Should Women and Men Handle Money Differently?
"So first of all. Let's talk about how you get money in the first place and that is earn it right and according to the pew research center Women earned eighty five percent of what men earned in two thousand eighteen That pay gap is shrinking Particularly for younger workers which is a positive trend but that is still a meaningful hurdle to overcome. The pay. Gap is partly due to to work history. You know like having kids great you know. But as we mentioned with the fidelity study earlier taking time off to have quetta's like it often leads to job offers in worse income prospects not to mention the years of not generating any income which often reflects years of not investing in a workplace retirement account in particular. If there's a match there right and those are some big disadvantages to overcome yell like you said at the beginning matt that stat also reflects some structural issues when it comes to male and female pay. But here's another thing to matt When we're talking about pay women are actually often averse to asking for more money than their male counterparts. There was a survey from ron saad. Last year the found that sixty percent of women have never negotiated with employer. Overpay women are also more likely to stay at a lower wage job to according to The personal finance web site the balance. And that's not good right because even just a small bump in pay with a new employer or in a job that been in for years can have just a massive impact on your ability to earn more throughout the years and then also save more for retirement. So i think of all of the things in this episode where we see. Maybe you know women as sex falling short. It is in in the ability to ask for more at knowing what they're worth again. This is another instance where you might be listening and you're thinking i've never had a problem negotiating a race like i've never had a problem asking for more money so again. It's important to keep in mind that though the research shows us like we know any totally doesn't apply to everyone. I'm specifically thinking of two conversations with Kirstin and julian saunders. The couple behind rich and regular that was episode. Eighty six and julianne was just bragging. About how great pearson is at negotiating. Evidently she's just like the queen negotiating more. Pay if you had to listen to that upset go back and listen to that one. Is that regardless of your gender. Earning more it's just so important right and all of us could stand to our abilities on that front And we've had lots of different conversations on the show that specifically cover you know not just stories of individuals negotiating but just how to go about doing that. I'm of Ramiz sadie that was Backing up said one ten and he outlined a great process a great method You know when it comes to wanting to up your salary. You know what steps you need to take. In order to negotiate a solid race gam thinking to matt had far new darabi on the show. She is just awesome personal finance expert and at the same time. She is someone who has made a killing as a small business owner. She knows her worth. she knows. how to negotiate. Yes so like you said there are many women out. there are crushing it. Who don't have a problem and asking for what they're worth. Who don't have a problem asking for a raise. It's just when you read those statistics. There are obviously a number of women who do though. And i wanna see. That number changed for the benefit of women as a whole absolutely. Let's about spending to do women spend more. That's an interesting question. My wife personally met hates to shop. I really. She just defies the stereotypes. And actually i don't know i don't mind shopping. A little bit roles are a little bit reverse exactly but there was a study by the wharton school of business that found that women are more likely to view shopping as a recreational activity. My mom definitely fits that bill Most men wanna leave the store with their purchases quickly as possible but even though women enjoy shopping more it turns out men still spend more than women in a typical year so while men might not enjoy the process of shopping as much. They still shopping. Just from a utilitarian standpoint sure yeah also that increase spending with the stats as well. There's there's a survey from wallet hub earlier this year. They showed that men are more likely to max out a credit card. Women are apparently seven percent less likely than men to have maxed out credit card at least once in so while women they might enjoy the shopping experience. More than men do a lot of different stats. Show that women are more cost conscious. They're more likely to shop at alice. Stores more likely to to wait till something they want is actually on sale The store brands more than men. And so you know when it comes to spending this this is definitely a win in this category for sure And so i i of see this as a call to min to stop spending so much money on neighboring items fan. Yeah i feel like. I'm totally guilty of this. I totally fall into the study. I don't like to go looking for the best deal. I do because i'm spending less but like i'll look at maybe two or three different sites and then i just purchase right whereas for you like i feel you are so good at hunting and making sure you're keeping your eyes on the best deals out there making sure that you're spending the the least amount of money possible. I feel that's something that we all need to make sure that we're doing right. And so you know regardless of who you are. We should all work to just become a little more conscious and how it is that we spend our money. I gotta say mets. I don't care whether you're man or woman but store brands should be high on your list because they're going to save you a ton of money it's just like in savings when you go for the storebrand over the name brand equivalent unless it's your craft beer equivalent And you're wanting to spend a little bit more on the because it makes you feel nice. Can't name brand everything though. I think i think sometimes that's a tendency here. Maybe that men have The men just gravitate towards the name brand no matter what it is without thinking about it and that's where we need to shake things up right and we we need to consider storebrand's more frequently also too. I think we've talked about this. The quality of store brand items has gone up a whole lot in recent years. Her kirkland signature brag. There's other ones too man. Like target has some great Store brands that are better than their name brand equivalent. Sometimes so yeah. It's not just costco yeah costco rockstar Let's see let's talk about saving as well. There's more good news here. It turns out that the the savings rate for women is actually higher than their male counterparts. They save a higher percentage of their pay. They spend less of what they bring in and much of. That is due to the more frugal. Tendencies that we just highlighted when we talked about spending differences but even the women are saving a higher percentage of their income on average. They've actually got less than thirty percent of what men have in savings accounts according to data from the federal reserve from a few years ago That is likely due to the fact that overall they're still making less like we discussed earlier which means a smaller amounts of money saved overall. Yeah one of the reasons. Women have a higher savings rate as well Is that according to a survey by. Us bank women of all ages value financial security more than men do. But here's the thing than that. Focus on financial. Security can often backfire. If you keep more of your overall assets and savings and cds instead of invested in the stock market right like savings for saving for long-term goals is really important but so is investing For the really long
30 Miles Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
"I. It's. From she wind binder DOT com. We have another wine review. This one's little different in kind of the same same time. It's from all. Three dollars and seventy five cents is fourteen, ninety nine. It's a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. THIRTY MILES NAPA Cabernet Sauvignon twenty-seven teen. Shot. I don't know about fifteen dollars for an all. Usually for a storebrand, they have some advantages in pricing. So a seven, nine nine. storebrand trader Joe's. Grocery store. No matter. Is probably equivalent to attend a twelve dollar one. And a regular basis just because there's no, there's no marketing there's no advertising. You know there's a lot less distribution costs. There's just those costs and the difference between a legitimate. Eight dollar wine and. Then twelve dollar one is usually significant. There's usually more. Wine production techniques taking place. You know the really inexpensive wines, they very simple productions it styles dot good and bad. But you like a little bit more involved production techniques, slow up extra money there for that, and you can get that at a lower price with storebrand. But a fifteen dollar naphtha cab. I expect a fifteen dollar. Any fifteen dollars ready to be pretty good. And the difference too in a fifty dollars to Cabraha. Twenty. Isn't all that much it's usually marketing. It's usually. More well-known winery. You know. Better better av a little higher status in a it's usually. This wine that much better. Sometimes, it's that much better but the fact. that. So little has it here to buy a fourteen, ninety nine. All, these Cabernet Sauvignon. Because what was actually? kind of bargain is, is it a Barton? Actually. It's a good wine I've been drinking. But the economics are cheap wine change go to fifteen bucks but here's the one thing the solar for me. All these nine, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, nine, champagne last year was one of the best wines I hadn't twenty nineteen and every sparkling wine had Susan I've got an answer to that and it's I haven't had a lot of. The website I love it bad some wines but none of them came close to that so far. So taking a chance on all be one. Hasn't been that much of a chance and this is really good. It's. Intense. It's got good flavor. Well, balanced nice wine. If you just want WanNa fifteen dollar one that I don't know it's actually a twenty one or twenty, three dollar one only perfect fifteen. All these polls, the trademark took their their brand names. You can tell trader Joe's wine to make support them which helps a little bit by going on the National Trade trademark registry. Will come. Lose the gadoe trademarks. You'll how if a whole nother story? But you gotTa know what direction that one came from. With all the owning the trademark. You don't nothing. But that means they also can. If the economics of the original deal change, they can go out and. Get a new producer. Whatever happens there they can still change. Even though I think was released twenty nineteen. Sit around while my all didn't have until recently. It's been around. There is there is A. Cabernet Sauvignon Glut Napa and Sonoma. Stuff. They had bumper crops for couple years in a row. And then Calvin nineteen pretty much shut down all the restaurants which are exactly where they were selling a great deal I. N. Cabernet, Sauvignon. And then big to do gatherings shutdown. People who are buying wine are not having people over that they don't know where they've been. So there's A. Glut been exasperated by what's going on. You'RE GONNA start seeing Cabernet Sauvignon. Selling. Cheap cheap earth GonNa see brand you've never heard before. And then they'll go away in two years come out because they can't just hold off the stuff backing here you're stacking up next year is release.
Deep Valley Red Blend 2018
"Day. From. Sheep flying, find it Ascom again. Today we have. Five ninety nine red blend from trader Joe's The teat. Surround Low Sarah. It goes by the name of. Deep Valley Red Wine Blend Mendocino twenty eight teams. Normally Five ninety nine red wine kinda scares me a little bit because. You expect a few things out of red wine some oak aging some. Just some general aging. There is no budget applied ninety wine and a white wine. A little bit different like a Soviet block, a young savvy blockers young. They just make it. Right -Chusetts fresh. Lines good there. It doesn't that doesn't need to cost a lot of money. Learn, you need to do a little bit too and so it's always a little bit scary but I think they spied it's actually a food. Wise. I think it does better. With burgers or like a steak burrito does. On its own and I'm fine with it not the most malicious wine ever taste taste fine. But it's you know it's pretty pretty good. It's made by one of the oldest wineries in Mendocino. If you ever want to know who makes these winds for trader Joe's or any other Any other store where they don't really tell you what's what? Trademark. Registry. Website you get in there within our. Trademark lackadaisical it has come up. But. That doesn't mean that's a one that winery comes up would ever make on their own these custom crush people trader Joe's goes down and says, I want a wine like this at this price. They think, yeah. Okay. We can do that but it might not be a wine that they would ever do on their own. So don't read too much into who makes other than if they make good quality wine. They're probably not skipping on the quality that. They held back. And that's that and this is. It's a good ninety, nine Tuesday night. Pizza, burgers. Fine for them is this really well. You Know Harry. You go in and out Burger, we don't have it ended up Burger Chicago. It picked this would go great with that. There's another thing another observation about trader Joe's wines, and here's a five, ninety, nine wine from a single Aba. Under ten dollars. Californian the label which means that the grapes come from all over. It comes from the North Coast Central. Coast Central Valley. and. That's usually because to make wine cheap you gotta have. A lot of it. You gotTa make. Five hundred thousand bottles. And these big wine corporations do that they'll have holdings everywhere and you know they own vineyards contractors everywhere. So to make the most of their money and utilize scrapes pick from all over but trader, Joe's isn't like. They, go to a single ABA. And you don't know out of this is a single vineyard wine but not that, and there are a lot of vineyards in. In the Mendocino but. You know usually when these cheaper the winds are the simpler things is way to happens. You know they're not be off. You've got to bring in grapes from twenty seven different. Vineyards that might happen but you gotta figure cheaper just to grab one or two. So. To storebrand. You get a much more exclusive line for cheaper price than you do in a retail line. But you don't really know what you're getting basically. You're taking a chance but you get these single ABA wines and he don't know who's making what where, when all the time. But. If you go the trademark website, find out who's doing at Subic meals. Usually go because a lot of times these people. Make. These winds for trader. Joe's whatever their own brand self, their thirty five forty dollars. Make wines I mean it's. Just happen to have some extra great somewhere getting their hands on something. And you know trader Joe's better for. So. There you go. You got the deep sally you red wine blend from. Five, ninety, nine crazy price. There is some. You know it's It's a twenty eight. So it's fairly young for Redwan. Super Young read one.
Peaks and Tides Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2018
"Stay home. Cheap wine fighter dot com summit again with another. Why Review. In kind of a companion podcast for wine picked up all. All he's been. Doing well lately and this one's called. Let me grab the bottle so I don't screw it up. Peaks in tied. Sonoma's coach Chardonnay Twenty, eight, eighteen. And peaks and tides kind of. Describes the SONOMA's coast. Ava that's. mainly. A Boutique area that specializes in Chardonnay and new are. It's up along the coast. It's In between coastal mountains it's cold. There's not a lot of huge vineyards in there. It's more boats tiki their commercial vineyards within a big. But it's. Really good growing area. And I want to a snow coast trade event a few years back. and kind of picked up gossip I. Think I would call it because it'd be wine reps and then there would be winemakers and they were kind of upset. That when the SONOMA's coast Aba was set, their boundaries are set up. Some of the bigger. Huge actually. Well established. Literally connected wineries and Wine Corpse. Kinda got the the boundaries moved to cover the Russian river eastward just to cover some of the bigger properties. And the guys kind of upset and I just noticed that Petitioned to have a western SONOMA'S COAST AV A. Now I don't know what the problem is because even the Russian river ones those are really high on liner isn't really good wines. I. Don't get what the problem is. You know maybe it's a small guy versus little guy I don't know. But, that's what they were doing and they were seemed to be all upset about it. So you know that's just gossip me sitting here with a glass by hand listening to winemaker stock. So this is a SONOMA's coast Chardonnay. If you check out your Google look. The the town in the back they said peaks and tides made it. I don't know if there is a pig's entites company, but you can figure out who the winemaker might or the liner or one of their entities might be. It's not a foolproof method of who the biggest Winery in town is, but it usually gives you a good clue. GonNa take a sip of this one. This is a really good nine, ninety, nine Chardonnay. It's got some oaken full Benatti huge amount. Let's got this kind of honey rounded thing going on it's got all sorts of flavors. I mean I got banana and pineapple. Meyer. Lemon and NAPA grapefruit and you've got on least salty thing. It's got some lemon. Vanilla cream. It tastes good. It smells great. It's got a great enrollment to I was Kinda digging that. So for ninety nine in any don't expect all these displays, these wines. So haphazardly that you you know. You don't have an expectation just by looking though this label and this line they also have a pretty good Cabernet. Sauvignon thing that I thought it's up. You know I'm not sure about that one. The packaging looks like it could be any kind of retail brand in back of genes fine. And it tastes good really good at for ten bucks and can delivers maybe over delivers. Ten Bucks will buy you a good Chardonnay out as ten twelve dollars you can you really, really good. But this is to in itself storebrand again, all these been kind of kick in some but I kind of liken it.
Augustinus Bader Cream and Acne
"I WanNa talk about your skin. Do you know how many listeners have dammed or emailed to make the very possible correlation between the Chin Zits that I've been complaining about for a month and the Agostino US batter rich cream that I've been putting on my face for the past month but didn't when you say they started before you got the the it's began before I got the cream right but new ones have emerged. You'll see this big one right here. There's there's another one next to it. I shall say I am starting my period okay so I do think that probably has something to do with it and I also pick them so they don't. Yell L. 'cause they're just so deliciously addictive yeah again it so. I don't know if there is a connection between the cream and the sits on my I chin listen. If you suggested to me you are not alone. There are many of you who have reached out and I appreciate it one person. I hate to say it but is is it. The boozy creamed the love our listeners I mean so you know lies detected there. Oh ooh it is apprecia- cranny Bucci cream and you have been putting it on your put on my face for a month and I have stopped this week. I lasted lasted a month. Okay and is the jar supposed to only last you a month. I believe so morning noon morning and night application. Do you have any left well. I can't tell because it's not a see-through can figure out how much I have left. I just have to keep pumping it out. I'm happy to hand it over to you. If you WANNA give it in a world I didn't dislike it. Yeah it. It fell. I got the rich if you're if you're in the market for Agostino Stina spader cream. I went with the rich Bader. I'll never get it right. I have such a thing with words. Why can't I ever learn them. Think Baba Okay Lab. Ah By my August Bader rich cream there we go I liked it. multiple people had said they went with the rich cream over the regular names so I did that. Maybe that was a mistake. It was very thick and heavy. I liked liked the application but had on you know. I wonder if this was not the best season to try the rich credo. I know it was summer. Maybe maybe I'll revisit it in January. Yeah you know we also live in a warm climate here around so this might not be might overkill it possibly but I do you love year round pouring oil onto my face right so and it's very dry here it is it is right dry so again it just did not. I didn't didn't I didn't have the experience of after a month like looking in the mirror and being like wow I am visibly plumper and my finer lines are reduced and really what it did was get me thinking and my thought is products are nice and they feel great and if you have something going on with your skin they could could quite help but I also think like more or less. It's all doing the same thing that's kind of where he landed. I it's fluffed me. More jaded in Terrell Valley Wild 'cause I love pudding now granted. Did I go to target yesterday yesterday and by the travel size grayson tonic line to try that out I did you did you did that. I'm still onboard but it was just kind of like they don't know there's no magic in a bottle That's just where I've landed. Now is thus the podcast and forever thirty five was goodbye. We we solved it. We did we like to say I just know it. Just kind of left me feeling like what's the if this works are. If somebody great like I've had friends who've been like this is the most magical thing I've ever put on my face well so I I do think that that raises in all seriousness I do that raises a good good point which is that there is no one size fits all solution exactly an in skin individual yes and also like so are emotional and psychological needs. It's totally and I think you have pretty uncomplicated skin. That is a great so it stands to reason that a lot of products would quote unquote work for you. I mean I shall say I have fine lines and nothing I've ever put on my face is ever reduced them which I'm also working on Kinda like okay yeah total. You know totally. That is my face yeah but it did just you know I tend to be the kind of person who like if a price tag is higher on something I immediately feel like it's better that is like a just a thing in my brain that has been that way my whole life you know like if I'm in a store I will by advil as opposed to the storebrand Ibuprofen which I have trained myself out of but you know like that just kind of I'm very susceptible to branding winging lane. I'm not proud of that. It's but it is it is the truth yeah so if someone's like here's this really fancy cream. I'm like this is the best so it's been a real journey.
Tylenol For Infants And Children Is The Same. Why Does 1 Cost 3 Times More?
"Support for this podcast and the following message come from mayo clinic if you're looking for answers no one else has been able to find, you know, where to go mayoclinic. More at mayo clinic dot org slash answers. Anybody who has a kid with a fever makes a discovery at the drugstore. There are two options for Tylenol one for infants one four children. They contain the same amount of medicine, but the infant version costs, three times more. Why would that be? Here's NPR's Selena Simmons Duffin turns out. There's a backstory for a long time. Infants Tylenol was stronger than the children's stuff. It was three times more concentrated. That's in my Hernandez of the university of Pittsburgh school of pharmacy. The thinking was, you don't want to give little babies, lots of liquid medicine and you can give them less if it stronger. Hence the cost difference, deprives per milliliter was five times higher, but there was a problem parents were making mistakes with dosing babies got sick and some even. Died. So at the urging of the food and Drug administration in twenty eleven Johnson and Johnson announced a change instance title is now offered in the same concentration as children's what the price is still different with Storebrand's of acetaminophen, it's the same story. The infant version is generally three times more than the one for children. I asked Johnson and Johnson, the maker of brand name Tylenol, why the company says the infant version comes in a sturdier bottle and has a syringe for accurate. Dosing the children's version only has a little plastic Cup in Hernandez isn't convinced by that. She says what's expensive and producing a drug like this is the active ingredient, not a piece of plastic. The cab, this was this eerie inch doesn't release plane, the price difference in my opinion. But Johnson and Johnson's explanation makes sense to Edgar daursky. He's a consumer advocate, and founder of the website, consumer world is an extra thing in the box and extra things usually cost money. He says. There's a convenience element here. Thank of, you know, a spray cleaner. You can buy the spray cleaner in the spray bottle, and that costs, little more money or you can buy the refill that gives you more ounces, but it doesn't have the sprayer on top. It's kind of the same concept. But this, of course, is not a spray cleaner, it's medicine for your baby. Parents can be sensitive to marketing, because the stakes are so high Dr Shaw at children's national in Washington DC, says when it comes to infant and children's acetaminophen, the most important thing is to get the dosing right? When you start doing more than recommended. There are serious side effects that can happen. So the bottom line know what you need if spending that extra couple of dollars for the syringe will help you get the dosing just right. Maybe the markup is worth it. Selena Simmons Duffin, NPR news.

"Tell us more is Shira over day, a technology columnist for Bloomberg opinion. You write about Amazon's private label brands and the challenge they present to national brands sold by Amazon. How is this different from a supermarket selling brand versus the national branch? Yeah. I think that's a good question. I think the natural the natural parallel is you, and I walk into WalMart or Kroger or some other big store, and you can see right next to Quaker Oats, there's the Storebrand oats. Right. And in the yogurt. I'll there might be WalMart or Kroger brand yogurt just next to the big name brands that we're used to the. Difference though when Amazon has its own versions of products is that it's trying to do two things it selling both kind of lower cost versions of familiar brands, just like, WalMart, and Kroger and other big store stew. And it's also trying to create these kind of higher end brands that it wants to become the nachos known for low prices, but have their own identity. So you can see Amazon brand of clothing and bedsheets and furniture that maybe people don't know Amazon, but that have higher profit margins for on itself because it can kind of cut out the middleman and sell its own brands and the difference between Amazon and even a powerful retail store, like WalMart is the Amazon knows so much about what people shop and our and look for online, and they have so much data on what people are interested in that. It gives them the power to. Kind of create their own brands in categories where it sees there's consumer interest or copy existing products. And I think that's causing a little bit of unease in the marketplace is that an unfair advantage. I think it is a little bit of an unfair advantage. And it's notable that European Union. Antitrust regulators are right now doing an inquiry. It's just kind of an open ended inquiry into Amazon's market power. And one thing they've asked market participants about is this issue about Amazon copying existing products further own store brands, they also can favor their own products in placement they care, and I think that's an interesting twist here as well. So if you do certain kinds of searches proxy searches on Amazon, I I mentioned one for solo cups, which is a disposable plastic Cup. So if you do that kind of search what I saw. Was there is a paid product placement. At the very top of the search results for either so low itself or another brand name like hefty below that you might see Amazon's own two different varieties of kind of solo Cup like store brands. And so what does shows you there is either Amazon is inserting its own products hype in those search results, or if your the brand name, and you wanna be visible in the top you have to pay Amazon for the privilege of people purchasing your product on Amazon Amazon wins both ways they? Wins either way. And again, there's an Instore parallel here to that. Again. This is not necessarily visible to most shoppers. But if you walk into a grocery store, the items you see visible in shelves and end caps. Right. This the end of the store aisles. Those products are often there because waste potato chips are Pepsi soda or whatever paid to be there. And so that's the the in-store version of the paid product placement that you see on Amazon how do the brands make it work to their advantage or lessen the disadvantage because they want to be on Amazon. Yes. And that's the advantage that Amazon has is that everybody wants to sell an Amazon because if you have a product, and it's not sold on Amazon, it might as well not exist that the vast majority of Americans start their consumer shopping online on Amazon Amazon is going to be something like half of all US dollars spent online this year. So. So Amazon is essential to shoppers and it's essential to any merchant with products to sell so it's unavoidable, and it's just this uneasy relationship at times between companies that have products to sell and Amazon itself. And again, it's not necessarily unusual that anybody that has an app, for example has an easy relationship with apple and Google because they're the by far the dominant distributors of apps. Right. So this is just the nature of commercial relationships. But it does give Amazon this somewhat unusual powerful position. Thanks.

Paper try the Storebrand anything and if you liked the store brand you're. Just going to save money going forward otherwise. Be prepared to pay more To give. You an idea how big the alternate, universe is distort brands there's a fast growing. Organization that I've talked about before This is called brand Louis and brand Lewis everything they sell is three dollars whatever it is pretty much it's three dollars and they make such a point out of. The fact that everything they sell is without a brand And I just love that They do that and they show you. Their bestsellers in every category So knowing that every time whatever you go to buy you know the. Price is the price is three bucks is their whole business model Michael is with us on the Clark Howard show Hello Michael How you doing great thank. You, Michael How. Can I. Serve So my question to you is I've heard you talk in the past about Situations I'm thinking about taking the Florida Spending some time for kicking a cruise and I'm going to be coming back from a different area than we're going, to go to the west coast initially gonna take a little cruise at a Miami. And probably come back home through. Miami I want to get to The Pensacola area so thinking about instead of taking a flight I was wondering. About driving somebody else's car What, kind of services would recommend to do that So that business has really Shrunken importance At one, time people let's say somebody was a snowbird and they lived regularly in the northeastern, mid west and they would go during the winter, to, Florida Arizona, southern. California whatever and they would hire somebody through a service to drive their car for them And that's what you're talking about right Yep exactly and there's almost no business like that anymore because now people are using these relocation services that put their. Car on a trailer and move, it this grew out of EBay. Motors Where people buy vehicles and they buy them across the country Lada dealers. Will shop for us vehicles for EBay Motors and so there's these individuals or small businesses. That relocate those vehicles so it's created scale where it's somebody doesn't have miles put on, their dominator they don't have to worry about somebody else driving their vehicle and they get it relocated so. If, you. Had asked me this question seven or eight years ago or longer ago I would have been able to tell you different services that would want. You to do that for them But it's just not, that common anymore and I'm okay I don't know of ones where you don't have to pay anything necessarily Okay. Would probably negate. The literal cost savings that would get from getting along the way played From either either location Florida Trying to save books here and there understood and there's a story CNBC did last, year The companies that actually do offer some of, these services and so if you if you were, to do a Google search or. Whatever search engine us and look for car driving service you'll see that article pop up I can't tell, you that any of these companies I see are great for you to sign up with but you can read how each of them works and see if you can be that needle in, a. Haystack, and. Find one. That would work for you to take down to the panhandle Florida okay perfect all right best of luck to you and you know every Year twice a year, the. Car, rental. Companies relocate. Their fleets to Florida are you familiar with, that Okay so and let me see is. It November December southbound maybe April may northbound you can rent a car. That you take one way they tend to charge you five dollars or so a day for car you're allowed to keep it up to, two weeks and you just have to dump it where, they want that. Car either in the fall leading into winter in Florida or in. The late spring headed back north and so you get all tra- cheap source of transportation that way but that's the only really, easy way I know to do the kind of. Thing you're talking about anymore Franklin's with us on the car. Coward show Hello Franklin Clark how are you great thank you Franklin hope. You're having a good day wonderful day here have a quick question I have taken over the years with home security and advise a number, of my friends who have done the same we're saving, money thank you. But we have a question concerning almo- butterfly I and I wanted. To take on it before I move forward and give it a try so for people are not aware Emma cells that started off just as a very affordable very reliable home or business phone service now offers a variety of things including two years ago they moved into home security systems now the butterfly fits right into that. Home security thing and it does something that is, somewhat controversial. Thing uses artificial? Intelligence. And facial, recognition. To be able to have somebody. Is on your. Premises and is picked up by the butterfly camera it's able to identify that they are someone who is recognized as living in the home. Or allowed in. The home. And or it will notice that there's somebody who the algorithm doesn't say is supposed to be there and alert you right away that there's. A potential intruder in your home That is the product you were talking about right Yes correct So it's a couple of, hundred dollars which is a lot more than a lot of the no frills security cameras you. Can have but the idea of it is that it gives you an additional layer of security if you wanna make sure that if you live in an area where you're worried about potential break ins or. Whatever, intruders The it will give you potentially that peace of mind okay Because I sorta. Sensors Could put on the windows and, thanks now that's the that's if you engage it with. The entire, security system so there's I would look at it this way that the butterfly isn't enhancement Sits on top of ood home security and it's part of what everybody is trying to do right now in this area with nest being involved and rain, is involved in all these companies are trying to have. Sophisticated home, security systems that mimic what the most sophisticated corporate security systems do Okay and so this is this is something. That you would be your early in the game within facial recognition artificial intelligence kind of component to security system Okay Or maybe I'll give it a. Try all. Right and if you, do please let us know what your experiences light so we can share that with others if you don't. Mind, absolutely will. Do thanks. Clark thank.
