How to Schedule Your Time More Effectively
"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about how to schedule your time more effectively. So I don't have tons of tips on this one. I know air probably does more than me but I'm GonNa give you the two tips that I do and then the rest is all eric. The first is I have assistant that helps me a law you can always hire. A virtual assistant, there's a lot of sites offer that, but that's one way. The other thing that I do is a checklist everything that needed accomplish during that day. Literally I have a checklist for each and every single day and I accomplish it. You don't go to sleep unless you convert your sick you better still combat ship before you go to see and you'll figure out how to get it done and then sometimes like. I want that extra time on. Monday to do x Y and Z, or want to take that vacation while if I had a checklist the next two weeks, which do because they start creating bands. Okay. If I want that vacation that time off I need to go and complete. Things. All those checklists of coming weeks. If we're GONNA, take that time off, and that's my way of just getting the most out of my time. The funny thing is even when you take the time off, you still have a new checklist. So we're. On vacation onboard. My wife loves sending places I and stuff like that, and I don't care for the sending places some psycho. Yeah you go on the beach and do what everyone and I'M GONNA. Go critic neutral rethink more work than. So similar I used to have a really long list as an early my career really long list of things I. Remember watching this video is like you know a lot of people have a lot of these TD's right STD's can mean different things but in this case is has shit to do so you don't WanNa do that 'cause the problem is if you do that, you don't have any priorities and so what I learned over the years this is very similar to kneel as well. I, have a checklist right in fact now have physical. A physical checklist. Now, where I write things usually I try to keep it to three main things i. get those things done like it's a good day. So that's up what I do and in front of me I, have my top goal for the year and I tried to center everything I do around those my checklist based on those. So I don't try to do all these other things because otherwise I'm like I really work on too many things and if I try to add all these, here's this other. Here's is like I'm always bringing. Neil are talking about these ideas all the time Oh what do you think about this? What do you think about this but that's too much. You have to be able to focus otherwise it gets crazy. So that's one piece I do definitely recommend in EA I actually use a service called belay solutions recommended by our mutual friend said I got this great year by the way most as don't work well with me I think difficult to work with but I remember that time we interviewed a all prisons. Amazing. You should hire them I'm like, no, thank you too expensive. Do you remember that? As like two years ago you're like I read this EA. They're awesome at. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I, was like one thank you. Two hundred grand super expensive and like no thank you. Don't, but it doesn't have to cost a lot of money to do the stuff that Eric and I are talking about even with the h you can get someone to help you out for like I. Kid you not like a few hundred bucks a month virtually. So there's couple services there's one called Shepherd support, shepherd, DOT com. So type in that and you can get they actually have a really. Good vetting process for Filipino, Vase and some people might complain about that. But there are some really good ones bolaise a little more expensive I think it goes up to forty or fifty bucks an hour but my ea comes military background. So she could take the heat when I bring the heat boom boom boom boom and she's like, yeah, give me more give me more. She gets stronger from it. Unlike, yes, exactly what I need. So you gotta think about your personality, they will help block time off for you. I think I still use my scheduling links. So you schedule once I don't know if you do this the old but I, think there's a season for things right there seasons where you try to keep your calendar completely empty and their seasons words like scheduled like crazy. So for me right? Now a Mondays, all my one on ones. All of I have themes, all ones, autism meetings those are Monday Tuesdays and Wednesdays are more free for Friday's like this. I have no meetings. The only meetings I do are what Neil like this fighters are all for strategic thinking time blocked out. So I can I have the space to think about things Neil how do you do you do know meetings right? Eddie meetings but not that many period like I just cut back on the meetings altogether and I realized like meetings are inefficient. Yeah. I just call I need something. Yeah. I'll be the first to say, yes, he does that the other thing too is instead of doing like forty five minute meetings thirty minute means cut it to fifteen minutes US county or whatever make default your fifteen minutes 'cause usually you'll find that you can fill that time quickly you drag it out to thirty and it's just like people start it's called
Bachelorette Fans Upset By Clare Crawley Poster
"Some Bachelorette fans are confused and a little pissed off to be honest. We know the show likes to play with our hearts but the poster for the new season is messing with our heads. It features bachelorette Clare Crawley. Some fans were upset pointing that it looks like the poster for the graduate. You guys remember that movie it's a movie about an older woman seducing younger man. Well, this is pissing people off because Clare's, of course, the oldest Bachelorette today at the age of thirty nine years old and they're saying what the hell like, why are you making her look like she's just this old woman she's thirty nine. Right I mean, I have to say when I saw the poster I live for a Pantsuit I thought she looked strong I thought she looked beautiful I thought she looked like a woman that was going after what she wanted felt like it was her time you know obviously doing seasons previously and just not finding her match so I get how people can. Be upset but you also could just be upset right I. Just don't think it was necessarily negative I don't think he's trying to I. Don't think he was trying to play on her age I think it was trying to kind of show an empowered woman that's like this is my time I'm going after what I want exactly like what Mrs Robinson did. Not people who aren't complaining about. The movie and if you haven't, you should 'cause it's fabulous La. Also like how do you know that Claire Wasn't in on the joke like if I was the first game bachelor on ABC, I would try to make a tongue in cheek joke about it. My poster would maybe be derived from something of that nature. I just think that Latin sorry twitter is the Latin word for outrage and there's just people that want to start a fire and it doesn't make any sense.

Joe Biden leads President Trump in national poll
"His past week the Democratic National Convention took place this coming week Republican convention will be happening as well and with both of these happening, we are firmly into the general election. But what do the polls show about the state of the Presidential Race Joe Biden continues to maintain lead but that is narrowing and while Biden, has his supporters. Voters are really more united opposition against President trump for more on what all the polls are saying right now, we'll speak to Stephen Shepherd politics editor. At politico. We got a boatload of polling over the past few days leading into the two conventions here and but it shows is some slight tightening from earlier in the summer when Joe Biden was up routinely around ten or twelve points in the polls over president trump that now averages out just seven or eight points in a number of those polls tightening slightly one poll tightened a lot more. But that looks like more of an out wire a couple of polls actually showed Biden's lead. Widening those look a little bit like out lighters overall, it shows a slightly tighter raising. You're absolutely right about this being the kickoff really for the general election, we have the two party conventions. By the following week you first absentee ballots and a swing state North Carolina, go out to voters in the mail the week after the Republican convention. So we're talking about really the election is as we are going to know it in this sort of pinned era really being on our once we. Get through these conventions and it's GonNa be interesting to see because usually when we have a convention that party gets a bump and with the Democrats Convention being virtual and who knows how exactly how the Republican convention is GonNa play out are those bumps going to be comparable? Another thing that we're seeing is that or Joe Biden it's not necessarily hey, we support Joe. Biden. We Love Joe Biden. There's some of that but most of his vote is coming in as opposition to president trump. This is something that I think. We've looked at over the course of the past few months where you see a relative enthusiasm gap when you ask people how enthusiastic they are to don't folded ended it president trump's supporters and. Whether it's in parentheses or on social media are very active here his rallies or about him horror. So Biden, it is more about for his voters seems to be more about kicking out the incumbent president and NBC News Wall Street Journal poll out on Sunday Fifty, eight percent Biden supporters said there was more about opposing trump just thirty six percents that it was about voting for Biden for. Trump voters, seventy four percents they were voting for trump because they meant it as a vote for trump only twenty percent of trump voters they meant more as against Joe by. So you have this kind of asymmetry where go Biden's voters are enthusiastic about voting. They're just a disaster about voting against president trump not necessarily copilot and it'll be his challenge over the next couple of months to keep. Those voters in the fold one point I wanNA make on Convention bounces is Democrats as may recall or initially supposed to hold their convention in the middle of July five weeks ago. The idea was having an earlier convention would give them momentum through the summer carry through the Olympic Games would have been in the early part of this month would be ending right around now and that would set. Their nominee up well, even going into the Republican convention. In late August, obviously, they put back hoping that they could buy some time and still have an inverse invention with that didn't happen. We're stuck with these back to back virtual conventions and I think that's going to blunt both the virtual nature of the conventions, and also the timing factor Republican convention begins just four days after the Democrats conclude. Limit what kind of momentum each party I think can get out of this four-day infomercial that part looking to put on over the next couple of weeks. What kind of bump did the naming of Kama Harris as the running mate for Joe Biden? What kind of bump did that provide I know and the first forty eight hours they got forty, eight, million dollars. So the fundraising part of it was kind of their but polls, what were they saying about it? Well we see only a few polls conducted after Joe Biden named his running mate and they're pretty consistent with the polls that were conducted right before earlier last week. So I don't know that it changed the race a lot but what we saw is overall voters telling pollsters that they approve of the choice Joe Biden made arguably a safe choice choosing an experienced candidate who has exposure on the national stage voters got to know her during her presidential campaign in twenty nineteen CBS News of a Washington. Post. CNN. SRS sound maturities practices choice to that's not uncommon majorities approved of John. McCain's choice of Sarah Palin in two thousand eight in the first days. Obviously. Whereas well with voters over the closing couple of months of that campaign. So it's not unusual for there to be enthusiasm around the right after it's made the Salads or Democrats and for Kamo houses to keep that going the her momentum going through the convention this week, and obviously the other key moment for her and for Vice President Mike Pence Day or debate in early October
Postmaster General defends changes made to USPS during Senate committee hearing
"Friday, recently appointed Postmaster General Lewis to Joy was grilled by the Homeland Security Committee about his sweeping cutbacks that intentionally or not fulfilled Trump's vision. But as Republicans on the committee were quick to observe, he didn't start the fire. From what I've heard so far today. Apparently the post office never had any issues. There was never any delays. There was never any male that was late. There were never any financial problems. There was never any challenge the mail in voting until 65 days ago when you arrived, and then apparently all chaos has broken out in the post office fair point Senator James Lankford, but what he and his GOP colleagues failed to point out. Was that it was their party's own policies that intentionally or not crippled the Postal Service to begin with, And according to New Republic staff writer Alex Shepherd. When journalists start talking about the public sector, they tend to be sucked into a similar partisan ideological narrative. Yeah, the postal Service exists is a kind of symbol of good government, and it's one that has been surprisingly resilient, Tio Republican attacks, particularly ones aimed at privatizing various public sector services. But that you know hasn't dimmed their enthusiasm for making widespread demands for greater efficiency that, in fact lower efficiency. These have certainly increased over the last 15 years, but it feels like we've only started paying attention to them over the last week or so. No. You just said lead to greater efficiency first by creating lower efficiency, and we'll get to that in a moment, But first we should observe that this process goes back decades. Along with the privatization, dreams for schools, colleges, social security, prisons, even parts of the military. But you write that the particular image we have of the post office today. Really has its origins in 2006. How so? Yeah, In 2006 Congress passed the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act, known as Pica. On that required us B s to make a number of changes. The most substantial was that it required them to fully fund all of their pensions. 75 years in advance, which created a $72 billion hole and the operating budget immediately. No other institution is required to do this, and it immediately turned a profitable arm of the federal government into an unprofitable one. Now the timing of that was interesting because That was a year in which the USPS was, as it had been for several years in the black. It was also the year that Facebook opened up, Tio everyone on and you start to see large standing changes in the way that People communicate. That also has provided a hit to the Postal Service's budget, but not as substantial as this one about pensions. Now, over the past couple of months we've observed trumps over meddling into the post office. In the person of his new postmaster General Lewis to joy, he isn't Underqualified Trump mega donor with financial ties to Postal service competitors. And next thing you know, he was cutting overtime for workers in the middle of a pandemic in advance of an election and had removed mail sorting machines from post offices nationwide. Which raised media eyebrows, but not exactly at first at least alarm. Until about a week ago, when Trump blurted out his sabotage scheme on Fox business. These Ah ha! Journalistic moments about public sector institutions follow a pattern yet in the case of U. S. P s There are a few things happening where you know at the same time Lewis to Joy is fulfilling this longstanding conservative project of hobbling USPS of creating space in which its competitors can thrive. He is also doing so at a time where it will, almost certainly if not aid. The president's reelection campaign, then certainly bolster claims that he may make challenging the legitimacy of the election. The press is largely focused on the second one of those still, and the first part is, I think, still gone unnoticed. You send that the Republican strategy over the decades Has been to defund the post office, for example, by forcing them to fund their pension plan going out 75 years. In order to actually forced their service to deteriorate in order ultimately, to privatize the organization. What Louis to Joy has been doing since the spring. You know, is familiar to anyone who's covered the private equity industry in America in recent years, it's you look at an organization that's losing money. And then you strip resource is from it in the name of efficiency. And then, of course, it becomes less efficient and you're in this endless cycle of taking things away. But the larger project, I think is ideological as much as it is practical that conservatives don't like the fact that this is a government institution that works. That the USPS should be treated like a business that's put a giant target on its back. The Postal Service itself is a kind of American value. Saying that you know, we're all Americans, and we all should be connected together, No matter what that costs. The drive, Tio privatized that Not only would have dramatic consequences for people who rely on USPS, Teo get medication or keep in touch with loved ones, particularly incarcerated people. It also would be a betrayal of what I think is an ideal, which is that we should have a system that brings us all together. You believe that we've allowed a distorted picture. Of the public sector to form in the public's minds over decades and and that we've even internalized the Reagan doctrine. That big government is not the solution. But the problem. Drunk. The Kool Aid halfway Yeah, I think that the image of a postal worker sort of remains Newman from Seinfeld. You don't even have to lick the stamps. It's not to be So I'm hanging it up. You quit the post office kind of I'm still collecting checks. I'm just not delivering mail. Somebody who's you know, lazy. They take a three hour break. The post office itself is a drab and dreary place where you waited line for hours and then are told to go somewhere else. It's sort of the The M V next door. Part of the issue, I think is political and that Democrats have also internalized a lot of these ideas. But I think that there's also a sense that journalist walk into a post office and they see Not the connective tissue of this country. They see another, you know, failing organ of big government. One of the strange things about all this hand wringing about if the USPS can handle the election is that they just finished. You know, a substantial project, which is handling the United States Census. USPS does this kind of work all the time, and they've done it despite the fact that they've been, you know, hobbled by staffing cuts and demands Teo to run like a business when it's not a business And how do we get The narrative that you just provided. Back into the minds of the media. If, in fact we have drunk the Kool Aid. I think there's a really shyness about communicating values in media. That's not true. When it comes to sort of First Amendment issues. Members of the press will always you know, beat their chests when They're kicked out of White House briefing room or something, but you don't get that with other values. Instead, there's a real reliance on others. You need advocacy groups you need opposed to workers Union or Members of the Democratic Party. But there are a lot of cases where those voices aren't going to be forthcoming and that you need Teo look at institutions for what they provide beyond. Profit and efficiency. It's a public service and the American people, for the most part recognized as that. It's Congress that hasn't and if it does do that, then I think things will get a lot better. Alex. Thank you.

Sarah Jakes Roberts Talks Black Lives Matter, Voting, and Preaching During A Pandemic
"Roberts with the. Fresh. Face. Ma'am. Thank you so much for doing my on one masterclass. I wanted you to teach me out of Bray. Breeds how to be when he? When you're in your? I've seen with my own I girl no. Not How you. Down the whole house and rebuild us again. This is not at all I think but. My team was like. You're not. Asia is ask her about how can have hope At. least try. And then maybe she can teach you. How to how to pray to but the main thing I want to do is just connect with the tax you the other day and I was just like. This you. I. One before this life bound now. One. Man I don't know either hope is soon at least I get to see you today though. Yeah. Yeah I don't know. What do you say to the people? Are Feeling overwhelmed by the not knowingness of it. All right like there are people who have decisions to make economically. there are those among us I think as well, maybe not especially in our community, but I relate to those who are in our community, the most who are used to go onto the church house warning and can't they shouldn't be. y'all have been wise about bad or other shepherds. Car Them we have not been so wise. But what do you say the folks who are? In fear about not knowing. Yeah. Unknown Gary For us all whether we are in or not. Certainly heightened, you know the whole world isn't will state of annulling I think for me when I have those moments of uncertainty. It really down to knowing what I know for today riots I even the model prayer Jesus give us this day our daily bread, and sometimes we don't know what tomorrow's GonNa look like or even six months Armagh grow. But right now who Note that engrossing sometimes boils down to like what what about all I don't know. They're not gonna be able to Netflix. A roof over at hid in when we live in the moment and the pharmacists. Creativity and opportunities that help us to prepare better for tomorrow I. Think the thief that anxiety it blinds is so much from the possibilities of what exists in this small work while something that hasn't happened yet or may not happen at all. So as much as I can I try to make myself be president. One of the things I just thought about this is more shading question are meltdown. Here is my shady question but in addition to. The people may not know there are there are those among us Who they know it all in one thing that comes to mind Sarah like. I watch this clip so many times because I just can't believe it so Kenneth Kenneth, Copeland had this moment where I guess these rebuke. I grew up in charge like in a Lotta ways like peers, a baptist, a Catholic moms the Catholic. In I started going cold you charge when I was sixteen. So get it. We a lot of stuff in the church this man for a respiratory illness. Rebukes Corona virus by blowing right into my like this. Like spit flying everywhere and I just have to know like. Have you seen versus viruses D. Donald talking about. How to be in this I on and? I don't want to be in this. This is what I will say I think even down to people who are still having church, right? In your point my husband ahead of our campuses really made a decision to not. You know us what we know could be God's provision when we could use our wisdom in state and into really preserve those moments when we need God for when we need God and to activate the ability that we have to make wise decisions. However to your point, there have been a lot of pastors who felt they had a different unction from God's to. Do handle things differently and I think part of one of the things that I've really been intentional about trying to do especially when it comes to the body of Christ, is even when I don't understand how someone spaeth may be functioning toward them is to not make a judgment about it. I, mean, a Kenneth Copeland has been ministry longer than I have been alive in a he's got he he has a relationship with God that made him. You know prophesy in act out in a way that some of us may not understand but I'm just really careful about making sure that I don't Mike anyone else's faith even if I don't understand it and that's not just for the Kingdom I think that as we seek to really have better interfaith relationship that though I may not understand the Muslims walk, I may not understand you know, Judaism fully, I may not understand Hinduism but to. Not. Make a judgment on things. I don't understand and to ask that he would continue to give them a method. We make a grave mistake when we make fun of things we should be praying about if we really think that there's something there that is all that is leading people down a path that God will give the leader with them in those following them with some so that we are intentional about not creating more division. That's me.
The First Dog With COVID-19 Has Died, And There's A Lot We Still Don't Know
"April when buddies family I started to notice that something was a bright buddy started breathing really heavily, any hadn't mucus knows, and this was the first thing is family notice that you know the first sign that he was not himself. That's Natasha daily a wildlife reporter with National Geographic. Buddy was a German shepherd who Natasha says by his family's account was a very, very good boy. He loved running through sprinklers, Keitel's love like running and diving right into the lake. His family loved address them up for Halloween, is also photos of him in a bunny costume and you know he's just it looks like he's just grinning at the camera and so when buddies started getting sick this spring, just before his seventh birthday, his family, Robert Allison Mahoney and their daughter Juliana. While, they were worried I mean he'd be completely healthy, and then all of a sudden in the sprain he. started. Struggling to breathe and the first thing. I thought was he has the virus. Meaning the corona virus in the reason they thought that. They had also been sick. So specifically, Robert Mahoney, the husband had tested positive Alison Mahoney. Robert's wife had not been tested, but she was showing symptoms. So she had it to. The daughter Juliana who's thirteen tested negative. But when it came to getting buddy attest, that was a lot harder. But he's regular vet wasn't seeing patients. The Vet significantly said, there's no, he has like just you know there's no way and he prescribed the antibiotics over the phone. Another vets gave buddy ultrasound and x rays. But also didn't think he could have the krona virus remember no dog had yet tested positive in the US. And many vets didn't have the tests for animals anyway. But one day. Robert, Mahoney sister saw facebook post about a vet where they lived on. Staten. Island that had just gotten some test kits. Robert. was like great like let me call right now. Get down there, make an appointment, and so he was able to make an appointment for ten PM on a Friday. So it was a very strange time, but it was the clinic was really busy, and so it was the the first law they had available. That was Friday. May Fifteenth a full month after he started showing symptoms a few days later, but he finally got test that revealed. He was positive. This was a huge deal. Buddy was the first dog in the US known to have the virus and the USDA announced the news in a press release on June second. Buddy wasn't named in that press release. The government only identified his breed. In fact, we only know the details of his story because of Natasha's reporting. The USDA said in. June, that quote the dog is expected to make a full recovery. But Buddy didn't get better. He got more and more sick in June. It. All came to a head one weekend in July. And a warning that the details coming up are pretty tough to hear. So Allison. Came downstairs the morning of July eleventh and found buddy in the kitchen in a pool of modeled flood He was throwing up blood. It was coming from his nose. It was just horrific and devastating for the family, and at that point, they brought him into the vet and the decision was made to euthanize him which was obviously really really difficult on top of two and a half months of stress and confusion that the family had already been through thirteen dogs and eleven cats have tested positive in the US for cove nineteen according to public. Records and while those numbers sound small, they raise big questions about how virus can affect people and their pets. Today's episode. Natasha. Daily on why. Some of those questions are still so hard to answer. Allison Mooney said to me that you tell someone that your dog tested positive for Cova. Did they'd look at you like you had ten heads. You know there's no rubric for navigating covert in your pet. I'm Emily Quang and you're listening to shortwave the daily science podcast from NPR. First off the current CDC guidance that there is no evidence that pets can transmit the coronavirus to humans, and that's partially why testing for animals isn't more widespread. We do need to say to that test for animals are different than the test used to detect the virus in humans. All animal tests are processed in different labs are processed in veterinary labs. Not, there's no overlap between human testing and animal testing. So. While some of the mechanics of the tests may be the same. It's not at all taking resources away from humans. But because a covid positive animal isn't seen as a danger to humans, there's been very little scientific study of how the virus can affect those pets or even how it can interact with other diseases are pets may have. That's where we're going to pick up buddy story with an Tasha daily. Yes. So new blood work was taken on July tenth the day before a buddy died, and it was on July eleventh when the Mahoney's brought buddy in. To essentially be euthanized that they found the results of that blood work on and the blood work indicated that he very very likely had lymphoma, which is kind of cancer, right? Yes. Lymphoma is a type of cancer So I I asked a couple of veterinarians who were not involved in buddies case at all to review his full records and they said that, yes, every single one of the symptoms he had could be explained by lymphoma, you know A. A big open question is deity SARS Yovany to present clinically in buddies body, and what that means is did the virus cause any symptoms? For example, the trouble breathing was, and so I think it's it's tough and we'll never have an answer to this was every single. One of his symptoms are the lymph, Oma? Or was some of it, the COVID and the breakdown of fat isn't something that we have an answer to, and you also pose the question. Will. We won't know whether the cancer made them more susceptible to contracting the coronavirus exactly, and that's sort of a big takeaway from his case You know our dogs or cats with underlying conditions like cancer as it turns out. More likely to contract the virus because we know humans are humans It's thought that humans that have suppressed immune systems maybe more likely to contract the virus, but not only that maybe the virus may be more likely to present in ways that are more significant in their bodies if if they're already immuno-compromised. So the same question remains for animals and we just have so little data to investigate it.
Reflections that Awaken our Heart
"Nama stay in welcome. I was talking with a friend. This week actually a number of people about schools opening not opening and one from was telling me how she was dealing with it and it reminded me of a favorite story that I'll I'll share with you, which is a woman describes how A tired old dog wandered into a yard and she could tell there was no tags but some the collar well-fed belly that the dog had a home but he followed her into her house and he followed her down the hall and fell asleep on her couch and her dogs didn't mind. She felt like, okay. Seems like a nice dog. So she was okay with that and let him nap. After an hour the dog went to the door she let him out and the next day he was back again and he resumed the exact same position on the couch and slept for exactly an hour. So this continued for several weeks and the woman got curious says she pinned a note to the dog's collar and she wrote on the note that every afternoon your dog comes to my house for nap in I don't mind but I wanNA. Make sure it's okay with you. While the next stay she got a note on the caller was returned to her. It was said this it said he lives in a home with three children he's trying to catch up on his sleep. May I come with him tomorrow So. This is the era of Cronan. We have in different situations, but I'd say the one common denominator our dogs are celebrating endless pack time. You know they're loving the wind was there with. and Perfume it is not always that simple. So. That's kind of a little bit of a warm up the title of this talk and perhaps next few I'm not sure how long is reflections on radical love. And radical is radical loves a term that's out there now and radical connotes essence are route actually route and like radical acceptance or radical compassion. Radical love arises from the purity of our away go ramesh. Koch through all delusion of being shepherd and not. Okay. And it really comes from an brings out our basic goodness. Radical includes all flavors of love. Compassion compassion is the feeling of love that arises when we encounter suffering. It's at tenderness of love. And love radical love also includes the. Warm Open feelings of connectedness oneness that come with intimacy with our friends in partnership. Animals, and it also is the feeling of wonder and awe at the sacredness of life. So there are many flavors of radical love. In a way what might understanding really is of spiritual life is that love is the essence of spiritual life in our human domain And all begin in a personal way with this talk that during my. Senior Year of college I became increasingly aware that what was central to me what mattered was this yearning to live my life from love that that became really important and there were several experiences that actually dramatically affected my life course that happened that year. And one was that I had become very politically active is really idealistic in a sense I guess about and I thought it was maybe more around the corner than it was about having an equitable just peaceful world a Compassionate Society? and. So I had plans for law school and I'd go to organizing meetings. With fellow leftist oriented political people and I started noticing how much the vibe was angry in that there's a lot of bad of the ring is what I call it now, and then I go onto my yoga. Class. Where I'd touches inner peace in this open heartedness And I started seeing really clearly that. Our capacity to create this world that I believed in required coming from. A very different state of mind than are sitting around me and one that I felt like I to cultivate myself.
Amy Spowart, Head Of The National Aviation Hall Of Fame
"Many years especially when right field was more impactful when the foundations of today's age were taking off so much research with here at Afrl, and there's all kinds of research and aerospace research places that are here. It made a lot of sense Scott Crossfield even said to me once amy, you're not a pilot unless you through right field everybody who's anybody flies through right field, and of course, you know in the early days, there were Ayla celebrity who always came on China and it was John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart. Who's who I remember? My first enshrinement in nineteen ninety, nine Ted Williams came at Joe Foss. We've had John Travolta Dennis, quaid miles, O'Brien all been and sees it the hall of fame event but I would say following the economic downturn of two thousand nine and companies started to pull out of the Dayton area. It was harder to get that kind of support. So while the city of Dayton wholeheartedly loves having the hall of fame here we also Need people who can sponsor because we receive no federal state or local funding at all whatsoever. So we have to depend on aerospace aviation companies industry to support US and in Trimbe it was a big help us getting brand recognition. It's never been moneymaker. It's part of our mission to memorialize. So we need people to support our education and support are learning center through sponsorship. So what we decided to do in two thousand seventeen is actually take quote unquote. Show on the road, the Oscar night of aviation left Dayton and we went to Dallas first, and then we went to DC in twenty, eighteen and Denver and twenty nineteen than we were supposed to have a homecoming here in twenty twenty. But of course, the this year has been postponed until two thousand, twenty one we're working on getting is back to the National Aviation Hall of fame in Dayton use an abbreviation there a F- on the Air Force research. Lab. So. Here Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Employees. I think it's twenty to thirty thousand people in. Southwest Ohio, and only about less than half of those are active military. So there's a lot of research scientists here, and that's where the United States air force does all their most important research everything from what they're going to build aircraft out of to what their munitions do and Jet Propulsion. It's all located here in Dayton at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Still is very much a hub of aerospace activity. especially from the military and. Speaking of which there are signs that the or the appeal of aerospace is not resonating with the youngest generation do you sense that and if so is the hall responding in some way? It's hard because it's just like covert. The company's nonprofits that survive cove. It are the ones who are going to adapt and react to the situation with kids with this next generation they're not so much looking up lake weeded or the generation before me did Neil Armstrong stood in one place and what's fair to the sky and we all know the Wright brothers played with a little plastic helicopter type thing that inspired them. So we need to appeal to kids in. What interest them? So that might be if they're interested in the environment, they WANNA make less noise from aircraft. They want less jet fumes from cargo plane. That kind of thing we have to say, why not you? Why don't you figure that out? It makes me think of enshrining clap Myra who wanted a safer jet plane. So he thought about it and thought about it and he Allen Clapp mark came up with this idea of putting a parachute on the top of. A plane and everyone's like that's not gonNA work except the vision jet is pretty remarkable. So what we need to do is have kids interact or read about or they have to know who Bill Mayer is, and it isn't just Alan Shepherd. It isn't just the astronauts it isn't just the inventors it's all the Chinese and they can inspire kids more than just an aviation. It could be designed it to be dreamers that could be artists, but if we all have. Heroes. That's what gets kids going and if we give them a problem like make less noisy aircraft or might be a kid who's a Gamer and they sit on the computer all day, they're actually going to be fantastic drone pilots. We just have to recognize what they're doing and adapt to it.
The Parable of the Lost Sheep (Luke 15:37)
"Luke Chapter fifteen versus three seven. So Jesus told him this parable? What man of you having a hundred sheep? If he has lost, one of them does not leave the ninety nine in the open country and go after the one that has lost until he finds it. And when he has found, he lays it on his shoulders rejoicing, and when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors saying to them. Rejoice with me, fry found my sheep that was lost. Just. So I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven or one center who repents than over ninety nine righteous persons who need no repentance. I remember. Sharing this story in the middle of nowhere like way far out with a shepherd with a shepherd who had sheep like a real shepherd, like this was his livelihood and as I told the story. So this is A. Non, believer, not someone WHO's follower of Christ. In fact, it's someone unreached people group where most people in this area of this country have never heard the Gospel, and so I'm looking for opportunities to share the Gospel as I'm sitting out there drinking I. Don't know what I've been served and eating. I don't know what that I've been served and I'm I'm sharing this story with him and his eyes light up, and he says, that's exactly what I would do like if I had one sheep out of all of them, there was missing I would do everything I could to find to rescue that one sheep. And? As he shared that with me, I looked at him and I said I, I wanNA share with you that this is the way God perceives you. God loves you like this. He wants you to know his love for you. Began to share the Gospel and I. Just I want to encourage you today like wherever you are whatever is going on in your life. That God loves you like this. It, God loves you so much. That he has sent his son Jesus to die on the Cross for you for your sins. And God, just think of God has come searching after you. God has thrown. A joyful celebration in heaven over you over your. Salvation. Let that Soak in his love for you, his joy and you. And then as you soak that in think. He doesn't just love me this way like he loves. The people around me this way and he loves. People around the world in the middle of nowhere like this. So, God, we praise you for your love for us. We praise you for searching after Scott I. Shudder to think of where I would be if you did not come searching after me. Thank you for pursuing me with your love Jesus. Thank you for dying on the Cross for my sins. I I, pray along side my brothers and sisters who are joining me in this rare right now, we thank you for your love for us. Thank you for pursuing us. Thank you for caring for us. Thank you for the celebration that happened in heaven. When we buy your grace because of your pursuit, you're loving pursuit of US use saved us all glory be to your name, and so we pray we pray that you would use our lives to make your love known. Among? All kinds of ones around us. For family members and friends who don't know you and your love in Christ. We pray for this moment of rejoicing gallery. Pray the lost would be found Gary. Pray this for people right around us and people far from. US. Pray for unreached people, groups, God, we pray for the Khatri in Pakistan over a million of them, this high caste, high class part of Pakistan, God that you would draw them by your grace by your mercy, pursue them raise. Raise up harvesters because we've been praying according to Luke, chapter ten, raise up laborers who will go and make the gospel known among the poetry in Pakistan, help us to be a reflection of your pursuing love in the lives of people right around us and people far from us and replay that you would spend our lives so that there might be rejoicing in heaven over centers who are repenting and receiving your love and your grace and your salvation. We pray this in. Jesus name.
Twitter Hackers Arrested
"We have learned more about who's behind who is believed to be behind the twitter hack. And you know not some four. Powerful state-sponsored cybercrime gang, just A. we believe a seventeen year. Old Kid His name is all over the tech press. I heard you not wanting to say it on on, Mac. Breglio. So but I do have it in the show notes. To find it I mean. Yeah. You know I come from the School of journalism where you don't say the names of miners were accused of crimes, but apparently nobody else does that. So the AD the local Florida news channel. WFL talks Tim right away. They outed him as Graham Clark from Tampa Bay Florida. We. So they also. Suitably creepy, picture. Of Him. I know in fact in fact before. I reduced in size I. Actually had in the show notes. He looks a little bit like spock at so. got kind of a pointed ear. Is Little bit creepy. And, it's interesting too that his nick is Kirk. So Oh, maybe. Two Years Yeah. So Anyway the the the sad thing is this guy's life is now seriously sparked up. Yeah. He's been charged with felonies relating to computer communications and organized fraud for scamming hundreds of people using compromised account according to a press release from Hillsborough State Attorney. Andrew Warren's office. This guy Grab Clark. Now. Faces Thirty Felony Charges? So we have one count of organized fraud involving more than fifty thousand dollars, seventeen counts of communications, fraud of over three hundred dollars. One count of fraudulent use personal information. For an amount over one, hundred, thousand dollars or thirty or more victims. Ten counts of fraudulent use personal information and one count access to computer or electronic devices without authority and scheming to defraud. So in total thirty counts of felony charges, all of those felonies. So I mean I do feel like unfortunately, there's there's sort of a bit of. overreaction I, I, mean I get it that. This was not good and certainly that the law enforcement wants to send a message like don't do this even if you can Initially, the the initial announcement didn't indicate whether Clark had any partners in crime, but a few hours after the press conference announcement, the world learned that the US. DOJ had also filed charges against two other suspects believed to have helped Clark in this hack. The first of those was identified as Mason Shepherd who who's known as chair Juan nineteen years old living in Bognar Regis in the UK and the other is identified as Nima Fazackerley. Also known as Rolex twenty, two year, old residing in Orlando Florida. The US Attorney Anderson said there is a false belief within the criminal hacker community that attacks like the twitter hack can be perpetrated anonymously and without consequence today's charging announcement demonstrates thus I think an example has been meeting is being made. That, the elation of nefarious hacking into a secure environment for fun or profit will be short lived. Criminal conduct over the Internet may feel stealthy to the people who perpetrated, but there's nothing stealthy about it. In particular. He said, I want to say to would be offenders break the law Ed. We will find you please. So exactly the kind of thing hackers go. knows. That's GonNa, really scare me, I remember when I was a teenager. And in Fact Leo, did this did I? You know I was always a good kid. But oh, to be seventeen and have done Brazi network in front of me. Yeah. Yeah. Twitter early, fairly clever. Because, well, go ahead because it the way did it was kind of kind of interesting. Yeah. So for their part twitter disclosed a bit more about the nature of the attacks. They said that the that the phone based social engineering attack allowed the attackers to obtain the credentials of a limited set of employees, which then made it possible to gain access to twitter's internal. Internal Network and support tools although not all of those employees were who are initially targeted had permissions to use account management tools. The attackers you know apparently, just actually just Graham was able to use their credentials to then access twitter's internal systems and gain information about twitter's processes that expanded knowledge then enabled the attackers to target additional employees who did have access to twitter's privileged account support tools. Reuters also had reported something that I had not seen elsewhere, which was that as of Earlier. This year. More than a thousand twitter employees and contractors had access to twitter's in tools and could change user account settings in hand control over to others a thousand. And this was a key. To former twitter employees. Well as we know such widespread access makes it difficult if not impossible to defend against the sort of hacking that occurred.
Saykara in the Office with Dr. Gabe Charbonneau
"So before jumping into say care I'll just. Just tell you what my my workspace looked like before So I, I considered myself to be quite optimized and I was actually skeptical that this was going to make me faster for example, because I thought. Okay. I'm pretty quick at dragon. I have. My note templates optimized. I've got all these macro tools that I use. So I actually thought to myself is sort of this like person that was gonna Shepherd in something to try for some of my peers that might benefit from it more because maybe there was more more room to go and so So that's that was my background going into it when we started the pilot. So the I'll I'll just walk through like what a what a typical encounters with chairs like and then sort of some of the observations I had so So it's a mobile APP on your phone. It's an APP and it has your patient lists for the day on there, and basically before I go into the room I, select the patient I'm GonNa go see in I, walk in and I make sure it's okay with them that I use this a assistant because it's going to record the whole conversation. and. No one has objected to that. Yet. I mean they. They know that it's secure and compliant and all that kind of stuff. and. Then you turn it into listening mode which basically activates that it's okay for it to listen to the conversation and that's that's basically then I sat down. And from there So there's two things that are happening. One is that it's capturing all the audio from our from our conversation At this stage, I'm on version of the product that requires a little bit more queuing. It's a little bit like Alexa, where you you say, Hey, Cara, which is activation word right at or okay Keira in that gets into ready to accept the command. So it sort of mix little beep in the screen changes color and it's like ready to go and then things that you can do at that point are. You could say some speech that's like a recap of your narrative So so I've taken a history with the patient. And I. Say now I want to now, I want to get that into the note for today, I'm going to repeat back what I, what I heard. You say and I I also say if if I made any mistakes or left anything out when I'm please let me six, can I So from the beginning when you're taking the history before you get to that sort of that summary. Is. It still listening. Is it recorded at that point? Yes. It's listening so part. So I was going to circle back to that so far. So the technology's evolving like the dream is a fully autonomous sort of completely only tech solution where you know just like it listens to the whole conversation is sort of accurately catching the speech and then parsing that both for intention and. Direct. Transcription and lick capturing structured data and so forth, and like there's no need for any human kind of editing, and that is the model that's being built in as people who know about Ai and deep learning. It requires huge volumes of data, right? So this transcript, this conversation is we are building that. So okay, we're in the process of using. It s if it were like an Alexa in your exam room, you talked with voice commands, you don't have to speak any punctuation. Is Very natural, intuitive, but But what I'm actually most excited about this is like you're geek doctor is that we're actually building the model of the future So so that's where like I don't think that's the typical users not gonNA come at it being excited about like I'm helping build the future. They just want right like to ease my burden, but that's that's part of what excites me see. Okay. Yeah. So so anyway, so I. So then I will, but then I'll just speak naturally. Naturally. So you know the patient came in for whatever, and these are the things and and then you can voice command. Say thanks care when you're done and and then You know if there any changes, you just naturally say you know actually high blood pressure has been going on for two years versus whatever, and they'll. They'll change that and fix it. So you don't have to like drag and you have to find exactly how it came out highlighted. Say it again sort of supervise. So. This is another key observation that happened to me is that I didn't realize how much sort of mental effort it was taking for me to to proofread. Sl went with Dragon Like you say it in under sort of watching it, go on the screen and and that those are mental gymnastics really and so Cara secure has. Editing done in the background and quality control with people. Make sure that whatever whatever you said comes outright, and it's definitely better than I was reading my own notes dragging because I would think I said something, and then that would think i. saw myself saying that thing on the screen in that wasn't the case. So I'll get weird stuff sometimes in my notes. Yeah.
RIP Buddy: The first dog to test positive for the coronavirus in the U.S. has died
"He was old. He had health problems, and now he has died, apparently of covert 19. But what really makes Buddy unusual is he's a dog.

It's It's going going to to go go to to a a dog dog park. park. Let's Let's say say or or you're you're gonna walk your dog where lots of other dogs to walk. Don't let your dog jump upon somebody or let strange people come up and Petra dog, Dr John how is president of the American Veterinary Medical Association? Aviation, maintaining the social distancing that you would with people. Probably not let him go nose to nose with the other dogs there have now been millions have reported covert cases involving infected humans around the world, and not one apparently infected by a pet.

Coronavirus-infected German shepherd, first dog to test positive for COVID-19 in US, dies
"Buddy, the German shepherd will go down in the medical history books as the first dog to apparently die from Cove it 19. But he was getting on in years and, like people with risk factors did have some other medical issues. But then came the Corona virus, which Buddy apparently caught from its owner makes it much worse of you. Conditions, and he may have had lymphoma on. Of course, when you have abnormal immune system, it's gonna really decrease your chances for getting over anything. Dr. John how is President of the American Veterinary Medical Association? Nobody is the 1st 1 that actually got sick enough to die. But being here I probably that cancer spread to his liver and spleen are never where else. There's just no way to survive that there have been no known cases anywhere in the world of humans getting covert 19 from their dogs or from any other pet for that matter,
First dog in the US to test positive for COVID-19 has died
"A German shepherd in new. York. That had the first confirmed case of Covid nineteen and a dog in the US has died Robert and allison. Mahoney Staten. Island, told National Geographic that their seven year old shepherd buddy developed breathing problems in mid. April. After Robert had been sick with the corona virus for several weeks, a veterinarian tested buddy in May and found in positive for the virus. The US Department of Agriculture reported in June that a German shepherd in. New. York state was the first dog in the. The country to test positive for covid nineteen, but did not identify the owners buddies health declined steadily after he developed breathing problems and thick nasal mucus in. April. He was euthanized on July eleven after he started vomiting clotted blood, the Mahoney's told National Geographic. It's unknown if the corona virus played a role in his death blood tests indicated buddy likely had lymphoma. A cancer of the immune system veterinarians told the family a spokesman for the New York, City Department of Health. That arrangements were made to take the dog's body for a necropsy. But when the instructions were shared with the veterinarian, the body had already been cremated. A USDA database of confirmed cases of the coronavirus and animals in the united. States includes twelve dogs, ten cats, a tiger and a lion. The agency says there is currently no evidence that animals play a significant role in spreading the corona virus, but it appears the virus can spread from people to animals in some situations.
"shepherd" Discussed on Agape Baptist Church | Scottsboro, Alabama
"That's the number of fulfillment that's the number of wholeness. That's that's the number of perfection. So how many shepherds the count there on the screen. One two three four five six. It's in that context weigh a heavily not just upon the mind of Jesus. But upon the mind of the Pharisees to him Jesus is speaking that he says the next words in verse of that and look at John Chapter Ten in verse eleven. He says I am the Good Shepherd I am. The Good Shepherd you pharisees. I know that you know six shepherds. I'm telling you that I am here. I am the ultimate the final. The chief shepherd the greatest latest shepherd the shepherd of all shepherds here to lead his people. I'm here I'm the fullness of all all that you know about being a shepherd and God being a shepherd to his people but chapter ten verse eleven is directly connected to the previous verse. I before Jesus says I am the Good Shepherd. We can't divorce that frahm burst in. He says the thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy so I came that they may have life and have it abundantly I and the Good Shepherd I am the Good Shepherd so so Jesus is saying something about where to find a life. He's saying something about how he helps us final life and he's telling us something about him being the shepherd that is the good one the good good one I am the ultimate shepherd I on the Good Shepherd and so the Good Shepherd he tells us lays down his life for the sheep. That's twenty goes on to say in verse eleven. The Good Shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. Now another dynamic of shepherding saying that. We're not familiar with because we don't shepherd in here animals that is But we actually a shepherd actually would have to go out at at the end of the day and they have to count the sheep not so that they could go to sleep right. Because I've got the wrong mattress retailer or whatever like seaweed but they would go out and count the sheep because is when a sheep you. That's a female. She is pregnant when they start going into labor. Guess what they'll do they'll just pop down right right right were there. They will move now. In some cases the reason the shepherds have to be diligent in some cases even when the sheep are left to graze and wide open pastures. That are fenced-in then they can't wander too far. If there any hillsides then we all know that with animals. Gravity AIDS along the process of birth and so If a sheep on a hillside and went into labor she would pop down and if she bought down with her head pointed down towards where gravity would not allow. Allow that baby sheep lamb to come out. Then what you have is you would have not just one dead sheep but to dead sheep because Ah instinctually while they know the voice of their shepherd. That's really all they know. Besides they're prone to wander and so when the when the sheep would be around at the end of the day when the shepherds come around the sheep in modern times the shepherds would have to go and count all the pregnant us. Yes and if there was one missing the entire family of the shepherding family will go out and look for that you and they don't pick her up they don't throw it on the back of the truck and say we'd come give birth closer to the house and some cases and this this is why shepherding happening must be really dirty profession and some cases they will go and they'll just kinda take one of these little pop up tents right and wherever they are they will erect that ten and and they will kind of snuggle with the you to make sure that she keeps warm until she gives birth because until she gets she's not getting up and so this idea of being a shepherd is obviously going to entail some degree of diligence and then beyond that endurance and self-sacrifice when we think about the shepherds having to lay down the height of the sheep. We don't just need to think of David it facing a lion and a bear. We need to think about the Modern Day shepherd out there you know cuddling with his youth. Who's about to give birth right? Because that's his job. He loves the sheep. He tends to be sheep. He cares to the sheep he he he doesn't want another her situation where he finds Shrek. The sheep dead in a cave somewhere with sixty pounds of war on him right. He wants he wants the sheep to live. and Jesus says that's how you can tell a shepherd from thief or a robber or a hired hand is because they won't sacrifice sacrifice themselves for the sheep that the Good Shepherd he lays down his life for the sheep verse twelve even he says it explicitly a hired hand or not a shepherd who does not own the sheep's wool coming leaves them. Leaves the sheep up and flees in the wolf. Snatches them and scatters them he flees because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep. And I think that's as close as you're going to get in these words. As Jesus. Throwing an indictment at the Pharisees based on what had happened in John Chapter Nine. Jesus looking at the various. You don't care about these people pull all you care about protecting your own authority. All you care about is protecting the structure of power that you exist in it keeps you respected and esteemed and in a place where people need you. That's how you can tell the truth shepherd from a thief robber or wolf breath. It's also how you can tell a preacher of the Gospel from somebody on TV. WHO's trying to fleece you because all they want you want you to do is send send me your money? y'All Kenneth Copeland's sent my grandma. My Dad's here this morning. It'd probably still sent him my grandmother stuff from and she passed away in one thousand. Nine Hundred Ninety nineteen ninety-five that didn't he didn't take his his ministry didn't care if she was dead. All we want that check and I would say probably ninety percent of the preachers that are on TV. That are in. You know you know. These set TV sets things like that. They're not they're not good shepherd's they're not get pastors and they're definitely not preaching preaching the Gospel and so do you want to find live sheep. Don't follow the voice of the shepherds don't even even though it's convenient. Don't follow the voice of those shepherds because the good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The Good Shepherd leads the sheep to life even at the sacrifice of his own. And this is why Jesus has been sin in fact skipped down to seventeen. Jesus picks this back up. He says for this reason the father loves me because I take down on my la down amount life. That I may take it up again. No one takes it from me but I lay it down of my own accord you see. Jesus was not compelled by force by by the father to come and lay down his life. Jesus willingly came and took on flesh for you and for me to die in our place to be our substitute to provide the atoning sacrifice of blood that was required because the wages of your sin the wages of my sin is death and without the shedding of blood. There is no forgiveness of sin. And so what Jesus is saying in verse seventeen is that I came of my own free will to come and and lay my life down so that you church can find life. Nobody compelled me to do it. And in fact that's the reason that the father loves me. The way that he does is is because he sees this in me. In fact Philippians chapter two takes an even further. It says that that God loved the sacrifice of of his own son so much that one day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Crisis Award to the glory of God the father because he emptied himself taking the form of a servant being made in the likeness of men he became a servant to us so that we could find life. Nobody else on this earth is doing that for you. The most significant relationships in your life are still tainted by sin but not this one because our good shepherd loves us with an undying love the opposite of love is not hate self-centeredness. Jesus's are a MA life down. No one takes it for me. I do it on my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and I have authority to take it up again. This charge I've received from my a father rum chapter five verse. Eight says that God showed his own love for you and this is that while you're yet center Christ dot for you. John John Chapter Three Verse Sixteen says the God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son that whoever would believe in him should not perish but have everlasting life. You see God gave us his son because God loves his own glory because God loves us. Do you realize that this morning I still remember and In two thousand and one still remember sitting across cross from one of my best friends who happen to work at Watson's Diamond Center there in Auburn Alabama and writing that big big check for Mendis Wendy's engagement ring. I wasn't too big okay. Just don't get any bad ideas but but still it was definitely a big check that I've ever written at that point right and and I remember I remember getting that ring and setting up the proposal you know and and which is another story story for another time. But here's what you need to know about that. I had a friend. I had a friend who actually said Jesus loving guy but he said he said listen. He said how much money you spend on on the engagement ring is a testimony to how much you love her and I really went into it with like thinking that right we can tell you. That's not that's not the root of love right. He had that wrong. It shows you that that even even even well intentioned people can have bad ideas. That's right but I really did like as I said across hit me but then I was thinking as I'm I'm planning a proposal and everything you know what the gift was an expression of the love but the love existed before the gift but it was just that ah in that sense. The value of the gift to me was an expression of the depth of my love. And that's true if you spend one hundred dollars or five thousand dollars or.

"Now. After after World War Two Canada continued to produce mosquitoes for other countries. That wanted to add them to their airforce. Some of the returning Canadian Nadya Air Force personnel wanted to stay in the aviation business and one company in particular Spartan Air Services got a very large contract from the Canadian. Government do the first complete and comprehensive mapping all of this country and the airplane that they eventually settled on after some unsuccessful. Successful attempts with other types was the mosquito so one of their people went to England ended up buying a bunch of retired. Mosquitoes bringing them to Canada. Mountain Mountain. Large mapping cameras and they photographed over two million square miles of Canada from which we got our first complete comprehensive the handsome set of maps of this entire country. ooh currently to mosquitoes under restoration in Canada ones in Windsor Ontario and the others in Calgary Alberta. It's one that my organization is looking after after right now both of these airplanes used to work for Spartan Air Services or at least the the basis of the one in Windsor did in Windsor decided to go in a slightly different different direction so they're no longer restoring a spartan air services mosquito. They're essentially building new but using some of the original material their intention is to fly that airplane airplane the airplane. That's in Calgary I said was a former Spartan air services airplane. That did the incredible job of photo. Mapping all of Canada well our mandate mandate is to restore this mosquito as it actually served in Canada after World War Two and as such it will be the only civilianized mosquito in the entire world world. There are presently about thirty surviving mosquitoes in the world and every one of them is done up in former military colors so we are honoring the actual history of this particular mosquito as it served here in Canada so you'll see it With the camera mounted in a and with the lovely spartan logos and colors and all that sort of thing unfortunately our airplane had a very rough life after it finished work Spartan air services so it cannot be made airworthy. We'll be able to fire it up and move it it around but we won't risk it. Buy Actually taking it up into the air. Structurally it's just not capable of being flown again. I'm Richard Boer is the founder and president of the Calgary Mosquito Aircraft Society George Stewart knows firsthand. Why the plane was dubbed? The wooden wonder Mr Stewart is a former mosquito pilot who flew more than fifty sorties over Germany during the Second World War from his base in Norwich England. If it were real you'd find the Mariam Saint George Airbase in the shepherd just kilometers away. Last Christmas Carol spoke with Mr Stewart. He was about to celebrate his ninety fifth birthday. George do you remember the first time you flew a mosquito carol. I can remember that vividly as maybe fifteen or sixteen when the mosquito mosquito was first brought out and it was magic it the fastest airplane in the world and I remember going out with my instructor. The first this time on this I is September. Nineteen forty three to the aircraft and Having flown the tiger boss it had a little hand hole hole in the wing where people could hold it and guide. It could wiggle it up and down. I went to sort of wrap my knuckles on the mosquito. It was like a cement bridge and You know as terrifying as it was B I wondered how in the name of goodness could ever get off the ground or stay in the air. It was so heavy weight. Eleven tons and You know I was nineteen at that time and Needless to say I was quite impressed. They had had problems with before lost some airplanes when it broken half fairing that didn't strike fear in your heart art slang in this ghetto given it had those kinds of. I can't say that I I wasn't nervous but I was more excited here. I was Carol. Carl and I could not believe that my fondest wish was being at sred to fly a mosquito. It started up and that is something I will never forget of two engines. You Know Sixteen hundred fifty horsepower but then taking off wow wow It just went from being a just a lump to a racehorse and the thing that impressed me I did bit of a steep turn and I could see these streams of condensation coming off the wingtips you know just enormous light doing two hundred and forty dollars an hour just cruising. That was beyond my dreams whether the mosquito you're out of sight of the field and no time at two hundred and forty miles an hour but it it just felt so solid and responsive to the controls. You're just a kid a teenager at this point what's been quite experienced in the air and that wouldn't complain well. The German night fighters were terrified of us if they shut us down account a double so. We're pretty careful. Careful there that you made sixty sorties over Germany during the war. What was the nature of those missions? What were your objectives? Are Jaw was officially called Barmer Armor support. People like me night intruders would go to the German night fighter aerodromes from which the night fighters is that were attacking our bombers had operated and we would circle that airfield from five hundred feet up to three thousand feet and just keep circling letting even know that we're there. And then to make matters worse we had four cannons twenty millimeter cannons. We had four Three Oh three the chignons guns and we carry two five hundred pound bombs so when we finished our what our patrol we would dive in upcoming searchlights flights and everything and drop these two bums other nice runway and get away as soon as we could That was the only sort of a scary part. Did you ever think you might die when you're out in the Saudis well that was in the main part of our memory but we thought there's a very good possibility US ability that we might not live and we lost a few airplanes uh in our squadron including our commanding officer from I'm dropping and picking up. Spies at night in occupied France. Twenty six years old sticky Murphy but my navigator advocated night. Gotten sort of comfortable as you can call it comfortable even over enemy territory. It would be so black. You couldn't see anything except you could always see the difference between land and water so we looked for water rivers and lakes and that sort of thing going in but I got more to World War Two then it got out of me as I said At the time we were the fastest propeller driven airplane in the world this this was an exceptional airplane. George I really appreciate you sharing us the well just a thrill to be in one of these mosquitoes and being in the air and thank you for that and happy Christmas. Happy Christmas and happy New Year to you. Marry Christmas and happy by by former mosquito pilot. George Stuart speaking with Carol last December our last stories about a real life snowman who who traded a slave for an airplane and subbed in for Santa for forty one years but not exactly a snowman but a man named Snow Ted. Snow as you'll hear the pilot was kind of modern day. Saint Nick two lighthouse keepers along the east coast of the US and Canada from nineteen seventy seven. Here's Al Maitland. Introducing Mr Snow's conversation with former as it happens host Barbara from New England's very own Santa may not rely on reindeer power but he does get around at top speed and in his little single engine aircraft. He also doesn't worry too much about getting stuck in narrow chimneys either since his parcells arrived with the help of gravity in this case Santa Claus is Ted snow from Marshfield Massachusetts and he delivers his annual gifts to the lighthouse keepers of the eastern seaboard from Sable Island to Cape Cod. We've managed to catch up with this latter day. Saint Nick in Boston and he's on the line Mr Snow. I should call you Mister Santa Claus. Snow sounds just as appropriate anything you read.

And and you can find more of that interview on our website at CBC dot ca slash ai earlier in the show. We got a little history lesson on the plane featured in the shepherd in part two of our deep dive. Into the mosquito Richard deboer offers a little primer on some of the many ties. The plane had to Canada. Mr Deboer is the founder and president of the Calgary Mosquito Aircraft Society Canada's Canada's contribution to the mosquito happened in several ways the first of which was the materials so the would that was being used was birchwood spruce fir and Balsa and with the exception of Balsa. All of those woods were available mostly out of western Canada so even before Canada started up production of the mosquito at their downs view plant. We were supplying the wood the basic raw material for mosquito production. That was happening in England. Canada's newest light bummer poll. The mosquito is shown to the public. For the first time built of wood. It's to outmaneuver and outdistance. Many fighter planes connection test pilot. The havilland son of the famous designer takes along shortly absence skew to begin flying to have them which had its factory. Also down through on. -Tario said Hey why don't we start making them in Canada's well so we started picking up production we ended ended up building eleven hundred and thirty four mosquitoes out of the total of almost seventy eight hundred that were made at the Canadian to have an impact engineers from the home company arrived by air to organize the building of mosquitoes.

"So I thought right the best thing to do at least push myself into a drift which then I show full round and maybe the tech which city and what have you and I turned round and started building the back with like snowballs bounds. The blizzard did was so bad. Blue Mahat off and I'm quite bold so that was another letdown of. I was going to get cold sure. You're you lose all your body heat so I I got what I call a snotty Hanky. I'd used all day but that's still not head tied the notch you know. Yeah and then. I pulled the front of my pullover out of my thank Baba coat that tells them my head by not in my barbeque O or anything because my hands were too cold so you made a kind of a little tiny tent in a sense. That's right so that kept my head then. I carried on with IGLOO.

An couldn't see not a thing so I I feel the igloo which filled very quickly If you think about you make snowballs they got little holes in between of course it was soon filled up. How did you get the idea to build an IGLOO? A number of years ago go. I watched a program on television a mountain rescue and to people caught in an avalanche or something like that but they they managed to catch on the rock which had covered them with snow and he can woman. I think they were three days before they were found. So I I thought right. We'll we'll catch underground. Keep yourself warm. Stay putting someone will find you. Well there was quite a search party out looking for you yes I also am death. Death aid the search party came out on Saturday.

"Fireside Al Maitland's reading adding of Frederick Forsyth's shots story the shepherd. Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas here at as it happens without the shepherd but of course for many years it was not only that but the reading very nearly wasn't as I hinted at the top of the broadcast when it first aired in nineteen seventy nine. It was kind of an experiment. Bob Campbell was the executive producer. Then as you'll hear him explain getting the shepherd to air was a real long shot Extraordinary character and the program. I suppose the biggest thing that he brought to the program was his voice. This is what we countered on him for. He was a virtuoso of voice. In fact I think he started his his career at the C.. is a singer just after the Second World War and you could tell that. When he was reading stories you could see him who watch them rehearse quietly and even with the shortest script? He'd he'd work on the thing work work on work on it until he was happy with the thing word by word the way it sounded shepherd had some some wonderful qualities to of course it was sat at Christmas it was about a pilot was set at night. Some poor follow trying to find his way home on Christmas Eve and had a spiritual component to a military component him one of the highlights of our Christmas in past years as happens with bringing a lot of military posts together across the country and around the world. We on both like to wish our families and friends very merry Christmas. I would like to wish my husband Mandy and our two boys Matthew Noni very merry Christmas being away and I love you all. It was a wonderful story in it. It fit in with a lot of things we were doing but there were a couple of issues But do you think about the shepherd. It was our second choice. What we really wanted to do was a story about the Christmas truce in the first world? War In nineteen fourteen. But we couldn't find one. We did find the story eventually of about the shepherd the problem with the shepherd. Of course that was a long story program that we were used to running a along item at the time would be probably four and a half or five minutes and this story ran probably in excess of twenty minutes so we had some discussion about whether this was the kind of thing that we could run how it would sound in the program decided finally that we would then the problem was with the cost cost and of course most of the stories that we have Christmas stories were in the public domain with no cost thrall but this one we ended up talking to the authors agent. The cost was extraordinary ordinary him. At least for us it was. It was a huge amount of money. So we still really wanted to run the story but I ended up going back to this follow John saying well. Is there any way we could reduce the cost here at all were public broadcast from a small program. And it's Christmas program and come up with every reason reason we could think of to To try and bring the price down a little bit. He called back in in fact he did. They brought the price down to a far more reasonable level at least for our point of view and then we had to convince the budget people here. That was a good idea to be running a Christmas story about an airplane. Tonight was Christmas Eve in nineteen in fifty seven and I was a pirate trying to get home for Christmas. You know when we ran that story we heard radios and monitors up and down the hallways people listening to the story as we walked past. I suppose it was at that point. We realized that this had more impact than we'd realized when we chose to put the thing on the air then after we had letters and phone calls from people Listeners saying this was wonderful and they were riveted to the radio and they sat there when they were. We're expecting to be going out to a cocktail parties and going about their business. They couldn't get out of their cars. They were they had to stay in to hear the how the story ended about the shepherd. Our family traditions started when we lived in Prince. George family friends had an open house on Christmas Eve. They were about eighteen kilometers out of town. It became a tradition that the timing of our trip. And the timing of Allan Maitland would coincide sometimes. Sometimes the driving was a bit fast and we'd have to idle in the driveway waiting for Alan to finish his story of course as we approached the next Christmas must people are writing again asking if we please run the story that that how had read so wonderfully and I think that's still true now. I still hear people talking about the Shepherd Bert as it happens and I think the program has run the story just about every year since we started my johnny out on his last patrol Christmas Eve nineteen nineteen forty-three just over fourteen years ago. Tonight you never come back so went down surprising somewhere so in the North Sea. Eight had a good Nacho..

Even at this this time of night the meteorologist took the call and I explained the position to him. I am afraid there must be some mistake flying officer he said it could not have been one of ours are mosquitoes went out of service. Three months ago we now use Canberra's. I stood at the telephone in disbelief. Then an idea came to me what happened to them. They were scrapped. I think or sent off to museums more likely. Could one of them been sold privately. I asked I suppose it's as possible. Thank you thank you very much and happy Christmas. I put the phone down and shook my head and bewilderment what what an incredible night I lose my radio and all my instruments then I get lost in short of fuel than am taken in tow by some moonlighting harebrained with a passion for veteran aircraft aircraft.

Yes Joe Mr Marks told me about you. Sorry to call you so much trouble at this hour of the night. I I just dropped him as you might say. Yes Mr Marks told me. I'll have your room ready directly soon as this fire burns up quite cozy. While I ate at the plate of sizzling beckoning eggs. They owe Stewart state to talk. You've been here long. Joe asked him more out of politeness than genuine curiosity. Oh Oh yes now on twenty years now since just before the war when the station opened he taught me the days where the rooms were crammed with eager. Young pilots dining room noise at the bar roaring body songs of months and years when the sky above the airfield snarl to the sound of Piston engines driving planes to war and bringing them back again. I rose from the table fish cigarette from the pocket of my flying suit. Literate and sauntered around the room the steward began to tidy up the place I halted halted before an old photograph in a frame standing on the mantle above the crackling fire. I stopped with my cigarette. Half raised my lips feeling the room suddenly cold the photo who was old but it was still clear enough. It showed a young men in his early twenties dressed in flying gear. But not the grace would simplistic crash helmets of today. He he wore thick sheepskin lined boots rough serge trousers on the heavy sheepskin. Zip Up jacket from his left. Hand dangled one of the soft leather flying helmets. They used to aware with goggles attached. Instead of the modern pilots tint adviser he stood with legs apart right hand on hip defiant stance but he was not smiling was something sad about his is behind him stood his aircraft there was no mistaking the lean. Sleek Silhouette of the mosquito fighter bomber. I was about to say something to Joe when I felt a gust of cold air and my back one of the wind blown open. It took me two strides across whether windows swung in its steel frame to get a better hold hold stepped inside the curtain instead out somewhere far away in the fog I thought I heard the snarl of engines but it was probably just a motorcycle of some farm boy. I closed the window. Made sure it was secure and turn back into the room. WHO's the pilot Joe? Aw I nodded toward the lonely photograph on the mental. That's a photo of Mr John Cavanaugh. He was here during the wars. A Nari Ariz gentlemen very fine man find my say so as a matter of fact sir. This was his room. What squadron was that that Joe I was still appearing the aircraft in the background Pathfinder Sir Mosquitoes they throw very fond point? It's all of them sir. But I believe Steve Mister Johnny was the best of them all but then I'm biased. Sir I was he's Beckmann. You'll see there was no doubting it. The faint letters on the nose of the mosquito behind the figure in the photo read. Jk Not Jake King but Danny Cavanagh the whole thing. It was clear as day. Kevin had been a fine pilot. Flying with one of the crack squadrons during the war after the war had made a pile of money bought an old mosquito and one of the periodic auctions of Seles and aircraft refitted and flip privately whenever he wished not a bad way to spend your spare time. If you had the money so he'd been fighting back from some trip that Europe spotted spotted me. Turning and triangles above the cloud bank realized I was stuck in taking the untold pinpointing his position precisely by cross radio beacons knowing this stretch of the the coast by heart. He'd taken a chance on finding his old airfield at Menton. Even in the thick fog it was a health risk but then I had no fuel left left. What was that or bust? I had no doubt I could trace the men probably through the Royal Aero Club. He was certainly a good pilot. I I said reflectively thinking of this evening's performance of the best Sir said Joe they recognise is like a captain Mister Johnny recalled so many times quoting return eat every mosquito refilled and take off again alone. Going back over the channel of the North Sea to see if he could find in some crippled bomber making for the coast and guide. I've seen pictures of them. I said he used to guide them back. Doc I could imagine them in. My mind's eye gaping holes in the body the wings and the tail creaking and swaying. The pilot sought to hold them steady for home. A wounded dying crew on the radio shot to bits. I turned from the photograph and stuff to my cigarette and bite into the ashtray by the bed. Quite a man I said and I meant even today middle aged. He was a superb fire. Oh yes quite a man johnny. I not gravely the old man so obviously worshiped his wartime officer. Well I said led by the look of it. He's still doing it now. Joe Smiled. Oh Oh I hardly think so sir. My Johnny went out on his last patrol Christmas Eve nineteen forty three just over fourteen years ago tonight. You never come back.

The wooden wonder Mr Stewart is a former mosquito pilot who flew more than fifty sorties over Germany during the Second World War from his base in Norwich England. If it were real you'd find the Mariam Saint George Airbase in the shepherd just kilometers away. Last Christmas Carol spoke with Mr Stewart. He was about to celebrate his ninety fifth birthday. George do you remember the first time you flew a mosquito carol. I can remember that vividly as maybe fifteen or sixteen when the mosquito mosquito was first brought out and it was magic it the fastest airplane in the world and I remember going out with my instructor. The first this time on this I is September. Nineteen forty three to the aircraft and Having flown the tiger boss it had a little hand hole all in the wing where people could hold it and guide. It could wiggle it up and down. I went to sort of wrap my knuckles on the mosquito. It was like a cement bridge and You know as terrifying as it was B I wondered how in the name of goodness could ever get off the ground or stay in the air. It was so heavy weight. Eleven tons and You know I was nineteen at that time and Needless to say I was quite impressed. They had had problems with before lost some airplanes when it broken half fairing that didn't strike fear in your heart art slang in this ghetto given it had those kinds of. I can't say that I I wasn't nervous but I was more excited here. I was Carol girl and I could not believe that my fondest wish was being at sred to fly a mosquito it started up and that is something I will never forget of two engines. You Know Sixteen hundred fifty horsepower but then taking off wow wow It just went from being a just a lump to a racehorse and the thing that impressed me I did a bit of a steep turn and I could see these streams of condensation coming off the wingtips you know just enormous light doing two hundred and forty dollars an hour just cruising. That was beyond my dreams whether the mosquito you're out of sight of the field and no time at two hundred and forty miles an hour but it it just felt so solid and responsive to the controls. You're just a kid a teenager at this point what's been quite experienced in the air and that wouldn't complain well. The German night fighters were terrified of us if they shut us down account a double. So we're pretty careful careful there that you made sixty sorties over Germany during the war. What was the nature of those missions? What were your objectives? Are Jaw was officially called Barmer Armor support. People like me night intruders would go to the German night fighter aerodromes from which the night fighters is that were attacking our bombers had operated and we would circle that airfield from five hundred feet up to three thousand feet and just keep circling letting even know that we're there. And then to make matters worse we had four cannons twenty millimeter cannons. We had four Three Oh three the chignons guns and we carry two five hundred pound bombs so when we finished our what our patrol we would dive in upcoming searchlights flights and everything and drop these two bums other nice runway and get away as soon as we could That was the only sort of a scary part. Did you ever think you might die when you're out in the Saudis well that was in the main part of our memory but we thought there's a very good possibility US ability that we might not live and we lost a few airplanes uh in our squadron including our commanding officer from I'm dropping and picking up. Spies at night in occupied France. Twenty six years old sticky Murphy but my navigator advocated night. Gotten sort of comfortable as you can call it comfortable even over enemy territory. It would be so black. You couldn't see anything except you could always see the difference between land and water so we looked for water rivers and lakes and that sort of thing going in but I got more to World War Two then it got out of me as I said At the time we were the fastest propeller driven airplane in the world this this was an exceptional airplane. George I really appreciate you sharing us the well just a thrill to be in one of these mosquitoes and being in the air and thank you for that and happy Christmas. Happy Christmas and happy New Year to you. Marry Christmas and happy by by former mosquito pilot. George Stuart speaking with Carol last December our last stories about a real life snowman who who traded a slave for an airplane and subbed in for Santa for forty one years but not exactly a snowman but a man named Snow Ted. Snow as you'll hear the pilot was kind of modern day. Saint Nick two lighthouse keepers along the east coast of the US and Canada from nineteen seventy seven. Here's Al Maitland. Introducing Mr Snow's conversation with former as it happens host Barbara from New England's very own Santa may not rely on reindeer power but he does get around at top speed and in his little single engine aircraft. He also doesn't worry too much about getting stuck in narrow chimneys either since his parcells arrived with the help of gravity in this case Santa Claus is Ted snow from Marshfield Massachusetts and he delivers his annual gifts to the lighthouse keepers of the eastern seaboard from Sable Island to Cape Cod. We've managed to catch up with this latter day. Saint Nick in Boston and he's on the line Mr Snow. I should call you Mister Santa Claus. Snow sounds just as appropriate anything you read. Have you made your rounds this Christmas. Yeah correct I finished last Sunday. So you don't like to a bump in the Santa Claus up there. Well we never know but we do know that I've been to Canada on seven of the trips down through the party. One Years I. I've been flying. Have you ever bumped into the bearded gentlemen and all your flight since nineteen thirty six. No I haven't but I have a lot of experiences. As has the flying Santa and one of them was at sable island which is way out to sea off Halifax Nova Scotia. That was one of your your traditional drop sites. Would you just hurl these packages out of the window had to do it or open a back door where you get a special window.

"Some carols conversation from last year with Jay Edwards of North Vancouver. The Second World War pilot turned one hundred and one in October. And and you can find more of that interview on our website at CBC dot ca slash ai earlier in the show. We got a little history lesson on the plane featured in the shepherd in part two of our deep dive. Into the mosquito Richard deboer offers a little primer on some of the many ties. The plane had to Canada. Mr Deboer is the founder and president of the Calgary Mosquito Aircraft Society Canada's Canada's contribution to the mosquito happened in several ways the first of which was the materials so the would that was being used was birchwood spruce fir and Balsa and with the exception of Balsa. All of those woods were available mostly out of western Canada so even before Canada started up production of the mosquito at their downs view plant. We were supplying the wood the basic raw material for mosquito production. That was happening in England. Canada's newest light bummer poll. The mosquito is shown to the public. For the first time built of wood. It's to outmaneuver and outdistance. Many fighter planes connection test pilot and some of the famous designer takes along shortly absence skew to begin flying to have them which had its factory. Also down through on. -Tario said Hey why don't we start making them in Canada's well so we started picking up production we ended ended up building eleven hundred and thirty four mosquitoes out of the total of almost seventy eight hundred that were made at the Canadian to have an impact engineers from the home company arrived by air. Organize the building of mosquitoes.

"Fireside Al Maitland's reading adding of Frederick Forsyth's short story the shepherd. Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas here at as it happens without the shepherd but of course for many years it was not only that but the reading very nearly wasn't as I hinted at the top of the broadcast when it first aired in nineteen seventy nine. It was kind of an experiment. Bob Campbell was the executive producer. Then as you'll hear him explain getting the shepherd to air was a real long shot Extraordinary character and the program. I suppose the biggest thing that he brought to the program was his voice. This is what we countered on him for. He was a virtuoso of voice. In fact I think he started his his career at the C.. is a singer just after the Second World War and you could tell that. When he was reading stories you could see him who watch them rehearse quietly and even with the shortest script? He'd he'd work on the thing work work on work on it until he was happy with the thing word by word the way it sounded shepherd had some some wonderful qualities to of course it was sat at Christmas it was about a pilot was set at night. Some poor follow trying to find his way home on Christmas Eve and had a spiritual component to a military component him one of the highlights of our Christmas in past years as happens with bringing a lot of military posts together across the country and around the world. We on both like to wish our families and friends very merry Christmas. I would like to wish my husband Mandy and our two boys Matthew Noni very merry Christmas being away and I love you all. It was a wonderful story in it. It fit in with a lot of things we were doing but there were a couple of issues And what do you think about the shepherd. It was our second choice. What we really wanted to do was a story about the Christmas truce in the first world? War In nineteen fourteen. But we couldn't find one. We did find the story eventually of about the shepherd the problem with the shepherd. Of course that was a long story program that we were used to running a along item at the time would be probably four and a half or five minutes and this story ran probably in excess of twenty minutes so we had some discussion about whether this was the kind of thing that we could run how it would sound in the program decided finally that we would then the problem was with the cost cost and of course most of the stories that we have Christmas stories were in the public domain with no cost thrall but this one we ended up talking to the authors agent. The cost was extraordinary ordinary him. At least for us it was. It was a huge amount of money. So we still really wanted to run the story but I ended up going back to this follow John saying well. Is there any way we could reduce the cost here at all were public broadcast from a small program. And it's Christmas program and come up with every reason reason we could think of to To try and bring the price down a little bit. He called back in in fact he did. They brought the price down to a far more reasonable level at least for our point of view and then we had to convince the budget people here. That was a good idea to be running a Christmas story about an airplane. Tonight was Christmas Eve in nineteen in fifty seven and I was a pirate trying to get home for Christmas. You know when we ran that story we heard radios and monitors up and down the hallways people listening to the story as we walked past. I suppose it was at that point. We realized that this had more impact than we'd realized when we chose to put the thing on the air then after we had letters and phone calls from people Listeners saying this was wonderful and they were riveted to the radio and they sat there when they were. We're expecting to be going out to a cocktail parties and going about their business. They couldn't get out of their cars. They were they had to stay in to hear the how the story ended about the shepherd. Our family traditions started when we lived in Prince. George family friends had an open house on Christmas Eve. They were about eighteen kilometers out of town. It became a tradition that the timing of our trip. And the timing of Allan Maitland would coincide sometimes. Sometimes the driving was a bit fast and we'd have to idle in the driveway waiting for Alan to finish his story of course as we approached the next Christmas must people are writing again asking if we please run the story that that how had read so wonderfully and I think that's still true now. I still hear people talking about the Shepherd Bert as it happens and I think the program has run the story just about every year since we started my johnny out on his last patrol Christmas Eve nineteen nineteen forty-three just over fourteen years ago. Tonight you never come back so went down surprising somewhere so in the North Sea. Eight had a good Nacho..
