"Barrier. According to a Secret Service spokesperson it happened late last night just before 10 p.m. Monday night on the north side of Lafayette square we're told near The White House officers were able to detain the driver and no Secret Service officers or White House personnel were hurt in the crash. Officials say the truck has been deemed safe after an inspection investigators believe the dryer may have intentionally crashed into the barrier. They say charges will be filed by U.S. park police.

While dean, we've been telling you this might happen throughout the morning, at least until 3 a.m., I 95 northbound in Fredericksburg around U.S. route 17. It looks to be stopped again around mile marker one 34. So anticipate that a backup and a stack up will start to happen north of the verapamil panic river down beyond its south of the rappahannock river on 95 northbound. Again, it might just be easier if you have the opportunity coming up from Pennsylvania before you get to Fredericksburg to try and find an alternate route to crossing the rappahannock and then getting back to I 95 northbound after route 17.

"All right, big thanks to Travis stone for joining us. Always good to catch up with Travis. I feel like we do that every year a couple of weeks before Derby. Don't want to bug him Derby week. But I appreciate his time and wisdom and looking forward to hearing him back on the mic. As I said, been a few months since we heard Travis on the mic. I often love to share the story that Travis and I started like our careers, like two weeks apart. I started April 14th. In fact, when I saw April 14th on the calendar recently, I remember thinking like, why does this day ring a bell? And I remembered I said, that was my first day at river downs. April 14th O 6. Commander Robin, but if you go look up the echo base chart, you'll see a commander Robin won the first race that day. That was the race, my departed friend, Jeff riddell, rest in peace, Jeff. He came up a minute before post. I didn't really know him that well, I'd only been there a week. And he comes barging in, scares me to death and he goes, are you nervous? He said, yeah, and he goes, don't worry, nobody's listening. And it helped me relax a little bit. I think it was a muddy day too. I remember it raining. And then Travis started though, I believe it was oaks day on at Louisiana downs. Calling races. So yeah, so that's that important. But I've been good friends with him for ever since. And I always appreciate his friendship and appreciate him having some time for us on the show here tomorrow. Trainer, Sarah Hamilton is going to join us on tomorrow's broadcast of this program, trainer based Kentucky, one of first race keen last week, big open length, two year old wins. We'll talk about that more. And I look forward to that on tomorrow's show. And then, of course, we'll look ahead to the weekend of racing and some of the stuff coming up in, you know, obviously opening night at Churchill bounce et cetera. We will certainly talk about that. The is it rock Celine or Roxy Atlanta? I forget. But Belmont park opening up, Belmont opens, I believe. Thursday or Friday, I haven't looked yet. Talk about that. The big part of Golden Gate fields will preview the San Francisco mile, which is one of my favorite I Golden Gate has a couple races the all American, the San Francisco. I've been to each of them live. They're just and they often often often turn into really good races, like they get big fields and stuff like that. San Anita with a big card, Charlie, winning him, Santa margarita. Hopefully entries are out before Wednesday evening when we talk about those. That's what always makes it tough. But we'll do all of that on Thursday show. So I appreciate Travis. We'll talk to you guys tomorrow. Everybody have a great rest of your Tuesday..

"I wish it was a little more weather friendly, but arguably one of the greatest breeders cup class classic performances I still know it's the fastest but go sapper in 59 and change going to mile to quarter. I mean that was that was spectacular. But that's there's a very fond memories of my days in Texas. Texas is still ripe for the taking in this industry. I mean, if they're able to get continue to get some help, I know they got some legislatively this past year. That's helped, but there are so many lovers of the horse in that part of the country. You mentioned coming to Churchill in 2008, I was kind of thinking timeline wise if you got to know Luke cry boss very well because I know he passed away that year and I tried it any time we could excuse to talk about Luke on the show I want to do it just because I kind of want to keep his memory alive. Did you and him get to, like I said, he died in the middle of 2008, right? And he did, that was, I mean, what a year to remember. I started 61 days out of that year's Derby. That was the big Brown Derby where 8 bells was the first and only. Fatality in Derby's history. And I remember thinking at the time, I said, well, this can't get any worse. Yeah. And you look at some of the things that happened. And that summer, it was that summer after that spring meet. Luke passed away. I think it was a 47, 48. At the time, he was such a big personality. I got to know a first no Luke for my days at Hollywood park. Mister Hubbard, he called races at Rio do so, mister Hubbard owned Hollywood park at the time. And I think he sensed Trevor denman was kind of one foot out the door. And I remember he brought over Luke one day to call the races in our December. And I think he had that big box of crayolas and my favorite Luke crypto story. I guess I could tell this. We'll find out. We got the edit button ready if we need to. I mean, I guess I can tell this. He and his buddies, Luke was famous for, well, first of all, I think he called his first Derby here. The day after he drove over to river downs. He did that. I think he did that every night. He did that every year after the Derby. Yeah. But that's so Luke. Well, him and a bunch of buddies are on a road trip on the east coast. And I don't know where they're at. Let's just say, I don't know, mountaineer or something like that. And they all looked at they were there for an afternoon program and they decided if they drove and left right now, they could make it to, I don't know, Meadowlands for the last three races. So they all decided to do it. Well, they've been having a good time. And midway there, they're speeding, probably up the highway. And one of the guys in the car has to pull over. Hey, I got to use a restaurant. And it's not number one. Anybody have any toilet paper? Nobody's got any toilet paper. Guy yells out. Well, just give me pen national. Give me pen national. So anyway, that's a story used to love to tell and he was he was awesome. The best. On their forget one time, I went down there. I guess it would have been O 7 or O 8, but I was visiting him and I was up there with him in the booth before the races and he gets a call from TV and he's like, oh, okay. And so he goes on and he says, you know, here's our national anthem and because you saw Steve buttleman with pride. You know, our national anthem. But it was the tape playing the anthem. And he turns around and he goes, but it's late. I go, oh yeah, what happened? He's like, he said the drive-through line at McDonald's was too long. And I told Luke, I go, I almost appreciate him for being honest about that. He could have just said it's got a flat tire or something, but now that the drive-through McDonald's was too long. I have to admit, I think mister buttleman, he's been here 26 years now. This will become up his 27th Derby. This coming year, I believe he still visits the McDonald's drive-through from time to time. And you'll notice it on the simulcast. If it's date, you can almost bet he was in the McDonald's drive-through. So good. Darren Rogers joining us here on the program. So, you know, this is a guess, but I would assume your job changes a bit when racing is going on versus kind of during the off season right now. Obviously the lead up to the Derby is part, but my accurate into that, or is it kind of the same thing all year round? Yeah, I mean, like, you know, this time of year, you know, there's never, there's never a slow time at Churchill downs. We have the three meets now. We're always thinking about Derby. We're always making plans for Derby. How can we elevate the experience, so I mean, during a race meet, yes, probably working most race days, this time of year, you try to have or outside of a race meet, you're on more of a Monday through Friday type of regular schedule, but in this game, especially when you are doing public relations and communications, there's no such thing as an off day. You're always on call. You can't control when news breaks. So. It's demanding on your time. It is. But those are good problems. When you're doing what you love, you know, and you know I was fortunate. I'm married now for 20 years and I met my wife, she used to work in group sales at lone star park. Now she didn't know anything about racing. In fact, our overlap together was about working together. It was only about four months. But she worked there and she understood night racing and she understood the goofy Wednesday through Sunday schedules. So I'm very lucky in that aspect. Try to explain, I bet you do. I was just going to say this experience has been humbling with that because they're like, you live in three places. Yes, I do. Correct. And so, you know, I do my darndest to try to make any we've got a son who's now 16. He's always been very active in sports. I try to be there at the games. The company here has always been great about that. You need to sneak away for two hours. Just go do it. The expectations just get your stuff done. And so that's always been great. So to have that support system of a wife and the sun gets it and that's very helpful. But you're always on call. I'm curious about sending out news and press releases and stuff. Obviously, not all news is created equal. So sometimes there might be, you know, so and so on is thousandth race. Okay, great. You know, whatever, maybe a blip in the paper, but you know, I'm sure when you announce that The Kentucky Derby's postponed.

"As the name might have given away, I'm Jason beam, and we talk about horse racing. So that's what we're going to do.

"Putting big races of some sort, you know, I mean, obviously the level varies to turn big. But put them on a Monday or Tuesday sometimes. Give us something fun to do and talk about midweek. We don't need to just pack everything in on Saturday. We're a 7 day a week, 364 day a year sport. I feel like Christmas Eve, they didn't run the last couple years, but I know a few tracks do. I think we run a tampon on Christmas Eve this year. It's a Friday, Christmas is on a Saturday this year. So we will have a weekend with no big Saturday races because of Christmas. You know, it was funny. The story I thought about when I saw the I rod was running at Etsy park and the prat was writing to him. Is probably the most remote track in the country as far as like a major track. Like it's in Hobbs, New Mexico, which is kind of out there. I feel like the closest big city is like El Paso and I guess Amarillo and Lubbock are not that far. Amarillo, I think what is it? Lubbock is like a hundred miles away. I think are 90 miles away. And Odessa and Midland, but like do they have major airports in those places? Because Albuquerque and El Paso both like four hours away. It's like in the bottom right corner of New Mexico. It's out there. But what I was thinking about because I remember thinking, wow, they're going to go out for that race. You know, be quarter $1 million is a lot of race, but you know, those guys win quarter $1 million races in their sleep. But I was thinking about a buddy of mine. In fact, we talked about him the other day, Garret Norton, who was the chart caller there in the northwest. I talked about his retirement, but that last day, grant's pass, his dad was a trainer, nub Norton was his name. I think he's an Equis norbert Norton, but his nickname was neb. And now I guess it got a little bit of a fight with the stewards about something. And when it enters his horse, and so he entered the horse and, you know, this is obviously back in the 70s or 80s or whatever, and he listed Bill shoemaker's jockey. And this I think this was a Salem, which was not even around anymore. And so the stewards call him in. And, you know, like I said, they'd already had a spat. So they're like, no, what the hell is this? Did you make her say he's riding this horse and never response was, well, he didn't say he wasn't riding him. And they said, if he doesn't ride, we're going to find you know X amount. You know, because really, it's funny. So when horses are entered, I've worked in the race office for a little bit when I was at river downs. And, you know, truthfully, like you just have to name a rider. You don't mean the guy can have literally zero intent writing for you. You know, there's sometimes there's clerical mistakes somebody, you know, miss you know, we used to have two. There was two Luis Torres is in the system at Portland. And so we had J Luis Torres, but there was also a Luis Torres and there was once in a while. The entry person would just click on the wrong thing and it would just get past everybody and you'd have to change it, you know, make the correction on the the day of racing, but like really, people can just go and be like, yeah, yeah, Johnny V's ride and force this week. Oh, really? Oh, yeah, yeah, said he was. And then, you know, obviously, he never was, but there's things like that that can happen in the racing world, but I always love that story. Well, he never said he wasn't right. But shoemaker. The other good enough Norton story, which is one of my favorites was they were at long acres and nub had named a bug boy who was brand new to ride his horse. And so they're in the paddock nub in the owner. The owner says, you know, I've never heard of this jockey. We got ride in this, and he goes, well, Pete, the good news is he's never heard of you either. And then, you know, kid came in, wrote the race for him. I never heard the actual result of that race. When the stories from the 70s, who knows, but anyways, those came to my mind when I was reading about irad and Pratt going to little Z park. But cool for Zia, right? Like they deserved to have some big names come over their big races. We'll probably talk about some of those races maybe early next week. Maybe at the end of the day, they put the entries out a week in advance, makes it makes it kind of nice for us. So yeah, like I said, tomorrow, we will be by myself. We'll talk a little weekend preview stuff, maybe some horseplayer topics. And Friday, of course, the jury will be here. At least partial jury, no Ed. And we'll do what we'll do that. So I'm looking forward to it really appreciate everybody who tunes into the broadcast and we hope you'll continue to join us here. On the JSON meet horse racing podcast brought to you by twin spires everybody have great rest of your Wednesday..

"So I use it all the time when I'm handicapping for race replays. But so yeah, so those are the two those are the two companies Robert's communications and racetrack television network. And not a lot of people when they're watching racing know about it, but it's actually pretty incredible kind of like what Todd influence has been on the industry. Kind of a cool story. I'll tell you a funny story. The first time I kind of learned about what Robert was, was at my when I got hired at Portland Meadows for year round. I was in charge of guest services. And my boss will at the time, who you might know, where he's a night or New York kind of guy, but anyways, he he's showing me out of the front area. Will that's him, that was a great guy. When I was there, just a super nice guy. Very tall. Handsome, too, yeah, for sure. Very handy. But he pulled me out to the front room and we had a Portland we had this huge wall, bank of TVs, you don't like a lot of places did. He said, tell me what's going on up here and say, well, you know, we got the dogs right here. We got the prime horse tracks here. We got the afternoons here and he goes, he goes, what's that over there? I go, oh yeah, we gotta update that TV, and it was the Roberts home screen, which I'm sure anybody who's been to an OTB has seen the Robert's home screen. It's essentially like a rotating menu of here, this is what channel you can watch Hawthorne. This is what, you know, it's their your guys home screen when there's not a signal going out on that channel. And my boss goes, I want you to think of the Robert's home screen as a middle finger to our customers. Because if it's up there, that means we have not set a proper track that's running on that TV. And so, you know, and obviously that's not a knock on. You guys, it's a knock on us, the customer to service part department, but I always thought that was so great. He's like, if we see that, he goes, you run and you change it. And so every time you gotta have as much as much action that's it. Oh, I mean, every time I go to a track and I see the Roberts home screen, I think about that and will saying that. I know Brian to young also works over there with you guys in fun fact, Brian gave me my first announcing job at river downs. He was who hired me. Brian is super nice guy. One of the nicest guys will meet in the industry. He was just overseas in France and walking some racing that whenever he goes on vacation. I know he's going to send me some racing photos and no matter where he is in the world. He's going to go to McDonald's. He'll go to Paris and I'll be like, oh, what makes restaurants? Did you eat that? And McDonald's, you know? So we're going to work on expanding his palette, but Brian's just a fantastic guy. It's so funny you mentioned that because, you know, I've never seen anybody that travels as much to random racetracks as he does. It's downright impressive. Other than that guy pod that Ed's always talking about the love at live guy. But anyway, but yeah. Just for a weekend. Brian would come to Portland Meadows from, you know, Las Vegas for Oregon championship day on a Monday. You know, you go out and hike multnomah falls or something like that. And then but he would tie in and it was crazy, but he would do that for tracks all over the country, and it's funny because when we went to dinner, we went to a horrible burger joint now that you mentioned it was really bad for your place by Portland airport, but yeah, those are my two Robert stories, the middle finger and Brian Dee young, but I want to talk about your horse playing and just kind of your initial attraction to racing did it come through the betting side of things or was it just kind of as a fan as a kid or how did you first get into it? Yes. So the first rate that I ever remember watching on TV and I'm going to double check the date here. But it was strike the goal winning The Kentucky Derby. And I want to say it was 1991. So I would have been 11 years old and I remember watching on TV and it's a Kentucky Derby and you see this horse come from like way out of the pack and run down everyone in the stretch and it's sort of started my love affair with kind of like deep closers, although now I've got appreciation for all the different kinds of runners that are out there. But I remember watching and I recorded it on the VHS. And I remember watching it so many times that I burned out the VHS tape to the point where it was grainy and almost unwatchable. I just thought it was like the coolest thing. And something about also the pleasing aesthetic nature of horse racing where you've got all the different colors, the saddle towels, the jockey silks. And I love animals. I also love gambling. And so all these kind of things come together with horses. Obviously, I was 11 at the time. But then I remember, I grew up in Philadelphia and I were watching phone bet TV. And I look in the morning and I think it was maybe Craig Donnelly or something in the Philadelphia inquirer, I would look at the picks that he would make and he'd have a little comment. And I remember I'd get home from school and I would kind of like circle horses that I thought had a chance. It was all based on his comments because pretty young and that's all I have. And then I would watch the races on phone that TV, not betting anything. And then the first time that I think when I got my driver's license, I started dragging friends out to Delaware park, which is a beautiful place now, but before they had the casino, it was just what a beautiful track and the paddock, the paddock is still very nice. But Delaware was just stellar is just a beautiful place. I used to go there all the time and probably the worst thing that ever happened to me was that the first time I went to the races and I think I was 18..

"Humidity after it was so funny. Because when i left town this morning i take a walk every morning in virginia. Usually about six thirty or seven. Because you gotta get out and do it before it gets too hot. But it's so humid that you still sweat like a hawk and jessica. She always goes out and runs in a little better shape than i am. That's a side conversation so sh- i texted her when i left i got. It's like noticeably crisp. Outside and so i texted me or is it like the soon as we leave it gets cold. She's like it's so nice out and yeah the whole day it was. It was just a perfect day to drive. I love these cross country drives. And i i like to post a little videos of my trips. You can find my youtube page. And it gets you to slash jason beam. Hit subscribe to them close to a thousand subscribers. That's that was one of my goals for the year. I think it was actually for last year. But i moved into this year because it didn't happen yet but getting close there. I think one hundred fifty left. I'm at like eight fifty or eight forty or something but anyway it was like it was just a perfect day to drive Cross country and had went. So i went hung out with vince. Watch some races bell. Tear it still. It looks a little like river downs. But it's just not the same. It's a new building it's comfortable. It's a great place to spend a day at the races but it just river. Downs had such charm. I've heard a lot of people over the years. Talk about long acres in emerald downs. That way too. And i'm sure a lot of a lot of tracks are like that right like they. I mean we've talked with alan about it yesterday. Talk about going. To old. Churchill downs obviously new churchill. Downs is gorgeous but it's different than old churchill. Downs and I think i think every track is going to have that because honestly if they stay in the the old way they they just after decades they're going to feel outdated and uncomfortable and you know they need the upkeep but Yeah it was fun to spend there. So i went to. I told vince. I said hey. You don't want to. I want to go to. Dinner at scotties is italian. Place i used to love to go. I lived when i lived. I bought a condo in cincinnati. Of course. I bought it right at the peak of the market. You know seven. The market crashed in. What oh eight. Oh nine and then. I sold it in two thousand ten. Guess how i did on the dick. I lost forty thousand dollars and it was like one hundred i paid. I paid one hundred and thirty four. It and i sold it for like ninety seven and then of course you pay the fees and everything so i think i got back ninety but i paid for the down payment so i only got back ten thousand so that was. That was the forty thousand. Got out from me. But so i actually. I drove by the condo. Too and i was like. There's there's there's by forty thousand dollar pit. Oh boy would. I love their forty grand back for that but anyways so drove around downtown cincinnati. And you know i. It's funny i. I'm very nostalgic about a lot of stuff. It's a it's probably a character. Flaw more than it is a blessing. Like i just. I overly remember the past. And i spent a lot of time trying to be present because i think with anxiety like you're focused on the past and the future too much not in the present but i am guilty of being a little bit too glamorizing of the past and longing and all that kind of stuff and so i found myself today so i'm like okay. I'm going to go to my favorite place. I used to go to this place scotties. It's a little italian restaurant it's been around for. I think a hundred eight or nine years. Like i remember shortly after i left. They had their hundredth anniversary. And it's it's like two brothers and a sister on it. Their fourth or fifth generation owners. Same family who had it forever and you know. I had a very specific meal when i went there. I would get the veal parm and they always bring it with a little side of pasta with meat sauce and You get a salad which has like these neon green like little kind of peppers or something on top of them. They're very distinct color. Assist the thing. I remembered about him. But you get bread and you get minestrone soup. And it's a huge meal. It's like thirty three dollars to. It's not cheap for over. You know for for what it is. It's expensive but like i always kind of liked that about it like it should be expensive so i went in there and you know hundred tenure. They haven't changed anything you know. They got the candles with the wax dripping over the side of the wine bottle. Like you know. It's stereotypical almost in its old school. American italian restaurant feel chianti bottles hanging from the ceiling. The whole nightmare. That's just a tiny little room. It's fifteen feet wide by forty feet deep or something probably fifteen eighteen tables. So i walk in and i went right at opening time because i got up at five. Am so you know. My food clock was a little early and it plus. I thought i wanna get into now because i needed to finish taping the podcast do all that so i go in. I opened the door. It looks the exact same and the waiter comes out and it's the same guy. That was there when i used to go there. Fourteen fifteen years ago to one of the brothers and he looks a lot like daniel nagorno the poker player like a lot to wear like. I used to back in the day. Think wow daniel. Ground news on attain restaurant. But so i feel parliament. He comes back and he's like all the feels not ready yet. I go where he's not ready to well. They got prep. How men so. I said okay. What about chicken. Chicken chicken okay. So i get the chicken parm. So he comes out with the bread and the ministry super like men and and eat that the salad comes out with the neon green peppers. And i was completely floored. It was truly surreal because every course that they brought out even the bread was the exact same from fifteen years ago and every item. That would come out. I knew what it was gonna taste. Like and i don't i don't know that i can. I mean sure you're gonna mcdonalds you get a big mac kind of have a sense of what it's going to taste like but i just. I was floored by how everything.

That was causing Jeff Van Gundy to question the call, causing Mark Mark Jackson to say. Don't look at me. I'm not ref in. That's my boy Wants Jackson Still rock with Marky Mark Jackson. I do. That's my boy on the other river is the amount of Walter's people are coming in with another great Walters. I'd like Tonto. There's the ultimate Walter. Thank you. Good thinking, man. This is Harold. I'm sorry. He sounds like an honorary Walter the he's a dirty play, Harold. My bad, My bad, but I forgot. No Cronkite, Disney. White from breaking bad. We've dropped these before. I think when Walter was going a little bit, and then Becker is the steely dan guy you were talking. Thank you. Stef. Steve Kerr used the phrase a bitter pill. Swallow, which leads me if you want to, like kind of gather around the campfire and lick our wounds this morning, I could give you a super fan story that involves that phrase. It's a bitter pill. This is a true story. Now. True as they all are all the super fan stories are true. So for people just tuning in what Super fan over the last several years Much to my surprise, Paulie Mac copes have enjoyed beyond my just beyond my belief. The stories of my college mate who was the single most arranged Super fan of all time he was a U C l, A proven who you see who did things in his phantom that blew my mind all the time. His relentless a blind loyalty. His 10,000% blind passion for his team's has refused to accept any criticism or comments. But it's all sports. It's all talking swimming gymnastics. Holy bullshit. It's not just the major sports. He's a super fan. There's no question so 1987 U. S C. U C L a game, All right. We're playing for the rose, but when it goes to the Rose Bowl The big game at we lose, Erica falter catches a ball that would not be a touchdown today. Tim Ryan is referenced this on the year Tim Record a bro out felt or was a filter was inbound, bro. Remember that I was like? No, he wasn't because Eric applicants showing the ball out of bounds. I got news, bro. In that game. Eric Turner future. Reiter made a pick six and was streaking down the sideline to end the first half. Rodney Peete jumped and pulled his face mask down to stop it. No flag. Anyway, a bunch of things went wrong. I had to write the headline on the story for the paper. Nice and I just had a picture is a picture of Eric Turner sitting on the field alone, just depressed, and I went Bruins swallow a bitter Comma, bitter pill. That was what I went with bitters. I went with Bruins up a bitter, bitter pill, so I got one of the phrase. It's a bitter pill to swallow. I gotta tell you the truth. I didn't care for the second bit ready for this dude walked in, walked in with the paper through a death. I don't like this, Dude. I told you don't notice. It was like, what do you mean? Because I do he uses. There's nothing in here about the officials, dude, nothing in here. But how is it a bitter pill when it was taken from us, Dude, I was like, Wow, it's exactly because it's a little excessive. It's a little harsh. I didn't know I could do that all and stormed out. Yeah. There you go down, So I got something like it at all any time I hear this directly anytime I hear the phrase bitter pill to swallow. I'm taking back to that moment in 1987. How did you guys make up after that with him, he just moves on. Maybe I lost my temper, Do it. It was a moment of rage. Didn't he made me question The headlines like without a bad headline was like maybe you got the time. You know Now he's a comic for at the time. He was a year older than me. You always accuse a big dude. Well, he was higher up on the chair. You always say that should not be forgotten. I think we all forget this. I'm murky, Murph.

Stuff must go That little runner, though I would have liked that. I thought when he came off that screen and he looked up and he's like, Oh, nobody's around me. I think he was sort of surprised, and I just sort of like that little runner off the front of the room. And I would like the pool three pointer that went and then and then the way they handled the rebound with 7.3 seconds left. It didn't get the time out till 2.1 Why they take so long to take out. The Lakers just collapses, telling them to go and then they They didn't really go. I don't They lost time. I don't know if they lost Checking the clock or you give the Lakers credit for really pressing curry with the ball. I don't need picking here, but I'd like to end on the basketball too. And we had 2.1. I'd like to end on the ball. Okay. I'd like to get a shot off. Here's my question. Is there any Is there any scenario where you want to use Stephens? A decoy there? Sure, Yes. I mean, would we be in here and you're gonna let who take the shot pool or wiggling inside awakens. Take that shot. Here's the deal. I'd rather get it over with somebody. But you get a shot off.

As soon as he saw Fox, he ran a tree and he began to smack his lips. Just at Fox had done before to bear with fish. delicious apples. What tastes so good? Asked Fox. Raccoon responded by throwing a fresh juicy apple right down to Fox. Fox looked at the apple and took a bite out of it. Delicious, sweet juicy, said Fox when he finished the last mouthful. Where did you get it? Raccoon told Fox how to find the apple tree. He must follow the trail along the river down the pine bluff that he must climb the bluff and run towards the setting sun until he came to an open field. In the center of that field stood a great apple tree. And it was filled with juic- yellow apples, but raccoon. You can climb the tree and pick your own apples. How can I get them off? The branches complained Fox. Oh, that's easy. Said Raccoon. Just back off to bow shots from the tree. And then lower your head like this. Run hard and but the tree with your head. You have such a big head. It will shake the tree so hard that all of the apples will follow at once. Do as I. Tell You and you will have all the apples you want. For a long time.

Thank you little gold finches, but I don't have time for your now. I'm going to shake this. Apple Tree. Already in his mind, he began to see the apples falling like pine needles and feel the earth shake under his feet. Fox did just as raccoon told him one aero flight. He backed off, and then another, and then he closed his eyes, lowered his head, and ran swiftly over the thick grass, faster and faster, his four paws came as he kicked up dust and gravel and small stones. The tree grew larger and larger as he came up to it. He struck the tree as hard as he ever could with his great big huge head. And then. Thought. No apple spell.

Tell people what that means. Well. It means looking beyond just the beauty of the flowers and learning about how they fit into the environment. And what their importance is to insects or birds or other animals? And sometimes to other plants as well. So, I like people to know how these plants work in the environment. What their what their roles are. You encourage us. I think in the tax in the preface of the book you encourage us when we're looking at Alzheimer's to almost act as a as a burder does when watching birds yeah. Yeah I do because it's not just checking off that you've seen a Canada Lily for example. Or you've seen. Have Sparrow. It's really observing what organism is doing. And there are still things to be learned about even our local wildflowers. That, have not been observed because people just think well, they're common. They've been here forever. Anything that is known about the must be must be written already. But yet if you just take the time and patience to sit there and watch, you could discover something new. And you'll discover something interesting. Fit Your your book in the title and Zeroes in on the northeast, but we should say where that is because it's not a small area, the northeast in terms of ripe. Thank you for doing that. I'm using the concept that was used in gleason and Cronquist, which is the manual for vascular plants of the Northeast and his concept of the north. East goes from southern Canada. Down along more or less than Mississippi River down to. Northern Missouri and across into Kentucky. And So it's a big area I've. Had People say oh I'm from Virginia I'm I'm sorry? I can't buy that book because it doesn't have any of my plants in. But these plans are awesome. Ranging and many of them are in the Midwest and in the. Northern part of the south as well. so for example one. That's in the book. I don't know how you managed to choose I. Mean because there's a lot of plants out there in that regional area that are bloom in the summer from early. To late. But you. You picked A. How many are there in the bucket their third year?

For many reasons, I'm sure all of your listeners are familiar with the milkweed monarch story, but it has many other interactions with other insects in particular. Right make it fascinating to me. So. Let's talk a little bit about that. The species is so it's a sleepiest. Dhia Syria which may sound surprising because it indicates that it comes from Syria. But in fact, that goes back to a mistake that was made back in the sixteen hundreds. When this plant was first brought back to European. To describe. And they it as being the same as a plant that had been discovered in Syria. And thus they lump it into that same species, which is opossums, Syriac Him And, when lineas realized that it was a different. Genus that it was far different from a possum. He'd put it into a different genus asleep, but by the rules of botanical nomenclature he had to keep the the second part of the name, the specific epithet.
