"I'm Jason, Lex and Dawn. Let the Christmas genie out into Jase. I sure did. I sure did. And I I was hoping to do that, but it looks like it's next weekend for me. Well, I had hoped to do, Mohr but I was kind of sidelined. Ah, I was sidelined yesterday on and s. So we only got our table done Our Elizabeth Reese. Ah dining room set done. I call Elizabeth Reese because she loves that Colin and I leave our table set throughout the year Just in case someone drops by So we changed over to our our winter display. So we did the table and we did the tree and I am not joking. I I believe this is probably accurate, if not very close. Rarely have I ever received so many direct messages. Following the posting of an insta story I posted a picture video of the tree. And the table on my instagram account. My personal one. And I woke up this morning with like 30 messages, which doesn't seem like a lot, But really, it is. I mean, I don't care what the topic is. Usually I'll get maybe 56 messages. Or responses to a post to a story. People were loving it, and I think there's just kind of a yearning for something nice for something, you know, festive. So it was really nice. Nice I was I was just waiting for you know the other shoe to drop, but no people were all jolly about it. No, no looks fantastic. Well, thank you, sweetie. I know the shoe drop when I guess I pissed people off with my Kornacki tweet, which were my Kornacki post, which this again hysterical cause It was non partisan. It was just about a TV guy, but whatever people are sensitive nowadays, but no, I was so related cause I you know, Colin and I put it up. I haven't been feeling great. So that was what I was. That kind of slowed me down. And then Colin. It wasn't feeling great. So we were moving kind of slow motion. So I was like, Okay, you know, Should we pull out the stags, you know, so we pull out all the we're waiting on that probably for midweek, but the tree's done the table's done and I woke up this morning and I walked out into the room. And it just made me happy. I turned the tree on while I was getting ready, and I'm like, Oh, it just feels good because now I have two months of this because you work so hard to put these Christmas decorations up. Traditionally, they're only up for like a couple weeks and for us, you know, we always We always we leave on Christmas. So really, I'm I get a week less. So that's why you keep it up through March. Why not? She goes here. She goes down through mom, that whatever you want. I mean, not even like through January, she says March, he says, marched on ground up into a roundup till ST Patrick's Day. Yeah, Dog, she's well, She's telling me she wants me to replace mice. My gold bulbs with green bulbs come Turn it into a ST Patrick's Day tree and number two. You got Valentine's Day. Help, pretty. Would that be hearts up? No, no, no, I'm good. I You know, I was then a soon as we get back. As soon as we get back from our Christmas break, No, that that blank comes down. I almost cost that. Oh, no, no, no. He comes and oh, then I want it down. Unlike OK, I'm sick of the music. I'm sick of the decorations. I I just want it gone. And so, but it's up now. If you want to see it go follow me on Instagram. I sure could use some new ones because I lost 100 over the weekend. People fleed like rats from the Titanic, but go see it, And we're really we did. A silver and gold motif was once did you have to buy a whole new getup for your tree or wars? Did you have those in storage? It's funny that you ask that, Lex because really, don and I were again. We We didn't care. We we gave up. You left Took days off. There was nothing right down there. Wait. Did you laugh Dawn when she's laughing? Oh, no, we We searched a Pottery barn on Friday. Didn't you were looking from which stags happily dawn pigged out ornaments and it was OK, So this is what's so funny? So we're not. We're not joking, Lex. On Friday the Starbucks Holiday Cups were talking about the release of those dawn got, you know, was mentioning the recyclable one that you got that you got on special that day. So then we pulled up the Pottery Barn website cause they're seasonal stuff is out and they had a big sale. The Dawn's going through looking on going through looking dawn found some ornaments that she liked. And I'm not kidding. Don we? Colin and I, we We ventured out of the house once and we went to Pottery Barn. Ah Wei went through and Collins I hear the ornaments Don wants their over here, and I'm like, Well, I think she's joking, but sure, let's go look at him so but Ah, no. So we really didn't get anything new were like, Let's get everything up that we have and see where we need where there's a good okay. I wasn't sure if that was a new motif. You know, Subversion way We mixed it up. We had gold. We had silver and we have red. So what we decided to do was go with the gold and silver beauteous. Yeah. Yeah. So that's what we did, and so old. It made us like last time we got done, and I just It made me feel it. Just put a smile on my face. I was so excited like it's just good to see just it's festive and the smell even though we have an artificial tree. Um, that we bought these candles at Bachman's that don't I wish I could think of the name of it. Colin, Hold on a minute. I'm going to talk about but I do like them, or is it you know you like him? It is a aluminum. Lex I l l U m E. And I and I hear that they're that candle has made him in a soda and I got the bowl. Cem in cedar on DH. It's a soy candle, and it smells. Riel and not that fake crap that makes you gag. It's a just a nice kind of Christmas tree smell If you use an artificial tree, and we do we switched over a couple years ago, and we've never looked back like if you look at my tree on which to because of the dog. Yeah, totally like if you go right now, if you look at my tree I don't think it looks fake. I I don't think it looks like you went out and hacked that thing down its huge. That's 10 10. Ft. I love it. Did you get the plates You were talking about that you wanted I'd see Cem. I'm back on the Pottery barn. Thank you. There's some really cute Christmas plates. Did you update We did not. Because you know what? If again If you so so desire to follow me. You'll see you're sounding more pathetic. And I know I'm doing it on purpose. But I need to replace the 100 people that unfollowed me because they were so enraged that I posted about Steve Kornacki. But anyway, if you look, no, it's funny that you ask that dawn because I'm actually really proud of those plates. And here's why there's a cute little and I think everybody has this benchmark in their life. Those plates on my table, though they look fancy and the table scape looks fancy when I'm what I'm so proud of those plates are from target. And they were one of the first nice things that I bought for myself when I started having a little bit of disposable income when I when I started working at my talk, and I had a secondary income wasn't a lot, But I was making enough where I wasn't.

You know, what the best thing in the world. And by the way, this is also good create a lot of security protection for you last pass. Now, look, I get nothing. I didn't register for any affiliate links or anything like that another several players in this field. But I, but I've had experience using last pass and out. I think it is phenomenal. Because what we're able to do is I created several shit. Basically, I went into my last pass accountant if there was any financial accounts that I had for our for the couple credit cards mortgage. My Bank account statements are investment accounts shared account access with her, and it was a very easy thing. She's got her own last pass account. I've got mon-.

All man. Why not it's another number? Oh, Google, Google, Google number and this number. It will not let you had the second voice number two four two. So it's like, well, what good is this really gotta do me. You know, because I do have I do have an iphone. I have a I have a I have a project by a break. Yeah. Yep. AT and T will let me interview. No, of course, cell phone number. But some people do call me on some and that will work, but it's like, okay. What do me if I can't can't forward to it? Right. So you have any recommendations. Yeah. So the OB is working with the number. No one knows. And you can't use Google voice or fi in your case. You can't forward it to another to go. So what does it say? When you try to forward it to Google voice number just says, no, no, no. You can't board it to this number light. They have this on my. It's really frustrating. Google. I mean, I guess it is a free service. Right. So FIS not you pay for fi- voice is a free service. So I guess it's not. Yeah. It does say actually on the Google voice. Google fi help you can't use OB high devices. Right. Yeah. I sure did a little research. What he no? I appreciate it. Because I did not know that I did not know that and a lot of other features of Google voice, by the way are not available on five like call recording call switching caller ID. Text message to Email. Yeah. So this is very annoying. Well, I thought you know, what I'm at home, this'll be a pain. But if I had my iphone number. Yeah. You could do that. Other than the boys. You know, give me one thing. To make sure I drink call boarding, all if that's what I'm that's an interesting thing. So you have Google voice. Okay. I get it. What you're saying is have fi- forward to my iphone, which I do already. But I can then you start whatever it is start six three to forward. My iphone to my OB. Exactly. Or are the other way round. Like the OBI called the iphone, right or? No. Yeah. Do that. Yeah. Yeah. And you could even do that permanently. Although. No. When you go to when you get home, you could actually, you know, you do you do a shortcut have you played with the IRS twelve shortcut you could make a shortcut that says when I get home forward my cell phone to my Google voice number. I I heard you talking about that feature last week. Yeah. That was a pretty sure could do that. It can it knows your location. I'm pretty sure although shortcuts let's not get too off topic here, but you're cuts I noticed because I played with it yesterday because I had told a caller I try to figure out if there was a way to listen to your playlist for fifteen seconds each. On. And it looks like the shortcuts won't let me do that. I don't know. Why not? But it doesn't seem to want the obvious way to do. It doesn't seem to work. So I'm gonna keep playing with it. But that's there's a limitation. This is know. Okay. This is what happens when you move into a walled garden, all computing has limitations. But the, but what you'll see is for economic reasons. Often companies limit the things you can do even though there's no technical reason. You couldn't do it. Remember that fi is actually an MVP NO there's reselling connections for T mobile sprint and US cellular. And so they made, you know, t mobile means said, well, yeah. Whatever you do don't let it work with Google voice. I mean, I don't know what the behind the scenes negotiations were. I wanna ask you one more question your voice, and how you're using it with your your setup Gano. You're always gonna you phones to value. Yes. That's why I use it. Right. Right. So my question is if I have my iphone, and I'm out, you know, I'm out, and I don't have the hang on a second. I have to take hang on. We'll talk some more to you. Because I I I sense a fellow suffer.

"Hey, Julia for London here, three stories you need to know about today. Donald Trump says that dealing with Putin will be easier than his UK visit. So I head of this upcoming visit President, Donald Trump, praised Boris Johnson and described the UK as a quote, situation with turmoil Trump is preparing for a trip to Brussels for a NATO meeting, and the comments come as Prime Minister Theresa may faces a series of very high level resignations over her Brexit agreement. Boris Johnson who is foreign secretary is the most high profile of the recent resignations speaking to reporters at the White House Trump made the following remarks. They do. I have the UK which is in somewhat turmoil, and I have Putin, frankly, Putin. Maybe the easiest of a ball we would think would think Downing Street spokesperson downplayed Trump's comments and said that he believed Trump's at it as a joke. Trump's visit will be met with widespread protests over his policies including a large blimp effigy that will fly over the capital of Trump in a diaper 2018 everyone. Anything can happen. So to start off, I'm going to explain to you how the amazing rescue mission saved the tie soccer team that was trapped in the cave. So in late June, the tie boy, soccer team MU pile went missing as you probably know. They were found ten days later in a flooded cave. And now after eighteen days total in the cave, all of the boys and their coach have been rescued. It's been a whirlwind of a story. And at first it seemed like they'd never be found. Then when they were found, they were told that rescue could've taken months and then retired, tiny seal. Simone Gounon died during the treacherous dive and the risk of running out of oxygen shorten the time line for the rescue. But yesterday, a team of divers successfully rescued the entire team ninety. Divers took part in the operation including forty from Thailand. They did it in three stages starting on Sunday, the divers ventured into this claustrophobic cave. It's really incredible to see how tiny spaces were in the cave and they retrieved two boys at a time. The boys wore. Or full-face oxygen masks, and we're tied with a rope. It was two divers for every boy. One held the child and a second air tank, and the other one followed behind the boys were also given anti anxiety medication to prevent them from panicking through the whole thing. When the twelfth boy was freed volunteers spontaneously broke into song. Every single boy arrived safely. And in surprisingly good condition, they're spending the next week in the hospital though until the risk of infection has lifted and the Thai authorities are closely guarding. The boys privacy overall, everybody thought of everything and everyone did their job really, really well and don't forget Elon Musk, even built a mini submarine that rescue officials deemed impractical. So it went completely unused. Thanks but no, thanks Ilan. So, yeah, the boys are free. Facebook ads are going to start feeling a whole lot more like shopping in a store. Facebook announced yesterday that it's rolling out augmented reality ads that allow users to try on sunglasses, makeup and furniture inside their news feeds.
