It will make it really awful. I mean, we talk about faith and elections evaporating overnight.

We want to make voting easy, but we want to make cheating really hard. It seems like the primary objective Democrats as me. Feeding really easy. I mean, it makes processes the bigger, bigger Carter Commission that point out that apps keep Alice is probably number one point of allowing Friday elections. So you ought to. You ought to be very careful with it limited and certainly put controls over it. What Democrats did under the guise of Covid, the expanded dramatically absentee mail in balloting while they reduced all the controls over it, they didn't let observers observed.

That's what happens in relationships. The honeymoon period is anywhere from six months to two years and then during the pandemic. Maybe you're spending more time together and that kind of squashes out the the the arousal and the attraction process because when we're on top of each other we're seeing to their more while we feel more intimate and more connection and more love with our partner it's sort of.

Oklahoma City Thunder Embarrass Boston Celtics
"Special guest tonight, tonight is Jeff Goodman. And before we get to his latest zesti, take on Joe Brown which we will a little bit later in the show. We just want to welcome him to the Garden report. Post game show and Jeff will give you first bite at the Apple. It's I don't know how many times we're going to say worst loss ever because it feels like we've said it a lot. It's hard to not bother. It's hard to not tell this the worst loss ever. This is so this Jeff they work. They were atrocious and embarrassment but I don't listen, I don't care that Jayson. Tatum and Kemba Walker didn't play. I do care because I think Jason should have been out there. I don't know how bad the injury is, or whatever, is dealing with public. And it came like this, you gotta be out there. This is what 11/12 games left in the regular season. You needed this win, you could ill afford a loss like this, but even without Tatum and Kemba last name. They were without shade gilgeous-alexander, and they stink, they absolutely stink. They're trying to tank they've got a garbage team other than Lou door and you lost. You had supposedly Dead one of the top 25 players in the NBA in jail and Brad. I thought, Oh, supposedly. And it starts now, you mean using all subjects, you mean you're not lose. That's the supposedly Factor know. It's, it's true. Jeff look. I think they rolled the dice on Tatum thinking we could get away with tonight and still squash out the window. And so we needed to give him a day off. Let's pick the game and they pick this one on the back to back on the front, end of a back-to-back, and it burned him obviously. And I don't think he's, I don't think he's hurt but I mean, I get it doesn't matter. Like I watched this whole game, I've not watched to Oklahoma City games this year, I still can't name a player on their team

Meet The Author, Shane Wilson, Realistic Fantasy With A Sharp Edge
"To the big program as i mentioned. It's a an episode of meet the author. Shane wilson is storytelling. No matter the medium. The emphasis of his work is on the magical act of the story and how the stories we tell immortalize us and give us give voice to the abstractions of the human experience. Ladies and gentlemen please open the ears open minds and help me welcome in whoop. Waco shane wilson to the my duck pakistan. Welcome thank you so much. Thanks for being here. Now it's a pleasure so get get me hip two way our way are you are 'cause i'm not sure i know you're a southern guy. Are you giorgia I'm curly in north carolina. You know what i said. That and i don't know why i said that last night but then i was questioning myself. This is why. I asked you this at first up last night. I said it was raised in georgia. Sir right. I read your bio that you i believe born in alabama raising in georgia but i said last night on the air i said i. It's north carolina guy. And then i looked it up today and i was like no. I'm wrong. he's not where they get those carolina from now you just said it. So where did i get it from. It's not online anywhere that fact. I'm getting it actually. You might be psychic. In which case mybookie dot com is definitely a place for you but yeah i mean i feel like somewhere in the bio somewhere in all of the information out there. It probably says that. I teach college in north carolina which is true. Well i did not see. I wasn't aware of that. So you're you what are you. Teaching kalki teach english literature music. I teach composition creative writing that kind of thing very cool stuff so Tell me a little bit about yourself. How how when you kind of got the author bug. We'll start with the author stuff. Then we'll come back to the music little later on but tell me when you when you first realized the way that it should be thing Because i think i've been writing forever I i'd be hard pressed to find a moment in in my life. At least i actually remember when i wasn't writing I remember my parents buying me. An old typewriter When i was just a little kid. And i remember like i would practice spelling on it. i would ask my mom to spell for me like the the most complex words i can think of a kid it was stuff like rhinoceros right and i would ask you to spell it and then i would like pick it out and so i was practicing already getting kind of the bug and then i remember like second grade. I would write these short stories and just handwriting out. I'd put them in a one of those three prong folders and then i would draw cover and glue it on the front Like saw i was already thinking about book design and stuff even though i wasn't cognizant of that right and so yeah like from the from the jump right in has been a part of me and the through. I think the evolution is pretty similar to a lotta guys that are that are writers in that you know middle. School comes along. And now i'm writing poetry in order to hit on girls And the same kind of thing in high school. And then you get when i got into college. The academic spirit kind of squashed some of that creativity as it will do And then on the other side of college. I slowly started to chip away that published some poetry some short stories and then accidentally wrote a novel while There's a lot to respond to their. But i i'm i'm smiling because i thought i'm going to say this now even though i wanted to say this for a little bit later in the conversation but I thought when i saw romance and fantasy stuff betsy kinda stuff that either A guy who's a player trying to impress women or gate would well you know The the romance stuff is is very light. In in most of what i write every now and then i will dip a toe into that sandbox. Because i think and and i don't write traditional romance. When i do that i write stuff that kind of turns genre upside down or i try to. Because ultimately i think romance is kind of trite and empty void of a genre So when i when. I do play over there. I like to to try to get in. Turn it in on itself. A little bit But for the most part the fantasy stuff is it comes from The my academic focus. When i was at school. I studied a ton of magical realism. I had a professor who is very into that genre and sir My master's thesis was on salman rushdie and midnight's children And all that stuff so yeah so like i was reading a ton of magical realism. And so i don't write. What would be considered hard. Fantasy like tolkien. And those guys right fantasy this grounded in our reality but there are magical elements at play.
Starr Sackstein: Connecting Students to Their Curiosity
"I have. There's so much that. I wanna talk to you about their so many things that we both share a love of at a passion for getting students to ask great questions and also working with teachers on asking great questions and so i really wanted to talk with you about. Why would you say that this is important so for me at the heart of inquiry is really good questions and to be curious about the world around you. You need to have that heart of inquiry so just going beyond. What is this or you know if we are looking at phenomenon thinking about young children and their curiosity versus what it looks like. By the time. I was seeing them in twelfth grade. I think finding ways to connect kids to their curiosity. That questions are really the way to do that in a learning space and as an educator. It's so important for us to be curious about our kids and what they need from us so teaching them to ask really good questions really opens up the kind of dialogue rikaby having in class as well as opens up other modes of means of assessment of those children at the same time. Yeah i think one of the things that i've noticed. Is that a lot of the questions that get asked and so teachers like well. I do ask questions and sober. But a lot of the questions are either comprehension of content questions and they're close ended questions or even if they're masked as open ended questions. The teacher has an idea in their mind of what the answer is. And i think sometimes that's where we get stuck and why students have a hard time understanding that there's many kinds of questions that will get you many kinds of information that you need absolutely and as a journalism teacher and teaching kids interview skills and coming up with really good questions. That are gonna drive what they end up writing eventually. It's so important to really get people talking and when we had the answers to the questions that were asking. There's really no point. Ask those questions. Certainly as as a new teacher. When i started out. I made those mistakes too. I think every teacher dozen the beginning of. When i was teaching a text in my lesson plans i would have the questions and the answers. I was looking for in them. And i think it took years for me feel confident enough to go rogue if you will asking questions where i couldn't possibly know what kids were going to say and where that might take me ends feel confidence even with that lack of preparedness to walk into a space and you know give over the control of the content of the kids and i think by having open ended questions. Essentially what we're doing right. We're giving them control the conversation. Yeah and i do agree with you that for a lot of people. That's really scary. I remember when. I figured out what you just said i think was this a pitney that i had when i would give these questions that i felt that i had the answers to like. I was searching for something that i wanted the students to say and then they would say something different. That would blow my mind. That i had that i had never thought of and i would tell them i was like. That wasn't the answer. I was looking for with adds amazing answer. You just taught me something. And they loved that. So that was really an inspirational moment for me to realize. Maybe i shouldn't preplanned what i think the answer is and and just ask these questions at let everybody kind of we can all learn together as it was an amazing paradigm shift for me. I remember also asking my students to comment on a text by giving me three good questions. And what i found is they didn't know what i meant by a question like in my mind. I knew what i meant. But they didn't know so all of their questions were were comprehension content based like they would expect a teacher and i said well. Can you find that answer in there. And they said yes. And i said then. Why do you have that question. Look in the tax. Asked me a question that you don't know the answer to that. You want to know the answer. So i think like in the older grades. You mentioned kindergarten. I were we have innate curiosity when we're younger right but by the time they're in high school like you said like if they don't if it's been squashed out of them we need to retrain them to have that curiosity. Yeah well i mean the system is set up to basically kill it at them when we focus so heavily on testing and grading and creating assessments. That require them to have one right. Answer i think really makes kids reticent to like not only do not know how to question but they also don't know how to trust themselves when they have their own assertions about things because they're terribly anxious about being wrong and when you're young. Being wrongs not a bad thing. It's a part of the learning process. And i think somewhere between fifth grade and probably early high school or maybe even before that when you know state tests starting third grade they start to understand that there are right and wrong answers. According to some. And if i'm going to be successful playing this game of school. I have to learn how to get the right answer and spend my time focusing on that. Rather than spending time on things i find fanciful or interesting because that's not going to help me right now and it's it's a crying shame. What school systems do to kids. And you know. I'll spend the rest of my career trying to write it if not only for my own child but future children who come through systems and you know they should be leaving school more serious than they start out the other way
From Australia to Canada, how Indigenous people are coping with isolation one year into the pandemic
"It has been almost a year since the covid. Nineteen outbreak was declared a pandemic. it's an anniversary. I'm sure many of us are not too happy to celebrate. This year has been a real challenge in the pandemic has fundamentally changed our lives but many folks have found ways to not let isolation get the best of them. I know so many people out there all around the north. Were ready to support you. I think a good storyteller reminds you that all storms pass. We've been here before but we can help to route at resilience and make them more aware of how strong young folks are this week. Unreserved how indigenous people are turning to digital communities storytelling and culture feel connected to squash those isolation blues cleo denny writer richard van camp has essentially been on a one book a year pace for two decades his latest called gathered share some secrets to great storytelling and it includes seven stories. Elders from his community have shared with him. Richard is here with us now to talk about his new book and how storytelling can help fight and banished loneliness especially during this pandemic. he joins me now from edmonton. Welcome back to the show. Richard musi cho- feeling sal. My see my friends thank you. So let's party. yes let's party. So can you tell us about your latest book gather. Oh thank you. Must he chose so. Gather really an exploration of my journey as a storyteller. For those of you. Who don't know my name. Is richard van camp. I m c show denny. I was born and raised in fort. Smith northwest territories treaty. Eight country goes born in nineteen. Seventy one and i was raised in a town. It was. It's the maty capital of the northwest territories if it's paradise schwartzman throws territories officially quadri-lingual so bush cre- dna a french and english spoken at any given time. And when i graduated from high school i ran. I went from hero to zero. Because i had no idea what i wanted to do. No idea at all. I wanted to be a break dancer. I wanted to be a minjah. i was nineteen. I had a mullet. Some pinch hickeys. And i actually had a real existential crisis. I had a midlife crisis at nineteen. Cause i was like what am i gonna do. Who am i supposed to be. And i saw that. They were looking for drivers for the handy bus. They were looking for volunteers. And when i saw that on the green screen in fort smith northwest actors. The bango channel. I realized that that was what i was going to do. I was going to volunteer. I'll start driving the elders around. Because i was a really good canadian. Really good treaty indian. I was a really good person. I was a former. But i was a really poor ki- chou denny. I didn't know anything about our language. I knew a little bit of butter culture through our mother. But you know i was so busy having fun growing up by what i realized when i showed up to begin my apprenticeship as a handy bus driver in fort smith northwest territories to the matriarchs to the lighthouses to the mama. Bear's portsmouth arthritis territories. And i'm talking about irene centers. Dora toronto seraphine evans. Emilia gate tricks. I'm talking about the sweethearts of our community. They could see right away. That i was a really hollow indigenous person culturally and that i was searching and they took me under their wings and it was bingo runs. Hospital runs medical runs. It was trips to cancers in the northern store and trips to the landslide to watch the pelicans return it was through those driving shuttling and careering the royalty of our community wherever they wanted to be that they started sharing their stories with me so gather is really about what i learned. The smartest thing. I ever did belan was i realized a few months into apprenticeship as the handy bus driver. Fort smith risk territories. No one was recording our elders. Nobody because the mistake we make as we think everybody is going to be here forever. And so i remember explicitly having this. Oh my god. If i don't record our elders and get these stories downs. I think we're going to. We're not gonna have this opportunity my message with gatherings. Don't wait to record your heroes. Honor them now.
Do Produce-Saver Products Really Keep Food Fresh Longer?
"My friend gary rights. I've been seeing ads for products that claim to absorb ethylene which allows produce to last longer to these products. Work would baking soda or activated charcoal. Do the same thing. I think we've all had the disheartening experience of having to throw away expensive fruits and vegetables because we didn't use them up quickly enough. No one likes to waste money of course but there's even more at stake with food waste we throw away. Shocking percentage of the food that we produce which is especially tragic when you consider how many people around the world experience hunger on a daily basis hunger and food. Insecurity is not just an issue in developing nations here in the united states the richest nation in the world within ten percent of households typically struggle to put food on the table and that number has increased by sixty six percent just since the beginning of the covid nineteen pandemic right now. Fifty million americans including seventeen million children do not have enough to eat on a regular basis. No matter where you live if you are lucky enough as i have been to have weathered this year long crisis without worrying about whether you'd be able to feed yourself and your family. Perhaps you will join me in donating to your local food bank or an organization like feeding america dot org. And if you or someone you know is experiencing hunger or food insecurity. You don't have to go it alone if you are in the. Us feeding america dot org can help. Connect you with resources in your area. Food waste is also a major player in climate change. Rotting food is responsible for almost ten percent of greenhouse gas emissions globally. In fact if oud waste were country it would come in third after the united states and china in terms of impact on global warming and fresh produce about a third of all the food that we throw away all of which is to say if a ten dollar product can keep us from throwing away so much food it would be money well spent and i'm happy to report that there is some solid science to support them but their usefulness maybe just a bit more targeted than the marketing sometimes suggests ethylene is a harmless gas. That's released or exhaled if you will buy fruits and vegetables. In general ethylene. Production increases as fruits ripen. And turn accelerates the ripening process so when we put unripe fruit in paper bag the idea is to trap some of that ethylene. That's being given off by the produce and use it to hasten the ripening process this works especially well for apricots bananas mangoes tomatoes avocados and melons. They're all particularly sensitive to ethylene gas. But once fruit is ripe continued exposure to ethylene can cause the fruit to become overripe and start to rot. Ethylene can also speed the decline of other types of produce according to horticultural scientist kathleen brown of penn state university at the lean can cause carrots and parsnips to get bitter broccoli and kale to turn yellow cucumbers and summer squash to get soft and mushy asparagus to turn tough apples to get mealie and lettuce to wilt herbs such as parsley and mint are also particularly sensitive to ethylene gas now low temperatures across the board reduce plants sensitivity to at the lane so just keeping produce refrigerated will help to preserve it for example if your avocados get ripe before you need them. You can hold them for a few days by putting them in the fridge. I find it most effective to move them into the fridge when they're still maybe a day short of fully ripe because some ripening will continue in the fridge but it goes much more slowly in addition you can use something to absorb ethylene gas.

So if you wanna feed your hair. Delicious nourishing ingredients feed it hair food. All their products are under ten dollars. And you can find them at amazon walmart and zeolite is a complex of minerals including aluminum and silica. That's highly absorbent. It's used as drying agent to suck moisture out of the air. This is also the stuff that makes clumping cat litter work but it also absorbs ethylene. Gas zero lights are widely used by food growers shippers and retailers to extend the life of fruits and vegetables in transit by slowing down the ripening process produce saving products that you may have seen in the consumer marketplace such as the green produce bags or the hollow ball. That you place in the crisper drawer of your fridge contain zeolite. And they are effective at absorbing lean and they can prevent types of spoilage. The bags are reusable but they do eventually lose their effectiveness. You can also buy a rechargeable zeolite filled ball to place in your crisper drawer to absorb ethylene gas now. Gary also asked whether baking soda or activated charcoal might be effective at absorbing ethylene. I can't find any data to suggest that baking soda would be particularly useful here. Activated charcoal can absorb but not nearly as effectively as zeolite. Interestingly that rechargeable ball. it's called the blue. Apple contains both zeolite and activated charcoal but the manufacturer only talks about charcoal in their marketing. I wonder if they think that charcoal sounds more natural and therefore would be more appealing to consumers than something unfamiliar like zeolite but in terms of absorbing ethylene gas. I suspect it's the zeolite that's actually doing. The heavy lifting their the chuckle may also have some odor absorbing properties. Keeping your produce in special ethylene absorbing bags may indeed extend the shelf life.

Don't have those that many collaborations that you're like. Oh my god. I can't wait for him to bring on x y and z. So i think the weekend is going to do. I heard that seven million is eight billion. He's gonna make a movie for everybody. At home superstars. No one who pitched seven eight million came and gave him a little piece of the money. Let's say it's worth it. But some hard you watching his press conference yesterday and he says like the whole performances boat basically going to be happening in the stands. He's not really going to do it. That much on the field so there'll be a little bit on the field but it's mostly somehow gonna be in the stands because for once you know there's not gonna be as many people right.

Mark Gurman Dishes On The Apple VR Headset
"It's a mark gurman apple scoop thursday this time. Mark has a whole mess of details about the rumored upcoming apple headset. Mark says its planned for a twenty twenty two launch will focus on vr gaming but also video and communications and it will only have at least at this point limited. A are features. Also it's not been easy to make and if you're expecting the low cost surprise of the first ipad. say maybe think again quoting bloomberg. The initial device has confronted several development hurdles. The company has conservative sales expectations illustrating how it will be to bring this nascent. Consumer technology to the masses apples. Typical playbook involves taking emerging consumer technology such as music players smartphones tablets and smart watches and making it reliable and easy to use for everyone. This time though. Apple isn't looking to create an iphone kit for its first headset instead. The company is building a high end niche product that will prepare outside developers and consumers for its eventual more mainstream. A are glasses. The plan suggests that apple's first headset will be far more expensive than those from rivals which cost about three hundred to nine hundred dollars. Some apple insiders believe the company may sell only one headset per day per retail store. Apple has roughly five hundred stores so in that scenario annual sales would be just over one hundred and eighty thousand units excluding other sales channels. That would put it on par with other pricey apple products such as the six thousand dollar mac pro desktop computer and apple spokesman declined to comment. Apple is aiming to include some of. Its most advanced and powerful chips in the headset along with displays that are much higher resolution than those in existing vr products. Some of the chips tested in the device. Beat the performance of apple's emlyn mac processors. The company has also designed the headset with a fan. Something that company usually tries to avoid on mobile products. That people said the headset code-named n three one is in a late prototype. Stage but is not yet finalized so the company's plans could change or be scrapped entirely before launch the aarp glasses code-named and for two one are in an early stage known as architecture meaning apple is still working on underlying technologies. This product is several years away. According to the people though apple has previously targeted as early as two thousand twenty three to unveil it the powerful processors and the inclusion of a fan initially led to a device that was too large and heavy with some concern about neck strain in early. Testing apple removed the space. Vr gadgets usually reserved for users. Who want to wear eyeglasses. Which brought the headset closer. To the face and helped shrink the size and to address consumers with poorer eyesight it developed a system where custom prescription lenses can be inserted into the headset over the vr screens. The people said apple originally planned to include less powerful processors and offload much of the work to a hub in a user's home that would wirelessly beam content to the headset. But that idea was squashed by johnny. Apple's design chief at the time. Bloomberg news reported last year. The headset designed to work as a standalone device. Meaning it can operate on a battery rather than be plugged into a wall or a mac that's similar to facebook's latest vr products while sony's requires a playstation gaming console to further reduce the devices. Wait apple is planning to use a fabric exterior. That's a departure from the metal designs apple uses for most products though it has used plastic for devices like airpods that need to be light and fabrics for the homepod speaker to improve. Acoustics prototypes of the headset. Some of which are about the size of and oculus quest include external cameras to enable some a are features. The company is testing using the cameras for hand tracking and is working on a feature. Where a user can type of virtually in the air to input text. It's unclear if that function will be ready for the first version of the device or if it will ever leave the exploratory stage and quote gherman hence that had covid nineteen not delayed development. We might have seen the headset this year. But he also stresses that the aarp glasses are the ultimate end goal. Here as apple sees that as a more mainstream product something that could sell numbers that could eventually rival the ipad apple watch or even iphone sales in the long run.
Susan Robertson How to Supercharge Your Creative Thinking by Outwitting Your Instincts
"I'm susan robertson and i'm an innovation strategist for fortune. Five hundred companies. Thanks for joining us today. I'm going to teach you about how the supercharge your own creative and visionary thinking outbidding your instincts. I'm gonna show you how to overcome major creative thinking roadblock that you probably don't even realize you have all humans suffer from a mental shortcut called negativity bias. The negativity bias is the phenomenon that negative experiences have a higher impact on our thoughts feelings and behaviors than positive experiences. So we're actually much more motivated to avoid negative. Then we are to seek out positive and this constant drive to avoid negative. Dramatically affects our thinking in ways. We don't realize because it's all happening subconsciously to illustrate the negativity by a little more. Think about this. If you believe someone had stolen twenty dollars from you. How angry do you think he would be now. Think about if you randomly found twenty dollars in the street. How happy do you think you would be. There's tons of research that shows that due to the negativity bias. We're much angrier about losing twenty dollars than we are happy about finding twenty dollars. Even though the rational value of the money is exactly the same. And that's the negativity bias. The reason this negativity biased is a roadblock to creative visionary thinking is because our brains interpret any uncertainty as danger and the immediate sub-conscious result is to try to avoid that danger ultimately. It's a survival instinct. Thank for a minute about way. Back in our prehistory when our ancestors still lived in caves. Let's imagine a little cave boy will call him grog grog. Here's a wrestling over in the bushes. He thinks i wonder what that might be. Any trots over to investigate it was a giant reptile and unfortunately grog is dead. Now think about a little cave girl. We'll call her lucy. Lucy here's a rustling over in the bushes to but listen. Thanks ha bat. Might be danger. And she runs away and ultimately lucy lives to pass on her jeans to all of us so us are descended from people who ran away from uncertainty and that instinct to assume uncertainty is. Danger is alive and well in all of us today. Our immediate subconscious reaction to any uncertainty is to assume it might be danger. We have a really common phrase that we all say when we hear or think of a new idea that very effectively kills new ideas instantly and that phrase is yes but whenever we hear a new idea or even think of ourselves our brains instantly focus on all the potential dangers. Yes but it's too expensive. Yes but it will take too long. Yes but the sales team won't like it. Yes but it won't work in our existing t system and on and on the problem with this is that it's exceptionally easy for us to identify lots of reasons why any idea might not work and it results in us most ideas before we ever even examined. If there's anything good we just reject them the moment we discover a potential problem because that yes spot is laser focused and lightning fast. The sba is so common that we don't realize how poisonous it actually is but it effectively squashes all creative thinking it. Squashes your own creative thinking when you say it or think it and it really squashes in a creative thinking from your team when they hear it from you so you need to wipe it out of your vocabulary seriously just hit delete on the yes but and that sounds like it should be easy but actually it's quite difficult because you have to circumvent an instinctive sub-conscious instant process that goes on in your brain. So that's the bad news. The negativity bias is never going to go away for any of us but the good news. Is we absolutely can retrain our brains to get around it. And i'm going to show you a neuroscience hack that will help you defeat your negativity bias. Time i call this thinking tool. Gps thinking and gps stands for great problem solving the trigger to know when you need to turn on your gps thinking is when you hear or think or say yes but when someone has an idea and you have to make a practice of noticing that yes but trigger by the way now that you're aware of it you're going to be shocked at how many times you say it or hear it every day. Once you've recognized that subconscious but process has kicked in. You have to now interrupt it with the conscious. Gps process. I'm going to give you the three steps of the gps process. And then i'll give you an example to illustrate step. One is g great. The first thing you want do is list anything. That's potentially good about the idea. What's interesting what's valuable. What's getting toward the goal. What's new were different about it. And this g great part is the part that your brain will naturally skip if you let it so you have to not let yourself skip this step g. Great step number one then step. Number two is the p. problem. Which is where your brain has been trying to go but instead of simply stating the problem. There's a critical difference here and that critical differences. You need to flip that statement into a how to question so instead of saying it will cost too much instead you say. How can we make it more affordable or instead of saying it will take too long instead you say. How can we do it. In the time that we have to p problem articulated in the form of a how to question. And then you move onto s solving. So now you solve for those problems you found in the idea by changing the original idea but keeping something about it that you thought was great from g great list. I'm going to give you an example. So let's say you mentioned to your friend you've been feeling a little extra tired lately and doesn't seem to be due to lack of sleep and your friend says Have an idea for you. Take a break every day in the middle of the day and take a two hour walk. That's what i do. And it seems to really help and your brain instantly focuses on all the yes buts in that idea. All the potential problems. Yes but i don. Tom i have too much work. Yes but i have to help kids with their homework. Yes but i have to have dinner ready. You focus on all the problems. That's your negativity bias kicking in and it starts with yes but so once you've realized that the yes bet is kicked in you go through the process in g great. You list anything about that idea. That might be good. Well exercises good. Taking a break during your workday is it. You'll be more focused when you come back to the work and you'll feel more refreshed so there are things in that idea aspects of that idea. That are good. And that's what you want to draw out in the g. Good step and once you've done that you move to step two p. Problem and you articulate those problems now in the form of a how to question so instead of simply saying i don't have time instead you say. How can i find time for exercise or you might say. How can i find time to take a break in my day or you might say. How can i find more time to relax. So i can sleep better so that. Step two problem but articulated in the form of a how to question and the you move on to step three which is solving and you solve for those problems by changing the original idea so you might say the the problem you wanna saw four is how to find more time in your day for seven exercise so you might say well. I don't have a two hour block. But i could find a few fifteen minute blocks and in those fifteen minute walk. Take a couple of laps around the house. Or i could run up and down the stairs five times. So you've changed the idea. You've you've moved away from a to our walk and you've modified the idea to be a few fifteen minute walk so you've solve for the problem but you kept something that you thought was good. Which is both exercise breaking your day. So that's the gps process. I'll quickly repeat the steps g good. What's potentially good in the idea. Knowing it's not finished p. problem articulated as a how to question and ask solution solve for those problems by changing the original idea but keeping something that you thought was great
Seed Shopping With Nate Kleinman
"So to give people the history of experimental farm network. I'll share the link to our chat last year so they can dig a little deeper The transcript of that show so we don't repeat ourselves but very briefly. It's more than a seed catalog. I mean really. it's much more than a seed catalogs. So what's the quick elevator pitch on what you do so we started in twenty thirteen and our purpose is to facilitate collaboration on sustainable ag research and especially plant breeding we are really focused on developing perennial staple crops. To help with fighting climate change things like perennial grains perennial oilseeds Perennial vegetables and The seed company side is what funds are work. We don't really reach out. Seek grants and much in the way of donations. Were really focused on being a sustainable nonprofit cooperative through seed sales so we really rely on Exclusively on on selling seeds and We do a number of other projects as well. We we work on remain creation projects returning seeds to the people from whom they came originally We do we do quite a bit of Food justice work and we At the beginning of the pandemic we started an organization called the cooperative gardens commission which worked all of last year to provide free seeds to folks and to help facilitate resource sharing to get people the resources they need to grow food themselves and that continues the collective that that is running cooperative gardens commission is still still going we just released twenty twenty report a forty four page document on our website coop gardens dot com and Yeah pfm just really started our seed catalog the other day not that you're busy or anything. So they'll give the links to all of that all of those different things as i said so. I know i shouldn't have any interaction. Probably even if mentioned that green fleshed winter squash. Because i think it's already sold out. But when i saw you post a photo of it on instagram awhile. Back split into in there. It wasn't kind of looked like a butternut but it was green inside. And i thought what in the world and i think it helps from like guatemala or something but it just spoke to me about and that's why i got back in touch with you. It has spoken about like all these oddities and wonders of genetics. And that you have these growers breeders selectors curator sort of care people caring for all his genetics and So tell us about some of the other wonders of the world that are in the catalog this year. Thank you yeah. We're very excited about that. When we really just wanted to get it out there. And i can't say i expected it to sell out in the first day i be popular but that that exceeded all my expectations and is truly beautiful. Beautiful squash This year we are. We are released. I think one hundred and forty six things that we have never had in the catalog before Some of them. Nobody had in any catalog before. So we're really excited about that We have we have quite a few in the in the grains category this year including number of upland rices or lowland rice that will grow in dry areas and in northern areas. We have a rice from poland and other couple from japan. One from russia and We're just thrilled to be offering these because rice's Rice's really great crap and it's actually something that homesteaders can grow on a on a relatively small scale. It's still produce of calories themselves

"squash" Discussed on The Wade Keller Pro Wrestling Podcast
"I don't think they're going for like metrics to brag about on youtube. But i'm curious if you know when the pandemic's over if that changes it did expand during the pandemic but i'm not even sure why. Why necessarily would i think it has to. I because you're you're going to be back in arenas that's right. You can't keep answer for that long in that circumstance. So i'm going to kill the town if you give them two hours squash matches. Plus they're going to have that other show at some point so i. I don't know what's going to do with their taping schedule because we don't know what the other show exactly is Obviously be when when things back to normal. I would think you're going to get dynamite every wednesday and they'll probably tape one of the shows maybe both on the same just depending on what again what that content is. But i think you're going to have to really strip back. Dr anything with dark and then it becomes intimidating for people. There's so much content out there. Yes they're super fans of. Aew wanna wash every single thing they do. And that's great. But i think for the average fan it becomes intimidating that with the shows two hours and fifteen minutes and tomorrow night show is the usual one and this one's not good. I because there's just you know again predictable squash matches for the most part. They've been adding a little bit more lately. I would just make them dark matches. It's okayed to have these matches not air. You can pick out the three four that you think makes no sense to err on on that youtube show and put them out there. I had the rest of them. Go out and do everything the way you're dealing number. Just sorry didn't make the. I think it does more harm than good. Yeah yeah harley. Remember the days. When women's wrestling matches were relegated to the mid card dumping ground and treated like glorified intermission. You mean the era when it was only men in the talks spots in the.

"squash" Discussed on Local Mouthful
"Local mouthful. We're here to talk shop with obsessive home cooks everywhere this week. We're talking about butternut squash. Alfredo caramelized onion kale and edible gifts. But first let's compare notes on something. We read this week. So i wanted to talk a little bit about the community fridge. Movement that We're seeing pop up all over philly Had you heard about this. I have seen it on instagram. I'm there's some people. I follow that are That promote it and leave stuff there and you know just trying to spread the word So i have. I have seen it. There's one very close to me here. by the bach building in south philly. Yeah i I've really just be. I've been becoming more and more aware of it and there isn't one in my neighborhood. Obviously because i'm writing center city and so there's not really a place where you could safely keep and protect the fridge like that But i've been giving money to the various fridges around the city. And i just love it as a way to Very easily have a large impact on You know a population that needs help. And it's it's sort of unmediated so it's like you don't have to go through an agency there's not any sort of you know Qualification that people put food in the fridge and in the pantry. And if you need food you take it and i to me. It is such a lovely system. It's very simple. It's just as refrigerator. Set out on the street. Set up on the street for people to give or take What they have to share or what they need. Yeah they're now. Fourteen of them around the city which i think is pretty amazing There's two in south philly. There's several in germantown There's one out in west philly. They're just they're all around the city and And yet like Businesses donate to them but individuals can too and so If i wasn't quite so hampered by small children in transportation in a worldwide pandemic. i'd probably volunteer for shift. But right now. I'm just you know once a week at choose one. Send ten or fifteen dollars to the organizers to help keep money flowing and get groceries but if you live near one or one sort of on your regular route you can just add some groceries when you go shopping of canned goods or produce. They always want fruits and vegetables. And you know just drop it off at the fridge. I don't think it's just philly. I think this is happening. Another gases around the country. i think Obviously the situation with the economy is not great and his only You know without People's unemployment running out and things. It's like a really rough time for many people and This is one initiative. I think that's trying to fill in the gaps Yeah and it sounds like pretty successfully mean. I wish we lived in a world where it wasn't necessary but because it is it i really just like. It's one of these little things that i want to work to support and Do can to keep going. Yeah it's an uplifting story. I actually did come across news article about it from whyy. I will drop into the show notes if you want to read about it if you have this program happening where you are. Tell us about it. We'd like to check that out too and maybe raise awareness about it for other listeners. Maybe you know people can donate to the ones in their area. Drop off a bag of lettuce. Or what have you Yeah it's that time of year where like Giving is the reason for the season right so a little piece of positive news. Yeah for what's well okay I'll do you want to know what i'm having for dinner lately desperately Butternut squash risotto risotto. We're afraid i'm sorry butternut squash. Alfredo i like butternut squash risotto to who are not butternut squash. Alfredo is new to me. tell me more. I was flipping through By one of my favorite cookbooks. Does it buying. I ease shandra moskowitz and It's like really such a dense book. There's so much in it. Like i feel like i don't have a firm grasp on every everything is in there but i came across this recipe and it just found it very autumnal. It involves roasted butternut squash siege cashew cream and it just You know. I just wanted to have that kind of a warm comforting type dinner. I personally don't think that the name is exactly right Because it's not very alfredo. He has lemon juice in a brightness from the lemon and it has a cup and a half of roasted squash. And it's a pureed it's like a blender aw so it's orange But it is. It is creamy from cashews and Savory from sauteed onions and it does have a fair amount of stage in there. So it feels extremely thanksgiving e and comforting and good although not to my mind alfredo e i would call it probably creamy butternut squash pasta which is less good name. But i had it with whole-wheat Few silly and i think it would be good with any kind of pasta shaped like really picks up The sauce. I would like it with orca or panay or you know kind of a. I'm not I'm not super picky when it comes to pasta. Although i think she does call for a few silly or rigatoni So i was following her instructions. Pretty much sounds greatest yummy. It sounds so in it. That's awesome the only thing. I liked about this recipe. Is it made so much sauce like it made sauce for us to have like it. Made like eight portions of sauce. How which is great because then you know we have it. We still have some. We ate at a couple of ancient and we still have some in the freezer which is a welcome thing for me. I like to cook once and eat many times as you know as do i and pastas like that fast comforting dinner that you always want to have. I think we had it with some kind of vegetable. Also try to you know bounce out the cream yes well. I mean that kind of sauce Big pile pasta like that with like roasted cauliflower or brussels sprouts or something really is delicious to i. I think that's what we had. Brussels sprouts uses for thought. I think it would be like a great alt- pizza sauce. Ooh do you know what. I mean or You know you could Definitely have it with beans. yeah So i'm probably going to keep using it for possible. I'll make it again for sure. And it was like just really yummy. Just basically put those things in the blender the roasted squash lemon juice This is actually published online. So i'll share a link to it great. And then you saute the herbs and the onion and a skillet and the new poor in your socities or like reduce it a bit and then add your pasta. Just lovely i put. I put a toasted nuts on top of it just for a little extra something. Yeah nice little crunchy and texture definitely going to go in my make again pile when we know you so. We had the patriot chat this weekend. And you talked about.

You know a lot of people like, Well, you know, it's been hard to work out hard to eat, right. You have been at a facility and you know that is tough. That's been extremely difficult, but we get paid a lot of money to do what we do. So you know, I think it's on each and every one of us to make sure that we did work out and stay strong this offseason, not gained a lot of that. Eat the right types of foods and be ready to show up. You know, I'm sick of the virtual stuff. I want to get in there with my boys. I want to be in a room with Munch check. I want to get up on the White board. I want to get out on the field. You know, we have talked about so much about how to run our playbook and what we're going to do. You know, I'm sick of put my cleats on and being in the backyard by myself. Tell my girlfriend to be the defensive tackle, man. I want to get out there and actually down there does that. I feel bad for her. Thank you work a lot better when it's a girlfriend. I guarantee you that. Let me ask you. This dealt in so much of this season will be determined by the most healthy his team. And one of the positions that we've been talking about around here. That would be disastrous to get Ah, positive covert test is the center position because you have to shuffle your whole entire line. To play that position. Now we know that there are multiple guys on this team that could play that position. But have you been talked to about being able to pop out to tackle and possibly Take some snaps to center. Most definitely, man. You know, from the first day I got here. Munch check told me, you know. Be ready to play any position. I remember in the first Raiders game. This is my first start, fellas. You know, I've never told anyone. This Jawan James goes down. And a large Wilkinson's ends and he comes to sideline limping. And I knew, fellas I knew I didn't even have to talk to munch Act. My stomach sank. Not that I was. It was just I knew I would have to go to right tackle my first game the NFL when I thought I would be playing left guard, and I thought, Munchak give me the finger. And he said, Yeah, yeah, he said you are you could leave could see the look on my face. He said you are no ELISA. You know, get bummed up here the next guy in and you know, ever since that I took reps that tackles throughout last year. I think I'm pretty much second or third string at every position across the line. I think Mancheck would be comfortable throwing me in there. And, you know, I would like to think you'd be comfortable throwing me in there, so I know that I might have to be You know, left guard Bite guard center, right tackle left tackle. Whatever it is, I don't have to be prepared this year. You know, Mike Montag is a great plate was a great player I played against him. When he was with the Houston Oilers. But I do believe that I played against the greatest offensive lineman to have ever played in the NFL. And of course, that is Bruce Matthews. A guy that I don't I don't know if we'll ever see another Liman like that. But the versatility and the efficiency that he played across the offensive line has he ever told you about stories about Bruce Matthews. You know, Coachman Shack literally tell stories all the time. I'm pretty dang. Sure he did Tell me stories, but Bruce Matthews wherever he's in that often the line room we'll get going on a little side tracked and help tell stories about the guys who used to play with when he was at the time wasn't the Tennessee that's where he was? Yes, he was a Tennessee before here. Yeah, as a coach as a coach. Yeah, For sure. For sure. Yes, I know. He told me stories. I can't remember pinpoint one, but I think he has told stories about birds. Well, Dalton, we know we're going to be talking to you here and there this season and we very much look forward to that. Keep your head on straight, man. And you know, if you got some of that extra corn, you're more than welcome to drop in here.

"Look around to. Where is it growing? Mostly in Florida Most counties that have agricultural will have some squash grown from south-and-north squashes one of the quicker crops to grow Probably only about a forty five to sixty day from planting the seed To get to be picking if you're good grower So you will see different times in the winter. It's grown more in Miami Dade Moccoli area where they aren't quite as cold. Then it moves to central Florida. Then it will move to North Florida and then eventually up the country if you're commercial but it is one of the easier ones for people to grow in their gardens from Alicia Florida. We're in Florida.

"Long good evening. Barbara. This is brandon from New York. I just want to act on a scale of one to ten. How hard did you work to get where you are today? And also what are the things you need in terms of passion to move up in life because what? I'm struggling right now is really motivation. An action that's what I really want. Elevate myself financially. An every other aspect of life that has health relationships and so on. Hey Brandon Nice to meet you nice to meet you too barber. I Love Your Voice. You sound so sincere. One hundred fifty percent. Thank you struggling right now with finding motivation right. Tell me a little bit more about that. It's where is in okay? I wake up in the morning. I'm always saying you know I wanna live to the best of my ability whether it's finance whether it's my relationships with my co workers you know my relationship with my future wife even though I haven't found her yet. Are you worried about it early? Good enough you'll probably make a great husband being the Best Parent. I could be even though I'm not a parent yet like I wanna live life to the best of my ability but you know I lack motivational okay. I have the idea in my mind dream about it that I could get it done but the action it's like I procrastinate on that part locale. Let's give yourself a little break here. I don't know a single person. The world who doesn't procrastinate army as part of the human condition. I don't WanNa do that right now. Right do you find that? That goes on day in day out and you just never get to first base. Yes part of the reason. I'm afraid to be uncomfortable. Like let's say a right. I want a business. I know I have to work hard for it but I would have to work two jobs for it at the save. That's part of it and the patients part okay. You don't strike me as a man who would have a hard time. Working Heart are using your little on the lazy side or lackluster sides. Yes you could say that on is GonNa marry you myself so you feel as though you lacked the motivation to work. Because he don't like to work hard or is it you not working hard because you don't know what floats your boat. So speak more fixated on the dreaming part. You know That's the fun part. Well number one right off the bat. You're thinking way we to heart. It's one thing to dream about what success looks like and who you. WanNa be when you grow up and where do you wanna live and what kind of life you want? That's good stuff. Those are roadmaps. Those up in fact almost life plans or at a bare minimum of business. Plan on how to get ahead. I like well that but it sounds to me like you're stressing too hard. I don't know another young man who's concerned about his wife nor his kids. He doesn't even have slice to plan. But I think thinking can get in the way of action. Let's assume you're thinking too hard and all the stuff. That's also a form of procrastination. Let me think about a little more. Think about a little more. You can't think and have action at the same time. What if I said to you what you gotTa do? Is You gotta go out and play in the traffic little? You gotta just go out and have action without thinking too hard about where it's going to lead where's your passion and how you're GonNa make a big. What if you made your enemy simply let me work my ass off for the next two months three months or even a week? If that's all you the stamina you have initially to do in the Natta Week on ETA week on. What do you think would happen to your life? If you worked much much harder drastically changed my dreams would come to. Life comes reality. I'M GONNA put that to a test. You can really really hard and you want to have a wonderful marriage in great kids when you grow up. How is that going to materialize by you working hard? That's not something you can really work for us to something that comes to you that has to happen. I don't know about that. I think women are attracted to men that work hard one. I'm talking about you know family so I just put that into the equation of life in a big big thing in life. What would happen if you work twice as hard as you work? Every day of the week my income would double or triple right. Yeah well maybe what do you do for a little office and childcare are moving up to the police department the New York Police Department and a couple of months good for you so you have ambition. It's not like you're refusing to do anything about making a lot in life better eight. You have the ambition to make that move. Yes but you're not working so hard at it. I'm thinking you know. Get a second job because there's a car I want. I could either save up for it or make my monthly payments on it. And what does that car look like one a nice car? I haven't liked figured out. What type of car I want yet but I have the price range in my head in how much I'll pay a month on it. And how much leftover things like that? And what color is the car? I didn't get to choose that so many different cars I want. Yeah there's a lot of cars who get within a certain budget. Here's my suggestion on that alarm figuring out what car you want exactly look at the interior. What little options you want on that car. The brand get a picture of it. Blow it up on your copy machine. Make It really big and shiny and pin it up wherever your eyeballs land when you open your eyes in the morning. Okay and then you take that picture and put a date on it. When do you want it for you? Want in two months three months or whenever you get the money together. Which would it be six months six months as more reasonable so rather than the six months? Now it's back into it. You said You'd get a part time job. You probably working eight hours in your current job. Of course you could have twenty four hours a day. You don't see more than eight hours or three hours a day. Okay to get that car you figure out how much money you have to get together each month. Not even with what the payments going to be. It would be great. If you could buy that car mostly cash werner feel a little better to get all that money within time. Okay all right so whatever you could get together and put as a down payment on that car you gotta figure out what job you get in the next eight hours of day to make that money. That's feasible isn't it? Your can you get another eight hour job where you doubtful that you could stand? It is getting the job or doing the job can do both then give yourself a deadline to get the damn job and get going on it because if you think about it and think about it. This week ain't going to happen next week. That's for sure because your biggest thing that gets in your way is your intelligent and you think about stuff and that's a curse of being too smart thinking thinking thinking never gets the action okay. Bergh's so much of course in you know in any way you know it inside yourself so now you have your other eight hour day job five days a week. If I could get it seven days a week I would do that because your other jobs only five days a week and now you want heart. What else do you want? What are the success? Do you want Marwan of business? Like long later on in life like I consider the next two three years. 'cause you know being a cop starting off the salaries not enough L. K. Unless you become a detective or a sergeant then you're GonNa make a lot more money in that. It's you don't aspire to anything like that right. I do start. It's forty two thousand. That's no money in New York could barely eat on forty two thousand especially if you have a family with kids so how about you. Promise me for the next six months of your life. You try a new life plan. You just only focus on what actions you could do to get the car. Start there when you get the actions in line and you actually buy the car and drive it out of the showroom and shiny and smells so good inside. You'll going to believe in yourself that your actions actually get stuff done while Kane and then you add the next thing you one click it off one at a time. You drive yourself nuts but promise me this. Promise me every time you think about the car or think about this. You just stare at the cars at gotta get that car to have that job. How many hours of my working focused entirely giving self report card based on actions not thoughts and you will get to exactly what you want life now to your first question. You asked me how hard I worked to get what I wanted. I'll tell you I had a dream. I wanted to be successful. I didn't know what that looked like. But I can tell you I worked one hundred and fifty percent eighty hours a week for probably thirty years to get to where it was eighty hours a week for thirty years. Maybe exaggerate the last ten years. I have to be honest with you here. Maybe I cut down five or six hours a week but I still work my ass off. Let me tell you if I spent any of that time thinking versus working. I wouldn't be where I am. You've got a work you've got to have action and stopped thinking okay would be going. You're thinking call me in how many muster to say you said it was going to take you to get the car six. You take a picture of yourself in the car and don't you fake it? I wanted in front of your house sitting in the car waving at me and let captured to say look at me. I did it did it was thought it but I did it. Got It okay. Yes six months. I got you my calendar. I better here from you. You know. Kobe Bryant the Basketball Star. That had recently passed the wave chorus. Everybody knows Kobe. He had this model call. Mama mentality where it's defined as the infinite quest to be the best version of yourself to achieve something higher than what you cheap before. Do you live by that modal. Where did you ever live by that? Mortar wipe out right now will not know so words but let me tell you you should live by that motto yourself. Kobe didn't get to who he was because even vision themselves on a basketball court. He was there practising practising practising action. Action Action Use him as your model is mantra as a true mantra. He didn't line. That's what got him to where he was and that's all the questions. We have time for today. I hope you found the advice.

"Name is Jocelyn and I'm calling from Southern California. I'm a huge fan of yours. I watched shark tank for years. I've followed on instagram. And I love how confident you are and how much you inspire. Women like myself to follow. Their dream can be a hard worker. So my question is how to overcome impostor syndrome I'm thirty years old and when I was twenty two joined the start up in California. That eventually hot. It's really successful by out. When I was twenty six I got a cash payout that allowed me to basically take a year off of work and travel and by all means it was an incredible success. However I still can't get over this feeling that it was just a fluke and this fear that I didn't actually earn anything that it was. All just luck is pretty paralyzing. And I'm having a really hard time getting the confidence to go back to the job market and tries to you. I keep telling myself that I won't be able to do it. That my six houses just kind of started lining and you just getting really lucky and your despite what my friends and family telling you should have no problem moving forward in my career. I just can't seem to believe it myself. So any advice that you have on believing in yourself everyday and your abilities. It'd be really appreciated so happy you call them with your question. I get this all the time. It drives me crazy really. Yeah Yeah Yeah so you doubting yourself a little bit. Yeah this has been something. I've struggled with throughout my career when I was in my early. Twenty S I started working for a start-up that kind of blew up over a couple of years. Were you doubting yourself before you work for the startup? I'm curious yeah. I was a little bit when I started working there and started having all these successes it was like for a little while reaffirming but then again I would kind of see like it was all just a fluke and I just got really lucky no matter how many accomplishments I hit I still kind of feel like I just got really lucky and I don't know what I'm doing and at some point someone will figure that out. Yeah we'll let the colonel. I think of anything we start to believe in and make it bigger than actual self. I think always a kernel of truth so I think the kernel of truth in what you just said. Is You KINDA got lucky? Luxa involved in every success if the world of the time he is stacked against you no matter how talented you are. You're not gonNA get a hit on your hands because everything's against you so you had a little bit of luck there. You had a background situation. You're hired for a startup. Those people are probably decent. What they were doing or you wouldn't have even had a hit if you had gone under. Let's credit lustful what it is. It was helpful. That's fair what's not fair to you to anyone out there to myself and I've struggled for myself and I'll return to that in a minute is to credit a too much that you were just lucky because this millions of people that moment in time we had the identical luck to you and they didn't get lucky like you the way you got lucky. They didn't make a big hit of it. So you're talented of something to do with it. Now your next position I assume from your question. You're already in that position now and you have doubts at the quiet times with yourself right. Yes yeah okay let me just say thank God you doubt yourself because the one thing that I have learned is true of every single person who is exceptional and whatever they're doing is self doubt without it you become big headed arrogant and you're just waiting for the clock to make you fall on your feet when you doubt yourself. It's like a human element that keeps you on the straight narrow so to speak so I've never hired partnered or done any business with anyone who doesn't have doubt someone who's second guessing themselves is what I want to see in every person because what it means is they're going to work hard to do it again and if you did it once and you combine that with working hard and just a little bit of luck which is always at grabbed. You're going to have the same success again and again because you're at the core of it does that make sense does is no accidents but believing. It is a hard part. Here's my formula for getting yourself to overcome your doubt. Every time you feel doubtful. Try to put it to the left or the right and go for a job and work a little bit harder when you work in a little bit harder. You don't have time to think about the doubt if you doubt full again. I'll work through it. I'll work even harder. That's my formula for success. When I sold my business for sixty six million and I had made from scratch out of nothing in the whole world applauded me. Written up all the papers. Oh she's a genius. She says she's that. Do you know what I thought. Only six months later that the whole thing was a fluke. It was a fluke. I got the brain. The Thousand Bucks Fluke. I hire the right. People is a fluke. I opened the right offices was a fluke. I was in the right neighborhoods. It was a fluke promoted. The right people put my confidence in those people took my conference away from the wrong people. It was a fluke that I was able to fight my competitors and win the number one market position. Ole Boy Network going against me. It was all even lawsuits. Were fluke that I want crazy. You would stand there and say to me you barbara actually really believe that and I could honest to God on a stack of Bibles. Say I did believe it and you know what was really missing. I wasn't working. I had not worked for six months. I didn't know what I wanted to do is myself idleness. Or lack of one hundred and fifty percent effort always has doubt creep in. So no that that's your mo every time you have doubt work a little harder even if it's for two days three days or week or month whatever just a barrel through it so there's no room for the doubt but the minute you call me up in two years and say guess what I've arrived. I have no doubt I know me as as I am. I'm going to tell you you're not gonNA do well anymore. That's the way it is. Don't go why it's like. The curse of being competent is self doubt because competence rides on your own self doubt. Does that make sense at dies? Yeah it's like if you don't die yourself anymore you come complacent not even too complacent but just the edges off. It's the edge. You doubt that makes your performance in anything you do so I want you to call year from now and say Hey Barbara I have a problem. I'm doubting myself. I have imposter syndrome. We're going to say good for you. Keep it up okay. Okay yeah no year in a privileged club. I'm in it with you. Everyone I know who's been enormously successful. Not Just Women. I think they suffer from it more but men as well suffer from the syndrome. It wouldn't have a name like a syndrome if it was a common not real but I'm happy. Feel it thank you pretend you believe Al CAPP. Good luck to take you Barbara. I'm Mike Okay..

It's definitely survival. Cooking ratcheted up several levels of just making things that I can do on default but on before I got sick and made a big batch of roasted Kubota squash soup and I had I did it. My parents were in town and my dad wanted to go out to phoenix ill and visit his cousin and his cousin's wife and the my cousin's wife I've had recently broken her kneecap which is terrible and so she had just at surgery and she was in bed and recovering and so I wanted to make something that I that they could. My Dad could take out there for dinner that night and then they could also make enough that they could have sticks container in the fridge or the freezer in later on as well for one second though just to maybe administered littlest bit of tough love.

Well you know what I decided incident of you know. There's so much heavy stuff in the news about food. Why not make it something fun? And so I was flipping through The enquirer. I'm still getting a hard copy of the newspaper and there was this thing about how at the farm show this year And for those of you who don't want mental Vania Pennsylvania farm show happens in in January every year. We don't have a summertime state fair. This is our version of the state fair and it happens Out Sort of in the middle of the state in two mentions it can big convention is on our I used to go do canning.

Chance that Non Philadelphia locals don't know what do you think. Thank you think everyone knows grady. At this point I chance that they might not know. Gritty Gritty has gotten a lot of national attention. He is the what do you call it. A mascot of of the flyers know yet the ask the flare so but he's definitely transcended the sports world. He's like a big orange ferry the mascot whose weird and funny and At first there was like a knee-jerk negative reaction to him but then all Philadelphia Adelphia and I dare say. The world has since rallied and now gritty has become like an icon of the city. Well what's funny too. Is that yet. When it was first introduced everything was it's like with with? What is this thing? Why Grady like with what is it? And then as soon as the rest of the nation and country started to pick on gritty and be like this is the dumbest mascot over Philadelphia rallied around him instantly and embraced him now. Gritty I think is yeah. It's like oh he's iconic. He is like a muppet version in Philly You know hockey player. I will put links to his Social media handles in the comments. It's in the post for the show. He's very fun to watch on social media Yeah but the butter so gritty has been now memorialize that commemorate it in. He's still with us.

Well apparently drake is getting into a new business venture and you might be interested in it. He sending Suk's of flowers to people letting them know about his new more life growth company which is all about weed so drake is getting into the. We'd this makes sense. Did it seemed to be the business to get into to really does if I had some investment money I might do it myself. James Charles we know. He's a big youtuber right. All kinds of makeup stuff are dropped him. Drop them good for you on follow there you go well. A lot of people freaked out yesterday when his Youtube Channel disappeared apparently was just the bug. It's back there was a glitch. Don't worry James Charles's back and doing makeup. We talked about this a little bit earlier but Chris Brown had a yard sale yesterday and the cops did show up because one of his neighbors reported him before it even started. His neighbors. Don't like him very much. Obviously we know for this and the cops showed up but nothing really bad happened. They said that he was trying to sell things that were not part of his property was bringing stuff into like have a little flea market either way. The cars that were parked worked outside his yard. Sale yesterday Lamborghinis Sane. Those people aren't buying stuff at a yard sale. But they showed up. Also Whitney Houston's longtime mm friend Robyn Crawford has a new book coming out where she says No. We were just friends. We were actually lovers and it took me a lot of energy to stay that way that we're lovers the word she see says that Whitney called it off because back in the day when they had their affair going on what he thought it would really ruin her life and make their lives a lot harder because of the industry. Okay so Whitney Houston her. Her career of course of from the eighties into the nineties was huge. Huge huge and it was just sort of understood by a lot of people in the business that she was dating her her friend but no one talked about it. It is really shows you how different things were then and now no holds back. Everybody rumor about anyone you tournament now right back then we just left it alone. We didn't make a big deal out of it. Yeah I don't think it is a big deal but apparently it was big enough deal that now. There's a book coming out what she's GonNa talk all about it. So so we'll get that info soon creepy story from Ti. Apparently he takes his eighteen year old daughter to the gynecologist every year. Just to make sure she's still virgin. How long is that GONNA go on? She's a legal legal adult at this point. I'm not encouraging premarital sex. I'm just saying that super creepy of him. If my dad did that I don't even know I would have a heart attack super creepy. He wants to make sure her hymen is in tech. It's it's one thing if a parent wants to drug test a kid. It's another thing to take him to the doctor and get a high right and I mean what if she does. Isn't that encouraging her to not tell him things and be terrified. Lied because you'RE GONNA super controlling father parents. I know this is part of the reason. Don Zena apparently grants more make a wishes than any other celebrity. He's done over for six hundred and he says don't expect me stop anytime soon because I absolutely love it and I will drop. Whatever I'm doing to make a child's day we were talking about squashed beefs Bella Hadid and Selena Gomez Gomez following each other again on instagram? After apparently they stopped following each other. Once they both were dating the weekend he broke up with Bella. Hadid got with Selena. Broke up with Selena. Got Back with Bella. He's with neither now and they follow each other Gandhi and probably. I just put the I put thought into it thinking. Who am I having a beef with and I really should talk to again? I can't think of anyone. Is there someone you can re remind me. Tell me out loud. You're having a beef with a beef is a mutual. They have a problem with me. I have a problem with them so mutual. That's the tough part because I feel like a lot of times we have beef with people who don't have a beef with us. They just did something. They're supposed to be totally oblivious holding this flame elaine like eight to one sided. BBV'S ONE-SIDED BELIEVE I've got a one sided beef with somebody who we all know. And I just but I have no no in ten on working it out with that person zero whatsoever and what did we watch it on. TV TV tonight. Thursday night football. You have the raiders and the chargers. I'm watching the Lorena. BOBBITT DOCU series on Amazon on prime and the devil. Next door on Netflix is fascinating excellent. Thank you gone Danielle how are you doing. I'm good. How are you doing very well? So who are you beefing keeping with. Tell tell me the story I am with. My sister-in-law was the last time you talked to your sister in law over five years. That's taste now is she. Beefing back I mean. Does she have a problem with you as you have a problem with her I confronted her about it and she. He pretty much denied everything. So I mean I I just have absolutely nothing to say to her. because she won't admit what she basically tried to ruin my marriage with my husband telling him back I was cheating on him. I was going around behind his back. Which is absolutely Louis not true and she knew that that was like his hot button but that was what it would take to get him to leave me and luckily he? He chose to believe me. And I mean I hear every two weeks at At his family nine and we have yet to speak in five years. Wow now it so this is your sister-in-law. This is okay so again set up the Senate the TR- The family tree here. She's married to your brother. She is married into my bro- my my husband's okay. Okay Wow yeah so do you think. Do you think it's time to move on or is this. Is this a beef that just I just can't be on beefed. What's the word I'm booth beefed like what do you think I'll tell you If she she would just say she's sorry. I would gladly 'cause we both have children around the same age and I mean they play with each other. You know At the family night the whole family know that you guys are in the situation absolutely. Yeah so it's Kinda weird for everyone I don't know but she's right. That's the whole thing. Is that if the person that I have with it he would say. I'm sorry I realized that I was wrong and I wasn't nice then I would get over it. But he's never gonna say that so there's never gonNA GONNA be over right. Does she still does your sister in law firmly still believe that you cheated on your husband and that you should have been called out you you know I I don't really know I mean she's trying to let it go so I mean I guess I mean she's kind of proven herself to the entire family family to be pretty unstable so okay there you kind of weird about this. It seems like after five years the original beef is now a different beef. Oh Yeah it was anger and it was being very upset five years ago and now it's just like I just don't want anything to do with them. Well aged beef as well aged beef it is i. I don't know I guess this is a situation where there probably isn't an end to this. If he's always going to be like tests and I also want to know what was the what started all of it. Why didn't she like you in the first place? What did you do well? Yeah why did she have a problem with this. Is like the people like that all right. Well Good luck with that Daniel. This is a car we cannot pull out of the mud. I wish I wish I could good here. I let me get Cambria. unsquashed able you're right. Hello is this camry. Yeah so you had be someone for three years that you'd never talk to them again and it was like really ugly but now you guys are your cool. Yeah we're like great friends. She's my boss actually and I I feel like I can talk about anything to like I have in. My phone is like mom honestly she. She's been life changing for me. Ever since I came back to her honestly we had a falling out two years ago and we don't really even remember what it was about. We just finally met back up at A. We're we're Horse trainers together. So we back up later on and Yeah she's changed my life better on look at that so there is the fact that you guys had such a serious sloppy fight and you don't even even remember why yeah. Yeah for sure there you go. I think if you don't remember why then you should squash it but if you have a vivid memory about this is why you upset me and I can't get over it like myself right that it should be allowed to continue. I mean we did. We really did but honestly lear on we realized that there's really. Yeah no point in holding a grudge about it so yeah frog the person I have a beef with. I found that a lot of other people don't like him and they have within two. So then that makes ah verifies that. I don't like him and that other people don't like him so then therefore I'm right by now. I think nobody else else likes him. Reason yeah poor guy. I'm always the Guy who always preferred that people everyone else hates. Oh don't do that. For instance I love I love. I'm the only one that Likes Aka. Thanks for calling and so it's okay it's okay to. I mean who. Who was the first to stop opt? Stop the fight between you two Honestly I walked up to where show and I was like. Hey but she was always really great about whenever ever we met up at horse shows. You know it'd be like hey hope everything's going good and the three years it was kind of. We just weren't talking. It was just a mutual agreement to not be in touch. Have to be tougher conversation. Hey why are we mad at each other or did you just let it go and move on. I walked up to her. I finally texted her one day and I apologize and I was like like. I'm so sorry for everything that happens and I really wish that I still had around. Then she was like come back and work for me I like to. That's cool. See happy ending their camry. Camry beef can be resolved or dissolved and I love that we had beef but you work with horses. There's some weird creepy the thing going on there. Thanks for calling camry. Yeah I think so much now yes I have a beef. Actually it's one sided and it's a beef toward me. I would like to squash it with an ex boyfriend of mine. I wish that we could just be friends and be cool and like a good place but hey hey what's going on..

"Now we're good with the TACO bell. Bong there's the ball apparently when you turn on this new xbox this limited as in the X. box it has the ball it has the ball. Oh ooh not the first time someone next books anyway so thanks to our partner Taco Bell. Enter now ELVIS DURAN DOT COM. What's scary my general rule is to if you can't have a general rule? I think only get some fast food somewhere park the car and go in because I do. I think you tend to get better service in a face to face situation versus the drive thru. Because there's more I contact. They have to spend time with you. You're in the in person you've been thinking it through. Just throw stuff in the bag where you're gonNA drive through and then you leave and then you halfway down the road and then there's not. I feel good with the drive through experiences. Well why why. I never want to get out of the car and going my favorite things the starbucks drive through. Because you know they have starbucks drive through some cities. Sometimes you'll see a lie down the street of cars and and you'll look inside and not one person one person's at the counter. Everyone's in such a hurry that they get in a long line genius. All right Yes straight now back to a gun he was saying about the sauces. I've never experienced that at Taco bell but there are some fast food restaurants where they are so stingy with their sauces and ketchup packets. It's like it's it's not that expensive winsome. Just give me hampel and large fries. They'll give you one ketchup penalties. Those things add up to you own your chain of restaurants. How how seriously you know? I'm going to ask for more than one ketchup packet. Who can eat an entire large fries with one sauce shaming and? It's not okay so usually amy. Yeah I need more sauce covering stingy. All right all the places you bitch conduct. I'm economists Queens. I'm with you all right. Of course Daniel is out with her family. Today and Love You Danielle in Gandhi sitting in with some entertainment news. What's going on Gandhi? Well we you talked about this yesterday and thought what could possibly go wrong. Chris Brown decided to have a yard sale and his house. That was so weird watching that on the news last night it was and of course the cops ended up showing up now. Chris Brown's team some of them are saying it was a little harassing. The cops are saying no of complaint was actually filed before this thing even got underway. People were saying he was bringing stuff onto his property to you sell and apparently you're only allowed to sell the things from your home so there was a little bit of back and forth. But everything's okay. Nobody got hurt a flea market. Basically and we've been hearing rumors about this one for a while now. There's a little bit of confirmation from Whitney Houston's longtime friend Robyn Crawford did you see this. She says that the two of them did have a deeper relationship ship. The actual wording is that they were lovers but will feel about that. You hate the word lover. I'm telling you being in the business back then. It was just sort of known that Whitney Houston was into an women. I never knew that this is all new to me so interesting. But she's coming out with a memoir. Tell all about all of this stuff and she said that Whitney told her it would make both of their lives more difficult if it ever came out so they kind of kept it under wraps because of that this is a super story about super creepy story about Ti. have any of you seen. Yeah he's getting a lot of flack for this by the way. I'm one who never pays attention to anything going on pop culture. I'm on every story that you have to really are. I love this guy back to you. So apparently said that he takes his eighteen year old daughter to the gynecologist every year. To make sure her virginity is still intact so he's checking deceive seve physically. She's in town right so apparently he wants to know if the hymen has been broken. It's so weird on so many levels because one that can happen without you losing your virginity to let me tell you how mortified certified I would be if my dad had to come to the gynecologist. Me I just feel like it's very strange. But he says that that's how their relationship works. He's doing this double standard with men and women. Yeah Yeah it's like guys. We don't have a hymen you know even though you know if if a woman loses her hymen it does not mean she's had intercourse it. It doesn't that's not a hundred percent what it mean. No but it'd be a horse rider gymnast. You could have gotten a fighting. Gotten hurt like there's all kinds of stuff that can happen or you could have had intercourse. I mean the thing is when your a father wants to take you to the doctor to check you out. I'd be like Oh God k creepy. I mean at the very least if you're really cheap tags like that. Your mom can't go scared. You still have your hyman. No no never did okay. No I lost it okay. And of course the wording horseback right Elliott took the opportunity to call him out for being creepy and she said he's a control freak and he controls all women in his life. This is just another example of that John. Cena who we all love apparently granted more make a wishes than any other celebrity liberty in history. He's granted six hundred so far over the past twenty years. Yeah he started in two thousand and two. And you said he's down drop whatever he's doing to make a child's Day and that's why Oh everybody loves him because he's great and finally Selena Gomez and Bella Hadid apparently have ended their feud they started to unfold each other back. When Selena started dating the weekend? We know delegated the weekend I but now it looks like they've mended fences because they've Refala until their own. The Graham. I love that people pay attention people paying attention these so fate tension now that that follow tab isn't there. I don't even know how there are paying off the other day we found out that Miley Cyrus Liam Hemsworth are not following each other. They've dropped each other. I think the follow APP is the worst thing in in the world. I absolutely hate it because I'm hostage held hostage by a few people because I know that they have it but I don't WanNa follow anymore. You know what I tell you what we do. I mean coming up. I want to talk about this on. follow-up brody he has brody like every single person that drops brody he knows and he notifies some of them and look it would drive me it would drive me bonkers absolutely keeping up with the people who the following me I can't I would never wanNA think about it. there was that in. Oh feud ending. Feuds I think the fact that Selena Gomez mm-hmm as an which had he had to eat Bella Hadid. They've ended their feud. Yep I think we should have national in that few day. Oh you know what I'm saying. I'm not big enough of a person we're thinking about who you're having a feud with maybe a consider dropping this food. We got the news the other day that Wendy Williams and Charlemagne the God their feud is over. Oh that's good. I am always very happy to see other. People end feuds but then when I think about the feuds in my life and being that bigger person than ending it I'm like I don't have to sometimes sometimes you're not gonna ever drop drop feud because they just did something that you cannot forgive. Yes I was gonNA talk to Erin. Hey Erin Hey guys. Good Morning. Hillary renewed okay so you had an xbox story about What when you were high? You're playing xbox and Y. Yeah so you guys are talking about Xbox and he made the joke about having the bonkers. I I was a few years ago I was playing xbox angle some cited and then you know we smoked I kept playing and then I forgot that it was actually a game and I thought I was in the game and I was playing and I was so into it and my character died and then I started freaking out. I started crying. You can make what I actually thought is leaving smoking. Yes dusted your weed man You know you're not in the game right on my but I just waited. You know you're not helping out her case for legalizing it. Yeah Yeah because you know like you said it was illegal for want legal snowboard about it. Yeah it was at least regulated. Lewin me smoking extra extra unleaded whatever. We'll look good for you Erin. I'm did but you did survive survive and you and of your xbox whole if you're good fortunately on my way work good Erin thanks for sharing. We love a good while playing xbox story they last night after the Anthony Romo show. We met a listener out front. Did I think we we did share something with her. Didn't we recall. That sounds about right. You have always as it was happening. Other listeners approached to take photo as somebody was exhaling. This this girl this girl ran up to Gotti Cardi so nice to meet you. Johnny turned around and looked. It's nice to meet you. And when she said that smoke came out of her mouth the fire breathing dragon. Well hello dear friend. Sounds like my line. I use what I want to get out of something that like did you you do that in my remember doing that. It does sound like something I could say side on now. My favorite excuse remember from Bell John Values Dork his favorite critics. Here's a friend of his was caught in bed with a woman and her husband came home and she looked up hitter. This isn't what you think you see the processing it incorrect. What you see not happen? I'm not having sex with this man right now walks like it but I'm not and what's scary is reflecting on the last time I took an edible. I remember I was a conversation with somebody. Somebody who should never get high scores one power station with somebody that all of a suddenly had this out of body experience where my head was floating away like a balloon and I was watching myself. Look down on me talking to this person and I'm like what the Halloween even saying that crazy did you see. Didn't you see the macy's Thanksgiving Day parade last year. Scary close down but it was floating down the street sitting here. People are like running under his head with wires. All Hey eating the Kit Kat. I'm sitting there in the sky staring at myself. Okay like you said some people should never get high. I again wonder what it was laced with. Every time he got high he spoke with a British accent. Any couldn't stop hit this button. Some people shouldn't.
"squash" Discussed on Plantrama
"For those people who have vegetable gardens <hes> later in august at this time of year. It's often time of sadness and disappointment. Oh and the reason is they started harvesting their summer squash or zucchini early in the season and and they were all excited and then in august the plants collapse and they feel cheated. You know that that they they didn't have a crop all summer long and i understand why they feel cheated and these are plans to take up a lot of space. So you want a good return. You know for your constant harvesting and and <hes> dinner every other day or whatever so so. Let's talk a little bit about the two main reasons that people squash plants will collapse in august is usually usually when it happens and they are the squash vine borer and powdery mildew. Yeah those are the two most common reasons that people will have their squash suddenly collapsed and let's start out with the border have you have you experienced squash vine borer ellen. I have not personally finally experienced squash vine borer because i have never personally grown squash mom. It's not something that i have space for seriously my garden is tiny but but i have seen plants that were devastated by squash vine borer and it's it is truly heartbreaking because you put your heart and soul and this plant looks beautiful and it's big and it's spreading all over the ground and then all of a sudden and there's nothing you can do about it because because those larva were actually inside the vines of the squash destroying the vascular tissue and when they emerge that plan is doomed. There's just nothing you can do about it at that stage well. Here's the thing if you and let's talk first about the symptom of squash fan board the plan will one one sort of area of the plant one vine of the plant will collapse as if it's thirsty and you think and you think i i just watered and so you'll put water on in that won't revive the plant t._i. Because it's not thirsty it's collapsing because that larva has has eaten into the vine and collapsed you know so the divine isn't getting water because the larva has eaten the tissue <hes> at that i point what people do what if you catch it right away right when the when first collapses if you pick up the vine and you find the place that the boar went in and you carefully slit the vine and locate the borer stab it with your knife you know cabinet. Get your revenge. Kill the boar and then take that vine and bury it including the wounded wounded part that you just slid open in the soil and cover it up and water it well. I would say about fifty percent of the time that vine will route. They're really and recover. I was sure you're going to say cut you. Toss away that part of the vine but you're saying it will recover if if you do the surgery and kill the borer and bury it and water it it can recover. I'd say fifty percent of the time now if you don't catch it right away if you know you haven't been in your garden for four days and it's completely collapsed and you know so that it the tissues are just look like they've been wilted for too long then that's not going to happen okay so in that case you cut it off and you dispose of it including the borer. Hopefully the borer is still in there. The larva still in there and it hasn't hatched out. Let's let's clarify for people who may not know this. The avert borer is is the actual larval stage of a moth show for people who don't understand the life cycle the moth lays its eggs on the plant and the larva when it hatches bores into the vine eats tissue and that's what causes the collapse there and the moth by the way looks a little bit like a wasp so it's not a moth like you know with the big quite wing or what what we normally think of. It is a moth but it looks a little bit like a wasp. Most people never see it and we just don't notice it so so there are a few ways that you can come back squash find bore the first is the old farmer armor cure which is put on long sleeves because squash fines prickly and oh they're really quickly and long pants and garden gloves jobs and you go out on a frequent basis like every day and you pick up the squash vines and you'll look for the egg the eggs on the bottom side of the vines and when you see any eggs you take your finger with the gloves and you scrape them off and you squash wash them or put them into a little thing of oil or otherwise dispose of them and the eggs are pretty easy to see aren't they because they're usually orange or sometimes kind of reddish yup easy to spot against the plant tissue. They do stand out. Yes the other thing that you can do is to pick those fines up fairly early frequently and spray spinach sad on the bottom of the vines right so that when the egg so that if an egg is laid that you are not on top of when the larva starts to eat into the vine it injustice spin a sad which will kill it. He may kill the boar killed when you do spray. The spinach sat on the bottom of the vine. You don't want to be spraying. The flowers flowers where bees are foraging. You don't want to hit bees with wet spin assad. It's not an issue after it dries but a wet spinning sad is is not good for bees so you went to avoid spraying the bees with it with anything really so remember what seattle said earlier the pollination of these plants when the beezer most active is usually early in the day so if you are going to spray your vines why not make that be something that you do at the end of the day right before your evening. I've finished my work in the garden cocktail. That's a good would call the other way that i have found. It's successful to repel squash behind bars is by starting early on when the plants are young a dust the ground around the plant and the top of the vine with wood ashes now now since i <hes> heat a house with wood we have plenty of wood ashes so that's not a problem for us and basically by doing that the moth breath does not want to land on the wood ashes and crawl through the wood ashes to lay its egg underneath. What does the moth have against against wood ashes. I don't know and i haven't asked so <hes> basically that has worked for us now. The downside side of that is that if you have a small garden and you are planting your squash in the same place every year that can raise the ph of your soil because what ashes do make soil more alkaline and so over time you can get your soil <hes> the ph is going to be a little too high and you'll either need to stop using the word ashes for awhile or start counteracting that what sulfur and or you could just rotate your crops. Couldn't you or you can rotate your crops to different areas. That's right what about this. I read that that one thing you could do is you could plant a second round of squash plants in early july because the adults have mostly finished laying their eggs eggs by then. Do you think that's true. Is that something you would advise. I i would say it depends on where you're growing squash in terms of you know but usually the squash bind. Nine borer is most active in the middle of the summer so whatever that is for you for some people. The middle of the summer is actually a junior for some people later if you till your garden where the squash was in the fall that can expose pupa to the winter weather so that can n._b._c. Something that contributes to keeping these in check <hes> secondly always removed take that collapsed vine away because if there are are still <hes> eggs or or the larva inside a squash find you want to get it out of your garden so that you don't encourage it to be present isn't for next year yeah yeah you don't wanna let it over winter and i could use that as a really convenient transition into the powdery mildew idea because okay squashes occur kurban like melons cucumbers and all of these plants are often affected by powdery mildew. They just are susceptible to it and if you have powdery mildew in your garden one of the things you do need to do at the end of the growing season is dispose of all that infected foliage and not put it in your compost pile because those spores can over winter. If it's warm enough in fact i would say don't wait till the end of the season. You've got powdery mildew the worst if a if a leaf is collapsing lapsing from powdery mildew cut it out and get it out of the garden right away case that can be a way of prolonging your squash harvest. Yeah is is this getting rid of those leaves now. The way that we control powdery mildew ellen is that we start spraying with an organic funchess side we we typically will use something that's bacterial based but there are also fund your sides you can buy at your garden center that are based aced on something similar to baking soda bicarbonate right and and so something like green cure for example but you want to start spraying your squash early before it gets mildew and you want to continue that spraying <hes> <hes> regularly through the summer and you went to spray the stems the underside of the leaves and the top of the leaves. You can't just give it a quick topcoat hop coat. That's not going to solve your problem and actually we. We're trying to prevent the problem in the first place not just solve the problem exactly you're trying to suppress it and and that's what these organic fungicides stew is. They suppress the mildew.

"Plants. What's today. We're talking about summer. Squash winter squash and eating splits flowers. It's an all splash. Well not it quite often. We'll start out with what's for dinner and ellen what's for dinner. I squash flowers. I love eating squash flowers and there's so many different ways you can eat them to <hes> they're. They're beautiful to look at their delicate surprising their feast for the eyes as well as the stomach and they taste very good so what's not to to like about eating squash flowers. Let's start out by explaining to people that um first of all summer. Squash and winter squash have two different types of flowers male and female right. That's right they do yeah and so if you want your female flowers to go ahead and produce squash quash but you also want flowers to eat then the trick of course is to pick the male flowers and what i would do since most squash plants <hes> get fertilize the female flowers get fertilized in the morning right then you would want to go out in the late morning morning like around ten or eleven to pick the male flowers to eat them and the male flowers are usually on slightly slightly longer stems and there's no swollen area beneath the stem that looks like it's going to turn into a squash yeah and we might even be able to provide photos of a male and female squash flower on our website to help people along with that because i know it can be confusing if you haven't really seen this this before so most squash flowers are fertilized in the morning is that because that's when the bees are buzzing about in the pollinators are doing their thing. It's partly because that's twin. Pollinators are their most active. That's true yes but also what the squash plants do is that they're they're flowers. Tend to a close around midday so that's the window that for whatever reason the squash plant has you know <hes> i involved to have that window for fertilization which which is why you know for people who are having trouble with pollination of their squash they should be sure that they are not watering during that period in the morning and you know frequently and keeping the bees away for example yeah yeah because that's that's going to be counterproductive. As far as i'm concerned so here's a question. What's your favorite way to eat squash flowers. I i'm sure you don't have just one on but but let's start with your favorite i have i guess i would say i have two favorite telling the go in two different directions one is that i take the the the current vegetable does your whatever i've got in the garden and i chop it up find with herbs and i usually like to add a little bit of goat cheese es and then i stopped them with that and i tied them with a chives. Oh that's so cute i could just career and it is it's pretty darn adorable so that's one way but the other thing that i like to do is to dip those squash flowers in egg and then in either very fine breadcrumbs or flour and either baked them or fry them in oil oil and then you use those instead of meat like in a taco or on a salad or in lasagna or wherever you might right if you're a meat eater in dishes that you might have meat in that makes a great meat substitute that breaded cutlet of squash flower to be honest with you. I i use them in the same two ways with some variation i do the the the dipping in the egg and the deep frying and just eat them plain like that yeah. I just think they're delicious just that way. I'm also when i'm stuffing them. Don't forget take out. These are going to be the male flowers so you wanna take out the statements. If you're going to twist those out to create that vessel that you can stuff and one one thing that i learned to do in greece is to stuff them with cheese and sauteed onions and raw rice. Remember we were talking about stuffing vegetables last time yeah and then you twist them shot tie them up with your child. I love that idea and you cook them in broth in the oven and the rice cooks hooks and it's it's really surprising little packet of delicious joy. I am so gonna try that. That sounds sounds wonderful. Oh all right well. Squash flowers rate whether you're stuffing them frying them baking them. It's it's another treat.
