00:00:13.440 –> 00:00:16.360
Podcasts are available

00:00:16.360 –> 00:00:23.460
Also to focus a quick site note. We are actually in the process of getting all the old shows

00:00:23.460 –> 00:00:25.360

00:00:25.360 –> 00:00:30.120
Using AI which is a family fender good use for AI so it’s going ahead and we are

00:00:30.120 –> 00:00:33.380
transcribing a lot of the old shows so that this way

00:00:33.380 –> 00:00:40.520
For better for obviously people finding us online and as well. We also have other people that have said you know hey

00:00:40.520 –> 00:00:44.000
I heard you say something on the show and wasn’t the show notes and stuff so this way

00:00:44.000 –> 00:00:46.520
Well, that’ll all be

00:00:46.520 –> 00:00:53.560
Transcribed at the end and like I said we are slowly working all the new episodes will be and we’re currently in the process of

00:00:53.560 –> 00:00:58.200
Getting the old ones done, but it’s a quite a time time consuming thing believe it or not so

00:00:58.200 –> 00:01:02.460
Working on it working. I like to get all the old shows done. Maybe by the end of the year

00:01:02.460 –> 00:01:07.360
We’ll see what happens only get a couple weeks for that obviously Christmas is around the corner here soon, so

00:01:07.360 –> 00:01:10.240
But like I said, we’ll see what happens

00:01:10.240 –> 00:01:12.400

00:01:12.400 –> 00:01:17.480
Couple things I want to talk about in the news we all saw that Ukraine bombing the other day

00:01:17.480 –> 00:01:21.960
Where that guy literally dropped two bombs into that Ukraine?

00:01:23.040 –> 00:01:28.480
Area where they were I was like what the heck is going on here like this. This is crazy. I mean, it’s just unbelievable

00:01:28.480 –> 00:01:32.740
What’s going on with with everything really in this?

00:01:32.740 –> 00:01:36.040
It’s just it’s just a crazy crazy world

00:01:36.040 –> 00:01:39.580
We’re living in so I couldn’t believe that so I think was seven

00:01:39.580 –> 00:01:43.080
seven or eight people injured seven or eight a

00:01:43.080 –> 00:01:46.880
Couple critical and so like I just jumps in just walks in throws two grenades

00:01:46.880 –> 00:01:52.000
It’s I mean the country’s in war and having enough people dying as it is you don’t need

00:01:52.720 –> 00:01:59.440
Crazy people doing stuff like that, but it was in the news is nuts and then the other news are goes pretty crazy was that?

00:01:59.440 –> 00:02:03.440
That baby that got whipped around by a

00:02:03.440 –> 00:02:10.300
By a tornado and they apparently found him safe and sound in our in everything stuck in a tree. He was fine

00:02:10.300 –> 00:02:16.620
So that was a kind of a miracle for Christmas thing that was an interesting one like I said, I saw that

00:02:16.620 –> 00:02:18.620
I was like what the heck is going on?

00:02:18.620 –> 00:02:21.900
so the Supreme Court announced the other day that

00:02:22.780 –> 00:02:27.240
They are gonna continue the Illinois super weapon ban

00:02:27.240 –> 00:02:31.420
apparently they have banned AR 15s in Illinois and

00:02:31.420 –> 00:02:37.040
They have announced the Supreme Court has announced that they are not going to be undoing that anytime soon

00:02:37.040 –> 00:02:42.060
So a lot of people upset in Illinois that they can’t get their AR 15s now

00:02:42.060 –> 00:02:45.340
But like it’s a couple of couple of things. I thought were interesting

00:02:45.340 –> 00:02:49.220
So the interest rates are set to drop

00:02:50.180 –> 00:02:53.020
They say possibly in July this year

00:02:53.020 –> 00:02:58.740
And they said that the federal government has to go ahead and actually drop interest rates

00:02:58.740 –> 00:03:03.220
To lower the chance of recession from 49 percent to 41 percent

00:03:03.220 –> 00:03:08.340
So they’re gonna actually go ahead and lower interest rates coming up here soon

00:03:08.340 –> 00:03:14.180
You know, I think the interest rates have been going up long enough and that was part of the problem with inflation. I

00:03:15.340 –> 00:03:21.160
Really don’t understand why I understand they say it slows the economy down when the economy’s going

00:03:21.160 –> 00:03:24.000
I this is too strong and people are but whatever

00:03:24.000 –> 00:03:29.020
but yeah, they’re apparently they’re saying now they’re gonna have to go down with it because there’s a chance of

00:03:29.020 –> 00:03:34.660
Recession if they don’t so they’re gonna be going down with it. I mean, you know, then they’re

00:03:34.660 –> 00:03:39.740
It to me it’s just all a big big big joke

00:03:39.740 –> 00:03:46.440
I mean the the problem is with with anything that the Fed does is sometimes this stuff doesn’t wash through the government that fast

00:03:46.440 –> 00:03:51.980
You know if you go ahead and you if they upper or drop interest rates, right?

00:03:51.980 –> 00:03:57.380
That takes they say a year or two to wash through the the whole economy

00:03:57.380 –> 00:04:00.580
So well, we’ll probably see these in July

00:04:00.580 –> 00:04:04.860
But we probably won’t see them for at least a year or so before they go down

00:04:04.860 –> 00:04:09.700
I mean, that’s just the way anything with the federal government does it’s always slow and and you know

00:04:09.700 –> 00:04:15.400
Moose Dale speed but they said they have to drop the interest rates if they want the economy not to go into recession

00:04:15.400 –> 00:04:20.560
My opinion they should drop them like they did with the COVID if they want the economy to pick back up again

00:04:20.560 –> 00:04:23.180
But we know that’s not gonna happen

00:04:23.180 –> 00:04:27.340
But like I said anything with the economy like this is always weird when they you know

00:04:27.340 –> 00:04:30.160
You would think we’re you know, we’re a country that you know

00:04:30.160 –> 00:04:36.920
You know you think after 200 something years we would kind of know a little bit better how our economy works

00:04:36.920 –> 00:04:42.620
But that’s still something that you know housing market. It may be up it may be down stock market

00:04:42.620 –> 00:04:45.440
We don’t know which way it’s gonna go. I could go up could go down, you know

00:04:45.440 –> 00:04:52.220
We just it doesn’t say they could refer a country that’s that’s been around and like we have for all these years

00:04:52.220 –> 00:04:57.960
You think we would know how our economy works a little better, but we still don’t but I’m glad they’re bringing the interest rates down

00:04:57.960 –> 00:04:58.820
That’ll help people out

00:04:58.820 –> 00:05:00.820
I know a couple people have friends of mine

00:05:00.820 –> 00:05:02.900
That have actually said that

00:05:02.900 –> 00:05:07.120
When the interest rates kept going up because you remember for a while if they’re gonna keep raising them raising raising them

00:05:07.120 –> 00:05:11.660
Their home equity line on their house went up like three and four times the payment almost doubled

00:05:11.660 –> 00:05:16.640
You know because of it and you know that that’s something a lot of people don’t realize when you buy a house

00:05:16.640 –> 00:05:19.180
You can’t you know, the interest rates are gonna change

00:05:19.180 –> 00:05:22.500
So, you know, that’s one of those things where?

00:05:22.500 –> 00:05:26.900
Yeah, it it’s a very tough thing. You know, I when you get an adjustable rate

00:05:27.700 –> 00:05:34.000
You got to be very careful because as those rates go up your credit card rates go up your all that stuff because of your house

00:05:34.000 –> 00:05:36.100
You know your interest rate in your house all that stuff

00:05:36.100 –> 00:05:38.960
You know goes up so it’s a very tough thing

00:05:38.960 –> 00:05:44.140
I’ve always said that I feel the interest rates the way they play with them and stuff like that

00:05:44.140 –> 00:05:49.780
I always felt that you’re kind of playing with fire there, you know, I just don’t agree with it. But

00:05:49.780 –> 00:05:54.420
Yeah, it is. I mean I get the only you know that we have a weak central government

00:05:54.420 –> 00:05:58.520
So the only way they can do things the only they can kind of help with that is is the interest rates by

00:05:58.520 –> 00:06:03.340
Again, I’m not a huge fan of it. I mean, obviously we don’t trust anything the government sells us

00:06:03.340 –> 00:06:09.540
So but like I said, they they’re saying if they go down with it, it’ll help with the economy. So

00:06:09.540 –> 00:06:14.420
Let’s see how that works. It might take a year or two for that to flush out even if it even does anything

00:06:14.420 –> 00:06:18.020
So a couple of things in the news, I thought was interesting

00:06:18.020 –> 00:06:23.660
we talked about a little bit but X obviously Alex Jones is allowed back on X and

00:06:24.300 –> 00:06:29.260
Apparently now Biden has given the FTC the FCC the labor board and all these other

00:06:29.260 –> 00:06:35.580
Companies the green light to go ahead and kind of you know, kind of look into Elon Musk and all that

00:06:35.580 –> 00:06:40.780
I know there was I know he did have some labor board issues when he first bought Twitter

00:06:40.780 –> 00:06:46.420
I know for a fact because people were actually like staying and sleeping at the Twitter headquarter X now they call it

00:06:46.420 –> 00:06:49.300
because so I guess that he’s

00:06:49.300 –> 00:06:52.060
You know, they’re they’re investigating it, but I think this is all

00:06:52.620 –> 00:06:56.220
you know, I don’t a lot of people don’t like that he’s as

00:06:56.220 –> 00:06:59.500
Powerful and outspoken as he is

00:06:59.500 –> 00:07:04.580
especially since he leans right which is very not common of a

00:07:04.580 –> 00:07:10.340
tech person most of your technology leaders lead more Democratic than the Republican but

00:07:10.340 –> 00:07:17.280
Like I said, a lot of people really don’t like him and he’s not making any friends of Washington

00:07:17.280 –> 00:07:19.720
And I really don’t think he cares if I’m being honest with you

00:07:20.100 –> 00:07:24.980
but they said that possibly Biden has given them the green light to go ahead and

00:07:24.980 –> 00:07:29.700
You know really, you know investigate into him which I think is a bunch of baloney

00:07:29.700 –> 00:07:33.620
I don’t think I just think the whole thing about them investigating him. That’s just their way of

00:07:33.620 –> 00:07:39.260
You know their way of just trying to make make somebody, you know, somebody more miserable

00:07:39.260 –> 00:07:42.140
I mean the garbage keeps their nose out of things that as it is. Why do they need to?

00:07:42.140 –> 00:07:46.240
Go after Elon, you know, it’s one of those kinds of things, you know

00:07:46.760 –> 00:07:52.460
But that was that also – this is pretty nuts

00:07:52.460 –> 00:07:57.480
There was another or there was an article in the New York Times or New York Post today. I’m sorry

00:07:57.480 –> 00:08:01.260
No, I’m sorry, New York Post Washington Post. I have the wrong paper. Whatever me

00:08:01.260 –> 00:08:03.460

00:08:03.460 –> 00:08:08.960
Russia is saying they’re running ads telling women to have to give birth to more babies and

00:08:08.960 –> 00:08:11.340
They’re actually talking about having an abortion ban

00:08:11.340 –> 00:08:15.300
Not just for X amount of years just so more people can have kids

00:08:16.020 –> 00:08:19.620
Because they’re going through so many soldiers over in Ukraine

00:08:19.620 –> 00:08:24.680
That they’re gonna have a real population problem like China and Japan do now

00:08:24.680 –> 00:08:31.320
And that’s not much Japan. I think China does not they have population they have a guy a women to men ratio issue, but

00:08:31.320 –> 00:08:34.760
So they’ve been running ads and stuff to

00:08:34.760 –> 00:08:41.160
To go ahead and tell people to have more kids because of just the population problem that they’re concerned

00:08:41.160 –> 00:08:45.340
They’ve lost over 300 and something soldiers. So like I said, they’re worried about

00:08:45.340 –> 00:08:46.240

00:08:46.240 –> 00:08:51.220
Population problem we really fixed that here in this country with the baby boom after World War two

00:08:51.220 –> 00:08:58.100
We lost how many millions of guys but the baby boom fixed that problem, but Russia isn’t isn’t having

00:08:58.100 –> 00:09:05.140
You know, he’s in having that kind of luck. So like I said, we’ll see what happens also to in the news

00:09:05.140 –> 00:09:10.020
Mark Zuckerberg has officially built himself a

00:09:10.020 –> 00:09:13.580
house in Hawaii and apparently it has a

00:09:14.620 –> 00:09:16.540
downstairs bunker

00:09:16.540 –> 00:09:21.500
That so and and they made a big wired and all that kind of stuff made a more a bigger deal out of this than

00:09:21.500 –> 00:09:25.820
It was but apparently he built himself a little bunker Hawaii is known for hurricanes and stuff like that

00:09:25.820 –> 00:09:31.060
I he built himself a little bunker underneath his house so that he could

00:09:31.060 –> 00:09:34.500
Have a little place to hide out and stuff like that, especially with the hurricanes

00:09:34.500 –> 00:09:38.460
I don’t blame if you got that kind of money. Why not? You know, you’re dealing a place that has

00:09:38.460 –> 00:09:42.140
Tons of hurricanes and stuff like that. I I personally would

00:09:43.220 –> 00:09:47.580
so I thought that was a rather interesting that

00:09:47.580 –> 00:09:54.380
That he would build himself a little bunker in the basement. Like I said, you know, we we know guys like

00:09:54.380 –> 00:09:58.660
Like Matt like John McAfee and stuff. He had bunkers and stuff

00:09:58.660 –> 00:10:04.120
He was a little bit out there when it came to this kind of stuff having bunkers and places for people to

00:10:04.120 –> 00:10:06.980
Hang out and stuff like that. So

00:10:06.980 –> 00:10:08.620
You know, he’s another one like that

00:10:08.620 –> 00:10:10.340
But you know, you know

00:10:10.340 –> 00:10:13.580
It’s just one of those things where if you got that kind of money you live in a hurricane spot

00:10:13.580 –> 00:10:16.460
I would go ahead and do something like that as well if you can afford it

00:10:16.460 –> 00:10:19.300
Why not right that guy that owned mega upload?

00:10:19.300 –> 00:10:24.780
He was another one too that had I think he had like a panic room in his house or something like that when he

00:10:24.780 –> 00:10:26.180
when he built his house

00:10:26.180 –> 00:10:30.380
He actually had a had a panic room put in now panic room is different than a bunker

00:10:30.380 –> 00:10:32.500
But he had a panic room put in

00:10:32.500 –> 00:10:36.940
so that when they the feds if the feds ever came and raided he could

00:10:37.380 –> 00:10:43.020
Go and go in the panic room and lock the door a little bit different than a bunker to protect you from the weather

00:10:43.020 –> 00:10:48.200
But you know some of these these rich guys they you know, we got that kind of money. Why not?

00:10:48.200 –> 00:10:53.700
I mean look at what John McAfee did like a city his own basically his own little city set up down there in Mexico

00:10:53.700 –> 00:10:56.300
for himself, so that was a

00:10:56.300 –> 00:10:58.860
Little again pretty interesting

00:10:58.860 –> 00:11:03.080
Some others some other things that were that were interesting as well

00:11:04.060 –> 00:11:11.780
Elizabeth Warren is actually saying she wants crypto currently crypto currency to be regulated and she’s trying to get a bill passed

00:11:11.780 –> 00:11:13.480

00:11:13.480 –> 00:11:15.720
you know that that’s an interesting situation because

00:11:15.720 –> 00:11:20.100
I know people like shark tank Kevin O’Leary and stuff

00:11:20.100 –> 00:11:23.620
They’ve actually been saying that for a while that they actually want

00:11:23.620 –> 00:11:31.100
Cryptocurrency to be regulated like like like stocks and bonds and things like that

00:11:31.100 –> 00:11:37.540
They want it. They actually do want a lot of people want it regulated especially all these investors that have all this money invested in crypto

00:11:37.540 –> 00:11:40.720
Want it regulated so it doesn’t happen like what happened with that last company

00:11:40.720 –> 00:11:43.660
just kind of take your money and run and stuff for that, but

00:11:43.660 –> 00:11:51.180
You know, it’s it’s gonna be it’s gonna be it’s tough to I mean we have regular Bitcoin regulated

00:11:51.180 –> 00:11:53.180
But now everybody has their own crypto

00:11:53.180 –> 00:11:55.420
Elon has one I know

00:11:55.420 –> 00:11:57.780
Kevin O’Leary has like four or five

00:11:58.060 –> 00:12:01.680
Ones invested and some of that, you know, it’s a very tough

00:12:01.680 –> 00:12:04.140
tough thing

00:12:04.140 –> 00:12:06.940
Do you know you want it regulated so you don’t risk losing your money?

00:12:06.940 –> 00:12:09.520
But you don’t want it regulated because it kind of ruins the whole beauty of it

00:12:09.520 –> 00:12:13.020
And by the way, this isn’t this cryptocurrency stuff isn’t something new

00:12:13.020 –> 00:12:17.860
We’ve had they tried this back in the day back in the early days of the internet

00:12:17.860 –> 00:12:19.860
I think eBay tried it some other whether you have

00:12:19.860 –> 00:12:23.700
Your own point. I mean certain sites have it now like some of the adult sites have

00:12:24.220 –> 00:12:28.780
Adult currency and stuff like that where you buy it and then that’s the only currency you can use on their site

00:12:28.780 –> 00:12:32.740
but like I said there you’re talking about an actual central currency that’s got

00:12:32.740 –> 00:12:39.460
Got backing behind like like Bitcoin. It’s a little bit different a little bit different, but she’s pushing for it to be

00:12:39.460 –> 00:12:46.740
Regulated and I think she she’s got a lot a lot of tech people are she’s very her campaigns are very well funded

00:12:46.740 –> 00:12:52.300
By the the tech company, so it doesn’t surprise me that she’s pushing

00:12:53.860 –> 00:12:56.380
For this kind of thing as they’re you know

00:12:56.380 –> 00:12:58.860
She’s bought and paid for by those guys

00:12:58.860 –> 00:13:02.140
But you remember Facebook tried to start their own crypto – that didn’t really work out for them

00:13:02.140 –> 00:13:05.240
A bunch of companies have tried and it just didn’t work out for them

00:13:05.240 –> 00:13:10.160
But like I said, she’s saying that it should be regulated which I mean if you’re an investor’s good

00:13:10.160 –> 00:13:12.420
but if you’re somebody who wants to use it, it kind of ruins the

00:13:12.420 –> 00:13:15.020
The whole point of it, you know

00:13:15.020 –> 00:13:17.260
so signs of the

00:13:17.260 –> 00:13:19.660
economy talking about currency and money

00:13:20.900 –> 00:13:28.180
Hasbro, which is a big company for games of Elnoh has bro is pretty much but they’re cutting quite a few jobs

00:13:28.180 –> 00:13:30.820
Pretty crazy that they’re cutting jobs this time of year

00:13:30.820 –> 00:13:36.140
Usually Christmas time is a big time of year for these game companies so that and they are saying they’re gonna have to cut jobs

00:13:36.140 –> 00:13:42.200
You know, they’re not solvent and and I think it’s just a you know, the change of the you know change of the time

00:13:42.200 –> 00:13:47.060
but like I said, they are cutting jobs Spotify cut jobs companies like

00:13:47.900 –> 00:13:52.160
They get dobi now or trying to push people to their cloud storage and stuff like that

00:13:52.160 –> 00:13:57.840
Google is starting to get really really aggressive with the way they’re handling YouTube ads and stuff like that

00:13:57.840 –> 00:14:03.640
A lot of these companies trying to find other revenue streams now that kovat is over and the boom is kind of over for them

00:14:03.640 –> 00:14:07.060
Trying to find additional revenue streams

00:14:07.060 –> 00:14:12.060
Spotify just cut a bunch of jobs. Like I said as well because they’re saying they just can’t afford to

00:14:12.060 –> 00:14:16.300
You know, it just is they’re not growing at the rate. They are serious XM

00:14:16.980 –> 00:14:23.260
Is looking as well changing up some things and I mean just all these companies ever since kovat are looking for

00:14:23.260 –> 00:14:26.000
different revenue streams and trying to

00:14:26.000 –> 00:14:31.260
Trying to change the way they do business, especially when you talk about something like Google

00:14:31.260 –> 00:14:39.060
Google especially is is a tough one because they’ve been really the kind of the gatekeepers of the internet for all this time, but

00:14:39.060 –> 00:14:42.180
You know yet now they with this

00:14:42.540 –> 00:14:47.660
Chat GPT and all this kind of stuff and Microsoft adding building that stuff into Windows

00:14:47.660 –> 00:14:53.900
Google is being very cautious because if people start using chat GPT or and stuff like that

00:14:53.900 –> 00:14:59.120
Takes away from takes away from their search business, which is their biggest business

00:14:59.120 –> 00:15:03.740
So they’re looking for other ways to diversify and I mean that is the way it is in business

00:15:03.740 –> 00:15:06.460
you feel you know either adapt or die kind of thing, but

00:15:07.020 –> 00:15:13.340
Google like I said is very concerned about that and they’ve been looking to to do things differently

00:15:13.340 –> 00:15:18.020
Like I said all these other companies as well laying layoffs have happened all over the place

00:15:18.020 –> 00:15:21.620
The only one I don’t think that really hasn’t laid off too much is Apple

00:15:21.620 –> 00:15:26.380
But all these other companies Microsoft. I don’t think they did they too much layoffs either but a

00:15:26.380 –> 00:15:29.740
Lot of these dot-com companies that boomed over kovat

00:15:29.740 –> 00:15:33.920
Are laying off now and it’s also a sign of the economy, too

00:15:33.920 –> 00:15:38.620
I think you know these especially in tech I think tech just got way over bloated

00:15:38.620 –> 00:15:42.820
Over over kovat and these people I’m sure will find jobs of that both

00:15:42.820 –> 00:15:49.060
Especially during kovat a lot of these dot-coms and stuff how to scale up scale up and now things are back to normal

00:15:49.060 –> 00:15:54.880
They don’t need as much as many people as they used to because not everybody’s home watching Netflix anymore watching YouTube, you know

00:15:54.880 –> 00:15:59.720
So it’s just you know, it’s still still the fallout from kovat. I think you’re gonna see

00:15:59.720 –> 00:16:02.420
more fallout from kovat

00:16:03.200 –> 00:16:05.620
Continue as you know things go on

00:16:05.620 –> 00:16:10.940
Like I said also too with kovat come a couple things interesting things that have come up over the years

00:16:10.940 –> 00:16:17.080
Since kovat you have a lot of these people that said stuff during kovat that got banned from YouTube

00:16:17.080 –> 00:16:20.980
Got their podcast taking town off of Apple and stuff of that

00:16:20.980 –> 00:16:24.940
some of those people that were saying things now it’s coming out to be true and

00:16:24.940 –> 00:16:28.620
None of those people have had their accounts reinstated yet

00:16:28.620 –> 00:16:35.600
I’ve often wondered about that is you know, if you get banned off one of these social platforms for saying something

00:16:35.600 –> 00:16:39.680
That maybe isn’t the most popular thing to say or it doesn’t believe at a time

00:16:39.680 –> 00:16:45.600
But then all of a sudden now it turns out to be true. Do you get your account reinstated? I don’t think you do

00:16:45.600 –> 00:16:53.060
So I’ve often really wondered about that you have people that have for a long time

00:16:53.060 –> 00:16:58.200
You know saying this stuff saying that stuff and then they got banned during kovat and so that say no

00:16:58.200 –> 00:17:01.020
No, no, no, you know, that’s fault fake news

00:17:01.020 –> 00:17:08.080
Misinformation and stuff of that and then but then after that stuff comes out true. Do they get their

00:17:08.080 –> 00:17:15.720
You know do they get their account reinstated do they get an apology do they get their reputations restored?

00:17:15.720 –> 00:17:19.680
You know that that’s one thing I’ve always really wondered about

00:17:19.680 –> 00:17:23.440
You know with with especially with all this stuff. I mean we know I mean

00:17:24.140 –> 00:17:31.140
You know election tampering and and and news propaganda, like I said before last last episode has been going on since the dawn of time

00:17:31.140 –> 00:17:33.140
that’s nothing new but

00:17:33.140 –> 00:17:37.740
you know if you’re going to does your use your career does your

00:17:37.740 –> 00:17:42.360
Social media ever recover, you know say, you know, you know

00:17:42.360 –> 00:17:45.580
So you get kicked off of Facebook or something like that and you had a million followers

00:17:45.580 –> 00:17:51.120
How are you gonna get that million followers back someplace else? It’s it’s a it’s a tough thing the whole deep platforming thing

00:17:51.120 –> 00:17:53.700
Is definitely?

00:17:54.020 –> 00:17:57.160
Something that’s very touchy subject with a lot of people

00:17:57.160 –> 00:18:00.020

00:18:00.020 –> 00:18:05.100
Well, I mean specifically me. I’m one of those people that I don’t understand when it became

00:18:05.100 –> 00:18:07.740
You know wrong to have

00:18:07.740 –> 00:18:10.580
Different opinions. It’s one thing you were saying something

00:18:10.580 –> 00:18:16.100
to cause harm or something that that possibly could do damage to somebody but

00:18:16.100 –> 00:18:21.140
Like a coven was a tough time because I stuff could technically be health information

00:18:21.140 –> 00:18:26.560
That’s very touch so but just having an opposing viewpoint anymore is can get you cancelled

00:18:26.560 –> 00:18:32.660
Which I don’t think is 100 it really isn’t the correct thing to do you have freedom of speech in this country

00:18:32.660 –> 00:18:38.860
And I don’t understand. I just have a conversation about this today saying like I don’t understand how you know

00:18:38.860 –> 00:18:43.180
It’s one thing to say. Okay this news. It could be dangerous if it’s not true because of

00:18:43.180 –> 00:18:47.300
You know, it’s a health issue. Oh, that’s one thing but now I mean nowadays

00:18:47.300 –> 00:18:52.980
I mean, they’re kicking people are getting canceled just for having differences of opinion and I just don’t

00:18:52.980 –> 00:18:58.980
You know, I just don’t agree with that. That’s a whole different issue in itself, but like I said still

00:18:58.980 –> 00:19:02.260
You know still fall out from from coven and stuff like that

00:19:02.260 –> 00:19:05.460
One thing I have told a lot of people somebody asked me

00:19:05.460 –> 00:19:08.740
We’re talking about prepping the other day and some of that I had said I’ve got

00:19:08.740 –> 00:19:12.920
And you talked to me they said well, you know, how many of you go to the doctor?

00:19:12.920 –> 00:19:17.140
I try to tell everybody I try to go to the doc not not to the same doctor

00:19:17.140 –> 00:19:20.440
But I try to go to take care of one health issue a month almost

00:19:20.440 –> 00:19:25.860
And not that I have a lot of health issues, but like I’m saying like one month. I do my dentist

00:19:25.860 –> 00:19:32.580
When a one month I I may do this, you know, I may do my my my whatever my chiropractor one month

00:19:32.580 –> 00:19:39.700
I may do what you know, I try to do one thing for my health a month as far as appointments go and

00:19:40.740 –> 00:19:43.860
You know, I obviously had you get older you have more that will happen

00:19:43.860 –> 00:19:48.920
But I try to stay on top of things the worst thing you can do is put off things sometimes

00:19:48.920 –> 00:19:52.960
health-wise, especially when it comes like something like your teeth or something like that because uh

00:19:52.960 –> 00:19:56.320
Especially like it’s you know teeth or any kind of health issue

00:19:56.320 –> 00:20:00.840
You know keep putting it off keep putting it off keep putting it off and it can possibly get worse

00:20:00.840 –> 00:20:02.840
I’m not a big one for going to the doctor for everything

00:20:02.840 –> 00:20:04.720

00:20:04.720 –> 00:20:07.920
you know if you if you stay on top of things sometimes you could uh

00:20:08.700 –> 00:20:14.540
Before you know avoid a bigger issue, especially with your teeth and stuff like that. Those are you know

00:20:14.540 –> 00:20:17.320
Those are easy appointments to keep

00:20:17.320 –> 00:20:22.220
You know, obviously you’re you go seeing go seeing your general care practitioner once a year for a checkup

00:20:22.220 –> 00:20:27.860
Getting your blood work done, you know quarterly half, you know, you know mid-year whatever like that

00:20:27.860 –> 00:20:31.560
or any of that things try to purvoy, you know, try to avoid a

00:20:31.560 –> 00:20:36.320
Problem that could be down the road. I had a friend of mine that recently just

00:20:37.400 –> 00:20:40.760
You know, he just had some blood work done didn’t get back such good results

00:20:40.760 –> 00:20:44.680
and I know sometimes it’s tough to say, oh, you know big pharma and stuff like that, but

00:20:44.680 –> 00:20:49.740
At the end of the day if you have high cholesterol if you have a lot of blood

00:20:49.740 –> 00:20:54.000
Yeah, a lot of fat in your blood. It’s either you diet. Stop eating what you’re eating or take medicine and

00:20:54.000 –> 00:20:57.700
Sometimes you don’t want to take medicine, but it isn’t always cheap

00:20:57.700 –> 00:21:01.980
It doesn’t always easier to it isn’t always cheaper to eat healthy in this country

00:21:01.980 –> 00:21:07.420
That’s another big problem. We have in America right now is it’s not always cheaper to eat healthy

00:21:07.420 –> 00:21:12.740
I mean eating healthy costs you sometimes double what eating garbage would and that’s you know

00:21:12.740 –> 00:21:15.620
A big problem in this country processed foods and stuff like that

00:21:15.620 –> 00:21:22.740
But you know you like I said if you I’ve recommended everybody get their their blood work done, you know get your colonoscopy

00:21:22.740 –> 00:21:25.260
Get your endoscopies get your mammograms

00:21:25.260 –> 00:21:30.260
Get anything you need to get done because if you can get catch that stuff early

00:21:31.180 –> 00:21:34.100
You know, it’s very very treatable and even curable in many cases

00:21:34.100 –> 00:21:39.880
I tell everybody that you know, don’t put off these routine tests, you know

00:21:39.880 –> 00:21:45.320
It’s I know we all say, you know, I know you know when the end of the world comes

00:21:45.320 –> 00:21:48.540
We’re not gonna be able to get these but right now we’re not in the end of the world yet. So

00:21:48.540 –> 00:21:53.340
You know go out and get those things that a good friend of mine recently just died of pancreatic cancer

00:21:53.340 –> 00:21:56.860
Another friend of mine just recently found a in thyroid cancer

00:21:56.860 –> 00:22:02.520
so, you know, these are the things you don’t play around with the earlier you can get them detected the more they can do for you and

00:22:02.520 –> 00:22:06.080
Like I said, I tell everybody that you know

00:22:06.080 –> 00:22:10.660
I I want to be able to be able to be here to walk my kid my girls on the island stuff of that

00:22:10.660 –> 00:22:14.380
So like I said, make sure you take your time, you know

00:22:14.380 –> 00:22:17.100
colonoscopy get your endoscopies

00:22:17.100 –> 00:22:17.940
like I said

00:22:17.940 –> 00:22:23.380
You know get your get all your routine blood work get your mammograms get all that kind of stuff that

00:22:23.780 –> 00:22:28.260
That you would get if you needed to because you know those kind of things if they’re found early

00:22:28.260 –> 00:22:30.740
They’re very treatable and could save your life. So

00:22:30.740 –> 00:22:36.140
That’s kind of my thing on the health. I tell everybody I do one thing a month from my health

00:22:36.140 –> 00:22:40.860
I have my colonoscopy a couple months ago. I have my endoscopy a couple months ago because I do have a history of

00:22:40.860 –> 00:22:45.660
Cancer in my family. So keeping an eye on that stuff. I get my blood work done

00:22:45.660 –> 00:22:50.300
I should get it quarterly, but I get it done every you know every six months, but trying to stay on top of things

00:22:50.300 –> 00:22:52.340
So you stay healthy and believe me?

00:22:53.200 –> 00:22:56.640
You know sometimes being prepared is just is preparing yourself

00:22:56.640 –> 00:23:01.260
Not just for when the end of the world comes but for trying to stay healthy – fortunately

00:23:01.260 –> 00:23:06.300
I said we live in a country where it’s not always, you know better cheaper to eat healthier

00:23:06.300 –> 00:23:11.640
So and unfortunately some health problems and stuff, but if you do a family history, you’re predisposed to things

00:23:11.640 –> 00:23:17.540
So go ahead and and get that stuff done. So you’re here around for everybody because you know

00:23:17.540 –> 00:23:21.680
We use the all-time. Well, sometimes me it’s just me now it affects everybody else around you. It’s not you

00:23:21.680 –> 00:23:24.040
You’re not you know, so it’s one of those things

00:23:24.040 –> 00:23:27.520
Other thing I wanted to point out to

00:23:27.520 –> 00:23:31.120
Kind of an interesting thing I guess there

00:23:31.120 –> 00:23:34.560
There is Congress has approved

00:23:34.560 –> 00:23:42.620
legislation that would stop the president from withdrawing the United States from NATO without approval from the Senate and the Congress

00:23:42.620 –> 00:23:44.840
That was actually in the news

00:23:44.840 –> 00:23:48.220
I’m not sure why they passed that or if there was something

00:23:48.500 –> 00:23:54.840
happening that everybody was worried about and that’s why they did that but apparently they have gone ahead and

00:23:54.840 –> 00:23:57.480
passed that law so that

00:23:57.480 –> 00:24:01.340
America can’t pull out of NATO. So I thought

00:24:01.340 –> 00:24:08.680
That was interesting also – there’s another bill that somebody had proposed at Congress

00:24:08.680 –> 00:24:10.920
That would not allow

00:24:10.920 –> 00:24:14.040
sitting senators or sitting

00:24:14.540 –> 00:24:20.080
congressmen or anybody really in those kinds of positions to it’s this big all the Cleanup Act

00:24:20.080 –> 00:24:27.100
Where basically what they do is is you can’t if you’re in office, you can’t have you can’t buy or trade stocks

00:24:27.100 –> 00:24:29.920
you’re not allowed to

00:24:29.920 –> 00:24:34.640
Do certain things that are considered

00:24:34.640 –> 00:24:39.280
Unconstitutional or what could be considered dirty politics

00:24:39.280 –> 00:24:42.580
Anything like that like you said you can’t buy and sell stocks

00:24:43.400 –> 00:24:46.660
The Supreme Court justices would be 18 year sentences

00:24:46.660 –> 00:24:51.640
Then they would have other things that would be I think senators be 12 years

00:24:51.640 –> 00:24:55.240
They’re trying to basically put term limits on

00:24:55.240 –> 00:24:59.480
On these people that have been there forever and I do agree with that personally

00:24:59.480 –> 00:25:05.380
Like Mitch McConnell, I don’t understand why he’s still I mean the guy you can see he’s losing it

00:25:05.380 –> 00:25:09.460
I mean he just stops. I mean he could tell he just he drifts. Well, I mean, he’s basically like Biden

00:25:09.820 –> 00:25:14.180
Why is he still in there? I mean the same thing with Biden. Why is he the president his age?

00:25:14.180 –> 00:25:19.160
I mean, come on, it’s really ridiculous term limits. I mean, come on. It’s it’s ridiculous

00:25:19.160 –> 00:25:25.260
Especially Supreme Court justices. Why aren’t there term limits? They just stay on the bench down till they die

00:25:25.260 –> 00:25:27.560
I mean there should be a term limit on

00:25:27.560 –> 00:25:31.200
that and I mean, I really think there should be I

00:25:31.200 –> 00:25:35.000
Really think we should have like a split between I mean

00:25:35.000 –> 00:25:38.560
I don’t think I really don’t think the way that system is set up the whole Supreme Court does

00:25:38.560 –> 00:25:41.520
Something is fair considering. Okay, in other words

00:25:41.520 –> 00:25:47.400
I’m you know, if somebody dies or retired from the bench while there’s a Republican

00:25:47.400 –> 00:25:51.380
President, you know, you’re gonna get a Republican on there if somebody you know

00:25:51.380 –> 00:25:54.320
You know during the Democratic

00:25:54.320 –> 00:26:01.960
It’s just so stupid the way they do it you only it basically you have to hope that the person dies during whatever

00:26:01.960 –> 00:26:05.400
You know during when whatever

00:26:06.720 –> 00:26:13.240
President is reigning at the time. It’s really stupid the way they do the Supreme Court justice thing because you know darn well if

00:26:13.240 –> 00:26:18.000
If something if we get another if we get another Democrat or another, you know

00:26:18.000 –> 00:26:22.080
Or another Republican and if something has one of the Supreme Court justices, they’re gonna be like, oh, yep

00:26:22.080 –> 00:26:25.740
You don’t need that, you know, and then they should just balance out the Supreme Court

00:26:25.740 –> 00:26:30.980
You know, I would say like, you know, six three and three and he would say well things will never pass if that’s the case

00:26:30.980 –> 00:26:36.020
Well, that’s why they’re you know, they’re supposed to talk and negotiate things. So

00:26:36.820 –> 00:26:41.380
It’s one of those things and that’s to a position that I know they have to leave they usually side with their party

00:26:41.380 –> 00:26:45.160
But that’s a position where you really don’t get elected for it you get you know

00:26:45.160 –> 00:26:49.180
Appointed to it. So it’s not like, you know, once you’re up there

00:26:49.180 –> 00:26:52.540
It’s not you can hurt your career by doing something you’re there until you’re dead

00:26:52.540 –> 00:26:57.700
So that’s why if they had term limits on that 18 or 20 years, I think would be good for the Supreme Court justice

00:26:57.700 –> 00:27:04.280
10 years or 12 years for I mean for senators and congressman. I think that would be good

00:27:04.280 –> 00:27:08.680
I think I’ve always said there should be term limits on senators and congressman

00:27:08.680 –> 00:27:10.680
I don’t think you should be out there being Congress forever

00:27:10.680 –> 00:27:13.340
Just like they should be allowed to be in Senate forever

00:27:13.340 –> 00:27:18.500
so like I said, there was that I doubt the bill the bill by falling deaf ears, but

00:27:18.500 –> 00:27:22.820
It would be nice of a pass, but I don’t think it’s going to also to apparently

00:27:22.820 –> 00:27:29.680
Alex Jones has been ordered in Texas to pay the 55 million for the

00:27:31.400 –> 00:27:35.260
The actual sandy hook thing I think five million a year

00:27:35.260 –> 00:27:42.700
For 10 years for 10 years. Yeah five many year for 10 years in order to pay back all that stuff

00:27:42.700 –> 00:27:49.300
I I don’t I know he filed for bankruptcy protection, but I just I don’t know that’s gonna keep going on

00:27:49.300 –> 00:27:53.460
I think for a little bit longer, but I mean knowing he’s got kids and stuff like that

00:27:53.460 –> 00:27:57.620
I would have I really was surprised he kept on that and didn’t

00:27:57.620 –> 00:28:01.040
Didn’t stop with it. And I think that’s why they went after me

00:28:01.200 –> 00:28:06.040
I get it conspiracy theory. He’s always been known for that. But I just think to a certain degree

00:28:06.040 –> 00:28:08.040
He should have just stopped talking about it. It’s

00:28:08.040 –> 00:28:13.640
Anything like that is a horrible situation and I get it. He’s a conspiracy theorist

00:28:13.640 –> 00:28:20.140
He’s a shock jock whatever you want to call him, but that was just you know, he should have just left

00:28:20.140 –> 00:28:25.080
That’s one time. He should have just left while I’m alone and I’m a fan of Alex’s stuff, but I just

00:28:25.080 –> 00:28:27.680
He got to the point with him where it’s like yeah

00:28:27.840 –> 00:28:32.480
It he took it too far and he’s definitely gonna pay the price now in a big way. So

00:28:32.480 –> 00:28:35.840
So also to want to bring up in the news

00:28:35.840 –> 00:28:42.820
There actually are they actually have said that we’ve actually been shoot we shot down like 14 or 15

00:28:42.820 –> 00:28:47.960
Suspected attack drones over the Red Sea between the Royal Navy and us we’ve been shooting them down

00:28:47.960 –> 00:28:51.720
A lot of people are wondering what’s going on. Apparently they’re saying

00:28:52.480 –> 00:28:59.680
You know rebels in Yemen have launched a series of you know, tack drones at our vessels our sea vessels

00:28:59.680 –> 00:29:02.720
So they’ve been shooting them down, but we’re waiting to see what’s gonna happen

00:29:02.720 –> 00:29:09.800
With that going forward a lot of you’re saying oh, but he should but Biden should bomb Yemen, but that’s not gonna happen

00:29:09.800 –> 00:29:11.680
I choose you doubt that

00:29:11.680 –> 00:29:16.720
So a couple things I got a couple emails. I got messages tweets that I got

00:29:16.720 –> 00:29:21.420
After last week’s show I like to open the mailbag as they say

00:29:22.240 –> 00:29:30.060
Kind of interesting. So somebody had asked what they can do over to the winter to get ready for the summer planting season

00:29:30.060 –> 00:29:35.960
Those are good thing. I tell everybody the one thing you can do over the winter is composting

00:29:35.960 –> 00:29:38.560
especially it’s a good thing to do with the snow and

00:29:38.560 –> 00:29:46.160
Ring and and all that kind of stuff we get you can actually start composting over the winter and then for summer

00:29:47.000 –> 00:29:54.760
You’ll actually have your you know your fertilizer and and things like that ready for summer because they can guarantee that comp that pile is gonna really

00:29:54.760 –> 00:29:57.000

00:29:57.000 –> 00:30:01.700
Composted and all that kind of stuff. Like I said, it’s very easy to do composting. I

00:30:01.700 –> 00:30:08.280
Actually have started doing it myself in a trash can just to make it a little bit easier. So I throw all the

00:30:08.280 –> 00:30:11.040
all the organic stuff

00:30:11.040 –> 00:30:13.040
banana peels

00:30:13.040 –> 00:30:14.100

00:30:14.100 –> 00:30:17.640
You know leaves any of the stuff we have fruit

00:30:17.640 –> 00:30:21.380
You know the pear, you know the cores of the fruit

00:30:21.380 –> 00:30:25.860
Anything like that I throw and we actually have a garbage can I drilled some holes in it

00:30:25.860 –> 00:30:30.680
And I leave it out and leave it open and then I go there put the top on it and then shake it up and all

00:30:30.680 –> 00:30:32.440
that kind of stuff and

00:30:32.440 –> 00:30:37.280
You know, we do it that way and then come summertime. We we actually do have some compost

00:30:37.280 –> 00:30:39.660
I spend some of the some of the winter doing that

00:30:40.560 –> 00:30:45.720
Like I said, we have some good compost for the for the summer, but like I said, you can do that

00:30:45.720 –> 00:30:47.200
Like I said, I’ve got a couple of metal cans

00:30:47.200 –> 00:30:50.940
You need to have plastic cans just drill a couple of holes in the bottom. So they drain

00:30:50.940 –> 00:30:52.600
Like I said leave them outside

00:30:52.600 –> 00:30:56.940
I leave the lid off mine a little bit like cracked a little bit some of the water gets in there some of that and then

00:30:56.940 –> 00:31:00.560
You put it on shake it up roll it around a little bit. So you have to mix it up every so often

00:31:00.560 –> 00:31:05.100
And then that’s pretty much mostly what I do. Like I said, but you don’t want to throw any garbage in there

00:31:05.100 –> 00:31:07.620
I mean I put simple if you don’t throw garbage in there

00:31:08.460 –> 00:31:14.260
You know you want to throw stuff in like like I said like like banana peels apple cores

00:31:14.260 –> 00:31:21.640
You know, even like you just if people say all the time you can throw scraps in from food that you’ve had no compost

00:31:21.640 –> 00:31:22.360
I do agree with that

00:31:22.360 –> 00:31:27.320
But the problem with that is if you start doing that you tend to get animals and stuff like that in so I don’t really

00:31:27.320 –> 00:31:31.000
Recommend that but I mean you could I mean it wouldn’t it doesn’t hurt

00:31:31.000 –> 00:31:34.540
Like I say just got to keep putting, you know, putting the water in it

00:31:34.540 –> 00:31:39.440
And like I said, it will compost it will you know degrade and compost over time

00:31:39.440 –> 00:31:42.400
Compact, you know, it’s a great way to

00:31:42.400 –> 00:31:47.560
You know and help with greenhouse gases those of you guys that are into the environmental stuff a little more than I am

00:31:47.560 –> 00:31:51.760
You know, it’s really great cuts back on trash cuts back on weight landfills

00:31:51.760 –> 00:31:57.100
I mean it it is a fabulous thing to do. I really do recommend it, but I know it’s

00:31:57.100 –> 00:32:01.160
Something else to do, you know, I know a lot of people like myself are busy a lot on our plate

00:32:01.360 –> 00:32:06.140
It’s a lot to do my wife handles a lot of that now. She’s home most of the time. But like I said

00:32:06.140 –> 00:32:12.220
We you like I said we do I mean, I know people even go as far as to I know quite a few people

00:32:12.220 –> 00:32:17.740
That actually, you know will go out and pick up at their animals throw that in the compost pile and you can it’s degradable

00:32:17.740 –> 00:32:21.100
stuff like that to fertilize the land some of that but I don’t

00:32:21.100 –> 00:32:24.420
We don’t do that much of that. Like I said for us it’s mostly

00:32:24.420 –> 00:32:29.700
Fruit we do take whatever leftovers we have like the eggshells and stuff like that

00:32:29.900 –> 00:32:34.680
We throw that anything that’s degradable in the house. That’s not gonna attract bugs or animals

00:32:34.680 –> 00:32:38.180
We throw in there and like I said, we throw some leaves in there we throw

00:32:38.180 –> 00:32:43.520
Little pea, you know little pieces of sticks and stuff like that in there and then we just let it you know

00:32:43.520 –> 00:32:47.360
All winter long and then you know when it snows it packs it down and stuff like that

00:32:47.360 –> 00:32:51.160
And like I said, we we close the lid up and I shake it up a little bit and stuff like that

00:32:51.160 –> 00:32:54.520
Do you know to help it break down a little faster and stuff like that?

00:32:54.520 –> 00:32:56.920
But like I said, we do it like I said

00:32:56.920 –> 00:33:01.380
If you want to be ready for summer now’s the time we get to start your compost pile because this is the time of year

00:33:01.380 –> 00:33:06.080
You want to do it because you can sit it outside. It’s gonna get nailed with snow. It’s gonna get rained on

00:33:06.080 –> 00:33:12.300
It’s gonna it’ll it’ll come build decompose pretty quick over the winter. So that’s what I’d recommend with that

00:33:12.300 –> 00:33:15.440
like I said, it is a great way to

00:33:15.440 –> 00:33:18.240
You know to do I really recommend it

00:33:18.240 –> 00:33:23.000
The only thing you could do this time of year which I know a lot of people in my area do up here in the mountains

00:33:23.000 –> 00:33:24.100
of Poconos

00:33:24.100 –> 00:33:29.320
Is you can actually go ahead and cut trees down this time of year if you cut trees down this time of year. They’re almost

00:33:29.320 –> 00:33:36.220
Perfect for burning you buy I bet you I bet you my next year you could actually go ahead and could actually use some of that

00:33:36.220 –> 00:33:37.480

00:33:37.480 –> 00:33:40.280
For your you know for your wood stove or whatever

00:33:40.280 –> 00:33:43.080
Next year, so I recommend doing that as well

00:33:43.080 –> 00:33:45.920
Like I said anything like that is good over the one

00:33:45.920 –> 00:33:51.280
Like I said, you know over the winters when you start you actually can until it starts with the ground gets really hard

00:33:51.680 –> 00:33:56.080
You can still start setting up your start getting ready for next year what I know

00:33:56.080 –> 00:33:59.380
There’s a lady and she’s not a perper anything like us but next door

00:33:59.380 –> 00:34:06.900
She actually has a fenced area set up and she will all winter long throw her stuff, you know

00:34:06.900 –> 00:34:08.920
whatever she gets from

00:34:08.920 –> 00:34:14.660
You know from her house in there and she’ll just keep mixing it up with a pitchfork and letting it rain on it letting it

00:34:14.660 –> 00:34:18.400
You know snow she’ll hit it with hose if we go a little bit without rain or stuff like that

00:34:18.400 –> 00:34:24.280
But she’s uh, she does that she she puts all that stuff in her flowerbed and then this way when springtime comes

00:34:24.280 –> 00:34:28.520
She doesn’t even have to move anything. She don’t do anything. It’s just already all in there. She just mixes it up

00:34:28.520 –> 00:34:33.800
Every so often but all winter long she throws all her banana peels or her

00:34:33.800 –> 00:34:38.840
cores her her table scraps all that kind of stuff throws all that in there and

00:34:38.840 –> 00:34:45.360
Just lets it lets it compose all winter long and then summertime. She as soon as spring hits she plants her tomatoes and

00:34:46.280 –> 00:34:52.000
You know, she has some of the brightest reddest tomatoes I’ve ever seen so and like I said, she’s not a prepper

00:34:52.000 –> 00:34:54.360
That’s something actually I learned from her. She taught me that

00:34:54.360 –> 00:34:58.760
She I saw her doing it. I said, I said, what do we know? What do you I see you constantly?

00:34:58.760 –> 00:35:02.640
What is you compost you she’s like no. No, I only compost in the winter

00:35:02.640 –> 00:35:06.640
She goes to say, you know and then in the summer, you know, she goes I used you know

00:35:06.640 –> 00:35:11.200
I’ll throw a little you know, mix this up. She might throw a top so a little for you know on top of it

00:35:11.200 –> 00:35:14.320
and and that’s it man, she puts her tomatoes in the ground and

00:35:15.520 –> 00:35:17.200
You know, that’s that’s what she does

00:35:17.200 –> 00:35:21.180
So this is a great time of year to start that because like I said by summertime

00:35:21.180 –> 00:35:25.920
You’ll be ready if you wait too much longer though. It may not like you wait to that

00:35:25.920 –> 00:35:29.920
I know some people start in January. I’m like no February February. I’m like a little late for that

00:35:29.920 –> 00:35:31.560
I might not break down in time

00:35:31.560 –> 00:35:34.320
but this is definitely the time of year to start that and

00:35:34.320 –> 00:35:39.760
The more you have to and the more you more big of a pyre you have the less soil you’re gonna need and all that

00:35:39.760 –> 00:35:45.600
So this is it’s actually a really good thing to do because it is a big saver a topsoil and any kind of

00:35:45.600 –> 00:35:48.680
Planting soil especially in the in the summer

00:35:48.680 –> 00:35:52.600
It’s not gonna be it’s anytime you buy it in season

00:35:52.600 –> 00:36:00.060
Also to folks if one thing I have found too is if those of you that maybe can’t compost or don’t want to or whatever

00:36:00.060 –> 00:36:04.640
If you actually go Home Depot and stuff like that and Lowe’s we were just in there the other day

00:36:04.640 –> 00:36:06.640
I pick up a change for my chainsaw

00:36:07.280 –> 00:36:10.360
And I noticed they have topsoil and stuff like that

00:36:10.360 –> 00:36:14.140
Really cheap because it’s out of season. Nobody really plants this time of year

00:36:14.140 –> 00:36:19.600
So if you actually go in there and if you have a place to store like shed we can keep it dry all winter long

00:36:19.600 –> 00:36:24.860
Now would be the time to buy it not in the springtime because in the springtime, you know

00:36:24.860 –> 00:36:29.040
That that’s peak planting season all that stuff’s gonna be tough, you know, it’s very expensive

00:36:29.040 –> 00:36:32.260
Now is the time of year you’re going home deeper your seeds for cheap

00:36:32.760 –> 00:36:37.720
You get your potting soil and all that stuff for cheap. So this way you can go ahead and

00:36:37.720 –> 00:36:40.840
You know be ready, but you have to have space to store it

00:36:40.840 –> 00:36:44.780
you have to have basically keep it dry, which is you know a challenge this time of year obviously, but

00:36:44.780 –> 00:36:47.120
You could do that

00:36:47.120 –> 00:36:51.320
Also – I don’t the other thing is a lot of people say well couldn’t you just fill your beds now?

00:36:51.320 –> 00:36:55.320
But the problem is if you do that now the rain or the snow it’s gonna get packed down pretty well

00:36:55.320 –> 00:37:01.960
The whole point of that stuff is that’s supposed to be you know, it’s looser you can it’s easier. I mean you could

00:37:02.560 –> 00:37:07.760
But it might be a little bit, you know might not work out for it as well as as well as you think

00:37:07.760 –> 00:37:13.540
But like I said, I recommend that this is the time of year you go to Lowe’s or Home Depot and get all that stuff

00:37:13.540 –> 00:37:16.400
Also – let’s not forget as well

00:37:16.400 –> 00:37:21.400
Winter time coming up. That’s not you know, make sure you’re ready for the winter

00:37:21.400 –> 00:37:26.120
You have your supplies set up and all that obviously the weather you can’t control that snow is a big thing this time of year

00:37:26.120 –> 00:37:28.760
And then obviously, you know, I make sure you have you lose heat

00:37:28.760 –> 00:37:31.800
You have a secondary heat source you have blankets you have all that stuff

00:37:32.440 –> 00:37:37.600
Ready for the winter very important thing to to think about this time of year

00:37:37.600 –> 00:37:42.100
I know it’s we say it every year, but you know, it’s the winters can be brutal man

00:37:42.100 –> 00:37:45.860
This is you know, it’s that’s you want to do is get stuck without you know

00:37:45.860 –> 00:37:49.160
That chains on your tires or without you know

00:37:49.160 –> 00:37:52.280
You want to be ready? It’s I mean, it’s it’s winter time

00:37:52.280 –> 00:37:56.480
It’s it’s the temperatures are gonna be cold things gonna be you know, you want to be prepared

00:37:56.480 –> 00:38:00.560
So like I said, it’s always you can go back in a lot of our old episodes

00:38:00.560 –> 00:38:05.860
We have tons of episodes on winter. I like I said, I live up in the Northeast so we have pretty brutal winter

00:38:05.860 –> 00:38:08.920
so I take this time of year pretty seriously because

00:38:08.920 –> 00:38:11.520
It just it’s just that thing

00:38:11.520 –> 00:38:16.840
Also to you want to be careful any of your heat sources and all that kind of stuff house fires are very big this time

00:38:16.840 –> 00:38:19.740
Of year any of you that have live Christmas trees and stuff like that

00:38:19.740 –> 00:38:22.740
Make sure it’s watered make sure it’s you know, well that stuff

00:38:22.740 –> 00:38:27.480
You definitely don’t want to play around with any of that this time of year. The semi years noted for house fires

00:38:27.480 –> 00:38:32.000
So, please be careful as careful as you can be with that

00:38:32.000 –> 00:38:38.880
I’m also to a little homestead update my wife and I I’m not a big fan of you know

00:38:38.880 –> 00:38:40.880
we’re very fortunate the home we have but

00:38:40.880 –> 00:38:45.840
This year we actually are they after Christmas. They’re coming. We’re actually getting the entire house

00:38:45.840 –> 00:38:48.700
insulated and spray foamed

00:38:48.700 –> 00:38:53.880
Because it’s going through a lot of wood last year in the year before and stuff like that

00:38:53.880 –> 00:38:55.880
so I’ve decided that we’re going to

00:38:56.440 –> 00:39:02.600
We’re gonna have somebody come and we’re gonna really have this place well insulated. It’s an old we live in a in an old farmhouse

00:39:02.600 –> 00:39:05.800
on some land and

00:39:05.800 –> 00:39:10.040
It’s just so draft knee and all that kind of stuff and we just have so many problems with the heat and stuff of that

00:39:10.040 –> 00:39:12.040
So we are actually this year

00:39:12.040 –> 00:39:18.880
Really not doing much prep work around the house, you know this year than what we normally do but our big expense this year

00:39:18.880 –> 00:39:25.780
Is definitely going to be insulating. We’re gonna be doing the walls and all that. So it’s gonna be a

00:39:26.620 –> 00:39:32.220
Hopefully it’ll be a lot warmer in here. We’ll see if wood, you know, it’ll save heat. It’ll hopefully pay us back

00:39:32.220 –> 00:39:34.740
Over, you know

00:39:34.740 –> 00:39:38.040
The course of so many years. I know we do get a tax rebate from the government

00:39:38.040 –> 00:39:43.140
And we do get a bunch of other stuff like that. So we’re insulating this year over the summer

00:39:43.140 –> 00:39:48.280
We did the porch out back. We did new roof. We did all the new wood around it and all that

00:39:48.280 –> 00:39:49.920
So we did the porch over the summer

00:39:49.920 –> 00:39:54.740
So we’d be ready for winter, but we need to kind of do some stuff then unfortunately

00:39:55.220 –> 00:39:59.140
Isn’t isn’t the proper stuff I like to do but it’s stuff that needs to be done

00:39:59.140 –> 00:40:03.140
Obviously the better the house insulated the more heat you save less wood will go through

00:40:03.140 –> 00:40:06.520
Less money will spend on heat. So it’s one of those things where

00:40:06.520 –> 00:40:10.940
Don’t saying, you know, it’s you got to spend money to say spend money to save money

00:40:10.940 –> 00:40:14.300
Usually spend money to make money. But in this case you got to spend money to save money

00:40:14.300 –> 00:40:17.740
I’m sure this will they told us and I know the salesman and all that kind of stuff

00:40:17.740 –> 00:40:21.980
But he told us he showed us things. He said this should pay for itself in ten years. So we’ll

00:40:22.680 –> 00:40:27.560
We’ll see what happens but we definitely do I mean there’s almost no insulation the Attic I was up there with the guy

00:40:27.560 –> 00:40:29.860
We did some of the testers in the wall

00:40:29.860 –> 00:40:35.360
We took some of those instruments that test the cold and some of that and you could see right where a lot of the you

00:40:35.360 –> 00:40:40.660
Know these old homes weren’t really insulated. Well, they used to use burlap bags newspapers things like that

00:40:40.660 –> 00:40:47.320
But you know, it’s one of those things where back then they didn’t insulate that well because the heat was so cheap

00:40:47.320 –> 00:40:49.800
I mean look at how cheap gas was and how cheap oil was

00:40:50.640 –> 00:40:57.900
You know wood was free back then, you know, so, you know, they didn’t insulate that well because if energy wasn’t a big issue

00:40:57.900 –> 00:41:02.360
So like I said, you know, that’s that’s why these old houses aren’t insulated as well

00:41:02.360 –> 00:41:03.860
We did do the double paint

00:41:03.860 –> 00:41:06.620
We used to have single payment as we moved in we redid them all to double hung

00:41:06.620 –> 00:41:10.660
To save and that did save us quite a bit of heat this last couple years

00:41:10.660 –> 00:41:15.220
But this is something we’ve been putting off for a couple years. It’s not a not cheap. It’s fairly expensive actually

00:41:15.220 –> 00:41:19.900
But we’re gonna go ahead and we’re gonna do it. So we’re pulling the trigger on it

00:41:20.080 –> 00:41:24.640
And they’re coming the day after Christmas to do but the fun part is they have to come through my office

00:41:24.640 –> 00:41:27.160
To get up to the Attic

00:41:27.160 –> 00:41:31.180
So that’ll be fun the outside of the house won’t be too bad because they can get to all the outsides of the house

00:41:31.180 –> 00:41:34.500
pretty well first and second floor so that shouldn’t be too bad, but

00:41:34.500 –> 00:41:39.240
The the Attic is gonna be fun. Our Attic is like a maze up there too. So

00:41:39.240 –> 00:41:44.800
That’ll be that’ll be fun to do as well. So I’m not doing it. They’re doing it

00:41:44.800 –> 00:41:46.960
That’s what we’re paying for but that’s coming to be the day after Christmas

00:41:47.000 –> 00:41:51.980
So that will that’s gonna be a lot of fun. They expect to take a couple of days

00:41:51.980 –> 00:41:55.540
So there’ll be some disruptions around the homestead, but it is what it is

00:41:55.540 –> 00:42:01.480
The dogs thing I’m gonna bring outside and and the cats my wife is gonna bring put them in one room. So that’ll be

00:42:01.480 –> 00:42:06.100
And that’ll be fun also to some programming notes folks as well

00:42:06.100 –> 00:42:11.300
We will be having some kind of show in between Christmas and New Year’s. I’m off from work

00:42:11.300 –> 00:42:15.040
So I should have time to do it. I don’t know what we’re gonna do it on yet

00:42:15.420 –> 00:42:22.180
Usually that time of year is really quiet for politics and stuff like that. Maybe we’ll have some news if not

00:42:22.180 –> 00:42:28.700
We’ll find something last year. I did those documentaries. I talked about them covered them. So we’ll

00:42:28.700 –> 00:42:31.460
I’m sure we’ll figure out

00:42:31.460 –> 00:42:37.040
Maybe I’ll watch in the season of the new season of Alone on on Netflix or something like that

00:42:37.040 –> 00:42:38.820
So I’ll have something to talk about

00:42:38.820 –> 00:42:44.420
You know, I actually like those kind of shows I personally not just gonna prep her but because they actually learn a lot of bushcraft

00:42:44.740 –> 00:42:51.900
Skills and and things like that from there. You really do those shows are I think I mean, yes, they are reality TV they are for

00:42:51.900 –> 00:42:57.940
Entertainment value but a lot of those a lot of those shows are actually really good. You actually do learn a lot about

00:42:57.940 –> 00:43:04.660
Bushcraft and things like that. It’s actually like I said rather rather interesting to watch

00:43:04.660 –> 00:43:07.780
not just for the proper value, but just for

00:43:07.780 –> 00:43:12.140
And seeing how things are done and and kind of how people you know

00:43:12.140 –> 00:43:16.860
How people do things things you don’t think of stuff of that is actually those shows are

00:43:16.860 –> 00:43:25.380
Too educational to a point. So I want to thank everybody for listening and we will see you on the next episode

00:43:25.380 –> 00:43:27.380
Thank you very much
