Fresh update on "melanie" discussed on Larry Elder
"Just fine. Thank you. Thanks for the vote. Well, glad to be heard. How about that? What did you think of the debate last night? And what'd you think about The comments made by Joe Biden kind of backing off his stance on fracking and about Getting rid of the oil industry today. Well as showed that he's backtracking a lot and lying a lot. And everything but one saying What they got me was When he said. That they had an all Republican House and Senate that they couldn't get nothing done. Its first two years of the administration was all Democrat. Yes, and that that moment that you were talking about when President Trump basically this is one of the things that he did very well during the debate is he asked job and why he had done something in His previous eight years is vice president. His 47 year political career sounded like this. We begin a process. We lost an election. That's why I'm running to win back that election and change his terrible policy question. Why didn't you do it in the eight years? A short time ago? Why didn't you do it? You just said I'm going to do that. I'm going to do this. You put 10 of thousands of mostly black young men in prison. Now you're saying you're going to get you're gonna undo that. Why didn't you get it in your eight years with Obama? You know my job because you're all talk and no action Vice President Biden and then we're going to move on to the next section of a Republican Congress. You gotta talk him into. It was one of the best moments. You've got to talk him into a job. That silence spoke very loudly. And Frank, you're right. He said he had a Republican Congress, which was true, but for a few years they had all Democrats and it seems Joe Biden forgot about that. Thank you, Frank in Riverside for the phone call. Melanie in Rocklin, California. Hi, Melanie. You're on the Larry Elder show. Hi, Jennifer. Thank you so much for taking my call. I found three sentences that Biden spoke. But the ones that I wantto so if you have time, I'd love to get into that for it. You know this quick remark. But okay, So the first one that I caught 19 minutes in that I haven't heard any media address. Yet. Biden was asked about the Shut down Corona virus, You know if he'd implement another shutdown And As an intellectual person. I know he most likely meant to say infection rate right on DH that we need to slow it up and control the infection rate what he actually said. What we need to control the reproduction rate. Slow up, and Wow, I didn't catch that one. Melanie. That's it. That's a good catch. Yeah. Thank you. Thank you between the 18th and 19th minute and he that strikes me as eerie because of the ties to China. The other thing, and then they're well and also Bill Gates talking very, very frankly, about population control and all sorts of things. I mean, I'm sure you're right. It was probably an honest slip, but it makes you wonder if there's always something more going on. Absolutely. And then at 6:53 P.m. Pacific, he said, people deserve to have health care, period period period period. Well, if you say period at the end of a sentence such definitive that's a bold statement. If you carry out that period, nothing Alexis, which is people deserve to have health care. But or however, right, so I'm curious that there is a continuation of thought. And the last remark it's 702. His first responders deserve a minimum wage of $15 an hour. Firefighters make around $40 an hour or more. So that's that's a little alarming. And that's alarming to when you have so many cities and municipalities trying Tio defund police and emergency workers, whether or not defunding means a cut in salary to Melanie. Really great insights. We need to hire you to be in our research team. Very well done. Melanie in Rocklin, California Thank you for the phone call. And you know some good news for the Trump campaign as he wakes up today and gets back on the campaign trail two rallies already today in Florida, the Trump campaign announcing that they had their biggest online fundraising day ever after the final debate now Admittedly, I probably got 42 text messages, let sector the debate from Donald Trump Jr and others asking for four more cash. So the asks were on the ass. We're very strong. But President Trump's reelection campaign and the RNC said that their biggest day of online fundraising ever Raise $26 million in one single 24 hour period surrounding the final presidential debate. Bill Stepien, the campaign manager, said quote the president was the hands down winner. We also saw last night our biggest online fundraising day ever better than any day in 2016. Better than any day during our convention and quote surprising because the convention was a big money maker for the RNC, and certainly the campaign struggling to raise cash. They did it because of that performance from the president. Last night, Maura on the debate, your phone calls and some new polling information encouraging for the president and the Trump campaign. 888971 stage 889717243 Jennifer Horn in For Larry Elder Calva, Larry Elder Show now at 888971 Sage..

Continuous Glucose Monitors
"Hi everybody and welcome. This is episode number one, hundred, eighty, one of the intermittent fasting podcast I'm melanie avalon and imagine Stevens Hi everybody. How are you today Jen I am fabulous I am just immersed in all sorts of amazing data and learning about myself until like to elaborate I would. Melanie knows because she knows what I'm doing but for readers of Fast Feast repeat and even readers of. Fear you know I've been talking about personalized nutrition since I saw that famous Ted talk that I talk about with Dr Erin Seagal I saw it I twenty seventeen and it literally changed my life to understand that we all have personalized responses to foods and some of it's based on our genetic background. But a lot of it is in our gut microbiome and really just hormonal health in general. In fast, Feast repeat I talked about the work that Tim Spector is doing. He's my favorite Gut microbiome researcher from the UK and he had a study called the predict study, and then the predict to study which some of my friends did a year ago and I am now participating in the third round of this predict three it's with an APP called Zoe and he's one of the collaborators with. It but as part of the study for the past seven days I've been wearing a continuous blood glucose monitor that they sent me and I have to send it back, which is so sad because man is an opening to see how my body responds to different foods with my blood glucose. So I can see you know what it's doing all during the day all during the night up 'cause day. On how it responds to foods I'm so happy to report that I'm not surprised the foods that I thought that worked well for many guess what they work. Well, they do. So are you eating some of their stuff and your stuff? Well, I had to do that for two days. There were two days where I had to start the day eating these muffins that they sent me Oh, my Lord. Yuck. For listeners, we wanted to record the podcast earlier, which was like I can't record a podcast after eating the muffin. Hours right. I mean I was predicting that it was before I had even eaten the muffins but I had a feeling because I had to eat them in the morning cacique. You couldn't have anything before the muffins except water. Wake up in the morning and drink black coffee. So I had to eat the muffins and then wait four hours and then eat the muff a there were actually different muffins and then wait two hours and then I could you know have real food the first day of that opened at eight am and I never eat at eight am even on vacation you know if I'm going to have breakfast, we usually end up doing more of a brunch. So I can't think of the last time I've had food at eight am but I had to eat. I think it was three muffins that had been frozen and then I microwave dumb and the first round of muffins I think they're testing fat clearance like how quickly your body clears out fat after you eat a high fat meal. These were high fat muffins. There are high fat. Because, you could tell by reading the ingredients list you would not have probably eaten these muffins. going. To say. This is not a melanie study. No, you probably wouldn't have eaten the muffins but the first ingredient was like safflower oil or something Oh. Gosh. I know I, know I know but I ate them muffins than I was so crabby for those three hours 'cause they weren't satisfying at all. You know if I could put some butter on there or some strawberry jam but no I had to they tasted like a mix between a cornbread muffin and pound cake. But with less flavor said, then the the second set of muffins they were like gluten free cash I duNno? low-fat Muffins. But My my blood glucose responded great to both sets them up I had to do this blood test or I had to like squeeze out all this blood on this card and send it off to be anyway they're going to test the. I think my fat clearance because you had to do a certain number of hours after that, and it gives you a lot of information, but I also had to send an poop sample. That's right up my alley. Yeah. So that was interesting. It was a little more hardcore than the one I did for the American gut project. I won't go into details, but it was interesting. Let's just say and then I took them all to the post office and mail them in. Also. Fun, this guy like what's on your arm it was continuous blood glucose monitor and you know and I thought that was very bold question to ask a stranger at the post office but I explained it. But I should've said this is poop in this box, but I didn't. is putting it on hard. It was actually so very easy. It has the ability shared, but I did it you stick it to the back of your arm and you just in this little thing and you just click and then it just POPs. said it was easier than the finger stick. Okay two. Brands of CGM I'm betting great now. I haven't done either one yet. Well, this information is just so important I think because it's it's showed me. Like I had one meal that I've eaten so far that did not work very well for me. It was the only one and it was a flat bread topped with like a a lemon ricotta and then sauteed Brussels sprouts and then like Parmesan cheese and then a hot honey that one shot my blood glucose up higher than anything has so far probably the honey. But when I've eaten potatoes when I've eaten rice even. Toast. With egg on top. I. Have a very slow steady. Roz than a slow steady back down. I think that flat bread didn't have a lot of fat with the I mean had some fat but I probably normally have more fat with my carbs. So it just kinda spiked to me right up.

To crime. Ridden about twenty, five true crime books over the years and I think many maguire is perhaps one of the most interesting ones and baffling. This is Melanie. McGuire arrested today minutes after dropping offer children in daycare. Melanie, McGuire a New Jersey nurse was accused of killing her husband cutting up his body and throwing it into the Chesapeake Bay. In two thousand, seven, what was being called? The suitcase murder trial was generating an enormous amount of media attention, not just in New Jersey, but all across the country three bazaar discoveries, three separate suitcases, all containing human remains the woman who is on trial for her very life. She says the real truth behind the crime has never been revealed with no history of violence and no apparent motive for murder. Could she really have done it? She was this beautiful young nurse and they were the seemingly normal middle class couple and the murder happened in such a grisly way. The idea that this beautiful nurse could have actually killed her husband and then cut him up is just incredible. Of course, they were salacious aspects. Maguire is a nurse and prosecutors say she had an affair with a doctor. She didn't fit the profile I. Guess of a murderer over the years and colleagues of ours have come to me and said, you know Melanie McGuire proclaims her innocence and to tell her story I started thinking Oh maybe there is a little more to this case than what you see on the surface and then the idea podcast came up and I was all in on direct appeal examined the murder conviction of Melanie, McGuire him following a highly publicized trial looking at the evidence that was presented and the evidence that may have seemed insignificant at the time before own conclusion about Melanie's guilt. We hear at ABC have our own history with the Melanie.

A wrongfully convicted person. Correct. Absolutely and what have those years spend like? I tell people. It's not as bad as you think in some ways and it's so much worse than I could ever articulate in others. After all these years I. Still feel her I still feel bothered. I still feel like how could somebody think? That I did that. This whole saga begins on May. Fifth two thousand four with an odd discovery in Virginia Beach. Early morning a couple of fishermen and the kids are out on a boat by the Chesapeake Bay. Me and my friend Don Connors was going to go out fishing and we both had days off D. or Don.

What's Next For Metal Gear Solid
"Series is hitting P. C.. J.. Gabe at Gamespot, the military series is hitting. Via Gog. Konami has announced previously only a select few games in the franchise were available outside of consoles the. Games hitting the service either MELA gear bill you're solid and bill your saw to substance were already to in. Taiwan, prior to the official announcement. Malaysia solid and substance actually had come to before and your saw five was also released four PC. But this should give those who never played playstation or xbox a chance to experience more of the Franchise Miller you're solid for to the Patriots remains a PS three exclusive. The new offerings don't seem to have any enhancements and you're getting the original metal gear solid rather than the Gamecube remake which I personally prefer I prefer the original not necessarily the game remains what I'm saying substance dot clear. Yeah. Substance does feature has an extra content not found mill solitudes original release. Releasing as the as collector's series, also be able to get five Castle Dania N. Contra. Games. Including Super See Dracula's curse and Simon's quest these games originally released on the s along with the series along with the Melody Games. The total cost for all titles is thirty two dollars. Tim is very exciting stuff for people who WanNa play these Games on. My one question is, when are we ever going to get your solid for? That's the thing anywhere else anywhere besides the playstation three it's bizarre. I am utterly shocked like back for all the young ones out there which is crazy at this point like even that era, there's probably of people listening to this right now that don't know what I'm referring to but when melanie solid four came out, it was the mean game of when's IT GONNA come to three sixty and it's like, oh, man, how many disc? On. Like nine there was like photoshop shops like xbox three, sixty cases with like that stick. With metal gear solid four on ten million discs But the fact of the actually never came out on another console is really weird and I think a lot of it has to do with the whole Kojima. Konami situation that went down around MCS five, but even then the fact that four wasn't. Like ported at some point. Di Around. With the architecture of the game because I know the game was advertised as a PS. Four game or a PS three game, it was kind of synonymous with. The launch of that console envier to some extent feels very built into like when you're transitioning from chapter to chapter, I remember getting the loading screen of. Solid Snake Smoking, the cigar and you. Believe. There are like tips in there to be like, Hey, you know take a break like the which took awhile. This. Going to take awhile I. Hey, you know relax take a break between sessions all that stuff that stuff seem. Very built into like the PS three system as far as at least like how this stuff look like it looked like a PS three like installation screen as opposed to just an in game thing. So I wonder if there's something about that game in particular that it's tough to port.

It's Okay To Admit You're Not Okay by Melani Schweder
"It's okay to admit you're not. Okay. Bye Melanie sweeter of a brighter wild dot com. Hello dear friends. If you're anything like me, you're probably quite accustomed to putting on a smile and acting fine even when you're not sometimes, we can't avoid work school or social situations. No matter how we're feeling and we don't always feel comfortable dragging around our demons with us. So we lift up the corners of our mouths, cover up the pain and Spat out empty catchphrases in the guise of staying positive. We even do this to ourselves. Sitting at home alone were staring into the mirror we talk up little inspirational sayings and force are nagging little mental demons back into the dark corners. This is probably something that everyone can at least partially relate to but his practically a cornerstone of the chronically ill community. We are afraid of being a Debbie Downer afraid of being vulnerable afraid of being set apart from the rest of our friends and coworkers, and so the masks go on we say everything's okay even if we're exhausted or depressed or in a painful flare up. Even I find myself repeating the same phrase. When asked the obligatory `non-question question how are you? Oh, I'm doing well and you it's almost like someone has pulled an invisible string in my back prompting the exact response regardless of how I'm actually feeling that day. Maybe you find yourself doing the same. And just so we're clear I'm not advocating for spilling your guts out whenever someone simply tries to make small talk. There's a time and place for sharing your truce and struggles plus it's honestly just as bad to respond to someone asking how you are with I'm so stressed or tired or depressed or angry each and every time that's not a helpful way to interact with the world either perhaps you know someone who takes these opportunities to launch into a pity-seeking diatribe about their latest symptoms or doctors, appointments, more career failures, and perhaps your reaction to this person only reinforces your smile and fake it till you make it approach just something ponder. But this blog is really about allowing yourself to be exactly where you are right now instead of pretending or putting on a show, there's a pervasive oppression in the positivity and spiritual communities that tend to make us feel ostracized for experiencing a depth of painful and sometimes uncomfortable emotions. pain or fear or despair, and we are told to simply get rid of those feelings and replace them with something Shinier in prettier and happier. But the problem is emotions just don't work that way. When we stuff down our darkness, we only invite in more anxiety and shame wrapping are already blue moods in a blanket of self loathing embarrassment for those of us on. A healing adventure it's hard not to get sucked into the cult of positive thinking our brains absorb all the quickey facebook posts and motivational quotes, and soon, we begin to think that our ability to feel a wide range of emotions. Both good and bad might be an unhealthy think. Maybe we should only be feeling morm- fuzzy positive things. Then maybe we will finally heal ourselves. no let's just stop right there. Yes being optimimistic and choosing to focus on the lessons and opportunities, and all of Life's challenges is a good thing and can help you feel better. But you know what place real healing comes from self acceptance when you allow yourself to feel everything fully to sit with each thought and emotion until you've seen their every angle, that's when you start to heal when you accept yourself as beautifully flawed human being with both shadow an light aspects. That's when you start to heal when you allow yourself to be afraid and vulnerable and let love and support into your life. That's when you start to heal. You don't heal by denying your pain you only he'll when he walked through it. When something is kept invisible that thing tends to grow stronger, right so stop fighting with your own truth and allow yourself admit you're not okay. Sometimes, you can scream it in your car during rush hour traffic. You can softly side into your to your Sochi Yoga Mat. You can see it in therapy or over coffee with your best friend. It doesn't matter so much the method just that you're allowing yourself to be where you are without judgment. Dark things live within all of us is not just you all we can experience fear pain desperation loneliness Malays and lots more things that maybe we think we shouldn't be feeling but by denying them or sugar coating them, we're only letting them grow and fester until we're sick with self negation. So ask yourself how am I really feeling right now what is going well in my life and what are the things that I want to change? What is making me anxious or depressed or angry, and how can I allow those feelings to just be? I've been do some very dark places in my own life with six years of illness already passed a recent painful divorce and unexpected move out of my beloved home and current career and financial pressures. Yes. I think of tasted the unique flavor of every emotion on the spectrum at this point Augusta Tori journey of doubt and fear freedom and heartbreak pain an awakening. I've been lucky to have a beautiful few people who then runaway upon seeing my suffering they simply held space for me to feel what else feeling in the moment no judgment. No shame. No frenzied attempts at fixing me. I felt safe in that space to admit I wasn't okay. Are you ready to hold that kind of space for yourself? I hope you are or at least in the time being a hope you have a beautiful few people of your own who can hold it for you. Just remember everything you're feeling and experiencing is just perfect. You are exactly where you are supposed to be let yourself explore the shadows as well as playing the light.
White House to Target Hospitals for Uneven Covid-19 Data Reporting
"Hospitals have been contributing uneven data about Cove in 19 cases that are hampering the federal effort to gauge the pandemic. The Wall Street Journal reports is early is next week, the administration is planning to publicize the names of hospitals with data missing from the federal pandemic Reporting system for more we're joined live on the KCBS Bring Central news line. Bye. Melanie Evan's Hospital reporter for the Wall Street Journal. Thanks so much for being with us this morning. Time money for thanks for having me. Absolutely. So, can you tell us First of all, why is this data missing from the federal pandemic reporting system? So both hospitals and the administration have been asking that question They've been working on trying to understand. Where these gaps why these gaps exist. And they have found indeed that some hospitals are not Routinely reporting, so they've been asked. Hospitals have been asked to submit some information everyday things like how many patients with Kobe are in your hospital. Are you experiencing a nursing shortage? How many patients are using ventilators? Really sort of. Fundamental information that could be used right? So if the hospital running out of something you could write them supplies I needed so Oh, yes, some hospitals or not consistently reporting, But the other thing that they found was that there are some Errors at the federal level, so there is the hospitals. Send the data. Either through like a A private company or they send it to the state or they submit themselves. Through through a federal system. Somewhere after they admitted there are Other issues that are creating gaps in the data. So we've got flaws in the reporting system and some hospitals not reporting the right data. What is the purpose in making these data gaps public? How unusual is this? Well, so Ah, according to people familiar with these discussions, the UM the industry hospital industry was told that there are a couple of reasons for making the state of public One of them is that they're maybe researchers. Using this data to kind of track the pandemic or ask questions about the pandemic itself. So It would be some sort of public transparency about how complete the data is. But then the other reason is that Really up until like up until this point. All of this reporting has been voluntary. And and the federal government basically last week put hospitals on notice that it was now going to be mandatory. And if they didn't do it They risk Not getting paid by Medicare and Medicaid, which are going to It really subsidize their They're publicly subsidized insurance programs for the elderly, disabled for low income households. The federal government said. Look, if you don't start reporting this data consistently, we could we could Up. Hang you for the for those. Insurance programs. And and this making the state of public is one way to sort of make it very clear. I sort of put hospitals on notice. That the feds don't have their data and that they are at risk. Fascinating. Thanks. So much for your insight. We've been joined on the KCBS Ring. Central News Line. By Melanie Evans Hospitals Reporter for The Wall Street Journal. Que
Ex-adviser to first lady: Working for Trumps was a 'mistake'
"This is from page. One eleven of Stephanie. Winston coughs. New Book Melanie and me thirty five days before the inaugural. She says back in New York. I attended a meeting with president-elect trump in his office. The space was packed with. Boxes Trinkets and piles of paper and I thought I was a hoarder his office looked like a garage sale. Stephanie Donald, said tell me, what's going on with the inauguration planning Ivanka joined. Donald than me for the meeting I presented to the two of them. I grabbed my binder over to Donald Side of the desk and sat with my knees on the floor. He sat in his red leather chair leaning back clasping his hands ready for me to proceed Ivanka hovered over me. I. Went through hundreds of pages covering all eighteen events Ivanka made comments and ask questions will there be a red carpet. Where do we walk during the prayed? What about seeding at the swearing in after party? After the parade on Pennsylvania Avenue? Donald said quote I don't want floats. I said, okay. The president continued quote I want tanks and choppers make it look like North Korea There was no way. He really wanted goosestepping troops and armored tanks that would break tradition and terrify half the country. When he vodka North Korea she didn't Bat Ni-. I walked out of the meeting ruffled and worried. I texted close friend and colleague quote. North. Korea style military parade. Bad idea. That's just one of the anecdotes written in the new book by Stephanie Winston walk-off Cough farmer friend an adviser to first lady Melania trump smoke off. Of course, also played a key role in organizing the trump inauguration and twenty seventeen that has led to so much consternation and so much legal trouble ever since she has written the most detailed account of all of this in her new book, New Book called Milania and me the rise and fall of my friendship with the first lady joining us. Now for the interview is Stephanie Winston Will. Cough Miss walk-off I really appreciate the the trust it takes to be here I know you could be anywhere talking about this. Thank you for being here. And thank you for having me so much Rachel really. So that wouldn't rather be anywhere. Else Else I you to say that. Obviously there's a there's a lot here. There's a lot that's very raw here particularly about the distress. About the dissolution of your friendship with the First Lady of circumstances under which he left the white. House. I want to talk first of all though about something what you describe about the inaugural, which is really never been publicly described by anybody involved in it before you're pretty frank about the idea that there's a lot of missing money unaccounted for money in terms of what was raised for the inaugural versus what was spent. Do you feel like you have a general grasp how much money that might be do you have a theory or any knowledge of where it might have gone? Well I do know that at the time that I questioned where the money was going or how much everything costs I was asked to not attending meetings. So. It took me a few years to figure everything out. But it's just you know. People need to just follow the money. In terms of who is following the money it's remarkable that you describe the the difficulty and the decision that you made to cooperate with these multiple ongoing investigations including the Attorney General and. Having received a subpoena from Southern District of New York I know that those are ongoing proceedings and you're limited what you can say but do you feel like the people who are investigating this at various levels? Know what happened to the money? Do you feel like the investigations are on the right track in terms of them, figuring out what happened to these millions of unaccounted for dollars? Unfortunately with our Justice Department right now, I don't really know entirely what's going on, but some of these investigations and that's really sad and challenging place to be especially since this elections right around the corner. I do know that Joan Cari scene is still estimating is still open but as far as the southern district, I don't know where that stands as well as the intelligence May. Have you been has the White House contact you since your book was on track to publish since people started to realize what was going to going to be in this book has the Justice Department or the White House anybody else in the trump administration contacted you. I've actually been contacted by both the White House and the. The Justice Department. Can you tell us anything about either those communications for starting with the White House in terms of what they, what they wanted to communicate to you or what they asked if you? A couple of months I had to cease and desist as well as. Again, the last thing that any of these people want is for the truth to be told. I have lived with this shoulders for the last several years trying to make sense of it all trying to understand what happened. While I was working at the inauguration, but also what happened? While pressure fielding amounting around. Your nine ninety and releasing of where hundreds of million dollars was spent. This is you know it's like Donald Trump is the best game three Card Monte, right? It's like. Everything's a shell and everything's going in different directions chaos is just part of the game. As you said earlier I love it. You know only the best and Quite, a bit quite a bit of the best. You drive in, cow. Sorry didn't mean to interrupt. Please carry on. No No. Politics. This delays very awkward. The satellite delays made all the worse by all. Kofi driven Gremlins in terms of remote studio. So that was my fault. I'm sorry. Let let me just ask you first of all to go back and say whatever you wanted to finish in terms here thought there and I'll just ask another question which is If. The White House was telling the truth when they put out public statements denying that first lady, Melania trump, and the president had no role in planning the inaugural and that the when the White House when the White House said, they didn't know about any concerns about budgeting or how much things would cost or how things would be carried out during the inaugural. Your book would seem to give lie to those statements and make clear that the when the White House said those things that those aren't accurate. The machine of the false narratives that gets created by the White House is so overwhelming and so. Powerful and the fact that people really believed when you look around of the people that were actually involved in planning inaugurations if they're gonNA, pin it on me, is that was Milan. His friend. Works Right. Right in the quarter Malaga's friends the only person willing to help her and. You that's fight light show right on me without in calling me and asking me if it was So my integrity, my reputation everything was destroyed in a matter of seconds and. It was as if no big deal just flip, often move on. And I wasn't prepared to do that have I didn't feel sorry. Having the opportunity to tell your side of the story and to explain what happened during the inaugural to explain even what you could tell was happening with the financials of the inaugural being able to put in this book. Does it make you feel. Not I guess not protected in any way but at least does it make you feel like you're in a stronger position because at least now, you can articulate what you saw where you came from and what your side of it feels like a lot of the frustration that led to this book is feeling that you weren't allowed to defend yourself. And I'm still relying on First Person Council I'm still not allowed to say everything so I'm saying as much as I can within the law I. Think that being muzzled with an NDA for all these years it has been Ostra phobic to say the least I stopped living regular life by a free children a husband I really I sort of locked myself in. And it's amazing to me that I'm part of the three different investigations yet I'm witnessed all of them and it. It really is a raid of Shenanigans and I feel that the trump presidency is just leasing our country and I had no choice to not tell the story. I had to be here. Do I feel protected? I actually do feel more protected because now everyone knows the truth. and. I've been able to share my life story with what happened because it took over my life and. Am I you know. It's complicated.

"Clan tainted by deceit and deception, that is the description of the trump family by a former adviser and close friend to first lady Melania Trump. Stephanie Winston Wolkoff spoke with Lindsay Davis of ABC News the day before her book comes out in Melanie and me. The rise and fall of my friendship with the first lady walk off claims she's working with investigators to dig into potential financial crimes committed in connection with Donald Trump's inauguration. She says she was made the cover girl for what she calls inauguration shenanigans. In the interview, she she explains why she thinks Donald and Melania are perfect for each other before. Donald and Melania got married. He made it very explicit that he did not want to have a wife that wants to be in the spotlight as much as he did like Ivana tomorrow.
"melanie" Discussed on Table Manners with Jessie Ware
"Well, it still is such uncertainty and also a fair and we can like we needed a comfortable south. Sydney Drinking. Eating more but it was funny because I I always my food online and then of course, it was a time when you get hold of anything. So I was late Tros give him a little plug and do my shut which are quite enjoyed but I thought this is like the shittiest Christmas ever. All the things you'd only ever by Christmas. But I just yeah I mean I. I'm interested about how music is feeling now because I'm a go, there's so much to talk about I. Mean. There's so much of that conversation I. was. Talking about sounding still. I think in most people's lives and I was so busy we never stay still and I think in our career travel so much we're so busy you've got work you've got kids and you would never self imposed that much stay at home, and if I think this is the most I've ever been at home in my adulthood since my career started cold we started we'll spice 'cause we together in ninety four but I left home and I was sixteen. And I know I'd never let my. Nine I was little. I was I was in digs at the time. So we were with families I went to Performing Arts College in Kent. So yeah looking back I was way too to do that but that kind of started my nomadic life. I was moving near a student you all over the place aren't you move them from one place to the next and then spice girls happened and we continue to do that, and then with the traveling and touring and everything. So to be in one place for that time. Was a bit of a novelty at first I was. This is amazing. It's wonderful hanging out with a ago putting it to bed every night with every day was lovely to the point of just so. There's a reason I do the job I. Like say one place too long. You know one of the reasons and also there was that helping of I have music ready to go. To, how did it affect when you put it out or anything? I was when everything started to gather pace covert we were in Australia and I started my promotional tour and I had. A Fun trip here I organized all these Kube Ibm. Bees go in. Australia. La New York Montreal Melika was GONNA. Come out for a baby already fun and we did Australia and that all went fine and there was lots of toilet roll jokes because the point when all the totems disappeared. and. It was my very last interview the day before I left for a that got canceled because somebody was diagnosed at the station. I remember the time we got to La it was like a ghost town and it was so weird. So we'd lost all of this incredible promotion we had to get home, and then we just they won't be going to do and we thought. Should we die. But actually, we couldn't because we were too far into it to do that. So we just had to get really creative on on how we were going to promote. And actually. In some ways, it's a bit of a blessing because you might find. This is where you can. You. Can promote internationally from the comfort of your living room and get to places. We probably never would have been able to go to. So I've been having these days where I go today. I'm in South America and don't use them. You know. In the US at the end of the week. So it's kind of it's been interesting and fun in that way but it is starting to get a bit tedious and I. Miss People and I miss performing to people you know as you have an lots of online stir. LIVE STREAMS DJ set. But there's something really great. Philly in your control, which if you were going to go and record in TV studio and you'd be like, sorry, can I can I do take maybe like sorry everyone's going to get out I'm sorry to say well done. Share just a neil now on this you like in control of. Your performance and I didn't know for me I always get so terrified when I do TV I'm sure you you are not petrified because you have to do so much in your life just me I am it may lose weight. Yeah I think maybe when I was with the girls we were doing such volume of it and we were so I think we were so exhaust states that you know obviously our lives we live on adrenaline and I think you get to a point where you're so exhausted that you got enough adrenaline to get nervous you just like kind of not going through the motions but even survival mode. And I remember that and I remember sometimes thinking actually prefer it when I'm really tired because I'm not as nervous. But now I do because my life is much slower pace. So yeah, I re- cow everything, I? Do I mean I I just wanted to. Really the spice girls, how long were you together like? You were together for a while but like you to outbid a T. did everything in quite compact, it was time I want to be released in July ninety-six I remember. So well, my leave is barbecue. Sick. Well. Yes. Usually that was ninety-six and then Jerry had gone by I. Mean I don't even know when it was ninety eight probably springs some of nine thousand eight. Yeah because until so. Yes kinda to gaze to albums a movie like evening with the Vice Gus I. International Ho pro. It was yeah and then like. Thinking about like I know what it's like when you get from like a long tour, I'm talking about long tour being six weeks or something and I haven't done that for years. But the impact on your health and in you just you doing the Brit Awards. I mean, you must have been on atmosphere. Shorts. Five Imagine Nakajima, and it must have been I. Know What? It's like when you get tour in that tool blues I mean, would it was? Wild how weird it was great. But for that, you know from the moment we started until we came off the American leg of the tall. So that was just the focus stand. So I think that was. Remember when that was Melanie and Victoria were pregnant. So we had like a natural break. We did three months in the US without Jerry I guess that was the first time we'd stopped in over two years. And to be honest with you fell apart you know.

Removing Logs and Specks (Luke 6:41-42)
"Luke chapter, six versus forty, one and forty two. Jesus says. Why do you see the SPEC? That is in your brother's eye. But do not notice the log that is in your own I. How can you say to your brother brother? Let me take out the suspect that is in your eye. When you yourself do not see the log that is in your own I, you hypocrite first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the SPEC that is in your brother's i. Mrs. Pretty clear what we see in Jesus teaching here and really all over scripture, it is far easier to see sin in others than it is to see sen in ourselves. I get his. It's much more natural to us to observe sin and others, and not observed sin in ourselves. And, so Jesus is saying very clearly here. Whenever you notice sin, others stop like immediately. Stop and ask. What evidence is there of sin even specifically that Sen we see and others. In our own lives. Like. Sin Around us should immediately cause us to examine sin in us. To ask, how do I need to be more holy more like Jesus? What do I need to confess and so to do this? Like Jesus not saying not to help your brother or sister to help someone turn from sin like he wants us and cause us to. The Gospels thing. About Matthew Chapter Eighteen all throughout the new task, we are commanded to help one another grow in hall in his to become more like Jesus to spur one another on toward Christ restore one another when we are caught in sin like we do this word. This is one of the ways we love each other. If someone in my life, see sin in my life, and just doesn't say anything just ignores it, and lets me continue down a sinful path, and that person does not love me like if they love me, they will call me away from sin, but they will do it with a humble heart. That has examined that sin, and just the presence of sending their own hearts in the process, and in this way we realize that helping one another turned from sin as long as we're doing it, luke six forty, one to forty two style like letting that lead us first and foremost to examination our own hearts, we realize. That we grow in Jesus in this process and others grow in their relationship with Jesus and likeness to Jesus in this process so God help us. We pray to do this well. God opener is to sin. In, US, and around us. GotTa we want to turn from sin, and we want our brothers and sisters in Christ turn from sin. We all want to experience the life you have for us, so give us sensitivity to send Anna's and around us when we see sent around us God. We pray for Hugh, Melanie. We pray for honest self examination. Even practically right now. As, we might think through. Where we want to help those around us grow in Christ, God show us ways where we need to grow in Christ. God us even seeing sin and others to expose in your own hearts and. Do this work of sanctification in us, and then you ask God, please use us to. Do this work of sanctification and others lives for their good God. We pray. You'd help us to remove logs from our eyes. And to remove specs from our brothers and sisters is and in this process God. Please make us all look more like Jesus help us help us to be sensitive to sin in others lives, and in our own lives, and in the process opposite to confess it, honestly humbly to repent of it, and to follow you and experience the life. Eve designed for us to live. We pray this in Jesus name. Amen

With the new media summit, and basically an English that means we for some reason, other Steve believes we know what we're doing and we are you know. People that have influenced when it comes to podcast in business and life, so it's always good to talk with somebody that's in in that ecosystem, because it's a it's a great group of human beings for sure and been looking forward to having this conversation for a while. So. You do a ton of things and one of the things that jumped out at me. and our conversations that we've had. Is the concept of money and you know how people view it. Especially small business owners and entrepreneurs and Sola preneurs that are out launching their businesses the relationship with money sometimes. And we discussed this a little bit in the pre show. I think holds people back from reaching the success levels really could hit if they had a different relationship. So what got you into this? Line of work in in in what are some of the things you commonly see happen with people. Well it is so tackle the first question I. Had I get into? It I actually kind of fell into it. Because I was watching so many of my entrepreneurial clients not make progress in implementing in being able to take what should work and actually get financial results from it. I started looking at. Patterns Person I look at patterns today I was looking at like. What's the pattern here? I'm seeing. People have no shortage of ideas, no shortage of enthusiasm, new shortage of passion for what they're doing, but they are having a shortage of cash flow. So what's really going on here and they started to realize that. as entrepreneurs, only business owners, coaches consultants..

NBC's free streaming service Peacock hopes to cut through subscription fatigue
"Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Melanie and Matt Peacock, which is the streaming offering from NBC? Universal and comcast is coming online next week. You know people made fun of Peacock in the industry. People were like Oh. Peacock is so late and peacock is so behind, and peacock is going to be free and Haha that's funny and I have to. To I'M GONNA treat myself not for one minute that I think that was funny. I thought that is sensible logical, and it will be a standout in this crowded field, and I kind of feel like I'm right now a lot of people. I think also were thinking that I was right. We'll see, but there is definitely what what comcast calls subscription, fatigue and I agree. Agree there is a feeling in the consumer world that there's all these subscription television services that are pitching themselves as Netflix's alternatives or or Netflix's for X., or you know you gotta get this upgrade to HBO and get HBO. Max and they all cost money. And if you look at the advertising associated with peacock there hammering home, the fact that this is free, if you. You want a free alternative to those other guys. This is for you and there's some pretty good stuff. I mean there's thirty rock. There's law and order. There's movies from NBC Universal You. Know they've got decent stuff on there. And they're looking for that casual TV viewer, who is migrating away from the cable universe, cutting the cord and looking for something they can kind of. And they don't necessarily need the latest greatest game of thrones that that. The premium subscribers looking for I wouldn't use game of thrones, because that they would need but other things they don't necessarily need, and they don't want to find it and I know people in the industry. For example, it still haven't figured out how to get HBO Max and it all just feels confusing, and and they can't deal with it and so this thing that being free and And the casual viewer that's definitely does appeal to me. You know if I had a long day. I WanNa, Watch something short easy, familiar and free, but you can also pay if if you don't have comcast us as your cable provider, or if you don't have a an access to it that way, you can pay five dollars a month and if you wanted to be ad, free? Free you can pay ten dollars a month and I will note that both of those prices are cheaper than an HBO subscription. So that is an option that I. Think is the people will want to look at meanwhile. Disney plus dropped Hamilton. They've needed something. They haven't had anything that really appeals to older people, or you know not not little kids for a long time they had a huge jump in people downloading their APP over that Hamilton weekend. Whether Hamilton really helps Disney right now remains to be seen, but I think the buzz around. It can't hurt no definitely not, and that's why they moved up the theatrical release, which was not supposed to be till twenty twenty one and put it on the service over the July fourth weekend they. They need a positive narrative right now Disney. Because this next earnings, call is going to be brutal. They have zero revenue from the theme. Parks Pin is just in free fall without sports. They have no movies in theaters because there aren't any theatres they need something. And now they have these Hamilton numbers that they'll be able to reveal and I've seen a lot of people speculating about. About. How Big Hamilton is going to be on Disney pleasant? How many people are just going to subscribe for that? I think those numbers are going to be big but I think there are a little bit skewed in the discussion by the fact, that Hamilton is a media phenomenon and everybody on social media in the media world to talk about it. Ad Nauseam so I'm not sure. Sure exactly how big it's going to be. I think you may disagree with me a little bit on that I just feel like you know reminds me of Hbo had things like the Sopranos and everybody was talking about it and you say well. It's in a bubble, and it's the media, elites, or whatever, but the truth is that seeps out in gives the gives the product A. A bit of a sheen a feeling that you kind of made me want to be a part of that and want to watch what they have. The the issue is coming. Follow it up with anything and I don't know we'll see. Thank you matt. Thank

"Is the Hey yes, I think I agree with that, though yeah, big time, but still get out of it. She says that they are to people who have a lot of passion and think a lot of like. He comes off as reserved and quiet, but Lori is not, and she says ultimately they're both equally bad for one another true. Why weren't you a friend that said? I think this is wrong at that time. Nate. Laureus funds a lot of time reading scripture and singing hymns in jail and Melanie goes out, and she doubles down on Laura's knowledge of Scriptures. She says she's like you know. Laurie does love the Lord she loves Scriptures and beautiful things, you know Hawaii and whatnot. She says that lorries love for the Lord and Gospel of Jesus Crisis at her heart, and this has to be an incredibly painful thing to her that she has to come to believe that what she's gone against. That she's gone against what is true but Melanie follows up by saying that she doesn't know Lori will ever get to the point where she understands that she actually did wrong. Yeah, I don't I don't buy that Melanie. Truly thinks it's wrong anymore, but then nate us. Melanie this very question. What should happen to Laurean? Chad if they are found guilty and melanie pauses for a second and says whatever the punishment is in our country jail time etcetera. She says that whenever you take someone's life, it's safer for them to be in a place where they can't influence other people. Yeah! She thinks that what they teach is bad needs to be hidden away from others to find before more. I but then also she says whenever you take someone's life, and at this moment, neither of them have taken anyone's lives right to our knowledge. Sentenced on I think they have obviously. There's no charges yet right but I've been filed. So, what does she mean? Does. She know that they killed. I. And this is a gun. I, feel. She knows more, but again I just don't feel like. She believes like they did ultimate wrong. I feel like whatever the punishment is in this country. No like had I been a friend or say a Melanie's situation right, but not bought into the bullshit out. have been like they deserve jail time. They just jail for the rest of their lives. You can't kill people and to me. She wasn't that adamant about it. She was like. Oh, well, you know just whatever the punishment is here like. Obsessed with both. Yeah, exactly like she is, she's still in the deprogramming phase I believe or maybe she's not even deprogramming, because she's still into the end of times visionary crab maybe. So Anyway Nathan mentions her relationship Tammy's family, because it's come out that Melanie has been in contact and connected to one person and Tammy's family and we don't know who that is. And she said that it was healing this person. TAMMY's fun family supposedly settled. It was healing for her to hear Melanie. Share her her feelings and thoughts and and things that have happened..

"In UC art in an art museum You don't understand it. Let's say you know because it's not pictorial. You don't know that's a woman with a basket or something but it makes you feel something and it's all we have all these senses and I think sometimes like if you look at one of Sullivan's baskets you feel something that you can't perhaps explain in words but it you're drawn to it and I think that that sort of is becoming more attuned to all of the fences and not just like thinking brain has really helped me a lot in terms of feeling more comfortable in my skin and that brings me to the final chapter which is called finding voice Which is how through the work that we do with our hands we can find our our true selves in our our way of expressing ourselves. And I think that everybody needs a way to express themselves and certainly I do a lot of expressing through words and I do a lot of expressing through handwork. And somebody else. Does that mean that everybody has to do handwork? Somebody else might you know? Express themselves through playing the piano which is handwork to actually or dancing or acting. But I think that creative expression is integral to our wellness and I think that we that in our culture were so focused on so-called six which is equated very often with money and prestige. But I think that a lot of people are really unhappy. Because they're kind of like it's they're not they're they're creative expression is clogged. And they're on this path toward what the I've been told is success and they just keep on keep on sort of thinking it's going to be. We're going to get their flake. We have a bigger title or we have more money or we have that new piece of clothing. You know all of these the stuff that we're putting on top of who we are instead of the expression that comes from within us. Thank you very much for being a guest on the program today. It's been a pleasure speaking with you. And the both nurturing and the creative expression and the empowering Voice of what we want and who we want to be in these activities And these engagements that you profile in these people at work and at life this way. I just can't. They cannot be overstated. Melanie and I really appreciate the.

"This is cultivating place. I'm Jennifer Joel. In Two Thousand Fifteen Melanie. Failing a maker a writer a creative left her fifteen corporate career in the publishing world without a completely clear sense of what she would or wanted to do next. Her intuition told her that whatever it was it would involve engagement with the handwork knitting sewing time in the garden that she loved but that she had moved away from personal direct contact with in her career in the course of making many things following this retirement of sorts. It was the crafting of a simple folded paper box a box of incredibly basic utility that. Melanie had an epiphany that in a circuitous way. All of her creative making was in fact her trying to connect to her own survival and that that impulse was tied inextricably to her own sense of self. Melanie and I actually chatted in February before the shutdown which seems present somehow in hindsight and I think speaks to the fact that this growing global dissatisfaction with what we have been told. Success is has been in the making for a very long time. Enjoy this conversation about her newest book. Making life working by hand and discovering the life you are meant to live in which melanie explores how others have been manifesting this impulse and leading lives of great connection and meaning long before covid nineteen and how they might be role models for any one of us in making our own lives as we move forward. Hi It's good to be here. Give us a little bit of context of why you wrote the sentence and I want to spend more time in the garden and this is not a trick question. This is me leading up to how you came to find yourself in a place where you wanted to write a book about people who make their lives by doing valuable artistic useful beautiful things with their hands. Okay so the introduction to the book I was writing about what was going on in my life Before I started working on the book and basically for twelve years I worked at Abrams books. Which is a New York City publisher? I didn't actually work there. I worked from home and went into the city one day a week and I Published books about craft and creative living and I started there in. I guess it was two thousand and three and it really was a dream job and I felt very fortunate to have it and I worked with a lot of Different extraordinary people over those years but in the last few years I started to realize that I wasn't I wasn't feeling really that happier satisfied with With where I was I started to feel like I felt like I had my hands tied behind my back. I was spending so much working on other people's books. I was spending a lot of time. Dealing with profit and loss. Statements is dealing with the rise of social media and what that the effect that had on whose books we published and how we publish them is dealing with kind of a whole change in in the book world and I felt like the emphasis where I was was on to selling more books is opposed to the the true quality of the books and the meaning of the box and I just realized that I was like in my head all the time and it was sort of agitated in my head and so After a couple of years of really thinking deeply about that I decided to leave and it was a big decision. I was had spent a lot of time thinking about you. Know How it was gonna make a living and what about my retirement plan and not getting vacation pay and I was able to leave that job most importantly because my husband got a job at had health insurance. And so that gave you freedom to really be able to disconnect from it and And I wasn't sure what I was going to do. I just felt like I had to take some time away from all the chatter in my mind and all the sort of stress that I was used to living with on a daily basis In my work and I had a couple of things I knew. I wanted to take a graphic design class and I knew I wanted to work in the garden and I remember on the my very first morning after my last day after I had sort of I did have an office in New York City and an office in my home and I had officially moved out of my office in New York City and finished and gone home and the next morning. I remember I think it was May and going outside and I think I I don't know if I was weeding. It seems like there might have been that many weeds then but I went outside and I was doing something to the garden the ground and I just thought. Oh my gosh I can do this. I get to choose like anything is possible in so at that moment. I really felt like rather than you know. All the concerns. About what if this? What if that and It was more like I can do anything. Yeah I love that. I love that. So and there is you know there is just such a an empowering self sufficiency if not you know fully self sufficient reality there is this base line understanding of capability and self sufficiency in putting yourself to work with your garden. Yeah it's it's impressive and really that is at the heart of all of the endeavors that you have chronicled in the book but before we get to the book take us back a little bit and you know where were you born and raised and who were the people and places in makers are or plants people plants that grew you into a person that would spend dedicate their life to the discussion of and centering of craft.

"It is very odd to do it again. You know if they had already done it so melanie asked about this and Laura. That was fine because she and Chad had been married to so many times. And you know previous lives and Melanie confirms that Lori herself believes that she has led twenty one lives and five lives on this earth. Chad says that he was a holy. Ghost has lived thirty one. Total lives and five lives on this earth as well Then my favorite. Oh I'm just saying that's a lot of lives. It is so now onto my favorite piece. Nate asked Melanie about the portals. I was so excited to hear the answer so nate Melanie about Chad. Creating a portal lorries closet and Amanda. Do you WanNa tell one about the closet portable. Oh my gosh yeah. So Nate's face was hilarious and he was like it sounds crazy and then is it like a box. Look yes. Please show me what this Puerto looks like. She didn't one hundred percent no 'cause she was like I wasn't there I don't know but it's like a spot that that Chad set a prayer over and it's not like he could come through it like we kept joking he can walk through the portal. It was a physical place for Chad and Laurie to interact spiritually so again they didn't walk through this magic portal. They could just talk spiritually. I WANNA know what? Chad's to the portal was like. Where did he have to be to talk to her? The he also inequality was on the bowl. Amanda he's not there yet but did like each go. Its closet. Time seven o'clock time. I don't know I mean Chad had tammy and and Laurie had Charles. So I don't know how can you explain that? Oh honey I'm going to go sit in the closet for yeah like if my husband saw me in the closet just talking to myself he commit me while Charles Bad. Yes I tried mystery. Saw time to go you go. Oh my gosh like how? How does anyone Hormel any give just hearing about portal and still just imagine you told me? Yeah I have to go to the closet to talk to someone. I would think that you were losing your mind. Yeah you have I would detain myself. That's for my own safety so yeah I can't wait for part two and three because you know this is just going to get weirder and weirder. Melanie says that Laurie. Laurie had doubt herself so that was interesting..
"melanie" Discussed on We Saw the Devil
"But Melanie seem to agree with or listen to the outside teachings and I wonder too if she is just saying that she didn't really believe it all now or if she was really into it and then backed away because she did say she kinda got sucked in. Yeah I believe I think those were sucked in. Because he asked like. What were you brainwashed? And she was like read washed. Oh honey I it's. It's very strange but I wonder why she didn't meet Laurie terribly long ago. Though realistically right like how so what made them so close instead of the next woman in Church other than they. Had you know some common things but like you you hang out with the with this person they start getting a little weird. You're like okay. You're weird but you're still cool and then it's just like well. Let's not forget to that. They started doing the podcast together. Like Melanie Gass. Okay so Melanie Gabe on her own accord as her own individual person has written books has a podcast if she does have a little bit of a name for herself right so people who. Melanie Gibbons too so you know. I'm sure that Lori kind of got in there and it was like I have to famous friends now. May maybe I am an say. I'm not going to follow any weird teachings you have now for knowing someone that like short of time and then being like. Oh Okay Yeah. She does seem though. I don't know how how authentic that is. If like. She was all in or she does mention a few times that she was a little more. I don't know she was more wavering. Yeah if what they were saying was truth or not. But it's hard to tell us. Nate out something along the lines like if any beliefs crossed the line and Melanie said yes. But we're GonNa talk about that later and I think she was talking about the Zombie. Yeah that's what my mind immediately went to. I think she said SOM- we'll get into the Zombie stuff later or something and then did he has to ever make you feel special or chosen. And she said yes but she said that she. Didn't you know here it personally from God? She didn't get the message from God. It was just Laurie. Kept saying you are special. You are young. Talked her into it. And then Laurie also told her that she had been friends with both know her Lori and Chad in a previous life he and she's like well. That's what Laurie told me. And then she laughed and she's like I have no memory of that. Yeah so it kind of sounds like she wasn't fully bottom right..

"All right so nate immediately starts with. How did you meet? Chad and Melanie says that she met Chad at a conference about his last days. Dreams and visions but she met him in Ogden. Utah at a camp slash conference. Melanie went up to chat and introduced herself to him so she initiated their meeting. The right and then immediately asks how she obviously met Laurie so melanie met. Laurean October of two thousand eighteen when she was teaching a class at Church and then Laurie walked up and introduced herself to Melanie Jeb. Melanie said they shared some life stories some trials tribulations and also their quote excitement for the. Second Coming. Melanie said that Lori was very upfront about Jj autism and how hard he was to deal with at times. Yeah I mean if you have a special needs kid to. That's a lot of your life so I'm guessing. She was just sharing a lot of her life with with Melanie. And we're talking about Melanie. Give if it's other melanie we will specify because now I know to Melanie's in one conversation is a little harder right so melanie had mentioned that. Lori met Chad when they went to an event where Chad speak. She couldn't remember the exact date but she was October or November twenty eighteen and from that point forward. Laurean Chad. Were talking a lot also during the conference or wherever they had gone as well Nate then had asked if they're discussions like he was just like wasn't a it wasn't anything unusual right like something that you talk about. Someone had similar beliefs that the church for did they take it a step further. And she's like no. They took a step further. They were discussing things that were not something to talk about at Church. It was something that you would talk closely to someone else without other people listening so I wonder how these initial conversations went. You know if she's saying that no you would probably talk about that in private. Like what the heck were they talking about right? I can imagine right and then they both knew that Chad was married with kids. He also mentioned Tammy of come to these events and she said no. Tammy and the kids were never present at these events. I wonder why that is. Can you imagine I mean? I only have one kid but tried to take multiple kids anywhere. No you have all his are older. So I thought when the Ben an issue like at all for us and then Tammy Tammy was involved. Wouldn't she want to go with her husband? Some point maybe also think of travel expenses too because we all know they didn't really have a ton of money they're driving though I know but like it's still extra food extra stuff like it is expensive to go anywhere. I don't buy it. I think Chad was doing this on purpose. And talking to other women over right. I think he's a creep. But I'm saying like there could be a legitimate reason to it too but yeah he he absolutely is a creep in every way shape and form so then later on Chad came down to Arizona So that was in November for an event..

"The world. One person at a time. Go to Jamie Ivy DOT COM. Click on the preorder. Your story matters button and I cannot wait to go through this with you. Okay here is my conversation with my friend Melanie Melanie. Welcome to the Happy Hour Jamie. I'm so happy to be here. I should say welcome back to the happy hour because this is technically. If we're going to get technical. This is your fourth time to be on the Happy Hour. How Fourth Time. I know so I wrote it down First of all you are here the last time you were on like a for real for real happy hour was April of two thousand fifteen. Oh man that's been a long time. I mean a lot has happened in a that. He's talking about. I don't even know what you're talking about. I mean a lot has happened in three days so here and then you were on in June of two thousand sixteen when I did the happy hours or minute and then you did. The holiday gift guide with me in two thousand seventeen and then here we are in two thousand twenty and here we are in two thousand twenty and it looks exactly like we all thought it would. Oh my gosh so let me. Just let everyone know. Because I don't often tell people when we're recording because we get pretty far ahead here at the happy hour and that makes everyone's life easier but we're recording Monday don't know what data's let's see twenty something of March the twenty third okay. That's good to know we need to know that. We'RE SMACK DAB in the middle of corona right in the middle. Today was our first official diatribe school online. I don't know what your kids are doing. I are chatting. I don't know where we need to now I looked at. The light was on Caroline's room so I assume that means that she was doing something but she has art first period and I was like. I don't know how you do virtual arts. I'm not gonNA worry about it. Yeah that's your school stingy. Like here's what you need to do. They sent us. They sent us a schedule so the way so. She's in high school so she's a junior and so the way they do. It is on Mondays and Thursdays. They're doing like first third fifth and Seventh Period. Like at nine eleven one in three. But they said they wouldn't be to our sessions. It would just be like. That's the teachers have to get on live with them twice a week. And then they'll get google classroom assignments in addition to that. I guess okay. What about last week was our spring break and so today Monday and Tuesday? Our teachers are meeting and then it's something on Wednesday but sure enough I did make. My kids is scheduled the hard thing for me. My oldest is sixteen. He's assault is in sixth grade. We just need different things. Yes yes needs a schedule. I need to Taylor what to do every minute of the day. If I'm not there in Cayden looked at me after I handed out the schedule I was like. Are you kidding me when I doing outside? I really she'll go along with what I'm saying folks. We'll talk later. No what kind of school. They're going to have but I don't know I don't know. I was appreciative. That I felt like ours came with a lot of messaging of. We need to give each other a lot of grace. Nobody's ever done this before. It sounds like there's not going to be a big emphasis on grades necessarily Which I appreciate because in in this is a weird thing but it's here on. This is the spring of junior year or so like these grades. It's a big deal you know. They've canceled a lot of the act's sat's and So that comes with its own set of kind of complications. It's so crazy and we'll just have to I mean here's another Melania. I read your book over the weekend and I sat down to my office this morning. And if people don't know a lot of times when authors write books and they send out press books they come with a list of questions for potential interviewers to ask I hold those super loosely at my show but I looked over them and the very first question. Is Your list. Your book came out in February Mighty. Okay first question on the list says it seems like the world has gone crazy like little. Didn't they listening team how crazy the world would feel when we sat down to record our? March twenty third. I mean I have laugh so hard because you know how with book publishing. There's so much thought that goes into 'cause I wrote that on the bright side and turned it in probably a year ago April so April two thousand nineteen I wrote it and called it on the bright side and we were like. This'll be perfect because it will come out in spring the year of the presidential elections. And everybody's GonNa need to remember that we can all love each other even if we don't vote the same and whatever no. I didn't think looks a book called on the bright side. That's GONNA come out during a global pandemic I mean what are the odds of that? I mean I'm thankful for it though. I mean we can get about it. But isn't it really great? I I enjoyed reading it and getting away from the news and stuff this weekend so I think it's great melody but laughing at the first question of the world sales crazy. Yeah it does. We had no idea. How is your home? Really Been in the midst of this crazy world. You know. It's funny because my husband has teased me because my life really doesn't look that different. I'm an introvert. I stay home. You know I keep seeing that quarantine name that's like when you realize you're real life doesn't look much different than quarantine and that's kind of how feel like already live on. Amazon prime in grocery delivery and all that stuff I think for me. The hardest thing has been that they're around all the time like having people in the house like. I'm used to having my quiet time and I don't have that anymore. I think for Perry my husband. He has a landscape business and so thankfully he's still able to because they're outside so he can go do some stuff that's normal for him And then he helps with a family ranch down south and so he can still go there and be socially distanced am I think it's hardest on Caroline. I think it comes and goes but I think for the teenagers and you know my best friend has a son who's a senior in high school and I think little kids I get that they're stir crazy but you can get them out in the street and they can run and play and all that stuff but I think for the teens. It's such a loss of their social life. Which is teenagers? You know having teens. I mean it's such a huge part of their identity and who they are and you know caroline even last night. God had a meltdown and she was like for all always say that I hate school. She was like. I wish I were going back to school tomorrow. She's like I'm not going to see anybody you know. It's just not the same and so I think it's a really weird new normal right now and I feel like for me I just keep reassuring are at some point. We're going to get back to the way it was. But you also think you can't get this time back which is so weird you know especially for these kids at the end of their high school career. You know. Yeah I've seen a lot of people talk about You know making the most of it and you know I always. I've been talking about this week. I always keep thinking. There are plenty of people who are losing their jobs. This is like life or death not but I know financial income for people and there are a lot of people who they're still going to work every day because they are doctors nurses and essential people and the people that were so thankful for them. But I have thought about that. I'll tell you this. Last week was our spring break which was a joke and he just felt so crazy. We're supposed to go to Antonio Austin and I do not know why we always end up in San Antonio we love the food and clothes would use our Marriott pointed our kids. I think we're going on vacation. That's so funny. See We went to Austin for our spring break so I guess that's what we do. We just we just visit each other's towns. It's each other's towns. It's so funny. I mean literally were so close if Aaron needed to run home because we forgot something he could totally go to our house when even know he was gone. But we just stayed home. I think the weirdest thing for me was it. Just felt so different than what we thought. And that what I don't know about you but mine has been like this kind of loss of expectations like yes. This was not supposed to look this way and I'm learning will already knew this did not learn this about myself. It's being exposed a lot more. That's how much I like to know how things are GONNA go. Yes I've said that so many times to friends where I'm like. It's they could just give us an end date and say even if it's May I if they could say by may first but it's not knowing to me makes it so much harder. It has been hard but it's a crazy world and we're going to visit we. Are we argue? I say in the book that every time I write a book God absolutely tests me on whatever. The title of that book is because it's so true like every time I was like. Lord I mean this this low match like stills law. Okay so tell me. Let's back on your book well for Churches. Small things like when I was in the middle of writing at like at the time. What started that book was? I was really thinking about my grandmother. And how she had this huge impact in the big legacy even though she never even had her driver's license she lived within like two blocks of all of her siblings but just how much she lecture legacy of love and faith and all of that to her family and it was just about God using you right where you are in a little small pieces of your life and then we called at Church of the small things in in the time. I was writing that book number one. I felt like my life got smaller than ever were. I was really having to dial into just okay. What I do everyday is important like. This is the biggest step because I really felt like at that point. God was calling me to step back from taking a lot of speaking engagements and traveling and all of that so I was like okay so my life is going to be right here and then he also called. Perry an idea in that time to start a small worship service to like literally start a Church of small things in our neighborhood that we did for three years. And we're not doing anymore but all of that happened during that time and I was like. Oh this is weird like I. Didn't I called it. Churches small things. Because I thought that was clever name so I always say my next book is going to be called like how to live on ten million dollars on the coast of Italy. You know or something like that like how to travel around Europe in style like test me on that God. I'll go do that and then friendship. I just felt like that was a time and it was kind of the history of friendship but it just felt like a Lotta my friendships. Were changing a lot for different reasons. I mean my friend Jen Who ultimately passed by with sick with terminal cancer at the time and we were just in a different stage of life. Now it's funny because we've all really come together but that was just that stage of life where our kids were all so busy like they were all elementary and junior high kids and it just. I felt really distant from my friends. And it's weird to think. I was writing this book about how much my friends meant to me. But I thought I've never felt less connected to them during that time. You know I think that's interesting about friendship because I remember reading your book and I remember when your friend Jen was going through cancer. I think that's one thing that in you even talk about in the very first. I don't know if it's the first chapter of the opening of this new book of yours on the bright side. You talk about girlfriends and yeah. I did cry when he talked about. Last time. You saw your fringe in this whole season.

Now turns out their numbers that we found in his call. Who had sixty seconds remaining? Oh after the fact one of which was an answering service for him but at that point the account has been closed and we only found that out when Rpi just basically went through his tax and his tone of started calling so there was clearly other stuff going on here that we weren't even aware of what was that phone call. You found out there was a phone call to messaging service made when no I'm saying there wasn't we located a messaging service that he had that we didn't know seconds remaining basically during the trial so my point is if we didn't know about the Messaging Service.

I never thought I would a million years crochet and I I teach as well and help girls with their ged. So I mean that part of it is fulfilling. Is it a difficult assimilation? Absolutely that you have to. You can't think about Your Life. You have to keep a very fine line between the outside world in and this one because if you live too much in the outside you you can't survive in here and vice versa. The same so all right next question on twenty twenty episode. Melanie said she was notified of Bill's death by the police in a phone conversation in which the police said he was found on different days. This is quite different than what she said on the podcast when she said the notification happened in person and not on the phone and that she didn't know how or it was or if it was even self harm. How does Melanie account for these differences? The discrepancy comes in that I was notified. Basically incrementally so initially. I'm driving home with my children. I get a phone call from my mother. The police were here. They say you're not in trouble. They need to talk to you. So we all agreed That trump's children at home and my dad and I went to the police station. That's where in fact. I was notified the first time all I was told is your husband's deceased.

And then once they kinda find an interesting and pointing the direction they want to go and we'll start. Yeah. That's also because I've had my kids in these organized sports leagues as young as four years of age. And it kind of really just simulates the way I played when I was a kid. We played more in the street or in the neighborhood without referees, and coaches, and all that we kind of had a handle the problem solving aspects of the games in a sense. Whereas today, I think these organized sports they kind of take that opportunity away from the kids. Yeah. Kinda why we hill off.
