"In the Black Sea when it was 90°, so yeah. Well, and we mentioned that this is part of the EU at this time, but it is not on the Euro. It's still on the left, as I recall. That's right. Well, anything else we want to say about cloud dev, we need to start wrapping this up. We haven't said anything about the food. Okay. Throughout the country, you can count on really good a Mediterranean Greek influence. So there are great shopska salads. So everywhere you can go you can get a great salad that's tomatoes cut up cucumbers with feta cheese over them that was amazing. No olives? No, very few olives. I don't interest it. Lots of feta cheese, lots of feta cheese. When we went into a grocery store and what would be the equivalent of our whole daily case here at home was all different types of feta. Well, I didn't know there were that many different types of either, but everything's better with feta. Yeah. And the other thing is the soup, which was called territory, which is a cold cucumber soup. Truly delicious too. And then there's a lot of meats. Sausages, cut meats, good seafood. There's good seafood everywhere. We had tripe soup as well. Tripe soup is very popular. It's maybe a national dish. And we didn't say much about this, but there are orthodox churches everywhere. So that's a big part of what you see in their beautiful, their grand, if you're someone who appreciates church architecture, they're worth seeing excellent. As we go to wrap this up, you are standing at the prettiest spot that you saw in Bulgaria. Where are you standing? What are you looking at? Well, I guess I would have to say looking out across plovdiv from that Roman theater. Patty, different answer. Another part of our trip we were in the open mountains. Okay. And we got to stay up in the Adobe mountains in a cabin and it was beautiful. Okay. Excellent. And one thing that makes you laugh and say, only in Bulgaria. There's water everywhere. Water spigots everywhere. And it's good water. So in the city of Sofia, there's these hot thermal water public water fountains that people go and collect water from day in and day out. They run 24 hours a day. And in the countryside, we didn't figure this out until we got to talk to someone who knew there were picnic areas around springs coming out of the side of the mountain. Somebody had tapped a spring and there was a spigot coming out with water running. Again, 24 hours a day. And we found out it's a wonderful tradition of when someone dies in a family who is important to people. They tap a spring and build a little picnic area there and maybe the equivalent of like an eternal flame for us. The thought of the water running forever in honor of that person. Interesting. People who live in the cities will go far out into the mountains to find a place where there isn't one of these spigots, and they'll build one there. Yeah. And then they'll maintain it. And their family will maintain it. And so some of them were very elaborate. We passed one that had a table that had a cloth on it, and someone told us, yes, somebody comes in replaces that cloth about once a month. Interesting. And if you had to summarize Bulgaria in just three words, what three words would you use? Friendly? Surprising and historic. Patty. Friendly, orthodox churches, as one word. And a deep history that I was completely unaware of before I got there..

"The roads were excellent. The signage was good, even though it was in Cyrillic. And we didn't have any trouble as U.S. drivers getting around and leaving our way and there was, you know, there was no problem with police checkpoints or anything that would deter you from running a car and taking a trip. And you should do it. There's excellent Internet so you can pretty much count on using Google Maps. Even in really rural areas, our cousin who works there and lives there said he has better Internet in that country than he does when he's back here in the state. And Barry inexpensive, we bought a Bulgarian sim card when we arrived in the country as we did in each of the countries who were visiting and I don't suppose we spent 15 or $20 for a month's worth of high-speed Internet access between the two of us. That's like half an expensive meal. The other thing that you need to know is that you can not rent a car elsewhere in Europe and drive into Bulgaria, which is what we thought we were going to do. Okay. It has to do with insurance. Spirit several stories. Somebody said the people outside of Bulgaria think the cars are going to get ruined if they when they're in Bulgaria. I don't know, but that's something people need to know. We flew into Sofia and then rented our car. And we understood from the current rental agencies that you can rent a car in Bulgaria and drive out. You can't rent a car out of Bulgaria and drive in. Okay. Most all the cars there are manual transmission. You can get automatic transmission coming pretty much true in Europe. Yeah. By default you would expect a manual transmission car and you can reserve a automatic often or a robot transmission. That was one I had recently which is halfway in between almost like an automatic but not good. Back in the 70s Volkswagen offered something called an automatic stick. Yeah, this is like that exactly. From plovdiv, there are three side trips that we'd recommend. One of them is to see the thracian tombs and Kazan Mach. And those the thracian tombs date back about 5000 years and this was a culture that came in from the south east of what's now Bulgaria and settled there in some of the fertile valleys. And raised a lot of wine and at least to hear the Bulgarians talk about it drank as much as they raised because they were notoriously drunk. But.

"Might have also helped that we were there in September as opposed to the summer, especially when we were in opal. There was a little bit of a dead feeling to it, which we didn't mind. I mean, we weren't really looking for nightlife type stuff. But a number of the hotels looked like they were maybe closing down for the season. That's something probably to be aware of, depending on what time of year you're traveling and you're actually looking for. Well, the other thing is, if I use the term I discovered, I really mean from a U.S. point of view more. So this region was the hotspot before the iron curtain came down. If you wanted to vacation in your behind the iron curtain, the black seacoast was one of the places that you would go. And so it was probably very much hopping at the time, and then lost some of that tourism as people could had other options. Basically, but it has been discovered obviously for, you know, 2000 years ago, but less well-known, probably to this audience. Yeah. And we did hear, especially when we were in a saber, we heard a lot of people speaking Russian. Sure. Yeah. Tourism flows. East to west into that probably. Just a little side comment to that is when we were in the saber, we stopped to hear some music being played at a street cafe one night and it was a Bulgarian singing at all Beatles program. Okay. And there was a table a very loud liver puddling, who are encouraging the singer on and singing along. It seemed entirely out of context in a very funny way. That's funny. Now, you had mentioned a story about a church you visited up in the past when you were in the plovdiv side of the pass. But you were going to tell a part of that later. And I don't remember what you were going to tell later. All right, when we get to plovdiv and talk about day trips from there, we'll talk about that. And we can move on to cloud because that's where we're headed right now. Well, plan tips just amazing. And I think this year, in particular, it was the cultural city for the EU. Okay, European capital of culture. Yes. Yes. And I think that's something important to know that Bulgaria is part of the EU, so there are things certain areas where you see sort of development money coming in. Sure. Which is I think making it more tourist friendly and especially when you're driving, they use consistent road signage. I think with the rest of the EU. So there's some things about that that are helpful. So plovdiv was all spruced up. This is its year..

"And then there were other places in the city. We could drive to, but we felt that that was a great location to be centered in. And were you finding out through Airbnb or through some local site or how did you find out? Through Airbnb. Yep. We did use Airbnb and we did use some local connections for some of the lodgings we did when we were there as well. But not that one. That was Airbnb. We found the Airbnb's where we had good luck with them. The quality of them were described accurately. It was a little bit more rustic. If somebody's a high end traveler, these were not that. Okay. It was what we were looking for. We were in somebody's home. We had our own area of the home with our own patio, but was not a luxury, but it put us right where we wanted to be. Excellent. One thing that I'd note about veliko turnovo is it is on hills. And so if you have any mobility issues, as we with our older joints sometimes do, the combination of hills and cobblestones is something you need to be careful of and something you'd want to pay attention to when you were choosing where you wanted to stay. If you were visiting city. What else do we want to see while we're in velika turnover? While we were there, we took a couple of day trips. One of them we went to visit something called the boob luja meeting center or booed luja memorial. It's a gigantic assembly center that was built during the communist era to host communist committee meetings and looks like a flying saucer perched on the top of a mountain and has a big spire standing next to it. And then some monuments or sculptures that surround it at lower levels on the mountain. And it was really an extraordinary thing to visit. I would have to say of all the things we visited, it's one of the things that stands out the most. We had to work a little bit to get to it. You had to drive quite a ways to get to it. Scattered throughout the country. There's remnants of the communist era. There's a fair amount of communist era statues. And this place is crumbling in a sense now. There's some talk of trying to restore it. But because it's crumbling, it's almost mysterious symbolic remembrance of the communist era. And it's huge. You've come to it from a distance. You really can't imagine how you huge it is until you actually are on top of it. So there's no visitor center. There's no people there. There were maybe 6 other people visiting it. I feel like you've accomplished something just getting there. And it was striking. Well, and I'm just looking at some of the history of this, and it looks like the Bulgarians in 1868 fought a what sounds like the Bulgarian Alamo there, if you will, where a small band of Bulgarians were defeated by a larger band of Ottoman Turks, but in only for Bulgarians survived, but that helped spur the liberation of Bulgaria from the Ottomans ten years later. So that's why the historic significance of this. But as you say, built not way back then, but built during the communist era. He has the battle you're talking about is the battle of shipka pass. Okay. The monument is built near the top of ship capacity. We approached on this trip from the north side of the pass when we went out from plovdiv on another day trip, which we'll talk about a little bit later..

"On the corner where you get what you need. Now, Sophia is the big modern capital, but my favorite city in Bulgaria really is plovdiv. Yuri tell us about this is amazing. It's amazing. Yeah. It's developed tremendously. Its culture is just it's got a lot of Ottoman architecture. It has a lot of balconies and sort of a Turkish elegance. Raman architecture as well, lots of Roman Reigns. Every day there is something happening in blood. Right in the main square there's a big pedestrian boulevard and then you look under it, there's a little park and you see Roman ruins. Mosaics, as well, recently they uncovered the large basilica of plenty with some of the most spectacular Roman mosaics that we have. So the two great cities to see in Bulgaria would be Sofia and plovdiv. Yes. Back in communist times, you couldn't travel very far you didn't have a lot of money. I think everybody went to the Black Sea coast. Varna was is just this is communism. We all vacation the same way. We're all equal varna. Today you can go anywhere in the world for your beach vacation, would somebody still choose to go to the Black Sea coast? Oh, actually, if you come to Bulgaria and especially in the summer, you see beautiful beaches, no rocks there, it's pure sand for miles and miles and a lot of people not only Bulgarians, but people from all around Europe and Russia still come there. So if you're going on a vacation in Bulgaria to the Black Sea, Bulgaria faces the Black Sea, where would you go? Well, still many people go to the southern Bulgarian Black Sea coast, but if you're clever traveler, you'll go to the northern one, better beaches, not over crowded, much more affordable. And that would be just next to Romania, right? On the Black Sea guest. It will be to the north from varna and to the south from the border with Romania. This is travel Rick Steves.

"This is what's trending right. So family members of 9 11 victims will gather at the National September 11th Memorial Museum to read aloud the names of those killed in the 9 11 attacks and in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

"Welcome back to the show killer with you wait non. Joey Logano who is one of those press Jenkins right now so they just hand the phone whom I would now. That's what usually works. We'll get joey on when we get him on a lines are able to sneak on in here in the third hour one, eight, hundred, eight, seven, eight play. I think it's fascinating. In the world of soccer that you could be big a soccer fan of the world and there's literally no way you could remember every team because is just too many and some of them are new on something changed their names, but there's just too many. And Autumn Hearts for my team watching now now and North Macedonia. to years ago, they changed the name of their country from Macedonia to North Macedonia, which is Kinda Weird. Like we have a West Virginia, but we don't have a south. Or. East or North Virginia sometimes, these things happen. It's like we have Sudan and I'll. Sudan. But the team is called skin. Yeah. and. The manager of Tottenham Hotspur Joe's Marino who's very accomplished about as accomplish as come with all the silverware he's one with. Inter and. With Round Madrid and. Chelsea menu all these teams Porto. he never said I never heard of him. Yeah. WHO HAS That's one of the things I love about it endlessly fascinating thing and then like you all use to do is just go on wikipedia and it's usually a team that's been around for like a hundred. Years. And in the first round of qualifying, they had to play at PLO thieves and if you know Bulgaria like I, do it's the third biggest city in Bulgaria after Zolia and Varna on the black, sea. Or Sophie, as we say, ZOFIA Lokomotiv Plovdiv kind of this digital team leftover. The Cold War a lot of those teams called sky, CSKA, those were Red Army teams. And you basically were in the army. But. You are also on the team. Like the Red Penguins, we talked about that with the. Will have that documentary. But. playing in the National Stadium and scooped yeah. The capital of north. Macedonia with a track and. It's just there's You know growing up as an American The only time we would get a team we never heard of. An expansion team? and. We've heard of the expansion teams. So there's there's never been a case in my life where my raiders my as warriors, sharks played a team and I said, I never heard of him. And they never played anybody outside of the United States? Unless you talk about the raiders having a preseason game in Winnipeg against the packers. And they just. They just didn't do that stuff I. Guess it Spring Training during the WBZ might have a game against the Japanese national team or the Israeli team. Something like that. was just kind of a kind of a fun little exhibition. So the the bloodlines that run deep and I mean deep and soccer. Going back a lot of times to the eighteen hundreds. Every country. Is Chock full of teams. Now, you might see like you know, north, Macedonia has their own league. Sodas you know even the Faroe Islands, which isn't even a country protectorate of Denmark but according. To feed their country like as I, like to mention the Olympics and in. The US it's Great Britain, but in soccer for different countries, Northern Ireland Scotland England and Wales. and. So each of these countries have their own leagues and Lower Leagues and Lower Leagues and Lower Leagues like I was looking I I've been to Luxembourg I've been to leashes Stein. Leash Stein the capital of vodkas literally drive the whole country not even. Notice it it's another sort of digital. Leftover from the days of fiefdoms and principalities and things like that. But. They have a first division, the second division third. It's it's amazing to me, and that's because it is the world game nothing comes close to it nothing as far as being the world game. there'll be places that you go anywhere in the world and they'll be sports where they get Outta basketball they know what's going on. Football and a baseball is a little bit different but you could go to any single country on the face of the earth. And roll out of soccer ball and everybody knows what's going on. And So, there's always a little bit of worry when my team who's in the Champions League final last year as playing a team like Skamania. In, sculpture North Macedonia for a giant killing because this is the biggest game in the history of that team. Just to play any English team. Probably for them to play a team from Sarah team from Lalita or the Bundesliga. It would most likely be the biggest. Game. In the history of that team, so you always have to be a little bit wary. About that type of situation. I remember when? After the. During the World Cup when I was working at the community center, we'll get back to that in a second because we only have a few minutes with Joey Logano who's been on the show many times over the years, and he's getting ready to race Sunday in the south point four hundred. On Las Vegas. Joey. Having another really good season currently. Fourth in the standings and Joey just to get this out of the way, there's a little bit of bad blood at Bristol is everything cool with all that or is that just kind of humdrum happens every other race? Or? Under racetrack with one goal in mind. So.

"The white sox are rolling right now there are absolutely rolling they are the best team in the American League? and. That's a team that went out there and paid money. In fact, the only team that's better than them. Are the LA dodgers. And I just wondered when you think about the dodgers. World series. Nineteen eighty-eight ouch. The as have won a world series more recently than the dodgers. The dodgers have no excuse because you're in an era out. There's no more frank mccord situation. There's no more you know don mattingly whatever they they have a manager that they like. They have great talent. They add to that talent if they don't get it done this year. If they don't win the world series. especially. When you look teams that have won at like just like it last year. What what mirror they gonNA look him. They get knocked out by Atlanta. Dr Said. My Lanta they get knocked out by Atlanta if they get knocked out by the cubs. Cubs by the way having a nice little resurgent season. Remember last year. Didn't go for. So swimmingly for them there their ten games over right now. But at some point, you have to take advantage of this dominance I. Mean you look at a guy like Clayton kershaw going to end his career. A world series. Ring. Out He's got how many. L. Rings does he have. But do you want to have I mean it's not a King Felix situation who? Never made the playoffs about that. Mariners had that guy and they said, they threw away his career. He made a lot of money and a lot all star games and. With what thirteen losses? That's really something when you can do that. Because everybody knows that. You're the best. You're the best pitcher despite all that. But it's just a matter of capitalizing on on opportunities and with sixteen teams in this is this'll be one of the craziest playoffs ever plus there's no wild card game as well. Game series. And that's what Oakland is looking at right now in that first round of playoffs, they will get to host all three games if necessary at the Oakland call, Sam and the same thing, other division winners are going to get to. All three games and then we're going to go to these. Usual venues. Like. How Weird would it be? Unless you're the Texas Rangers. Who as we? See Right now are in last place there even worse than the angels are game and a half worse than the angels but unless you're them, how would it be to play a world series home game in Arlington Texas? That doesn't make a lot of sense to me. But said, there's hopefully this is a one off. You know I I. Hope we get through it but hopefully, it's a one off where you could say that you know Kinda like we look at eighty one, the strike year eighty, nine, earthquake series, those those are nothing compared to this sixty game schedule. I'll major league baseball has said yesterday Rob Manfred that at this playoff format is basically here to stay. It's not been completely approved, but it's basically here to stay. We're going to have that we already knew that Universal D. H. is coming I. Don't know if we're going to have I. don't know how hard they're gonNA fight on that. They might fight on that. They might not. On that. And I don't care about that. Either way I would like to see in National League not have a D. H.. Well. On Speed Lokomotiv Plovdiv? Who won that is a real this is a Europa League qualifier. It's killing me but now they can get into the group stage so. There's nothing like watching a game when you're not even watching it because it's a black feed but the Bulgaria the coach of the Bulgarian team, he's got like these like weird shells. And I was wondering Puka shells just made it to. Bulgaria. But I digress. The teams that were disappointing. You're the angels aren't you going to go out there get a Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg and I know Strasbourg has signed but I'm just saying you need a couple of guys like that. And if you get an a ren down. As I said at the time when they picked up down if you get a guy like Ren dawn. That's fantastic. The guys one of the best on the planet. What about pitching? Isn't it somewhat big. I mean the whole reason everybody like the reds was they got stockists and Kosta Janas. Okay. Those are especially costing. Good. Players but that enough. But the whole thing about the the diamondbacks I never understood that one. And I mean pretty much everybody except Zach Gallon. All through the floor for them Zach Gallon is really good by the way. And then if you think about the Rangers, they definitely want to win next year because if they didn't, they would've traded Dylan Bundy at the trade deadline. Which I would have done. It might say, well, don't you need pitching if I'm the angels that's a guy. That I would have picked up. So I know the angels try. You could say look we're coming Angel Fan. They tried very hard for Garrett Cole Kohl's from Orange County, and then never Cole. decided to go to the Yankees because of Champagne..

A Roadtrip Through Bulgaria
"Let's talk about a road trip through Bulgaria. I'd like to welcome to the show. Tom and Patty Burkett. Who are coming to us from Ohio but come to talk to us about Bulgaria? Tom Common Patty welcome to the show. Thank you hi there. And what is your connection Bulgaria. Well I have a cousin who's in the. US Foreign Service listen. He's posted in Bulgaria currently and is married to a Bulgarian woman and we decided to celebrate our fortieth wedding anniversary that we would like to do a trip that that was a bit more exotic than we usually do and that since we had a connection there in Bulgaria and had heard on your show that Bulgaria it is a country that is more like your might have been several decades ago that it would be an interesting place to visit and we discovered that that was absolutely true. And I think that feeds into my next question which is why should someone go to Bulgaria. Well interestingly we got that question lot from all of our friends and family I have. I'm not surprised and actually also from many Bulgarians who said why. Why did you come here? I think one of the really exciting exciting things about Bulgaria. It's on the crossroads of history. The Turkish empire the Roman Empire Communism. And so it's an absolutely fascinating location. You're interested in the development of culture. I'd add two things to that. I that we started out the trip by spending a couple of three days in Munich and Budapest and Vienna and we were amazed at the difference in tourist fatigue between those cities and our visit in Bulgaria and Bulgaria. We were the interesting interesting thing that was happening to them. Rather than the other way around some people in small towns would go out of their way to call somebody up and say. Hey they're Americans here. Come look at. Oh that's hilarious. Excellent well kind of I recommend for us. We spent more than three weeks driving around the country and we prefer to avoid for the most part areas that are highly touristed and we recommend starting in Velika turnover which is the old capital of Bulgaria and driving through the country to the Black Sea coast and spending a bit of time. There are and then driving on mush more southerly route and ending up in Plovdiv and taking some day trips from Bo Velika Tore Novo and plugged it. Okay excellent well. Let's start that immortal. You started in. You flew into Sophia and we did about. He has a good story about arriving there. And and the surly alphabet renew knew ahead of time that we might not find people who could speak English. So you're prepared for that and we knew of course that the CYRILLIC alphabet was different and we had done a little. Oh studying before we went pretty hard to get it in your brain so we got there pretty fatigued after flying. Think we had to take two flights to get there anyways as we got in. We had to rent a car. We're getting to our AIRBNB about dusk. And all of a sudden it hit us as we were trying to park our car and we could not read anything on any street signs except every one of them had a tow truck on the bottom so we finally sort award of figured out that thinks said things like well nineteen hundred eight. Am sounds like maybe you can park your overnight and so we punt with some of that and that we did have to say had a moment where we between our fatigue and trying to park this car in the country we were really unfamiliar with. We looked at each other and wondered if we'd bitten off more than we could chew but we actually ended up within an hour of that finding a friendly face at a restaurant and spoken Galician relation. Who helped clarify that? We had actually interpreted the sign correctly and we found US bought park. It was good to park at until later. Eight thirty the following following morning and the following morning we got down about fifteen minutes before the deadline expired to discover that someone had parked behind us and the car even in such a way that we couldn't possibly get it out so we're standing there wondering exactly what we should do about that in a woman got out of a nearby. You're by car that she was parking and pointed at the sign. As if to say you shouldn't park here after eight thirty and we were thinking that boy we would like to be able to get out of there if we could. Fortunately maybe someone was looking from a nearby window and who was not partisan and came back and moved it so he could get out. Welcome to Bulgaria exactly and this was in Sophea and we drove out so-fi later that day and we're not sad to see it in the Rear Review Mirror for at least a few days. Excellent will you start at us then in Velika turnover yes Adele. Novo is the first capital a Bulgarian. And it's a beautiful city. And there's a large fortress there that sits up on a hill and it has a sound and light light show that operates most nights of the year. I occasionally. It's not working but there's music and narration and the city is situated on several hill. Also we were on a hill that faced the castle so from the balcony of our apartment. We were able to watch the light show at night. We couldn't hear the narration but we could the music and we could watch the lights. Change of the fortress walls light up and the castle keep light up and it was very matic and an interesting to seem all in Bulgarian. Rian internal Danny's okay set off by the moon and the stars. It was romantic and fascinating and we were able to stay in a an apartment apartment. That was just along the craftsperson street there in Velika Tore Novo shops. The ones that weren't restaurants or little grocery stores were operated by artisans who were wood carvers and icon painters and potters and they all were all there practicing their craft. We could walk down the street read and visit with them and see the things that they were working on. It was really delightful. The street was over Hong with umbrellas so at night they had those lint it and it was very romantic as well. I'M GONNA guess you're talking about the some of SCA car Shia the Complex well in Velika turnover. I would say that was that was an ideal location. Because it's a very hilly city so you're able to do a lot of up and down hill walking. That was the place for her to be at your central location because we can walk to those vendors and then there are other places in the city we could drive to but we felt that that was a great location to be centered in. And were you finding out through Airbnb or through some local site. Or how does your apartment on AIRBNB. Yep We did use AIRBNB and we did USA local connections for some of the lodgings we stayed and when we were there as well but not that one that was airbnb like we found the AIRBNB. Were we had good luck with them. The the quality of them were described accurately. It was a little bit more rustic of somebody's a high end traveler. These were not that okay. It was what we were looking for. We were in somebody's home. We had our own area of the home with their own patio but was not a luxury but it put us right where we wanted to be

Hi, I'm calling in reference to a two thousand seventeen Audi q seven that are also it's a really good car, regardless of the age about maybe a year ago. I had a problem with the heater brewer. So just stop working participated Audi dealership and day diagnosed it past the blower and through my second hand my second market warranty. Aftermarket war Cheech sixty. After putting a brewery, and they said that the resistor was bad. Also, right all day. Re-submitted order to my warranty company to replace the resistor for eight hundred dollars is what they quoted me the ward, you company declined they couldn't replace it. Because the place a heater Brooks, and they felt like the dealership misdiagnosed it, and they wasn't going to pay for it. So I said, okay, I'll come out of my pocket. I trust save up eight hundred thousand to replace myself. Meanwhile, in the insurance, I decided to order a resist or off line ordered a brand new. What's the twenty three bucks? Charlie card charged me like three hundred four I decided to look all go beyond my dashboard and put it on myself in doing that I discovered that the resistor was plugged. The discovery that I've just simply plugged to resist. Works. Just. Eaten everything came on? I was utterly amazed automatically knew instantly that the dealership. Plovdiv resistor and tried to bilk me for number eight hundred dollars. Now, my question to you, Gary is do I have any legal ramifications that I can pursue from that? Is there anything to do? Irreverence to them doing that to me or attempting to do that to me, or is it just something? I just gotta chalk up as experience. Well, you can't prove it. That's the problem. If you were you could zoom it small-claims. But now you're gonna it's gonna be a he said, she said, you say they unplugged it they say, they didn't unplug it. They're going to say that you on plugged it. Or the you accidentally unplugged or something? I mean, it's not worth your time. The lesson here is don't go back there. Don't do business with day. I if I am to two thousand seven model anything I would never go to a dealership how would find it a good garage and use them and save a whole lot of money because the difference in the labor rates is huge. I hear that leadership. I hate to thought that analogy dealership might do that. But, you know, hey, car dealers are just like every other profession out there. Police officers doctors whatever there's good and bad in every profession you found a bad one. So don't go back there. I wouldn't pursue it lessons learned. Just don't go back. It's it's it's kinda that simple. You know, what they call the doctors the doctors that finishes last in his class, doctor, Dr that's right? And let's go to Houston and talk to Steve Steve, welcome. Hey, Jerry, I gone on behalf of my brother. And I listen to you every week. It's always informative and entertaining thinking when I'm not in the in the market, but I got a text yesterday. And he's he's gonna be in the market in about forty five days. And he was looking at a Nissan, and he goes, you know, anything about him.

It's been couple years. It's a seats. The seats were designed by NASA believe it or not and boy, they are really comfortable, especially if you've got back problems is he looking at you going to be looking at a new one or two going back a few years. No. He's gonna to buy new ones. Okay. I don't know of anything or suggested I made was you might want to see if there might be a certified us when when you get ready. Yeah. The only problem with that is the SUV used SUV market is so hot right now. With my connections at. When you look at new at the car pro show price versus CPO, sometimes there's not much difference because of how high the used SUV market is right now. I've watched them auction prices this week. And I gotta tell you boils any kind of SUV is is bringing a lot of money. I would also say look at having look at the explore. It's been a great vehicle.

In Italy does Mattera another ancient city, but a place of such extreme poverty that the Italian authorities actually removed its inhabitants after the second World War. And now the both opened a year long series of events as European capitals of culture. So what can they offer visitors and perhaps more to the point won't benefits will be in capital of culture, bring to the people who live in the places while I'm delighted to say that author and cultural commentator PTO is indeed here in studio on you fan of capitals of culture pater.
