How Do You Measure Accuracy in Speech Recognition?
"Do you mean when you say accuracy when it comes to speech recognition. So that's a really really good question. How do we measure that when we talk about accuracy we're talking about. How many words correct did the system get so. We call this word race so often. It's you know the smaller. The number the more accurate system or we can talk in terms of accuracy. The higher the number the more accurate unperformed system is on what happens is as children get younger. The systems that have been on adult data. They have been modeling language adult behaviors. They work reasonably well for amateur ten-year-old nine ten ten twelve the beginning to sound like little adults now we all know that not all kids are like some kids take a little more development maturing but by the whole when they start getting a little bit older and they start looking adults. The system start form. Well what happens when children younger. What you see is the performance. The accuracy error rates of how many mistakes the system gets starts to die right. There's two different types of areas we talk and when you look at it is simply that the system isn't hearing the difference between a child and adult speech or is it in the language interpreting so sometimes when you talk to a voice assistant how you may be asking for something way out there that the system is no idea. So is able to transcribe what you said but it just can't match what you said to any reasonable response you get account response gone. I can't help you right now. I don't know that answer. Canned responses are quite a thing in speech recognition league. We're all aware of but there's another type of problem that exists is that when people with accents or dialects that are not served by these speech recognition systems. That you're starting to see some acoustically. It actually can't even transcribe that. I'm really see that problem when it comes to kids too. We like to think much more as if you're trying to deal with a system to understand a fifty year old male at a four year old girl you can start to see how different the child's speeches their language behaviors whether you're also trying to do for the pheromone your effectively boiling the ocean. You know it's going to work for some courts better than others and that can be age profiles. It can be in language dialects. And that's where we start to see bias so the system. Not performing for certain demographics as well as it does for others and dash can have very profound effects
Why We Need Voice Technology for Children With Dr. Patricia Scanlon
"Why do we need voice technology specifically for children while the shelf speech recognition technology tends not to work very well for kids. It's akin to what speech recognition technology was for adults ten years ago which was pretty bad and nobody was really using it at the time. And there's very good reasons for this for kids. They're physically very different right you know. We know that they're they're vocal. Tracks are thinner and shorter the vocal folds of smaller so the actual physical voice resides in the different parts of the spectrum. There speech language is different. I mean you know. Children's language developed so much in those early years from two to four to six to eight to ten you can see how their languages maturing it's become more sophisticated is beginning to follow the language rules as they get older when they reach a by ten and they start sounding a little more mature but their behaviors are so different. I mean adults tend to be quite behaved. Very well actually. It's very little. I very bill speed. How adults when you take dialect and accent. We tend to try and follow the language rules than we tend to try and realize how we should interact with voice technology to get the best possible result but kids don't kids don't follow the language rules that behaviors. They along gate. Were they words. They over pronounce words. They p- unctuous They showed the whispered they sing and their environments that they're in that they inhabit tend to be always noisy. I mean nobody is a four year old likes to go and have quite time on their own. They tend to be around the adults. They tend to be into their kids. They tend to be. Tv's in the background and adults token northward. Kids are in classrooms playgrounds from cars. When the us. I want to use voice technology. It's not in a quiet environment and we have to be really mindful of that. We also have to be mindful of the channels which children interact with technology. All different chipset from cheap old smartphones more expensive ipads to chromebooks two laptops to Cheap microphones on toys. A voice technology built for kids has to work in all those environments all those channels and be able to cope with the very ability of kids speech speech in terms of their acoustically. How they sound on on the physical differences both well as the language and the behaviors. I'm very much so we need to protect kids. Data it far beyond what we. We consider important nine space in life. Our kids are sensitive sensitive when it comes to kids. We need to respect the privacy of kids data and that's critical as well

The History of Marie Taglioni: The Romantic Era’s Most Renowned Ballerina
"And we're gonna talk about a very famous to anybody who knows anything about dance. Marie tagliani who was very famous dancer. really considered the ballerina of the romantic and she's often credited with revolutionizing valet restyling it redefining dance but her father was really a pretty significant part of all of those achievements And she came from a bali family. So i mentioned her father but also her grandfather. Carl tahiliani was a theatrical dancer. And a choreographer. Her uncle salvator was a prominent dancer. Her mother was swedish. Ballerina named hedvig sophie. Karston although she did not go by head big But her father. Felipe tagliani was really the biggest influence on her life and her career and filippo was a dancer and a choreographer he was very successful and he's credited with much of the development of what we now refer to as the romantic ballet style so marie had dance in her blood like genetically she should've been primed but it didn't really play out that way. Initially no in eighteen o three filippo. He took a job as principal dancer and ballet master in stockholm sweden. And that's where he met and married sophie karston. Which is the name. She used her middle name Instead of her first name which was big they started a family right away. Marie was born on april. Twenty third eighteen. Four in stockholm. Her brother paul was born. Four years later and filippo accepted a post in vienna. When marie was still an infant and philippa did some training with his children when they were very young but When they were school age he moved them to paris to pursue additional dance training but despite being the daughter of to accomplish answers and having a pedigree that goes went back even further than that. Marie really did not impress the ballet masters in the french capital according to paris opera director. Louis veron's more jean-francois kulon. Who was the prison teacher. Who had trained filippo once. Famously said this about marie. When all that little hunchback ever learned
G7 Nations to Pledge 1B Vaccine Doses for World
"Look at some of the other themes from the g. Seven summit beyond the johnson biden relationship and brexit. I think the big policy announcement george. We've about shaving vaccines with the words. Of pledging won't billion jobs how significant is this. What is significant. It's welcoming certainly listen to some of the The aid organizations medical charities. They say it's not enough. Misses a pledge which is being rolled out over the next year. Some people say they'd like to live it by the end of twenty one. But i think it is significant a big picture that g seven is an attempt by the west to show that they can deliver full the developing world that they can show leadership and talk about voting. Sometimes there's real concern in some of the western capitals china and russia in particular using vaccine's as a way of extending their influence into the developing world offering jobs with strings attached as anthony blinken. Us sexiest puts it over the course of this kind of expect to see the make pledges on tackling climate change poverty alleviation generally. So it's an important step of for seven off the four years of effective paralysis while trump was the president of the west getting together and trying to do things.

"I think look at. You mentioned those gaps If you checked another gap. I am sure if you check the media big tech hollywood And the pray you know the the press and all these other institutions would find an even bigger gap because they were uniformly against trump and used their powers to remember the new york. Times said nowhere objectivity While trump's around so i'm not sure what this knee means. I think that had trump spent his time in georgia. Not just say. I'm gonna do one rally before and then use two thirds of that rally to complain about how he'd been treated. I think he could've won georgia and then that would have put a different gloss on his exit Now we don't know. What are those policies at kim outlined in the utah. We don't know what's going to survive. And what what isn't he could have made a case. I think that Before the the the capital riots and everything that his was was a disruptive But a necessary disruptive one term presidency and set things up for For better down the future. But we don't know that yet because we don't know what joe biden's going to do what his legacy is gonna do all presidents Enter with optimism and so forth in some some leaf. Barry defeated so We need some historical perspective to see what's going to happen. It could look very different for years from now. Depending on how successful the administration is all right.

"four year" Discussed on WSJ Opinion: Potomac Watch
"You know that has an effect on jobs and income here. So trade to me was a big opportunity to casualty of populism. That trade is somehow a bad thing. When i don't know any country that is cut off from trade or so forth that is prospering. To the contrary it's the countries that are most open to trade where ordinary people prosper. The other issue. I wanted to bring up was immigration which probably trump's signature issue on the two thousand sixteen campaign trail and there. It seems to me that he ran up against the limits of presidential power I mean recall that last year there was a thirty five day government shutdown the longest in history and the issue there was that trump wanted billions of dollars for his wall on the us mexico border which did not end up getting and then he declared a national emergency Him to shift money around and we have some miles of new wall but we also have Most of the miles that have been built are replacing existing structures. And so kim. I wonder if the people who were immigration voters in twenty sixty. If if you know the people who that's what brought them to the trump camp if they feel for years later like there's been progress made or the issue's been solved i think they do. I think they know that the issue hasn't been salt and even those hardcore trump supporters. Who voted for him on this issue. Always kind of understood. I mean many of them maybe did believe in the wall but i think they understood that it was more metaphorical and that is. That's why i would argue having spoken to them. They would argue that it was successful because what they cared about was it trumpcare it And i think that this is this gets at times. I have not agreed with all of donald trump's even many donald trump's policies have to do with immigration and the border but one of the reasons donald trump was elected is because there were a significant number of americans who felt that adequate attention has simply not been paid And that this is how you end up with eleven million undocumented people in the country And you know which we have noted is not an ideal situation either now. We would argue the way you handle. That is yeah. You do need some sort of border security. You can't have a sovereign nation without borders But then you set up some kind of long term immigration Deal policy to allow people to come here to work legally or to go back home to be here on a short term visas. There are all kinds of really innovative ideas out there For one reason or another that never happened over the past four years i think in part of the trump administration did come in. I think floating ideas for some kind of a deal..

"I think that's true with donald trump. And i think for people who supported a lot of his policy agenda and the good things that he did These were always disappointing and a distraction from the real work and the worst thing about them is. Most of them were unnecessary. I mean you mentioned one thing about them attacking good people after. They've left the white house. Well sometimes there are bad people that leave the white house that you have to fire. And when i was in the bush white house there were some of those people they left but the the effort was to do it in a way that spared their feelings right not to humiliate them. It's very million to have to leave a white house job or big job or a cabinet office and so your goal was to make it as least embarrassing and painful as possible. Because you don't want them coming back you so trump created enemies that he didn't need didn't need to have by by doing a lot of that stuff and it's it's not a coincidence that in the end it was these trump supporters that did more damage to than anyone on the left wing. You know when they arrived at the capitol. I wanna be clear. I'm not saying that. Every trump supporter is an insurrectionist or white premises as Some democrats are trying to suggest. But those people who considered himself supporters they. They really did more harm than anyone else. And what flowed from all this volatility. Has i think it's true to say political failure. I mean the twenty two thousand eighteen election's republicans lost the suburbs a lost the house of representatives. And it's true that the the president's party often gets a drubbing in the mid terms then The idea of second trump term and then earlier this month. Kim republicans lost the senate after those two georgia runoffs which to me look like they were eminently. Winnable races lost because of these these post-election antics by the president and now that's going to enable democrats to start dismantling A lot of the stuff we talked about it in the first half of the show. Well i agree with you on georgia. I think the overall results from the two thousand twenty election or a little bit more mixed What was very clear. Is that while. There seemed to be a lot of americans who were tired as it were of The trump presidency And simply that the nonstop craziness of it. And i would just like to add agree with everything you and bill have said about the president and his reaction to things and how it often made it worse but i don't think you can talk about that in the craziness of the trump administration over trump era without mentioning the media Which you know just spiraled all of this up into craziness Or democrats house. Democrats in particular. And they're you know they're not investigations and impeachment and the nonstop. You know where. We the whole russia collusion hoax. Which you know. Saddle sat on top of this administration. The whole time There were two sides to the craziness. trump bears his responsibility but a lot of our institutions and his opponents. Do as well to now. A lot of americans decided they were tired of that That seemed to play into the president's defeat at the election electoral pulse at the same time. Nancy pelosi lost a lot of seats in the house and despite the fact that republicans had far more people up for reelection They had you know as many as a dozen seats at one. Point in the senate that were considered at risk They held the senate right up until those george races I think the president did his party no favours on the way out by focusing on the election results for as long as he did And really.

"Had died in february and four years later kim You know. The trump administration has confirmed not just a a replacement for him that shares his view of textual ism and originalism but also to additional justices Brooke cavanaugh and amy coney barrett who are going to put their prints on american law for a long time right and in doing so created for the first time in a long time a court that does not have a five four split but rather there are six three conservatives. it's going to change the entire dynamic of the court. Because john roberts achieve justice is no longer going to be that swing vote. He has in recent years cared very much about the reputation of his court and at times. People like us have criticize him to the extent. He's done that in that. We thought he has sacrificed good law. And some good moments in order to to try to to shelter the court as it were from headlines criticisms that. I think we could argue. He's going to get no matter what he does. But that's gonna change now. Probably not just in terms of the way the court rules but the cases it's willing to take on and hopefully it will be a little bit more about handling some of these longstanding issues for instance you have to do with the second amendment that it's shied from over the years i'm to other one other thing i would just point out about. All of these justices ann at a little chance to have a shout out to an early member of the trump administration. That was first general. Counsel don mcgann. He had a big role in of these initial appointments. And i remember talking to him. And in addition to to making sure he judges that were Textualist mentioned There was a huge emphasis on getting younger candidates. Ones that would indeed be on the courts for many decades to come but also ones that were experienced experts in administrative law And that rounds. Back to this whole argument we were talking about before about democrats tendencies to try to do everything through rulemaking rather than going through the legislature These judges guys like neil gorsuch have been Pretty skeptical of that particular things like the chevron doctrine which says you have to just give deference to administrative agencies and. I think that that could have any norma's impact in years to come on the size of the federal government and its powers so let's switch to the other side of the ledger. What went awry and It seems to me that some of the biggest failures of the past four years have been related to trump the person and his volatility And just thinking. Back the bombshell tweets the staff turnover and then kicking. Good people as they go out the door those off the cuff covid briefings Including that moment where. The president was musing about the medical possibilities of disinfectants. The strange courtship of kim jong hoon And then finally build the the post-election meltdown telling his fans that he wanted to landslide And then culminating in that riot at the capitol on january six. Yeah angry entirely brought. I mean look. He's a little like nixon. When people said nixon was paranoid enemies were after him. They were after him but he didn't. He didn't help himself by giving them the ammunition to go after them..

"Republican party norms which were ordered an updated. You might say by the necessities of the cold war as the cold. War has faded. You're seeing a regression to the mean in the republican party which trump is not the cause of but merely an example of and so the old republicanism. Which would stood for a much more modest foreign policy for limits on immigration gauging immigration. By the capacity to americanize the immigrants limited taxes a constitutional conservatism constitutional limits on the legislature. All of these things including tariffs and a more trade policy and a national economic policy driven by national interests. All of this is very traditional in the republican party. And what you're saying Despite the excited crowd is of and others is to me really. Not that threatening accepted is threatening to the The washington consensus both in domestic and foreign policy as it has existed for the past generation. At least yasha we have two very different conceptions of reality and of the american constitution both in america and on this panel and appropriately enough. You wrote a piece in two thousand. Nineteen republicans don't understand democrats. Democrats don't understand. Republicans talking about that perception gaps that makes both sides unable to empathize with each other. How do you reconcile the argument. That charles just made namely that republicans are resurrecting the original constitution against on principle assaults by progressives and arguments like the one that you made repeatedly over the past four years including in two thousand. Sixteen where you talked about the interlocking reasons why our confidence in the system is naive and ways that our system of checks and balances has relatively few resources to stop an authoritarian president from violating the constitution. So like the hard question. I'm asking you so important as i. How do you reconcile the completely different views. One of the charleston. You have articulated. And how would you bridge this gap for our viewers. Well look i think. I would distinguish between two very different things. I think by some high level of education going on him. So one is that undoubtedly democrats and republicans have trouble understanding each other some very interesting public opinion research by more in common in this but essentially showed that when you ask democrats what kind of believes republicans have you know they caricature they think republicans would hate immigrants That they don't think any racial discrimination in the country and so on actually most republicans have reggie positive attitudes towards immigrants Immigration system at puffy recognized that the ongoing forms of racial injustice at the other way round. We asked republicans. About what kind of us democrats have. you know. They would faint Supporters who make excuses for political violence than on proud to be american for example. Actually a huge majority of democrats proud to be american project. Things like antiques. Oh so there is definitely sort of mutual incomprehension going on that also exists mole philosophical level. So i don't disagree of childhood as different notions of constitution The drive each side that leads to certain misunderstandings. And disagreements i think one example of this was when senator mike said but in fact amount has not aiming to democracy. It's a republican. You can have different views about how helpful clever applying bet is but it was spotted by a lot of left leaning media as a senator Sort of open admitting but he's anti-democratic but he wants to destroy the actual system was something like bad though simply misunderstanding of what he had said at Example of of of that kind of clash between different readings of the constitution and different vocabulary leading to a little bit of hyperventilation. So i don't disagree with that exists now was very putting out folk is that as ad said what. Donald trump has been up to for glass for years in what he has been up to in these past weeks should be a crying affront to either the to conception of constitution whether you believe we live in a democracy public whether you saying that the anti-democratic of account majoritarian elements of the constitution. Like the senate a perfectly appropriate whether you think that's problematic. I've you should believe in the peaceful transfer of power. I have a way you should believe that it's very important not to undermine the trust the people have in the election system. I've away you should think that a sitting president should not say that those massive voter fraud by being able to offer any of evidence of for that feces. I've away you should say that. The president going on about how his opponent should be locked up committing crimes. In an unsubstantiated way is exactly the kind of behavior doomed Republics that had been attempted before foundation of ours and that the founding fathers was so worried about when they road not just the constitution but when we modeled a set of behaviors in a set of new orleans. They hoped would put us on a more stable pop so to yes. We have different notions of Operating with yes. That's a lot of mutual Incomprehension but to spin that into an excuse for the kind of behavior we have seen from the outgoing president of last week's takes a little bit of by david as someone who favors. gop senate oppose president trump. your perhaps uniquely well situated to help translate each side to the other so put us in the shoes of the seventy percent of republicans who believe that the election was rigged and also the republican senators. Who are supporting the president's claiming and then as you think about the way forward. I am always struck by how difficult it is to persuade people who disagree with you about policy at the same time. It is possible to have civil debates about the meaning of the constitution as we find every day at the constitution center host precisely debates between liberals and conservatives. Is that one way that both sides can debate productively basically not not just setting the policy disagreements aside and focusing on the constitutional disagreements or do you have other suggestions for productive discussion moving forward. Well it's it's frankly hard. It's as a practical basis on a mass scale. It's really hard you know through the big sort. We increasingly live around people of like mind as we live around. People of like mind reinforcer owned by season. We grow more extreme. We channel our interests into the media. That reinforces all of those trends. So you know the way. I've put it to people who i live in a precinct that went almost seventy percent for for trump. I think in the last in in two thousand sixteen. I lived in more rural precinct and it went seventy two percent for trump. My friends my neighbors. They support trump. And one thing that i say.

"What was part of? It's interesting that trump basically gave life to every criticism of me and Obama like everything they said about the Iran deal everything about Paris everything's, of Cuba, opening will they got to do whatever they wanted right and so so you know the trump presidency is the manifestation of by worst nightmare sense like think of your worst troll in life becomes the president states right and they're. Very Determined I. Mean Not all my trolls I. Think are determined. They're not fixated on me enough that they would want to just reverse everything I've gone from the color of my drapes to you know my hairstyle but because of trump's fixation on Obama as his white whale, he did want to reverse everything. So don't do stupid shit becomes. Let's see what is it again reversing it do stupid Shit as possible. Exactly. Max Out on the stupid shit and then also reverse the Iran deal because it has Obama's name on it and so on I agree with you. If you know I think I tweeted one time like one thing we have learned from this time have been the virtues of the Iran deal now that we're without it that was accomplishing a lot in. The region since since two thousand sixteen did you expect the deal to to really follow park has had some support on the right and I think at the very beginning of trump you might have thought he's got his eye focused on the southern border or these other things that he'd really run on an inspite of the Michael Flynn commitment to stamping out radical Islamic terrorism they. Maybe wouldn't do this take away the Iran deal. How did that evolve for you when you saw must really going down well so when when Flynn got ousted after fifteen days, there was about a year when McMaster was the national skirt advisor Mattis's at defense were they were clearly doing everything they could to save the Iran deal. They didn't want the risk of leaving which by the way was ironic because mattis is critical of the Rondo on came out it just shows you when you're. Actually empower, you might prefer to have an arms control agreement place. Yeah. So I actually thought there was a fighting chance of the thing could survive, but to trump, it was interesting how the Iran deal was. So central to just kind of their narrative about Obama and his foreign policy and his weakness in his coddling of quote unquote radical Islam. You could tell the trump wasn't going to give it up and then John Bolton became national skirt advisor. The thing is toast. Of. What's been interesting in watching it play out is the arguments that we made that they called dishonest at the time were essentially that it's either this deal or the Iranians advanced their program. If you leave the deal, you're going to strengthen the hardliners in Iran and you're going to risk war and. Literally all those all arguments that they said were so dishonest and said, I can constructed a totally fake echo chamber to make those arguments, but they've all happened. Iran is restarted its nuclear program. The hardliners are clearly in charge there..

"Money can be withdrawn tax free in the future because obviously governments are spending a of money to deal with this cova crisis and we don't know what taxes are going to be in the future but there seems to be a higher probability that taxes would need to increase the pay for all of this this year I'm just going to try to diversify my texts advantage accounts bit more and put some more money into the Roth side of. Things I'm also thinking differently about travel rewards. So if you've read my article articles, you know that I was building up a big stash of miles and points. So that the next time there's a big stock market crash I could use all of those Muslim points to travel while being fund was much cash into the down market is I could well, I didn't expect that the crash would come with a global pandemic, which means that we can't travel anyway. So that's been interesting. Because that sort of foiled my plan to use all this points. So I started getting a little bit worried about having huge balances in those programs because airlines are struggling at the moment hotels struggling credit card companies are likely struggling. So having a million points scattered across different programs was a bit risky for me at this stage. So I've actually started using some of this points to pay for groceries which I am surprised about myself, but the deal was too good to pass up. So I recently found out that, I can use my chase points to. Grocery bills off of my credit card statement and normally that's not really a great redemption. But since I have a chase Sapphire reserve card I was able to get one point five cents per point, which is a decent redemption. It's not amazing but it's decent and the fact that that's same card was giving me five points per dollar at grocery stores for the whole pandemic that. Means I was able to get seven point five percent off of my grocery bill, which was pretty much expense during the three months of lockdown. So it turned out to be a great deal. It's allowed me to get through some of my points and lower my point balances a bit more, and it's also saved us some money so that if the market does decrease again, we'll have. More cash to put into it. If you're interested in learning more about the card that is definitely been my Go-to card for the last three or four years ever since I came out I hopped onto soon as it came out and it was amazing for travel. But like I said, it's been great for groceries and stuff to during the pandemic. So if you're interested to learn more. About that.

There were rules that were to be followed based on biblical principles. made out has also military. So I think that that kind of had a little bit to play with it like it was very strict. I grew up in a very strict house like I mean not so strict where like I couldn't wear pants strict. You definitely wore pants I definitely wear pants. I meant. What attracted me to you is the fact that you didn't wear pants. Open. I'm kidding oh getting Others upon him. Gosh. No but it was it was a strict house. So I mean like we didn't have to wear dresses all the time. We didn't have to cover our heads how some women do like. It was like you said, is legalistic like we look down on people who who didn't go to church and I mean like that. That was. At the time I didn't know any different. You know that was just that was how we grew up. All I knew is that I wasn't allowed to wear makeup outside the house. I didn't. I wasn't allowed to do this.

She was not a person and I don't agree with that I feel like that is very demeaning that that post that you shared it's very demeaning toward women meaning that women only serve one function and that's either for you to get off for you to get fed or for your kids to be taken care of.

I mean here's the thing I don't see anything wrong with I mean, the Bible says to be submissive to your husband. But. What. What how I feel is you know what? I have no problem being submissive to you. But? For me to be submissive to you, there needs to be respect to give him back and that that did not pose to me as he was being respectful to his wife rain. So. It's just like. With anything if you don't give respect, you're not going to get it back and I think that maybe that's his problem. The he he's not getting any respect from his wife but you WANNA know why bill because you're not giving respect. You're not showing your wife that she is loved more than anything else. You're not showing her that that you know she is prized in your is above everybody else you're just expecting from her and. obviously, I feel that that's not right well, and part of the reason I brought it up because I was I remember I was going through Yahoo and looking for questions that we could be funny and. and..

Really, probably last year the year before that, they wanted to sell the house that we live in right now right because there's just too much of a burden to have to pay and just giving taking care of the roof knees redone and things like that, and we seriously thought about buying it but it only has two bedrooms right now with two girls chew bedrooms would put us out of a bedroom. Because this, they're they're at the point where like you were saying they, they have different interests and. Different maturity levels, right. Well, that puts them at odds quite a bit..

"Here Shut up. To pivot anymore, you'd think. So I think we have tried to take her her interest in technology and turn it into something. Good. So for Christmas, we bought her a little It's a raspberry Pi computer it was a kit. So it came with a keyboard and she bill everything which was really cool and I'm I'm. Trying to to nudge her toward learning how to Code and understanding that she's pretty good at it. Yeah. She sat what for a whole day On, a Saturday and just let coated a whole website Yup. To where it would run in function and yes, she actually did that on the IPAD before we got her. Made US think that maybe that was a good idea direction to go in and I think it was I. I don't have any bad feelings about it I just I'm frustrated with myself because it's taken this long it's now April as we record this episode it's four months for me to go. I should probably have a dedicated spot for her to sit down but I was using my desk. Yes. So it's good. and. Then So the little baby that. was once in our podcast. Yeah. Houston interrupt and she's not such a baby anymore she's five just turned five aisles aisles. EILLY. She. She is something else. Everybody everybody told me when I was pregnant. Oh my gosh that second child. You have an issues. No just. Oh I'm adjusting the volume just a little bit on my end. Okay. So. everybody always told me that second kid. Their their doozy. They weren't lying and she's a lot different than greasy everything is different. They're literally night and day like when she came along a Gracie. She always slept great through the night. Implant footsie on the airplane for. My sock is your son sucked foot. Yes So she's night and day gracie slept during the night and I never did. And now it's kind of role reversal ever since gracey started with her attitude. Its role reversal, she likes to stay up late and get up late in Eilly likes to go to bed early and get up early.

"Might as well. Be Me I think it's like. You and the girls kind of have what he took the red box back. Yes I did. Sorry. That was. So. Anyway, the original of the show was basically let's have fun. Let's have conversations with each other that we think other people need to hear because everybody needed to know we had a red box By the way, I should've taken it back last night. Took it back to Knight. Nike about it. I know. We Go I actually do have an outline for the show. Following it at all on your phone. You could look at it. Will about that? So the the original see for the show for the fifth time was to have these conversations with the two of us but record them and and just have fun because. We knew. That there's no way in the world that we were the only two people having the conversations that we have. Maybe we are. Maybe we are. Now you get to listen to it and yeah and We encourage. We encourage you to weigh in on the episodes. Give feedback. Yeah. or share stories. I. Think That's something that I'm looking forward to so here at you know. Almost, ten minutes into the show. I'm just GONNA, ask you please go to because we said show dot com I thought you were asking me no, not you listener that I'm GonNa to. I have to quit looking at me at at you Wendy and look at the computer when I'm not talking directly to you. But. That's kind of weird too. So anyway, listener person you listening yes. Looking at the computer. You. Yes you go to because we said show dot com and leave a comment on the first episode post that was Cheesy I. Know I don't know I don't know I know. Oh? Doesn't get it.

Verde covered two out of three well. Of I mean, kind of so like you said, it's been four years since our last episode. Yeah. And our kids have grown right we have a ten year old ten year old double digits doubles Ho attitude. Yeah it's an interesting it's a new thing. I'm kind of upset with my parents for not telling me that this happens but then again. My parents had mostly boys. Yeah, and they were all like you. Boys just well, you know what boys deal. Come in the bathroom for ten minutes. They're fine. We we. Did. Know, we have lots and lots of attitude from the ten year old. She's quite spunky. Though I mean I mean I have to say that I'm obligated to say that I think it's it's in the parent code is in like a contract like the release forms. Spill See I think that's why see that's why we should have had kids at home. Well, I think that's why might have the last asking to be home. So so there's no contract there like we can treat these kids however we want. I don't know So yeah. Grace is ten now. Grace yes and not greasy. Gracie she'll probably always be my gracie. She is a spitfire she is one. She shall things electronic which I can't think of any kid right now that's not until electronics or SCR I think though that we're we're trying to pivot that in the best possible direction and enter friends..

"So. I may have I'm going to have to edit a lot of this. Sorry welcome to because we said my name is Dave Clements and I'm his wife Wendy Clements. Glad you have the same last name as me. WOULD BE WEIRD I'm here why I mean a lot of people do it. Hi I'm your wife Wendy Kabob. which is an even worse name than your maiden name and my maiden name was okay Lawson's not bad. No, it's not as good as clements though you said, you didn't like your last name about a week ago I have problems with my last. But Hey look at it. This way you went from the end of the line to the front of the line not the end pretty darn close Nah, maybe the middle. I mean if you're going by like a well, even a through M I get thrown into that first batch but. I've been this last name for although I've been this last night for about twelve years eleven and a half years, but every once in a while. I don't know why maybe some people do. Maybe some women do this like when you change your name. Sometimes Blake. You're like Oh. Yeah. I'm Wendy. Lawson. I. Mean you wouldn't say that. It was. I said, last name was lost. If like you say your maiden name and you're like, Whoa, where did that come from like I haven't done that in probably five years it's really weird. It's weird to start writing my name and all of a sudden I start writing. Where did that come from? Well, it's it's weird for me because you've been, you know you've had the name of you've had for, like you said like twelve years. and.

I don't have a cough button so you're gonNA have to cough and edit it out now. So. Yeah Anyway. We found ourselves. Having these conversations. That we were just like Oh we should be recording this right now. And we're doing that before we even started tonight. Will Yeah Yeah and I guess I guess that's kind of what I'm saying too. Is. We do that a lot though yeah and that was that was kind of the conceit of what this show is going to be. It's all right I'm really sorry. No, it's all right. It's funny because you have a bottle of water you drink like half of it so far, and you're still coughing it's that darn cold that's been true hovering around our house. Sorry. This is how it works.
