"Hmm. Okay. If I am 6 40 it is the dark secret place our number three Brian suits in here until 11 for what we like to call Warhol IX. Um and I have a really good one for you this hour. Asai said in the set up there at the end of the last hour, you know, I I don't wanna be arrogant, but I've done Um Hmm. Ah, lot of personal reading and research into the history of special forces, Especially the origin stories and World War two just to review the British s a s. Originated in World War 2 1942 nearly disbanded permanently, but came back the latter part of World War two on really set the standard for special forces around the world. For the Americans. There was the joint U S Canadian unit, the first Special service Force, which was the closest first thing to, uh to special forces in American military history. And, in fact, the first special service force Adopted crossed arrows on there. The officers did other colored lapels on their lapels as their branch and that is now the bread. The insignia of Special Forces. Special Forces officers enlisted where Crossed arrows, which to be fair. The origin of that of the cross. Taro is Indian scouts from the late 18 hundreds. So so a man, Jim my surprise when I was given a book that I'd never even heard of cold. The last ditch By David Lamp l E M P E came out in 1968 Okay. I couldn't even read yet. The book has been out that long. And I've never read it and it absolutely blew me away. And, um s so I'll tell you why. Like I said, they're the end of our number to put yourself in the mind of Winston Churchill. And it's May of 1940, the German army as blips creed across Poland in September of 1939 within two weeks over running two thirds of the country. Then, of course, Stalin invaded from these In the interim, Germany invaded the Scandinavian countries, Denmark and Norway, both mechanized, rolling into Denmark, and then paratroopers into Norway. And it was all very swift. On Then, in May of 1940, they invade the low countries Luxembourg, Belgium, Holland and go all the way in into France, and they're rolling over everybody, right? And this was after several months of prep. This was when it was clear when Britain and France declared war on Germany in September 39. They had a couple months to prepare, and they still got Brushed aside So what was next? Um Churchill assumed the worst, he said. They're not going to roll up to the English Channel and then stopped there. They're going to cross the channel while we're down on her knees and they're going to invade England. My worst case scenario is that they invade England and they begin blitzkrieg going up to Scotland. In that event. I need a absolute Oh crap plan. And Churchill, Um, the consummate Englishman, right? And of course, you know, of all the upper crust or all the officers and general headquarters and and all that, And Churchill said is, his staff said, Well, that's okay. Prime Minister because we have the home guard. The home guard. Were these broken down old men or crippled people, guys who were missing a hand or whatever. And they, you know there's there's the stereotypes of them out Drilling with broomsticks and pitchforks and all this and they were supposed to be in case done. Kirk failed and hundreds of thousands of English soldiers were captured, then the home guard would be the ones bearing the brunt of the German invasion. And so they said, That's okay. Prime Minister We have the home guard. You know when they'll fight like lions, you know, on the whole thing, and Churchill knew that that was not what he wanted. Hey, didn't want conventional platoons and companies and battalions without tanks because they all were captured in France. He needed to put it bluntly terrorists he envisioned when he sat down with his right hand man, General Ismay. And then he said, the only hope we have is not the home guard. It's not old men in slit trenches, re fighting World War one because they will not slow down the Germans. If anything, the home guard should be practicing to retreat. Our only hope is that we delay the Germans for several weeks so that we can organize the resistance in the north of England up in Scotland, maybe out in Wales to the West because they're going to invade. Along thing, just Channel Coast or the East Coast. So if if we surrender territory to them, we're not not like we're gonna have a choice. But if we can buy ourselves a couple weeks and not fall In in in a fortnight the way Poland did. There's a chance that we can rush reinforcements from Canada on, but maybe we can convince the United States tol get involved The But the worst case of the worst case scenario is We need to buy ourselves two weeks at the very least, to evacuate Parliament, the bulk of our military, the royal family, the crown jewels of Magna Carta. The whole thing we we, If we're facing defeat, somebody has to buy us. Two weeks. And so was born. The auxiliary units. I'd never heard of them before, either. Um, Part of the reason is that it's still classified by the official Secrets Act in Great Britain. And when that book was written in 1968, the Veterans of World War two who were in the auxiliary units and had reason to be proud, said Hey, I can't even tell my wife that I was in the auxiliary units and some yank comes over and publishes a book. What's going on and The the Crown said it's okay. You got a lapel pin. So the story of the auxiliary units, this is gonna blow you away because the on leeway to describe Churchill's strategy for slowing the Nazi juggernaut down Was to be ruthless. Throw out all the laws of war of the conventions of war and commit acts of murder and terrorism terrify the crap out of the Germans. Blow up their fuel dumps their ammo dumps, etcetera. In other words, cells of men, highly trained men were going to stay behind and they were going to Terrify and terrorize. The invading Germans, But wait You won't believe how ruthless they were prepared to get when we come back. How are they recruited? What did they do? What was there mission when we come back the auxiliary units of World War two. You're not going to find them. I mean most books and they won't be mentioned because it was That seek 80 years later. It's still that secret right of this. It's a dark secret place Brian suits in here until 11 cave. I am 6 40 live everywhere on the I Heart radio app getting Max with the news..

"Stives under this rubric as well. They're currently more than 1/2 dozen combat command reviews underway, beginning with US Africa Command, which began late last year, and the most recent being U. S Space Command. Today. We want to update you on the status of our U. S European Command Review, which was accelerated with the president's decision in early June to reduce our footprint in Germany. And our plans to reposition our forces in Europe to be better situated for great power competition. It is important to note that in NATO's 71 year history, the size composition and disposition of U. S forces in Europe has changed many times. Sometimes this has been a result of changes in the threat sometimes because of other changes in the international environment, and sometimes simply because the borders between NATO countries and Russia have shifted as new allies have joined. As we've entered a new era of great power competition. We're now at another one of those inflection points and NATO's history and I'm confident the alliance will be all the better and stronger for it. Since June you calm has done excellent work and developing a plan that achieves the president's objective and meets the following five principles that I gave General Walters as he and his staff began their planning. First Enhance Deterrence of Russia. Second, strengthen NATO third Reassure allies forthe improve US strategic flexibility and you calm operational flexibility and fifth take care of our service members and their families in the process. The president approved the Yukon Plan in late June. We briefed key members of Congress last week and the team and I spoke with NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg and directly affected allies over the past few days as we share the plane with you. I want to note that this plant is subject to and likely will Change to some degree as it evolves over time. The current Yukon plan will reposition approximately 11,900 military personnel from Germany from roughly 36,000 down to 24,000 in a manner that will strike the NATO enhanced the deterrence of Russia and make the other principals I set forth of the 11,900 nearly 5600 servicemembers. We will be repositioned within NATO countries and approximately 6400 will return to the United States, though many of these or similar units will begin conducting rotational deployments back to Europe. The broad strokes of these moves are as follows. First, various United States headquarters will be consolidated in locations in Europe outside of Germany, including in some cases co locating at the same locations as their NATO counterparts in Belgium and Italy. This will strengthen NATO and improve the operational efficiency and ready Over 2000 servicemembers in these headquarters second, the nearly 4500 members of the second Cavalry Regiment will return to the United States as other striker units begin continues rotations farther east in the Black Sea region, giving us a more enduring presence to enhance deterrence and reassure allies along NATO's South eastern flank. 3rd 25 2500 airman based in building Hall, United Kingdom who are responsible for Ariel Rolling and special operations and who had been scheduled to re base to Germany will remain in the United Kingdom, thus ensuring the uninterrupted readiness and responsiveness of these units forth a fighter squadron and elements of a fighter wing will be repositioned to Italy, moving them closer to the Black Sea region and better capable of conducting dynamic force employments and rotational deployments to NATO southeastern plank in addition to these moves, and the rotational forces announced By President Trump and Polish President Duda in 2019. We also plan on rotating for the lead element of the Army's newly established Fifth Corps headquarters to Poland wants Warsaw signs a defense cooperation agreement and burden sharing deal as previously pledged. There are maybe other opportunities as well to move additional forces into Poland and the Baltics. Our aim is to implement these moves as expeditiously as expeditiously as possible, consistent with the principles I set forth from the get go from the beginning, particularly being fair to and taking care of our service members and their families. We could see some moves begin within weeks. Others will take longer as anyone could see. The repositioning of our forces in Europe constitutes a major strategic and positive shift, Holy in line with the NDS and consistent with other adjustments to the United States adjustments. States is made within NATO and previous times. These changes will achieve the core principles of enhancing US and NATO deterrence of Russia, strengthening NATO, reassuring allies and improving U S strategic flexibility and you calm operational flexibility. And, of course, at all times, we were prioritize our most important resource. Our service members and their families know moves will take place without third communication with our people continued engagement with Congress. And consultation with our allies. Thank you. And I will now turn it over to the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General heightened and then Eucom Commander General Walters. Thank you, Mr Secretary. Good morning, everyone. And thanks for being here today. Looking back in history. NATO was established more than 70 years ago by 12 countries who signed the North Atlantic Treaty right here in Washington, France, Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands comprised the eastern flank has other nations joined NATO. Eastern flank shifted to Germany and has continued to expand further into eastern Europe. Now, with 30 countries and NATO, so another re balance is essential. One of our primary mission is to prevent another great power Warren to maintain great power peace, the national defence strategy. The NDS guides our efforts to adapt the force and the Yukon Plan optimizes our force posture in Europe as we seek to the term align actors there this rebalance consistent with the NDS for Aline, NATO and U com. Cape Billies better distribute forces across Europe and increase the use of rotational forces, thus bolstering our commitment to Europe. It enhances deterrents and improves operational flexibility. Repositioning our forces and making consolidations will provide General Walters as the commander increased ability that dynamically employ his force. This effort will increase opportunities to partner with and strengthen our bond with allies and partners in the recent region will also require additional planning and Salutation with our allies and let me emphasize that point we have been and we will remain transparent and collaborative is planning and execution moves forward I had the opportunity is the secretary just mentioned to speak with a number of my military counterparts over the last week to preview the force posture changes in Europe that we've outlined every day. Our allies and partners join us and defending freedom, deterring war and maintaining the rules, which underwrite a free and open international order. This strategic posture really I'm on in Europe and other actions in dope. A calm is taking his well should send a clear, unmistakable message to our competitors. The joint forces committed to acting, his opportunities arise to counter malign activities, and we remain position to deter military aggression against the US and our allies. While we hope that Russian China will engage in more productive and cooperative behavior in the future, we're posturing our forces to deter aggression and counter there malign influence. So secretary highlighted many of the details. I won't go into those, but I want to take Brief moment to just touch on the impact or forcing our families for almost four years. I've watched our people in her family's sacrifice for this country. It's remarkable what they've done what they continue to do, and I believe that's the greatest advantage that we as the United States of America have. It's our people in the army, the Navy, the Air Force Marines, our families, the people we have to do this mission or most incredible..

"Century, the transformation from Victoria to what we understand today, which is in ninety kingdom participating in the European Union all of that takes place. Thanks to Winston Churchill as our guide and Andrew who interviewed Winston Churchill in heaven is here to pass on his inside. Andrew, congratulations. You told me when we last met which was at the end of our interview on the Polian that you siemian for years who we are. And I said, what are you working on new Tercel? I said, oh, my so in preparation, I very carefully read through and listen to other Churchill biographies, but there is an enormous amount of fresh material here, it's coming all the time. And I want to begin in our conversation with a revelation you take us to Buckingham Palace. This is may ninth. Nineteen forty at six o'clock at night may tenth may ten Winston Churchill arrives in his best. And finest to meet with the king King, George the sixth and kick yours the six sits down. We know. What's going to happen? He's going to invite Winston Churchill and become the premier. However, the king thanks to your revelation. Does not believe that Winston knows. And he says to him I suppose he's talking to the first Lord of the. Admiralty at this moment with the government trembling, I suppose, you don't know why I have sent for you. And Winston says, sir. I simply couldn't imagine would each of the end what is the drama of that strange conversation. Good evening. Good evening may I preface my remarks by saying what a great joy, it is to be back on your show Jomon. Thank you very much for inviting me the drama radio. The situation is as you say the king needs to appoint Winston Churchill because Neville Chamberlain has resigned. The king believes that Winston Churchill doesn't know why he's been summoned to the palace Winston Churchill highly. And of course knows precisely why he's been summoned to the palace. And so when the king says, I don't suppose, you know, why I've sent for you the king Winston Churchill thinks that's a joke. And so he owns says the king. I I have no idea. Upon which they get on with the business of of him kissing hands and becoming prime minister. However, it becomes clear from the king's diary that he genuinely didn't think that Winston Churchill me why he was being summoned to the palace on the day. Became prime minister, the crisis is a hand the country is falling down steps will that morning. Of course, Adolf Hitler hood unleash blitzkrieg on the west. He had invaded Luxembourg Belgium. He was very clearly gates be moving into France, very soon afterwards. And so the European history. Really was coming to a crux moment. Yes. On that same day on that team day. And I want to characterize some of these players before we review Winston what got him to that moment. He is senior to become the premiere of the government senior at this point. And he had at some point given up on the idea that he could ever become prime minister in previous years. However, a series of accidents, and what you'd have to say destiny intervenes at this point. What is it about Neville Chamberlain? When Chamberlain saw the king earlier that day he said call Winston that was because of the meeting the previous day on the ninth. Lord Halifax the foreign secretary had effectively given up the opportunity of becoming prime minister Churchill's chance was really made by Halifax because they've Neville Chamberlain and the king Woolsey to Halifax to be prime minister. And loot fax recognize that actually Churchill would make the better prime minister. He he was somebody who had held many of the great offices of state viceroy of India under normal peacetime circumstances. Heated made a good prime minister. However, these were not normal circumstances. And so it's how a fax this decision to refuse the premiership that opens the door. Winston Churchill and isn't extrordinary that after all of those years that there was nobody else. There wasn't a third candidate. It's incredible. Really, the the whole of the choice came down to one person who really wanted it desperately Winston Churchill and had wanted it all his life and somebody who. Did but wasn't going to take it on under those circumstances? Why is it challenging to magin that? They would choose Winston in a moment of crisis. This is may have nine hundred forty at the end of the month will become a catastrophe. We remember as Dunkirk. However, the explanation for why this is so overwhelmingly impossible to believe accepted. It happens. We go to a previous may nineteen fifteen twenty five years exactly before Winston Churchill, then was a member of government. He was serving the prime minister Lord asquith, what happened in may of nineteen fifteen that makes this impossible event in one thousand nine hundred forty possible. Well, he was the first Lord of the admiralty. So he was the political leader of the Royal Navy during the first we'll cheering in may nineteen fifteen during the first World War, and he had really come up with the idea and very much fought for the idea a g. Genius idea in many ways of getting the Royal Navy through the straits of the Dardanelles mooring it's off estan bul then Constantinople and effectively taking an empire. The Turkish empire out of the first this is what we remember as Gallipoli the well, it starts with adult Nells attack on the eighteenth of March, which is a disaster where six British and French ships sunk, and then it goes onto the literally peninsula largely because Churchill insisted that it should on the twenty fifth of April nineteen fifteen and unfortunately that too is a is a disaster. And it leads ultimately throughout the following months to the killing a winding of one hundred sixty thousand allied troops, many of them from the empire most of them from the impasse, quite a few French, but actually most of them British and and of course, many from Australia and New Zealand as well. And so the problem in one thousand nine hundred forty is very much. Everyone remembers this as being one of many. Breakdowns in Churchill's judgment. And they fear that it might happen. Again. He was understood to be reckless. He was understood to be not a team player. He had no supporters in one thousand nine hundred fifteen when they threw him off the cabinet. Well, not quite they they demoted him. So that he had a minor portfolio. Yes. Chancellor of the duchy of Lancaster, which was a sinecure post which way you appointed local judges, and that was that was pretty much it. That's what happened to him in nineteen fifteen and from nineteen fifteen thousand nine hundred forty he really hadn't done anything that reversed the Dardanelle catastrophe. They still Frewin at him. Well, that's why people shout at what about the Donald and asked him when he was making public speeches throughout the nineteen twenties. He had of course, made some cardinal errors in the nineteen twenties and thirties, he took us back onto the gold. Standard a long time in the wrong level in one thousand nine hundred ninety five he was on the wrong side. During the abdication crisis in one thousand nine hundred eighty six heat got women's suffrage, Rome. He got a lot of things wrong. Winston Churchill, and that's why his judgment is being constantly called into question. And why everyone was so nervous about him. Being a prime minister in may nineteen forty we begin with Winston Churchill sixty five nineteen forty. We went to Winston Churchill at forty very young member of the cabinet. And it reveals that he had made mistakes that we're never forgotten. Never never was he'd given a moment of saying wasn't you Winston? It was collective leaders. And also he was blamed for a lot of things that he wasn't actually responsible for he was transferred of the exchequer between nine hundred twenty four thousand nine hundred twenty nine and he was very very much blamed for the general strike, and it's aftermath and that wasn't his fault. There are lots of things in fact that he was blamed for that he actually Deng Motherwell over including the first World War. But once you give a bad name. It really did. Dick, and it became useful for government after government to fault. Winston even when he was our government writing books. Now, we're going to turn back to the younger Winston, we're going to go back to one thousand nine hundred thousand nine hundred one just about the time, Victoria dies. And her son becomes king because that begins to reveal this risk taper. Our man who the his colleagues called H thruster thruster, which is not a good term for Victorian England.

"Completed the ninth grade and only eighty two and a half percent have graduated from high school. That is a staggering number of people that have not. When we talk about the issues, we the history lesson of immigration that we just went over. And how we're doomed to repeat it. If we don't understand. If we aren't teaching our kids about the holocaust what our the greatest generation the World War Two generation. We're able to accomplish d day. I was in. I was in France. I went to Normandy in Luxembourg Belgium over the anniversary of d day last June. And as much as I am a a student of history. There was nothing like standing in those places. Utah beach Omaha beach point to hawk the Pegasus bridge going to these different places and meeting some of the men who fought there, and realizing that they were eighteen nineteen years old when they did it. And the struggle. That they had to endure and had it failed. What America would look like? That everybody east of the Mississippi would probably be speaking German and everybody west of the Mississippi would be speaking Japanese. That there is a necessity. Teaching not just what we've done, but why we've done it. The consequences of intervening or not intervening. Should we have intervened earlier, maybe Pearl Harbor doesn't happen? Those questions would Hitler's impact on the world had been diminished. Had we done some kind of a preemptive strike. But that's just one part of education. When you see a statistic where you're setting people up to fail. And it's a system where you are throwing billions of dollars at the problem with no accountability. Really? It makes me wonder what education is in America. Is it a business? Because if it is it's failing except the executives which would be the, you know, the teachers unions and the big organizations invested in education aren't going to lose their paycheck. And I'm I'm torn because when I go into high schools and speak with students, these are thoughtful people, they are not selfish mine numb idiots. They're portrayed to be sometimes.

We we, you know, there was one teacher that was fired because school policy said the lowest grade, you can give us a fifty percent. So even if you don't turn in a piece of paper, you don't get zero.

"The Senate that maybe you've never heard of the American family active twenty seventeen. One of the reasons you might not have heard of it is because it was introduced by Michael Bennett, a Senator from Colorado and for about a year after it was introduced there was only one co-sponsor Sharon Brown from Ohio. It's picked up a little more support. Cory Booker has signed onto it and camera Harris has signed on to it. And if you want to know what the common denominator is amongst these four. People. They're all Democrats because and this will not surprise you. When you hear what it is the American family act of two thousand seventeen says that the government will give. Three thousand dollars a year. To every family that has a kid. Or if the child is under the age of five thirty six hundred dollars a year and will pay it out in monthly checks. So two hundred fifty a month or three hundred dollars a month. No strings attached. And the only people who can't get it are people who make too much money, and those people are defined as a single parent making seventy five thousand dollars a year or more one hundred and ten thousand for a married couple. And then it goes up if you have more than one kid. So for example, if you have a married couple with two kids, they would have to make one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year or more before they would not get a nice monthly check. Sounds like a socialists damp dream, this whole thing. And if it does it's because it kind of is in the sense that it's not a new idea might be a new idea here in the United States of America. But it's not a new idea around the world. Luxembourg Belgium, Austria Germany Finland Denmark, Sweden. Norway, France Ireland. Germany. They all have programs like this. Now, one of the things this highlights to me is how complicated our whole tax system is so you have people who make money, and then they pay taxes you have other people who make money and they pay taxes, but they pay less taxes because there are certain economic activities for which you get deductions. Like having a child you have dependent. You get to take a deduction on your taxes. But there are a lot of people who don't earn enough money to pay any taxes. So you can't really take a deduction from nothing. And that's where things like the earned income credit come in. And this idea. It's supposed to fight child poverty. That's the idea. And we have some dismal numbers in this country. If you look at it statistically, we have a lot more children living in poverty than in these other countries. So some people have connected the dots. And they have said, well, obviously, the reason is because these countries all have programs that give money to people. They're not giving you the money for having the kid there giving you the money for raising the kid. But of course, you have to have the kid to raise the kids. So really, I I would not argue with you. If you said this is money for having a kid. Maybe that's not strictly technically, correct? But that is kind of the idea. One of the big concerns. It's one of the first things I thought of is. Well, you're just giving money literally. A check comes in the mail, and there's no strings attached other than I guess you have to have a kid. But there's no in other words, that's money. You can spend that money on anything you want. You can spend that money on diapers or you can spend that money on vape cartridges, they're never gonna know. And you see in the news stories of what's the phrase, welfare, queens, or whatever you always hear about oh, the woman pulled up to the grocery store and a Mercedes and then got out and used her food stamps. The level of abuse of the system is not as rampant as those kinds of headlines would lead you to believe there is some abuse of the system really what we need to know is is there any good evidence about what happens when you have a program like this, and you give a parent or a family, you just give them money that is supposed to be used for their kid. If only there were some good research. Well, there is there's actually a lot of it Sam Houston state university. They did a study of the system in Germany. It's called kindergarten. They call it over there. And they found out that when children got onto that benefits program and money was coming to the family, the family spent more on food, but not more on hall. Okay. That's the minimum thing that you should expect. There was a study done on the earned income tax credit in this country. And that study found that every dollar spent on earned income tax credit money resulted in a six percent decrease in spending on tobacco and a seven percent decrease in spending on alcohol. There was another study the eastern band of Cherokee Indians their casinos began paying dividends to its members. And they found that crime rates dropped that on time high school graduation rates increased and the incidence of psychological problems went down. You can see the same thing with programs in Canada. So if you look at it empirically, there may be some benefits to us for cutting these checks, obviously, it all depends on what people do with the money if they use it responsibly. It has great benefits for society. And if they don't then they really are just taking your money and throwing it down the sewer. So I suppose you have to ask yourself how much do you trust your fellow American? It'll be time for handle on the news late edition, right after we get some news here on KFI AM, six forty from Jennifer Jones leap LA county, supervisors have decided to turn. A rope remote ranch into a new community to home ranch on the northern edge of LA county is set to have almost twenty thousand new homes. Go up the area is about seventy miles from downtown LA. Supporters say the development will help the housing crisis. And lead to new job opportunities plans for the new community have been in the works. For decades.

"Well, this summit had been portrayed last month by Donald tusk in Salisbury. They were having an informal summit that this summit this week here in Brussels was the maker break of deal for Brexit.

That was the fact that this dinner meeting at which the twenty seven members that will members say that will be remaining. In the their leaders had a dinner meeting, and then right afterwards, four of the members and this would be Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium, and France.

Setback last weekend wouldn't is her position on Brexit and how is this affected her political strength is kind of the ripple effect of it. She's toned down her harshness. I mean, she's still adamant that there has to be a deal because the latest estimates show that Germany could lose upwards of one hundred, ten billion dollars if Brexit goes through without some sort of deal. So there's a lot riding on this for for Germany, but she's also toned down. I mean, she doesn't want to make this, I guess, look like yet. Another thing that she hasn't been able to handle. So she talked instead at this at the summit and she did not make any. Statements, but the one she made was that I have a skill at or I always look at creating consensus and finding an agreement. And that's what I'm going to focus on because I still think that we can do this women. I should mention there really is a sense among the remaining twenty seven members of the other. I should say twenty seven members of the block that the UK is basically on purpose, delaying this in order to force concessions to put put the pressure to a point where there's no time left and the EU will have to cave. Of course, the UK sees it the opposite way as well. Yeah, that's NPR's Berlin correspondence riots hardy Nelson in Brussels at the Brexit summit today. So I thanks as always. You're welcome, Robin.

Not government. Ease that will walk you through and where? You can call for information. That. May or may not be, accurate that will walk you, through what the options would be specifically for you all right but the male. Or you got just throw it in the, circular file or any Email you get just delete. That's. Rather what, I've been doing but I figured that anybody you would well I'm glad you asked. About it and? I'm, glad you're. On a good track to pay them off anyway at this point Ryan is with us Hello Ryan. How are you I'm fine thanks for. Taking my call Ryan. You're headed off to Europe it's quite an event I'm 'cause I was in, the air force and I. Got married in England nineteen sixty eight in December so that wasn't a good. Time of the year for honeymoon to navigate money so in, may I took because a couple of weeks leave I think we have two, hundred and fifty dollars took a train to Paris and we, have a book Europe and five dollars. A day which is very helpful at that time I. Remember, that was the book. That launched. Arthur frommer. Yeah I still have it you. Don't we have we, have our scrap boy anyway we went. To Geneva Switzerland on a train in from Geneva we hitchhiked had no idea where we were going ended up and Griswold interlocking up into the Alps and up over into Liechtenstein, up, into, a little bit Austrian, back in Germany Luxembourg Belgium and back in England stayed in youth. Hostels, and. We met a Gentleman input such Liechtenstein at a cafe is it helps us interpret the menu and leave or not I found this, man, about, six months ago and, located him that was in nineteen sixty nine When we that's amazing. Next Wednesday we leave for Geneva We're fine to, Geneva was two backpacks and we never. Went backpacking before and we're going to do. The same hopefully the same thing We're winging it well. Let me tell you in Switzerland people, don't hitchhike anymore somebody told me, that they are one of the very. Wealthiest countries on earth So that's probably not? Gonna make it happen for you why hope because we're well we're sick but. I'm sixty seven and my wife sixty four well what. About renting a car we're we're planning anything. As, far as how. It's, gonna go other than Landon it's. Here for we'll see. If you rent a car you can go wherever the car takes you yeah Yeah but, that that would, take the fun out, of you think so yeah well you know. Or first trip was really really the way to go we met people we, saw things that we wouldn't have seen if we restores it was. Absolutely probably one of the best experiences in our life I think that is so, fantastic it's just different. Now well I know we're everybody tells we're we'll find out really you're not going to be absolutely spectacular trip know you'll have a great time, because we're going to end back in. England the. Latter part of the month for going for the whole month, now, we do have a rail pass Franklin is that for, most of the relatives some friends we have the other. Part will? Be just relying, are some, in youth hostels I think the thumb thing you. Got, to put that aside and? Maybe consider and if you wanna stay in hostels that's fine and then as. Far as getting around using the Swiss rail well I. Know I'm taking all the fun out of. This Or you might end up being the the one thing I wanted to know like I I don't even have I guess they, call it a a MAC card a. Debit card. Or whatever I have I got one from our local Bank. Very, helpful because they show you should have one over there Got to here and you sat and then some people. Said. Well you can also use your credit card, yeah but with your credit cards how many. Credit cards do. You. Have are you USAA member having served in the, military I have a, visa and MasterCard right so you call each issuer. And you ask them what their? Foreign currency transaction fee is okay now. I get find out from the visa which will? Probably? Be the one, I use it's one percent. Great so, you just you just, wear that thing out but before you go. You gotta make sure they know. You right countries you're going to be on right so they don't shut. You down now would it. Be better to use a credit card, then the Bank card I use the credit card you know when you're in. Switzerland get your Swiss francs right from. An ATM, but what I did, I got I've already got a couple of hundred, bucks of each of the currency I. Got some Swiss francs I got some. Euros and some pounds then you may not need to withdraw Aw money Many yeah but you may not need to because different from when you were there in the sixties where nobody knew what a credit card was Europeans like us use credit cards or debit cards for every. Last, thing well everybody I know here does and. We don't I don't even know how to use the Bank card which you want to there because the exchange rate you get is substantially better using your credit card then. Using. Cash okay at the youth hostels you're gonna find that a lot of them will not take. Credit, cards well. We did we had to book one when we landed. In Geneva we did book a youth hostel for that first night because we're going to. Be tired we want to replace at least for, one night you know where we're saying and they take your credit card as far as. A deposit. That's good and we joined the youth hostel for a year of thirty five dollars for. The, two Two of. Us I am so glad alright so when you're traveling around are you web savvy now Don't I can sit, and watch. YouTube, forever meal TV shows and that's it I I still have an old dial phone I use well the reason. I was asking, that it'd be so fun if you sent in pictures from your travels around Europe as. You said you're sixty seven sixty seven staying in youth hostels trying to thumb your rides around Europe that would be quite a sight to see with your. Backpacks and as you as. You're in the youth hostels you'll learn from other people of all ages things you should be doing. But I am just smiling ear to ear because I want to tell you something Ryan fit chance I could get my wife to do a. Trip, like you're describing really, is so much. Less than zero there. A. No way she's doing that, I I know some people That wouldn't even think of doing that. Either you know, well it will be I'm sure it'll be a great trip down memory lane Joe your. Wife is so amazing in travel she is is not looking for any creature comforts or anything like that but would she do what Ron and his wife, are gonna do I can't. See that she packs light and we're cool with lower level accommodations but I'm not sure if she'd. Be a willing to go quite to that extent that Ron and his wife are Ceron I'm impressed hope it's a great great experience you're listening..

How eager Kakharov convicted death eater again, ran the place and how its most famous pupil was none other than Gillard for the greater good griswald. We tried to conquer continental Europe guys sounds merited sorry to say this, but if you're convicted death eater, you shouldn't be able to get a job teaching children that they know. I guess like if you're gonna hold, grin, devolved against germ, shrank you gotta hold mole, the more against hearts. It's a fair point. I listen. Hockey hockey Hogwarts can we get Tom riddle's black prefect by guys still down there for all to see number four besides words, we know the most but Ilva morning because of Rowling's extensive writing about it. Quick rundown over mornings located in mount lock in modern day, Massachusetts. It accepts students from all over America Hogwarts. It's sort students into four houses, horned serpent, compass Thunderbird, and put quasi. It was founded in sixteen twenty seven more than six centuries after Hogwarts and initially existed as a shack containing two teachers and two students before eventually building to a giant castle with a large student population. Wonderful new detail about ilr Amorn is sorting ceremony rather than be selected by hat. Houston's faced large wooden statues, the mascots of the four houses which will react if they want that student in their house. One statue glows. When Roy's when Pete swings in one raises an arrow after this process, the students proceed to a second ceremony where their chosen once more. This. Time by Wanda the Japanese school of Koro starts education at the age of seven, instead of a Levin those students younger than eleven go there during the day, and it's still has the smallest population of any of the great wizard in schools.

It stands at the top most point of all kinik island of Minami Iwojima and both stormy seas and the need to watch out for planes from a nearby muggle airbase help refine the flyers, take the. Man a bit of magic chance students robes. They grow in size along with the students and change color is the suits, learn beginning a faint pink. And if the students achieve top grades eventually turning gold, if the student has experimented with dark magic or broken the code of secrecy, though the robes turn white to signify the malfeasance. I think we need this everywhere. Not into this. I go the other way really combination of like a karate belt system and like the scarlet letter number six while they do..
