AT#647 - Travel to Phoenix, Arizona

"The bags back on the road. There and read it's go real good pass board. Hamma traveler pursued six hundred forty seven today. The amateur traveler talks about art, museums and western culture, hikes petroglyphs and Naro cactus. As we go to Phoenix, Arizona. The metre traveler, I'm your host, Chris Christensen. Let's talk about Phoenix. I'd like to welcome back to the show Cindy Carlson from exploration vacation dot net. Who has come to talk to us about Phoenix cine? Welcome to the show. I Chris thanks for having me or welcome back to the show said he was here about one hundred episodes ago. I was surprised it was that long ago talking about northern Vietnam. And if you haven't heard that episode I like that episode, obviously because otherwise she would be back. So Cindy, we're talking about a much more domestic destination this time in what's your connection with Phoenix? My now there's been down there about thirty years now. And so I've been going down there pre regularly since about nineteen ninety five bending sometimes just a few days and sometimes spending even a couple of weeks down there exploring the area. Excellent. So she is a snowbird in the language of the area. Yes. My parents are snowbirds I'd snowbird if I could convince my husband to spend more time down there but likes books. Gets a tad warm in the summer for me and Phoenix. And just so we know we usually don't talk about whether for a while. But one of the reasons a lot of people come down in the wintertime, lovely lovely weather summertime. They'll get one hundred days in a row that will go of one hundred degrees Fahrenheit. So that just baby something you think about we have a friend who moved to Phoenix because the summer's here in San Jose that only got two ninety were not hot enough for her. So if you like hot weather, that's definitely good time to go lot more people there in the winter. And there's a lot to do. Actually, I haven't been there in the summer, but there's a lot to do in the summer inside. And there's actually water in rivers and floats and things I have a lot of friends that live there year round. And they actually say summers aren't always that bad. Right. Well, it depends. Again, what you like. And I do know that the friends who go out hiking tend to do it early in the morning in the summertime or or later in the evening usually early in the morning when it's the coolest time of day, but what kind of itinerary do. Recommend for us for Phoenix. So I tried to put together, and I tend to worry that's really aimed at first time. Visitors to Phoenix it gives them an idea of what Phoenix is about where it came from what the landscapes like and what the people who've lived their past and present are like and it's geared. It's five days because five days seems to be to me a good amount of time to get a real feeling for Phoenix. It's still leaves you enough time that if you want to spend time golfing or laying by the pool or you wanna make a trip up to Grand Canyon, which I know you've covered on one a year. Previous shows you can add that on then it's a week's vacation and still do all the stuff that I'm recommending will you we won't took quite as much about site trips. But there are a number different things if you had north or south either down to Tucson, we've done it episode on that or up to flagstaff area up to Grand Canyon or even up to the north east corner of the state, we've got different shows about northern Phoenix. So we won't be talking about them now. But what should we do in Phoenix? Well, actually, let me back up a bit here. I should start with. Why should we go to Phoenix of all the places we should go to sell? I think Phoenix gets the bad rap as as a snowboard destination. Oh, it's just where the retirees go because warm it's hot in the summer. Why would you ever go to Phoenix? And Phoenix, particularly in the last fifteen years twenty years, maybe now has really become a arts and culture hub. It's got a a thriving lively downtown great art scene. It has spectacular scenery all around the city with the snoring desert there. It's become a real interesting place to go. There's something there. I think for everyone, and it's really a worthwhile destination. There's a lot to see in Phoenix that you probably won't see and other places. The only part of that that I would show is that that has happened over the last ten or fifteen years because I've been going there at longer than that. And I think it's getting better known for that over the last ten fifteen years, I think that's been there for. A while in terms of the arts and culture. I think part of it is as light rail's come in. It's maybe it's more that it's expanded places like downtown Mesa that used to be really dead are now little art tub's. Okay. And so maybe that's it because it's been building. It's I've always liked Phoenix. But I think it's really become something that a lot of people don't expect excellent. And we're should we start? So I'm gonna suggest that people start by learning about the Sonoran desert by actually going out to the desert botanical garden, which is in northeast. It's a beautiful place as botanical garden it, of course, has landscaped areas and non native plants, but it also has large areas of native plants. It's a great place to soak in the beauty of the desert and to learn about the desert, so that when you go hiking on your own, you know, that even those those Challah cactuses might look really friendly fuzzy that to get near them. So it gives you both that introduction to the desert as well as beautiful place to wander. You can easily spend a few hours or half day there. They have a fabulous cafes. What's a nice place to spend some time in the garden, and then wandered to the cafe will want to make sure that we're talking about the same place because the desert botanical garden that I know is not in north Phoenix. It's on almost in Scottsdale. So it would be east of Phoenix. It's right on the border of Scottsdale. And Phoenix you that's not north Phoenix east, east Phoenix. Okay. And that's another thing. I should mention that. I have geographic dyslexia when it comes to Unix. So keen on is because I miss a west when I really mean east it's over by Scottsdale, and it's beautiful. It's right at the foot of the mountains beautiful place to walk in wander. I happen to see it. The first time when there was a truly exhibit. So my experience there is quite different because there was all sorts of glass being shown at the same time. But what if a place especially for kids to recommend our kids love the butterfly exhibit, for instance, there as well as some of the other. And they've actually redone the gardens since you've been there since the league's of it. And there are still still Hulas and some other sculptures in the garden. They do special events visitors coming into Phoenix should check the schedule and see they sometimes do big fun parties out in the garden at night and different things can be hard to get tickets to those. But there are blast. If you can get them. Excellent. So because that's not necessarily a full day. If you want to do a little more that day, I would continue on towards the west to the Pueblo grandee museum, which it's a museum in an archaeological park, it's fairly small museum. But they do really nice job of talking about the hokum people who live in the Phoenix area more than thousand years ago. They actually were the original ones building canals in the salt. River valley canals bring all Phoenix's water in today. But that actually goes back to ancient culture that lived there more than a thousand years ago. It's a nice little museum the archaeological site itself, isn't terribly into. There's not a lot left. But the museum dozen nice job of introducing you to what this area was like in the people who live there a long time ago. The other alternative end out your first day would be if it's on a Thursday had over to Scottsdale and do evening art walk and have dinner down on the in the arts district in historic Scottsdale, which is a really fun place. And I'll talk about that a little more in the next day. We should say we haven't really even gone very far from the Phoenix harbor airport here for the first two stops does botanical gardens. The public grid museum are practically stone's throw from the airport. So we haven't ranged very far afield yet. This is all fairly easy to a stone. So for Phoenix anyway, which is a gigantic Norma's area. Geographically is a very large area. Geographically. That's right. I forget to actually put together two different options, depending on visitors interest level of interest in native cultures or cowboy culture, I've got two different options. One the one would. Be two more about the people who live in the southwest today. And that would be a trip to the heard museum in downtown Phoenix even closer to sky harbor airport. We haven't left really Phoenix at all for these. The today's the herd is both a cultural history and art museum about half the museum or more is devoted to exhibits on the peoples of the southwest with separate areas on each different culture, and both modern and historic pieces of art in basket tree in different daily aims of daily life. The other part of the museum includes an exhibit which for in my part of the country is something people don't know as much about as the Indian boarding school era. They've just redone the exhibit. I haven't seen the new one. But the old one was both fascinating and really heartbreaking. But really really interesting again mostly history. But combining modern perspectives and information as well. And presenting it in a way. It's very very acceptable like the exempts really geared for both adults and for children in the area. You're talking about here is an era where they want to pending on how you how you look at this. The one side would say they wanted to include the native Americans in American culture, and therefore they wanted to inculturated them. And the other side would say that they wanted them to lose their identity as native Americans and inculturated them. But it was definitely a very intentional move to bring them in to have the move away from their families to go to these boarding schools and two tournament white people would be the crude way of saying that. Yeah, it's a very complicated history. And it's a very painful history. And although it's mixed for some people that experience as much as it was it had some negative sides. It also brought good things to them others found it just devastating. And they try to deal with all that in a really meaningful, and I think respectful way at the herd. The herd has it's mostly native curator's in. So they do a really nice job at dealing with those complicated issues. The other thing the heard is is a arts museum contemporary or more historic pieces of art, usually all native arts. The most recent show featured Yupik masks from Alaska combined with works by Matisse because he had used some of these masses and Spiratou in his work, generally, though, the shows are focused on native arts native artists, those shows are always splendid really high high quality works. If you're at all interested in native art and the contemporary native art seeing the heard will have something spectacular. They have the finest collection. Definitely in the west and probably some of their collection is probably will to some of the pieces the collection at the national museum of the American Indian. They really do a nice job with their show. Depending on how long you heard you have a couple other options for the day. You are right downtown at the heard you're in an old historic neighborhood. You're just north of the Phoenix art museum. The phoenix. Art museum has a lovely collection. They are pretty much the standard big city museum. They have a lovely collection. But it's it's not Phoenix specific for the most part, the exception to that is their photo exhibit draws from the Zona state university collection. Unusually has some really interesting things in it. And they do spectacular spectacular special exhibits. So if you're an art person, you might just want to walk down the street and spend the rest of the day at Pam. I did forget to mention that at the heard have lunch before you leave the herd. They have a fabulous cafeteria than head onto whatever else. The Pam would be one of them the Phoenix art museum the option if you kind of had enough art for the day, or what little smaller museum is to get in. A car and head over to the smaller museum with the a state capitals the state capitalism. It's the old capitol building. They've preserved a few rooms in the building. But they have some really interesting exhibits in there. It's not very big. But they have a exhibit on the Zona the worship which was sunk in Pearl Harbor and some memorabilia from some of the survivors as well as this was news to me that all these ships have find China and silver and fancy settings like you get some Victorian dinner party, and they have all that on display there as well. They also have some very interesting displays on the beginnings of AirAsia as a state in the establishment of the of the state, including the fact that Arizona kind of played a dirty trick to get into the US as a state. They were required to change something in their provision for how they will how the handled their judges and didn't like with the federal government wanted them to. Do. So they went ahead and did it to become a state. And then as soon as they were state, they went and undid it and did it the way they want it to. Whole section on it. It's really quite interesting. So those are my day to option number one my action number two is to go back up. If you haven't been discussed to go to Scottsdale and do western spirit. I don't know. Have you been to western spirit in Scottsdale? Chris I do not know where you speak of with westerns. Still, but this is relatively new museum. It's maybe five years old at the most trying to capture the full extent of the the life and population changes in the west, and it has several components that it's a fine art museum more than a history museum. Although it does have historic pieces. One piece of the museum is a cowboy collection or western collection that has things like Spurs and saddles and all the things you'd expect in like a cowboy museum or an old west museum except most of the pieces were collected because of their artistic value more so than as artifacts of the old west that's a fun place for kids. But it's it's kind of cool for everybody because they have all this stuff. And you start looking at it. And you're like, wow, I never knew Spurs could be that interesting. But they can be part of museums fine. Art, mostly they've been expanding what they've been showing. They usually always have a big section by a prominent bronze artist who does away art in features native Americans, although he's not native American himself. They've added now a western movie poster collection that they acquired so there's usually some sort of western movie themed exhibit. They've also added a collection of Hopi classic historic and contemporary, but mostly historic Hopi pottery that they always have some of undisposed, and then they have some other traveling exhibits they've had western cartoons. They've had the towel Spain tres different things, but very much art based most of the first floor is very much art based except for the movie posters in the western cowboy things the second floor has to Perm semi permanent exhibits one of which saved Alaska. It's kind of. Exhausting. It's a fine. It's interesting. He's laughing. It's a fine art exhibit. That tells the story of the settlement of the west and meeting of the natives and the Anglos as they started settling the west, it's a big Zabit. And it's interesting, but more interesting is the other half, which has mostly has some fine art, but it mostly has more what we would consider artifacts and objects. So it has some artifacts and things from the Lewis and Clark exhibition. It has collection of spectacular chief's blankets. It has a bunch of Curtis. And they've changed this since I was there. The first time of Curtis original Curtis images of native Americans and showing all the different printing presses he used which was something. I had never seen the goal tones in some of that before. And so that was really interesting. It's got a fabulous mix of items and again, very large exhibit. So this is a museum that if you wanna see everything it will take most of the day to take a break here.

Well, it's interesting that's in Scottsdale because of the city's so Phoenix there's Phoenix downtown, and we didn't say, but there's all sorts of different places. We'll be talking about around it including Scottsdale to the east and Scottsdale. I would say of the places that I have been in the area is the most cowboy town that the downtown Scottsdale has more cowboy art exhibits in stores and things like that and has more of that western heritage. I think they call themselves the most western town in the west. And it's a love downtown scout till it's an already town with this western heritage. And my grandfather actually was a cowboy so I have a fondness for the. Western heritage. We have his Spurs. He was on the last round up in Colorado when he was sixteen he busted broncs, adding. So I have some connection to this. Although I myself am not a couple I would say to if you're bringing kids along in being a western museum Alday seems like that might be the seventh layer of hell for you. You might. Instead if you wanna get in touch with the western heritage take them up to rawhide, which is a wonderfully touristy cheesy. Western recreation town in northern Scottsdale that is more of a kid friendly way to look at some of the western culture. And glad you added that I have not been to rawhide. I was looking at that the other day going I have to get up there. I took my kids there as as a kid. We join it. I mean, it's touristy it's cheesy. But it's great western spirit has some sections for kids and the western area part of it is Scott some good stuff. But both the heard and western spirit. Are pretty adult oriented museums. And glad you mentioned the old town Scottsdale because that would be my other recommendation as once you finish western spirit is actually right along that area where all the galleries and auction houses studios and things are and they've got that fixed up as a mall. You can go down you can walk into some window shopping. You can go in the galleries. There's a whole range of art. There's the western art. But now there's a lot non western themes done by western artists contemporary artists than there was a few even a few years ago. There's a lot of good restaurants there. No problem finding someplace to eat. Did you have one you would recommend? I was looking to see if there were any that I could recommend, but none are occurring to me. Cafe forte. Okay. Mr. right down on that end in. It's a lovely lovely spot. They do very beautiful dinners and nice lunches there. We've eaten there a couple times. It's not a budget place, but it's not super expensive either. And also for art lovers if you really into art and want something different. If you feeling a little overwhelmed by native and western art, the Scottsdale contemporary art, gallery is down at the end of the mall in that is completely different small small small museum only usually four maybe five exhibits on installations more often, but really interesting edgy stuff. So if you want a little change of pace, that's a good place to walk down to see what's happening. And as I mentioned Thursdays are there art night. Most of the year, they have galleries are open late. The museums. They're open late things are free. Most of the things are free, and you can walk around. And it's kind of an event it's a lot of fun to do something like that. Where to next day three. I think it's time to get out in the Sonoran desert a little farther. I'd recommend taking a hike. Phoenix is a great city for hiking or biking more just getting out in nature, you can hike right in the city of Phoenix. But as you go towards the edges of Phoenix, you have the mountain parks, which are spectacular. There's some some parks that we've that we've really really liked because they have nice mix of trails and fabulous scenery include the mountain parks right in town. And also thinking of the Phoenix mountains, preserve I'm thinking of all of those north so user mountain park Dowell park farther out is lost further out. Okay. The problem with the parks like doing the Camelback hike is that you're there with ten thousand other people so the Camelback so there are places to hike inside the city I've been in Phoenix mountain preserve which is an easy hike. And then there's. Camelback mountain, which is between Phoenix and Scottsdale, which is a much more strenuous hike, but a very popular hike, especially to go up there for sunrise is a very popular thing to do. But yeah, it is more popular while you can get around Phoenix proper Phoenix in Mesa Tempa without a car because of the light rail, you cannot get to Scottsdale on the light rail, but you can get to the others. Generally Phoenix is so much easier with a car, and if you have a car like I say north cave creek has that's a beautiful park. It's not too far out of the city. If you're staying up in Scottsdale, I generally stay on the east end of the city. I generally stay way out in Mesa the eastern end may so or in Apache junction and from their lost Dutchman state park is just stunningly beautiful Usery mountain state usury mountain recreation area, there's a number of trails out there that are tackler take you right up into the edge of the superstition mountains. So you have the desert and you have the mountains and went flowers are in bloom. It's just it's a gorgeous air. Area. Do you have a particular trail you recommend the to remember by name? Well, this chew suggestions one is just about any of the lower trails in Las Dutchman are fabulous beautiful. And then there's a trail if you wanna go all the way out to gold canyon, which is at that far edged the mountains at the Phoenix area. There's a trail out there called the hieroglyphics trail, which has it's a not too difficult though. I haven't been out there in a few years, but it's still open. It's not too difficult trail that leads out to a basin where there's sometimes waterfall. There's always usually a pool, and then there's petroglyphs on all the cliffside some of them you walk right past the first time, I was out there. We were looking for the petroglyphs in. We were looking so hard for them thinking they'd be hard to find that we actually walked by them. I turned around at some point and looked at my girlfriend in the petroglyphs like over her shoulder right there like where you could touch them. So that's. Tackler hike in. It's not a terribly hard hike. Please don't damage the petroglyphs and don't touch them while you're out there 'cause you could date that damages the the artwork, but that's a spectacular hike on that end like say, we've gone out cave creek in the north has really some wonderful, easy, easy hikes. Kemba Wimpy hiker these days. So. But I would spend the day just take your time and do one of the parks and enjoy the desert again if you're out there in the spring, the flowers in the desert are spectacular just spectacular. So that's my day. Three is Spencer timeout in for hiking around or in the mountain forests are in the desert area hiking around day four I'm going to suggest something that has nothing to do with Phoenix. Except that it's the only place you'll find this. And that is the musical instrument museum. Good. I was gonna get there. If you didn't. All right. And it's not the only place you'll find it. But we'll talk about the. Hoping to see the other one the spring. So the musical instrument museum, ignore the name. It's a music museum. There are instruments in the museum. So that is not an accurate. Isn't the totality of the museum? It's really about music and the people who make music as well as the instruments it's experiential in that you put on a set of headphones as you walk through the museum, and as you look at an exhibit. If you turn to watch a classic performance on video you'll hear all the sound over your headphones. If you go up and look at Bali's instruments as you look at the gamma Lon, you'll start to hear the Gammel on play in your headphones. If you're watching classic rock somewhere again, you'll hear the sometimes nation, but usually it's just the music. It's a fascinating easy to go through in the shows. They have their special exhibits include things like women's Rackers, costumes, or we went to one that was it was an art exhibit. I don't remember what they called it. But it was like dragons vines, and it was all the inlay guitars and musical instruments from around the world from the US. It was just an incredibly beautiful show. You've been there. Chris. Wouldn't you say that there's something there for absolutely everybody? I have not been there. My wife has been there to this one. I have been to the one that inspired it in Brussels. But I have not been to this one yet. Oh, will you need to get there? It's unbelievably fun. And it takes leave a lot of time. We left about three hours to do the museum. We took my mother there, and we figured she'd be bored in three hours, and she wasn't board, and we weren't bored in the museum was closing. And so we were very disappointed that we had left more time. That's the same thing. I heard from oh if it was a trip where I drove back from Phoenix, San Jose, California, which is home for me and my wife, flew back. So she had a little more time that to to go and explore in what with reservoirs thoroughly enjoyed it. Yeah. It is a very good reputation. But haven't personally been there. I'm gonna check out the one in Brussels spring. I hope so I can compare the two, but I was very very impressed and for lovers of more world music or more. Interesting things, you don't usually see in concerts. They have a beautiful beautiful studio concert space. They're and they do full range of form Ince's through the winter at least. And so if you can't into town, you can check out and see there might be something really unusual there that you are unlikely to hear somewhere else than it's a beautiful space to hear music in. Excellent. Well, you're out in kind of out in that end of of Scottsdale. I think it is it's way north in Scottsdale. So maybe it is cut netra kind of Scottsdale Phoenix somewhere over there. The trip me up because most things just say Phoenix in the address. And so you're not really sure there is a loop of highways that kind of to me defines the main part of town. And e this is one a one on the north and ten on the south, and this is the northeast corner of that loop. It's out ways compared to the other places we've talked about while you're there. It's further west steel for something again, a little different. But now only in probably Phoenix there's a place called the deer valley petroglyphs do valley petroglyphs, preserve. There are petroglyphs had mentioned on the hieroglyphics trail. There's actually petroglyphs you can see on the south mountain hike, but deer valley has a whole hillside a boulders with hundreds and hundreds of petroglyphs, they have a interpretive center that talks about the petroglyphs attacks about the area and settlement in the area. It's a really pleasant little site. And if you're like me, really bad at spotting petroglyphs, these are even if you can't find them. I don't know how you couldn't there right in front of you. But they have volunteers out there to help you see the petroglyphs will show you where they are in point them out. So if you wanna see petroglyphs this it's handicapped accessible, it's an easy place to see a little bit more about the history of the area and see these ancient petroglyphs, it's in some really interesting spot. And it's a good extra spot. Run to if you're out at the musical instrument museum because it's kind of in that corner of more inner urban area. So for my last day. I am proposing that you leave that civilized Phoenix area behind and head out into the superstition mountains superstitions are on the east. They kind of the east border of the Phoenix area. Beautiful rugged mountains. They don't look like there is rugged as they actually are. There's a roadway into the superstitions a historic roadway called the Apache trail. It's if you go out to Lou lost Dutchman and some of the mountain parks out that direction you go right on the patchy trailer up to it for a while on the Apache trail, the first half of the trail is a paved road. It's very scenic. But it's in pretty good condition. It's an easy drive. Anyone can drive it. A good half day trip would be to take the trail out to canyon lake and take a cruise on the steamboat Dolly, which will take you down into. Along canyon lake into its back early backwaters, but the little offshoots canyon lake is a reservoir. It's Switzer flooded. Canyon has steep cliffs, lots of desert scenery, you might even see some to Bighorn sheep some wildlife while you're out is just a really pleasant little cruise either before after the Dalai, you should continue down the road to tortilla flat. Which is a either restored revived ghost town or a rebuilt completely rebuilt. Ghost town, the original tortilla, flat mostly burned down many many many years ago, they have a little restaurant out there. There's a teensy tiny museum. The restaurant is actually fairly good. It's really good. But it's very western themed, you know, saddles for barstools, and that sort of thing it's an interesting quirky place with decent food makes a really good stop for either before or after your cruise when you go there. It's about a half day trip to go out do the cruise. Have a meal, it tortilla flats and dry back for the more adventurous, the fun part of the road starts after tortilla flat. Skip the cruise unless you want a really long day, but you could do both once you pass tortilla flat. You you get to a hill. When you go down the hill the road turns dirt, it's basically the same unpaved road. It was in nineteen thirty six when it was last used as a the main highway between Apache junction, we'll between Phoenix and Payson and you are stepping back in time. It's one lane in some places. If you make it through fish creek through the steep descent than the twist the blind, the one lane blind curbs and that area than the rest of the road is pretty drivable. Always check the weather before you go to make sure the road isn't in terrible shape or washed out from Raines was recently graded the last time we were out there. There are some guardrails there are a lot of guardrails because it's a historic road. The apparently can't do much to widen it or improve. It, but that's part of the adventure. It's a stunning drive. It's a dusty drive. There are some some places to stop where you can admire. The senior admire the wealth lowers there's actually nother lake further down Apache lake. There's a little resort marina down there. When you get to the end of the road. There's a big dam area which creates another lake Roosevelt lake which is a big recreation area. And once you get all the way to the end in. It's only about twenty five miles on the unpaved portion, but plan at least an hour or more to drive that part. You cannot drive it over about thirty miles an hour, most of it. And some of it is a lot slower than that. You don't need a high clearance vehicle most of the time, it's not a bad idea. But you can drive it most of the time in a sedan without any problem. But for the adventurous drivers, it's a gorgeous drive when you get to the end, you can stop and take a break at Roosevelt lake, and then you either can go back the way you came or. There's a state highway that runs through the it's the tunnel. National forests, it's a lovely area. Partly desert, partly forested and takes you back down south to down in globe and coming across the globe and superior. There's another botanical garden down there that spectacular. If you want to do some more flowers if you're there and flower season can tell my thing is flour season. So flower season would be early spring starting in varies by year. But usually starting late February, Pat, the poppies sometimes mid February. But March is really marching into early April is usually when the flowers and this year offensive your listeners are thinking about going. This should be a great year for flowers. They've had a lot of rain this winter should be really really beautiful through most of it's already the starting to bloom even through all March should be really really nice the weather spoonful March is the high season, and we'll get into that in a little bit. Because there's a reason why it's the high season if the high part of the high season actually the winter is the high season go ahead. You're you're talking about flowers though, that Dr gives you some spectacular flowers the hallway when you come down in when you get down. It's Boyce Thompson arboretum down in superior, which is again at far far southeastern edge of the the Phoenix metro area. It's really I would. Didn't consider it part of the Phoenix metro area. But technically it actually is. It says spectacular drive in that garden is spectacular to Seoul. That's nice. It'd be a full day at a someone wants to do something. Like that gets you out of town and let get you out into the desert, which is sort of nice. If you're in spending all of your time right in the Phoenix area. That's only five days. There's other things you could do I did not mention tally Essen, which is Frank. Lloyd, Wright's grew dimension that Yuka. Winter residents. It's a very interesting place to tour. I think it's an interesting place to tour if you're an architecture geek, which I happen to be I not sure that I would recommend it for anybody. Who's not a real fan of architecture? But if you are a, yeah, this is a very major site. In fact, it is on the list of possible UNESCO world heritage site as a multi site portion about Frank Lloyd Wright, oh, I didn't realize that. Yeah. No. I would agree that you need to be an architecture fan and partly because it's quite expensive to tour. It's not a budget tour, and you have to buy to to do it for architecture fans in general Phoenix is a great city 'cause developed so much in the forties, and particularly the fifties and sixties, so it's unbidden century modern stuff everywhere, they do a mid century modern week in March. There's just lots and lots of interesting architecture from that period as well as some really interesting modern the lot of the civic buildings that were built. Twenty thirty years ago or more recently are just really spectacular both in Phoenix. And in Scottsdale in particular, the western spirit in Scottsdale is an architecture. Very interesting building with a lot of sustainability features interesting. Interesting features, there's a Pam the Phoenix. Art museum is a real interesting building. There's a lot of really interesting buildings. But for Frank Lloyd Wright fans, this is one of the big ones. The other thing. I didn't mention is for fans of either western art in general, Kobe, art or native American art is a museum down in Chandler called the Basha collection. And it was a private collection of Eddie Basha who runs the who. At one point ran the Basha grocery stores, and it's not curated the same way the say the heard or western spirit is but for someone who's interested in that sort of art, it's an amazing collection. He'll have he has in some cases, hundreds of pieces by the same artists. You can see like there. Development and style through time. It's a large collection in unlike most things in Phoenix for most museums. It's totally free only when weekdays, but it's an interesting thing. Most people don't know about the last one I'd add that people should maybe think about is the superstition mountain museum, which is a little more informal than most of the other museums. I've mentioned it's at the base of the superstitions where the Apache trail starts they have some really cool mining memorabilia pieces while not huge equipment. They have some historic buildings and some historic looking building. So they've set up kind of like an old mining town. And it's very atmospheric in the location stunning some beautiful beautiful location. The other thing that we haven't talked about is why March is so busy in Phoenix. And it's going to be one of the more expensive times to go and that's spring training. If you were a baseball fan, the number one reason that I have been Phoenix over the last twenty years or so is to go down for spring training. Half of the American baseball teams. Well, half of the American US and Canadian will end up in Phoenix and the other half in Florida, and you could go down and see half the teams play in general, and how cheap it is depends on where you go. If you go to Scottsdale stadium where the giants play you'll pay as much as you will for a game that you see in San Francisco, but on the other hand, if you go out to Glendale or Peoria to one of the other stadiums where some of the mid western teams are playing you can sometimes see a game for really cheap, you know, a game and a hotdog and can be quite a fun experience to go and see a number of the different teams all in a short period of time. Which is why it is. So popular will be a little more expensive to go that time of year. But that is a big draw in Phoenix in spring training starts in February and then finished March. Yeah. And. Really it's March. That's the the big thing. Because that's when they start playing more games the pitchers catchers reported mid-february. So that is something that we have been down for many times. And is is good fun. But again, a little more expensive you get friends to stay with. That's a great time to go but lights are going to be a little more hotels going to be a little more hotels early challenge and rental cars. I don't know if you guys fly drive, but I have been there in March where there has not been a rental car available in Phoenix. Believe that. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it seems as ING, but it's it's true because of the spring training and all there is a lot of marches probably Phoenix's month for the best weather of the entire year. It is a great time to usually I have also been there during hailstorms in March. So usually could weather then but not always and for hikers the snakes aren't out yet. Okay. Good snow. It's still too cold. It's warm enough for us. But not for the snakes, generally. Okay. That is always something to know. Couple of other things for kids. There's a children's museum I have not been there. So I cannot recommend it necessarily. But there is a zoo that our kids enjoyed when they were younger in Phoenix. That was quite fun. Some other things for kids to. But again, I don't trouble with kids either. So it's harder. But the zoo is the zoo is very nice. Yeah. US news World Report that put that in their fourth on the list, even above the Phoenix art museum, and some of the other places we've talked about they put it above the heard museum, which I know is fighting words for you. But. It's a zoo. It's a good sue though, I would recommend that more of the shoulder season. Or the winter in the summer that's going to be pretty warm. Yeah. I mean, that's generally true anything outdoors. You wanna to do even the end may? But for sure June through even I've been in there in late September. And it's still Ben really in the nineties hundred juries so early mornings or evenings. A really when you wanna be out. You wanna do stuff that's inside an air conditioned, every places are conditioned in Phoenix. It is a drier heat than you would find in the midwest east coast or the south like an oven. But it gets quite warm. So and there's you know, spas, golf courses and all sorts of other things that people go down to Phoenix for that. I'll let you look on your own anything else. We wanna tell people before we get to some of our wrap up questions, Cindy mentioned is that for looking for lodging in Phoenix that there's really some key places. If you wanted urban experience to stay downtown Phoenix downtown Scottsdale, or in one if for more laidback urban experience in one of the historic districts and Phoenix they actually have a lot of historic districts, and there's a Fairmont of Airbnb in them luxuries ORT s- up north in Scottsdale or the desert escapes out on the eastern edge of the metro area. You can find some spectacular places out there. Great views, and you can hike right out your door, and I should say that if you're looking at a map of Phoenix almost everything we covered other than some of the parks that we went out and hiked in were in the eastern part of that circle that I drew. Around Phoenix with highway one and highway ten almost everything we did was to the east of highway seventeen which runs north and south sort of in the center of Phoenix. We didn't talk about places like Sun City where a lot of the retirees are and some of that area. That's a little less. Interesting to me, unless you're really fond of astroturf lawns and things like that. We also didn't talk about Mesa and Tempe, which you say is where you stay. Is there anything we want to say about those areas? Why did you stay in the farther eastern part of Mesa or north on the mountains? But downtown Mesa is really starting to have a rebirth in his becoming an interesting arts area. They've done a lot of landscaping they've put in a beautiful art center. They have some historic buildings. They lost a lot of them. But they have some there's a historic neighborhood. So it's it's becoming a really attractive place to stay and are more little more urban stay, but not being in Phoenix. It's let cheaper than downtown Phoenix Scottsdale Tempe. I have not stayed in Tempe. But we've gone down there on the light rail we've stopped there few times to eat and check it out. And that is of course, where here's ONA state university is located that's probably the liveliest place in the Phoenix metro area right now, there's all sorts of bars and restaurants, and while lot of it's aimed at college students. Not all of it is. And it's become a real interesting urban placed the kind of hang out and eat do things and be out. Outside and they've got some great parks. And so again, that's more urban areas, especially for younger people. There's a lot more nightlife. It's I have been in restaurants in Phoenix and Mesa recently that eight thirty you're eating dinner in their starting to put the tables on the chairs on the tables and close up for the night. So. Do you wanna be a little later, Scottsdale or Tempe is probably your best place to go and look for a little bit of nightlife? Excellent. All right. You're standing in the prettiest spot in Phoenix where he's standing in. What are you looking at this is cheating? But I think the prettiest place in Phoenix any place where I can see Sura cactus silhouetted against the setting sun. Just my favorite thing. Can you a lot of places that is a lot of places? Can you think of one place in particular? I'm very partial to lost Dutch mistake part because you can see the swirl mountains on one side swore months, the superstition mountains on one side, and you can see Phoenix off in the distance. And you can have the best of everything. Excellent. One thing that makes you laugh and say only in Phoenix. It's the phones it's getting better. There are water features everywhere in Phoenix, just everywhere. And they recycle all the water. I understand that. It's reused water. And they reuse it for five times even before it gets in the fountains. But. It still seems just crazy to see all these cactuses growing alongside these beautiful ponds around the greenfields, and golf courses and lawns. It's just. It's crazy. Excellent. And if you had to summarize Phoenix in three words, what three words would use vibrant, artsy and Soweto. Excellent. Well, we did we did talking about the cactus is so much the one thing that may surprise you. If you're not from the area is how old these cactuses are because I think a sore cactus won't even get an arm a limit till it's like a hundred years old if I recall correctly. So if you see something up there that's got two three four arms as a cactus. It is hundreds of years old so beat, you know, be careful with them be gentle with them. But they are very interesting adapt Haitians of plants to grow in the area. They're only found in the Sonoran desert. So they're only found in the central southern Arizona into Mexico and in in Phoenix, UC them planted on the roadsides all over the place and just everywhere, but they're cool. They're so cool. If we wanted to send people to the best post on Phoenix on at exploration vacation dot net. What post would we send them to? I have a separate landing. Page for exploring Phoenix in the valley of the sun that has just some summaries, and that has links to a few other stories and things a lot of the places of talked about I haven't actually written about because it's I'm down there so often I don't get things written up.

AT#647 - Travel to Phoenix, Arizona

"The. The bag on a roll. Anna read it's go in real good pass board. Hammet traveler pursuit six hundred forty seven today. BMI traveler talks about art, museums and western culture, hikes petroglyphs and Sua cactus. As we go to Phoenix, Arizona. Walk. The amateur traveler your host, Chris Christensen. Let's talk about Phoenix. I'd like to welcome back to the show Cindy Carlson from exploration vacation dot net. Who has come to talk to us about Phoenix cine? Welcome to the show. I Chris thanks for having me or welcome back to the show said he was here about one hundred episodes ago. I was surprised it was that long ago talking about northern Vietnam. And if you haven't heard that episode I like that episode, obviously because otherwise she would be back. So Cindy, we're talking about a much more domestic destination this time in what's your connection with Phoenix? My now there's been down there about thirty years now. And so I've been going down there pretty regularly since about nineteen ninety five bending sometimes just a few days and sometimes spending even a couple of weeks down there exploring the area. Excellent. So she is a snowbird in the language of the area. Yes. My parents are snowbirds I'd snowbird if I could convince my husband to spend more time down there, but likes us books. Gets tad warm in the summer for me and Phoenix. And just so we know we usually don't talk about whether for a while. But one of the reasons lot of people come down in the wintertime, lovely lovely weather summertime. They'll get one hundred days in a row that will go of one hundred degrees Fahrenheit. So that just maybe something you think about we have a friend who moved to Phoenix because the summer's here in San Jose that only got two ninety were not hot enough for her. So if you like hot weather, that's definitely a good time to go lot more people there in the winter. And there's a lot to do. Actually, I haven't been there in the summer, but there's a lot to do in the summer inside. And there's actually water in rivers in floats and things I have a lot of friends that live there year round. And they actually say summers aren't always that bad. Right. Well, it depends. Again, what you like. And I do know that the friends who go out hiking tend to do it early in the morning in the summertime or or later in the evening usually early in the morning when it's the coolest time of day. But what kind of itenerary do? Recommend for us for Phoenix. So I tried to put together, and I worry that's really aimed at first time. Visitors to Phoenix it gives them an idea of what Phoenix is about where it came from what the landscapes like and what the people who've lived their past and present are like and it's geared. It's five days because five days seems to be to me a good amount of time to get a real feeling for Phoenix. Still leaves you enough time that if you want to spend time golfing or laying by the pool or you want to make a trip up to Grand Canyon, which I know you've covered on one a year previous shows, you can add that on and then it's a week's vacation and still do all the stuff that I'm recommending will you we won't talk quite as much about side trips. But there are a number different things if you head north or south either down to Tucson, we've done it episode on that or up to flagstaff area up to Grand Canyon or even to the north east corner of the state, we've got different shows about northern Phoenix. So we won't be talking about them now. But what should we do in Phoenix? Well, actually, let me back up a bit here. I should start with. Why should we go to Phoenix of all the places we should go to sell? I think Phoenix gets the bad rap as as a snowboard destination. Oh, it's just where the retirees because warm it's hot in the summer. Why would you ever go to Phoenix? And Phoenix, particularly in the last fifteen years twenty years, maybe now as really become a arts and culture hub. It's got a a thriving lively downtown great art scene. It has spectacular scenery all around the city with the Sonoran desert there. It's become a real interesting place to go. There's something there. I think for everyone, and it's really a worthwhile destination. There's a lot to see in Phoenix that you probably won't see and other places. The only part of that that I would show is that that has happened over the last ten or fifteen years because I've been going there at longer than that. And I think it's getting better known for that over the last ten fifteen years, I think that's been there for. In terms of the arts and culture. I think part of it is as light rail's come in. It's maybe it's more that expanded places like downtown Mesa that used to be really dead are now little art. Okay. And so maybe that's it because it's been building. It's I've always liked Phoenix. But I think it's really become something that a lot of people don't expect excellent. And we're should we start? So I'm going to suggest that people start by learning about the Sonoran desert by actually going out to the desert botanical garden, which is in northeast. It's a beautiful place as mechanical garden it, of course, has landscaped areas and non native plants, but it also has large areas of native plants. It's a great place to soak in the beauty of the desert and to learn about the desert, so that when you go hiking on your own, you know, that even those those Challah cactuses might look really friendly in fuzzy that to get near them. So it gives you both that introduction to the desert as well as beautiful place to wander. You can easily spend a few hours or half day there. They have a fabulous cafe. So it's a nice place to spend some time in the garden. And then wander to the cafe will want to make sure that we're talking about the same place because the desert botanical garden that I know is not in north Phoenix. It's on almost in Scottsdale. So it would be east of Phoenix. It's right on the border of Scottsdale and Phoenix that's not north Phoenix east, east Phoenix. Okay. And that's another thing. I should mention that. I have geographic dyslexia when it comes to Unix. So keen is because I miss a west when I really mean east it's over by Scottsdale, and it's beautiful. It's right at the foot of the mountains beautiful place to walk in wander. I happen to see it. The first time when there was a truly exhibit. So my experience there is quite different because there was all sorts of glass being shown at the same time. But what if place especially for kids to recommend our kids love the butterfly exhibit, for instance, there as well as some of the other. And they've actually redone the gardens since you've been there since the CIA Julia exhibit, and there are still still chew Hulas and some other sculptures in the garden. They do special events visitors coming into Phoenix should check the schedule and see they sometimes do big fun parties out in the garden at night and different things can be hard to get tickets to those. But there blast if you can get them. Excellent. So because that's not necessarily a full day. If you want to do a little more that day, I would continue on towards the west to the grandee museum, which it's a museum in an archaeological park, it's fairly small museum. But they do have really nice job of talking about the hokum people who live in the Phoenix area more than thousand years ago. They actually were the original ones building canals in the salt. River valley canals bring all Phoenix's water in today. But that actually goes back to ancient culture that lived there more than a thousand years ago. It's a nice little museum the archaeological site itself, isn't terribly into. Interesting. There's not a lot left, but the museum dozen nice job of introducing you to what this area was like in the people who live there a long time ago. The other alternative end out your first day would be if it's on a Thursday head over to Scottsdale and do evening art walk and have dinner down on the in the arts district in historic Scottsdale, which is a really fun place. And I'll talk about that a little more and went in the next day. We should say we haven't really even gone very far from the Phoenix harbor airport here for the first who stops does botanical gardens. The public grid museum are practically stone's throw from the airport. So we haven't ranged very far afield yet. This is all fairly easy to stone. So for Phoenix anyway, which is a gigantic Norma situ area. Geographically is a very large area geographically that's right for day to actually put together to different options, depending on visitors inter level of interest in native cultures or cowboy culture. I've got two different options won the won would. Be two and more about the people who live in the southwest today. And that would be a trip to the heard museum in downtown Phoenix even closer sky harbor airport. We haven't left really Phoenix at all for these. The today's the herd is both a cultural history and art museum about half the museum or more is devoted to exhibits on the peoples of the southwest with separate areas on each different culture, and both modern and historic pieces of art in basket tree in different daily aims daily life. The other part of the museum includes an exhibit which for in my part of the country is something people don't know as much about as the Indian boarding school era. They've just redone the exhibit. I haven't seen the new one. But the old one was both fascinating and really heartbreaking. But really really interesting again mostly history. But combining modern perspectives and information as well. And presenting it in a way. That's very very acceptable like the exempts really geared for both adults and for children in the area. You're talking about here is an era where they want to pending on how you how you look at this. They're the one side would say they wanted to include the native Americans in American culture, and therefore they wanted to inculturated them. And the other side would say that they wanted them to lose their identity as native Americans and inculturated them. But it was definitely at a very intentional move to bring them in to have the move away from their families to go to these boarding schools and two tournament white people would be the crude way of saying that. Yeah, it's very complicated history, and it's very painful history. And although it's mixed for some people that experience as much as it was it had some negative sides. Also, brought good things to them others found it just devastating. And they try to deal with all that in a really meaningful, and I think respectful way at the herd. The herd has it's mostly native curator's in. So they do a really nice job at dealing with those complicated issues. The other thing the heard is is a arts museum contemporary or more historic pieces of art, usually all native arts. The most recent show featured Yupik masks from Alaska combined with works by Matisse because he had used some of these masses inspiration in his work. Generally, though, the shows are focused on native arts native artists, the shows are always splendid really high high quality works. If you're at all interested in native art and the contemporary native art seeing the heard will have something spectacular. They have the finest collection. Definitely in the west and probably some of their collection is probably equal to some of the pieces the collection at the national museum of the American Indian. They really do a nice job with their show. Does depending how long you heard you have a couple other options for the day. You are right downtown at the heard you're in an old historic neighborhood. You're just north of the Phoenix art museum. The phoenix. Art museum has a lovely collection. They are pretty much the standard big city museum. They have a lovely collection. But it's it's not Phoenix specific for the most part, the exception to that is their photo exhibit draws from the Zona state university collection, and usually has some really interesting things in it. And they do spectacular spectacular special exhibits. So if you're an art person, you might just want to walk down the street and spend the rest of the day at Pam. I did forget to mention that at the heard have lunch before you leave the herd. They have a fabulous cafeteria then head onto whatever else. The Pam would be one of them the Phoenix art museum the other action. If you kind of had enough art for the day, or what a little smaller museum is to get in. Your car and head over to the smaller museum at the state capitals. The state capitalism. It's the old capitol building. They've preserved a few rooms in the building. But they have some really interesting exhibits in there. It's not very big. But they have a exhibit on the Zona the worship which was sunk in Pearl Harbor and some memorabilia from some of the survivors as well as this was news to me that all these ships have find China and silver and fancy settings like you get some Victorian dinner party, and they have all that unto splayed there as well. They also have some very interesting displays on the beginnings of AirAsia as a state in the establishment of the of the state, including the fact that Arizona kind of played a trick to get into the US as a state. They were required to change something in their provision for how they will how the handled their judges and resulted didn't like with the federal government wanted them to. Do. So they went ahead and did it to become a state. And then as soon as they were state, they went and undid it and did it the way they want it to. And the whole section on it. It's really quite interesting. So those are my day to number one my action number two is to go back up. If you haven't been discussed to go to Scottsdale and do western spirit. I don't know. Have you been to western spirit in Scottsdale? Chris I do not know where you speak of with western. Still. But well, this isn't relatively new museum. It's maybe five years old at the most they're trying to capture the full extent of the the life and population changes in the west, and it has several components that it's a fine art museum more than a history museum. Although it does have historic pieces. One piece of the museum is a cowboy collection or western collection that has things like Spurs and saddles and all the things you'd expect in like a cowboy museum or an old west museum except most of the pieces were collected because of their artistic value more so than as artifacts of the old west that's a fun place for kids. But it's it's kind of cool for everybody because they have all this stuff. And you start looking at it. And you're like, wow, I never knew Spurs could be that interesting. But they can be part of museums fine. Art, mostly they've been expanding what they've been showing. They usually always have a big section by a prominent bronze artists who does away art in features native Americans, although he's not native American himself. They've added now a western movie poster collection that they acquired so there's usually some sort of western movie themed exhibit. They've also added a collection of Hopi classic historic and contemporary, but mostly historic Hopi pottery that they always have some of undisposed, and then they have some other traveling exhibits they've had western cartoons. They've had the towels painters different things very much art based most of the first floor is very much art based except for the movie posters in the western cowboy things the second floor has to Perm semi permanent exhibits one of which saved Alaska's. It's kind of. Zossen? It's a fine. It's interesting. He's laughing. It's a fine art exhibit. That tells the story of the settlement of the west and meeting of the natives and the Anglos as they started settling the west, it's a big Zabit. And it's interesting, but more interesting as the other half, which has mostly has some fine art, but it mostly has more what we would consider artifacts and objects. So it has some artifacts and things from the Lewis and Clark exhibition. It has collection of spectacular chief's blankets. It has a bunch of Curtis. And they've changed this since I was there. The first time of Curtis original Curtis images of native Americans and showing all the different printing presses he used which was something. I had never seen the goal tones in some of that before. And so that was really interesting. It's got a fabulous mix of items and again, very large exhibit.

Well, it's interesting that's in Scottsdale because of the city's Phoenix there's Phoenix downtown, and we didn't say, but there's all sorts of different places. We'll be talking about around it including Scottsdale to the east and Scottsdale. I would say of the places that I have been in the area is the most cowboy town the downtown Scottsdale has more cowboy art exhibits in stores and things like that and has more of that western heritage. I think they call themselves the most western town in the west. And it's love downtown scout till it's an arty town with this western heritage. And my grandfather actually was a cowboy so I have a fondness for the. Western heritage. We have his Spurs. He was on the last round up in Colorado when he was sixteen he busted broncs being. So I have some connection to this. Although I myself am not a coupla. I would say to if you're bringing kids along in being a western museum Alday seems like that might be the seventh layer of hell for you. You might. Instead if you wanna get in touch with the western heritage take them up to rawhide, which is a wonderfully touristy cheesy. Western recreation town in northern Scottsdale that is more of a kid friendly way to look at some of the western culture. And glad you added that I have not been to rawhide. I was looking at that the other day going I have to get up there. I took my kids there as as a kid. We join it. I mean, it's touristy it's cheesy. But it's great western spirit has some sections for kids and the western area part of it is Scott some good stuff. But both the heard and western spirit. Are pretty adult oriented museums. And glad you mentioned the old town Scottsdale because that would be my other recommendation as once you finish western spirit is actually right along that area where all the galleries an auction houses and studios and things are and they've got that fixed up as a mall. You can go down you can walk into some window shopping. You can go in the galleries. There's a whole range of art. There's the western art. But now there's a lot non western themes done by western artists contemporary artists than there was a few even a few years ago. There's a lot of good restaurants there. No problem finding someplace to eat. Did you have one you would recommend? I was looking to see if there were any that I could recommend, but none are occurring to me cafe forte. Mr. right down on that end in. It's a lovely lovely spot. They do very beautiful dinners and nice lunches. There. We've eaten there couple times. It's not a budget place, but it's not super expensive either. And also for art lovers if you really into art and want something different. If you feeling a little overwhelmed by native and western art, the Scottsdale contemporary art, gallery is down at the end of the mall in that is completely different small small small museum only usually four maybe five exhibits on installations more often, but really interesting edgy stuff. So if you want a little change of pace, that's a good place to walk down to and see what's happening. And as I mentioned Thursdays. Are there aren't night? Most of the year. They have galleries are open late to museums. They're open late things are free. Most of the things are free, and you can walk around, and it's kind of event, and it's a lot of fun to do something like that were to next day three. I think it's time to get out in the Sonoran desert a little farther. I'd recommend taking a hike. Phoenix is a great city for hiking or biking more just getting out endanger, you can hike right in the city of Phoenix. As you go towards the edges of Phoenix. You have the mountain parks, which are spectacular. There's some some parks that we've that we've really really liked because they have a nice mix of trails and fabulous scenery include the mountain parks right in town and yourself thinking of the Phoenix mountains, preserve. I'm thinking of all of those north so user mountain park Dowell park farther out is lost further out. Okay. The problem with the parks like doing the Camelback hike is that you're there with ten thousand other people. So Camelback so there are places to hike inside the city I've been in Phoenix mountain preserve which is an easy hike. And then there's Camelback mountain which is between Phoenix and Scottsdale, which is a much more strenuous hike, but a very popular hike, especially to go up there for sunrise is a very popular thing to do. But yeah, it is more popular while you can get around Phoenix proper Phoenix and Mesa Tempa without a car because of the light rail, you cannot get Scottsdale on the light rail, but you can get to the others Phoenix is so much easier with a car, and if you have a car like I say north cave creek has that's a beautiful park. It's not too far out of the city. If you're staying up in Scottsdale, I generally stay on the east end of the city. I generally stay way out in Mesa the eastern end may so or in Apache junction and from their lost Dutchman state park is just stunningly beautiful Usery mountain state usury mountain recreation area, there's a number of trails out there that are. Tackler and take you right up into the edge of the superstition mountains. So you have the desert and you have the mountains. And when flowers are in bloom, it's just it's a gorgeous area. Do you have particular trail you recommend the to remember? Well, there's chew suggestions one is just about any of the lower trails in Las Dutchman are fabulous. They're beautiful. And then there's a trail if you wanna go all the way out to gold canyon, which is at that far edged the mountains at the Phoenix area. There's a trail out there called the hieroglyphics trail, which has it's a not too difficult on though, I haven't been out there in a few years, but it's still open. It's not too difficult trail that leads out to a basin where there's sometimes waterfall. There's always usually a pool, and then there's petroglyphs on all the cliffside some of them you walk right past the first time, I was out there. We were looking for the petroglyphs in. We were looking so hard for them thinking, they'd be hard to find that we. We actually walked by them. I turned around at some point and looked at my girlfriend in the petroglyphs like over her shoulder right there where you could touch them. So that's a spectacular hike in. It's not a terribly hard hike. Please don't damage the petroglyphs and don't touch them while you're out there 'cause you could date that damages the the artwork, but that's a spectacular hike on that end say we've gone out cave creek in the north has really some wonderful, easy, easy hikes. Kimba Wimpy hiker these days. So. But I would spend the day and just take your time and do one of the parks and enjoy the desert again if you're out there in the spring, the flowers in the desert are spectacular just spectacular. So that's my day. Three is Spencer timeout in for hiking around or in the mountain forests are in the desert area hiking around day four I'm going to suggest something that has nothing to do with Phoenix. Except that it's the only place you'll find this. And that is the musical instrument museum. Good. I was gonna get there. If you didn't. And it's not the only place you'll find it. But we'll talk about the game hoping to see the other one to spring. So the musical instrument museum ignored the name. It's a music museum. The name. There are instruments in the museum. So that is not an accurate. Isn't the totality of the museum? It's really about music and the people who make music as well as the instruments it's experiential in that you put on a set of headphones as you walked through the museum, and as you look at an exhibit. If you turn to watch a classic performance on video you'll hear all the sound over your headphones. If you go up and look at Bali's instruments as you look at the gamma you'll start to hear the Gammel on play in your headphones. If you're watching classic rock somewhere again, you'll hear the sometimes nation, but usually it's just the music. It's a fascinating Newseum to go through in the shows. They have their special exhibits include things like women's Rackers, costumes, or we went to that was it was an art exhibit. I don't remember what they called it. But it was like dragons vines, and it was all the inlay guitars and musical instruments from around the world from the US. It was just an incredibly beautiful show. You've been there. Chris. Wouldn't you say that there's something there for absolutely everybody? I have not been there. My wife has been there to this one. I have been to the one that inspired it in Brussels. But I have not been to this one yet. Oh, will you need to get there? It's unbelievably fun. And it takes leave a lot of time. We left about three hours to do the museum. We took my mother there, and we figured she'd be bored in three hours, and she wasn't board, and we weren't bored in the museum was closing. And so we were very disappointed that we had left more time. That's the same thing. I heard from oh if it was a trip where I drove back from Phoenix, San Jose, California, which is home for me and my wife, flew back. So she had a little more time that to to go and explore in what with reservoirs thoroughly enjoyed it. Yeah. It is a very good reputation. But personally been there I'm gonna check out the one in Brussels spring. I hope so I can compare the two, but I was very very impressed and for lovers of more world music or more. Interesting things, you don't usually see in concerts. They have a beautiful beautiful studio concert space. They're and they do full range of form Ince's through the winter at least. And so if you're heading to town, you can check out and see there might be something really unusual there that you are unlikely to hear somewhere else than it's beautiful space to hear music in. Excellent. Well, you're out in kind of out in that end of of Scottsdale. I think it is it's way north in Scottsdale. So maybe it is gut feeling Notre kind of Scottsdale Phoenix somewhere over there. The trip me up because most things just say Phoenix in the address. And so you're not really sure there is a loop of highways that kind of to me defines the main part of town. And e this is one a one on the north and ten on the south, and this is the northeast corner of that loop. It's out ways compared to the other places we've talked about while you're there. It's further west steel for something again, a little different. But now only probably in Phoenix, there's a place called the deer valley petroglyphs do valley petroglyphs, preserve. There are petroglyphs had mentioned on the hieroglyphics trail. There's actually petroglyphs you can see on the south mountain hike, but deer valley has a whole hillside boulders with hundreds and hundreds of petroglyphs they have a interpretive center that talks about the petroglyphs attacks about the area settlement in the area. It's a really pleasant little site. And if you're like me, really bad at spotting petroglyphs, these are even if you can't find them. I don't know how you couldn't there right in front of you. But they have volunteers out there to help you see the petroglyphs little show you where they are in point them out. So if you wanna see petroglyphs this it's handicapped accessible, it's an easy place to see a little bit more about the history of the area and see these ancient petroglyphs, it's in some really interesting spot. And it's a good extra spot. Run to if you're out at the music musical instrument museum, because it's kind of in that corner of more inner urban area. So for my last day. I am proposing that you leave that civilized Phoenix area behind and head out into the superstition mountains superstitions are on the east. They kind of the east border of the Phoenix area. Beautiful rugged mountains. They don't look like there is rugged as they actually are. There's a roadway into the superstitions historic roadway called the Apache trail. It's if you go out to Lou loss Dutchman and some of the mountain parks out that direction you go right on the patchy trailer up to it for a while on the Apache trail, the first half of the trail is a paved road. It's very scenic. But it's pretty good condition. It's an easy drive. Anyone can drive it. A good half day trip would be to take the trail out to canyon lake in take a cruise on the steamboat Dolly, which will take you down into. Along canyon lake and into its back in early backwaters, but the little offshoots canyon lake is a reservoir. It's Switzer flooded. Canyon has steep cliffs, lots of desert scenery, you might even see some some big horn sheep some wildlife while you're out. It's just a really pleasant little cruise either before after the Dalai, you should continue down the road to tortilla flat. Which is a either restored revived ghost town or a rebuilt completely rebuilt. Ghost town, the original tortilla, flat mostly burned down many many many years ago, they have a little restaurant out there. There's a teensy tiny museum. The restaurant is actually fairly good. It's really good. But it's very western themed, you know, saddles for barstools, and that sort of thing it's an interesting quirky place with decent food makes a really good stop fro either before or after your crews when you go there. It's about a half day trip to go out do the cruise. Have a meal, it tortilla flats and then drive back for the more adventurous, the fun part of the road starts after tortilla flat. Skip the cruise unless you want a really long day, but you could do both once you pass tortilla flat. You you get to a hill. And when you go down the hill the road turns dirt, it's basically the same unpaved road. It was in nineteen thirty six when it was last used as a the main highway between Apache junction, we'll between Phoenix and Payson and you are stepping back in time. It's one lane in some places. If you make it through fish creek through the steep descent, the twists the blind the one lane blind curbs and that area than the rest of the road is pretty drivable. Always check the weather before you go to make sure the road isn't in terrible shape or washed out from Raines was recently graded the last time we were out there. There are some guardrails there are a lot of guardrails because it's a historic road. The apparently can't do much to widen it or improve it. It, but that's part of the adventure. It's a stunning drive. It's a dusty drive. There are some some places to stop where you can admire. The senior admire the wealth lowers there's actually another lake further down Apache lake. There's a little resort marina down there. When you get to the end of the road. There's a big dam area which creates another lake Roosevelt lake which is a big recreation area. And once you get all the way to the end, and it's only about twenty five miles on the unpaved portion, but plan at least an hour or more to drive that part. You cannot drive it over about thirty miles an hour, most of it. And some of it is a lot slower than that. You don't need a high clearance vehicle most of the time, it's not a bad idea. But you can drive it most of the time in a sedan without any problem. But for the adventurous drivers, it's a gorgeous drive when you get to the end, you can stop and take a break at Roosevelt lake, and then you either can go back the way you came or. There's a state highway that runs through the it's the tunnel. National forests, it's a lovely area. Partly desert, partly forested and takes you back down south to down in globe and coming across globe and superior. There's another botanical garden down there that spectacular. If you want to do some more flowers if you're there and flower season, you can tell my thing is flour season. So flower season would be early spring starting in various by year. But usually starting late February, Pat, the poppies sometimes mid February. But March is really marching into early April is usually when the flowers and this year offensive your listeners are thinking about going. This should be a great year for flowers. They've had a lot of rain this winter at should be really really beautiful through most of it's already the starting to bloom even through all March should be really really nice and at the weather's beautiful March is the high season, and we'll get into that in a little bit. Because there's a reason why it's the high season if the high part of the high season actually the winter is the high season go ahead. You're you're talking about flowers though, that Dr gives you some spectacular flowers the hallway when you come down in when you get down. It's Boyce Thompson arboretum down in superior, which is again at far far southeastern edge of the the Phoenix metro area. It's really I would. Consider it part of the Phoenix metro area. But technically it actually is. It's a spectacular drive in that garden is spectacular to Seoul. That's the nice it'd be a full day at a someone wants to do something like that gets you out of town and let get you out into the desert, which is sort of nice. If you're in spending all of your time right in the Phoenix area. That's only five days. There's other things you could do I did not mention tally Essen, which is Frank Lloyd Wright's Greenwich that Yuka. Winter residents. It's a very interesting place to tour. I think it's an interesting place to tour if you're an architecture geek, which I happen to be I not sure that I would recommend it for anybody. Who's not a real fan of architecture? But if you are a, yeah, this is a very major site. In fact, it is on the list of possible UNESCO world heritage site as a multi site portion about Frank Lloyd Wright, oh, I didn't realize that. Yeah. No. I would agree that you need to be an architecture fan and partly because it's quite expensive to tour. It's not a budget tour, and you have to buy to to do it for architecture fans in general Phoenix is a great city because developed so much in the forties, and particularly the fifties and sixties, so it's unbidden century modern stuff everywhere, they do a mid century modern week in March. There's just lots and lots of interesting architecture from that period as well as some really interesting modern the lot of the civic buildings that were built. Twenty thirty years ago or more recently are just really spectacular both in Phoenix. And in Scottsdale in particular, the western spirit in Scottsdale is an architecture. Very interesting building with a lot of sustainability features interesting. Interesting features, there's a Pam the Phoenix. Art museum is a real interesting building. There's a lot of really interesting buildings. But for Frank Lloyd Wright fans, this is one of the big ones. The other thing. I didn't mention is for fans of either western art in general, art, or native American Arthur's a museum down in Chandler called the Basha collection. And it was the private collection of Eddie Basha who runs the who. At one point ran the Basha grocery stores, and it's not curated the same way the say the heard or western spirit is but for someone who's interested in that sort of art, it's an amazing collection. He'll have he has in some cases, hundreds of pieces by the same artists. You can see like your. Development style through time. It's a large collection in unlike most things and Phoenix for most museums. It's totally free only when weekdays, but it's an interesting thing. Most people don't know about the last one I'd add that people should maybe think about is the superstition mountain museum, which is a little more informal than most of the other museums. I've mentioned it's at the base of the superstitions where the Apache trail starts they have some really cool mining memorabilia pieces while not huge equipment. They have some historic buildings and some historic looking buildings. So they've set up kind of like an old mining town. And it's very atmospheric in the location stunning. It's a beautiful beautiful location. The other thing that we haven't talked about is why March is so busy in Phoenix. And it's going to be one of the more expensive times to go and that spring training if you were a baseball fan, the number one reason that I have been a Phoenix over the last twenty years or so is to go down for spring training. We're half of the American baseball teams. Well, half of the American US and Canadian will end up in Phoenix and the other half in Florida, and you could go down and see half the teams play in general, and how cheap it is depends on where you go. If you go to Scottsdale stadium where the giants play you'll pay as much as you will for game that you see in San Francisco, but on the other hand, if you go out to Glendale or Peoria to one of the other stadiums where some of the mid western teams are playing you can sometimes see a game for really cheap a game and a hotdog and can be quite a fun experience to go and see a number of the different teams all in a short period of time. Which is why it is. So popular will be a little more expensive to go that time of year. But that is a big draw in Phoenix in spring training starts in February and then finished his March. Yeah. And. Really it's March. That's the the big thing. Because that's when they start playing more games the pitchers catchers reported mid-february. So that is something that we have been down for many times and is good fun. But again, a little more expensive get friends to stay with. That's a great time to go but lights are going to be a little more hotels going to be a little more hotels early challenge and rental cars. I don't know if you guys fly drive, but I have been there in March where there has not been a rental car available in Phoenix believe that. Yeah. I mean, it seems as ING, but it's it's true because of the spring training, and all there is a lot of marches probably Phoenix's month for the best weather the entire year. It is a great time to be there. Usually I have also been there during hailstorms in March so easily could weather then but not always and for hikers the snakes aren't out yet. Okay. Good to know. It's still too cold. It's warm enough for us. But not for the snakes, generally. Okay. That that is always something. Couple things other things for kids. There's a children's museum I have not been there. So I cannot recommend it necessarily. But there is a zoo that our kids enjoyed when they were younger in Phoenix that was quite fun some other things for kids to but again, I don't travel with kids either. So it's harder. But the zoo is the zoo is very nice. Yeah. US news World Report that put that in their fourth on the list, even above the Phoenix art museum, and some of the other places we've talked about they put it above the heard museum, which I know is fighting words for you. But. It's a zoo. It's a good soon though. I would recommend that more of the shoulder season or the winter in the summer that's going to be pretty warm. Yeah. I mean, that's generally true anything outdoors. You wanna do even the end may? But for sure June through even I've been in their late September. And it's still Ben really in the nineties hundred degrees. So early mornings or evenings. A really when you wanna be out. You wanna do stuff that's inside an air conditioned, every places are conditioned in Phoenix. It is a drier heat than you would find in the midwest east coast or the south like an oven. But it gets quite warm. So and there's you know, spas, golf courses and all sorts of other things that people go down to Phoenix for that. I'll let you look on your own anything else. We wanna tell people before we get to some of our wrap up questions, Cindy mentioned is that for looking for lodging in Phoenix that there's really some key places. If you wanted urban experience to stay downtown Phoenix downtown Scottsdale, or in one for more laidback urban experience in one of the historic districts and Phoenix they actually have a lot of historic districts, and there's a Fairmont of Airbnb is in them luxuries arts up north in Scottsdale or the desert escapes out on the eastern edge of the metro area. You can find some spectacular places out there. Great views, and you can hike right out your door, and I should say that if you're looking at a map of Phoenix almost everything we covered other than some of the parks that we went out and heighten were in the eastern part of that circle that I drew. Around Phoenix with highway one and highway ten almost everything we did was to the east of highway seventeen which runs north and south sort of in the center of Phoenix. We didn't talk about places like Sun City where a lot of the retirees are and some of that area. That's a little less. Interesting to me, unless you're really fond of astroturf lawns and things like that. We also didn't talk about Mesa and Tempe, which you say is where you stay. Is there anything we want to say about those areas? Why did you stay in the farther eastern part of Mesa or north on the mountains? But downtown Mesa is really starting to have a rebirth in his becoming an interesting arts area. They've done a lot of landscaping they've put in a beautiful art center. They have some historic buildings. They lost a lot of them. But they have some there's a historic neighborhood. So it's it's becoming a really attractive place to stay and are more little more urban stay, but not being in Phoenix. It's let cheaper than downtown Phoenix Scottsdale Tempe. I have not stayed in Tempe. But we've gone down there on the light rail we've stopped there few times to eat and check it out. And that is of course, we're on a state university is located that's probably the liveliest place in the Phoenix metro area right now, there's all sorts of bars and restaurants in while lot of it's aimed at college students. Not all of it is and it's become a real interesting urban place, the kind of hang out and eat and do things and be. Outside and they've got some great parks. And so again, that's more urban areas, especially for younger people. There's a lot more nightlife. It's I have been in restaurants in Phoenix and Mesa recently that eight thirty you're eating dinner in their starting to put the tables on the chairs on the tables and close up for the night. So. If you want to be a little later, Scottsdale or Tempe is probably your best place to go and look for a little bit of nightlife. Excellent. All right. You're standing in the prettiest spot in Phoenix where he standing in. What are you looking at this is cheating? But I think the prettiest place in Phoenix is any place where I can see Sura cactus silhouetted against the setting sun. Just my favorite thing. Can you a lot of places that is a lot of places? Can you think of one place in particular? I'm very partial to lost Dutch mistake part because you can see the swirl mountains on one side swore months, the superstition mountains on one side, and you can see Phoenix off in the distance. And so you can have the best of everything. Excellent. One thing that makes you love and say only in Phoenix. It's the phones it's getting better. There are water features everywhere in Phoenix, just everywhere. And they recycle all the water. I understand that. It's reused water. And they reuse it for five times even before it gets in the fountains. But. It still seems just crazy to see all these cactuses growing alongside these beautiful ponds around the greenfields, and golf courses and lawns. It's just. It's crazy. Excellent. And if you had to summarize Phoenix in three words, what three words would use vibrant, artsy and Suru. Excellent. Well, we did we did talking about the cactus is so much the one thing that may surprise you. If you're not from the area is how old these cactuses are because I think oral cactus won't even get an arm a limit till it's like one hundred years old if I recall correctly. So if you see something up there that's got two three four arms as a cactus. It is hundreds of years old so beat, you know, be careful with them be gentle with them. But they are very interesting adapt Haitians of plants that grow in the area. Yeah. And they're only found in the Sonoran desert. So they're only found in the central southern Arizona into Mexico and in in Phoenix, UC them planted on the roadsides all over the place and just everywhere, but they're cool. They're so cool city if we wanted to send people to the best post on Phoenix on at exploration vacation dot net. What post would we send them to? I have a separate landing. Page for exploring Phoenix in the valley of the son that has just some summaries, and that has links to a few other stories and things a lot of the places of talked about I haven't actually written about because it's I'm down there so often I don't get things written up.

your mind that toll free number is eight five five four five zero three seven three three which you tonight it's aria and jay and it's difficult to find these utah bax that we were talking about you can order them from various places but they are really cool and it is carrying around foldable liquid gold backed currency it is gold currency actual gold yeah it's a special process i know silver dave is actually really contemplating like melting a few down to extract the gold because it's like i guess a lot of trouble i mean it's already there and ready to go it's like a verification test you wants to do because he don't trust anybody okay and so i'm not hi sir will ever do it because it's like oh we gotta basically trash a whole bunch of gold not the idea is that you would be able to somehow melt it down and and from what what i understand is what it was like sprayed onto a polymer paper to think about gold's is really really valuable so you can take an ounce of gold and make a wire i don't know a couple miles long and very very very thin or something i mean they do it so i use it computers conduct swell right and you could just you know you can do a plate plate plate things in gold to where it's like you know two hundred thousands of an inch thick the gold and and it makes a ver very a very reliable connection you know computer stuff so the entire russian government has resigned to get back to this story do you still have it pulled up in front of you i'm getting it there all right right we're not exactly sure why but it seems to be because putin wants to extend his grasp on power yeah they're saying despite a constitutional ban currently in effect preventing him from running for more than two consecutive terms it appears a bid for him to hand pick a new government and enact act reforms that could weaken his future successor president vladimir putin on wednesday propose a nationwide vote on sweeping constitutional national changes that would shift power from presidency to parliament and the prime minister and a mood has a role that he has fulfilled and the past right he has been prime minister of russia does what the article says i wasn't aware of that until i read this i don't really pay attention to russia like i said i remember remember going through this entire thing a few years ago probably six to eight years ago where he was going to resign he was no longer going to be president and he did did he became prime minister and then before anybody knew what was going on he was president again so like 'cause they were talking doc in years ago bill clinton geek and run for president again there's nothing says you know you can only do to turn you can do two consecutive terms or two terms is the limit but what if you sit out of a couple of terms and then come back so it kind of sounds like he did someone can constitution actually permits that now because we did have that president whose name tom escapes me and i'm going to get criticized for not remembering every little detail american history ayar right yeah he ran for three terms they weren't consecutive so it didn't count but the constitution was changed to prevent anyone else from doing that are always so now down you bring this up so i do remember when i was in high school you know clinton was was president and they were talking about him running after he this was like more propaganda was probably being pushed by the cool school system to cher get the clinton back there something i'm not really sure but anyways yeah getting back to putin giving more power to presidency tendency in parliament and the prime minister a move that could allow him to extend his rule after leaving the kremlin rotor routers there's a reuters comments medved said the government resignation means putin will decide the new government's makeup after which is going to rewrite the russian constitution and decide how is going to be formed he proposed a a national nationwide vote on sweeping constitutional changes so sounds like a half my half to be voted on but but the entire government resigned so who is going to vote to i guess i mean it's just putin they got up and they like getting out of his way so he can give himself the power that he wants since i'm getting yeah that's what it sounds like to me it's like all right we'll let you do what you want we're leaving and that way we can't look like the bad guys we're just gonna leave i mean just kind of was that way they won't get murdered presumably by maybe putin's secret service or the russian equivalent or hillary clinton i mean you know i mean there's all these oh she hated putin she was the two thousand sixteen election was an interesting one i was so focused on hillary clinton and her obvious desire to start a war with russia that i they completely missed the fact that trump wanted to war with china she was so extravagant in her claims saying in one of the debates says she would actually invade russia that i completely missed the fact that trump yeah we're gonna fight china there's a clip where she said when i'm president we are going to war with iran she actually said i mean they've wanted war with iraq for a very long time well they i've just listened to some stuff about iran iran how you know the CIA one of their what they're claiming now is one of their first actually tulsi gabbard dennis kostanic and i forget the other guy we're having a talk on this couple of days ago on how on a history of of this iran deal and it was a CIA when an errand you know basically we destabilize the country in the fifties within a matter of a couple of weeks and also the american the american government essentially seized or shut down their in their bank in new york time in iran ended up defaulting on i don't know some kind of payment of some sort which further helped destabilize awesome and then in the was it the the shah was in installed by essentially the CIA and it became a you know this is where where a lot of this muslim radical jihadists stuff started popping up because this guy wasn't extremist at the united states put in there because they they want to control of the resources they wanted you know british petroleum was very instrumental in making sure that that oil was essentially controlled and then there's the whole the petro dollar and his stat and then there was a revolution i guess seventy nine or something in the american government don't like the people who've been there air sense yeah it's a mess and we should just leave leave everyone alone that would be ideal trade with everybody you don't fight with anybody it's just like the free market handle things which is essentially what we do when we sell bitcoin to people in iran and china and hong kong long and anytime i absolutely know for a fact that i have sold bitcoin to chinese national good yeah the united proud of that fact that that is great chinese government for it yes screw off for it i mean the fact that we that people doing peer to peer transactions whatever it may be and bitcoin is easiest and simplest appear transaction you can do because we don't have to meet in person you know we don't have to know each other nope i can literally trade with someone on the other side of the world know governments involved and these transactions are what is i believe will it really helps bringing the war machine down we have to to start trading outside of the dollar i mean can you imagine if the US government had to pay soldiers in bitcoin so my mom said this to me one day it would cost be asking how are we going to acquire this amount of bitcoin we can't force people to pay taxes into it because we can't track it so we have to have these these lotteries unreas- and things like that to raise money and it's never going to cover the cost of these twelve trillion dollars wars right and that's designed that's why we like bitcoin i got into my mom years ago and stocking about bitcoin she's like what's the government's supposed to pay the troops and bitcoin says yeah that'd be good because they couldn't pay the troops and he couldn't go over there and start murdering farmers in afghanistan you know because they're not interested in growing opium got GMO opium plant like monsanto style i don't know if monsanto created but like monsanto engineer i'm sure out on santo pest-resistant soda can i i afghanistan says covered in heroin essentially wasn't under the taliban almost entirely eliminated opium from afghanistan right united states government was we need this a pumping into russia so we're going to take over and we're going to restore the opium fields so we need a pump it into the united states to because if you have a loved one that's a junkie guess

fest dot party again that's fork fest dot party so talking about russia here yes and just the bizarre the nature of things going on russia and how envious we are as anarchist's to see the entire russian government resign yeah i i mean if you look at russia versus united states seventy years ago and today the roles if you just look at the financial situation and if you look at the amount of n even the social the social situation the roles of russia and the united states today seventy years ago has flipped and so russia had you know very high debt almost no gold reserves and what essentially in the nineteen fifties he's nineteen sixties or whatever what essentially caused russia to collapse was a couple things one thing was the fact that didn't really have any gold didn't have any real money back then and the russian currency their fiat with the others rupel the the world just essentially turner back on it and they really couldn't do anything being in the eighties well but the west dead pickiest was more accurate capitalism versus communism thing that was going on then so the european union the european central bank in its puppets and and the federal reserve and its popular cow we're not gonna do anything with this russian rubel so and essentially because because there was there was there was gold behind it it it you know nobody really us anymore did make a point at any point us on the international level and and their money hyperinflated and when i was in first grade nineteen eighty six i remember sitting in a classroom their role the TV into the classroom and they brought other classes in there and they i said are we live in a free country look look what's going on in russia because of communism because of their building their military and putting their money into into the military i was in first grade and there is a reporter talking to a guy who's got a wheelbarrow full of money and it was enough money a couple years ago to buy a house and he was hoping it would buy a loaf of bread and this was when i was a little kid we've seen the same thing in the united states has been slower and a little bit less drastic well so he so in russia they had generations and generations of entitled people who because under socialism eliza or communism whatever you wanna call it built the same thing as far as i'm concerned i russia the government control the means of production so it was oh you're going to do this you're going to do do that and this is how it is and so what happened is there was no incentive for anybody to make a profit there was no incentive for anybody to get out there and do anything because because the government controlled on means of production you can't just go start a business on your own from what i understand and i could be wrong well you can't do that here in the united states as well well it's certainly very much like i mean i do that there are there are people who do that but this is where i say the social roles have flipped so when russia shove really collapsed what had happened is droves of people who were hungry and starving and who who are third and fourth generation of people who didn't really know how to work because the government always told them what job to go to and kind of instruct them and they got a paycheck whether they did a job right or not whatever the job was dr got paid the same as the garbage man is what was told to me when i was a little kid by my grandfather russia russia the way it worked these people move just basically went and looted and destroyed anybody that seemed like they had any wealth so the guy who had to jewelry shopper opera the watchmaker or the furniture craftsman or whoever their own people end up killing him wipe them out and then they went out to the farms and a lot of the farmers there was no way they defend their farm first off they were unarmed and you know and the people that did this were are i'm going to compare them to the people that are most lee lee in inner city america who are walking around the local grocery store on welfare day in new hampshire go to any grocery store on a fifth in a month and nate is just loaded with a whole bunch people you never seen that grocery store any other data month because that's when the welfare cards could recharge on a fifth and you go there and these are people that go hungry and a lot of them to me look like they couldn't change a tire they've never gotten greasy they probably never broke a sweat and then some of them are grandmothers grandmother's and and legitimately disabled people are those that are real victims but when he's able bodied people that don't work because they don't know how they don't know how to be proactive because they went to school for some nonsense like underwater basket weaving or whatever when they get hungry they're go take it from whoever they think has it so if like you're the guy with a nice house in the nice car they're probably coming there for example that's essentially what happened russia the other thing that the US has also happened during the french revolution is happened everywhere we have these generations of people who just don't have any desire desire to build their own stuff where where when a free market is eliminated i mean what's the point in doing something of it's all gonna be taken from you yeah yeah i mean i know people who are my age that's always been the issue with you know these hippie communes and things like that they're not really they're attracting the burned out engineers here's bundy's burned-out scientists and things like that they're not attracting the engineers right the scientists the doctors the lawyers well we don't need lawyers shoot them all right but the the professional people not attracting those and a lot of the professional people today are these you know they're the only reason to have a professional because they're involved in what i call the parasite class you know they're working in government oh i got a doctor in art or a master's in art so i go make eighty thousand dollars a year teaching kindergarteners how to finger paint it it just doesn't make any sense and the other flip on the financial side but the flip between russian united states is right now russia has a lot of gold and they have not not much debt so they're like ounces of gold to debt ratios like something like six thousand dollars according to max kaiser and he was talking about some reports and also also according to like an m three report issued by the federal reserve bank of new york that the united states debt to gold ratio is essentially about seventy thousand dollars an now if you take the amount of gold that the united states allegedly has on deposit in fort knox and that's allegedly allegedly compared to the debt is like seventy thousand dollars an ounce the roles both socially and financially of the united states russia between today and a half a century ago have literally flipped and that's not going to end well for the tate's do you ever feel like you're in jail virtual jail because of your job or maybe your current relationship where you're not allowed to

this kentucky student who was expelled from a private christian in school over a rainbow shirt and cake no i haven't but that schools should have the right to do that i agree it's super entertaining how upset people are about a louisville kentucky high school student coming to us from fox news is claiming that she was expelled over a photo of her posing with her birthday cake because the cake and these sweater she was wearing were both decorated with rainbows if she's correct that's an odd thing to get expelled over especially for a high school girl right they like rainbows and unicorns puppies season crap i mean my wife wear shirts like that my five year old niece wears shirts we just had a baby shower and there was like you know mosman it's been eight people ladies wearing and young girls wearing shirts that fit that description i got baby close up at description so the private christian school denies the allegations and says that there's more to it than that so kayla kinney was celebrating her fifteenth birthday with family with her family when her mom snapped a photo of her smelling with her cake and posted the picture on facebook she was happy she looked beautiful the mother said the mother said that shortly after she posted the photo she was contacted by the head of whitefield academy who informed her that kenny who had had been attending the private school for four years was expelled because of the social media post and presumably it's because the ah the rainbow is a symbol adopted by LGBT culture yeah i mean they should be mad at the kid if they if they will for having a rainbow if anything these guys should should be mad at you know the LGBT culture for adopting the rainbow i mean children have love rainbows before the LGBT folks this is really i drove by churches morning it in concord was a big rainbow flag out there and it said all are welcome here i mean there's one of those in front of the studio here let's say it's not rainbow but i mean it's it's an anti-racism sign come to think about it but it's all are welcome here yeah it was a big banner said all are welcome here and it was something something baptist church and was it i don't know i shouldn't say i don't know it was some some church catholic looking christine ish type church and and i drove by it and i was like oh those guys are cool they don't hate anybody i mean you know it's a nice gesture for sure especially coming from a baptist does church because those historically have been sort of at the forefront of the anti LGBT conversation but according to alford she claims kentucky's goal informed her that the color of her daughters cake and these sweater she was wearing was demonstrating a posture of morality and cultural acceptance contrary very to that of whitefield academy's beliefs because the rainbow is often used as a symbol for LGBTQ plus so so cultural acceptance is contrary to christians according to this private school well is contrary to this school oh i don't think that this school can dictate what's contrary to christians that's true i've met a number of large number of christians who would say that the school is wrong wrong i i am interested to see how many folks that send their children to this school because this is going to be a great example well if we just watched us a little bit of what should happen when schools do things that people think are wrong down if the public school does this kind of shenanigans canana against are people going to pull their kids out of the public school well as goal is more likely to expel a student for refusing to wear rainbow right well it doesn't matter what's going on it's just a fact that you know there's no victim you know nothing's harmless here and i what if i was sending my kids to that school before i pulled my kid out of the school i would give them a chance to redeem themselves and say hey you're really going to expel a kid for having a colorful cake and a colorful shirt with with all the colors on it not even in color you know that wasn't even at school no it was at her it was at her home really and she posted the picture to facebook i really hope people pull their kids out of the school and i hope there's an article written about it and it's reported that you and i hear her name of that of that designer who makes all of the notebooks for girls do you know i have no clue i don't either but it's filled with rainbows and unicorns and that kind of flowers and i'm because i'm going to have a little girl that fifteen year old high school girls just love so it wouldn't necessarily implicate the she has she might not even support LGBT yeah i mean let's be honest she's a fifteen year old girl so she's gen z. as she absolutely supports LGBTQ rights but it's the rainbow here isn't indicative of that who cares cares if it even was who cares if it was saying i love my gay friends and there was a rainbow right who cares the lisa frank is the name i was looking four thank you sammy i was never gonna remember it i really hope that people pull their kids out of this school it'd be no different if there was the the baker down the road wouldn't bake rainbow cake for my gay friends that are getting married i would make it a point not to do business with them and make it a point to tell everybody that i know not to do business with them that i hope this happens with this school that is conspicuously left out of this article is how the family is really reacting to the fact that at the school does not want her daughter to be accepting of LGBTQ people that's the question i have okay so my question is what would jesus do get his kids away from the romans to be educated certainly that right so in a statement to fox fox news however the school maintains that decision was not solely for a social media post but because of violations of the student code of conduct numerous times over the last two years here's in the fall we met with the student to give her a final chance to begin to adhere to our code of conduct unfortunately she did not live up to the to the agreements and therefore has been expelled it doesn't specify what she was doing what this fifteen year old girl was doing the so badly violated their code of conduct that they had to expel l. her but evidently the rainbow sweater was just one step too many downstairs one of these schools where it's like you gotta wear like a brown shirt shirt grey skirt or something like they have like a uniform outfitter that's more true in public schools in my experience really yeah i was you know what they called freaks where i was from but it's essentially a so i wore my big black pants with federal bench bottoms and all of that and i love them hanging off them like loops is some kids in my school did that i still have some and then they implemented school uniforms the entire reason they implemented school uniforms by the way was because the girls at our school just could not resist wearing pajama bottoms as pants that was almost one hundred percent the reason there was definitely a handful of people kids at warlike sweatpants but the big big thing the big thing in my school i graduated high school in nineteen ninety eight and it was like when i was a freshman in high school or eighth grade we're eighth grade in our high school most of the kids my eighth grade class you know dressed up like they were you know homes from compton and palmer's like basically you know redneck you know massachu- western mass hick town and but a lot of these kids dressed up like they were on a criss cross you know MTV rap video or the way i put it like they were looking for a boyfriend and you know in some prison gang they wear their pants down the style was where your pants down below your actual cheeks like and then you could see like the whole form some of the guys like but cheeks in his boxer shorts seen the clip of the booty warrior from one of those documentaries where he talks about that this is old right yes ah yes probably ten fifteen years old at this i've definitely i know what you're talking about yeah and that's what so i had who is in jail when i was a kid telling about these guys it was like oh well that means as he wants he wants to be someone's someone's be you know and so i talked my buddies and they started pulling your pants up so the mother does ask you know what we teach our kids what would jesus do now what would jesus do hear more on this in just a moment eight five five four five zero three seven three three have you heard of liberty

talk live uncontested absurdities of today by the accepted slogans of tomorrow can the thought you would have had it memorized uncontested absurdities today expected slow them tomorrow like LGBT in calling he or she okay w. w. j. d. called everyone liar and a loser to his face not to mention the jack pook suck why don't you be a man once coversations causing the challenge to me on your monologue about russia just your typical stupidity of the typical brain that is inside this between your ears so tell me where i was wrong james actually challenge lincoln i have a good immune system of the country of russia and then compared it instead of a nice place it's closer than really financially and socially yes better educated people in russia russia which is not a third world country but a second world one because james from russia doesn't call but james teams from the united states does so i know russia i know rush on folks russians as stupid as americans i think the actual smarter vaccinated like are in america they're certainly better chess player tasting i didn't call any russian stupid generalization that into second world country with first oil first of all world oil wealth but as far as rushing united states having what's what's the most you can go over to russia right now say room and have a commercial and have a radio program as antigovernment disparages the government on a daily basis yeah hi gran with you james i didn't say that the roles of civil liberties were flipped james you gotta let's talk chumps james you have to stop talking let j. respond to the statements no let you stop talking for him i know maybe put you on hold james i don't wanna do that let tames respond to your comment so you had said you couldn't get on a radio in russia and having anti-government broadcast i do not disagree i agree with you there what i had to restate what i said about russia where russia and the united states has flipped roles is financially in the fact that the debt debt to gold ratio of the nations is has flipped and the social cac capability because today we have a lot of people my age in younger who are not willing to work either because they're lazy they believe that you know someone like bernie sanders is gonna come along and just give them whatever and that's essentially what was going on in russia before they collapsed you had a bunch of people who had not been developing skills they had because they didn't have to they just got fed today today we have a lot of people who do not have skills this is why skilled labor is so hard to find the marketplace for skill labor is very tight now when it comes to civil freedoms and civil liberties and rights to freedom of speech and things like that russia's not good they're they're they're killing or putting people in prison for being gay or speaking out it's still going on i do agree with you on james by just said that to asset ratio if our gold to debt ratio financially and the essentially the social diversity has flipped in my opinion now if you can correct me on those i'd love to hear about that as a audience honestly say you just wanted another five minute monologue and didn't let a collar speak at all you instantly interrupted them and repeated your nonsense okay along audience thinks that russia has a stronger economy because they'd ask metal that's called gold reserves serves and have less debt than we do when yes i'll grant you we have a greater get to go ratio and we also have have either konami that is so much bigger than russia we have multiple steak with bigger economies that are more productive on a daily basis each system russia has been in the last seven years combined perhaps but now united states does not have the aria let me tell you when you ryan thank you got by the way that when you lived in vegas and saw REX you know everyday when he told passed it and you said i'm going to name myself aryan call me selfish she and rednecks rednecks from from massachusetts who is an educated boob who actually believes nine eleven was an inside job what the russians think about about nine one one being an inside job they will tell you it was an inside job really flat amir putin actually headed up really really the three james let me know chill out vladimir putin was actually at the UN demanding an independent investigation into september eleventh two thousand one because he said the united states was likely involved or are you starting the UN when do you ever stopped the UN except for one in degrees was i didn't site that you in your putin have you been drinking james of of course he has he's here he's seventy third DUI jalen because you're a loser and a liar like WW tate and you don't have anything put smear itself but you know what he doesn't have james and thank you for the call we're going to move on but you know what he doesn't have a seventy third DUI they have a driver's license it said vladimir putin putin did in fact stand in front of the UN and demand an independent investigation shen into nine eleven and it was actually the united states and israel for what it's worth i remember israel was involved who blocked the attempt i don't think crazy james even listen to what anybody says because you clearly said that very precisely and he's like you're quoting you know you were quoting putin speaking to the UN as far as has september eleventh two thousand one goes itself i don't see many ways of escaping the almost certainty that the united states government either allowed it to happen or caused it to happen and no matter what that part of it was they certainly didn't let that catastrophe go to waste and they were very prepared to implement all kinds of things to focus lights on it are

wouldn't say regular again but he does call again all right well uh anyone is possible aww that story about that got spelt right because you're talking about the fifteen year old who was expelled from the private christian school for having a rainbow sweater in a rainbow cake correct right i understand first off in a way where you guys are coming from and i'm in part of obviously it's that i i've heard the show but i think i have to i feel i can't help but feel some type of like need to to take like you know they'll less side of this one because there's a certain level at which i i get stuff but there's also a certain level at which there is a struggle for power between you know two different parts of the culture and i don't want to let the dominion went you know what i mean i think it would you say is the left position on this that the kids should not be expelled kids should not be let me the kid can just enlist in public school or go to another private school that's true it's not about that it's about that there are not gonna be any place in the future where you know queer symbolic gee if if that's that's what you're using for or not gonna get you kicked out of school in the long run i think you're correct well the market i'm i'm curious to see what the free market does with this particular scenario because like i said before if my kid was at school i would definitely have an issue with it i'm not saying saying i can't make the decision right here i kicked out of my school there might be some really wonderful things about that school but i would at least go explain to the directors of the school or whatever how how a problem with it maybe then i would make my decision to remove my kid from that school if that was the situation and and that being said if there's you know people could sway that but there also might be you know some big benefactors to this school that give it a lot of money every year that are like hey we you know we really hate gay people and all that stuff and we don't want any of that things happening so maybe you know that is the the motivation i mean anytime you can't understand something i've known especially anything political or or whatever it's like well follow the money and that'll usually explain explain once you if you can follow the money that usually explained it for me anyways market has been pretty clear on the subject for sure chick-fil-a of course no longer is opposing LGBT groups i mentioned these alvin army will come next because people stopped going to chick-fil-a fillet i don't understand why people come to play in the first place but a lot of people do apparently but a lot of people refused to go because it's a hate chicken sandwich and you don't need a side side of hate chicken hate is terrible for you yeah and the same is true with a salvation army it's it's got a side of hate to it so people find other organizations organizations to which to give their money and okay i j i agree with what you're saying about how there's probably some sort of like some type of benefactor all thing that kinda keeps this idea or this to this position for them to have probably like artificially held out longer in the market does it we're gonna say sure but those rules are dry you know go all ultimately it's the reason capitalism oakland equalizers the rich the ultra rich can't just keep spending all the money to influence the economy unilaterally indefinitely they're going to run out that's always criticism of capitalism is okay well you got somebody who's got ninety nine percent of the wealth okay that's fine because in twenty years so spent all of that and if there's a society they will figure out how to hold onto their futile vice dum okay intern capitalism yeah i wanna get now not wanna get you though 'cause i have related to actual topic we're talking about okay and it's and here's what it is i think i think there's a theme that runs across a lot of different parts of our politics right now where you're starting to see a a type of right weighing that is kind of going out the window but it is trying to usurp power for itself very quickly kind of almost like the midnight judges at at the beginning of this country was john adams i feel like there's midnight judge situation where people who can see the writing is on the wall for their ideas about politics culture and everything like got a large sir power and just hold it that they can keep our country and chain basically until well of white supremacists hetero patriarchy to go down without a fight is expected but that's why that's why i have to take this fight even to this school is the show ah everywhere where their hegemony is ready to bring the fight there i think that this stuff i think giving them your money to editor kate your daughter is not taking the fight to them is bowing down to them if you don't like what they're doing stop giving them your money vote where your dollars don't say you're finding them while you're like no we must we must continue giving them this girl's parents i don't think that's how we're going to fight them but that's literally what you wanna do vote she should be pushed back into the school the fight is to is to vote for people who will put those protection dent the problem doesn't even happen in the first place it's for the don't we don't need those protectionist government to come along and put those protections in dude we don't need that yes we do why do it what what good governance protections protections ever time for anyone is is the government protecting why people with the civil rights era has done anything to keep the black people out of american population prison population will will you let me finish the question before you start answering because i don't know if you've checked the american prison population lately but it's overwhelmingly plaque the war on drugs is targeted at black people planned parenthood data so so so what this these protections for the minority communities in the united states actually done what the state simultaneously is targeting those minority communities and not giving them a gift with shooting them with the other not really because the government isn't just one big homogeneous thing different parts that we can fees and use them against each other even you know there are there are different ways that we take power in different forms and then use them to affect things in other parts of the government and you know it starts with all types the politics my idea is to hope like ideally like ideally speaking we will just have a good turnout and then just get enough political power to just i use it you really just make everyone pay right circle to just make everyone obey that's horrible it's worked it's worked for the capitalist adamant we have an capitalism in this country since at least eighteen sixty four best i can tell you dan thank you so much for the call i i absolutely abhor what you said i find it reprehensible and disgusting a you want to get this great big turn out and just sees power and make people obey i i think you should reflect on that and why you think that you're the best person to

last caller who called in he had was talking talk about the essentially the divide between like the straight and the LGBT community and i believe all these divides whether it's divide between sports ball team a sports ball team a divide between red and blue divide between white and i'm not why i think that there's a lot of interests out there to subsidizes divides to essentially encourage these divides as sure because what is the quote from edgar allan poe the follow hush-up assure divided house house divided against itself cast i know that was not house of worship shark yeah there's all kinds of really good quotes about that stuff and you know this is started right very soon in school like in school it's you know everybody's on a team and you gotta be a team and this team versus team and you need to beat that team and then it's it's not really publicized but like it's you know when i was in high school i mean there was definitely a lot of hatred because if if you liked like disliked the town where which was a rival gang keys versus you know red sox or whatever these two neighboring towns we you were like really pushing to disliking people from that town was like it was kind of an agenda and it wasn't you didn't dislike them because they were bad people you just just like them because we were the blue team and they were the green team and and the whole thing of the individual means nothing with all these public doc you know sub- subsidized government-subsidized sports is where a lot of it starts i know a lot of people upset when i say that because they love their sports ball and they worship their sports teams but spa but the whole sports thing is like we're to conquer and divide of the other team starts there's no no individualism at all and real i hate to cut you off go ahead let's get into the funds we got carlos calling from florida carlos you're on free talk live hello hi you're on free talk live what's on your mind oh thank you hey i i like to talk about name aggression okay i love immigrants right yes yeah yeah i talk about about the the quality of the immigrants that we tend to absorb and and what that's going to have have what effect that would have on our electoral politics go for it all right so hey i'm a i'm actually cuban okay my my parents were driven out when the when the when castro you know he told everyone that wasn't a communist leave cuba and that was my parents my parents were among those people i'm about to say something racist car-less less no no no no no no i'm not i'm i can't be racist i'm not white sea about what i expected i am not capable anyway my point is that that during during that situation that my parents were chased they they were they were both medical doctors and i'm i'm a doctor and anyway my point is that bringing these people all these low these these people from like you know the south america these people aren't are not capitalists they they they they've been voting for socialist and communist regimes yes from which they are now on the yeah there i'm not sure i believe so they correct their own country and they're like okay that didn't work let's get the hell out of here i've met a lot of people from central america and mexico and worked worked with him i have never ever met any of these guys that would they hate socialism they hate the fact that government controls means of production and when i was in colorado i worked with the mexicans folks from peru and they love the idea that you could keep money they love the idea that you didn't have you know these people worked they came here i mean i'm i'm not i'm not i'm not yeah they came to work but like they're coming here to work i mean they they expect things i mean i'm not trying to say you're wrong dude i i'm experience is all it is blow you up on your own show show hanging payment thanks for having me on coming here to work then yeah that's totally true but they but they also they they they're coming from from place the well they're they're they're not coming here because they had a a better deal back home right right yeah i agree the better deal a better life and they want to work i were less i'm not trying to be difficult i legitimately do not see the problem no no i i don't i see it's clear you can't see the problem what is the problem the problem the problem is that that they come here and they sign up for social programs and they work under the table i'm okay with that bleed the state try and don't give any money while you do it now all the guy i want to thank those immigrants for their service what a what a statement to make so you're you're you're you're willing don't let these people come hold on here hold on i've been i'm a second generation migrants you're willing to go like these people come in here work work for less money than the people i i want the americans who were born here to also work under the table and not pay taxes while also also bleeding the state state dry with social welfare programs now sounds like an ideal solution to the problem of government you kidding me are you kidding i got a question for you the crap kidding me why why would be kidding you she she's not kidding i understand is not getting but she but she she must you must know that people like like my family they they came over here fled the communist they fled the communist holocaust which is literally what these other immigrants are doing but you seem to have an issue with that and a lot of these central american immigrants for example and south american immigrants that are coming to this country are they're leaving leaving their countries because the united states has for decades been destabilizing you like the likes of elliot abrams going massacring people in central america and granada contract but i mean i i agree it's not our problem i want to do is literally in your is that your name are you excuse me just let me speak listen i i feel offer these people and i'm glad that i don't think i have to interrupt you here because i don't think you do fill for these people and i don't think you feel for your parents based on what you're saying what these people well are doing i got lucky i got lucky that's true true what these people are doing is fleeing communist regimes it doesn't matter whether or not they voted for them freeing dr they're fleeing narcoterrorism that you're not the united states should take care of you know we we spend we spend a lot of money blowing up you know how you narcoterrorism tourism you legalize all newark's all the narcotics i don't disagree with you there like i i do not disagree with like if you want if you if you wanna kill yourself heroin find ahead but but but the these people have been the narc the narcos have taken over the government of mexico and it it kinda can be because the mexican government was just fighting some of the drug cartels and there was kind of a a war zone for a little while so i mean they cartels clearly have not taken over any of these governments that they were the government's wouldn't be fighting those tro cartels but jay is absolutely right eight if you want to get rid of these cartels you get rid of them the same way we got rid of al capone you legalize the substance they're selling the attorney eric holder was the attorney general the united states during the obama literally sent millions of guns operation passing yes to the mexican cartels else the mexican cartels are fueled by the prohibition of narcotics in this country carlos thank you so much for the call i think you're or entirely wrong and i think you should reflect on your family past and how it fled communist to the communism to come to the united states and have a better life head on over to freetalklive dot dot

five five thousand four for more information that's the word daily two eight hundred six hundred five thousand four right now here's pastor rick with part one of message called building character at work today i want us to look at how god uses your work to build character your job your career now that's important because the fact is you're gonna spend approximately forty percent of your life at work in other words it's your job that's about one hundred and fifty thousand hours over your lifetime surveys show that about a third of all people say i hate my job and other surveys show that nearly two thirds of people are in the wrong job you you may not know this but you can even like your job and still not be in the job that's best suited for how god shaped you even many people are successful at their work really don't feel fulfilled by their work they're making money they have a lot of income but they don't really feel fulfilled by the work and they're not really growing spiritually at work now because you're going to spend almost half of your life working god is deeply interested in your work work is a part of god's will for your life it's part of your calling for followers of jesus there's no such thing as just a job god has five purposes for your life here on earth and your your job is one of the places that you can work on and fulfill four of those five purposes now on your outline i have noted that your job is the place to do four of those five purposes i my job as a place to develop and use the towns that god gave me when you develop a news talent scott gave you that's called your ministry then your job is placed to honor god by giving him your best and that's your worship and then in your job as a place to show and tell others about god's love for them that's called your mission and then your job as a place to grow in character christ slight character that's your maturity now today i just want to focus on the fourth purpose work helping you grow to spiritual maturity work is an integral part of your spiritual development you cannot grow to spiritual maturity without work you can't relax your way into into spiritual maturity now each week in this series we've reminded you that god's number one purpose in your life is for you to grow up spiritually and our model model and character is of course jesus notice here on the screen romans eight twenty nine from the very beginning god decided did that those who came to him should become like his son god's number one purpose in your life is to make you like excuse to grow in character and fijian's for thirteen there on your outline says this real maturity is that measure of development two point one which is meant by the fullness of christ spiritual maturity means the more i become like christ the more mature i become now how does god use your work how does i'd use my work to build my character well he uses many different ways but this weekend i want to just look at three ways uses pressure at work he uses problems at work and any uses people at work or any vaguely familiar with these three things yes i'm sure you are so let's look at it three ways god wants you to grow spiritually clean become like christ through your job i god uses pressure at work to teach me responsibility god god uses pressure at work to teach me responsibility every job has its own pressures and stress can be beneficial if you use it to motivate debate you to grow you ever had to complete a task that you didn't feel like doing yes have you ever had to complete a task that you didn't feel competent to do yes well you you were being responsible even though you didn't feel like doing it fijian's five fifteen says this live life then with a due sense of responsibility circle that we are to live life with a sense of responsibility not as people who don't know the meaning of life but those who do the more you understand god's purpose for your life the more responsible you need to be seen work is a school of responsibility where we learn how to be responsible and of course that's a big deal because today responsibility is declining in our society you don't ever hear anybody talking about responsibility here everybody's talking about my rights but there are no rights without responsibilities the courts are clogged by people say it's not my fault and and and if you talk to most psychologists therapists today they'll tell you that personal responsibility is the key to mental health that's one of the big keys it's also so one of the big keys to spiritual growth it's also one of the keys to career success we grow by being given responsibility responsibly stretches us every time you're given responsibility it's an opportunity for spiritual and emotional and personal growth he said we'll give me some examples all right let me give you three or four ways to develop responsibility at work this is how you grow in christ like character because christ was responsible how how do i grow in responsibility well number one here write this down by keeping my promise when you make a promise at work you need to keep that promise at work some fifteen verse four says this that god blesses the one who always does what he promises no matter how much it may cost is your word good are you a person of responsibility that people know that when you say it it's going to be done do you keep your promises that's a marker the responsibility let me give you another one by meeting deadlines a meeting deadlines you grow in responsibility proverbs eighteen verse nine one who is slack in his his work is a brother to the one who destroys that word there and hebrews actually the word saboteur like somebody who sabotage something and the bible says that when you waste your employer's time at work you're like saboteur your sabotaging the business you're sabotaging the company you're destroying destroying the business every time you waste time and so meeting deadlines is another way of showing responsibility let me give you a third one equation six tells us that we show responsibility by working without supervision by working without supervision fees and six six and seven says this don't work hard only when your master is watching in other words the bosses in town work hard all the time as the working for christ notice there he switches from saying i'm working for my boss to say i'm actually working for my real boss christ and he says wither wither my boss is in the office or not whether my supervisor's checking up on me are not christians should be known to not need a supervisor because as they work on their own initiative they give their best without having to be supervised 'cause they're doing it for god they have character and they're responsible missile and they do their best work because they realize that dot is ultimate boss luke sixteen verse ten jesus said this unless you're faithful in small matters you won't be faithful enlargements and if you cheat even a little then you won't be honest honest in greater responsibilities now he's talking specifically about the responsibility of being honest of having integrity it makes this i makes me think about a guy in our church once told me about a customer who asked him to do a dishonest favor and the customer justified it by saying it's okay buddy your bosses out but this christian guy in our church replied well my real boss is never out and that's a good thing okay that's that's the mentality thing i'm not working for my boss i'm working for my savior i'm working for god who do you work for makes a big difference in if you're responsible irresponsible if you think you're just working for the government you might be a responsible if you think you're working for a boss you don't respect you might be irresponsible that if you realize you're really working for god then it's a matter stewardships let me give you a fourth way to show responsibility by controlling controlling costs by controlling costs did you know the bible has something to say about this luke sixteen eleven and twelve says this if you're untrustworthy and unreliable about world the wealth who will trust you true riches of heaven and if you're not unfaithful with other people's money why should you be entrusted with money of your own you know i was thinking as i read that versus now some some employees spend their company's money you'd think they were the government it's an unlimited budget this verse tells us that god says the greatest test of your character is how you handle money d- manage it well do you act as if somebody else's business is your business you you know accept ownership even though it's not yours you see god is watching and god says i will determine how much i bless your life on how faith you faithful you are somebody else's money so i'll be asking how would you rate yourself on being responsible at work how would you rate yourself with your own finances do either of those show that god can trust you with greater blessings so the first thing god wants has to do with our work is teach us responsibility teach us how to be responsible let me give you a second way god wants to use your job to help you grow a second way god wants to help you grow spiritually is this god uses problems at work to teach me character he he uses pressure teach me responsibility he uses problems that teach me character now there are no problem for jobs and every job has its own unique problems and god wants to use those problems to build your character romans chapter five versus three and four says this we can rejoice choice when we run into problems and trials for we know that they're good for us that they help us learn to be patient and patients develops strength of character i want you to circle strength of character you've heard me say before that god is far more interested in your character then he is in your comfort is far more or interested in perfecting you then he is in pampering you god's goal in your life and in your job in your work is not to make you comfortable god's goal in your life is to make you grow up and he uses problems in your life to teach you character and every that a problem at work you need to ask not why why am i having this problem why is this happening to me you need to ask what don't ask why ask what asked what do you want me to learn from this god what are you trying to teach me what's the character problem in my life what's my blindspot what do you you want me to work through in this difficulty then it's revealing what value what attitude what what action what what responsibility needs to be focused on what character issue in my life you needs to be worked on when you so allowed this problem in my life so what do you want me to work on c. remember this simple truth while you're working on your job god is is working on you and god did you know that god can even use temptation the temptation that you face at work many believers say you know i i don't really like working with unbelievers because i get tempted all the time well you're gonna get tempted with believers as much as with unbelievers and it's not a sin to be tempted it's ascend to give into temptation it's not extended be tempted you're going to be tempted the rest of life no matter where you work and so so it's a myth that if i get around christmas i won't be tempted to buy a lot of stop jesus the bible says was tempted in every way because we never sinned he never gave in so it's not a sin tend to be tempted jesus never sinned he was tempted did you know that god can even use the temptations in your life for good he can even use those temptations to build character because temptation is simply a choice i can choose to do good or bad everytime choose to do bad temptation harms me every time i choose to do good temptation becomes a stepping stone for growth you can't just leave truly say i'm an honest person unless you've ever been tempted dishonest sam fair person unless you've ever been tempted and had the opportunity and the choice to be unfair you can't stand responsible person and thus you've ever brad the choice or opportunity or temptation to be irresponsible every temptation it comes into your life listen is an opportunity for growth breath every temptation is an opportunity for growth it's an opportunity to change change your character to build it to develop strength of character i corinthians ten thirteen a wonderful promise remember that the temptations come into your life are no different from others experience in other words we all all are tempted in the same way and god is faithful he will keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you can't stand up against it and when you're tempted he will show you a way out so you will not give into it when you say it was too strong i couldn't handle it you're lying because god says i will never allow more on you than i put in and you to bear it up now the reality is that sometimes problems at work are just overwhelming and you feel like you're going under and you feel like you're about to be swallowed up what do you do then what do you do when you're overwhelmed while you do what paul did when he was overwhelmed in second corinthians chapter one verse eight nine paul says this i think you ought to know about the hard times we went through asia he's these are times he was overwhelmed he said we were really crushed and overwhelmed and we fear we would never live through through it we saw how powerless we were to help ourselves we are down down dooby doo down down we're we're we're powerless we're overwhelmed he said but even that was good for then we put everything into the hands of god alone who alone could save us and he did help us now listen very closely when you're in a problem work that is so overwhelming you think i'm going under this i'm not going to survive this you do too thanks thanks i like paul you turn the problem over to god through prayer to god five paul says i'm overwhelmed i'm helpless i'm i'm confused i feel like i'm not gonna make it through you cry out to god you've turned

and reveal how we should apply this to our lives as we commit this hour ourselves into your hands in the name of shula are coming king and date amen well okay we're in the continuation of paul's missionary journey his third missionary journey but the land in the last session there was a little the anecdote put at the end of the chapter eighteen that really was a setup for chapter nineteen so let's go back and pick it up about verse twenty four and a certain jew named the polish born in alexandria an eloquent man and mighty in the scriptures came to emphasise so he's quite a guy there's many many scholars that are really the interested in learning more about him and very effective now this incident gonna record here is obviously a prelude to the first seven verses of chapter nineteen this man was instructed in the way of the lord and being fervently spirit he speak and taught diligently the things of the lord knowing only the baptism zimmer john in other words what he knew he dealt with very positively very eloquently but unfortunately he only understood up to that point he had had no concept of the death and resurrection of jesus christ so he was he was as a believer but not there yet so the word fervent they're really means is boiling hot in the way of the lord now john the baptist taught three great truths forgiveness of sins on the basis of repentance in fact only on the basis of repentance expressing that all through baptism that was as market as ministry and he pointed to one who was coming to complete their salvation what's missing from john the baptist presentation if you're a disciple diaper just john the baptist that's as far as you in what was missing in your program was the cross because of course that hadn't happened yet during john's ministry fact he was executed before the cross therefore the resurrection was not part of his perspective and certainly the holy spirit's baptism had not occurred yet so three things he had but three things he was short and they point to the shortages that apollo's was suffering from so anyway began to speak speak boldly in the synagogue whom when akilah and priscilla had heard they took him onto them and expounded onto him the way of god more perfectly or to set ed more politely more completely the wordperfect there's used in the sense of completeness he certainly was incomplete so it's very providential that priscilla ellen killer was left an emphasis to encounter him to they were the right people at the right place at the right time that's the handiwork of the holy spirit it's also impressive this guy policy's very impressive for several reasons he's obviously very bright obviously very eloquent but he had an attribute that is probably more important than any of those he had humility he was open to correction and that's a challenge for all of us they're always be open always be listening the teachable will always be humble humility humidity is always warranted and so he received that and he became a mighty evangelist and he went onto a that is the area of greece in corinth and so forth and when he was disposed to pass into the brethren wrote exhorting the principals to receive him who when he was come help them much which had believed through grace ace for a mightily convinced the jews and that publicly showing by the scriptures that jesus is the christ or the messiah okay of course the capital of that province was corinth itself got up now a chapter in one thousand nine hundred and paul is in antioch he then goes ahead and he he revisits all the churches throughout galicia and in that order it always goes back and visits them to encourage them and so forth and paul in ephesus he makes f-a-s-t his base of operations for three years and that will cover the first seven in verses of the chapter the disciples oh policy will receive the holy spirit churches founded in the following verses so let's pick it up now and chapter nineteen verse verse one that came to pass that while policy was at corinth paul having passed through the upper coasts came to emphasise and finding certain the disciples you know it's interesting that this is all derives from apollo who was indebted to very plain couple gillen priscilla from their earlier you're meeting now we know in the province of asia of course which includes the western part of asia minor in the romans took this country about one thirty they've the finally the name of asia's extended to the whole continent and it was of course the jewel of the roman empire along with africa so that's it was what's called a senatorial to'real province it was full of great cities that are very prominent in the bible emphasis smyrna pergamon attire artists philadelphia lane acea the seven churches purchase of revelation two and three are here but also hire us and the hellenism had full sway their emphasis was the the capital of this area and the chief city it was richer and larger than corinth so this is a very important place and it was located the interest of the valley of the meander to the east here was the power of rome and the splendor of greek culture and the full title of oriental superstition and magic temple of artemis was one of the seven wonders of the world we'll be talking quite a bit about artists or diana they get confused because one greek and one is rome and they have both use the the same where names in reverse but will get that here while analysis some hold that paul at this time wrote the epistle to the relations after his recent visit there air some that he did it before his visited jerusalem whichever he said under them have received the holy ghost since he believed and they said under him we have not so much as heard whether there be any holy goes you see these disciples who were suffering from the same deficiencies apollo head although although apollo's situation have been corrected when he was in corinth these guys are emphasis suffering from the same deficiency in effect okay the holy spirit did you receive even believing is the question paul romans abraham and he sent her them onto what then were you baptized and they said onto john's baptism in other words they're understanding didn't go any further than john the baptist bensaid paul john fairly baptized with the baptism of repentance saying under the people that they should believe on him which would come after him that is on christ jesus in terms of john's baptism christ and salvation rather expected respected than having actually come and that's what makes all the difference see the old testament actually ends in luke sixteen sixteen the the old testament ends with john the baptist john the baptist is regarded as the last of the old testament prophets we're talking new testament now we're talking post resurrection so now in the whole issue is the holy spirit we we're going to explore five verbs of the holy spirit there are four of them that are used in the singular since invent that occurs once and only once born of the spirit into the family in john three of course that happens once in a lifetime if you're born you're born you don't need to be born again a second time if you're born you're born is the idea you're baptized the spirit into the body once and for all the second corinthians twelve deals with that you're in dwelt by the spirit living in us and that's permanent in fact without repentance that's the thing that amaze paul hammers it away in several places especially in the vision but it comes up of course also in romans eight and your sealed not only are you in dwelt by the holy spirit but you're sealed by the spirit unto redemption vision vision one and three and four on goes so those four verbs are used in a once and for all sense but there's another verb that that is repeat a repeated experience in your walk and that is the filling of the spirit and that's what if he's five talks about and that's essential to understand there's a lot confusion about this they use oh spirit and i encourage you to do your own study pay very close attention to both the prepositions and verbs here the verbs for the mar mar a watson for all event the last one i mentioned is something that you seek again and again and again if you're going to be over comer and there's much to say about that the prepositions he is whether he's in you in dwelling upon you and so forth and so now are we a contradiction as the question are we have union without communion is a question do we have profession without experience big difference between gene professing it actually having experienced do we have life without health another way to ask it do we have movement without actual progress do we are battles but without victory do we have service without success do we have trials without triumph each each one of these imply or raise the question have you been filled with the spirit you may be saved but are you filled with the spirit and are you on the right side the easter but on the wrong side of pentecost are you on the right side of pardon but on the wrong side of power are you justified justified but not yet sanctified that's there's a big debate in the christian body about the use of these terms when my wife and i published a kingdom kingdom power and the glory was amazing device that was in some areas and the the fact that scientific is a work in progress justifications she's once and for all jesus did on the cross oh my sins we're paid for them what am i sanctify that's never finished continue growing all of us need to continually raise the bar on her walk and if you wanna indepth study of the gift of the spirit we suggest you can get a briefing package on the spiritual chill gifts or simply go to our commentary in the book of corinthians both i cur twelve thirteen and fourteen deal with this issue well let's move onto verse i five when they heard this they were baptized in the name of the lord jesus and when paul had laid his hands upon them the holy ghost came up on them and they speak with tongues and prophesied and all the men were about twelve and he went into the synagogue and speak boldly for a space of three months disputing and persuading things concerning the kingdom of god that was fine for a while but then verse nine when the divers were hardened and and believe not but speak evil of that way before the multitude he departed from them and departed and separated disciples disputing daily in the school school of terrain ius sky tournus in other words in the synagogue he did fine for a while until the judy is irs ganged up on him hardened and fought with them and so forth so he departed from them went next door and got some space place it's called the school of tyrannus knows they speak evil of the way they didn't have denominational names the spoke but as the way it was a subset in their minds at least of judaism buddhism was that particular way of dealing with things but who is the way jesus's either way is the person i am the way to jesus quite so that was a term you'll find us several times in the scripture and we tend to use the term today christians who are believers but they they call it the way these these guys speak of the way and you'll discover the paul before he leaves episodes is gonna really preach to them to the elders there and it's clear when you look at jesus letter better to emphasise in revelation two that they apparently heated that instruction and they walked out they were on the guard for false teachers and so forth no jesus said i am the way that's where we get that phrase now the school of terrain this was used by paul as an outreach throughout the province for two years versed in and this continued by the space of two years so that all they which dwelt in asia heard the word of the lord jesus both jews and greeks that's quite a sentence it's all those that dwelt in asia heard the word they we turn the world upside down now we also understand that he had he may have had an unrecorded visit to corinth since the one next recorded is twice called his third visit if you're tracking taking his repeated visits to court and during the close of this long stay this two year stay here he wrote i corinthians and he also many scholars because we also when he wrote galicians it was perhaps the most productive period of paul's life in the minds of some others would argue that his imprisonment has monroe which led to the prisoner bristles was even more productive but the school of tornadoes and we wanted to understand this guy the term actually means are tired but it was a common term in that area and there isn't a description on the column barium of the bruce livia as that it was a physician in the court that's maybe weren't they pick this up and another scholar suggests the possibility that a relative of this physician was lecturing on medicine emphasis and so was a friend of luke luke look beh- doctor this may have been a friend luke and that may be why luke was able to range the school space it paul may have been given the space or he may be able to rennet for a modest fee because he's there for several years so it would be helpful to paul to have a place to preach next door to the synagogue they weren't welcome in the jewish community so he's down the street here probably a public building or lecture hall hired by paula loaned him and possibly through luke we find references to those kinds of because now the codex busy ads from the fifth hour to the tenth as the time allotted for paula to work in this hall and and that would be before midday until the close of the afternoon sort of what we think of as a siesta time in hot cultures in hot climate cultures they take a break in from from noon to early afternoon and that would be a time that many people are off work they take siestas or whatever that was a time that was apparently preaching for a leisurely meal meal maybe a nap some sports or visiting paul at the school of tyrannus and they would reopen they typically nine thirty that night much cool so you've visited spain or some of this country countries you're familiar with that cycle of the day now it's interesting just as it corinth paul's greatest success was after after his withdrawal to a separate place of meeting he had faithful helpers pat i is referred to that trip is fi leeman are all names come up frequently and this is our starks titus promise and the all established churches eastward casa latest harare and others and also probably smyrna satire pergama philadelphian sardaz which of course emerge in jesus's letters that constitute a revelation chapter two and three now paul paid his expenses by working he had a vocation patient making tense we'll find that more next chapter but he probably stayed with priscilla because they had that common trade common interest between them but it also says is that he pastored from house to house i'm always interested in everything the book hacks seems to happen h- homes and that's why i call it the home the once the once and future church that's where it all started and that's where it's migrating today today you can really sense a hell of a nation by the degree that people are meeting being in small groups during the week study the word of god in god ross special miracles by the hands of paul so that from his body where brought into under the sick handkerchiefs aprons and the diseases departed from them and the evil spirits went out of them and the word by the way the word miracle here is doing us which is from which we get the word dynamite these are real miracle is going on here but with handkerchiefs aprons this is this is a very strange stuff now when he says handkerchiefs typically the sweat bands from somebody that's working hard that's what a really dealing with here aprons were the leather work apron so both of these items were byproducts of a vocational effort and they were sought after because they were paul's but we even see even in the mosaic period ed moses had symbols staff for an example aaron's rod and so forth god will use these occasionally for miracles see got often often does condescend to meet us in our own ignorance and weaknesses where he can reach his doesn't imply that these things were magical it's just that god chose to use them there there's a big difference there it's far far cry from those that on radio or television offer you off if you give a special offering they'll send you handkerchief or something i don't there's they have nothing to do with what's going on here but there are biblical uses are biblical examples of uses of symbols of various kinds elijah had a notion that some of the power of elijah resided in his mantle you may recall there is some even sought help up from peter shadow we read x five back there and so on but let's move on then certain of the vagabond jews exorcists took upon them to call over over them which had evil spirits the name of the lord jesus saying we jury you by jesus whom paul preaches and there were seven suns one seaver ziba a jew and chief of which did so it's kind of a strange thing here now these are exorcist these are cultus but they're endorsing or echoing polish ministry that sounds like a positive no they just take their taking you try to take advantage here's what's going on notice here they they call over them that had evil spirits the name of the lord jesus watch a notice the article there by the way the lord jesus as if to identify the magic word to demons with the addition of whom paul preaches they thought success turned on the correct use of a magical formula they were trying to adapt and adopt a magical formulas what the really after and there were seven sons of jews chief of the priests which did took advantage of this no the spirit answered and said this is a demon possessed guy right the evil spirit answers and says jesus he's a sino and pauline no but who are ye man in whom the evil spirit was leapt on them and overcame them and prevailed against them so that they fled out of the house naked and wounded this one demon possessed by the demon so you know his reaction to these occultist you know jesus we'd all in paulino but who he and this one guy overcomes seven the the seven sons of cba now some people if you dig into this exposures you discover that some say the greek implies only to and that's not quite correct in the language here the term that's used their implies all seven the word where we say both that means two but they're the greek structure implies a plurality of all of them but it takes it takes some depth of understanding of agreed to get into that even in old english english the word both means more than two this is a place where some expertise in in general were is useful but in any case case that's obvious that these tons of sea got the worst of it i always think that's kind of that would make a great movie scene you know and the overcame came them so one man overcame all seven of these guys jesus i know in other terms in the greek means a deep instinctive and they knowledge okay paul i'm acquainted with c. notice the personality of satan's forces there personages that are sentient knowledgeable and very resourceful there's a number of events the gospels and also here that one of the things we need to understand that these creatures are real these aren't euphemisms for some psychiatric problems obsession no they're being possessed these are a sentient knowledgeable and very resourceful beings so now this is the fourth attack encounter here we had simon magazine may remember we had bar jesus and we had to flip him pies and so this is the fourth encounter that we've encountered here okay seventeen and this was known to all the jews and greeks also dwelling emphasis and fear or fell on them all and the name of lord jesus was magnified and many that believe came and confessed and showed their deeds so the msci blooming here this is a major center in the primary roman province and the word is getting out people getting saved many of them also which use curious arts meaning colleague practices brought their books together and burn them before all men and they counted the price of them and founded fifty fifty thousand pieces of silver so mightily grew the word of god 'em prevailed these books we're not into burning books in our our culture but the real lesson here is some of these things are dangerous and these are weapons of satan's warfare see human beings are not easily easily invaded they bother you unless you give them permission but you can inadvertently given permission by things you indulgent and that can be ouija boards urge that can be seances horoscopes these are all things that can be used by the dark side and we need to understand that these things are not harmless entertainment these are not things that are not without their risks because they are what some people would call him entry as a demon get a toehold if you've read the book or saw the movie the exorcist william blatty the author i remember in water martin was going to set out to attack him thinking he hadn't done his homework discover that he had done his homework he actually wrote that novel aw based on some several case studies the case studies happened to be young boy in new jersey and the movie they made a girl but the point is that blatty had done his homework and from that point of view was accurate walter didn't like the way they ended the movie satan win but he had to yield because he realized that he had done his homework but the point i'm getting reason i make reference to that what started all those bizarre goings on and they're based on a real case study is that all all started with this gal fooling around with the board and that was an entry that that's what started the whole episode and this goes for role playing games and so forth north and i haven't kept up with the gaming industry but i wouldn't be a bit surprised at some of the the popular video games maybe in that same category could be dangerous from a colleague point of view these are all potentially weapons of satan's warfare now dimitrius confirm the tremendous influence of paul ministries in emphasis assists in asia twenty six coming down but they turn the place upside down forty years after this plenty in his famous letter to trajan gene from bethany will say of christianity is follows for the contagion of this superstition was nominally spread through the cities but also through the villages and country places see was in these years emphasis that paul was greatly disturbed over the troubles in the carinthian church urging apparently wrote a letter to them on that is now lost us that's the reference in first corinthians five who went through before last time you've been listening to sixty six forty the ministry outreach of quincy house and quantity

following through we begin with prayer ooh lord if we live to be one hundred we will never be able to exhaust our praises for your greece you've come to our rescue and brought us eternal life and it seems as though you do that every day you rescue us from from stupid things we say and and foolish things we do and wicked things we think and an ugly things we suggest how valuable is your grace how wonderful a marvelous service that you see us as we are in you you're never lose sight of making us into what we long to be you even though we fight you every step of the way you know the value of pain and and we run from it and yet pain reduces us to dependence and independence we're humbled in in humility we listen and we learned and we want our own way and so we push for it and it seemed like every time we turn around we get our own way and we're miserable having made a mess of things in the process and in grace grace you forgive us wretches though we are you're thank you dear god for forgiving us we lose because we're so competitive we can't stand the loss of losing using not realizing we learn far more when we lose that when we win and then your grace you come alongside you show us that you give us the grace to accept loss some sit in this place today having lost lost someone who is meant the world to them it's all they can do to get past it and you your grace come alongside and you give a strength we come before you are father with more needs then time allows us to list we find ourselves in a new year and yet we bring the old self self with us and all the things that were a part of our previous year apart from your help and your grace race we'll repeat again as we move into the new year we'd like to stop we'd like you to help us cease and desist areas that are offensive unhealthy disobedient and unwise help each one of us we are all culpable and therefore we are all equally the in need of the truth which alone can set us free from things that have held us captive long enough speak through your word this day and in the days to come as we look deeply within and acknowledge what is there rather than wishing it were not speak today our father through through your word through times of quietness through moments of self appraisal and may we as a result zolt be better people even this week because we have allowed ourselves to be examined by your spirit burri do work that no not even a surgeon can do with a scalpel and your word is able to cut down deep into the soul and spirit and bring about an awareness and ultimately achieved finally our father we want you to know oh how grateful we are for the one who paid it all on our behalf even jesus apart from him we can do nothing thing apart from him we are awash adrift in the midst of a culture her that is the same redirect our steps give us discipline and determination began with hope and a realization that changed can come through the one who paid it all for us in the name of jesus we pray everybody said he'd been you're listening to insight for living to search the scriptures with chuck swindle be sure to download his searching the scriptures studies he's by going to insight world dot org slash studies and now the message called stop procrastinating and start following through as we read here god is engaged in our time maybe you've never thought of that maybe thought time was all yours and god has nothing to do with it has everything everything to do with it are times or in his hands in fact that's why the chapter begins and ecclesiastes these three for everything there is a season a time him for every activity under to heaven and down in verse nine what do people really get for all their hard work i've seen the burden god is placed on us all yet god has made everything beautiful for its own time same time so valuable number one because it's so rare so rare sprinted trended wisely don't waste it spent once never to be used again which brings up the second it's irretrievable we we have instant replays in ballgames because on video you can reverse and go again you can reverse and go again you can see it again said there's no such thing in time it's irretrievable done once it's done here's a third reason it's imported it travels levels along with us every day but it has eternity wrapped around it few things are true like that in our lives verse eleven god has made everything beautiful for its own time you know what that says his plan and there are times when things are appropriate and other times they're not there are times that it's right to say something and there are times it's it's better to say nothing i twelve he goes on to say so hot concluded there's nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can people should eat drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor for these are gifts from god i've heard that criticize that's a great great council how seldom i find people really happy in the fruits of their labor part of the reason is we never got it done i would like us to spend and the rest of our time thinking very practically so let me go there first before i take you fijian's five this year you're given time in daily doses which works out in two hours which works down into minutes and even seconds which means this is the perfect time for you to hear these things well the thief of time procrastination exists to steal your incentive to take away your motivation you'll hear something like this and you'll be on the edge of your seat with excitement thinking i'm going to get at that but you don't procrastination wins the day once again here's one for you to deal with mending a relational fence you track me some of you have managed to hurt someone else's feelings you know you've done it but you're not woman enough or man enough to face it because you are many things unsure how it will turn out you might make things worse worse you're now hearing excuses from procrastination you might make things worse the person will come to terms with it it'll be more difficult after if you talk about it and if you just leave it alone leave well enough it isn't well enough so maybe this is the year for you or the month could could i say it the week for you to make that right with another person put that off you know why because it is an emotional anchor that you keep dragging it keeps getting snagged on the bottom of the lake it keeps holding you back it's draining your energy now the personal situation a gentleman and our church said to me a number of months ago we were alone and no one else was near he said to me chuck i'd like to ask you something and it's pretty serious i said okay have i offended you he has i was taken back by i've never been offended by this man and i was quick to say why why no what have i given the impression he said yeah as a matter of fact when i'm with you you seem distant you know let me stop here and say that took courage and admire that even though i've i hadn't in any way been offended my actions were offending him and he was man enough to say to me in a private place like to just get that cleared up if there's something i've i've said or done i said no please believe me and now when i see him making a point hey how are you and and i don't want to be silly about it but i want to assure him i don't mean to see you can give an impression now this is a great time for you to deal with whatever may have happened that caused the communication lines to fall you cannot make the other person do they should do you can only deal with yourself now loved it that the man dealt with it by saying to me is there's there's something between us there is not it reminded me by the way that there was something in my life that i needed to clear up with someone someone else and i have since done that i feel so much better for having done it and when you do it you think why did i put that off so along because relational fences may seem difficult to repair sometime they are admittedly usually they're not we think it's is going to be harder or worse or more difficult than we expected now that i have said all of these things i'm ready to mention the third one your weight okay now upset let's think about your weight how long do you plan to stay fat now i don't have any one of you in mind the reason i can address it is because i fight fight it constantly i am currently a little overweight and i've been very overweight and you have been gracious enough to listen to be when i was is really heavy and now that i'm working on it and i'll admit it to you it's a task that in some of you are gonna do it one of these years and i wanna i wanna help you with some very practical things because because it isn't healthy and one of my excuses was i think when i get to heaven jesus will be fat and so that'll keep me from having to work on it but cynthia says to me that's heresy so don't start thinking like that so don't don't go there won't don't work let me see if i can help you know what you oughta way if you don't your doctor will help you and and in doing so you know what it'll take to get you there okay it's not going to be easy it because you've got to break the habit of eating more than you should eat and not exercising which brings up another subject that's convicting me me right next to my study is our exercise room we have weights we have a lake pushes i don't know what to call them we have you could tell us very much we have done bell's not as big as a dumbbell sitting at my desk but dumbbells in and and we got treadmill so i decided as ridiculous to pay money to put that in there and just collect dust and so i'm using using it more now i'm using treadmill and i don't enjoy it i don't look forward to it so people go oh boy did get on the treadmill that's not me e- i'm not one of those people that in fact i mean they're doing the leg lifts and all that stuff and i decided well i'm gonna i'm gonna start doing curls a red were somewhere so you grabbed the thing and you're going to build up your bicycle i thought i was started fifty pounds well not able to get done bill off the floor i decided well maybe i'll do trending now to work i gave up twenty maybe i could start with a matchbox and go from there lift up a what am i saying stop you're not going to lose twenty twenty six pounds the first month you're not going to start lifting weights massively or running twenty miles you'll do it you'll do well to walk a a half mile walk a half mile a pound this is going to show you the extent of my mathematics if you lose a pound a week that's over fifty pounds a year i was so pleased with myself when i realized i could figure that out that you you can lose fifty two pounds a year if you just do one a day i've sorry one it's one week that's it it's one week you get the point go at it realistically you so you do need to you see obesity is one of acceptable sins among christian people i mean if i brought a bottle a beer here the pulpit down and took a few swigs during my message which reminds me of a joke that i'm going to tell you because it's very funny on at the dan but anyway that would be so offensive but i can show up fifty sixty pounds overweight and you'll just look right past nice of you to do that but i got no business doing all of this to say this is how practical it is if it's got they turn a d written in it and if i'm to give account for the way i handle and treat my body which is the temple of the holy spirit i need to stop laughing about it and i know all jokes about being too fat and virtually every sunday we go to a a place where they serve a buffet and i think why let all of this food go to waste i mean they got five different meat dishes try that i'll try this one on that one you even go in there and get prime rib get breakfast and all that goes with it no you just need one dish it's really the audacity it's not that we wrong thing most likely it's too much of the good things so think about it you and i are now on the same level we all fight it trust me there isn't a day that passes that i'm not aware of it in my life we we have charts we have charts of previous weeks and months and years where i can go back and see what i weighed in what way now every day i weigh one of the secrets weighing every day and i can check because i'm convinced at times scales lie and talk to them but they don't respond and so i hate it when they get on goes plunk in the wrong direction and and i think okay i know what happened that was that mexican food i hear last night and had that midnight snack and also had that box a girl scout cookies that limit is the best by the way i can tell you and on and on and on you got the point let me give you three simple but strong warnings okay as if these haven't been looking at five you so kind to listen to me as i talk talk about these things i think reported and i think procrastination is an enemy and i think you'll be happier would you deal with things you've been putting off that's the only reason audrain plus can akin to defend it in the scriptures and with that in mind turn to visions chapter five promise i won't mention well l. a. may but hammer away at it looking at fisher's chapter five at three very powerful commands having seen what we did and ecclesiastes chapter three i want you to look at visions five this is a chapter written regarding our everyday conduct in fact it ends on a subject that that's addressed to the wives and the husbands and then later on to others but we won't go there right now we're looking at the centre part where the writer paul is asking us to carefully determine what pleases the lord that's really what verse ten saying think about this year and think about the goal this year lord i want to please you you in what i do he will love you no matter what it will not affect his love for you in any way but his spirit is working in your heart to convict you of things that you need to give attention to which is why i mentioned in fact he get specific in verse eleven take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness instead expose them it's shameful the even to talk about things that ungodly people do in secret by the way that's a command we frequently disobey they're evil intentions will be exposed when the light shines on them for the light makes everything visible this is what is said awake o sleeper rise up from the dead christ will give you light now it's in that context verse fifteen steps in here commands efficiencies five verse fifteen be careful how you live don't live like foods but like those who are wise it's a negative command it begins from the greek look accurately how you walk isn't that helpful self-examination is the best kind of examination because i know myself and if i if i don't because i'm married i have a wife who knows we sometime those parts it'd be better than myself i have a physician who never lies to me tells me the truth otherwise otherwise it's called malpractice isn't that interesting but his telling me the truth hurts because he tells me what i don't wanna face ace don't wanna hear it says here look accurately at how you walk take that personally men and women look accurately ridley and how you walk don't lie to yourself don't ignore reality don't act like something else is happening don't rationalize rounded rounded or procrastinate any longer it even goes further don't live like fools but like those who are wise see the word wise is the greek word so feel the name sophia means wise or wisdom here's what the word means understanding branding that results in wise attitudes and conduct it's a convicting topic and chuck swindle has much more to say

essentially handing most of those duties over to the companies themselves ryan talbot alma is with the center for food safety one of the plaintiffs in the latest lawsuit he says shifting that responsibility opens the door foodborne illnesses it's safe to say that go once you have the slaughter plant employees you have no mandatory minimum training education requirements the USDA has had the changes are intended to modernize the poor processing system many in the pork industry also support the changes saying they will bring more efficiencies last fall several labor unions filed a

although we still rank kelly low and forty dollars certainly moving in the right direction over all the data book shows at twenty six percent of the state's children in two thousand eighteen remained

rate worsened most dramatically for black children argues that new mexico is not adequately providing opportunities adi's for children of color it has to be a lot more intentional about ensuring that we are addressing the conditions that children collar living in our state at the same time jimenez knows set hispanic and native american youth have been the biggest improvements in high school graduation rates forces for children's says i would also like to see lawmakers pass common sense gun safety safety loves clifford public news service we are member supported amera line public service dot ORG a difficult time ahead but if we are to be prepared for it we must i shed our stan dan here without fear because i remember i remember that i am here not because of the path that lies before me what because of the path but live behind me i remember that one hundred years we have these machines and after a century of more i remember that matters most still let us make them remember feared veered here and declare your independence of me or in a stand here in phoenix arizona not a from the studios out of the i think he's not the best well we're going to do today dhabi barker's sitting in say good morning good morning and we're going to have mike swat tack is going to come in in the second hour p p m silver cosmetics dot com rob ford slash ernest get your discount so what i'm gonna do is we're going to be talking a lot but he also built his own home he went through a lot aww we'll get the whole story from mike it'd be interesting we've talked to him before and we haven't delved into the occupancy thing you know on talk about so he's gonna walk us through his experiences and so on interesting what to do in the first hour dhabi of course there's a lot of you know is a very talented artist now what's happened you'll see some of the you know where they call these montage collages is is you know this has been a unique art form that you do as a kid and different stuff but then he took it to another level and what is done as you take like this one i really like he takes a comic book tuck and then cuts it up to make cells or frames of the comic so each of these different colors are different shapes from the comic book itself and then on the back and i think you know on the backs of like derek has one and and he goes yeah i want you know where it came from what it is you know some information on it and everything so people know what they're getting and just you just started there's there's not too long ago and here the orrville was done from a bunch of star trek stuff at there's an ordeal comic book now but when i made that last year there wasn't an orval comic so i made the ship the orrville out of star trek comics out of the enterprise basically because i feel like that's essentially what seth macfarlane is doing is making orrville out of pieces of star trek now this iron man one is really cool what why do you pick up particular pose you just go yeah that one that's the one and you just start modeling now well the ironman one was actually a marketing image from marvel and they had already broken it up into colors and so it was very easy for me to sort of like break the comic into colors and textures and then apply it to the sections that they had already chosen and so that just made it very easy but yeah i don't know i just find things that are appealing to me okay now you're selling these and it's a lot of work to how long does it take not to do the ironman took me forty eight hours i think altogether damn okay and then it's like building a puzzle where you don't know what the images and under the pieces fit together i've seen like the one that you guys see over my shoulder here there's collage this too and there yeah that that there is a paint in fact that's it on the screen they're out there you go and then this is a painting of that and i just it's cool sale so giving gimme gimme gimme and wait wait wait wait wait wait on here i dunno signed my work you know you're such a slacker man i you know i'm the one that's always on your but to do that why why why don't you signs them i i took an art history class in college already i don't care what you said okay i work of art ever signed was a sculpture of the virgin mary holding jesus like after the crucifixion and it was done by michelangelo and at the time people didn't sign art it wasn't like thing because the art wasn't about the artist almost all secret in renaissance churches commissioning things but another artist claimed that he sculpted it and michelangelo was so offended that he broke into the church and his name across mary's chest and that's a ah that's what started the trend of signing artwork and so god is the side i didn't wanna do that was still there still there famous piece the thing is no no no i know the piece but i mean as the signature on it and so really yeah ADD carpet energy chiseled his name into it you're like no i made this no other artists made this wow okay it's almost like an active to facing the art but i guess the church defense enough i mean obviously like people like their art signing i'm not opposed to signing art it's just not my impulse impulse that mad had you know because a lot of times you know you have such cool stuff and i go look aloe stuff you need from me i wanted side i mean hell not just a marketing thing for you just makes me look cool all right so now the ironman remember the reason i wanted to do that you're telling me about when you were you had triggered a memory doing this back when you're like second second grade or something we're talking about this a little bit yesterday in the break but i wanted to get into it and it's this exercise is sort of meditative in the same way that building puzzle little is meditative and so i get these strange veins of thought i'm not particularly an iron man fan but i mean i am but he's not my favorite character usually spiderman letterman is my favorite marvel but like working on this piece at triggered a memory for me like is one of my very first confrontations with law and is what i was was talking about on the show yesterday about a climate of fear and it is in second grade i'm a young kid i've definitely got like artistic tendencies and so i i was buying in comic books and bought and getting tracing paper and tracing my favorite pictures from the comic books because i was trying to learn how to draw in i had a teacher who she must have just been upset that i was drawing in class like that must have been what was motivating her but what she said to me was that what i was doing was illegal goal and that i could go to jail for it because ironman is copyrighted and you're not allowed to draw things that belong to other people man star is a second second grader that put the fear of state into me like i thought that the state was looking over my shoulder making sure that i didn't get wise that was copied and her name was the teacher is mrs patterson ms patterson no but it took me a long time to realize that that wasn't true like i literally like win at least a year thinking that i wasn't allowed to draw anymore practically blow on your permanent record draw anything that i saw somewhere else like wow and so put his head game in me about copyrights and how everything's already owned and how and you're not allowed to do anything except like original which if you're learning draw aw that's impossible you can only learn to draw drawing things that have already been drawn well it's a different bowl of fruit yeah it right the first person to draw bowl of fruit will yo him royalties concept had bowl and fruit look snag same apples apples or read okay so to second grade at push at about seven eight years old very impressionable and you're having fun you're doing you and you're getting kind of this is easy can't trace it i can you know whatever you getting started and they go not allowed the and plagiary thing you know for us it was like you know we had to get so conscious about changing words from paragraphs and encyclopedia cla pedia thing they told us anytime six words together and didn't change that's plagiarism six words that's what they told us so there's a sense in which about copyright this is about this whole art form is about appropriating copyrighted material and repurposing it i like the comic books are copyrighted magazines or copyrighted and i'm like no i'm scott play with him anyway right like this is not something i'm willing to be afraid of so part of this is copyrighted this little bitty baby trapezoid i cut out that's a centimeter turn yellow and i put it in his at that one or or is it from the first letter of dr idris barber i've healed many landlubbers could have healed countless more if they were willing to break the law to preserve themselves the crown brown required that i obey leaching privateers who didn't share my oath to do no harm i was forbidden from discussing the treatments i knew patients needed the crown mm claims to protect landlubbers from bankrupting medical expenses but only seduces them into begging for relief while privateers monopolize the management of chronic illness this royal alliance has constructed medical hegemony the denies science discredits alternative remedies and mandates unwanted treatments while callously flee ignoring the victims dying on waiting lists they have produced a society increasingly addicted impoverished diseased and suicidal my conscientious just objections and medical ambitions required not only seeing this cage but leaving it that's why i raised my black banner among pirates the crowns tantrums are irrelevant relevant you own your body without

the earnest handcock show where we're going their arms in law stinking row ads we'd all go on those they gave her we got the for carrier oh yeah we did how was the wien what was the last name anthony levine anthony and so that show was at yeah you just got to listen to it yesterday thing we're really well you know you know i'm glad that they're kind of on our team yeah well they seem you know the wien lean vivian but it was pronounced wien so i don't know if he's trans or didn't didn't tell me the right pronouce whatever you know i know the fans don't care you know but it was definitely achieve evine i looked it up and it's a it's a french spelling vivian it sounds like guy though yeah i haven't seen picked me there are picked whatever doesn't matter on the hollywood whatever they're either presenting putting is female or they're like indonesian and in that sort of strange ethnically ambiguous thing that happens sometimes anyway so i'm enjoyed enjoyed the conversation with wien and it was i think you had a big impact on them and just eliminating that second grade teacher told you over over your shoulder fear thing it didn't even occur to me how much that shaped like my art my whole life was upset about copyright law i i you know i understand the plagiarism thing you know do your own work kind of deal but it was just got in in the way of learning you know while i was looking at getting report okay this is a good this is good this is good fraser wouldn't like copy and paste back back then i mean you had to actually write it you know it wasn't you know we didn't have computers do this copy pasting back when i was a kid in the seventies and so on and i'm going you know he said it right here we meet in your own words i don't have my own words right there's like words just learn learn this thirty seconds and then my own words i was just at process that was a really good example of the process of getting you now of course if you run for officer your politician first thing they do you play drives this entire thing in school and you did this and you're cheating lying bastard reviewed copied something and i'm yeah okay now if they claimed that that was like original pros at they you know l. and then you find it's you know two hundred words exact same thing kind of deal i mean that has something to do your character but i'm an aggregate freedoms phoenix is this art is i play dredged crap out everybody but it's back to the one thing i give a good example is here it's this one i really like this one it's a dead pool frame of dead fool hugging on colossus and you know squeezing his but because i remember that scene yeah you know but he wasn't wearing his outfit yeah that what happens in a scene where deadpool is depressed and wearing a bathrobe and hanging out at the xavier mansion and so he's not in the deadpool costume when that happened so i had to reconstruct correct yeah so but i mean you played your eyes debt you know from the movie so it took it from what could have been in the movie or so i mean you know it's just once you start getting people in that mindset looking for permission slip there's there's there's a whole individual versus collectivist theme that happens in this art form for me because you're asking which part of its copyrighted each individual piece of the collage is copyrighted material and then the entire collage is an original composition so it's like it's like building building an aggregate out of these tiny individual pieces visas where the individual pieces don't fit but for some reason they all fit together it's like taking taking big big mac rapper boxes and making something out of it you know and they and then they come up and say no you're plagiarizing mcdonald's yeah and you go right yeah no i i just so where's the line this is a really good example of how the mindset is to go into your cortex with an ice cream scoop and scoop out some creativity or associations or different things and then as you do a century of copyright or two who or whatever it is copyright really was a copy right you know that the crown granted somebody you're allowed to even print books you know and that copy right from the king is what we're dealing with and i'm like i know i know now now i i wish that would never just go away now being an artist i mean especially like musicians and so on movie v makers is such a freaking out about this copyright thing because everything i can do at this point like you could you could work on an entire project and then get a letter at the end saying oh we think these three notes are too similar to this other song and so you have to scrap your song li like it's it's it's too it's too small field field of permissible things gear see that one video i put up every now and then there's a group of three or four guys and they're talking about why are we really good musicians how can we never had hit song because we never did forecourt song man do four court song did you talking about and and how many combinations of four chords can there possibly be well they you know obviously at certain four chords as made all these hits and that's the point that they're making they're gonna look they're just plagiarizing each other you know forever you know and they you know they you know put a blonde up there and you know two different tempo in says a couple of different words or they put a brunette up there take the same boards and they do it in the south korean pop culture thing it's just it's the same same and they play songs that's the part of their routine on stage yeah is it they start seeing them you know and you go wow and they just they just as a medley of hits blend right in with each other and they're all the same music and then we found out just in the last couple of years that there was a by two guys in europe that right all the hawks walks what do you mean just write them all like the sitting room they're like give this one to beyond say onto right i i'll pull it up ah there's a phoenix man i think is is it's the same as art you can't really play music without learning to play something thinks someone else wrote i and there's a culture of bands that cover the songs of bands that they like and it's an honorific right it's the honor those bands on those songs and celebrate them them but if you're if you're a performer now you can't cover other people songs without a license permission i wrote in search i just two guys right all hid sars and this comes up every song you love was written by the same guys i just f y okay i'm i'm not sure i believe that after it was find out after chris brown beat riyan the night before the two thousand nine grammys many fans inexplicably turned against her some out blaming blaming her for the incident her handlers were forced or faced with the task of rehabilitating her image reintroducing the strong among independent woman fans had come a bit inflexibly it turned out to love there was only one answer def jam records LA read realized convened the mother of all song camps stromer camp okay and then they you know these two guys did wrote a bunch of her songs and stuff so so this is an talk about all the other people that they write for and stuff the sweet beets and the pop music and whatever and it's these two guys a- and are you a cryptocurrency

let's with ernest handcock to be a part of the show call six two two six four twenty eight hundred in a lot of time to be putting into peace aren't like that so i'm wondering you know how much by head you do one how big would it be and how much would that cost sell these four yeah that's something i'm still kind of figuring out it's sort of funny because it was passive like in the last month i did twelve of them so i go seem to be averaging one a month last i tell you said in the last month you mean last year okay most of them are not very big that one the batman one is like eight and a half by eleven ironman is eight by ten the biggest one that i've done was the stop wars one which was fourteen by fourteen in which sold the derek for eight hundred bucks and then the iron man when i sold for four hundred bucks which is smaller i don't really know how to price because like if you wanna go down long time to make it that's how i was doing the math and that's about ten dollars an hour which is not as not my rate but but i mean artists hard to price so i don't know i would do commissioned work the iron man one was a request from someone and they bought it so a lot why they see some of the other stuff that you're doing yeah because i bring this stuff around and conventions table for survivor max and so i put it out and people see it and they like it but i definitely enjoy doing it it's like for me like i'm doing things with my brain all the time doing visual work and i'm doing verbal work and so my brain gets tired writing all the time and so i need something that's not about words to calm down and so for me this is almost like it was recreation it was it was a way for me to sort of decompress my brain after a day of intense writing and but i think that it's just as valuable so i want to get more into showing it and selling it and doing commissioned works and doing more conceptual pieces like i've done a lot of pop culture pieces this year of comic book characters especially in some other things but you know i'd like to get into more conceptual pieces like i want to do a tap GOP what do you mean i have this idea of something i think i'm going to do this just with my local town in beaufort but i wanna do a photo essay of city of some kind meaning like all the photos those are of urban environments whether it's like mailboxes or curbs or oil slicks or metal or whatever and then take those photographs cut them up break them into colors and build the landscape out of it so everything every piece of the collage is urban but the overall composition is nature like i think thou look really cool so you have like skyscrapers made out of pine trees around pines made out of skyscrapers also you wanted to have bob build a composition that looks like a forest or hillside around like something like it made up the town yeah made of urban pieces of a particular particular town now it's my town is the easiest one to take photos of for me no i mean that'd be cool for each town you know you go in it'd be like a the commission's card thing you can do the hollywood sign out of photos of hollywood that'd be cool yeah well you know the auto al's the mexican chain restaurants that we go up there you know big giant gods like twelve feet by two sixteen feet collage of you know old license plates and bumper neil that that big thing that's up there at school and i go yeah that was kinda it's americana kind of thing is something you know i'm going that is somebody put some effort into that you know it's just a piece of art that's just hanging on the wall up there or something but it's very interesting is three dimensional you know it's like hubcaps or whatever and i'm going if you did that kind of thing in a painting neil scrap so what you're doing a picture of the town you know of the era of the place piece and then did a landscape overlooking whatever their famous you know pretty spot is you know and it's like here in phoenix on north seventh street going through over north phoenix mountains this is a big valley in the middle of the valley there's a couple of mountains you know just little mountains that are not big but they're are mountains big giant piles rock and you had that scene but made of all the skyscrapers downtown phoenix kind of think i'm sure that's what you're talking about right yeah it's like i want there to be a kind of relationship between the the overall composition and the piece is that it's made of i did this report one one year it's not in this collection but it's on my computer somewhere i took photos from pork fest and then built them into the gadston snake see that's kind of cool stuff because it's like it's not only just like don't tread on me the snake is like don't tread on this entire community you know oh aw boy there's a whole bunch of second amendment sanctuary cities that are begging you to do that yeah i mean there was definitely definitely a the second amendment element to that i remember i built the head of the snake out of gold and silver coins but i made the tail of the snake out of ammunition rattling mean the rattlesnake doc was hey you know these are like you know that i'm wonder you know that's one thing you think that as time goes on there's going to be a my hometown you know kind of thing especially as you're getting into the battle against the man you know for whatever and and i think that that would be popular build the statue of liberty out of pictures of tanks none of the right color the artillery but there's concepts like that for me that's always that's always what what it's about is is how do you how do you how do you focus focus on the component parts in a larger aggregation which is such like i don't know why that fits in my brain so much that feels like what libertarianism is it's like liberty is this one overarching concept but we're all individuals making up this whole movement there's no grand central plan it's emergent order you know what i mean where you mean i mean like so isaac is on the screen they're now it's the stormtrooper like each of those pieces don't really look like a a piece of isaac there's no there's no grand central like plan to like make isaac if it were it would be smooth it would be it would be seamless it would be regimented but instead it's dislike chaotic jumble and the image has to kind of emerge from this chaotic jumble and i feel like that's the way that that's the way the liberty movement has worked work being tired time i've been in it but that's how anything works really is that the bigger picture that you finally see isn't the thing you plan at the beginning it's it's this it's this thing that emerges from all the tiny little decisions along the way why would you say that that's what it is man i mean but i mean you know wii how does it what do you mean emerges from without an intent my my my stem said this to me over christmas break she said that when she he finally realized what she wanted to do with her life she realized that all the things that she'd been doing up to that point were training her for what she wanted to do even though she didn't know it so like what she does right now is like forgiveness workshops it's almost like relationship workshops but what she originally got into when she first got out of law school was divorce so she used it'd be a divorce attorney matt and then like divorce attorney turned into divorce mediator turned into dispute mediator turned into and now she's got this whole bazaar spiritual practice about how how genuinely forgive people and she's like all the tools that she learned back in you know divorce mediation are things is that she's using now but she didn't know that this is where she was going she was like sort of building along the way and this emerged out of these small decisions that didn't seem like a big picture and it's the same now like this ironman thing that happened to me with the second grade teacher i didn't think at the time that that was going to emerge into me like doing piracy chrissy but it totally built onto that and this piracy thing like you named your son corsair imagine that you were going to be part of a pirate movement when that happened but it's this little decision that builds along the way into this larger picture kinda kinda how long have you been pirate well l. realize pirate it's been a while you know kinda thing yeah kind of merge okay i see what you mean but i mean when you when you start your intent is i mean you kind of got an idea what you wanna do right not always not even often maybe only a handful of those most of them i have no idea at the beginning so you start with i like this color silver out of the comic book yeah i'm gonna put right there right and then i'm going to find something that fits with it finds something that meshes with it see what emerges out of it he merging art jackson pollock sort of are you feeling confused about the current

your art thing and song because i find this interesting and the mind set the a process that you go through and so on you've gone through a lot of different you know i kind of projects and stuff that you like doing this is kind of a new one this this has been your willingness to destroy some classic some valuable comics have destroyed i i had an infinite gone on lytton number one which i bought in ninety-three when it first came out but then they made the movie out of it and the price skyrocketed on the value that comic and i was like i'm gonna cut this up how much was it for comic book deal twenty bucks bought it for two dollars but it's seventy five dollars online right now because they made a movie out of it but do you save the leftover pieces and put it in a box they're all they're all in folders that are separated by color and texture yeah i keep i keep all that stuff fleming with the the collage you did to somebody i haven't yet if a person wanted them then that would be fine i l. i would i use them back you know what you did i wanted you know freaking in sealed in the back in a pouch of attached as often yeah sometimes i make other collage out of the orrville pooh that's double plagiarize isaac piece those came from the same comic the batman peas i took a a lot of those scraps and i made buttons out of i've got a dozen or so buttons that are made right out of the comic book i wonder if that would make here is the collage collage here's a dozen buttons here's the leftover pieces in a kit that you go and everything and that's an extra one hundred thirty two hundred thousand eighteen cents you package all of the pieces together in a bag and you say here's a DIY collage kit make your now that i did that i've been doing do you remember we talked about this about the pirate ship thing that i'd be like browsing antiques or something i'd take a picture and it's a hey if you send me this much bitcoin all by this and make this into this i do that with comic books like i saw i came across a wolverine number one for twenty dollars an antique store which is a good price like they're the fifty dollar comic and so like i post it i'm like should i cut this up should i make an art project and it's like while i'm walking around the store i'm like gauging people's response to whether or they think i should make a wolverine peas what facebook or something yeah facebook or twitter and people keep recommending instagram thing i'm gonna have to bite that bullet and get over to instagram because it seems like that's why are people congregate so we got when we first when back when we got all our social media we're trying out everything instagram was probably the most traffic you know when we were doing different stuff at how i would use it as when we would go to all these festivals because i could just go click take an instagram and then you know what a comment comment or something and it go up and then donna was pulling the pictures from instagram to put on freedoms phoenix oh sure and then we had almost on my butt about doing that and then instagram degrom got bought by you know commie for grammar whoever facebook go to now or something everything could solid date it and they get your database and everybody hey that does everything with anybody and they map it out and i just don't wanna play it'd be interesting because we're always talking about what's the new social media platform because facebook is such garbage and so we're like what about what about you know mastodon or whatever but like it'd be interesting to do an audit of the existing popular social media platforms and which which ones do and don't do this the most you know what i mean like instagram is known by facebook as far as i know so they're gonna be they're not going to be in bed with the government the way that zuckerberg berg is but they probably do have a community standard censorship policy and graham is owned by ah facebook yeah they all are you post on instagram automatically owned by disney this this is getting your we're laughing about this now it's going to be weird you know let's see instagram also known formally as idea insta- is an american photo video sharon social network service owned by facebook inc i'll never mind was created by kevin and mike krieger launch in october ten exclusively exclusively on a version of android devices released a year and a half later damn in april twelve following followed by feature limited good website interface in november twelve a firearm blah blah blah and then went on windows ten tablets and it's the same censorship ship policy probably is no they know they got what it's whatever the hell they want i guarantee you that yeah you know i mean that's the point you know that a making it's when you build up and you get oh yeah yeah not so much because i remember that was happening to you know when they see when did they buy it had to be after eleven ten see when did they buy place book say when it got bought but yeah they're they're all bought by these guys and they pay a billion trillion dollars to do it it's facebook acquired the service for approximately one billion dollars in cash and stock doc wow already then you know so the the let's see after rapidly gained popularity one million registered hard users in two months ten million a year one billion as of may nineteen damn aren't aren't the most light photo on instagram is a picture of an egg posted by the account world record egg created with the sole purpose of surpassing passing the previous record of eighteen

state that's according to the federal bureau of labor statistics this is a federal lawsuit filed this week over recent changes to how safety inspections are handled at pork processing plants born the story from our mark mowing boy in two thousand nineteen the USDA revised how inspections are handled at slaughterhouses by essentially handing most of those duties over to the companies themselves ryan ryan talamante is with the center for food safety one of the plaintiffs in the latest lawsuit he says shifting that responsibility opens the door to foodborne illnesses it they say hey that you know once you have the slaughter plant employees who have no mandatory minimum training education requirement rush the USDA has said the changes are intended to modernize the poor processing system many in the pork industry also support the changes saying they will bring more efficiencies his last fall several labor unions filed a federal lawsuit in minnesota over provision that remove maximum line speeds when bringing hogs to slaughter that's who contend intense that changes compromise worker safety as well as food safety the latest suit as the court dismissed the new rules a hearing in the lawsuit suit filed a minnesota is scheduled for later this what finally ross brown tells us there is positive news for kids in the annual data book released wednesday by new mexico voices children but the child advocacy group says significant improvements are still needed the data book tracks child wellbeing being from one year to the next and found a slight improvement in child poverty rates in two thousand eighteen it also shows that child health insurance rates and preschool attendance have improved over time time teen birth rates continue to decline according to james jimenez with voices for children who says that indicator is important to watch a trend that has been moving in the right direction for many years now and although we still rank fairly low and forty fourth is certainly moving in the right direction overall the data book shows at twenty six percent of the state's children in two thousand eighteen remained at or below the federal poverty line which made new mexico forty ninth in the nation a change from forty eighth place the year before the report found that even more hispanic children thirty percent were living in poverty while the percentage of native american children still higher at forty one percent while the state the whole so a larger share of kids living in high poverty areas the rate worsened most dramatically for black children he minutes argues that new mexico is not adequately providing opportunities opportunities for children of color it had to be a lot more intentional about ensuring that we are addressing the conditions that children colorado living in in our state at the same time jimenez it's not that hispanic and native american youth have seen the biggest improvements in high school graduation rates forces for

because of the secret sauce what right yeah well my niche is high silver concentration cosmetic products and there's nothing else really like them the cream there's no other all natural throw cream i've got a new clear base code nail polish with five hundred parts per million a silver that some people asked for lip balms than than the colloidal silver and all of them have the highest amount of silver that you can get in those products and on the colloidal silver also the smallest it's nana's articles okay now this is one thing that i said on the show yesterday or day before and see if you can help me me out i was correct or not by getting the particle smaller day lodge less in the system so you don't get that blue thing is that an accurate the statement right yes if you have large particles they can accumulate in your body not flush out and then he turned into smurfs eventually but with the smaller particles that's not gonna happen right so and you have a secret supernanny away of making them smaller you gotta kill me if you tell me or what pretty much yeah i don't like patents i hate pat i've got about a dozen patents but it wasn't my fault and at any rate watch looking for other companies i was doing work for decided they wanted to patent what is working what what is it that you you got patents on things associated with electric submersible pumps for the oil industry bearings and pump stages and using all industry right oklahoma okay so you're all up so what are you doing now you retired tired doing what you want you know chilling out what yeah i'm doing a little consulting still and you know something comes along and then i'm working on the little business and staying busy around the house you know and this last year i really learned after a good deal of

needing to develop products and i can develop products and i need a marketing team kind of join forces listen it's working out pretty good really well what is the marketing that you're going to be using they're talking about social media internet had is it display advertising television i mean what were they pitching well by marketing i'm talking about basically visiting companies trying to get the products addicts on store shelves and that kind of thing as far as the internet goes i've got stores at shop affi- and we shop with crypto and you went to hold freedom oriented daikin do it myself

other interesting from the second letter of captain mark any pirate knows that commerce is communication markets condense oceans of information into a single price innovations and communication are circumventing circumventing the scrutiny of the crown this signals a change in the coin of the realm the crown uses digital currency to surveil sensor seize and destroy wealth at will so a pirate currency must protect us from this weaponized money we need to move funds further faster cheaper and without third party observation basing decisions on an accelerating waiting flow of information so pirates require nearly instantaneous transactions with no arbitrary limits on volume or artificial influences on fees most most importantly a pirate currency must preclude centralization otherwise it will become another link in our chain to the crown a superior currency will result in the obsolescence the lessons of the coin of the realm and the extinction of the crown itself trade above the grid

got some scuttle but here a little scott but says some scuttlebutt says silver is pirate medicine pirate if you're a pirate got some soviet -pired you'd definitely dr barber is is definitely uses some silver now this gives a lot of history for over thirteen hundred years so we're nitrate has been used on wounds silver sutures are used out prevent infections is eighteen fifty two you have on and on and on and on and on about silver niche use and why and wealthy people were healthier they drank from silver dishes containers babies got silver spoons this is a big deal one thing that i remember that kind of sparked my association shen with this is when bordon's they just went out of business went bankrupt i just saw that was a big milk company in newborns milk i don't know if you've ever remember seeing that you're atlanta they were big employers who i was a kid and they said damn soy boys put them out of business or something i they business model all all that sure they've nails pensions or something i mean there's always some other crap you know corporations but what happened was they would deliver milk when i was a kid you get your milk delivered and a and i hear tell back when dimes used to be silver they would drop them in the milk oh that's interesting you know keep it because you you know it's not refrigerator you he put down the stoop there they would drop you know mike tell us about that how they would use silver and disinfecting star okay back in the old days like on the wagon trains i had a problem with my microphone minute go to can you hear me still nine here yeah sometime i have the button off yeah yeah it was on my hand accidentally yanked the cord but at any rate back in the days of the wagon trains they would put a silver coins in their water supply and that would help keep the door and bad when they were going across long stretches dry deserts and stuff had california and there's documentation of people people using silver either to put the drinks in her dropping silver in the drinks going back you know thousands of years you know there there's royalty that wouldn't drink something unless it had been stored in silver because they just do that was better for nail fungus i see on here you know for more people got nailed fungus you can use it for that and there was something else scott my i hear it was vaginal fungus the need to do some silver baby you need to do systems zillions smelling kind of you know yeast year what you know is there anything silver doesn't in kill people all the true i don't think there's ever a document of anybody being killed by silver a bullet you're not reading your comic books but yeah kills all bacteria viruses mold mildew funguses yeast and protozoan parasites i mean all that in fact why it's reported resistance of course this is all reports i don't know this i'm not an expert in this it's more i've read i haven't seen anything about why silver though why what the heck you're a well what do you call it you're an engineer your thought bug what are you well it was originally an artist but then led me engineering because i got into drawing mechanical alkyl drawings and then i became an engineer once i got into the engineering environment and this kind of an interesting path but ended up becoming a mechanic or getting a degree in mechanical engineering but how old are you sixty one really i didn't think you're that old i mean i met you and so on i feel better better now maybe i can look at it well it's silver you see i see see no gotta put yourself on a poster for oil of olay silver or something the earth has we're talking about something at the molecular level so it's probably the silver molecule is just like shrapnel for these things yeah how does that work mark it if it can take out any microbe and you wonder what's the mechanism is it the ions breakdown some cell wall some what's the operating system for this it disables the cellular metabolism at a very basic level they can't build a resistance to what i understand and you know there's other metals that do that you know exotic you know that's why zinc is really good for a lot of different things you know and and copper and copper you know this is you know we were talking about yesterday there was a story i remember having freedom mhm cenex about architects and construction of hospitals the medals it they're using on the handles are infusing it make an alloy of copper silver over and different other stuff because they have so much disease and everything of course at a hospital but fay it be nice if they had the surface itself itself just killed it instead of them because i don't see a lot of janitors going around wiping down inside of hospitals very much i they get the four shiny though i we know they definitely working on that floor but i'm thinking as probably other places too so the handles and doorknobs and all that kind of stop there just making them out of different metals to just kill everything so i'm like all right cool i both at the y. silver why why why how'd you get on this what you're being an engineer now worked in all business and all of a sudden doing silver what up of that well yeah it is kind of odd but it turns out that making these products is really more mechanical and engineering process challenge so it's actually something that's pretty well suited for a mechanical engineer and what got me started on it was back in two thousand fourteen they had the big bowl thing in africa where thousands of people were supposedly dying and then they brought started bringing the US to the hospital back now you've got FDA approved getty bullet vaccinated yay yeah in fact that's exactly what i did is check see okay well what are they gonna do if this gets out and experimental vaccines that was the plan was like well i don't think so and i started looking a little more and discovered that the country of sierra sierra leone had approved colloidal silver as an effective treatment against ebola and you know now is trended abbas some UN thing you know put that out too well i don't have all the UN was but i know the government was doing everything they could with their global toadies to stop the shipments of colloidal silver to sierra leone and but it was the thing you know and so i started looking into it and discovered all what you know silver does microbes fellas interesting and then started researching products and i was really shocked to find out that very few of the products are actually good products most so the maclear products which only contain ions which aren't very effective because they react with salts and things on contact you become ineffective and then others were had a lot of proteins and polymers in them only will small handful of products that are actually good good and they were really expensive and so let me off down the path figuring out how to make my own cool come back mike sure tell us about you know he's on the alone prairie of you know and building there and how his mindset neil with the man and i'm gonna pull up some of these civil why why did you move to the shire i moved here to the shire because there's other people around who take liberty justice seriously as i do i moved to the shire because i saw videos of people people challenging authority and thought that i could get support myself it called to me like do this right now i wanted to be around people like me who got it and then once i got here i knew there was no i wanted to be i've always wanted to change the world so i moved to the shire to join people who were actually working ving towards doing the same thing the people here are awesome loving and positive it was for the adventure and for the feeling of something important is happening here and i just wanted to come to sort of be part of that visit shire society dot com to read and sign the shire society declaration and learn the reasons why if you love liberty pretty you should immigrate to the shire plus connect with others via the forum at shire society dot com that's shire society dot com the protection of life liberty and properties free state price but it's an it's an effort to move twenty thousand people who understand it's about about demonstrating to the entire country yeah we can have a free market truly free market and making it just a great place to live it's the the world's largest fallen trysts libertarian community and it's it's only getting bigger that's amazing to be able to move to other people's like passionately believe in being free
