Hear 75-Year-old Jeannie Rice's Inspiring Journey to Marathon Success
"To the show Jeannie. It's so nice to have you here. Well thank you for having me. Jeannie I read your story in runner's world so I really was excited to have you agreed to come on the show. So how did you get started in running? It's a long story but I'm gonna make it short. Like 41 years ago, it's going on 41 years already I've been running, I made a trip to my hometown Seoul, Korea and I came home a few extra pounds. I would say five six pounds because I was just traveling and visiting family and you know even every day it's like a feast right? So I am a short person I'm only 5 '1 and the five six pounds was a little I felt like I was a little chubby so I started jogging around the blocks and then I got hooked and I decided that I am pretty good at it running before you know it and I was in a five mile race in local race and then I did very well at the time I was 35 years old and I was a brand new runner I just starting to jog a couple three months and I came in fourth in my age division it was a big race actually so I thought oh if I train I guess I can run faster so that's how I got hooked so a year later I did math on 1984 1983 I start running 1984 I did my first marathon and six months later first marathon was 345 and then six months later I did 316 which qualified for Boston at the time I was only 36 years old so I did go to Boston 1985 that was my first marathon and I got hooked so I've been running since then and my children were already older a lot of people a lot of girls I would say when they start younger age we know they get married they get you know have a children's they take some time off between their pregnancy or whatever but I was already I had two boys already they were already older so I just never stopped as I've been running 41 years straight Wow and your time hasn't really changed now has it because I looked at some of your times yes you know it's interesting um a lot of people my competitor now and they used to be some of them I mean one you know particular lady and from London she was Olympian years ago she was her best time is like a 240 something but now she's running my pace 330 ish but I never was there faster so I haven't slow down much let's I'll put it that way my first marathon was a 345 and then I got better to 310 but I never went under three hour so now I slow down a little bit 1015 minutes 40 years later I'm still running 330 math that's so incredible

"Bricks and mortar strategy right now? So we've opened 11 stores in the last 12 months so we have We have 15 stores total now. I thought retail was dead. Yeah it is certainly not for us. Our stores are all profitable. The payback period has been incredibly quick on these stores and what they do for us in a market, we can measure the e -comm impact and the awareness impact when we open a new store. So I think it's getting more competitive though. Every brand is trying to open retail so there was kind of a window of opportunity. I think that window is starting to close. Also what's happening macroeconomically, that may shift over time, but online.
A Young Fire Spouse's Journey With Her Husband's Cancer Diagnosis
"A few episodes back we sat down with Diane Carter and she shared her story of her husband's line of duty, panther diagnosis, and her relentless pursuit of making turnouts safe and just exploring PFAS and all that fun stuff about exposure in the workplace. If you haven't listened to that podcast, we definitely recommend it. And today we actually have another first responder spouse, Brittany San Pedro with us to share her story about her husband's line of duty cancer diagnosis. Brittany, welcome. Thank you for having me. Brittany San Pedro is a speech therapist assistant, wife to a firefighter and a mom. She has been with her husband for 10 years and has an 18 month old and another one on the way. In late October of 2019, Brittany's husband at the age of 30 and 10 years into his career noticed a small lump on his collarbone. After several tests, he was diagnosed with stage two Hodgkin's lymphoma. He was the first line of duty cancer diagnosis in the history of Greeley fire department. Since then, many changes to screening and early detection have been made as a department. As a result, several malignant polyps, skin samples and ultrasound readings have potentially saved the lives of other firefighters within the department. Today, Brittany is sharing her story to help anyone who may feel alone or scared, especially after a health diagnosis. She also wants to encourage change and promote the importance of regular screenings and early detection. Okay. So tell us your story a little bit, the whole thing. We want to hear it. My husband came home one day and just kind of mentioned like, Hey, I got out of the shower at work and I just noticed I had a bump on my collarbone. And he's like, you know, I haven't had my yearly physical. I'm going to go in, have it checked out. And you know, none of us, we weren't really worried. And we were just kind of like, okay, he has a bump. We're going to go check it out. And his general practitioner ran blood work and then started him on antibiotics thinking it was just an infection. His body was fighting something and blood work came back fine. It didn't go down with the antibiotics. At that point, they did an X -ray. Everything looked fine. The blood work looks fine. And his general practitioner asked him what he did for a living. And you know, you fill out that survey, you tell him what you do. And he's like, you know what? We're going to, we're going to keep going. We're going to keep looking. If you're fine with that. You're a firefighter. It just makes me sit better if I, if I keep digging a little bit. And he kept going in for appointments. He then got an ultrasound done. After the ultrasound, he scheduled an appointment for a biopsy to have it looked at. And at this point we hadn't even heard the word cancer yet. I at the time was a special education teacher at a school across the street from the hospital where he was having the biopsy done. He texted me and let me know he was going in. He was super nervous. I let my co -teacher know, Hey, my husband doesn't usually have his feelings out like that. And lets me know that he's there. He's like, that's fine. Go. I ran across the street and he went back. Everything was fine. He came back out and then he just had this look on his face that I'll never forget his eyes started welling up with tears. And I guess the doctor who performed the doctor tech who performed the biopsy, you know, before his doctor had a chance to say anything told him, yeah, this is pretty typical for lymphoma. And both of us were just kind of like, what is happening? What's going on? We were hit by a bus. We didn't even know that this is something that they were looking for. And we called our closest friends, our little mini fire family. And we were like, Hey, we need support tonight. And in a minute, everybody was together at one of our friends house and everybody was just talking trash about the guy who stepped out of his scope of practice and said some things he maybe shouldn't have. And we were like, it's not going to happen. He's too young. He's healthy. There's no way. So a couple of days went by, we got a phone call saying that the doctor wanted us to come in, even though it was his day off and usually not a great sign. So we were a little nervous going in. And then when we sat down, he let us know that they, they did find it to be Hodgkin's lymphoma and that they needed to start figuring out what stage he was at coming up with a plan, trying to figure out everything. And we were both strong until they asked us, you know, are you guys, you guys are young. You guys just got married, just bought a house. Like you, are you guys wanting to start a family at some point? And I just started bawling because I already knew what was coming. And he said, I recommend that you reach out to a fertility specialist, if that's something that you would want to do. And you start reaching out to all your resources. And we did, after that, he started chemo in like less than a week. It was probably like four or five days. And he had chemo, he had it on Christmas. He had it, like he started in November, had it for about six months and then took a little bit of a break and then started radiation. And then after he went through radiation, his end date was March 14th, 2020. And then right after that, the next day the world shut down, but it was just, you know, for us, it was just amazing because he never, we never went to an appointment alone. It was just such a somber time. We were just had this dark cloud of stress and not knowing and anything. And at the same time when it was so dark, such a beautiful thing, because we had the department bringing rigs and down we packed that cancer center and, you know, we had some of his best friends, like his best man and another Lieutenant was there at every single one of his chemo appointments. And, you know, everybody kind of band together for him. It was kind of, it was a beautiful thing to see everybody supporting each other and making sure that he was never alone. You know, the Terry Farrell Fund reached out right away. You know, they did a cut it for cancer for him. It was just something that they hadn't ever experienced before at the, this department. And we were, we were just kind of overwhelmed with all the support that we had,

Aunt Retells the Tragic Story of J6 Defendant Matthew Perna
"Rest of your holiday weekend and please enjoy the show. Well if you listen to my show before I don't know if you just tuned in or when you tuned in but I was telling a story about these new January 6 videos which now clearly tell an entirely different side of the story I said a lot of stuff happened on that day we've talked about it candidly fairly on this show for a very long time what bothers me is the left was looking to hide an entirely different side of what happened that day not us it was them doing because they don't want you to see the entire story they want you to see what just died and one of the stories is about a really tragic case of a gentleman named Matthew Perna and here to discuss that is a good friend and a real warrior his aunt Jerry thanks a lot for taking the time we really appreciate you coming on today thank you for having me on well we met through police tapes this movie we did and I remember seeing you on the Dinesh had sent me kind of a screener rough cut of the movie and I'm watching you talk about Matthew and what happened to Matthew and my wife I looked over and she couldn't take it neither could I it was such a horrible story if you could tell the audience what happened with Matthew let's and yeah just just tell them what happened your your version of it is really kind of tough to listen to but everyone needs to hear it well Matt went to the Capitol on January 6th he thought going he to was be part of a celebration that day the crowd was big and he got you know into the crowd and it was announced that Mike Pence had certified the election results it wasn't exactly what what he had planned and as the crowd moved forward they went to the Capitol and he was in a huge crowd of people people and he did go in he went inside a door that had been previously opened he walked around inside the building filming from his phone and he walked out he went back to his hotel he made a live Facebook video talking about the day the video is still visible on our website he was very calm and cool just talking about the day and he he made a comment that he said Mike Pence proved himself to be a traitor today and he said but don't worry don't worry this isn't over yet and that was basically the way he said it and about a week or so later I'm sitting on my couch in Florida maps up in Pennsylvania and I saw a post Facebook that said the FBI had posted pictures of people from January 6 so I clicked on the link and I was scrolling through the photos and lo and behold there's Matt's picture and I was speechless I didn't know what to do so I called one of my brothers up in Pennsylvania and I said you need to go to Matt's house first thing in the morning his picture is on the FBI website so six o 'clock in the morning warning my brother shows up at Matt's house and Matt already knew that his picture was there and he and he had contacted a retired police officer and asked him what he should do he told him to call the local office saw the FBI in Newcastle Pennsylvania so at nine o 'clock in the morning that's exactly what Matt did and Matt seriously thought this was all a huge misunderstanding he just needed to explain that he didn't hurt anybody he didn't break anything and he thought this would be resolved and so the FBI came out to talk to him and I had a couple of my brothers there present as witnesses and they listened to Matt's story and they made it seem like yeah I was just a misunderstanding and they left and Matt called me and I said you know I don't like the sound of this I said I'm coming home so I a got on plane and I flew home that week and I said we need to get you a lawyer and we did we got him a lo lawyer and and behold the FBI showed up and arrested Matt that week while I was there and they took him in and they processed him and they may let him go he was not placed in custody he was told he had to report to somebody if he were to leave the was charged with four misdemeanors the regular ones the rating disorderly and conduct and we met with his attorney his attorney said oh this is nothing this is just a slap on the wrist you've never been arrested for anything before don't worry about it I've got this well then they slapped 220 of the J sixers with the felony charge of obstruction of an official proceeding and that's when it got serious but his attorney was still saying don't worry this is this is nothing so somebody sent me video that they had of matt outside of the capitol at 2 55 in the afternoon and I says well that's almost 45 minutes after congress adjourned you hadn't even gone inside yet he said no so I thought well there's your evidence right there it's right there on video you didn't go inside you didn't obstruct anything so I sent it to his attorney and his attorney said it nope doesn't matter they said he was there so it was an obstruction and and that video isn't going to help so this was a start of a nightmare a nightmare watching matt worry and deteriorate because the newspaper facebook social media everybody was brutal they were showing the video from january six that everybody has seen countless times and calling it an insurrection and matt's community turned against him his business which he ran through social media was taken away from him all of the accounts were he disabled and didn't want to leave his house anymore and he would have meetings with his attorney that were you would have to go into the attorney's office and they would meet with the judge via zoom because of the whole covid mess and they would cancel those meetings at the very last minute every and postpone them and it would just wear on him because he would prepare himself mentally what he was going to say and they would say up it's been canceled and this went on for quite some time and um that was deteriorating something awful he no longer ran he was a runner he gave away his television because he couldn't stand to see the news anymore with his picture on his dad was who is my oldest brother has parkinson's disease and it was affecting him something awful and matt felt very guilty about the effect it had on his dad and as the year was coming to a close it was almost christmas matt had lost a ton of wait he was vomiting blood at this point and he told his attorney just i just need this to be over what's the best way for this to be over his attorney said plead guilty you're looking at six to twelve months in a federal prison camp minimum security and matt says okay what then i'll that's do and matt was going to he told me i'll turn it into a positive he said i'll teach my fellow inmates help them get their geds i'll work on another degree for myself at the time matt was very intelligent and very giving so that was settled and the hearing was scheduled for march the third and a week before the hearing matt called his attorney and he said i just have a bad feeling it's just a counseling came over me so that's the day my mother died march the third his attorney says well matt i have bad case they've postponed your your hearing again to april fool's day and the prosecution is looking to add a sentencing enhancement of terrorism and this could have taken matt's sentence to nine years in jail matt called me on the phone sobbing that day uncontrollably sobbing sobbing i could not hardly understand him he kept telling me he he loved me kept apologizing to me for losing all of my friends because i lost every friend i almost almost everyone i ever had over this and i told him don't worry we're going to get through this together don't worry god's not going to let you go to jail

Successful People Don't Get Stuck on Failure
"Second year in my business, second year, not first year, not first month, second year in business, my phone didn't ring for two weeks. And a lot of people were saying, what are you going to do? I mean, you know, how are you going to make this work? Your phone's not ringing. What are you going to do? I could have easily quit. I could have easily tapped out right there. And then a few years later, I didn't tap out. It's gradually started growing. And my sixth year in business, I was applying for a building loan because we had plans to build a new building to get out of the garage that we had built the second year in business. And I went to five banks, five banks. They said, no way, no way, no way, no way, no way. And I could have easily thrown in the towel, tapped out right there. But I didn't. The sixth, the bank said, yes. And we were in business. I mean, we were building a building. And I got, you know, I got all the walls built on that building and I hired a contractor and we had to do a lot of, remove a lot of trees and do all the foundational work and all that kind of stuff. But they were putting the walls up and got all four walls up and they didn't have them supported well. And one Saturday they collapsed. Yeah, that's, a lot of people would have thrown in a towel right there because it's just, I don't give up easily. The contractor, it was his fault. He didn't have them supported properly. He fixed it, ended up building the building, blah, blah, blah. So you know, things happen. The list, my list of obstacles and failures go on and on and on and on and on. And successful people, they don't get stuck on failure. Failure is just part of the process to succeeding. And that's what you got to know.

Recovering Food Addict Colleen Y. Shares the Ups and Downs of Her Journey
"On the podcast, our guest is a recovered food addict, Colleen Y. Welcome Colleen. Colleen Y. Thank you. It's a pleasure to be here. Susan Branscombe Yeah, it's great. I heard about your story. I've read about your story and I'm looking forward to sharing it with our listeners. We're going to talk about your story and how you found recovery from food addiction. I understand you became abstinent at 55 years old in 2018 when you joined a 12 -step food recovery program. Talk about that and what brought you into recovery. Colleen Y. Yes, it was late getting into. I had never heard of any 12 -step recovery programs. I had never heard about food addiction. I was just a person who thought I had a moral issue that I needed to diet, that I didn't have willpower, that that was the only way that I could overcome the excess weight. I was getting up there. I was 250. I was up to 300 pounds when I finally went into the rooms. So up until that point, I just thought that I just had no willpower. But it got to the point where all I could do was think about the food. I could not function unless I was thinking about food. So that's what brought me into the rooms. Talk about you got into recovery when you realized that you needed help in this way. And then you relapsed after two months. What happened there? Well, actually, it was after five years. I was in the program for five years. So for the first two years following the program, I was good. I followed it. I lost weight. I was working the steps in the program. But then I thought I didn't need it anymore, that I knew what I was doing and slowly started deviating from the program to the point where I left it and just started doing diets again and the weight started creeping back on. But I was still not eating the sugar flower wheat. So that's what I considered as still being abstinent. But the weight came on. I was still eating high fat. And then finally, after five years, I just couldn't white knuckle the diets anymore. And I relapsed. And in that two months that I relapsed, I gained over 25 pounds and really came to believe that I had a serious problem with food addiction. I just could not function at all over that two months. And I just did not want to live anymore. I just did not want to wake up in the morning. It was a brutal experience for two months. For critical level food addicts, some of us can get suicidal, where we just can't see a way out and that we're always going to suffer from this and food controls our lives. Yeah, I prayed every night that I wouldn't wake up in the morning. And that was the thing. And then I'd be so devastated that I had another day in this disease and that somehow I had to function. So talk about this history then. You got into recovery, five years, doing well, lost weight. Then you relapsed. Tell me about the weight that went off and came back on. You said you gained 25 pounds. You got up to 300, but were you close to maintenance weight during that five years? I had never been a normal weight my entire life, never. So I got close. I had lost, by this point I started at 300, so I was probably down to 170, which was just absolutely new territory for me. Then I gained some weight back, but then I knew I could not get abstinent on my own. It didn't matter what I did, I could not keep it. So I tried to go to Renasant and Renasant was running an outpatient program and I signed up for that. And then just before they were going to run it, they contacted me and said that they weren't prepared to run it anymore. And I was devastated. I ended up getting in touch with Dr. Vera Tarmon, who is a director at Renasant, and she told me about, in fact, was going to run their intensive for their students. And Esther usually does it in Iceland, but this time she was actually doing it in Ontario where I'm from. So it's like three hours away from me, I had this opportunity. So I jumped at it and I went and did that intensive where Esther Helga had Amanda from Shift come in and run the intensive. And it was mind -altering. It changed everything about the way that I looked at food addiction, totally, totally opened my eyes.
If You're a Marxist, You Cannot Be a Practicing Jew
"I just saw a report where Bernie Sanders is demanding that any aid to Israel will be conditioned on basically destroying Israel and in in that that report they said Bernie Sanders is Jewish. Jenny Raskin is quoted all over the place and Jenny Raskin as well as another cabal of Marxists in the house who are Jewish are demanding that Israel unilaterally cease firing a guy by the name of Noam Chomsky In my view as a Marxist he helped form one of these Jewish groups that you see on the Capitol month or so ago and so forth and they're Jewish by birth but they're not Jewish in any other way. If a guy called Thomas Friedman at the New York Times I'm going to talk a little bit more about him here who writes these unhinged columns When he writes them about Israel they all have the same thread. It's repetitive. It's almost illiterate. Yet he gets these Pulitzer Prizes. That the state of Israel shouldn't exist as it exists now that if you like anybody but radicals to that government then the governments are legitimate and should be overthrown and on and on and on. The same Thomas Friedman who was going to go If you're a Marxist or if you embrace Marxism in one in certain form or another. You cannot And Marx writes about violent revolutions. know their revolutions. the status quo. Most Marxists are also anti -Semites. He might say but some of them are Jews. I mean, Mark, you just talked about Bernie Sanders. Bernie Sanders is one of the leading Israel haters in our country. Noam Chomsky on the destruction of Israel. Jamie Raskin's father Marcus was very close to the old Soviet Union and I would argue he was a communist.

Shocking Video Reveals Hidden Truth of January 6th Incident
"Dan Bongino. Well, if you listen to my show before, I don't know if you just tuned in when you tuned in. But I was telling a story about these these new January six videos, which now clearly tell an entirely different side of the story. I said a lot of stuff happened on that day. We've talked about it fairly candidly on this show for a very long time. What bothers me is the left was looking to hide an entirely different side of what happened that day. Not us. It was them doing that. It's because they don't want you to see the entire story. They want you to see what just happened on one side. And one of the stories is about a really tragic case of a gentleman named Matthew Perna. And here to discuss that is a good friend and real warrior, his aunt, Jerry Perna. Jerry, thanks a lot for taking the time. We really appreciate you coming different on story. Well, thank you for having me on. Well, we met through Xtapes, this movie we did. And I remember seeing you on the, Dinesh had sent me kind of a screener rough cut of the movie. And I'm watching you talk about Matthew and what happened to Matthew my and wife. I looked over and she couldn't take it. Neither could I. It was such a horrible story. If you could tell the audience what happened with Matthew and just tell them what happened, your, your version of it is really kind of tough to listen to, but everyone needs to hear. Well, Matt went the to Capitol on January 6th. He thought he was going to be part of a celebration that day. The crowd was was big and he got into the crowd and it was announced that Mike Pence had certified the election results. It wasn't exactly what he had planned. And as the crowd moved forward, they the went to Capitol and he was in a huge crowd of people and he did go in. He went inside a had door been that previously had opened. He walked around inside the building filming from his phone and he walked out. He went back to his hotel. He made a live Facebook video talking about the day. The video is still visible on our website. He was very calm and cool just talking about the day. He made a comment that he said Mike Pence proved himself to be a traitor today. And he said, but don't worry. Don't worry. This isn't over yet. And basically the way he said it. And about a week or so later, I'm sitting on my couch in Florida. That's up in Pennsylvania. And I saw Facebook posts that said the FBI had posted pictures of people from January 6th. So I clicked on the link and I was scrolling through the photos. lo And and behold, there's Matt's picture. And I was speechless. I didn't know what to do. So I called I called one of my brothers up in Pennsylvania and I said, you need to go to Matt's house first thing in the morning. His picture is on the FBI website. So six o 'clock in the morning, my brother shows up at Matt's house and Matt already that knew his picture was there. And he had contacted a retired police officer and asked him what he should do. And he told him to call the local office of the FBI in Newcastle, Pennsylvania. So at nine o 'clock in the morning. That's exactly what Matt did. And Matt seriously thought this was all a huge understanding. He just needed to explain that he didn't hurt anybody. He didn't break anything. And he thought this would be resolved. And so the FBI came out to talk to him and I had a couple of my brothers there present as witnesses. And they listened to Matt's story and they made it seem like, yeah, it was just a misunderstanding. And they left and Matt called me and I said, you know, I don't like sound the of this. I said, I'm coming home. So I got on a plane and I flew home that week. I said, we need to get you a lawyer. And we did. We got him a lawyer and lo and behold, the FBI showed up and arrested Matt that week while I was there. And they took him in and they processed him and then they let him go. He was not placed in custody. He was told he had to report to somebody if he were to leave the area. And, um, and he was charged with form for misdemeanors, the regular ones, the parading and disorderly conduct. And, um, we met with his attorney. His attorney said, Oh, this is nothing. This is just a slap on the list. You've never been arrested for anything before. Don't worry about it. I've got this. Well, then they slapped 220 of the J fixers with the felony charge of obstruction of an official proceeding. And that's when it got serious. But attorney his was still saying, don't worry. This is, this is nothing. So somebody sent me video that they had of Matt outside of the Capitol at two 55 in the afternoon. says, And I well, that's almost 45 minutes after Congress adjourned. You hadn't even gone inside yet. And so I thought, well, there's your evidence right there. It's right there on video. You didn't go inside. You didn't obstruct anything. So I sent it to his attorney and attorney said, Nope, it doesn't matter. They said he was there. So it was an obstruction and that video isn't going to help. So this was a start of nightmare. a A nightmare watching Matt worry and deteriorate because the newspaper, Facebook, social media, everybody was brutal. They were showing the video from January six that everybody has seen countless times and calling it an insurrection. And that's community turned against him. Um, his business, which he ran through social media, um, was taken away from him. All of his accounts were disabled and it was house anymore. And he would have meetings with his attorney that were, he would have to go into the attorney's office and they they would meet with the judge via zoom because of the whole COVID mess. And they would cancel those meetings at the very last minute, every single time and postpone them. And it would just wear in him. Cause he would prepare himself mentally what he was going to say. And they would say, Oh, it's been canceled. And this went on for quite some time. And, um, Matt was deteriorating something awful. He no longer ran. He was a runner. Um, he gave away his television cause he couldn't stand to see the news anymore with his picture on it. His dad was who is my oldest brother has Parkinson's disease and it was affecting him something awful. And Matt felt felt very guilty about the effect it had on his dad. And as the year was coming to a close, it was almost Christmas. Matt had lost a ton of weight. He was vomiting at this point. And he told his attorney, I just need this to be over. What's the best way for this to be over his attorney said, plead guilty. You're looking at six to 12 months in a federal prison minimum security. And mass is okay. Then that's what I'll do. And Matt was going to, he told me, I'll turn it into a positive. He said, I'll teach my fellow inmates, help them get their GEDs. I'll work on another degree for self at the time that was very intelligent and very giving. So that was settled. And the hearing was scheduled for March the third. And a week before the hearing, Matt called his attorney and he said, I just have a bad feeling. It's just a bad feeling came over me. So that's the day my mother died March the third. And his attorney says, well, Matt, I have bad news. They've postponed your, your hearing again to April fool's day. And the prosecution is looking to add a of sentencing enhancement terrorism. And this could have taken Matt's sentence to nine years in jail. Matt called me on the phone sobbing that day, uncontrollably sobbing, sobbing. I couldn't hardly understand him. He kept telling me he loved me. He kept apologizing to me for losing all of my friends. Cause I lost every friend. I almost, almost everyone I ever had over this. And I told him, don't worry. We're going to get through this together. Don't worry. God's not going to let you go to jail. I promise you this. And he told me he loved me. I told him I loved him. And that And I, I can't tell you the devastation that our family has felt. We're a big Italian family. We're very close. We never had any of our nephews or nieces ever in trouble before. And, um, now that some of this video evidence came out this past week, and it seemed I didn't even know it was on Twitter. Somebody messaged me and said, this looks like your nephew. And there's Matt walking calmly through the Capitol past six Capitol police officers just standing there

"When Is Later?" Doug's Lovely Wife Lisa Shares Her Travel Advice
"People today, and you mentioned COVID and I appreciate you doing that. Um, because people, you know, beforehand we're traveling COVID sort of shut a lot of that now, uh, right now, is it safe to say that travel is back to people ready to go and get out again? Uh, definitely people are ready to go out and see the world and realize that, uh, they may not have tomorrow. And so they want to experience all that they can today because we have no problem. Oh, you know, that's an interesting statement. I hadn't thought about that. Lisa is we, as we talk about this, you know, people, we, we sort of wait, we sort of wait, we sort of wait and, you know, we'll do it eventually, do it eventually. And you know, you and I both come from small towns in Georgia and, you know, we have been, you know, able to go a lot of places in the world, but you know, even we've talked about times where we'll, we'll do that later. Um, what would you say to somebody right now? Who's maybe thinking about, you know, traveling and they say, well, we'll do it later. When is later? Later never gets here. Yeah. You think never get, you know, later never gets here. Does it? No, we always fish it off. So never have enough money, never, you know, and the biggest thing I can say for those people is go ahead and plan it, plan it out. You know, you don't have to pay it all at one time. Uh, you can budget it out over a year. I mean, there's, you can make reservations up to, you know, through 20, 25 now in a lot of places. So you, you can do 18 months out without any problems.
Chris Reflects on His Incredible Bond With His Daughter
"Now, how is your daughter handling all this? Three years old, is she doing the sleepovers like great? Because I know you've only had a couple. So I just had my first sleepover, not last Wednesday, but the Wednesday before. So I've never had a time in which I haven't seen my daughter except when they withheld her. So it was like a month or two during that time. But no matter what, I was always, always seeing my daughter every Monday, Wednesday, Friday in the middle of the day, and every other Saturday and Sunday consistently. Never missed any time unless they were the ones withholding. And so, you know, the time difference has been difficult because like you're constantly back and forth dropping off. But for the most part, we have an amazing bond. Like I don't know if it's necessarily really affected her because the first overnight, not a single problem. Like she was like in heaven being here with Daddy. Like she has her own bed and I'm like, are you going to go sleep in your own bed? Are you going to sleep in, where do you want to sleep? And it's like, I'm going to sleep in Daddy's bed. I was like, but don't you want to try your bed out? I'll lay down, but I'm going to sleep in Daddy's bed. And like she just like sprawled out and she was like laying horizontal like my dog on the pillows. And it was like just, it was really adorable. But more importantly, like it was that whole day. I had 24 hours with her where like I wasn't in a rush to do anything. I just, I got to go about my normal day and I had her with me and she was so happy. And just spending the day with Daddy and the doggies and just, it was just so much fun. And then she's now looking forward to it because now she knows Wednesday's on my overnights. But then, you know, October is going to come really quick and now I'm going to have every Wednesday and every Friday. So it's really, it really was something else having her just the entire time without having to negotiate a time back and forth. And part of my negotiating now is like, you know, October is going to be an odd month for the other party because I have her every Friday. Which doesn't give her a weekend. And so I even offered, like, you know, here I am, like, I'm like, listen, you don't have a full weekend. If you want, I'll move the weekends that I don't have her and I'll move that Friday to a different day during the week. I'll have her different, a different day during the week for the overnight and then you'll have a full weekend with her. She still hasn't even responded to that. And that's what's crazy because most men, even me, like I talk about that stuff and I'm like, you're not only compromising for your daughter. But you're also compromising for your, your ex to make her life easier and have her be able to have your daughter on the weekends and things like that. It's like, why would you not try to get along and do that stuff? You know, again, it's, it's, and I, and I've always said this, I said this to everybody, it's not necessarily the ex. Her and I, if you take away the family core thing, her and I have always gotten along really well. It's her mother that's controlling her. She is, she is a pretty amazing person if you take away the grandmother. And so it's the grandmother making these decisions and not her. So like her, her option is either listen to the grandmother and just don't communicate at all, which is what, that's been her strategy this whole time. Is she doesn't have to cooperate because the courts have made the least amount of decisions possible until now. Now she knows that the court is like, you know, it was just a huge bombshell. I did not expect a 50 50 physical custody agreement. Like I did not, I was like mind blown. I just, I was like everyone on my side cause I had people there of course it was like crying. They're like, I'm in tears. Everyone's in tears. They're like, what just happened? It's like, what on earth just happened? Like, you know, I, I just, I just finished a criminal accusation which was indicted and you know, the judge, I actually, there was, there was a pretty big bombshell actually that happened. So part of my PTI is I need to get a psychological evaluation. But part of the transcripts that I showed you before is the judge wanted her to get a psychological evaluation, which basically was us like in 2021. But then the judge backpedaled because my attorney at the time was like, well, the burden of proof is on her. So if you want us to do a psychological evaluation, she should pay for it. And the judge completely backpedaled. She's like, Oh, well she doesn't have support. So how do you expect her to pay for it? Well, you're the one who wanted the evaluation. Okay, we're not going to issue the evaluation. But imagine if an evaluation was issued then how much, how, how nothing else possibly would have happened. I probably never would have been wrongfully accused of a crime. Like she would have been forced to co -parent or I would have had more, more parenting rights or more time with my daughter and she would have had, she would have been forced to co -parent.
Chris Describes Navigating Custody Battles and False Accusations
"You for having me on again. I know that we spoke the last time and I was going through a lot of, you know, the whole situation is terrible. And, you know, now I finally got some resolution and I know that you were like, you said that you're going back to court or something and you could use some, some, some good news. Yeah. So, you know, we, we, we last ended with my struggle going in and like trying to file for overnights previously. So I'll just give you a recap from that situation to now. Sorry, there's a dog. 2020, So in 2021, I was allowed to file for overnights. The judge was like, you know what, your child's too young. You can file when she's a year old. So I had to wait to file, of course, and then she's a year old and then you wait three months to get your hearing and then they hear you. And then that judge was like, okay, well, you weren't guaranteed overnights. You'll have to, um, you'll have to have like a custody neutral assessment, just like throwing anything you can in front of me just to, to block it. All right. And so we have a custody neutral assessment and then I get charged criminally, criminal charges. I go to jail for a day or so. For what? Yeah. So she accused me of stalking her and harassing her. And so then I get out of jail, of course. And the judge is like, okay, because there are charges pending, you know, she gets full legal custody and, uh, you know, you can't file for overnights until this is resolved. That is unreal. Now during my whole court proceedings, I think I even sent you some of the transcripts. Like I've been telling the judge that she is the one stalking me. She's outside my house all the time. Like she's, her mother is harassing me and yelling at me. I have like all this video footage of it. Like again, like once you get into family court, you have to document everything because there, there, there is no limits. Like a person will do absolutely anything to get the upper hand. But I've been telling the judge the whole time and he's like, well, are there any charges? I'm like, no, I don't think it's in my child's best interest for her mother to be in jail. So she gets this idea and now I'm the one that ends up in jail. So the judge takes all of my rights away and because of this stalking allegation. However, right before he does it, we were in court and she tells the judge point blank, yes, I am stalking him. After all of this, I've been telling the judge that she's been stalking me. I, I have all of the evidence. The judge takes all of my rights away. She tells the judge that she's stalking me. And in the transcript you see the judge, oh, that don't need to be on the record, which is hilarious. And then, and then so I lose all my rights and he's like, okay, well when your, your, your charges resolve, you can then file for overnights again. So now we fast forward because, you know, 19, I think like took 19 or 20 months for it to finally resolve. And I ended up having to go into this, so like, like my case was like indicted by the way. I ended up having to go into this program called PTI because I've never, I'm not a criminal. I've never been in trouble for anything. And, and if you don't know what PTI is, PTI stands for pretrial intervention. It's for, it's for people that have never been in trouble. And they're like, well, you're facing some serious allegations or charges. And instead of like having a record, you basically go into this program. It's like a one time get out of jail free card. And once you complete the program, you no longer have chart, you have no longer have a criminal record. All this will go away. So I have to enter this program. And of course the mother is like fighting with, fighting with the prosecutor and like trying to keep me from this resolving as much as humanly possible. Even after she's already admitted to stalking me, which is like bizarre because you would think that would go somewhere, right? Right. I mean, I'd be going after the judge. Like, you know, there's, it's, it's almost nothing you can do about it. You know, like, um, you know, the very final hearing, you know, all of this is going on and the judge is like, you know, this child's gonna have a terrible life. This is all my fault. And he says that on the record. It's like insane. Like, so, so I, I go through this thing for 19 months, but while, while I'm waiting for my criminal issue to resolve, I'm enforcing court orders because now she's taking it upon herself to keep my daughter from me. So now we're still in court. So I filed to enforce the court order. She has like over 30 violations and, uh, the, the, you know, the, every, I have, I go through the two judges and the judges are like, nobody wants the judge that I have now, by the way, the judge is like, you know, nobody wants to deal with this, so I'm going to deal with it. You know, and it took 10 months to get it, to get it in front of, into a trial. So we have a trial and the judge finds her to purposely be thwarting my time and her being a liar and you know, and, and all of the criminal things came out during this trial as
147: Peacemaking in Paris: The Treaty of Versailles - burst 2
"Today is a story of peacemaking, particularly 1919's of six -month Paris Peace Conference culminating in the Allied Powers Treaty with Germany, the Treaty of Versailles. And it has a lot of moving pieces. We'll start with the U .S. midterm elections of 1918, which could impact the Senate's future choice to ratify this treaty or not. From there, we'll join Woodrow Wilson, who's personally representing the U .S. at the conference, to push his 14 points, especially his League of Nations. But can the idealist American out -navigate Georges Clemenceau, who wants to punish Germany and dismantle its military capabilities? What about the smooth -operating Welsh wizard Britain's David Lloyd George? We'll find out as we hear what their conflicting values and goals yield amid talks of a League of Nations assigning quote -unquote mandates in the Middle East, Africa, and the Pacific as Georges and Woodrow's timbers flare over German and French territory. And of course, as we learn what this conference ultimately asks, sorry, demands, that the Germans sign in the Palace of Versailles Hall of
Mike Agugliaro: To Scale a Business You Have to Scale YOURSELF
"So what would you, what do we tell the company that the business owner who's been doing, you know, somewhere between two and four million and he's capped out and he's burned out and he's not charging enough. What kind of advice do you understand it? He's good at what he does, but he doesn't understand a lot of the business side. What kind of advice do you give that guy? Well, I mean, the first thing everybody should write down, that's listening to this to, to scale anything, you have to scale yourself. And I think people don't spend enough time investing in improving themselves. They, they carry these belief systems that they've been programmed with. Like my dad, you know, he, he told me when I was a kid, he programmed me with money doesn't grow on trees. And after I was doing about 20 million in business and just anybody listening, I went from under a million to 32 million in less than 10 years. So I had 165 service trucks on the road all over New Jersey. You know, we, we did 40 ,000 customers a month. So we did a fair amount of customers, 200 employees, double digit profit. And what's that? What year? That was 2017. And I sold it in 2017, which feels like yesterday to me, I sold it for a sign my name and walk away deal at one of the highest multiples, not compared to what's happened through this last roll up, but one of the highest multiples, I was like the cat's meow, you know, and my dad, I went to him and I said, dad, you were right about one thing and wrong about another. And of course, my dad's a big Italian guy. He wants to know what he did wrong, right? I said, first, you told me money doesn't grow on trees. I said, but if I had lemon trees and apple trees, I could pick that and sell it for money. And he said something to me that changed my life forever. He said, you know what, son, I only told you what my dad told me. And in his dad told him, I started to question myself, how many people struggling in business in the world today for whatever they want to do, because they keep following beliefs that might have some value, but may not have what you need today. So then, of course, Greg, you're probably wondering, my dad's like, oh, well, at least what did I tell you that that was true? I said, well, you told me you didn't own the utility company, shut the damn lights off. And I said, you were right. You still don't own you still don't own the utility company. And then I became just like my dad, my kids, my whole life telling them shut the lights off, right? I don't own the utility company. So I think that's part about business owners today is to sit there and say, hang on, maybe I don't know. The next one, I'd say probably number three here is I am such a believer in coaching. Not because we do forms of coaching. I've had seven coaches is the most I had at one time. I had spiritual coach, relationship coach, marketing coach, business scaling coach. I have seven. I am a big believer that you're investing in solving your most immediate problem. And you probably heard this phrase. Everybody heard it like success leaves clues. But like who has time to be like when my daughter was little, she used to watch Dora the Explorer for anybody that knows that like who has time in life, Greg, to go run around and play Dora the Explorer and look for a clue. I want someone to give me the clue right now and say, look, here's what I want you to consider. If you do this and this, you're probably going to get that. And we've proved that over time. So those three, those couple things there can change everything for everyone.

"And I think that's the bit that a lot of us struggle with because we kind of just want to tell our stories and move on and then people want to hype up whatever we said. I've had this personally. I've had comments I've made, which are so benign, so pathetic, so boring, and then people want to amplify it in some way, to a ridiculous level, just to get the comments and the likes because that's how you get the attention on the issue. And that's not great. It doesn't help the cause because it can make you look like you're just for attention, or you're blowing something up for the sake of it. And not actually really doing any major advocacy at all. I'm talking specifically around disability advocacy here. I conundrum, isn't it? Because one thing we for sure can not have on social media is a nuanced and complex conversation. Yeah, I'm not even sure it's just social media. This is a culture shift, isn't it? The click bait headline. This is just everyone is vying for attention. There's so many, it used to just be, you know, broadcast TV or radio. But thanks to the Internet now, everyone's got their own little platform, be it their own website, their own forums and groups, their own email lists, whatever it may be. And there is a lot of a lot of people will do things for attention. That is right because likes numbers, they do matter. I don't know what the answer to that is. I am just very choosy and I do recognize the clickbait and it doesn't matter if that's a tweet or a Facebook post or an article headline. I tend not to fall for the bait, basically. But it is really tricky. And she is absolutely right. It does work. And that's the problem. Those contentious posts do draw a lot of attention.

"And therefore, of course, like I say, the social media companies want that engagement. And so that is what you're getting fed on your news feeds and that's why we're seeing these shocking outrageous things with very provocative language in because that's what we're being fed because that's what works. That's what works on the screen. If people aren't retweeting it if people aren't sharing it and liking it, who cares, really? What we have to remember is social media is just merely a tool and we are people who are using that tool. And I think we need to take back the responsibility for how we're using that tool. What we're saying, how we're going about it. And like you, I'm not somebody who will never call anything out. If I don't think it's right, but there is a certain way of doing that that means that you come across in a different way. You don't just come across as somebody who only will talk about the negative and who only will see the outrage and the anger and things. You can be nuanced. I think like I say, though, the difficulty with that is, if you're in it for the likes and the follows, you're less likely to do it in that nuanced way because that's just not simply what works on social media, but I think you can do that, but it's just you've got to be in it for because this is the right thing and I believe in it and I'm not going to cop out rather than I'm doing this because I want all of the engagement. It's interesting on social media how we are probably more careful certainly I feel this. I am more careful about what I retweet. I am more careful about what I say. And it's not necessarily because I have views that are abhorrent in any way. But it's just that what is abhorrent ten years ago that we're now deciding is enough to get you canceled.

"And I think we're all in a place where there doesn't, like you said, does not really seem to be another type of social networking that would make it as easy for us to find each other and support each other in the way that Twitter has because of the way it's laid out. And I also think with the with the accessibility experience team being gone, they did such a great job of educating people about accessibility and from some of the comments I've seen in reply to tweets I've made since this has happened. There's still a lot of people who do not understand accessibility. And so even though it should not necessarily be our responsibility to do that education, I think that Twitter will be a much worse place if there's not those of us who are advocating for it or talking about it and being very vocal about it. So I feel like there is a small level of responsibility. We have to each other to making sure that people who are still not understanding what accessibility is, just helping them understand why it's important why it's beneficial and that it's not something that you can just put out onto the website. And it's like, oh, they did accessibility. It's done now. They can be fired. And there you go. Theresa talking 6 months ago. And I don't think anything Theresa said there really has changed since then till now. And I don't know if I would say it's gotten worse, but certainly it feels like she could have said this yesterday. And it would have felt the same. Yeah, I don't know. I think the whole finding your tribe and connecting with people, I think that Mastodon, I mean, our recent experience with Mastodon, right? It's fine. It's fine. But I think that that whole being an advocate and challenging other Twitter users viewpoints when it comes to disability.

"It was a different thing. I want to bring in this comment. This is from because we spoke to poppy. We also spoke to Theresa. And Teresa shared her thoughts also with us on the news of the Twitter layoffs. Let's hear what Teresa had to say 6 months ago to the show. So when it first became clear that the layoffs would be imminently coming to Twitter, I was fully expecting there to be cuts to that team, but I was completely taken aback by reading that it was the entire accessibility experience team. I feel like we've definitely seen indications that efficiency and getting things to out quickly is going to take priority over creating products and features that are done well and I think we all know that accessibility you have to do a lot of testing and a lot of time goes into making sure that those products and features serve the entire audience. So I was expecting it to be a lower priority on their list of things that they were going to be focusing on in the future, but I definitely was not expecting them to cut everybody whose focus was accessibility. Look, many people use social media for many different reasons. But it is clear that the disability community gets a lot out of social media in lots of different ways. What does Twitter mean to you? So I started losing my vision about 8 years ago and during that time I learned really quickly that digital spaces just were not designed with my needs in mind. It was and it was something I just had not considered as somebody who spent my life fully cited for the most part until suddenly I wasn't. So for me, I always appreciated that Twitter if they were a little slow to start off with to embracing accessibility.

"I mean, it seems huge. She would seem really affected by it. And so the question is, okay, do we leave at a solidarity with? Those sacked accessibility workers. You know, or the same time, are we happy to leave what we built? And if we do leave, does that sort of justify or validate that decision to get rid of the accessibility team? Well, we don't need it. That's not really a use case. I mean, do we stay there and shout? We need accessibility and in the future. It's a really good comment. I loved poppy there. Everything she said, I agree, but then I actually probably still agree with to some degree there's a lot there. I still agree with what she says. But she doesn't. Well, yeah. And we should definitely pick up on that. I would love to know what she thinks now. And I would have gotten to that today, but I kind of want to do more focus on the past today just because we're at this point. I mean, we could have gone on and had that conversation with poppy, but I feel that's maybe for another day. I feel it's important to recognize where we've been. And what I think came out of all of this for me personally was a real understanding of how people feel about this platform. Up until then, I guess, and maybe it's an age thing and I think it is an easy thing for me. And I guess you're the same as well. There comes a point. Twitter came quite late in my life. It was 2000 7. That's something that stood out for me. Sorry, carry on. Well, just to say, you know, from the point of view of late in my life, it wasn't a major part of my life. It felt like a gimmick. It felt like a thing that people just did. And I remember people saying, oh, it's a fad.

"And of course all the other stuff he's doing at SpaceX and Tesla, how this guy has time to sleep. I don't know. I don't know how that works. And whether you think he's a genius, whether you think is an idiot, whether you think he's someone who should be nowhere near social media, whatever you think of him. We are where we are 6 months in and it doesn't look like he's going anywhere. But I think the bigger point is, when Musk took over, there was a lot of talk of that was it for Twitter. It was finished. It would die a horrible death, and that was it. People would leave. The platform would be defunded, essentially, advertisers would walk away, and in the last 6 months, a lot of that has happened. A lot of people have gone away. There was stats of about 450 million people using it. Now it's done a bit 295 if you believe the stats. You know, one could be too high. The other one could be too low. You just don't know, right? But these are the numbers we're playing around with. That's what I'm reading. So 450 9 billion 295 million advertisers have walked away some of those have started to come back. People did leave people came back. So there's been a lot of tune for on this. And I think the question mark is is Twitter bigger than Elon. And I think the answer to that is yes. I think at Twitter is definitely bigger than Elon. And it's kind of proven that because despite all the challenges, despite all the talk, a lot of people still come back with the people who are still on there, come back with the point the stay because the platform is important. The platform is important. Let's just maybe segregate this for a second and talk about disabled people and just disabled people. And it's funny because I just say, you know, why is it short readout tweets? Well, that's what I'm about to do. Because I did ask on Twitter. I put out a question where Flynn 6 months now of Elon Musk at the helm of Twitter. You know, from the blind perspective of what you're feeling about the platform today, why did you stay? So lots of people got in touch and two particular names who were going to hear from today. And we're going to go back a little bit because 6 months ago, we talked to poppy and Theresa about their experiences. We're going to hear them at the time talking about the news of Twitter. Getting rid of the entire accessibility team, which we'll get into. And of course, that was a big area of concern for disabled people. But just to start things off, let's look at some of these tweets and messages, why have people stayed? Well, Tracy says there are many people here that I still follow and want to see their tweets. As for being blind, she says I use the app on the phone and it's still the same as it has been. So no major changes there. Tim says I don't agree with many of the policies by Elon or how he treats staff, however many of the people I follow are still here.

It's going to be interesting. Well, of course, the whole thing is interesting. That's why everyone keeps talking about it. Yes. How can one man make a difference? I remember we used to have a debate about this on the show. You know, how can one man make a difference? Well, it seems he can make a difference all, right? Because absolute chaos mayhem. But the key is to have one man and $44 billion. Yes. That's, I guess, the bigger part of this, really, than just the one man fact, right? Yes. So yeah, 6 months, it's been 6 months. It feels like so much longer. It's time in my hand of the other day. Yesterday, in fact, and I'm like, oh, it's not been ten years. Has it really wow, and now I'm feeling like the relationship I've had with Elon Musk has felt longer than my mask. That feels like ten years, and it's only been 6 months, yeah. It's like he's always been there now, but it's just because it's just all the time it's just different, it just seems to be a 180 U turns and different changes and the polls that don't seem to be adhered to. It's a roller coaster ride, if nothing else. Yeah, it is. I think he's taken a lot from the Trump playbook, I think. You know, how can I get myself in the news every single day and every single way? That was Donald Trump's thing through his whole life. You know, he's done that he's done that when he lived in New York. He did it as president and I think some people have thought, this is a really cool idea. Just constantly be in front of the news.

Which connection request is going to get a yes. The hey, I'd like to add you to my network or the hey, I see you went to SUNY brockport as well. Congrats on making it big time. What I get fascinated with is those that cold message you and you've got responded probably because you're working. And then it's been maybe three hours or something like that or even as long as the day and then they start hitting you with why aren't you answering and it's like, I don't even know who you are, didn't even see it until, you know, my email lit up with 15 why, you know, answering. And it's like, if you're going to start a relationship like that, what makes you think someone's going to convert? When you're so aggressive, and I'm a firm believer that you set terms and they're undefined. You set terms, the moment you meet someone, the moment you start to chat and negotiate, you're setting terms for what the relationship's going to look like. And if you're starting relationships, especially business relate, any kind of relationship in this cold message, no personality, artificial intelligence kind of, that's not a way to start a relationship. And I ask myself if that's how they message me the first time, what's it going to be like to work with them in the long run and I immediately am not interested in connecting with that person because it puts a bad taste in my mouth. Call me crazy, but I think that the way you introduce yourself is a reflection on how you do business and if you're introducing yourself in such a poor way, what's it going to be like to work with you? Yeah, I remember somebody's cold messaging me. And it was a fantastic message. And I was instantly interested. So I reached back. Because I was like, yeah, I'm interested in talking to you.

"That makes sense. So it is about that sort of win win. And especially if you're highlighting someone, I suppose the fact that you've got local people to begin with meant that they were pretty proud to be able to tell their friends and because you've got, I suppose you get that word of mouth a lot quicker because it's a much smaller community than if it just floundering on the net on it. Yeah, there's no correlation between quality of and I say this in the most loving way possible. I want to put an asterisk here. This is not broad strokes. I mean this with love. There's no correlation between the quality of the episode and how well it did in terms of listens and promotion. The episodes that did the best were the episodes where the person I interviewed went the extra mile to promote it and a lot of times they weren't the most well spoken, they didn't have the largest business, but they had a lot of friends and family and community members that supported them. So when they shared it, it went like crazy, popularity from an episode that you wouldn't expect and then you'd have a big name guess that's possibly one of my guests. He's won four Grammys. You'll have a Grammy Award winning Gaston and it won't be as popular, so there was no correlation between the guests and the really it was just the local audience had friends and family that were local and were excited to share with each other. It was a very, I'm stumbling on my words 'cause I haven't thought about this, but it was very interesting. The way that even if an interview went poorly, sometimes it would be really popular because the community would jump on board. If that makes sense. Yeah, I see that all the time

I love the idea of interior designers and realtors because they're staging homes all the time and i right. I've seen this before with interior designers. Were they're bringing their own flowers for photo shoots or something and on my gosh. What a way to stock up on a little collection you could have all sorts of colors and shapes and sizes for all the different homes. You're you're designing so smart especially not to like keep having to go buy it over and over again. Because i'm sure that they have like classic pieces that they can. They will work in like any home right. Those are those are fun ideas. Yeah florus for sure or like florist who do workshops. Both of us have been garden. Centers and flower workshops and have people pick from an assortment really cool drifted vases. Yeah that's a great idea. All right so we know that you can fill your vases with flowers but you can fill them with anything. There are so many different type of vase fillers that you can use year round. I like to fill mine with ornaments around the holidays. I've seen people do fruit. You could do scented fillers. You could make terrariums with succulents. You could have a cute little small vase on your desk and fill it with markers or pens. I mean anything you want to fill it with. You can just think of it as like a cop. Yeah the first time.
