What Happened to the Red Wave?

"What happened to the red wave? What happened to the we're going to win a hundred seats in a hundred years. Now in the House of Representatives, I think that's going to happen. I don't think they could put that Genie back in the bottle. But we might just win slightly instead of winning massively. Is it possible that your Republican Party are Republican Party deep down is cheering for a minor loss? What could possibly be the calculation behind that? The calculation is that a massive grassroots people centered populist win will make the Republican establishment less powerful and displaced from power. To go back to the Tea Party movement in 2010, that was a moment that terrified the oligarchs of Washington D.C., but it wasn't just 2010. It was also 2016. It was ten, it was 16 and they are worried that 22 could make 16 and ten look like a little blip. They're worried that a legitimate tsunami is brewing in this country and your Republican establishment is worried that might be hard to manage.

Foxworth Friday: Sport Is About Entertainment

"It was interesting because somebody got in my mentions and said, you're measuring success by how much people enjoyed it? Yeah. What else are you in this for? One thing I don't feel like you can do if you observe in this as a fan is to treat it like management. You know what I'm saying? Like the management you get in there this ain't about falling. This is about business. This is a job for you. You as a fan, you took this on as another job? I mean, I think that's speaks to the number of cases of sports and that they out here like so many fans are out here trying to take an analytical position to the point where it feels like they got a Lakers logo on their polos when you don't. Like, did you have a good time or die? It is outrageous the investment that people have is like quasi religious. Almost that they have in some of these teams where it's about doing the right thing and it goes to Genie's tweet. It's about doing the right thing for the team. Since when have I ever been compelled to do the right thing for a company, I thought the companies were supposed to be doing the right thing for me. I'll pay you. Like, I'll buy your jerseys or your hats, I'll buy your tickets. But make sure that I enjoy my damn self at this entertainment property. I don't give a damn about your bottom line. I don't give a damn about how happy you are. I'm the customer. So that point is, it always blows my mind. Or it would blow my mind if I had heard someone say like, oh, we in this to measure it by how much fun? No, Genie bust and LeBron can count rings. Yes. I said to me, what? I want to know how happy they made me.

Matt Whitaker Reacts to the Supreme Court's EPA Ruling

"On a case that is not getting frankly as much in is because it takes a little bit more to discuss, but it's pretty plain and simple. The EPA court, I was excited as much about the West Virginia case, is any of the other case believe me, I was excited about the Dobbs case and others. But this EPA case is something you saw firsthand dealing in the administration level that executive branches have believed that they can have more power than Congress gives them to give us your thoughts on that. Well, I think there's always been an unholy alliance between the administrative state, the ABC admin, you know, unelected bureaucrats and the Congress who don't have to make the tough choices of what they're actually going to regulate. And so they've offloaded in very vague statutes. Some of these powers, whether it's to regulate water, regulate air, quality, regulate all these issues, and of course the administrative state has picked up the baton and run as far as they possibly can. This West Virginia case, I think you're right. I think it's a very important case. Probably not the most important because Dobbs, you know, certainly. Was revolutionary in its restoring the balance of power in the constitution between three branches in the states, but ultimately this West Virginia case versus the EPA is puts the administrative Genie back in the bottle. Makes Congress pass specific legislation to address these issues that are determined to be important. And again, a restores power to the people and takes it out of Washington, D.C., and out of these unelected bureaucrats. So

Trish's Market Rundown for June 28, 2022

"I mentioned gold and we're looking at gold prices, holding steady today. Let me see if I can pull this up for you. I know with all this stuff going on, it's no wonder that you're seeing a sell off in the market. I've been saying all along, you've got to be really, really careful. I'm not your financial adviser. I just kind of, you know, as a journalist, I think, have a pretty good handle on what I think the macro environment is. And it's not good. I mean, I warned you back in the summer of 2020, we'd be looking at hyperinflation. And sure enough, here we are. And I'm going to still warn you that I don't think that is going to be able to just flip a switch and put the Genie back in the bottle. A lot of this inflation is getting embedded. Some of it even into wages. I mean, I like seeing some inflation in wages, but you saw recently a major airline coming out with a 14% increase in pilots pay. I mean, these are the things that they're having to do in order to continue recruiting people, but it causes the margins on the business to get much smaller. Maybe that's okay. Certainly for the employees, but for investors, you've got to just be aware of all this stuff. Anyway, crude oil trading at around a $112 a barrel. Gold holding on pretty much steady at 1822. This is interesting to me that the ten year yield is back at 3.2%. I suspect that as this all kind of works its way through the system, you may start to see a higher increase in that yield. And for me, anyway, I welcome perhaps welcome a day. When we could say, you know, we're going to put money in a treasury bond for ten years and get a decent something kind of a decent return out of it. So I don't entirely see that as a negative, but it is an important thing to watch. And it's a gauge of where people are willing to go and how they're willing to take on risk.

The Inflation Train Has Left the Station - and Biden Isn't in Control

"And as I have warned and I have warned and I have wore once inflation starts, it's very hard to put the Genie back into the bottle. In other words, the train is off and running. It has left the station. And it's very hard to control, which is one of the reasons why you try and watch all the economic indicators. One would think, as a lawmaker, or is it Federal Reserve governor so that you manage it? So that you don't allow it to get totally completely out of control. Well, that's where we are now. That is exactly where we are. It is out of control. And yes, going forward because you're taking a big chunk of the energy market off the supply, you're taking a lot of the food, grain market, right off the supply, chain yes, that will have an effect. Oh, and then you've got, of course, China, shutting down Shanghai, more challenges. Oh, and then you've got, of course, China, shutting down Shanghai, more challenges for our supply chain. So I have no doubt. Inflation is getting so much worse. Joe Biden hasn't seen anything yet.

"What the a lot of them wanna do is they want to experience everything on their one trip. And i think it is like the one chip that you've been saving up for years i would say splurge a bit because if you don't know when you're gonna come back. It's definitely a good idea to do it. And i could see how disney genie might be helpful for that. So further new disney traveler. I could. I could definitely see in support going on all three loved. I agree one hundred percent if you are listening and you're new to disney travel and even if you've only there are a lot of people who go every five years or something so for them. It's pretty new every time and for anyone like that. I definitely agree that disney genie the planning one genie plus and even the pay for play. Ride one are all good investments. You know it's the same thing. I say a lot you're spending x. Thousands of dollars on a trip. A few hundred more to do what you want. Especially if you don't go frequently is value for me. You didn't have that option before. For example rise of the resistance you had all the stress of getting up. I'm only in that park for two days. And now you can almost guarantee you're gonna do it. Okay see that. That is the one good thing about disney genie but had they taken off the virtual queue. Then you wouldn't have to do that. Or virtual queue was the problem. It's still there for attitude. The virtual queue is the problem. Not the lack of fast pass. So it's still better than because the virtual you can still go and lineup. And here's another point. I wanna make what we're i don't know what if any of what i just said made senders but it made sense in my head. It did but they did get rid of the virtual queue so now you can still get on the ride. By lining up yeah exactly for newbies. We agree it is a good thing. I think we both agree. Here's my suggestion if you're listening and you're new traveler.

"I is actually over universal studios again. There's more in more clearing your throat. Getting ready for his show doing working was just clearing my throat syrupy. Serbia was turned his or her is nearing season because allergies are soaking. We've all lived through. Another season of toby is allergy. Wait three days at so. I think we're over it. We're i think we're so close to being over that i hope so Yes a welcome to another mouth shut. Its on today the g. plus came out so it's a perfect time to talk about genie. Plus which is kind of replacing is replacing. The fast pass So we wanted to kind of go over the basics of what it is some questions and answers some examples on how it works. what's free. What's not free how it's priced and so on. So i guess i'll start with some questions and then you guys can chime in truck so high level lauren. What genie plus. That's a great. I know it is so just. Give us a little basic of pressure. Steve can handle us like the basics so basics then we'll get into them. We'll get into all the details. So essentially three services started today. You have genie service which is free. Plus which has a cost of fifteen dollars per person her day of your tickets and then there's the individual lightning lame alicarte. I don't even know what they're calling it. It's the lightning. I know it is. Yes no because genie plus also lately like no. That's is gives you access to the lightning lane right. Thrashings say lightning lane. Purchase is the purchase of front of hugh access for a single attraction which also happens to be the same as guests using like. I said what's very confusing to me. It does not make the anger. Member is a genie. Plus doesn't give you access to the single lightning lane. Purchase attractions confusing. It's very confusing. Just lay it out. Genie is gonna give you all but two of the top tier rides in h. r. Basically so you're gonna have fast past. Essentially lightning lay now ability for the majority of the rides with this except for the ones. You really really want now Except for like your top tiers. So you're seven dwarfs space mountain the new attitude. We ride the frozen ride in epcot rise at the resistance. Mickey many flight of passage in everest are all individual purchases. Yes basically almost everything else is going to be falling under that genie plus fifteen dollars a day deal. Yes there's a few rides that don't have jimmy lightning lane access. But they don't need it so it's fine when each park like there's hardly anything so So yeah so. That's essentially what we're talking about today Jeannie plus i kind of feel like is almost like the old fast past system the paper fast fast system but online and little smarter so now do you think all right lane describe it. It's it's like the paper fast pass but instead of running around and giving you just get them on your phone and you pay and you have to pay for it. Hey four but they had this disneyland in california years ago and we loved it there. Because i do like the service i think you know. I was watching it all day. Today it was like a game. Be on this right now. Yeah just to see what had long waits did it. Change the wait times for standby lines like that stuff. Like i was kind watching for some pattern of something different. And i don't think we can actually get a true feel of it yet. It's gonna take time. But i think there's some benefit to it. I do like genie. Plus i'm not in love with the individual lightning lane with the extra prices. Those arranging. what six dollars to or seven fifteen roadrunner. They're arranging lucy today. Yeah seven dan twenty dollars a day and you got to to guaranteed attractions in that. I like that plan. Can we do that. Yeah i i and lawn. And i had a brief discussion before the show but i i still have a hard time paying disney ticket prices at the front gate and then plus a service the disney has given for free for a decade and then buying alicarte lightning land person per day. Plus you have to buy access on the highest the tr- on the on the most popular attractions. Yeah heckler balanced my opinion. The value is there. There is no doubt no one likes to wait in a three hour attraction line when you would easily pay twenty bucks to hop to the front of the line or the other concern. I have is capacity. And how long will that line get and we'll that line be longer than the standby line. Which is what the problem was with the railway fast paced system before when they changed that became a mess. Yes that's the thing. So like a universal studios they will sell express passes but they only sell so many. So you're guaranteed. Well no because what universal does too is as a surprise sell them. The price goes up. Yes so you know the day they released that. Ms your cheapest data by those passes. Yeah as time goes on it gets more and more expensive because they're trying to basically deter people from by. Yeah and then you know that you're gonna have a decent experience. But what universal does is they just charge you a hundred and fifty or more per person per day so it's a lot more schedule any thank you know like you just go people to their phones so much more. You don't a word. Disney like this is supposed to be about family and spending time together and disease talented Like let's let's make it so much easier for you guys. We're gonna make this easier. I have had so many phone calls with clients.

Thinking orthodox understanding acquiring the orthodox christian mind. You're about to go. I think jeannie into why you wrote the book and this This is important and it crosses denominational lines what you get into in the book So i'm excited about the so. Yeah tell my audience. Y y you wrote the book. I wrote the book to help. Christians understand each other basically because as a minority form of christianity. Here in this country. Most people don't really even though the we exists. Let alone understand who we are. So protestants encounter us. And they put us in the camp with the catholics and the orthodox church is nothing like the catholic church and also Catholics and protestants are in many ways more similar to each other than they are to us. We think we theologies very differently than catholics. And protestants western christianity basically because western christianity developed during the middle ages in western europe. The church was eastern before it was western. The church was greek. Before it was latin. And when the church moved into western europe and began to develop there under the umbrella of the papacy of course it developed at became something very different than what the early church was

"Such a joy for me to have you as my guest that i get really goofy. A genie constantinou urine san diego. You are of course greek. But you're american. Just as i am and you've written a book. I was so excited when i when i saw this. It's title thinking orthodox understanding and acquiring the orthodox christian mind so you are an academic. Let's start there. Yes i am. I'm a professor. And i've been professor for many years professor of new testament and early christianity new testament. Which as we have said was written in greek obviously and early christianity. I wanna get your background Jeannie because you're an academic. You're you're a christian. You you take it all very seriously. There are a lot of people in the world of the academy. Who are you know their professors in new testament studies. And this and that. But you wouldn't describe them as actual christians. They're just academically focused on this. But you really are serious about your faith and you're taking it. You're you're theologian. Yes you're right about that. It's very surprising. How many scholars of new testament really don't believe what's even in the new testament. And i'm shocked at this because i think where else would you have and not just new testament studies but also theology so many people don't accept basic christian doctrines that you and i hold. Dear are absolutely essential such as the virgin birth the resurrection of christ and yet. They're teaching theology even in so called religious institution of. That's the key. I don't i don't expect any different from secular institutions Because they you know they think. Hey it's like. I'm teaching the epic of gilgamesh. You know we're just looking at the text and we don't believe gilgamesh was real dude but the fact is that seminaries in all these kinds of places they don't believe

"Looked. I don't think it's on Disney+. No, bob Iger literally said it will never, ever, ever be on Disney+. It should never be part of the Disney catalog. Okay. There's that. You can find it around, I guess, but you won't find it through that format, I guess. And they put out, I think it was like a 45 minute video. Of a group of Disney employees kind of discussing the impact of Tiana as a princess. As the last hand drawn animated film as all of these the cultural impacts and they spent time down in New Orleans nolans, if you're from there. Drinking in culture and getting inspired. Literally. Literally. So it's a very interesting it's a long discussion, so make sure you have the time or it's fantastic. You have other things to do while listening to it. You watch it already. I did. Oh, thank you. That's great. And it's really nice and then they do a lot of people thought that discussing changing splash mountain was kind of just a performative thing and they weren't actually going to do it. But it seems very much like a real possibility at this point that this is something that's going to happen. They have a storyline kind of mapped out for it to hopefully delight and enchant guests as they are on the new ride. I'm very, very excited about it. I think the right is very cute when you're on it now if you don't really know what they're talking about and whatnot. It's based on super fun $1 million rabbit. Yeah. But Tiana is, I can't wait. It's one of my favorite experiences when I'm in the park. I don't normally geek out over. You do you do get really excited when you see Tiana specifically. Her and Mary Poppins. They're just. What is that? They're just so pretty. Oh, that might be all the time. They're just perfection in the party. She only has that great ballgown to that she always just looks great in. Yeah. She's always just glowing. It's wonderful. Completely true. Yeah. But what I'm most excited about is the fact that, you know, we're getting new rides based on the princesses that we just don't get much anymore. Like the most recent one we got was the frozen ride. And it's not my favorite 'cause I don't love rear projection faces. Personally, so I'm excited to see what technology they put into a Tiana style ride. And I hope we get to see amazing animatronics like the ones that they have in the Beauty and the Beast ride over seas. I would love that level of animatronic here in the United States, just so I can go and stare at it. The only reason I ride the na'vi river journey is because I hope that my boat breaks down in front of the shaman of songs so I can stare at her for a long period of time. It's so cool. Everybody wants that experience, I think, yeah. Yeah. Totally true. Yeah, very true. And I do have to say to those rear projection screens on the Elsa ride. Yeah. You were right. They did not hold up very well, right? The first time I was like, they're pretty good. And then you seem from this side and you're like, they're not as good. And now after years and years of use, you go. Yeah, there's just there's they are kind of like an optical illusion where they're only really really believable from a very specific direction. And once you go past that point, I think the rear projection face is kind of fall apart a bit, because you can see that they're not real, right? Whereas like a full on animatronic face, while it may not move as fluidly as everything else, it holds up from every direction at that point. So it's just, you know, my preference, I think it's always fun to try new things, but it's just not my favorite. Completely true. Yeah. Fun times. I can't wait for the new ready to come out. And I can't wait to watch the movie. Or the 45 minute discussion about it, I tell you. I was like, you've seen princess in the frog. I know you don't remember it. But you've seen it, I promise. Yeah, we watch a weekly. Yeah. It's our happy place movie where we just sit and watch princess Tiana get a restaurant. Yeah, we totally had a princess in the Prague moment this week, right? Did we have a princess in front? We're invading our garage. Oh, there's a frog in the garage. Funny story. Steve comes running in the house and says, we have a rat. We have a mouse in the garage. I'm like, no, no mice. Absolutely not. You know, and we're all stressed about it and we pull cars out and we're trying to find this mouse in the garage. And eventually we give up because what are you going to do? Just take everything out of the garage. I don't know. And as I was pulling my car back in, I saw something and I was like, huh, I wonder if that's the mount. It's something out of place, and I get out and I turn on my little flashlight on my phone. I'm like, oh, it's a frog. And so we spent a solid 20 minutes trying to get that frog to just jump out of the open the giant open garage door. He did not want to go. Yeah, the thing about frogs is they are not necessarily fast. No. They're kind of slow moving. Yeah. We still can not keep up in that buck. He still won. There's lots of there was lots of jumping frogs and moving things trying to get the frog out and swishing the broom around. It was a nightmare. And he's still there. Yeah, we're going to take him on the ride. Yeah. Well, we're going to take him and release him onto the ride in splash mountain. He'll die instantly. Could you imagine if you tried to release a frog into the bromine water? Poor little guy. He would totally die. Would not work out very well. But as of now, he has an aspirin kisses, so we're pretty sure he's not a prince in disguise. Yeah. That's my guess. You have anything else to discuss today? I mean, no, it's pretty much I'm getting in line for my lightning pass now. And it'll probably take you that long. Sorry to say that process. Do we know when they're thinking of implementing those sort of things? They're going to make further announcements closer to and I know I honestly don't know when you said that they were going to announce it. I'm hoping that these announcements are the lead up to the announcement of season passes coming back. And that's pretty much guaranteed at this point most people are pretty sure that that's going to come out. But this is all within the same time I may already be working on it. I mean, they want their 50th anniversary to be a really big success. So and that's the beginning of the new fiscal year so they want to make sure that they make lots of money on that. Business business business. I know. That's the way it works. It is.

"And no idea on what that pricing is going to be. Some people have said that they think that it might be around $8, which means for Disney's gonna be 18. Right. Because it's always just a little bit more than you ever want to pay. Yeah. To get onto that right. So if you ever want to get on to I guess that's not fair to say ever get right because people have said, if you ever want to get a mind train, 7 drawers, mind drain, you're gonna have to pay to get onto that right now, which isn't really true because you can still get on well, I mean, you pay with your time. You pay your time to that line, a lot of times. That's true. But potentially you could get a fast pass on and off peak. Right. You could get a Genie plus pass or whatever it's called down. But I think what people are frustrated about this again is that once again, people who are staying on property have first dibs on those lightning passes. And let's be honest, if you've got the coins to stay on property, you've got the coins then to wake up and buy out a bunch of lightning lane passes for all the most important rides. Which I think people are rightfully frustrated by. We've had this problem over the last few years with them snapping up all the fast passes for everything else. And then they also give them the option of getting the lightning lane passes for rise of the resistance, which is historically the most difficult ride for anyone to get on ever. I've never seen such a kerfuffle about a single ride in my life. They've had to implement an entirely new system just to get people on this ride. Fully true. And yeah, I do think that the boarding passes will continue for years to come and probably get implemented on other rights. Well, they've already said that on ratatouille it's going to be implemented basically. They said that. Okay. I believe so, right? And that's even supposed to be have a much higher right capacity is like 2000 plus per hour. And they're even going to implement it for that. Which is, I mean, gosh, that's a whole other thing. I will say that this idea that you're not to pay 8 to $18 to get on the right of your choice after everything else is completely disgusting and I would expect nothing less from Disney. It's a terrible idea and of course you did it. No, here's the problem that I and you and I have had this on this podcast before, is if you are making brand new attractions that aren't able to handle capacity of your parks, you are not a good ride designer. Totally true. It is your fault that people can not get on rise of the resistance. It's not our fault. And the fact that we have to pay extra money to get on rise of the resistance because you didn't design it well. Right. Is not my favorite thing ever. Yeah. And like I get the idea that you're trying to create a new experience in a whole new way and that might be that may mean that it lends itself to that way specifically. But at the end of the day, you're running the biggest theme park in the world. So to do that, you know, to design it in such a way. And then for some reason, just for no dang good reason they'll do it. It just gets so upsetting. You're just like, why, why, why would you have done that? I find it nothing but insulting when they do such a thing. Well, what I think they're doing is creating scarcity because that's what everyone has discovered fuels people. I think in some cases it is. I think they found out that it fuels people's wallet to give you more money if you make it a very exclusive, limited edition kind of experience. So if you know that the only way you're getting on rise of the resistance during your vacation is to pay them an extra $75 for your whole group to get on it, then by gosh, you're going to do it because it's one of those experiences that you just don't get. And they've done it. They've turned it into that now. I just, there's no right on earth that is near a $75 for because it's literally most of these. I think that one has a longer ride time of like 17 minutes or something longer. But still, rides are very fleeting in time. They move by very quickly. And so the idea that you're paying for such a, you know, I don't know. It's just so now in the past, Disney was very well known for having their E ticket system, which you'd buy tickets for ABCDE rides, you know? And that was a thing. So I guess in that theory you would have paid for rights back in the back then as well. But you weren't paying a part take it at that price. Yeah. Your cost of entry was buying the book. Yeah. And then you could pick what you were going to go on to and how many times you wanted to go on. You got to pick it that way. So yeah, if you want to give me free admission I'm willing to start paying $17. I will pay you for it. No, don't give him that. No, because the way you and I go be like $35 for each ride now. You're like, oh, okay. 8 rides it is. It rides a year. I'm not spending all that money on rides. In general, this is a very, I think a very divisive kind of subject in the Disney community trying to figure out how we feel about this, there are people on extremes in both sides. Some people love it and think it's the greatest thing ever. People. I'm gonna say, I'm just not being shady, but rich people. People that have a lot of money like, sure. I'll gladly pay for, you know, more money to get on to rides, right? And then you have people that are not wealthy or have large families or whatever the situation is going, wait a minute. Now I get a lesser experience because I am not, I don't have the funds to just pay you for everything. Definitely not an affordable experience in any way. But that does make me sad. A little bit. That makes me sad that there are families who save sometimes for years to be able to go to the parks. And now either they're going to have to save for a few more years or they're going to have to just have a lesser experience. That's sad to me. Fully true. I still remain somewhat hopeful with all of the announcements that it's going to improve the experience and that it's going to remain it's going to make your experience a little bit better. I hope so. I think that it could potentially if what they're saying is true that, you know, if it really does direct you into such a way that you're like, oh, I didn't know that this experience was here, and it is a good, like I can just knock this out real fast. Sure. You know, this is gonna be great. And yeah, I didn't know that they served this pretzel right here, you know, and that kind of thing. Like that would be fantastic to learn those kinds of things. And maybe, you know, enhance the experience that way and hopefully our fast pass experience of lord is going to get much, much better because I would be happily paid $20, $15 to. And by the way, we don't have to pay the fastpass every time you go. Maybe you only do it like once or twice a year that you're really like, this is the day that we're going to knock out rides. We are doing rides. Today it's a ride day. Yeah. Tomorrow.

"In its infancy. Like it hadn't been out for very long, so not a lot of people knew what it was. Yeah, it was like the wiki came out. We went down there. Was it that? It was literally that quick. And at Disneyland you were still getting paper fast passes at that point where you had to go to a machine, put your park ticket in, it would spit out a paper ticket to tell you what time to go back to the attraction. And you had to present that at the attraction. You know, it was it was a little bit more of a labored service. Oh, the quaint old days. So much wasted paper honestly. What did they do with all those cards after they were done with them? They just collected them and then went through them away. Hopefully recycled. Who knows what they bags and bags of recycled fast passes? But with the max pass, literally that day, we were we would get in line for pirates. And make a fast pass for haunted mansion. As soon as we got off pirates, our fast pass was ready for a haunted mansion. So we'd go and scan into haunted mansion, and while we were standing in line for haunted mansion, get a fast pass to the next attraction. And we would get off haunted mansion and go directly to that traction and make a fast pass while we were standing in line for that attraction. Like legitimately, I've never ridden so many rides in my life as that first day with max pass. Yeah. It was great. And it was a busy day. It was a very busy day. So to get on that many rides, it was amazing. We literally didn't have a break in our schedule until like 6 o'clock at night. It finally was like, we have to stop and eat. Yeah. I'm dehydrated. I'm like dragging myself on my elbows trying to get to the next ride. Can we stop for just a minute? It was great. Yeah, the glory days didn't live very much longer after that than people got a wind of how to actually use the system properly. And it was never the same again. It went back to normal. Right. And that's kind of what Jeannie plus is. For a base rate for everybody in your party. So they say $20 for Disneyland and 15 for Disney World, I'm not sure why it's so much less at Disney World. Do you have any idea why there would be less at Disney World? Great question, right? Yeah. Who can even say, maybe I don't have no idea why it's less. I know that they've kept at maybe they're keeping it higher. They said it's because they wanted to be in line with what pricing was prior to on max pass, which escalated to the point that it was already $20 a day. Okay. If I had a guess, I think it has a lot more to do with the fact that locals go to Disneyland more frequently than you know those in Florida. Yeah. And so I would say that's the biggest reason why. Okay. So for that price for each individual member of your party, you now get the ability to book fast passes on your phone. And that's just from what I understand. It's basically max pass, except it's only one at a time, correct? Right? Yeah, you log on, you book a book a ride and when you're that right window opens up again or you get into line for that next ride, then it sounds like you can book your next one. Just like we did before. Now I do have to say that for Disney World. The way that they had done it in the past, back when they had fast passes before the pandemic and the shutdown and everything else. Was that if you were staying on property, you were allowed to log in to Disney 60 days before your vacation and you could book up to three fast passes 60 days in advance. If you were not staying on property, you then had to if you're not staying on property then you could only have you had to do it 30 days in advance, which basically meant you were left with moments, the figment, right, right? Yeah. I don't know we're left with the ones that you don't really need a fast pass. I don't know how many 9 45 p.m. figment. What's it called? Journey into imagination, your imagination with figments. Still with figment. Yeah. We booked so many fast passes, which by the way, when you show up that late at night, everybody's watching getting ready for the nighttime shows in Epcot. So it's legitimately a walk on and so there is zero reason to have a fast pass for. And literally the people working figment are like, what are you doing here? Oh, look, it's a fast pass for now. The walk on people literally get on quicker than you do because you have to stop the scan your fast pass. Yeah. It's hilarious. But anyway, that's what we were left with in the past so essentially, if you weren't staying on property for in the past, you had no fast passes. And only having three per day for us was, you know, it was a bit of a letdown. Well, you had a rolling force. So if you could get all three of your fast passes done early enough in the day, then you could book another one. And when to use that one book another one. So it kind of became that after. Yeah. But it was definitely the thing that I dislike about this system is that you really, they have no space for spontaneity in that kind of program. You can't system right. Yeah, you can't run into friends and be like, hey, that's awesome. We should all go get on this ride together because everyone's like, well, we already have a fast pass book for this. And you're like, oh, well, we have a fast pass. But so I guess we're just not hanging out. Which is kind of sad. But in general, it really does work out better for people who are staying on property. For sure. Back then it did. Even then I heard a lot of complaints about in order to get good fast passes. You would have to be sure to wake up at the break of dawn of whenever it was at Disney was allowing you to book that past because if you had different time zone issues and stuff, right? You have to you would have to remember that it was that time zone of probably easting train zone. You have to set a alarm. Yeah. And if you're coming from Europe, I would imagine then that it's in the middle of the day, but if you're coming from the West Coast and it's literally the first thing in the morning in order to book passes and it would turn into a lottery system of sorts that you're just basically like, let's hope we can get past this for two months from now, you know. Well, and I made this comment the other day, but Disney has become a competitive sport. Legitimately, you have to train yourself to have a good day at Disney. You have to get up really early. Back when they were doing fast passes or boarding groups for rise of the resistance. You had to be inside the park gates at 7 15 a.m. to start trying to get on to boarding groups for that ride. Yeah. So that means that people were getting up at 5 o'clock in the morning to get to the gates at 6 to try to get through the lines before 7 15 inside and then everyone's just standing in the entrance trying to make boarding groups. And then, you know, you're you're more Disney obsessed friends probably knew all sorts of tips and tricks O Dodge this. If you're trying to get here, go through this shop because it opens up on the other side. Like it's turned into like a like a sport or totally making a patch out says Disney Disney by new competitive. Well, because even just getting to rides at rope drop is a competitive sport, there are people's speed walking, flat out running, trying to get to things before everybody else. And it's just it's turned into a little bit of a more aggressive setup than I think people originally thought it would be. Very true. But speaking of competitive sports, they're also offering this lightning lane situation. What are your thoughts on lightning lane? So lightning lane is the third highest level of it that between one and two rice per park. They're allowing during peak periods that you can buy the fast pass essentially during that time period. If you're willing to if you want to pay to skip the line on that day..

"Know what I love most about rivers is you can't step in the same river twice. Ah, because it's constantly moving and always changing. Is that one? So close, yes, yes. I thought I'd throw a little poke on us in there today just for the fun of it. 'cause it's a Wednesday and Wednesday on Wednesdays we wear pink and talk about Disney, right? Totally that. It's very that. That was what we're doing. Yeah. We're totally stepping in rivers and Colin a pink. Yeah. Because Disney, Disney has been having fun, putting out information in such this week that feels important to talk about. Legitimately, right? What's funny is that literally we stopped recording our last episode. And I instantly looked online and saw that they had started discussing this subject that we're going to talk about today. And I was like, oh, well, if we would have waited another ten seconds, maybe I would have seen this before we went on. But now we've had a week to digest and think, and now we can talk about it like adults, right? Our recording had an even exported yet and the news broke. And you're like, do you always make it look dumb? We don't know what we're talking about. They do that. They do. Podcasters is everybody. But yeah, we're moving podcasts. We're done. Of course, we're talking about what everybody's talking about, which is everyone seemed to have rubbed the lamp and gotten a Genie that wants to charge you money. You get three wishes. They all include dollar signs. They all cost you. Disney Jeannie. Had been conjectured a long time ago before the pandemic that they were thinking they were starting up this kind of program. Do you remember I was talking about this before? Yeah. And to be fair, Disney Genie, the actual app, the extension of the Disney experience app is free. And basically what it is is your own Disney expert to help you plan your day around a Disney park. For those of you that don't have Ryan there with you right side, walking you through each turn by turning direction. When you don't have me and my perfectly sculpted two finger Disney point, you have the Disney Channel. You have a Disney Genie. Second best thing. So this part of the app literally it asks you what kind of things you want to do. The kinds of things that you're interested in. And we'll plan out a day for you. And it does do things that I think Disney fanatics have been doing for a long time. They'll say, okay, earlier in the morning, these kinds of attractions are less less busy. So you can get these out of the way earlier in the morning. If you don't care about the parade, we can go on this ride during the parade because it pulls a lot of people to the parade. You know, this is a better time to go eat lunch than this time because more people are eating lunch at this time. You know, it's that kind of thing that people that have been to Disney a lot kind of already know the ins and out of. Right. And now it gives more people access to that kind of information without having to have been there lots. Right. Well, even when we go, you know, 25 days in a year or whatever, there's still you're constantly learning new things and things are ever changing and ever adapting. Right. So it's impossible to know as much as Disney already does. So they have access to wait times and fast pass information and things like that that you would never have. So it's easier for the app to say, oh, just as a heads up, this ride doesn't have very much going on right now. You know? If you felt like riding it now, it's a good idea. I tell you what, though, the first time that it directs me to like river journey the river, you know, the Navi river journey. And we have to wait in line for two and a half hours. Like the first time that happens, we'll be like the moment that I'm like, Jeannie, you done don't know what you're talking about. I'm subscribing. I'm downloading this app. Drop my microphone. Yeah, I think there are certain situations where the reason that I'm not too keen on it is because I know they're going to use it as a way to try to push people into things. You know, they're like, gosh, sure, it's hot outside. Why don't you go buy a nice refreshing Coke at this location? You know, and it feel like it's going to turn into something like that. I mean, how many people are going to be told to go see great moments with Abraham Lincoln, you know what I mean? It's really hot outside. You should really go through one man's dream the story of Walt Disney. You know, I would do that one. I mean, it's super air conditioned. Like legitimately super air conditioned. We have done that more times than you'll ever know. Yeah, we literally go in there and see the same thing every time and we're like, oh, it's a truly Andrews. In the voice of Julie Andrews, yes. I think it's an interesting thing and I think it will work out great for people like I said who maybe haven't been enough times to kind of know those sort of things. Yeah. It kind of closes the gap. When it comes to Disney experts versus maybe new Disney folks. Which I think is nice. Everyone deserves to have a good experience at Disney, I think. Yeah, and I guess nothing says you have to do it, right? To do that. You can always just do something else. So I just wonder if it'll be really useful for people who maybe aren't native English speakers that it will give them more information in their native language so that they can understand better and enjoy the park more. That is such a great point. Like if we went to Shanghai, Disney or something like that would be fantastic to have something like that. Absolutely. It's totally like walk you through the experience in English, so we would know what was going on because we don't speak. Yeah, because they do say on there that they have like informational audio tour kind of things. All right. Which would be really interesting to hear what kind of stuff they have on there. So it would be awesome for people like I said who aren't native English speakers to be able to really appreciate things that maybe they wouldn't know otherwise. That's such a great point. They've also built into the app a lot of the compliance that is needed for people that have disabilities and different things they're able to book experiences through the app as well, which is going to be a huge plus for them. Sure. So that's fantastic. That makes me very happy. So these are all things that we like about Genie, right? We're moving into Genie plus now. Which is different. Right? That's what we have to start spending money. That's where the money comes in. Anyone that's been at Disneyland for the last few years might be aware of max pass, which is something that they did at Disneyland in California adventure for a few years. It's been going on for a few years, right? Yeah. Oh, absolutely. And basically, it is a paid fastpass app. Where each person in your party pays a certain amount. And then you can make fast passes on your phone. And the first time we did it, it was fairly.

"Now it is weird that this is kind of the first time that they're using the same process since old school paper fast passes. It's the first time they've been aligned since then man. Don't you miss those paper fast passes those were fun member when that mean that was a frigging thrill real. You had one person year family. Who's like the designated fast pass holder. Well running up to the kiosk in you know. Oh can we get it. What time is it going to spit out. Ooh i remember what my last thought was broaching an hour so we gotta stop. Wow where does guest recovery fallen. This guest recovery is the term for like if a ride breaks down or if you had a bad experience where a lot of times incentivize you with a fast pass in the form of guests recovery. How does that work into this. If you are a nonpaying. Genie plus person and you get stuck on. I bet they still give it to you. You think i think yes because coming from someone with no customer service background like me. I feel like that's one of the easiest things that they can give you there. They don't want to give you money right. They don't wanna have to refund anything they don't want him to pay for anything There they probably want to avoid giving you money but they can give you back time. Which i feel like is what people would probably be the biggest complaint like. Oh well i sat here for forty five minutes. Think of all that. If things i could be doing the fastest way that they can make that up for you is to say you know. We'll give you this now. I don't i think when they give you that fast pass quote unquote lightning round whenever lightning I think it would probably just be for the generic fifteen dollar ones. I don't think they would give it to you for something like a mine. Unless that's the ride that you broke down on. But i think that's just the fastest way that they can make you happy. Okay you wasted forty five minutes. Look if i give you this lightning line it you'll make it up and you can carry on your day like i'm so sorry but i don't think they'll give you the the guns the big boys which they kind of do now when they give you a guest recovery for animal kingdom. Unless you're on fight a passage you can't ride vita passage Oh i feel like we're leaving here with more questions than answers. We definitely hash them. Things out. I feel completely devastated now though that my idea of disneyland was false. That's okay. i'll recover. You'll rebuilt i will. I will rebuild with this new genie up. I'm excited just to try it to see like what it plans for me. I feel like it could almost be a game like ooh. Can you guess my favorite rides really. Can you make my perfect day for me. Like what are you going to suggest to. You know that. I hate you know cosmic rays or are these other things like what'd you just say. He was just an example. Pete safari okay. Please suggest pizza safari i. I'm i think that could just be fun to play with when it comes up with. But i think my biggest takeaways. You gotta have good data. You don't have good data. None of this works so. I hope they've got that part figured out. You need a data engineer. I have minimal experience. But i wanna come on and give it a shot and i guess that's about it but we are interested in what you think. Though find us on social media send us a message and let us know we just wanna talk about it with people. Yeah because right. Now we've just been talking to each other about it for the duration of this episode. Plus some i'm sure it will dominate the conversation for the rest. Probably so thank you guys so much for listening. We will be back on monday. We're going to do storytelling on carousel of progress. We've been putting that one off as they like. It's kind of a big deal. I know it's one of those. You've gotta nail it so the no pressure or anything we will give it our best shot. We hope you will join us for that.

That's when you get annoyed thought was going to be ten minutes and was twenty minutes. They're quoting thirty in its twenty. You feel happy you feel like you got more bang for your buck. Does disney know that or do they have bad data. I would guess that they probably know it. I think they know it for the same reason that you just said. They want people to be happy. That other part of that. I think is you know. I don't know how to word this. But like are we going to zig when the app tells you zag they say go to pirates.

Route Planning With Parker Woodward

"Everybody's so this is one thing that i'm sure a lot of people are wondering i've always wondered. I feel like. I'm going to learn a ton today. I'm really looking forward to it. But you know when you do something like use google maps or ways or any of these even people who remember mapquest. You generates this path and that is just really fascinating if you think about it i mean there's an unbelievable amount like enormous network of roads right and manages to figure out how to do that. It takes into account like speed limits and it just seems like there's extraordinary complexity there and we're actually going to not only cover that but even take it to the next level where in this case you know what if you were driving a ups truck or something and you have a whole host plays you have to go to or even. Maybe you have a list of aaron genie to run you know. How do we actually do that efficiently. And i think it's a fascinating fascinating. Topic rented dive deep into it. So lucky that we have parker woodward here. Who is the route expert at route for me as a ton of experience in this field so thanks for coming on show parker. Thanks jason. Don't worry people still actually use mapquest really always wondering actually so so it exists right. Well i've seen it exists. People are still using it and people are using a host of other things to plan the routes. We had a customer who actually plan the routes on cocktail napkins at happy hour. So we've had we've seen a little bit of everything. Oh nice very cool. that's awesome. So yeah how did you. I think this is going to be really interesting. Because you know route expert is a title that seems to be one that like is out of reach for a lot of people but a lot of people don't see. What is the path that i can take from.

"Las vegas until his own gangland slaying in one thousand nine hundred eighty six. He had the coldest is i've ever seen. In my stores i got used to collins bellagio by st nand. Tony the ant. He hated that and it sometimes left me at the receiving end of laterals nasty stirs and his menacing fits of anger. This would be the time to remember. Frank collado the tough cold blooded hitman for spalato and the focus of season one of mobbed up kaleida died in august at age. Eighty one a couple of months after the first season of the podcast wrapped up back in one thousand nine hundred eighty two. I remember seeing him as cool as it could be laughing. It up with spalato lieutenants in a favourite mob hangout. The very night before the fed's announced he had decided to cooperate. Against a latro years later. I interviewed kaleida after he left witness protection he was as candid direct in season. One as he was when i interviewed him his story never changed. When you're ordered to kill somebody you better do it. If you thought they're going to kill you they wouldn't come anti kill salt so if they thought you would say no. You know what i mean. I didn't like this jerry listener guy. He had that weasel effect. You know like. I don't i just don't like him like i didn't like saul. I emptied that revolver in his ad then he stole his alive. So had we had a reloaded. Fortunately we brought he brought extra. Bullets together was women and I am committed it all this ad. Then he finally died remember. James tamer aladdin's entertainment director. He turned out to be a lot more than that at the casino. He was a convicted bank. Robber who federal authorities alleged was overseeing. The detroit mobs hidden interests. Tamer had business ties to aladdin owners. As early as nineteen seventy he also had been the subject of illegal gambling related investigations in other states. Tamer would not have been able to get a gaming licence in nevada because of his criminal record in alleged associations but as entertainment director. He didn't need one but hicks attack. Nevada deputy attorney general in the late nineteen seventies remembers tamer. Rosenthal set the example for some of these other guys in vegas at work you know didn't really want to be licensed. And so lo and behold james tamer shows out as the director of the latin showroom director of entertainment for the alleged showroom. But you know there was a lot of evidence that he had. He had a sorority to comp casino. Customers he you know had a lot of authority there and in clearly involved in administration and operations of because know the teamsters funded hotel expansion at the aladdin by no small surprise was plagued by construction overruns. That put the resort on the brink of bankruptcy. They're also an alleged kickback scheme covered by the feds that the fraud of the pension fund. More to come on that eventually. The labor department filed suit to stop the pension fund from loaning money to casinos and the fbi kept pushing forward with the help of court approved. Wiretaps agents listen to.

"Nasr you're new to the show. But i'm gonna put you right in the white hot spotlight of telling our audience. All of our fresh is out there. What is allowed in two thousand and nineteen about so twenty nineteen version of aladdin. A street thiefs named aladdin. He meets this beautiful young girl. Who in reality is the gorgeous princess jasmine but he doesn't know it at the time he sort of becomes desperate to win her heart and fall in love with her and while he's sort of on that quest he comes across a lamp and genie and he becomes really close friends that this powerful genie and both of them soon find out that. The evil sorcerer. Jaffar is also wanting this lamp so that he can take over the kingdom and like neighboring towns. I think that's the best way. I can describe.

That's obvious determination. Focus and patients most successful business. People who have been more abuses. I'd be there are many obstacles. one has to overcome great something new. You know especially if you are the first thing that feed over. The cost of my life is great. Tree comes owning the factory business which is a former finance. Each company was unique in the first of its kind in the seed amount of projection. One gets from new ideas. These enormous one doesn't believe in his or her idea. More than one hundred percent simply wants work in any new ideas. I you have to educate the market which is very hard are always suspicious affinity new then you have to persuade the investors.

Houston it's always about enforce. There's a lot that i want to focus on throughout this entire interview fire nation. But the one thing i wanna pull out about. What a alger said is patients. I mean all of them were brilliant but patients. It is such as something that today. I see more than ever people. Just don't have an seems like the younger generation. The less patience. I have so many people all the time coming up and saying. Hey john like. I've been doing this for two months and i'm not seeing any returns. Think any success and like it's been two months. Where's your patients. Where's your persistence. Wears your you gotta keep at that thing. Fire nation so in doing some research on ual. I saw that you were chosen to be a mentor at the harvard.

"genie" Discussed on The Twilight Zone Podcast

"Who who expect them who. I'm gonna genie lamp. That's who aladdin magic the whole bit jeannie. Jeannie you look like genie. Wardrobe make retains say you see a couple of thousand years ago. I used to wear those crazy balloon long. Johns with do with the wild turban. But let me tell you something. Jack george jack george as long as you healthy today. We dress like the times except for these velvety mccormack's muck looks if if you are the genie then i must be the master of the lamp. Big deal master of lamp. Alright you got yourself a free wish this to be three wishes There's the rub. There used to be three wishes. But let me tell you something jack george. You don't want to change your name. the scene used to include three wishes but the recipients were abused privileged. So we had to cut down so Give it a little dot. Give me a call doing a favor. Will you sleep on it. So the genie of the lamp is played by jock albertson who we have seen before in the twilight zone in the episode the shelter. So i won't really go into his bio but at this point in the episode about fourteen minutes in. I have to say that the comedy is in quite grab me but then we get to this scene. And i think the interplay between jack albertson and howard morris is pretty good you know. I'm not rolling around on the floor laughing but we have two guys here who obviously no comedy raising up some very questionable material at least a little bit but like i said we're only fourteen minutes in and we have thirty five minutes left to go so if this episode is may daughter of these two actors verbally bouncing off each other. Even if every joke doesn't hit. Then i'm thinking maybe this could turn out to be okay and the seems to be at least an effort to be unique with the whole genie thing instead of getting three wishes that don't rotate out like planned. This time george only gets one wish and has to spend some time deciding what that wish is going to be and the genie even gives him some pointers. On what kinds of wishes don't really turn out so while it's a new kind of take on the whole gene anything. The problem is this now means that the genie isn't gonna stick around jack. Albertson's appearance is really. Just a three minute cameo so. The highlight of the episode for me is now gone and strangely mon- grams junior in unlocking the door to a television classic details a possibility that this scene might be reshot now. This is something that. I've not really come across in the twilight zone before in looking into the kind of behind the scene stoff so please excuse my language when i read this for martin grams. Junior writes a letter to rod sailing from ralph w nelson dated november twenty nine thousand nine hundred sixty to verify that they would intentions to reshoot the genie appearance and disappearance sequence in this episode and then he quotes from the letter that the reason is because of the fager like performance of the actor who played genie so i thought about leaving that out put it is what it is so i read it and i thought to myself. Is this misprint. Because martin grams. Junior doesn't really elaborate on the comment or add any fair the commentary on so there's nothing fair than not line itself on that slayer being used now. I know that where it has been used differently. In england for many years in england it was actually a food for many years and then obviously slang wet part of a slang word for the cigarette. I have looked up. The american use of the way to see whether there is some historical kind of evolution of it because sometimes over time where it's become used for different things and they were originally intended so i thought maybe that is the case bought. It seems to me from what i can tell that where has generally in the last hundred years or so has always been used in the unfortunate way that it is now so without any more information it seems that we have to take the comment at face value and it is disappointing that they show that we see is taking such great strides in or the ways certainly wasn't immune to santa amount of prejudice behind the scenes. I guess although. I can't excuse i suppose everything is a janney. Thin is a step you take one step forward the still many steps to go so i guess we have to just file that on the eufor unfortunate move on from it but it seems that when the episode was viewed as a whole there was very little point in spending the extra money to reshoot the scene because this scene was the least of the episodes problems so despite the episode trying to kind of put a different spin on the whole. Genie think what we actually get is probably quite typical of genie stories. But instead of george getting wishes and regretting that he's dunham he imagines what he should wish for and despite the genie warning him not to wish for love the first thing he imagines is the object of his affection from work and being a famous movie star and him being husbands. Make up georgie. You wouldn't want to play my final scene with smeared lipstick which no hike. I guess not final. Same it's been a long grind. They said you could have a couple of weeks off but that was six months ago. We could take our honeymoon now if you want to. That is want to georgie. Makeup all day beauty creams song. They don't pay a movie star to look ugly baby. Don't you think i'm worth waiting for sure puts.

"genie" Discussed on The Zest

"Immigrants to connect with their ancestors and pass on traditions for a method of preserving long forgotten memories. Genie Mill grump is a Catholic born cuban-american in Miami which raised her roots back over hundreds of years to search out a story about her Jewish ancestors. Spanish inquisition, an old family recipes she's the author of the Cookbook recipes from my fifteen grandmothers. There is a lot to your story but in the interest of time I'm just going to recap a little bit of what was in your memoir, your family escape from Castro's Cuba to Miami in nineteen sixty, you were raised as a devout Catholic. But even so you always felt a connection to Judaism. And you ended up converting. To Judaism in fact, even Orthodox Judaism. along the way you married at age seventeen. you divorced you raise two children as a single mom and then you married you ended up marrying a Jewish man. And eventually you started doing genealogy. And you did not know that your background was. Jewish. Tell me a little bit about that. Correct and by the way you did that. So well, you know you could sit in in my zooms now and don't my story introduce you. Yes that would be amazing. So yes. So after several years of marriage I started digging into the family background of because my grandmother had left me some jewelry that was like started David and my mom had insisted that she be buried immediately and so she and my my grandfather were first classes and when I went back to Spain when back to Portugal. Years Maybe for me to get a direct maternal lineage initially to fifteen forty five when I wrote my first my fifteen grandmothers but not really being able to fully document their Jewishness until I got back to fourteen five. Wendy two grandmothers in a row pre inquisition Spain. Portugal. And that is when I found about forty five relatives of had been judged in. Burlington F. in the inquisition. These were the Jews in Spain that. Converted ostensibly, they converted because of the Spanish inquisition but many of them continued to practice Judaism in secret which meant carrying on. The traditions and the kosher food traditions. The kosher food traditions are strong because when I read the inquisition judgments what people were sent to the prison for a lot of it has to do with food. They would eat beans on a day that they weren't allowed to or they would eating meat for example, on a time that they couldn't like let's say the conflicts don't eat meat during lent snow that would be eating meat during lent, and then they say this one is not Catholic and they'd take 'em in or they would be eating meat on a Friday back in the day you remember. Only fish was eaten on Friday if you were Catholic. So a lot of what I was seeing was a food related was how they were being brought in to the inquisition Gaols, which was incredible. Something that was interesting that you wrote about was that grew up you came from Cuba to Miami that Catholicism went back a long time. But you talk about the fact that there were these customs especially in the kitchen with your maternal grandmother. That she called. Family Customs but you realize later were actually based on Jewish dietary law. Correct than those very strong because my grandmother had five grand children four of us were granddaughters. So it was me that I guess from a very young age. I started questioning everything and I mean young like six and I was just questioning. So my grandmother saw that in me. Said, they were Jews, but she taught me for example, It's very forbidden for US enjoy strategy law to consume any kind of blood. And Checking the eggs in a separate container before you put them into a recipe is like that is it Kosher WanNa one and she taught me to do that at a very young age I used to bake with our another thing. That is really So incredible was We take a little bit of the dough when we make more than five pounds of recipe and we'd burn it, and until it just burns to a crisp and that is done today by Jewish women when they make Hala it's a moment that you're giving like an offering of a little piece of the dough and then you say Special Prayers and heavens you're supposed to be opened. For these prayers when you you take the time to do my grandmother taught me to do this without the prayers take the dog put an aluminum foil, put it in the back of the oven and burn it and checking the send the vegetables for insect where forbidden to eat any kind of an insect and men my grandmother would. Come out and weed out, and you know she a Lotta switched art which is very buggy. and. So I was heart all this and I just didn't put together even though I was learning about the Jewish faith I just did not. And so the checking for the insects as you say, it was a little it was more than just washing making sure that you got the sand out of the leaks. It was more than washing the vegetables. There was this. Obsessive nece that she taught you about about looking for insects. And as you said it just. Didn't really make sense in the context of nobody else is doing this right exactly. I didn't know because if you're eleven or twelve and you're in your grandma's kitchen and she's Listen this is how we do it in our family. You're like, okay, you know let me learn and then when you get older and you start quoting around other, they're going like, what would you big? So. Yeah and my mom never they never said anything to Jimmy my mom denied. Having any documents? I think years later I found that a lot of those documents that took me ten eleven twelve years to find mom had the originals. You know we moved her out of the house because she had Alzheimer's and took her to a memory care center, and that's when I started opening drawers in suitcases and going. Oh my gosh. What is going on here documents that I paid a genealogist to dig out of files. So my dad's family and my mom's family went from the inquisition. Spain. In Portugal Lisbon, Portugal and then down to canary. Islands inquisition, and then Cuba meaning from both sides. This these grandmothers were yelling. And screaming..
