Why Theres A Cross on San Franciscos Highest Peak

"Mount davidson crossed. We sent bay curious producer susie rancho to find out just west of twin peaks above a quiet residential neighborhood is mount davidson park. It's not well known or well marked but once you start. Walking one of the parks trails. You're surrounded by eucalyptus trees and you start to forget that you're in the middle of a major city coming up trail breath mason amazing view when you get to the top. You see two things of you that stretches all the way to the east bay and one very big cross. The cross is an imposing sight. It stands at one hundred three feet tall and ten feet wide at the base made of concrete it stands in stark contrast to blue sky and the eucalyptus grove that surrounds it to learn more about how it got here. I went to mount davidson historian. I- jackie proctor. Jackie says the crosses origin story goes back almost a hundred years to nineteen twenty-three two time when the area was a forest a guy named james decatur who is a employee of the western union telegraph company and with the ymca hikes through that forest and comes to the top and he sees this incredible view of downtown and he is just overwhelmed. Inspire knee writes this long essay about the experience. Peace and quiet were so profound that it seemed almost unbelievable that the noise and roar of a great city was only a few minutes behind them the solitude of the forest conveyed a sense of fastness quite as real as one would experience among the age.

The Shocking Day I Flashed a Crowd of Churchgoers

"Our story. This week is from sarah. Paris who you'll find on medium dot com and here is the shocking day. I flashed a crowd of churchgoers. And this isn't even my most embarassing moment. How did i find myself soaking wet and naked from the waist down in front of a church crowd. Did i traumatized scores of little kids. In grandma's it's a long story and yes most likely here's my tale of woe. Thunder roared through a heavy sky. I sped down winding country lanes panicked. We wouldn't arrive on time. My friend grace and i were running late to church and she barked our countdown time from the passenger seat. Five minutes dude. We're still a few miles away. She screamed god. Still hasn't given me the stop time. Talent i'm going as fast as i can. It was the july after college graduation. My college roommates and i had decided to share one less carefree summer together. We played all summer each of us working part time and in vain clinging to the last vestiges of young adulthood. They were all three weeks away from heading out for various graduate schools. I was leaving to spend a year in. Amsterdam are worry free. Summer was spent embarking on adventures playing at the beach and sleeping in until noon. We talked about church but so far had bailed every week grace and i were the only ones going. We're both lazy on sunday morning. But we'd commit it. The church was thirteen miles away from our summer house and the last service began at eleven. Am we didn't walk out the door until ten forty five am. The sky wept as i pulled into the crowded parking lot at ten fifty nine. We laughed about our mature adult like behavior and found a parking spot. In another state. I realized distance from parking space to church was easily a thousand miles. The rain was blinding. And we didn't have an umbrella between us. Let's just blow it off this week. I suggested but i knew we couldn't. We dressed up for god after all we gathered our things made makeshift head coverings out of our jackets and sprinted from the car in one hand. I clutched both my jacket. And my giant norma's keychain my bible and purse were death gripped in the other hand. Grace only carried her jacket. At least seventeen feet of rain had fallen in the time. It took me to park. Grace i mustered our courage and ran at the same time. We were about ten feet away from the swarm. Faithful and responsible umbrella owning congregants who are reaching the churches front door. We swam to join the crowd. My soaked clothes weighing an extra hundred pounds and stuck to my buddy beamed with my love for god as i faced a possible drowning. Death for him are tears of laughter mixed with the rain and i could barely see. Suddenly i noticed that my wrap around skirt felt a bit loose and then gray shrieked with a new menacing laughter. She was pointing at me and covering her mouth. A cool breeze roared my backside before i realized what had happened. My hipster rap around pencil skirt was down around my ankles. My bright pink bikini. Briefs were on display for all of god's people and we were still thirty people back from entering the church. Foyer i exclaimed oh my grace help me. Grace replied is only close. Friends can way she said. Between bursts of giggles she turned to the family behind. Me over. ear is no one should have to see this. I had nowhere to put my belongings and struggled to pull up my skirt. please help grace. I pleaded. I need to savor this moment. I wondered if she was possessed by now. Most of the people surrounding us striptease a nervous. Dad laughed a grandmother. Told me i should feel ashamed of myself. And a mother with her two young sons. Put her hands over. There is finally graced. Took my stuff allowed me to pull up my sopping dirty skirt sitting through the service friend. She smiled. I narrowed my eyes and shot lasers at her. We walked into the back of the crowded service and those in the rows ahead of us turned and stared. I heard two women behind us. Whisper to each other. What is wrong with that girl. I prayed for a dark cave to crawl into. The god doesn't always answer prayers. In the ways we desire the judgment of stranger sent ways of heat through my otherwise shivering body. You can stay. Told grace. But i'm going. We snuck out and trudged back to the car. I can't wait to tell everyone. My compassionate friend said when my mortification wore off. I only regretted that i hadn't shouted. You're welcome on my way out of the service. A few years later grace introduced me to her fiancee's hunter sarah the skirt list wonder. I've heard all about you. He laughed and clapped. My back. neat responded to this day. I still have a hard time making eye contact with hunter again. My church strip-tease barely cracks my top five embarrassing moments so whenever you dur public humiliation i hope you'll recall my pink bikini briefs and i hope you'll realize that you're not alone.

We're not real sure We did send out a message to him letting them know that the show is about to start so he may come on after a while Or he may still be tied up doing a other crazy studying that he's got going on on some different topics. Ooh yeah so. We don't know for sure if he's going to show up so We've got an interesting topic. That rick came up with tonight which deals with angels and demons so rick quantity start us off with what you want us to talk about. Eddie how he. How are you tonight my man. I heard you had a pretty busy day in. And you got drug through the past year and over the hills dales and things my god i was dealing with horses and introducing a new horse and that was fun Got drug all over the place and it was i you know. There's no way i. I was about to overpower this guy. But yeah he took me for a little ride. And i don't mean a right while i was sitting on them. I mean a ride. All hanging onto a lead as he dragged me across the yard and trying to get it the other horse so that was fun and interesting in a realized at that point in time that he was not he was not cut he was were in good shape and hanging there. I mean it was. So i asked my god i have taken. Some aleve and i'm sitting here is extremely sore and drinking a diet coke trying to recuperate. I guess you could say because. I feel like i've been rode hard. Put up with so. Yeah yeah hey sony. Doing my day was not as as fantastic as yours. It was eventful but not. Yeah yeah i. I'm pretty well. Out of the old west this indian has hung up his Bareback waste well. My bareback ways Led me through all kinds of interesting brush and shrubbery and That ten foot lead. I had was not long enough. I can tell you that long. Yeah but i was just trying to stay out of stay out of reach of his back legs and hooves and That was pretty much. All i can do and just kind of go skiing i come up. I come up with tonight's subject tonight Because we're in the middle well not in the middle. We are at the beginning of a very interesting case. And it has to be dealing with the person that is dealing with maybe a demonte kennedy or it may be We don't know what it is right now but it is. It may be just an oppression. We don't know but what got me on. This subject was the fact that this individual was very religious. I mean she's been in. She's eighty nine years old. Eddie wow and has been in religion for all of her life basically and as she talked an as. She told me about her experiences in the church she was talking about the angels and the demons about what they were taught and what angels meant her and want the dark side as far as anything like that meant to her. And it it really. It really hit home with me. Because i can see the sincerity in her heart. I could see sincerity in her eyes. Because she's having to deal with this and as we sit there and talked and everything. I thought too while this is so pertinent of an ideal and a topic in today's world because it says i picked up some information from dr robert jeffress and he's a phd scholar dealing and the theologian the questions and theology. And everything else like that. He says it's a tragic mistake to assume because something is not visible it is not real very true and that really hit me hard when i read that and it just really hit me because we are i mean he gives he is an analogy of like you know consider electricity. Okay it's invisible but stick your finger in the socket and you'll quickly discover the reality of electricity absolutely and so it is and so it is with the angels and demons. We live in a spiritual world. Eddie i know that our show. Paranormal electrical is is all about that. But i know that we get caught up sometimes in the semantics and the analytical part of what we're doing and everything and it really through curb ball at me eddie. When we started talking about her belief and some of her friends belief in angels and demons and i heard both sides. I'm hearing both sides next to be go over again and talk with her again. And do i'm gonna do some. Edp work and things like that. But you know. I got to studying about this and i thought what an interesting topic because maybe there's a lot of people out there that have had experience with angels and demons and the difference between the two is like night and day

Walmart's use of TikTok will likely continue, even if deal with Oracle falls apart

"Well. I'm sure glad we wasted all of our time worrying about this a few months ago. Sources are saying that the trump administration plan to force the sale of tiktok to a group including oracle and walmart has been shelved indefinitely quoting the wall street journal. Discussions have continued between representatives of bytedance and us national security officials. The people said those discussions have centred on data security and ways to prevent the information tiktok collects on american users from being accessed by the chinese government. They said but no imminent decision on how to resolve the issues. Surrounding tiktok is expected as the biden administration determines its own response to the potential security risks posed by chinese tech companies collection of data quote. We plan to develop a comprehensive approach to securing. Us data that addresses the full range of threats. We face national. Security council spokeswoman. Emily this includes the risk posed by chinese apps and other software that operate in the us in the coming months we expect to review specific cases in light of ak- prehensile understanding of the risks. We face and quote so that definitely sounds like they're kind of sweeping under the rug. What i can't figure out from this whole mess is was it always kabuki theatre at least for the smart money like did everyone that mattered know that this was just gonna blow over eventually anyway and that's why you didn't see big players wanting to touch it with a ten foot pole. They basically just let the unlikely rubes of oracle and walmart. Step up to play the mark until the jig was up. It certainly seems like that was the case now. In retrospect

Collecting and Processing Metrics for Monitoring Use Cases With Chronosphere

"My co founder martin in terms of the challenges that are inherent to monitoring. I know that there are a lot of usage patterns that are unique to metrics and log data. That aren't necessarily represented in other types of data use cases. I'm wondering if you can just talk about some of the complexities that arise. Because of the ways that monitoring information is used in the patterns around that and how the advent of cloud native environments and workflows complicates things further. I think that basically when you talk about like storing data and the amount of information that you store a lot of people tend to think perhaps i-it-it's massive scale. Perhaps you're like exploring. The data collected by lighter on his self driving car. Is matt cement wall. The use cases can be lodged in individual deployments not at the scale of how much an individual computer in your laptop from mid information about it in a very high frequency nature. Your mobile phone is running hundreds of processes and sending tons of danger to the internet every second and it tends to be actually like outside of these use cases that we thinking are on the verge of light coaching lodge volumes of data for us to collect analyze while that is true suffering itself is probably the leading us case for by constructing information about how it's running and then the volume that is at is ten feet one of the highest volumes of information recording that we're seeing in the real world at least gently to learn greens Defeat level of scale and granularity. Which is kind of can be collected that and it looked at massive and started as you mentioned. How do we even hanis. That is is often difficult. There's seventy intangible things about software a you kind of have to limit your skype to know. What kind of things do i want to actually pull out of this. Infinite data that could be generated about a piece of software running on a device somewhere and yet today we extract three main kinds of data which is log like later. Sorry something that you as navigation developer rush to capture about in the bench. Your program did look later metrics which is more like a signal that could be kind of omitted from your program in a more type. Saif way i would say really gonna choose a type of metric and then you've got to choose the different specific dimensions that you want to be able to pivot on that metric. It's kind of free fall in the logs. But then by the very nature of you having to think about what that metric is to expose it can be more meaningful to you as someone when kind of like looking at metro dead dander because you already put in the thought to describe what you're measuring with metrics and then tracing is very interesting kind of compound view of both that event data. That's kinda happening through your system but then tied back to an actual individual components that performing it and then being able to visualize the events for a given kind of request or a given kind of flow of a user using your system has crosses the different component boundaries in the cloud native while we think of much of the time boundaries are bits of code executing different micra services. Oh back end services. And that's kind of where the component is thought to be captured at the granularity of an event being executed to a partner by Tracing also used obviously on a mobile device on a move all device to look at you know. I called plex pace of ios or javer sufferers. Running on your android or iphone device as well because you have many code libraries. Obviously that nicole into from your application and then obviously the operating system is doing things to tracing as kind of a way of like looking at a coal diagram across competitive boundaries and as compared to boundaries

Shrubs vs Trees With Ken Druse

"Shrubs versus trees. We did shrubs last time. Both are woody plants. They're a little bit different. But there's not this precise kind of difference it it has more to do with. It has a trunk a certain amount of the way up before it branches out into other stems at the idea. Tree versus shrub versus rupture. Yeah and it can be evergreen or can be needled evergreen or could be deciduous losing its leaves and the fall. Yeah i mean. I have two trees among my favorite trees that are shrubs. Well never mind. Sorry i just the whole thing but the native white pine eastern white pine pines strobes. There's a a a selection or whatever called Pines strobes nayna or small. It dwarf white pine. I planted them thirty years ago. Have a couple of other giant bond size. So it's the it's the tree but it's in a small form in is shrimp as a tree. We'll still the still start with a single stem. So i guess it's a tree. It's a dwarf tree. Yeah and then similarly came in the mail twenty five years ago or more probably tiny tiny little thing a grafted thing cutting and It's a cordless coosa. That's name whose name is lust garten weeping remain on long island barren less garden and so forth who who introduced it. And and so it's it's small it's Five feet tall and nine or ten feet across you know it's bound and so but it's accordance cosa. It's a tree but it's not a tree. Oh sorry i think we just accept dwarf and weeping trees as trees al qaeda and we we include giant sequoias as trees because there's quite a range but they do have the single stemming common indeed so where do you wanna start i mean i know you're three-man do mentioned so many things i was thinking of what makes a tree a favorite And i started making a list. It's health it's auditee. Its uniqueness history. It's color shape. It spark it's leap or needles. It's uses its design uses. Stopped me persona. We just love them and and you mentioned something about said grafting but most of the trees that we buy. That are unusual or grafted To a an understock That is the same species but not offered or not different but a lot of trees are grown from seed. I have some very unusual trees that finally after eight years flower buds. All over them. And i'll find out what happens with them. They are favorites. If they indeed performed correctly and sometimes you can start trees from cuttings but as a little bit difficult to start treaties from cuttings because plants. That are mature. Don't easily route and trees. That's another characteristic. Generally mature

It sounds gnarly. I mean the article Heavily references two thousand one space odyssey. Which is where i get the word monolith from because that's like what's all about and so they're like. Oh maybe it's a fans. I think they filmed that in the utah desert. And they're kind of saying like oh. Some artists did an installation like it looks artistic more than like anything else They thought like oh nassar put it. They're like bounce satellite signals author. But it's kind of like lowered into some rocks and stuff which would be interfere so it's not quite ideal for that.

"GonNa be at my house you know. I mean that's that's the. That's the benefit of being a fairly unknown artist if you will. It's like I'm trying to make this work but but the benefit is that for people who like the band we get to have like intimate experiences together and yes, it's not like you're asking you know somebody who's got a stadium show. Hey, come over come to my podcast. Dr, right there we'll do. We'll hang out and. That's that's the cool thing about being unknown right? That would be cool. I. Mean I live an hour south of Chicago. So that's where I'm at so. If you're route works that way maybe we can work something out you know that would be. That'd be cool but you know you can hit me any time if if you need something as well. So sure and in the in the long run on ongoing things I, I assume that all eventually have a job as a sound engineer again, and then we always hit places like Chicago and so sometimes you can be days off where I, mean that's that's why the acoustic things started for me in the first place was it became fun to sing and play guitar and I didn't really enjoy being with an electric on the road. So when I'm out on tour with other artists, especially if there's a day off. You know it's it's easy to meet and do those kind of shows and that's true. Yeah. I try to seeing every day no matter what. So it's it's it's great. If five people are watching instead of zero, right? Yeah. I didn't think about that. That's that's perfect on those those days off on those bigger tours where you're working as a an audio engineer. And that's how. That's how this started like my first shows I think it with a real audience for in South America, I was on Jimmy World and and those went so well then I ended up doing more and it just kind of grew from there but at first I played acoustic. Guitar. I didn't know if anyone would care or interested in and then I got enough kind of positive feedback. That did it became something that was really exciting and especially having the audience sing along you know and just having a bunch of an of course. South America kind of I was spoiled like like people who didn't even know the ban like having a couple of hundred people. Go I don't WanNa go I don't WanNa go like so many people who didn't even know the song just instantly embracing it and singing along and having a great time. It makes it worthwhile and it makes it. Exciting to do even at that level of just being being a small crowd. Yeah. That's so cool. God that must've hope to see their I. If you ever hear of me swinging through their like I..

"More, you can support the band and also get some sweet benefits and doing other stuff too like to try to pay for that van that I mentioned. Trying to sell all the old crap I've. Kept over the years. So you know like you know there's a bunch of t shirts and things that I've kept in the garage or like you know vinyl versions or CD releases from Japan only and stuff that I always thought Oh when I'm older, it'll be cool to have this and now thinking you know it'd be cool to have a tour van. Possess instead of having all of this stuff just lying around, right? Yeah. So I'm I'm planning on making like a one of the pages of the website being a kind of a museum, but also things for sale like even guitars like guitars and amps, and while shirts and vinyl whatever an even after things sell probably keep the the images up there just 'cause I think some people find it interesting to see old stuff. Yeah. Totally like a museum slash fundraiser. There you go. Poll Rolling IT GETS TEN FOOT POLE DOT COM. Okay. Yeah get some unique swag some unique a ten foot pole history. That's awesome. Yeah I think that's how the music business has gone like the music is out there kind of easy to get now for anybody in quick download and everything but the but the things that people really get interested in or the collectibles, and so that's why you see like vinyl. We've got so many different colors and things because some people want to be the only one who has all these colors and you know there's there's like a a UK distributor that has a special vinyl variant and one in Belgium that does and. So I think that sort of thing like there's there's basically fewer people buying music these days but the people who are buying like really interested in getting something unique. So I'm hoping no one by my old shirts and guitars. Yeah. All I'm I'm almost positive someone will. I don't see why they wouldn't die hard fans for sure are there's also there are physical copies of simmer down available as well..

"So for better or worse we we we made the switch and there's a lot more details involved. But over the end of the day, you know at the end of the day, we lost a good chunk of our audience just because like any band that changes a singer, you know there was a camp that's just like you know then the red album was so loved in and you know so people really newest for that record and and you know maybe half our audience was excited and then from then on, we built new audience from people who liked the new records and So I kinda. Still I still felt like there were some people that left that Maybe, didn't know that I was the songwriter too and that that you know they might have thought that with him leading kind of lost the that element of it. So I I try to emphasize that to that. You know if you liked the song old man, that is my song and all the songs that ten foot pole does for the most part almost all of our our my songs and it's it's only natural for me to sing it but still every once in a while someone says some kind of review that hurts my feelings. One on escalating quickly like this is like twenty five years later, whatever said something like this is like a karaoke singer seeing ten foot pole. and. One that was twenty five years ago and to know Karaoke singer like. my song. I wrote it. Yeah. It's natural that sing it. It's more like Edna, swab singing. The Natalie. IMBRUGLIA song. What's Torn Oh yes. Yes. That huge hit song torn. A lot of people didn't know that it was. That it was an edna swap song. Raynham. So. Regardless I I I just keep going and some people like it, and some people don't I just feel like if I just keep writing new staff and try to make it interesting that that there will be You know people who like it will gravitate toward it, and at this point, it's really more just about getting people to to listen like. Especially, like simmer down like I feel like it's I feel like it's a quality product. But how do you get people to listen to your music? There's literally millions of bands out there. So Well Luckily Luckily you Kinda have that. Of of having those those routes, you know way back when and the skate punk scene and I think that'll only not only help you out even though this is an acoustic record and I think this record is really well done. I was really impressed with the production and everything it's. It's got a nice. Not overly polished sound to it. It's still has some of the you know that rawness in it, but it's also is just all around pleasing to the ears least I found any way account as kind of satisfies if if you're wanting to listen to something punk, but you're also wanting to listen to something a little easier on the ears you know. It's kind of a nice hybrid of of both of those things. Glad you like it I. I think like my acoustic show is a lot more raw is alive and was a lot more like fast. But then I found once I started doing demos and stuff I found that when I really played it aggressively the way I do live it's fun to have that live energy. But for the Sonics Edit like an acoustic guitar generally just doesn't sound good if you bash it like if you're really. There's a lot of string noise and and you know things get out pitch and it. It's just not pleasing to the ear and so even though..

"Attitude. Toward the audience has resulted in for the most part, it's not like when we were scared straight in the eighties we played shows or even ten foot pole. We played shows with Penny wise and like a lot of the crowds, just like a really elect macho. Testosterone crowd right aggressive them. Yeah aggressive and kind of tough Guy Vibe. Even if maybe the same people come to a ten foot pole show, but they come with a way different expectation of you know how we're going to treat each other at least that's my my expectation and So I haven't seen that like like. From my experience I mean it's not like we have huge crowds anyway for most of our shows are fairly small, fairly intimate and people are you know for the most part really friendly and excited to be there and having a great time? So. Thankfully. Braid. I mean as much as I wouldn't mind having a couple more thousand people there. I'd rather have a happy crowd than a than a tough for angry crowd of course, speaking of you know bringing up scared straight though that was something I wanted to ask you're talking about was scared straight was was more of like a hardcore band and that's Obviously. That's where ten foot pole came from. You changed your name from scared straight to ten foot pole. So why why change the name and M. Y. Change the style at that time because I don't think ever really heard that story, I don't know if it's A. When we say hardcore in the eighties hardcore that we were involved with was kind of its own style that was evolving over those years and it's not what I would think of as hardcore these days at all pretty much. It's or it's a lot more melodic than than I would imagine hardcore and even hardcore in those days kind of in the nineties developed until like really like really aggressive and you know Much more screaming than than we were in eighties so I felt like the.

Could a perennial wheatgrass help farmers adapt to climate change?

"As the weather gets colder. Carmen. Fernholz of Minnesota enjoys looking out at his fields of Kerns. This week grass is a perennial, which means it over winters and comes back and spring. It's so nice to see some Greenfield's late into November and December, and early again in March, April kerns gross chest high with roots that can extend nearly ten feet below ground. So over time, it helps build soil carbon improved soil health, and reduce runoff. We look at increased rains that we're getting even in Western. MINNESOTA. We gotta wait to take care of that extra precipitation. All better. In Kerns can provide farmers with two crops forage, for livestock, and grain that can be used in cereal and other foods. So it's promising but new Fernholz is growing a small amount and giving feedback to researchers. He says, his main concern is figuring out how to keep yields up over time but he says growing Carranza for a few years between other crops will improve his soil and so by utilizing the Kerns, it's just GonNa make that fueled much better for my major revenue crops of corn and soybeans.

Sen. Chris Coons believes John McCain and John Lewis each left us an urgent message

"Chris coons welcome back to the PODCAST. Great to be on with you again. Jonathan. Let's start with the debate between president trump and vice president biden in Cleveland. You were there in preparation for a column that I wrote about the debate was looking for pictures as saw a picture in our system of you sitting in the audience in a mask and the look on your face even in the mask told a story talk about what it was like being at that debate in also given what we know. Now, what was it like being at the debate? Look it was bad enough with what we knew at the time Chris Wallace is someone I respect as a tough interviewer as a capable moderator. Struck, that from the literal opening sentence president trump was bullying him was insulting the audience was razzing in her racing. The former vice president did not in any way at any moment recognize or respect the rules that he agreed to. For this debate, I've been an elected official. Twenty years have been active in politics thirty. I've been to my share of rough and tumble debates particularly at local campaigns and I've had my share of unconventional onus but that was unbelievable. It was simply awful to sit through the rush the raw force of the negative aggressive insulting interrupting. Energy directed by President Trump at former vice president, Biden and the audience and our country in the world. One of my sons immediately following the debate texted me. They must be cheering in Russia and China the team of us that were out there to do sort of post debate spin rapid response for the Biden campaign were just silent as a group for minutes. Afterwards, it was really hard to endure. So Joe Biden Dr Jill Biden former second lady Joe Biden was about ten feet to my left and Mark Meadows and Don Jr. about ten feet to my right. And it was striking that they all walked in unmasked and sat there without masks through the entire thing even as staff person, I think a staff physician from the Cleveland. Clinic. Came around and try to get them to wear masks and it was striking to me at the time just how sweaty. Read how angry trump seemed through the whole thing. Later, when we learned that he was infected with Covid, nineteen may well have been covered positive for that debate. It added a layer of the and seriousness to the fact that he was literally yelling at Joe Biden for ninety minutes from a few feet away. I. Got Tested twice actually once rapid s one. The PTR test both negative, and then waited and waited hoping in until we got a negative test confirmation for a joe and Joe Biden there's now a covid nineteen outbreak at the White House that has infected I think at last count twenty one people including senators, senior members of the president's team as well as president trump and first lady Melania trump staff. Of the White House reporters and they are still refusing to do even the most minimal contact tracing ordered to publicly embrace a relevant public health standards. So what was already a horrifying experience being in the room for that debate? Then over the next week has sort of turned into a slow rolling horror as the president has made his own covert infection into. A piece of political theater and is now being replayed on cable shows all day a proudly taking off his mask and recording. Then re recording his triumphant reentry still infected to the white. House. I I was gobsmacked at the visual of Marine One swooping in to MED EVAC the president of the United. States to a military hospital then three days later watching this. One swoop back in and take him back to the White House for this cinematic return even though he is infected even though once he climbed all those stairs, you can see him gasping for air you have been in public life for more than twenty years you are on the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee. You travel around the world and talk to world leaders in this statesman position that. You're in how do you even explain this to the world if you can well Jonathan I, you know, I, do think it's important that Joe. Biden Joe Biden and the whole Biden campaign team step back they took down attack ads. They publicly expressed their concern, their prayers for the president first. Lady and their health as did I as did most liberal leaders in our country president trump. Does. Get absolutely world class healthcare. He was whisked by Marine One helicopter from the fortress like White House to a dedicated wing at Walter Reed Army Medical Hospital. There is a dedicated presidential sort of sweet over there and he was treated with a cocktail of the most cutting edge treatments that your average American doesn't even have access to the combination of the widely used disappear with the. Less, widely used steroid that's commonly applied for those who are in some distress and a new monoclonal antibody treatment that's not yet approved for general use and he comes back saying several days later. Oh I feel better than I've ever felt better than twenty years before there's nothing to be afraid of don't let this virus room in your life. He even said that he thinks he's immune. I mean. He is the world's leading source of. About this pandemic and has inspired imitators from the president of Brazil to things said and done by Putin who declared that he had a effective vaccine before there was any stage three clinical trials, donner results released.

How Can I Install an Irrigation System Without Damaging Tree Roots?

"Says. I'd like to put an irrigation system in for my lawn. How. Close can I put the lines to existing mature trees without damaging the roots? Well Mark. That's a tough one to answer. Let me just start with the fact that if what he's speaking of mature trees that has been in the ground where they are for three years and or more, the chances are the roots reach out at least as far as the width of the canopy of the tree. Now I have seen. Irrigation put in where the lines have gone way way way too close to the trunk and it makes almost a major kill in the root zone because they have to dig down deep enough to get the lines properly buried so to speak. That's big danger. Now, if if we look at a tree trunk and the crown of the tree reaches out fifteen eighteen feet on any given side, if they stay out ten feet away from the trunk. They're gonNA be cutting some routes without any question however. The odds are they will only be, let's just say dampening the plants growth to a certain small degree. Kill factor probably goes away when you have a tree with a canopy that widen you get closer than ten feet from the trunk. Then you start to get into the big breaks routes you get into a physical matter of holding themselves in the ground you get into the root growth and so on. So if I may On Doug's question. stay. It's hard without knowing exactly what speaking up but try to stay out as far from the trunk as you can in all cases. Now, sometimes you go, for example, between trees of of the. Size that are stated. So you put the line equidistant from the two trees. You know you're cutting roots of both but probably not so very many you run the main line between the trees then you run the spurs off. Or the feeder lines, whatever you WANNA call them you run those off and you think now of compass points, you think of a wagon wheel whichever with tree trunk being the hub, and then the spokes being the major routes if you can get out away and then run a line in a long with I'll call nearly parallel to the roots. Then you're not cutting so many that are important and you can put sprinkler heads and so on and a little closer but the best answer for Doug is to try to get somebody to come out and take a look at the place in terms of tree considerations and other plants, and then go with era. Gate.

Why The Clippers Collapsed

"It felt like something was happening. There is something about the emotion. Past. Was Now you've? Seen. This isn't a story. Be The athlete. It stays with you. There Sam first of all, where are you right now I'm in the NBA bubble a new home away from home inside my hotel room and Casillas number to think twenty seven, twenty two is the room number if anybody wants to. Send packages or love one of the two But yeah, this is this is why these days. How has your bubble experience been so far to be honest committed it's gotten better. The airport experience was felt more stressful than I thought it went I actually had to masks because the end ninety five that US was one of those that does not protect the other person. So I put a cloth masks over that and then I ended up doing facial as well and it was the right move except man that first day travel psychologically I, remember just getting. Into, the hotel room just going Oh, boy that was the longest day of travel. I've ever had because mentally you can't smile at people. You can't talk to people that got me off to a tough start and then it's a nice room but the windows don't open you can't have a window open. There's no balcony unfortunately, the floor when I got here had not been cleaned so I would pay some walk and have bare feet in at the end of the. Day My feet would be black and so that mentally can after four five, six days you're sitting there going man I feel like I'm in this kind of dirty box. The other stuff that the players have talked a lot about is that even if the accommodations are fairly nice, it's just the psychological restriction and lack of freedom and knowing that you cannot go where you want to go. You can go on a walk around the perimeter, but if you go that. Direction and if you even go ten feet past the perimeter, you'll get seven days a quarantine. You know the other stuff also as it's just the interpersonal relationships and the people that everybody left behind you know whether you have a family or a girlfriend or a boyfriend whatever it is all that stuff adds up to a pretty challenging landscape had a productive couple of days. I'm going to carve out a little mental health time and there's a big pick ballgame happening. This afternoon with me in a few writers. I'm getting there. Well. So speaking of all of these challenges as in the bubble, let's talk about this epic meltdown of the team, a lot of people expected to at all the clippers. mcnuggets Oregon on time La. Twenty point lead with two ten remaining. This is absolutely shocking. What went wrong with the La Against Denver I think the broadview for me would be that we always felt like this team was potentially far too transactional if that makes sense. Somebody the other day, use the word mercenaries where it's kind of like I collide Leonard Paul. George have a ton of talent and they looked very good for most of the regular season. But in the bubble, what you saw was a team that was still learning one another in a team that wants the pressure continued to be applied by these other very good playoff teams. They did not have the fabric, the togetherness that connectivity and leadership to get through that. In Game Seven, I sat about twenty feet away from the clippers bench and that meant that I watched a clippers bench that with around seven minutes to go and I think they were down around thirteen at the time they just completely look like they gave up. This is what your best players got to elevate their game. And the clippers have disappointed asphalt. From the field. Two points in the fourth quarter. And frustrated, the stock of the heads went down the talking stopped you had all of a sudden whereas earlier in the game there was a flood of support and clapping from guys on the bench and intensity and passion. You had the golf clap clippers owner Steve bomber feeling like limber fans right now. I am absolutely shocked. Give this Denver Nuggets team a lot of credit. have taken the fight away from the clippers. deservedly. So the leadership thing is what they need to analyse going forward because as amazing Kawhi is he's incredibly quiet. We know that and Paul George I don't think has really ever found his leadership voice maybe that's just not the type of personality he is. But if you compare them to that other team in La, you know you've got a dude and Lebron whose so fogel and raise on Rhonda who sell vocal and I think if I had to pinpoint one of the biggest factors that kind of led to their demise I think it would be that. you and our colleague Yvonne Boo reported on chemistry issues within the clippers back. In January, did you get the sense that those issues were still present inside the bubble? So I don't I wish I had a better pulse on that. You Doc was kind of the main voice that I heard. I went to to other practices where I would listen closely to what doc had to say, and one thing that struck me was he would very candidly talk about how they were still learning each other as a team in the middle of the playoffs I look at the whole picture and I realize we haven't been together we haven't had a lot of time together. So I get it. You had the old guard, the Lou, Williams Pat Beverley mantras hair let group that did some pretty special things and the playoffs last year and was gritty and would play forty eight minutes a night if you wanted them to. Now, they tried to integrate with Choline Paul who came with the very different script and a very different style and combining the old and the new had its fits and starts, and certainly in the end, it seems like a lot of those things out. Cherishing teams are. The more chemistry for this group. D, better. I think that's really the tell at a tape with the season just didn't have enough time together. Paul George has been vocal about the mental toll of being in the bubble a couple of weeks ago. Paul George talked about being in a dark place whatever. The bubble got the best of me. I was just in a dark place. A really wasn't here. I checked out and SAM. You've gotten a taste of what it's like to be an isolation down there. We've just talked about that. Do you feel like Paul George and the clippers were maybe hit harder by the challenges of playing in this Environment Paul for sure I mean I applaud him for his willingness to speak openly about it, and then only he knows where his head was at in the later part of the series but I'll never forget I mean right corner. He shoots that three and it clicks off the backboard George. Why office to side of the backboard left corner he barely draws rim on three George Corner three way off short. Gets the rebound Paul George. Now, just to for ten from downtown they were more shook I don't know how to explain it than any NBA team I've ever seen in a crucial moment. I've never seen anything like that. So I don't know how Paul's State of mind came into play but I do think the clippers had a really hard time getting through all that stuff. So Sam what comes next for the clippers, they have a lot of strong personalities and obviously some divisions between them can they hold it together and be titled Favorites Again Next Year you know to be determined. There's already a little bit of a growing sense or at least questions around the League of are they is there any chance they would think about blowing this out because you got to remember to why Paul signed deals they're up next summer they can get out and and when they came to the clippers. People felt like it was unofficially you know a lifetime contract because those guys have the personal connection to the area but I think we're quickly getting reminded that if the basketball situation is not right and if their work life is negative, then you absolutely can't rule out the possibility of them changing their minds. Year and maybe sounding somewhere else you know the NBA rules are when you have a superstar a year away from free agency YOU'RE GONNA probably have to take those phone calls from other teams if you're not getting assurances and promises from those players that they're not going anywhere. So they've got a lot of questions to have answered and it's going to be painful for them to watch this Lakers nuggets series knowing how close they came.

Some Dinosaurs Probably Nested in Arctic

"Those vicious predatory dinosaurs that tended to be fairly small as six to nine ten feet. Long snout to tail there. Certainly in the Jurassic. Park movies the things that terrorize people Anthony Fiorello a paleontologist at southern Methodist University in Dallas Texas for more than two decades. Now, Fiorello has been digging a dinosaur fossils, hundreds of miles north of the Arctic Circle in Alaska. So one of the fundamental questions about dinosaurs in Alaska. In the ancient Arctic is, did they live there all year round did they migrate? How did they get their a recent discovery sheds light on those questions this fossil that's the subject study is a baby dinosaur, the baby predatory dinosaur, and it is a baby. It's not just juvenile and given the size estimate of this thing. This probably was not far from where the nesting ground was. So this is the first physical proof. Alley some dinosaurs nested in the ancient Arctic some of the first Arctic dinosaur remains ever found were discovered back in the nineteen sixties in Svalbard, an archipelago north of mainland Norway. Since then researchers have theorized, the dinosaurs must have migrated to avoid deeply cold winters but Fiorello says this new discovery disproves that idea for you know the classic stereotype for dinosaurs is that had been. that they were living in sub tropical environments oftentimes, somewhat swampy if you look at various artwork over generations, that was quite often how these dinosaurs were reconstructed. In reality the climate north of Alaska's Brooks range seventy million years ago was similar to what we might see today in Portland, Oregon or Calgary Alberta. Certainly a place where. Things were cooler. Or who were capable of being cool at times but certainly warmer than the the Arctic today, the fossil find is a piece of jawbone with a tooth from Dromaeosaur Fiorello and colleagues unearthed it along the banks of the call. They'll river not too far from the Arctic Ocean. The bone is the first non dental evidence of that species in the far north the researchers report their discovery in the journal plus one. Of course questions remain. How did they do what they did because even with the warmer temperatures at the latitude, the thieves dinosaurs were living, which is at least seventy degrees north if not even farther nor. Do they endure long periods of light and dark, and that's where the research will go next for now Fiorello says the new discovery proves that these giant reptiles were well adapted to the highly seasonal environments of the late Cretaceous that we still experience today in the Arctic.

"So you broken network cable that was in the ground Oh yeah. Is that right? Is it a cat cat sixty think for the regular incidents Jason Hansen it'd be mad at me. Jason. Helped me in solace. Up a half ago, we took a cable he was at one of the classes and his don't be this leading that destroyed one from the house he went looked in house and he said Oh all you need is a four hundred foot burial cable. You know woman a little bit more checks on the outside or tougher thing. So we went from the House across the yard about four hundred feet into the new. Black Barn. And today the guys who are doing the driveway. Because, he came up and he said you can say I just broke a cable. He wasn't took a little black wire as thaw. which is it's not a big deal but I have two laser stuff in a few hours. So I have to splice so that I could I'm GonNa have just figure how to connect my computer directly to the laser. Laser unit. The full spectrum laser so I'll figure it all out. So I just have a spicing kit somewhere I could spice it and buried again it's just a you know it's one of those things where you think like you plan your day your mind I'll have to this that a have to find this the whole package splicing equipment, which I haven't seen since a year and a half a mile and a half six this. Thing. They're widening my drive land on the barn, the my local landscaping guys, and he's walking the dog at eight o'clock to call me over his wire carpets out anything important. Stick it out of the ground to five foot pieces. Ten, feet apart like That's my laser job in four hours. Anyway it's. It's not it could have been a lot worse. It's you know these things whenever these guys dig a funny thing was once got tremendous trench to the electric from the street. They had to put three-phase cable from the street all the way to the barn and Derek from Maldon came over one day and he's like looking in the hall and he goes you know you guys cut a phone line didn't don't Cha we did. When he point he pulled in the hall had been dug for like a month I didn't even notice city because that's what he does for a living. In look look and it was a cable like about as thick as my wrist with about twenty thousand wires in it. Ripped right. Open idol even looking at it from one angle ciders thought it was a water of black water hose which water was coming out of it gets its abandoned but if you look at it from the other direction is like. Ten thousand wires hanging out of the, but they will cut very cleanly. And he goes how long ago did you cut this? They broke it about ten days ago he does no one's come to bobby nope because then it must be abandoned. Because usually when these things break, they know right away. Oh yeah and. Because there was a it was his is the bucket. So one half of the why was ripped out of the wall and laying face into the mud so I just thought it was a hollow black water to. And the other one was sticking out from the angle. You couldn't feel the wires anyway. And then about ten feet away in the trees have grown into one of the trees is A. Porcelain. Placard from. Bell telephone. And it's grown into it's gotta be from like the fifties on in the forties because half engulfed in the tree in his bell telephone. So that must be and then when we dug up a French drain by the Barn. By the other by the machine shop, which is about four hundred feet away they found the same cable. So it runs diagonally through my property right under every single holy Dick So. It's abandoned but the little tiny Internet cable, which is about as thick as a pencils broken and I'm gonNA figure six after we get off. labile learn something new. Yeah, it's a pain in the butt though a strip does tiny little wires and well, I'm Gonna I'm GonNa. Try need twice I gotTA. Yeah I'M GONNA try to do a connector connector connecting connector. You know. A peace in the middle, and then just cover covered with like six pounds of lactate and put it back on the ground. Everyone's passionate. Everyone's punching this computers for now. It's not gonNA work. That's what people do. That's fun. Anyway other than that. What are you up to? What have I been up to whip building trailers didn't put a movie out last week as building trailers. We're building eight bullet Bourbon trailers that are going to go to Texas in the last ones I built over probably few weeks maybe four weeks four to five weeks considering the prototype. Now, this eight I started last Thursday now it's almost one week later and they're just about there about seventy five percents done. WHO's still out to do the doors for build bumpers but with a team here, the team that I got helped me out is incredible everything's moving along swiftly. And, we'll make tires. Sixteen fake tires at a plywood. In every single tired uses up just about one full sheet of plywood. And takes thirty minutes to cut because there's I didn't count this probably sixty pieces that I cut out like little arcs of circles we connect them together. To make related them together like a like A. Layer cake then six layers apply what makes up one tire. When fake tire everyone's like why don't you just buy tires because that means that I have to buy tires with Rennes connect the rims to something that's both if I keep it all would I could just nail screw everything. And if I do the cost analysis, it's probably the same amount of money to buy the plywood and take the time to put it together. But I don't have the the ability to just nail in screw I have to Baltin get involved all the Have to down the rabbit hole of using the trailer equipments connect tires as opposed to just using screws announced nothing has to turn so it doesn't matter.

"Box. Talk about the inspiration about for your recipes. So are like are they. Turkey inspired or also talk about like. What's the blight is creating something from nothing like a whole new recipe for a brand so? I also are Tennessee. Whiskey is definitely inspired by my time at while Turkey it's a very similar mash bill And then the reason I used that for my vodka was simply because I already had three whiskeys mash bills to juggle a really didn't need a fourth one in so that one and we experiment. We tasted made sure that actually worked. But that's where that thought process even start. It was just. I don't need another Nashville. So let's hope that this one working. Fortunately it did testing on the still out there or did you have. That was yeah. No that was. My trial was the system out there so it was very big trial. Could not sleep at night. It was awful panicking. Well we thought we had it and my boss was panicking because you know this is his baby. It's his legacy and so there's no need to try a different Nashville. So we went and did something completely different and put them side by side and the Tennessee whiskey Mash Bill. Wyman that man. I ended up with fifty gallons of one hundred ninety two proof vodka that I couldn't use anything in. I mean you can use it in clean something. Well you probably cleaned still was it. We actually decided to put it in barrels which Vaca has flavor so. It really didn't do a whole lot. But it gave us an opportunity to experiment with it and so one of them. We actually put coffee beans in the barrel and it turned out beautifully so we actually released a one off. It's a lot easier to those one offs when you have a meteorological we can do it. This one. This time. Nothing ever goes the waste. No it doesn't you have to be able to get your money back somehow. And so we were able to salvage. You don't want to call it a mistake because it wasn't we intentionally made that vodka but we couldn't release it as a Barca we had So it was just trying to to save it and it gave me a chance to have a little bit of fun be creative and do something unique and so you know it's like change your mentality or mindset coming from somewhere like target like don't don't mess it up till like we're going to hurt me. This is plagiarized. It definitely is more fun Knowing that there's a little bit more wiggle room. You know inconsistencies. When you're this small can actually be a good thing In so yeah anytime we did. Have you know something happened? That ended up meaning that the mash wasn't exactly like it was supposed to be. We've been able to make the most of it and and just come up with something unique in spinoff In the different product called absolutely. So I'M GONNA lift the Bourbon up next kind of go to that so kind of again. Run US through the Bourbon here You know if you WANNA share the match bill. If you can't share them Nashville I mean Lord knows there's so many people out there that are like oh. We don't share a mash bill even though it's so weird because you can tell them. Nashville and it's just like if you make it at one distillery. It's then you make the same exact match another silly it's GonNa be too. I mean it doesn't really matter at the other day so this is our healing station. Bourbon and it is a high-rise Bourbon. So it's fifty two percent corn. That's how it's high and forty four percent rye as a high. That's a high high right. And it's I love Rye whisky. So that's why I love this Mash Bells. It's kind of a happy balance. The spiciness character to we do violet at one hundred proof as well. Well well done and this one cinnamon I'm big fan of this big fan of the right here so this is actually the base of the taty too so we use this exact same liquid in the Taty Currently what's in? That bottle is actually produced in Indiana So as I said earlier on they knew we wanted the taty. I opened while that required a two year old minimum two year old Bourbon. We weren't ready. We didn't have this building ready to go inside. They took our recipe are yeast barrels and went up to Indiana in. It's when they were still doing custom mash bills as time and had them make a couple rounds of of Bourbon for us and then it was aging so well this is five and a half years old. At this point who's aging while that we decided to use some of it as just a bourbon and not just for the taty while CEOS like this this does not taste like it would be like a two or three year old. I mean this is fantastic. That's yeah that's the five and a half years at this point. Yeah absolutely I mean it. Kind of gives a lot of those flavors. It's like What's that one candy that you always talk about? How Tamale? Oh yes I can get that on like red hots a little bit too Some of that. So it's fantastic. Yeah it's got a great viscosity to for Jews. Even five years old a lot of depth and a love the spice. Oh it's like it sticks with you. It has very good In so at this point you know you're all are producing a lot more of your own. Bourbon now correct. Yes yes we produce three different MASH BILLS. That are all currently aging. Leave our Tennessee. Whiskey which is seventy percent corn thirteen Ri- until percent malted barley and the oldest of. That actually just turned three. The beginning of twenty twenty And then the next one on that is also a high rise Bourbon so it's fifty two corn forty four percent rye and then we also have a wheat whiskey which is eighty three percent wheat with want to go with a wheat. Whiskey. Because I'm I'm a fan of like Bernheim right. I actually like Bernheim wheat whiskey. But you don't see a whole lot of offerings on the market today so kind of talking about your exactly why we want tell you workout and not everyone likes a high bourbon. Sometimes that's too hot for somebody to spicy can be a really nice intro to the category and a plenty of people who say they don't like whiskey and it's largely because they just end up getting started with something that super bowl super strong and so just kinda punches him in the face whereas if you can have a wheat whiskey it can maybe help introduce them to it or approachable exactly. It's a little more delicate like any delicate up. Oh Gosh we're GONNA come back from that one now. Talk about the barrels. So like did you have say so. Unlike what charge you on. What kind of you know Dan Fortunately we kind of our agreement anyway. They they kinda when I started wanted to do a number four char. That's my favorite char. So there was no disagreement on that But one thing they did want to do is our Parent company had some Timberland in West Tennessee and had a lot of white oak on that property. And so the first. African. How many barrels saying was close thousand barrels worth actually came from Canal property? Well that's pretty cool in so the call staves. Actually we use all the stage. CaN'T USE FOR BARRELS. We actually re purposed and we've Half tasting staves where we put the glasses. Those are from canal property. Our elevator is wrapped in those bad staves. So how does that work? Do you like sweet. I mean they're taking the would they didn't obviously probably had a coup bridge is their cooper that will be like rule except your wood and they do okay. I didn't know that now I did. You know that won't do now. Yeah get mad at me for telling people they can do more business. You really think they're doing lumberjacks out there. We'll go ahead and chop down. Trees lugging back to Missouri River. GonNa you're gonNA AGEM IT so they asked. That was coal We now just make sure that our would does come from West Tennessee so we do. WanNa trying keep regional. What's the what's the idea of trying to keep it? Regional is a just pride. Is it like do you really think there's a flavor to it like what let's see? Somebody definitely is pride for just really proud to be. You know West Tennessee. That's Kentucky Kinda now. I'll and a few years pride because the Tennessee whiskey trail. We're the only distillery on the west region in so we WANNA play up the West Tennessee part of our brand. Because it's it's very legitimate and we're the only ones But also the whole terror wire par. You know we've had distilleries experiments with trees and does it really affect the the flavor in the end and had absolutely does and so by lease guaranteeing that's coming from the same region where hopefully getting a more consistent barrel I mean? Do you think you find that it's going to be consistently harder to do that as a scale comes where you're like okay. There's only so much land that we can. We can take trees from a little nervous about it. I really am especially think about the way. The State of Tennessee is. There's not a whole lot further west than us or sure it your yes so I'm a little nervous Texas if not. It's thirty minutes back to Arkansas. Like the water. You gotTa keep going there a couple of exits. I think a lot exit one. We've done it before we were actually coming to Memphis and we missed the exit one and we drove him over the bridge. And we're like on Shirley it's gotTA in Mississippi. Big Horrors Like Sixteen. Not Submissive Sixty miles. But it's like you gotta drive like sixteen miles across and then make your way back. You're like don't make that mistake again. Yes yes always get off exit one and then you know you're daydreaming when when you come to exit one makes you. Google maps is on like the loudest setting possible. Then you'd never you're never gonNA miss it. It's so another question that I always had in Mexico. We talked about it a little bit when we were doing the tour. But I said let's say for the podcast talk about the rooster. Yes so we have a thirteen foot. Tall Rooster on our array of So back to that Dominic taty bottle though we talked about on that original label there are two little chickens on it and I don't think anyone really paid any attention to the chickens until someone was who didn't even work for the company saw the bottle and pointed at the chickens and said those are dominic or roosters in everyone in the room. Just kind of had this moment of. Oh My Gosh. Dominic Dominic or chickens holy. Crap this is. This is why they're on the bottle So they decided that needed to be a brand element going forward and we had a couple of different Iterations of the rooster and how much we were going to use them. Even when I came on board we had you know. Were playing with the idea of making sure super prominent on the back about all There was some back and forth on whether or not they wanted to continue to do that. And US. Girls fought for it Because we thought the rooster was a fantastic thing to include in the brand in so we incorporate him in pretty much every aspect rebounds roaming around. Do you ever rooster around here here. Early conversations about wanting to put a chicken coop on a rooftop patio. That'd be cool when fresh eggs when I pointed out then that they would have to take care of the roosters. They're like no yes. Yes can take themselves rooster. Grew a little bit different. I've been to key west. They take care of themselves. Pretty well down there but I tell you what six. Am comes off early after night on Duval Street. Orr's neighbors like the roosters fair point. See I would think that that meeting room and somebody says like Oh these are the dominant roosters or whatever I'd be looking over like how do you know this like he was a country? Boy was a country. Boy It was a farmer and so he knew what they were And it turns out that they are. I believe they're the oldest breed of chicken in America in so it kind of made sense that you know you'd see him on things from before prohibition and like I said we kind of fell in love with him and he's named Niko now he does have Nico after Dominico. Oh and so yeah. We incorporated him on everything. If you look at the honey bo-bottle he's actually got his claw on honey bell fruit and then for our Gen. We decided to swap out the shot glass for Martini. Okay actually before we get to the last one..

I didn't come up with the initial thought but I I got to where it is today. Marcia just picked up and yes smelling it. I'm smelling it and yeah you can. You can make the second one yes is. It's pretty hard to miss it. I it's definitely an is. You're using all natural fruits and everything inside of it so we actually ended up having to go with natural extracts so in developing it we were using the real fruit but when we did the math to scale it up to full production we realized we needed about twenty tonnes. Oh it's a lot of appeal. Not even the the meat. We just needed the peel. And it just was wasteful. It wasn't practical so we kind of had to alter our pass on that one. Yeah that's a tough one for. It'll get madame dangerously delicious. It's really good vodka.

Nothing was in it But they wanted to make sure that I fit with on the team in so came down and actually timed it with The International Barbecue Festival. Not a bad time to be here not at all. It was my first time in Memphis ever and so to get to see it at such a fun time in my first night Memphis. They actually took me down to the festival and so I got to experience that. And if you've never seen it you've gotta come down for it it's insane But then I they actually also got me tickets to a grizzlies game too. And it was a playoff game so they made sure I got experienced at its best. Maybe a night on Beale street as well. There's a little bit of that and a little bit of.

Volunteers that are out there that our listeners so absolutely no no no hatred on that and okay so let's let's go ahead and shoot up a little bit here so now you are. You're into the role and kind of talk about the whole process. Because I know that we had kind of talked about the very beginning of maybe the family wanted to. Just start sourcing first. And then bottling and then it Kinda snowballed kind of talk about that and then also kind of within the family history of like what they wanted to do too. Yes Oh back in. I think it's twenty thirteen when the idea of bringing back dominic kind start it and originally. They really did think. Oh we'll just by h product and we'll just bottle which is exactly what our founder did before prohibition yeah what was the original Dominic I guess what was their business model like so our parent company Deacon Alley and company was founded in eighteen sixty six and shortly thereafter? They added a whiskey line to it so they had fruit distribution they had beer distribution and then also some whiskey and they would just source barrels. We have Letters that show that they bought from Cincinnati. Ohio and Indiana and Kentucky in would bring it down and just down. The street from the distillery is where their facility was and they would just ball it under the dominant brand name In also firmed the records. We see that they actually bottled Under under a couple of different labels and then also distribute it other brands In the state of Tennessee as well so the distributor the they did a lot. I know one thing that you had mentioned is that he kinda liked copied a model from his parents or something like that where like fruit distribution is at was a domino Nico. When I moved to Memphis actually worked for his uncle who had a fruit business and then a couple years later is when he decided to start his own business. Doing very similar things. Fruit must be hot right. It must be hot. That if you gotta be you gotta gotta satisfy the quench for fruit. Well in the late eighteen hundreds and I'm sure they weren't growing honey for or whether distributed somehow probably didn't have ways of keep it fresh for a year either right. It's one of those things it's like. It's like bananas. You get them in their bad in a week and can get. They've gotTA figure out a way to make bananas last longer by now. Just don't buy as many maybe that so I that's true so what happened to the ultimately happened to the business. Why did it today? prohibition pit in Sao like every you know most brands they had to stop production and stop selling. Fortunately Deacon Alien Company continued it's been in continuous opera sense so they were civil to continue the beer later on they were able to continue the fruits But our founder passed away before prohibition ended in so unfortunately when it was repealed. There really wasn't anyone who is super interested in bringing it back And so the business continued on and they had an Anheuser Busch distributorship here in Memphis is one of the biggest ones in the region. They had a food. Division is well both of those got sold off by two thousand ten in so in two thousand thirteen. Our President Chris Junior found a bottle of dominic taty was a product that was part of the original portfolio and it was still full instill wax sealed and a light bulb. Went off of. This is how we get back to Memphis. This is. This is what I'm GONNA do. Where was the family at at the time so the office is still located in downtown Memphis Day just at that point had business ventures outside of the city and investments outside of the city? And so he wanted to get back into his hometown and have an active business in the city. And so he decided to bring dominic back and the Dominic Taty is what started it. All decided crack that bottle open and have Juice analyzed out in California and we took that analysis and created our Memphis taty. So why why the name Taty do do you know like we're originally. Oh I know what Taty is but you know this is this is a this is a full bottle. It's not just like you know it's mixed with like you know honey and tea like RTD's before it's Day ready to tells you this because actually all the ads for Dominic. Taty said just serve over cracked ice so they didn't even necessarily is once you exactly unfortunately no records as to what was in the toddy. We have no idea why he actually called a toddy for the time and by to pay cash to we just stuck with the name. Oh I gotcha okay and this is the Taty here that is bourbon steep with cinnamon. Clove Black Pepper. Cardamom and citrus peel. Okay well I'M GONNA pick it up real quick because it you can pick it out of the lineup. Because this little hazy right yeah. There's sugar in their. You'll taste the original bottle or just offer analysis. I believe one person was brave enough to taste it. I didn't do. They survive it. Yes yes 'cause. They used fresh fruit at the time. From what we can tell what happens to fresh fruit over time. I mean I would imagine like what was black. Oh Yeah I can imagine that because the sale was like was there can be something. That point. Is Bacteria runamuck. You can see anything in it. Yeah it reminds me of fall like sit on a Hay Bale and ride around wagon from for fall festival and get good. Get your get your Straw. Bale out kind of sit on it and Yup. Yeah exactly exactly what it tastes so was the was the Taty. The first idea of this is the first product that we also want to come out with it as like an darker liquid. Yeah we knew. We wanted to launch with that product. The vodkas really were just there to help carry us through while whiskey aged sounds like the story of every other story out today. One gotTa make it happen. Making whisky is expensive. It is it is and so how long to the point where you know because I would imagine you're alternating the days still and and then you've got basically you're mashing in one day and then you got you know you're you're trying to still in another. So what was the? What was the schedule of like? Okay this is the days that we can pump out vodka. This is the days that we can do our whiskey. What did that look like? So basically you So we do actually made with our Tennessee. Whiskey mashed bill in so that kind of helped as far as just laying down product. We were able to just firm it near Mash ferment. That whiskey and then after the fact we could decide. Did it go in a barrel or did we still it further to turn it into our Baca But really it was just a juggling act. Of course this loft wherein right now was our original storage space while it's limited space so I also knew I only had so much time before I needed the next warehouse and so we were actually distilling less than our capacity. Because I need it gives us time to finish our warehouse so we were pretty much just trying to lay down as much whisky as we could but give us time anyway in so finding holes in the schedule to produce the vodkas to preach the tidy to bottle everything was actually a really easy just because we didn't have the space to be able to make whiskey every day anyway. Yeah talk about the design. It's a beautiful facility like did you. Did you know what you wanted or did you have to outside help to kind of tell you? What was the design? Who can who came up with a design. It was eighteen so we worked with a group HERE IN MEMPHIS called L. K. That helped us with of our interior design work in that extended to even like our equipment lay out as well because we knew from day. One we want this to be a place you could do tours and see everything and so they wanted it to be beautiful as well as functional and so it was designed team saying. Oh let's make it look this way and then me having to say no. That's not how piping works. Let's come up with a different solution to reality. Yes yes. Let's get this thing functional. Yeah so it was definitely a teamwork what came first that or You know like getting vendome in here to figure out like this is what the stills are going to look like. This is where the the mashed green match are going to be. They had actually already started talking independent before I even got on board To where my first day on the job we actually hit the road and went up to Louisville. And.
