Experience well it began with me going to school while i was getting my doctorate. Musical arts in conducting. I ended up in the hospital and i had abdominal pain which they diagnosed as stress induced told me to go home and relax and in fact i had no idea what to do but luckily i have a sister who has a phd in health behavior. So when i'm in the hospital just in pain laying. They're not even really understanding. How i got there or why and i honestly didn't even believe that stress could cause physiological symptoms an. Emily said how did you not know that. I'm a conductor. And a singer. I have learned in my musical training to express my feelings with my body to use my body as a vehicle for expressing motion and it occurred to me that if it was true that i didn't just have those feelings on stage. I had them all the time high whole life and if that was true. Wow that was a lot of feeling. So i didn't even want to believe this was true but once. Emily brought me a huge stack of peer reviewed science. I couldn't deny anymore. Yes dress manifest in the body and can turn into symptoms of illness. So let's start with definitions. What are the three components of burnout. So according to the original technical definition from herbert fern burger in the nineteen seventies burnout which originally was inclusive. Only of the workplace has expanded now involves de personalization.

Early Spring Means 'Last Call' for Transplanting
"Now i know that this is the time of year when you say it's the last. Call for transplanting. Yes now by that. Meaning i. I'm looking at several things in my yard in the near area that are starting to put out leaf wise and or even flower wise. I would say that right now. You either have to get the transplant done. Sap like noon today or soon or wait until the new growth has hardened off with some sunlight some growth and so on. Because i think to move things when they're in full. Spring growth is is detrimental. Now i know it has been done in a commercial sense. You just have to do some things when you want to. Instead of when the plants best suited but I don't see any reason why why not i. I didn't do one of the things that's going to do this week. I have to fatten. sassy brilliant. Yellow chrysanthemums. I was going to move the monday Tuesday wednesday thirty now. We're at saturday. They're not done yet. I because they have only just started. Oh maybe an inch and a half to two inches of growth. I wouldn't hesitate to pop them out. Divide them down the middle etc and replant them but things that are coming on for example. I have peonies right now. That are oh at least ten inches and one plant is it features itself in good son and so on. It's almost knee-high already. Buds are setting. And then i have a japanese tree peony that has put out about. Oh three almost four inches a growth. The buds are starting to set. I would not even think about moving it at this point now i also have. Then what's a little little. It's a fern leafed peony that is Very very very fine. Textured leafs
How Katherine Raz Developed 'The Fernseed'
"Welcome back to the slow lovers. Podcasts with deborah printing at. I'm so excited today to introduce catherine razz owner of the fern seed in tacoma washington. She's a slow flowers member. We've never met in person. We're doing this over resume. But we're kind of neighbors so it's so great to see on the screen to look if you kathryn. Thanks for having a really appreciate it. Oh you bet catherine I love the name of your business. You've been on my radar. Because i started following you immediately after the joint slow flowers but before we get started. Can you describe the name like what is the influence of that name. It says plants with gardening and growing. But it's not super obvious. It's a great name. Yeah thank you. The name is scandinavian legend. Or there's like a north legend or early english or something A myth about essentially like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow if somebody finds a fern see because we all know that ferns spawn from spores not seeds. Sometimes we'll get people coming in and explaining that to us any ladies. Did you know But the idea is that if you find the seat of a fern on the summer solstice you can achieve invisibility Lower and so then. I also really liked it because I have a background in marketing and specifically search engine optimization and It was a it was a word that was easily. Google lable like we could be a worthy number one ranking term and google for the fern seed so i picked it also for that reason. Oh it does. It does have a little bit of a mythology kind of storybook vibe that you describe it because this'll related to the solstice. Do you do anything. Special on the summer solstice in which is usually what june twenty-first. Yeah well we try to last year but of course we were just reopening post covid and we were like well. We can't really have an event but this year we are. We're going to do sort of like a midsummer you know the film summer we wanted to do. Kind of like a midsummer maget with flowers and do some floral crowns and some really fun stuff around the love. That is so. It's so apropos. A love that.
'Nomadland' drops Frances McDormand into a rootless life on the open road
"So nomad land is based on a nonfiction book of the same name by jessica bruder. It's about these folks who are in many cases older they're sort of battered by economic changes particularly the Economic meltdown of two thousand eight. They are left with very few options. And this fictional story about fern was written by khloe. jiao is also the director as we mentioned fern. This lifestyle is connected to her grief over her husband staff and it it leaves her at really the mercy of the weather and other people. She has no access to health. Care any kind of security. But there's also. I think it's safe to say a freedom in it that she appreciates at times She has a chance to see new things and be independent. There are a lot of kind of sweeping vistas of the western great plains and she starts to develop a relationship with a guy named dave. Who's played by david straight there and and obviously that complicates her wanderings somewhat. Glenn what did you think about nomad. Land. i mean this is pretty great right. I mean fair warning. It is unhurried. It is discursive it's also as you mentioned. It's in love with the natural environment which is very Khloe zhao thing. It's smartly a film that teaches you how to watch it because in those opening minutes we the audience are that woman that fern meets at the store. Were worried about her. Where the manager that gas station. We want her to find a shelter for the night. Because it's going to be cold She's been dealt a couple serious blows and the story of the film is her finding an equilibrium. It's not perfect and it's fragile and take some work to maintain we see the work it takes to maintain but he's got the strength and resolve to maintain it finds a community Found family which is something queer folk no little something about That said you take frances. Mcdormand out of the equation. I'm not sure. I'm still as invested. Because that actor is just an empathy engine. It just radiates from her Even when the role she's playing is more comedic as it is in fargo or even when it's a completely underwritten and onenote like it wasn't three billboards. There's not a trace of condescension in any role. She plays humankind essential or socioeconomic condescension. No actually remove no sense of judgment because francis. Mcdermott is a woman who graduated from the yale school of drama. She's married to a kohen brother. And what do the coen brothers love to do. More than make fun of a yokels. There's nothing about her holding fern at a remove when she's packing amazon boxes. That's fern packing amazon boxes. Even though it's france clearly packing boxes the scene where she goes on quite a bit about how she got more counter space in her van. E you play that wrong and that is a hollywood actor doing a ride along. That's fake but i mean there's something about are you just fall in love with firm. The way she smiles without opening her mouth There's such pain in it but there's joy now did i need fern to quote shakespeare at me. Nope did. I need the scene with her sister where she tells firm. That firm has always been strong in special and smart. Smells nice in this kind of puppies. I didn't need that either. Those moments felt like that was the film. Not trusting itself. Kind of putting on some training wheels So in the end. I think i was more taken by this amazing performance then by the movie itself. Interesting stephen i was taken by the amazing performance. And the film itself I think this is a wonderful piece of really subtle storytelling. It is so thoughtful. It is so respectful and careful and clever. You can tell that this movie. And it's makers spent time with its subjects and really got invested in their lives. This movie could have so easily tilted into mawkishness could so easily tilted into cynicism. It's so easily could've tilted into kind of capital. I issues based thundering and it never ever does. I mean it's funny. Glenn mentioned francis mcdormand's performance in three billboards outside ebbing missouri. The kind of purported to be about the real america kind of the real underbelly of america and it did so by throwing grotesques at us and this movie does the exact. It is a really human and lovely movie and its surrounds. Frances mcdormand and david strathern with nomads. With people who actually live this lifestyle and lets them tell their stories albeit fictionalised versions of their stories. And i just think that works beautifully. Well you can tell in spots when this movie is working with non-professional actors and you can kind of feel that but for the most part i just got totally lost in it. It is as glenn's had its unhurried. But i didn't find it slow at all. I loved this movie.
The Legend of Elden Kidd, America's Most Dedicated People Smuggler
"Was just another day. Another crossing for alvin kid and his smuggling partner. Tim burson so we had brought to people from the town of ukiah and put them in a motel in midland on the ten there. At that time you could go across the river. There was a both there. If you're a college kid you could take a boat and go in and go have a beer and restaurant and then come back. No problem passing back and forth. The journey hadn't been easy the night before elden and tim had met their clients. Eighteen in total mbookie. Yes mahyco they then guided them on a three hour hike to the rio grande rover once. They're they waited across undercover of in camped out until morning. Once across they ran their reliable decoy scheme utilizing to vans one. That looked like a smuggler's fan which acted as a decoy and another that appeared to be a legitimate tour van inside which their clients would nervously ride into their new lives. It been working flawlessly for over a year as the old saying goes. If it ain't broke don't fix it as usual. They didn't encounter any resistance. It was smooth sailing all the way to the motel outside midland. Odessa called the fern. It was big giant pool. And we'd been swimming and they were all showed up and had a new client close on. We're gonna make sure. They had plenty of food. They they're taking care of and lot of times. We buy them socks and shoes so they had new socks and shoes on so they want us to flag for anybody. Who's looking for signs of passing the people. The final step was transport their clients from the motel and midland to the nearby airport or with false identification. They would board a flight to some other. American frontier were their new lives would officially begin. There's something so satisfying about a simple plan. Well executed about knowing every motel vending machine or local fast food joint every highway exit sign knowing every single detail by heart. Elton was no longer changing it. Up for every run had gotten too risky and the tried and true methods. Were still getting the job done. But there's risk in repetition. Eldon and tim didn't know it yet. But the gnarled hands of destiny were closing around them. Yes this trip would be different than the others very different indeed because this one would be their last.
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
How the Wolves Change the Forest
"Literally get down on our hands and knees and starts slowly sifting through the leaf litter looking for bissett hair or a little chunk of bill. Tom gabel is tracking predator. In fact he's tracking pack of them. Oh it's very much like a crime scene investigation since twenty fifteen the university of minnesota conservation. Biologists has used gps collars to track thirty wolves inside voyageurs national park. Those callers lead gable and his team to kill sites and they're amid the leaf litter were bloodied bits of fern bone clues about how wolves the ecosystems they live and hunt and kill in. The long-term study is in a way. A quest to broaden a science story that goes back twenty five years for wildlife ecologists the story of the reintroduction of wolves to the greater yellowstone ecosystem on january twelfth. Nineteen ninety-five has become canonical. The story goes something like this. As the elk grew to fear the wolves they changed where and how they foraged that gave willows cottonwoods and aspens a better chance to grow near streams it also meant more riverside berries for foraging grizzly bears and lead to alterations in the flow of those streams. Sending water in new directions. Wolves out compete coyotes for access to pray so coyote populations plummeted which led to a rise in fox rabbit and ground nesting bird numbers and so on ecologists called this row of biological domino's a trophic cascade regard with your inclination. I think it's hard not to be like. Wow this is amazing right if that is true. That's really incredible. New findings cast some doubt on the idea that wolves primarily regulate the greater yellowstone ecosystem through fear and intimidation and regardless of the situation. They're very little. Research has been conducted on this question. In ecosystems that don't resemble the mountains and grasslands of yellowstone which brings us back to the boreal forests of northern minnesota. The ground that tom gabel and his team have been crawling over the last few years during the winter. Wolves work together to kill large prey. Like dear but gable found than in warmer ice free months wolves focus on smaller prey like newborn dear funds and especially beavers and. That's where things get really interesting for the ecosystem. Wolves by trading on dispersing beavers alter where wetlands are created. If a young beaver gets killed after leaving home it will never have a chance to build a new dam even if it had started construction before becoming a wolf lunch. The damn will remain unfinished. End fall into disrepair beavers are ecosystem engineers so when a wolf kills one it can have a big impact because they prevent beavers from converting a forest into a wetland and in that regard wolves are unconnected to all of the ecological processes that are associated with wetlands and beaver ponds. Ecologists have long assumed that predators can influence their ecosystems in two main ways one is through fear and intimidation like in the yellowstone story. The second is through direct. Killing the voyagers will offer up a third possibility. The park and the forest surrounding it have more than seven thousand beaver. Ponds gable estimates that wolves have a direct impact each year on around eighty eight of them. That's a mere one and a quarter percent affected so it's hard to argue that wolves responsible for reshaping the ecosystem in the broadest sense. But it's equally hard to deny that. They helped to maintain a diversity of habitats landscape.

Victoria Shaw had it all a PhD from Princeton a published author two beautiful children. It was perfect on paper. But as she describes on her website, we often make our biggest spiritual beliefs in response to extreme pressures and difficulties of Life The Tipping Point for me was when my children started to struggle Victoria and Barks On a path of healing peeling back the layers in order to be the mother of person.

Silvie Martin is the author of three novels in the Contemporary sweet romance genre and she's working on book four of her Coronado Island series a master's in English fluently in French. So we spent part of her childhood in Africa where her father was teaching Spanish. She has lived in London, Texas and now sunny California. Sylvie has seen the world but it's the people she loves right about most there is a story behind every person I meet she says on her website and those stories have inspired me fueling my imagination and shaping me as a writer. Hi Sylvie. Did I get it? Right? Hello. You got it. Right absolutely good. So we know each other or we we're connected because of your husband and I've seen his name a thousand times. But in my head I approached Bounce It Rich a movie. Is that correct? It's correct. Okay, and he writes romantic comedies, which is just the greatest. He's one of the the few males in Rome. Our groups on Facebook. It's mostly I think I think he might be the only male. It's like ninety-nine percent women and I mentioned in this Facebook group that were in that I have this podcast signs from the other side and he said you'll have to interview my beautiful wife, which is the cutest thing ever. And I just love that you and your husband are both writers in similar genres, but you weren't both writers when you met right? No, I was taking a Stamford creating writing classes and I met him he said he liked right and.
Top 10 Haunted Crime Scenes
"Starting off our list of haunted crime scenes is the Eden Brown estate on the Caribbean island of Nevis. There're couple versions of this story and they all take place before a wedding. Of course, they do essentially the groom and the best man they get into a fight they pull out their vessels and they kill each other. Oh but they're not the ghosts of the Brown. Estate that would be the bride who still roams the estate and a long white gown waiting for her wedding day. Of course, she is the. Are. They're always brides dressed in their wedding clothes just waiting for their wedding day at these places and it's always really sad because i. they're also always like crying or like they look very like shock they've always been jilted. Yeah. It's not fair. No I. Don't like while in eighteen, twenty, two, this bride Julia. Huggins was set to marry Walter Maynard, his best dude John Huggins was going to be the best man but all was not well of course, there wasn't everyone died. Wheeler Alina a fight was a bruin. So there's like multiple stories about what actually happened and since the story was largely spread by tourism, they all vary a little bit. I feel like the best things in the worst things are always spread by doors. One hundred percent we can account for a lot with tourism well, like I said, there's a few theories. The first is that the grew was having an affair and the best man found out that was his sister. So he was like I'm upset and then the groom was like you are Eliah I think that was it that was it, but there's also some mortgage bonds. Okay. The next one is that the best man like I said was the bride's brother and the groom discovered that they were hooking up with each other on the low, and obviously he went a little bananas about that Allah incest a lot incest. So S- big ill. Another theory we've got another one says that the bride's father now, that's the dad this time was tried for mistreating his sleeves and this was in the eighteen hundred. So you know that was real bad. That was a sharp left turn sharp left. The groom having an affair. Yeah. That's like the classic in the best man is being a good dude and killed them died hero. It's a pretty good wrong com movie actually I picked up I like that one while historians think the real story dates back to a historical rivalry between the maynard and the huggins families the plantation itself dates back to the Century and it was at that time a beautiful property decorated with international furnishings from Africa and China. But today it's in ruins. Really. Sad. But sad torres claim to hear whales of a crying bride enslaves. ooh, and Julia is sometimes spotted in her wedding gown only during the full moon I don't hate that this is in ruin. Now what's meant to be will be yeah don't go there. It's terrible place. Nine. At number nine this week is leap castle and love this one according to ancient legends. Leap Castle is built on an ancient Druid holy site. ooh while we don't know if the druids used the land for human sacrifice, we do know that once the castle was built it did witness hundreds of murders I feel like that's just like what castles do. Yeah. Any good castle worth. Its name seen offend learning the hundreds of murders. You can't be a castle. You know it's a qualification. The best part of this place is that it's named after a little earl leap off a nearby cliff by an ancient Irish abandoned chieftain. ooh. Yeah. He jumped as a sign of bravery to win clan leadership from his brother later, it was taken over by the bloody carols. I want to be friends with them because you definitely don't want to be their enemy. Yeah. You don't want to be an enemy of the bloody. Oh Carols No. Well, they were known for throwing Red Wedding s dinner parties and just straight up killing their guests like the saddest episode of Game Fern. So to picture that was all is affecting me R.I.P Robb stark. Talk. About number be over it. Well, this was way back in the fifteen hundreds. So the it is pretty game of thrones Ian. Yeah. So the carols, this is one of my favorite things they built an uber yet a what an yet. and. What would happen was victims would fall through a trap door into this. googly. It in the remains of one hundred fifty people were found during a nineteen twenties renovation. So I think we have three major ghosts that we want to chat about really quick. Hit me up. One of the ghosts is called the Red Lady. It's an carol hostage, the murdered her baby. Oh, I don't WanNa be a part of them anymore. This is when I got off the OH. Carol, Bandwagon. You're. Not. In. She's looking for her baby though was murdered. Oh, I know and then we have thaddeus. So Carol who is a priest killed buys brother in a power grab anybody named Thaddeus as okay in my book thought he is a great name does the last one that I found was called the murdered lady was she murdered? No. We. Think she was I wouldn't Wanna be called the murdered lady later in life she shows up and she's naked has all yeah. Has a red cloth over her face and she just screams twice at you and then leaves that would change you as a person I think like to which say I leave I leave the Milky Way Galaxy. If that happened to me I would walk like five hundred miles and then I'd walk five hundred more which I would be so far. That's terrifying to me. No. Thanks. So we don't love that will in the sixteen hundreds after all that crazy. Oh, Carol business it changed hands and it went to Jonathan Darby who fell in love with an old carol daughter. So now it was just all about love right romance. Well, he still haunts the castle right now people as looking for his loss golds, but I think that's pretty priority of him. The other reports of things happening are doorbells ring with no one their tools move around without being touched There's like sounds of furniture moving people screaming, and then a carpenter that was working on the property once just left and he was like I'm never coming back to work because he walked five hundred miles and then five hundred more leap castle everybody.

The price of rare plants
"Right. Now it's time to talk about rare plants and when this turned into a ranch, I wanted to be a reasoned argument but I hope that this will give you pause for thought about what's happening in the house blunt world right now, I guess I got really alarmed about plant prices. When applaud the I've been lusting after suddenly went up in price. As many of you know through the podcast I've been looking for a piece of Panteli sensation, a cultivar of tons of area. Correctly Justina As been moved to the dressier genus, the snake plant, I've been looking for. Peace or a plant of this particular offer longtime. Now, for some reason, while they're common in the US, they just aren't that common here in the UK and I haven't found a shop selling them I think couple of people found a plot shop in Poland selling them, but I still do not have one of these plants. So I. Put an Ebay search save out there. So that anytime anyone put one of these plants on Ebay. I. Would know a few months ago the last cutting that I had been watching the last pup that I've been watching when I think he has for about twenty five pounds and I missed out on time because I thought that's a bit expensive. Anyway another pop came up from the same seller I think very recently about two or three weeks ago. I was Kinda getting excited because the price was still quite low are and all watching the countdown and the price was still about ten pounds and I thought. The chance here? How much did it go for? It went for it went for about eighty seven pounds. For a tiny stick of a snake blunt. Thanks to the listeners by the way who offered to send me a piece of their bench Elson session from the US very kind of you. But I don't think it's a good idea given plant health and spread of diseases to be importing individual plants from the US plus. Don't think it's worth it for the air. BYLES. Of course, there are other house plants that are going for much much more. The headline in The New York Post recently was some sucker in New Zealand just spent five thousand dollars on a house plant. There was a variegated rafic for a test drive perma with variation, the basically split relief in half between the regular caller and sort of golden yellow. and. That plot went for eight thousand, one hundred fifty New Zealand dollars on the site trade me nuts about five thousand. Dollars in other words, a lot of money and there is a track record for plants on this trade me site going for a lot. There was a Hoya I think it was a Hoya compactor with the reverse fair Gatien the way for six and a half thousand New Zealand dollars. A before POPs a couple of months before I'm, and of course, we all know about the variegated monster at unsown. With those little holy leaves marked with cream the have also gone for some really interested. High prices recently, this has been building for a while. Now, this trend towards rare or Unicorn House Plaza cost a lot of money but I think that lockdown has exacerbated this desire for plants as lots of people who want to. Live and up their Home Office of got into the House plant thing during lockdown adjust desperate for these very, very rare loans. And I think we've really got to take the long view about this in that planck. Crazies are really nothing you. My first thought is back to the fern craze in the mid eighteen hundreds I wasn't there I'm not quite that old over my children would probably beg to differ. So in the mid eighteen hundreds around the world. There was a firm fever that really took of people and lots of women in particular were going out and bought an ising and looking for funds in the wild and buying. Funds from nursery such as the famous and now defunct lodges of London with the huge glasshouses, and these were really desirable things to own back. Then the talent teradata mania was coined by Sir Charles Kingsley and he wrote your daughter's perhaps I've been seized with the prevailing Tareyton mania and are collecting bind funds with wards cases where into keep them for it's you have to pay and wrangling over unpronounceable names of species which seemed to be different in each new book that they buy till the territory mania seems to you somewhat of a ball. So that might be familiar. Scenario of of wrangling over the names and buying the special equipment, the wards cases, which is just the original server terrariums plots in. So that is an illustration of the fact, this is not a new a new thing. Plunk raises a bit around forever I mean even Coleus those cheapest chips plants that you can buy very very easily are certainly not subject to a premium. These days were at one point something, very new, exciting and expensive. If you check out Dr Catherine, Horwitz Book Potted Histories, you'll find out that a dozen new coleus hybrids sold at auction by the RHS's one, hundred, sixty, eight when for three, hundred, ninety pounds. How much three hundred ninety pounds is worth today about thirty thousand pounds so As I say it's not new and equally even further back in history chilly fever and sixteen thirties same time citrus trees also massive status symbol mainly because you needed an orangerie to keep them in. So. Wild prices for applauds are nothing new

You WanNa survive just so your child at least remembers you can that? Be On that path. Yeah Wow. Yeah Love Yeah. Yeah, it's a high motivator, right and. It put me on this. That's when Western medicine didn't have anymore answers for me. I had exhausted their black bag and they just kinda. You know shuffled me out the back doors and you know we're sorry. We don't have anything for you, they. They gave me an experimental treatment that actually made things worse. It's named me for a little bit longer, but it made things worse now. My system has crashed twice and now I have my bur Myalgia, and now I have a brain damage and I chronic fatigue syndrome and I still have hepatitis. C.. And, so it was one of those where okay there's nothing left like my husband Gary, who went into the outback as an? Here quadriplegic. Desperate to find answers to survive for the for the your kids and that's is covered. His stories incredible, too, so he was, he had an mess for years was a quadriplegic went into the outback by basically will not base in the wheelchair, right and then. Russia walking to the plane bluntly. Yeah, he he had had had had i. mean he was this? You know physicist. He was A. Very interesting guy inventor very much a scientist straight, and he had also exhausted. What Western medicine have available for him with MS and he had been a quadriplegic for seven years, and he heard that the aboriginal the remote ones in the outback had amazing healing abilities, and so we describe it in the book secrets of original healing how he was able.
Clucking Over the Cost of Chicken? Top Poultry Producers Charged with Price Fixing
"Early this month the US Justice Department indicted four of the top poultry industry executives on price-fixing Charges Pilgrim's pride. CEO Jason, pen and Claxton Poultry Farms President Michel. Freeze were charged with conspiring to fix prices on chickens sold to restaurants and grocery stores from twenty twelve to two thousand, seventeen to other executives, one from each company were also indicted. Indicted the charges come as part of an ongoing anti-trust investigation into the highly consolidated poultry business, The Wall Street Journal reported now.

Setting the Scene: Leigh Leigh
"Lays double barrelled name was a happy accident she was born. Lee Rene Me's on July twenty four nineteen seventy five to parents Robin and rub it. This was a tumultuous marriage that only persisted due to their mutual love of their daughter but ultimately ended in divorce when lay was seven years old after her birth parents separated lays mother entered into a defector relationship with a man whose surname was lay. The couple had a daughter in nineteen ninety. Three whom they named Jesse lay wanted to share her youngest sister's surname and love the fact that it would give her a duplicate name. She liked her unique name so much. She kept it after. Her mother ended that relationship rubbing was close to her oldest daughter and took lay aged ten on a two-month holiday to Sri Lanka to experience of familial heritage by Nineteen Ninety. Six Robin and her two daughters had moved to a house on. Fullerton straight in Fund Bay a working class suburb in the Hunter region of New South Wales. Just south of firm Bay was Stockton. Technically suburb of the city of Newcastle. It lay across the harbour mouth of the Hunter River. Meaning anyone. Wanting to get there from Newcastle would aid the half the take a five minute ferry ride or a half hour drive. It's not a solution from the city. Gave stopped and more of a provincial atmosphere within Sheila and close knit community. The township was characterized by low incomes and high unemployment. It was while living in Fern Bay. Robin met local man. Brad Ximan who became lay and Jesse's stepfather lay was a popular handout. Going go into made friends. Easily at both Stockton Primary School and light up at Newcastle High. By Age Fourteen. She had aspirations to become a veterinarian and was well behaved at school but exhibited rebellious straight with her mom and Stepdad in these moments. It was clear she had inherited her mother's strength of character and biological father's single minded determination nevertheless her mother and grandmother regarded Lee as a typical teenager. Who cared deeply for her family. It was a warm spring evening on Friday November. Three nine hundred ninety nine and delay was excited. She was going to her first light. Not Party to celebrate the sixteenth birthday of one of the local boys Jason Robinson. More than fifty us would bain attendance. Mostly he attends students from Newcastle High. But some young goes had received an invitation to Lee was one of them even though she was only fourteen years old Indian year. I this made her feel important and mature. As only a handful of girls her age had been invited. The party was being held at the old north. Stockton Surf Club a popular venue. For such events the one storey red brick building was positioned on a large patch of open lawn with its re facing the Stockton Waterfront. A short walk away by fillets. Mother and stepfather were apprehensive. As the invitation said the Potty was an all night affair from seven pm until dawn it also stipulated. Bring your own. Which suggested that would be alcohol. Presen- that lay had gained persuasive and convinced them that the not could be viewed as a test if she behaved herself and was ready to be picked up at the Surf Club at exactly eleven. Am She would be given more freedom to attend other parties and social events? If she wasn't waiting at the allotted time she would be granted and banned from going to the upcoming dance at Newcastle High. Which late desperately wanted to attend? There wasn't a lot to do. F- attains in the area as the disguised used to be held at the Masonic Cole had come to an end and the local movie house shut down. There were the occasional gatherings at the Surf Club when a fraud not without listened to the local band practice while drinking Biro Cask. One acquired by an older sibling or friend.

"fern" Discussed on Signs From The Other Side with Fern Ronay
"I'm like go back and look at. How many people you like you've made happy. Made it impact it and they enjoy you like trying to remember. That's what the focus on but yeah it's it's so nice to have. That cheers me up even when I don't particularly need cheering up. Sometimes I still look at those because helps you know those kind of thing where people will say like. Oh you know kind of like how you just said like if someone really wants to take their time to like put someone down that they don't even know they're probably going through something right now. Though I had one like particularly rough comment come in the other day and I'm like well you know. She must be self quarantined by herself. And my changes going through a hard time right now. Maybe she doesn't have a lot of people to talk to and she's taking it out on me. I wrote back and I was like whatever it is going through right now. I hope that you get through it. Okay thinking about you you know. It's not me trying to be like flipping are rude but honestly probably that person's going through something and they need to lash out at someone and I'm just you know kind of an anonymous person on the Internet. Like why take it out on me exactly so I hope you get through it. Okay thinking about you good and it's interesting also. I feel like with book reviews with comments. I feel like the I should be even like the negative comments shouldn't make me feel so bad and the positive comments feel so good like I should be confident enough. That neither affects me. But then I'm like no. I like getting getting good reviews. I think you're like I. I don't want to not feel that like lift when someone tells me. I did good work like I love that. So yeah but I know answers that like you shouldn't be affected by either but unlike now I I wanna be affected by the things but I guess also being affected by the bad things. But I think I've learned to see it in a way that it helps to not you know affect me like that person. She's she's going through something that has nothing to do with you. And she went out on someone who she you know. It'll make her feel better to do that. And it actually doesn't. I'm someone who I mean. I review books. I've been reading books for almost eleven years at this point and like sure there's Times where I repeat a book that I didn't enjoy but I even with my makeup review. There's obviously there's so much makeup that I try out. That doesn't work for me but it doesn't mean that I have to. You know I see some reviews calling authors like just the worst names yes this area at all. It's like if you don't like the book that's fine but there's probably someone out there who's going to like it and the same thing with makeup like even foundation work for me. I can say why it doesn't work for me but just so that didn't work for me. It's probably GonNa work for someone else. So there's no reason to like get super negative or call brands like terrible or cancel culture and all I when it comes to individuals on the Internet. I've just I've never been able to to bring that type of negativity in someone's life like the other day. Someone took time out to tweet me on twitter publicly. Tweet me on twitter to say that. I've really helped her out through a lot of times. But now because I'm on tick tock dancing like a teenager like she just can't handle me associate has to unsubscribe and I was like for you like publicly. Shamed me because I'm doing something that doesn't impact your life at all like me. Being on social media literally has no bearing on. Your life has no impact on your life but to take the time to like publicly. Put that out there like what? What's wrong with you? You felt I really WanNa bring negativity to someone's life today. What can I do exact number do that? I can't even think like that directly next. He doesn't have to watch your tax return durable by the way but she and you're so funny like we just so lovable but that she something's going on with her that that affects her problem. Not Your Whereabouts Tick Tock and everyone to follow you there. As well I got so many tweets from people after that you know then I felt bad about but I'm like you're the one who started it like you're the one that put this tweet out for people were responding back in like like in support of me and and you know. I think a big thing my talk so different from anything that I do. It's not focused on books. It's not really focused on beauty and it's just like dancing are funny voice overs and things like that but it's making people laugh right now. That's what I'm trying to bring because there's not a lot of reasons to like smile at this moment and a lot of people are very sad or scared or just feeling really shaky about things if I can do. A fifteen second voiceover and make someone laugh. Yeah that's what I WANNA do right now. I just make people smile and try to get through this day by day. So huge offence to that your day is probably looking really really bad. Yeah that's a shame. And make up makes you feel good like lifts. It gives you a new lease on life and highlighter and watching talks. Make Mueller I know you're you're bringing joy to people and like keep doing it because you're so good at it. You're so lovable. And Yeah I can't thank you enough for sharing your stories and I know millions so proud. And she's she's watching Gil. Thank it's true and people can just Google Samantha margin. You can find you. You probably already do but if you don't wear. Can everyone find you and get some positive vibes? Yeah Somebody Youtube Channel is just to Samantha March and my instagram is March beauty. Word as in the written word my tic TAC and Smith March EXO and I'm also pretty active on twitter which is vice march. So I'm not one of those people that house one handle for everything. I wouldn't think march is like a really popular last name but apparently it is. Because I can't I can't Samantha. March like anywhere at thirty taken so I have like a bunch of different user names to try. And how it can be a bummer. But but yeah I I mean I'm I'm just pretty much. I'm just pretty much everywhere. Nice thank you for being everywhere we appreciate do on. This was so much fun. How Much Fun. This is awesome. I feel better already. Thank you could. Yeah thank you. Thank you so much for listening to science from the other side. You can find me firm Rene on all social media at Fern Roni R. O. N. A. Y. A. Love hearing from you and I love hearing your stories of signs and if you would like to hear more episodes of this show please be sure to subscribe in Apple podcasts.

Exploring The Canopy With 'TreeTop Barbie'
"Hey everybody matty Safai. Here was shortwave reporter. Emily Kwong today. We thought you might appreciate a little joy in your life especially now that's right here on short wave we want to bring you up. Does it explain what's happening with the corona virus but also episodes that feature other interesting science like this one from the very first week of shortwave. It's probably one of my favorites. Oh yeah mine too. It's got rain. Forests SLINGSHOTS A DECADE-LONG CONFLICT WITH BIG Barbie bad gets rope burn. Let's not love the rope? Burn Kwong it's clearly the roburt. These are the sacrifices you make manny right onto the show enjoy. You're listening to shortwave from. Npr One day this past summer I got to visit a rainforest. Okay that's licorice fern. That is the scientific name. Is Paula podium vulgarity? Ecologist NENAD CARNEY. This is called sledge. This is called Club Moss. It's actually very primitive Plant leaning has been studying in exploring ecosystems like this for thirty five years. Okay so that is called Bikram. That's another species of Moss. I like to call it pledging moss. Just because it's so soft and so please so much like a little pillow. Here's Flynn's this is recommend trim. There's like three four different species of MOSS RIGHT THERE. Couple other things about this rainforest. You're probably thinking rainforests so tropics now. We were in the Pacific Northwest Olympic National Forest in Washington state and it's called a temperate rainforest A. Rainforest because we get it's characterized by having a lot of rainfall there about one hundred twenty inches a brain a year. The other thing about this trip to the forest. Is that all these plants so see how soft these mosses are yes. Don't you just WanNa sleep on them? Yeah all of new weenies. Decades-long work. Okay I'M GONNA come up side by side with you. All of it is about wow sixty feet off the ground for many. This is awesome awesome. This is called the canopy pretty much everything above the forest floor all the way up to the tops of the trees. Come up with me now. Little Rope canopy. Here is a dizzying thicket of bright green leaves and Mosses and ferns all bathed in sunlight. And we knew very little about it because the canopy is literally called the last biotic frontier. It's been so poorly studied. It really aren't very many people who studied the canopy. Feel like when you say. The last biotic frontier should look off into the distance. Ready to the last biotic frontier so today on the show pioneering scientists Malini non Carney on the canopy plus a little later on in the episode weenies decades. Long fight to get more women into science. And how she found unlikely ally in Barbie. Yeah I thought it was weird too. It's not that we're the sticker up and you're listening to shortwave from NPR. Alright so let's back up down back on the ground in Olympic national forest. Malini told me that in the grand scheme of things canopy sciences. Actually PRETTY NEW. People have been studying forest for centuries but it's only been in the last twenty twenty five thirty years that people have actually climbed up into the forest canopy to understand the environment up in the tree tops. One of the hurdles for scientists was literally just figuring out how to get up to the tops of the trees so noelene a few friends figured out a way to adapt some mountain climbing techniques to get up into the canopy and that means shooting ropes into the trees. So I invented this thing called the master caster which is metal rod and we welded it so it has this little hole here for the line. Basically this master caster thing is part fishing. Rod Part slingshot. This looks like a garage sale. A fourteen year old boy's dream could both and and so with a fishing weight loaded into the slingshot. So I'm thinking right up there. Malini cast masterfully. You we set the ropes now on your weight on this got harnessed in step down and then started the long hard process of inching up the road. You're going to go into a crouch and lift your legs up. That's kind of like a caterpillar and then San exactly you. Well you know. I've got to kind of over. The course of her career researching canopies in the Pacific northwest as well as in the forest of Costa Rica. Malini has documented all kinds of things about the canopy sixty feet up this giant maple tree. She shows me one of the cooler ones. Just looking at the underside of these mosses like. There's this canopy soil Allowing Dig Samat over here. Malini peels back a thick fistful of Moss from the branch on the tree. Instead of bark we're looking at tightly packed bed of Brown dirt. I mean that has actual soil that is basically composed of the dead and decomposing. Moss's that live up here and there are like earthworms that live up. Here are a big round up exactly. It's called into canopy soil. Wow look at that. And it's a weird you know you hear smelling the soil smell. But you're you know you're up sixty feet above the forest floor. So it's it's this sort of whole world that the canopy creates they're living plants or mosses there ferns their soil and it's all kind of invertebrates that live here birds that forage for these invertebrates that live in the canopy soil. So it's like this microcosm this mini co system. That's going on kind of independent of the forest floor. But at the same time interacting the forest as a whole of course today canopies all over the world face threats from climate change from logging fire deforestation and a lot of work. Now is about trying to figure out what would happen. If we lost such a complex interconnected ecosystem. I think it's important for canopies to be as intact as possible. Because they do foster so much diversity that you can get seventy species of mosses on a single tree and each of those mosses sort of living life with its insects and invertebrates and supporting birds. And so it's just part of this sort of whole cycle of what makes a primary important. Here's another thing leany discovered when she was first getting started in canopy research. There were very few women. Scientists doing this kind of work and so she set out to change that this was. This was just a fabulous day. That happened in my lab forest. Canopy lab undergraduates worked there. My graduate students would work me and we were just kicking around by these. Look how could we make the forest canopy more meaningful to mattress other scientists but to regular people like how about young girls? They need encouragement. And somebody said. Well what about Barbie aright pause Barbie time because she was busy enough helping to basically create an entirely new field of scientific study in the early two? Thousands deleted decided. You know in her free time she would try to create market and get into the hands of little girls and boys everywhere treetop Barbie. What took iconic doll which is so symbolic of what young girls aspired to. What if we just put this shell around her? Which is a canopy biologist? So called Mattel the company that owns Barbie and then when I propose this idea they said no no no. We're not interested that has no meaning to us We make our own barbies. You know you can't do this. Forget it forget it. So that's when we said well. Why don't we just do it ourselves? And if Mattel's not going to take a couple of trips to goodwill later to get some recycled barbies with the Angela's making our top barbies. And I started bringing campy Barbie along with me and you know talking to my fellow scientists and saying look guys we not only have to do our good science we need to start encouraging people from outside science and and this is one way that we might do it trees are wonderful arenas for discovery this is Malini is two thousand nine tedtalk which by the way is a hugely nerve wracking thing for scientists. And you're hooked up to this hands-free Britney Spears Mike to give a talk. That will basically be your top. Google hit for life to stand on stage. Showing off a little plastic treetop Barbie. Should I really be spending time with this? Are PEOPLE GOING TO THINK? It's weird that me as a scientist and me as a woman scientist is a brown woman. Scientist is spending her time doing this. they're sort of risk. That goes along with that but I felt that the potential good that could come out of it of providing a real role model for a little girl. Who doesn't even know that that the canopy exists to study. You know like when I was a kid and so if that can happen then I think it's worth the risk what we do my students in my lab and is we buy barbies from goodwill and value village. We dress her enclosed that have been made by seamstresses and we send her out with a canopy handbook. And my feeling is thank you that we've taken this pop icon and we have just tweaked her a little bit to become ambassador who can carry the message that being a woman scientist studying treetops is actually a really great

Sowalong: Growing Ferns from Spores
"I'll be covering the so along in various ways in the coming weeks but this first episode is answering demand that many of you have heard which is for information on propagating funds and this isn't so much of so long as a spore along because as we'll be finding out from an expert. Peter Blake growing new baby. Funds isn't quite the same as sowing seeds of other plants. If you're wondering why on earth you'd ever bother with growing houseplants from C. Because hey it's easy enough to walk into your nearest Garden Centre or Plant. Btk and pick up full-size plants Let me just explain I? It's cheap and if you're the kind of person who doesn't have a lot of extra income to splash out on buying plots then you can pick up a range of house. Plants CPAC is for a few pounds or dollars or whatever your local currency may be and you can get from that packet a large number of plants which then you could sell give to friends and family or just keep to turn your home into a tangle jungle so it's a cheap way of getting lots of lovely plants it also really gives you fantastic insight into how those plots grow plus rather than buying a plant in a nursery. That's been called within an inch of its life in the APP sleet computer controlled perfect environment. You'll be bringing up a plant in your own home which will be adapted to your conditions. That said there are some drawbacks. It does take up a fair bit of room. You may need a few bits of equipment and you'll need a specially formulated potting. Mix Feed your seeds to go into. We'll be looking at there's aspects of the so long in upcoming episodes but as I say to get in touch. Tell me how your plants growing on the you've sewn in previous oh lungs and what else. You'd like to know because there's still plenty of time to contribute. I spoke to Peter Blake who has many of experience with Ferns to find out how it's done. Here's Peter to introduce himself pharmafirm enthusiast. Who's been growing fans for about fifteen years now? Both hardy ferns in the And tender tropical ferns in glasshouses. I've been in the British territory Logical Society. Which is the basically the fern society for the UK For that length of time and I've had a great deal of help and support through then And also have had a lot of sports from them because they operate a spaw exchange system at the beginning of each year. I guess this is kind of Botany Wanna one. But why are we propagating funds from spores and not from seeds? Can you just explain? Explain that to us. Because not everyone's going to know the the reproductive processes of the Fund particularly well pearn saw unusual and they'll basically quite primitive plants along with a number of other spore producing plants like mosses but they all vascular plants so they're a bit more advanced to the mosses but what they do is they produce a spool which is very small and light and can travel a long way. The Fun self that we're used to seeing in the Gulf and or an apart- he's actually a plan that has no gender. It's not the male no female and dispositive producers Equally male and female. But those little spores if they learned in the right place will cause a second plant to grow which scientifically is called a domestic fights or a pro selous and that little plant which most of people have not ever recognized because they're so small actually is a sexual plant and it has both male and female sex organs. The male sex organs are called the answer India and the female sex organs are cold. They ought to go near an effect effectively. The anterior produced little swimming things like sperm and they travel through a film of Water Which is why the profile. I need I'm to grow And they traveled through that film of water to the goon. Yeah where they will search allies an egg in in that place and Once the eggs fertilized begin to divide and we'll grow into a new phone which will look like once used to seeing so the sexual pulse of life cycle is by faith. Life Cycle is the domestic flights and the SX. You'll part the part that produces the spoils is cool. So let me. It sounds complicated. It's a system that's worked very well for Ferns for the last three hundred and fifty million years so it it certainly ineffective system indeed and it's something that is new to many of us who've perhaps grown plants from seed. The procedure is a little bit different. How do we know? First of all that a firm is ready to be harvested for spores. Firm can carry spools in a number of ways. It's always on a front. Which is what we call leaf. Basically we call them friends Unusually for particularly for the funds that we see as natives in the UK Those fronts look very much all the same whether they carry spores or not And so if you turn the front over on just playing green on the back they probably don't go to any sports if you turn the from Dover and look at the back of an east coverage and little brown spots then those what's cool soreye and those are the little collections that actually contain the spores. Some funds will get a completely separate type of front looks different from the rest of the of the plant to carry those balls in Sarai these little collections and ones that do things like Royal Sun which you sometimes see growing next to water middle. Have a big plume in the middle Covered in Soreye. And you can sit because as a golden brown coal aware of the rest of the plant is green. But generally for most funds that we come across commonly the Sore I carrying this buzzer on the back of the front. If they're very young Soraya not ripe yet they will appear white or Pale Green when they're just coming to the right sorts of ripeness to collect them they turn the sorts of time. Color generally wind up going over and released that Spos- they've gone. They don't Brown. What actually happens in that Source is the source contain lots of little containers which could spur NGO which actually contain the spores and those Speranza when they're ripe. If the winds dries little bits will burst open. And actually fire the spoils out so if you take a Franz where you're beginning to see the Tan colored Soraya on the back and you put on a piece of white paper in a warm dry place like the iron covered or in the dining room table or something like that whether or not drafts. If you need to overnight in the morning if you lift front off you will find that there was a person of Sarai on the paper where the sprint. You have phya down the schools. And they've actually hit the paper and stuck to it so you can get the very nice sorts of shadow picture of the front just may down to the poor scientists released.
"fern" Discussed on Signs From The Other Side with Fern Ronay
"I onto the idea but I'm like the Malla helps me congressional. Yes well it's funny that you say that because somebody I a friend who's a business person had posted a question on Lincoln and he said Where do you come up with your best thought? And I said during meditation like where am I? Call my best ideas during meditation. So when you do that. Here's my suggestion for you. Sometimes like if I'm in that kind of mood I meditate with my journal next to me and if I haven't okay I I turned to the Journal. I write down the thought and then I go back because sometimes you're just in sometimes you're just in a place where it's just not gonna pass and maybe that's a good thing. I don't know but you know maybe you need to have that thought at that moment. You know but you have to like you have it. You write it down and then you've got to move on and go back to it later. You can go back to that story idea later or that email you have to write later. Just write it down and move on so I always think of win meditating and I have those thoughts. The thought comes into my head. I put the saw in a balloon. And then they let the balloon go visualization. Yeah so check gives you a visual like I'm thinking about that email to right. Oh It's a nice red balloon on a string I let the balloon go up into the air and now it's gone and now I have a mind. Yes I love to if I stopped doing them all will not count Ernst. I have to remember that this is my practice in if I if I do it that way. It's not wrong if I stop and write a note down. It's not like messing up the Malo like I have to start from the beginning or something I can just keep going right. Yeah I think that perfection stops a lot of us from doing things that would be really helpful for us like something like meditation like people are like well. I can't stop having thoughts so I'm just not GonNa do meditation well better to keep the notebook neck. See right down the thought and then go back to your meditation then not to meditate it all exactly. Yes and I struggled with that myself. You know the idea of perfection and if we can't get it perfect why bother doing it in the first place right? Oh let's check out so I went to this podcast movement and we were chatting about some of the things that I and you're thinking about starting a podcast and I think you would be wonderful and now talking to you I can tell you would be fantastic and I can't wait to listen to your podcast. You're going to do it. So what would if you could explain to listeners? What it would be about. I just want to make. Everyone feel like they're not alone. I mean that. Is You know the basic concept like you are not alone all of those thoughts that you have somebody else's having those thoughts to men a really great that I love is that you've survived one hundred percent of your heart estates and it's true like you may have had a really bad days but you've survived them. Yeah and you're going to survive this on and you're going to survive the next one and we can still even though we have may have anxiety or may have you know maybe we have a hard life. Maybe we have a sick parent or a sick child. Or you know. There's so many things that can happen in our lives. Lose your job. You know. That doesn't mean it's the end of things right. You know we can be successful. We can still have dreams. We can still accomplish goals even though we have those difficulties. So yeah yeah so so. That's just what I WANNA share with people who didn't want to share that with people and you know you'll be great at it and I think you have. People are always talking about the tips and tricks that people want people want to listen. People want to consume content. That helps them and coming from your perspective. I think you have the tools to help people thank you thank you yeah. I think that Part of what had stopped me for a while. I've wanted to do this and part of what's taught me as I felt like well. I'm not a professional like I don't have a degree in anything that pertains to this like my degrees in communications and in education. I don't you know like I don't have you know a psychology degree so therefore I can't share you know and that's just you know like a limiting belief that I have you know given to myself because I do have a lot of things share. I have a lot of life experience to share. And and that is what resonates people got a degree and I have seen. I have to catch myself with certain limiting beliefs. I'll say who am. I had this podcast signs from the other side. I'm not a medium but not being a medium not being a psychic medium is exactly the strength of this community. I talked to that right because I'm not a psychic and this is all people who are not psychics to share their stories and show that we can all talk to them exactly. We all have signs. Yes so I had been I had been talking to you a little bit about numbers Do you do you believe in number. Nyas in on seven seven seven. Oh my goodness aren't going for us for quite some time. I've seen you know like numbers and but recently it's been in ten everyday. I look at the clock and it's eleven eleven or it's one eleven every single day. Yeah it's it's crazy and I've just been so hard core like the past like two weeks maybe so like I just. I don't know I don't know what it is but it's some even the ones are supposed to be angel numbers so that represents the angels are are with you at eleven eleven or one eleven and I'll think what am I thinking about at eleven. Eleven or one eleven. It's either something I it's a good thought and I had to keep going with that or it's a thought that is a limiting belief or something. I have to work on so I always look at the clock. It's that time I'll say the angels trying to teach me something that's a good sign now. Yeah so I'm I try to look and see like what am I doing right now? Doing whatever it is. I love it interesting that it's been so recently recently it has been just a crazy amount every time. I look at the clock. It's it's eleven eleven. It's one eleven. It's forty four you know. It's maybe they're trying to tell you. Starts podcast yeah? I know you're doing cycle for survival. I am doing I do it every year. This is my I think my sixth or seventh year doing it and It's just such a great cause it to raise money for memorial.

The 123s of Window Boxes
"Going to start out with a plant Rama. One two three the first the second and third things that you should know or do if you want to start a new garden project or a practice and today. That project is window boxes. I want to put window boxes on the front of my house. Ellen what is your number one thing I need to know. The first thing you need to think about is what floor. Are you going to put them on and that relates directly to how those window boxes are going to be attached because if you are hanging them from her second or third floor window boy do you need to be sure those are solidly fixed in place? You do not WanNa conch somebody on the head with a window box that is poorly attached. And since my background is is from. New York City. Where oftentimes these window boxes and containers were many floors above the sidewalk? This is something you really need to think about. If you're if you're on a first floor window probably going to be walking underneath those window boxes and you can use a more casual hanger that may fit over the sill but if you are planting your window boxes on a higher floor you need to wire those in place. So that even the strongest wind or scampering squirrel is not going to knock it loose so I say I know that's not fun. It's not fun like choosing great plants but it's essential. You got to do that. I my number one was noticing what direction the front of your house face. That's a great one. I didn't even think of that. Because if it's facing north you're going to need to use shade loving plants now. Nothing wrong with that. Of course there's some great Begonias ferns and everything. But if your expectation is you are going to have window boxes with cascading geraniums like you see all over Europe and the friend of your house in deep shade. You might need to either rethink the plan for window boxes in the front of your house or changed the expectations that you have and Ellen your point about the securely fastening them made me also think about an alternate number one which is how am I gonNA water these boxes yes now. That was my number three. Oh well then we'll get to that. So what's your number two? My number two was about soil and drainage because lots of times you by the window boxes and they may not have drainage holes in the bottom and if they don't you need to get out your handy dandy electric drill and I would put one inch hole six inches on center for the length of your window box. So that you get good drainage in there and then I would put a lightweight. Potting mix do not fill those window boxes with soil from your garden. You want them to be lighter weight and you want them to drain quickly. So I say get those drainage do like how. I'm like putting two into one because I'm cheating so my number two is making sure you have adequate drainage and a good lightweight soil that is also going to drink quickly. That was my number three that same wavelength. What was your number? Two pretty amazing number two is to measure where you want them and decide what size and types of boxes you're going to install. Are you going to have wooden boxes? That have plastic inserts. Or are you going to? Ha- want them removable. Or are you going to just have the plastic boxes that you buy at the store and you're going to put them on brackets of some sort So that was I was going for style of boxes in number two and then I was going to go back to function in number three which was the drain the tools and the soil which I was also sneaking to well. You know it's interesting. You mentioned style because what the front of Your House looks like is probably going to influence the style of window box that you choose and where you live is also going to determine the style of window box because if you live someplace where you can have. That Window. Box planted year round. You might go for something more substantial. That's going to be longer lived like would because you could have. You have a rotating display you know you could have ornamental cabbages and cycling's in Viola in the wintertime depending on where you live or you might if you live someplace really really cold. Just fill those window boxes with an interesting arrangement of of bows and berries in the winter. So I didn't even think about that but that's a really good thing to consider the color the style the material that the box is made out of in number three ellen which was the holes and the fresh potting soil. And I I I also snuck. I really cheated. I stuck a third thing and that was to always. Every year mix a tablespoon of inorganic granular fertilizer. Such as plant tone With a tablespoon of a time release synthetic fertilizer. Azmacort is probably the most common one available if you do that every year with fresh potting soil. Your plants are going to grow gangbusters all summer long without any additional fertilization need it. Now I have to ask a tablespoon. That's for a window box. That's how big twenty four inches. Maybe thirty anywhere from twenty four to thirty inches cat would be good. If you have a really huge long window box underneath a picture window you probably want to do two three times that amount. Okay all right. Well my number three again. I'm cheating was to plant and water now. The planting is the fun part right. That's the best part and don't be afraid to really fill those window boxes up and make them look gorgeous. They're there to give you pleasure and you also want to make sure that you choose plants that live well together you're not gonNA put a succulent next to affirm that needs constant soil moisture so choose your plants wisely and think about how you're going to water them if they're on the ground floor you go round with your host of your watering can. But if they're on the second or the third floor you might want to consider drip irrigation and I. I know that I'm a big fan of drip irrigation. And it's not something that likes quite as much but for me doing it for clients it was really essential because I couldn't I couldn't trust them to water when things needed to be water. That's why they had me there. But a simple simple drip set up on your window boxes really takes away that responsibility and makes it much easier for you to do the other things for you to dead head for you to fertilize for you to groom your plant. It just takes that chore. Off of the schedule Ellen. I'm all for drip irrigation. I just don't if I had a magic wand and have it instantly installed yeah containers. I'd do it in a second. It's just a little bit too lazy to research and make the opposite of lazy seal. I'm just going to say that right now but we all have our priorities. Yeah so one. Two three window boxes a lot of fun a few simple decisions to make but as Ellen said it's all about your own pleasure
Easy Annuals to Start from Seed
"It is the time of year ellen when I think everybody should be thinking about what am I going to plant in the growing season right and am I going going to purchase plants or am I starting this from seat. Starting something from seed is a way for you to get all kinds of plants looks of plants for less money right. Yes it is. It's a great way to have of really full abundant colorful garden for very little money. But I think there's something even more important about successfully starting from seed. I remember how I felt the first time I saw a plant in my garden that I had started from seed and I swear there's there's nothing like it. I know that sounds Corny as all. Get out but it is absolutely true when you nurture something from seed to plant the feeling Ling of satisfaction is enormous. And I think everybody should get to experience that in their lifetime I agree and the other thing is watching that process. Assess watching the little zied link. Come up whether it's in a pod indoors or outside in the garden one of the most life affirming coming experiences that we can have and we need more life affirming experiences in our lives. All of us we certainly do so. Let's let's tackle the easiest annuals to grow from seed let's start out with annual that you can probably AP successful with if you put the seeds right in the ground because there are some that you may want to start indoors or in pots or even flats outside outside just a little better control but there are some plants that they really do well sewing them right in the ground and Dan. Let's start out with those and I would like to start out with California poppies now. That's something I love and I have never grown from seed. Because because I'm kind of intimidated by the fact that the seeds are so tiny so I'd love to hear how you handle that well and I think you should grow them from seed because the pedal title Sir Edible Ellen. How can you pass this up? I am going to order me some California poppy seeds right away. And what you do. They're the easiest things in the world to grow from seed is in cool weather and in fact you can even so the seeds now in February as soon as you have them in cool weather you take the seeds and you sprinkle them out where you want them to grow and you can just sprinkle them right over the surface of the soil. They need to be on the surface of the soil. These are seeds that germinate best when they have light they also so like places with good drainage so gravelly areas. Oh that's what I was Gonna ask you because you said on top of the soil now. My whole front garden is got a gravel. Mulch can I just sprinkle them on the ground and let them. Oh yes and kill them on the gravel and then a little later in the spring once on smartvestor starts falling and the temperatures warm. A little bit you will see very tiny fern like seedlings of California poppies coming up and the great thing about California poppies is when they're happy from now on they will feed themselves. Once you have them you will have them in those locations and maybe some others every year without you ever sewing Wing another seat. So that's a great thing about California poppies. I love that idea. And of course the fact that they're edible means that I actually can plant them in my garbage so thank you very much. Co another annual that you can plant directly in the garden And that's also edible surprise. Surprise is Nester Shem and I love love For so many reasons they're gorgeous. Both the leaves and the flowers are edible. And you and I made a very tasty ministership sean cocktail last summer. If I remember correctly onus tertius are wonderful to put in just about any cocktail you can think of. I think the flavors can go so many directions Sion's but even just just putting a few flowers in the Shaker with the spirit of your choice and shake it up the color her goes in so you get that gorgeous color then you strain it all the debris out and garnish with another nasution flour It is wonderful wonderful and this is a great thing to go from California. Poppy seeds to new CERTIAN. Because we're going from very fine seeds that are almost like dust. Yes who big round seeds that get poked into the ground that you don't put on the surface right right right and that's why I like them because they're so easy to manage you know they're they're big enough so that you can plant them exactly where you want them you don't have to sprinkle them they're easy to handle with your fingers. These do not require light. In order to germinate in fact they require darkness. These are annuals that will not only grow but they will flower all summer long and into the fall and that's a nice thing. California poppies tend to flower best early in the season and then once it gets hot the kind of close up shop and take a break but not in a stir shrooms have very long bloom season and the way they spread they can they can be a great ground cover. You can train them up a trellis. It's it's a fantastic annual plant. Really brightens up the garden. Now I want to add another sprinkle sprinkle on the surface. Plant here At that really makes a good companion with Mr Cham's if you want to grow them in the same area and that's so listen you know the the just the standard lobe you'll area you can take those seeds and sprinkle them out whether it is in gravelly areas they also would do well with the California poppies or whether it's right in certain areas of your garden and they will germinate and grow and like the California poppies once they are established they will self seed from year not
"fern" Discussed on Signs From The Other Side with Fern Ronay
"Welcome to sign on the other side with fern renee. I'm your host Fern Rene. And this is the place to share stories of signs and messages received from the other side before we get started. If you would like to hear more stories of science from the other side please be sure to rate review in subscribe in Apple podcasts. And please tell a friend who you think might also like these stories and if you like to read. I am the author of better in the morning. The story of a single twenty nine year old Manhattan lawyer who is guided in her dreams by her dead Italian grandparents and better believe it. The story of unhappily married mother who is guided in her dreams by her dead chain-smoking cuts in. You can learn more at firm row. Nate DOT COM. Thank you so much for listening and reaching out and social media I love hearing from you and I love hearing your stories now onto the show. Welcome I'm here with a very special co host. Today my husband how he wrote today he's going to interview me about my new book. Better believe it and a special visitor. We believe was sent from the other side. So welcome Howie high fern. Thank you for having me again. I'm really honored to be host for the second time this this holiday addition of signs and the other side he's popular demand. Yes I heard. At least one person wants back in here. I am. I do have to tell you that. I'm the proudest has been in the country to see all the hard work you put into your second novel. Come to fruition really. It's a great joy and am very very proud of you. Of course I love the book but I objectively no. It's a really well crafted great story saying but I'm really proud of you now. There were talking about better believe it. I think we should. I know that I know what better believe it's about but I would love for you to tell anybody listening to your podcast right now for those who may have heard of the book but don't know exactly if it's a continuation to better in the morning. It's the same or different story. Or part of the franchise if you want to expound on what this book is about. It's similar in that. Obviously I believe that when we go to sleep at night we can reach out we can speak to. We can meet with our loved ones on the other side or spirit guides on the other side when we sleep in different plane. So they're both similar in that sense better in the morning is the story of Veronica and better believe it is the story of Jada who actually was best friend so the protagonists in the first book is different than the protagonist in the second book. There standalone novels. It's not a series that has to be read in order but I think people should read better in the morning first and then better believe I'm better in the morning. Is The story of single twenty nine year old Manhattan lawyer whose guided in her dreams by her dead Italian grandparents Veronica stories. Quite a bit lighter than data's and better believe it is the story of unhappily married mother who is guided in her dreams by her dead chain-smoking cousin and while the it is humorous. The issues are are heavier. I think and I think it's a little bit darker. But it's they're I mean they're both. I think they're both stories that have elements of humor and also of spirituality. But I think one is when.
"fern" Discussed on Signs From The Other Side with Fern Ronay
"Forget that what a gift for you and them. Amazing exactly exactly. It's it some of these hard ticket over. It takes time to get over it because it again. It's it's excel extraordinarily humbling to have been blessed to be a part of that and then you have ones that go completely the opposite direction. I have a woman who came in her husband had passed away and he is the funniest spirit. Do I love. She comes back in a regular basis. And she's your daughter back in a regular basis but he is hilarious. Key literally was putting on Superhero Costumes. And he was so entertaining turns out he was an entertainer. He was on stage all the time he brought through his personality so much and he was like that he would get serious but people love to make people laugh especially her any always brings through specific details of what's going on in her life since her last reading but he just has this energy. I am smiling talking about it. Because you know those people that you get around them and you can't not smile He is that person and whenever I get to do a reading with him. It's amazing he's just and yeah. It was amazing and I have never laughed so hard and reading. I was laughing so hard. I was crying until she. And she's like I did not expect things to go this west meter but it was exactly what she needed. Yeah and it's validation that he's still him? Yes yes and I. I have the phrase that I use my website called one more moment with the ones you love. Because they do come through their personalities and I've had so many clients tell me I feel like I just spent time with my mom or with my husband or with my brother because they do come through what their personalities intact And I would say one of my other favorite stories is I have so many of them. I get so excited talking about this. Because it's what people changed sitting across from you or on the phone carrying them There was one woman who came in and she's late twenties. Maybe early thirties sometimes spirits. They will give my client something to watch out for to know that it's them And just be a sign that there with them. So this This woman her sister actually came through and she was giving me a sign of hot air balloons like when she sees hard airplanes to know that that's her and I thought well that's really random off on air balloons and I thought really want me to say how they're balloons and she was like okay and they always say it's not just an actual hot air ballooning picture on the side of a black server but often you see how our land back and so her sister was. My client was like okay. I don't know today she saying and I just I always pass along with. They say whether it makes any sense or not well. She emailed me like thirty minutes later. She says they've just got home and I don't know why didn't think of it but I have exactly two pictures in my bedroom. And this is one of them for ever bear in a hot air balloon. I was like Oh my gosh. Oh that's incredible doesn't have to be an actual harder like. She doesn't have to walk outside and honorably exactly like a Carter a memoir. And they'll you know it could be like that. That's that's a sign that's incredible. It's all of these things because it means something specific it is something that again. I couldn't possibly know Yeah but it. It means something to them and it stays with them to jail personnel. Do you receive any signs from loved ones. I don't and I don't try to Because I don't think that's why I have this gift I think I have it to help others. But one is the things that I've learned is to be okay with not being in control And that was the hardest lesson for me. The Taipei Person Do just to be a psychic medium. In general the first thing I have to do is stop trying when you type a person to stop trying like Laura. Oh I'm wondering about working on on releasing which is so hard I feel like I'm constantly gripping like it's incredibly freeing. Yeah I think about it as a person who's also always been very hard on herself. One of the things for me is when I was like what if I don't do it right. What if I don't do it right? Well I'm not doing anything. I can't take credit for this. Someone who's really hard on herself. Which I am. I going to do it right. What if I don't do it right But then I realized doing anything I can't take credit for this. I personally I believe in God. I believe God gave me this gift in order to help people And he opened up at the right time in order for me to help people and by knowing that. It's not my gift. I kind of tell people I am the volume button on the radio. I just turn. The metric is up so you can hear them Irene to stop blaming myself. I'm doing it so if a message doesn't come that they're looking for war Twice in all the readings that John had twice. Where couldn't get anybody? It was the same person like you said. Come back later in the back. Yeah Yeah and I just getting nothing And the old me would have beat myself up about that. Yeah but the news like I. I don't know if it's just not the right time in her life Or maybe something else needs to happen before she gets disinformation or maybe she's supposed to meet someone else who the reader so. I could get anything. She'll go to them. Yeah so I gave her money back and and I don't. I don't know the wise but the thing is now I don't need to. Yeah how freeing. And you find your nose and there's no you can put a y. And you spend so much time doing that but what does it really get you? Yeah and there's no shame type. A personality would be like I can't tell this story because it should be perfect but you can tell the story. Is You know it's not you exactly. Yeah actually and She this happened with her and then one other time. I couldn't get anything but I mean I've done so many readings. Yeah Yeah and then again I I don't know why and but I don't need to make it right for the client and that's all I can do. Yeah his I learned that. I don't know nearly as much as they do. Yeah what's happening in life? Yeah you're amazing couple of books right now. So I'm hoping is a book. I'm I'm working on a couple At some point I do WANNA write a book about my my story and then get into more details about my childhood about Kind of how this whole thing happened and it's interesting but I also WanNa right. I'm looking to write a book about The kind of learned from heaven And they really kind of amazing perspective on certain illnesses on things that people don't know for instance the fact that these people are spending time on the other side they're going back and forth so there with family on the other side. They're not alone just hanging out to cover I mean there's there. Are Things like that that I've learned. That can be really really helpful for people here. Who have families in those situations? Yeah you have to write. These books. Came into yeah. And where can everyone find you come to my website is www dot light of the PHOENIX DOT COM And I also have instagram. Which is light underscore of underscore the underscore Phoenix And facebook is light if the Phoenix one. Okay basically what? My facebook and instagram are as I realize that when they started doing these readings that was come through for my clients. They say some really beautiful things So I started taking quotes so if you know comes through and says something for his daughter his son I will take a quote and I call the messages from beyond me and my basically almost my entire experiment I spoke is really just those quotes manhood. Everyone go from being fired by Right because I think there's a lot of broken people in this world. That could just use them kind words. Yeah and I know that I can't say some of these things and some of them very simple But they can still be very helpful and there are very few that I put out there. That at least one person doesn't say I needed to see this today. Yeah one person says that Ben. I'm happy yes and I love the name of all of these in the in the show notes but I love the name. The light of the Phoenix. It's so meaningful yes. Her knee was basically. I was the Phoenix because my life as I knew it turned around me. I didn't have my job. I didn't have my family. I didn't have my home and I didn't know what my future was going to be. And I was able to rise from the ashes and I'm trying to be like so that point named it light at the Phoenix. It's perfect. It's perfect happy when inhalable. Thank you yes. What are the chances that that would be available on? I know it's it's great. It's perfect but thank you so much.
