhaps a shot fertilizer either in November thereabouts or on into early March just to give them all they need to be competitive and I think they'll find that they can keep them from differentiating soon but maybe not at all totally.
Using Mint Around Tomatoes to Keep Critters Away.
"Tim Sanderson email this morning and tim has a tip and a couple of questions for you too. But the tip is he says that Like how he puts this to? Mr and Mrs Squirrel. Love. To take one bite out of his tomatoes and strawberries. Show this year he he planted cement. Around the strawberries tomatoes and for the most part they leave him alone. Have you ever heard of that Well now. I'm. GonNa have to divide my mini plant, take it up out of the window well, where I keep it control and put it near the tomatoes because boy do I need that advice I've never heard that before but if he says, it works, it works suits me. Mark. For suburban. I have worked critters than you can believe now in in in his case and mine I, am aware of the squirrels taking one bite and I don't know why they have to do that. But my nemesis is deer. I. I have a short story on that mark. It comes to the point of a friend of mine had some deer repellent in a sprayer. He said, well, if you're having trouble, let me follow you home. I'll spray your stuff for you which he did. That was the night. Since the deer came back in and eight again at being again they had come in two nights before and if the top side of the tomatoes when he sprayed them, they dutifully came in and took them down to about Puckett. Heights. And then the following night. The rascals came in and ate them down to about eighteen inches and even eight the tomatoes from around the bottom boy now. There's certain things I can't do legally. AGREEM- So the repellent didn't work. Well I'm GonNa say no either we didn't get it on at the right density thickness or you know had the dilution I should say I I don't. Although I know that I have some ornery dear moving through. So Tim. Just defy. Just to be ornery. Tim also had another tippy says a lot of times when his tomatoes just start to ripen, he'll pick them and then let them ripen off the vine and that way you know the squirrels can't and and other critters can't get to them well, and I I'm I'm big on that I've never it for that reason. But I always go out well with the first frost or certainly freeze warning in the fall I go on and pick all the tomatoes anything bigger than an acorn on up to two cutting size as it is green as it is wrapped them in newspapers stack, I'm in a open. The box and let them then. Ripened overdue time. I've had tomatoes out of my garden as latest. Thanksgiving. So yeah I'm favor that and thanks to him. That's a good recommendation I've never done it to. Stop the squirrels. I always just use language on them. Wow. Yeah. Yeah.
How Close to Plant Perennials Like Daisies and Black Eyed Susans?
"You know I've always wondered about plants like the astor's and the daisies and the this gorgeous black-eyed Susan's I've never really grown any of those. But so when you see these huge Arab, people will have these great big bunches of these flowers does that come from planning multiple different plants or can how big will one get? Well, one can. I. Let's go back to scratch. There are usually a whole bunch of them have been planted together. Now it's how close and if they want to get in a commercial situation in immediate effect, they'll go in at eighteen inches on center and get color and significant colored at first year. Now, that is however in my opinion. A slight over planting however of if that's what you want for the entrance of a great big corporate area or whatever. It's wonderful I. Usually, it is a number of plants. Now, they would buy your help and or otherwise you can dig and divide them. So matter of fact, with with most of the astor's, it's best. If you do dig in dividing every other year take the best parts, leave the center, the Party bought. His now dead and gone but it has sent out runners as as that term goes and you can take one plant from two thousand seventeen make five plants of it in eighteen, thirty, five planets out of it in nineteen and just keep going. But most of the things mark as you are enquiring where you see the the astor or the mom or what have you, and and and this year in particular those black-eyed Susan's of many different cultivars have been overwhelmingly

In case you have not heard the build Mo- par project car has been chosen and we. The people have decided that the modern Hemi will be going into a nineteen sixty eight dodge DART superstock tribute car, so now Hemi pages is on the hunt for nineteen sixty eight dodge DART hardtop to use as the platform for the built. So if you or anyone you know is selling a nineteen sixty eight dodge DART. Please reach out to my friends over a Hemi pages. You can go to Henry Pages. Dot. Dot Com or even build. Mo-. Par Dot com and reach out to those guys and let him know what you got. This is going to be a really exciting build, and if you didn't get a chance to vote on the first round, be sure to vote in on the next rounds and also tell all your friends about this project. We need to blow this thing up. We need to get thousands. Hundreds of thousands hopefully, millions of people involved in this and just see what we can come up with as a community I'm sure we can cook up something crazy, so that should be really fun. Maybe you've got a moped project. Project you're building or maybe you just went out and bought yourself your I. Mo par. Maybe it's not a show car. Maybe it's a little ratty. That's what we're talking about here today. I WanNa talk about the rise of the ratty muscle cars, because it seems to me that in the past few years, these ratty muscle cars and radio trucks have blown up. They are huge right now and I think I have the answer as to why this is occurring, but you know. I think it's multifaceted, but I really liked the movement I think it's an awesome movement. I think. It opened some doors for people that would otherwise not be able. Able to get into a muscle car. I think it lowers the barrier for entry for people like myself that don't have a lot of money can't buy show winning car that can't buy a fully restored Khuda or something crazy like that, but maybe you found a ratty mo par in your local classifieds for a couple of grand that needed a little bit of work, but you could tow it home and get running and driving lickety-split and get it on the road. That is Iraqi muscle car, and that's what I like to see. I love to see these cars on the road and not rotting into the ground. I think it's awesome. So now that we're warmed up, let's get this show on the road. This week project car the week is actually a truck that was posted on Wednesday July twenty, second at three PM, and going with the theme of ratty muscle cars and ratty trucks I thought this was a perfect fit, and it also happens to be really cool and has a ton of potential and would make an excellent project vehicle for anybody that wants to get in the Mo- par game and doesn't have a lot of coin in their pocket, so let's get into the at. Nineteen Seventy Dodge D. One hundred short box, five, thousand, six, hundred ninety five dollars Columbia Falls Montana lowered six inches the right way twenty inch wheels out back in eighteen inch up front wheels and tires, brand, new three eighteen auto, call or text titles. Status is clean. All right folks what we have here is what appears to be a running driving nineteen seventy truck. And it's got a cool Patina on it. It is not a show truck by any means if you think you're going to get. Show quality paint, and no dense dings or bumps bruises. You are wrong now. In case you're new to the show. I am a huge fan of mope par trucks and especially the nineteen seventy two to nineteen eighty, because I do have seventy six myself but I really love the early swept lines, and they have a ton of potential, but the good thing about trucks. For some reason they look amazing when their team it out. Maybe it's just me and now don't get me wrong I. Do love a beautiful. Beautiful Show Truck I. Love Him. I think they're gorgeous. There's something about an old. You know for lack of a better term farm truck that I really like especially ones that are slightly customized. You know little lowered with some nice wheels. They just have a personality and its personality that I really liked the nice thing about this one is that runs drives so like many of the other project cars? We've talked about the past. You can go out and enjoy this thing while you work on it this. This thing is good to go scout brand, new wheels and tires on it, and you know what it runs and drives. It's got a three eighteen in it, so you can keep three eighteen, or you can upgrade. Get a modern. Hemi, you know five thousand this. You could probably get this trump for five grand,
The Toxicity of Ego with Jocko Willink
"I'm your host. Alex jet and today we have A. With Jaakko Willing Jaakko was a leader that has become a regular on this podcasting and a friend of our team. He's a retired Navy seal, and the CO founder of Echelon Front and his book leadership strategy and tactics is an absolute masterclass in the practical fundamentals of leading well, but at the core of every practice habit and mindset. The JAAKKO teaches is an idea that if you don't conquer your ego, it will conquer you. You know I was very lucky. In the fact that in my career I worked for some guys had big massive egos, and you wouldn't think that would be lucky, but it's very lucky because you get to see what drives them, and you get to see the impact that it has on the rest of the team, and so your ego is something that's constantly there and look. As you know from the book. That I caught me of leadership that I wrote that I'm not saying you shouldn't have an ego, and we all have ego and ego can be a very positive thing. It's what drives you to work hard toward drives you to want to win, but when you start letting your ego, drive your decision making process, and you start making decisions that satisfy your ego instead of helping out the team, and helping out your subordinates, and helping out the people above you in the chain of command. Allow those things to happen. You're going start to go backwards and you'RE GONNA end up in a bad position, so you absolutely have to keep going check. You have to be looking out for other people looking out for the team looking out for the mission and put yourself at the bottom of that list. And I think one of the topics that you really highlighted for me. I realized like okay man. You really have to remove your ego to achieve this. Is that topic of detachment so I'd love for you to dive into where you became aware, because it's almost like it's like the six cents thing that lots of people aren't even aware of so tells a little bit about where you became aware of this as a strategy, and then what it actually is Jaakko so I hate to make it sound like one moment in time I was enlightened and I figured it all out, because that's absolutely not true, and I'm still in the process of moving forward and trying to figure it out. That being said as I talk about in the book. Leadership Strategy and tactics. I was in my first seal platoon I'm a new guy and not only my new guy. I'm the most junior ranking guy and on top of that I'm the youngest guy so I have. Absolutely no, no reason to be speaking. You know being a new guy in a seal platoon. You keep your mouth shut. You do what you're told you trying to learn right? You're trying to learn. You're trying to figure things out. We had been going through our pre deployment workup so doing land warfare and doing urban combat, and doing close quarters combat in jungle training, and we'd been through all those blocks of training, so I was progressing down the path of being a good seal, and we went on one trip. We were going to clear oil rigs, big oil rigs in southern California off the coast. You know in case were overseas and an oil rig gets taken over by bad guys. We can go take it back. So we're training for that mission and. We start off small just by how we're going to get onto the oil rig, we practice getting onto the oil rig. Then we start actually moving through the oil, rig and oil rigs are these crazy complex structures, and as you come up from the ocean. No once you get on board, the oil rig when you. It's actually called oil platform when you come up. The platform you up the stairs. You eventually get to this big giant deck big giant floor of the oil platform. It's called the cellar. Check for whatever reason. That's what it's called, and it's a big massive big massive area, and we only have sixteen guys in the seal platoon. So as the first couple guys get to that seller deck, they make this tactical call of flood, which means hey, it's a big area. We need everyone everyone a platoon up the stairs, and as we all know platoon, come up the stairs. We all fall into our standard positions, which is all of us standing like a skirmish line? Looking at this seller back so you've got sixteen guys. All sixteen of US seals in the tune where all standing there staring at the potential targets and the seller decks covered with equipment and gear and mechanical. Very cluttered thing and there's all the possibility of all kinds of places for bad guys to hide. And so I'm standing there. Looking down the sites of my weapon scanning for targets. And you know ten seconds go by, and then fifteen seconds go by, and and now I'm waiting now. Twenty seconds have gone by them waiting for. One of the leaders in my seal platoon to make some kind of a decision to make a call on what to do next. I'm standing there doing my job. Scanning targets and another ten seconds and twenty seconds go by which seems like ages. And, so finally I say to myself you know what I guess you. What's happening, so we're all standing in that skirmish line. We've all tracking whether weapons. I take a step back. Step back. Maybe a foot, maybe eighteen inches at the most I looked to my left. I looked to my right. And as I look I, see that every other guy in my seal platoon. is still staring down their weapons, staring down the sights of the weapons scanning for targets, and as you can imagine when you're staring down the site of your weapon, your field of view is not very wide. You can't really see a lot of what is happening well as I step back and looked around. I saw that every single guy was staring down the weapon, including my platoon commander, including my platoon chief, including my platoon assistant commander, including my platoon leading petty officer all the people that should have been making a decision. We're staring down the sights of their weapons so. It's pretty obvious wants I. Step back what we needed to do. So I. summoned up all the courage I could open my mouth as a new guy and I said old left clear right, which was a standard call. Nothing spectacular, no incredible, tactical genius here it's a standard of hold left clear right, and after I said that I kind of braced for. Someone to yell at me and say shot, up new guy. But instead they all actually did what they're supposed to do. Which is repeat the call down the line? Everyone said hold left clear I old buff clear out. Hold left clear right, and then they actually did it. The guys that were on the left side held in the guys that were on the right side started to move through. And then we continued on with the rest of the clearance, and we got to the end of the clearance, and we got into a little huddle to do a debrief. And we got into the huddle the debrief once again. I kinda braced for impact because I figured I was about to get smacked around for being a new guy with a loud mouth. And instead one of the senior guys in the platoon. says. Hey Jaakko good call on the seller deck.
Metal Roofs and Storm Debris
"You guys working on this morning. Well actually wanted to start with a question for Jeff at found some interesting things on home inspections. Dealing with metal roofs, and I just had a couple of questions. You, you ready Jeff. Bomb. With you know we could talk about ventilation in on roofs, but I've been in a couple of addicts recently with a metal roof on it, and there's a bunch of leaves and debris right underneath the ridge men. And, I think what's happening is because there's no resistance on that metal roof. Whenever we're having these, you know these great storms. It's literally pushing the leaves up the roof, and then down into the attic and I'm wondering is there. Yeah, that's very possible. Wow. You, it's an. New No sort of screen or anything like that. That's ever been considered. If not the not ideas, mind and someone's got to pay me for it so. I can I can definitely see how that can happen especially on the windward side of the roof that. Would blow debris up in that video cap. Mall amount. I'm telling you. It was like two or three inches of lanes about eighteen inches wide straight down that ridge, and it was in two different addicts. You know what that makes me think PAM is. That is that the leaves are are one concern, but critters that come on leaves are also another concern. Well Yeah Yeah, so I didn't know if I was trying to Google it and looking at I'm just gonNA. Ask Jeff if there's some type of whenever you're venting that metal. If you because I know on a regular asphalt when they put that Ridge van up there, it's basically encapsulated. It's got screen built in screening, but I'm guessing on the metal roof. It doesn't. Old saying. I've never even thought about that. I mean that's something to think about. It really is because that that definitely can happen
How Do I Get Rid of Garlic Mustard in My Yard?
"Successful growers for generations. Fred I know that In addition to the deer you've been cousin at them garlic mustard this week. Garlic mustard Is is could take over the nation. At least I think so. It will grow under around through about anything. It's it's a pretty little plant when it's just green leaves. Kind of a little cluster. Do you don't pay a bit of attention to year one It's a biennial so it grows just leafy you. Don't think much of it. You might kick it one but there leave the rest of them alone if you have to reach for him Well then they die down in the fall like perennial will however they come back in the spring then and right now they're about Oh between eighteen and n how they're over eighteen inches tall right now. Usually on fairly upright straight stems pretty little flower clusters on the tips of each stem in as best. I can tell from what I've been told. Each of those stems bears a whole bunch of seed and when those seed are ripe or say matured later on they flip out and spread themselves and I think given no care on a five year period. You could. You'd have to mow them nuts right. No no no Yes it's well. There are many weeds that are best. But this is an insidious little devil and when I tell you that under over and around I I'm thinking of hiring my grandson. Get on his hands and knees and go in under some plants to get them out. They'll pull fairly easily and if not how he or someone will have a trowel in their hand. But I do try to stop that rascal before.
How Deep Does the Soil Have to Be in a Raised Bed Garden to Grow Tomatoes and Peppers?
"Says she's thinking about putting in a small raised bed small garden on her patio so she can grow a few tomatoes and peppers and she wants to know how deep the soil would have to be. Well that's a good question mark. I'm GonNa stay deep as possible is the best answer now. Let's try to qualify that My uncle and his reclining time go to Mehta's in a water. Water filled apparatus That was only. I think maybe eight inches deep at the very most now. Most people probably aren't going to go into that particular kind of thing so I would say eight inches would be the absolute minimum depth then going to best case scenario eighteen inches is better the whole point being that if if you want to stay with tomatoes and it Cetera they can be and can be productive in a relatively shallower area. She wants to plant any loan stuff carrots then she's got to get down toward that eighteen now to be let's just say as as general in terms of gardening as you can think of. I Have Lois dig down twelve inches or have ever higher young guy with a shovel but anyhow down twelve inches through through that dirt decide on a tarp or for that matter throw it out but I would be inclined to keep a bit big down to that Ten or twelve inch. Ruth range put in minimum two inches of gravel. Now this would be just plain Pulverized gravel if he could even be limestone best but it wasn't but it's okay Three inches is better than put some some landscape cloth over the top of that gravel. So that leaves her with a nine inch depth of actual soil. Now that can be when she's talking about digging or I'm thinking of her digging down. She wants to raise it if she wants to. Stay on top of the ground. Then I would say you're still dealing with what is going to be ten to twelve inches deep Bordered by Goodwood. Or what have you So that you can stay on top of the ground I know well Ash. Ritchie's has been on with me from time to time. Grew blueberries here in Central Ohio on limestone rock because he went into raised beds having been there and pick some of these various and enjoying them. Thoroughly I know that he was not more than twelve inches. Deep with those beds so either down and start. Grab on the bottom or it's still best to put down. Maybe an inch gravel on top of the cle- junk or whatever it is still used hardware cloth then build up the good soil on top of that within boundaries and borders or not Action did not have borders on his his very bad but So it tapered up on over but I think even in the very center of it His soil wouldn't have been much more twelve or fourteen inches deep. So I think that's the best leader recommend four Louis The better drainage you can create on in ground or above ground is best comes in with there being an interface between her new sales repaired. So she's GonNa make whatever And and hard rock junk
What are the best types of hornbeam for making a hedge?
"Says that he'd like to plan an English style hedge with Horn beam and he says a lot of the hedge information he gets comes out of the UK of course where it's a very popular over there at the hedgerows and he was Wondering about car PINEY specialists okay. Or he said would God knows way more than I do you car pinal. Carolinian better for the US. He says I'm in zone. Six B the citing question partial shade slightly damp but DOB wet clay soil with a Ph about five. And how thin would I be able to keep the hedge? Because I'd like to keep it about three feet wide and about ten feet tall. Okay I think either of the Horn beams would do the job. I've never tested myself or watched anybody else. Make a choice on that. However there's nothing wrong with his idea. His six be puts almost any plant. Well any of the normal plans for this area in safety areas safety wise in terms of growth. And so on. I'm not sure which one will be easiest to keep narrow however it can be done. I've even seen Chinese ELM Hint believe me. That's a big sucker when you let it get away. But I've even seen Chinese elm held at three or maybe well just you say even a Max of four feet wide if the person that has them prunes maybe twice a year and somewhat severely the only problem. I finally Chinese which I don't recommend is that it it heads up at the bottom so you don't have the the thickness you want at the bottom now. Then any of those either. Either of those plants can work He asks what else possible There is private private of the one called. I bullied him. I B. O. L. I. UM and there may even be nor more new cultivars of that but that seems to be the sturdiest one four Ohio. From my knowledge point I had a neighbor. Have an well. No it's gone now. I had a neighbor that lived on around the corner from me planted Bullying privet eighteen inches on center. And I you know. Soviet obey grew. He trimmed they grew trimmed. They grew he trimmed to the extent that in about this. I'm going to say sixth year. He had to put four by eight sheets of plywood against the hedge somewhat straight up not quite and then put a ladder step ladder against the board so he could get up high enough to trim it off at ten feet. I actually watched that happen. I know the new people to go over the. They wished he'd never started that. Because by then the Privet were pretty sturdy as would have been the horn beams Prove it won't generally speaking be able to be held at two or so feet but again for for that kind of height I would think three Max can be determined on any of those. Three plants. it will require considerable pruning and and by that meaning at least twice a year once. I would say pre foliage because neither none of those three is going to be a flowering plant of any consequence to us or him and then there will be the growth period where they'll just spill out like the hair I used to can't it'll have to be cut off again to hold them for the summer. So a dormant pruning such as now or reasonably close to now and then right after full growth. And I don't even know how to measure that but Plants that are being held above ground by being pruned are not being restricted below ground. So the the roots are going to grow and Participate in heavy top girl so It just needs to keep after it. Don't let it get out of hand because if you cut back too far after you've let and it'll be some berry baron tissue in there at least initially so yeah. I think the the the two plus they are bullying privet will do that and believe me. This guy was well bigger than I am and he I can remember it matter if two properties away I could hear him discussing increase. Whatever he did it for purposes they're condos built behind him and that well I think at ten or twelve foot. I'm not sure what it was. But it blocked out the windows and even it was dense enough in twigs in the wintertime. To let's just say dissipate view through so I know it can work. I know it. Do you have any any preference between the Horn? Beam and the privet considering he wants three feet wide and ten feet tall because of my experience with Horn. Beam being mostly as tree. Form Abed isn't of planted as a tree. I guess I would have to go back to the privet. I know how tough it is I know that he could stand the forbade sheets. Matter of fact he eventually he did a four by eight with a four foot extension on it and then his electric cheers. And I don't know how many times you cut Takhar work. I could hear him discuss that but I know the did work I know. Based on some decent recall that it was about three feet thick. Now absolutely a rule that you'll have to follow regardless of what your us keep it broader at the base than it is at the top as soon as you let that invert itself into a V shape. It'll lose son at the bottom. Where there's no sun there's no creation of activity in the plant and you'll have no screening and the lower three or four feet and he says he's already in partial shade well then by all means jr a dozen steep taper but it absolutely in other words if he needs to keep it three foot wide at the bottom. Max then he would want to be headed toward by the timing. Is that height two feet Max. Okay so that it stays with sun coming in clear to the bottom. That's the way to keep the hedge where you want to be

"eighteen inches" Discussed on KTOK
"Car shower door entry doors into a house or a business any type of window glass that goes down to the floor in residential and commercial by law should be tempered. Would you know, we made a decision for the heights of our windows for the distance off the floor based on tempered right glass, because if you had to but tempered glass cost more that that is correct. And when you're dealing with eight foot tall windows, you would just as soon have plain glass, if it well if it's not going to be in an area that's likely to be broken. Right. Well, and that's something else. Some people may want to keep in mind is just because the law does not state. It has to be tempered. There may be certain applications where you want to put tempered glass in just for the safety of who is either around it being little kids, or is it a high traffic area to where if it should break. What what timber glass does when it breaks it breaks in two thousand one pieces. Just imagine your side carve your window of the car. Same thing for shower door. It's the same topic last should it break. It's gonna go thousand little pieces. It's going to be all over the place. Well, and it won't like have assured come down and decide to cut off a limb. Right. You're still going to get nicks and cuts and things. Like that. But you don't have to worry about large pieces of coming down. In potentially cutting you bad enough, you have to go to the emergency room because you've cut through tendons and things like that. You may still get nicks and cuts. It doesn't mean you don't get cut just your safety. Is been dramatically increased because it's small pieces. So tempered glass is is that I'm thinking a heat treated or something it that's another way to put it heat treated. So what they considered a Neal glass, which is basically like Amir or a piece that's non tempered. So a nailed is cuddle you can do fabrication to it. They take a piece of a Neal glass, and they put it through a furnace. And basically, it heats it up very very quickly, and it cools it very very quickly. And basically that changes the molecules of the glass now, I'm not smart enough to understand all that. But we we've been up there several times to what they call tempering facilities, and it's basically like a big oven as I call it. And that's what does it is. It's a changing of the molecules of the glass that changes the form of it of of how it's made. Right. So in the requirements on that I know that if it's like a couple of feet for a doorway it has to be tempered in a house. That's correct within twenty four inch twenty four inches arc of door. So basically two foot within two foot of a door, okay? Chamber glass or eighteen inches within eighteen inches of the four. Correct. It has to be all. Al- shower, doors showers must be tempered. Right. You may have a shower door that was from nineteen seventy and you want to replace the glass in it. If you bring it to us by law, we have to put timber glass in. So even if you don't have tempered at that point. We can't change it out without putting tempered glass in if you have three panels to the shower, and you bring us just one because that's the only one that got cracked we by law have to bring all three up to code. Wow. So a lot of times just replacing something, especially if it's older and it's out of date now a code. It's not always the automobile thing to do. Whereas you can go in and buy a whole new shower door for a little bit more versus just replacing three pieces of glass or two pieces of glass and update your house. That's one that really does pay for itself in an upgrade to a house. Some sometimes people do updates to a house, and it doesn't really is not a good use of money shower. Doors is one of those things that you can get a large percentage return, if you update your shower in that includes a nice clear shower door, if you've got a question for Brian for me. Give us a call eight four zero one thousand in dab good morning. Good morning. So do you have a question for me or for Brian for Brian? Okay. Excited about this show coming up because I I live in an older house, and my guest bathroom still house one of those trifold mirrors, the all the sections open up your medicine cabinet behind it. And I feel like it really dates Lee hill. Thinking. Maybe about replacing it what are the trends in mirrors, current trends and mirrors, if you have an older house in if you have. Updated it to kind of make it a little bit more traditional in a sense. There you could pull the medicine cabinet out take the wing doors down if you need to do sheet rock patches do that. And then just basically put a mirror in a wood frame. A lot of a lot of homes now or going with a wood trim that has been mounted to the wall. And then we inset the mirror inside of it. So it's not like a frame mere words matter from the back. You actually see it from the face. So that would be one option to do another option. You could do if you're kind of making your house a little bit more modern. A lot of those homes. Now, the trend is to do kind of either like a floating mirror where we managed to three quarter plywood to make it look like it standing out off the wall. Or they're wrapping it with a metal framework. That is a very thin line. Kind of has about a five eighths lip that overhangs the face of the MIR. So it gives it a frame MIR look, but it's more of the metal frame instead of being kind of your traditional thick, bulky wood frame. Craig showroom where you have samples of all of those things. Yes. Yes. Will and summit. We have samples on display. Other ones are ones we taking pictures on jobs things we have done for different customers. The unfortunate part about trying display. Everything is as times change, and it's very hard to keep up with having enough for space for everything. You guys do have a good show room to where you can you can see the different types of the glass and the different types of mirrors and stuff. Yes. Yes. Yes. People still Bevill mirrors. Yes. Actually, they do and were were one of the few. There's two companies here in Oklahoma City. They have Beverly machines, and we're one of two here in Oklahoma City area that you have Beverly machines. Now, we have limitations, obviously. Which is it's a straight line. So as long as you're a piece of glass has a straight edge to it's not curved or anything like that. We can battle it right there. In house. I've seen in some of the upper end houses mirrors that are just baffled. And that is the frame look that that is correct. And that's that's the other thing. You can do is you can do a Bevill with Amir. You know, you can really dress it up. You can do what the what we call a bevelled overlay, which is where you take in mere and we can do anywhere from two to four inches wide on a Bebel strip where it's been bevelled from both edges and then that is applied to the face of the mirror. So it gives it a dimensional look to it. So you basically have MIR laid on top of MIR with the outer MIR being bevelled. Wow. So that sounds pretty fancy. Yeah. So you can get real fancy. It just really depends upon what somebody's wanting to go as far as looks. I love the look of the mirror that kind of stands out from the wall. You've been in like museums and stuff where they've got the little glass frame explaining what's in the case or something and it extends from the wall. A little bit has a spacer and those look really good, right? And that kind of goes back to that floating MIR look. You can do the floating MIR look with with a Bevill on it. You know, one train we saw, and it's still you still see from time to time. It just kind of has to match the houses people were wanting to do a backlit mirror. So they were they were we were applying three-quarter plywood to the wall. They were wrapping with LED strips around the wooden, and then we would put a mural on the face of the wood, but overhang it two inches homicides. Maybe one inch at the bottom two inches at the top. So you hide the MIR high would and then it gives the glow behind it. That's kinda cool. How about the TV in the mirror? Do you guys ever? Have you ever done that? Yes. Really? Yeah. That's the Waldorf Astoria in Vegas has the weather several that do now it used to be the Mandarin orient Mandarin Oriental. Now, it's the Waldorf Astoria city center in Vegas in. That's such a pretty place to stay. But they have the TV to where you can walk back and forth between the bedroom and the bathroom, and you have a continuation is in the mirror. Well, in in what we do a lot of those were, you know, somebody wants that true MIR look, but what the TV in it. I will be the first to tell you that to get one that is very much looking like a mere you have to pay quite a bit of money. We do have one that we do is called MIR pain, which is often what you think of like cop shows, you know, you can see in one side. You can't see right? But then there's the lighting changes. Then you can see the other side. Well, we have a way that we've gone through in. We could make portion of it where the TV isn't look as much like a mirror as close as you can get without actually silvering the back, and then keeping the other portion to where the TV it's. Yeah. So you can have your mere look. But then all of a sudden the TV in there as well. But it's not an exact match to a mirror. You know, that one way one way mirrors that what they call it mirrored glass the mirror pain. We're putting that in our office. We were designing a new office right now. And I like that. So that it's you know, people can still see in or you can still see out whichever. My daughter has that in her office because they do therapy for children. And the parent they want the parent to be able to look in and watch the therapy session without it being distracting to the child inside for speech therapy. You know, so they have that in all of their doors. And and you know, there there is a trick to it in a lot of people don't understand this. And so they may try to put it in. And they in the end, it doesn't work for them. Whatever side you want somebody not to be able to see the lighting has to be greater on that side. Right. If the lighting balances out or there's more light on the side of the at your don't want to be seen on then you can actually still see through a little bit tricky. It's a little bit tricky. And you have to think about office situation that that's pretty good 'cause the hallways are typically not quite as bright as inside an office. Right. We're talking to Brian Jones from capitol glass and mirror. Thirty six and MacArthur in Brian euro wealth of knowledge here, we're gonna return if you have a question for Brian do give us a call. We've got time for another call eight four zero one thousand and will return right.

"I'm Liz with me today. Your patron case. All right now, let's get back to our podcast. How 'bout everybody's favorite science fiction monster creature ticks? Facebook. The other day was a little documentary with a close of showing the life cycle of the and they got up close on the ticks maths. It was disgusting. Oh, the little league where they can burrow in there and suck and ratchet and hang. Oh, yeah. We've got a couple of people recently, come oh. My dog, whatever hiking or wherever around there out terrible here. They can be your round. But it's pretty much worse as the weather gets more, right? Yeah. Usually if we get a couple of good frost in the winter that'll cut down on the population a little bit. Did we get any frost this? Well in my house. I guess it's killed couple of my plan. Oh, we did get a couple of. Yeah. Well, hopefully knock on wood knock on melamine, hopefully that will cut down on the tick population a little bit. I know back east they can have heart frost and blizzard Senate come spring the ticks come out. So I don't know what the differences may be the species. And by the way, those tickets are very very Harvey. Yes, let's talk about species trivia for you. There's more than one type a tick and they have different regions. If you could go Google it online. There's maps up there. But there's American dog tick Brown dog tick tick, Gulf Coast tick and several more. It's not just one species attack in their different sizes different colors. It's disgusting. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Both both leasing ticks can transmit disease and some really serious if you're using any kind of pesticide on your puppy dogs, pesticide a fleet treatment anything like that check. Because a lot of them do cover many things. But are they covering fleas sticks and heartworms or just pleasing ticks, and you have to find something else for take a look make sure, you know, one of them is your might as well as fleas index, but it doesn't do worm. So check your covering all your bases with your. Well, if we're talking about ticks, let's talk about how to take them off. Because a lot of people don't like to touch him. There are. Yeah. But you here every time there's somebody who's like, hey, hey, Tra. Well, just because she has fingernails that are three inches long. Your touching jails which doesn't really touch flesh. Documentary. They were talking about you shouldn't use your bare hands because there's Hamby transmissible on the body. But then I was thinking about you. And I thought you're using your tweezers. Drop of your hand or anything. I'm sure that the small chance of it. But still there are commercial tick removers just little plastic things with a little via in the end that you can scoop under to make sure you get the whole tick out in. You're not breaking the head off for breaking the body those work. Well, I know I've done it with the very fine tip tweezers, and then just reached down and get sometimes I'll even get a little pinch of the skin to make sure I get the whole ticket out sources that I trust have really don't do the opening petroleum jelly on them. Or better yet? Don't burn a mattress cigarette. Yeah. You are on you hear hair on your dog. Burns your dog. But it also is if the tick feels like it's under attack like that will actually it'll throw up in your dog and your dog's body what it has been taking in. And then all of that comes out at once, and if it is carrying disease, that's just a guarantee your dog is gonna get that. And you don't need to hang on twist or corkscrew or do any about just pressure out pressure away from the body continual pressure until it works out, then I will put them in a little Susser hall or something or or if I don't have alcohol a little saucer, and it at that point do not flush them, most of them survive, the flushing water just not kill ticks so carefully with. Oh, no. If you mash them than blood squirts everywhere, and you have no idea if you're going to get a drop of that blood. On you. Or no, burn them. Just burn them carefully. God, they're just nasty little nuclear them. Yeah. Nuclear them. Roaches. The last PC's. Yeah. Rats in wrote. This takes all over the. And we won't want to be here. All right. Some of these things to think about with whispering time. I know a lot of us have been told when time changes which is already happened as we record this. It would seem like it was early this year to check the battery center smoke detectors and our CO two detectors, but there's a few other things that I like to do I won't even say kind of because Kate and patriot would laugh at me. But I'm obsessive about the first day kids. I grew. Yeah. I just whatever reorganized it, and I clean. It's a bigger. So in our travel RV, well organized in our travel RV and here at kindred spirits, and at home, I have a first aid kit, and it encompasses stuff for the dykes. And for people I e kit does not begin to cover, you know, that's the kind of storage box that people store blankets. If. We're okay. Read every book size new now, I have a portable. Is it three by eighteen inches eighteen inches? Yes. So I have a portable first-aid station. But how many times does that come in to come in handy? Maybe needs anything. I ate wise. Ask Liz need anything. Just bizarre. Ask you Kate. Oh. Anybody needs anything plucked with nails? We all have our skills. So anyway, when the time change this year, I took the first aid kits out. An went throw throw away the stuff that was expired made a list of stuff that we'd used up refilled it reorganized it because when people use stuff they have a tendency to just throw it back in so. Emergency. When hurry rear case bleeding. Reorganized it but it back on the shelf. So that's one of the choice that I do. But other things have expiration dates to I mean pet foods do for one thing if you've had stuff on the shelf the in back your pantry. Three times a time just to get your whole kitchen pantry and you'll find those dogs treats like oh, well that was from two years ago. Those out canned food food anything the Alex expiration date and just toss it. In the do any of you to spring cleaning? I'm going to be I'm going to be cleaning out a friend's house. And I've already poked into the pantry and there were things that expire two years ago. Oh, yeah. You're not sure why she had twelve cans of pumpkin. It was probably on sale. It's probably on. But it expired. Three years ago. Yeah. I was hoping I can give some stuff to the food pantry. This. Stuff's is going. Okay. I'll make an admission. I'm I'm on a diet started last month, and I cleaned out my kitchen, and I had some pumpkin in there that I bought for the dogs for just in case when there was a problem. It was five years expired. Thankfully, my dogs. Have had good digestion. So same thing. I had a box out that I was gonna take donate in. It all went in the trash. Maybe year-old is third all in a bowl chickens. Yep. Yeah. They love it. Yeah. I wouldn't have brought you five year old. It might have exploded. Exploded when you tried to open it. Okay. I did chip for him. And it didn't expire sunscreen for my dog. Oh, yeah. My boy has very thin cooped short here and sensitive skin since tips really now this is the Jack Russell terrier not the cockerpoo. He has very sensitive skin. I used to laugh at him. But because you know, terrier Jack Russells stable horses chasing rats. He is the most city-fied sensitive being. And he's sitting on Cates lap right now with his eyes closed. Ignoring me. This time of year. He gets a bit of a rash on his belly. And I'm pretty sure it's the Rosemary plants growing all over my backyard that he just because he's chasing the lizards in the mice. Yeah. He won't stop doing it. And he ends up with a skin rash. Yeah. If you like to put your put put a bowl down on the floor for water bowl for your pets. Or if you've got a big one outside like, my dog spend most of the day inside with me, especially if I'm sitting at the computer writing, but if they're outside, of course, want them to have water, and I've got a big galvanized ball that gets dumped dumped in refilled. But I don't I'll admit I don't often scrub it. But spring and fall is a good time. When you do all the other chores, a good time to scrub that sucker out a lot of bacteria, mold mildew, all kinds of stuff can get going in there. How about your dogs beds? Lot of times unless they stink. We don't think about throwing them in the washing machine. So, you know, take the cover off. So I'm in the washing machine. You just get used to them as being part of the landscape in the room. I do know here at kindred spirits, sometimes I walk into the office. And we've got a stack of multiple crates for dogs that aren't helping in the class at the moment. And sometimes I walk in here and go oh. Everybody. Grab your, you know, the blankets and the cushions in the bedcovers from whichever create your dog hangs out in wash it so thinking ahead to to the warmer getting warmer. Warmer weather Christophe gets too hot. I won't be able to take my dogs many places 'cause I won't leave them in the car, right? But if it's not bad, I will take them out. I still like to air on the side of caution. And now that I'm driving truck again with a camper shell one of my to do list is I don't trust the screen on the window in the camper. Shell so longtime ago, I put up ventilated shelving over that window. Tire shelving, the plastic covered wire shelving. I thought when I first saw it. I thought that was great ideas. So I can leave the windows open without worrying about puppy dog going through the screen or somebody sticking their hand in either way. So that gives them more ventilation. And time to clean up their travel. I do leave them make sure they have nice cold water in the back of the truck is. Well, the winter. I don't bother. They don't care about it. The film and time to break out the sun shape for the windshield. That's been kicked to the back of the cab of the truck. I'm back. Winter by my since then coated terrier he wants the Cav warm. He wants the heat possible. Yes. Now, it's time to break out that full windshield screen. And make sure yes. All right. Well, hopefully, we gave you some ideas for spring lot of times, we you know, we did the smoke alarm in the CO two alarm, and that's it. But now when you've got a momentous occasion like turning back the clocks or forward the clocks. That's a good reminder for a few other choice. Before we sign out, and literally we've had Hugh people recently their dogs leashes break. Oh, look at.

"You know, it was like eighteen inches of snow. It was in February. I was my little brother owns a boot teak. So one of the people that we've it makes little woodworking things that my brother would sell it is not. So we went out to go pick up some of those. And he's like you wanna go see. The research area. It's been pretty active. So we went I saw a couple twenty one inch long footprints in snow. Wow. Yeah. Do like in you could even steal the dermal ridges in the ice. Because whatever it was put was so hot when it hits the snow. It was probably a foot deep snow. I think this was like two thousand fourteen thousand if king maybe thirteen I don't know. You could feel the the dermal ridges of whatever it was what which was mind boggling me, this was this was one of my very first experiences. We had response would not be had we heard brunch. We heard Ohio Howell. That was just amazing. You know, we're almost playing peekaboo one behind the tree 'cause you would see I come out from behind the treating these of the head, and it looked like it was maybe a juvenile evenly sixty tall. But it's head was just massive. And it would like kick out from behind the tree and look at us. And we flash red light flash late at it. And they would blink. It's I back. It was it was crazy. And you know, I mean, the offers always there man, you'd with with your son and stuff you guys always come out to our campground. It's very very very carefully play. We're working people. We all want it. So. I'm just going out there to for sure, man. I definitely want to get out there stuff with you guys. I know I am making some plans later this summer and stuff to possibly go out that way, if I do I'll keep in touch with you, and I would like to get the whole crew together, you Dave Jamie, Jenny and anybody else, you guys think would be fun to have out and stuff and just kinda all go out there and enjoy each other's company. I think we're we're really on the right track here. I mean, I don't you know, I really appreciate what what you've done for the community. And and you sticking your neck out there to talk to people like me that opens talking about whatever it is. I experienced with an unbiased point of view especial, you're really helping the community out by doing what you're doing. And I just I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. And how much it means me to know you as a friend and to be able to share my experiences on your show, man. That means the world. And so I just wanna thank you in front of everybody. Oh, man. Thanks. Thanks for. This guy words, man. I really appreciate it. Just the kind of person. I I don't think on the smartest person in the world. I enjoy mysteries. And I don't really care. What people think about me? So put that all together. And this is what you get. Exactly what you get. You. Get a nice little conversation between us talking about what you know talking about what we think going on. But we really have no real, you know, no, real answers. I mean, we have here Eason. And that's a good thing to have. But we don't have answers. But I feel like I feel like we're on the right page anymore on the right track. And I feel like we will have some answers in our lifetime. You know, because we're going to go get those answers. We're not, you know, I'm not stopping, you know, and and I'm learning things, and I was there.

Hands that well motivation instead of a log I understand, but the safest place for you to be as where you are right now very public once, you know, the genie's out of the bottle here. Doug. That's right. And that's and that really makes you safe west of the Rockies you're on the air with Doug, ruby. Hi. Hi. Where are you? I'm in north Hollywood. My name is Lou. Okay. Never called before. Thank you for having me on. I have a couple of things that I'll try to be very brief. Okay. I agree with the man in Virginia that this is much larger than. And. UFO's? I think it has something to do with thoughts or things energy. The law was the magic of the universe is energy. Adding said that I have a question for Doug. Okay. When I went to Stonehenge. The friend that I was with said, gee, what's the sense that this or what's what's this about? Stood on the top of this hill. And I turned what is that three hundred and sixty degrees. And I said you can see. Three hundred and sixty degrees. You can see looking at the world from here. Is there a pattern of these? Of these crop circles around. Don't engine any way. Is there a pattern in which they fallen on the earth there? Do you understand my question? Exactly. And you're absolutely correct there allay lines or lines of energy extending out from Stonehenge to other ancient megalithic sites all around that area for eight hundred miles the old many of these formations form right on these Lee lines and the one we talked about earlier, the Julia set is smack on two of those lay lines and Stonehenge is right in the middle of those lay lines, and that's going to magnetic north. Another thing if you've completed that question that answer y'all go ahead. Nineteen fifty eight on my husband was in the air force. I was newly married I was eighteen and we were looking for places to live, and there was an old gentleman out of around. Lancaster? I believe around several miles out of. E e. Who took us into his born might say a single storey barn and showed us what he said was a flying saucer. And it looks something like about sixteen to eighteen inches high circular about. Twelve or fourteen inches across and it resembled. What looks like the capitol records, still ding art. If you've seen the capital records building. And all course. I have no other information than that. I was eighteen I didn't question him any further. But he said it flew does this resemble anything that you were trying to explain to us about what this combination of layers of disks would look like if you've seen a picture of the capital records building. I don't know what that building looks like I can tell you that there have been folks around since I've been in the last three or four years. That I've come in contact with that. That have built machines have built saucers model saucers have flown them. And they work on on magnetics what we're into it. This is a totally different energy. Although those magnetics do work with this energy. And I should probably retract that statement, for instance, if you went with just a simple little lever Tron top that you can buy right now, the magazines the the instructions were that things say you're going to have to take off some weights or put them on from day to day or from the morning to the afternoon. I advertise electron I've got one here. Okay. I I played with it too. So wh what I'm saying to you is why is that his gravity changing? No. This thing is working in conjunction with this energy. And this energy flow like clouds around every day with us. In other words, there's there's more sometimes and. Other times. And that's why these guys in there clever Tories turn on their their free energy machine and either freezes up or heats up because they can't they can't modulate it for the amount of energy. That's president at that time. I god. So you're saying that's why the lever Tron, and you're absolutely right. People have played with it out there. No one day you've got to have one little weight on there. The next day. You've got to make a little change to make it work. That's right. And through through the magnetics. The the the spinning it's interacting with this energy. Wow. I retract I'm sorry. I said that Lou. Yes. I mean, they have been touching on what we're looking at here is the the the frosting on the cake for I mean, this is the this is the real wow stuff. This really is the wall stuff. Have you have you ever? Have you had the opportunity to sit down with a a good scientist and explain this will they listen I did that for the book when I got into the physics. I was Daffy duck. And I I did have a friend that whether physicists and we sat down for good afternoon. And I shot a lot of questions about this. We came to some determinations I run through this in the book. Yeah. When we start getting into power plant in the back of the book as far as I could go with that at that point. We've gone a lot farther than that now. But he didn't understand a lot of what I was saying, but we did to come to some conclusions. He did not understand whatsoever. This energy source. The whole thing. He said, you know, we just came to some. Commonsense conclusions with it. And he he also pointed me towards a couple of books to read from physicists who who wrote to the for the layman and from those I gleaned a lot of information, and I pass the reader. When I had out of it that should be related because you don't want to get into all these particles. Sure, you said something a little while ago. I can't let go you said that you know, of some people that have used. What you have learned your virtual manual flight manual, you call it to build some saucers. No. When I Well, I I miss dated myself. What I'm saying is is that there are individuals out there that have built saucers that have they have flown by by remote control models. Okay. Yep. And they were they are now quite paranoid. They were told never to touch again. And don't talk to anybody about it. And if they didn't want to do that there would be severe consequences. So that's where they're at with it. It's it's a it's a it's a dangerous arena to get into for some reason. Let me read this to you see if it makes sense Doug has likened crop circles to the hand and voice gesture is used by an animal trainer to communicate with a dolphin trainer. Begins was simplistic commands and gestures and as the animal learns, the gestures become more complex and begin to build off one another. But just as a parent wouldn't teach your child's run before they had learned to walk one would think a trainer wouldn't teach an animal complex tasks before the animal had learned and demonstrated. They had learned the basics. It would be futile from the perspective of the trainer and totally confuse the dolphin. If crop circles are elaborate hand gestures in quotes to the human race. Why would they have grown in complexity over the last seven years if no one yet understood them one would think they would only grow in complexity if there was some evidence of learning some demonstrative form of understanding which begs the question who's learning and how is this learning being demonstrated? You asking me that question, you bet as for Mark in Los Angeles, actually. They're right here, Mark, we're not dealing with somebody that's off planet, sending this stuff across basin thing or hopefully they received this message. They're right here. They know I've done this. They know this shows on tonight, and there there are probably very happy. I would say so don't you know, I hope that answered your question by the complexity even though everything came to a halt there for a few years with the holsters things are becoming more on track. All the time you're going to see some more programmes on crop circles in and the crop circles are coming coming back. Even though what you see out there in the media so stifle in this country. That it's tough to get any information on it, it it is coming back again Doug after tonight. You are going to be approached by a number of television programs who are going to want to bring cameras and get a visual demonstration of what you have. So exquisitely laid out tonight that's going to happen. Doug. Are you willing to do that? Yes. This is my job are all right. Here's this represents from Honolulu. Hawaii many factors Doug please ask dog if he is ever viewed his spinning model with a Strobe light or different flash rates and varying model RPM's this might show up yet. More information. Very perceptive. Absolutely. And with the newer newer crop circles out much of the hormone IX the the speeds, and we're getting into something here with the planets, and how what the what they did with this machine. Is they looked at the planets the energy with between the planets. This is involved in the machine rings harm harmonica, the spheres, and I do use a Strobe and I use halogen lights. Oh, really? And I I've just finished my newest machine third one here. And this is got a very act with it. I can I can run. At a very specific speed. And I got an RPM I need this. I got concerned they're giving us all the information. I don't need to know all bunch of antibiotics I can just read it off a meter, Doug. When you get that public really public and the television shows are gonna come. They've.

"We're talking gardening. And let's at right back on phones calling up by Josh Joschka born and calling him from Folsom morning. How're you doing real good? Thanks. You got we have a Lantana plant and is way on Rulli, and we're trying to figure out how to. To trim. It win the trim it and all that kind of stuff to get back under control. What's real, easy, Tom? I don't let it get. So out of control in the future number one. Okay. Take five take better to occasional light pruning to keep them about the Saudis. You want them to be then I real hard pruning after you've left blanket way out of out of control. So number one. That's your lesson. You're learning from this particular situation is in the future be brave and step in sooner rather than later at this point. You have to of how big you want the shrubs to be exactly that is dump station. So it's just overly large how much too large isn't. And does it need to be. That's so far back at least you need to cut. It is is you want it to be. So if you need the two feet tall, you cut back at least two feet if you need it to be eighteen inches tall. You could've back at least eighteen inches take very well, the hard pruning. So it will come back out L grow for you. Again, it won't bloom for a while. It's going to spend his time growing from a hard cutting back, but it will eventually come back in a balloon for you again. So cutting back. Doesn't prevent it from flowering it just sort of stops her from flowering for a while. Now again in the future. If you want it to be a two feet tall as he gets to be two and a half feet tall. You wanna cut it back about six to eight inches, and then you can continue to do that. And we'll come back into bloom faster from a lighter pruning than it will be a hard pruning. Now. How do you get to grow tall? Ours won't grow it grows wide. Okay. Why they've been bred to grow in different shapes. We don't want oftentimes really tall leggy strategy land. Hannah Hannah's have been bred to be more horizontal growing more mounding or spreading and denser. And so that's in the genetics of the plant that you have. Indeed, if the size is an issue there are more dwarf growing lane Tana's like the bandanna land Tana's are are quite compact growing. If you want tall ones, make sure you buy one that says it's gonna go to be three to five feet tall. So we do have tall antennas out there again, they're not as popular because people don't want big plants like that in the landscapes things. They want something smaller in their flowerbeds. But there there. Yeah. This one this one only goes like maybe ten inches tall and spreads out four feet. Flowers, orange. Okay. Well, again, you can trim its diameter than type is not an issue.

So I've allowed mind to get a little less than perfectly cone shaped they're growing together so they can't become cone shape and they are indeed going to be there to replace a dying Honey, locust, which is breaking my heart, but that's another whole story in its own. Now, I know people are always calling up and one of the questions they ask when it comes to trees as I need something that's fast growing a papa's pretty fast. Yes, they are. It's not uncommon will I'm thinking the bigger trees now they'll put out growth twelve to as much as eighteen inches long. Pretty consistently with great big, fat leaves and so on. And then the it is what's called stolen for us. It's got some other names. The plant will spread itself by underground structure. Kind of grasses grow between of course, very much larger. It'll send out underground, shoots and then pop up a new stem. Those new stems. One of them right now started off this spring, and it was in a position that I thought maybe I'd like it there. I semi guarded it from my own feet and so on. And it was just when I noticed at six or eight inches tall, it's now. Very tall, but it's taller than I am at this point. So that's, let's call it five and a half foot in a new shoot coming up all in one year. It has thrown aside stem already, which is just the development of normal trees. But the only thing you have to guard against or or be aware of a better way to put it is if you plant Papa, you'll have to then five and then seven, and it's just a matter reaching down at the clippers and cutting them off so that you don't end up with the whole forest Fulham. You don't need that many fruit, even they are good taste. So it's just a wonderful long tree hardly used enough. When you want see one out in the sunshine growing wealth that perfect cone ULA definite from one hundred yards away hereafter is just it's just a perfect cone. You put it in the woods, let the deer bite and the Turkey scratch it, and the deer rub it with their Antlers and so on. It's a completely different creature, but it still has that delectable fruit. And if you get one and it gets the fruit on it and it's growing well, you might see guy in your backyard named Fred. How're try to steal your free well or else I'll come in with my little soft camel hair bristle brush in the spring, get into their flowers and take it to my plant. There you go, whatever..
