Fresh update on "plymouth" discussed on Native Opinion Podcast an American Indian Perspective
"Particular incident is when this country declared its second religious day of Thanksgiving. This is what we're celebrating folks. 'cause we need all of you who are here to get this story out to the people. I can only visit so many schools in this time that I am here on this earth. And I can only visit those who are welcome to hearing the truth and invite me to do so. I encourage all of you to do the same. I look out and I see you in this crowd. I see some people that I've been at their schools and they're here now standing in solid area. I really appreciate this. It means they're listening. Somebody's listening and they don't appreciate what's going on. This symbol right here, we're going to march all the way around and we're going to make one stop at the church. Where king Philip's head sat on a pole until it rotted for over 20 some odd years. For those of you who do not know who king Philip was, he was the man who started the most patriotic uprising this country will ever see. When it's native people stood against these forces and this manner of warfare during king Philip's war, when king Philip abducted Mary rawlinson, she reported in her own writings, she was treated with far greater respect by this savage than she was by her own people. Our women were topless, there was no rape. We did not need abortions. The word, when Thomas says, is what we call our women. It does not mean woman. It means she who makes all decisions. We had a high respect for our women. That was something pilgrims never understood and still does not translate into America today. Where buildings square buildings that cost us so much to heat to build to cool. Because we're sheltering ourselves from what's going on in the natural world. I have never seen a bird build a square bird's nest. That is the most absurd thing in Americans still repeat this European nonsense. When are we going to come up and show the rest of the world? What should have always been there when we first tried to get our teachings across in the 1600s? Listen to us. We're not saying we're better. We're just saying this works in nature. King Philip is the son of massas soya. NASA soya comes running to these people's aids, just a generation before. And that's when they supposedly had their first Thanksgiving. Well, their third day of Thanksgiving was declared when they brought his son's head in on a pole and left it to rot for 20 odd years, so I'm gonna walk this around Plymouth right now. And I'm gonna remind folks of what we're celebrating here today. And I encourage all of you to get out to a library, get out to a school, even if it's your own, it's better be your own kids school. Because this is what they're teaching your kids. I excuse my kids from school whenever they're being asked to dress up as pilgrims in Indians. There's so many injustices still going on every day here, folks..
Native Americans mourn on Thanksgiving: 'No reason to celebrate'
"While many American families celebrated thanksgiving yesterday a day of mourning was observed by some native Americans on the historic landmark that overlooks Plymouth rock members of native American tribes from around New England to gather to mourn citing centuries of racism and mistreatment that indigenous people around the world have suffered waters indigenous people would be celebrated by a day of thanksgiving and yet the history books called off the savages kisha James of the Quinault Wampanoag tribe says the stories we all learned in school about the first thanksgiving are mostly lies someone to knock ancestors did welcome the pilgrims and save them from starvation and

"And replace him with one of our leaders, but I wouldn't stop there. If the mason statue is to be on display at all, it should be next to the statues of one pequot man, one peak wat woman and one pequot child. Who would represent our ancestors from one of the villages that mason himself ordered burned. And paint his hands red. And there should be educational panels with narratives written by current day pequot hands. That, to me, would be a start to balance the deeply incomplete Connecticut history here currently being portrayed. Now, lastly, being that this is Native American heritage month. As well as the upcoming American holiday called Thanksgiving, I feel that it's important to convey the truth about that holiday. What I will share is not, but I consider an alternative perspective. That's a phrase again used by many historians of the ways to minimize the full truth about America's history. A truth not taught properly in any public American school. It involves my ancestors as well as ancestors for many tribes here in the northeast. Some of what you're about to hear will also be difficult, I would say. And therefore, I also feel a responsibility to provide this warning to you guys, okay. If you feel the need, you can always broadcast our stream if you're listening live right now. Or if you get the podcast, just skipping ahead about 7 and a half minutes. Okay. And I'll play this now after a countdown. I'll do this in 5. Four, three, two, and one. All right, thanks, guys. And now, some truth. The second Thanksgiving. Mystic massacre is what we call it. The pequot war. It goes by many names. It happened in 1637. Down in Connecticut. Owners of the now established foxwoods, the pequot people were burned alive in the middle of their sleep at night in 1637. Mass bay colony, Plymouth colony, province plantation, mystic seaport, all English colonies banded together to burn women and children.
The Incredible True Story of Squanto
"In 1608 before any ships before any people settled in what's now Massachusetts, I never knew this, because we all know that the Mayflower landed there in 1620. Chris, you knew that? I did at one point in my life. Right. So 1620 is when the pilgrims land at Plymouth. Sorry. But I always assumed growing up that that's the first time that anybody came to like what's Massachusetts. But I found out that's not the case. And the story of squanto, which I'm going to tell right now, which just wait, wait till you hear this. It starts in 1608, and it turns out that English trading ships would travel from Europe from England to Iceland, Greenland make their way down Nova Scotia all the way down and they would trade with the natives. Now I never knew that. So the natives were familiar with English sailors coming and trading and giving them knives and pots and pans and they would give them pelts and whatever. And they would trade. I never knew this. Well, in 1608, a group, a group, a ship led by a captain hunt lands or drops anchor off of what is today Plymouth Massachusetts. And the braves come down to the shore to trade with them as they've done before. Well, just so happens that this captain hunt was a bad man, and instead of trading with the braves, they whack them over the head, put them in the long boat, take them out to the ship, throw them in the hold, sail to malaga, Spain and sell them into slavery. This is 1608, one of the braves was a 12 year old. Boy named tisquantum. Now this is true story. This is all documented. I've done the research. Others have done the research. It's true. So he has bought by some kindly friars, who seemed to treat him well. Teach him the Christian religion, and this is the part that we'll never know how this happened. But they arrange for him to be freed and to travel to London. Now imagine from malaga Spain to London. So this is an Indian from what is today Massachusetts, a Native American, a patuxent, makes its way to London with the idea, and this is where it's crazy of getting back across the Atlantic to go back home. I know. It's like being on the moon and saying, so when's the next ship going back? There's no next ship going back. What are you talking about? But I guess the idea was not insane. He worked in London from what is it around 1612, 1613 for four or 5 years with a family called slany. This is all documented. This Indian named squanto to squantum learns the English language. He's there when he's there when Queen Elizabeth is on the throne, we're talking Shakespeare is writing his play. So he's in London. This Massachusetts Indian, and this is years before the pilgrims ever get to Plymouth rock, crazy, right? In 1618, I believe 1619, a ship is found. For him to go back to his home. And he's going to translate obviously because he knows the language. He's going to be on the ship working with these English as they're stopping, you know, and he's going to be doing the translating and so on and so forth. So somehow he gets passage on a ship. The ship ends up having to spend the winter in I can't remember if it was Iceland or Greenland. It's in my book. Where does it say? Newfoundland now, hold on a second. Anyway, the point is that it took them quite a while to get there, right? So they basically, no, it was Newfoundland. Sorry. They spend the winter in Newfoundland. And then the next spring, this is like 1619, they bring him to what's now the coast of Massachusetts drop him off. Thank you very much. Goodbye. This sounds crazy, right? This is document. This is a true story. So a year plus before the pilgrims land. This Indian has made the journey from Plymouth to Spain to London, spans 5 years London, learns the English language, learns the ways the English, and then ends up back where he started. He finds his way on foot to the village, which is right where Plymouth is today, right? Village where his Indian, where his family is, they have all been wiped out. In ten years, he's dreamed about getting home, he's dreamed about returning. He's dreamed for ten years. He's thought in his mind of doing the impossible to get all the way back

Kirk Cameron Tells Us About the American Campfire Revival
"Me bought some talking to my friend Kirk Cameron, Kirk. We love you. You just cheer me up seeing you. You were just bringing something up. I had wanted to be in Plymouth for this past weekend. I wasn't able to do it. But tell us about this. This is so it's just so wonderful. Anybody who hasn't visited that monument, oh my goodness, go ahead. So this is a monument that was the cornerstone was laid in the people of Massachusetts and it was finished in 1889 and president Abraham Lincoln was one of the original contributors to the building of this monument, and it was made to be the monument that told us everything that we needed to know about what made this the Pinnacle nation of the world, the Beacon of freedom and justice for all. And it's what we need to get back to if we want to maintain it. It's called the national monument to the forefathers and this last weekend was the very first of 7 nights of revival under the stars that I'm hosting. It's called the American campfire revival. And it really is sort of springboarded out of that first hundred days during the new administration's run of executive orders. And I thought rather than us just being on the defense, why don't we download the executive orders from heaven, the mandates from above and start running those plays and see what happens. And I made a campfire in my backyard for a hundred nights in a row. It's called the American campfire revival. There it is. Oh my gosh. There are sweatshirts. I love this. And so people would gather online in my backyard around a campfire and we would begin learning the history of our America. Not the 1619 version, but the actual true untold story of our forefathers who covenanted with their creator and applied his word to subdue tyranny and build institutions that would create

That's h. o. ot su it dot com slash. Thirty free for free thirty day. Trial and fifty percent off your first year at the moment the plymouth cases not being treated as terrorism although it may be reclassified according to police is important that we classify this terrorism. No i think that could be grounds for it. An obviously you know. That is a very specific. Uk definition of terrorism which stipulates that. It must be for the purpose of advancing a political racial or religious ideological. 'cause i don't see why an individual cases if it's proven that that raise that ideological motivation behind it. If it's proven that the time that was spent in a subculture has radicalized individual sir express a violent misogynistic rage against women and then they go into knock that fun fantasy that to me would meet the definition of terrorism so it's all really about establishing motivation and purpose. Another issue now and scrutiny and the plymouth cases the the killer had his gun license restored after attending an anger management decision which is now under investigation by the independent office for police conduct and this week in response to this ministers have said that going forward applicants for admission to own firearms will have their social media checked. Do you have a sense. That release and security services are are doing enough to try to root out people online. Who might guns commit these kinds of crimes or have these sort of extreme views. It's difficult it can be very easy to immediately blame tech companies in the police for missing things which is not say. We shouldn't scrutinize what they do. In relation to particular crimes and particularly before something has happened but if the threshold of violence isn't seen and if it's not expressed before hand it can be often very very difficult to fly. But i think questions. Do you need to be all about why. Davidson's license was removed. Which would indicate that wasn't issue there and was an and the management attended and then why it was given back so perhaps this is an example. Where had his social media been scrutinized a bit further and the fact that you know we know that lie is cheap for example. He had an interest in gun culture. Perhaps there would be grounds for saying. Is this someone should own a gun. But hindsight is a wonderful thing and piecing the picture off to. It's very easy to say well. Of course he shouldn't have had a gun but beforehand is difficult for a lot of what we've talked about in this episode. Might feel like new information for many people and the in some even is still fairly unknown to most. But it's clearly growing as he explained needs to be better understood but is this. What in cell really. Something we haven't seen before. Is it just a recent term for problems in attitudes that have been around for hundreds of years. Yeah i mean it's a great question is something i think about a law. I mean the simple fact of someone being virgin being straight. But that i mean that argument is probably something that's timeless across society. So is it that in cells have always existed for the online world. Essentially giving them a place to congregate. But i think we can't overlook the fact that the internet has created something quite specific because without the internet. Yes people may have been virgins and they may have been frustrated but they wouldn't have had a place to shatter grievances and create this kind of language in this social hierarchy that that many of them believe invo fundamentally and i think that's what's different now it's really the fact that we have online subcultures the commence and potentially push some into a bit more of an extremist mindset whereas of course he may have had men and women who were lonely and virgins who aside about that but they didn't necessarily have a tangible community in which to congregate florence.

"Researching internet's coaches at the international center for the study of radicalization at king's college london. When you heard about the plymouth shootings and dita's about the government began to emerge. Where did you start looking online for more information so we oversee heard the news when everyone else said late on thursday night and initially we know the police were cooling a domestic instant which they they still are but quite quickly then emerge that. I'm this shoots are hard. Some overlap with various kind of online subcultures so specifically. He had a youtube channel where he posted several videos in the weeks. And months leading the shooting where much of the language that he was using the discourse he really seems to be interested in these communities and potentially embedded in them and from that we managed to establish his read it profile his instagram accounts and his facebook all of which started to paint a bigger picture of someone that was deeply misogynistic and entrusted in these kind of online mail. Subcultures we should say that police are still investigating the sheeting and it is too early to say his motivations were but when you look at the kind of. He was sharing online the kind of videos he was making did he say reminds you of other content that you look in your work. Yeah what we saw with davidson and as you say. We still don't know the motivation. But but the the kind of things he was saying really paint a picture of someone with a deep amount of grievances against the world overlap with the insult subculture. And it was this notion that you know he was almost twenty three. He was still a virgin. He'd been trying to improve himself. You know videos of him kind of work now saying that you know he thought his life would change and it hadn't really paints a picture of someone that was quite disillusioned with the world's and really landing that blame on women and really kind of using quite a humanizing language for for for women as a whole in the you know it's really there for being picky. That's why someone like him. We'll never be able to find relationship. It was kind of a very kind of a grievance filled picture that again i would say dazs overlap with some of these online mail coaches. That am i study. I mean interest came back a little bit. What do we mean when we say insult and went to that term. I stopped being used so insult. Breakdown stands for invalid. She celebrate and of course the idea of someone being involuntary celebrate will have existed for th- rather ultimately i actually became a term used running back about twenty years ago. They started as a forum. Ironically by by a women actually acquitted women. He started this forum. cooed alana's involuntary celebrate projects. It was a friendly place to talk about being lonely and wanting human connection and wondering what it is that we were struggling with it was initially really a much more sympathetic space for people who were virgins to kind of come together to talk about their anxieties of being left behind from that pig group. You know personal issues and not having enough friends and family issues and all that stuff could would all be tied into someone's loneliness and disconnection is much more akin to a self help community is that it was anything that was misogynistic and so i'm still interested in working on that issue with people but we can't call it. Involuntary celibacy anymore because the you know the angry violent in-cell people of taken that over. Unfortunately and how has the in cell identity evolved over time. He said sort of reached in this idea of being celebrate but not by choice. How is it. Is it going beyond. So even within the in south subculture their variations of how they would really define themselves on the one hand you may have people that define themselves as insult but actually they potentially see a way out and that comes the idea of being able to let betty yourself improve yourself. It's still deeply misogynistic often and still maybe describes women in dehumanizing way but it but it potentially sees an end point where you may be able to kind of get out of your circumstance on the other hand. We see some insults within community that a much. More nihilistic about that outcomes and they would talk about themselves as being black pills and essentially that means this kind of acceptance that you know the system's really gone too far to change. There's nothing that can be done by these insults to raise their status. They believe that they're determines we're live at the bottom of this sort of genetic hierarchy based on looks nothing that they can do achieve that change and some have argued that if someone is block pills and they bind that ideology they're potentially more likely to engage in in a more violent worldview whether that's talking in a violent way online by the bats expressing intent enroll life but actually harming themselves as wild. And you mentioned the. Tim blunt clayton. What does not mean. The red pill is probably the most well known. And that's this trope borrowed from the film. The matrix by that was that famous scene of neo being offered the red pill or the blue pill and the red pill means you'll being awoken societies. It really is and he takes the red pill he wakes up in the world and he sees the world as it is so it's basically a metaphor for into the world is actually is so more generally in in men's rights communities in the madness fear the red pill is awakening yourself to a life feminist delusion and saying you know men are actually victims on the black pill is this insult iteration of it. So it's not simply the men have lost power but it saying you know there is nothing that can be done about this. The system is what it is. I look at the idea of kind of power in this kind of shifting of power so i guess broader male activists communities. Does this idea that you know this sort of feminist takeover by the world means that men and now on the bottom they see themselves as losing power in the real world. And that's why there's this big feminist backlash and insult and is is really the kind of the bitter end of that so it's not simply just about men's place in the world but really just what they feel is being denied to them. Which is this basic biological riot of sex since block pilling and another time. I've seen used is charleston. Stacy's what does that mean. Yes so. I'm when insult communities. Talk about charleston. Stacy's it's really this notion of the kind of idealized body over man and a woman who they see the top and the child being. The man is kind of very muscular looking man. That's kind of famous. Chad verse is virgin. Meam or chad verse is stacey. Meanwhile you have the kind of to your body side by side. And yet as i say. The charges is very muscular. Looking white man and the stacey is a very voluptuous blonde women with big big breasts on kind of these these very look space. Stereotypes really the ridi of show themselves install seeing themselves as totally inferior the ideal body type and some of that crosses over as well in surveys as well they often refer to the idea of just be white. Which again is this idea that you know. The white man is also the kind of idealized way to look and so while sometimes people often say insult the fall rights in their white supremacist. I would say there are influences of white supremacist ideology. But actually we see really diverse. Profiles of insoles. It's not just white men. Although it's very diverse have you found that there is a common insul- pro folic at a typical kind of person who might be predisposed to follow these ideas. I mean it seems to be relatively young men. it became. I think really started being bigger in north america but of course we do know that there are more more kind of users in other parts of the world.

America Has a Drinking Problem
"Okay so when exactly did american start drinking. Was it at the start of america. Yeah literally so the reason sort of unbelievably or one of the reasons. I should say that. The mayflower landed at plymouth. Rock is because the ship was running low on beer people back then drink beer instead of water or they preferred it to water. Same and the sailors freaked out. And they thought that at the rate that they and pilgrims. We're drinking the beer. They won't have enough beer to get them back to england's so rather than sail on to the mouth of the hudson which had been the plan they pull the shore and kick the pilgrims off and that is why the pilgrims landed at plymouth rock. Of course the truth may have been a little more complicated than what was indicated in their diaries as they complained bitterly that winter about the beer and having been kicked off there were other things going on it was december. The weather was bad. The food was running low but the beer was a big part of the picture. People are dying in there. Like where's the booze yeah right. So william bradford who would go on to be the governor of the plymouth colony for thirty years that winter in his diary couldn't stop talking about the beer dearest diary. It has been another long and thirsty. Day here at the plymouth colony. How i long for the cool sweet feeling of a droplet of beer rolling down my throat part. That's not real. Almost half of the pilgrims were going to die that winter and the is what he was worried about now to be fair people back then. Were very leery of water. There had been problems with water. Purity in england and they thought that beer was safer nonetheless. They really enjoyed their liquor
Why Do Americans Celebrate the Fourth of July with Fireworks?
"Does this sound familiar at all. Without a visual clue it might be a little hard to figure out. But that's the sound of fireworks. Many of you are curious about how these celebratory explosions work. And why we use them. Historians and archaeologists think fireworks started in china. Maybe as early as twenty two hundred years ago and they've been used in europe and other parts of the world for at least eight hundred years in the united states where our show is based they've become a big tradition on the fourth of july. So hi my name is nicholas in six years old. And i live in plymouth michigan and i want to know why people do fireworks on the fourth of july. Thank you bye while nicholas. Americans have been celebrating. July fourth fireworks since seventeen. Seventy seven the first anniversary of the signing of the declaration of independence. John adams was one of the people who signed that document in seventeen. Seventy six a year earlier declaring their wish for the american colonies to become independent from england. Afterwards adams wrote to his wife that he wanted that day to be celebrated with lots of parades shows bonfires bells illuminations. Adams was a well known person. In the early days of the united states he later became the first vice president and the second president so his wish would have been shared with others as well and so on the one year anniversary of the signing. The city of philadelphia had a big celebration with thirteen fireworks. One for each of the original thirteen colonies. Now john adams didn't come up with this idea entirely on his own. English royalty had been using fireworks for national celebrations since at least the thirteenth century. Which went fireworks came to europe. They were widely in use by the fifteenth century. That's about six hundred years ago. But they were hard to find in the early days of the united states so celebrations back then often included guns and cannons more than actual fireworks.

The Years (plural) Without A Christmas
"Of christmas it is indulgence. Christmas has long been time to break out the good booze and gorge yourself on sweet desserts made with expensive imported spices. To say nothing of the gift giving you know who didn't like all of those things oliver cromwell when he and his puritan forces took over england in sixteen forty five. They vowed to do away with decadence and went full. Alan rickman sheriff of nottingham and cancelled. Christmas shops were ordered to stay open on december. Twenty fifth and soldiers patrolled the streets with orders to seize any and all food. They found being prepared for a feast. It would take no less than restoring a king to the throne in this case. Charles the second to get christmas back. Puritans weren't exclusive to their native england and a bunch of them thought the spoiled beauty of the new world could really use some severe self-denial the puritans we refer to as pilgrims and about whom many myths were dispelled in. Our recent thanksgiving episode were even more orthodox in their puritanism than cromwell bonus fact that parallels the split between the amish and the mennonites. The amish broke off because the mennonites weren't strict enough since the puritans were among the first europeans to establish themselves in what would become america celebrating. Christmas was not a thing. It wasn't simply that they didn't celebrate it themselves. They didn't want anyone to celebrate the holiday. They had dubbed fools tied as an england shops and schools were expected to be open though. Interestingly churches were ordered to be closed on christmas one of the two days a year when even the laziest christian can be bothered to turn up. It was more than the frivolity and gluttony that they minded they viewed it as not properly christian. Puritans followed the bible very strictly. If something wasn't in the bible like taking any day for rest other than a sunday it might as well have come straight from the devil that would include the idea of resting on the day that jesus was born but since the bible also doesn't specify what day that is no big loss s historian stephen this inbound explains puritans were fond of saying that if god had intended for the anniversary of the city to be observed he would surely have given some indication as to when that anniversary occurred. The date of december twenty fifth wasn't officially the mass of christ until the fourth century. When pope julius the first subsumed the roman festival of saturnalia into a christian celebration. Which gave us some of our most enduring traditions like holly in candles. Puritans were also not keen on the papacy so they didn't care if it was official for twenty two years from sixteen fifty nine to sixteen eighty one. The celebration of christmas was actually outlawed. In the massachusetts bay colony the law went into effect one year after the brits had gotten their christmas restored by well the restoration the laws stated that in order to prevent disorders to the great dishonour of god and offensive others. Anyone found celebrating the holiday. Either by forbearing of labor feasting or any other way would be find a hefty five shillings on one christmas day. Plymouth governor william bradford noticed some people playing an old equivalent of baseball and ordered them all to get back to work. Now would be an appropriate time. If i make an aside and i may because it's my show to remind people that religious freedom is when you say that's against my religion. I can't do it but religious freedom does not mean that's against my religion. You can't do it. Even after the ban on christmas was repealed in sixteen. Eighty one staunch puritans still fought against christmas celebrations for decades in sixteen eighty six. The newly appointed governor of the dominion of new england closed shops on christmas day and sponsored a holiday service. This idea was unpopular enough with enough people. That soldiers had to accompany the governor to church. Those sorts of protests of christmas would continue but their focus would shift from celebrating at all to the way in which it was celebrated and what a way it was. We aren't talking about a family sing. Song and three helpings of pie or even old timey whistling colonial celebrations of christmas looked more like mardi gras mashed with halloween. If it took place during spring break drunken revellers take to the streets wearing scary masks or dressed like animals singing boisterously and demanding food drink and money under threat of violence ad in the ancient pagan roots of those practices. And we see that. The puritans had quite a lot to get their noses out of joint about boston minister. Cotton mather preached to his congregation more than thirty years. After the law's repeal the feast of christ's nativity is spent in reveling dicing carding masking. And in all licentious liberty by mad mirth by long eating by hard-drinking i- lewd gaming await. Those are meant to be bad things. After the american revolution or the kerfuffle of ungrateful colonials as the british call at surreal thing. You don't have to google it. Just trust me. English customs fell out of favor and since celebrating. Christmas had come over from england. It began to peter out to. It wasn't even declared a federal holiday until after the civil war in eighteen seventy. It was around that time that americans. Reinvented christmas and it changed from a raucous pagan carnival. Holiday into a family centered. Day of nostalgia nostalgia used to be considered a mental illness by the way. But that's a story for another day. So why the shift. The early nineteenth century was a period of class conflict high employment and of rioting by the lower classes that tended to come to a head around christmastime one such christmas riot in eighteen twenty eight moved the newark city council to institute. The city's first police force in response. This motivated certain members of the upper class to change the way. People viewed christmas literary figures like washington irving the man who helped co defy the until recently launched view of christopher columbus in eighteen nineteen. Urban wrote the sketch book of geoffrey crayon gent a series of stories about the celebration of christmas in an english manor house wherein the rich person invites pour into his home and the two classes of people get along swimmingly and celebrate with quote ancient customs. As nice as that is it's worth noting that the details of the books revelry don't parallel any celebration. We know of irving actually attending and seems to have been completely imagined. It's the season of giving and you

"plymouth" Discussed on The Spunky and Snarky Show
"Today. We're looking back at an episode of bewitched called. Snap thanksgiving to remember. It's from season. Four episode twelve bewitched is about a witch samantha who marries a mortal man. Darren tries to balance between being a housewife without using her powers and her family. Who disapproved for mixed marriage and often interfere. In the couple's lives bewitched ran for eight seasons on abc from nineteen sixty four to nineteen seventy-two. So this episode opens up an samantha. Meager is in the caption preparing thanksgiving. Dinner she is putting the turkey in the oven. When all of a sudden there is a huge crash is she's like what before so she runs in the living room and sees her aunt clara covered in soot and cameras. Apparently she pulls a santa and came down the chimney so inclined switch but she kinda like bumble things up. She's old so her powers are used. She's a little senile and bubbly. Like i don't know how. I got here but i guess i'm gonna stay for thanksgiving. Dinner is so samantha. Calls darren to tell him that aunt clarice here and he's like off right because basically he hates samantha's which family because they're always getting into shenanigans and he just wants to like live a normal life but he picked the wrong partner for that so they're gonna have dinner and aunt clara starts to tell samantha darren's child tabitha about the first thanksgiving and how wonderful it was and they're all like you were at the first thanksgiving and she's like yeah. It was great. I met all these people wish i could go to plymouth and meet all my old friends. And he's like oh we'll book your weight you can go right now. She's like this. Go with my power. So she does a little magic's parallel turkey pulled down. Send me back to limit town. Of course it doesn't work that way you will get your plane. It's gonna be okay. She's like no no. Let me try again. Meanwhile better like nosy neighbor gladys covid knocks on the door and sneaks in an aunt. Clara's lay reciting her spell a wings felt in turkey pool down. Take his back to plymouth town in a booth. They appear in plymouth except aunt clara ends up bringing the whole family and gladys kravitz. Along with her. Darren is not happy about the situation. He says will take a plane home as he walks outside. He realizes that they're not twentieth century. Plymouth there in seventeen saturate. Plymouth has white men dressed as native americans walk. By this is true last kravitz. Passes out 'cause she's just like overwhelmed. With the whole situation ratifies. A kind of exciting darren reminder that they burned witches then and he wants samantha to get them out of there asap but she explains that aunt clara zap them there. And she's the only one can zapped the back samantha. Waves are arms. Gives them all pilgrim close so they can fit in darren's long hair so it is very sixties to kind of funny a. Yeah he looks like he's green and he's a true. It's like totally likes prince valium but like fall like brown leg if that straight light page-boy lay cut. Yes there's a knock at the door and we need john alden. Who invites them to attend. Their thanksgiving feasts after samantha explains evade just derived from out of town. Darren has a hard time remembering to use the correct speech of time like the shakespearian die and whenever so the family goes to sit at the table. But the pilgrim the head of the table finneas says that the women can't sit with them. It should be attending to cooking. Darren again forgetting what time period. He's in tells him not to speak to his wife in that tone of voice and then he corrects himself. Speak not to my wife. Justly samantha tells darren she'll be okay heads off to wear. They're doing the cooking. Darren sits at the table and chats with the other men also. I find it kind of areas. That there ain't no mater americans at this feast. That supposed to thanksgiving is all out till drums is weird. 'cause you see them in the beginning just walking by. I don't know go for historical accuracy here but it's a witch show. So what do you expect anyway. So severe clara are also being and samantha. Still like double double toil and trouble samantha's leg. This is no time for if it felt appropriate. Because you have like a call to a back at the table the pilgrims talking about how they love to burn witches. Darren gets a little nervous. Because of samantha dare visits samantha. Gloves in samantha acids start fire in durham desert but he lights a mash and finneas seizes and shouts that he's a witch Says her points to samantha. But then he says no how. The yeah at accuses durham. Yeah next thing you know during the on trial and they're gonna try to burn at the stake if they convict him of being a witch. The trial begins and finneas brings about all this Fees like i. He's talked to me in the speech. Said hi there. How you doing and bewitched him to trip and then he was talking about. How patient burn the witches and then he saw like the match. Darren is leg. It's just chemicals on would lake. I can do it right now until he does it. They're all like oh. What is this witchcraft. To nieces like wall. Why should i be able to do it. Then they're like you already lit. It's not gonna light again. And so they're convinced that he's a witch and he wants to defend himself but he doesn't know what to do. If i don't say i'm guilty of being a witch him to be burnt out the steak and if i do gonna be burned at the stake. He's on a lose. Lose situation samantha. Stands up to defend darren the judges allow it and samantha gives an impassioned speech. He says if you're clumsy. It's not your fault cry. Which if you're forgetful don't blame yourself cry which whatever your failings. It's not your fault you can place the blame on someone else. How do you tell who is a which if they speak differ from you assign a witchery. Does he showed different mannerisms which we of course what if you look different or she whose name had a different sound view. Zaman your neighbors closely. You will find many differences so that no one is safe from the charge of witchery she asked. Is that what you see in this new world. She thinks not the hope of this. World lies in the acceptance of all differences in the recognition of our common in the courtroom claps in aunt. Clara says here here finneas than says. But one of the stick samantha tells distracted and she uses her magic sirri. Light the match miles standish. The judge says that since you lit the match she must confess to being a witch. Or withdrawal. The charges against darren and clara recalls the incantation justice finneas withdraws the charges and darren is declared innocent wing of fire. I flame take us back to whence we came in with a purple plume of smoke. They're all zapped back to the twentieth. Century mrs kravitz screams. Runs home sure that she finally has approved. She needs to tell her husband. Avenue that samantha is a witch but samantha quickly puts everyone back in their modern day clothes and she is confused again so the family finally sits down to their thanksgiving. Dinner darren tells samantha that everything's delicious. Enact clara mentions plymouth again. Darren asked her change the subject because he doesn't want to talk about it in clear that says that christmas is coming soon in suggests the trip to take tablets. Meet the real santa claus. She says of the north pole. Isn't that far away. Darren looks mature. Then that's the end of that. When does therein not with Yeah he's got resting.
"Most without equal for this recipe you will need one each skylark thrush quayle ortolan lapping. Golden plover partridge woodcock. -til guinea hen guinea fowl. Wild duck red pheasant. Wild goose boostered and fake pecker pluck and got the birds then stuff the smallest bird into the next smallest birds cavity and so on until you have one neutron star of bird meet paraphrased from seventeenth century cookbook and you thought her duck in was a new thing. My name's moxy. And this is your brain on facts. Two days after this episode drops. It is thanksgiving in the united states and the supporters at patriot. Dot com slash. Your brain on facts voted to go. Turkey talk today. So let's go through the myths and misconceptions by working our way through a painting an odd choice as this is an audio only medium. Certainly luckily we don't have to pick just one painting. Most paintings depicting the first thanksgiving in giant air quotes of sixteen twenty. One contain the same things about of puritan settlers dressed in austere black clothing. With bright metal buckles gathered around a table laden with food. Maybe the family patriarch is offering a prayer and a small group of native americans can be seen in the background. Maybe one or two in the foreground. If i were to show you jennie. Augusta browns combs. The first thanksgiving or the first thanksgiving by louise jerome farris painted within a year of each other in the early twentieth century. Incidentally you'd say oh. Yeah that was in my history book which year all of them probably. That's how we've been taught to think of historical thanksgiving's but we're not school kids anymore. So it's time to update that image paintings of the first thanksgiving referred to that feast in sixteen twenty one in plymouth massachusetts. What we actually know about the feast. Concretely is very limited. It mostly comes from a single letter. Written by a communist named edward winslow two hundred and twenty years later in eighteen forty one. His letter was published in chronicles. Of the pilgrim fathers by boston writer and publisher alexander young and it was young. Who called the gathering. The first thanksgiving even though the word thanksgiving doesn't appear anywhere in winslow's letter that feast wouldn't have been thanksgiving to the pilgrims. Puritans did observe thanksgiving days after fortunate events like a good harvest. The were religious observances. People spent the day in church often in silent prayer and they fasted rather than feasted. It's almost the polar opposite of the way we celebrate thanksgiving today. So that day wasn't thanksgiving and it wasn't even the first for a few reasons for starters. It didn't happen a second time. Let alone annually. So it can hardly be said to be the first of anything it would take more than two hundred years for an autumn. Feast referred to as thanksgiving too widely proliferate second. It wasn't the first meal shared by europeans and native americans in the new world. A reasonable drive from my home here in. Virginia is the berkeley plantation where a thanksgiving feast was held this one by the europeans alone. Three dozen settlers arrived in the chesapeake bay in sixteen nineteen on a ship. Captain by a man who had survived the winter of sixteen o nine in the jamestown colony a winter referred to as the starving time after a rough two and a half months at sea and another week on inland waterways. They finally arrived at berkeley hundred later called berkeley plantation on december fourth. They disembarked assembled a meal. From what shifts rations. They still had ham and wasters probably and said prayers of thanksgiving. It was declared that their arrival must be yearly and perpetually kept holy as a day of thanksgiving to almighty god end so it was for two whole years in march of sixteen twenty two. The poyton having noticed that the settlers weren't leaving and in fact were expanding their territory and kept trying to convert and civilize them attacked berkeley and other settlements killing over three hundred fair playboys if you ask historians in maine they'll tell you the first. Such meal happened not in sixteen twenty one in massachusetts but in sixteen. O seven in papa main. The popham colony barely lasted a year. Thanks to a fire in their storehouse during the particularly harsh winter and miscalculations like staying in a four right on the shore rather than moving inland where the forest could provide a windbreak. They arrived in the
We Gather Together - Creating an American Thanksgiving with Denise Kiernan
"So denise. I want to start by asking you to cover the early history of thanksgiving were all taught. From a very early age that the pilgrims landed in plymouth and shared a feast with the native americans living in the area. How close is that accurate. What's so interesting about thanksgiving as we celebrated versus thanksgiving as it has been on this planet for much longer. I'm always fascinated about how traditions and practices evolved the concept of gratitude and giving thanks has been around basically as long as humans have walked the earth. The word thanksgiving and even the practice of thanksgiving has been around for centuries before even conception of the united states of america. Yes the pilgrim's did land at plymouth. Yes the pilgrim's did have a meal with the woman. Og indians was. That proclaimed a thanksgiving now. When thanksgiving became a federal holiday in the united states of america was that event singled out as the reason for establishing that holiday. Now i want to be clear. I am not putting anything out there. That other people haven't said for a while and what's really interesting. I think is that every year. You'll see these. Hey here's the real. This part of thanksgiving and i think part of the reason. Is we tell these stories. We tell this. Essentially two kids in school and then later on when they get into high school or college or whatever we don't necessarily re contextualised and give them the full story so every year it's almost necessary that we keep trotting these things out and contextualisation of history is so important to really kind of look at everything that went into a particular event and thanksgiving again. Like i said you know. I am not the first person to come out. And say yeah. That's not exactly how it happened. But what i'm interested in. And what was one of the linchpins at making me want to do. The book we gather together was the ageless. Timeless concept gratitude view stevens. I'm and author here in madison wisconsin. And i'm thankful for men. Women working press in use of the people. The you don't have a great thanksgiving. There is an alternate true factual story about thanksgiving and gratitude and harvest festivals. And all of those things. And how. The actual holiday came to be in america and evolve and erica so i thought was an alternate entry and wouldn't that be fun and i'm interested. How thanksgiving celebrations changed in the seventeenth and eighteenth century. So a lot of what thanksgiving is rule out of things like harvest festivals. Which again go way. Way back thanksgiving's were often religious practices in various parts of the world. You would set aside a day sometimes for fasting and humiliation as they would say to give thanks for could be particular event. When i was working on we gather together. I came across some really interesting articles including some archives from the atoms stanley. john adams. John quincy adams. Abigail adams and john adams writes in his diary thanksgiving for the repeal of the stamp act. So like that was something. You would have a thanksgiving for declare thanksgiving for thanksgiving's for various wins in battle or days of general thanksgiving or like. I said fasting and humiliation so those sorts of advance existed outside of north america. What we now consider the continental united states they existing europe and those traditions were obviously brought over when people came over but the concept of having days set aside for saying thank. You is something that goes back a very very long time. Tell us about. Sarah josefa so sarah of a hail was so compelling to me because she was a young woman born in the early nineteenth century actually of the eighteenth century. She had no formal schooling but her parents instilled in her a deep deep love of reading and learning and she was obsessed with the written word. She married a man who shared her love of all these things. They used to have study hour together in the evenings. She lost him fairly early on in their marriage and so she was a widowed mother of five children and because of her desire to write ended up becoming one of the most influential editors in the nineteenth century. She edited to popular women's magazines. The american ladies magazine and then go. Jeez ladies magazine which was one of the most popular magazines in the nineteenth century. And just to be able to do that to me whether thing but what really moved me about her was that she had all of these things that she needed not wanted but like needed to do for herself and her children but she still found time to raise money for people who have less than she did and to bring people's attention to causes she thought worthy and her ten city was just. I mean seriously. I was interviewing her thinking good. What have i been doing with my time. You know how i feel like. I'm talking to her. You know when. I am interviewing her. I'm looking at what she wrote. I'm looking at what she was quoted as saying. I'm looking at the book she put out. I'm looking at the end. Policies that she curated

I'm really intrigued by that story. And yes I want to hear the story about how he gave up the charger. And what got you back in the classic Mo- parcel send now one in and we'll get that one shared on the podcast to as for the rest of your story. It sounds like you've been a moped guy from the beginning and not too many people can actually say that they saw Dodge Charger Daytona on the dealer showroom floor. That is awesome. I think that's really cool. And Hey about the hot rod car craft magazine's my libraries must have sucked and I just didn't realize it because none of them had car magazines so that really made me feel left out and now I'm disappointed in all my schools. None of them had any car magazines. I always brought my own and I was always weird Kim school who was obsessed with cars and read car magazines and not too many other kids were like that. I wish there was more car. People that would have been a lot funner but it was interesting to hear your story about getting the charger for four hundred dollars. Gosh you know I keep hearing these stories again and again about guys getting these awesome. Au Pairs for so cheap and it just makes me wish that I had really grown up in that area instead of the one that I did and I understand what you're saying about reading where a lot of people say. Oh they were just cars then and to me I completely agree with. There was something special about those cars and I find it really hard to believe that there were people that didn't see how special those cars were in that time but I didn't grow up then I grew up much much later and now I just get to enjoy hearing the stories. So thank you Joe for sending in your story and please don't forget to send in the story about how you had to give up the charger. But then you got back into classic Mo- Pars and you sold a seventy Khuda to get money to buy back your charter. I want to hear that story so be sure to reach back out. I feel like we got left on a cliffhanger. But that's alright. Send us the rest. Thanks Joel for sending in your story. Our next story was a voicemail that I got that caught me off guard in the beginning. But if you listen to last week's episode I talked about the cartoon King of the Hill and how the character boom Hauer had. What I thought was a mix between a sixty nine sixty eight super be and I got a response from gentleman name Hank. Now here is Hank's voicemail..

"Only available with a three forty. It's clear to me. That in Nineteen Seventy Plymouth. Really wanted to promote the KHUDA as the car. That could fill any of your needs. Maybe you didn't need a big HAMMY. Maybe you just wanted something fun and sporty three forty Khuda and if you wanted a monster you could get the four forty six barrel the Hemi car so in my opinion I think like if you look at all the options of all these cars the Khuda seems to be the car that a lot of people would look towards if they really wanted a lot of choices so I thought that was pretty interesting looking at the cars in one car that stands out to me in the Plymouth. Rapid Transit System of nineteen seventy is the sport fury GT. It's interesting to me that they had the four forty in the forty six barrel but they didn't have an option for Hemi the C. bodies like the Sport Fury G. is a big car. Now they did give you the four forty six barrel which was cool but come on it would have been so cool to have a sport fury. Gt with a Hemi. Am I wrong? I think it'd be really cool. And you know every car in this lineup. With the exception of the sport fury and the duster you could get him in you know. I think they may have made a mistake. There I think they should have offered the sport fury. Gt with a Hemi. And I think they should have did big blockbusters too. I think that would have made a lot of sense. Especially since they had big block a bodies in the past you know they had dodge darts with big blocks in. They had Plymouth Barracudas with big blocks. So why not throw big block in the dust? I never understood that? That's why I wasn't alive back then and working for Chrysler because I probably would have made decisions like that notice that. Hey we got a duster three forty. Let's do a duster three eighty three or four forty. That'd be pretty fun. And Heck while read. It was due a duster Hemi. Let's do a Hemi duster now if I were to compare the sixty eight dodge SCAP pack versus the Seventy Plymouth Rapid Transit System. That would be a really tough. I might have to do an episode of this show where I compare the SCAP packing the rapid transit system because both of those programs at Chrysler were amazing and they all produce some really really cool cars so I think that'd be a fun comparison. But that's pretty much the gist of the Plymouth Rapid Transit System for nineteen seventy. I thought I would just go over the cars and give you some engine options and then I wanted to include something. That was kind of fun. Close out the show so now that you have a general knowledge of the General Knowledge of the Plymouth Rapid Transit System. Let's do something a little fun here. There were actually some dragged test. Comparisons that were performed by none other than drag racing legends. Ronnie socks and Buddy Martin in some of the rapid transit system cars of nineteen seventy. The cars. They tested were the duster. Three Forty A. G. T. X. With a four forty four barrel a roadrunner with a four forty six barrel a coup two three forty a Khuda three three and a Hemi Khuda. It should be noted here that all the vehicles tested had seven twenty sevens with the exception of the three forty cars the duster and the KHUDA. So let's go over some of those drag times in some of the comments that sox and Martin made from their experiences behind the wheel of some of the cars of the rapid transit system. Let's start with dust or three forty out of ten quarter mile runs the district. Three forty averaged fourteen point zero seven in the quarter mile at one hundred point zero nine miles an hour and along with the test on the drag strip. They also ran all these cars at willow springs which is a two and a half mile road course so along with fourteen second quarter mile. They really pushed the duster on the road. Course their average time was one minute. Fifty point nine seconds at an average speed of eighty one miles an hour and those were the averages from five laps and here are some of the comments sox and Martin made about the dust or three forty. I'd like to own this car. Maneuverable like the way you can hang the tail end out. Nice little car and it doesn't cost much. Think maybe I'm GonNa buy me one. So that was the duster three forty. Let's move onto the road runner. Four forty six borough car out of ten quarter mile runs. They averaged thirteen point. Sixty one at one hundred six point one zero miles. An hour and at willow springs out of seven laps. Their best time was one minute. Fifty point three seconds at Eighty. One point zero six miles. An hour and here are socks and Martin's comments on the roadrunner performance. Wise One of the Best Cars Plymouth offers with the air grabber and the BP Porn. A ball run around breaks field tremendous. The six barrel is really sweet motor. When do we all right? Let's move on to the. Gts Six out of ten runs the GTS averaged thirteen sixty two at one hundred two point ninety one miles an hour and on the road course. The average was one minute. Fifty Point Eight seconds at seventy nine point zero nine miles an hour and the comments from sox and Martin were very strong and comfortable. The family type supercar like the dash layout nice finish equality automobile. Now we're getting into the tests of the Kudos so let's go ahead and start with a coup two. Three forty out of ten runs the average. Quarter-mile E. T. Was a fourteen fifty five at ninety eight point three miles an hour and out of five laps. The average lap time at willow springs for the three forty. Khuda was one minute. Fifty point five seconds at eighty one point four or five miles an hour. The comments that sox and Martin made about the three forty. Khuda were really handles the real sporty car of the bunch. Three forty really screams mild under steer easiest car to adapt to moving onto the three. Khuda out of ten laps. The average quarter-mile was a fourteen thirty nine at ninety eight point ninety eight miles an hour and out of five laps on the willow springs course. The average was one minute. Fifty one point nine seconds at eighty point forty three miles an hour and the sox and Martin comments were cards is flat runs good slapstick. Shifter really gets it done gets around almost as good as the three forty like the color Letsie and last but not least the elephant powered Hemi Khuda out of ten quarter mile runs. The average E. T. was a thirteen fifty four at one hundred seven point two six miles an hour and out of six laps on willow springs the average lap. Time was one minute fifty. Two point. Seven seconds at seventy nine point eighty six miles an hour. Here were the SOX and Martin comments on the Hemi boy nothing but nothing sounds like a good old Hemi. A real hoss carbs flutter just a bit in the turns car understeer might but it feels flat and solid so folks. What did we learn about these tests? I'll tell you one thing. We didn't learn much because we all pretty much knew that the Hemi Khuda was going to beat everybody in the quarter mile but not by much the roadrunner with a four forty six barrel ran an average thirteen sixty one at one hundred six point one miles an hour and the Hemi Khuda ran an average of thirteen fifty four at one hundred seven point two six miles an hour so it barely be the four forty six borough road runner and that's no surprise everybody. There's always this argument about the four forty six pack or six barrel versus the Hemi and whose faster I guess it just depends on which carrier in I would've loved to see the Hemi Khuda versus the four forty six barrel. That would have been a fun run so we learned that the road runner is just a little bit slower than the. Hemi Khuda in the quarter mile. But who on the road course? If you would ask me to take my best guess I probably would have said the duster three forty would have one and I would have assumed that because it's the lightest car the bunch and I would assume that it's more nimble and with the three forty. You know that thing wraps out really good so I wouldn't be surprised if that thing was just hauling around the corners. The only problem is that it was a four speed now with the four speed of helped on the road. Course I don't know I guess it depends on shifting but what we learned. Is that the car that was actually fast on. The road course was surprise. Surprise the four forty six zero roadrunner. It actually beat out these second fastest car which was the three forty Khuda followed by the dust or three forty in third place which was a surprise to me. The three forty Kudo with a four speed is just a little bit faster than three forty duster. I'd really like to drive a three forty duster and a three forty Khuda and just see what the because in my mind. I would think the dust or being lighter would be a better handling automobile but I guess I was wrong. The duster did beat out the Khuda in the quarter mile. So that's kind curious too so I guess if you were comparing the two in which one you really wanted styling side and you were just looking at the numbers. Do you WANNA be faster in the turns or do you. WanNa be faster in a straight line? I'm always gonNA say faster straight line. But that's just me so I guess I would have to go for the dust or three forty but those are the cars of the Rapid Transit System folks. I hope you enjoyed today's episode. And I hope you might learn something new about the Plymouth Rapid Transit System that maybe you didn't know before so thanks for joining me here today. On this installment of high performance heritage everybody offers a car. But only Plymouth offers a system if you can't beat it joining the rapid transit system that does it. I this week talking.

"To the guitar pedal shop in Plymouth and by my guitars acoustics and electrics and I'm very blessed to have that I've also been doing I just joined up to something called cameo I don't know yeah a lot of people are doing it I was skeptical I was on the sands because I didn't want to jump on any bandwagon said I didn't want to take advantage of people not that everyone else is I'm just saying you know when you charge a lot of money for just a quick message I feel uncomfortable with that personally so I went on and I lowered the price to like twenty five Bucks and I'm I'm trying to inspire people with it you know and and trade forum and given towards its hope through this tough time it's really cool I'm gay I'm being blessed by that incredible I've been going to these concerts forever and you mention cats I saw ace Frehley a few years ago right here the last year he did shock me and of course everyone thought like okay it's going to be you know here's a story when I got electrocuted like one floor no he actually went on this sort of patriotic conservative yup pro America DO hold pitch for that in people explode like crowd went crazy have you not seen some of your like more political postings on your personal page Michael and I'm just curious do you see that audience because we do have to go in that direction where you maybe even thought about that twenty or thirty years ago but I feel like the people that are coming out to your shows people are supporting this specific kind of rock and roll still are you kind of starting to lean more maybe a little bit more conservative in their views maybe not in there their lifestyle but in their point of view absolutely well I hope so I mean because that's the way it should be you know and and I'm a I'm a firm believer in I don't care who the president is it you like him or not eight M. love whatever it may be we should still support him in his efforts to try to make the country better and you know when I post something about Donald Trump in support and say I think it you know our team is doing to grow our leaders are doing a great job leads students pandemic and then I get Flack for it I'm thinking to myself wow the hate is so deep sometimes that were blinded by that you know and that's what it's really sad and that's something that Logan I have had conversations about is that it exactly what you're saying is that this is a very serious crisis that a lot of people are affected by not just health wise but financially is their their ability to live across the border and you see from some people that are are blinded by their their bias or their dislike of an individual almost all rooting for that person to fail but when you root for that person to fail you're rooting for the country to fail like we should be wanting everyone to survive and thrive through this the world sale right I mean because you know it's it's a worldwide pandemic that's effecting every single person on the planet right now or will is going to certainly yeah it's really a strange bizarre mentality but man that's unfortunately the world we live in right now and it's it's always been that way and you know but it's not going to stop me from supporting our leaders you know and there's not one man or woman on the planet earth that could run in this situation perfect I do need our prayers and support I mean more now than ever absolutely and that's something we've seen here is part of the impetus for starting the show was we decided if there is an audience that I think is wanting this kind of content nobody this kind of music they're running a lot of these things are cut all lines up together I believe that it's easier week we're having you on and most people use their plans are a little bit different I assume your plates whatever they are your tradition you have forever that most of us have had are going to look a little different you're gonna look a little different now I'm gonna look a little different when I step out my door for the first time probably going to be twenty pounds heavier you know with the beer down to my knees most likely I don't know ma'am but whose tribute bands now I think the key in there the most important point in all of this whether you're a person is safe or not if you're not a person of faith man gosh please become one because that's the only thing that's gonna get us through this yeah it is our trust in the lord our faith in the lord and train humbling ourselves and saying god help us right right certainly brings a different side of peacefulness that maybe you can at least attempt to get to there's a there's a plan to go about it I think that's trimming their moments in our days are obviously it's going to be stressful for me emotional yeah I have in that backbone certainly helps so for you for that first labor infer I know you're doing the tour with with Tony from T. and T. that was supposed to be how is that happening as of now obviously that's in the fall right and that's in the fall it's been postponed to this fall I mean at this point I don't see anybody anybody that does it nobody knows what's happening in the near future right there nobody I mean it it changes as we get these updated changes daily and you know who knows where we're going to be at in September but right now it's postponed to September we're very excited to do this store can't wait to get out the nineteen eighty seven to her yeah the pointed out the title for that is because Tony and I toured together he's in a band called T. and T. striper loudness it was one of the best stores that I've ever been apart and so we're trying to reach bring that back to some degree yes this is wrapping up you know this is the time to read we'll see what we call the next year looks but as as the radically I think mostly on the end of the road tour will see traffic maybe fill that fill that gap a little Hey I mean it indeed we did you know you did it with a few different bands of Paul Stanley calls and says Hey man I'm stepping down star child would you step up would you step up and input on that make money down the road that you were done yellow and black we we go out there shirtless you know I could I would do it I don't know how well I could do it in other words there's only one Paul Stanley absolutely well it's pretty legit though we did it pretty good justice I think there were huge queues and we take that step very serious but I mean still kisses kicks you know you're in there's only one case in there there will always only be one which is telling me there's a chance thank you so much for joining us happy Easter to you and your family it was just on our show in the show's history by the way record is pretty sick yeah in

WBZ's Kim Tunnicliffe was just pulling out of a car dealership in north Attleboro with her brand new car. When it began to hail so hard, she needed to take cover under a bridge.

But there was hail everywhere, all over the road and huge massive puddles were some flooding on route one cards were, you know, picking up all of the last that was flashing all over cars, and tree branches of limbs leaves everywhere is.

A at least eleven flights canceled. All right after eighty four years Suffolk downs will host its final races live or s- racing this weekend. WBZ's Kevin Coleman.
