"Your guys are considerably younger than i am. And and your full of passion you have the same path. I had Back when i was your age and good to see that there are some and even around town here. The number of young hunters that i see onto five zero and talking will bear hunting and women being average. I mean the women who are hunting. And i think it's phenomenal when i see this taking place. And if they have the drive and passion. That's what's going to help change things down the road. We offering plead picture. Yep that's right. No five year goals. We need a fifty year goal. Exactly yeah well. I think that something we can take away from. First nations you know they. They're looking generation right. They're not looking two years down the road. It's a very long-term approach. And i think you know. We need to start taking that approach in our governance as well and and being so much more long-term on every level not being. You know being very holistic right like you said steve one of these problems is you get these iconic species you get a cecil the lion or you get one. You know one. Individual that pulls on heartstrings. Meanwhile there's a whole species that's being lost the as an example caribou or other species where. It's being accounted for. Because they don't have that that fairy story or that that tear jerking story that Some of these other species do so. I think the big part of it is a holistic approach in looking at long-term multigenerational. And what we need to do instead of the next four years or five years down the road and it's not about one species about all species in everything that in habitat. It's not but one tree about all trees and they can just keeps going ad nauseam rate. It's it's about the landscape and everything had habits as a whole we got formula. We just have to make it work. That's the tough part. Absolutely well on that note mike We're going to be respectful time. You took time out of your day on wednesday to come down to the steps legislature.

"Really devastating on the habitat so his we have absolutely the wrong business moral for forestry. It should not be based on volume and and you know we should know that. But unfortunately that's the system that's been in play now since the mid sixty s Longer than that. Right from day. One but volume-based harvesting is not biodiversity-friendly. Use coventry's done rolling down. Roman and i think we have to get more to a A ecological model where you go in. Select the trees much like we did up until the mid nineteen sixties any tree that was twelve twelve inches in diameter and less left standing. And you logged at once. It got big enough and You know i remember hunting on parts might trap line back in the seventies were select logging taking place. There was habitat all over the place. It was lucile place there refer their raptors out. You know you go nowadays. Hardly hear all. And i never see it. Gosh gosh hawks have been red listed for a decade or more and. I don't see them anywhere is with these all. The time i was using cushion hold traffic for in the early part of the season because the goshawks rose getting into my sets and snaring them or would kill him. So if i use these these cushion holes were rubber jawed traps. You can stick your hand in walk around all day and it would hurt by will travel So i was able to go in and get off shock and i got a gold eagle on signed up and opened. The traffic would way they go and have no harmed uneven than they've never been hurt. But i don't see that anymore there's I haven't seen eagle on the travel. I know for decades having goshawks out there. Red hawks noser characters. Those things if you're walking next made knock your hat off. Well i came in. And what two thousand and four thousand four. It was about two thousand and six last time that companies started right grade. There's a. There's a key in there that i believe you pointed out that it says objectives for wildlife objectives for water biodiversity at the stand level and it says the key is without unduly reducing the supply of timber from bc forests. So that says what the number one priority is right. It's it's not the wildlife is not the water's not the landscape. It's don't stop messing with what we can cut. And i think that is something that needs to change before we're going to actually see any meaningful change on the landscape right or all those. I call them off ramps. And it's under the force and brings flat practices in planning regulations. And i think there's a dozen soul sections that have that but you know government was supposed to have they put these objective and then they they talk about what those objectives are but they still haven't defined what regionally important wildlife are they still haven't defined some of the areas in their for their objective so for the last twenty years. We've just been been cutting without any regard for that because there's no law in place. The regulations full stiffly your to do. There's nothing punitive. When i first read through the force rate practices act I shocked you. Know as being unforced normal life i looked at this work was document because little sections that you reference there steve. Yeah absolutely. it's it's it's sad when you really dial down into what government has taken from priorities like we discussed. This is again where in the mid eighties when i was in elementary school through the coat of arms and they'd always discuss that. Bc was forestry fishing and tourism. And none of those three are are doable right now. We don't have the fish. The forests are gone and due to covid. We don't even have the tourism. Sweat is british columbia falling back on now we we haven't planned five years ahead let alone fifty years ahead. That's a good aditorial. You got something a very good point. You know worry here here we are you know. And in twenty twenty one alongs that has been in existence. What has happened over that period of time. We are close to the amd unless we make that close to the end absolutely. So yeah. it's it's it's a big drago in and it can only happen with everybody's or in the water you know unless we want to wait until it so obvious that you know we got nothing left and then somebody would say jeez. Why didn't somebody do something you know. Like why the cod fishery i. I'd like to stop it before. We get to that point so that we do have a motive of of of opportunity left to rebuild wildlife populations and all wildlife populations are are raptors are fish. Update the ferber's everything that we have out there when you look at back martin all the time. Because that's what i know. Best is fisher martin and that animal and One of the primary food sources for for martin was back bowl and the back feeds on the the fungi and the and whatnot. That grows on the bottom up blowouts of trees fall down before reston when you get rid of them and you don't have slow downs anymore. Then you don't have the back wall and maybe you're mice disappear some species of mice disappear. You know someone flourish. I guess and And i've watched was dive bombing down over the trail in front of me and picking up a mouse or picking up ole and flying off into a tree in its part was. I don't have whiskey. Jacks hardly at all left on my travelling. They used to come all the time the him yet. Come to think of it. The time i've spent up there in in your area too. Yeah you pointed out. There is no whiskey jacks normally. You're you're walking in there kind of there's a person in there following you around or the magpies they're not around. There's a predator. Sign it really. The the whiskey jax will will cache their food all summer long for the winter they lived the winter. They if they were around they would and they cast their food in the branches. The upper branches of the of the forest canopy of mature for his county. And that's what they live on all winter long big stash berries nuts and mushrooms and meat or whatever they can get in there and but once that's all cut down there's nothing left because all the the small rannells down with all might smell it or see it and but we don't have them either so.

"Trips on might see one live mu song of and all that we still got loose around but there should have been twenty. There should have been thirty light mousse hustle we get used to. It doesn't take long for people to kinda get adjusted to the dynamics everything around you thinking. Oh yeah we got loose here. We got trees out there looking at all. You know what's more talking. We've got thousands of trees out there. And i saw gross last week when i was out on that you know so people normalize today not realizing that the bar has dropped eighty percent from where it used to be and and i don't know how we can get that message out to everybody to let everybody know what it was like before and what it can be like if we spend a little bit of time and energy in lima direction. You did a great Google earth overly of the area where it showed what the habitat looks like. When did you start that it was the seventies or something and you worked your way through to the modern day and if if that was a little bit more i think that would be quite Enlightening for some people. Because you can literally see just the we'll call it old growth just disappear and it's time lapse. It's absolutely it's blowing for the for somebody who's lived up here for fifteen years like myself as as you said back then it was. Oh yeah we'd see two three four five moves in hunting trip but now here we are. It's like okay. Well we might see two or three season. And that's only in the last fifteen years it's it's disappearing and it's that death by a thousand cuts. I keep referencing in it. They keep taking it a little bit little bit little bit. It's gone before we know it and we're going well go. Yeah i remember Hunting oh my traveling back in the late set into the eighties. And you know my partner. And i would vote and Oftentimes my brother-in-law's would come so we would have. Maybe six of us going out for one week hunting trip and all six of us would have hanging within three days and then i would use everybody to clean trails and set boxes up in built rebuild the copies and stuff like that and that was the norm. We expect that to happen every year. And of course now. We've had many trips where we haven't seen a single animal. Of course we come back empty going back to the guler time lapse so that is an excellent tool. And it's you know. It commences in one thousand nine hundred four and now they include twenty twenty and you have to. I find it best. If you use google chrome and you have to register to use google earth engine and then find the time lapse video and you can stop and you can zoom in pan around and varying the speed of the time lapse. But what i've done is is on my trap. Line council force industries and some people in the industry are pushing for certainty on land by saying we want you know has all these managed for snow. And what the art is all the regals. It's coming up. Second grow but if like traveling freeze the time lapse on nineteen eighty four. And you just look at the color of the searle stages of development out there. You can pretty much figure out when things were logged we never started clearcut logging bc until nineteen sixty six and when we built all else and so he can tell when the clearcut starting and you know. There's not much in there. We started replanting in earnest in the nineteen eighties with watch. Poll find because grew the quickest and then of course the pine beetle came along and wiped out all those trees that we planted in the seventies and eighties and nineties. And we're starting from scratch and lauderdale's areas but scientists and civil cultures have found the perfect tree that Very quickly very quickly up here to a tree. That's about you know. Twelve inches in diameter paint still takes about eighty years. But i guess that's quick but it's still not enough to to provide the habitat that is necessary on that. So you can pick beto as you're looking through the time lapse video you nineteen eighty-four twenty twenty or sideway science. We can keep switching back for to see see. What's there the other part. I found a A scientific paper on aum hydrology against snow areas. That had lots of snow. And of course we've got lots of that and be here and they were they. It was twenty twelve. Study is a fairly extensive and what they were saying. The study is that takes at least eight years in interior british columbia for a forest canopy to develop enough to slow down. The snow melt in the in the spring so for eight years and particularly the first thirty or forty years. The snow is melting three to four times faster than it normally would With the forest canopy and of course atas flushing. Everything melts the streams. Get over full. They flesh all the nutrients down and put soil deposits over top of the salmon spawning areas. Wash everything we get. Massive flooding. We get landslides. We got a whole bunch of things all attributed to that and and nobody's come to their senses yet though. This study's note for ten years. Where's the pro government on this. How come nobody is own. My goodness we're we ought on live here. We got to start rebuilding our force counties to ensure clean air clean water wildlife habitats and force for a lifetime hundred lifetimes absolutely. You know it's interesting you know just being out on the land. I was just out on a bear trip to the spring. Two two weeks ago and pulled up this little lake in Visit beautiful area and it was all clear. Cut up to lake and then there was. You know fifty year old growth behind and you could. At first i was like oh that's interesting. They left all these trees which was nice. And then you get looking at it and really what was happening is fifty years ago. They logged and they left a setback to three hundred meters back of the lake. Which you know as we know having that You know there's trees around. The lake and there are setback requirements as we know with logging and so took all the second gross stuff lee left at and they cleared everything around the lakes so the lake there was three or four hundred meters and it was all just completely logged so a new company. Come in and take an thanks so and we see these violations. All the time and the interesting thing is a lot of times. My hunting part is very active. He's actually very creek right now. and he's very active in the forestry side of things too with protesting peacefully. He's he's not getting not one of the guys getting arrested but there is and he's he's reported several violations is he's he's quite knowledgeable about what's legal and what's not and of course itself self police straight. So you know. It's one thing if you have a sustainable forestry system and the forestry companies are recognizing getting and following the rules but itself itself monitoring you know there's no government oversight really is this required so there's so many violations and and it's really.

"Well what do you want to see. Absolutely and we do listen to our members and our supporters. You know a lot of times what we do. Listen to is how things so when we see something do well.

We can't say we're gonna offer next for raffle stop when we have a couple of really cool raffles coming up So keep an eye out. You're going to see them. Pretty soon and Coming down the pipe so with that. Let's go to episode thirty two We're gonna welcome bc liberal mla. mike marsh from prince. George mackenzie to the show steve Looking forward to this one's going to be a great chat absolutely if you looked up the word conservation superhero in the dictionary. You would see a picture of our friend omer from precision optics tireless donor and supporter of all things wild sheep precision optics located in british columbia truly stands alone in the alpine from optics.

You show us every step of the way buying them online at precision optics dot net or roma foods located just off highway ninety seven cornell b. c. Good afternoon mike. Welcome to the Talk is cheap. Podcast real pleasure to have you on and thanks for taking the time to meet with us this afternoon. My pleasure. this is scott excellent. Mike yeah we appreciate You know really what you've done for hunts to hunters across British mia You know your involvement in victoria is You know you've been very active down there very vocal on issues around sustainability conservation related issues and you know opportunities frost hunters as well so. It's something that you know. I really watch closely. What you're doing in the legislature. We're really grateful for what you've done. The while sheep. Society b c. We had this opportunity to present. Twenty thousand letters to the premier on on the ninth on wednesday and true to form. You showed up to speak in support of of what we're doing It always seems very consistent with yourself and also the liberal party to support were getting as hunters across the landscape here and being out there to support us all the time so it was a pleasure. Senior guys aaron impress or walks showed up in front of the legislature and It's too bad it was. We have to do. During covert time. So we've been quoted times now for a year and a half off. It'll be over one of these days soon. But i think the message was important that that be delivered in the way that it wasn't and i've got a meeting with the minister coming up towards the end of the month here so i might chit chat with her little bit of this issue as well yes. So let's i guess maybe jumping to that issue. You know a little bit. And i know mike. You're very active around. Conservation related issues forced related issues. All all these different things. But you know we haven't really talked about the issue at hand with some. It's something that is a huge concern for us and we've actually got a little bit. Of flack a wild sheep for kind of making a stand in a statement around you know that we want to hold the government to account on this issue around wildlife meant using science because we did see it back in two thousand seventeen when The grizzly bear just went away. You know one of the most heavily Studied animals In the province. There's a lot of time money and effort understanding them and the government shutdown. You know kind of on election promise. So you know i guess. Maybe it'd be great to hear from you on your perspective on your thoughts and science-based while they've management kind of this this issue we're having to deal with the boat social licensing and you know maybe hunters shouldn't be harvesting taking off the landscape not based on sustainability but based on. You know because somebody doesn't like that an animal dies in the process so if you could talk a little bit to that i appreciate it over. Wildlife has been undervalued in this province side Rates in the beginning went four streak came along. We adopted that sustainable yield strategy way back in nineteen forty five with a full focus on on wood and nothing else and i think that is that that began the over. Wildlife populations nbc. And because of that. focus. Well i don't think any government is one thousand nine hundred and five is put the required amount of money into wildlife management or into managing any of the other biodiversity values on which has led us to where we are today. We have no idea of you. Know there's we haven't had a good wildlife inventory program we haven't had a good wildlife you know if you talk to anybody they would be able to tell you how many how many martin we have. How many of any kind of critter that we have in the province here and i think that's wrong when you look at the value that each one of those animals provide to society at mt enter the environment itself. I read back when i was trapping. And and on these days. Maybe i'll be back to that again at ninety but i've got every study on for bears that has been written in the last fifty or sixty years and all of them say the same. You know. just the liberal bibliography i on hearten for an example is twelve pages long and i every single report and pay for that was written on biology. The habitat for martin. Also the same thing that they're declined. Premise deformed lack of habitat that as soon as you log. The mature denver that takes away nesting denning sites and food opportunities in the red back. All those kinds of things but yet we continue to do that. And then you look at the care who situation and just about every report that you see on. Caribou talks about the loss of habitat. And what are we doing. We're still having the trees down as still throwing the habitat da. These animals are in so we haven't learned and part of it is because we have this like i said this incomplete strategy from nineteen forty five that has morph into ideology that is taught in force you programs at the university level at the college level. So these these folks that are now in forestry in senior management positions all they know is how grown cut down trees and how to make it grow faster in the optimum size to put it through a sawmill on even though that the optimum sizes still half the size that's needed to produce inadequate canopy overhead and whatnot so to change the mindset of colleagues and to change the mindset of people in the industry has been enormous task Some days. I feel like i'm just bang my head against a brick wall but i do think you know if i look at the numbers in my own caucus i think i'm i'm probably fifty fifty. Now where rated beginning. I was probably want against everybody so it is working but it's a long painful process in its it's organizations like watch society and others that have made enough noise on the outside. That helps me lincoln to colleagues and other people in the political world. So don't take my word for oldest into these guys are gonna talk to one of these guys over there. And i think people are starting to get the same message from just every organization on the province so go long way to go but We're moving at least appreciate that. Mike so i guess that's kind of the next question. You know we complain a lot about you. Know what's happening on the landscape. Loss of habitat You know there's this whole predator issue which you know is kind of the heart of act now in some capacities because of some of the pushback. We've been getting we go from here you know. We've that was one of the things we're with together for wildlife we'd see some positive changes and And there probably is a very good positive things coming together for wildlife You know we seem to change government at change of a party so you know. Maybe there was some optimism there that we'd see but we're still having the same issue so you know kind of what we need to do. What are some of the things that we can do to improve things to to make a difference and actually start reversing because it seems to me. We're still going backwards from.

"Kerry We were talking earlier about. Well, we played that sound bite earlier, and we'll get some quality questions here. Just one sec. My chance to ask you some questions. This week. We played that sound bite earlier of Joey Votto, like just calling out the opposition and basically cracking jokes on on the ST Louis Cardinal fans bringing brooms and stuff, and then they just rolled in and handle business against the Cardinals. Have you covered anybody who's like baseball players like your Draymond green casually drop F bombs Kevin Durant to it to here to your like certain players do it is like one thing. But Joey Votto would not like Bumgarner said it or Bauer said it I'm like, Yeah, OK, that empowers actually pretty reserved in his Is a media sessions like he's not some boisterous. He doesn't act the same way it does in the field. But if Bumgarner like casually dropped an F bomb about somebody like I wouldn't I wouldn't really bad night but because it was Joey Votto and the the way that he did it, I sort of perked up. Have you covered anybody who like surprised you with a reaction like that? No one who surprised me. But I will say it's been a pleasure listening to Aaron Sanchez Post game this year before he got hurt Aaron Sanchez very loose when he's going well, that guy is a talker. When he's not going well. He's furious at himself. Swearing is cussing in the postgame presser, and it's great Camillo Deval, also this year dropped an F bomb on the on the post game presser after his first game, and that was a cool moment because he really did not know the scope of where that was headed self. I just appreciated. I appreciated the candor from from the 23 year old flame thrower. So what did he say? He said in English. Yeah. Oh, yeah. In what context? Jesus Aguilar was the first batter that can be a little dove all struck out in his baseball career in Miami giant cinnamon. For the eighth inning. He looks like he's gonna be a solution all season long and Jesus Aguilar was caught on camera screaming, Uh, you know, he screamed the F bomb after he struck out against Deval, and so someone asked Postgame presser. Hey, Camilo, did you by chance here? What Jesus, Aguilar said, and Camilo, like transition from Spanish to English immediately drops the f bomb it does. It's super loud like he's imitating him. Yeah, I was like this is awesome. I love this guy already have the best hair and the Giants love them. Yeah, that's where you're going. Great. So, Yeah, I love that. And Aaron Sanchez, Alex what? A few weeks ago, I looked like s. I felt like S. I pitch like as pretty good Like I was probably your your best, like pure quote of the season, but the guys who are loose, they keep it fun. I like the the guys will be honest about it and just sort of, say stuff like that, Because it's real. It's like how these guys actually speak to each other. So it feels more legit when they're saying it to you in the media. All right, my turn to ask you some questions. In this edition of Quality Crest questions. First question for you Carry. We're talking about the sticky substances. Baseball is going to start policing this stuff. I had an interview. Stephanie App. Steen. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Stephanie, abstain last week from Sports Illustrated did a great job there Fantastic job on this article about about the the sticky problem in baseball with the doctoring of the balls. And she said, Maybe we get to a point where managers get punished for their players doing this. If managers start getting punished for it, you'll start seeing crackdowns and clubhouses in locker rooms. What do you think the punishment should be for offenders? Once baseball starts policing it on the field? Oh, that's really tough offenders. I wouldn't go with the 10 game suspension. I'd go five. And I know that the 10 is to keep them out like a full start through the rotation. I just do five just because you're still having to play with 24 guys. So it really hurts the team. But a manager suspension where a manager suspended two games without pay. You'd really have that because managers aren't making what they did 5 10 years ago, and so they're not like the richest people in the sport anymore. Manager turnover is at an all time high. So you're having to get your money when you can. I think that if you're suspending guys, two games you're going to see this eliminated real quick. That's a great call, man. Alright, last last question here before we get to our top three or our walk one pitch one and, uh, and get to hit one which MLB reliever. Would you hand an M V P vote, too? Today today. That's really tough. That is really tough. A few weeks ago, I might have, said Blake Treinen, and they'll be reliever. Not constant. Kimbrel Kimbrel would be for the Cubs. Yeah, Craig Kimbrel, probably sub one. Er A. I don't know that he's blown any saves. He's been great this season. Craig Kimbrel, Alright, very Kimbrel's every p and they always say picture are closer of a generation for this generation, Kenley Jansen. Let's say, Look at this Kimball numbers. I know he's fallen on hard times last couple of years, but he's been filthy in his career. Also say you spiral petite just because it would be funny to see that on a baby. You just want to see it 16 patina. He's he's got 16. All right. We're gonna flip this one on its head. Normally, you get to walk one of these guys. You can pitch to one of these guys, and you can drill one of these guys. But if you drill one, he's coming out to fight. You were going to flip it. You're in the batter's box. You're facing three of the spin rate pitchers with sticky stuff on the baseball. You're going up against Garrett Coal, Trevor Bauer and Walker Buehler. All guys who have since been raised dip over the last week due to the maybe policing of the sticky substances with the Spider attack in baseball. One of them can drill you one of them. You get to hit a home run off of and one of them is going to intentionally walk you but the one who drills you you're going out. You're going to fight that guy. And you're also going to do it after he caught you in the ribs like 95. Yeah, I was gonna say so. Cole throws $100 throws 98 Bauer can run it up to 96 97. I don't think there's an optimal guy. Had to be hit by of that group. It's not like you know, we don't have Tyler Anderson out here. Why do you ask me? Do you want to fight after he welts you on the ribs? Yeah. I mean, I think I'd want to fight power. I think that that that stands out to me. I think that I'll walk against Walker Buehler, and I'll hit the home run off of Garrett cold because it's Garret Colin. He's got the reputation as the greatest pitcher. The generation 324 million. Yeah, I'd like to take him deep. Pretty good. I want you just get drilled The ribs by Bauer. Yeah. I mean the fight. The fight would not end well in my face. Would you put the swore back in after? Yeah. In the she alright, that's gonna do it. Can I have Jeff some margin? Mike Morris running onto the field with me as long as they clank heads on their way down. How poor Mike Morris Man that's going to do it for the cops and Crowley podcast will be like next week. Everybody enjoyed the baseball this weekend Giants. In Washington, D C.

Now you're shop can help you and steer you kind of through the process but at the of the day this particular time would be when an agent could step up to the plate and say. Hey wait a minute.

I mean what's the next step. If your agent will get involved then you have to go to the division of insurance and again unfortunately in the process of the division insurance. It's a long drawn out process and it can take up to twenty days for them to respond and and it's very difficult because again it actual cash value is about willing-buyer-willing-seller right right so what i'm saying is if your car is deemed a total loss of all this that we're talking about no this that there's a very good possibility even though it's sixteen pages and it looks really impressive.

"Encourage people to carpool. Which by the way they did not do. And the reason is pretty simple. If you live in a neighborhood here in Dallas Fort Worth the odds of your next door neighbor working within 20, miles of where you work is nil. Right? Right. Okay. Maybe if you're in Fort Worth in some neighborhoods, you might have 45 people in the neighborhood that all work out it Lockheed or General dynamics in the old day. So theoretically, you could all carpool the 3.8 miles from your house to go to work it, laki. But In reality. We live everywhere now, and we work everywhere else. So we built all these H O V lanes out of our money, And then they decided. Well, nobody's using them. Let's turn them into toll lanes. And that was something that went on across America. So we not only paid for it, but then they want to spare for twice. But these declarations air made at a level At the state When I sat on the maintenance deal with clean Air board in north taxes, I found out very quickly the North Texas Council government supposed to be there to resolve and improve the situation for people and North Texas, right? Only I never saw us come up with any idea to do that. Someone passed it down from Austin and they were there to implement it. You follow me, and I'm never quite sure who made those decisions. But it was above that level. It's like we had not filed our plan with the EPA for our state compliance. And so they call. May we gotta have this meeting. We need you there because we've got to do this. We're past do it was back when George Bush was governor. So I show up. Mike Morris looked at me and says, not Ed. Today. More than anything else. I need you to think outside the box on this one. Really? You're gonna tell me that right? And so what did we do? We listen his presentation from these two guys that had put together California's complaints book. And he said, this is what we need to do. Make Texas complaint. They didn't ask us any questions. They just want to say, Let's do it. So again, it's a decision made far above my pay grade, and people you think are making decisions locally or often just implementing decisions made by somebody else. However, in Stephenville, What the hell do you need An H o V lane for it's only when we come to visit and forwards. Oh, you're talking about coming to the big city Because I'm thinking an H O V Lane and Stephenville, you can walk to work there. Yeah, You'd be surprised how crowded it gets in downtown Stephenville went trough and unloads all their students. Imagine that's a true statement. I have not been to your lovely city and probably about 30 years since I went down there for a wedding and found out it was dry. No longer the case on you know something, and I haven't been back yet either. Don't have a good weekend, buddy. Thank you, sir. Bye. Yeah, Again. I have no idea where these decisions are made. But they're made it a much higher level sent down to be implemented, and I'm guessing that really is how things should work. But the problem is what might work in Austin, Texas, may not be simple works in Dallas Fort Worth for obvious reasons, or vice versa. While other things should be universally adaptable. Whoever came up with this h o v lane text press. Two. Rebuilding freeways to where they're nonfunctional. Somebody made that decision. Because nobody the knew what they were doing now. Maybe they didn't know what they were doing. And they put it in place. Anyhow, Let's go to mark and play. No. Hey, Mark. Morning. How are you, Ed? I don't know. But I'm starting to worry because everybody's asking me. Are you okay? Uh, enjoy your show. I listen to it every weekend. I'm looking to buy a small pickup. And I've never been down to three for no particular reason. Other than styling. I'm looking at the Tacoma, the Frontier and Ranger. We have a perspective on those. Yes, I do. But let's walk it through. Slowly. Okay. Okay. Yes. First thing. The all new Frontier got put off a year. Okay, But in the interim, the frontier went from being the least expensive pickup truck out there, which it was the oldest. It was most dated, right? But it had a prize about 79 95 for base price, which is fine because somebody just some people wanted a very inexpensive compact pickup truck. But it's not that price anymore. So are you playing around with having a truck or you working with it? Um, I'm retired, and it's just it would be a leader thing. I always have these projects. I drive a rogue right now. And it seems like anytime I buy some essential hardware, Earth, Home Depot or Lowe's. Don't have enough room in my car. Got it. So how often do you go?

You know, it's interesting in that. It's I've heard people mention this. Like just in talking, you know with other people that you know. Wow. Could that really happen? And sure Enough, Here's a case where Someone actually sabotaged the vaccine. So yeah, very serious matter. Yeah. I suppose. I mean, if there are people who believe What is it? G five or five? G?

What makes them different and sets them apart? Well, here's a little inspiration that take us into the holiday. It's the story of a lawyer. His name is Mike Morris, and he wanted to go big and boy did he ever Had a chance to interview Mike recently. And here is the essence of his story. In his own words, Mike. Well, I've been an attorney or 28 years, Always right here in Detroit, Born and raised in Detroit, and my dad was a successful attorney over something. I always wanted to do an early on in my life. Actually, I knew I was not to procure. I was selling gum out of my locker in middle school, and I was a very successful waiter through high school and college and even in law school. I like making money. But even more importantly, I liked finding the shortcuts go. Working in a restaurant and how to make the most sales and make the most money. And it just kind of went into my law firm, and I realized that a law firm was a business early early. It's really good mentors. I read a lot of good books, and I decided that I was going to not just treat it like every other lawyer does. I believe that everybody has to look at their entity like a true business.

Every Day, But I'm or working on top on my business looking over my business than working in my business, and it has really transformed to something unique. We exploded. And of course, we're delivering good legal services. So the clients are coming. Repeat clients. They're sending us a lot of clients. But basically I was a good lawyer and I decided to treat my business like a business and things just kind of took off for me. And there you have it. So if you want to make.
