How I Built Resilience with Chef Kyle Connaughton of SingleThread
"We're GONNA hear from Kyle cotton. The owner of single thread farms in Healdsburg. California single thread has been named one of the fifty greatest restaurants in the world. And it's one of just fourteen Michelin three star restaurants in the United States but the past eighteen months have been challenging. I A flood nearly destroyed the farm that grows most of its fruits and vegetables and then last October a massive wildfire in Sonoma's county force the restaurant to shut down for a period. But Kyle says that nothing could have prepared him for the COVID. Nineteen pandemic. Kyle spoke to me from single thread where he's preparing donated meals during the day and selling take-out meals at night kyle. A lot of people don't understand that restaurants in good times operate on very thin margins like they need people to come in to be able to employ the people they employ tiny number of restaurants. Make a lot of money so even in good times. It's really tough. This is unprecedented right. You mean you've been shut down for weeks and weeks. What's your situation at single thread right now? I mean first of all to your point. Restaurant businesses. Incredibly tough margins are very very slim and it doesn't really matter if you're a really small small operator or you know a larger sort of like finding an operator immune disparate independent restaurants. It doesn't matter what you are. It's just even in good times really difficult. And so you know you put something like this year which is unprecedented and just unplanned for and it almost becomes an impossible situation. And that's really what we were faced with. Here is the fact that you can be in wine country. We kind of saw things coming from. You know the city at a little bit a fast speed but it was like upon us a little bit later one or two weeks later where the writing was really going to be on the wall so I some time to sort of think and react at the same time. We have eighty people on our team between the farm and the restaurant and the and the ad men and Have a great responsibility to your team and tear gas. Many of WHOM ARE PLANNING FOR WEEKS MONTHS. You know out to come and get into contact with them so it's a giant giant shifts. The what we you know decided to do next so once it was clear that you would not be open for business You basically kind of reconstituted some of your staff and went back into the kitchen and tell me what you're doing what's going on. You know first and foremost you know for us. It's about hospitality and we just want Cook and take care of before it's it's not so much even about the artistry of Ob do it's about a sense of wanting of deep sense of possibility wanting to take care of people so you know when times like this when it sort of apparent that you're not gonna be able to take care of your guests in the way that you normally do you. You look for other ways that you can. You can take care of people and because of the fires And because of The know the huge turmoil that's created wine country. We had an amazing organization called cinema family meal that was literally born out of the sort of Malay of the fires and all of us trying to get food to those who need it. You know. We've got a farm full of produce. I've got a restaurant full of food. You know. Got A team. That just wants to you. Know to Cook You know how about this idea? Start reaching out to friends of the restaurant. Wineries and investors and great guests that we have and see if if they can start funding Savannah meal and we'll start preparing food and I'll put everyone work We'll start cooking and then we started the takeout at night in those meals and looking for you know for families here at you know at home who could pay for you know a really nice meal that we put together still at a reasonable price and then allow them to make donations as well to what we do during the day Which is you know. A few hundred donation meals a day that are getting distributed to seniors out of work agricultural workers out of work. Hospitality Workers The women's shelter and so our days are spent doing the donation meals and our nights or doing the takeaway guys are doing. I think you're like two hundred meals a day for people in Need in cinema county as you mentioned People in hospitals and old age homes. And you've got a bunch of questions coming in for you. This is Air Intel On facebook he asks. How did you pivot your business away from like tasting menus to take away so quickly and can take away a sustain your your business is that enough and I suspect the answer is no in also can locals. Local people afford the takeaway. Many you know I saw I mean just depit I mean. I think we've got a lot of creative chefs here. We've got a lot of great products and we started cooking the way that we like to cook in the way that we liked eat. You know ourselves and you know the ultimately no the business cannot sustain on you know takeaway but between that and you know everything that we're doing where we're we're sort of getting by and has amazing partner in Tony Greenberg who's just working

Growing Weed in the Garden with Johanna Silver
"Joanna. Silver is a gardener. Writer and editor formerly the Gordon Editor at Sunset magazine. She is a regular contributor to Martha Stewart Living. Better homes and gardens and the San Francisco Chronicle the author of the old dry garden on the garden and legacy of famed California plants woman. Ruth Bancroft this week. Joanna joins us to talk about her newest book growing weed in the garden. A no fuss seed to stash guide to outdoor cannabis cultivation out now from Abrahams press cannabis in California has been legal for medical use since nineteen ninety-six and in November of Two Thousand Sixteen California. Voters approved the adults use of Marijuana Act to legalize the recreational use of cannabis the use sale and possession of cannabis over a certain level of THC remains illegal under federal US law that said according to a recent report on NPR thirty three US states currently allow for some form of sale and consumption of marijuana and of those more than twenty states have designated the cannabis industry as essential during the corona virus outbreak from her shelter in place with her young family in Berkeley California. Joanna joins us today to shine a brighter light on the often confusing. Growing we'd as Gardiner's welcome Joanna. Thank you so nice to be here back with you. The last time we spoke we were speaking primarily about your first book the Bold Dry Garden and this new book is something of a An adventurous kind of Tangent. Or like offshoot from your original. Garden writing work. I want to start though with your current relationship to plants and the garden world both personal and Professional Joanna. What do you do everyday tell listeners? More about who you are and what you're up to. It is so nice to be talking to you again even just anticipating the conversation that I would be having with. You got me just like thinking about life and anyway thank you. Just thank you for having me. Thank you for making all the room to talk to people about about exactly this. Their relationship to plants I am home now as you know. All non-essential workers are and I am doing the very essential work of raising my son who turns three in July and In a non pandemic situation spends most of his day in a share So we gardened some But it was more like gardening light and now that we're home together. I am gardening heavy and doing with him I salt. I was already going to have a vegetable garden this year. I was already scaling back on the. We'd I'm only really growing at this year to continue to write about it It's a it's a really fun plant to grow et Cetera et CETERA. But I really have this urge to grow fruits and vegetables with my son and so even though that was already going to happen I dug up to maybe like eight by eight feet by thirty inch. Beds right in the middle of our meadow grass to with him to create more space. So as I talked to you he's asleep. There's dirt all over my hands and I'm feeling really really connected to the hard honest Labor of garden creation and it feels so good so good and you. You touched on a couple of things already right there. One being the fact that many of us are home as quote unquote non essential and yet in this moment so many people have turned back to activities and connections that are so essential like our own attachment and connection to how you survive how we make our out. We make our lives not just livings. And that is in raising our families and cultivating art pieces of land. So okay I'M GONNA I'M GONNA have a go back just a little bit before we dig into the structure of the book in in some of these levels on which you got intrigued. Many listeners will remember the bull dry garden. But just for those who. Don't give us a little background on you. Where where were the people? And the places and the plants that grew into a person who would wanna be a person that wrote about gardens and gardening with her son as a matter of both principle and practicality so I got my start farming in college after traveling so really interested in food and food security. I had a very meandering path and ended up in the editorial Test Garden at Sunset Magazine. Back in the Menlo Park days through to the Oakland and New Test Garden in Sonoma's county days and went from outdoors at the magazine to indoors. Writing and editing and timber press reached out to me looking for a bay area writer to write this book idea that they had about Ruth Bancroft S- Garden cactus in dry garden in Walnut Creek California and I pitched myself because I was young and ambitious and so I wrote a book about. Ruth's life and Roots Gardens. She just passed away actually also twenty early twenty eighteen late twenty seventeen at the age of one hundred nine And so just a couple of years before that. I wrote this book about her life and her garden. I think the fun one of the fun things for me as a gardener and garden communicator journalist person is seeing so many come back to gardening and recognize it as this essential thing that it is and that you and I and kind of die. Hard gardeners have has always known. And we've been advocating for now. You also indicated in this first question this sort of interesting Almost conflicted feeling about growing weed. And I think it's a perfect segue into the conversation for us on this on this program. People have been telling me that I should do an episode on weed for the longest time. Because as you note in your introduction to the book it's one of the largest crops in California and many many people are interested in it and it has this deep historical ritualistic medicinal blige intimate like wait and Gravitas to it but that is so blurred by the the other baggage that comes with it that I have stayed away from it until now because I was so compelled by yearbook and the way that you handled that year and maybe it was a little bit more of researching documenting and writing about this project. You took on as a as an assignment not necessarily a personal passion but an assignment and So we really kind of want to get into that the I just WanNa say by the way that your documentation of life at home with your To almost three-year-old Garden intern as you call him on. Instagram has been in total pleasure to watch in. Its true sort of honesty. Raw dirty fingered honesty. Thank you. It's been. It's been a massive creative outlet for me. Yeah Yeah Okay so. Tell us about this book. Why this book how did it happen? What made you decide to take on writing a book about growing weed in twenty seventeen? I had a baby and I was headed back to work You know six ish months later back to Sunset Magazine Garden editor where I thought I'd have the job for the rest of my life Kathy Brazil before me held the position for forty years and I was all set to go back. It was the week before. Maternity leave was over and the place was bought by private equity in lost my job I felt desperate to keep writing and working and reached out to everyone. I've ever written for asking for assignments Just to keep going to feel some forward momentum and a former editor in chief of the magazine. Kitty Morgan Worked at the Chronicle San Francisco Chronicle and I reached out to her until I wanted to write for her you know. The chronicle does garden design edible gardening whatever and She said you have a new baby. I bet you don't have time to do lunch But I may be called her bluff and I was like I totally have time to do lunch and met her for lunch and she. It was right before recreational use went legal and including recreational growing in California. And she was like I have this whole other idea for you. I want you to grow wheat in your backyard and documented as a gardener. I think at that time everyone like it was coming but it still felt even more taboo than it does now. We were all sort of figuring out how to talk about how he felt about cannabis being something that we can talk about and And so I told her I didn't know where to get seeds. And she said emphatically. That's your opening line and it was supposed to be for this part the separate website run by the Co Chronicle called Green State Which has since been folded into the magazine or into the newspaper and it actually got got lost its funding for a while but kitty was so dedicated to me that they ran the series in the food and wine section on Sundays and I worked through this ten part series for them on growing lead in my backyard as a gardener starting from knowing nothing to having a big crash course in the plant yet everything about the naming and needing to forge new contacts. I had I was starting from zero other than my years of experience being garden writer And a gardener no for sunset.

"I couldn't care less. If you have an updated resume most working folks, don't just send me a quick Email. If you think you'd fit the park Lawrence at north bay, biz dot com, Email me at Lawrence at north bay, biz dot com. Good good. And their families across the nation. But this is the kind of thing that right now, we can only do in our hometown. But so important, and I'm sure we'll become a model as you're able to expand and send it out and actually in California, they passed a law earlier this year that says excuse me that required. Well, they actually as legislation often does they have to laws. One says that it is required learning. Sex trafficking, human trafficking, in in California schools, and one makes it more of a suggested curriculum. And so we are in a at state capital really trying to focus more on that shift to requiring it instead of it making it. You know, something that you choose to not do right, right? I'm talking with rainy how she's the executive director for the Polly Klaas foundation. Let's talk a little bit about some of these main programs. Maybe we'll start with legislation. How are you working to help kids be safe via legislation? Thank you. So the AB twelve twenty seven that. I just mentioned is one of the ways, and you know, the wheels of government move very slowly in the way that things are right now, especially in Washington DC. They're pretty jammed up because there's a lot of in fighting going on were all witnessing it just slows everything down. But we are committed to working with lawmakers when they have a Bill that they're going to bring to the Florida vote on they actually will call on us to review the language and to see if there's any holes that might need to be filled more. That it's really a bulletproof type Bill and Diane Feinstein's office reached out to us last year, Jenny Thompson, she's a director of legislation and education that former FBI agent. Is the one that really reviews that closely, and she really was the one who so many years ago helped to get the amber alert implemented in all fifty states. I mean, that's a that's huge. Yeah. Yeah. So it just takes time. And sometimes you can go and meet with legislators, and you know, they have so much on their plates, and you know, that nothing's going to happen today. But you just keep going back and going back and going back eventually termination shore. Yeah. And you see that Bill like the AB twelve twenty seven come through. That says that this will be required the human trafficking curriculum. And so then, you know, then you celebrate. And then you go back to the next thing that needs to happen. Yeah. Yeah. Before we talk a little bit about that education. Because I think there's more to talk about on that topic. The amber alerts we've all had these pop up on our phone or hurt the ambulance come out over the airwaves. Saves or seen them on social media. They pop up now to this how instrumental and important is this kind of alert in helping to save a missing child. It's it's incredibly instrumental. I mean, I think that first of all we we do get calls from families who want an amber alert on a missing child. But the criteria is so stringent it has to be very specific. So it has to be that you know, that they were taken in a car. So you can basically described the car or the person that they are with there has to be enough information to share with the public. So that they know what to look for. And so not every missing child really meets that criteria. But for the hundreds of children who have been rescued this way. They would not have been found that rapidly anyways and time is of the essence. Oh, yeah. You know, when a child gets taken at the first twenty four hours is incredibly important. I mean, the first three hours are incredibly important. Yeah. Yeah. So the amber alerts, but let's also talk about this sex trafficking, educations, that may be one thing that people don't realize happens to children that children are groomed or they're taken or they're lured away and they end up being basically, who's traffic sex slaves awful. Yeah. And it does happen right here in sonoma's county. And basically it happens to children who are probably more marginalized doesn't mean it can't happen to an average. You know? Class family, but foster children are targeted. Like, I said children that are marginalized. Maybe they're home alone a lot or they're just not fitting in socially it happens online where there's that kind of fishing going on from adult predators that are looking for those keywords. I hate my mom. I can't wait to get out of here. You know and just being very brazen. I mean, they'll groom them for months at a time. And then once that child is ready to leave the home, they will even just send a taxi cab to their school. And in fact, right here in Snowmass county. There is a case where this trafficker had groomed. Two girls and from two different schools, and I guess he was a cheap trafficker because he had the taxi up one girl at one school and then drive to the other school to get the other girl and. They started talking in the back of the cab. And they realize that you know, they'd been duped and as soon as it pulled up into the motel parking lot. They ran straight into the manager's office. Oh my God. And had he only picked up one of the girls at a time. He may have actually gotten away with it. But that's how brazen they can be or we've had traffickers. You know, tell young girls that they're beautiful, and they're gonna be models, and send them us tickets to go to LA, you know, they show up there, and they have nothing and the first thing they do the trafficker does is take their phone away. And you have to remember what it's like to be, you know, fourteen or fifteen years old. And that brain is more worried about getting in trouble by their parents for what for doing something that they shouldn't have done then in asking for help. You know, it's just the teenage brain doesn't always think logically. Or maybe there is even a sense of denial when they show up there. Like this person told me they love me. They're gonna care for me. So I'm gonna trust them. And and go along with whatever they want me to do. And then it just all goes downhill from there, so terrify it really is. But but we can help stop it. Yeah. I always got to go. Exactly always gotta go back to that. Yeah. And this legislation hopefully will pass so that it becomes mandatory education to let teams. No, that's you know, what don't trust these people don't even they're not your friend now and in for parents parents need to be more nosy than they are. I mean, if your teenage child is angry at you because you want to know who they're talking to then, you know, what tough beans. We were our job as parents is not to be our children's friend. We want you know, we want our kids to love us and like us. But if they're like us all the time because we're not keeping them safe. Then that's not really the end game. Right. So be nosy. Let your kids be mad. You'll be okay. Yes. Okay. Let's talk about the numbers. How many children typically do you find any year? So our case load is about three hundred year on average and last year, we actually passed the milestone of helping defined over ten thousand children nationally. Yeah. It's it's really remarkable. We do our work fairly quietly. You don't see us on Nancy grace or TV stations where we're really frothing at the mouth and worked up about stuff. And we are culture is really to protect the families that we serve because there is a sense of sort of re exploiting those families by parading them around or asking them to give public testimonials for us. And we have stuck so true to that culture and feel really good about it. The downside is is that I think for the foundation that people don't realize the real impact that we have on these families because we we don't talk about it. With specific cases, even our social media safety program. We, you know, we don't ever use real names or anything like that. We don't use real picture as we talked about just about it. Right. So. Yeah. So I'm just so grateful that we get to come onto the radio and talk about it. Because if we don't no one will really understand where we are. And what we're doing? So how do you get contacted? If there is a child who is in.

It follows a bitter battle that's left deep divides across the aisle and country ABC's Jonathan Karl says that could play out next in next month's midterm election. The polling that we have seen before and after this confirmation battle you've seen a clear shift. Republicans are now more intensely paying attention and enthusiastic about the midterm elections. The gap has narrowed in several key races especially Senate races. There's no question that at least right now one month out the momentum has shifted back towards the Republicans. That said they they still face it very much an uphill battle and keeping control of the house. Now that cavenaugh has taken the oath and the supreme court. What are some of the cases that the justices may take off the supreme court has about forty open cases, currently some of those of already been heard. But looking ahead. There are some key cases already on tap. One of the most watched will likely be gamble v. United States a case concerning. Double jeopardy, and whether the court should do away with these separate sovereigns exception that means someone could be tried for the same crime in different sovereigns, for example, being tried for the same crime in federal court and separately in state court.

"Our view is you have an experience set of yours in many cases, more than one. We do a lot of co mentoring. Up to and including we'll do like what we call advisory panels. So an existing business that wants to sorta have this. Sitting advisory panel to check on every maybe quarter or something like this. So. But if it's real challenging and needs a real hands on somebody who perhaps is going to do some of the work, then yes, we've got some resources we can refer people to. But at that point. You're leaving the volunteer freeze. You're going into an engagement with professional that you might hire to do tax planning estate planning business. Formation legal stuff. Right. How did you get involved with score? Well, it was a retiree moved to beautiful cinema county and tried golf every day. And that drove me nuts.

And so between being a big brother here in in town with with my little this is my other purpose in life is to give back over forty years of experience in in corporate banking, and I've seen a lot of different types of businesses. And I've seen what made him successful. And in some cases, what got them into trouble. So it's my way of giving back and helping my community which I've absolutely fallen in love with love Sonoma County, what are some success stories or a success story that really sticks out in your mind. Gosh. I'm putting you on this. Well, the one that comes to mind, I guess where I'm a little concerned is, you know, whether or not we have privileges. But I'll go ahead and say it anyway. Hip chicks is probably one of our one of our chapters. Yes, they really are. And they spoke at one of our annual lunch meetings and. Just terrific terrific women and successful, and it's fun to to take a little credit. Not me personally, Richard Adler. I think was their mentor. But anyway, yeah, that's one of the more notables things that we like to brag about that's awesome. A great business hearings Noma county that is really just blossomed him. Blue crown definitely see them, everywhere and great product. Track. Well, it's very exciting to be able to know that this kind of resources here that a lot of it is either no cost or very low cost. So you can't get the kind of help that you need especially for businesses. You are thinking, maybe it's your first time don't have any background in business. And it's terrifying to you. They will help you at score make easier with bite size pieces, understandable, if acid that you can work it into white your own plan. Yes. And just to clarify, Michelle. The only thing that cost are the workshops those these are very very nominal. But the one on one mentoring with with with a seasoned business person. Those are all free, and how do you request a mentor go through the website. Okay. There is a Sikh mentor or ask for mentor. He's the follow out. And then our signers will reach out to you. Get a little more information and then pick between our twenty eight. Yes, we're at twenty eight now twenty eight members to see where there's a good fit. And that frequently is only we like to call it triage because once the assigned mentor goes out, he or she may learn more about that that will then suggests that he get somebody else to partner with him or her or reach out to our national thirteen thousand volunteers and so anyway works well.

Guard says conditions are likely to get worse as rivers continue to rise reports at twenty four inches of rain in Wilmington today would potentially fifteen inches more. The storm is moving very slow went from two to three almost stagnant. Yesterday. Eight miles an hour. That's still slow people who live along one of those rivers are being told to get out. Now, I'm inside what is the mandatory evacuation zone. Officials here in Fayetteville want people in this neighborhood out of their homes by three PM before the Cape. Fear. River begins to run its banks and into the neighborhoods Fayetteville mayor MICH Kovin telling ABC news, we are expecting that rivers will rise to levels that we haven't seen during the last fifty or seventy five years now the river has already reached its flood stage, but could rise another twenty five feet in the coming. Days. There's already a lot of standing water in front of homes and on the roads.

Former whitewater, independent counsel, Ken Starr says he isn't surprised is under tremendous pressure. And had I been his counsel. I would say Paul we gave it our best shot at Alexandria star on ABC's this week. You're listening to ABC news. Issues events and interviews with people who makes Inova county great. This is sonoma's county focus. Good morning and welcome to cinema county, focus. My name is Michelle Marquis and on the line. With me is Ken Keyes. He is the owner of alternative building products. Thank you for joining us this morning. Thanks for having me. So we have been able to sort of look online at alternative building products dot com. And there is a product that you're using that is very interesting, especially for those who are in the process or thinking about rebuilding after the fires is called grey block. Can you tell us what is gray block? Well, it's an insulated concrete composite form block, and it's made out of a recycled poly styrene. Mixed with cement and binders creating the form block. So you basically stacked the block up creates a vertical and horizontal grid pattern twelve inches on center. You put your rebar in their reinforcing steel. And so what with concrete, and that's true becomes your structural aspect of your building. So that sounds like it's pretty dang strong. If it's got all those different layers. Well, it's actually seven hundred percent stronger than conventional with the call stick frame as you know, like to by six two by four construction for seismic resistance and wind loads. Wow. So not only is it wind resistant, but also, and if we have a big shaker, it's gonna be still pretty solid. Yeah. It actually outperforms a solid concrete wall. They did a point earthquake simulation and you had no structural damage whatsoever. And the actual formed concrete wall failed. Wow. That's amazing. Okay. Because they know that going into this conversation. I was thinking, you know, our main focus is going to be about fire resistance. But it's good to know that other things that happened in the north bay here include earthquakes, and that this is a good material for that as well. Let's talk about let's talk about the installation, then how how does it perform well because of the styrofoam then the way the design of the block the outside wall thickness of the walk is thicker than out of the inside. So your thermal conditions, whether it be heat or cold outside. Don't get a chance to transfer into the inside of the building only reaches about the halfway point before the day cycles. And and then the inside actually access the thermal mass retaining your air conditioning or heating depending on the time of the season. And then it releases it back into the room. So you're acquitted doesn't cycles often. Therefore, you're saving energy. Wow. Wow. That's great. And let's also then station wise, it's equivalent about our forty wall. If you wanna look at a lot of people know that value. Okay. The are forty also then let's talk about in terms of fire resistance. This is one main concern, especially people who are building in. What is traditionally considered a fire hazard area? Yes. It's you know, we tested it that with a flame on it at four thousand agrees and it went for over four hours, and they just shut the pest down. So we don't even know how long it would have gone, but four thousand degrees is significant that's a direct blow torch on it. And so and we've had experience in other areas of wildland fires going through the neighborhood. And it's been the only building standing. Now, we know that when fires come through. Sometimes it's not the actual flames. Licking the side of a building. That's going to set it on fire could be the heat generated inside of the building. How how does this really? Yeah. That's where this really shines because of the installation and thermal characteristics of the block, it resist that he transfers. So you don't get the spontaneous combustion affect the high temperatures inside the structure. That's the greatest value this house for resisting these neighborhood fires. If you wanna call. Yeah. Yeah. What about other things that you worry about with building materials like paths? Basically this because of the makeup of the block it does not attract a pets were insect pests for nesting in the material migrating through it. It's resistant to virtually approve determined and other insects, and it doesn't support mold growth. So it's it's pretty unique. Wow. So there's lots of reasons to choose this. What about aesthetically? What does it look like can you make a home loan very pleasing with it? Yeah. I mean during the rough construction it just sorta looks like concrete blocks stacked up that it lends itself to stucco or any other masonry type veneers and so forth. And once that's all done in the interior, the plaster to drywall, you don't even know what it's made out of other than you do recognize the thick walls are usually ten inches thick, and it does using this in place of the normal sort of stick walls. Does that cost a lot more? We're finding now with especially in seismic areas. Like, you're you're in that of other time, you were to build for instance, out of stick frame and put the outside shear-wall wall up. That's necessary any of the Simpson strong, walls, and so forth. This actually can be less expensive. It's certainly equivalent to two by six construction was let's say a stucco exterior. And what about noise, it seems like maybe a thicker wall would help with here blocking the noise from outside. You're correct. It's it's quite a quiet. I've built houses actually on a runway of. What do I wanna say pass people complaining of noise and so forth. And after we built it was almost couldn't hear about all it's actually weird to build with 'cause you can be on one side of the wall have a co worker on the other side, and you can't talk to them without using radio..

All of, the Sunday, messages, or if you prefer you can listen to audio recordings, and, have podcast delivered and you can really follow the sequence so if you dropping. In for the first time now in August I want to let you know that we've been building up to. This spiritual, mind, treatment so, we've, covered, a, lot of territory. To get to this place where we can. Talk about this topic spiritual mind treatments I, want to take it why One word at a. Time Spiritual for example Spiritual describes an. Atmosphere of reverence that's. What it is it's the feeling you get after you've practiced whatever it is you practice. In your religion so if your religion is meditating out in nature or if it's going to mass or if it's, feeding the hungry, whatever it is they're resulting feeling of reverence and. Unity and connection that. Is spirituality mind the second word, in the phrase mine describes something that happens inside your own being in the realm of thought with the emphasis, on spiritual thought not just any old. Thought spiritual thought you might say the highest thought that you're capable of the thought that comes out of that atmosphere of. Unity. And connection. Okay, then treatment well that's, a. Good word How you treat something well that means how. You. Handle it. How, you deal with it I was. Talking to a friend of mine recently and he discovered his, toy chest from his childhood it had been stored, in a barn or an adequate somewhere and it had become old grimy and and doll and he's told me I'm going to treat it. With this, product that removes the grind without destroying the finish or, or anything like that. You, see it's going to restore the, would to its original beauty Because you know the grain and the color and the would we're still there but it was under this layer of dirt and the. Grime and, the dirt that wasn't the truth of the toy chest The truth. Of, the toy chest with beautiful handmade gorgeous piece of wood from a previous time and that truth had, to be brought out again with the treatment and after he treated it it. Came to life again that's ziprecrui born again See that's what treatment means that means I'm gonna deal with. Something I'm going to deal with it using a specific method. To achieve a. Specific outcome result so when we say spiritual mind treatment we mean something quite similar we're going to deal with, something using our spiritual FOX for a specific outcome we want to.

A lot of times the. Teenagers are putting that, together okay which is, really smart last year they. Had somebody teaching people how to make bracelets and that so I think that's fine the. Kids love that especially the younger, ones, there's not much for kids the gaming truck. Might be a little too sophisticated. For three to five year olds show there's other things. That, are they oh. I. Would like to play, with the balloons I would like to do that so there's going to be something there for? Them to okay that's catered everybody yeah and that gaming track this is amazing So it's you bring up. An actual truck gets get to come in it's got. All, these video monitors. Right. And they go so.

"A better look so I just starting now had a feeling until they had. Me admitted right away but, someone outer drive me and my mom was with the, client, my sister. Was out of big obey with her family and horrible day. Yeah My brothers were home. So I had my brother take me both of them and they. Admitted me right away but they wanna let my brothers then for some. Reason An emergency doctor came and saw. Me and he was like eager to tell me what was going on without biopsy being, done and so he told me that I would need A shop place. You told me I needed to be on steroids And then he told me that I would probably have to live out the rest of my couple of. Months left of life in the hospital on steroids Without ever doing a biopsy Emergency room doctor and he he told me my prognosis was wonder, two months and? Asked him what is that what does that mean I. Didn't really know what the, prognosis was, I wasn't never, pulled the prognosis with? Mike called cancer 'cause they got all of it yeah, and so. He told me you know says was like what does that mean and he, like held my hand and he was like it needs you have, one to two? Months left to live And. No. One was there with me, it was, just him and, me and he told? Me I was going to basically and it was hard, to hear. That and it kind of traumatize me for ever And I would just I add to that without getting. Completely off track but. Yeah she was in the, room by yourself I wasn't there yet her sister wasn't there. He had brothers were out in the waiting. Room and he had nobody had, done a biopsy there was a scam there were, looking at saying you're calling cancer metastasized and you've got one or two months this Thankfully was, incorrect the oncologist came in and said. Don't listen to that. I don't know why. He told you that the neurosurgeon said don't listen to that I don't know why he told. You that we haven't. Even gone in yet to, see what it is so it was a traumatic experience for. Her How long did you have to to sort of sit with that information before. Other people came in it wasn't too long Probably like five minutes at the most but it doesn't? Ever leave your brain Wow wow but. Then after that I was admitted into room finally had family with me layer the doctors came. To see me in. That was like super upset and crying in the lake we're comforting me in they're trying to figure out why was freaking out so bad other than just being diagnosed with brain cancer or possibly brain cancer because they can't even tell you, that without a biopsy taking just assume And so I had a different long colleges come in, he was. On, call. Colleges in his like you don't listen to any, of that there's no prognosis until. There's a biopsy so they all helped me out cheered me up yeah so from there we. Got my surgery scheduled. For biopsy and we were hoping to be able to get it removed and so I think my surgery was about just a couple of weeks out on July six admitted on June eighteenth I think And so I was on steroids until then and then after my surgery we found out that it was. Non operable But she was. Able to place a shot in to help. The swelling go down and, then I didn't need steroids anymore after that And so. That was nice at least we found, out that it was glioma which is, a slow growing tumor in so that's other good news if you're going to have a tumor you want it to be. Slow growing Yeah So then after, that Was prescribed, six weeks of, radiation which I completed and then six rounds of chemo, which I just completed and.
