"Like the swagger though damage. That's a great job. He's a good kid okay very good dominate intrigue. I mean i think this is the point. That bo's made before is that. I'm not against josh. Allen is the people who seem to want to pretend josh something that he's not because he seems like a funny guy. he's a good kid or there coach and of course the referees. It all seems fine. Like i'm all for showboat and taunton ball spin and that's all fine and fun to me. I think tyreek hill did a backflip before winning end zone. I love that stuff. But you just have to understand. That josh allen is not going to be home no matter how hard you pray. What do you got the whole time here. I watched that clip. And i had a very familiar feeling. Sweep over me. And i know now. What watching that reminded me of that. Time eddie murphy was on saturday night live and he dressed up like white man and he was just walking around seeing what it was like to be white and he went into that place and they had the newspaper and do is like take it. Just take it. That's what that felt like. So this is what happened with. Wife owes get caught doing something stupid football that caused your team. Fifteen yards right. Delicate explanation from the rep to the coach and then even board delicate explanation from the coast to the player again. This is not josh allens fault. It's you put us in a situation where we have to remind jaw. It's fairly amazing. It is fair dummy. Like the coaches in the refs were awfully nights about a fifteen yard dump penalty. That was awfully gentle. I mean i guess bows right however they did throw the flag so were apologizing for it. I'm so sorry. We had two people saw otherwise we would have covered it up for him. It was a textbook taunting call. It wasn't about the spin is that he got up into dudes face. I am okay with that being a penalty because otherwise it'd be a lot more getting hit in the face. i was going to be gonzalo taught. My father called me. Dan so i wouldn't have to put up with any of that stuff. You guys put up with it as we discussed the had a tv show that you were trying to sell to tito's who worked by.

"Finally the makers of Mountain Dew announced yesterday that they have developed a cocktail for seafood chain red lobster called the do Rita. So remember that's not a Margarita that's a do Brita, your hosing out of the back of your Uber No? Gross Tom. So what we're about forty five days from the election roughly something like that and interesting Article The New York Times today. About Democrats across the country worried that Joe Biden's a little too low key. Events or a little small and a little soft and little quiet into. Hey again, you get the ramp up the enthusiasm here a little bit and a Lotta your swing states the polls tightened according to the, New York Times and you know they don't usually a traffic in this sort of talk right in fact, they probably are traffic in the sort of trafficking in this sort of talk because they agree in their wanting to send the message. Yeah. When are you going to start to get a little jazz ear here? They show a meeting in Michigan which he's. Meeting with. Auto workers. Well, it's him on a backyard with like four other people twenty feet apart I mean it's not exactly the enthusiasm of a big trump rally right and they're saying you know we're we're we're a little worried that you're not quite. You know I i. made a passing reference to that about an ago and and I'm glad you brought that up because in in longtime listeners the show know that I joe M I have I have some significant problems with trump he's. Just. He's so close to be so great, but it keeps screwing it up in my opinion. But it has. So I am not a full on trump honk when I say this. Having observed the country through the eyes of the media through your emails. I was at the San Diego boat flotilla for for trump slash. America. became. Aware of Laredo Texas. Had Thousands of cars in trump parade. As a fairly neutral observer, I will tell you. Pro Trump energy is exploding. It's electric it's coast to coast. Except for the blue cities obviously but it is people are vibrating with energy. People are barely even paying attention to the fact that you'll biden is running they just don't like trump and if it were if there were no mainstream media, if we were just observing the world through our own eyes and ears I, think you mean everybody would think trump is going to win big. Yeah. The conclusion really of the New York Times article is does hating trump get you across the finish line or does Joe Biden need to come up with something to cheer? That's basically their question and I guess we'll see you know Ron Paul Rans Dad used to get very enthusiastic crowds but there just weren't enough of them sometimes. Used need to get a have the bulk right bunch -solutely true. This is what I really wanted to get to, and you'll be surprised to hear me see say this but I think I can back it up with this piece in the New York Times one more quick note and then I'll give way to you but polls tightened up in virtually all of the swing states and the Washington Post even said Wisconsin the gap is now insignificant with four and a half percent margin of sampling air place it's just more or less time I, agree with Dan Coats in the New York Times today that this is the most important election of our lives a phrase I have mocked. And, Will Continue Bach But I would agree with him and not for the reasons you normally think every election. And you can go back at least a century I've seen the the placards before TV and radio. This is the most important election of our lives and you look back on them and it's really quite silly when you look back on them anybody was saying that and I think we'll feel the same way here. you know not that elections don't matter not that you know choosing one direction other doesn't matter but you know we we have the opportunity for some course correction within twenty four months. So it's it's not you know pick a direction and we'd go for twenty. Years, right that's one of the reasons why I think that's always overblown but. What Dan Coats former deny director who's wanting to put together a bipartisan panel to oversee the election he says, it's the most important election of our lives because it could invalidate the entire experiment if we do it. So badly a read what he wrote today and I grew them we often hear that the November election is the most consequential our in our lifetime, but the importance of the election is not which candidate or Party wins. Voters also faced the question of whether the American Democratic Experiment. One of the boldest political innovations in human history will survive. Our. Democracies enemies foreign domestic wants to concede in advance that are voting systems are faultier fraudulent that sinister conspiracies have distorted. The political will of the people that are public discourse has been perverted by the news media and social networks riddled with prejudice lies and ill-will that judicial institutions law enforcement and even national security twisted misused and misdirected to create anxiety anxiety and conflict not justice and social peace. If those are the results of this tumultuous election year, we are lost no matter which candidate wins I. Would agree with that whole hard. Wow. If we if we come out of this at the end, it's a close election and there's rioting in the streets and the media makes no effort to be fair at all and just tries to you know continue to drive a wedge in claim the other side is stealing it no matter which site is and whether they're stealing it or not Yeah. That's why it's the most important election our lifetime could we could the idea that anybody takes election seriously. Off that actually happened well, that's why we have to have a bipartisan heavy weight. Panel or something. Coming up with policies in in in ways to deal with an uncertain election and these people will make a joint statement at every step of the way and the fringe voices will not control the national conversation because Putin and chairman she. Are, are at the root of a lot of those extreme voices and they're trying to tear US apart in trying to make us hate each of it Nancy Pelosi and Donald. Trump both saying if the other side wins, they stole it, which is, which is the medicine. Is Not good now I'll read more from Dan Coats. Column. In The New York Times today again, he's trying to put together some Senators Democrats senators some people that we would trust that are gonNA take a look at this starting election night and oversee it so that we can at least believe there's some bipartisan buying and making fair no American and certainly no American leader should want such an outcome total destruction sewing salt in the earth of America's democracy is a catastrophe well, beyond simple defeat and poison for generations an electoral victory on these terms would be no victory at all the judgement of history reflecting on the death of enlightened democracy would be harsh. He's taking this pretty serious I'd say. And I don't think he's a I. Don't think hyperbole I think he's right. Yeah. Like I keep saying I didn't come up with David French came up with it in the dispatch it's the titanic iceberg dead ahead we all see it It is. This is where we're headed. It's almost certainly going to be the case. Yeah. Trump's going to be in the lead on election night, and then the lead is GonNa slip away as they count the ballots whether he wins or not I don't know. But then both sides are going to claim it was rigged and it's just riding in the streets it's going to be insane. I think the bipartisan panel ought to get to work quickly, and maybe the first thing they do is point out in virtually every election. On average about twenty, percent twenty, five percent of mail in ballots are discarded because they're messed up because they're not the way they ought to be get that word out now. So that when somebody says. Forty percent of the bouts in.

Jack's question about why are the media platforms go and so sky is falling and silencing anybody who wants to. Ask a devil's advocate question. which brings us to the opinion piece. Finally about the big ten, I just want to read some of it to you because. It's just so you know, I'm sorry I'm fixated Jack Use the term Pearl clutching earlier and it's just so perfect.

About Science Medicine Safety Etcetera Etcetera then came Wednesday the darkest day in big ten sports history. The day the vaunted conference cave joked it got scared. It became the SEC. Just. As the big ten was looking smarter by the day is Cova nineteen outbreaks popped up at Michigan State Wisconsin Maryland and again nobody really getting sick. announcing postponements in certain cases, the league presidents reverse themselves and stared at school to the football programs right into the teeth of what are predicted to be some of the worst stays the pandemic in October and November. Narrate. Yeah. No I know I'm tired of the the worst days are just around the corner. Talk that have been listening to for six months. I watched a video last night was sent to us by one of our brilliant listeners at Armstrong and getty dot com. You can email us anytime. That's fine. If it's something we ought to be talking about it was long but it was wonderful. It was if you were born in the year nineteen hundred. and. When you turn Eighteen World War One began twenty two million Dad Cetera et Cetera when you turned. And I'm missing one of them. But if you turn when you turn twenty nine, the global depression started with unemployment at x y. z then the global pandemic of the flu pandemic of nineteen eighteen, which killed how many million, sixty, million, hundred. Yeah and then when you turned. The thirty five, the Nazis took over Germany and began their sweep across Europe when you turn forty World War One zero, two began CETERA. Then the Korean War than the rest of it and you know with all due respect to the the awfulness of covid nineteen, the death. We're acting like we're the only generation history that's ever suffered that our lives are so incredibly precious. We can shut down the world and not even go to the trouble figuring out. Okay. How can we keep as many people say particularly vulnerable as many as possible and continue running the world we don't we're not even. Ask that question on facebook or youtube or they'll take down the video no earning or learning Paul. That's brilliant. Good. Why did I just think of that but that's a good. That's your own. Seems like Jack Happened thought that's I. Only say that because you always see you never have which I find hurtful because I think you. Know earning no learning. That's great. That's the best thing you've ever said boy. The Mike is attached to stand but unscrew it and drop it. September seventeenth twenty go. Gentleman. GonNa look up till. You are. The CDC Director? Said are better than a vaccine maybe we should talk about that at some point I think he's lost his mind. He lost his mustache I've seen from the picture Let's go from Whoville like I said, we got intentionally who Dora Ayla, that song we had. It takes the and Sean Watch that Social Dilemma Netflix, documentary We got a text about that. That's pretty good among other things on the way. Hey everybody. Today's episode is sponsored by the new Mazda C X thirty. So lately, we've been trying to do our part to be cautious and do what we can for public health. So we've been cooped up in the house a lot not a getting out a lot Robert. Is there anything you miss about the about the road trip or going on long drives? Well, I'd have to say there's there is something really cool about having a long drive. Hopefully, you know like an driving through the mountains or something in you get to really dive into a particular album. Experience it beginning to end while taking in the scenery also great time for the children to learn about metal machine music. So when miles gray and I drove the Mazda C X thirty from Palm Desert San Diego. I really enjoyed the scenery along the way and I feel like the car itself helped a lot with that like the interior of the car is crafted with what they call an essential EST approach. So while it's got a lot of features like in car Wi fi, you know vehicle status navigation displays etc. It really doesn't feel crammed with. Distracting lights in visual decoy and speaking of features. The thirty also has a really good factory soundsystem. They load the car up with some high definition sample tracks for us to try like we listen to Daft punk and that sounded great for everybody else if you want more information on Mazda and the first ever Mazda C X Thirty, you can find it online at Mazda USA dot com slash Iheart, or better yet. See it in. At a Mazda dealership near you. The Armstrong and getty show. Tell you what? I'm a pretty good player. Certain things. Make me great. For example, one time I was playing against New York. Knicks and I meant to free the loud and I see this girl walking down album. She looks like, Oh, my God is how the? Call a time out and go to the bench and said, how bears the Game Anybody Besides me and punchy you face having various here to watch we play the game get into. Is Ever had every time. I got the ball look make sure Howie was looking at me and I just destroyed a country you. Wherever. Hilarious. So that's That's shack explaining why he wouldn't have played as well in the bubble. Yeah. It would have been tougher for him because I'm good player but certain things make me great like Halle Berry's in the stands to watch me play. Nobody's shooting. But me Halle Berry's here to watch me play.

"Hardware being accessible and easy to work with the Raspberry Pi is accessible and easy to work with and I can have have just as much fun with that as I can as long making an old computer from the eighties I would agree with you on that. I'm I think I've spoken in the past on the show that I had a bit of an adventure making my own doorbell. Well, I could have just bought a bought a wireless doorbell off-the-shelf, but it was more fun to me to buy some electronic bits and plugged them into a Raspberry Pi zero and try and work out how to do all of the bits that you might gain. With a a smart doorbell but doing it myself and it's not only the accessibility of the hardware but also the accessibility of the software to run on it do all of the you know talking to the bits of electronics talking to the network plugging into Services, which will talk to your phone and things like that that's available and accessible and I'm not the sort of thing you can do with an old our cable and a soldering iron. I accept that new things can be fun. I'm not making a blanket statement the new stuff isn't Fun an old stuff is fun. But my assertion was month old stuff is inherently more fun. And I I I think part of it is that Nostalgia that thing that this rekindles the thought of you know me standing in a arcade putting temp. He's into into an old arcade machine in the darkness spending my pocket money and exhilaration of getting past level 3 on our type and log Having a few ten pence pieces left him in my pocket and yeah having an enjoyable time with my friends, it rekindles those memories and I don't think you get nostalgic when you make a doorbell you're right now unless you made a particularly ornate and classic doorbell and not something with a Raspberry Pi let me tell you about something that happened to me this week. I was reading a book on the BBC News website where the the headline said young people to blame for something something something and I thought I I thought that's not right. I don't think the song ends and I had to blame for that sort of thing. And then I then I read the article and and I read the the day of the age demographic that they were talking about and they were talking about me and my friends with Cricket live in L. So young person anymore is the reason perhaps that that we enjoy playing with all the things or get nostalgic from these older things which isn't available table. The new things we just old is what I'm getting at here. I think there's a part of that. I think there's this natural twenty to Thirty Year window between you having something and then having disposable income where you can play with that thing again ends. And so whatever it was twenty or thirty years ago, whether it was Etch-a-Sketch big track speaking spell cinco Spectrum, Commodore sixty-four, whatever it might be twenty or thirty years ago you once you get into that point of you get past the now I've started getting a career and I'm started earning money and you've got some disposable income. I think there's this natural tendency to look back and have that nostalgic memory which is why all of these recreated games consoles are so successful now because twenty or thirty years ago the people who are buying them are the people who would have been playing the man who brought up on those devices and that's why it's a it's an endless cycle because wage Next year, they'll be the N64 and then they'll be the rekindled we or whatever will be and and so I'll go on and on as those people who have this disposable income can look back and can re-buy the thing they suck as a kid and I I think it's that plus something else which is we have some disposable income. Now the Commodore sixty-four that I have rebuilt is the Commodore sixty-four that I would have wanted in the 1980s, but could never afford. You know, I have got all of the cartridges that add things like Network and modem support I have often get this I have Jewel seeds in my Commodore sixty-four which was beyond impossible to achieve back in the day unless you shelled out quite a significant amount of money. So I may go back and have the fun. I never could have like twenty God. How long ago is this? It's thirty years ago, right? It's not like it's not like you had No fun. It's not you lived cave as a kid. You did have fun. And absolutely and you're reliving that now and that's why I think old Tech is inherently more fun. It's because it's fun squared. You've got the fun of when you first experience this thing and now you get to redo it all over again. And so you've got double the fun. I don't disagree with that statement and I would be a hypocrite if I tried to because in recent months since about December last year, I have realized that with the exception of full size and driving games. I am not interested in contemporary gaming. I have far more fun and enjoyment out of the eight and sixteen bit games that I grew up with because wage they're very pick up and playable and put down the ball. You don't have to invest, you know, significant amount of time in them, but there is a technology that I have lots of fun with that song. Have I get practically zero application out of and it is very much based on modern technology and I like to Tinker with these may I offer training models that you can run on big fat gpus of the day and make animated, you know cartoon characters based on it looking at your face or body movements. So what have you and I have extraordinary amounts of fun messing around with that but I have no interest in the science behind it or you know, using it for anything sensible use cases, but I find it really good fun. I think it was there was a quote that I think is attributed to Douglas Adams where he said something up until the age like twenty everything is new and magical and from the age of like twenties or Thirty. Anything new is is something new you have to learn and then birth And after about the age of forty anything new is against the natural order of things like shouldn't exist. And I wonder if I'm very into that kind of Realm, you know, I'm slightly less interested in all this new song because it just feels wrong. It feels like against the natural order of things and maybe we should all go back to you know computers that were disconnected from the internet and cartridges where the game was held on a thing that you have in your hand and then you can plug in and when you turn it on the game instantly loaded and you didn't have zero day patches and you didn't have multi gigabyte downloads for your system just so that you could play a game the last game I bought you off and buying modern games. The last game I bought on Steam I played was two Point Hospital, which is a re-creation of Theme Hospital which is like a twenty-year-old game for the p c and so even the new games I'm buying are remakes of old games. I don't know. Maybe I'm broken. Maybe I'm just old like Mark says welcome to the club mark down. At that point, you know, every time I play a new driving game I suppose deep down. I'm looking for the same kind of exhilaration that I got the very first time I played outrun you to set the screen resolution to 3:20 by 160 and that's what it's not so much that but just that experience of playing out run for the very first time is right up there as of my biggest arcade hit them ever got of being wowed by something and I think to this day every time I play and you racing game I'm looking for that same kind of Rush as.

"Is called sparks joy, and it's about little a little thing. Upgrade a little something something that is making our lives happier right now, so mine is my new talk machine. It's actually not machine. Okay, so let me give you a little backstory. If. You follow on, instagram. You might have seen this, but my husband loves box fans and ever since a light sleeper. He's super light sleeper very very specific on how he wants to sleeping conditions. If it's too hot if it's too cold. If it's too bright, we would never go camping. We would never sleep outside now. Had just couldn't he? Couldn't do it like it doesn't an absolutely not There's been times when we stayed in like an AIRBNB or whatever where it was uncomfortable where he was like. We are leaving like he's all. He's an extremely light sleeper so this take that into context when you hear this next part, so he loves his box fan and I can't even tell you the number of times that we were in another city, and we were there by airplane, and we go to Walmart or target. Target and buy a box fan, just us in our hotel and then just leave it there when you leave. Because there's no way to bring it home because it's like he cannot sleep without it. Yeah, so it's a thing that's been bothering me for a while that I wanted to find a solution for and it's also just kind of a petty thing that bothers me is that Jeremy's side of the bed is by bedroom door and when you walk in and I just finished decorating our bedroom. And, that it's like this, you know box fan. kind of like killing the vibe. It makes me think of frazier in his debts share. Yeah, yeah, that's. You know modern eighties, apartment, or whatever and his dad's chair. I don't know I just think of that. Frazier all the time. Frazier is a big part of childhood's good show okay. So I have tried a couple of different sound machines and Okay, so the ones that are kids us, we can hear a little loop and I can hear to. We could both hear it, and once you hear it for the first time it will keep you up and you can't an hear it, and as you're listening for it. Right kind of you can't stop yourself. One sounded like a noise of baby, which was even more disturbing because we have a baby right now, right? Who cries a lot and you're already on high alert for that Noise Zach. So, yeah and we've just just got to the point where we're not using a baby monitor. So anyway I was looking for a sound machine alternative. That doesn't have a loop, and this is all that it needs to be i. was like bonus points? If it's cute bonus points of it's very small because I'd love to take it like have one that stays in our case at all times never comes out and we're never without it, 'cause. That's a thing that we've run into before like taking his extra trips and basically wasting time and money. Yeah, no, totally twice while to get these silly fans because yeah, it's just not good enough. It Out tells just use the bathroom fan, or whatever right so we found one. It's so cool, so we only tried. Three ordered the top three that the most people deemed me and one of them is an actual fan. It's called the Yoga Sleep. Dome and it looks like a sound machine. It's beautiful. It's really cumin. Lincoln in the show notes but it has. Has a fan inside of it, so there's absolutely no possibility of loop, which is the most important thing that we couldn't find before, and we've now slept with it for over a week and it's going great and I feel like we are actually read of the box fan forever. So does it sound like a fan? It sounds very similar to a town machine. Irfan! It sounds it doesn't. It sounds like a box fan? I guess okay. I kind of want to listen to it now, okay? Okay and then mine. I don't have as much backstory or anything. This is actually just kind of silly, but it does spark joy so I recently. I have a thrilling life. I recently got a new bathrobe. My last bathroom was very worn-out, had some weird stains and my husband making fun of it and I was like you need to you need. So I got a new bathrobe and I love it. It's the kind that's kind of feels like a towel, and if you're not a row, person, I totally get it, but I really love a robe in the morning or whenever I take a shower I'm letting my hair kind of air dry I usually let my hair air dry most of the time at least most of the way. Way I might like finish a little bit at the end with some heat but I try to use too much heat on my hair because I already curl it same anyway, so I like to have robot when my hair's drying, because otherwise it gets my clothes wet, either my pajamas or my clothes for the day, and I don't love that if my shoulders are wet the recipe. Probe Yeah and I got this kind of periwinkle purple color. It just looks good in our bathroom. We have like this meant green tile, and like these kind of blushed pink towels, and it just kind of went. I bought it based on kind of what it went within the bathroom. And, then after I got it, my husband, one day was kind of trolling me, and he was wearing it around the house, but then I think he was just teasing me basically, and then I, think he realized a high. So you kind of mentioned I should get her up. You know so I bought him the same row, but like many size and I got him burnt orange because he loves the Texas Long. And I get these rubs off Amazon so I will link it, but I was thinking I might look up some other robes, too, because I know, some people don't love Amazon, so I'll link some other options, but I did get mine off. Amazon just being on. So! There you have it. Thank you so much for listening this week. Thank you to everyone who has left us. Review or shared it on. Instagram means so much to us every Monday when you see these listening and posting of our podcast. Thank you, thank you..

"Really really believe in it now that you shouldn't keep decorations that you don't like love because it's, it's a decoration like you can find another picture frame and a thrift store or flea, market or garage seller so many places where you can collect things like that for free or for a very low amount of money I. Just don't think you should hold onto something, and this is also why don't buy a little things at target very much anymore because I find. I don't love them. Just for me, personally, I don't have an impulse. Buy like you're in the mood that day or it's really cute, but I don't even. Against target because I spend a ton of money at target still, but like their little decorations aisles. It's not for me. It's better for me to buy the thing. I really love for the spot when it's time for that room to be completed. Yeah, and then my next one is getting rid of kids stuff so this is really really difficult and the first year that we were parents. Difficult and then I implement them things, and now it's easy. Pay Tell us this journey. Yes, okay so when we were waiting to adopt I. Ask Leah from the Home Edit. Is it possible to have a kid's room? That is like. A magazine like an instagram like the beautiful. You know the perfect closet, the toys that are really cute to you, and then not all the other stuff lasted yeah! Like plastic big stuff you know things like that. And she said sure it is if you're willing to get rid of everything that people buy you gifts and never forgot that, and it is pretty savage, twenty four seven. But I will say the our moms have both adopted the habit of asking us now like what our kids are especially for Christmas though. For List, and it's been super helpful, because then we're getting toys that were keeping for years to come, and it's really really special so I'm grateful they don't have a Mama mother-in-law, that like the giant plastic playhouses, but if you do you heard the answer in order for me, it's unclear for you heard it from clear you heard from. For me. Okay so the other thing about kids stuff is kids, clothes, shoes, and things like that. So this is what this is. The habit that I adopted and you don't have to do it, but it really works for me so. I have a friend like a family friend. WHO's one size smaller than Nova and a family friend, WHO's once is smaller than Goldie and every single thing that they grow out of goes to those two girls, except for the most special sentimental stuff and I keep those like if it's Novas, I keep those Goldie or like Goldie out of her first baby boots and I'm keeping. Keeping those just for no reason just they to, you can give yourself a few little things. But I found that just like getting rid of it, and giving it to someone who can use it now is much more useful for me than putting it in the garage forgetting it's there and then you know when Goldie is just now. Growing into Novus I size from when we. We first adopted her and I can't find all the stuff I saved. It's just not realistically GonNa Happen so I, kind of wish I would have just given it to the little girl. That's one size smaller than Nova when in from now on. That's what I'll do i. just think it's more functional key. It gives things a purpose right away, and you can always you know. Know trade clothes back and forth like when we first got home from China, we'd have any close Goldie size and my brought me a big thing of you know clothes that they had just grown out of like. There's always going to be some way to trade baby clothes back and forth. Don't want them I. Feel like this is maybe like a pro tip hack than to. Just make sure to have your babies right after you're very stylish, friend does so. You can be that friend who gets the handouts? That is actually yeah I don't know if you can shoot. Quite plan, but I do like the little girls that get our kids hand me downs kind of lucky, because some of them are really cute I remember getting some of our cousins stuff from Buffalo. That was awesome. They had on the name brand stuff they were fancy. Yes Yeah. We were like Walmart children. Okay do you have any tips for? Kids are at work or things they bring home. Okay, re school, if not, we can at the south, but no, that's a good one that when seems really hard to me I'm not a mom, but those seem like the most sentimental, and you probably feel a little like. Oh, it's so small. It would be easy, but it's so much. There's actually a lot of it, so it accumulates really fast. Fast especially. If your children go to any kind of score daycare, then they'll send home artwork every day. In some cases to a lot, our were okay, my advice, my honest advice as I have done the thing with the photo book where you take all the pictures. Keep it in a photo album on your phone, parental buck, but my honest advice like what I'm doing for. Goldies, just only keep the really really really awesome ones Yep and just throw the rest away. It seems really heartless, but it doesn't matter like there's so many special things that we have our ornament from her first year with her. First your handprint, and whenever it gets the point where she makes her first painting I'll definitely frame that. We're GONNA have plenty of artwork. You don't need to keep every single little thing that comes home from school, but I do think that's the difference between the first kid in the second kid is just being able to do that. And knowing that like not every piece of paper sacred. Sure sure yeah. Okay so we're GONNA talk about some options for donating selling et CETERA. Because cleaning out your house is one thing, but then you have to put all this stuff somewhere and especially right now with covert I. Don't know for sure Some places may not be open wrought also. We recognize that some of you're going to listening months or years in the future, so we're just GONNA put it all out there and yeah so. Lately I will say for the last few months. We had a couple of times when we need to get rid of stuff. And there was no donation places open. Some of these other options can work well for that shirt, so for selling things so I'm a lover of closet sales. I do maybe one or two a year a big one, and they're great, because I'm able to sell things that I. Feel guilty. You felt like I spent money on it with a really nice. You know occasionally I. Buy something from by a lot of US close posh mark or Ebay, or whatever and I get it in. It doesn't fit me just right, and it's not going to so I just resell that Do you usually resell it on the same site like when you say closet sale? Do you do it the same every time, or are there a few different ways you do it? yeah, so I've used deep pop and Bosh Mark. They're both good I. think that, for whatever reason de pop myself sells faster and pop, so that's what I usually do, but it's like an iphone only APP which is annoying to some people right? I, always by Senate makes shipping labels for you. That's true. I love shopping, posh mark, but lake selling on D. pop. It's random I hardly ever buy anything deep up. and. I've never bought anything on there have always by. Shopping I love posh mark and threat up. Those are also great, so yeah, let's talk about the threat of back..

"Go if it's something that you've failed to get rid of in the past like you haven't used in years, but I have a couple of suitcases that have old stuff in them. It's old scrapbooks and some personal things from like high school and stuff like that right and I still haven't been able to get rid of them, but I know that when I actually do it. It'll feel really good. Yeah almost feels like you're getting your power back over those those items, which it's not bad to be sentimental and to keep things, but also I like some of IT I. Leaving it in a suitcase for ten years and I'm looking at it. Yeah, ends dipping it backup, 'cause it freaks, you out exactly okay, so we're going to rattle off some tips back and forth to my first one is closet tips. You know that we're really big into the curated closet we love. The book were doing the workbook right now? If both, it's one of our New Year's goals for each of us, it's helped me immensely. I can't recommend it enough. we mentioned like every episode. Oh into it mentioned it a lot. I feel like we should be partnering with No. You think when you wrote this book, but it's like no. Well, it's really helped because it's good for Each of us like we've struggled to find. Our felt like we wanted a new style. We wanted like our little uniform. A little thing that special has to be a little bit creative, but also really easy. It was like the specific thing that we wanted to do. And then when you go into your closet, and you feel like you put on four or five outfits in none of them. Are that thing? It's the most frustrating thing in the world. Yes, so my closet tip I. Love Them Rekondo things. She does putting all on your bed every single thing from the whole Causa and drawer that I've done. Done it about probably five times over the last four five years, and it helps me a lot to cut out things and trying on each item I, think is super important. I am a big believer in not keeping things that don't fit anymore. Even though I have a couple of times kept like a couple of things, but if you're gonNA, do it. Keep it separately like in a separate part of your closet. Not with your clothes that you wear every day. Because don't want things mixed in that. Don't say you. You know if it's sentimental like there's a spot for that too i. have like a spot in the back of my closet for sentimental. Has My wedding dress. Yeah, men, my prom dress from my senior year of high school. Oh. That's cute prom dress to. Okay Emma Prom pictures. Going in the show notes. It's really cute. It was so pretty owes a flea market or a thrift. Yeah, it was from the store that we bought later in life. Yeah. Okay Memories. okay. The next one is Emma's Pantry and kitchen. Yes, so I would consider. These are too quick tips and I would consider these kind of like low hanging fruit like if you do nothing else do these two things, and it will have a high impact so for your pantry simply go through everything and throw out. Anything that has has expired. Maybe might be export will be expiring in the next month and you kind of know you're not gonNA. Use It so I. I'm a person who cooks a lot. I love to cook and I was shocked. How many things still ended up in a pile like this? It's usually things like you use a little bit of it at a time like certain types of vinegars or certain type. You know things like that so anyway, and that's always a bummer, too. 'cause I think it's a good motivator for the. The next time, so it's like I'm GonNa. Make sure to use everything so I don't want to throw away food that expires anyway so things with expiration dates, and then the second largest hanging fruit tip is go through all of your kitchen gear, so all your flatware plates little appliances, gadgets, stuff, and just get rid of duplicates or ones that you don't use for example we have only two spatulas and our home and still I probably should get what read one because trays always like. Where's the good spatula? It's Washer because there's one that just works better, and you know you kind of know your things if you cook and if you use things than you know, and I have one item that I do have a duplicate of in. It's because I use it so often, and it's one of those likes, lemon and lime squeezer. Oh Yeah I put like fresh lemon in my water all the time. AREN T so that's like my one thing that might actually I have a duplicate, and I really do use it and they really do. That way because. Every time I use it. I also rinsed amount I still and I just use them constantly like I use them two or three times every day. I'll hot. Yeah. I'm a citrus, crazy person, but yeah, so if nothing else get rid of those expired things and get rid of duplicates and things you don't use nice. Okay my next step is for decluttering little things by little things. I mean decorations. Little Vases, statues picture frames. Things like that so okay I think that this is a place where you can be very savage, because the truth is so I did in my last house. Donated like. Lot of little things over the course of a year and I.

"Vote from your praises incredible energy. She is having a thousands thousands of people when she makes these stops but everybody that I spoke to last night said that they didn't believe she was going to be the nominee any was saying. Was that even though Elizabeth. Warren hasn't said anything about dropping out of the race. There is this growing sense of dread among her supporters. That this is just not going to be a winnable race for her aides part campaign this morning until the Washington Post that they are reassessing the campaign right now. So there weren't any glimmers of hope really on the horizon for her and the achievements that she was hoping to hang the campaign on and stay in. The race did not materialize last night. And if it does put her in a difficult spot but prediction has been a terrible business and the pundits have gotten it wrong over and over being realistic all along that she had pill fight. I think that they recognize that sanders. Presence in the campaign made it very hard for her to move To get past him simply because you know he came into with this core basis support that he built in two thousand sixteen. Worn was not able to do that. Said Yeah I mean I think they are right to assume as are we all that deals with Warren is not going to have a path nomination. But I also feel like if I'm if I'm Elizabeth Warren supporter if I am someone who pays some attention to politics. I'm GonNa look at what people were saying a week ago. Joe Biden. Who knows right? You know one of the lessons I tried to take in. Two Thousand Sixteen is all the things I think I know can very quickly be proven. Totally wrong some curious what you think. The Path forward is for Bernie Sanders because when we heard from our colleague Robert Costa who was with Senator Centers Vermont. On Tuesday behind the scenes. The Sanders campaign was taken aback. By how quickly centrist Democrats are rallying around by it. He said that even the campaign was surprised. By how quickly Biden has become this like formidable frontrunner? They thought that those exits may come after Super Tuesday for them to come be forcing for Tuesday. Put Sanders in a difficult position. The Sanders campaign is focused on Mark Test Michigan Missouri and other states where they feel like they can do well with younger white voters younger. African American voters liberal voters They also are looking ahead to states like Wisconsin Midwestern states to make the case. That Biden is not perfectly position in the Industrial Midwest so Michigan on March tenth and then in a few weeks Wisconsin. We'll be major tests for sanders too key to the. Democratic delegate contest is the fact that the Democrats linked Republicans allocate their delegates proportionally right. So if you have a two person race all you need. Is You need to win. Big States by a big margin is what Biden did in South Carolina for example. That math has always been tricky for Bernie Sanders because his strength tends to be that he does very well in states without many delegates. I'm also curious if from what we've seen so far in the primary process if anything in terms of either voter turnout or this kind of coalescing around the two poles of the Democratic Party if that tells us anything about what November will look like. I think the results were Super Tuesday. Do tell us about November. Which is that the value proposition that Joe Biden brought into his candidacy. This time around was that he would be able to reach out to voters that both voted Democratic in two thousand eighteen handed. Democrats the House but also those voters who in two thousand sixteen made the difference and giving Donald Trump the presidency by virtue of his narrow Winston Wisconsin. Let's bring in Michigan Biden's entire proposition was. I can get done what we didn't what we collectively didn't get done in two thousand sixteen by virtue of my base of Appeal and I think we saw him deliver on that on Tuesday in particular. We saw you know working class voters. We saw. How whites without college degrees or surgeon term in turnout among whites without college degrees in Virginia for example they went overwhelmingly for Biden. We saw a broader surge in Democrats without degrees that that end of the Wayne. Virginia Joe Biden. Said I can get these voters and at least in the primary. So far he's been able to do so the ball off with golden it. Kinda mark you know aplenty point or another turning point in a and our colleague cleave Woodson. He was with Biden in Los Angeles Onto Produce Day and he spoke to that sentiment. And so a lot of the you know supporters that that I've talked to over the last couple of days and you know fully expected that he would do well on Super Tuesday. They were extremely optimistic and what they were trying to see. Okay does this. Put Him in the mix of frontline or just been even with Bernie Sanders. I would think shakeout in our state. This campaign will send Donald Trump packing. Join US I would say that the outstanding question that I have after Super Tuesday's what kind of race we're gonNA see moving forward. Are we gonNA see race such as we saw in two thousand four? When the Democratic Party Democratic voters very quickly tried to coalesce around the front runner which that point John Kerry simply because they wanted to move forward and get into a battle against a Republican president who they vehemently disliked. Or is this GONNA be like two thousand eight which you have to competitors who are running neck and neck from now through June contesting every single delegate that is up for grabs in an effort to try neither get just ahead of the other or potentially reach the majority that is needed to clinch the nomination? I think what we saw in two thousand sixteen gives some sense Bernie Sanders is probably not going to just simply step aside. That he will keep contestants. I think it's likely that assuming that binds report doesn't once again collapse that something doesn't happen With his candidacy that will apply. See a pretty grueling fight moving forward but that's the unanswered question. Philip covers politics for the fix any Linski Cleveland and Robert Cost reported from the campaign trail. We'd come to view now that this that it is time for us to act in support of the economy and once you reach that decision. We decided to go ahead. So what are the Fed announced on Tuesday? The Fed did something highly. Unusual announced. An emergency interest rate cut of half a percentage point. What changed really was. I would say over the course of the last couple of weeks. We've we've seen a broader spread of the virus we've seen it began to spread a bit here in the United States but for us what really matters. Courses is not the epidemiology but the risk to the economy. We haven't seen a cut this large or in an emergency which means it's an unscheduled cut since the two thousand eight financial crisis so that's a pretty big flashing red light. I'm heather long. Economics correspondent at the Washington Post. So why did they decide to do this? Well lowering interest rates is as the Fed chair. Saying IT'S NOT GOING TO CURE CORONA VIRUS. And as many economists have pointed out it's not gonNA make people go in. WanNa spend by a lot more if they just WanNa stay home in order to avoid corona virus but at the same time. There's a clear risk a clear hit to the economy going on. There's a rising risk of recession. And if you're the world's top economic policymaker fed chair Powell you have to do something and this is the biggest bazooka you've got this to lower interest rates and he fired at yesterday so the thinking is is that the outbreak continues and you have businesses. That aren't able to do the type of business that they were previously able to do or factory shutting down or things not being sold at least by doing this. The Fed can encourage people who still have the ability to grow business to take out loans to do more essentially. Is that thinking so? That's right the way that lowering interest rates normally works is it makes it cheaper to get credit so it's cheaper to get a mortgage now. It's cheaper to get an auto loan. It's cheaper to get a loan to go on a vacation or start a business. Of course most people aren't thinking about that this week so what they were really trying to do. This week was to boost confidence. We just went through the worst week for the stock market and the most rapid loss since two thousand eight anytime you compared to two thousand eight. It feels scary. The big question right now for the. Us economy is whether the supply shock turns into what we call demand shock so for weeks..

"What can I do to get closer to my goal? This is like super helpful. This is helpful because it's something I need people to understand the most valuable asset you have in your life is time. Time is not money you can always make more money but when you lose time like you can't lose that that is the most valuable asset you have in your life so if you don't set time and Kadena now going back and forth on this all the time because she's a procrastinator and I'm I'm the opposite of a procrastinator the minute I know something to get done i WanNa rewind and do that Shit yesterday and K B like Davao like we just found out about it the fact that it's not done you can't be distressed and worried about it so there's a balance between you you can't be a procrastinator but at the same time you can't be a stressful person thinking that stuff's never got done on time you have to find that a medium to where you can you know you can get things done and still live a comfortable life and enjoy it. Enjoy the moment like you said. I don't do enough join the moment. Yes yes I think that a lot you definitely need to stop and enjoy certain moments and not let them pass you by and do things that you've worked for for a long time so it as we wrap things up which I think this is amazing because this is The last episode of Season Two. Yeah so we're super happy that you guys have been on this journey with us so happy for so happy and just being as we're getting towards the end of the year and everyone's probably now going to be making those vision discussions you know we're ending the fourth quarter of the year and already looking towards two thousand twenty and everything that's out there that you're trying to achieve and the goals that are being said You mentioned the secret level and having to read that book I had no. I read that book as well years ago. I waited awhile in Miami worth doing a little sift through again just to get a little refresher but We did pull some stuff from that One being visualizing what you have now visualizing what you want and in detail Also being able to see yourself in that place Were you WANNA be and how making those goals are going to be real and achievable for you. In the only person that you have to conceive the only person that you have to convince that you're you're capable of this is your cell. The truth I was wondering I learned this mountain biking when we were in Saint Lucia Mountain biking and yeah. I remember going down to mountain so fast. And there's a woman she's a professional mountain biker. As she said don't look at the Rock and I was like what the Hell is that me. She was just like every time. I'm going down mountains of people and he his fast. They look at the Rock because once you look at the rock you go towards awards the Rock and it don't matter how many times you say don't hit the Rock don't hit the rock. Don't hit the rock. If you're focused on Iraq you're GonNa hit the rock so she said don't even look at the Rock. The Rock is not there. Look at the path that you want to go. And that's what you call visualizing you visualize where you WanNa go where you see yourself because the universe is always conspiring in your favor for sure. Sure so since the universe is conspiring your favorite. If you're constantly thinking about the things you don't want to happen right. Want to happen to decipher that right. So all it is is just sending you all the stuff you don't want what's happening is sending it to you as opposed to I got this. I got this I got this. Yes and I've exercised that every time I thought about I don't know if I'm GonNa get this. I don't know if I'M GONNA get this goes. I've been doing that recently. I've been doing recently with these new audition and I'm like I got this absolutely got this out there. put it out. Sure I don't even think about it and then in turn protect your energy because sometimes too when you know that you're convincing yourself that you're capable and that's the only thing that matters we're kind of tuning out everybody else who may think otherwise is being concerned with what other people think about you your dreams and things that you're trying to achieve so protecting your energy you what you resist. Resist will persist that what she resists slow persist yes. The law of attraction says that the universe does not process negatives only energy meaning. meaning that if you focus on what you don't want you will only continue to attract more of that thing that goes hand in hand with what you just said. Positively goes a long way. Don't watch the RUCK. Don't watch watch. The ride is on the pet. Keep the and don't worry about how is going to happen. Just know and believe that it will We'll take that approach. Prepare yourself for the opportunities that you don't even know exist. Many of the best opportunities seen come from places and people and situations that that you least expect it. So don't let what you might see as a setback discourage you from working towards your goals. This is very great stuff. I mean is is I I mean we. We gave some great examples. And it's funny to hear somebody. I put it down on paper. Yeah because as you go through life right you don't put things down on paper you just do it and I can see see how doing these things for me is almost like the step-by-step yes. I'm Senate shows the measurable there you give. Thanks exude a positive attitude due to an attitude of gratitude. Because when you're genuinely grateful for what you have today you will start to see more clearly that you already have everything you need to succeed as though any so true so true people I I feel like people who are genuinely humble. Gracious people always get more stuff absolutely absolutely and and you know I always talk about being spiritual personnel religious person. I feel like God has always given me more than I needed. Because he knows I'm always GONNA pay for it forward anyway so and and it may sound crazy but I feel like God who will never let everyone go without so he knows that if he doesn't give me so many people go without because he knows what I give I'm giving giving come and gone through our household we think about the children. This came through your mentorship program who used to come home with us. Some nights we used is to feed them. Give them lunch money whatever. It was like a never expecting anything in return or wanting anything in return. We just knew that it was the right thing to do in that moment and we genuinely wanted to do better their situations somehow even if it was just for the day yes you know. If it was for the week for the month we knew some single moms who needed some help with their kids. Pick up and it was. I was just like what we do. We Jackson in the back seat with us. And we'd be trucking kids around like they were hours as I said I've definitely had more than just three children's Gordon born in their household but is wanting to financially.

"It doesn't matter whether you're religious spiritual remember quick story. My grandmother was like come guys before you go to sleep. This yard needs to be cut. I said Gramma questions like what you believe in the Bible right this is me at twelve. She's like yesterday Smart Smart Smart so yes I do. Believe she's a yes I do believe in about I said well you made us we description this side. If three or more people and we pray the Lord will give you what you need so so our she was like yes. I said so rather than US going out and cutting the yard. How about the three of us get together? We prayed at the yard will be cut. And then we're GONNA go play basketball and she said the vow you get your brother Iago pre whoop your ass pretty for us. Is someone just go outside. Cut The grass on the head out like because the moral of the story is faith without works is that you can pray for it. But if you don't put the work in Guy will not give you the blessings you ask for what you put in in a worst shutout della Ellis got got the message. I will mass whooped wanted dead ass. I didn't want to say that I wanted to be Allo-. Aw That's how we have fake grass contract SAWGRASS. He's playing aggressive fake Achievable goals also needs to be realistic and attainable. The easiest way to lose motivation by setting goals that are out of reach to avoid that breakdown. Big Goals into smaller goals. That will help you get there. You know maybe your goal is to make a career Ria change and if you don't have those skills to make that make you viable candidate for the job. Then maybe you're going to have to kind of backtrack and see what you can do to teach yourself get a new set of skills. Get a certification. Whatever your next goal is to switch careers now? I'm have the remix a little bit because I feel like being realistic doesn't get you anywhere in life like another. Will Smith goal thing. I've heard him saying being realistic doesn't make great people for example sample the Wright brothers right when they decided to talk about flying flying planes and it's not realistic to think that you could take a piece of metal bend it into a cylinder get in it and then fly over the ocean this shit. It's just not realistic so in a way you have to think beyond being realistic and then that's why I'm some remixing so now you know what the end goal is once you know what the end goal is less create some smaller goals which I agree with to get us to the final point because you're not going to ultimately get to that unrealistic goal tomorrow tomorrow right there steps case saying it's like okay we're GonNa make the metal cylinder okay great now. We need an engine gravity okay. Let's how are we going to let this goal for this as years to figure out `aeronautics yes that's the word right `aeronautics yes small. You are not cute.

"Jada Pinkett Smith Life made it was insane. It was insane and it's funny because I remember being young and saying to myself living in Brooklyn that where I exist now is where my life is is not where my life is going to be this. I'm not going to end up here. You know like I'm just not gonNA remember seeing that as a child yes I remember being a small child saying gene. Am I gonNA PLAN NBA. Am I going to be an. NFL kept in touch. Sounds like Jerry Rice or am I going to be on stage dancing. Making people laugh seeing like I just knew that there was something greater for me. That had nothing to do with me but I like I just felt my whole life that there was something greater that I was supposed to do and ended up turning into TV film. Because when I used to go to Morristown Tennessee is summertime to visit my grandparents The boys and Girls Club had a basketball court. They had a billiards lounge in also had a performing arts center and I used to always always go to Performing Arts Center and Dance Rob do place. An acting was always something that I wanted to do and I always felt my whole life like. I'm not going to stop until I get to where I want to be. Sorry in being at that dinner. The Tyler Perry opening was like the first step. Yeah wasn't the combination of my career. That was the beginning and I honestly feel that I know yeah. I was on stage at a young age to I started dancing at three years old. And I think this kind of thing that you do when you have a daughter is like learned in school And let's see if it becomes a thing and I was dancing since I was three started dancing competitively when I was about ten I'll never forget one day. I got a pamphlet in the mail from American coed pageants and I saw. I'm always liking to watch Miss America with my mom. Of course Vanessa Williams was like my most is favourite Miss America ever and thinking to myself. Wow like the beautiful gowns and being on stage in the pretty crown and the swimsuits like those are those are always things things that I looked at it and I kind of admired like the the confidence these women had to be on stage and they were also well-spoken and I remember looking at that as a young girl thinking. Wow I'd love to do that one day So I got this pamphlet in the mail when I was ten years old for the Miss New York pre-teen pageant and I remember taking it to my mom and dad and saying like. Hey I want to do so this You know blue that compete and you know my dad was kind of like. Oh you have to bother with that like you know. My father's. He's very practical. Like it was going to get you. Are you gonNa make money doing it. You know is about your schoolwork you know attend. Remember saying I'm like it's a scholarship. I Dunno scholarship money so I was like well. I can again when money and I could put that in a bank account for college one day so he was kind of like still skeptical. But he's like okay and I really wanted to badly and my mom was more the one like I. I think this'll be good exposure. She saw they had interview portion of the competition. So she said you know what this will get you in front of people talking. You're not going to be shy. You won't have to be scared of public speaking. And if you really WANNA do it we'll do it and being on stage and feeling that rush and performing in front of people in front of an audience and speaking public speaking became a thing that rose just natural for for me. You still very good at it now. Yeah thank you and I kind of had a knack for it and and that moment I knew that chances are wasn't going to go the route. The entire family went into medicine They'll at pageants when they asked me what I wanted to be. I always said a pediatrician. Because I felt like that was what I was supposed to do you know. My aunt was a pediatrician. Dr My mom's nerves my father's a lab tech like it made sense But I always knew deep down that that was not going to be my path breath. So here's a question I have for you Did you did you always believe in manifesting. Did you always believe that I have to believe this. Say it out loud acclaim it in order food to work or did you feel like Oh these necessary steps. I had two now. I was never are a manifest jerry. I was never The person who felt felt it was necessary or there was value per se in saying these things allow. This is not something that I learned actually actually until like maybe a couple years ago to be honest I was raised seventy events in the church. So you prayed for things that she wanted and when you did pray for for things you had to work is a tradition right exactly so when I speak of manifestation as in like Africa affirmations allow things like that not necessarily the spiritual side of things. That for me wasn't a thing but just praying on things and being able to do the work. That was something that I believed in something that I did as a child. Oh and I still continue to do that. As an adult coupled with other things as in verbal affirmation speaking things into a descent and then also having to develop the burke ethic to work towards those things from the time I was five. I felt like I could do anything that I ever wanted to do. I'll never forget that early because I remember being Ms Bradshaw's class And they're being a bar memories. Have the Chin up tests. There was a bar on the wall and no one in the kindergarten class or the first grade class could get to the bar without Mr Smith lifting them up and putting them on the bar and I remember being in kindergarten and I remember looking at the bar. I can reach that like I remember saying I can. At least I can reach that and I remember the kids and this is the thing like I remember so vividly. I remember the kids like trying to reach this jump in China and ending in nowhere close and I remember running in May and I was very athletic. And I'm like I'm going to be the person to get it. You know by the end of the year. I figured out that if I had run and jumped and kicked off the wall I could kick off the wall and grab it and I remember being able to run and grab it and it was a big deal. Mr Smith used to have me do that to other people like you. I'll be in gym class. And he'd be like Ellis Ellis. You know what I'm saying. Go get the Chin up bar and I remember seeing the kids remember kids coming in there and I run and I run full speed beat and kick off the wall and grabbed the bar and I remember the kids going Yo and I remember that point in my life being point where I I can do anything I want to do you. You know so I just got to figure it out and from that point on to the rest of my life anytime I said you know what I'm GonNa do something I I just did it and failed and failed and failed and failed in the field until I figured it out. You know what I'm saying. I think most people are afraid of the failure part absolutely. Yeah and I learned if I listened to masterpiece asu piece is something that the revolt summit he said in life right. You're gonNA come across people and these people are not going to root for you to win because in our our culture especially in a in the black American culture. We like to laugh at people who fail. You know we like to point out how you failed you failed. You failed and it's not until Oh you're comfortable staying in L. is not a laws. It's a lesson. Will you be able to continue to keep trying because when you fail you didn't lose you learn why. Why didn't I get to the bar that time? Why didn't I get to the bar that Tom? Oh maybe I shouldn't jump off my left with me bedroom of my rifle. Maybe I should do my left then my right foot. Maybe I should reach them all right hand rather than my left because my right here is my strong and these are the things I remember saying to myself five that if I wanted to grab it I I would have to run and then after grab my all right hand I because every time I touch it with my life I can't hold it and it was every time I missed it. I had learned something. So you had a strategy in place at that point strategy amazing to to realize has the F. Five and I don't even think I knew that about you. That was a secret secret because I didn't know that because I feel I feel kinda strange telling people because when you say things out loud sometimes most people look at you like you're crazy. You know I can remember certain things in my life that changed my perspective on on things who I wasn't what was going to be and when you say things out loud some sometimes talk people. He's full of himself. He's crazy but even when I told people my dreams they laugh they laugh. There's a lot of things that are not meant to be set allowed and I think there's a power sometimes times in holding that in. Oh absolutely and you saying you know what this is for me because it's about me and it's something I want to accomplish and you feel less pressure sometimes fearing the scrutiny that you're GonNa have as you make it towards that because you think about success when you think about What people that means for people you know some people believe that success it just comes from being in the right place at the right time you know one of the most successful people of all times in my opinion at least Oprah Winfrey her career and where she's come Avocado from her her. She said I believe that luck is preparation. Meets Opportunity if you haven't been prepared when the opportunity came along you wouldn't have been lucky absolutely absolutely so when I look at when I look around at these times and realize that the things I've dreamed of for myself and how they've come into fruition that I'm I'm extremely lucky. It's really just not look. It's just having having prepared for it's never ever look. I think that's the missing piece for a lot of people people I know I've had moments where I just kind of wanted things to happen when things that happened I wasn't prepared to receive it at that point because I wasn't working towards it and I can admit that for sure. Go shout.

"A long way deciding divisions nations Cowboys Eagles Bills Patriots. Me Start with cowboys. Eagles what are we doing here. Well yeah that's a great existential question to ask about this division. I'm rooting for tied. Because that's the funniest object. The cowboys are the better team there. Plus Ninety in point differential the eagles are plus fix the difference. I think has been coaching an execution. DAX injury throws a little bit of a wrench into this but I think Dallas has has it then you think coaching and executions going to put them over the top of every back. But there's more to pass you. Yeah menas right. The cowboys are a better team. The injuries to the eagles have been remarkable last week. There wide receivers combined had zero reception heading into the two thousand nine hundred nine season. So they're working with cobbled together roster but this game means a lot and so the cowboys will probably find a way to fail. Even though Ezekiel Elliott should be just pushed the entire game. This is the move global objects and several force paradox in reverse with these teams black cab. You just have to go off what we just saw most recently and so. What we saw most most recently was a cowboys? Offensive exploded against a bad rams team. So I'm going to go with that being the trend and we saw an eagles team struggled to be A Washington Washington team. That's not very I would say that Each team brings its eight-game. The cowboys will win. If team thinks it see Game the cowboys will win. I just don't see how they're they they have more firepower left the only thing loosen DAK shoulder. What is the deal where we won't know until Sunday accent? Some from your oil found interesting. That shoulder being questionable really puts the spotlight again as it always is on Jason Garrett and that might put him in a tough position. Yeah Yeah. My concern is that they're going to lean too hard on the run when that hasn't been always the formula in Games. I would hope that they'd be more creative with their playcalling. Sell to hit me with with the music again builds pastries. Yeah you already gave up on the. Act Seventeen years ago. But Bob Start with you. What's going on there's a lot of trepidation? People are well aware of the impotent. Input impotency of the offense. They worry about Radi seascape. It was the weaponry that bed and and they know that Bill I around sixteen to ten game worried. Of course they should be worried. Should be word. Answer this for for me. Then Bob what do the Patriots needs to do to pull this off. Or what should they be worried about the bills doing to pull this off. Well the thing. Is this good for the Patriots. This that bell chick will swallow up a what kind of Allen I take. The first game was sixteen to ten. And this one is very likely to be bill checks gaming for Kyle. That would be a problem problem for Josh Josh. Josh Josh Josh about you John.

Inspired changing what they've done is one of my great frustrations that have had this program from the beginning is all the things they seem to want to do involve black people fixing stuff stuff right like you think about the phrasing around when you hear roger goodell talk about if you want to help the players enact change in their communities partner we need next change in your community we k- fix racism right like that's not how it works so if you look at this the crushes club this is their bio on their twitter page we arm young people with the support and skills they need to restore their lives improve their neighborhood. Why are they are the ones being asked to do this. The help needs to come from the actual institutional might that comes from the n._f._l. And the people that have money within the the n._f._l. Instead what you get is window-dressing type stuff like this all lives matter and everything else the n._f._l. Can't do the work. They claim they want to do unless they're willing to offend some white people and that's what but they're never willing to do and you mentioned the term window-dressing this is an advertisement in a window that begs us to wonder how messed up the store is what is the strategy here right because this seems to have been a strategy that originated in some position of defense the n._f._l. Wanted to play defense jay z. Now since we've gotten deeper into the story over the last several weeks clearly should be anticipating that defense needs to be his priority as well but all he has given us is stuff to question like we throw the photo again of this woman cutting hair because what is does in terms of defense is handier opponent owning all sorts of things. Throw back in your face and say wait a minute. What are we doing. Here is even if there's an innocent explanation for this young man says he wanted to changes. You just live by cutting gets here. Let's say all of those things true the way that this was tweeted out by the organizations you took such joy in doing this as though this was like the major thing in that seems to be so tone deaf tone deaf in a way that makes you question in total the intentions of the people that are behind it or what the work is exactly that they think that they're doing but this is also like we're the n._f._l. Is it it ain't a radical organization. It never will be they are trying their best to be what they deem at the very least to be as middle of the road is possible. This is where i think that jay z really misunderstood. What kind out of business he was getting into where overall i think they all do so part of this plans to sell some t shirts right.
