know the hosting and the website stuff like that I’m not making a fortune here

00:00:39.440 –> 00:00:43.640
trust me I just would like to kind of cover expenses. Also too somebody asked

00:00:43.640 –> 00:00:48.160
me the other day if I could add like a PayPal button or leave me a tip or

00:00:48.160 –> 00:00:50.840
something like that I do have I’m working on that that might be something

00:00:50.840 –> 00:00:54.840
I might do as well but I might add that but that’s again something else not

00:00:54.840 –> 00:00:59.520
really that important but like I said is where you can help and go

00:00:59.520 –> 00:01:03.840
support the site. So a lot of things going on in the world since we talked a

00:01:03.840 –> 00:01:08.800
few months ago obviously been had some time off recently my wife and I actually

00:01:08.800 –> 00:01:13.720
have been we bought a cabin up in the woods and we’ve been traveling there on

00:01:13.720 –> 00:01:19.240
the weekends and stuff like that and going there very secluded very just just

00:01:19.240 –> 00:01:24.200
very nice that’s on quite a bit of land taking Opie up there to to train him and

00:01:24.200 –> 00:01:27.680
stuff like that we’ve been having just a really good time taking the kids up

00:01:27.680 –> 00:01:31.160
there going fishing and all that and fishing season actually opens up here

00:01:31.160 –> 00:01:36.880
recreation opens up here in Pennsylvania this coming this coming week this Friday

00:01:36.880 –> 00:01:41.000
coming up on Friday actually the first couple days from now but tomorrow and

00:01:41.000 –> 00:01:44.520
you know it’s it’s interesting recreation is opening at least this way

00:01:44.520 –> 00:01:48.640
this weekend I want to go fishing and Opie’s coming home as well he’s been

00:01:48.640 –> 00:01:53.860
out at training for the last four almost four weeks yeah five weeks you know

00:01:53.860 –> 00:01:58.400
learning his skills and training and all that and now looking forward to getting

00:01:58.400 –> 00:02:03.220
him back going out rabbit hunting eventually and going out as well going

00:02:03.220 –> 00:02:06.960
out bird hunting and all things you hunting stuff you can do over the summer

00:02:06.960 –> 00:02:12.240
but actually just really looking forward to you know getting him getting him out

00:02:12.240 –> 00:02:15.880
even even just to go fishing this weekend he’s been gone a while so

00:02:15.880 –> 00:02:21.920
looking forward to that also to folks I want to talk about something else when

00:02:21.920 –> 00:02:25.900
it comes to we’ve had a kind of change the way we we’ve done things with him

00:02:25.900 –> 00:02:30.940
we’ve had ran to a little issue with him with retrieving and and other things and

00:02:30.940 –> 00:02:34.100
I actually went with a I actually ordered this I’m gonna put their number

00:02:34.100 –> 00:02:37.900
in the I’ll put their number in the show notes ordered a collar from a company

00:02:37.900 –> 00:02:43.580
called as a dog truck and it’s a 200 C it’s got a half I have I have the 200 C

00:02:43.580 –> 00:02:46.040
which is a half a mile range I don’t let him go further than like a half a mile

00:02:46.040 –> 00:02:52.400
away half a mile range and it’s a hunting collar it also has the GPS in it

00:02:52.400 –> 00:02:56.740
and stuff like that so I can keep an eye on him when we’re hunting but like I

00:02:56.740 –> 00:03:02.560
said half a mile range you know it’s got it’s for it’s for his for his case it’s

00:03:02.560 –> 00:03:08.120
for dogs at 10 pounds or up they do have ones for smaller dogs but like I said

00:03:08.120 –> 00:03:12.320
it’s waterproof you know it’s you can run up to two dogs with it I’m actually

00:03:12.320 –> 00:03:16.700
gonna be running one but it’s the dog truck 200 C and that’s actually the what

00:03:16.700 –> 00:03:20.420
I I recommend that’s what I’ve been using that’s what he’s trained on I

00:03:20.420 –> 00:03:24.080
actually bought this because of the trainer that I have training him

00:03:24.080 –> 00:03:27.860
recommended it that’s what I’m using now so I wanted to some people that asked

00:03:27.860 –> 00:03:32.240
what we were using for him and on the Twitter and stuff like that my call

00:03:32.240 –> 00:03:39.600
sign kb3 yua and also you can follow us on twitter slash survivalist

00:03:39.600 –> 00:03:43.880
podcast but some people that asked what we were using that is what we were using

00:03:43.880 –> 00:03:48.520
so they’re not expensive they’re about a little under 200 if you go directly to

00:03:48.520 –> 00:03:52.040
the company like I said I’ll put it in the show notes you can go ahead and and

00:03:52.040 –> 00:03:55.880
call them they’ll give you a good price let them know you know Brandon from the

00:03:55.880 –> 00:03:59.360
survival has sent you and they will cut you a good deal I paid like I said a

00:03:59.360 –> 00:04:04.040
little under 200 for this with the shipping so really good really good bye

00:04:04.040 –> 00:04:07.600
also to folks one thing I wanted to point out with everything going on in

00:04:07.600 –> 00:04:13.760
the world – I feel like I’m running a sponsorship show here I swear also to on

00:04:13.760 –> 00:04:17.280
the one thing I want to point out I’ve actually been on my wife pointed me to a

00:04:17.280 –> 00:04:22.200
place called mercury which is a website where people can sell something make and

00:04:22.200 –> 00:04:26.440
I actually bought a bunch of camo masks that I’ve been wearing when we go out in

00:04:26.440 –> 00:04:30.520
public and stuff like that you can get up like six bucks seven bucks everybody

00:04:30.520 –> 00:04:33.040
should be wearing a mask when they go outside right now with every they’re not

00:04:33.040 –> 00:04:36.680
outside but in public with everything going on and you can get them I know

00:04:36.680 –> 00:04:40.200
some people don’t want to wear the hospital mask they want to look you know

00:04:40.200 –> 00:04:42.880
they want to kind of personalize and give them a good look if you go on my

00:04:42.880 –> 00:04:46.880
carry right now you can buy them you know a lot of some people been are

00:04:46.880 –> 00:04:50.720
wearing a mask not wearing a mask just because they don’t look cool you can go

00:04:50.720 –> 00:04:53.800
on there’s all different kinds of personalized math people are making all

00:04:53.800 –> 00:04:59.520
different stuff so go on there and get yourself a personalized mask and this

00:04:59.520 –> 00:05:02.440
way at least you’re wearing a mask when you’re out in public for your safety and

00:05:02.440 –> 00:05:07.480
of course the other people around you so very important just go ahead and and do

00:05:07.480 –> 00:05:11.200
that and like I said they’re very cheap very reasonable and that’s mercury is

00:05:11.200 –> 00:05:15.180
another place just trying to give you guys tips to kind of help you stay let’s

00:05:15.180 –> 00:05:19.240
stay healthy folks I mean that’s that’s the main thing right now I want to talk

00:05:19.240 –> 00:05:24.400
about this just a little bit the whole kovat 19 thing I mean I know there’s

00:05:24.400 –> 00:05:27.720
tons of people talking about news is covering every day it’s been going on

00:05:27.720 –> 00:05:31.600
for a couple months now we obviously we’ve most places like Pennsylvania we

00:05:31.600 –> 00:05:37.120
flattened the curb and that’s great but I want to talk about a couple of things so

00:05:37.120 –> 00:05:41.880
first of all with and believe me host this isn’t me being you know into the

00:05:41.880 –> 00:05:46.880
world’s coming ball that but I will say this I I don’t see I have two small

00:05:46.880 –> 00:05:52.880
children and I don’t really see the kids going back to school in September I just

00:05:52.880 –> 00:05:56.960
don’t see it when you look at the linguistics of trying to bust all the

00:05:56.960 –> 00:06:02.780
kids in and keep the kids six feet apart every kid’s gonna have to wear a mask in

00:06:02.780 –> 00:06:06.560
school well eventually the kids gonna have to take his mask off to eat so

00:06:06.560 –> 00:06:10.040
you’re gonna have that you’re gonna have to keep the kids in the hole together in

00:06:10.040 –> 00:06:13.720
a room for eight hours what if one kids sick then then do we you know there’s

00:06:13.720 –> 00:06:18.600
just so much linguistics involved with that I just don’t see the kids going

00:06:18.600 –> 00:06:22.280
back to school I could see adults possibly somehow going back to work in

00:06:22.280 –> 00:06:26.600
certain cases people are still working essential staff obviously are still

00:06:26.600 –> 00:06:32.160
working stuff like that I do see things like possibly the I do see bus stuff

00:06:32.160 –> 00:06:37.280
like I can see hair salons opening back up I can see certain things opening back

00:06:37.280 –> 00:06:40.000
up but I do think like the banks are gonna stick with drive-thru for a while

00:06:40.000 –> 00:06:44.680
I do see I do see the food places not being able to have crowds I can see no

00:06:44.680 –> 00:06:48.880
sporting events for the rest of the year I could see all that kind of stuff being

00:06:48.880 –> 00:06:53.920
canceled that I could see but I don’t see the kids going back to school in

00:06:53.920 –> 00:06:58.040
September I just don’t well that’s just me you know personally I just don’t say

00:06:58.040 –> 00:07:02.960
it I mean I could be wrong I’m just a guy doing a podcast but I don’t think

00:07:02.960 –> 00:07:07.120
that’s gonna be something you’re gonna see happen by some time right so they’re

00:07:07.120 –> 00:07:10.640
gonna happen I also don’t think we’re gonna see certain things we always see I

00:07:10.640 –> 00:07:13.280
know we’re not gonna see crowds for a while I don’t there’s gonna be any

00:07:13.280 –> 00:07:18.520
summer concert tours with any of these big rock bands or country singers or pop

00:07:18.520 –> 00:07:22.120
singers whatever I don’t see that happening anytime in the near future I

00:07:22.120 –> 00:07:26.720
have a feeling that’s gonna be something else that’s gonna be really gonna wait

00:07:26.720 –> 00:07:29.800
until next year I don’t see sporting events I don’t see the NFL starting up

00:07:29.800 –> 00:07:33.880
this year I don’t think baseball is gonna have a season there’s a lot of

00:07:33.880 –> 00:07:36.800
things I just I don’t see happening right now and I just don’t think I mean

00:07:36.800 –> 00:07:39.560
despite what they’re saying that you know things have to get back together

00:07:39.560 –> 00:07:45.980
and all that I just I just don’t see those kinds of things happening in the

00:07:45.980 –> 00:07:50.220
near future I just don’t not when you’re talking about crowds and and all that

00:07:50.220 –> 00:07:53.340
kind of stuff it’s just I don’t understand how you would possibly be

00:07:53.340 –> 00:07:57.780
able to do something like that but like I said I could be wrong things could

00:07:57.780 –> 00:08:01.340
change it could be a medical breakthrough tomorrow and but the way

00:08:01.340 –> 00:08:04.900
things kind of are right now I just don’t see that happening I would like to

00:08:04.900 –> 00:08:08.620
say though thank you to all the first responders anybody at hospitals doctors

00:08:08.620 –> 00:08:13.080
you guys are amazing you know keep trying to keep helping us as many people

00:08:13.080 –> 00:08:17.380
as we can and keep chugging along I do appreciate everything you’re doing and

00:08:17.380 –> 00:08:23.260
you know you can’t we can’t thank you enough for everything you’re doing for

00:08:23.260 –> 00:08:26.900
everybody so thank you for that but like I said I just there’s just so many

00:08:26.900 –> 00:08:31.860
things going on that I just I don’t see I mean I can see like I said I don’t see

00:08:31.860 –> 00:08:35.940
gyms opening up if you own a gym I feel bad for you I just don’t see I don’t see

00:08:35.940 –> 00:08:41.340
gyms opening up a place where sweaty people go and and work out and touch all

00:08:41.340 –> 00:08:44.660
this stuff and I just I don’t see Jim I mean I could be wrong but I just I don’t

00:08:44.660 –> 00:08:50.460
see gyms opening up anytime in the near future that’s just one of those kinds of

00:08:50.460 –> 00:08:53.700
things where it’s just you just don’t want people together like that I don’t

00:08:53.700 –> 00:08:58.340
want people sharing sweat and breathing on each other I just don’t see gyms I

00:08:58.340 –> 00:09:02.580
don’t see opening like I said I don’t I think I see restaurants still doing

00:09:02.580 –> 00:09:07.660
takeout I don’t see I don’t see sporting events anytime soon I don’t see bars

00:09:07.660 –> 00:09:11.360
opening up unless they’re gonna let people say but until the restaurants

00:09:11.360 –> 00:09:15.320
have seating I don’t see a bar opening up just a regular bar opening up where

00:09:15.320 –> 00:09:19.280
people can sit next to each other I don’t see that happen I don’t see there’s just so

00:09:19.280 –> 00:09:22.620
much that I just I don’t see opening up for a while and I hate to say that but I

00:09:22.620 –> 00:09:26.300
think it’s true like I said I mean look at I mean I’d like to see what the used

00:09:26.300 –> 00:09:30.620
car I mean they’re saying that you can do new car sales now possibly come May

00:09:30.620 –> 00:09:34.420
8th but even that how you’re gonna start you get a test drive used cars and say

00:09:34.420 –> 00:09:37.640
give you the key and say here you go have fun with it there’s gonna be a lot

00:09:37.640 –> 00:09:42.140
of things that I really think are gonna change hygiene is gonna change you know

00:09:42.140 –> 00:09:45.380
like on the boardwalk how you gonna stay like down the shore how are you gonna

00:09:45.380 –> 00:09:48.140
stay six feet away from people on the boardwalk I don’t think you’re gonna be

00:09:48.140 –> 00:09:52.820
you can’t look at how crowded those place gets I just don’t see those kind

00:09:52.820 –> 00:09:57.500
of things opening over the summer I just don’t I’ve possible but I mean I don’t

00:09:57.500 –> 00:10:00.900
know how you’re gonna stay six feet apart I don’t know how few you know it

00:10:00.900 –> 00:10:06.100
the whole situation is just gonna be so so difficult to try to any kind of

00:10:06.100 –> 00:10:08.500
recreation I mean like I think right now they’re opening fishing and hunting

00:10:08.500 –> 00:10:12.100
season around the first I met Pennsylvania which is great but I just

00:10:12.100 –> 00:10:17.600
don’t see those kind of things opening up anytime in the near future I don’t I

00:10:17.600 –> 00:10:22.740
mean I could be wrong but I I just it’s so difficult when you think of any type

00:10:22.740 –> 00:10:27.480
of big crowds any kind of social event it’s just it’s so hard when you when you

00:10:27.480 –> 00:10:32.940
people say six feet apart so but like I said I mean that like I said we hope you

00:10:32.940 –> 00:10:34.960
know things we have a big medical breakthrough here soon but I have

00:10:34.960 –> 00:10:41.080
feeling it’s it’s gonna be a little bit so also to folks kind of on a little bit

00:10:41.080 –> 00:10:45.480
nicer topic I want to talk about a couple people asked me I think I told a

00:10:45.480 –> 00:10:49.740
couple of asked about them team picks of opium I said because he’s been gone at

00:10:49.740 –> 00:10:53.460
training and he’s been gone for like about four or five weeks now those you

00:10:53.460 –> 00:10:56.060
either way my Twitter my Instagram all I’ve said that before go ahead and

00:10:56.060 –> 00:10:58.940
follow me on there if you want to see pictures of my kind of day-to-day stuff

00:10:58.940 –> 00:11:03.660
we do around here but I would like to point out so anybody that pointed had

00:11:03.660 –> 00:11:08.460
asked me about different kind of hounds and one of these I would like to point

00:11:08.460 –> 00:11:12.080
out a couple people brought up greyhounds and when you’re comparing

00:11:12.080 –> 00:11:15.620
them to beagles they’re a little bit different where beagles and basset hounds

00:11:15.620 –> 00:11:20.860
and all that they hunt by their by nose and that’s the thing they come by nose

00:11:20.860 –> 00:11:26.180
when you start getting into greyhound or Irish wolf hounds or stuff like that

00:11:26.180 –> 00:11:29.980
anything that they are how they are hunting dogs as well but they are what

00:11:29.980 –> 00:11:33.980
they call sight hounds they’re not like regular they’re both different where

00:11:33.980 –> 00:11:38.140
we’re bat where beagles and basset hounds and all that hump by their nose

00:11:38.140 –> 00:11:42.380
those guys are actually what they call sight hunters and so they’re a little

00:11:42.380 –> 00:11:47.100
bit different kind of different dog as far as how they hunt they’re not ones

00:11:47.100 –> 00:11:51.900
not better than the other but they do hunt differently so if you are looking

00:11:51.900 –> 00:11:56.700
into a greyhound or something like that for hunting do realize or even Irish

00:11:56.700 –> 00:12:00.420
like Irish setters of that like they when they go out they hunt by their nose but

00:12:00.420 –> 00:12:04.980
greyhound some of that and like I said wolf hounds I need deer hounds some of

00:12:04.980 –> 00:12:10.860
that they most of those guys hunt by by sight not by smell where a beagle and

00:12:10.860 –> 00:12:15.500
and a basset hounds things like that do you hunt by their nose so they hunt

00:12:15.500 –> 00:12:17.940
they hunt differently but they’re still great hunting animals we’re great

00:12:17.940 –> 00:12:21.260
hunting dogs so I do want to point that out if you’re looking there is a

00:12:21.260 –> 00:12:27.900
difference like I said between between a sight hound and a I forget what they

00:12:27.900 –> 00:12:31.740
call them I think they’re they call nose hounds I think something that or set I’m

00:12:31.740 –> 00:12:35.980
sorry has sent hounds though so it’s a the scent house so there is a little bit

00:12:35.980 –> 00:12:40.340
different there at the way they hunt so I just want to point that out also too I

00:12:40.340 –> 00:12:45.020
mean every dog any I mean any kind of honey dog can do any kind of hunting but

00:12:45.020 –> 00:12:49.460
I do find myself that the beagles because they’re scent hounds tend to a

00:12:49.460 –> 00:12:53.900
little bit better on the rabbit trail where the greyhounds and stuff they seem

00:12:53.900 –> 00:12:58.580
to be much better with the bigger game and they’re all good they’re all good by

00:12:58.580 –> 00:13:02.040
the way but they’re look there they all do things a little bit differently so it

00:13:02.040 –> 00:13:06.580
depends like I said we’re doing rabbit hunting any animal any any hound will

00:13:06.580 –> 00:13:11.140
work but the scent hounds are a little better at the rabbit hunting I think

00:13:11.140 –> 00:13:14.620
anyway where I think the the sight hounds are actually a little better than

00:13:14.620 –> 00:13:17.180
the the beagles are and stuff like that when it comes to the bear game and some

00:13:17.180 –> 00:13:21.660
of that they’re bigger they’re faster where the the the beagles can be a

00:13:21.660 –> 00:13:25.900
little bit better for small game and stuff like that but again they can all

00:13:25.900 –> 00:13:29.620
hunt but it’s just they’re just a little bit different depending on what you want

00:13:29.620 –> 00:13:33.300
to do I I didn’t want had a big dog for a lot of years and we wanted something a

00:13:33.300 –> 00:13:37.660
little small that’s why I want the beagle but some people really into

00:13:37.660 –> 00:13:40.860
rescuing the greyhounds and I think that’s great if you ever do think about

00:13:40.860 –> 00:13:44.600
getting a hunting dog and you want to rescue a dog those greyhounds a lot of

00:13:44.600 –> 00:13:48.500
them really need good homes and after they race them for a bunch of years they

00:13:48.500 –> 00:13:53.600
need homes and a lot of times people will actually take them in and those

00:13:53.600 –> 00:13:56.700
dogs a lot of times are even like five and six years old they’re so really I

00:13:56.700 –> 00:13:59.820
still got a lot of life left in them you could take one of those guys and train

00:13:59.820 –> 00:14:04.580
them and they are fabulous hunters and they like to run because they were ran

00:14:04.580 –> 00:14:08.740
especially like to say those old greyhound race race dogs that are some of

00:14:08.740 –> 00:14:11.420
them are four or five years old and they’re past their prime for racing but

00:14:11.420 –> 00:14:15.620
they still got a lot of years to hunt so that’s something you do as well that

00:14:15.620 –> 00:14:18.840
gets you into a hunting dog actually relatively cheaply a lot of those

00:14:18.840 –> 00:14:22.640
greyhounds really need homes and they’re bigger dogs too if you like if you’re

00:14:22.640 –> 00:14:26.560
not if you’re okay with a bigger dog you can get yourself into a hunting dog

00:14:26.560 –> 00:14:32.080
very very cheaply by rescuing a greyhound so I would like to point that

00:14:32.080 –> 00:14:35.280
out as well so that’s something to remember to how you that’d be a way you

00:14:35.280 –> 00:14:38.960
can get yourself into a hunting dog without spending a lot of money some

00:14:38.960 –> 00:14:43.040
other things folks as well I just want to talk about how about people have been

00:14:43.040 –> 00:14:47.560
talking to me recently about the about the economy and all that kind of stuff

00:14:47.560 –> 00:14:52.280
you know my wife and I like I said we just put a cabin you know it’s very

00:14:52.280 –> 00:14:55.840
difficult to buy things right now with the current state of the banks and money

00:14:55.840 –> 00:14:59.720
and all that is a little difficult we actually are the cabin up that we have

00:14:59.720 –> 00:15:04.820
is very small that’s just enough for the three four the four of us my wife and

00:15:04.820 –> 00:15:07.680
two kids and all that so it’s enough for us we actually paid cash for it it was

00:15:07.680 –> 00:15:10.880
relatively cheap we got it from an older gentleman that was just kind of looking

00:15:10.880 –> 00:15:16.520
to offload it so we bought it cash and you can if you’re looking to to buy you

00:15:16.520 –> 00:15:21.520
know a second home or a piece of land right now mortgage and stuff are really

00:15:21.520 –> 00:15:26.040
really tough you know it’s a really tough thing you might want to check if

00:15:26.040 –> 00:15:30.760
you’re gonna think about possibly buying a second home or a cabin or a spot to

00:15:30.760 –> 00:15:34.320
bug out you might want to look at how you’re gonna be financing because right

00:15:34.320 –> 00:15:38.280
now with everything going on the banks are very tight mortgage companies are a

00:15:38.280 –> 00:15:41.320
little bit looser when it comes to getting the mortgages and stuff of that

00:15:41.320 –> 00:15:44.480
banks or something to be a little bit tougher where the mortgage companies are

00:15:44.480 –> 00:15:48.560
a little bit looser so I would seriously about a mortgage company try to get a

00:15:48.560 –> 00:15:52.620
fixed mortgage on adjustable generally if it’s not your primary home you will

00:15:52.620 –> 00:15:56.240
end up with an adjustable mortgage a lot of times just because they feel it’s

00:15:56.240 –> 00:15:59.240
riskier because it’s a second home so you might want to look at something like

00:15:59.240 –> 00:16:03.040
that again that’s not I guess I don’t think you know it’s not something where

00:16:03.040 –> 00:16:05.920
you know you can’t afford it that’s why they’re giving you a fixed or adjustable

00:16:05.920 –> 00:16:10.080
generally on second homes they always give adjustables or they don’t give you

00:16:10.080 –> 00:16:14.040
so if you want to fix the interest rates not so good if you are looking though I

00:16:14.040 –> 00:16:16.680
would try to get a fixed rate the interest rate might not be so good but

00:16:16.680 –> 00:16:20.560
the fixed rates are probably the lowest they’re gonna be for quite a while so if

00:16:20.560 –> 00:16:24.000
you are looking at a second home now would be the time to buy the interest

00:16:24.000 –> 00:16:26.720
rates like I said are pretty low and if you could get a fixed rate maybe the

00:16:26.720 –> 00:16:32.600
interest rate might be a little more but you know at least you can go ahead and

00:16:32.600 –> 00:16:37.080
I mean at least you at least at that point at least you can try to you know

00:16:37.080 –> 00:16:41.480
kind of you know you get a lower rate than what you would get if you wait

00:16:41.480 –> 00:16:44.360
until things get back in the boom again if you can afford it I know there’s a

00:16:44.360 –> 00:16:46.960
lot of people not working right now now might not be the time to do something

00:16:46.960 –> 00:16:50.320
like that but if you can’t afford it now might be the time to look for a second

00:16:50.320 –> 00:16:53.600
home get a fixed rate the fixed rates might be a little bit higher but at

00:16:53.600 –> 00:16:56.920
least though you get a fixed rate and I don’t think the fixed rates are gonna be

00:16:56.920 –> 00:17:01.320
this low again for quite a while especially as things start opening up

00:17:01.320 –> 00:17:04.680
here in the next couple of months hopefully things sort of may appear in

00:17:04.680 –> 00:17:09.240
the next couple of months but so that’s just some advice on that some people ask

00:17:09.240 –> 00:17:13.720
me about stock prices too I will say one thing about stock prices if you are gonna

00:17:13.720 –> 00:17:20.240
look at doing stocks anything like Amazon Google Apple Microsoft those

00:17:20.240 –> 00:17:25.600
things are I mean if they’re lower now Facebook is even a low now they’re gonna

00:17:25.600 –> 00:17:30.360
go back up so if you now’s the time if you can I mean buy and just sit on them

00:17:30.360 –> 00:17:34.000
until the country opens up here real soon and I think things are gonna get

00:17:34.000 –> 00:17:37.520
you know things get better those stocks are going to Facebook or Instagram going up

00:17:37.520 –> 00:17:41.000
and stuff like that so those are pretty safe bets if you’re looking for

00:17:41.000 –> 00:17:45.760
investments for those of you like I said unfortunately that are that are out of

00:17:45.760 –> 00:17:50.280
work or doing you know waiting for your you know it’s a tough time I understand

00:17:50.280 –> 00:17:53.760
that most lot of people getting the stimulus checks now and stuff like that

00:17:53.760 –> 00:17:57.880
things are gonna hopefully start getting hopefully a little bit better for you

00:17:57.880 –> 00:18:02.120
but I know it’s I know it’s a tough thing right now and I wish you and your

00:18:02.120 –> 00:18:06.240
families all the best and fortunately you know this is what prepping is about

00:18:06.240 –> 00:18:08.920
you know we never thought something like this was gonna happen we’ve always

00:18:08.920 –> 00:18:12.880
looked us like we’re crazy for prepping and getting ready you know things maybe

00:18:12.880 –> 00:18:18.120
aren’t as you know we can get food we can get this kind of that but you know

00:18:18.120 –> 00:18:23.560
financially it were all in a tougher situation than we were so you know if

00:18:23.560 –> 00:18:26.120
business is quite you know someplace they feel bad for businesses they’re

00:18:26.120 –> 00:18:29.720
getting loans and stuff like that that are they got to pay back and stuff like

00:18:29.720 –> 00:18:33.360
that so it’s a very tough thing right now a lot of people on unemployment a

00:18:33.360 –> 00:18:36.680
lot of people unfortunately are saying they’re willing to risk their health

00:18:36.680 –> 00:18:39.840
just to reopen just so they can get back to work because they’re so desperate

00:18:39.840 –> 00:18:43.920
they need money so it’s it’s a tough time right now challenging time it’s

00:18:43.920 –> 00:18:48.720
very difficult to watch people that are willing to risk their health over

00:18:48.720 –> 00:18:52.080
something as you know just something because they need to work I mean they

00:18:52.080 –> 00:18:55.680
wanted to say well I’m willing to get sick just because I’m willing to risk my

00:18:55.680 –> 00:18:58.200
up my chances of getting sick just because I need to get back to work

00:18:58.200 –> 00:19:02.400
because we’re so desperate so it’s a very tough time very challenging time

00:19:02.400 –> 00:19:05.880
for everybody and it’s really unfortunate but that’s the world we live

00:19:05.880 –> 00:19:09.960
in a fortune where money is money is unfortunately well something that

00:19:09.960 –> 00:19:14.280
everybody needs and you know it’s one of those things where people are willing to

00:19:14.280 –> 00:19:17.120
risk their their health because they need their money and I get it I

00:19:17.120 –> 00:19:20.280
understand that if you got kids you can’t feed it that’s a tough thing

00:19:20.280 –> 00:19:24.680
that’s a real tough thing and you know people kill for that kind of stuff so

00:19:24.680 –> 00:19:28.920
that’s one of those things I will say this like I said though I think this

00:19:28.920 –> 00:19:31.280
thing start opening up things will start getting a little bit better for

00:19:31.280 –> 00:19:34.800
everybody I hope anyway we’ll see unemployment come down and stuff like

00:19:34.800 –> 00:19:37.240
that I’m sure they’re gonna do they’re good they’re saying they’re gonna have

00:19:37.240 –> 00:19:40.040
they’re having more stimulus packages coming and stuff like that for people to

00:19:40.040 –> 00:19:43.440
try to help them out but I have a feeling unfortunately unless unless we

00:19:43.440 –> 00:19:46.360
get a breakthrough and a vaccine then we start vaccine you’re at the feeling this

00:19:46.360 –> 00:19:49.800
is gonna this is gonna keep stretching on I have a feeling just I hate to say

00:19:49.800 –> 00:19:56.360
this this might be the new norm if they don’t come up with with something and I

00:19:56.360 –> 00:19:58.840
think that’s a scary thing to think about but it is something we all need to

00:19:58.840 –> 00:20:04.400
think about that it could be this could be the new the new norm you know and

00:20:04.400 –> 00:20:09.480
then that’s something I want to stress that you know if people looking like I’m

00:20:09.480 –> 00:20:12.680
nuts when I say that but it it’s possible this could be the new norm

00:20:12.680 –> 00:20:17.740
depending on if they can find a cure or not so like I said we’ll have to you

00:20:17.740 –> 00:20:22.560
know sit back and and and see what happens every day is another day so

00:20:22.560 –> 00:20:26.140
hospitals on lockdown I have family that’s in the hospital right now not for

00:20:26.140 –> 00:20:30.160
coded but civic arts you can’t go in and see them you can’t go you really can’t

00:20:30.160 –> 00:20:33.700
talk to them you call their phones and stuff like that but even that’s a little

00:20:33.700 –> 00:20:37.200
bit difficult because of reception problems of that but you know it’s a

00:20:37.200 –> 00:20:40.920
tough thing right now you know people in the hospital that you can’t talk to you

00:20:40.920 –> 00:20:44.800
can’t see because you know hospitals and all that are all on lockdown so it’s

00:20:44.800 –> 00:20:47.920
it’s a very difficult thing it’s very trying time but it’s something we’re all

00:20:47.920 –> 00:20:51.580
gonna have to work through and and really difficulty you know try to try to

00:20:51.580 –> 00:20:54.760
get through here as we go through and like I said it hate to say is but what

00:20:54.760 –> 00:20:59.080
if it is the new norm we don’t know we don’t know yeah and we’re just gonna have

00:20:59.080 –> 00:21:04.140
to watch and see how things kind of play out as we go forward so but I do want to

00:21:04.140 –> 00:21:07.240
probably want to come on here for a little bit and just kind of talk about

00:21:07.240 –> 00:21:11.280
things talk about that things are changing how you know I haven’t done a

00:21:11.280 –> 00:21:13.560
