"And we're going to start off with a little bit of a brief history of industrialization and commercialization at niagara because this whole barrel trip was part of a much bigger story of tourism and dare-devils at this natural wonder so niagara falls is a collection of three waterfalls on the border between the united states and canada ontario. On the canadian side and new york on the us side in. They're on the niagara river between lake erie. lake ontario. the falls are the horseshoe falls the american falls. And the bridal veil falls sometimes horseshoe falls is known as canadian falls. Most of the horseshoe falls on the canadian side of the border. Paul american falls and bridal veil falls are both in. The united states horseshoe. Falls is the biggest of the three. It's the one that's shaped like a horseshoe like its name suggests and it's what comes to mind for a lot of people when you say niagara falls. Yeah it's impressive in persons. It's it does have sort of the iconic aspect to it. The area around niagara falls has been home to a number of iraq orient speaking indigenous peoples leading up to the seventeenth century. A confederation known as the neutral lived on what would become the canadian side of the river. And this name comes from the french describing them as neutral in conflicts between other iroquois nations and confederation so this is a guess it pronunciation because we couldn't find a clear one but the When roaring on or winrow lived on the other side and the neutral confederation and the wind row were allies until sixteen thirty nine after that a combination of wars epidemics and other factors led to both of them being dispersed by and absorbed into other iroquois tribes and nations. There are descendants of these people. Surely living still today but there's a whole complicated history of all the various iroquois and peoples that are not a monolith so some people wound up going completely different parts of the country other sort of made their way into other tribes and nations.

This is where he would placed dozens of needles in his mouth along with thread. Poss- drink a glass of water then amazingly extract needles threaded with enough threat to cross the stage later. He performed the same illusion with razor blades. Houdini was much more than a magician however he was a man with an insatiable curiosity and was fascinated with movies made several including one where he was to rescue the ever suffering female from iraq on the brink of niagara falls.

Forever Free: Edmonia Lewis

"Hey Joel Lauren Hey so. You know what I feel like I have been I have I have not done our podcast. Justice. And the reason being is because you know every. So often we do an episode on historical person. And it seems that you do a lot of episodes about like strong influential women. And I do episodes on. Deeply White Dude's. Deeply disturbed man and I was like you know what? I'm going to remedy this today. I'm going to do it right and I had I had known very little about this person until I started doing my research, the more I learned about her the more I was. Like. Impressed about her. Just. Her talents and her very interesting life and everything. So today. I'm going to be doing an episode on Ed Monia Lewis. Yes I don't know who that is. So at Monia Lewis was the first professional and internationally known African American sculptor. Wa Yes so Her work was like well known all over the world during this time period but we'll get into it so. she was she is believed to have been born on July fourth eighteen, forty four that she didn't. She didn't know her her birthdate. Lot of people didn't warn free in Greenbush New York, which is now the city of Rent Rensselaer and her father was Afro Haitian while her mother her her name was Catherine Mike Lewis was of Mississauga, Gibb Way and African American descent. So she was both African American Haitian and native American Great. her mother was known as an excellent weaver in crafts woman while her father was a gentleman servant and her family background inspired Lewis in her later work. So, by the time she reached the age of nine. Both of her parents had died to maternal aunts adopted her and her older half brother whose name was Samuel. He was born in eighteen thirty five to lose his father and his first wife in Haiti and the family came to the United. States, when Samuel was a young child Samuel eventually became a barber at age twelve after his father died because he needed to start making money for the family and so he became a barber I know isn't as seventh grader giving you a haircut that's a nightmare but apparently. We're pulling your teeth both. Apparently. He was very good because eventually he moved out West in became an entrepreneur in a landowner and was very successful. but at the time, the children lived with their aunts near Niagara Falls for about four years and Louis in her aunt sold Agip way baskets and other items such as moccasins, embroidered blouses, tourists, visiting. Niagara. Falls, TORONTO, and Buffalo. So Little Gail. during this time Lewis went by her native American name, which was wildfire while her brother was called sunshine or sunrise, which is like these are just cool. ASS names. Great names may great names man. So in eighteen fifty, two Samuel F. for San Francisco leaving Lewis in the care of captain s mills, and Samuel provided for her board and education. Captain are mills was a an abolitionist. He was a well known abolitionists at the time. So in eighteen, fifty, six, she enrolled at New York, Central College McGraw Hill which was a baptist. School at McGraw Hill. Louis. Met many of the leading activists who would become mentors, patrons and possible subjects for her work as her artistic career developed. So during her summer term there in eighteen fifty-eight, she took classes in the primary department in preparation for college, and she was enrolled in primary courses in order to help advance her reading and writing skills along with other subjects of academia that we're not quite advanced enough for the academic department. So. In a later interview, she said that she left the school after three years having been quote declared to be wild. Oh Wow. Yeah. She said until I was twelve years old I led this wandering fishing and swimming and making moccasins I was then sent to school for three years in McGraw Hill was declared to be wild they could do nothing with me Oh Yeah. So they seem to have expected a lot from. A kid who had been grown up just like doing whatever she could to survive. So. Eight fifty nine when she was about fifteen years old her brother Samuel and abolitionists sent her to win Ohio where she attended the secondary Oberlin Academy Preparatory School for the full three year course before she entered Oberlin College, which was one of the first US higher learning institutions to admit women and people of Color. At the time, she changed her to Mary Monia Lewis and began to study art. So from here on out, she's known as Ed Monia Lewis. She boarded with Reverend John. Keep his wife from nine until she was forced from the college in eighteen sixty three. So I'll tell you about that in a second. But at Oberlin with a student population of one thousand Lewis was one of only thirty students of color. Yeah, Reverend keep was white a member of the board of trustees and avid evolutionist and a spokesperson for Co Education so throughout her life, she was kind of moved from from patron to patient as a young child mostly with abolitionist family Scott.

"In Niagara Falls, Ontario. That's in Canada. A reopened this week without stripping. They do have outdoor dining. So you know if you're one of those people goes to the strip clubs because you can't resist the good food. That strip club or the dancers were not working as servers and you can eat outdoors. Yeah, so I mean, if you're going to strip club for the food, you really gotta re prioritize your diet and your life for that matter. A feeling around the neighborhood.

Ely Parker The Commissioner of Indian Affairs

"Hello and welcome to era KOI history and legends. I'm Andrew. And I am Caleb, and welcome back to our third installment on Ellie Parker. In May of eighteen, sixty, five, ely parker returned to Washington. DC, and he and grant met with the president again. President Johnson this time Parker was still very angry about the death of Lincoln and is said to have said at a military parade. He white men are Christians, and you may forgive murder. The I'm of a race never forgives the murder of a friend which I find this quote kind of interesting because he was a Christian. He his father was a preacher, and he was a member of a of an Anglican church later in his life. So that I think it's the point is getting across that he really harbored some bitterness towards the the confederates. If you remember from our. Our last episode couple of weeks before this when Abraham Lincoln is talking to him on how he wants to help his people think Parker was really excited to have a president that actually cared about the Indians, and I think he believed honesty when he said that this must have been a you know on top of him considering Abraham Lincoln a friend, but also all of a sudden. His plans for the future for his people have just been crushed with the death of Abraham Lincoln, and we don't know what would have been head Lincoln been able to finish his second term. Lincoln definitely had some very. Questionable tactics dealing with a Western tribes during the civil war. He or some people to do some some bad stuff that being said I think that Lincoln really did have an appreciation for the the Iroquois nations, and really did want to to help them in the following months Parker remained at grant side, he helped shield him from the the masses for a word. We would use today. The Paparazzi the general was the hero of the war. He's the one that got lead to surrender. Everywhere. He went. People mobbed him. They literally had to beat people away when grant was trying to get some sleep on a train. People were breaking windows. Just try to get in and shake his hand. They said the grants hand was. Crippled because so many people wanted to shake in talk to them as they toured the North Grant, and his family came to Niagara Falls to rest and recuperate and Parker said I'll take your kids, and which is always great when somebody offers to do that, he just takes the kids and take some to the tunnel under reservation for some days to stay at his sister's house. In the fall of that year he was appointed to a commission to serve on a board to help with negotiating with a dozen or so native American nations that adjoined the confederates. We even have a chance to talk about this, but there were all these indigenous nations in the south. Many of them head slaves as well, and they were really sympathetic to the southern 'cause they were intertwined. and politically so here's a little history tidbit fact for Caleb. Do you know who the last general to surrender in the confederacy was? No idea neither did I, but I put it in the notes so I would remember. He was a Cherokee brigadier general named stand. Wadey must be the southward a little more lenient with their commissions. Yeah really, but he he commanded hundreds of troops and lead people around on a wild goose chase, refusing to surrender, even after the confederacy had surrendered, but like this is June twenty third. This is a full two or three months after a everything has wound down, it also kind of sets the stage for you know because we all know about like the the Indian wars in. In the eighteen eighties and stuff like that in the old western kind of see how a Lotta that this conflict never really ended this Cherokee general with America like eventually make some sort of peace, but you can tell it. It's GONNA be a shallow peace, and that will be trouble for the next several decades in eighteen, sixty, six one of grant's top officers colonel, bowers. was killed tragically by train, and why it's so tragic is he was a close friend of Parker in grand. You know he's one of the general. Staff and they were all on a train and grant got on the train and realized he left something back at the hotel. Something completely, not important handkerchief a book, a letter from his mom something like that. and. He just said Oh darn. I accidentally left that back there. Oh well. And bowers without saying anything to grant slipped away, and he was gonNA. Run back and grab it. Is. He was trying to be a good a good friend and a good underlying to the general in doing so he ended up. If you can picture, all these train tracks with all the trains going every which way he got trapped in between trains going different directions than he was killed crushed. So grant talks to this man a couple of minutes before, and then you know, he slips away. Grant never told him to go back and get it, and then people say a man was killed on tracks. He says Oh. That's terrible, and then it comes in that. It was his friend. It had fought with him through the whole civil war, and he was dead, just like that grant was so depressed that he told Parker that he was not going to be able to attend the funeral. Lots of people say things like that, and then the funeral date comes and guess who is there. A Grant Parker and all the staff were there for Colonel Bowers and his family

Spencer Murray Jumps Into The Podcast

"All Right Folks. Thank you and welcome back to the draws cast. I'm very excited to be with you again. I hope that you've been continuing to listen to the draws cast. We have some great interviews that we've downloaded over the last couple of weeks and have another great interview Here today with me He is the GM at the Briar Woods Country Club and a city just outside of Buffalo New York called Hamburg and his name is Spencer. Murray and Spencer and I know each other through some work that we've done together through the National Restaurant Association and we've been working on getting Spencer on the show for quite some time so Spencer Murray. Welcome to the Dr Cast. Hey thanks for having me Jeff. It's good to finally make this happened with you. I'm looking forward to to get into it with you yet. It's going to be great A previous podcast. I had a gentleman by the name of Aaron. Primo on and I called him a Whiz Kid. Because he's done quite a bit. In his years that he's been a Professional Anaconda put you into that group Not so much because your age because frankly I don't know how much or how old you are. You don't need to tell me that but I think that you've done a lot for the number of years that you've been making a living for yourself. So that's another reason why I wanted to have yon of the draws cast so So before we get your professional cry like to kind of set it up and find out a little bit of background about the people that are interview so Where did you grow up. What city specific did you grow up in? Sure so starting I'll tell you I'm thirty one so that we can get that out. Okay well then. You can be a whiz kid concerning. Yeah Yeah for me. That's a whiz kid. And I look sick. Buffalo New York in just the suburbs village called Williamsville. Just fifteen minutes outside of the city. You know. My my dad was a military guy. He was in the eighty second airborne and a he was a Jag officer as well too. So a military lawyer And my brother sister or at Fort Bragg North Carolina and then my dad moved up to buffalo to start his own private practice as an attorney so I was born here in Buffalo born and raised here and Most of my career. I spent seven years at a at a breakfast restaurant here. Most people are aware of if you've ever heard of the original Pancake House. Yeah I spent seven years as a kid started when I was first job. I worked at a P. It's a place I was fourteen years old. I made five bucks cash under the table and I they let me run the police that it was just kind of just got it at an extremely young age and learned how to deal with people then started as a dishwasher at original pancake. How listen and then throughout college and somebody's work. I Work Sides Washer. We'd orange juice plus boy creative people as host and just went through all. That was kind of my start hospitality and stuff but I love this area. I'm a diehard bills. Fan Bills Mafia. We're we're out here representing and I've lived away a couple of different places and now back. So you're part now is did you say it was the Buffalo Mafia or the bills Mafia bills? Yeah I had heard that term before. That's pretty interesting So that was going to be a question of mine if you were an a sports fan for the sports that are in the buffalo area but it sounds like it a yeah. I usually if you're from Buffalo. You're you're a big bills and the sabres kind of life around here whether we're good or bad and you say bad but we're good fans and we have a lot of fun so having been to buffalo a few times myself For those of you out there who are listening that have never been to Buffalo Niagara Falls is what would you say about twenty minutes? North of Buffalo. Was that about right? Yeah so Niagara Falls is right there. But Buffalo's got a really cool young vibe to it Especially as you get down into the city. Downtown so If they've had a really good kind of revitalization of the city over the last five six years and it's really taken this kind of artistic beautiful and just driven approach to making the city. Great you know the the food culture here is amazing. The People here are great. It's called the city good neighbors and and I love it. Here this is this is certainly western. New York is is my home and a Lotta. Yeah and it's very different Then you know people when they think of New York they think of New York City. When people think of Michigan they think of Detroit but there's so much more to the states of New York and Michigan than people realize because they just focus on that one area buffalo in western New York people. Are you say you must go to New York City all the time like seven and a half hours away from here? I can make it to Chicago in almost the same amount of time per se and I can be in West Virginian. Yeah exactly so. It's very different but I encourage. I don't work for the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce but and I'm getting no money from them for this interview but I can't tell you that it's a good place to visit if you're looking for places to go The summer or even in the wintertime. Because you you work at a country club but it also acts as a ski resort to my correct about that though so where I live. I live in a town about an hour. South of Buffalo called Eligibility York and it is awesome magical Kurowski town and there's two ski resorts that are so why I snowboard side. Love the winters play. Before this I worked I managed a restaurant in ski jump on so my busy season was winter and now the golf course. That's kind of flipped the script you know so I enjoy winter a little bit more so now but definitely work a little bit harder in the summertime now but no but we're connected I mean like I said I live in his ski town which is awesome. Actually New York has the most ski resorts I think out of any state country number wise. And it's great out here okay. That's great so now you are the GM of the Brier Country Club and we've established that you've worked at the International not the International House pancakes but the original house of pancakes. And that's kind of. Yeah and that's how you got started In your professional life How is it that you went from early management? Even though you shouldn't have been managing that original house of pancakes how did you get from there to the GM of the brier would country club? I can give you a little outline and just kinda how it went so Actually have a history degree. I played Lacrosse in college. I got a scholarship to pull les division to Ross at Franklin Pierce University I was always a history nerd. Grownups and I didn't really know what I wanted to do So my my major. I just decided to take history. I liked it. I played the cross. I thought I'd be the cool history teacher and coach at the school Had that kind of plan out but then I realized that time I kind of liked history. More a hobby rather than something. I wanted to do every day but at that point. I kind of knew I just wanted to do something involving hospitality. Entertainment an Kind of a not a shy guy and I went to small school for comparison. It just know in working in those kind of environments that the original packing house and stuff you just. I just learned how to deal with people but you had to these environments. So that's why I wanted to do so. I graduated. College became a food supervisory Internet. Six flags theme park in Springfield Massachusetts. I were a looney tunes tie and Khaki Pants and a short sleeve blue button down so you have yourself a six flags they mess and those kinds of things and I did that for a summer that I moved back home and I became assistant manager at the ritual. Pancake House at this place. You know the way you come in. It is the busiest Brecca's place all the area and it was one host which was myself still wore Khakis at that time. Couldn't get away from it. I guess And Green Pole and and everybody came in their name on a dry erase for it and that was the wait list for the thing and everybody just stare at you and here. I am this young kid and deal with all these adults different people and everybody's hungry after church. The breakfast in Hama just taught me a great deal of patients and just kind of savviness of just kind of dealing with people of all different ages and expectations

Fact that's Myth

"Welcome to kids myths and mysteries. I'm your host Kent crump in my investigation into the paranormal the metaphysical. I'm lucky net. Ghosts and poltergeists inspectors. I'm lucky psychics. And mediums and clairvoyance from the side of myth and fact yesterday we looked. Pope Joan a female pope on the point of being a myth. That could become a fact today. We're going to look at a fact. That is being regarded as remiss. We traveled from Rome to the Northwest Territories in Canada. It's a South Mahoney in Canada's Northwest Territory and is a world heritage site but it is mostly inaccessible. It missed the ICE age. It is comprised of thousands of square miles. Boreal forests never touched by man. But Hanni river is intersected by four ballets numerous canyons during the great Alaskan Gold Rush than the Hani us. The river was thought to be a shortcut to the Yukon. And that's where the story really begins in Nineteen Five. A young Indian boy emerged from the valley was several gold nuggets that he gave to a local bishop who had them made into a gold chain for his watch fact. That was all it took for. Two young men will in Frank McCloy D- to venture up in the Hani Valley Panning. The various creeks and streams that flowed into the river. They found gold at least according to a diary that was found at the site of their cabin when they hadn't returned by the following year a search party including a third brother said out and found their headless bodies tied to a couple of spruce trees upside down. More fact this was the beginning of the Grizz legend that became headless or deadman's valley from nine hundred ninety six when the bodies were found to nineteen sixty over. Fifty prospectors entered headless valley in search of the MIC. Lloyd's Gold Mine and some vanished and others were found headless more fact headless valley was an area never touched by the great ice age. It is said to be heated by underground thermals than Hani itself passes between thousand foot cliff. Walls areas of the valley are believed to have been a refuge for the woolly. Mammoth a strange bear dog. Like creature called Awadhi La along the cliffs lived Naja Naja Indians that unlike the donets simply vanished so remote as an Hani Bali that fewer than a dozen men have visited this area enter Albert faily born in eighteen eighty eight Minnesota by the age of twenty three. He was running a hundred mile trap. Line along the layered river one of the tributaries leading into the Hani. This was nineteen eleven just six years. After the McCloy brothers headless bodies had been found after decades wondering along the layered. Hani working trap lines as body was no longer up to the task in the mid nineteen fifties s and in his late sixties. Albert failure decided to go after the mkx. Lloyd's Lost Gold Mine. He was a longtime resident of Fort Simpson. And once the ice had left the rivers he would set out in a twenty foot. John Book loaded with supplies for the five hundred mile trip. They would take him to the mouth of what was referred to as headless valley or headless creek the site where the headless bodies of the mkx. Lloyd's had been found all those years ago. Besides the daunting mileage. He portage round. Virginia falls twice the height of Niagara. Falls a task. That would take him a week just to move his supplies. Once above the falls he would build a second boat and continue up the Hani one year. His goal was capsized in rough weather and he almost drowned another trip. Winter set in early while living in a hastily constructed cabin he had gotten scurvy and pulled out several loose teeth with pliers year after year trip after trip. He come up short and half to turn back by nine hundred sixty two. At the age of seventy four. He was still making the trip communist close to forty miles to the McCloy mine. Once confronted by another resident of Fort Simpson. He was asked if he was going to try again. Now remember seventy four. He answered that he would be dead or drown before he would quit on a personal note. I I learned of Albert faily and a headless valley. Forty-eight probably fifty years ago now when he was still making the trip I was in high school. An eighteen minute documentary was made in nineteen sixty two about Albert failure. You can now watch on Youtube. It's an amazing story about an amazing man and this is like a lost world. This is up fact. Pack story yet. A lot of people consider it miss miss about the Naja what happened. These Indians myth about gold mine of the MIC Lloyd's so a fact based story that's regarded as missed and at some point. Someone will find the mine and it will become

The Man From Beyond Nearly Killed Harry Houdini

"Harry Houdini. Now the story starts at Niagara Falls. So that's where we'll begin. Most people relate Niagara Falls with the image of someone going over in a barrel. I will take a look at the fall and a flow of water of over three thousand one hundred sixty tons as per second. The word formidable fits the first person to go over. The false was anti Edison Taylor sixty three year old schoolteacher who took took the plunge in an oak pickle barrel five feet long three feet around the year was nineteen o one. The entire event from climbing into the barrel to climbing now took twenty minutes. She died April Twenty Ninth Nineteen Twenty one now. Remember that date magician. Harry Houdini Love I. Love Niagara Falls. Visited them numerous times with his wife. Beth he told her that he was drawn to the false by their sheer power. Houdini Cop Film Own Bug in eighteen ninety nine and nineteen one the same year. That Annie Edson Taylor made her plunge over the falls he made. They dispersed movie. His second film was a Hollywood feature film the grim game and came out in nineteen nineteen. It was successful enough that he went on to make the third film. The man from beyond most exciting action took place at Niagara Falls was filmed the same day as the passing of an Edison. Taylor who was the first to go over the falls in a barrel Harry.

Now, she she has the same sentiment is a lot of people. I bet you we're going to have an influx of people buying homes in Florida from the mid west could very well be. I mean, you know, when temperatures go to you know, forty five below zero with wind chill in Chicago yesterday. And I we should put it up on the Facebook page because it was amazing to watch. They actually lit the entire rail system on fire. Because with the railway because what happens is when it gets that cold the tracks break, they split apart. They break trains can't run. So they let all the tracks on fire. That's amazing. She trains going over the flames. It's like, wow. It's pretty cool. I never really they could do that. But it makes sense that that's the only thing they can do. I never thought about the real all I ever thought. All I thought about I saw that with who was the poor son of a gun who had to go out there and put like whatever it is charcoal or whatever it is. Fluid. It stays lit. So it looks like it's like clumps charcoal were put in various spots. It's kind of awesome. It really is. And you know, once you hit you hit a part of the rail system it just spreads. So it's like in various sections. It's like, you know, every fifty feet they have a charcoal and in various areas are lit. It's pretty cool watch. Wow. Niagara Falls freezing come on. Yeah. That happened a couple of weeks ago. Yeah. Why I would love to see that. I know came and Niagara Falls freezing. I'd love to see it. And they get right back in the car. Actually, I'd probably look at it from the car with a camera. Like, okay, I'll stay inside. In the meantime, jumping over to the swamp for a second thought. This was interesting Senator Lindsey Graham is demanding the FBI justify tactics that use to arrest. Roger stone down here in south Florida last week. You look at it. And you might say, and you you hit it right on the head Bill. It was like the rating El Chapo south. It was insane. Come on. It's an older, man. Where do you think he's going number one? And now that he's out and talking and Boise talking getting the what is it legal fund dot com? Whatever that thing is out there. He said they made as it was called that morning. If you remember last week, it was oh, it was the made his wife who's deaf standout inner like night robe outside for three and a half hours. Are you kidding me freezing freaked out they couldn't put her in a car or take her to a neighbor's home or actually sitter in a spot in her own home? And just say, you know, stay here while we look through the house. What are they doing searching the home? Yeah. I guess what the hell did they think they were gonna fight? Oh, but CNN's news crew arrived. Right. When the FBI agents did good journalism. No. You were tipped off. Yeah. Like you park at the FBI office, and you wait. But the I mean combined they went in. Into the swat tear onto telling you, you might have thought it was Butch Cassidy and the dates kid getting ready to barricade themselves inside the home with you know, their entire posse. It was like what are you people doing? This is ridiculous. The guy inner always wife. Geez. It's it's scary. How they handled it. Oh, you're not kidding. Yeah. It was it was like, you know, the Gestapo coming in there. Yeah. I think it was purely because James Comey get fired by the president. And Roger stone's, you know, close to the president. Therefore, you know, what we're going to treat them like dirt all of the the whole the whole investigation is get back. It's all this is a witch hunt and can get back. I am I getting back at this. And then going off track is staying, you know, they put that little committee together to solve the border situation in the government shutdown. They met for an hour yesterday. And then they recessed they're gone too like Monday, like, okay, the government ends February fifteenth folks, if you think you're gonna get paid it's not going to happen because they can't even sit for more than five minutes. He's people. They're just useless. Absolutely empty, suits. It's like what are you doing in a real? Yeah. Really, you know. And it's like, you're you're remain. You were told to be there to make sure that this gets taken care of right? And you meet for an hour, and then you recess and then you're not going to meet again 'til Monday. Because you've got to go home. Get three separate caravans of thousands each head to the board. No crisis. Let's break for lunch. And then go home. I was shocked. I was like the only met for an hour. Would they do fight for that? Our probably useless it. They got nothing nothing done. So and that's your tax dollars at work. That's what people don't ever. Did. You see Ben Crenshaw yesterday. He and to Democrats actually put together a Bill that says if the government shuts down and see if they'll get a pass. But if the government shuts down after the fifteenth, the president the vice president, I'll senators all representatives, don't get a paycheck. They shouldn't. Why should they why in the world should they? Well, I hope it passes overwhelming, actually, so it'd be nice to see I agree and this came out, and we do this right now. Because if you're up about driving around listening to us, you're an early riser your go getter. You're a you're a type a personality or an alpha dog you get a crappy. Just like us up at two in the morning. You get up that early. You are happier. That people who stay up late who the hell they talked to. You're not supposed to doubt science. That's what they say. You know, I they referring to people who get up at like five thirty six as being early. Did they give they didn't give a time limit? The average time was four in the morning for your alarm to go off. They say those people are happier. Yes. Then the night owls because the night owls again, this is in the journal today. What do they know you're at a higher risk of depression and schizophrenia, stay up too late. Why is you're up late watching these horrific late night comedy shows. We have just so true. I agree with you that would be enough to put anybody into. And if you watch cold air, your at absolute nutcase. And you're not happy. I agree. I agree with you wholeheartedly. I don't know. It's it's it's cool being up early.

Check out the confident wallet a personal finance podcast series by T. Rowe price and the Washington Post brand studio find it wherever you get your podcasts. Hey history lovers. I'm Mike Rosen walled with retro pod. A show about the past rediscovered. If you go to Niagara Falls in the winter, you might witness something remarkable, the violent torrents at the base will seem to disappear the spot where the freezing cold water of the falls crashes into the rocks below will free solid, and then comes the remarkable part giant ice floes will form there. And sometimes if you're lucky enough ice will build up to connect United States to Canada, if you have seen this you have seen the Niagara Falls by speech at one time in history. People would hang out on the ice bridge play on it. And even walk along it to cross the border between the two countries it connects these days, though, people don't set foot on the ice bridge anymore. The Niagara ice bridge used to be a busy destination in winter in the eighteen eighty s children would ride sleds there in the shadow of the gushing falls entrepreneur soul, food and drinks from makeshift concession stands to the tourists rolling back and forth between the United States in Canada. One guy described as a sharp rogue in the Niagara Falls gazette built a shanty in the middle of the massive bridge right on the border between the two countries technically no laws apply there. And he took advantage of this technicality to sell liquor from his hut. But one afternoon the festivities on the flows, crumbled. It was February fourth nineteen twelve about three dozen people were on the bridge when suddenly a giant block of ice fell onto the breech allowed cracking noise. Could mean only one thing the flows were breaking apart. According to an account from the buffalo evening news, most people quickly scrambled off the bridge to land softly on either side, but Eldridge and Clara Stanton, a married. Couple. In a pair of seventeen year old friend, Burrell hickok and Ignatius Roth found themselves caught on a large chunk of ice headed rapidly downstream towards dangerous Rapids and the Niagara whirlpool. Not good Rothen hickok decided to make a leap for their lives. Roth made it to shore in a condition described as more dead than alive, but hearing a scream from Clara Stanton hickok turned back to help the panic couple. He missed his chance and the three hurdled closer to disaster spectators gathered to watch from above the ice broke apart again. Separating hickok from the Stanton's a group of quick thinking repairman who were among the spectators launched a rescue plan. They ran a rope over the side of the bridge and dangled it for hickok to catch as he came closer. In a burst of strength, Hitchcock grasped, hold of the line and the crowd cheered as the workers began hoisting him from one hundred and sixty feet above then the cheers gateway to hor about halfway to safety Hickox grip gave out and he crashed back to the ice below hickok struggled to get to his feet, but a moment later the ice floe lip Dover. And he was gone. Meanwhile, the Stanton's clung together as they're ice floe headed toward the Rapids. The buffalo evening news accounts said that upon realizing their fate Mr. Stanton put his coat around his wife and Ling melt together in prayer before the ice flipped then they disappeared in the river's current. None of the bodies were ever recovered. The Niagara Falls ice bridge was closed to visitors the following day. I'm Mike Rosen walled. Thanks for listening.
