Orca who carried her dead calf for 1,000 miles is pregnant

"Pregnancies are good news for the southern resident killer whales and right now, it looks like there are three whales including j thirty five who could give birth. But there's a long way to go today. We're GONNA talk about the lives of these orcas and our complicated relationship with them here to do that with us is Linda makes she's the environment reporter at the Seattle Times Linda. Thanks for joining us. Thank you, Trish. So give us a quick recap on J. Thirty five for people who weren't here maybe when her calf died. So J thirty five or Takuma really is the ORCA whale who changed the conversation about this very small population of whales and very sadly trish as I talked to today that population is even smaller than it was two years ago when she gave birth to a female calf and it live for only one half hour, and then she did something that scientists know these animals do as well as other, very, highly intelligent. Socially, bonded animals they grieve and she just refused to let that baby go. Now, this calf is probably six feet. Long weighs about three hundred pounds, and for seventeen days, she just refused to let it go and she had to decide to retire. She went down for breath to pick it up once again and carry it some more, and it really did touch the hearts. People around the world and even though these southern resident orcas have been listed as dangerous since two thousand and five. Suddenly people really did understand for the first time, just how fragile they are, and the fact that these aren't just random black and white wildlife. These are families with very, very close bonds. And why do you think that we feel so attached to these orca because I grew up in the Eighties and Wales were such a big deal. You know every girl had little whale necklace and why do we feel so attached I'm gonNA, make a sound for you inherit comes. That is sound of a whale breathing. They are mammals like us, and that's sound when you hear it, it's like a sound from the beginning of the world. It's It's a magnificent presence to be with these whales and you and you understand as you observe their family bond says, you see the way they take care of one another. You know they're so superior to people they. They have brilliant diplomacy. They share space in the ocean without ever warring or committing any acts of aggression against one another. They've families together for life. It's really quite remarkable and they've been around don't forget this for six million years as a species. So these are in every way our elders and mentors for how to run a successful society and don't forget this. They were doing just fine until we showed up. How do we raise up the cause of the ORCA of the environment here without doing the thing that we tend to do a lot of as humans, which is just the help that hurts, how do we walk that line? Actually, this is easier than ever I mean, let's remember how we got to know these southern resident whales. Well, it was the capture era which by the way was not that long ago. Free, willy. Oh. Yeah. Anybody could go out and catch themselves a killer whale for an aquarium or for that matter, sell it for profit anouar in the world until as recently as are you ready Nineteen, seventy six. So wow, that's really recent. Recent and the only while who've had survived that time is still alive and she's still at the Miami Seaquarium and the fiftieth anniversary of her capture and Penn cove is on August seventh. Wow. This is recent time and ironically it was through seeing these so-called killer whales up close in captivity and realizing their incredible intelligence and they're gentle personalities that people went through a whole change in their understanding about these animals and today they're not only revered but protected and I said it's easier than ever to love these animals without loving them to death God look at what you can watch the documentary footage that's out there to enjoy these animals is so much. Better than anything that has ever been available. The amount of knowledge we have about them is superb growing by the day and you know you can watch them from shore. The idea that you need to spend the money by the way and get on a boat. Go after them. You know that's not the only way to enjoy these whales and I think that it's important to. Show some restraint and also some respect for their space. So. J thirty five is pregnant. Again, this is a good sign but two thirds of pregnancies in this population are lost. I learned this lesson with birds in my backyard last year in a nest so. This is not the time for a baby shower. We have a long way to go here. That's so well said. I would think about it. This way this time to hold space for these oils to hold them in your mind and think about what you can do to help whether it's something that might feel small but adds up such as be involved in local land use decisions in your community. That's where all this getting decided about how much of the puget sound lowlands we retain and how much we pay of over. You know these tedious things that we don't think matter like Oh, the king, county flood control district. Well, you know what they're up to. They're thinking about the future of the Green. River. which is upstream from the Duwamish, the green flows into the duwamish Seattle's only river. It's very important Salmon River for the whales and so things like paying attention to what's the local flood district doing what is going on in my local community? By Way of development? All of these things make a difference especially if all of us do. and. Read learn about these animals become informed. Educate Yourself. You know there are lots of ways to get involved and stay involved and play heart in whether. Tele. Calf actually. Does get born and does survive. To me, that's our work song as a region. May Her next calf with? So J thirty five. How will scientists track her pregnancy? Will very remotely fortunately. The scientists who do this work are John, Durbin? And Holly Fehrenbach, and they're they're a team of scientists who came up with a new method. using drones to photograph these Wales from at least one hundred, few of them and remote Louis activated. So they're far from the whales. So nowhere near them, the whales don't seem to show any notice of these drums when they're flying. And they take suspect hack your pictures, and there's something about the angle from above That's very different from a boat. You can see not only the shape of the whales. You can watch their behavior, their families. I. Make It takes your breath away and it is an entirely new view of the lives of these Wales and when it comes to keep track of j thirty five and the other pregnant whales. They're going to do is take another peek in September. DID THEY FATTEN UP? Did they pump up or are they going into winter in good shape? Are they look stressed or are they looking skinny? Most importantly with regard to her? Is She nice fat around? They'd like to see her a lot rounder in September than she is now for early in her pregnancy, these whales carry their babies, believe it or not for eighteen eighteen months Linda I read that and I thought. Oh. My Gosh Holy. Mackerel A. And actually then the real work starts because they've got to feed not only themselves, but they've got a lactate and that's a very, very high fat milk. So she's got her work cut out for her so they'll immature September and we will all cross our fingers that she's even bigger. And then you know she's either. Going to be carrying another kappa which time. I, don't know what I'll do. Or, we'll see her romping with a baby. You know We'll see what happens next I. do think that we ought to kind of hold our breath. A little bit chances are are high that things won't go well, but it doesn't mean that she couldn't surprise us and we might have some more good news. Let's remember there have been two berths to southern residents and let's remember Linda are bar for hope, is pretty low. Sleep. Vote through. Isn't it for the? Thought, I'd get a good peach these days and I'm just thrilled. Good Peach. Tomato. I'm good.

We will hear about the operations of the woodworking studio as well as a bit about the history of the studio itself mic. Thank you so much for joining me and welcomed. Its would thank you, Daniel. It's a pleasure to be here now. How long have you been? Working here at Barnes since its inception, which goes back more than two years now, and prior to that I was part of the woodworkers group that formed spontaneously on Bainbridge island back in two thousand nine, so I've been at this for more than ten years now. but barn is relatively recent. Yeah, and then we are just so people get a geographic sense Bainbridge. Island is up on the sound in Washington the puget sound. It's absolutely beautiful here. My. Best friend and I kinda toured around a little bit on the island and we've been here before he. He used to live up this area and it's just gorgeous, and do you find that? That this community or this island kind of draws. Artists. Yes very definitely, so my wife and I lived before here on Mercer Island which is on the other side of puget sound, and it's a wealthy bedroom community, not dissimilar from this one, but no artists community at all. Yeah, and so this is very different in that sense really attracts artists, artists, artists ends of all types and. It's also true that people liked living here. And I've actually been told there are people who want to move to Bainbridge island so that they can join barn now. That's a little more than I'm quite ready to believe, but maybe it's true. Yeah, I mean just touring around the little that we dead. There are some ridiculous resources here you WanNa take us through a little bit of that I. Know We're going to talk a lot about the woodworking. But what else can people do here on Bainbridge? Barn Yeah. There are depending on how you count eleven or twelve different studios ranging from the writers group. You know they just have a little room where they sit there and learn how to write. But, they bring in the most impressive array of professional authors. I've ever seen so the other day. I heard that Jay Gaunt's is giving a five hour shop. In the writer's studio, which to me I'm Jay is one of my favorite authors like J P Beaumont a lot. So I was blown away by that. That's want just one studio. We have kitchen arts as they call it. Produces lots of good things to eat, and it's a commercial kitchen in the sense that caterers can rent it. Do they share yes, when they're up there cooking. And every once in a while, we'll make something them. woodworkers made all the cabinetry for example in the room. They used to serve their bigger meals, and they reward us with a couple of plates, cookies or something good to on during the day as you were. Touring the around the woodshop. You were showing me the cabinet tree that you guys built and it's. I don't want to call it over the top for a woodshop. But it's beautiful there. They're all matched doors or veneer. Is it veneer or is it solid? It's all it's all near Oh. Okay, and you said you made upwards of four hundred of these things for the entire barn. As we've lost count so many it's at least four hundred in the early on when the building was still being finished off, we stepped forward to volunteer to make these cabinets for Barnes so that they save tens of thousands of dollars with that effort, but in return the organization. was very much willing to buy us some nice power tools, so we got some excellent. You truly amazing. We do tools out in that Shaba, but the other benefit. If I might interrupt. That is to that we all learn. We were all rookies when it came to building cabinets so in the course of this, I learned how to make euro style cabinets.

So there's a lot of interest in a bill that would raise money by taxing Cos salaries paid too high earners, she added. That's really attractive. The lawmakers now Just as the Seattle Chamber and downtown associations have been critical of jumpstart. Makri says she expects business lobbies to decry of statewide planned attacks These salaries of high earners quoting her here, it's difficult to imagine that if done thoughtfully, one new tax is going to be the thing that will drive business is away.

A Tale To Warm The Cockles Of Your Heart

"We drove about an hour south to visit the Manchester Research Station where Jodi Tuft and her colleagues are based for the untrained eye. Us is just a random collection of buildings that a federal facility tucked away in Manchester Washington. Which is a semi rural area? Not too far from Seattle but really this is the heart of where shellfish research and restoration happens in puget sound. We walked into one of the buildings with Jodi and her colleagues Stewart. Disease them cockles. Right now Stewart is going to open up this kind of funky basket jovic purse. What's going on here so? Yeah these are a handful of cockles. That are roughly one to five millimeters and look like tiny little pebbles. Yes these were from spawns. That happened in early summer. June baby cockles are adorable but it turns out. They're not that easy. To produce at least in a federal research facility has robin found out when she tried to find examples of research on local cockles. Nobody had ever tried to breed them. We have some magicians on staff here. Who are really good at breeding shellfish and so we collected some cockles. Brought them back here. Nothing happened there was no magic. There was wonderful people doing great work and just a whole bunch of cockles sitting in buckets of water and they were not making any debacles. But even before. Jody and the team tried to get the cockles to spawn. They had to make sure they had healthy. Cockles and Vivian. Says that wasn't so easy. Either because some of the cockles had cockle cancer and they determined that they had a communicable cancer neoplasia. So they could all be brought into the hatchery right away. So they had to be quarantined for two weeks in a lab about fifty miles away and kept in a each individual in a separate bucket while they were tested for neo plays see even shellfish have to be quarantined. We really are all in this together. After quarantine the cockles had to be tested to see if they were sick sound familiar or generally there were enough tests but it turns out when you test a cockle for cancer. Sometimes the stress makes them spontaneously released all their spawn in a last ditch attempt to leave a baby cockle behind. And we certainly concerns that we were GONNA do a great job screening for Neo pleasure and then we will have spawned Oliver Cockles. And then that would be that because once a cockle spoons it takes months before it's ready to make babies again. Luckily the cockles did not shoot their load and that was in part because the team had another magician on staff with a very gentle touch to get the blood. They needed for their cancer tests. She was kind of kind of got the nickname the the cockle vampire because she was so good at drawing blood. After the cockle vampire had done her thing all but five of the cockles tested clean which left Jodi and her team with thirty cockles to make babies from this was their brood stock and then the fun really began so we tried. The first time around failed tried again failed. Maybe we could call it. We learned not failed but yeah we failed. They didn't produce anything and then the third time around. We brought them in and use a technique. That's pretty common. And other kinds of production of shellfish other commercial techniques and injected them with Serotonin and they they were off to the races and this also took a gentle touch because the scientists had to inject each cockle by hand in the gonads with a personal shot of Serotonin the Cocco Viagra test to make things even more interesting. Jody and the team had to set up a group sex situation because cockles have a tendency to fertilize themselves. It's actually called selling so. Yeah so the the the cell thing which your face is not making it easy for me to laugh but you know we're professionals here. We are such professionals that we are going to say it again. Just for the GIGGLES. When a cockle does the baby making thing by itself that's called self ing And that's because cockles are actually hermaphrodites. The same animal can be at different times either male or female so if a cockle is alone and it releases eggs than it can release sperm next and fertilize its own offspring. So the thing that comes from the Hem afforded expanding of the cockatiels also great sentenced to get to say is it can be a challenge for maintaining genetic diversity if a cuckold creates thousands of baby cockles. And they're all exactly the same genetically. That would not be a good thing as jody. Says there'd be basically no genetic diversity so with the group sex tank and the cocoa Viagra injections the setting was finally right and the result was cockle. Babies about a million baby cockles. Many of which are out with partners out squamish now growing bigger. Bigger bigger the took all those cockles and put them out in the shallow water of the sound in a floppy an acronym for floating up Weller System. It's sort of like a nursery for clams that is outside so there's water flowing through twenty four seven so they have food all the time and oxygen all the time and that's where they are right now once the baby. Coco's get to about the size of a quarter they can start living where. Coco's belong in the INTERTIDAL zone. We thaw that. They would have been ready by now but they're growing very slowly. There's not that much food in the water right now. Although they're not dying they're just kind of waiting waiting for spring waiting for the big phytoplankton bloom and I think they're really going to start to grow soon. Some of the cockles they raised. Were extra tiny stragglers. Those were the ones that Jodi and Stewart had in the building to show us. We wanted to see them jump. Coco's don't do anything on demand. Apparently okay let's see. Oh Yeah I just I don't. They're not opening and just the shells. The shells are beautiful and I have a whole bucket of shells that the I will show you in a bit because as exciting as You know five millimeter baby cockle is it's not exactly a meals worth now. We only looking at it. You can imagine what they'll look like when they're big they're miniature version. I mean the crazy thing about looking under a microscope is they. Do Look back at dinner. No one's really fun to see. Miniscule baby cockles under the microscope but we really wanted to know was. When will they be ready to eat? So that's the question we keep asking are. Biologists are constantly hearing from us. So when will they be ready? When will they be ready because people talk care about like medicine in terms of food as medicine and Sometimes people say I need to feed my Indian and it's that old school Indian ancestor piece inside you. That really needs these foods. These sovereign foods that we've had since time immemorial to last time I had cockles was about three months ago but that it had been about two years because I just don't Wanna eat them before we can save them. But we're had to have some gotta feed Indian sometimes

Searching For Cockles

"We're in central puget sound in a body of water that we call Port Orchard Passage. This is a very good body of water for Shellfish. Because there's a lot of current coming through this little bottle neck area. There brings a lot of nutrients food. Oxygen Vivian. Barry is the shellfish program manager for the tribe and we met her and her colleague. Jeff more on a tribally owned beach across the sound from Seattle to areas famous for all sorts of seafood especially shellfish oysters and gooey ducks and course clams that we have different types of clams here. We have the the native little neck clams and we have an introduced Manila clam. That's very similar to the little neck. But it's from Asia originally and of course there's The star of today's show cockles which we actually couldn't see so they like to live in the lower intertidal zone and then the subtitle. Apparently there are more cockles. Living under the water than on the beach for those of you who are not up on their whole tidal geography. The Inter title is that part you see at the beach. The wet sand that gets exposed as the tide is going out. The subtitle is under shallow water almost all the time. It's that sliver of sand that only gives exposed at super low tides. Like when there's a full moon and so to get to the cockles in that subtitle's zone Vivian. And Jeff have to wait until the tide is at. It's very very lowest point this time of year. That's around three. A M which is go at night we harvest at night. Yeah we were out there during the day but fortunately there were some cockle shells available on the beach as visually. They see a cockle there. Jeff grab it. Yeah they're weathered but there you can see they look like those ripple chips. They're they're ribbed. They have these long ribs. Come down longitude only. This is what you would see when you're looking in the garden. Cockle shells right from the nursery room round more. Like a ball shape. The Long Ribs Jeff is describing on the shell. It's those same lines in the cockleshell flowers that give the flowers their name. If you've never seen a cockleshell and frankly I hadn't as Jeff said you might know them better from nursery RHYMES MARY. Mary quite contrary. How does your garden grow with silver bells and cockle shells and pretty maids all in a row? No one knows exactly what that means. There's a theory that Mary as Mary. Queen of Scots and the cockle shells are somehow Catholic. But yeah no one knows. And then there's another old English rhyme. I knew as a Kid. It was actually a jump rope song for me. Blue Bells cockle shells a vans British rhyme. So they would have been talking about the different species at cockle. The common cockle as it's called which you find in the UK and Ireland Portugal and all down the Atlantic coast. Morocco cockles have long been a popular food in all these countries. Just one of the many shellfish people enjoyed you might have heard the Irish Song Molly Malone where she selling cockles in the streets of Dublin. We streets gone in the UK. Coco's used to be a pretty common seaside treat. You'd often buy them boiled served in a paper cone and sprinkled with Malt Vinegar. They were popular in the east end of London. And especially in Wales but today those kinds of traditional shellfish like welk's and winkles and cockles. They've become less and less popular. But while cockles are no longer common snacks in seaside towns. They are still actually harvested all along the coast of the UK. They're shipped overnight to elsewhere in Europe like France and the Netherlands where cockles are still popular law of blazes in the UK. That harvesting is still done by hand using cocoa rake. It can be really dangerous work if you get caught by the tide but while we were researching this episode we discovered off the coast of Norfolk. They've developed an ingenious technique that involves driving boats around in circles. This is from a channel four documentary about calls three to four minutes. Yes that's the war talk. The boat's propeller push the sentiment in these re off. Would you use the boat? Wash all the sideway basically There's yet another species of cockle that's widespread in Asia. In Japan. There's a popular cockles Sushi. That's available only one month a year but in a lot of places. Kaka leading has really fallen off. The shelves are hard to open. And especially these European cockles. There's only a tiny bit of meat. Once you do manage to pry them apart but west coast cockles like we said there are different species and they are most decidedly not dainty little things. They're actually quite hefty. They probably can get about a good four inches four five inches. They can get fairly large and heavy in terms of like maybe a schoolboy size little apple so cockles are bigger than clams but there are unusual in another way to most shellfish like the little neck clams in the Manila clams covered the beach. We were on their pretty stationary and when they settle from larvae to an adult they basically dig themselves in and stay in the same place for the rest of their lives but cockles. They are not quite so sedentary. These cockles have a really heavy and strong foot and they're very mobile so they can escape. They're predators by just jumping away from them this jump. It's not just a little hub. This is a full-on leap leap leap away. So one of the Faster Sea Stars is the Sun Star Picnic. Odia helium authorities. These sunflower seeds. Stars are freaky looking. They range in color from bright orange to purple. They get to more than three feet wide. And they have up to twenty four arms covered in suckers and they love to use those suckers to pull apart the two halves of cockleshell and then they chomped down on the flash. They can sense when the sea star is trying to get a hold of him in a foot to just kick away and they can jump off. We're talking we're talking mostly sideways. And then the kind of kick away and SORTA roll along to get away so at a time but enough to get away from a sea star and as long as there have been people living along puget sound. They've been eating those leaping cockles over ten thousand years. I don't know I mean bivalves have been around for you. Know millions of years in the ocean and the tribes have been around these waters. For at least I think the archaeological record say at least fourteen thousand years by all accounts cockles are one hundred percent delicious and a favorite food of the first nations people in the area so they will build a large fire with rocks so the rocks become very hot and they will put the shellfish right the rocks and cover them with seaweed so they basically steam in their own juices. It's over an open flame and it's yeah the the way they've been doing it for forever so it's they've perfected the art they're good. They're really sweet. Really sweet and kind of a rich kind of seafood taste little chewier a little bit meaty so they compared to other clans. I would say there's more richness in the

"The oldest buildings in Washington state. But right now, people are just too busy getting settled and doing what they can with the rest of their lives and. So so it wasn't. It wasn't easy to raise interest in keeping the buildings alive. Then they were very very anxious. Just to go ahead and settle the area and get business done and the buildings that the original part and squalene were getting more and more dilapidated. So by the time, we came to nineteen o seven DuPont owned the city that came to pod. And that the company was devoted, of course to making munitions, and they didn't want to preserve dilapidated old buildings. So they were just going to let them ugly away. Now, Mr. Huggins, Mr. Edward Huggins had been the factor the manager at fort Nisqually. And he tried everything he could think of it even to doing what we'd call a media blitz today. To get people to save those buildings. But now, here's where the problem came in DuPont owns land DuPont doesn't care and the people that live there, then couldn't do anything because pot on the land. Finally in one thousand nine hundred thirty eight the CCC this villian conservation corps and the young men's business. Club of Tacoma got together. And literally moved piece by piece the oldest buildings from fort Nisqually. And you can see them today. Twenty two miles away at a point defiance park in Tacoma. But it couldn't have happened if somebody hadn't seen the importance of the small history. Instead of just leaving it to be when the explorers came. And when they went. The next story. I like to tell kind of goes right along with the ordinance. Qualley story is the story of the Simmons Bush Waggin train. And they came out from the mid west Michael Simons was he was a leader type to the toes. He was given the title of Colonel. And he kept it all his life. Although he never really was occurring. L-? But but he enjoys Bush. Yes, that was the name of the other partner of that wagon train. He George Bush made a good team because George Bush had been a hard worker all his life. He knew how to make money you can do to grow plants. He actually it's stories told that he build a false bottom in the wagons that they brought out the Oregon country to hide money and other valuable things. So it was it was a good. It was a good thing. They did. Well, together, they worked hard. They gathered up a wagon train that was composed of themselves and several of their relatives. And they set off for the Oregon country in eighteen fifty three. But or and it was as well trips wagon train trips. Go pretty uneventful. Because they got there. Sometimes you wonder, you know, you don't quite realize how difficult time travelers on the Oregon trail head because of course, there were no service stations, and there were no seven elevens. And so and the trains, the dwags aren't gonna stop. So they're coming along this trail, and if if there is a call of nature the rule was the gentlemen, got out on the left side of the train the lady Scott out on the right side. And on the ladies side for five friends would make a little circle with their skirts and afford privacy to the lady answering the call, and then she would get up and going in the others would take their turn. But the drive train as the way and train rolled Rydell on as some old western singer youths to say, so the Bush Simmons train continued and they were successful. And they got to Oregon. And that wasn't the end of the story because what I didn't know small history again. Is that when they arrived in Oregon, someone came out to meet them and said. You know, you Michael Simons, you can stay here. But your partner he's got to go. We don't want his kind here. Here's you see George Bush was black. And in fact, and something that was supplies to me was that the Oregon territory was so unwelcoming to people of color that they actually had a law or rule that black people had to be whipped. Once a month is hard to get people to stay around for that, you know. And so the story is that Michael Simmons said, well, he is the best man of us. If he can't stay none of us will stay. But of course, that and of course, none of them did. And that was the gain of those of us who lived on the other side of the Columbia River. But there was that river to cross and it was very difficult. So they actually stated for man cooler. When winter and while they built flat boats barges to cross the Columbia Columbia is a very big river between you have your mind made up you can as we say about do anything you want. So they crossed the Columbia. They next came to fort squally, Hugh member I mentioned for it in this Kwalik, and it had been terrible. It had been a hard hard trip. But they went on down to. Tampa water and for those of you who do not live in the Puget Sound area. It's called was this area was named Tom water by the native Americans because of the sound of water makes it means. Little live literally, noisy falls. And also, they brew fine beer there. But these settlers in do that. Instead, they created their land in their homestead George Bush went on site the bit to where the era area, we now call Olympia, lay Lacey and the head of beautiful farm, and there he was able to plant the trees and the flowers the things that he had brought with him from the from the other world, and do, you know, a wonderful thing. A young couple owns part of that ranch. Now, it's really too big for any one person to own it. Probably, but they are trying to make the area where they are living sustainable. They wanted to be something that all people can enjoy and one thing that is on their farm is the oldest butternut tree in the whole world. And it was George Bush's. He brought it from his old farm back east. And it is there and growing, and it is it is certified to be the oldest sputtering that tree in the world. I don't know why that just just stuns me. I love that story so much. Now, here's another story. I love the turning the pages to see if there's anything good in there. The. The next. The next story is about MRs.

"Another thing happened as well everywhere. We went people would grab me by the arm and say, listen, I got a story to tell you and you've never heard it before. And I would listen and sure enough I hadn't heard before. So those are the stories that I went back in and pitch to my to Arcadia publishing and I thought that was I thought I had all the hard work done the stories were already. But no. Because when I went back to research, the show the stories that we were told everyone of them turned out to be wrong. There's this story we tell there's the story we think, you know. And then there is. All Harvey used to call the rest of the story. And that's what. This book is about and I just hope that maybe you'll wanna read it. But if you don't I will love you still anyway. So the first story I want to share because it is really the the story that started the whole thing is about Horton, a squally. Why did it go? First of all, there's the story. They tell. Nisqually was the first fort in the Puget Sound country the first fort in Washington territory at the time, it was Oregon territory, but it was what would become Washington. And it was of course, founded by the Hudson Bay company now, of course, you've heard about the in bay company everybody has and they started in in eighteen thirty two landed in Puget Sound exploring looking for post where now I got to tell you about the Hudson Bay company they were not that interested in settlers. In fact, they didn't want settlers they wanted traders in that area of the Puget Sound country where the richest most beautiful firs in the world, and they wanted to of course, sell them for profit back home. Now one thing. That surprised me was at the time that the traders had some day company landed in Puget Sound country built afford builds a second part right by my house. They had not at that time. Really had a chance to bring in their traders. And all that kind of thing I visualized the folks working at the forest as being. From eating England. And of course, native American because they are still here. And that's true. They were but there were people from eighteen countries. There were some Olin's there were from the from the wise they were from all over the area because as the captain's ships went around and came back. They filled them with Pete with workers of all different. Nationalities. And all of those people were at fort Nisqually the second Ford location working together. And trying to keep settlers out because that was the way it was. And so. Now when you go by the spot where fort Nisqually was when she got his vacant lot. And every time I walked by there at on my after dinner walk people say Florida's quality used to be there. But the people that lived here didn't realize it was an important historic monument. And so they let it get away. They're just you know, they just didn't care. Well, it turns out nothing could be further from the truth. They did care. But this is what happened for disqualify? You see after a while the settlers did come whether the survey company wanted them or not. And by the way, do you know who the Hudson Bay company is today, they are the longest lasting viable company in the world. And now, they're Saks Fifth Avenue and other companies and has invade company, of course. So as the old saying goes came to do good, and they did right? Well, but they weren't interested in the settlers. Now, they built the part the part is up on a hill. Right. As I say right by my house, but it was never a defense up for for defense in the new pictures that you see of there are the there is the stockade with the pointy gate in the fence that for impaling your enemy. I you know, how that is. Well in the actual old photographs of the original Martin's qualley there were no points because this was not an area where hostile Indians lived. And so it was just for trading. But as time went along, no matter what the has in bay company thought traders are settlers came in the longmire train came and many others. So something had to happen. And I had some big company decided that that point two they turned it over to a subsidiary of those the app. Agricultural company that would be they're selling farm implements and food in that kind of thing, and they that's in big company withdrew at that time. Well, of course, these are the

This new show is for people who want to break away from the ordinary and live as if it mattered. Let's get going Dorothy gets crabby. If you keep waiting. Will this is Dorothy will help as the man said. And once again, we are swimming upstream. Have you noticed you may have noticed we're not making a lot of progress? I seem to pick you up in the same spot and just about thirty minutes from now, I will drop you right where I found you. But in the meantime, why we swim upstream is it's not crowded up here. And you meet some really interesting people that she wouldn't meet otherwise. Now this show I feel a little delicate about this because you see this show. We're going to meet me, you remember Mark Twain saying that what was needed was a person of intellect and personality and talent and skill. And then he added I loot in these fake general. Terms to myself. Well, here's the thing. I thought maybe today I would share with you some stories from my new book true tales of Puget Sound his eyelid. Love you to be as excited as I have about what I have come to call small history. See true tales is a book of small history. And what I mean by that is most history the kind I have trouble learning. Remembering is the big history. It's Lewis and Clark standing on a big rock staring out into the ocean. Which by the way, they thought they were there three weeks before they were, and you know, it's important. And you know, I mean living in in Washington state. We know it's important that they that they didn't find the ocean. But it's the small history, the grabs you like, the native American lady that said, you know, they didn't really find anything we were here the whole time or see nobody tells you about the fact that Lewis and Clark had food poisoning on the way out to the to the dearth west it came came about because like Edo military men. They felt like they really knew the answers and the native American ladies were cooking camas root chemist bulbs, which were a staple of diet in those days and. The thing about cameras, and you may wonder I've heard people ask in this era of sustainable food. Why we don't grow chemists? We don't have it masugi market. Well, because there's a trick to it which the native American women new, and that was they would create sort of a crock pot in the earth. They would dig a hole line with Kohl's bury the cameras and it had to cook for a week, which is a very long time. And I can just see these courageous explorers. A you know, we haven't got time for that. We've got to find the Pacific Ocean. What are we care if it's not as cooked as it should be? We'll be fine. We'll eat it now, and they did that and captain Lewis wrote about captain park laying by the side of the road for a week, not even able to move home. And there were no holiday ends. So when you. When you know that they face incredible hardship with no help from anybody. Someway, in my mind, the small those are the small histories that make the big ones stand out. It's like to quote, myself history doesn't stand still new history was being made as we finished our first Cup of coffee in the morning. And of course, it goes back for that. We can then we can trace we couldn't write about it. If people wouldn't share their stories, and that's where it is book came from everywhere, we went was used to do a show called my hometown. And every month, we would go to a different community in the Puget Sound country of Washington state, and we would do the story of each small town. When I got there. I'd say to the people what do you want people to know about your town? And it was so wonderful because nobody had to have committed a crime or anything they could just tell us what they wanted people to know. And we told that story, but another
