"And I was going to bet on them and just try to have about 15 tickets. And of course, being a gambler at that time in your young Cavaliers had a horse in that I thought was an easy winner. His name was Carney's point. And I decided that some of my money on carnage points and my yeah, if I recall correctly, he got beat and I only ended up with three tickets on secretary, but that was all right three was enough. But it was a great experience. Yeah. Yeah, I can imagine. But just to be so close to him, didn't you even witness a young lady pulling a piece of hair out of secretariat? Well, that's a long time ago, but I do recall that. I was in the paddock. I was grilling a horse named fave count. It was one of I was very young. And so I was grooving this horse and I was working for Jerry Levine. He got a more experienced room to take the horse to the paddock. So I was walking around on the other side. And I remember turning and watching their secretary in front of me and they said he reaches up and just kind of turned one of his hair from his tail into her finger and just kind of give it a little Paul and he didn't even yeah, I didn't move an inch in L and of course she got something to remember for the rest of her life I guess. But I remember seeing that and it was quite I was impressed with how come he was in the paddock. He not much bothered him. Yeah, people will do just about anything for a souvenir like that, especially from a great horse, like secretariat visiting with trainer Dan vela here on trainer talk presented by facing tipton if you're just tuning in, Dan has been doing this since 1972, so a 50 year career and he has so many wonderful stories. Real quick before we move on, Dan, I want to pass this along a bit of housekeeping here for our listeners. This show, of course, presented by our friends at phasic tipton, facing tipping getting ready to host their winter mix sale in Lexington, Kentucky, which is supposed to start next Monday. We are under a ice storm advisory here in the bluegrass. So because of that phasic has decided to push the sale back one day. So the sale instead of being Monday and Tuesday next week, it will now be Wednesday Tuesday and Wednesday. February 8th and 9th to allow everybody to get in here safely and I think a wonderful move by facing tipton. Let's talk a little bit more about your relationship with Frank stronach in the horses that you had the chance to be around with him. What do you remember about the first time he met Frank and how that relationship came to be with you training for him? Well, I had I had it started a gentleman that worked for him. His name was Don Amos. And I had trained a little bit for I was just getting going and I had training to horse that dawn had sold at auction. And I got to know dawn, he would come by the barn. So yeah, I called him up one day, and I said, general Don, I'd love to get to meet Frank, strong. And I'd love to, you know, I mean, you got to be aggressive sometimes. You got to sell yourself. And Dons got me an interview with Frank and that's where it all started. We sat down and talked and we kind of hit it off right away. My father had been a machinist. He was there was a connection there. We talked a little bit about that. Frank was a machinist when he started out and yeah, next thing I know I had four horses in the barn and had some great success with a couple of them and it moved up from there. Which are some of the horses that you're never going to forget when you think back on your career, Dan, whether they were a dean of spring's horses or horses that were owned by other people that you were around, but some of the horses, when you say, boy, I've been doing this 50 years. I'm never going to forget this horse, or these horses. Yeah. One of my first jobs, I trained for Steve stab. He had affiliate names, agriculture. She was not a very big silly, not imposing. But might have been the fastest horse. I was ever around. We took her to I was training kind of in tandem with another trainer at the time, and for her staff role. And we took her to Europe and she got beat ahead and Frito obeyed a long shot. She was an absolute rocket. So I'll never forget her. You know, probably the best horse I was ever around. Well, not probably. He was ghost sapper was, you know, I mean, if you categorize horses allowance horses, their stay courses, there's grade one horses. There's classic horses. Then there's that category that's kind of mysterious almost. And I called them freaks. They're just rigs. They do things that your whole life, you watch horses and they can't do them. Secretary, it was that way. And I go shopper was much the same. I mean, you could watch him and some of his races and he would, you know, he'd run three quarters of a mile in sprint time. And then just keep on going. And horses shouldn't be able to do those things. And he could. I had the pleasure of breaking him as a baby and getting him ready. And send him out to Bobby frankel and it was kind of he was a bit of a lazy horse, so it took a while for him to really clue in, but of course, Bobby was one of the greatest of all times. And we would chat about him and stuff like that, very interesting, but if I'm not mistaken, first start of his life, I think he run one of the best buyers for a first time starter still ever. And ghost rapper was he was a top end horse that you only see a couple in your lifetime..

"And getting ready. It was a lot of fun to be in across from them that winter. I remember. Yeah, I love that spring training analogy. That's just so perfect. We have about two minutes before we have to get to our commercial break here at the bottom of the hour damn, but I did want to go back to a comment you made when you were talking about learning from Jerry Mormon. You also talked about being around Chris Rogers, who was an excellent writer. And there was a story you told in the article that Chris leman had put out a couple of weeks ago about breezing horses with Chris and one day you were on a stakes horse. He was not. And that turned into a really fun story. Tell me more about that. Well, those guys back then, I mean, you know, when Chris started riding, I don't think there were cameras watching the races. Were there. So you learned to do things that you could get away with, I guess. You know, like I said, I was a bit before my time. By the time I started that we did have cameras and you learned to do things. And they used to tag onto a horse's saddle cloth. And you know, that the two horses would go along together. The one couldn't pull away from the other. And Chris was just full of all that kind of stuff. I remember another time I was breezing horse with him and I'm on a very fast Philly where I'm not training track at wood wine. And I'm on a fast Philly and he's on a really good horse this time. And the boss says to me, he says, set a pace for this horse and you know he'll go buy you somewhere in the stretch and you know that's your job today. So I break off and I'm going like a bat out a heck. I'm on a fleet Nash rule of Philly and I turn into the stretch and I still got some horse. Well, of course you're young and you're competitive and it's Chris Rogers. So you think maybe I'm going to give him a hard time here, right? So we straighten away and I look over my shoulder to the right and I don't see him and I look over my shoulder to the left and I don't see him running where the heck is he? You know? And I look back to where we started to see if something went wrong. And of course, he was sitting right in behind me. He was just tailgating me waiting till I looked around and then he's just dropped switch leaves, dropped her into the inside of me and just went by me. I assume, you know, and then of course you panic and you kind of throw your horses head away too much and he just went by me and just yeah, and he's giggling as he went by and it was fun and nice to holy mackerel, I said, you know, you may be look like an idiot. And he said Danny, I almost won a grade one in Chicago and beat Nashville, doing the same thing. He said, I tailgated that guy right till the very end and he said I ducked inside and the horse seeing me and he didn't and I got beat ahead, but he said, I've done that to a lot of people anyway. Yeah, he was a character and he was fun to work with and he was an absolute genius on a horse and it was fun being around those type of guys and they taught you a lot. Just by being around them, just realize that you had to learn things about horses that nowadays, I'm not sure that we understand that part of horses as much as they did. What a fantastic story visiting with trainer Dan vela here on trainer talk presented by phasic tipton. We're going to get to a short break when I come back in the second half of the program. We'll.

"Dreaming that when you're a kid, but it didn't last too long. I hope you look pretty quick. What position did you play in football? Well, we call that middle guard. It was a defensive center. I played right across from the center. Yeah. I like the defensive line. I was pretty good at, I liked it. And that was just in high school. Just in high school, yeah. I played mostly I was a hockey player at that time. I mean, I played a lot of hockey, but in high school, we dressed all in play football. You had to have something in the winter time. Yeah, and every kid that grows up in Canada wants to be a hockey player, right? Back then, everybody was we had ranks in every street corner and the parks all had ranks and we played hockey in the summertime. We play on the street. You know, that was our passion back then, you know, basketball was getting bigger. And soccer and lacrosse was big, but hockey was the one. With your interest in other sports, did you ever think, well, maybe I won't make a career in horse racing. Maybe I'll do something different. No, I always knew horses were for me. Yeah, yeah, and it's been a relationship that has lasted 50 years for my special guest here, Dan vela here on trainer talk, presented by facing tipton. So you go to work and you start learning from some of the folks with the show horses and then you move on to working on the backside at woodbine. Where do things go from there? What was kind of the first moment when you said, man, this is going to be my life. Well, I knew right from the start, it's what I wanted to do. The person that kind of gave me the push in the right direction was a fellow from Western Canada named Jerry Mormon. Jerry trained for chef free farms, and I still train actually. It's an odd thing, but Steven shafts. Who I train for now, it was his father, Jerry, that it was my first real breakthrough job. I became an assistant trainer for Jerry Mormon and not a pretty solid education there. I worked with Chris Rogers, who was an outstanding rider and they were both great guys and great characters and aggressive horsemen and liked what they were doing. And that kind of where I turn the corner before that, I was, you know, you kind of know what you want to do, but you don't know how to get there. But yeah, it's Chris Rogers and Jerry Marvin, especially Jerry. He was he was the key for me to getting to the next level and learning how to work that much harder and learning about the horses and to spend a lot of time that worked very hard for quite a while with him, but enjoyed it. Yeah, you mentioned that education working with Jerry. What are some of the things that he taught you that have served you well throughout your career? Probably the biggest thing. I remember saying it many times. You know, they're each individuals. You have to treat them like you can't train horses, you know, you can't train them all the same. They're individuals. They have individual personalities. They have individual physical characters and he really was a big on that. And you had to learn what the key to each horse was. You know, what made them tech and what made them even better? And happy horse wins races. That was his thing. And I learned a lot about the character of horses. You know, over the years the way we get the vet has changed, you know, we don't train quite as aggressively as we used to. We don't run as aggressively as you know, I don't know if the courses have changed or we've changed or it's a bit of both, but yeah, the individual horse, that's the key to real success, I think. I can't tell you Dan, how many times I have had trainers come out in this program and mention that very same thing. Treat them all as individuals. The other word that comes up a lot is patience. Is that a big key? Well, if you don't have it when you first start, you learn it very quick because yeah, if you're not patient, if you I write everything in my books and my training charts in pencil because you have to have a plan, but in this business, you have to be able to change it very quickly. If you don't set a plan out, you're probably won't get to where you're going. But if you try to stick to it too hard, you'll probably have heard some horses on the way. So you have to be very flexible and they teach your patients right from the very start. You mentioned writing things down in pencil, are you still doing things the old way and doing things by hand? I do. It's the way my head works. I've been doing it that way for a long time. I have the old style training charts. I mean, we do our bookkeeping and stuff all that so I'm on computer now and I spend a lot of time reading about horses and stuff on the Internet, but the trading charts that I take to work every day are still in, you know, there's still this square boxes and I go a long daily with them and like I said, I do them in pencil, so we can adjust to what the horse needs. That term old school is often tied to people like suge magee and Bill Matt and Wayne Lucas because they've been around the game for so long. And they've been doing things a certain way and doing it at a high level for so long. And they really haven't, they've changed their approach, but they still do things as they used to do them in some respects. So Dan, when you think about what it means to be old school what does that mean to you as a horse trainer? Well, yeah, that's a hard one. I mean, I guess it's some of the things you are.

"Good evening, or maybe even good morning, depending upon which part of the world you are tuning in to today's show on Sirius two 19 XM two O one and so many of you also now choosing to listen to trainer talk and many of our other weekly talk shows via podcast all over the world on our website at horse racing radio dot net and various major podcast platforms. And I really want to thank you first and foremost for being part of our HRM family each and every week. It is truly a pleasure to be able to bring these shows to you every week throughout the year. I of course, in Mike penna, baron in the backstretch, happy to have you in the saddle with me once again for the next hour on the show trainers listen to. It is trainer talking. It's all presented by our friends at phasic tipton here on the horse racing radio network. Well, you know, 50 years is a long time. And it's a really long time to be doing the same job. And when today's guest first started working on the racetrack, the year was 1972. And to put that in perspective for you, Richard Nixon was president of the United States. Don McLean's American pie topped the music charts all in the family and Sanford and son were the top two television shows, but godfather had just come out and was the most popular movie of that year. The cowboys under coach Tom Landry defeated Don Shula's dolphins in Super Bowl 6 and a gallon of gas about this cost 36 cents. Secretariat had yet to become secretariat. He was only a two year old while his stablemate revered was busy winning the 1972 Kentucky Derby. That was also the time when a very eager and very determined teenager first arrived on the woodbine backstretch. 50 years later, he still showing up at that same barn area and at 66 years young. He's as passionate as ever about the sport he loves. Please join me in welcoming trainer Dan Bella to train her talk presented by phasic tipton. Dan appreciate the visit, my friend. Hello, how are you? Doing really well and really excited to hear your story. You know, you think about what you have accomplished in these 50 years. 860 career winners. Nearly 30 $9 million in purse earnings and you're a two time sovereign award winner as Canada's leading trainer. Boy, could you ever imagine when you first walked on to the woodbine backstretch that things would end up where they have? No, not really. I mean, let's be honest, they start out as a kid, you're living on the back side, your work and your groom and your walking hot and you know you're getting on some horses and your work your way up. But the dream for everybody, that stage of your life is to win a queen's plate and to train some horses and to fulfill all those dreams and to be that lucky and to be around great horses. You exceed your expectations and you're very lucky to do that. You know, Chris leman over at woodbine, who is in the publicity department, wrote a really nice article about you and about your career it came out about two weeks ago or so. And one of the things that he pointed out was that your introduction to horse racing came through your uncle. Tell me a little more about that. Well, my best friend when I was a kid was my cousin Mike and his father was my uncle Jim. They were vegetable farmers outside of the city and we used to spend our Sundays out there on the farms and I used to spend my whole summer there working on the farm and we had a great time. And he was absolutely passionate about horse racing. You know, back then, the racing farm was only, you know, maybe ten sheets of paper, but he used to go out and get the farm during lunch time and then after dinner he'd sit down in his chair and he'd read before him and eat market and we used to shoot the board area for the races there in the summertime and it was a big deal for me. And that's kind of where my passion for the horses started. He would always own a piece of a horse or a horse or whatever he could afford. But that's where it all started. He loved horse racing. And I caught a bug right away back then. I've got pictures from, I don't know, the early 60s at fort Erie in the summertime. Yeah, it was a lot of fun and that's where I got started. As I was reading that and just listening to you now I was thinking about the relationships that I have with my uncles and I have a couple of uncles that really enjoy going to the races. We have gone to multiple racetracks together. And you know it's so special to be able to spend that time with your family and do it in an environment and participating in a sport, even if it's just handicapping and betting on the races to do it in a sport like horse racing is just so, so cool. Well, sports 50 years ago sports were different. Also, there were more characters in sports back then. The extremes were a little more we've gotten a little more placid with what we do in sports nowadays, maybe you could call it a little more professional, but we've lost maybe a tiny bit of our flares. Some of the characters back then some of the jocks, Chris Rogers and sandy Holly came along a bit later. Avelina, Gomez, who was one of the greatest riders that ever lived and they interacted with the people on the back side, much more than. And what the betters and yeah, there was a lot of flair to all sports then, but horse race it was a big deal then..

So you really have to hope those readers in the first three episodes with that's kind of normal with a bookie by chapter three. You really want your reader hunt.

If the more calf gets near paris the less opposition will have on the last day. He was behind him. Struggling in front of the broom-wagon for a little bit and Eventually called a day. A biggest is actually one of the stories of we weren't going to cover at some point. The the rebirth of behind him. And we've been so focused on cavendish but behind me has also been really close to stage when this tour back to probably his best which is kinda gone. It's a story that's going on told in a way and maybe we'll ask. Connor swift are direst For more a by behind the and his trip he's like the race sonically. Well today i mean stage went for sap koos a guy who has often promised a result like this. You know it's another classic case of roget's was still in the race. He wouldn't have been in a position to win the stage. He's somebody's capable of for a long time and but when the responsibilities being given to him he sometimes struggled to deliver you know when he's given team leadership or when he's been given opportunities he really took it today and i was really impressed. With the way that you held off valverde. A wily was there was an interesting pattern again. Actually kind of explains what. I was saying before about the new patterns with these breakaway groups with lots of strong guys in there. There's really been a divine our thing in teams between the juicy. The real jesse guys. I mean the real jesse guys not the guys might ever transfer one day become a juicy writer and the guys who might have the potential to jesus writers don't have the mind for it and for stage wins. I think there's a case for sabco's if you don't give him too much responsibility you don't put too much burden on his shoulders and he goes for the stage. Wins is yeah. He's the kelly. I the long interview for fidel over with all and tell told me that the first five or six years of his career had been a nightmare because he was considered as a potential jesse container being the best young rider in twenty eleven and the five years. That followed said. we're nightmare you're under pressure. Every day you fear in the crash you fear into. Let your teammate sound. And he said the day when jonathan voters told him. Forget the gopher. Sage wins if it was a newborn rider and enjoy the job again. I think that most of the guys wear the front of the type of writers. you know they. they're great. writers are going to win a stage. Major to sage thoughts energy writers sept- coups is absolutely this type of rights. I had a message from lizzy banks to say nice to finally see set coups trying now the rest of us when we are not trying. Because i've said on the podcast before that. He just often looks so easy for sap coups when he's been lieutenant rogue lich there have been moments where he's sorry rug which has been struggling until this wheel and kucice just writing on air. You know he looks. He looks so sublime moderated by his task of servitude. He's a classic climber. You know who when things are going well for him and he's writing. Well it just looks so so easy for him on. This is a yeah. This is a success. That has been a long time coming. He lives in under. He's one of the many lives on. Jury said his girlfriend was on the climb on her parents think she's from barcelona and not was inspiration for him today. Don martin was actually very emotional. Finish talking about his wife and twin daughters being near the finish as well. So yeah you really choked up talking about that. We're seeing a a really interesting. Bothell for the king of the mountains are kind of long. Discredited competition is like a consolation prize. Either a writer on the podium as one almost banks or it's been one by somebody a modest writer really targeting. What we're seeing here are early four kentuckiana polls was on venar baffling for real quality writers. Our houses it's adding luster to this. Competition is one of the real interesting points in the race. Now there's mountains until wednesday. I'm in until almost thursday. So most of the last week will still be mountains so more excitement on the hills on the climbs and and given that. Now it's it's it's one of the most interesting conditions and that all these guys and all these teams are going for it. I'm sure we'll have really animated racist from the start and we the kind of crit- with today is probably going to be reproduced in in in the future stages which is which is rather exciting. Well i spoke to the man now in the polka-dot jersey while polls finished. Here's what he had to say.

"Road today in that move of big hitters super tough super tough As soon as i came up into the breakaway. I could tell it was going to be a really really hard day and honestly Headwinds on the on the last couple of climbs Did make it a bit easier but over the top of the envelope and then facials were just incredible. The pace was so high. And i spent a lot of time. up here in Apnea and door. I have an apartment in so resident here and i knew the climb super well And that is by far the fastest ever gone up. These climbs it was insane is interesting your team onion guys place highly overall but also men in the break is well. It's not just a sign of how far charters ahead of everybody else that you're allowed to go for you and i'm vicious as well. Yeah i mean. I think no matter what position you're in Even if we go was only a few seconds behind pogo charge. And i think it's just in our interest to be in the breakaway to. We need to come back because we wouldn't be able to follow rigo and pull him off the front to to get away from in the stage so if he does that in his own and we're ahead and then we're up there to help him and that's Just a If you can pull it off. Yeah so we see more of that in the final week. Yeah we hope we hope All we can do is just keep raising our bikes and Folks on our race and hope that rigo just Continues to stay solid nielsen pilots the ef education nipple writer i also spoke to mark donovan. The team dsm writer making his debut undeterred. Franz he rode the vuelta last year. He found himself in that. Very distinguished company today and not big breakaway. They've they've had a really tough tour team. Dsm but he seemed quite happy. The finish don martin just said he thought i was the strongest break. Ever been in the third of franz. It's not what it felt like. Yeah pretty much. Yeah looking around when a form that was like. Oh we've got about half of these guys can win today or more. Yeah it was pretty crazy. crazy schoenberg was looking good on i On you you're just Just to get into. But yeah it. Nice and i felt good day which just didn't have the legs on the final climb and then i had to be unlucky. Punchers slow punch while chain bike so it wasn't ideal changed much in the end this. There's a whole day in strong wind as well. Yeah it was just constantly ice on the back in the neck water all the time. It's kind of nice being in the car. And the fumes behind you all the time and then yeah it was There was a time when After the break. I formed on the returned onto the main road as a few attacks going and no one really wanted to take control but then luckily fda took control and they just about into a headwind both so that was kinda nice for everyone else to impress you. I mean in the big names in strong writers. But who particularly impressed you. Oh i gotta say The two french Guys who worked for go to america. He was in both my first the brakes. I've been in the volts as well then also Address as well. They just pulled all day. And then yeah i think everyone else is just Pretty happy to sit in the world. How are you feeling being sent to your. I started front. Feel really good today based how unlucky Trying to get into break so many times. It's just not quite worked out but today it's really did and hopefully going into the final week. I can yeah kind of build on this chances in the third week.

"Movies men in this in this race and in the end almost perfect scenario for this is perhaps controversial but i think part of i think the honest bingoed is kind of built up of the same composition. The same kind of disposition as taddei for gotcha and he's very calm. Very level headed very much an aggressive writer who stays in the wheel of who he needs to stay in the wheel of and so they're probably more comfortable leaving him to do that. Than maybe someone like la chew has sort of a more strategic slash team oriented way of controlling things. It's just kind of interesting to see. Maybe perhaps it's like a generational thing. I think it's more the he doesn't probably feel that he's earned his stripes. I i watched his body language. Finished we'll hear from him. In a moment i. I watched greece near men. Come in and give him an embrace him and say you know great job. And i am the way they i don't think bingo himself has any issue. I i think he is pinching himself.

This is one reason why not here anymore. He doesn't like andorra. Francois your fan i guess you get used to dislike. It's not like monaco. Like cheap monaco in the middle of the mountains. You know because at least well. I'm in the architecture at i. don't want to overlap. the you know get are. Architecturally is pretty similar. And you've got the same luxury shops and boutiques but but only monaco newcomer for anything. Whereas in dora while you. Can you know judy free. So people actually come here to buy cheap stuff. You know. so what. We heard from jewelry and last night's episode of higher. He loves under. Obviously lots of writers. Levine dora thirty. Eight of them of the is starting. This of franz live and under. I'm sure they live here because they love it. They love it. Charms it's month. I've his allies. There's nothing to do with the tax situation airtel house.

I recognize recognizes team kit and he was standing outside a an apartment block which she said was home to ten world to a pros and coming down the mountain into the capital here. We can't passing professional writers who are training or going to see. The children fronts one of the other things that i think scores against door me on for line list every time. We're here as you can probably hear. The traffic is horrendous in the capital city here. But that's partly because france francis here if we were here cited. The tour de france obviously wouldn't be as busy as but you've always got sense of it being very clogged up anyway. Unexciting stage today. Let's hear oh a by cates. Not doing it i will. We started in france and siri and we came out to on dora. Laviola with we can share responsibility on this. Do you want to chip in stage. Fifteen hundred and ninety one point five kilometers a really really difficult sage. Lots and lots of claiming and the first attacker of the day. Was thomas again. Who else what form that. She was not so much a breakaway. It was more a split in the penalty. Wassenaar said at the finish. He had no actually intended to go in the break and found him south there by accident. We did wonder about the team tactics because they've of course only got five writers than the race. Is this gonna be your about. Boby is obviously like i know the the surgeon is. Yeah the ins and outs but it was interesting. Yes because they left yoenis bingoed. Who is the guy in the part of the peleton with only mike tennyson which was kind of perplexing to me. Because i don't quite think they're the same size so that if something happened to says bike who's going to anyways it was. It seemed like kind of an iffy. Move but actually. I think things kind of coalesced as the time went on when they had all of course like not spoil. What happened at the end but Successful day for them suspension and at the same time came back to help eunice in the end dot k. Obviously were they disorganized or was this actually just part of the plan or did they have a road. Captain that was. This is actually quite an interesting question is you can reverse engineer true. We can sit back at the end of the day and reflect on An absolute masterclass from visible because they fought on three different fronts. And really you can. Argue came up trumps on all three fronts. Three writers in the breakaway. Which as you say. Kate was perplexing with you on his finger. Goal in the fight for the podium left. I mean with my tennis but you could say isolated behind not with a climbing dumbest though Or click with the move at stephen cries and set koos from team. Any aus- grenadiers. Were jonathan castro vehicle and dylan van. Barra don martin. Mike woods. were there from israel. Starts up nation vincent vincenzo. Nearly jillian bernard kenny. Out of soul from trek. Second afraid harder. An amusing from a belgian colleague of ours who had phoned edward tunes the other night and he was asked who he was sharing with he said lewis squall the shark to its nearly apparently shouted across the room. I feel more like a goldfish in this third of france. So they were well represented in that front group fleet. Was there as well. No right that we find for one hundred verde them through palm digi who've not done an awful lot in this sort of france and maybe because a few of them i think thinking offering from stomach problems including w. do and bruno mirai and i saw him in real pain at the end looking for have pcr tests and he was doubled over with punching stomach and luton pain. He did an awful lot of work. I mean there was a moment in the race where groupama. Fd he really took responsibility with mirai and madonna. Alan valentine mike wass who were obviously working to help wwco do try and win the stage and there were other writers there including catanha obviously in the fight for the kingdom owns jersey as polls. Who is there to michael matthews research to try and get points in the green jersey competition so that was a big old group at the front behind that forgot. You forgot barring victorious everybody because it was instrumental in the fight for the king of the mountains. Sorry kate sorry you're right. My motto more rich was there. I think that's why he wants to make. That's because no it's because what polls was there. And he sprinted for king in the mount. he's now in the king of the mountains jersey because he sprinted and pulls was there didn't they. Yeah but he was there with lots of other people dylan tunes yes he had helped so front burner more was there. I need to say we covered surgery when i was there on. Npr latour coverage. Everybody a lot of people there where teams small team. Let's let's say team. Let's upfront that you know. Had instrumental roles as presence was significant absolutely right.

"Tip final tip when you're considering katie piece elect and kindle villa. What your value is. How much do you feel you bring the table. And how much do you think you should be compensated for that. If you're just looking for an avenue to just publish 'cause you love the craft of writing this might be for you but if you're the type of person that doesn't really want to grind it out for say twenty five cents for every purchase or twenty two cents There's also the risk versus reward because katie p select is a proven commodity. Many people have made a lucrative living going to kdp select and some continue to do that whereas some people don't even katie piece left at all they just do it on their own and the wide but we know the proven we. It's all about the devil you know. And so with kindle vela. They're really the devil. We don't know just yet so be very careful. It's going to be about risk versus reward. Because you're probably going to have to write about three plus episodes. Get that all queued up before launches so that way you can have people reading and binging your content and you can keep up with that demand Really there's not too much of a risk if you ask me because you're only out a time. Let's say you took all the time to write. You got it edited you gotta proof-read you got it formatted you gotta cover for and such like that. Let's just say for instance you find. Kim avella doesn't work out for you. All right on. Enroll it from kindle villa and move it over to katie pete and trout katie piece select or maybe even publish it. Why there's so many options you can do here. It's really no negative in my opinion. Hey folks do me a favor subscriber.

"I've got this cool idea that i envisioned as a serial. And here's it's time but but and here's here's the thing that kind of made me hawes Because the readership is different. It's skews younger And my readers for my existing series of cozy. Mysteries are older. They're cozy mystery readers stews skew a little bit And there are less so there. Perhaps less likely to pick up can develop. Who knows though. It's not you know lunch out. We don't know but that was kind of a decision point for me that if you have an readership that is a little bit older. Or even if you don't because we know that serial readers are not a complete overlap with novel-readers you're gonna be reaching a new audience not necessarily your existing folks and they won't necessarily be folks you can pull into your novel audience. So that is a consideration. If you're deciding whether or not to make a go of it with kindle bella argue truly exploring a new audience or are you letting yourself get distracted by the new shiny thing and that was something that has really kind of bothered me for a few weeks and why. I really put off recording this episode. You know and. I've i've put a lot of effort into my cozy mysteries the past few years and on top of that. I have a Another project going on with children's books at i'm working on this summer and into the fall and so that's already a new audience children's picture books and go. Don't cozy mysteries. They don't go together. I've already made one decision to split my audience so this would be yet. Perhaps a third branch of that and did i really want to go down that road because that comes with extra marketing extra strategizing extra a lot of things and you know that's a consideration to make. So i really grappled with whether i was being distracted by the newest shiny thing instead of doubling down on what i knew worked.

"Sort of system for kindle valla as well but again we don't really know so that's one thing that we can at least kind of we kind of know kind of extrapolate now. What do we know about the readership of kendall valla. We know about the readership of cereals on other platforms and from talking to other authors from reading the posts on facebook groups other social media about authors who are heavily involved in cereals. We know that these readers do skew younger than the general reading population. We know that there are some genres like why a romance that do really well in cereals and we know that they're probably they're less likely to Jump to novels than near someone who maybe downloads a free book in. Ku they might enjoy that author and then go buy their other novels Or other free to them. Book in that's in kindle unlimited then go by other novels that aren't in kendall unlimited that. They're they're novel consumers but cereal readers aren't necessarily novel-readers there you know there's some overlap but it's a different market altogether. So what does this museum when we think about these things. And what does this mean in terms of making a decision on whether or not to pursue kendall allah. Because i'll be honest. I i can't i can't go through everybody's everybody's intricacies end and thoughts on this but i'll tell you guys a mind because i was really excited by this idea and i i've been interested in celery cereals for a while. It was a structure that i like And as a podcast the idea of the weekly content is definitely appealing to me but it was something that i'd had several ideas that kind of came too late for the cereals phenomenon design the fad was over. I had one that. I envisioned first cereal. And then i. I could bleed and packaged it into a book and actually to touch back on one thing. We do know about kindle bella. They're not looking for books broken up and they're not looking for content. That's freely available elsewhere. Those those are the content freely about billable elsewhere thing. That is something that you can't put on vella. So i have now kind of barnes. My chances to do that story developed. Because i patched it up into a novel instead of doing a serial but i have some other ideas for things that were cereal and i thought maybe one day. I'll find the right forum for this. Maybe when i have time and now that i've developed by illustration skill. I'll turn this into a comic an ongoing comic. But now i've like okay..
34. Lets talk about save-a-dive kits and Healthways an original scuba equipment provider - burst 6
"Several months ago, I did a segment on voight. One of the original five scuba equipment manufacturers in the United States. As a reminder, those original five were decor. US, divers swim master Voi-, and health ways, and we know that void bought swim master in the early nineteen sixties. Today. I want to continue the discussion on these original five with a look at health ways. My research took me on some interesting twists and turns. A relay what I pieced together. But I'll caution. The things might not been. Things may have been a little bit different than what I present here. First. Let's talk about the founder of health ways. That was Richard Klein. Richard was born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, six in Maine. And he enlisted in the marine. Corps at the age of fourteen. Back then I guess you could get away with lying about your age. While he was in the Marines Richard studied calisthenics in bodybuilding. and. When he was discharged, he ended up in Atlantic city acting as a strong man. That's when he was discovered by a paramount pictures executive who brought him out west to the paramount studios where his job was to make. The movie stars Look Fit. While in his job, at Paramount Richard Started, a company called health ways. Hollywood and Nur tagline was America's way to health. The company had a wider range of fitness equipment and early nine thousand nine hundred fifties. They had water sports. Department that included things like Basques spear guns. And Fins and they called the Finns Webbie's. In one thousand, nine, hundred fifty four health ways obtain distribution rights to the LG. Declare regulator. If you WANNA learn more about LG Arpan. There's a great article in one of the old journal of diving histories by I'd liberal shelf. You can go and do some research on that. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, six, Richard Hired, Richard, E. Dick Anderson to establish a scuba equipment department. Diver Dick Anderson is interesting, Pioneer and scuba, and I'll probably have to do a podcast just on his accomplishments. They're pretty extensive. Diver. Dick also brings on Sam Lecoq to help him design house ways own regulator. They introduce their double hose regulator and name Scuba. I guess the copyrighted the name. Scuba I read somewhere that because of this copyright. US divers had to go with the term aqualung. The scuba regulator was produced between nineteen, Fifty, seven and nineteen fifty-nine. During this time both Dick Anderson and Sam la coke had left health ways. Sam Start at sports ways another manufacturer and produced a regulator that he called water lung. The water long. Caused some litigation with US divers because they were using the term aqualung. Don't know how that turned out. By one, thousand, nine, hundred, Fifty, eight Dick Anderson rejoined health ways, and he was the chief engineer of research. By nineteen sixty, the company was producing a new model called Scuba Deluxe. Health wise also developed scuba. Pack Harness. The Scuba Star Scuba air in something called the snark. Air SORTA like a snorkel with a pony bottle on it. By nine, hundred, sixty two. It looked like the company was developing a line for professionals called scuba pro. Well Richard Klein hired Bonin and Gustav Delay To head. Up this line. But. Unfortunately health ways went into bankruptcy on December nineteen, sixty two. And you'll find Dick Bonin and Gustav Della Vella Bought Scuba Pro for one dollar. And started what we now know today as scuba pro. But wait, there's more. And this is where things get a little hard to reconcile. Richard Klein unfortunately died in nineteen, sixty three. But health wage did not. According to Alec Pearce on one of these youtube videos, health ways continue to make regulators for scuba pro. I tried to find out more about the bankruptcy, and it took me to a document from the Small Business Investment Company Program from August one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty three. Near as an entry that shows health ways of having sales of two point, nine million dollars with ninety six employees and a prophet of twenty, one thousand eight hundred dollars. It looks like they got some investment money and statement said they were on the road to profitability and operating in the black. Somewhere along the way health ways was acquired by elden industries in Los Angeles. From what I gather Eldin was a may have been a toy company, and it's really hard to find out information about them. In any event, the last thing I could trace was nineteen seventy-one Scuba Cadillac from health ways that showed it as being a subsidiary of elden. I also read along the way that they sold scuba equipment to sears Kmart nine, thousand, nine hundred seventy S. I wasn't able to actually nail down when health ended. So my journey to find out more about one of these original five US scuba manufacturers provided some fascinating twists and turns and Lake Oj all journeys I passed a few interesting side roads. Some I went down. And others yet to be explored. Hope. You enjoy this look at health ways.

That's a violation of the Constitution which requires Senate oversight of these key positions according to a lawsuit filed by to Washington DC and Idaho based conservation groups. And they're just a freewheeling detouring around the constitution in allowing these lower level political appointees to be running a show Peter Jenkins is senior counsel for Public Employees Environmental Responsibility the overall pattern is to weaken the environmental bureaus and allow state interests in private extractive industry interest particularly in the case of Bureau land-management to be able to call the shots.

Heads but the group's suing have long been suspicious of William Perry pen-li in particular leading the B. M.

He now manages over two states and private interests but in a recent interview. Pen-li told me that is not part of president trump's agenda regardless of what I've said in the past the one thing is clear is I'm a marine. I understand how to follow. Orders follow orders in this case in a statement the trump administration called the lawsuit that seeks to oust penalty and David Vella the park service.
