Why Isn't My Morning Glory Blooming?
"We also had an email this week, too. Fred Plan Talk Radio Dot com from Christine, and she says last year I had beautiful morning glories all over my fence, the seeds dropped and this spring, and then I also did some seating as well so far I have hardly any morning. Glories coming up in the ones I do see. The leaves have holes in them. Can you tell me what's eating my morning? Glory will do you think they'll come up later or something killing them off? Okay, I'm not sure I have been asked this question before previous years and I. Don't I don't have a good answer. Every once in a while, people have asked ahead of fantastic ear with an last year. Nothing much of this year. ETC, I, don't know why that happens. I don't know whether it's because some of the little bitty seedlings coming up at the time of this last frost. Maybe we shall we say frozen off the ground that's one of the possibilities I think morning glory seeds could still indeed germinate and come up the flowering of belated, but it'll happen In Youth. My grandmother had a morning. Glory shinnied screen on the side of her porch I can remember that the two days one she was setting cutting corn and orb us in the shade of morning glories. I was out on the alleyway. My little tricycle, looking up at these glorious. Blues, lower, voice centers and I remember only that there was a kind of a heavy blooming season for year, and then not so much. The the vines grew, but the flowers were skimpy so where I can't give specific answers I don't think it's too late. For the new newly sowed seed to germinate, the first crop could have been frozen to the ground and or I don't know what I'm talking about. Okay! I don't know if they answer that would What eats the morning glory? Well mark any of a number of things every plant well. Almost every plant has its enemies, the disease or insect The odds are whatever is causing the hole. Is eight I'm GONNA call it. A beetle type creature that flies in as mature youngster, more mature youngster, and each the leaf. They other is frequently. There are so many little tiny insects in the ground that they send up Mama to sting's beef. To lay an egg, and it causes a little teeny tiny hold one. The leave matures then and grows.

No justice, no peace.

Kids Know How To Occupy Themselves. We Need To Let Them Do It
"One of our own NPR colleagues Mike Lean decline. was actually feeling this stress big time she's been working quarantined with her husband and her daughter Rosie. WHO has four? She is like a firecracker, right? She is strong willed. Through life with this intensity, which is fantastic, she learns really fast, and she's fearless, but you know it's like when she wants something. There is like no giving in, and it was these constant demand demands to draw neurology. Video, Mama, make a Sandwich Mama set up. My Zoom Circle Time Mama you know all those little interruptions that completely obliterate your concentration I would lock the door. I slid down the back of it and I just cried I. was like what am I going to do like I have this book deadline in July and it was just really like this is. This is not going to be good for any of us. Like things are going to deteriorate really quickly in this House Mike Lee and actually wrote about this moment in a new. York Times. OP, ed recently, and it's related to the. The book that she's working on, so it's called. Hunt gathered parent, and it's coming out in March twenty twenty one, and it's all about what American parents can learn from other cultures including traditional cultures, because the pressure to keep kids constantly entertained well. Mike, Ian says that's really specific to American parents and culture. There is huge amount of pressure like I have been fighting it and I still feel it. You know I still wake up in the morning I'm like. What are we GONNA do today. What are we going to do this morning, right? You're like per child entertainer part event planner. I mean it is like we're planners. If you think about it, right, it is late. They are little tech CEO's that have like a day planned for them, and we are there to usher them in, and not only just usher them, but make sure they enjoy it or something out of it or like. There's feedback afterwards, right? There's a cruise director like there's hustler service aspect to it. It's having a good time. Did you find your except my kids are those trolls on Yelp that always give the two stars, the One star now, not good enough, not good enough. Maybe they're trying to tell you something so in this episode of Life Kit. It's all about turning kids from customers. You have to please into good coworkers Mike. Leeann is gonNA share what she's learned from her reporting on other cultures to help our kids learn to entertain themselves. Michelina Club says that she got this idea from her reporting that she could sort of retrain her daughter. Yes, she was thinking about a scene. She had read about in an anthropology book by Jean Briggs who studied the inuit in the Arctic in the sixties, the anyway still lived in pneumatic lifestyle, and in the winter they build Igloos to stay warm, and the mother had two young children I think that the time they were about three and six. Six, so this is a part of the world. That's one of the coldest parts of the world in so there were many days where like the little girls couldn't go outside there. They had nothing to do right. There were no videos legos, no children's books and there's these scenes in the book where the children literally spend like an hour or two in the morning under a blanket playing without bothering anyone yet. That sounds like a real dream culture. I cannot wait to get to that point and so looking at these cultures to do this. You see striking similarity, and that is that they do not feel the need to constantly entertain, educate or stimulate. However, you want to think about it children. It's a very different approach to the way they treat a child's time. And I. Think because they don't demand the child's attention. You do this now now. You're doing this now. You're doing this I. Think in return. The child stops demanding the parents attention, and so that's what I really wanted to test out to walk us through. What did you do? I stopped trying to demand Rosie's attention. Right I stopped trying to say now. It's nine o'clock. You're going to watch this video or we're gonNA. Read a book right? I stopped being the event manager for her. And I started doing the things. I needed to do and expect her to come along with me. And welcomed her right so another thing that like these other cultures do that? We tend not to do is welcomed the children into our worlds right? There's a very separate world child world. And I think in order for this to work. You have to welcome them into your world, so hey, we're cooking now. Come over here and you know probably stir these eggs or now we're cleaning. Help back you. It's not forced. It's not like you have to do it, but I'm not gonNA. Draw you a Narwhal right now. I'm cleaning and they do this with all of their work. It's not just cleaning and domestic chores, but also you know their businesses. The children are there. The children are welcome into the world of and so so I started doing that, too. I said well. You know what I need to write. I need to write like four hours a day. And Yeah me. Sitting on a computer writing is not very interesting, but neither is like sewing and an Igloo and so I said okay. I'm going to write I. Need Quiet. And you are welcome to sit here with me the first time we did it, I started small like thirty minutes, and if she really was upset at the beginning, I would stop I'm not trying to like force anything and make a lot of chaos in their house. It's really the opposite like if she was really like in the beginning, if she was really escalating with you and getting really upset, you would would give her some time. Yeah like I. I would really try to ignore her. Because I was really teaching her like this is quiet time and it's not time for me to give you attention. But? But if it got really bad and then I'd be like okay. Let's go outside. Let's take a break you know. But you guys the first time I did it. She was kind of stunned. She actually said to me. I can do anything I want as like. Yeah, you can do anything you want as long as you don't damage the house. Like you know she just couldn't believe it, so started sma- and after about a week we had worked up to lake. Hour hour and a half chunks in by like two weeks. She wants to do it even she'll be like. Are you going to write a? Show. Ask Me and so you built up to it and her main thing that she does. Being is what she will sit here in color with me for an hour or so, and then she kind of runs around the house in desert. Thing she can go outside she cooks quote unquote, which means like mixing different things in the kitchen and she makes them S. There's no doubt there's a message. To be honest, she latched onto it quicker and better than I thought it was going to be I mean. It is one child in one house, but it's backed up by all these other families right that I that we've seen in these cultures

You know and also not only just my likeness, but where everything didn't feel like it was death, doom and destruction for me. You know whether it was the statistics of me. You know because my parents got a divorce. I probably wouldn't make it with my Arner or simple things like dot deaths within childbirth, real situation and I, just like I've seen so much negative around black and Brown Mama's women of color. That I wanted to shine light on the things that were glorious about motherhood for us. I didn't want us to just be a community or feel like what was out.

"One of the lauwers photography at least for me is the doors can open. Being photographer has provided me access to people and communities that I might never have considered otherwise the combination of a camera and my curiosity has gifted me with meeting fascinating people and entering their world and many times. Those encounters have been especial- to me as the photographs at created. Chris suspects photography is all about that. His explorations of subcultures in the areas of music and sexuality have resulted in images. That are raw an intimate. His latest book leather boys gathers images of a segment of the gay community in and around the DC area. The story of how he gained access and his process over the years provide some valuable information for anyone taking on a long-term personal project regardless of the World. They are hoping to explore this. Is your body an ex and welcome back to the candidate frame and it was good to see. It's been a long time yet. Has I'm trying to think I guess the last time I saw you This past summer at focus on the story Ryan. I'm looking forward to talking to you. We met a couple of years back. And you're always been on my radar but it's just like as with as with so many people who I put down on my list sometimes years before I finally get them on the show but I'm glad we're funding hearing chance to sit down and chat. I do want to remind you ever. I've been on candid frame before. Are you on the panel? Yeah Yeah at Miami Straight Photography Festival but I think about it in terms of one to one conversations. Sure Yeah I had just a taste now. I get the full meal I guess. Okay okay scared me for a bit getting ready but no comment background. I found out that he come from a family. Did A lot of traveling. Your Dad was a diplomat. You were born in the Philippines. That is that is correct. I was actually adopted in the Philippines. Which is interesting and I'm definitely not Filipino. So yeah was adopted there. My family was with the State Department and my dad travel to various countries around the world. All the way up through the end of my college experience. So I've lived in Thailand Denmark Moscow London and then visited various countries for like a month or a week or whatever the entire time. Did you have any any idea in terms of your birth be? We have information get to you so I actually. When my dad passed away a couple years ago she left that to me. But I still haven't looked at it weren't well I you know. Part of it is is. My parents were my parents. I've felt adopted or not. You know it was just something. I don't know man should ask my my therapist about that but I just haven't I haven't really like I feel like I don't want to give up on. The idea of my parents are my real parents because they adopted me. And that's who cared for me you know. I'm a little scared to find out who my real parents are. What if there is life changing information there? You know who knows yeah? That's fascinating especially the fact that it's just sitting in a letter somewhere. That's well it's not. It's not just a letter. It's a whole packet with a bunch of official documents and stuff so so doing all this traveling. How did he sort of color? Your perspective in terms of when you finally came in critter life yourself here in the in the states. Well I have to say that little funny story about my first time that I remember in the United States was coming back for first grade and I could speak Danish better than it could speak English and I was held back a grade because my English language skills were not that good and then from there. I went to Thailand. I believe you know from there. I went to Moscow. Actually so I have I think a more of a kind of a like a world view of and I was friends a people of all different kinds of cultures classes races. What have you I would say was a very wholesome upbringing in terms of Having kind of a global perspective and in your early twenties you're part of a of a of a punk band music start becoming occurred of your early life so that's another a funny story I remember being in Moscow and I guess the sex pistols had come out. And this is I. Think nineteen seventy six and I guess there was a article in the New York Times or The Washington Post because we used to get that at the embassy in Moscow Mama's reading about it and she's like Chris. You wouldn't listen to that stuff would you and then and then on our First trip our trip to Helsinki Finland. We got to go to a record store in the first album. Picked up was was a clash album. Actually I didn't WanNA bring home a sex pistols but I'd done a little bit of kind of asking around the embassy like what did some of the other punk bands picked up a clash in devo album and ever since then I was kinda hooked but because I was traveling and nobody I knew played an instrument. I didn't even play an instrument and it wasn't until I got to college that I met up with some people that played instruments like one of my roommates play guitar. Who's really good? He's still actually playing today on the Jam Band Circuit and anyway so one night. We're hanging out late. It leaves the house and they're like hey play the space and I'm like I don't even know what to do. There's like follow the dots man and so I just followed what they were doing with their hands. And then I was like you. Know the hippy. Music is okay. But I'm really into punk rock. And then when I've moved back to DC after college I met up with some of the former members of the band scream. I don't scream was a big discord banned. They were banned. I really enjoyed in high school early college. And that's the band where David Grohl came from and so this is some of the other members one of the other members from scream their original drummer before girl was in the span. It was like man. This guy's awesome. I get to play with him. And that's basically how I jumped into that in. How long were you into? I played in punk bands from ninety three to two thousand and on. I'm still playing in my neighborhood so I've just been continuing that I still I still. I still play a little bit in a Plano. Reggae DUB reggae band in my in my neighborhood but I was playing. I started my own record label. I put out like twenty plus CDs with international distribution all around the world toward all over the the. Us many times so yeah. I like to travel see new places. Meeting people were using a camera. Did you document those times? Not at all? It wasn't until the birth of my son that I got a camera and that was because of my wife she was like we need to get a camera and at that time it was like I don't know if we can afford it and whatever so I got a cannon power shot and this this had been like two thousand six or so. My son was born in two thousand and five so it was a little bit after that. We we still. I think the I felt. We had the IPHONE camera which is like we need a better camera so and then are basically read the manual and then I went out just shooting around my neighborhood or wherever. Just kinda figure out figuring out all the settings and that's where I figured out like what motion blur could do and stuff like that shutter drag and that was really cool and the entire throughout my entire punk rock career. I was always going into the library or on the Internet. You later in the late nineties to find just kind of like raw images to use for flyers and that's how I kind of discovered who who we g was and Dion rbis and stuff. I didn't really look at them through photographers. I was looking more through a punk rockers. I like going. You know what? What are the photos that kind of excite me or that are weird a different? That will look really good on a flyer in peak people's interest and so I spent a lot of time in the Arlington County Public Library in their photo book section. Just kinda going through trying to find stuff and yeah and so. That's kind of so I had my and I even bought like some photo books to just to use for flyers so wasn't until I actually started work in a cameras. Like hey man I could probably make photos like those guys did in those books.

Operating in the Time of Coronavirus
"Dock style reps podcasts. We're here today with Dr Ken Hood a fantastic and reputable spine surgeon from Phoenix Arizona. Dr Hood it's great to have you on the show now. The novel Coronavirus Cova Nineteen has caused a sharp decline in elective spine surgeries as an esteem. Spine Surgeon Operating Multiple Times. A week during the middle of this global pandemic. We thought you would be uniquely qualified to talk about how the novel coronavirus has impacted your practice. But before we get started we'd like to learn a little bit more about your professional background. Hey thank you so much for having me on the PODCAST The first time that I'm doing this and I think what's exciting venue Be More than happy to answer some questions today. in regards to my background. I'm Orthopedic Spine surgeon up in private practice now for five and a half years Prior to becoming a spine surgeon night training in Orthopedic Surgery Residents in Riverside California there was during my residency program that I became interested in spine surgery itself as a sub specialty so after orthopedic residency which is five years then went on to do a complex in minimally invasive spine surgery fellowship at the University of California San Diego and that was a urine length and then thereafter A signed for my first job at the University of Arizona in Tucson. I was there for several years and then subsequently have moved to Phoenix Arizona where continued to practice today fantastic. Let's go back a little bit further though. When did you decide? That medicine was the career for you. What was what was the motivation for that. So my my interest in medicine actually dates back to well before attending medical school It was during my undergraduate years The University of Rochester where I was actually an economics major and during one summer break I had the opportunity to shadow a orthopedic surgeon I wasn't specifically interested in orthopedics at that time that I just on the back of my mind. Medicine was a potential possibility so It was able to shadow orthopedic surgeon during the summer months and see his day today and and see the the types of things that he was able to do in that really sparked my interest. My Mama's retired nurse. And so you know the medical field is always been a part of my life to in in that regard but UH specifically That that that summertime shadowing of the orthopedic surgeon so it really sparked my interest interesting that that's a that's a different sort of spark that I've heard from from other medical professionals. Now I understand that you're second child. The daughter was just boring. Congratulations thank you. Yes yes Just two weeks ago. Healthy baby girl so Everybody's doing well how. How was that process a during the pandemic how how is the whole process of having a birth and going to the hospital for for that specifically or did you yes? says the very interesting obviously with covid nineteen and restrictions in place. Most hospitals The process at least from my standpoint was much different. We have another daughter is one and a half years old and comparing the two experiences was Pretty interesting so With our newborn I wasn't presents at any of the the the the prenatal visits So just here for my wife thinks going because they wanted to minimize People in and out of the allocation offices When the pandemic broke out Luckily by the time that she was ready to deliver they did allow one visitor after the birth so I was actually not physically present during the birth itself but afterwards was able to visit which was great but definitely a different experience than with our previous child. Were able to be present for the entire process. Now how is it balancing your personal life and operating at a trauma one centers? Is it difficult or have you found your way into it? Pretty easily It definitely has its challenges. I would say that over time. I've been able to develop a routine and schedule. That helps me navigate the day today even with that though taking level one spine trauma call does throw curveballs into your into your plan. Schedule on a daily basis The the balance is key Between personal and Work Life. If you focus solely on either components the other will suffer significantly And it's tough because sacrificing time with your family friends it's hard And at the same time you know if you ignore your practice or your patients Bad things happen as well So what I tend to do is try to stick to it daily routine Monday through Friday. I usually get up between four thirty to five o'clock in the morning trying to get some exercise in before heading into work the day to day various between clinic and operating room as well as call stuff but most days. I'm done by somewhere between five and six. Pm and then once I get home. It's one hundred percents Family time occasionally. I'll get called in the middle of the night and have to go into operation. Fortunately most things can till the following warning but it is a challenge And I feel like There's no perfect answer. Perfect scenario you just have to try to find as much balancing your life account
But Why Live: Poetry
"Oscar is ten and lives in Bethlehem Pennsylvania and he told us he wrote this poem for Mother's Day bike rides with Mama another scrape. My knees keep donating bloody skin to the sidewalk. Here comes Mama keeping a straight face even though I know she must be laughing inside because it's not the first time I ride my bike into a fire hydrant since we took off the training wheels. I've been living on the edge the edge of sidewalk the edge of Aggressee Hill. The Japan nerves no longer our arms on my shoulder while I ride but she is always there. I remember clapping when I wrote up to the mailbox. You're doing it. She cheered. That was three years ago now. Whenever WE GONE by Christ's we travel miles. It's our thing on narrow streets. She leads the way otherwise. We're side by side even uphill in those. She's not holding my shoulders like she did when I was seven. I know I will always have balanced because of her. That's what a mother does to ride my bike with Mama to tell her without words that I love her Oscar. I love that poem. I Bet your mother was so so happy to get it. Here's a poem from Cassia. Who's seven and lives in Chatham on Tour Ontario? Her poem is called name is waterfall. I walk slowly down the rocks. My eyes are big whitish blue. I carry a bubble of water by breath salty. My touches software misty. I moved fast and sneaky voices. Smooth soft common scratchy. Right name is my name is waterfall casio. That is so beautiful all right. Let's get into more poems. We have more of you who are calling in to read some poems on air and some of you may have questions about poems and poetry that you'd like to share with us as well and I want to bring in our guide for the our Ted. Shy Ted is known as the poetry guy around here in Vermont and beyond. He's been teaching poetry. Two Kids for more than twenty years and some of you listening might have been about to have a school event with Ted shy before your classes got canceled so lucky us. He's with us today. Ted I Jane. I'm so excited to talk poetry with you. Even more thrilled than you. This is such a cool honor to be on your awesome show. Oh thank you thank you but I'm going to start with a really tough question for you. Although I think it's one you've probably answered many many times. So Ted when we think about poems some poems rhyme some poems. Don't some have a few words and then skip to the next line. Some have lines that run together. Some poems are designed to be read on the page others are designed to be spoken and heard a loud some poems follow rules about form and structure. Once you know the rules. Some poems still break them. Some poems are very very short but some like the epic poetry of homer are as long as a chapter book and have characters and plot like a novel would so ted. What is poetry? That's a hard question and you listed so many different ways because that's what homes are. There are lots of different things to me. A poem is a small mostly small. It's focused it's laser focused on one important thing in your life. Something you feel really strongly about and it's sort of like if if kids live in the northeast and especially in Vermont. They know that Maple Syrup for example is something we do here. We make here. And when you make Maple Syrup you take lots and lots of Sap from the maple tree and you have to boil it down and it takes forty drops of maple sap to make one delicious drop of Maple Syrup that dances on your tongue. And it's kind of a process that everybody has to take this long mostly long process of sort of distilling boiling down your thoughts until it becomes a really important night and idea and it doesn't have to take any particular shape. That's the cool thing about poems. A rules are super flexible. So but so if a poem can be anything if you're writing one. Oh that's a good question. Well it's sort of an open thing you. There's so many different shapes and sizes of poems but it is something that you know in your heart. You've written something. Like Oscar was writing about such detail and living I love the way he described living on the edge and Cossio filled with details about her voice and their breath is and it's looking at things really really carefully and so did I answer your question. Not really because there isn't there isn't really an answer. Poems take so many different forms but they're not stories there even though Oscar kind of told story. It's it's really just a focus little expression of something super important so those epic poems and epic poets like homer and you know the the Odyssey and the Iliad are those really kind of different than what we consider modern poems. I think so. I have a hard time There aren't too many poets that long stuff these days and back when they wrote those they didn't even write them down. Had people who memorize like and they would share it for many many days. Twenty four seven without stopping so that was kind of an unusual story type of poem and epic Narrative Poem. And fortunately there aren't. Most people writes shorter stuff and I certainly do myself. I'm kids. Maybe that's a good assignment for you. See if you can just recite a poem. Twenty four seven. See what you think about that. Maybe maybe you can tell them that. Ted Shy told you you should do it. Let's get to some poems. That kids are sending us and we have lots of kids calling in Ted who WanNa read their poems allowed and this is so exciting because I love it when are able to read their own poems but we got a found poem that was sent to us by the common dish town elementary sixth grade class they actually wrote this palm on zoom. They're having video conference meetings and they focused on things to do outside so each student put a line in the chat box in their video conference and hit send at the very same time and this is the poem that resulted watching the birds. That land on my feet feeder going hiking riding my bike bright orange caterpillar under the leaves. I breathe in air running down the sidewalk as fast as I can smelling the bright tulips growing. Love it outside. That's pretty good for palm that everybody hit send on at the same time. Don't you all say the ending? The last line is the perfect line for that yeah. Nothing's no kidding. Thank you for that. Kevin dish sixth-graders.

Patrick's Coming Out Story
"Come out to hear from Patrick who's now a successful Mike artist but he got relentlessly bullied for being gay or growing up in Northern Ireland. I identify as male And I I have an interesting journey with my gender I think because I started doing drag or Soy's drag when I was about fifteen stain kind of progressed. I moved to Manchester when I was eighteen on. I pretty much was wearing full. Face to makeup wakes clothes everything every single day. I think I am used to chester. Oh God I can do this. I'm free to to wear as much as I want. And where did you come from that? You can wear what you want. I grew up in Northern Ireland so I could and I did wanted by think I was always trying to be little bit. Respectful of my parents particularly my mom because she was a little bit uncomfortable at the time about me wearing makeup and bought me wearing weeks and and looking of the Yes. I moved to Manchester and it all sort of exploded e kind of all sort of mixed together. It wasn't really drag. I've never really done to the performances. I tried failed dressing. Dressing up was dressing up and still is for me now and I kind of stopped doing it for a very long time as my career is make posits kicked off. I didn't really have any time. I think there's a good three or four years where I didn't put any makeup on at all but now I'm at a point where I wouldn't even know what it's called I. I'm a man who is gay who likes to wear addresses woman. Sometimes but I don't see myself as a drag queen but juicy self is somewhere on the sort of gender fluid spectrum may be I guess so by just don't feel like home fits with me if you turn because everyone likes putting terms things. These days I would say gender fluid would be appropriate up you would prefer gender. Fluid suspended male. I don't really care. That's the thing that when people these conversations like I think about a lot but I don't ever think about all. This is the term that identify with the most. I'm just I'm just. I'm Patrick and some does I like to lady some days. I looked like a man. Will you go out shopping or go out and make you might just as woman? No I'm on? I think that's probably why the the line is in a sense. I'm why wouldn't see myself as being gender fluid for me? Gender fluidity is someone who I probably would have been more like eight nine years ago when I would go out house with makeup on and with silly outfits on in fact my what am I. University lecturer actually brought me into her office. University and asked me should be cool. You anything different remain is that do we give you a different name? Which would like different pronoun or anything? I thought no and I thought what she questions to ask my. I'm just wearing these clothes. I didn't understand why. Why did he was different? But looking back then I was definitely much more gender fluid whereas these days it's more just address up that's quite progressive really to serve. She was a lovely woman. What's your pronouns? So it's the right way about. Isn't it to actually ask the pers- yeah definitely definitely? I really appreciate. That looking back was a lovely thing of Helen. Do well done Helen so looking back. Can you remember the first time that you may be questioned your sexuality then to know why I think I always questioned bisexuality? Once I knew what sexuality was I knew I didn't fit into the normal. I remember having imaginary friends as really young boy and I always wanted them to be boys. I always wanted to be called Tom. Which is really weird because if my flatmate listen to this my flatmates called so I don't want him to think I have a thing for the boy called Tom. I always want to hug them. I always wanted them to be close. I remember it being because they were boys. We have family video of me when I was a kid. Really really young and our next door neighbor. Child I'm running around child's Charles like calling out for him because I was probably obsessed with and then I think I grew up and I realized what sexuality was. It was like. This is always something that I've thought I've always been attracted to boys and also the messages we getting about people that were male light boys of your school in. Belfast was yes I went to school. It's an all boys grammar. School in Belfast. Very up at south one of these kind of really wheaties for school. Everything around may was telling me that everything that I was into everything I was interested was wrong messages. Where you're hearing. I think proved very young age. I was always some other was like the victim of bullying in a sense. A growing up in Northern Ireland with a British accent With Army family and Camp. So you you were bullied for being English Bison Primary School it was always English and getting a degree because of my accents and then when I went to secondary school turned into A. You're you're gay. Boy Gameboy busted. Dumbo buster bums. The walls was always a catchphrase. That was said when people woods when I would walk down there the corridor. And how old were you I mean throughout secondary school. So from twelve onwards funny because I came out and primary school do yes. It is well. This is an early one. I asked boy to be my boyfriend in Palm. He's GonNa last year of Primary School. I come into how all that would have. Been eleven eleven. The education system is a little bit different Nolan. I think he leave a year or something later. I can't really remember that I recalled. I was very good friends with him and I found him. I won't spend my boyfriend so I asked him. I remember what he said. I gotcha I gave them a note. I remember I remember sort of slipping him tonight. What he boyfriend but I recall what happened after that however I do recall giving him a phone call after school to talk to him because we would every night and his mom picks up the phone and I said speech Cowan please. Is this Patrick. So yes said well. I've heard about this. Fancying thing the what Jamaican and she said. I need to stop disgusting for how this is coming from light. This boy's mum and this is probably one of the youngest coming has gazed. I've heard you were ten or eleven. You try to get a boyfriend boyfriend then. The mother intervene jess and that was kind of that was that because I I remember being on the phone. Remember sitting on my mom's bad being on the phone shutting down the phone. That may be thinking. Oh this is wrong because I didn't really think anything wrong. I guess at the time apartments quite just wants to boyfriend but he obviously thought something wrong with it because he went straight out his mother. I so God what happened with the friendship. I mean that was the end of primary school more or less. Oh I can't quite recall whether or not we stayed friends. We probably did stay friends but when I went to different school you know secondary school so I didn't speak to him again and then there was one boy from my primary school went to grammar school with mate and I remember saying. Don't tell anyone like about the stuff that was kind of kept hush hush and then he's not telling people but don't but not until like our second year of secondary school and then everything's coming out and then I saw his playing to little bit. Once I came to terms with my sexuality and I was afraid of. I think I've sort of jumped straight into it in the sense that I had a boyfriend. I think had my first boyfriend when I was fourteen. Thirteen fourteen and he lived around the corner from my house. So we get the school bus with each other so you did you ever have any girlfriends it right into the boys in primary school. I have so many girlfriends yoga. Yeah in fact. I really love laser device. Full circle moment recently. That my my my main girlfriend primary school I have makeup for recently mostly. Nice but they would just like playing Casey chases and primary school and yeah. It's a secondary school and I had my first boyfriend when I was about fourteen and the dramas about cost because I actually joined the cadet force and my my secondary school And he was one of the one of the sergeants and he was older he must have been bus eighteen when I was about fourteen to. Everybody obviously found out about what was that reaction. Then if they like previously recalling Ubembe boy and abusing you because you are and then they found that you actually had a boyfriend in school and the school in the catas- when I think about those that are times I think buckle news stories. You know. It wasn't all that bad. I got grief everybody. Everybody has something to say. I was ostracized from everybody apart from my very very close knit friends. But I didn't ever quite lucky in a sense I never have enough. I didn't get that much abuse a on me although to be ostracized by the majority of your school colleagues. It's got to be very alienating. Very lonely place to be as well. I think actually is probably the most difficult people some of the teachers to accept or not so. I remember one of my house shooter. Whoever he was obviously being be is to shave my eyebrows off and draw them on again. Of course course I getting a lot of people about and he looks at you. You're not really helping yourself are you. And that was his way of dealing with them. Just GonNa Suck my teeth now just very much that I think about. There's so many stories from my school The head of pastoral care at my school he told my best friend. My best friend was crazy like a piece of artwork and included a picture of the two of us in makeup and to be pulled birth bus into into the school officer. Talk about the fact that we harangue makeup in this picture and he's holding my friend Anton. The Envy's children turned out to be. He gave that he would assign them not the head of Pastoral Care School. Well he's in the wrong job. I know awful. Man Said no support tool then from anyone in terms of authority figures. Yeah but I think very much. My my school wasn't a great place to be gay and with what was this. The nineties noughties The northeast expansively. Brezler not a Northern Ireland so back in in the way I mean. They've only just got marriage. Equality abortion right. Yeah exactly Hallelujah. Thank God but they're so backward. I think of my Johnny was coming out with a little bit easier than of my friends because my family are English. Not to say the Ron. Lots of very supportive very open Irish people because of course there are but I guess my family went as religious especially my dad and I didn't really have thought that traumatic past of of living in Northern Ireland. So what stage did you come out to your parents. Bearing in mind the trying to get boyfriend at the age of ten in progress and then got one by fourteen. I'm guessing he came out quite early to them you well. I came out to my Mama earlier. My Dad moved away to Luxembourg when I was about twelve. I think he moved off work. So this basically he. He wasn't really on the on the scene so I think I was about sixteen came onto him by counts. My Mum probably about twelve thirteen and it was a conversation again. Sat on the same bad. I phoned Calgary from. I couldn't say the words I remember trying to say. I think I'm gay and not being able to say gay and saying I I tell you but I caught sight yet and Saying oh I don't know and then going through listen different questions than eventually. We got to that. She's like Oh you gay. Yes yes let's sets and okay right. I think you're a bit young. So maybe we'll have this conversation when you're older okay. So then every now and then it was a diesel thinking guy and that was. That was pretty much for my mom. I mean my mom was always quite supportive. It's my my older sister is guy I was. My sister had the real hard time coming out so I could. So she came out. I know she came out later. I came up so see is five years older than me. Okay I think she was about nineteen twenty when she came out and it was traumatic. My mom would always say my gay people. I might like gay man. I just can't stand spins. And that was her catchphrase and she's very very much the complete opposite of that now. My sister's marriage has a little boy. My mom loves my sister. I think that's just Hearn prejudice her and

I told you listen to a little bit of the Kunar report to you. Did it change your mind? I also think hindsight's twenty twenty.

I'm talking to that guy today. It's not true now. Tro Talk Left. Well friends the Boston. Globe released town by town data on crow virus cases. Yeah Lexington has under two hundred fifty. I'm surprised so surprised. It's only that yeah when you when you look at the graph you really see. Chelsea is the the epicenter of Chelsea is huge. I don't know the exact numbers but it's color coded like the darkest spot on the map. Because I know some people who lived in who live in Lexington worked what were you. Were which McCall the conference of fucking kicked off the whole thing in Massachusetts Jan viol- yeah so So Chelsea has One thousand nine hundred and sixty five cases. He's Christ yeah but then there are other towns out in Massachusetts. Okay Gimme This really test my ability to find a town in mass orange fuck. That's about as far as you know what? What is it shaped like? They don't identify the towns until you hover over. I'm so I'm having shaped like an Orange Orange Orange spray tanning shape light. How the map like a fucking hover over the what is going to boot? It's like fucking Italy shaped like a germ. She you have to hover zone as West as you. Can that find the town there? So handcock has less than five case. Piddly ten. I would say it's like a lower case L. Okay there you go. It's live case long and thin. Yeah so Hancock Massachusetts which I which. I am embarrassed semi familiar with Hancock Massachusetts. No neither AM I. So how about East? Long Meadow one hundred and seventy eight cases. No small number well. Fleet has less than five keeping my niece long again. We're talking about poverty. We're talking about this. Just the scum Western mass company Earth. So that's now I can afford a house in east. I know very well very nice town so long meadow but Brockton Brockton has a huge population to two thousand seven hundred thirty five surprise here that that's just keep keep going round shape it around win. Two Thousand Fifty six inland city sin as they say About never come out the way you went in how about gratin trauma Peter Gammons again. I don't know if I'm a middle finger on Shaughnessy indebtness let's see Oh gratin. Twenty two cases. Oh wow that's all the restaurants not that far away Roy allston less than five to the perfect example. So grinds one of these towns that I think recently they it's offering four. They put this huge like outdoor mall with a big movie theater. They're really nice movie theater. I've seen some movies. They're fucking completely closed now in the the the one the great drivers of all time. Johnson's drive and we get hamburger. I shake Johnson's been there. But Adam hand several times Ryan Peterman loved that fucking not open right now. Unbelievable like the dog in the fucking shake. That really doesn't make any sense. Makes what would be their argument is that you have people from coming from other places to go and the numbers would go. Yeah but I mean I got it. We got it no it by the way. No one's doing that no going anywhere. They've been pretty large again. You've always got shitheads. Yeah by large. I'M GONNA give America America in a-minus awesome minus the job so far but then I see something like I was joking at the start but we are fucking starting to turn. Where like in Ohio? Now they've got a system to wrap people out if they've been collecting unemployment directs. Like we're falling apart. We're starting to break now instead of instead. Of just changing the law itself we were turning ourselves into a SNITCH STATE. Fucking bizarre and again. They're going to people today. Who get tickets and a lot. I think you're right. But there are people who are GonNa get tickets for taking their fucking dog walking now forgiving their mascot wearing it. When they won't be near I went for a run today. I was not within five hundred feet of a person. If the way they see you and your they they we cross the other side we go away we we go at opposite way. We take a different street. And what point do you WanNa Fuck? Do we stop doing this. And what have you haven't been able to get a mask then. Haven't hugged either one of you guys months. It's been too long. Those famous hugs after the show. The good job hugs and tugs are gone now. I know I'm Anthony Hugging people. I love shake people's hands. It's gone well sometimes right. Now the will the Wilbur show everyone's VIP. I'm hugging everyone that night. All right. That's right kisses.

That's offered tonight if he wants the likes to lurk in the shadows. I guess I suppose with my med jacket. So Maine has To twelve hundred confirmed cases. Total total Jesus so Chosun One hundred day in Chelsea yes shit. Seven hundred and twenty ever covered fifty seven deaths fifty seven deaths. And they're under more stringent. Lauria says Gers than we are. So if the state of Maine had never corliss had never existed just hasn't been known that existed but was never identified mainland. Be Effect Nothing. They'll even really know now. I must again. I'm not I'm not flew. Flew guys is very serious but if they're not going to say sit in your house until we find the vaccine then what point at which point I would say that's a legitimate argument to make. I wouldn't agree with it but I understand that you know what I mean. That's an argument to make he. Can't you know you can't let the the flu? Ruin your life right but but short of that. Let's go let's go. You'll see what the food court today. Tomorrow Free Samples for me. I have been shown muck and Gullit shoved down my goal. Have all the free samples you want. Yes unfortunately I just don't see the incentives aligned for the politicians to actually end the lockdown business. A business. How I mean I. It's the no one wants to be the first person to go. And you know governor add it comes out and says he's GonNa start stuff up and then they leak audio of him. Being like yeah. Well they're probably see higher caseload and he gets killed for cases that were served surgeons. Who doesn't think that I you know Yeah you're right but I mean also the other thing is the media's major media is GonNa want this and continue to. Yeah they're gonNA fucking sensationalize that they want that second. They want that second wave coming right around election. Time can't win that battle so I don't know but I mean you know everyone's hanging in right now but the economy has you're going to be three months from now if this continues Ed state done. The bizarre thing is nothing's changed with the virus like it keeps kind. We say like Oh boo better today today. Where this slow. Then there's been like minor tape but we keep changing like today. You have to wear face masks right but tomorrow. We're going to reopen restaurant. There's no rhyme or reason to anything. Bakers been stringent. Anti is anybody. He's been the hardest the hardest from the country. I think it's. There's no way to tell. In retrospect how the I guess the plateau would look without these lockdown procedures. There just isn't it could have been just. We're just naturally running quarterly worse. I mean I think I think he's a person I mean we. We can speculate about that but I mean how much worse I guess if you keep the New York. Subway systems open this belief. Jesus arguing the other side of this. I give you credit open mind I always. I always thought it was going to be serious. I never said that He said eighty percent of the world was going to get it. Yeah yeah stand by that. Yeah I think so. We may have. Who the Hell knows love and Desi? I just died in the world from this now. I think that the the fans died. You think I wonder no but but but if you just listen you know I mean again. We far more people listen to this. And don't contribute to the media said think about world sick map is three point six million cheese that we're getting the twelve. Hey guys wear number one.

Working in Unison with Justin Ricks Pro Basketball Agent & Manager
"Of course The number one go every athlete won't make to them You know as a basketball that was in third grade. I was by far was not the best on the team. Probably wasn't the best or any team played on. You know what I mean and But I was a student. I just love being around the game. I loved managed Love getting practice is just love being around. And now when I got to high school I started to become realistic. You're not going to get a college scholarship. You know what I'm saying. Like all these coaches. They come in to see a best friends. So I'll start thinking about different ways. I could just really be steroid again. And at that point like I remember. I was getting out of practice one day and I coached crabby practice. You know just like just going through the motions in our coaches like man. I Dunno taking taking this for granted because a Lotta. This is GONNA BE. Our last ever played basketball. A lot of not getting. The kind of scholarships may not make today. Just Kinda hit me at that point. I was like man. I meeting B. as in our you know and I remember as a to everybody who will listen I will tell Mama be as our GM. And I really believe that you know what I mean and so you know what I did was I want the grammar state and Um when I was there I still try to stay around the game and I was still talking to a lot of my friends. That was playing basketball in the COLLAGEN. You know Still discount trying to study the business and it ended up animated JOB WITH THE MEMPHIS. Grizzlies and I felt like that was like probably the best thing to happen. Because the unique thing about working with the grizzlies everything was in one location unlike most NBA teams. You know the basketball operations the business operations and the practice facility was pretty much in the same building so any given time you know you can see. Lying highlands are the GM and a break role in automates alike and And in my manager at the time was over the says marketing department like every month he will have like maybe a player like Scout. Or sometimes I know how does come and speak to the market style and like I took that to my advantage. I was like all right. He came and spoke to us. I entered it was myself so so when I see him doing gang there when I see him around a bit. I'm a speech on period. Side is like Sede see certain people and I speak to him and I did ask them questions and I remember my best friend wind up becoming my first client when I became. Aj here the free agent workout with the Grizzlies. Coming up and I'm by went to GM adjutant seducing myself like what was going on Monday just agent one day a private looking like man the head of the kid talking to me but as it you know what I mean but I'm looking like man is only thirty GM's so I know you've probably talked to a lot of ages in his lines also. I'M GONNA ask questions because I realize man of you ask questions you ask the right question you'll get passes you know what I mean and So you know after I left the Grizzlies Man I at that certified in my mind. My best friend became my first client and First Year in Atman. I just learned as much as I came in our prime only to class at the time. I really wasn't trying to decide. A Lotta guys always always kinda put it in in in eternal record label. You don't want to a lot of artists and you can't have none of them released the album so what I edited backers in what I mean by that is like I would go to Portsmouth some of the Argos many places as possible late Dan. Facebook and just get connected with coaches general managers. You know what I mean so whenever I do start to sign players our have jobs to give to help them build their careers you know so no man. That's good 'cause we kind of paint a picture of like of the progression and so kind of going back to like the early years when you realize I am not going to be the guy that you know that the gift that offers may be go for you when you're trying to figure out this agent thing right you told everybody about it right like NAM and you can do it right but from an income. Make it out there right right right how. You're honestly like a because I I heard that a lot. You know what I mean like man. You know we come from we come from. It's no agents Man Like what are you talking about the first player dead from my era that made it to the NBA was promised up But before my area you know we always had basketball but no benjamin bed rustles actually from Mar Louisiana before he migrated to Oakland so we always had like athletes but on a business on business. We never had nobody. So you know you're right. When I used to tell people. I'm going to be as people really look like Trip like houses ablaze. And but I really like I could do anything. I really felt room featherweight like right now saying when they say you know you can do all things through Christ. I really believed that scripture like do whatever you know what I mean and it may be a journey. I may not get another night. But I'm always played along dame everything I do you know so I think one of the biggest things that just kept me going my confidence. You know what I'm saying like Interviews UNITES TO. Listen to interviews. Ai Is listened interviews. Kobe is listened interviews. That Wayne like three people that really influenced me. Listen to interviews masterpiece. Listen TO INTERVIEWS MALCOLM X. All five hundred people by Marlee like all. These people got one thing in common. They believe we felt. Like I was GonNa be the best in over the the way. I'm going to be the greatest rapper loud masterpiece like be the best businessman in a slight. Nobody penetrate their belief. Just take on that mentality. You know what I mean like men listens like if this what you WANNA do. You GotTa stand firm on a really gotta dedicate everything to a because if I say on the aging without putting the actions behind it denounces another personality with pipedream like I started doing was at the time I had a full time job. You know what I mean so I get off work. I used to dedicate like an hour and a half to study. Looking at contracts is all public domain. Certain things are public domain. You know what I mean this asking questions again like I say when I worked for the grizzlies you know if I bump into one of the SCOUSE. I'm asking him. How do you evaluate talent? You know what I mean. What what goes into making decision goes into roster changes like these people used to you know. I'm sorry I sucked because you know what I'm saying but they would give me a free day and But the question is short minutes obtains is having a confidence that belief in myself
Keeping in touch with family using the Facebook Portal
"What can I do for you today? Mr Jason Yes sir Story is this my nephew and his wife live in Australia. And a Are going to have their first baby in about a month here spent a month actually and they want to get my mom a facebook portal. Yes good idea. So she could see the grandchild. Yes yeah I'm not a fan of facebook lack of interest in people's privacy or personal data all that other stuff now as a side note she does they all do have access to Iowa devices and face time but they get frustrated because I guess view point of view angle. Let me let me point something out. Are they all on facebook I think so. Yeah so they're already giving Mark Zuckerberg everything he wants so having a facebook portal will make them no more of a victim. I guess you're giving mark a camera and microphone in the House but even mark Zuckerberg the founder. Facebook isn't so information greedy that he's like analyzing the picture and saying They need a new stove. We should give them some stove advertising. They're not doing so. I had a portal. I had I. Actually they're quite they're quite easy to use. There's three different models is the new model which I really like goes right on top of the TV of her grandma that might be the easiest but they wanna get so on the TV plugs into the TV. I think it's pretty simple. Set up I don't think your Mama have too much difficulty. What's cool about it is. It's super easy to make these calls. Now it's as easy as facetime because if your facebook friends which I've obviously they are you just you just say the name or you click on it and you're done and it's very fast. It does a great one thing. It does that Other devices don't including facetime is it's zooms in on the speaker and if you move around as babies are want to do it will follow Short so. I think there's a lot to be said for the portal. I think the technology's very good and just remember you're not giving them anything they don't already. That's missing the boat here. Yes seems to me like they should be doing an apple TV. And I'm thinking hey it'd be great to have a camera that could have been a lot of calls for apple disease but you know it takes these things. Don't just pop out You know you've takes years to design them. One hopes apples been working on it but You know there's been no sign no rumors. Nothing you're right. This would be a great facetime device and most of US Trust. Apple will more than we do facebook but since they're already on facebook get the portal. I think they'll eleven Leo LaPorte detect guy.

"Feel to you. I mean you're six six years old. You're in first grade you again something. Internet language for right. You recognized disdain but you you know you don't have that word. you recognize recognize it in the sales tax for your mother. You know that word but what your mother does is models for you. Oh dignity yes. That's it yeah if she had played that any other way. You know I think about about that now because it's still stuck with me. Look how it has stuck with me my whole life. I still remember as much as I tell people that story. I can recall how I felt as a six year old. It was traumatizing ended my mother. Had you know handled it any other way said we'll just ignore her or or well. You don't have to wear all your shoes school if she had done any of those things I think the shame would have come rushing down onto me all that shame that she had kept at bay you know I think it would have really been really a very different outcome. so. I'm grateful that she had the wherewithal to handle it that way because I knew right then that no one could tell me what I was entitled to. That was the thing that I quickly graphs graphs from that situation. There are stories that stay with us and stories that we need to rediscover and re understand as adults once wants our childhoods become clearer to us especially when our childhoods have involved a secret bridget is already deep into her adult life. She's in her fifties fifties a journalist a professor a wife and a mom before this secret she kept her whole life starts to sit less comfortably within her fannies gone on the risks of what she did are long past and yet still the secret remains why I was so used I do not telling it was all I ever knew. I inherited that way of life that I never struggled with the idea of wanting to tell a job. Oh oops. I'm going to share this and I shouldn't I never did it was incredible because my best friend since Fourth Grade Diane. Dan Was being interviewed by me as I was researching the book and now we're in our fifties and she thought I just want to talk about my mom and she thought well. That's a great subject because we all love your mother and we all have stories of how she helped us so yeah. I'd love to talk to her. Talk to you about her and then my final question to her was. Did you know that my mom had this whole business and she was like what are you talking about. What it's like that's when I realized wow I really did. Keep this secret pretty well and that we all did and my my mother did and you know I could see it in my friends face. She was like wait a minute. I I know your mom was running something something. I just didn't know what like I could tell she was in charge. I just didn't know what she was in charge of so it was both a revelation but not surprising that was my way of understanding for myself that yes we did keep that secret solidly kept it across many years but here's the the thing. I came to learn to just because it wasn't a dark shameful. Secret didn't mean it wasn't weighing on me. It was because a secret morse I it ultimately becomes something that attach shame to itself to itself right is like I call shame jayme a secrets country cousin because they're not far from one another inevitably and in my case. I started feeling feeling bad about not telling I started thinking. I'm acting like I'm ashamed of my mother because I'm not telling anyone and that felt awful. At what point did you start feeling that way in really became acute once. I had a child and wants my son got older and actually asked me one day when he was like ten years old was nine years ago and he very innocently looked at a photo of my mom and said what was she like. I managed to answer him. I said Oh she was amazing but in my heart I thought what have you done. You know you have really now reached gone into a territory. That's unhealthy. You kept busy reliable and you had to. Why are you still keeping the secret now your own children. Don't know who their grandmother is what she did what she accomplished then. I I bought get it together. Your mom died when you were thirty two. Yes when we're children born so my son was born seven years later okay so your mom died before you had kids right right so they never knew her. They never knew where I as an aside thought. Maybe I'll never have children I totally wait until the last possible moment because I thought you know I thought it was because I could never be the kind of mother I had and I wonder we're now was that whole business of the secret implicated in there somehow. I don't know how but maybe something about children requires his revelation and maybe I was hesitant about that too. I don't know but I I definitely felt urgency once he was asking about her. That was the trigger..

"We saw it as this communal business that was turning dollars over in the community many times right and providing all of these legitimate services through that money so it's like. I knew that it was I now know that it was happening everywhere in many communities before they moved to Detroit before before the numbers running began bridget's parents like millions of other blacks migrated north as part of the second wave of the great migration. This was the mid nineteen eighteen fifty s and at that point they had three small children when they arrived in Detroit from Nashville Bridget's father thought he'd find work in the factories which he did but it was difficult inconsistent. Eventually he became disabled and couldn't work regularly so what was funny to do. My Mom has these young children sure and she's left her home. You know all they've ever known wasn't Asheville where she her family had been for generations. My Mom's grandfather was born into slavery savory in Nashville as how far back their roots with so. She's in this new northern city tough place. The discrimination has his own flavor flavor and she's not prepared for it and she checks out the landscape in realizes that seventy five percent of Detroit's black women are either doing doing day work which means you know cleaning white women's homes or they are in really low rung jobs in these factories making less than the men or they're cleaning offices at night and as she used to say it seemed risky to her to not figure you're out something else because the idea of leaving her children at home while she took one of these jobs for very low pay and letting them raised themselves was not an option and so she started looking for something else to do and she didn't have to look that far actually because my mom was pretty observant she was a quick study and everywhere around her her neighbors were playing the numbers betting they're fifty cents there quarter dollar not a lot of money but she saw that it was a brisk business so as a child you know your mom is running numbers. Yes yes and it's not remotely hidden from you or your siblings. It's it seems like it's almost sort of command central of the home you know she's there and this is her job and she's not remotely ashamed of it. No none of you are but you also know that it must be kept a secret. Yes I've been asked. How is it that you mother never got caught and I don't have an actual answer for that? I think she was lucky but also so my mother was really cautious in really smart and I think there were a few things that she did to really mitigate the risk of exposure and one of them was my mother only had customers through word of mouth so she'd only take your business. If you came highly recommend there was that and even though we had a house Oh that felt like grand central station. A mother was actually careful about who came into the house so so there was that piece as well and also she wasn't flashy. She loved beautiful things but she was understated. I think that was really important to and and then she had to take some very practical measures. My mother had a lovely. I say it's lovely because I thought it was safe safe that. She kept in her bedroom closet. It was a metal save with the combination lock and that's where she kept the day's proceeds. That's where she kept the business. The cash ask was all in that combination lock in her bedroom closet. She also carried a pistol in her purse and there was another one that remained in the house in the linen closet underneath the eyelid trimmed tablecloths and the Lace Napkins and we we all knew it was there and we understood. We actually felt safer knowing it was there he goes. My mom was not only worried about exposure in risk that could lead to arrest. She also had to worry about being in a cash business and getting out that maybe there's a lot of cash and family's House House and so it was that precaution as well you know she was really constantly trying to safeguard against a lot of different things and we're going to take a quick break.

"I was experiencing it. I thought it was normal my childhood because there were many rituals also happened regularly. I could listen to my mother on the phone every day taking her customers beds and it was like a daytime. Lullaby I loved it didn't seem odd to me at all his recitation of numbers right by her and then every evening we were all going to wait to hear in the days winning numbers were and that's how it worked. If you were in a household where your parents in my case my mom was actually a numbers runner. It was simply simply a precursor to the lottery and it existed decades before the State got around to taking it over so that was the way that you lived in that kind of household and I thought in an odd way. The structure was comforting because I knew what to count on. Let's go all the way back literally though due to Detroit the house here we were in this home. That was a colonial for bedroom brick house. It was very traditional looking and for US extremely spacious. There were seven of us and all the sisters shared a room. My brother had his own and then my parents room so we all had our space and what I loved about it as a child is that it really did have this incredibly fascinating addict where I could go up and just play you imagine all kinds of things. I was as many writers as a child. I was very caught up in my own imagination mm-hmm I could spend hours in my own head and the ad it was a great place to do that because I can look out that window and see everything in front of me. The entire goings means on the street but the basement was the same way. It was gorgeous. Space that turns out my mother had she renovated it so it became like a lounge and it was the sixties so there was wood paneling. There was a rep around bar that was you know necessary back then and because I had all these siblings who were teenagers were what I thought was parties every night. When I look back it couldn't have been every night but in my memory it was it. Was all my siblings friends coming in the side door and running down the steps and listening to lots of Motown. You know we were in Detroit so motel was our soundtrack and those records were spinning regularly constantly and I remember laughter and people playing cards and smoke and you know this sort of sense that it was a social hub so that was happening happening and at the same time my mother was also inviting lots of people into the home because she was a magnet for people. They love being around her. She really was what we call a pillar of the community but no one used that term she was just fanning. Miss Fanny and her doors were open so people who who were really wanting to come over and have a meal knew they could do that. Advani's House if they needed advice they come to her. If you know a young woman was struggling in her marriage and things were a little crazy my mother would say why don't you stay here a few days until things cool off so there were always people in the house. My sister used to call it grand central station. The doorbell was always wringing the doors. Were swinging open. The phone was going up all the time..
