The Real Reason Why More Young Women Are Getting Sterilized
"Humans are a mistake New York Post says why young women are getting sterilized. Rachel diamond looks like most of the moms at the pork slope park slope cafe where we meet. She's wearing a green T-shirt under a black corduroy jumper. Sensible shoes and carries a smart leather bag. She sips a $4 iced chai tea latte. Except the 31 year old is in a mom, and she never will be. You know, she said, I never expected to be the poster child of sterilization. One on the aspiring actress TikTok, one finds short funny videos. Diamond job working to register the cafe near Union Square and updates on her rescue pit bull. Ru who has an anemia. Oh, but she likes dogs but not humans. Interesting. So in 5 months and she's had her fallopian tubes cut, not tied, and she is 64,000 followers. She's done videos such as sterilization. Being child free, we do know what we're missing. She says, looking back, I never pretended that my American girl dolls were children. They were always my sisters. They were little things showing that I wasn't pretending myself for motherhood. I think for me, it's as innate as saying I've always wanted to be a mom. Diamond is hardly an outlier. Americans are making fewer babies than we've seen since starting to keeping tracks of the 1930s, and some women like diamond are not just pulling putting off pregnancy, but eliminating the possibility of it altogether. Last year, the number of deaths exceeded the number of births in 25 states. Up from 5 the year before, the marriage rate is also at an all time low. At 6.5 marriages per 1000 people. Millennials are the first generation where a majority are unmarried about 56%. They're also more likely to live with their parents, according to pew than previous generations were in their 20s and 30s. Humans are a mistake the New York Post, right? Now they don't believe it. They're just actually they wrote a really good article. And I like the New York Post. There are also the most sexless generation in American history, the number of young men who admit they've had no sex in the past year has tripled between 2008 and 2018. Cities like New York were young secular Americans flocked to build their lives are increasingly childless in San Francisco. There are more dogs than children. Let me say it again. In San Francisco, there are more dogs than children and the explanation of this is so easy. The more secular your country becomes, why have children? If you don't believe in a transcendent order or in God, what's the point? They're an

Editorial Book Reviews: Getting Reviews for Your Book
"The value of the review of a book first of all it aids in third party credibility having somebody else say hey. This book is great is a way that browsing customers or potential readers are going to be a little more susceptible or a little more willing to first of all. Purchase your book or even more so. Read your book also. Getting reviews helps out with marketing. Because you can go out. And say hey. My book is amazing. But somebody else says that. Your book was amazing. Can grab a little quote. Their fair use folks. We go to share that on out there and say hey this is. This book is great. Says i dunno engelbert humperdinck that whoever might be was probably not a great example. And there's also another theory when it comes to reviews it also helps out in search engine optimization because by having even more data on your product page or put with your book online it will generate more traffic and more discover ability now again. That's a theory especially over on the amazon platform. So now we've gotten the reviews part out the way. What about editorials book reviews. What the heck are those. Is you hear this quite often. Some people are like well. There's no. I don't know anybody newspaper. I don't know an editor. How am i supposed to do this. No contra independent book review summarizes at best when they say this i'm going to read it verbatim. An editorial book review is unbiased. Reader focused review of your published or soon to be published book often used by publishers on marketing. Material book covers posters and on the editorial reviews section on their amazon sales page that lasts parts a really nice one in. We're gonna put a pin in that because we would come back to that probably towards the end so what is an editorial review like this varies per platform say that ten times fast varies per platform and it really depends on what they offer most instances and aditorial review with specific service sites. They tend to have more discerning readers and people that are going to give you a more detailed review places like qurqus in union square review have readers who picked every last detail about your book. Apart that includes cover design the ad. Copy ak your book description. Your titled choice content everything. It's very very detailed. The nice thing about a to'real refuses. They make him really good long. They're not gonna be like your normal amazon book reviewers like this was a great book review. I gave it to my grandmother. I loved it that type of review just doesn't really cut the mustard when it comes to third party credibility you really need someone who says precisely what this book is in why they enjoyed it. Or maybe why they didn't enjoy it and then with that at a tory review. You're able to kind of have some information that you can use his marketing collateral in. Put that out there and get it to where people potentially by more now. There are some other forms of editorial reviews that are not as professionals. Let's say as qurqus or a union square review. I'm not gonna point any figures one specific but let's just say that A blogger posts a review about your book on their website. Technically that's an editorial review is. It's an outside source. Maybe some unused that blogger as an expert of some sorts of that definitely qualifies as editorial review. All right so you probably saying yourself. It's all well and good dale. What's the cost is a no. This is going to be getting to glad that you said this. They'll stick around folks. Don't listen to the like the the. Oh i heard the number how much it's gonna cost and just to now because they're going to share with you how you can be able to select what's right and what's wrong. You most times editorial reviews the cost as little as fifty dollars to as much as five hundred seventy five dollars or even more depending on how much you're going gonna be buying as far as the quantity goes to be clear when you get an editorial review that usually does not consist of them doing the review and posting it on amazon. No no no. No no no. Because that's buying reviews. Its getting to get against terms of service over on amazon. So they don't do that. It's okay. i think you understood that though Editorial reviews will be simply something that they're going to share on their website maybe to the email list maybe to their youtube channel so on and so forth. You're just able to take the editorial review and place it where you would like a few of them on top my head here. I'm going to kind of go through. Some is not an exhaustive list. But i want to kind of give you an example. Reader's favourite k. Probably not my favorite site no pun intended when it comes to buying editorial reviews but they do offer a free editorial review that you can get through them really nice score to reader's favourite.

Dig for Victory
"To get to today's urban gardens, let's go back in time to the founding of the US, there were certainly major cities Philadelphia New York Boston, but it wasn't. Until the eighteen hundreds that more and more people move to cities and urban ization in the US really got underway. These are people who would have grown almost all their own food before, but now they live in a city. They can buy food at the market. So how many of them kept up gardening in their new urban homes? A lot of food production went on. On within city boundaries well through the start of the twentieth century, there were lots and lots of urban livestock, because people were raising pigs and cows and chicken for food within city limits anesthesia day as a historian at the University of Delaware, and she's working on a PhD about Victory Gardens. It's only really during the city, Beautiful Movement and the progressive era that city start passing ordinances that actually outlawed these forms of local food production in the name of cleanliness and sanitation and middle-class standards of respectability, because only poor people grow their. Their own food. The city beautiful movement was big deal during the eighteen nineteen in one thousand, nine hundred wealthy urbanites, all this rural migration and immigration, and of course, the rising inequality and poverty and tenements in their cities, and they were not happy. They tried to clean the city up. They built big boulevards and parks with monumental fountains, and eventually they also introduced strict zoning laws and chickens and vegetable patches were not part of these new beautiful cities urban agriculture. Something poor people needed. It had to go some cities overtime had already. Already banned maybe the animals in the streets, or even keeping certain animals within city limits, but this really solidified during the city, beautiful movement city started to enact ordinances that said no farm animals in the city at all and no front yard vegetables, either meanwhile the poor had more pressing concerns than how the city looked frequently, when bad harvests and economic fluctuations raised food prices, they could not get to eat. There were dozens of major food riots in American cities throughout the eighteen hundreds. The first urban gardening movement starts in eighteen ninety. Ninety three in the town of Detroit, because of this panic of eighteen, ninety three, there were lots of panics. In those days, the stock market was very new, very volatile and long story short, suddenly, basically overnight, forty three percent of detroiters are unemployed in what had been a booming city and the Mayor Hazel S Pingree I has to find some way to answer. The cries of his constituents. So what he does is, he starts the first urban farming movement, which is ironically happening at the same time that many productive activities within the. The city are being outlawed. In other cities, urban leaders didn't want farms in their cities, but they also didn't want riots, and so letting poor people groza food on vacant land was seen as an acceptable temporary band aid in times of shortages. The Detroit plan was called the potato, patch plan and it had pretty impressive results by eighteen, ninety, six seventeen hundred families were farming more than four hundred acres in the city, and there are letters there from local detroiters writing into mayor Pingree, saying you so much I was able to grow. Grow Food for my family and lots of the people that wrote in. It's heartbreaking, because these letters are hardly legible there in broken English. Many of them were recent, German and Polish immigrants who were taking advantage of this program to grow foods dot connected them to their home as well as to feed their families. The Potato Patch program was seen as a success, but it was never meant to be permanent in less than a decade when economic situation in Detroit started to improve urban farms kind of petered out until the next big. Big Crisis, which was World War, one, the city beautiful movement had stamped out urban gardening the Detroit potato patches were gone, but suddenly there was a huge need both for food, and for kind of coming together in a patriotic sense. At least that's how Charles lay through peck sought. He was a lumber baron from New Jersey and early on in the days of the European conflict. He wrote the US government and said people should be reason. Food would help them contribute to the war help stock shortages, and the USDA promptly said Sir. We've got better ideas going here for better uses of fertilizer and seed supplies so thanks for your input and no thanks Charles hadn't made his fortune by taking no for an answer, so he took that Fortuna and started a Liberty Garden Movement himself, and he quickly found a whole group of rich people who wanted to join him in getting Americans. Gardening again to support the war Charles and his friends created a movement. There were Liberty Gardens. Gardens on Boston Common, and in Union Square in New York and big corporations like Eastman Kodak and General Electric set aside land at their factories for employees to grow and boy scouts even had a garden at Grover Cleveland's Childhood Home in New Jersey. Even the government caught the Liberty Garden fever, and they created a school program to teach budding young home farmers how to grow food and support. The soldiers was actually one of the first nationally. Nationally promoted curricula in the country, the Liberty Garden Movement seemed to really catch the public imagination. However, there was no infrastructure for collecting numbers. The only source we have is Charles Lathrop pack himself wrote a book called the war garden victorious in one, thousand, nine, hundred nineteen, and he claims that the movements sponsored five million gardens which time when there were just over six million actual professional farmers in the US is kind of impressive but remember. Remember Charles is our only source for this number and he might have been biased. It's really incredibly hard to say, but despite its holds on the national imagination, it had nowhere near the impact of world. War Two Gardens in terms at share mount of produce ground, sheer numbers of people participating sheer difference it made in the global war effort, and that's probably why you listeners at least in the US you don't use the Term Liberty Garden. Gardens you probably say victory garden.

Stephanie is currently only doing civic duty during jury duty somewhere in the five boroughs Stephanie was in Scotch Plains New Jersey having a great event there a few days ago Maybe we'll we'll get the update next week. Leo You're in the motherland right. I was in beautiful Israel. Why for my grandmother's one year as a memorial service? Yeah Had a chance to sit and study some Tomlin with my Gerke Hassett cousins. I dearly love and again you know. We're often kind of like you know funny about these matters here but every now and then I really do get the urge to be sincere when I sit with people who you would think we have absolutely nothing uncommon. But then you realize we are truly literally and metaphorically speaking family and when we get together that love that connection is completely puttable we have spent very a little time talking about the fact that you're related to Garros So how did these are first cousins of yourself. I Costa who went. Who Went Garrard in your family? My Grandmother's sisters Shula Married Girl Haas. Okay this is a particular sect of Hasidim. What is there? What's the What their vibe? Like what what makes Gerhardt's put it like this cafe after the memorial service writing grandmother. Someone was talking about a person who's become about Shuba who's found religion later in life and became a gir- haas acid and one of my cousins who is Haas it said really no one becomes Bolshevik becomes a hostage and I asked why not and my cousin said well. Because it's it's perfectly fine to be like a really religious Jew and not go all the way to where we are. Why would you ever do the house? We have no choice right. Mind way you ever come here. It's so interesting I don't have any Cassini blackadder's any Haredi in my family I have modern orthodox cousins in Israel whose parents my mother's first cousin hasn't her husband actually were leaders of the conservative movement in Israel but then there's not much of a conservative movement in Israel so if you grow up kind of conservative conservative acts like observant conservative but if you SORTA got a pick or are you going secular going modern Orthodox and they're you know they're orthodox but I don't know of anyone who's like got the hat and the beard. It's a great a crying. Shame you have Hasidic material written all over your basically and this is the thing that I I kind of realized this week. 'cause we were hanging we were talking and at some point. The conversation vacation got kind of really elevated. And then I thought you know moved to dial like three clicks to the right and we're talking about Cherry Garcia Right in one thousand nine hundred. Seventy right eating shrimps and the bus and the way to Monterrey. That's kind of the VIBE. Yeah really the essence of not just observing the strict strict interpretation of the law but really trying to find this motionless spiritual connect mystical court to it would love to. I WanNa hang with your gear custom in cousins or Greg. I had a slightly different experience but in its way no less mystical by the way while you're talking about Jerry Garcia on the bus. Were you on the conference call when I when we were all doing like a pre show Oh crap and Rebecca. My thirteen year old was in the car and she was saying Dad. Can you explain the the grateful dead to me which is a really deep question because you know I could say I mean. I think we'd been listening to uncle. John's John's Bander Casey Jones. Or something you've come on. Come on the playlist in the car and I could say well it's a it's a group from about nineteen sixty seven to nineteen. Ninety give is playing the debt side. But I could give you the Brownie right and you'll eat it thirty five minutes you'll understand everything about this man. I mean I. It's really hard to say because it's so much more than a band to six never made sense to me before I try them on. Meet cliche thing to say. One is a grateful dead. The second is tennis and attended attended. I'm like wait until you understand. 'em This is a great game. I just have to move my eleven right. I'm so into this now. I add my own mystical experience in Wia missing in Pennsylvania and a bunch of people came like they'd set up fifty chairs. Forty five of the chairs were were filled with super curious. Interesting people of all ages a young rabbi from Lebanon Pennsylvania brought his twenties and thirties. Group is like young singles of which there were five or six and they were super into it and they listen to the show and they wanted copies the book and it was magical. The Jewish Cultural Committee organizes their author series was three people. None of whom was is Jewish. Okay one of them was Nancy Russo. WHO's married to to Paul something? Jewish and Nancy is is Italian Catholic by upbringing. The main woman the director of cultural life for the Jewish nation is Amanda Hornberger. Whose husband is like something German Lutheran? She herself grew up. Congregational est she's on the vestry of her united the Church of Christ Congregational Church. I've always said that the congregation great out and there was a local librarian named John who grew up in Baltimore where he did sixteen years of Catholic school and then went off to college college. I mean literally none of these people even guys. Every time we meet a gentle on our show it turns out there a quarter Jewish. These people like zero Jew in them and yet they are keeping the Jewish heart beating y missing Pennsylvania. They were interested they were curious they're booking good authors. They're running great programs. The people they bring in Inter asking smart questions Jews by choice we had a convert. who showed up a Sherry came and said thank you for your your help on my journey? The podcast has been meaningful to me. gentile L. spouses of Jews. Why a missing? Pennsylvania was among the greatest afternoons of my life is how it ought to be how it ought to be. Whatever New York like fucking fucking A.? Y. A. Missing Pennsylvania it there. Are Jews starve reading. The News starts reading this and I want to see even today do an event at the Barnes and Noble in Union Square. And you'll get fifty fifty three people and I go to why missing and get forty and in town. That's probably like twelve thousand people get numbers you get. People are truly engaged truly engaged and so grateful full end their listeners and the ones who aren't listeners could become listeners I it was it was magical. Speaking of Magic Amazon is somehow making the Nazis disappear in news to the Jews. This this week we learned from the New York Times about that Amazon is and I quote quietly canceling its Nazis over the past eighteen months. The retailer has removed books by David. Duke a former the leader of the Ku Klux Klan as well as several titles by George Lincoln Rockwell founder of the American Nazi Party Amazon also prohibited volumes like the ruling elite the Zionist seizure of world power and and history of central banking and the enslavement of mankind from its virtual shelves. What are we think of Amazon? Taking strong hand Nazi literature out of its store. You're I'm not down with it. I'm not either tell you. Because here's the thing. Once you at a major conglomerates start making judgment calls about what is and is is not permissible for its captive audience to read. I think you're sorta screwed actually kind of a free speech absolutist in this way like yes I want everyone three David Duke Doc if only because once you do unless you're total frigging maniacal moron. You'd understand that this is absolute drivel. Actually want like free copies and like every this show be like. Hey guys here you go and try to get your way through mine com- If you can't get twelve pages into it. It's the most boring stuff you'll ever find. The beginning is funny. The middle sags the characterization gets gets a little thin toward the ad still never figured out how it ended. I never read it. No but really like do I really want Amazon making this call them. Why not the next up being like well you know This type of ideology is also quite offensive to us in history is in the type of thing we want people to read. You can imagine agenda that you can imagine where it goes very quickly to Jews in the Middle East or Zionist saying. We don't WanNa read you know the Hamas Charter and Palestinian activists saying we don't want to read. This spoke about the founding of Israel. I mean it's all of a sudden you've a lot of people who authentically believe that they are keeping genocidal literature out of the hands of other people saying what people can and cannot read and you add in the fact that Amazon really does have a kind of monopoly power. What we're reading? Yeah and find the these days of elsewhere.

Who is the CEO? At ALGA rant. UP IN BOSTON We realized too late that he's actually going to be in town in just a couple of hours but that were still doing this remotely because such such such as like but you should notice new and improved equipments in sound quality. These things coming out of my ears Ashaninka Ashaninka will but easier to hear without much of a den and certainly be a marked improvement from twenty nineteen version of qualified opinion so Dive into of course but For starters See if you know. I always like to dig into the origin story of the people that were speaking with Before we get too deep into the weeds out rand and her answer twenty twenty. How did you fall down the rabbit hole and get sucked in with with this crew? Yeah and by the way. Thanks for having me happier. So in terms of In terms of Crypto I I insertive had an interesting enter to which is. I'M A serial entrepreneur by By trade and was giving a fundraising talk at ABC's events in Boston a couple of years ago. So I think this is assertively sixteen and it was all sort of normal stuff but a guy in the corner sort of spoke up at the end and said well I have surveys slightly different problem about money have issued this cryptocurrency e end have blockchain that we've created in applications around it and we're thinking we'll just sell some tokens to fund our business and I started like. Wow that's that's interesting. You're staying in had been introduced to Bitcoin Over the few years before I had some friends who are doing mining and and are really passionate about but it just never really had a lot of time but I kind of sort of my eyes opened at the idea that you know could represented differently of of funding and and kind of thinking about How businesses evolve and from there Really dove in was doing with pillar which is Boston. BCC that's one of Belgrade's investors and also union square ventures And I was introduced to several folks in the community Sort of hobbyists mining with my kids and just basement of my house. Just learn about different parts of the tech but I think what really struck me was. I started my first business in the mid nineties in the early days of the Internet and I was a very dynamic time had a lot of libertarians in underpinnings very anti commercial and really about decentralisation that was Asian at tech ironically which doesn't necessarily seem that way now I'm was also just very vibrant community out. A lot of people were really fascinated by the tech in the Philisophical underpinnings of what could happen and it was the first time I had seen anything in twenty years since that really had some of the same feel to it And and so you know more and more as I again just found the space to be fascinating and there's so many different elements to it. So it's it's been it's been an adventure for sharp. How so How did you get excited about the algorithm project in particular because One of the common themes that. I think you're quite quite a bit about this year is a quote unquote eath killers or like new and improved versions of x blockchain at an unusually. It's around around optimizing for new feature or or a new use case were some of these teams are trying to develop a wedge and make sure that they're able elect to penetrate the market and Siphon off some of the developer interest ecosystem interest from from different existing blockchain's That's a tough sell right. But but how do you see Iran position as as unique in this regard income. What's the path to success or moving up the ranks? That's all Oh yeah. So what Ella loamy kind of hit the first one I part I in that I think sort of this discussion about how sort of the cryptovest base needs to evolve twelve. I think is a really important important area. I was introduced to Silvio Through pillar and and Union Square And really fascinated me about him. Was that one of the observations I had about the space is that a lot of the tech is derivative tech. Came before it But what it really felt like there needed to be a big step like a big leap and I think using the Internet analogy again. The blockchain space felt like you know the Internet when people were still using using dialup modems. And you know there needed to be Bigger Highways Belton and better better sort of fundamental tech. And what really found found. was that Silvio Ed along with really a group of researchers here reimagined attack from the ground up and to me. That felt like it could good if you if you kind of fast forward. A couple of decades Could have the same impact of something like a google. I think really there's is kind of an inflection point I think in the market that sort of leads to to what you were suggesting about a theory I over here. We're not necessarily all that worried about being in the theorem killer. I think the space has room for multiple players. I think also our point of view is that there's GonNa be multiple chains that ultimately can focus on different areas areas One of the things that we are very focused on though is if you look at the developer community on there's about twenty million developers world less than one hundred thousand of them are building building building boxing applications every day and the other nineteen point. Nine million are the more likely place. Just statistically where the killer APPs are gonNA come from and so really making it simple oh for for those people to engage with think is incredibly important and so I think if you look at kind of the way we focused our energy it's one really softbank onto the hard fundamental computer science problems and billing platform that can be used at scale and the has Good underlying mental properties for people who are issuing financial assets. That's an transacting with each other and anyway but then the second part is making it really simple for people to get their work done In example that is is Part of outgrown two point. Oh we released -til which is a smart contract language and a lot of interesting possibilities there but what I think is Exact excellent example. Something that's even more interesting. Is We have a python interface so that anybody who writes a python script can automatically GLI compiled into its yield script without having to ever learn anything about our smart contract language. I think that's where we need to get is really take some inspiration from places like stripe and make it really easy for people to add. Decentralized elements blockchain elements to their applications without needing to learn all the underlying technical details of course online the

Nobody will put their name on California a little bit different though. Right. And this looks like this can pass through. And then if that happens this double-leg has no choice but to say what they're saying right now because otherwise their whole model falls apart. Are they really going to take the most populated state in the country? The linchpin of what are your five major conferences, and say y'all outta here the most populated state in the country be biggest economy in the country by far they would be fifth in the world in terms of economic size.

You could organize our own playoff could organize all sorts of events in which our players get to get paid. And they get the profit, and that to me, it is an existential threat to the NC, double A, because they would get lots of players that are great. They would also actually defy the entire concept of what the NCAA's about the problem with your idea there these tournaments who's playing all the schools in California. How many of those do you give a damn about their four schools in California that are in the Pac tin? Right.

"Achievement. Do you have a knife at home? Do you use a knife at home? I have a knife faith things that the Pila can't do hardly anything for opening hands. Maybe. Yeah. Exactly. Exactly. So you learn to sell that peeler in that way from your father Joseph, right? Who really has an amazing story. He's a legendary New York figure. Tell us about him. Well, first of all he loved living in New York more than all the other places where he lived alot. He, you know, he started working in Manchester. And then he was in London he worked on fairs and markets all over England. And then we moved to Australia. He would stray Leah. But he loved selling in in New York, but he's been doing this kind of selling since he was fourteen fifteen cents. He left school. And how did he get started? Well, he he needed money after the war, and there were bump sites around Manchester and people up. Yeah. Exactly and markets with sash up there, and he used to go he had a job I think is kind of a messenger or something and on his time off used to go to the bomb site. And there there were men who became his mentors. Pitchman? We call them grafters in England who sold all kinds of things using all kinds of skills. To crowds of people. And so he was mesmerized by these men and there were loss older than him and gradually one by one. They took him under their wings. Yeah. And he he had a nickname. Joe the kid because he was the youngest. And he, you know, after not very long, he started beating the other these older men. What they'd been doing for years? I remember seeing him on the street, and he would set up on this corner that was two blocks from where I used to work, and you couldn't really see him. He was always hunched over very, right? That's right. So the reason he did that is because people are attracted to Sunita. They can't see properly. So it would arouse curiosity. And also when people are looking down at something it just makes it easier to to hold them there. Yeah. He would look help and catch people's eye. But no, he said, he always he was one of the main places he was at union square Greenmarket. Most people who've seen my dad does. Oh, yeah. We saw them at union square. And you know, there would be this huge crowd. And you couldn't see there's no way you could see what he was doing because huge crappy hind nothing drowsy crowd like a crowd. Yeah. That's right. And then I remember the moment when I opened up a magazine Vanity Fair magazine, I read a story about this person who sold peeler is on the street. So he's covered in potato flakes. All all day by night here. We get dressed up in beautiful suits and hang out with the most Tony in bars and restaurants, and he it right? Fabulous living doing this. Every single person who read that. So in your city said I know that guy, and I cannot believe it. So tell me about that you had other life is right. Actually, it wasn't really another life because first of all he he went to work in those fabulous. Which was one of the things that was so unusual about him. The only thing that he didn't wear with elegant shoes because you can't you can't walk and also like he did so much changing spots, for instance. And this again goes back to that tradition of these the mentors who taught him many many years ago when you go to work, especially in the street, you dress well because you don't want anybody buying thing because they feel sorry for you or anything like that. So when daddy even like, he works around Wall Street, you know, and they're all the the wealthy stockbrokers. One of them's pointed to one day, you know, instead like you've got a better than I have. So the elegant dress was really a lot of who he was as a salesman as well as going on. But you're right. I mean, he he used to go to the Pierre hotel, which is where she met his fourth wife and style who he adored she passed away a year before he did. She was an artist very elegant woman, and she would be that with with her friends at the hotel and people who had never met him before. But he was charismatic in a bar. I love champagne love the the good things in life. And you know, people couldn't believe you know, that that this is what he did today an hour ago. Yeah. Oh, people would would guess I wonder what he does, you know? And the idea that he is just a street trader, and so he passed away ten years ago. Almost exactly almost exactly. Yeah. Why did you start selling peelers after after he passed away? Well, the the main reason was that he passed away just a. A couple of weeks after he got the last big shipment from Switzerland. And he used to imports twenty five thousand pieces at a time. So there were all these boxes forty fifty boxes. Stacks up in his apartment, and I knew that I could sell them. And so that's that's really when I took his place. Really? And he had said to me he used to joke about it and say now, I've just ordered. I've just not a big big big delivery of peelers says you don't you don't want me to snuff it right now he says because that's your in Harrison and sure enough. Sure enough. That's what happened. And so I didn't work nearly as often as dads, you know, raising three daughters, and they were in school and. So I still I have one literally one bucks left. I want to sell but I don't want to sell. My goodness. Yeah. Yeah. Actually, a little less than than than a whole box. Yeah. So and I mean, I knew the pitch I knew how to sell it. But when he was alive, I was very reluctant to to sell the Peter. And I don't know why. Now, but I felt kind of intimidated and because he was so well known for selling the peeler and his whole. You know, his whole appearance and the whole package, you know, I didn't think that I could in any way approach that. But I I did. And it was. It was very bitter. Sweet, you know, every time I would sell at most seemed in Brooklyn at the Greenmarket borough hall, and as soon as I sit down people would come and all that. Who was an old guy selling it? Right. That was my dad. Oh that was your dad. Oh, we miss him so much. This is ten years after they still, you know, say oh, you sound exactly. Like your dad? I had a good teacher.
