"Can help you out. All right. Thank you. Gotta Danny, I appreciate you calling this morning. 8772134 Lewis are number this is Melissa Who's in Westmont. Melissa. Good morning Urine. How Smart's radio. The morning will love you. Love you love yourself. Thank you. What's going on? Um, I have a I have a new house. And our master bathroom. Come the faucet when I need to make the showerhead turn on the faucet like creaking and warbling. Crazy. Is that something we can take without having to call a plumber? Yeah, Maybe. Here's what I want you to do have have you showered yet today? No, Let's not forget our personal hygiene, even on the weekends. Okay, So when next time you're in the next time you're in there when you birthday suit, Does it screech right away? Or does it screeched like once it starts to warm up a little bit. While it doesn't scream till I pull the thing like if I was just taking a bath making no, no, no, no. But in other words, when you run the hot water and you lifted, it starts screeching right away. Right away and then occasionally a stop during a shower, But not all. So I bet the screeching is coming from the actual spout. So this is what I want you to do. When you're in there, and you're you know you're showering. I want you to take your hand firmly and cover the spout like you're going to block the spout. And so so no water comes out. If you do that, and the screeching goes away. You need to replace the spout. Okay? And just go ahead. Hold way once again. So now now we need to figure out what kind of spout you have. Ah, And you can maybe do this before you go in the shower, But this will be if you put your hand on the bottom of the spout. Okay, the bottom that you can't see and you go towards the wall. If you feel a little like cut out on the bottom of the spout. Like a little way where it's notched a little bit. There is an out there's an Allen wrench. Screw that's up in there. That if you have an Allen wrench for you, Khun, borrow one or get one. Whatever you're gonna unscrew that, and then that spot you're going to kind of twist it and pull it and come out and you'll have a copper pipe sticking out of there. I'm gonna ask you one other one question. How old is your house? Up for it was built in 70 thick. Okay, so chances are what I just described is what you have. Now you're going to take that spout to the hardware store and you're going to say hi. I need one of these. And they're gonna hand you one of us and you're going to slide it. You're going to slide it back on and you're gonna line it up and you're gonna tighten that screw And you're going to take a shower and it's not going to screech anymore. I'm going to be super happy. But then I want you to one other thing when you're there by a little what? What color is the tile? White. Bye, little squeeze tube of silicone. Ah Bayelsa crease tube of not silicone latex. White cock. Okay. And then after you set that all up, and we confirm that it's not squeaking, and everything's great and you have to hear the whistling anymore. You're gonna put a little bee to caulk around that just the water doesn't get behind it. Okay? And I'm glad my husband will think all of this downstairs so he can do it. Right. So the key The first thing is, is ah, is that that is if that little gap That I talked about on the bottom side is not there. Then that spout maybe unscrew Tze from So long. But they'll still have a replacement spot for you there, too. Okay. Okay. So give that a shot and you should be able to fix it yourself. Congratulations on the new house to you. Ah, I appreciate you listening to the show. It's 9 30 in the morning when we come back It's our just text me segment. So if you want to send us a couple text messages will answer those after the news, But right now it's time for WG and radio news..

"And I found I think there was ah broadening of the scope of my theology through that. My understanding of who? God Waas in his kindness that intersected with my own father heard that And at the time these things were happens, happening sort of concurrently. And Yeah, I think that was really sort of eye opening to me. And so then I began to value surfing much more. Because now intersected with my faith right and intersected with my spirituality in intersected with my concept of God, and therefore I was able to do it with a feeling of gratitude and never a feeling of guilt. There's a lot of guilt and surfing's I think we have to put the rest of our life on hold. Oftentimes it demands some time of you. Yeah. And so I think that that idea of kind of expanding your theology is fascinating. Would you say? I don't know There was something in in Kind of vastness of the ocean. The beauty of the ocean. The playfulness of surfing. I mean, would that all factor in or tell me more about how maybe Ocean or surfing expanded this the sense of theology for you. First of all, I saw Intentionality in creation, right? I really I have grown up surfing Rincon still where I surf all the time, And it's a perfect wave. Yeah. And when you look at the structure of it It's easy for one to think this is designed. Uh, there's intentionality behind this, and then me believing in God and being a Christian. Why, Why would God created like this? Well, he created this for us to enjoy a some time and eternity past God in his love and in his wisdom looked and said Tomic. The coastline like this all makes storms work this way. All event bath imagery that works this way and they'll be these waves and people are going to enjoy him so that I think was profound. And not open up my understanding. Um And then Yeah, you know, the vastness of the ocean, the tactile quality of it. One's own smallness when you're and I think all of these things intersect. I think there is something to that when you're surfing, at least is is you You can feel so powerless. Sometimes out there. You can feel that you are at the whims of something greater happening around you. Which to me? There's so much metaphor there. Not just in Christianity. But I think in any in any kind of spiritual practice, don't you think? Yeah, absolutely. I think As people in general, we tend to overvalue ourselves and have an inflated sense of self and maybe ego, and I think that all spirituality aims at Ringing the ego down a bit, because I think human happiness thrives when we consider ourselves less. When we consider others more. Him when we see ourselves as Underneath. A benevolent God. I think that the human happiness Thrives in that condition in the most spirituality aims for something like that, at least certainly a certain humble quality is kind of a through line. I think Yes. You know? You know, You said earlier, too, that you grew up in a house that was very Christian. And I know there's a There's an interesting story about your father who started and I think your mother, too, who started Channel Islands that they went through a major conversion. And if I have the story corrective has something to do with trying to cross the border with drugs or something like that. Do I have that right? Yeah, well, it's too late Sixties on the coast in California, and you know, the late sixties were what they were Neither us we're alive, but right only imagine, And Yeah, my parents were running drugs from Mexico up to this area in Santa Barbara Wow, and had a VW bus where they would remove the floors and the walls and they were full of drugs. They got busted for doing that. And they both went to prison when Dad went to prison for eight months, and they both met Jesus in prison separately. My mom tells a story being in jail here in Santa Barbara, and there's a local Christian college in our area here. Westmont Westmont College. Yeah, and so the Westmont kids would go visit people in jail. And so some girls from Westmont went to go visit my mom or whoever was in jail at the time My mom happened to be there, and they were talking to her about Jesus and the need for the forgiveness of sins and how Jesus provides out through the cross, and they were telling my mom this and my mom looked at them and said, Well, I'm not a sinner. And they looked at my mom and said Terry. You're in jail. Yeah, and that there was a light bulb. They went off for her, and she had a conversion experience. And then my dad had his own in prison and when they came out Everything was different. So they had these things independently of each other. Yeah, which is kind of interesting. Oh, yeah, So they then they meet up again And as you said, their life is very different and Gosh, I mean, I'm thinking of Southern California late sixties early seventies was there Was there a community that they were a part of, or was this kind of in the air? Then what? What would that have been like for them? I think they're new. They're new path. Yeah, I hear a lot of stories about them hosting Bible studies in China and surfboards. Yeah, like that. At the retail store Retail store. Yeah, they would host Bible studies. And I've actually met people from around the world who were like, Hey, I went to a Bible study at your parent's store in the early seventies, and I got saved. Why all my life to Jesus and I've talked to people who said I would go to get aboard from your dad and he would sit down with me in the shape of a room to say before I make you a surfboard. I want to tell you about Jesus. Wow. Pretty like bold stuff. Very body. Austan stuff..

Interview with Jim Seimas Sports Editor of the Santa Cruz Sentinel

"A very special guest the sports editor for the Santa Cruz Sentinel 23 time Associated Press sports editor award-winner Jim seimas, Jim. Welcome to the show off you drop. Thanks for having me. Appreciate it Jim and I have had the awesome opportunity of meeting each other in a couple of different capacities over the last year or so first. I met you as an intern for the pajaronian wage when I was reveley scholar studying under Brad kava at Cabrillo and then later, you know in my role of sports and Information Specialist at Cabrillo and you obviously still with the Sentinel we wanted to be on the show today because Danny and I are both making money in our careers as writers, you know, we do writing here and there and I guess you could say that we had an innate interests in people who not only right but also write for the Sentinel because we've had on Ryan Masters before a former Sentinel writer who body surfed at wage. Rick's back in I think 2006 that Joe is that the year that he at Mavericks something like that. I'd have to double-check his old writings, but it was early mid two thousand. This may be late home or remembering and Ryan was an amazing interview. He was really fun and we kind of learned our lesson that when it comes to having guests on the show, you really want to look for people who are comfortable using their words took a story and who have a lot of experience kind of funneling down their information, but for somebody like me who grew up reading Hunter Thompson and a lot of writers that came originally from a sports writing background. I've always had this this Romanticism if you will of of what a sports writer is and that was kind of pushed ahead by working for Tony Nunez who was at the time the sports editor at the potter onia now, he is the managing editor and you know working with you and meeting Julie and leading one and I guess it's really cool meeting these people who spend dead. The the bulk of their time living in sport and and kind of articulating and taking sport out and a big part of what I've tried to do during my time to Cabrillo is digitized r-sport make them available for streaming online. Mostly for the purpose of trying to let more people get a chance to a common experience that activity as we enter a world following this covid-19 Choice. It's not following yet. But has we live in this kind of post covid-19 world the time before fans will be allowed back to watch sports happen will probably come after Sportz get back underway, which means that people like us are all of a sudden going to be really pushed back to the Forefront and be creating this bridge to connect people with this activity that they truly love and care for or players or teams or whatever. So kind of from that launching point. Where where did you first get started as a writer and what made you decide that that way? Are you were going to you know, keep the bills paid? Was funny cuz I interviewed so many kids that are college committed and asked what they're going to major in and half of them don't know and I'm fine with that. But I and then there's other kids who do they knew in fifth grade that I wanted to be a sportswriter. Excuse me. I have some allergies here. So I, every now and then around fourth fifth grade page and initially wanted to be like the San Francisco Giants announcer and there's only two of them and I know like connection to baseball whatsoever other than being a fan and I kind of even figured out that age like hey there I you know X ball players are getting these jobs. You're not going to get one and then, you know, just taking radio television type stuff and you know if I had a face or voice for neither, so I just kind of jumped into you know, a fifth grade. We did a little writing project. Would that where we had our books published or bound at least and I can't remember it was unbeknownst to me boss. So maybe in a contest and I wasn't a very good writer, but it won an award and I was very happy about that. I still have that book in my basement. I would like to say it was probably like Game of Thrones before Game of Thrones happened, but far simpler only three pages. So, you know, I did my own artwork for it with you know, drawings and swords and blood. Anyway, that was awful. I was hooked. I obviously don't like didn't read recently like a large audience at all, but I have so much fun writing that I really enjoyed creative writing in junior high school besides that my writing was absolutely atrocious growing up all my papers were covered in red ink from the teachers and that kind of was like the kitchen me ask to like. Hey, let's let's try harder at this. Let's try and figure out how to construct a sentence a little bit better and and your thoughts and I'm specimens. I'm still battling today, but I remember I try not to be sports editor wage. Junior High and the junior high paper is pretty much all song dedications and this and that and very little of substance but I got beat out for that position and took still enjoyed writing and then I did I did a couple of years on my high school paper at Westmont high and Campbell. And again, I did poorly in this like a British literature class. So I actually took off journalism twice you're only allowed to take it once but I knew that's what I was going to go into and you know, so and after that I went to West Valley College in Saratoga and I did far too many semesters on their page Church went to San Jose State did far too many semesters on their paper. I wasn't really like set on graduating. I was having so much fun on each step. Excuse me, boss. So on each stamp learning so much, you know when you were

"Now speaking to Westmont in just a moment before we do that I want to go over very quickly the doctor felt see this little moment that happened he was testifying on the hill and was it someone from the G. O. P. ask a question I had played a few weeks ago a flashback of faculty I believe back in March or February I can't remember when because March thirty was March thirteenth well that's when we pull okay that's what it came from basically saying master silly in this kind of situation and he was asked yesterday whether he feels bad about that and you know the whole thing I I think that beloved South Sea and the GOP they're the bad guys on this because they want to open up and they care about the economy was just horrible only a cruel person would want a thriving economy we all know that but I will tell you we have the two clips here felt she does not do a good job answering this question he doesn't really answer the question he just gets us self righteous about it so go ahead and hit the GOP of the was in the center of the house that he was speaking I believe is and I guess it's from the GOP so go ahead and do you now regret not advising people more forcefully to wear masks earlier okay we're gonna play that K. let me explain to you what happened back then should be a yes or no no there's more than a yes and no by the tone of your question I don't regret that because let me explain to you what happened at that time there was a paucity of equipment that our health care provider is needed who put themselves daily in harm's way of taking care of people who are ill we did not want to divert masts and P. P. away from them to be used by the people okay so that makes a lot of sense except that if you go back to early March when he was asked about mask that is not the reason that he gives he sort of scoffs at the idea that mask will help in the situation and I don't believe now we have a clip and I don't remember the whole thing but the clip that I have and what he's talking about mask he does not mention healthcare workers he basically says it's a silly idea go ahead right now in the United States people should not be walking around with masks you're sure of it because people are listening really closely to the right now people should not be what does no reason to be walking around with a mask when you're in the middle of an outbreak wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block of a drop list but it's not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is an orphan there are unintended consequences people keep fiddling with the mask and they keep touching their face so that to me that is the that is that he did not answer the question because you go back to March he's basically saying it's not a good idea and it doesn't help all that much I think that he believed more in social distancing and I don't know why this ballot you can't just go yeah I got it wrong he's in a way he's a he's a maybe a little more refined to people but he's kind of trump ask in that he can be all over the place yeah he's a little beautiful statement I gave it was perfect statement I gave about this was absolutely perfect they say it's not but it is that was then and now we're not gonna play that game I right now yes then no but it was perfect that's all okay we're gonna play that game thank you Dr Donald Sauchie that leads me into this so let's do this.

V. one of the very best indicators you can watch remember we got some we had news this week about the jobless claims and consumer spending I would put that all in the old inn on useful economic data category consumer spending plunging sixteen point four percent in April again of course it did what why wouldn't have so you're gonna get a ha it literally a hundred new stories about that for every major news outlet which is fine you got they got a report about it but it actually doesn't tell you nothing of course retail spending fell in April because nobody's open stores or restaurants closed all cross country course it went down sixteen point four percent clothing accessories down eighty percent of course electronics and appliances down sixty furniture down sixty sixty percent I'm I'm of course it was down the gas stations down thirty percent makes total sense now interestingly non store retailers online up almost ten percent so obviously you've got this big this big huge rotation in the economy and obviously Amazon a huge contributor to that as people turn online shopping again we've been doing this for twenty years now but it's just accelerated we probably have fast forwarded a full decade and that's why you're seeing more and more traditional retailers taking hits again not the sun rell it's not that it's not interesting it's not that we we we don't want to ignore it but it's not useful economic data for where are we headed from here what is useful are things like measuring gasoline meaning how much are we buying gasoline that means measuring traffic how much your people back out on the roads I think restaurant it is really interesting because it is the one of the most difficult barring let's say live events if you go back your restaurant is one of the biggest best indicators of life back to normal you're you're okay to get about your house drive your restaurant then sit around other people and have other people serve bring food CO you are you are very much venturing back into this economy so as restaurants go I think so goes the the broader sense of how how significant of a true re opening we're looking at and to go over some interesting S. R. date in just a minute we we will go to phones here but we get Georgia first mover obviously we we we got made fun of a little bit some some of the the choices optically I don't think we're great bowling alleys and tattoo parlors on day one I probably could've done a better job at some of the things we actually re opened but again we did it and the signs have been encouraging reprieve this only back on April twenty fourth it's may seventeenth so this is this is not it wouldn't just reopen and I think that's important add the next several weeks of really telling because it'll show data from multiple weeks since we've been back out in the world at least to some extent you go back to if you go all the way back to April twenty fourth you're looking at April twenty fourth which is that Friday it's been it's been a it'll be this next Friday before weeks as it's been a while now we continue to see in in in what's called the three weeks that we've seen we continue to see Kobe nineteen testing increase in a in a significant way instead of Georgia in the percentage of positive cases decline in a in a very significant way and mortalities continue to climb perhaps most importantly we've seen hospitals be able to maintain capacity remember that's what fighting the covers about mean to hospital capacity spreading this fires out buying us some time and buying us hospital capacity because we need to treat future cases without those hospitals being overwhelmed that's why the I. H. M. E. models the institute for disease modeling evaluation Diogenes got so much press it way into what the White House uses you you hear doctors a doctor because don't del Rio for Emery what we we we spoke he he says like these are the best guys out there they're out of the they're out of Washington and in the beginning I think the models actually weren't amazing and they were the way overestimated cases and and hospital capacity that's okay because it helped us it pushed us forward to take this seriously enough to be able to do social physical this is a unit and that worked that helped flatten the curve now they've updated those models almost they do it multiple times per week and maybe even added in when the attitude when shot at St shut down and then now when states every open because they're tracking mobility they're looking at cell phone data to show aggregate movement around the city's obviously more movies more people are out about the models are getting better and better and better as they continue to update the variables that really matter so you get that's what policy makers a look at that they continued to have better better forecast in the note that I sent out this week or just yesterday to the families and clients that we work with about two thirds in the state of Georgia the other author of the third outside of the state of Georgia I I show the Georgia chart hospital beds available over eight.

"S. meteorologist Kirk knowledge looking ahead to the weekend find my forecast ten times on the WSP radio Westmont snow tomorrow I want to talk about this given the rant that I just created you can go find a podcast about the review it but I want to talk about it seems to me a multi not turn my thing off yeah I think I feel like I'm doing everything right but I'm doing well it seems to me that AOC I don't know Bernie so much but A. O. C. is a proponent of something called M. M. T. it's modern monetary theory and I'm just reading right from the web Investopedia everything's PPO does confessed pedia modern monetary theory is a school of thought whose ideology often differs from mainstream economics MMT posits that countries with fiat currency that's ours it's that's currency that's not backed up by gold or something like that it's backed up just by the faith of the government that they will take care of it and come through so countries with fiat currency like ours modern monetary theory believes can never really become insolvent because if they experience a financial deficit deficit we now twenty four point five trillion dollars in debt that's our overall debt the deficit I think is up to something like four trillion this year because of what we're doing now according to this theory you can always print more money and we owe it all right but I have a lot of fun with AOC at her ideas I disagree with her ideas I disagree with her in being enamored with socialist not only socialism what appears to be a south American version of socialism which is the worst kind of a bad bunch but it's I can't get around the fact that is that not what we're doing right now and even before the virus when we what we wear it when we were twenty two trillion dollars in debt and our deficit was between one point five and two trillion a year now our debt is bigger than our yearly GDP so that means our debt is larger than our entire economy in any given year and I want to talk to west about this tomorrow as much as we all on radio would make fun of the concepts the AOC has is she not winning right now this is are we not engaged in this modern monetary theory which says it doesn't matter because you can never really default because you can print more money I would have a discussion about who believes in this theory and who doesn't and also the irony that apparently no matter what we believe philosophically we're all fans of this theory now but you know C. N. N. as in gonna bring it up because you might change the channel and you might actually learn something but we'll try to do it here in entertaining fashion I what do you have an headlines here all right president trump has White House cabin fever guys and is eager to hit the road again you're going excuse me are you you want to get out to you tell you want you want rallies is that if you wanna go back to the rallies well there aren't enough rooms in the way it has to keep away from Melanie and Aaron and I get a little bored get the really a lot and but I think that there was so little time and and I had a lot of time yesterday leading up to the Daily News brief that I could express it best in sun by demented done and done at Seattle parity Flores little parity following the road again I can't wait to get on the road again hi Greg this year at me again I can't wait to be on the road game vote again because the BGO and had I have a bunch of.

"Matters here Sunday morning Westmont your host in the middle of a clause I economic shutdown not everything is shut down their industries that are hurting so badly in the next part about the carers act and I know that we're interested in trying to figure out how much our checks are going to be and I'm gonna keep answer questions about that today are similar recovery rebates are checks in the mail twelve hundred dollars per person twenty four hundred dollars per family five hundred dollars per child under the age of seventeen so you could get it again you get the credits here could be tremendous and keep thousands of at three thousand four thousand dollars up to certain adjusted gross income thresholds married filing joint hundred fifty thousand starts get reduced after your incomes above that if you're single seventy five thousand dollars just gross income and it it it gets reduced beyond that and we do some examples here today but then for small business owners small business owners listen up for just a second this is something that is I would tell you to take very seriously and act on this very quickly because you are eligible up to you you can you take your we look at your monthly payroll and there some time parameters this but this is how the the stimulus bill works for small business owners you take your monthly payroll plus utilities plus your rent and there's some other expenses that can be put in this calculation as well you get a loan from the SBA because three hundred and fifty billion plus as of the two trillion fifty billion plus is for the SBA for small business owners you take your monthly average payroll plus rent and utilities and and there are couple of other parts of the equation you put in that times two point five or two hundred fifty percent of that number and you can get a loan for that amount of money so you're certain you've got collision welcome pay wrong maybe maybe that average payroll is a hundred thousand dollars a month for your business and expenses now this only counts employees that are making under a hundred thousand dollars by the way so it doesn't count for your high high paid executives but imagine if that number comes at two hundred thousand dollars that means you can get a loan for how much two hundred and fifty a quarter of a million dollars a quarter of a million dollars in the example I just shared now what do you do with that one well guess what if you keep your people employed if you keep the same head count and don't reduce salaries any more than twenty five percent and they in a from the time of the loan you get the loan two it looks like it looks to me is that they're gonna take a snapshot June thirtieth but then there's some other thought of and when you're proving you keep the same head count through.

"Helping a a relatively original technology I'm not gonna call radio all technology only caught original technology and it's it is facilitating even more listenership in the home which is pretty awesome good morning welcome to money matters this I'm your host Westmont here along with Ryan yearly our executive producer we've been here now and we're well into the eleventh year doing money matters Sunday's are about taking your calls and your questions in talking about the biggest impact headlines market have lines that are that are affecting your portfolio what's happening around the world how it's impacting your four oh one K. what it means for you and then answer your calls and questions and because financial planning is not black and white is very rarely is it don't do this are definitely do that it's usually some we're in between took on this gray continuum on most of these are the two or three things you have to consider the call we just had to so give us a call in the studio if you have that kind of question I have been thinking about this honey maybe we should call west because we were thinking about this so give us a call here in the studio four oh four eight seven two zero seven fifty again for O. four eight seven two zero seven fifty or a hundred WSB talk at eight hundred nine seven to eighty two fifty five the call we just had was about was I did live this is Linda from widens Roswell was saying Hey now with the secure act I'm worried that my heirs are getting if they inherit an IRA now they have to take all that money out quickly but on a relative basis ten years that quick but quickly reverses maybe a thirty or forty year period or even fifty year period like the old rule suggested so what does that create because it creates an issue if the error really doesn't need the money in the air is already your kids let's say are already making a a lot of money and they're already a high tax bracket now they've inherited this money from you and now the tenth year the IRS says he can take the whole thing and what does that do with it just adds to your adjusted gross income to take you from high tax bracket into an even higher tax bracket potentially and now your pay forty plus percent on that amount ordinary income taxes obviously much higher than long term capital gains at least that's the way the tax rolls are now so what do you do well one of the things to do is if you're looking at the money for as kind of the family's money so you say you've got a million dollars in an IRA and you've got another million dollars outside of an irate you've plenty money to live on so you don't really need the Iraq the I. R. A. in this isn't important you somewhat course any my Iraq and that is usually the case of course the major Iran that's why he saved and you're gonna spend but in the event that you say you know I've got some other money and this really is gonna probably just got my kids then what you're saying because of the secure act as you're saying maybe I because it's the family money it's my money but that's really my kids money then you say to yourself well maybe if I can take out some of that money during my lifetime and I only take out would say twenty thousand a year fifty thousand a year eighty thousand a year and I make sure I'm staying in a lower tax bracket Sam saying in the twenty five percent tax records lower that might be a good tax arbitrage for the family if your kids are already in the already paying the highest bracket and this will just add insult to injury make their tax rate even higher then if they're gonna pay let's say forty percent can you take money out pay twenty percent then there and I think that actually is one way to think about this it's a technically it's a tax arbitrage of you're taking it out today pain twenty in your bid then and it's a family's money anyway you don't necessarily need it to be living on the maybe that does make sense if the if the kids when they take it out of your pay forty now you're listening is a west look I'm gonna spend every penny in Iraq and that's actually I think what a lot of folks that's the way a lot of family more families than not that's what they look at is their retirement fund they say look I want to still be thirty forty fifty years to save us sixty years to save us money I'm gonna spend and I'm gonna be the one that actually I'm gonna take this money out over time because I need it and that's more normally the case but in some instances where technically it's the it's the money you're just passing on and that's when you would want to consider you basically affecting a tax arbitrage you taking money out in the twenty bracket when their kids are T. taking about forty so this is the thought as we continue to talk about the impact of this new wall called the secure act that'll keep coming up now what about let's go back to you if you if you miss that the nine o'clock hour we talked about something called greed grenades and those are stocks that make you feel like you're missing out and you feel like you've got to rush into a stock after it's already been up up up and we know we know what the answer to that the ending of that story typically yes there's a quote from Charles kindle burger is a famous economist who wrote manias panics crashes in the mid to late seventies and there's a quote that I always think about when when it comes out when you when you hear about fear of missing out or Hey I wish I owned that stock and I don't it's that there's nothing in it my neighbor owns or my friend owns it or this guy down the street owns it in your end users I don't own any of that or I don't know enough of it there isn't then this is the quote from kindle Berger says that there is nothing so disturbing to one's wellbeing and judgment as to see a friend get rich and really what he's just saying there is that if that's the the economic fear of missing out all they're doing it but I'm not are they smarter than I am well then then it leads to less rational decisions well this summer and we talk about some of the moon shot stocks like Tesla virgin galactic that are up huge huge amounts this year but now we look at just let's look at the top five we look at the top five companies this year apple alphabet Amazon Facebook Microsoft still up significantly just in twenty twenty Microsoft as a bill in the last week up thirteen Google eleven albums seven Facebook too was only have two but twenty nine percent over the past twelve months to save yourself how do you not own enough of them well that's the question mark here and I want to and we talked about how buff it is a great example of how financial media was saying Obama did known all these great stocks back in the nineteen nineties and he was missing out as tech was running hot buffet was missing out with enemy you we all know what happened tech crash in the nineties really the early two thousands Buffett's performance became tremendously better than the rest of the market but let's look at the top stocks today in N. verses that no I just talk about what the top five are today so one percent of the market place five out of five hundred equals almost twenty percent of the total market cap the top five in nineteen ninety nine were excellent Cisco G. Intel acts are makers of Cisco G. Intel Exxon Mobil and that commanded the same market cap by the way as the top five two now so the C. about about again about twenty percent of the market was dominated by those five companies back then as well back in nineteen oh nine yep again same same if you looked at any compared values a pre it's actually in the numbers eighteen percent ninety nine top five Calvary team said the SP five hundred total value Hey same thing top five today eighteen percent market well what about the valuation what about is is this nose bleed valuations today the five companies that dominate the market today one nineteen ninety nine the top five traded at almost fifty times earnings almost fifty five zero I'm sorry today the top five traded about thirty one thirty one times earnings remember within reason you want to eat but when you get the point where secretary of that far above how much they're earning that's when you start to see bubble territory and that was clearly bubble Terry back into bubble territory back in nineteen ninety nine if you look at today they are still above the general market valuation so right now market trades about nineteen times earnings the top five treated thirty one so they're still way above way above what the general markets trading but no where near the fifty times they were trading back in nineteen ninety nine so we're gonna go and look at a couple other comparisons when money matters returns a good morning listen are welcome to to money matters you're listening work will be until eleven o'clock today you can find me the money or steemit west Mostar come W.

iron out right now it's too much traffic so they're not even out makes no sense even really it's not possible right now what they are charging in what they are asking for the drivers themselves I'm a full time driver it's been doing it for over one year I have over thirty five hundred ride and this is the lowest and the amber Oisin gearing up big storm like this ruling well you see I was with you mean you mean a lowest amount of drop riders you know the lowest amount of la cage pay out from themselves are really so they're they're they're changing their formulas and stuff well they want to make our state Tuesday shareholders they need to show profit to them well I mean yeah I don't put your temperature life on the line to go out and drive in a storm like this with the on plowed roads for less money all right correct yeah exactly you can beat it used to be great but yeah H. dying down into it to dying Greek today yeah well thank you buddy and I would say that that's probably due to a lot of the taxes in the area and the three dollar surcharges which we talked about on this program but yet becomes more more difficult to make a living driving incision cargo and especially on a night like tonight all right three one two nine eight one seventy two what it would take a break you will come back and yeah what more you stories this great I'll I will talk to delivery drivers and

That's where bills are that's where things need to return. It just all seems to be right there, and I clean everything off to have thanksgiving dinner. The maintenance is what is impossible for me. Well, first of all there should be homeless for all those cat. I there are no homes. So so you need me to come. Visit you for number one. But number two is things that need to be returned should be over there by the door where you're you're going out to your car. So or in the trunk of your car? Yes. They're trying to hire. But as you're working in your house, you want to move it to your launching pad. So how many launching pads I have? Bill. You don't want to see it. But you know, what this home to you? But if it overwhelmed, and it stresses me out and addresses, my family out you want, you know, if somebody in the old days people used to ring the doorbell and you'd have oh who's here come on in. I don't wanna let people in. We don't want that we want you to enjoy your home. And when you get to the point where you're overwhelmed and stressed out. Then we need to put systems into place in really those systems are based on how you thinking operate, and we're going to walk through when I come to visit you and look at where do you go out the door and give you a container for this stuff? That's going to be returned. You can always ask your kids. Take it to the delegate it. Those papers those papers should be back in that shoebox. So we we those papers, but we're also making sunset those papers. Are there things that you referred to just once in a while? But you need to keep them then they can go in a drawer are they things you're actively involved in. So maybe we make a couple of file folders. When you do have them. There's a home for them to go. You have a phone cabinet. Here's the thing that I can't even minded going to file cabinet as my husband when we got married brought his, oh, they're filled up with things, and we had our bedroom. Remodelled? So he just brought him up to the attic. And they're filled with things I haven't looked at in years. Yes, you're very normal a normal household. These days only need one file cabinet at actually one file drawer for your current paperwork that deals with the major things in your life. So I even have a list of the major categories of Steph to keep probably tax stuff, probably passports seats for Texas. But a lot of times people keep everything they keep every month. You know investments? Bills unless your house is a tax write off you need to do that. So there's all these things people save every check it out. If you still get your checks, you don't need to do it. It's just things for Texas. So it's a lot of more detailed. But when I work with you give that information and keep get its let's take a break, and we'll come back and find the details. I feel good seven seven three has texted a picture.
