Fresh update on "sylvia" discussed on The DeMaio Report with Carl DeMaio and Lou Penrose
"Noory with you with psychic Bob Hickman. We're going to take calls with Bob. Next hour year on coast to coast. Am Bob one of your books. Weegee mysteries. The Spirit board. Sansa's Tell me your involvement with the wee Gee board. You know, I get a lot of questions about this book. A lot of people are even tell me, they said, I'm not going to read that book. It's scary, and I always tell people This book is is actually not a scary book. You know, there's so much bugaboo about the winch on board and You know, the way I started working with the witch aboard was that I literally just started playing with it, not playing with it, but literally realizing that it was a tool of communication. And, you know, I always tell people the wager board. You know, Hollywood makes it so scary, but it's simply It's no different than a cell phone. You know if I pick up the cell phone, all right, I can call somebody say I love you and bring joy to their life. Or I can call somebody inside H U and make them upset. No, it's the cell phone bad. No, The cell phone's not bad. The switchboard is like cell phone. It's really a device. And as I got into the spiritualist movement I started working with, you know, the earthbound souls like we're talking about earlier. And I found that because the earthbound souls are so close to our energy, our earth vibration if you will, that it's easier for them to communicate through that, because many earthbound souls Are still very they still think in a very material way instead of the wage aboard. They're comfortable with that because they can impress their energy more directly on that, and that's how I started working with it. Was through. I started doing what we call rescue circles. At my home where I would have small say ounces each week and we've worked with the witch aboard. Do you have any psychic? That or mediums that you Like I do actually. You mean like famous ones are just anybody any anymore? Once we might know, for example, were, you know a big influence in my life who inspired me to become a psychic? With Sylvia Browne. I was always a big fan of her. I loved her. And I always thought she you know, she insisting Sylvia Browne talk aboutthe Weeds were hated the weeds aboard. And she always spoke against it, but that's one area where I disagree with their You know, psychics. We're all going to disagree sometimes, but that she was an influence. We we had some issues with Silvia. She would appear on our show and a lot, but that she would also be on other shows. Ah, TV shows Montel Williams month stuff like that. And the day she said through some parents out of Missouri that their little boy Shawn Hornbeck was dead. And then years later, he shows up. It's a teenager very much alive. It was an abduction case I want Oh, my God, but she was on the year with US. One day cycle, Bob You remember the miners incident when they were trapped? Yeah. 13 of them in Virginia, almost in your neck of the woods on DH. She had gone on the air and said something about that They were all dead and, ah All of a sudden we got instant reports that they were all alive. Andi. I said, Sylvia, how could you make that mistake And she says something crazy and We kind of went our win our war in our separate ways, And then she passed away. Yeah. Yeah, well, you know, I have to tell you, you know, I'm not, you know, making excuses for her work in that area, but I have to say You know, um, when you're working with the type of energies that a psychic or a medium works with it is a complex energy and Even the best miss it. Sometimes I miss it. You know, from the first to admit it Whenever I make a mistake, I never lied by some people. I misinterpreted it. And so you have to, you know, kind of look at the lifetime of a psychic like Powers their accuracy been over their lifetime. I think if you honestly Study the life of Sylvia Browne. She did a lot of good and helped a lot of people. She did help a lot of people. I guess I would have felt better on the Hornbeck episode, the little boy that rather than tell the parents he's dead when he ended ovary much alive, she would they heat that they went through a tour horror for that for years. Maybe she should have said I'm not getting a re feeling from him. I I don't know what that man is. You know, this is the thing is, yes, I would agree with you because I think it's very hard to call. Sometimes that now. What happens is when somebody you know is in a sense, like the Shawn Hornbeck case. They're probably wass at some point. An implication or a trauma that he felt that he was going to die or that the captor may have even threaten him with Sylvia may have interpreted that and she may have picked up that front like that. He felt like he was dying or his life was over and interpreted it as he literally died, and that's a mistake. I always tell people as a psyche. We've got to be really careful. Especially when we worked on police cases. Absolutely about the James von Prague. Any experience with him? I've never met him. I like James from Prague. I think he does really great psychic classes here. There's a lot of teaching. And I think he's you know his glasses. From what I know I have a number of clients that have been his groups and they tell me he's great. Um and I think he does really great work and advising on television program because I think he helped spring mediumship. Spiritualists truth to the public. So I have a lot of respect for Superboy. I'm getting a lot of emails, Bob, that the people hear your phone crackling and I just want to explain to them that you are on a special What?.

The Mid Night Club street racers
"Today we have. I'm excited about this is a good one. This is. One of the coolest cars things ever. Yeah. We have very so secretive who topic you guys today we are talking about a racing group known. As the Midnight Club, a midnight club. Yes. The fastest racing team fastest street racing team in Japan got comic book made after him. Yeah. Thanks to an in-depth investigation by wonderful writer. Joseph thank you Joseph. We're able to bring you the truth but the Midnight Club It's worth pointing out the most the articles refining them in that club are based on the wikipedia article. That's it. That's journalism and yet unfortunately for the vast majority of them, the information on the wikipedia page has been purposely crafted to mislead people to protect the real members, identity God, their the aluminum body it's insane. That means a large amount of what people think they know about the club's actually wrong deliberately. So but FRONTENAC. Because we're super excited to share the real story behind them in that club. All right. So to know the story of the Midnight Club, you have to know nineteen eighties Japan throughout the nineteen eighties Japan was experiencing one of the most significant financial bubbles of all time. The entire bubble was similar to the one that we had in the US in two, thousand eight and the one that is currently taking place in China the post world. War. Two Economy of Japan had encouraged citizens to save their money causing an unbelievable surplus of savings The banks had no problem meeting their reserve requirements stays thanks to the massive cash surplus, which in turn allow the banks to engage in much more lenient. Lending behavior does this sound familiar? Yeah. Okay. Good. There are also many America yeah. It's like how it was ten years ago now, but that's a crash. What we're saying here is just like after World War. Two there's this culture in Japan where the government was like just save your money save your money save your money. and. The reason that these cars happened. Is because. The companies looked around and they were like Orlands ultra-modern. Yeah. We could. We could make something really cool stuff and they could buy it, and so they just started making twin turbo six cylinder behemoths out. We will get there. There are also many government programs intended to weaken the US dollar against the Japanese yen through means of financial deregulation. The combination of excess liquidity in the banks and financial deregulation led to a massive economic boom known as Japan's economic miracle prices on domestic stocks and real estate had risen to an all time high tripling in value tripling tripling in value between nineteen, eighty, five and nineteen eighty-nine wealthy parents could afford to buy their children. The nicest sports cars Japan. Had offer sports cars were absolutely everywhere in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty. Japan.

Can like you can't get a Sylvia for eighteen grand I mean you can could, but like a clean one. That's what they're they sell for now. They haven't appreciate all in the big picture. It was the Japanese bubble that led to the birth of all the street racing in the country I am hooked kids loved the idea of driving a fast car on the cheap in the early eighties some of the more popular choices of course, Celica supra.

Tipping the Waiter at the TikTok Table; Howard Schultz: This is a five-star emergency
"Up on today's podcast tech and the platform that's finally got adults talking tick tock tech stocks have been on a tear salesforce Microsoft and facebook all hit record highs this week. But leading the charge apple last Friday I will lead over ten percent in one day yesterday the stock closed at an all time high and now apple is just a few percentage points away from hitting a two trillion dollars market cap the golden number to get it there four, hundred, sixty, seven dollars and seventy seven cents a share. And it looks like apple wine this milestone before it's order one stock split goes into effect at the end of this month. The other companies in the headlines? This Week tiktok beloved by teems commonly misunderstood adults, and now a chesapeake in international business and diplomacy. Here's injury Ross Mark and we've been talking TIKTOK and Microsoft and all of what's happening in Washington. Eunice Yoon reporting now that it's not just Microsoft but to other tech firms that are in talks with Tik Tok owner by dance over a possible sale in president trump said yesterday, he was ready to approve a purchase of the US operations tiktok. But then he said the only woman to do it if the government receives a lot of money in exchange listen to this. Microsoft or somebody else who was the Chinese? What what the price is the United States could should get a very large percentage of that price because we're making it possible without us you know I use the expression it's like the landlord and the tenant. And without the lease the tenant doesn't have the value what we're sort of in a certain way the lease we make it possible to have this great success, tick toxic tremendous success, but a big portion of its in this country. Sale? Yeah. Whatever the number is, would it would come from the civil on Wall Street banker problems. By the way they call that tipping the waiter, but I don't think we've ever tipped the government for transaction president trump said he told Microsoft's CEO that a very substantial portion of the price is going to have to come into the treasury of the United States because quote or making it possible for this deal to happen I was on the phone by the way with. The people involved in this transaction deal teams on all sides who heard that yesterday. Couldn't really even make. Heads or tails of what the president was saying how. Would you hey the government what would that look like could there be a formulation where ultimately you come to some kind of transactional agreement and then you announce that you're making some kind of infrastructure investment in the in the United States who you're going to create some kind of jobs I'm literally, this is the conversation that's happening inside the room among these companies. If we created some companies without yesterday we got to it. It's what did you say? I. Heard it reported yesterday when I first started reporter yesterday I thought he's just saying this stuff off the cuff he doesn't really mean it. Then I saw what he actually said I thought wow, he does mean it. I don't even know how you could possibly as somebody WHO's working on this deal come up with anything that makes any sense and Steve Ballmer Steve Balmer was with us yesterday and said as a shareholder as the top shareholder Microsoft he would love to see this deal get done at the right price. Gets an exciting proposition for Microsoft. obviously depends on the price. Price is important as well as whatever restrictions come from a government perspective but I think it's an exciting avenue for Microsoft to really increase its consumer base. I don't know how you figure out any sort of pricing right pricing when you have to then go in and add some significant number on top that you'd be paying to the US Treasury. Well, what are they? Going to happen is because this is a bit of evaluation game. And I hate to say, we're going to be using trump valuation but I think that what's going to happen is they're going to effectively. Create a higher valuation for the overall business. Then kind of create something where they can say we're giving you something and that bite dance is giving it. That's the other important part of the view at least from what I understand Turnley among these groups is that the money has to come out of China not out of a US company. So you're going to have to make it appear whatever that whatever it is that you're giving to appear that China's not getting part of that's because Peter Navarro and others don't frankly want US money. Ten twenty thirty billion forty billion dollars ending up in the hands of China for the. So there's so many sort of China. has already weighed in. On this today that China has weighed in on this today through some of the states that media where they are saying that you know the US is basically stealing us and trying to do take off with this that it's a rogue nation now at this point. So the idea that you are going to come up with something that satisfies the trump administration and at the same time satisfies the communist government in China Good luck with that I mean this is they're going to get caught in between the two the two with this because even though China may not. Necessarily, be looking for some of the same angles. It's not going to say, okay, it's okay for the US to come out looking like this and stealing our company and don't worry about it. CEO of Tiktok you know or bite dance don't worry about it. We'll live with that sort of a kind of a slap in the face. To all this stuff we're talking about it. Sorry Andrew it. It overshadows the the lead of the story right and that's that there are possibly other suitors for the US. Of tiktok, we we we talked yesterday Andrew about well, maybe media companies would be interested in this property. Now, you know the the wording here that that we use her that Eunice was reporting was other tech offense, which which makes it even more interesting and who these other tech companies. May Be an at. Are they based in the US or are they elsewhere? It would be very I. I would imagine it would be very hard for Google or Amazon or an apple etc to try to buy this company given the anti-trust pressures on them, I. Think my understanding was that the White House preferred that liked the Microsoft choice from a regulatory perspective. So it's all very interesting by the way the other piece of this is the part I. Really don't understand if you're apple today, you know we're talking about this two trillion dollars market cap that keeps going up and up and up. Given. Given. The China risks now now, maybe look they foxconn supplying hundreds of thousands of people if not more than are making these phone so maybe they can't just say to Tim. Cook. Good luck to you but I would think there would be risk if we do this to a Tiktok what kind of a backlash reciprocal. Backlash is China going to have for some US companies doing business there? That's the part I don't understand say knock built into any of the. It it's it's no different than the same conversations we were having during the depths of the trade war. Right? We had these same conversations. We push too hard if the tariffs are to punitive companies are companies like apple, the ones that are going to face the pushback or the retaliation in some way and I think it's fair to say that that that never really came back to these two tech companies I mean, she didn't say where those tech companies were based and and I wonder what the US would do that if if it was being pursued by a company, another technology company based in China but not based in the United States either how would Sylvia's see something like that and would they still threaten to turn off the the APP in the United States if it was not a US company?

Obituary: Herman Cain
"Herman Cain helped define the American black conservative movement. He also set the stage for trump by Philip Elliott. Herman. CAIN remembered the nineteen ninety-six moment that changed his political trajectory as clearly as any in his life. The businessman was advising Jack Kemp's vice presidential campaign and accompanied the boss to the iconic Sylvia's soul food restaurant in Harlem for an event a man in the crowd shouted out to Kane and colleagues Black Republicans, there's no such thing. The. Same Man in canes telling called them Uncle Toms. The episode. So angered Kane that when he got home from that campaign swing, he switched from a registered independent to a card carrying member of the Republican. Party and over the next quarter century, the child of the segregated south became one of the best known black Republicans in the country briefly rising to be his party's presidential front runner for the two thousand twelve nomination and remaining one of the most quotable stars in conservative media. So committed to his party's stick it in the I e host was Cain that he flew to Tulsa. Oklahoma for President Donald, trump's first return to the campaign trail after one hundred thousand US corona virus deaths despite dire warnings from public health experts at that endure rally on June twentieth the stage four colon cancer survivor posed for pictures without wearing a mask and sat in the packed stands with fellow fans of the president on June twenty-ninth Cain tested positive for the corona virus. On July second, his aides announced he had been hospitalized while fighting the disease his twitter account continued to criticize mask wearing and to promote unproven endorsements of hydroxy. On. July. Thirtieth CAIN aides announced he had died from the White House trump attributed the death to the thing called the virus cain among the most prominent Americans to die during this pandemic who was seventy four In many ways, Kane and trump were cut from the same cloth neither had been elected to any political post before running for the White House, both delighted in needling the Republican Party's establishment and the mainstream press they shot from the hip campaigned in slogans and didn't much care to learn the details. Both men were dogged by allegations of sexual affairs and inappropriate behavior, and both denied the allegations they proved disqualifying for Kane who ended his bid in December twenty eleven under intense scrutiny. But they did not derail trump just one election cycle. Later, they were also both savvy exploiters of the media. In saying things they knew would provoke outrage and thus amplify the celebrity at the core of their bids indifference toward if not hostility against what had come before was a cornerstone of their strategy, not a flaw. CAIN was born in Memphis in nineteen forty-five to a domestic worker mother and a janitor father when his dad was hired to be the chauffeur for the head of coca-cola, the family moved to Atlanta where cain would graduate from Morehouse College. He then completed his graduate studies at Purdue University after civilian service in the navy from there Kane moved from engineer to executive with Pillsbury and its subsidiaries of Burger King and Godfather's pizza where he would be its CEO. In nineteen, Eighty Eight, he oversaw Godfather's. From, Pillsbury throughout the same time yelled positions with the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. That part of his resume lead trump to consider cane for a position in his administration a move that drew dissent from fellow Republicans who were not eager to revisit the allegations against Kane for three years. Kane led the national. Restaurant Association a lobbying arm for the industry that paid settlements to at least two women who detailed canes unwanted advances. His was not a typical career in his post. CEO Years Cain became a sought after motivational speaker and unsuccessful presidential candidate in two thousand and a Senate one in two thousand four. As, the tea party movement started to organize after Barack Obama's election to the White House. Kane emerged as one of its strongest spokespeople when the twenty twelve election cycle began kane decided to run the scrappy est of campaigns focused on untrue additional travel schedule that often seemed more like a book tour than an organizing effort. His novel nine, nine nine tax plan proposing a nine percent corporate business flat tax, a nine percent personal income flat tax and a nine percent national sales tax drew I rolls from economists but curiosity from voters. Antipathy toward front runner Mitt Romney proved sufficient to give cain a chance to rise in the late summer and fall of twenty eleven until his personal life just proved too much. But he didn't shrink from podcast life. Instead he became a ubiquitous voice and reliable critic of Democrats

He brushed my hair and feed me breakfast every morning. He'd read to May. Take me to the petting zoo, but you know there were always signs of problems. Her Mother Link Carson knew something was wrong when her husband James. Carson began violently threatening. Anyone who upset Him. Including her the first few times. He said it. She didn't believe him the second few times he said it, and then he got a gun. In nineteen seventy nine, when five years old, her parents divorced after a decade of marriage. Shortly after James, Carson remarried and changed his name to Michael Barone Carson. And then the problems got worse. Jen's I her father and stepmother's house is etched in her memory. There was no furniture and lamps. It was dark and there were hundred potted plants. It looked like the haunted forest and Snow White. I remember actively trying to skip this house. General remembers a particularly terrifying moment. When her stepmother came into the room and started rubbing her back. She ended up scratching her and leaving five open wounds. She was saying things to me like I'll scratch this team and out of you it was. It was horrific. You remember when someone tries is threatening to kill you. You know unharmed. Show in this way so. After that visit I got home, my mom saw wounds and she said you're never going back there. Lynn took her daughter packed to personal car in the middle of the night and hit the road spending the next four years moving from city to city. They eventually settled in orange, county California. She told her young daughter that they needed to be away from her father because he was sick I, was incredibly angry so on top of my mom, having no one that's believing her for five years on top of that. She has a five six seven year old saying I hate you. I want my daddy. Jen's life at home was tough. Her mother struggled with depression. Her Life at school wasn't much better. She was behind academically and constantly got in trouble. I didn't really feel like I. was a bad student I felt like I was a bad person that my very makeup was bad at eight years old. Yeah, during this period, I had extreme depression. At School Jen's teacher didn't recognize her depression or cries for help. Instead. She constantly reprimanded her for acting out once, saying Jen was the worst students she'd ever had. That was like just throwing a match on my gasoline. So. My behavior then got worse throughout the rest of the year. She didn't feel safe anywhere. At Home Jen would often see police officers at her door. They ask about her father. She didn't know exactly why because her mother would always send her to room. Still she heard bits and pieces and knew it wasn't good. By Third Grade Jen was preparing herself for another difficult year I went into the class and I remember putting my hair in front of my eyes, and putting my head down, and just not wanting to interact with the new teacher. But then that teacher Mrs Sylvia case did something Jen didn't expect. I just remember her on day one day to day three Sane Jenny heard. You're such a great reader. Why don't you come? Help me hold the book? That was the beginning of something new Gen learned to love books, and over the year she caught up academically Mrs case was brought her Baratz as a prize for good grades on Her spelling test. They also kept the hair out of her is. She also helped John Apply for the girl scouts, and for reduced lunch when she suspected money was tight at home which it was. But what Gen remember most of all were misses cases, sincere and specific compliments. A lot of teachers will say good job. She would say you're cursive. Letter Ams look like art. And something I've tried to do the rest of my life because I think it is one of the kindest things you can do because you're saying to another human I, see you. And icy the goodness in you.

For a four day tutorial on abuse. For the past two decades, Roman Catholic churches around the world have been hit by numerous sex abuse cases and have spent billions of dollars in settlements. The manual does not have the force of a new law that goes beyond the current policy that bishops must report allegations of sex crimes on Lee, where legally required. The manual is aimed at depriving bishops of excuses not to investigate allegations of clerical sex abuse in order to protect their priests. Sylvia Poggioli

First Day from Martin and Sylvia enjoy the first day Martin and Sylvia live in a tall house with lots of windows from their second story. Loft bedroom they can see their backyard covered in a thick blanket of snow. They can also see the Snow Snow Daddy and the Snow Mama. They made after the big storm. Martin who was seven did most of the snowball rolling and lifting. He was proud of his new seven-year-old strength and love to make bigger and bigger snowballs to see how much he could carry. Sylvia who was five and didn't enjoy lifting his much preferred to do the packing and decorating. She ran inside to to get hats and carrots and then added them for the final touch. The daddy was in a bright orange hat with ear flaps and the Mama had a long striped hat and a purple scarf both had carrot noses and sticks arms every morning since Martin and Sylvia would wake to check on their snow people as if to check if they hadn't moved about in the night right sometime. Sylvia was convinced that they had pointing out that the hat was slightly ajar or the arms were noticeably. Ably lower I think they were dancing. Sylvia would say with a smile. Snowmen don't dance. They're just snow. Oh Martin would say they don't move they they melt that's all Sylvia didn't like it. When he talked to her that way one morning they woke to see the Snow Mama and Snow Daddy covered in new snow a lot of snow? There had been another storm and while they slept and now the playhouse the garden posts bill. Bill's Doghouse and the snow. People merely looked like big lumps. In a smooth ooh field of white it snowed shouted Sylvia and just in time for first day said Daddy He. While making breakfast in the kitchen below Martin and Sylvia looked at each other with wide excited smiles on their faces. First are stay first. Day was a festival in their downtown's celebrating the New Year. The Gazebo in the green was lit up in colored lights and there were booths of hot chocolate and fresh baked muffins shops around the green always had special window displays displays and treats on offer. Sometimes there were musicians when it was warm enough the big event though was the ice and snow snow sculpting real life. Artists would take a chunk of pure ice and sculpt it into amazing shapes and forms. One time there was a huge seal with a ball on its nose another time. There was a king in His throne and one year. There was a winged horse. Sylvia loved that sculpture and often talked about it though. The ice sculptures were artists. The snow sculpture was is for everyone and often people formed in teams. People who worked in the same shop could form a team. School groups formed a team. Neighbors neighbors often formed teams this year. Martin Sylvia's family decided to form a team with their neighbors. The browns Mr and Mrs Brown were farmers and their children were all grown up now. Mr Brown was always part of every parade downtown and liked to ride right bell his horse and dress up in his pretend civil war uniform or an old time farmer costume Mrs Brown also enjoy dressing dressing up and wore long hoop skirts and walked along next to the horse waving and chatting with the people watching they were a lot of fun breakfasting Martin and Sylvia talked about the snow sculpting and what they wanted to do daddy said that the theme for this first day was magical New Year so the sculptures needed to have something to do with magic. Let's make a castle with a giant peaking. Its head out from behind said Martin Mama and Daddy got excited about this idea and started planning. They had the tools to build snow blocks for the castle and the giant could just be a huge snowman as they were talking. Sylvia interrupted I want to make a horse Horse with wings a flying horse. It was quiet for a moment and then Martin chimed in nats too to hard for snow the wings would fall off no they wouldn't shouted. Sylvia suddenly very angry now. Sylvia said Daddy. There's no need need to yell. I understand you want to make a flying horse but I have to say I think Martin is right. It's too tricky with snow. I I can see trying it with ice but snow wouldn't hold up. Yes it would. And I'm not making a castle and a giant said Sylvia now furious Sylvia said Mama about to reason with her but Sylvia quickly clapped her hands over her ears and frowned fiercely. Well well okay then said daddy as they finished up their breakfast and started to get ready. Mommy and daddy hustled. Muscled children to get ready so they could meet. The browns downtown Martin was enthusiastic and got himself already waited. Outside with Celia via was still upset was dragging her feet. She couldn't find her hat. Her Mittens or boots and then she was too tired to put any of them on. Daddy started to get frustrated. Sylvia you can get yourself dressed. You dress yourself every morning to go outside and work on your snowman man. So what is the difference about this morning. I'm too tired today. Sylvia said with a tight frown. She was still very angry eventually. They were all in the truck and on their way. Downtown Martin was remembering the snow sculptures from the previous year and said this this year. His best friend. Sasha in her family were helping the Volunteer Fire Department sculpture. He said they were going to make dragon get it dragons. Breathe Fire Fire Department Martin. Mama and daddy laughed. Sylvia was quiet when they arrived downtown downtown they could see it filled with people. It looked like a bigger crowd than last year. People were sipping hot. Cocoa in nibbling on muffins some were shopping and walking the green many were watching the ice sculptors working when they got to the green. They watched a sculptor after working on what looked like the inside of a clock. Sylvia saw one working on a Unicorn and pulled her mama over to look. After a cup of Cocoa Sylvia was feeling better in started to smile at all. The beautiful sculptures then came time to work on the snow sculptures and Silvia's mood changed again. They met the browns and Martin immediately told them about his plan to make a castle missile with giant. The browns thought that would be great fun and they looked for a spot to work. Sylvia folded her arms and refuse is to come. Daddy explained that she wanted to make a flying horse a horse with wings and they had all agreed. It was too difficult. Mr Brown tried to help by making light of it. All horses are hard enough as it is. You want to add wings my words Sylvia. You sure knew how to make a challenge. I'll stick to a castle made of simple bricks. Thank you very much then. He laughed and rubbed her hatted head with his big hand. She did not think it was funny. Turned Away Mama spoke up now Sylvia. There's no need to be rude. Oh it's all right said Mrs Brown kneeling to be Sylvia's level. Mr Brown doesn't mind and besides he didn't really understand any way did he. Sylvia Sylvia looked Mrs Brown with big eyes. Shook her head. The others left to get to work. While Mrs Brown's stayed with Sylvia they watched as Martin told all the adults adults what they should do. Daddy got to work on the giants body while Momma started making snow bricks. Mr Brown helped but mostly he told jokes folks. Mrs Brown giggled. What Mr Brown doesn't understand is what it's like to be the youngest but but I know what it's like? Do you know how many older brothers and sisters I have. Sylvia shook her head seven. Three brothers and four sisters. There are eight of US eight. Can you believe it. Sylvia's eyes were wide as she shook her head again. Mrs Brown continued so growing up. I had mom I had dad and seven others always telling me what to do. I never had say in anything. It was always do this do that. No that's not right do it. This way Sylvia nodded. Martin is always telling me what to do. He says my flying horse won't work. She looked like she was going to cry by. Mrs Brown nodded sympathetically. Is that what you want to build today for the festival Sylvia looked a little embarrassed harassed. We wanted to but the wings will probably fall off. Mrs Brown smiled. Not If they're invisible. Sylvia was confused invisible wings. That's right the theme is supposed is to be magic and invisible wings would certainly qualify for magic. How about you and I make a horse with invisible Wings that way people will be even more surprised when he flies. They both laughed Sylvia. I was feeling much better. Let's make the horse like it's going into the castle for food after it flew through the air. Yes said Mrs Brown. The Castle can be it's barn and giant can be the farmer said Sylvia and they went to work mark while Mama and Mr Brown made the bricks for the castle and Martin Daddy made the giant Sylvia and Mrs Brown made the Horse at first they tried making it stand up but that was too tricky so the horse rested on the ground with its legs folded when they all all finished they stood back and saw how everything fit perfectly. The castle was up two daddies Chin and the big giants head head. Peaked out over the top. Mr Brown gave him big ears and a huge nose. At the base was a door that was open and Sylvia's Sylvia's horse was contentedly lying down looking at the door a different family came by to look at it and the little boy there said. Look the Horse Mama. He's sleeping. Sylvia looked at the boy. It's a magic horse. He has invisible wings. The boys is grew wide as he looked for the wings. Martin put his hand on Sylvia's shoulder. Nice Horse Martin. said that was a good idea. Thanks said Sylvia and brother and sister. Her went hand in hand around the green looking at all the snow sculptures that the town created all welcoming in a magical well new year..
