A Funny Byproduct Of Having To Buy Fewer Products
"About our fancy frame TV. Over the last couple of weeks on the PODCAST and I guess also on the blog. If you've seen our last couple blog post, we've been talking about how we've been pleasantly surprised that the furniture we moved down here for the most part fit very well and naturally into our new home. Yeah, it is kind of amazing to say. We showed a bunch of stuff in the. The pod I mean we did have measurements for rooms, and we did have an idea of what we're going to wear, so we weren't just like willy. Nilly putting a bunch of things in the pod, but we knew as we loaded the pod like there is going to be a margin for error I'm sure we'll get there and something won't work the way we thought it. It would because there's really nothing like being in a space and moving furniture around like you can try to do that in your head. When you're not in the space, it's really hard to land on the right. You Know Group of objects in the right. Lay Out I think anytime. We've moved houses. There's been this process where like some of your old furniture doesn't fit in. In the new house, for whatever reason like maybe it's because of the scale of the peace or the exact dimensions, or even a style, but you know you have these pieces that just don't land and work I think we expected that issue with at least some of the things that we brought down, but again we're grateful. Most everything has pretty much worked as it is. Is Yeah were even things John was like I. don't even know why we're bringing this. And then we brought it, and like played a very important role like remember. We talked about those bookcases that we're using in the kitchen and they have like so much storage. They're basically like extending our cabinets using as a pantry fought to leave those in richmond or sell them in Richmond. Richmond because I didn't think we had a place for them. And Sherry was right and the table in the kitchen. There's like a round white table that was like a game table in our old house in the bonus room and John was like I can't picture for people being able to eat here. I can't picture it fitting in the kitchen and it like probably won't live. Live there forever, but it is so good for now and if it hadn't made the POD, we'd be in trouble once again. Sherry was right so I think it's been nice because we didn't have this kind of like panic buying mode when we got here. We're like we don't have a kitchen table shot for one real quick and pretty much the only things that we have. Have had to buy at least the big furniture pieces we've had to buy have been things we knew we'd have to get because we didn't bring them with us. Like our beds like we had to get an outdoor dining table and other side note as we were packing the dining table with outdoor dining table in Richmond, and it was routed in the legs fell off. So we basically bought the same sized table. It was a different finish in a different color, and it works perfectly like I'm actually really glad that one did fall apart in Richmond. Has that one was like seven years old and disbar gone, and even informed the decision like that one was would, and it was rotten, so we got a metal and resin one. That will not, so you know some things were just dumb. Luck. Something's were strategy, but whatever it is that led us to where we are. We both kind of expected to land me like okay so now we need a rug dresser aside table six lamps five. Cheers. But you know what I'm saying I thought we'd land and have this list of like huge furniture items we needed, and it's like all we really needed. Where the things we knew we needed off the bat like beds. Yeah I, think that's the point here is that we've been grateful that we haven't had to go on like this sudden shopping spree and the other thing I wanted. Wanted to point out that was interesting. As we are shopping for one of the other items. We knew we'd have to get which has been window coverings, because as you have probably seen on instagram. We've been using packing blankets. It's very swanky at Casa Peter Sick. Let me tell you packing blankets. They disintegrate into like a black soot, and it's all over your window sills, it's. It's all over your floors, but we have started to receive some of the curtains that we bought, and it highlighted something interesting about downsizing and going to a smaller house that I think we consciously have known, but this particular purchase was like a good case study to help us quantify one of the benefits of living in a smaller space and furnishing a smaller space I think. Think things that are more obvious to everyone is like Oh to clean and less to pay to heat and cool like we said that over and over again. It's like less maintenance if I only have one bathroom I, worry less about maintaining four showers, enforcing them leaking and all that stuff, but I think this is one of those things where it's like when we say it. But it's just a thing we consciously knew, but then it was really interesting to see the actual numbers I. Actually don't know all the numbers. John is going to reveal them to me. Yeah, so I actually went back and tallied how many curtain panels and blinds we had to buy for our Richmond House, which as you probably heard? Her say is more than twice the size of the house. We are now living in Florida. So obviously had more windows to cover. Yeah, I can't wait to hear the numbers. John was like their staggering. I was staggered, so keep in mind. We didn't have curtains on every window so like not in the kitchens, bathrooms or anything like that and having a dining room, either yes, so this is not representative all the windows, so we had actually more blinds, and we had curtains, but we had twenty four curtain panels in Richmond. House K Twenty four, and I should point out. Out In recent months before we left, we were starting to like double up. Some of the curtain panels to make them look thicker right. Some have always been double in our living room. That was four panels instead of to on that big picture window in our office. We had a big picture window with four pounds instead of two. Did you just count those to? Double them because I couldn't remember what was doubled, so the twenty four number is probably closer to like thirty or thirty two. Yeah, that's what I would guess. We also have thirty blinds throughout. The houses were also. Roughly sixty two different window coverings. That Jack's yeah I mean. It was a lot I. Remember hanging those. It took us forever and I remember buying them, and it was so much money. I remember the blinds. We were like Oh. Do we need lines? Backpedal real quick and when we got home depot and saw the total. Yes, so again thirty ish curtain panels thirty blinds. Are you ready for the Florida numbers? I can't wait in Florida instead of thirty. We only need eight curtain panels, eight curtain panels versus thirty well, there's the saving instead of thirty blinds. We need five blinds. Five lines is my favorite and. And we're being very specific about these lines, guys. No one has researched blinds more than us. We will share what we pick when it arrives and we're sure we like it I. Don't want to jinx it. Hence all the packing blankets because we're taking our time and I also just for fun also looked at the number of curtain panels in blinds that. That we had to buy for the Beach House and the duplex. That's going to be like a million. A million I mean feel like we're. It's going to be close because it was three kids nine bathrooms like it was six seven, eight nine hundred ten bedrooms like it's a lot of juices well, and it was also fifty two curtain panels O and And Forty two blinds, no regrets right. We're glad we had curtains and blinds, but it sure is nice. When what did you say it's eight and five here in Florida compared to when we tally all of those previous homes that we sold eighty two curtain panels and seventy two blinds is so insane. Yes, and we ironed in hand

The Good Pirate
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host crumb today. I'm continuing my investigation into the myths and mysteries surrounding pirates in one individual in particular because not all pirates were that evil that raped and pillaged their way up various villages along the coast. One such individual who was a pirate was Francis Drake. He was born in fifteen forty. Two by fifteen seventy six. He was the queen's favor and was directed to sail to a secret location one. She only disclosed to her inner circle. The difficulty in determining the location isn't honest return after circumnavigating the world upon his arrival back in England the coin hat all his maps and shipped logs locked up to this day. Few of these documents have been released despite. This history has revealed that Spain had blocked. Most of the trade routes England had used and she had found one end of the fabled northwest passage and the drake was to establish the other end meanwhile amateur to story and Robert Ward thinks. Drake was on a secret mission to find the northwest passage. And that's why he was sailing so far up the west coast. The idea is drake sailed up the coast. Until he found something he thought was the northwest passage perhaps Strait of Juan de Fuca but drake's bad located not far from point Reyes California and fourteen other sides claimed to be where in fifteen seventy nine drake spent sixty eight days now. He spent those sixty eight days because he needed a place to make repairs. Which involves something called careening? This is where the ship was pulled completely out of the water so that our whole be made free of worms barnacles the location of California's raise for the sixty eight day. Stay and repair of the ship are based on the area code. Drakes Bay fit in maps description of the bay where he stayed and a page from a ship's log that listed the side as thirty eight degrees north latitude and a brass plaque. The description of Indians found there but the plaque was declared a fake in nineteen thirty six and the fact that the Indians lived off. Acorns was never mentioned. And that the shape of the Bay but Oregon's whale cove also fits the shape of the bay on the map but the Indians were described as living in huts that were partially below ground. When the University of Oregon Examining area in the cove they found that just as described on the page of the ship slog the remnants of a native American hut partly underground near the side. Number of English coins were found that dated back to just before. Drake set sail. Also there was a document a firsthand description based on the observation of eight of his crew. That stated that they had stopped at forty four degrees north latitude. It would seem that a all the sites that claim to be were drake spent that summer of sixty eight days. Only the organ location forty four degrees north latitude which is exactly well. Co has the most real physical evidence of his visit. If you're driving up the Oregon coast be sure to stop at the town of Depot. Bake and enjoy the small town hospitality. Drive another mile and a half to whale cove and try to imagine what it was like for Sir Francis. Drake back in fifteen seventy nine but the debate. Over the location of Drake's North American stop rages on and despite evidence pointing at Oregon's well only put to rest when England releases all drake's maps and logs from his trip around the

The Kidneys Connection to Our Emotions
"Today. We're going to go off on a different subject here about kidneys. You guys haven't heard us discuss kidneys very much in the past episodes but we thought with everyone being a little bit on the fearful angry side we would address kidneys because they very much have to do with those emotions. So the name of this show today is called the kidneys connection to our emotions. And we're going to tell you a little bit about what to look for when you might suspect it your kidneys what you can take to help. Get them better and we also have a question at the end that we're going to answer. So Dr Lewis. Could you tell us why you have chosen to discuss the kidney connection today on our podcast? Well Yeah I'd love to. I chose to do this because Janet wanted to. That's right that is true. You know I think the main thing is is because the throughout this Kobe stuff that I think is you know crock. Crap but You know we. We've been told things so long so loud. You know you can tell a lie long enough and loud enough people begin to believe it and so saying stay safe Co home. Stay home be safe in. Its implying that US people like me. That think it's a crock that get out or sinful and where. The enemy were being brainwashed. Folks you've got to think past that and I'm absolutely amazed at the people that choose. It's a choice. They choose to cower down in fear and and we've noticed that people are more agitated more irritated and that's me because I can't believe that idiocy that's going on like trying to get into home depot and his lap. Geez there's one hundred and fifty feet between everybody but you're worried about how many people walking in the store and one of the reasons that we as a society besides the mental spiritual they're throwing at us is because we're eating incorrectly. We're drinking to excess with when it talks when you talk about alcohol. Excessive to me is very little but Done tight much and we get irritated because we're putting our her kidneys under stress. One of the worst things you can do is have high blood pressure that you don't take care of either medically or naturally or both because at high blood pressure can really calls all kinds of problems with the kidney so please please please take care your kidneys. It it's incredible is super important but kidneys are their damaged from all sorts of things like certain drugs are really really tough on the kidneys and you have to watch that and you know. Have your doctor that puts you on the medications to monitor that but heavy metals our society full of heavy metals. It's full of solvents. It's of a chemotherapy. Does that Different Benham's snake insect spider and I went through a lot of that after God only knows how many Brown recluse spider about gotten and it will wreak havoc on your kid. He's poisonous mushrooms. I don't know anything about that because I don't experiment with those mushrooms that grow on cow patties like some people. I know Do it because it's a psychedelic psychogenic psychotic or something Pesticides and we know we've got pesticides all over the. It's really really really common in our food. Which is a sad thing and herbicides and people say but I'm not around our besides York Janet. I was coming to work two days ago. And there's the Texas highway department spraying herbicides. Oh Good God but you know us a goat to eat but we have done that to ourselves with the poisons in our society and renal failure and not even failure but when you put your kidneys in stress it can add to things like congestive heart failure diabetes or diabetes slash Metabolic Syndrome. Can put pressure on your kidneys. It can go both ways and lock said before the chronic hypertension a bad thing liver disease liberal ever you got. The liber is like a woman. The Lib rain happy. Ain't nobody happy. And then you have diseases. The autoimmune diseases like Lupus and sickle cell. Things like that There are people that have genetic tendencies the have issues with Kidneys like poly cystic. Disease and kidneys. Are They Tennessee to have mineral accumulations that she usually calcium? And we see that into your analysis. It'll say crystals calcium oxalate. Now you know. We can't make any claims about supplements but if you're having calcium oxalate stones that usually means you have a lack of magnesium or potassium to offset because we get minerals that out of balance. And that's the problem with our society mentally and physically because we get out of balance we forget to laugh. We forget to you know have a good time and I just love people that come in here and I'll go hug their neck and watch them freak out or I'll shake their hand and it's like you know we've been doing this for tens of thousands of years and it's not an issue in. Don't you enjoy the HUG and s? You're actually I do I. I like the way you social distance dot because I don't social distance. That's one of the things we're missing. Now is the social interaction. That is way way more important than any other thing now again. I I said disappear. Podcast AGO that they're scripture somewhere to Bible. I forget probably proverbs but is a wiseman foresees danger and takes precautions K. And I think that's a smart thing to do but the Bible also says in Titus very plainly. God didn't give you a spirit of fear so quick fear crap You talk about stones oxalate downs in nineteen seventy four when you say stoned rattling talking about oxalate stones. The ones that are GONNA be urine. Just what would those manifest in normal? Layman's terms that someone might understand that. They may have a kidney problem. Kidney Stones you know very sharp pain in the back and you know This is because one sweetheart of a sweetheart patients or no the different parts of magnesium and we're getting people that say well. I have this symptom and they want me to diagnose Office set a symptoms everytime time Janet. I give a list I say. Be careful though because these same symptoms can go with a different organ. Be careful how you diagnose off of just symptoms but one of the things That you can bet your bottom dollar as you're deficient in magnesium so I had this sweetheart patients they can you explain the different types of magnesium. I'm saying that because there's plenty of research says if you take magnesium it buffers The bad side effects of calcium or calcium oxalate stones that that's research that and it says be six. Pp and potassium so let's talk about. Magnesium purchased a little while because magnesium can take the anxiety irritability that we are feeling and. I think is obvious in my voice. It's like oh good. God quit despair crap but if you take magnesium there's actually research says magnesium if it's the right form can work even better. I'll stress anxiety. Depression era ability and anger than many many many drugs and again we can't make claims that but the research says it so let's talk just briefly about the different types of magnesium if you poop once a day or less unietd magnesium citrate now. We have that for people. They say about once as normal permissiveness common. But it's not normal. He got three trains in three trains. Out Is Janet says about three meals and three meals out so citrate because it was bound citric acid. And that's a pretty large molecule. And that's why you don't get enough in a multi vitamin or multi-mineral. Because it's a large molecule. Takes up too much. Real Estate It's a mild laxative. And so it's it's a great choice. Then you've got magnesium oxide folks it. They're putting oxide in your multi-donor multi-mineral throw it away. Because that's the cheap crap that yes it works as a laxative. But you don't really absorb it where you can absorb more the cows of magnesium citrate then you got the magnesium glassy night and it's a pretty gentle form that's what I'd generally suggest for people that have hypertension It slower going through the system. It absorbs a little bit less water. So you end up. Absorbing more of it It glasses night. Actually it's Connected to an Amino. Acid glossing blessing is incredibly incredibly incredibly important amino acid to help form neurotransmitters and calms your nerves.

I got on the phone and called a friend of mine. I have a few people that are on the favorites list. In the beginning my favorites list on my iphone was was my family. Pretty much family do many friends on there. Just might just my family kids things like that. And then Over time I recognize calling some folks And checking in on a more regular basis. I'M GONNA ask you to. My favorite list was a big deal to get on my favorite. This it's like being on my friends list on facebook. It's not too many over there. I keep kind of lean got picky about that stuff. Big Your friends have to support me and I have to support them. Anything in between is really not worth dealing with so called my friend. He lives in Connecticut to travel the world. We talk occasionally. He's a he's a coachie coach. Kinda guy always on the road always traveling always studying now. He's getting sparked by talking to him. We we often will save the problems. We'll solve the problems of the world and save the world in one one phone call. It's pretty easy so I called up actually to see if we could solve the problems of the world over the course of this phone call. I thought why not you know it's going to a slower than I would like so maybe I can actually put her mind to it and say we can do so. I called him up and he picked up the phone. I asked why said Wolf. Hey what are you doing to save the world? Yeah somewhat joking. But his answer really didn't surprise me. He said well literally. I only watch twenty minutes of TV a day. That's at twenty minutes of news a day. I can stay in touch. They'd give kind of goes he rift on me said because I find that if I watch any more than that I lose my productivity. It's impossible to watch that news and a have any any sense of what you really want to do. I'm with him on that by the way and he says I write. I get my work. Done helped my kids with school in general doing pretty much everything to stay grounded. Keyword there grounded. You're looking at picked up the phone. I knew I was at that point. He's busy I'm part of that day. Right he said how how about you what are you doing. Well told him that he was looking at decided to call them in the first place. Because I'm kind of in the same spot I don't initiate anything. That's GonNa bring drama into my life particularly with my drama. My life is drama right now. All of our lives drama right now and I'm pretty much the same except playing with dogs and kids. Alpacas will I refuse to let this crazy carousel of life? That most folks writing right now to become my right of choice not going to happen. You talk for a while. Actually talked for two hours covered every conceivable topic. You could imagine now. I don't think we actually saved the world. I'm really not sure yet. Haven't seen the result. May it may happen. It may happen because you want you start thinking and talking and it gets out kind of into the ether in the universe before you know it's out there and then people start hearing what you've been thinking and they talk taking action which you will you know how all that works right just a cool conversation putting some thoughts and thoughts very powerful things and they get out to the most powerful thing in the world or your thoughts and when you put them out there my goodness you start acting differently and people people start reacting to you differently. Don't they it Kinda feel something? You don't really know exactly what's going on but then something's going on so they. Kinda WANNA hang out a little bit or maybe an idea POPs in their head in the middle of the night in a dream. They don't even know why who knew. It was because I decided to interrupt my friends day and call him and see how he was doing and just chat about how to how solve all the problems of the world now will admit back in the day about twenty five years ago. I used to do it over a bunch of beer. I'd go into a city and meet a friend so it's got to have some beer and save the world that never worked back then. This one may have a little bit more power so I don't think we did but but I think we are. Certainly working on on. Saving ourselves are we. I reaching out by having that conversation. Are You doing that? Or you're reaching out to people around your those conversations it's crazy how this crazy agenda-driven world that we're in right now it's crazy how we are isolated in a way that is blocking us again at the same time we're able to reach out and plug into the simple joys of life. Are you doing that right now? Are you finding a way to plug into the things that just makes sense to you? Are you working with those kids? Are you baking cookies? Are you working in the yard? I've been to home depot recently. I'll tell you what there's a lot of y'all work in the yard because you can't check out at home depot y'all by all the flowers all those wheelbarrows and everything are all out there.

"Home Depot, I heard you mentioned that you do not like plastic curved heat deflectors on heating vents. What's the reason? No, it's dangerous. No, she I events word. I have window coverings. Yeah. We talked about this a couple of weeks ago those curve deflectors, you know, that they're magnetized and they stick on your heat vents, and they blow the heat out of the room. Those are not those of kind of obviate the design of the heating system in the first place when we design a heating system, you'll notice that the heat fencer under the windows in the patio door. We we wash the warm air from the furnace over the cold, exterior surfaces, and that's intentional. That's where the heat losses from the house. And if you frustrate that by putting the plastic heat deflectors in then you blow the heat out into the middle of the room, and you have that cold surface, and it radiates heat from your body to the cold surface patio door window or wall, or whatever. Feel colder. And when you feel colder you tend to turn up the thermostat. So we want more even comfort and even temperatures around the rooms of your house. So I don't like those plastic deflectors, but you indicated an exception. The exception is if you have drapes down over the heat fence, and they balloon outward when the heat when the furnace runs, I you know, I understand you need deflectors in that case. But that's isolated case for the most part except for window, coverings, or drapes. I do not like the the plastic deflectors.

"Our Twitter handle is at market foolery. And if you wanna drop us a question on either one of those platforms, please do so question from Ian. Grainger in Bristol, the one in England, not the one in Connecticut for you. Yes. Fan fans, Ian, Wright's what happens to an S and P five hundred ETF like V USA when it company leaves a new one joins. And he refers to the recent reports that tesla is being either as a potential addition to the S and P five hundred index so Enes asking does this update right away. Or is it the next quarter all of the two long? Didn't listen answer to that it happens right away? So you can turn off the radio. So actually. There have been the SNP changes a lot and found some commentary from senior members this appeal like Dr David Blitzer who listen two thousand fourteen was the managing director and the chairman of the index committee. So he's kind of in charge of the whole thing. They. They consider a lot of things when they're adding a company to the to the index, and it's not strictly the five hundred largest companies in the US. It's not that the company just kind of like, Home Depot management said. It's directionally. Correct. But it's inaccurate. Right. So I mean, the requirements to be in the SMP a certain size of four to five billion is usually the lower end of it has to have enough liquidity has to have a minimum of float of about fifty percent of the shares available for trading and have a short story about that. In just a second profitability balance sheet of part of an emerging industry that's becoming an important part of the market and so on. So what happens is the day before the new company comes in and replace a somebody who's going out either because they went bankrupt. They got purchased they've going private or they just dropped to be too small. Those are several reasons why company might go out. Indexes and ETF's index funds in ETF that are tracking the SMP tend to buy a lot of the new company, in fact, that the vast majority I looked at a couple of examples, for instance, Rollins the guys behind the organ man for control. A company happen to own shares of they were they joined on October first and the day the trading day before that was September twenty eighth twenty five point six million shares traded hands when the normal range is a million or less. Okay. So that's more. Yeah. So and Fortinet the same thing they joined on October eleventh on the tenth. They traded thirty three point four million shares when their ranges one to two and a half million on a normal day. So. So it happens right away. They don't they don't wait to the end of the quarter and. Getting back to the story about the minimum float, it's an actively managed index has a committee of members of from standard and Poor's figuring out who's going to be on why they should be added, and what companies should drop, but for instance, Blitzer related a interesting story in two thousand fourteen after Lehman filed for bankruptcy. AIG was being bailed out by the US treasury and the treasury bought like ninety percent of the shares. Okay. Well, that left only ten percent for the float. And they have the fifty percent rule, and they said, well what's going to happen? If we drop edgy from the index right in the middle of this horrible mess that the market is seeing and that's going to send a horrible signal. So they suspended that rule for edgy. And a few years later after the treasury had sold the shares back to the public in recovered. And and so the fifty percent rule came back into affect for them. You mentioned that one of the requirements. For addition the S and P five hundred is profitability. And I think that as much as anything is what people are watching with respect to tesla because it's not just profitability. It's the most recent five quarters. Yeah. There's that and also going concern. So they're not toured that Tesla's going to go out of business or bankrupt anytime soon, so but as far as I know is just rumors. I'm not sure what we're that stands. Before we wrap up just want to say, thank you to Stanley, not just for his service to our country..

"There were a bunch of cities on that list that I sort of looked at and thought well that makes sense to me, and I'll just sit like one one that was on the list of twenty right off the bat that I thought there's no way it's going. Be there was Los Angeles. And that's not a knock on Los Angeles. But I just thought well if their headquarters is in Seattle, I'm I don't see what the advantages are to putting another huge office on the west coast. There were there worse as you mentioned. Dallas was a city. I looked at it. And I thought well that would make sense Atlanta would make a lot of sense Chicago. Yeah. Many of those would make sense mammy. I'm not not quite so sure about. Newark New Jersey, but that's basically just outside as close to New York so near two or three in the running high crossed Miami off the list right off the bat because I thought Jeff Bezos is someone who is building a or having built for him a ten thousand year clock. I don't think someone who's building a ten thousand year clock is buying beach front property is putting Jarvis in Miami. No, what do you bought was a twenty three million dollar home in the DC area? Yeah. Let's move onto some earnings and Home Depot shares are down a little bit today. And I think you and I are both scratching our heads wondering why? Because this third quarter report for Home Depot, it was a strong quarter, and they raised revenue gyns for the full fiscal year. They raised revenue they've raised earnings guidance for the full fiscal they raised calms guidance for the full year. So real quick numbers. They got a five point one percent increase in revenue to about twenty six billion dollars. Just barely ahead of the streets. Estimates calms was four point eight with five point four percent in the US, which is nice and solid. Net. Income was up. Thirty two percent at two fifty one share that beats the streets guests of to twenty-six, quite handily. And then they raised sales calms guidance and diluted EPS growth. For the full for the rest of the year. One more quarter. And the shares are down what three percent or so. Yeah. And it's not like this style for for as as great as it is done over the last say ten years twenty eighteen has not been a great year for shares of Home Depot, no down two percent or something up up through last night before their earnings release. Maybe it had some has something to do with the housing market. I mean, we've had stories over and over September saw whereas the number five percents something like that drop in new home starts. And every and they'd revised downward August numbers. I do know that a good number of the analysts the first four for sure. And then a fifth one later on out of the dozen or so on the call talked about housing on the call and management was saying look is these were selling stuff and people. Blur moving up in in price points and in two newer products. And. And even in the bad areas like LA where it's really expensive to live their sales are growing. So whether it's higher housing prices driving people to improve their homes, or or I don't know. But they're they're models says, and they were they're very upfront are directionally, correct. But inaccurate model is telling us that sales are going to continue to grow. So we raised guidance. So depending on how granular investors wanna get with a retailer. Yes, we talk about revenue and earnings and that sort of things, but even when you go couple levels deeper with home depot's latest quarter, and you look at things like sales per square foot overall transactions the average ticket price. Yeah. All of those were up at Tikka was up three and a half percent. So I'm I'm wondering if at least some of the if not skepticism than some of the questions about Home Depot from these analysts were focused now. Not just on the individual consumers like people like you and me, but on the contractor side of the business because that's that's a healthy chunk of a home depot's business. I don't off the top of my head. No, what percentage that is. But I know it is a not insignificant chunk of their business. Now, I think that actually might be the larger part of their business, but they were saying contractors are growing their online businesses growing of what are they say forty?.

We will start with the big news of the day. And I think it's I don't think it's just big news in our neck of the woods. I think this is the big business news of the day. And that is Amazon officially announcing that it has selected New York City and northern Virginia. Specifically in northern Virginia. Crystal city for its to new offices. I personally will not be referred to them as headquarters if they just picked one city I and put fifty thousand employees, I'd say fine. That's that's your second headquarters, but I'm not going. It's like two two new large offices. And they also announced a. An operations base that they're opening in natural with about five thousand point good for national. No Seattle still remains the headquarters of Amazon. So yeah. Despite this whereas. Whereas. Long Island city in queens and crystal city just up the metro few stops mayor. So the Al why to? The earlier discussion was it'd be down in Austin or Dallas area right for the second one. Crystal city was pretty much chosen, and that would let Amazon have some exposure out in more conservative country and kind of balance their political leanings. But now they've got Seattle the the left coast. Right. And they've got the DC area northern Virginia, which is very all very liberal leaning and New York City again liberal leaning. So maybe they're tripling down on that. I don't know. You know, it's so now this process is over, and I think it would be worth are taking a minute or two to just sort of look back in and ask among other things. How do we think this went? And by the way, I I noticed on Twitter right before we started taping the phrase national landing was was trending on Twitter. And I thought well, what is that? And that's Amazon is apparently branding its location in northern Virginia as national landing. They're not even hearing renaming parts of the respectfully they're not here. And also, no one who lives in this area is gonna refer to it as national leading crystal city, and that's fine. There's nothing wrong with that. But now that we've gone through this whole process. What impressions are you left with? Because one impression I had when the whole thing started just about a year ago when they announced here are the twenty cities on our list. My first reaction then remains to this day, which was. That's way, too many cities when they when they came out and said we've we've come up with our finalists, and it's twenty cities. I looked at that list and thought I can cross at least five off immediately..

Twelve percent this morning. This is the parent company of coach doing neither do we need to tell people who tapestry as this came. I had forgotten that they were coached. It's recent. If I always like to remind people, it's the same way with booking holdings. We're book. It's like, remember we used to call them Priceline. Now there. Booking holdings, tapestry parent company of coached, Kate Spade, and Stuart Weitzman the company formerly known Justice coach, good fourth-quarter, decent for. Yeah, especially when cruddy had been sort of the norm. Right? So yes, although I do like probably you and probably other people when they did announce the name change where we're changing from coach tapestry. I did have more than a couple of chuckles at that and I may have possibly mocked them. I in retrospect, I think it's the right move. I just think it's the right move. It's a different business now as the problem in and it's so instead of just sort of managing coach and trying to find the trends there. And I guess a more limited, what's the word I'm looking for collection of items. Now you're trying to be a warehouse or a small warehouse of brands that all have to do that. And so there are some benefits to that. You can do sort of sort of like this quarter. You can have Kate Spade comps, you know, downers Kate Spade down three percent and coach up two percent. And so you know, things balance. Each other out at also means there's just more. More balls in the air that you're juggling. And so I think it was a good quarter. The margins look pretty good. Hopefully they can keep the the Kate Spade acquisition rolling along Stuart Weitzman looks like it's doing okay. I have to admit, I had no idea to Weizman even sold until I did a search, and you can see on the screen of my computer, the rest of you can't, but you know, it's an audio podcast. Yeah, that's, that's geez l. no, that's that's a different model, but she's in in this. If you go to the Stuart Weitzman homepage, you might have to shield the computer from your kids because it's a little bit racy for somebody who sell an eight hundred dollar suede boots. I was going to race. They're selling boots. Yeah, yeah, but it looks like a good quarter. So hopefully things continue to roll for them. Luxury items have been doing well, and you might say, how do you know that while I follow a few, you know, watchmakers like Movado has been doing while of late and other. So people who sell expensive stuff seem to be doing fairly well. I'm not gonna say whether that doesn't anything to do with tax policy like that. Well. But, but to that point, I think I think we've seen this not just what sort of luxury retailers, but even sort of discretionary income companies, and I put Dave and Buster's in that category, right? I think they're doing well. Well, I, I mean on balance over the last five years, I think they have, but they're also the ones that I look at that I think when the economy turns south and at some point it will turn south for enough people that I think the the luxury stocks are maybe the first to suffer. You stop buying Stuart Weitzman boots and you go to Dave and Buster's instead could only use stop going to Dave and Buster's to, oh, jeez, that's that would be a bummer because they see that right restaurants stocks in general, are are kind of suffering right now. So there's a funny thing going on in the economy where a lot of the luxury brands are doing pretty well. There's so much competition for low end retail, we've seen just bricks and mortar retailers getting killed. There's a whole bunch of reasons for that, but you know, kind of lower. Restaurants, chew. As we mentioned, you know, doing okay, but not great and stock suffering as a result. It's it's, it's tough out there businesses tough. Definitely not easy. Our final story I'm sort of tempted to break into applause here for Southwest Airlines because Southwest Airlines announced that it is revised its policy on emotional support animals.

So red fin for those who don't know is Zillow, sort of like search and ads for the most part, right. Red fin is really operating a nationwide brokerage predicated on search, but then they're hook, they're real hook is that they are going to save you a bunch of money because they have they offer a lower commission so you can save six figures on the sell selling or buying a house. But. So they had like a thirty percent revenue increase for the quarter, you'd think that would be great. But red fin on like Salaam gonna say is fairly candid about what's going on in the business, and they said, listen, the market. The last few weeks has been bad. I think they said while we one okay week in three crummy weeks. Good for them for saying that, but the stock was down or early the day of the earnings. And I looked and I read the report and I thought, oh, that's not so bad. It was down. I don't know, five, six, seven percent. And then on Monday and that it had flopped like twenty two percent. Everyone freaked out at the end of the day. So I think that this has ramifications for both Zillow for some reason didn't mention this. I don't know if they didn't see it or they just thought maybe we won't talk about it as well as red fin. It's it's going to, I think it's going to be a problem for the near term on until at least we get some clarity right now. The Redfin has been talking. For a couple of quarters about house housing supply being really low, and they are having a tough time being agents the themselves. They know this a little bit better than maybe Zillow having a tough time helping people find houses to buy. And so they've kind of doubled down on costs or putting fewer agents are putting fewer customers per agent and so on. And so this is going to be a tough business for a while, at least until we see what happens with housing, their housing prices are high and markets like ours and some others. And I guess apparently shoppers have finally said, we're not paying that well, and is, as you said, I mean, the the quarter itself for Redmond was good, and if they had maybe not had a conference call at all, the stock wouldn't have taken the hit. But it's, you said Glenn Kelman who's the CEO. Wasn't really pulling any punches, and and just said, very matter of factly look, buyer demand is waning. It's just that simple. Yeah, and I have a lot of respect for them. I own the shares I've recommended them and part of the reason is they are not big on hype. They when they go into a new business, they've been buying homes, they started the business small. They said, we're gonna make it a full time business, but it's going to still say small. They don't make a whole bunch of pie in the sky. Total addressable market estimates that kind. I got out of the Zillow call that just make me cringe and say, you're just feel kind of you feel gross to me. I feel like I'm talking to a us Carlson car salesman here. I just don't trust the management Zillow. I don't trust what they're saying Redfin seems more trustworthy to me. Well, and and we talked about this last week and on the show. I think one of the things working against Zillow is they made that acquisition of mortgage lenders of America, their track record on acquisitions. Isn't great. So I think part of what we saw with the sell off was Zillow was. A similar reaction which is essentially we don't trust your ability to make acquisitions works. And the reason we don't trust it is because you haven't really done a great job of it to this point doesn't mean you can't in the future..

"I'm Chris hill with me in studio for the first time in a long time. Thank goodness. He's back set, Jason, good to see you. Hello, I I was thinking of doing the Lenny and squeaky the squeaky. Hello. But I didn't know if I could pull it off and if I could have anyone would recognize it. That's that's definitely skewing old for our audience. We've got. We've got some earnings. We've got retail. We've got real estate's. Let's start with Home Depot which had a rough spring, but that's real estate and retail rate. They're exactly summers looking good for Home Depot. Second quarter profits came in higher than expected. Overall sales just north of thirty billion dollars and their same store sales. Impressive. Yeah. And it's odd the the real estate market isn't so great. And so a lot of the home improvement, especially the smaller outfits seemed to to be a little bit more directly linked that market Home Depot just seems to be able to keep. Selling stuff in any climate, at least for the past few years, you got a comparable sales store figure something like up eight percent and the guidance for the full year is going to be like five point, three percent. That's pretty strong. A lot of companies aren't doing that right now and Home Depot Kors is big enough to actually take advantage of that. The other thing that I haven't heard the call yet that is probably still working really well for them. We've talked about this is the online sale. They're one of the, I won't say few, but they're one of the better retailers out there equipped nowadays to to do the internet and the app thing. In other words, order order stuff from Home Depot online, rather than going to Amazon. And I think part of that strength is that I believe not too long ago. They said that about forty or forty, six percent of their online sales were actually in store pickup, which to me makes sense. There's a lot of things you don't want to really wait for in the mail necessarily, but you don't really. Be wanna walk around the Home Depot picking out. So you make the order and then you show up a few hours later and just drop it in your car. It's a lot easier. So these are that's a really smart way for them to expand their business. And you know, another billion or so bucks a year and sales that helps well, and they've, I've done a little bit of online shopping with them and I can tell you just from my experience they've improved, they have worked to improve the online shopping experience just in terms of because they're so many things that they sell. So just in being able to more quickly help people like me, whittled down the choices and find what you're actually looking for. I think I'm actually going to make an online purchase from them and the next week or so. I need a small band saw and like getting in-store seems like a pain. It's kinda heavy and not sure exactly which I need a separate blade for it. I can take care of some of those problems online. Just show up, throw it in the trunk of the car and leave. One of the thing I'm gonna call out from their quarter was the average ticket, which is something we don't talk about all that often. With retail or restaurants, but that's a metric that's important, and it's basically the average person in this quarter. What are they spending? And in the case of Home Depot, their average ticket sale ticked up a little bit to sixty six dollars. Yeah. And of course, if you can get that average ticket up, you have, there's a little less pressure to bring people in through the door. It's best if you can do both, but it's always good to see average ticket going up because if you're bringing in more people, but it's because you are, you know, throwing doorbuster sales or something you're tickets go down then that can hit you and your profitability. So they're just doing a great job. They really are in the stock again, they they had a rough spring. We saw that with with a lot in this space and the stock is still up about twenty six percent over the last year the when you look at the stock, does it look, expensive review. This thing still got plenty of room to run, especially given how they're operate, would thought get. I wouldn't have thunk it. I should have thunk it. I would..
