"In finally at Amman, I win on twitter up as her usual. Ride. Let's discuss Canada's drag race so this week. The Queen's had to create a fashion line from recycled materials and I think before we. I like, I was like the headline. Here is the judging, because even my friends who like you'll walk drag. Race were like what happened. Drag race like the strengthening on twitter. What is going on so I? Kind of feel like we have to really discuss this? Because essentially, we had the three different fashion lines where each of the different groups had to make it out of a different recycled materials, so Jimbo Nomi and Alona were all the May Maison happy, so the House of paper lemon Boa Priyanka. Russ doing the metal scarlet, Reda Kiara did plastic which their house name was La Maison Baraga. Merge of all of their names. And of course, all of their looks had to be cohesive and high. Fashion is what they were going for, so Josh A. The judging this week. What was with the judging this week seriously? Honestly I think they were so all. I did think that. Jimbo was incredible I thought did a great job. And I thought that metal they said metal was like in the middle. I thought was absolutely. The Week S. They were completely off as far as my opinion goes. So the the winners were the the plastic the La Maison Baraga and then the overall winner was Rita, so and then the other queens were all judge, so the three winning queens were sent to their like untucked lounge. Queens were giving critiques and. The judges were also I. Think just kind of rude. If I'm being on his. Maybe. It was just Jeffrey Boyer Chapman because the whole line to Jimbo about like. Her using her time and like Oh will use. It better maybe was just so uncomfortable. Yeah. The episode. Side off so well. You know what I I was glad to see that That stacy was the one that was like controlling the welcome in the beginning. Through variety here, we're getting a chance to. All of the judges isn't going to be the Jeffrey. Warrior Chatman, show. And but Yeah I. They really didn't like that paper I was like that was constructed, so wow. I was so shocked out like. Is he trying to establish himself? As the bitch of the judging panel because I'm I'm fine with that late unpowered, having a harsh shush, everybody has to have you need a Simon Calorie on all right. You need that. By. Be Construct be right. Right. Didn't make any sense to me felt like. Is this a rerigging here like? was there a plan that was supposed to take place this week? And then the Queen's outperformed the that they were gonNA. Do Worse than what they did. And then all of a sudden. You have to switch it just. It came so out of left field. yeah bath! What did you think about the results this week? I agree with the winners. I agree that for me. The assignment was to have a cohesive line number runway. Right hand, so a collection had the looked like the so they they did it that would in my opinion, they were the most cohesive in terms of having little bits and pieces that were. Like elevated right, so that made sense to me, so therefore does make sense to have paper in metal, but I agree. I felt like metal was obviously the worst. They were like really blown away by Riach now don't get me wrong. was. Getting such like you should, you should be on. The runway is in Paris and I'm like what? Was Sloppy it. was you buying what? Do you. Do you read? Have you been to New York Fashion Week. Knowing. Person there. Who's been to your fashion? We guarantee it stacey and she. I don't know I can't remember actually. I think she probably compliment. Weiner ass umbrellas out that they were going to get ten minutes probably. It was just like what the Hell is going on here, also talk about our baked potato We have Boa who she's not serving fishy serving dish. She's got to start. Side was cheaper. Comparison okay. What we've now gotten from Boa, every single time is boo gag, Boo, gag, boob, gag, Vagina gag like. Literally what we've gotten from her every single time so I did agree with the judge saying like. Can you do something else because you've gotten in the top of your personality, you of have to start bringing on the runway, but more so I agree with that. I agreed that Lemons look was the best out of the three in the metal. I thought she looked beautiful, but I also do agree not did not look like a collection. It did not look like there was any kind of. Cohesive team things I do agree that they should have been the bottom and I think that Priyanka. and. Boa should have been the sing however. I also agree with the judges that the night looks though gorgeous costumes those are not high fashion. High fashion so I was not upset that the two of them are in the bottom i. don't like how they came at China me because I feel like. A lot of that was unwarranted, and I felt like was gas lighting to be perfectly honest with you. I felt like for the past couple of weeks. It's been like gas lighting critiques quote Unquote Toward Nomi. But and I I also didn't like how you Lona handled everything, and behind the scenes like all of that was a mess. I didn't like the critique about Jimbo, but I will also say this Jimbo is not a saint in this situation either because her team had a clear vision of what they wanted to do, she went the other way if I were alone in China me what I would have done. It said we're going to do it. We want throw her under the bus to the judges and say yeah. That looks great, but you know what she's not doing working as a team player. This is what our concept was. She's the one that ruined it and I would have stuck with it. Throw her under the bus because that's what she was willing to do to. You guys to get you guys to be her. So that's just my thoughts on the competition part of it. Yeah, I'm trying to to pull up, so we were supposed to a little behind the scenes fund information. We were supposed to record tomorrow, but my power went our yesterday's. My power went out and I was supposed to pull the Canada's. Clips, but I did not and then I. Forgot because I'm Super Professional. But but yeah, I mean I think I, co-signed. What a lot of you guys are saying, I, think that just if the goal was to create a high fashion line, I think that the plastic team definitely one that now who belongs in the bottom? How does I think a little bit up to interpretation? Because if you're thinking about like what looks were constructed the best, that's may be different than what is high fashion. Because maybe you could argue that like who the RASTA metal team more fashion there just also ugly, so you know it's just it's really hard. Paper was more high fashion Iq I. Get I get the costuming critique I. Do but just like the.

"And the other two were just out? Call them big disappointments. It's very high expectations. Leave hungry. Not necessarily because I'm very polite when people bring me food and generally eat whatever you bring me. But there wasn't the enjoyment commit level that I've got some of these other places and so I sort of after those experiences now. I don't pay much attention to these. To these rankings six. I think I look more for like aggregate stuff and I actually. This is what got want to go back to this infatuation review of time is because is for so many years the infatuation has been such a good resource for not only me but for so many people. And I've I've basically concluded that the infatuation writers I had the exact same Palette and we enjoy the same things so you've never disagree with them before this very rarely has it happened but very it's never happened where they've been so wrong you will be. It's just there like two or three four day review came out. I had read the review and it did not stop me from going there. Oh so you oh so you you were hadn't gone yet when you read the came out when we were New York glad well and and an awesome. Yeah and then I was like I'm still going still going to get the spaghetti you first of all. I think it's hilarious. Had experience with this with with this difference in sort of victimization. eld everybody's telling you. This is so great. Eight or pete wells comes out and says this is a four star restaurant. I find I find and it'll be interesting to see because I haven't been to Atlanta yet. I I'm going. I find that a lot of of a lot of these restaurants. You're talking about. The food is incredible. But you leave hungry. I think so. So for example the Masa which is a sushi place Sean. Feeney insanely took me and say I'm never. I would never dispute the quality of the fish quality of everything the service I went there on a work trip once I wouldn't necessarily go there myself and went during a trip once and I'd I'd say an hour after I left. I went to the grocery pizza because I didn't have enough. So it's I haven't had one. I haven't been many of these restaurants as you have so I haven't had one where I've left there being like the quality of this was not up to snuff but I do think part of the deal when you go to these things is the is. It's more more than just a food. It's everything the presentation is so important. The experiences so important and you have to prepare yourself for the fact that you're not going to go into a place where you're having four courses and you're gonNA be like I can't walk outside. You know you are. You're very much. You're very much in it for whatever the chef is in the mood for that night and it may not be something that's your preference and so you kind of have to you kind of have to deal with it when Sean took me to Masa Sean knows Mosh Moscow. Yeah so he was there and so I had a completely different experience where we had lovely bottle of White Burgundy and he was drinking taking it with us while he made us our Sushi and then he's like as soon as he was done with with that part of the meal he was like all right guys. I gotta go to my other restaurant now. Like he came came in just to serve Shawn and me who didn't know which is the cool as the coolest which was like the coolest thing and I. I think we may be doubled up on some of the some of the rounded fish so yeah we probably got more food but hi. How often do you use? yelp never really never used yelp now. What is insane because I would? I'd say Yelp is Yoga's probably up there with for me with most if I if they did a breakdown my phone of APPS I actually go on the most I think yelp is either one or two. He opens the Graham Uber. This is why I don't trust yelp again. Malcolm brought this up on our podcast but when you're talking about things like yelp where people are giving reviews and rating the most people that go on Yelp to give a review or rate something. Something are only doing it because they had a bad experience. See I do not have your own mentally disagree with this. When it comes to you perfect you ever? Do you ever go hotel attack. Never let the review. I've never I've never. I don't even have an account. So I'm a complete YELP lurker. I've never read. Welcome closely even bad experience. A YELP APP. Yes it can happen. I'll give you for for example of the benefit of you. I was in Iowa over the weekend and I was bouncing roasting in Des Moines. which has a bunch of good restaurants but that was in all of these different small towns in Iowa many of which? There's not one restaurant in the whole town. It's just not a lot of food options. I didn't have a bad meal so for frozen for three days. I never bad meal the entire time because of yelp because I would get on I would go to some I would go to some political event now search launch Geo tag and say where I was and it would point me out to a coffee shop in the middle of a strip mall six miles away that if you drove by in a million years you won't even notice your food. I mean it's there's nothing about it from the outside looking in that. Looks like a very good but on yelp it's four and a half stars and it says amazing breakfast sandwiches. Amazing this amazing that if you if you use it every once in a while you're going to be led astray but ninety eight percent of the time you're GONNA end up with a positive result. I think that it's I think that where you get into trouble is when you have yelp for other things like for example. Never go not that. Either of US really would do this. But if you're going to a club don't go on yell because every club has one and a half stars because if you can can get into the club and are pissed off downstairs Dick or whatever. It was with restaurants for the most part especially when there's over two or three hundred of us there are a lot like were not not necessarily the majority a lot of people love leaving comments. That's like the thing I feel like. We've never used it. You're going to need to change Here's my so when you google place and then there's like the Google reviews and like a lot of times the yelp rating will come up. They'll oh have like three reviews just instantly that you could like glance over so I have done that but I've never gone to yelp or downloaded the APP to like actually read reviews in full but I feel like the reason I don't trust these sort of places is because I feel like places that are places reviewers at don't give four and a half or five stars to a place. It's always the same thing it's always. The portions were too small. I left Hungary or everything was so expensive expensive and like a lot of times going somewhere and I know those things ahead of time. Yeah Greenwich I'm going to like a hole in the wall Taco place and the Tacos because they're twenty two dollars. Yes I would like to know that in advance but if you're going to a linear like you know in advance yes it's it's wildly overpriced and I actually asked grant rant on the podcast about the prices. You talk but so south Philly Barbara Koa is a good example of this before it was featured on chef table. Or whatever Netflix show is featured on that is the definition of a hole in the wall Taco place in the middle of its right where Gino's and all the All the cheese steak places are very toward just sort of tourist central Philadelphia. If you or I walked by that and we saw South Philly Barbara Koa. I don't think there's any the way we are stopping in there and there's just no chance it's like having a good Taco place right there. There's no way that that's the that is going to be a place that we're going to look into into but if you go on yelp now wanted to tell you how good it is it tells you exactly what to get the photos. It's just it's just it's just crowdsourcing at its best. Where did you go in New Orleans because I see David on twitter asked your your New Orleans bar rankings. Where did you go into a bunch of places on Bourbon which? I don't remember the names I was just blackout and then I went to the bar at the hotel with a place called Bar Marylou far Marylou. Uh which is one of the best friends ever meant to It is so packed now when I first got to New Orleans that hotel La Maison de la Luz. It's It's I think it's owned and ran by the ace hotel chain or whatever. They opened this bar in their Barbaro. And I would like go after gains for food. And there'd be like twelve people in there and now doesn't matter what night it is. You cannot get so you don't you don't have to be staying out. Go there now now. And is there any benefit the hotel. Do you get preference. You know that little little speakeasy place decide you have to walk through bookcase to get to like to access to. That's what I'm talking about.

HSS Center practicing for Brooklyn and then he turns around and he throws a football. And it's not good. It's it looks like Tom Brady. Thrown a football twenty three years from now like it's not always.

"Welcome back to the GMC leered news podcast. That's before the break. We were talking about flow recommended his wonder bread truck driving adventures truck riding adventures. Excuse me and you know we do a lot of Florida sorta stories. There seems to be a lot of weird news coming out of Florida but I feel like there's a lot of weird news. It also comes out of Michigan. Am I just getting that mixed up with all the other states I don't know but our next story comes from Michigan and This is from September twentieth and tells us that a Michigan Police officer responded to a late the night call and ended up getting way more than originally bargained for so the Shelby Township Police Department said officer feted responded responded to an RV storage lot Wednesday night after a security guard called in a report of a python on the loose okay. That's one that's one moment when I might think this isn't what I became a police officer four but maybe that is what you become a police officer for rogue pythons. I don't know honestly mostly if it was a different type of snake would probably be a little afraid but I've dealt with pythons before federal told W XYZ TV. Fedex said she arrived you to find this snakehead slithered into the engine of an old corvette parked in the lot. How did she find it Did she like track it didn't did you have a python snake sniffing dog with her. How do you find a python that slurred into the in a in a storage place. She says one of our detectives brought a box and actually brought one of the dog bowls they were like. I'm not touching it. I'm like it's no big deal. I picked it up off the car and put it in the box. pfennigs said the Python Python is believed to be an escaped pet probably either an escaped pet or they didn't want to feed it anymore and just turn it loose She said they knew they they like the heat. I I knew it stayed up there long. It wouldn't survive long. It was cold last night. Police said the U. Python is now in the custody of mccomb county animal control and will end up at a local rescue ask you if it's owner can't be found well python. We wish you the best of luck because you either escaped and you know went on your own adventure or you were turned loose because your owners bigger here owners couldn't feed you any more or what have you who knows what really happened but hopefully so far this python and has had a bit of a happy ending. I mean you know got to check out. A corvette didn't get to drive it. Leg didn't get to go for a ride like the raccoon but it got to have a little bit of adventure or now. Maybe this Beith on. We'll find a loving forever home. That will take it in and give it lots of mice or something. I'd like to eat. I know that's how it works and I don't have a problem with it except what I think about it happening in captivity of freaks me out a little bit like snakes hunting totally get that snake in a terrarium and then you just throw in a rat. Maybe it's dead. Maybe it's frozen. Maybe it's alive. I don't know it's like yeah speaking of Weird News. Your host is weird high of issues. It's okay. I'm working on it. Our next story also comes to us from in Michigan but it is not an animal related story. No we have moved onto the record breaking record setting portion of our podcast and this says that Guinness World Records as said a Michigan companies bid to set a new world record was successful when it amassed just a ball of lint weighing in at six hundred ninety pounds okay. I have some questions before we even get into this. who was the first person that was like like this giant ball of lint? I wonder if anybody else has a giant ball of lint. I wonder if my giant bowl is bigger than their giant Polo Flint and then who called up Guinness Book of World Records and said Hey. I have this Dr Ball of lint. Do you WANNA come out and verify that it's the biggest ball of lint that anyone has ever had and then who else decides you know. I want to break a record. Let's look in the Guinness Book of World Records Kurds and see what we could do. Lint everyone start cleaning out your dryers. I don't know let's read on to see what this article says but I just had to ask you my questions. These are the things that I that these are the things keep me up at night. dryer vent wizard see dryer wizard of Farmington hills already already see my answer. My questions being answered Dryer Vent Wizard Farmington Hills Michigan is in Michigan said started collecting lint from its locations across the country earlier in the year with the aim with aim toward assembling the world's largest lint ball and then lighting it on fire. We can't just accumulate. We have to light things on fire here but okay. This makes so much more sense if you are you know if your name is the dryer vent wizard than Lynch is right up your alley so the company predicted the ball would wait near one thousand pounds easily meeting. Go the Guinness goal of ninety nine pounds. Oh and the final the final L. product was officially weighed at six hundred ninety pounds still almost six hundred pounds beating the original record or the the standing record by almost six hundred pounds and then the ball was ignited after the official way in and the flames were extinguished by the local fire department again see now. I'm just thinking thinking your your member of that local fire department all right honey. I gotta go to work. We are extinguishing giant ball of went being set on fire today Sundays as you. Just don't know what your workday is going to bring right. They're definitely worse. Things definitely worse things than going and setting out setting going out and and dousing a giant lint fire. I wonder I wonder if so you don't lint that air was probably leeway not believable and I'm just thinking of a wind particles in the air and obviously the firefighters are in their firefighting gear but the onlookers are just standing there. I think everyone should wore masks to. I think too much it's possible. I'm okay with that. One Final Story we are moving out of Michigan but we're sticking sticking with that Guinness World Record theme this one takes us to Indiana and instead of a giant ball of lint now now we have paper mache sculpture and this is an Indiana University club created a fourteen foot tall paper mcshea sculpture that is being submitted to Guinness World Records for recognition as the world's tallest. I'm looking at the picture and from the picture sure I have no idea what it is but I'm not sure what else let's just. Let's let's keep going. The Indiana University South Bend Fine Arts Club said it's fourteen foot tall sculpture made from old at Morton's supermarkets comment cards. That's interesting itself and sixty gallons of wheat paste is over a foot taller than the current Guinness World record holder. Martin supplied the cards cards the club and asked for them to be turned into a work of art so that's cool you know. You've got to get rid of them you. Do we want to recycle them what we want to do with them. Let's give them to the art club and see what they can do with them when we brought the club we told them either way it's going to happen. It's too good of an opportunity for our community. We have to make this happen some way. Everyone in the club was about Uh. We all voted. It was unanimous. We're going to do it. This is from Colton siser president of the Fine Arts Club. He made this comment to. WB NDTV sizes said Paperwork and other evidence is being submitted to Guinness to have artwork recognized as the world's tallest paper mcshea sculpture so it's an art our project. It's a local you know. It's a it's a community project. I still don't know what it is. I liked it. It's made of old comment cards and I wonder if they're read the comment not cards while they were using them. I mean that's got to be a lot of fourteen feet tall. How many cards was there sometimes articles. Just don't answer the questions that I have. I WanNa know how many comic comet cards are in this fourteen foot tall statue sculpture. I WanNa know what the sculpture is or if I'm just dumb and I can't figure it out so many questions I have questions and that is maybe why I host a weird news podcast. I really don't know what to tell you on that. Do I have questions because they host to wear new slot cast I do. I host a weird news podcast because I have questions. I don't know let's just do one more quick story before we wrap this up and this is about cheese because it's cheese right and a celebrity fret celebrity French chef has sued the Michelin Guide after being demoted. Why was he demoted. Well apparently it's because he used Cheddar. A celebrity chef as I said is suing the Michelin Guide because he claims his restaurant lost its three star status for using cheddar cheese in a classic French dish. The the the chef is Mark Vera and his restaurant La Maison Dubois near Grenoble in the French Alps was demoted two two stars in January without warning just a year. After the restaurant secured the industry's highest award the guide which is the standard standard-bearer for the world's best cuisine has not yet explained of Demotion said Mr Ferrets lawyer however the shove himself says an inspector accused him of using Cheddar in a cheese souffle rather than a French rebel Sean Beaufort or and Tom Varieties. Maybe that's what happened. Maybe that's not what happened. the chef who is sixty nine said it was a fromage four. Paul from a man with an unsophisticated pallet so French isn't it from Aaj Faux Pas. I'm just picturing very ending at French chef. I put saffron in it and the gentleman who came thought it was Cheddar Cheddar because it was yellow. That's that's what you call knowledgeable. Please okay so it wasn't even Cheddar wasn't even Cheddar. He put saffron in it and it turned yellow anyway away. He told he said it's just crazy. It's worse than a wound. It's profoundly offensive. It gave me depression. It gave me a depression. I'm sorry for his depression. Russian and I'm into laugh but I can't stop picturing really stereotypical angry French chef he when he did make his name by champing championing his so-called botanical cooking using wild herbs gathered around his restaurants in his native out of Wa region region. He's famous for wearing wide-brimmed black savoyard hat and smoke tinted glasses..
"la maison" Discussed on KLBJ 590AM
"Yes. I'm calling about Gerber daisies, which I think maybe same problem a previous caller was having some of the Gerber daisies are coming up and blow blending and others are getting to the blossom stage and then going straight to see that fuzzy does study seed. And I have speckled on several of the lead like it looks on the fight mold but well because they are a low growing plant they by default have leaves in that zone where they are really susceptible to the various fungus diseases, both from rain and the fact that, that close to the ground. And you get higher humidity, LA LA LA, LA Maison pot. Probably doesn't make a difference. No. Because you're going to keep the soil on your pod wet stuff like that. But all that being said that little bit spotty nece really shouldn't affect how they're blooming. The ones that are blooming and the ones that are not the ones that are you're not seeing the flower open. But it looks like it's trying to go straight to a seed, it goes straight to looking like if a fuzzy bloom, had, you know, it just it's fuzzy okay things. There is actually a condition. And we used to make a big deal about it because it's a. I don't know that I really want to say a defect, but the process of forming the flower, the genetics of it can make a mistake, and it causes his really weird flower head, if you've ever seen various flowers where it looks like they're Siamese twins were to blooms or blended into each other, and they're very distinct. You can tell that there would normally be too, but they're connected together by the same effect that causes the, the flower not to produce the bloom correctly. It's not a problem other than you don't get the pretty bloom you you're looking for. The flower could still or excuse me, the plant could still make blooms that turn out normal. It's more just sat flower had a problem. Well, that's the thing I'll have I have like this morning. I took a picture. And there's perfectly good read one and then. Right. Next to it is one that just gone to the fuzzy feed thing, what you can do is, you can cut that stock off and what will happen is the flower will go. Oh, wait a minute. I was supposed to do X that flower is missing. Let me try to bloom again. So it can be quite literally just to that one bloom had a problem. And the next one may not the plant itself isn't bad. It could still continue to do find you could get a great set of blooms out of it. It's just a defect in the formation of that flower and defect is kind of a strong word. It didn't follow. Oh. The instructions on how to make a flower. It skipped a step now being that it's been so wet. Would it be good? Good spin the bottom leaves just the rent more air circulation plant you can if you can take off some of the ugly ones so anything that's actually touching. The ground itself would be good to remove and is it a little more airflow in their take out the dead leaves that can improve it that can reduce airflow really can reduce the amount of fungal diseases. Okay. 'cause the one I'm talking about is actually very heavy with leave. So I can just go in that out. Yeah. Just a little bit start on the underside, and that will help. Okay, cool. Thank you. Thanks for the call. Let's go to this is this is Lana. Good morning Alana. What can I help you with the morning it Lehner, Elaine? I'm sorry. Okay. I live villain. Also, I have a problem when my mountain law, and I was wondering about that. Because I saw the web on it. I didn't know what that was. But I've seen that on believe the oaktree a long time ago when I lived in Dallas. But I'm glad that, that Joan called earlier. I know what to put on my now for that. Yes. My question is, I had the one I bought the house. There was a lady that the family that lived in the house before me had these three trees in the backyard, and there's some kind of like it, it would produce like an apple but not an edible apple. With more like a guest an ornamental ornamental apple. It was kind of like a head bumpy skin, and it was green. Yes. Well, it would produce a lot and he don't think down. And then I had entity trees coming down. I didn't like him and I called them the trees from hail because they get as soon as they would spring up out of the ground. They would leave and they even had thorns on. Yup. And, and then I realized that even after I got rid of the trees, I still have problems because they the root system goes down underneath the soil and the grass, and they continually chooses top-up. Hop pop up at night you mome, but I'm even noticed that. They go under the ground. And to my neighbor's yard behind me. And one of the my neighbors is let the tree grow, but I'm the third house from the corner in love to the mailbox in even so one of those little ugly thing. Well out on the other side of my neighbors privacy on the very on the corner house. So unlike the does things like they spread everywhere they will produce what's called a thicket. That's what you're seeing where they get this dense cluster of them. The tree you're describing is called an osage. Orange also known as a horse, apple or a Bo dark tree. It was really important to the early settlers. The wood is super hard. You can make a a bow out of it was used to make fence line to keep cattle. In before they had a barbed wire. But that's one of the bad news is about it. It's got a nasty. Born. It's really productive on this horse, apple that falls on the ground in his full of seeds. So it can spread pretty easily. If I had a really large piece of property, and I wanted dad, some native to the landscape. I would love one of those trees, but in an urban setting it's probably you're discovering. You're not real happy with it. Knowing I'm afraid it even going under my house and messing with my Dacian dude shouldn't have that kind of effect on a foundation, but it can like cause a problem with fences. You know you gotta pick it fence. It's going to crawl under there and it's going to be growing on both sides, and you it causes trouble with your fence. It shouldn't be a foundation lifter but yeah, it's an annoying little pain. Do some not look up and call it, it is an osage. O. S. A. G. E. It's an osage, orange, or you will also see called a Bodnar Beal, I s d. Apostrophe. A. R C. They can be a great tree. But I'm really surprised somebody would plant them in like a subdivision. They can they can be a pain, sometimes literally. Oh, yes indeed, and I'm sorry, one more thing. And in the if, if I might I have a live oak tree in my front yard, and it's gotten pretty big, which is great, but noticed that the grass under the tree is not it's not growing. Does that mean I need to thin out the tree in the top is too many branches, not need enough sunlight? You can take the lowest branches may be removed one or two of those is called raising the canopy which allow more light underneath you have a choice grass doesn't grow in the shade. So you either, get to have the tree or you get to have grass sorry. It's a poor choice, but that's kind of what happens when you have a good healthy tree at shades out the. Grass day. Okay. All right. Thank you very much. Appreciate your help. Thanks for the call folks of Sherry, James sorry, where the bomb the are we gotta break. He'll be J.

Anybody there hacked hit chewing you the questions and giving you the healthcare that you need by. That's Callum LA Maison until you went there for your. I was always there for my general practitioner. I mean for my general doctor, but then I went there and I was like, I need birth control. And my doctor who also sees my wife was like, oh, tell me more about the. I need that. I need one that has a low professor on our hyper gesture. I don't remember to make my boobs get real big and pretend that I'm pregnant. Did the doctor know about the possible. Okay. So you opened this doctor's advice last. You're opening a lot of our lives. Yes, I know. Yeah, it's called induce lactation. So that was one step by did, and there's a great book on it called breastfeeding outside of the box. And then it was a lot of boob massage, like every as much as I could try to get the just like a Dow, all that good flowing, like thinking up all that tissue because I imagine that happens with blood flow when you're pregnant. Yeah. And just anything like actually, that you touch more gets more attention, so will your boobs like getting like, very, they were getting big and but were they sent? It was like that. I mean, he's so willing as it is, but like were they sensitive sensitive? Because frankly. They get sensitive. Mostly, my hands were sore. I was just massaging touching your boobs. I thought your wife would have done or your partner would have. Absolutely not. I have to pay her twenty bucks to rub my neck. I get it get. I really like her and like not department. She knows. So yeah. So then I went on some herbs and then I stopped the birth control. And then I just started pumping like as much as you would pump if you were feeding a baby, you like every three hours and went more than and nothing. Nothing. So how long were you pumping before? Stuff was coming out. Like stuff. Meaning like two drops, which I pictures of you. I mean, I would have been omega was like through the I know because you made that happen. Yeah. So like three months, maybe pump like three months. And you didn't did you ever during that time thing? This is just futile. We'll also there was a lot going on in my adoption at that point, like my birth moms circumstances where a little bit bananas and we were all living together and the birth mom was living with you. Yeah, yeah. So there was a lot of stuff going on. Meantime, you're lot of times. Hourly sing. I had to be like, I'm getting ready to go. It was like your anchor how interested. So it became this thing where I was like, I'm doing this even if this baby doesn't end up being placed with us. I don't imagine that when you're going through the adoption process, there's so many what ifs and there's so much uncertainty that having some sort of an anchor like that could actually. Yeah, it was for me. It was and it was a pain in the ass. I'm not gonna lie, but it was a little ritual that was just for me like, I'm you know. And then when the milk started coming in cold, you just found gold? Yeah. And you were able to fully breastfeed through just no. No. So I only made probably in the end, maybe four ounces a day. Those about as much as I can, which all of those parents out there that are, you know, just feeding and breastfeeding their babies..
"la maison" Discussed on The Indicator from Planet Money
"I live in New York City and I walk all over and there's this thing that has been puzzling me twenty third street twenty third street between six and seven avenues. It's midtown Manhattan. It is bustling. There are people pouring out of the subway or taxis everywhere. If you imagine a Manhattan traffic jam, this might be what you are picturing. Yeah, there's like horns, honking all the time. It's a Joan goal of skyscrapers, lots of tourists every once in a while, like the sewer at comes up or the subway. Rat comes up to visit to the surface. We call him. Splinter writes, it is crammed. There are crowds waiting to cross the streets. They're talking on their cell phones. You just wanna push everyone out of the way. But those crowds are also the reason that Manhattan real estate, that real estate is some of the most expensive on the planet because everyone around you. These are all potential customers. And yet for some reason, if you walk up and down twenty third street, they're all these empty storefronts the windows are dark. So to find out why I talked to Stephen Smith. He's a founder of Qantara the real estate inelastic sperm only signs I do see are warning rodent bait with skull-and-crossbone 's. Yes, yes. Wrote in bait the smell of marijuana in the air. I'm Sally Herships and I'm card if Garcia welcome to the indicator where everyday we tell you a short story about the economy today, empty storefronts what they need here in the nation's retail capital and elsewhere in the country. Support for this podcast and the following message come from swell investing and impact investing platform, invest in high growth companies of the future innovators and clean water, renewable energy and medical breakthroughs claim. Fifty dollar bonus through swell investing dot com slash indicator. Looking up and down the block. It would be fair to say this is a street in transition. But Stephen Smith says, despite the scary signs and the yellow caution tape in New York City empty storefronts are perfectly normal. Yeah. In the first explanation for them is empty storefronts or just a regular part of the city's retail, real estate cycled the rental market for stores works a little bit differently than it does for apartments. So for an apartment, it is totally normal to sign a one or two year lease, and then you might leave in the landlord can find somebody else to live there, but retail leases can last for a decade. So the landlords take their time. Sometimes they even take as much as a year or two before they get locked into a new tenant. So when we see all these stores closing, it's not a retail apocalypse in New York. No, it's like a slight retail winter, let's say. So the second explanation that slight wintry, chill that landlords twenty third street are feeling is from Amazon and. And it's related to that. I reason the way we shop is changing. So the things we go to the store for are now different and businesses are having to adjust to keep up with their dreaded e competitors. And so they're being even more careful to pick out just the right tenants into survive both here, New York City and in other parts of the country landlords increasingly are having to look for a specific kind of business. Retail experts called experiential retail things like bars, restaurants, live music, venues, things that you can't get from Amazon yet things that you can't get from Amazon yet bookstores video stores. Even a lot of clothing stores. Cardiff gone gone. What did we used to go to brick and mortar stores? Where remember remember hallmark when we used to buy greeting cards, kinda hazy memory. Yeah, something like that. And this is happening by the way to brands you've heard of according to core site research, which tracks the number of stores closing across the country last year about seven thousand stores from brands. Like footlocker, the gap j. crew WalMart, shut their doors that's an increase of more than two hundred percent from the year before and on twenty third street here in New York, wherever the spaces are not empty. Some of these brands. The past have been replaced by those experiential businesses, places like Daya fi, a laser beauty lounge at one thirty, four west twenty. Third street. I'm not even gonna pretend to know what that is. You want. Or peleton cycling studio or boxing gym called rumble. This is another experiential thing. You can't box online or you can burn very many calories, three gyms and how many we've just watched like half the ball of three gyms on one side of the block. We haven't even looked on the other side of the block who knows what's over there up and down the block in no particular order storefronts include but are not limited to a macaroni shop. LA Maison du my my friend just horrible lump zone, Mark, all the participation Venus. Well. Vienna's every. Nicely. Thank you Sally nicely done. I agree. It has very impressive, and even more impressive. Bat, French macaroni shop is near the gym so you can put on calories and then burn them off. There are also some delis if you're still feeling snacky to barbershops poster museum and three banks at the West End of the block Chinese food places moving in and there's a Domino's pizza, but there are still some places for rent a lot of empty store fronts. We've heard to reason so far for y, that might be one. Occasionally, there's a delay while landlords make sure they're committing to the right tenant, and we've also got the Amazon adjustment. That's the second reason, making sure you've got an experiential retailer moving in. So you can understand why those two things are related to each other. And there's a third explanation for empty storefronts and retail desert's that we haven't talked about yet, which is that shopping malls everywhere are closing their big anchor stores. Macy's JC Penney Sears. They've all been cl-. Closing up and that hurts the smaller stores also because fewer people are walking by them. Now, this does not apply to New York City. Not really. We don't really have a lot of malls here, but it definitely applies to the rest of the country. And those malls are now having to find tenants that are a little different from the ones they had in the past anthem, Blue Cross Blue shield signed a lease on a vacant. Macy's in Las Vegas mall in Henderson, Tennessee. The local post office is taking over a Sears and enrichment county, South Carolina. The county itself is taking over the space from a Sears Dillard's and Burlington coat factory. That's right. The county's administrative offices are moving into the mall. That is a sad day for people who used to go there and enjoy an orange. Julius, I dunno, I kinda wanna go take them all walk. I kinda wanna look at it to. These are things that in the past Malone are not of wanted because they, you know, might have detracted from the other tenants, but now you know everyone's making compromises which is apparently what New Yorkers have been doing for years because back onto. Third street Smith says, we are under retailed to be clear. He is saying there are not enough stores in New York City. Now, if I this seems a little hard to believe. New York is known for its abundance of stores. It's shopping according to the center for an urban future. There are six hundred, twelve Dunkin donuts in New York City. One of my favorite statistics Sally brought to us by the way, but it's also the case that New York City has weird zoning laws which can limit the amount of retail space. So maybe we are under stored. If you told me as a native New Yorker, there is not an retail Newark, I think he were. I think you're kidding. That's crazy. Yeah. I mean, I think you've just gotten used to the crowding inside stores, but you go to, you know, I was in LA last year and I went to a corner store and I was like where the things in New York, there'd be like ten times as many things in the store. And one of the reasons for that is because space is expensive in New York, you have to pack things, dental, you know, like you'll go into a deli in New York, and you know you need toilet paper and the toilet paper. Two out of your reach. So you have to ask the deli owner to get this little. You know, extender thing to get the toilet paper says, how many rolls toilet paper do you want? And you know, you got. Share that with the delegate to share your you know your toilet paper preferences delegate. Tell him which one you want. You want the cheap one. You're going to expensive on, you know, in the rest of the country pick your own toilet paper. The retail landscape is changing. Is it all going to be boxing gyms and macaroni and nails lawns? Because that would be kind of weird, weird or awesome. Experiential retail may work well in some places, but not in others. So like in smaller towns, how many boxing gyms can one smaller town or small city really support, and while landlords and retailers figure out what works and what doesn't. We may see more empty storefronts. I don't know. Maybe Amazon will figure out the online boxing gym. Maybe I'm sort of thinking back to my youth when I was playing Mike, Tyson's punch out. I feel like I did actually earn some calories doing that. I could see that I could see those you how good I was. Hey,

The most favored origin story ice cream is that it comes from China. So there are some references to a milk and rice mixture packed into snow for freezing as early as two hundred BC them during China's Tang period from six eighteen to nine seven. It's believed that version of ice cream was popular with the nation's rulers, and they actually had dedicated iceman. These men, they're entire job was keep the palace supplied with ice and they would bring that nice from the mountains. And then it would be combined with fermented milk which is called Koumas and camphor, and flour, and the dairy element could be sourced from a number of different animals that could be cow milk. Goat milk or buffalo milk in the camphor was used to enhance the texture and flavor. But that makes me have question marks in my head and my stomach because it seems like it would taste like mothballs. Right. Well, and I also wonder as we talked about in our episode on the history of cheese, how a lot of adults can't tolerate lactose. It because they haven't been their digestive systems. Haven't been gradually accustomed to it right in in Chinese cultures, and a lot of Asian cultures. Lactose intolerance is a lot more prevalent is not a big ingredient in a lot of Asian cooking. Yeah. So I kind of wonder whether either the fermenting process took down the amount of lactose, which probably. Yeah, actually, I think no. I think yeast used in brewing and fermenting does not electives. I'm super curious about this now to it's fascinating to think about, and I was surprised that it is the most favored story since we don't associate Asia and China specifically with a lot of dairy consumption rights. Interesting. And it could be that it was so rare that that was part of why it became a yummy palatial like special treat right that there was some level of exclusivity to it that made it appealing for all we know it totally upset their stomachs. A special treat that made you feel ill, but once all of these ingredients were combined, they would pack the mixture into these metal tubes in then submerged them in an ice pool for freezing, which is kind of cool to think about. I wonder if anybody does that style of ice cream making today, I would try it for sure. Those tastes like mothballs. I don't know if I would try camphor ice cream. I would try it out. I'm adventurous. I'll try almost anything somehow. I would be more inclined to eat bugs than camphor ice cream. But then there is a lot of things that happen having to do with the area of Turkey and Aarab cultures and how that kind of slowly gets ice cream and frozen treats into Europe, Europe and the European countries. And then it kind of takes a lot of big steps towards being the desert that we noted. They Arab peoples are said to have drunken iced slushy like servants style drink in medieval times. This was normally fruit-flavored and apparently it spread to several European cultures because it was so refreshing and tasty. Yeah, the travelers that travel around the Mediterranean and do trades with other countries kind of picked up this habit of drinking. It brought it right back home with them, and one of the supporting elements for the belief that ice cream, tr true, I scream I'm making the air quotes, originated in Italy, comes from their knowledge of chilling, various beverages in the mid to late fifteen hundreds. Using a slurry of salt Peter and snow to like submerge things and quickly almost flash freeze them. And we know this was used for wine to cool it down. But it's believed that this process may have also been applied to chilling these slushy shirts that they had discovered and picked up as a habit when they were travelling, and they were sometimes called Turkish sorbets and the word sorbet is one in different European cultures. As history goes on, it really gets traded around in ways that are not consistent. Different things were being called sorbet that we would define differently I think today. So that's a tricky one. If you're reading any of the the passages or sources we list in the show notes just know that sorbets a word that gets kind of tossed around without consistency. Yeah. Well, and if you've if you've ever seen, you know an old fashioned ice cream maker do its thing. You can sort of see a seed of that process in this whole idea of using a slurry of cell Peter and snow. Snowed cool stuff down. Yeah. So they weren't onto at early sorbet as we know it was invented. When these icy drinks were made into hard frozen treats that incorporated sugar. The man who gets the credit for this is Antonio Latini who was working as a steward to the chief minister minister of the Spanish viceroy in Naples. In the late sixteen hundreds. He further experimented added dairy to the mix in Latinas, books, calc. Oh, Allah Madeira which means convert to the modern. He included recipes for lemon strawberry sour cherry chocolate and cinnamon ice and milk ice that's often cited as the first two ice cream recipe. I would eat any of those. They sound very interesting cinnamon. I sounded really interesting to me mostly because my husband really loves cinnamon and in sixteen eighty six, a cafe in Paris opened. Sometimes it's called Il Prokop. Sometimes Looper cope. Sometimes cafe cope, but it's proprietor was actually Sicilian. It was a man named Francesco per COPA day kotelly and it offered a variety of ice treats in some historians credit him with bringing gelato to France. But other say his cafe only offered very cold beverages. So there's some discrepancy about what was really on the menu and whether he was importing ice cream to France. But what's really interesting is that that cafe is still open today so you can go visit it. That's all it really has the established. Sixteen eighty six sign above it. You can go. Let's go now. All right. Get in the car. The French had already been experimenting with ice cream like treats specifically a concoction called Romansch, which is very similar to ice cream. This was not made with cheese, even though it has the same word as cheese. It's not completely clear why the two words share the same name, but it's possible that the frozen dairy dessert was chilled inches molds as for MAs developed and started to be referred to as niche, which is the French word for snow and then gloss, which is what it's now called today. It became incredibly popular throughout the country. And in sixteen ninety two, which was the same year Latinas cookbook for ISIS, came out a French cookbook for similar desserts entitled LA Maison reggae, which is a well ordered home was written by nNcholas other Jay, and it was touted as being quote, the true methods for making all sorts of water, essences, an liquors, strong and refreshing in the Italian style. Auberges book was much clearer in its recipes and instructions, and it's spelled out exactly how to make cram glossy, which is I and cream the use of a bucket inside of another bucket with the gap between the two filled with ice and salt is described as well as the method for stirring the mixture in the interior bucket as it freezes until it has the consistency of snow, which is really how ice cream still gets made. Yep. You're making it into funky science experiment, which yes or if you're in a factory, but when people have their home machines, that's it's really the same deal. Going on an auditees book. You can actually read online. If you are fluent in French, we will have that link in the show notes. My French is not good enough to follow a recipe of that nature. It's kind of mediocre, but then sort of an interesting thing happened in this is sort of the point where it becomes a very American treat. So all ice cream existed in Europe for many. Two years prior and the recipes in the love of the tree traveled across the Atlantic with the colonists in the seventeen forties. There's also this kind of wacky mythological tale, the attributes the invention of ice cream to Martha, Washington. The story claims that she left a bowl of sweet cream outdoors overnight an accident. We stumbled upon the creation when she discovered the forgotten dish, which had frozen the next morning. And of course, this is completely untrue. We have instances of ice cream going on way before that. And there's actually the first account of ice cream in America is in a letter from seventeen forty four, which was written by guest of William bladen who was the governor of Maryland in this guest was writing of the time that he visited with politician and what was served while he was there in ice cream was one of the things so so even though Martha Washington did not invent ice cream, George Washington did love it. Like that's an understatement. I think he really super loved it. Yeah, in the seventeen eighty four ledger for mount Vernon, there's a record of an ice cream machine being acquired for the sum of one pound thirteen shillings and three Pence, and even with his own ice cream turns at home in seventeen ninety. George Washington is said to have spent two hundred dollars over the course of one summer on ice cream at a local shop which is apparently close to a hundred thousand dollars of today's money. This may have contributed to the wooden teeth mythology. Well, and it's funny when I was talking to my husband about this because I was blathering on about how interesting I found it. He wondered if it wasn't because he had the wooden teeth. Ice cream was a yummy thing. He could easily because it would melt in his mouth. I think everyone had. I mean, definitely everyone had terrible teeth at the time yet, but George Washington's terrible teeth are in our infamous. Yes. This episode is brought to you by stamps dot com.
