While Chicago's beaches opened Memorial Day weekend, many of the city's 49 outdoor pools and 28 indoor pools remain closed. Today, 37 of the Chicago Park District pools are scheduled to open. One of the reasons behind the delay is a lifeguard shortage. The parks says there are 384 vacant lifeguard positions out of 821 budgeted for 2022. Host Jacoby Cochran spoke with City Cast friend and Chicago historian Shermann “Dilla” Thomas about his experience as a lifeguard growing up in Auburn Gresham and the importance of pools during these hot summer months. See what pools will be open July 5 and where they're located in the city.

In the original interview with John which was recorded October 2012, John talks about attending the Democratic National Convention of 2012, his involvement with the Democratic National Committee and Democrats Abroad, and the significance of the Japanese Taihoku prison wall in Taipei. Stay tuned for my follow up interview with John next week as we check in with him 10 years later to get an update from him. For the month of June we'll be slowing things down by sharing lost episodes every other week, and in July we'll be taking a break from the lost episodes.

Friends of the Rosary: Today in the U.S., we celebrate the Memorial Day of St. Junipero Serra, a Spaniard Franciscan priest of the eighteenth century who founded twenty-one missions — missions like San Diego, San Antonio, San Luis Obispo, San Francisco, and Santa Clara. Fray Junipero Serra converted thousands of Native Americans, and expanded the true faith on the West Coast. He brought the Native Americans not only the gift of faith but also a decent standard of living. He baptized over six thousand people and confirmed five thousand. Pope Francis canonized him in 2015, during his first visit to the U.S. July is traditionally associated with the Precious Blood of Christ, a reminder of his redemptive work. Ave Maria!

Just three Bad Dads this week and since that's three for the price of none, only you can judge whether that represents value for money. With all of us having equine obsessed daughters it seems suprising that it has taken us this long to discuss the Top 5 Horses, especially as reviewing our back catalog demonstrates that we've held a stable interest in them.We've reviewed a couple of Steven Soderbergh movies on the pod already – MAGIC MIKE, BEHIND THE CANDELABRA - but after the latter's release in 2013, Soderbergh decided to retire from filmmaking, citing the "absolutely horrible" mistreatment of directors by Hollywood producers, before returning with 2017's LOGAN LUCKY. And I say he retired but it wasn't exactly 4 years of sitting around and twiddling his thumbs. In that time, he composed an edit of HER for Spike Jonze (which he didn't use but said helped him finish the movie), posted edits of classic movies such as 2001 and PSYCHO on his website, edited the Magic Mike sequel MAGIC MIKE XXL and then produced and directed two ten episode seasons of Cinemax medical drama THE KNICK. Anyway, after he'd stopped all that mucking about, Soderbergh directed and edited this heist comedy based on a screenplay by his wife Julie Asner, in which Jimmy Logan (Channing Tatum) loses his job as a bobcat operator beneath Charlotte Motor Speedway due to being deemed an insurance liability and so plans a perfect crime in retribution. Together with his brother Clyde (Adam Driver), a former veteran with a missing hand, and his sister Mellie (Riley Keough) the boys set out to break the Logan family curse and rob the venue on its biggest weekend of the year, the NASCAR race on Memorial Day weekend. Well-made, fun and with a good bit of the old cultural critiquing go on around America's treatment of disability and the ugliness of the insurance industry whilst giving a platform to show a little warmth to the less featured red states, we're glad he decided to get off his lazy arse and start working again. From the people that brought you OCTONAUTS comes this not quite as charming redo of the same general principal, with a more cynical eye on penetrating the US market and toy tie-ins. We look at THE CREATURE CASES (Netflix), which came highly recommended by my youngest and sees Sam Snow, a snow leopard, and Kit Casey, a fox, working as agents for CLADE, the Covert League of Animal Detective Experts. It's monsoon season and the animals are escaping the perilous jungle floor to get to higher ground using the bullet train style Monsoon Express. But when the chief engineer is bitten by one of the venomous snakes aboard, it becomes a race against time to locate the perpetrator, extract their fang juice and synthesise an antivenom before the train crashes, killing them all. SPOILER ALERT, they do in fact all die.We love to hear from our listeners! By which I mean we tolerate it.

Due to Father Anthony being in Rochester this week, this is a re-air from May 31st. It has been edited for time at the end. Thank you. It's the Tuesday after Memorial Day and the Two Tony's have much to discuss more on trying to gain our sanity back and being civilized again due to all the hurt, pain, suffering, and carnage that has happened in the past week. With this in mind, Father Anthony points out that there is a rise of evil going on in the world and the Two Tony's remind us to keep our faith in God. https://ststanschurch.org/
It is that time of year when many patriotic thoughts arise as we see the flag flying high in the sky. I am very impressed in my travels to note where homes fly the flag on a daily basis. There are special days of the year beginning with January 1st, when we fly the flag resolving to keep our nation free. On January 20th, it is Inauguration Day, February 12th - Lincoln's birthday, and February 22nd, Washington's day and also on Presidents Day in February. In April we have Army Day on April 6th. On Easter Sunday we proclaim our freedom source anew. In May we have Mother's Day and Memorial Day. June brings us Flag Day and Father's Day. July 4th is Independence Day, the birthday of our freedom. A day when those stars and stripes wave over the land of the free and the home of the brave. Labor Day is when our flag speaks for the workmen in our country. September 17th is Constitution Day. October 12th is Columbus Day - the day America was discovered. October 27th is Navy Day, when the flag floats on ship or shore. November we have Veterans Day, a day of thanks for our freedom. December 25th Is Christmas day, when we honor Him who came to give everyone healing liberty. The American flag has the colors of red, white, and blue. Most national flags use one or combinations of seven basic colors. Red, white, blue, green, yellow, black, and orange. It was on June 14th, 1977 that Continental Congress adopted the Stars and Stripes Flag. Whoever the mother or father of this flag may be, we know it represents America the Beautiful and God Bless America. Patriotic thought: On guard then, O America, let nothing ever dead, the flame of true democracy nor still the fervent hymn of liberty and justice and noble destiny. Again, we raise our thanks to God, America for thee. God bless America. Warm Thoughts from the Little Home on the Prairie Over a Cup of Tea by Luetta G.

Welcome to this Summer Solstice edition of Midday. Today is the longest day of the year, and the official beginning of summer, and for all that summer has to recommend it, it is also a time when crime typically spikes in cities throughout the United States. Like cities across the country, Baltimore continues to reel from brazen acts of violence in communities across our city. A 15 year-old from Howard County has been arrested and charged with shooting into a crowd at the Inner Harbor over Memorial Day Weekend. One person died and two others were injured. 25 year-old Army Reserve Sergeant Ryan Harris was killed near his apartment on Calvert Street. Trevor White, a 40 year-old bar owner who helped develop communities in East Baltimore as part of ReBuild Metro, was killed in Northeast Baltimore. Three weeks ago, 83 year-old Marjorie Tyson was struck in the arm by a stray bullet while she sat in bed reading. Over the weekend, five people were killed and 10 were injured. We are running out of ways to describe this level of mayhem. For years, official after official has described crime in Baltimore as “out of control,” as voters elect them, time after time, on their promises to control it. Tom's Newsmaker guest today is Baltimore City Police Commissioner Michael S. Harrison. He was appointed as our city's top cop in 2019 after successfully overseeing a decrease in crime as the police chief in his native city of New Orleans. Commissioner Harrison joins us regularly to let us know what the police are doing to address the problems that according to a recent poll are the top concern of 90% of our citizens.

Tonight we recap what we did over the Memorial Day holiday. Mike brings up the new LIV golf league and how this could spell disaster for the PGA if the golfers can still participate in events. We talk about how our perceptions are changing as we get older. Which carnival games we sucked at. We ended talking about the new accusations against Deshaun Watson and how the Browns can deal with it. EDIT: In this episode we talk about Nintendo removing female drivers from Mario Kart that has been proven to be false.

Episode 383 - Clearing space Today we have Phillip. He is 46 and took his last drink on February 28, 2019. Exact Nature: https://exactnature.com/RE 20 Bozeman Retreat: https://www.recoveryelevator.com/cafere/ Early Recovery Podcast Guests: email email@example.com Highlights from Paul It's hard to visualize a sober life when you are still drinking because your body is using every drop of energy to get rid of the poison that is alcohol from your body. Paul suggests once you ditch the booze, sit back and be the observer to watch your life unfold and resist the urge to control everything. In his eighth year of sobriety, Paul bought a home in Costa Rica, a longtime dream. After quitting, his life became a blank canvas, and now he is exploring his love for nature in his new home – which would not have been possible if he was still drinking. Paul feels connected to his inner child and is grateful for his life today. In chapter 4, Paul wants to showcase listeners' talents. Feel free to send an edited MP3 file in under 3 minutes to firstname.lastname@example.org, and you may hear yourself on the podcast. Better Help: www.betterhelp.com/elevator - 10% off your first month [12:55] Phillip lives in Minneapolis, lives with his partner, has no kids, and works as an attorney. He is a marathon runner. Phillip started drinking in college. As life unfolded, he noticed drinking was part of all his life activities, from work to time with friends. He realized he drank every day, even the night before running a marathon. In 2017, he started to question if he had a problem. The thought of quitting drinking felt like quitting fun. In 2018, Philip decided to explore his relationship with alcohol as his New Year's resolution. He quit for four months with few problems. He kept a diary that tracked his cravings and triggers. He drank during a vacation which ended his streak. He found several reasons to start and stop. By the end of 2018, he returned to daily drinking and stopped keeping his diary, and brandy was his drink of choice. He noticed he was gaining weight, and his depression was worsening. He realized that moderation was a challenge. Choosing to drink or not drink daily was exhausting and caused decision fatigue. Phillip's sleep was terrible; one day, he found himself drinking at 3 AM so he could sleep … two hours before a run. It occurred to him that he was now drinking in the morning. As he reflected on his behavior, he saw three paths: continue drinking, moderate, or abstain altogether. He concluded that quitting was the past of least resistance because moderation involved constant decision fatigue. He joined the "no matter what" club. He got sober, learning how to get through the moments. He kept a spreadsheet that became a diary of his cravings. He tracked his cravings to he could identify trends. His most challenging moments came later in sobriety. Three months in, Memorial Day weekend was a huge struggle. Podcasts are a huge part of Phillip's recovery. He joined Café RE and began to connect with people. Many say you are the average of your top 5 people, and surrounding himself with non-drinkers has brought his life to a better level. He now enjoys a runner's high when he runs, which he never experienced when drinking. Phillip believes sobriety can be for everybody.

Dave Tribble knows Paul's dad Larry (Ep. #9) and he joins Paul on the podcast. Dave is from the Richmond area and after his U.S. Army service was completed, he and his wife settled in Hanover, Virginia. Dave talked about growing up, a long list of jobs he held as a young man and a car accident that changed his life. Dave is a United States Army Veteran and he and Paul talked extensively about his time in Vietnam. Dave came home in 1970 and had a hard time finding and keeping a job. His father-in-law got him an apprentice position in the electrical field and that led to a lifelong career with Dave eventually owning his own company. Paul and Dave talked about his likes and dislikes of running a company, why he likes central Virginia and he also told Paul about a “lawyer” joke that he told Larry a while back. They finished by talking about his family and his favorite hobby. Dave's wife is Betty and they have three sons (Kevin, Dave Jr. and Cory) and he and Betty have nine grandchildren. He and Paul then talked about golf … how much he loves it, some good stories and the life lessons it teaches you. This episode was recorded not too long after Memorial Day. In memory and deep appreciation of Dave's friends lost too soon and for all those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
Luke 8:26-39Then they arrived at the country of the Gerasenes, which is opposite Galilee. As he stepped out on land, a man of the city who had demons met him. For a long time he had worn no clothes, and he did not live in a house but in the tombs. When he saw Jesus, he fell down before him and shouted at the top of his voice, “What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you, do not torment me”— for Jesus had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. (For many times it had seized him; he was kept under guard and bound with chains and shackles, but he would break the bonds and be driven by the demon into the wilds.) Jesus then asked him, “What is your name?” He said, “Legion”; for many demons had entered him. They begged him not to order them to go back into the abyss. Now there on the hillside a large herd of swine was feeding; and the demons begged Jesus to let them enter these. So he gave them permission. Then the demons came out of the man and entered the swine, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and was drowned.When the swineherds saw what had happened, they ran off and told it in the city and in the country. Then people came out to see what had happened, and when they came to Jesus, they found the man from whom the demons had gone sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind. And they were afraid. Those who had seen it told them how the one who had been possessed by demons had been healed. Then all the people of the surrounding country of the Gerasenes asked Jesus to leave them; for they were seized with great fear. So he got into the boat and returned. The man from whom the demons had gone begged that he might be with him; but Jesus sent him away, saying, “Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you.” So he went away, proclaiming throughout the city how much Jesus had done for him. I didn't plan to make today all about Juneteenth, really. Back in May, when I realized that June 19th – this newly minted National Holiday – fell on a Sunday, I thought it would be meaningful and fun to collect our Mission Sunday offering for the month in honor of the occasion. And this week I asked Jeannie if we could sing “Lift Every Voice and Sing” – the Black national anthem - in honor of the day. And then I saw that we'd be reading that bit from Galatians, which promises that, baptized into Christ Jesus, we are no longer Jew or Greek, male or female, slave or free, but that we are all ONE, thanks to faith, thanks to the grace of our creator, and thanks to our shared humanity as children of God, too.So I thought perhaps the stars and the lectionary and the calendar might have aligned in such a way that maybe there's supposed to be more said and wondered about and learned, here, on this Juneteenth, after all.I'm guessing I'm not the only one who just started learning about Juneteenth, as something worth commemorating, within the last few years or so. It was only declared a national holiday last year, but within the last 2-3 years, Juneteenth started showing up on my Google calendar, much to my surprise. It just showed up, like Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Memorial Day, Arbor Day, St. Patrick's Day, Flag Day, Father's Day.And not only was I surprised and curious about that, once I looked into it, I was a little embarrassed that I'd never been taught or told about it before, since it's been celebrated by Black people in our country since it happened in 1865.The short story is that June 19th – Juneteenth – marks the day in 1865 when Union soldiers finally announced to enslaved people in Texas, that they were free. What's sad and significant and worth celebrating about Juneteenth, is that this announcement finally came to those enslaved children of God in Texas – the last state in the country to hear the news – which didn't happen until more than two months after the end of the Civil War, which the traitorous Confederacy and those longing to keep their right to own people lost, of course. And the announcement of Juneteenth's liberation came to enslaved Texans more than two years after President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation which would have otherwise, at least symbolically, granted them their freedom. So the significance of the Juneteenth holiday is that it means to mark for our country an even fuller, more comprehensive “Independence Day,” than what the 4th of July, ever could have meant for the millions of enslaved Americans who were owned and terrorized and treated as property for so many generations. Maybe you've heard what Frederick Douglass, the escaped slave and Black abolitionist had to say to white people about the 4th of July holiday, back in 1852: So, if we buy what Paul is selling in Galatians, and I hope we do – that our baptism and our faith and the abundance of God's grace makes us one in Christ Jesus, and that we are no longer bound by the labels and limits and institutions of this world; no longer male or female (remember last week's sermon about Pride and Pronouns?) … no longer male or female … no longer Gentile or Jew … and no longer slave or free … than the freedom and liberation of Juneteenth is quite a day worth celebrating for all of us, not just our Black neighbors, friends, brothers, sisters, and fellow citizens.Which brings me to Jesus and this strange story from Luke's Gospel. It's especially strange when we take it at face value and try to make 21st Century sense out of this moment when Jesus exorcises a host of demons from a possessed man, sends those demons into a herd of pigs, who are then driven madly into a lake where they drown because, apparently, even though fat floats, these pigs couldn't swim.Well, I learned a while ago that some smarter people than me believe this story – like so many stories in Scripture – might have more meaning if we read it literately, rather than just literally. (It's hard to take this story literally, anyway, when we're given the impression that Jesus arrives in a boat, on the shores of Gerasa, which was a town 25-30 miles inland from any significant body of water.) Anyway, these wise scholars point out that the occupying Roman army had a history of terrorizing the Jews in the region of Gerasa, so that when that possessed man names his demon “Legion,” a word used by Rome to quantify its military might, and when that “Legion” of demons gets cast into some unholy, unclean, symbolically sinful swine as far as Jews were concerned, and then drowned, anyone listening to this story in First Century Palestine, would have connected that demonic “Legion” to the “Legions” of the oppressive Roman Empire and realized that Rome just got owned by that Jew, from Nazareth, named Jesus.The moral and message of the story, then, would have been one of hope and vindication and justice and joy that the Kingdom of God, in Jesus, was more powerful even than the empires of this world. And, of course, that God, in Jesus, always stands for and stands with the outcasts, the outsider, and the oppressed in this world.So I see a lot of common ground between what Jesus is up to with the possessed man and the Gerasenes and what happened for the enslaved people in our own country a few generations ago: as always, Jesus' message is one of good news for the poor, freedom for the oppressed and release for the captives. Happy Juneteenth!Sadly, the other common ground we can find in this story is that not everyone gets that, or wants that, or is willing and able to hear that message of good news.In Gerasa, it was the swineherds and the townspeople who missed the point. The swineherds were probably mad that their valuable property – all of that livestock – was lost and gone forever. This is, of course, what upset so many slave holders, and the Confederacy, in general, back in the 1860's, too.And who knows what made the average bear in Gerasa so afraid that day – that a miracle had happened?; that a possessed man had been made well?; that an outcast had been welcomed in?; that they were being asked to look at him and at themselves and their past treatment of him differently because of what Jesus had done?Maybe all of that is the kind of thing that made so many – and still makes so many – uncomfortable and unwilling to acknowledge the beauty and fullness of what Juneteenth represents. Maybe all of that is why it took so long for the last enslaved people in our country to get news of their liberation … because their enslavers couldn't see their humanity or if they could, they refused to acknowledge or atone for how they had oppressed them so sinfully. Maybe it's why there were armed white people protesting and terrorizing a Juneteenth celebration in Tennessee, just yesterday.In that same speech about the Fourth of July, by Frederick Douglass, he also says simply, “Oppression makes a wise man mad.” And maybe that's what was up with that guy who was possessed and cast out and living in the tombs of Gerasa back in Jesus' day.“Oppression makes a wise man mad.” I think Jesus would concur. And I think this miracle with the possessed man, the exorcised demons and the drowned pigs is a picture of God's judgement against oppression of any kind. I think it is a picture of God's call for justice in an unfair world. And I think it's an invitation, on a day like Juneteenth, to celebrate that justice when it comes, to work toward more of it however we're able, and to hope for that kind of liberty and justice for all – and mean it, every day.AmenNOTES:You can read the entirety of Frederick Douglass' speech HERE.There's a great chapter about Juneteenth in Clint Smith's book How the Word is Passed: A Reckoning with the History of Slavery Across America.

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the weekly Compensatory Call-In. We encourage non-white listeners to dial in with their codified concepts, new terms, observations, research findings, workplace problems or triumphs, and/or suggestions on how best to Replace White Supremacy With Justice ASAP. We'll use these sessions to hone our use of words as tools to reveal truth, neutralize White people. We'll examine news reports from the past seven days and – hopefully – promote a constructive dialog. #ANTIBLACKNESS Forget all your tribulations, Victims of White Supremacy. Despite the rona, astronomical inflation, unrelenting White Terrorism and gun violence, Juneteenth is here. Replete with Wal-Mart brand Juneteenth sorbet. In between the fanfare, the Jan. 6th investigations continue, even though Gus has yet to see any evidence that the bulk of the White traitors will be prosecuted. This week marked seven years since Dylann Storm Roof's Terrorist attack on a Charleston, South Carolina church. Illustrating how little has changed in that time, a 15-year-old White teen was pictured with a "pellet gun" threatening to gun down black people - just like Roof. In South Carolina, Roof's home state, an 8-year old black child, Quarius Naqua Dunham, was shot to death during the Memorial Day festivities. A 40-year-old White Man is facing murder and attempted murder charges for the unprovoked slaying. #DomesticWhiteTerrorism #Juneteenth #TheCOWS13 INVEST in The COWS – http://paypal.me/TheCOWS Cash App: https://cash.app/$TheCOWS CALL IN NUMBER: 720.716.7300 CODE: 564943#

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the weekly summit on Neutralizing Workplace Racism. We barely survived Memorial Day and may not live to see Independence Day. In the interim, we'll have to make do with Juneteenth. A number of Whites have already voice their stringent opposition to this event becoming a paid federal holiday. If this day is "recognized" on your job, be prepared for tackiness and heaps of direct Racism. Kente cloth napkins, Wal-Mart's Juneteenth sorbet and buckets of fried chicken. We'll also revisit Covid-19 impact on the workplace. It may seem like things are back to "normal;" however, that is not the case. In Oregon, a number of White enforcement officials rejected all policies to ensure a safe working environment. They refused the mandatory vaccine and also flaunted regular testing requirements for unvaccinated staff. This sort of misconduct has been widespread for the duration of the Covid-19 crisis. Don't allow these antics to compromise your own commitment to health and safety. #IsYourCoWorkerPaytonGendron #Juneteenth #TheCOWS13 INVEST in The COWS – http://paypal.me/TheCOWS Cash App: https://cash.app/$TheCOWS CALL IN NUMBER: 720.716.7300 CODE: 564943#

In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending June 11th, 2022... inflation hits a 40-year high, demand grows for single family rentals, and a popular TV show inspires a Montana migration. Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review. Economic NewsWe begin with economic news from this past week, and a report that shows the highest rate of inflation since 1981. The Consumer Price Index was up 1% in May to an annual rate of 8.6%. It was 8.3% last month. The increase is mostly due to rising gas and food prices. If you strip those out, the core rate was up .6% to an annual rate of 6%, which was actually down slightly from 6.2%. (1)The report is setting off alarm bells. Financial experts are now anticipating a 75 basis point rate hike at the next Fed meeting in June, and further hikes in July and September. The talk so far has been more along the lines of two 50 basis point hikes in June and July, but as one wealth advisor told CNBC, this report was a “doozy.” Tom Graff of Facet Wealth says: “The most concerning part of this report was its breadth. The monthly number wasn't driven by a few items. Most of the major categories actually accelerated price increases month-over-month.” (2)As inflation fears grow, so do worries about recession. Now the Atlanta Fed is lowering its forecast for the second quarter from 1.3% to a gain of just .9%. (3) It's interesting to note that real estate accounted for almost 17% of the GDP last year. The National Association of Realtors says it was 16.9% of the GDP or about $3.9 billion. That's about $113,000 in total economic impact for each home sale. (4) The Memorial Day weekend may have contributed to a jump in jobless claims. MarketWatch says they were up 27,000 to a five-month high of 229,000. It calls them seasonal “quirks” due to the holiday and not layoffs. (5) Mortgage RatesAfter idling for a few weeks, the mortgage rate seesaw continues. Freddie Mac says the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was 14 basis points higher last week to 5.23%. The 15-year was up 6 points to 4.38%. (6)The average contracted rate of interest was higher. The Mortgage Bankers Association says the 30-year went from 5.33% to 5.40%. That corresponded to a 7% drop in purchase applications. Refinance loans were also down 6%. The MBA says mortgage demand dropped to its lowest level in 22 years. (7)Freddie Mac's deputy chief economist Len Kiefer said in a tweet that the “U.S. housing market is at the beginning stages of the most significant contraction in activity since 2006.” He said: “It hasn't shown up in many data series yet, but mortgage applications are pointing to a large decline over the summer.” He also clarified that he expects home sales to slow down quite a bit over the summer, but doesn't expect them to “grind to a complete halt.” (8) In other news making headlines... Pessimism Among Would-Be Homebuyers A new survey supports the idea of slower sales this summer. Fannie Mae's Home Purchasing Sentiment Index shows that almost 80% of the participants feel it's a bad time to buy a home right now. Almost as many people feel that mortgage rates will continue to march higher over the next year. (9)Fannie Mae expects a mild recession next year, but the agency says that inflation and rapidly rising short term interest rates could push us into a recession much sooner.Demand for Single-Family Rentals Big landlords are responding to a demand for single-family rentals. The National Association of Home Builders says that builders broke ground on 13,000 single-family rentals in the first quarter. That's a 63% increase from the first quarter of last year. (10) American Homes 4 Rent CEO, David Singelyn, told CNBC: “There are not enough quality homes for the number of American families.” He says the quantity of inquiries, showings, and applications for new rental homes is “two to three times greater today than it was two years ago before the pandemic.” TV Shows Drives Newcomers to MontanaMontana is getting a lot of attention as a great place to live, thanks to Kevin Costner's TV show “Yellowstone.” The show features the Dutton family and ranch-style living on large stretches of land with sweeping views of mountains and prairies. (11) Beartooth investment Group founder, Robert Keith, says his company has received influx of inquiries from all sorts of wealthy families who want to buy a ranch. He says: “They are looking to own really amazing large properties” like you see in the TV show. The show debuted in 2018 and has already pumped tens of millions of dollars into the Montana economy, but long-time Montana residents are worried it's attracting too many new residents and driving up home prices. The median home price was $500,000 before the pandemic. It's now almost $750,000. That's it for today. Check the show notes for links.

#LatePodPost We recorded this episode the week of Memorial Day, butttt life be life-in and we're a little late posting! Better late than never, right? Anywho, we discussed the impact of the pilot shortage and whether or not we'd take a trip fully planned and coordinated by a stranger, to an unknown destination. Also, we want to know if it's OK for someone to ask you to stop eating your snack because they have a medical condition that prevents them from eating theirs at the same time? Lastly, we share our super fun experience playing CluedUp where we galavanted about the Washington, DC streets searching for clues to help us solve a murder mystery! Did we figure it out??? Listen up to find out and check out videos during the game on TikTok @GOGTravels! Have any travel updates/questions/or cool stories? Let us know! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember - Life is short and the world is wide. Let's Galavant!

This year's NRA (National Rifle Association) Annual Meeting and Exhibits took place over Memorial Day weekend. Firearms manufacturers, advocacy groups, and media alike descended upon the city of Houston Texas for the three-day event. While the mainstream media may have put the firearms media event in a negative light, TFBTV's Hop and TFB's Austin Rex have a more positive take on NRAAM 2022. Join us today as we pontificate about this year's NRA Annual Meetings, and many other things perhaps only tangentially related to NRAAM 2022.
Even in times of rising inflation, people seem to be going out and spending money. This is likely to occur for some time until things are too expensive and we fall into a recession or in stagflation stateAt the moment the world has a handle on Covid and entertainment venues are filling the seats. So when going to an event, the question is: do you buy your tickets right away or do you wait? If it is a can't miss, people will pay up.If you decide to wait, there are many apps out there to buy tickets in the second hand market.So for the next question: is it better to wait until to pruchase tickets right up until the event occurs.Typically this is a good strategy, but more so when the event is not sold out as venues want to fill their seats.Recently, I went to a baseball game on Memorial Day weekend and it turned out that it was less expensive to buy the seats at Will Call rather than through an app. This is because the demand was high.As for sporting events, if the team stinks or you don't mind showing up after it starts this will save you money.Another strategy is to search for events straight through the venue as you can find packages that will include parking. We have found this to be advantageous. We parked close to the building and saved money. There's nothing like paying $60 bucks to park, right? The bottom line is that there is no right or wrong answer.As for my wife and I, being spontaneous keeps life interesting - we hop in the car, find an event and we keep some of our money from going to the overpriced ticket brokers.

With Memorial Day behind us and mid-June upon us, students across the country at various levels of education are donning their gowns, decorating their caps, and heading to the biggest arenas on their campuses to graduate. So, for those of you who just graduated or are about to graduate, George and I want to congratulate you and wish you the best of luck on your next steps, whatever they may be. Today, however, we're talking about what goes on after the ceremonies and after the final bells ring in the summer for students and teachers. Today, we're talking summer school in all its iterations, as we ask, “Is summer school such a bad thing?”
I hung my American flag on Memorial Day and plan to keep it waving through the 4th of July. I'm proud to be an American, and yet my citizenship is in heaven. One of the best things (and there are many wonderful things) about heaven is that we will all be united. No factions. No interest groups. No divisions. Every citizen of heaven stands united under the lordship of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I've not merely pledged my allegiance to the Most High God, I've completely surrendered my life to the King of kings, who has welcomed me into his kingdom and adopted me as one of his own. I like to read the Bible in a variety of translations because I see new things in different versions. I'm more familiar with the way the NIV puts Philippians 3:14, which says, “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Pressing on in my pursuit of God's heavenly call opens my eyes to truth. The cross of Christ has its enemies and its champions. Its enemies are focused on earthly things, but its champions press on toward the goal to win the prize only God offers. As citizens of heaven, we eagerly await our promised Savior, and we keep our minds set on things above. We align ourselves with the cross of Christ and trust he will lead us in victory. I am a citizen of heaven. Therefore, I've pledged allegiance to the Most High God, I've surrendered my life to the King of kings, and I've stood firm in the knowledge that the Sovereign God has welcomed me into his kingdom and adopted me as one of his own. I want to invite those of you in the Fresno/Clovis area to a long-awaited book release party. My book, Longing to Belong, released during the lockdown, which kept people from assembling and kept bookstores from operating. I never got the chance to celebrate, but now I finally get to have my party! And I get to multiply the fun! Two of my friends recently launched their books, and so we're throwing a Book Release Party x 3. My friend Penny has written a memoir for a woman whose daughter battled Lyme disease. My friend Carrie has released a romance novel with delightful characters. My book is based on an in-depth study of Psalm 139. Mark your calendar for Friday, June 24 at 7 p.m. to gather in my lovely backyard with the authors of three very different books and our book-loving friends. Send me an email at email@example.com to learn the location of the Book Release Party x3, and please spread the word! This week's scripture: Philippians 3:14-21
You can do whatever you want with your life; you don't need anybody's permission or approval to make it happen. Your destiny is 100% up to you. -- Getting What You Want In the last few years, people have become increasingly popular for sharing every little aspect of their lives with others. But, when it comes to getting what you want in life, keeping your plans to yourself is a powerful tool. Memorial Day has just passed, and when I arrived at my desk on Tuesday, I had two client messages that made me smile. The first said, "I decided to spend my weekend practicing what I do in private so that I will be praised in public." That's something I've said and done many times. The second client told me they had completed a new project over the weekend and headed in a new direction. When I mentioned they had never said a word to me about it, they said, "I know. I'm learning that nobody needs to know what I'm doing to do. I'll do it, and they can catch up." My heart smiled as I witnessed three powerful tools impact my client's lives: 1) Practice privately until you are ready to share with the world. Nobody needs to know how you got so good at what you do. 2) There's no need to tell anybody what you will do. Just do it and then let them know what you've done later. 3) It's easier to get things done when everybody else is busy doing something else and isn't poking their nose in your business. Long holiday weekends and summer vacations are a great place to begin. -- Join our Facebook Group at https://dailyboostpodcast.com/facebook Download the Perfect Week Planner at https://perfectweekplanner.com Visit our content hub to find more resources at https://motivationtomove.com Like the show?
