​Prosciutto is the Italian word for ham. Each paper-thin slice boasts a sweet and salty flavor, thanks to a traditional curing process that has been around since ancient Roman times. Few in the U.S. know more about it than Eataly's Tess McNamara, head of salumi and formaggi, who goes into great detail about the ingredients and process for curing the meat. She shares Eataly's variety of prosciutti sourced from the very best salumifici (cured meat producers) throughout Italy. Among them, Prosciutto di Parma, a delicate, sweet cured pork made in Parma, a small province in the heart of Emilia-Romagna, which is considered one of the oldest varieties of prosciutto.Follow @eatalyflatiron @tessofthecaves @prosciuttodiparma_it @ingredientinsiders @truffledawg @theprosciuttoqueenhttps://www.prosciuttodiparma.com/https://www.eataly.com/us_en/stores/prosciutto/In partnership with The Chefs' Warehouse, a specialty food distributor that has been purveying high-quality artisan ingredients to chefs for over 30 years @wherechefsshophttps://www.chefswarehouse.com/Produced by HayNow Media @haynowmediahttp://haynowmedia.com/

Which Is Better? On today's podcast - we're going to be covering how visibility affects safety. So stay tuned. You can find the show notes to each episode, links to the information mentioned on the podcast, the social media platforms we're on, and anything else related to the podcast at WarehouseSafetyTips.com. If you're a seasoned Podcast Listener - this podcast is going to be different from most you listen to.  It's based around exactly what the name implies - Warehouse Safety Tips.  And since the people in that industry are busy - we know time is money, so each episode will be as short and to the point as possible. And now that all that is out of the way - let's get to the Podcast! If you've ever been to the Eye Doctor - you're probably used to them adjusting the various lenses and asking, "Which is better?  This or that?"  It's this process of elimination that helps them determine what type and strength of prescription you need. Whether it's you, a Safety Coordinator, Maintenence, and/or Management - it's important to walk your entire facility and make sure everything can be seen as needed and/or required. This would apply to - but not be limited to: Signs Tape Paint Lights (Indicator, Emergency, etc...) First Aid Fire Extinguishers Defibulators Chemical and Eye Wash Areas Exits Chemical and Toxic Substances Indicators Emergency Instructions Do Not Enter Areas And many more... And it's not just that they're visible - but also legible.  Sometimes time and/or wear and tear can affect the visibility of items - where they need to be cleaned, painted, and/or replaced altogether.  The placement, angles, and/or height of items can also make a major difference with visibility.  So it might require you to have one or more people stand around an area while you make adjustments.  Where YOU'RE asking, "Which is better?  This or that?" The point is - safety won't be as effective as possible if you can't see what you're supposed to be doing.   We look forward to seeing you next week for another Warehouse Safety Tips. Until then, have a great week and STAY SAFE! Before moving on - here's a word from one of our sponsors. If you've ever been to or worked in a warehouse - you know just how important safety is to both management and staff.  It's almost impossible to go 10 steps without seeing Safety Tape, Angles, Signs, and/or products.  It's these items that show us how to be safe and avoid danger in the workplace.  And if you're looking for the best products to make this happen - look no further than Mighty Line! Mighty Line Floor Signs / Floor Markings offer the best industrial products out there! Go to MightyLineTape.com/SafetyTips to request a Sample Pack of their incredible Safety Signs and Floor Markings.

Brown sugar is an ingredient with widespread use contributing a dark sweetness to both baked goods -- and savory dishes for sweet sauces and glazes. Its distinctive brown color due to the presence of molasses adds depth in flavor -- and has been a familiar taste since it originated during the sugar trade in the 1490s. Professional pastry chef Auzerais Bellamy of Blondery, a female and minority owned direct-to-consumer bakery, shares why brown sugar is essential to her baking, how the ingredient has evolved over decades, and her efforts to bring more diversity and equity to fine dining kitchens. Wholesome Sweeteners' Mitchell Kruesi reveals how the brand became the first to bring high-quality, organic and Fair Trade sweeteners to the US, and their expansive portfolio of sugar, honey and agave products that are changing the sweetener market today.Follow @blondery @wholesomesweethttps://blondery.com/https://shop.wholesomesweet.com/In partnership with The Chefs' Warehouse, a specialty food distributor that has been purveying high-quality artisan ingredients to chefs for over 30 years @wherechefsshophttps://www.chefswarehouse.com/Produced by HayNow Media @haynowmediahttp://haynowmedia.com/

And now that all that is out of the way - let's get to the Podcast! Do you have anyone in your house that constantly checks the expiration date of items?  You'll usually see a sticker or stamp that reads, "Best If Used By" followed by an Expiration Date. Most of the items in your facility will differ from those you have at home - but, the exercise of making sure everything is up-to-date is just as vital. If you take the time to make a list of all the things you could and/or should be checking on a regular basis - you might be surprised how many items you jot down.   Here are just a few to get you started (Some with and without actual expiration dates): If applicable, are the batteries in your smoke detectors good? Do all the flashlights at your facility have good batteries? Are all the light bulbs good in your exit and emergency signs? Are all other light bulbs in your facility good? Do your steps and potentially wet areas have all the tread and/or grit needed to avoid slips and falls? Are all your Fire Extinguishers properly charged and inspected? The list will grow larger and larger the more you brainstorm and/or walk around your facility looking for more items and routines to add.

Charles Dickens - A Christmas Carol - Episode 1 - The Architect Of The Victorian Christmas!   /Hi, I'm Christy Shriver and we're here to discuss books that have changed the world and have changed us.    I'm Garry Shriver and this is the How to Love Lit Podcast.  If you are listening to this in real time, we are nearing the end of 2021, a year that has been lackluster by most measurements albeit an improvement to 2020.   Most of us began 2021 tucked away in quarantine.  I was teaching on Zoom; Christy was meeting with only half of her students half the time on a hybrid schedule.  No year, in my lifetime, has began in such a strange way.  In some ways, it felt that the Covid era would never end.    And yet, here we are, celebrating the end of 2021 with family and friends. We started this end of year holiday season cooking turkey and ham for Thanksgiving dinner in our home- American staples.  We have attended friendsgivings, Christmas parties and on December 23rd we will participate in another Memphis tradition that was suspended for the 2020 year, attending with most of our children: Anna, Lizzy, Ben and Rachel- Theater Memphis' annual performance of  Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.  For those who don't know our family dynamic, we are a growing blended family.  Anna and Lizzy have lived in Knoxville, TN for most this year as students at the University of Tennessee in Knoxviille.  Ben and Rachel live her in Memphis, and Emily and Joel live in Atlanta with their three children- Selma, Polly and Ezra.      I love Christmas.  I love the food, decorating our home, visiting with friends, the special services at church- all of it.      Well, I do too, but I will say, since marrying into the Shriver family, I have learned to take it to the next level.  Shriver's are notable for their holiday passion- all holidays really but especially Christmas.  I will also say, that before studying for this podcast, I had no idea so many of the Christmas traditions that we love so much we owe to Victorian England.    Oh for sure, in fact, Christmas was not even a federal holiday in this country until 1870.  And even then it was an unpaid holiday.  It didn't become a paid holiday until 1938.      Well, that is very Scroog-ish.   So, let's talk about which Christmas traditions we inherited from  Victorian England- many of which have found their way all around the globe.  You know, growing up in Brazil, just by nature of the weather we had different holiday traditions- we were in the Southern hemisphere, so instead of wishing for a white Christmas- we were always looking forward to heading to the beach after Christmas, but even in a climate with more palm trees than pine trees although, my friends parents were putting up little Christmas trees and other decorations- I emphasize little not because they were belittling the traditions but there was much more limited economic access ( remember Brazil in those days was a military dictatorship with high government control) but even as such- It's interesting to see some of these same Victorian traditions.      In 2017 a very interesting movie came out, The Man Who Invented Christmas, based on a 2008 book by Les Standiford of the same name, but this book and movie credit Charles Dickens who lived in England during the Victorian era with basically inventing the holiday with this Novella A Christmas Carol.  Of course that clearly is hyperbolic.  Christmas was already celebrated all over the Christian world, and that included Great Britain, but it is not wrong to say that Dickens strongly impacted the way the British and then ultimately the rest of the world would perceive and even celebrate Christmas.  For one thing, although Christmas is a Christian holiday and obviously celebrates the birth of Christ- the emphasis of Dickens is on Christian virtues, many of which are shared by faith traditions besides Christianity.  So in this way he opened up the celebration to something larger than a Christian sacred day.  This book with its emphasis on human kindness, generosity and mercy contributed to universalizing the festivities- extending the sense and holiday sentiments beyond the sacredness of the religious elements of the day- which is why Lizzy and Anna's friends, many of whom are Muslim, Buddhist and Hindu, still feel comfortable celebrating Christmas in their own way without necessarily feeling as if they are violating their own faith tradition.    Even if you just focus on the historical context of Victorian England, I would suggest, instead of seeing Dickens as creating anything, a better way to look at it is that was part of the Zeitgeist of the moment that was already emerging.  Of course, this is debatable and I do not want to take away a single thing from the greatness of this book, but as I see things, this new way of viewing Christmas was an emerging trend, and his book hit at that right moment, extending it further and perhaps cementing some of these ideals into the ethos that would become the holiday spirit we understand Christmas to embody today.   I would also say, just like the Americans, the British had also been a little Scroog-like in doling out holidays to the working man up to that point.  In 1843 when A Christmas Carol came out, it was a bank holiday in Britain but not a holiday for everyone else.  That's why Scrooge could buy a turkey at the end of the story- it was a regular work day for the butcher.  Christmas was definitely a religious moment, and it definitely was a moment to share a meal together,  but nothing like we think of today.  We didn't point this out when we were analyzing Emma (the Jane Austen book from 1815)- but in that book we saw the Woodhouses celebrating Christmas by eating a meal but there wasn't a tree or caroling or anything else you'd expect to see in a British novel featuring Christmas.  Christmas, as we celebrate it today, emerged in Britain in many ways due to the elevation of the working class- and even though there were many struggles with this second industrial revolution- it is partly responsible.  For example, in order to protect workers, in 1833, a new set of laws were introduced that gave the working class a set number of days off- finally!  Also, companies with their mass production of goods began to see the holiday as a commercial opportunity- and although this has been received with mixed reviews over the years- it did incentivize the spreading of Christmas cheer so to speak.     There was also a German tradition that was introduced into the British culture which has trended around the world since then and that is the big emphasis on the Christmas tree.  That tradition can, in large part, be attributed to King Albert, Queen Victoria's husband.  Of course we must remember that King Albert was German, and, of course, the Germans and the Austrians had been celebrating Christmas, from my perspective, much more festively for some time.  In fact, and I know we don't have time to get into this here, but both the Americans and the British had actually banned Christmas a different points in their historys= but not Germany and Austria.   They had Christmas markets, Christmas music including the very popular Silent Night.  They had Santa Claus, the advent calendar and of course-  the Christmas tree.  Tradition has it that Martin Luther set up a tree, complete with lit candles in his living room and there it started.  But almost 250 years later, King Alfred introduced this wonderful tradition to the British public in 1848 with a drawing of the Royal family celebrating Christmas around their tree.  That drawing went viral- and there you have it- the Christmas tree was a thing.      It's so amazing to me, how some things catch on and others don't.  I was also interested to learn this is the era where we got the idea of the Christmas card- a practice I love but hypocritically don't practice.  Every Christmas when I get cards from my friends and family, and tape them to the door and then vow that next year will be the year I send out cards- but then I don't.  I will vow again- 2022 will be the year!!  But back to  1840s, a man by the name of  Henry Cole commissioned an artist to design a card for Christmas.  He sold these for 1 shilling a piece, which is kind of expensive, but the idea took off.  People made their own and mailed them to friends and family.  By 1880, Britain was producing and selling over 11.5 million Christmas cards.      And of course, returning to the successes and excesses both good and bad of that second Industrial Revolution.  Those horrible factories that often employed children and overworked and exploited workers which are things we're going to talk about- the technology within them also made it possible to mass produce toys that were finally affordable for average people.   And although feasting and gifts for the average person couldn't be a part of the year as a whole, these technologies made it possible at least once a year for toys to become things that would eventually end up under that Christmas tree, and cheap mass produced decorations could be brought into ordinary homes in ways that had been reserved for only the wealthy previously.        Which brings us to Christmas Carols – The Victorians re-popularized this tradition as well.  Again, back to industrialization- it was affordable to print and multiply copies of music.  Middle class people were buying pianos and singing around them- but even in working class homes where a piano was out of the question- carols were holiday entertainment and popular- and still are- and for good reason.  Singing together is a communal activity- it's fun and a shared experience that's actually bonding,  It's something friends and  families can do together- no matter age differences.  Paul Dooley, a friend of ours, taught English and then Latin at Bolton High School.  And I will never forget the years he got his Latin classes to sing Christmas Carols to us in the halls of Bolton High School.  He has since told me that his students were very reluctant to get out there in front of their peers, but once they got going they loved it- as did we all- and it's still a Christmas memory for me.        OH for me too- as a musician I love all the Christmas music- it may be one of my favorite parts- and I do nothing but listen to Christmas music in my car from Thanksgiving until Christmas- I will admit I do try to avoid getting whammed though, as much as possible.  Oh yes- I also avoid getting whammed- although that expression may need a little clarifying.  Explain to us what you mean when you say, you don't want to get whammed!  Well Wham is the name of a a British Duo- Wham released in 1984 what is likely the most overplayed Christmas song in America- “Last Christmas”. You cannot go to Target or the Mall without hearing it- in fact, hearing “Last Christmas” is how you know the Black Friday shopping season has begun.  This year, our daughter-in-law Rachel, who works part time at Target, came into Thanksgiving and said, “I've already been whammed”!!  She got whammed BEFORE Thanksgiving.  It has become a joke.  But a fun one- because even getting Whammed is a fun thing- Which brings me to this question- isn't “A Christmas Carol” a strange title for a ghost story?  And taking it a step further, isn't a ghost story an inappropriate genre for Christmas.  When you see a title like “A Christmas Carol” you don't expect the first chapter to be named “Marley's Ghost” and the first three words to be “Marley was dead.”    Exactly- and of course, as all great writers do- Dickens very cleverly and  intentionally  linked this ghost story with the idea of music and Christmas music.    Of course, as we talked about with Shirley Jackson and Hill. House, Gothic literature was very popular during the Victorian era- and a money maker for sure- so ghosts were a go-to idea, but that, for my money, isn't the best reason I see Dickens chosing the genre for his Christmas tale- although it is an ingenuous idea.  As you know, I don't like ghosts or ghost stories, so for me, it was a negative that this story is ghost story.  I remember watching the version that came out in 1984 with George C Scott and being scared out of my mind.     But, the more I understand the purpose- the thematic ideas behind these choices- the less these Christmas ghosts frighten me and the more it makes sense.  It also helped after I looked a little bit at Dickens life and the world he lived in.  For me, it helped highlight the thematic focus I may have missed in 1984- although- as with all great literature- we do want to again make the disclaimer that context is interesting- but not everything to understanding any piece of art.  Art, by definition takes a life of its own.    Of course, that goes without saying, and I'm sure this is my history and psychology background, but for me, I really do enjoy a book more when I know a little about the person who wrote it and the world in which he or she lived.    Well, le me introduce you then to the great- Charles John Huffman Dickens.  He was born on Feb 7 1812, the second son of John Dickens who was a clerk in the Navy Pay Office.  This was a middle class lifestyle and for a while Charles had an upper middle-class upbringing that included a private school education.  However, John Dickens spent more than he made, and at some point- the creditors came for him.  And at that time as you know, if you owed money,  the government threw YOU and your family into prison and you had to stay there until someone paid your bills for you.  This was an extremely traumatic experience, as you might imagine, so much so that it shows up in some form or another in almost all of Dickens works. Little Charles, however, because he was 12 didn't go with his family to prison.  He was old enough to work, so instead of prison he went to work at Warren's blacking Warehouse, and for ten hours a day he would paste labels on to pots of shoe polish.  He made 6 shillings a week and with that he had to pay for his own room and board.  Any money left over went to the pay off his family's debts- although at that rate, he was never going to pay that debt off. It was a brutal and extremely lonely experience.  Fortunately, he only had to do this for a year before a relative died and left money to John.  The family then got out of prison ,and Charles could go back to school- but that year was enough.  For one thing, as a 12 year old, he spent the hours he wasn't working in the streets unattended and most of the time starving.  Charles later said,”I suppose myself to know this large city as well as anybody in it.”  He saw it from the underside through the eyes of a hungry, lonely overworked dirty child.   He never got over that- and he never forgave his parents for it either.  In fact, he was so ashamed of that year and his father's incarceration that he kept the whole thing a secret for years.   He said this years as an adult when he was finally able to talk about the experiences of that year, “It is wonderful to me how I could so easily have been cast away at such an age- no one had compassion enough on me.”  Dickens saw and experienced to the bone,  the horror was is the complacency and cruelty of humans can have towards other humans- this he felt was at the heart of things.  His experiences were shameful to him, and he could hardly talk about it except through his fiction.    Anyway, he did finish school; he got a job working for a lawyer and eventually got into journalism where he the courts of Law and House of Commons.  He also began to write not just news things but stories too.  This was during a period of English history where books were only for rich people, but he didn't publish books.  He published stories in periodicals- and this is how he became popular.  Eventually  he did publish these stories in book form that book he called Sketches by Boz; two months after that was published, he married a woman named Catherine Hogarth.  Soon after that he started writing serials and there he was-well on his way the road that would eventually lead him to celebrity- truly.  Of course, there is a lot about his personal story that I'm not super-cool with, and I'm not sure I would have liked Dickens if I had met him in real life- I always wonder about that- although it makes zero difference one way or the other.  But we won't focus on that for the Christmas Carol, maybe if we do another Dickens novel- but  getting back to our narrative by the beginning of the 1843, he's already a pretty famous public figure. He's even gone on a year long tour of the United States (a place he kind of had negative things to say about- btw- including our poor hygiene apparently)     That's funny- during that time period- he likely was right.  Americans hadn't adopted the daily bath routine yet.      Ha anyway, Dickens read a parliamentary report by a man named Thomas Southwood Smith titled The Second Report of the Children's Employment Commission.      That does not sound like a bit of light reading.      HA! I should think not.  This report delineated many abuses and realities surrounding the untold numbers of child workers.  Reading this really upset him, of course he knew all too well the realities facing these children and many unmarried women, as well.  He took it upon himself to visitwhat he called “ragged schools” – we'd call them urban poor schools- but he called them ragged schools because everyone was dressed in rags.  So many of the children were working as prostitutes and thieves.  In October he went to Manchester and traveled around that industrial city.  He saw whole families in the streets starving.  The complacency and inhumanity of it all was something  he wanted to write about it.  He said this,  “ I have very seldom seen, in all the strange and dreadful things I have seen in London and elsewhere anything so shocking as the dire neglect of soul and body exhibited in these children.  And although I know; and am as sure as it is possible for one to be of anything which has not happened; that in the prodigious misery and ignorance of the swarming masses of mankind in England, the seeds of its certain ruin are sown.”   His first idea was to write a pamphlet entitled ‘An Appeal to the People of England, on Behalf of the Poor Man's Child'. But then he got a better idea, a lecture is not something people want to hear.  Why not deliver his idea as a carol- a Christmas Carol- and why not make it a ghost story- but a short one- a novella designed to be read out loud in under a couple of hours.  And that is what he did.  It took him only six weeks once he got started.  He wanted it out by Christmas.  He wanted it illustrated in beautiful colorful illustrations.  His vision was so pronounced he was uncompromising when it came to making it a reality, so much so that he ended up having to pay for the publication  himself.      And history was made.  It was a smash hit from the first review and I quote, “Mr. Dickens has produced a most appropriate Christmas offering and which, if properly made use of, may yet we hope, lead to some more valuable result then mere amusement.”   It sold out immediately and the publisher went on to produce as many as they could as quickly as they could.  Within weeks it became a play (which to Dickens chagrin and the lack of copyright laws, he never got any royalities from).     No, he didn't cash in on its success sadly, nor has his ancestors cashed in on the 13 full-featured movies, the 17 made for tv movies that I know about, nor even the Mr. Magoo version.  The story took on a life of its own.  It was a blockbuster, and he never was really able to monetize it like he would have wished.  He did monetize it some, though, for the rest of his last he would perform public readings of A Christmas Carol and some of those had over 2000 people in attendance.  Apparently, Dickens was as good of a performer as he was a writer- maybe better- and he could do all the different voices of the different characters.  People loved it- I imagine something- Jim Carey style.     Oh- I bet a Jim Carey reading of A Christmas Carol would be hilarious.      I agree!  Maybe someone will forward this podcast to him and he'll get the idea to do it!  Anyway, back to the book- it is a carol- in more than just the ironic sense of the world.  It was designed to do the exact sort of thing carols are supposed to do- bring a certain idea to Christmas- and that is the idea of redemption.  It's an idea that is lost on adults- for many of us, life, myself included, life takes turns we didn't mean for it to take.  In some cases, it feels like redemption is impossible that it's dead- and that of course is Dickens starting point- but even if redemption is dead- does that mean it's lost- or is it possible- no matter who we are- how far gone we are- redemption is still a ghost- shall we read the introduction?  let's read the words Dickens chose to include as the preface to this book:  I have endeavoured in this Ghostly little book, to raise the Ghost of an Idea, which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me. May it haunt their houses pleasantly, and no one wish to lay it.  Their faithful Friend and Servant,  D. December,1843  I think it's interesting to include the preface for a couple of reasons- First of all,   In the preface he capitalized the word Ghosts.  He also alliterated haunted with houses and it even connects with the h word humor in the sentence above.  There is something that he wants to haunt us with- a dark side of Christmas perhaps- a dark side in ourselves perhaps.      And yet- this book wouldn't be a classic if it were preachy- moralistic tales are annoying and unfun to read- even if I agree with every moral in the story.  I saw somewhere that Virginia Wolf couldn't stand Dickens for several reasons but one of which was that he made her feel like she was supposed to take out a checkbook when she read him.       HA!  Dickens might not have found that insulting- but I get it- and in his other books, I do think maybe that is a fair criticism- but A Christmas Carol, even as a ghost story, when you read it isn't dark like that.  Dickens goes to a lot of trouble to make it funny- something that sometimes is lost when people perform it on stage and it the movies, but is really evident when you read the story out loud.  I really think if I had read it before I had watched the movie as a child, I wouldn't have been frightened by the ghosts.    Let's read the first page of Stave one and you'll see what I mean.      Read page 1  So, we must first talk about the narrative voice- for me, it's what takes the edge off the ghost in the ghost story.  The tone is cheerful and fun.  There is an omniscient narrator and we will see that he very much can see inside Scrooge's thoughts, but he's intrusive.  That means he injects himself personally into the text and in this case, addresses us in the second person as if he were in the room talking to us.  In fact in Stave two the narrator actually tells us that the ghost of Christmas past was as close to Scrooge and I quote, “as close to it as I am now to you, and I am standing in the spirit at your elbow.”  Of course, it's funny and takes the edge of the scariness of it- of course the narrator isn't at our elbow and so of course, we need not be afraid of Scrooge's ghost.    Well, the narrator says several funny things right at the beginning here- this big about door-nails's being the “deadest piece of ironmongery” – it's pointing out the ridiculous in something we are very used to- the same kind of thing Jerry Seinfeld made famous in his comedy.    Exactly, and it has the same effect here- we are left smiling- why do we say, “dead as a doornail” except for the fact that it alliterates, there's no point in it at all.  And so we are detached from all of the death of marley talk.  If the narrator who clearly knows Marley isn't sad that he's dead, then we shouldn't be sad either.  We immediately trust this narrator because he's funny, and our first act after buying into the story is to decide we don't care that Marley's dead.  We also then buy into his description of Scrooge- which is also funny.  “He was a tight-fisted hand at the grindstone, Scroogr! A squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner! Hard and sharp as flint, from which no steel had ever struck out generous fire; secret and self-contained, and solitary as an oyster- again a funny comparison.  The cold within him froze his old features, nipped his pointed nose, shrivelled his cheek, stiffened his gail, made his eyes red, his thin lips blue, and spoke out shrewedly in his grating voice.  A frosty rime was on his head, and on his eyebrows, and his wire chin.  He carried his own low temperature always about with him, he iced his office in the dog-days, and din't thaw it one degree at Christmas.  Then he goes on to say Scrooge's fire was so small, but he kept his clerk's first even smaller that it only had one piece of coal.  He also says that Scrooge is so stingy that he keeps the coal in a his own room under a lock and a key.  That's crazy.  Scrooge is crazy.  In fact, Scrooge is such an awful person that even the blind men's dogs knew him and when they saw him coming, they tugged their blind owners to go a different direction.    Man- this guy is terrible.      Exactly, he's portrayed as ugly, mean, cold and stingy but he seems to be hurting no one but himself.      Well, and the poor clerk that works for him.  True.  Scrooge is a disaster but doesn't realize it.  But he's also kind of funny himself.  When his nephew comes over to invite him to dinner we have a funny exchange.   Let's read this.  Page 5  Again, Dickens goes to a lot of effort to make all of this kind of funny.  And of course, this is very important.  We can't hate Scrooge, if we hate him, then there would be no pleasure in his redemption.  He's not an evil person.  He's a lost person, and as I said and I want to go back to this idea- redemption is the point- the entire point of Christmas really- and the point of this story.  And Dickens gives it this away in the first line as well.  The way Dickens writes his first sentence is grammatically incorrect.  Marley was dead colon to begin with.  That's not now we use colons.  In some versions, and I think maybe the first version, there was a period after dead- making to begin with a rhetorical fragment.  But either way the punctuation tells a story.  And of course, as every English teacher will tell you- in the English language- punctuation is always rhetorical- it always is there to deliver meaning- to show us where ideas stop and start, which ones are connected more significantly to each other- and what is the emphasis of any set of words.  And what is the punctuation doing here- it is forcing us to stop before and after the words – to begin with-  This is a story of beginnings- it is a story of death- we must clearly understand that- but death is not final- it is a story of beginnings.   Of course, that's another reason to write the story as a carol.    Exactly, expand on that thought.  Garry is a musician, and although Dickens was NOT a musician, he did love music and writing the story in staves is not just a clever take on calling the story a carol, but it adds another layer of meaning.  Garry, explain to us what exactly a stave is.      Well, to be honest, a stave isn't exactly the right word musically for a division.  Divisions in music are called verses- a stave is another word for staff.  And the staff is where the music is written.  It's the five parallel horizontal lines that with the clef indicate the pitch of the musical notes.  Also, another important point musically is that the musical notation allows the music to be played on any instrument.  If I can read the music, I can play a song on a guitar, or on the piano or on the violin.      Yes, and so look at the many layers of the metaphor here.  There are five chapters in this book- each called a stave- each stave in our story also has a very different pitch.  If we understand the story, it can be applied to many generations, to many social classes, to many types of people of many cultures.  But, I think there is another interesting idea, at least for me, although we could mine this metaphor for a lot of different things, is that songs are cyclical as well as universal.  Songs are contain loops- like the famous wham song,  How many times do we have to hear, “Late Christmas, I gave you my heart but the very next day, you gave it away”.  Scrooge will get visited by four ghosts- his life will get repeated by each ghost as he goes back and revisits it.  But more importantly, time is meaningless in this story- just as time is meaningless in a song.  Songs are not chronological even if wham loses his love every single stanza- and in fact every single Christmas season all season long.    Time is so central to understanding this book- as it's about endings and beginnings= as it's about childhood and innocence, as it's about starting over and redemption.    Maybe that's why it's impossible to hate Scrooge- he's gotten lost which isn't the same as evil- he's a man of anxiety which we'll talk about next episode- but we can all get lost- we all can be obsessive and anxious-   Exactly, and in that sense there is a little scrooge in all of us-but on the flip side- no one is as crazy as Scrooge- he's the worst case scenario- and what Dickens story points out that hopefully, there is a little of Scrooge's nephew in us too- we can still smile at the cranks of the world.  We  hopefully we have a bit of Bob Cratchet, that's the poor clerk with the on solitary piece of coal- at least Dickens will encourage us to be like the Cratchetts later in the story.  But more importantly than those two male characters, Dickens is going to emphasize and re-emphasize that Christmas is a time where we have to remember there is a child still in each one of us as well.  Next episode, we will start by meeting the ghost of Christmas past, we'll meet Scrooge as a child and we'll meet the array of children that populate this book.  Again, a strong sense of cyclical timelessness.    Paul Davis, in his book “The Lives and Times of Ebenezer Scrooge” quotes another Victorian writer who was a contemporary of Charles Dickens- Theodore Watts-Dunton.  In his book he quotes a story Dunton would tell- who knows how true it is, but it's a cute story.  According to Dunton he was walking down Drury Lane near Covent Garden Market on June 9th on the year of Dickens death and he overheard a Cockney barrow-girl's reaction to the news of the great novelist's death: ‘Dickens dead? Then will Father Christmas die too?'”     That's such a cute quote- and of course, Dickens would like to say, of course not, “I'm standing in the spirit at your elbow” every time you read A Christmas Carol.
