Distort your weekend rights and now Gloria weigh in on double BYOK. Good morning good morning. Nice to have you back ms. can thank you very much and I am back we I tell you happy to be back really. He has so you know I love to go yeah I don't like to Gao I'd come home body now really mean I'd prefer. I'm managing vacation person you know I guess I'm mostly a stage like to stay close but I like day trips or weekend that kind of car you know me in my eight. Airplane stuff. So that yeah so I kind of but it was it was and I needed to do so. I was really. Need a break from everything so it was really nice to go in that and then. Continued but it's always nice to come home it's so nice I couldn't wait to see my house when I pulled up and I just just a big smile on her in my face I happy to be home sleeping in my own bed and I know our surroundings yeah. I love it so here we are just got in last night as we of course take on Thursday. Yeah I got home on Wednesday night and we had a jammed packed three days coming NN. I'm because rumors we drove. As I said last week and that was great but I tell you have to hit it that he hears you this is something you need to understood you need you'll love this story. And maybe I told as I told the Ice-T did Duncan Donna nice tees stories. That from your trip yeah now yeah. So you known Duncan iron closely put a link to that the that I get might follow have to have ice yes you did did I say on radio now but tell guys can still. From I only to say Virginia tire issue lower Virginia on down. The prices kept getting less and less in Virginia we stopped. To get a nice tee and I always get my large and Sweden and it was a dollar thirty. And I said is there a sailor's his son specialist sometimes we. He goes what do you mean I sit well aware of Scranton Pennsylvania an hour large ice teas are two dollars and 43 cents things like why is. And I said. Question censured the same company. Why and I get this happens I'm not saying it doesn't it that's a blatant we are being ripped off here should seriously two dollars and 43 cents for a large Ice-T in Strasburg it's a couple Dallas couple cents more. We're IE yes maybe fifteen or something now and when you got into Florida in Jupiter now let's face it you know we're not talking. And wealth is important it is is abundant down there OK one dollar and six cents a cut all the time and no special it is what they charged the same cop at the same windy. The same everything so why does it cost two dollars and 43 cents. In our neck of the woods and it cost and 99 cents in in Munich in them. In the so why I don't know I know they're big on T I mean what I really what is that well I think just so franchisee. So I'm cases there's company owned stores and then there's franchise own source. And those that are that are owned by its franchisees. They have some leeway in all according they do is getting away with it but the point is. Why really we know there is some time and how much his tee and how much is water current well really the other thing constant the most is the cup right. So I mean I op I'll still got you know I have stock in Dunkin' Donuts so I feel like I have been some ownership here I can say this kid it. It it is it is. Is it it just I just think to myself what Walt. Well I mean really very and that's it two dollars I'm not I don't mean I'm gonna buy a man sixteen I don't care but just it's just amazing when you see that. Cost difference. Smaller end costs here. Are higher high here and then it costs we did dinner in Washington DC the other night I am telling you oh. For everything we had and just some of the things it's amazing how much the food costs are so different so much more here than they are and other places are anti Europe anti in the DC was high no. We're very expense exactly in Philadelphia I had dinner Nellie and I pay more in Scranton sometimes. For dinners I it's it's it's it's I just really watch it and I you know you see it people have said for average that the cost of food nasseria is. Really is how I. So I never paid attention because they just do you know you do each. But it when you go oh and now I'm in all these different states which is an IDC now is in a good thing because now I'm reporting I hope that's tough but it's just it's it's amazing parent and you can see it is it and it just bite and a concise what I tell you I've been an every rest area from the whole East Coast. You can tell is there any but even the difference in states in how they maintain their rest areas. Some of them are shiny with beautiful tie ill and then that further south you go likes the noise so what is the South Carolina they work clean. But is old is old. Can these things were like. Dick decrepit it win. And then you went from one tour so you can see in the states the difference and so we need to observe that kind of like. Infrastructure if you well love how these things are and how they run. Nothing on your way back to CEO what you intended sit well I'm no winner and stay in Savannah but yeah 'cause we realized I didn't I didn't realize and I some should have checked before. I thought it was only a six hour ride from there to where we were going. And it was more than nine almost nine hours from Savannah to Washington to someone we realized the day before that there was no way. We were gonna have the time to spend in Savannah. We just we spent the night little bit outside and we need to go we could even go because we had to get on the road and get to Washington because we are meeting Shonn. And so the whole day of Myers birthday sheik he spent. I don't ten riding. It the car to Washington DC and finally at 8 o'clock we pulled into the restaurant and five minutes to it to the veto today it right to the restaurant at five minutes to aid because I see China make their reservation later because it was supposed to be 630 gold we needed the extra time. So we did and it was great and we had a great time and so that it all worked out but. You know and then we drove from mayor we went to Leesburg. Virginia and we stayed there because there were no. There's no room with the in anywhere in the area so we just went out a little further and then we left from there and drove to. Myers friend's house and I'm Harrisburg I'm Dave scholar and his wife Phyllis and they were wonderful we had a nice dinner with them and then we drove home so it was. An experience to say because I've never been in a car about long ever. I don't think guys I have either and I don't know that I would ever want to do that. I did not but it at other than the fact that you're trapped. And you can't do we're going anywhere other than she did and I don't like that but it was kind of a neat thing because it was so contrary to what how I live my days yeah you know being sitting in my actually being right next. Mired for about long. Trip or just never that's now I'm always and Ernie is how we get here get your butt auction and that's so so that kind of confinement was a little bizarre for me I wish could I I liked it. I was so you see about it. Oh that's good and produce. And the first time and I'm it's Saturday that we went down to 700 miles before we went we do not a week it was cold freezing in Scranton. For the 700 miles before the temperature changed to 43 degrees there. 700 miles. That's how yucky at last the whole state of Virginia snow the whole way. I think think I said it would ask it was wild. Just to see the difference in and how far down it took to get warmer. And then once you got to Florida he's a day had some issues with the place. A very nice days yet there was something there were some things they should've. They had fixed now because yeah there last year we loved it. And there was some decent things they didn't do that they should've and so of course I was on it but. The blues I think my are literally had to fix that you know these could this line in the screen though he literally took one out of somewhere else and had to fix it himself out on the one night. So let's do some work now but it was sweet thank god you're with somebody who could prevent exactly yeah. But we had a good time that and I. I am. Of course we never staying in math plays and that they did we like the development just never enough same Condo bankers are just things they should have done and why aren't enough IE you know for what you pay for you should get what it's supposed to be but what would your other choice they. They have a whole development days it's just that particular unit. And I go somewhere else okay south anyway danced for other properties so that we've been dealt a did you venture out. I did I did I don't like gets really but I did. What will be you don't like it was on the coin of why human goalie has put its theory when you're not used to constantly being clock when you are constantly plugged into everything yes very hard to. Nappy plugged in so I mean I didn't I think I'd do a good job but. Com we'll have to check in with my irons it. Elliott I think you'll agree. Well they're talking to my buddy I'll do Rhonda yes and anger is OK tell Meyer he's had in the eat he's had you've for two weeks back to us now that's it telling Alvarez said OK that's. Well amaze you feel good too that I love it yeah. And I am sure yes it comes to miss was almost two weeks until halftime two for you have an illegal I'm Tanya. So happy to be that any EPA. I'm happy to be bad or good. And we are what is the other thing is it in it when you go somewhere else to make you feel so fortunate to be. And where your from. But gaming appreciate I'm wearing a good feel for ESP NIC and just feel it appreciate good I feel fortunate to live here and to be part of this community because when you go places and it's all nice you know but it's deep connections that you have and you forging you make and and the thank you just think about how cool I konduz like brutal I know. So it's. You know when you work as long as you do to forge relationships. There are bare handed it means a lot so that they're childhood. It's a good other than a cost of the Ice-T where she and a thorough and their. Friends then waited missed two months. I mean there. There wasn't a whole lot going on except. To our friend does. Sheik Omar and I guess was a true rivals and crazy things going on here that her specifically about the school board in general. Because there was just a lot that was happening in. And the usual nonsense with cage Gebhardt kind daddy I guess who's saying. A new person on the board as well. And see. To pack up rarely asked where something. And clarification on something and the guy who is C president. Bob lashed. Got up from left and hushed because he didn't think that. She needed to. Just an information when you he's not the president by Dixon so I mean you're talking about when he when he resigned and then came back I don't think does that add them. Tallahassee I don't know this I'm OK so he came back and I guess faith. At what I have to say to Chris Kelly from the Scranton times has some putting a lot of heat. On them and so. If he eventually got it to the point where. They. The school board. I was forced to come to a vote on whether or not they would release the information to him. And apparently. Mr. election not think that was appropriate. And paid I think introduced. The motion to allow that to happen and he gets so angry he had not been laughed and told her to. Literally. This is in the press blown out or asked. Lovely book I noticed it in the paper I was reading the paper last night here because there was I have on my list it was there idea read the most current. Before I went to bed and it and in one of the letters to the editor I noticed it said something about using this I forget who was. I do now hole was about Alan Hughes I think so yeah I think about which I'm. The language although I I didn't know what he meant because I didn't read the story northern Alaska while Wendy you know. Now I'm sure it's done. It broke precedent with the Scranton times because they've never published. They're kind of they would cause vulgarity. But since it was out there and in a public meeting. They decided that there are gonna print exactly what he said. And so you know it goes on and it's just a wonderful and. We keep doing and away it just doesn't. Yes I did every Chris Kelly's article said yesterday I don't think gee I'm. The mechanic. And they own. Yeah all of that how much money was spent in an if you have too funny cars it would mean you spent so many hurting so much money per year if that what I that's what I read yesterday it's all that again I mean that that there's so much skip Parker say and that's. And the that that it's so strict and I read it doesn't price of nice tees if he ever made a point has been sweet man. I did so many things so that all the final line is you didn't miss the damn thing yeah. So anyway on them. I would take a quick break yes he should and we'll be right to ask you listen Millar and lynch show. Here Gloria and win. Good morning we're back good morning. My name is Linda Evans I am the managing director of the company called women of substance LLC. It's designed specifically for the financial. Illiteracy. Baby boomer women and I'm also big T hosts of a podcast. Called power of the purse. That's available on iTunes stitcher and who will play. And I large cat and the owner Larry can enterprises which is a fundraising PR and special event business. Fan in the thick of things to talk about it today. Capped by most current. I'm atheist I'm page of the bulletin. Alan bulletin the gas and. No would you see says something mean lasts only McCarthy I got mine with Tehran and I I magazine I have not too. Don't like I had my glasses and brought it with me last when I had was from February. I don't know why I'm not Kenny name wherever I'm not so. C and I just I guess now on periodically. Yeah I don't think that regularly on this one I don't know how often this is pregnant but I realized I am and has the magazine in quite some time. And anyway from. There are a couple of things end. The bulletin. And I wanted to. Talk because I thought it was very interesting. But one thing they talked about the economy in the news. Is over and lifts are disrupting the ambulance usage. You know a lot of people in their Medicare programs are whenever it is and even its standard. Insurance. If you use an ambulance to take two from your home to the emergency room someplace or to a hospital whenever this. The cost is really high and right a lot of cases half covered not covered or it's like harsh dollars and then that's it ranked. So what people are now doing. Is calling over and list want to take them from their house to the emergency room. To the hospitals. And at that that's not okay because the liability exposure for the drivers is huge. But he got somebody you can breeds that well NIC bleeding and send it to that's like event here yeah. Can't do that day that people did that yes this because a student loans yes and that's why they don't have. And it's immediate you know they don't don't have sirens another silliness going on so many now worry about it. But the somebody came up with this idea which I think is really a great idea. What they said has said they've hired though this is for lift ban necessarily for rumor and this could be happening there as well but I don't know that. But they decided that they wouldn't. Create. A system where they have a triage nurse. Who when you call in and they will be the one that decides whether or not you can use a lift driver or whether you need to call 911. So they have a paramedic person on staff. And when you call and say you're going to hospital. That's where you your destination as they get on the phone and talk to you on screen you. Which makes sense because if that's the case except that you wasting time into some well yeah maybe I mean I you know. I don't know quite exactly how works. If it's not an emergency a lift drivers called. And then it automatically connects and has some emergency systems that it's designed to be helpful and they take that into account but I just. I don't know anybody than ever do that than ever come lifter over just to get them. But I suppose. So where works announced soon. I get I guess the thought yes it's just you know or someone may be breaks and armed they figure what if you know they know their arms broken they figure I can get tipped. You know they mean instead the demo why would you just tried. Well maybe because it's the right hander now I need to figure now I mean if you're alone obviously but yeah somebody with you would just take yeah yeah I get it. Well yes I thought it was interesting because I never even thought about that. It's really weird. And then that's the whole theme of this buses Medicare fraud and how. Rampant it is a cause of the assume this number is something like 700 some. Billion dollars last year from Medicare just a function. It was 591. Billion dollars last year in 2017. That's what it cost from I don't care how much two putts from 591. Billions. And sixty billion. Was lost to fraud not a huge number. That's more than 10%. But Friday and in how well we've just that's but the rest of the story now. They're doing with the numbers. Because they when they nail these people they textiles and this is a layer now why it's not ask. There are some OK yeah so so like why what do they do well well they they do what they call a charges where are you going to have a procedure done there may be down Yemeni grown toenail. And they tell you OK I ND a deal for sine I was thinking I don't know why I was thinking the consumer was but it's the end it's that it's the ops the defense that the medical profession and to some degree help but then there was enough I was started looking a citizen looking and I said yeah I know but that I know about that but this one. I never unbowed. And this does fare tickets to think. So you have to really watch this but you can see how it's a perfect. Set up for somebody do this. Life in Washington DC. Homeless shelter is grandma under the best of circumstances. First federal undercover agent looking to expose a network of recruiters. Those whose solicit personal Medicare and Medicaid information. From a shelter residents. To create phony medical bills. Is it presents unique challenges. Randall a suit on them that was pretty funny my friend Randi. Randall a suit and emphasis ozone name is Randolph but god dammit I don't we call on Randall anyway again. He is nice it was special agent with the Office of Inspector General. Who's still must protect his true identity so early prepared for undercover role. He grew his hair out. Let's stumble covers face and deny paid for several days towns like Patrick finished. I have. I criticized the bugs should I guess but it was a mental preparation their proved key. He drew and time spent growing up in an African American neighborhood in DC. He modeled themselves and kids he knew Lloyd lived close to the end it's. That held them that gave him credibility inside the shelter. I had to be able to establish report with these guys talked the talk straight guys gain their trust he says he memorize details are fake identity. Names Social Security number address and date of birth keep visualize themselves in tough situations and work out how to conduct himself. Once it was fully prepared Randall approached one of Washington's large shelters for the homeless. It smelled of urine filthy clothes and body odor men shuffled outside the entrance drinking and smoking. The mentally ill talk to themselves. Randall let it be known that he was looking to make money within minutes. A recruiter approached them. The scheme he was wanting to expose is simple but it results in annual losses to Medicare Medicaid. That amount to hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars. Recruiters and list shake patients. To get approved first services by doctors. Who may or may not be in on the scheme. The phony patient is paid a small amount. To sign off on falsified documents. Showing expensive care that had never been delivered. The homeless person may also sign off on time sheets. From phantom visits from health care aides to nonexistent. Residences. Homeless shelters are fertile ground for recruiters involved in this time for fraud the one who approach Randall was running a Medicaid scam. Prince was quickly taken into the scam though wasn't always easy one time in the car with a recruiter demand suddenly asked are you cop. And Randall's heart stopped. He messed up. Carelessly slipped out of character no ways and I hate to can't stand. The recruiter last Brandon could breathe again after nearly a year under cover his investigation which include secret audio and videotape. A his transactions. Yield as enough evidence to convict nineteen. Recruiters. And health care aides a fraud. When this sort of case goes to trial that is often where the crux finally learn Randall's true identity. Guys wilt when they see the undercover agent in the courtrooms and Randall supervisor. No women. Isn't doesn't think it's a tough contempt doctor's signature sign up for today's forged his signature group think getting these forms. I'm well those forms are apparently are those that you would sign up when you go into. 90 my goodness yes you know you get that thing there yeah without. Well that's what they would do they would get those and they would take him to these guys and set them up and then. They would assume that the doctors had seen them or the recruiter could be that person. And eat because he has a fake identity so he would go and see the doctor the doctor would either be in on it or not. And just file and under Medicare because he's got all the guys the fake identity from this guy he's stolen identities from. He's got his manager cars a military recruiter goes in and says they are but I'm wouldn't be. How they get the picture of some of someone else I don't understand that. Others I'm sure they have our gas also succumbed I am gone but it that's why I'm saying these are things that you don't even know that you can. Play literally you know you mean EE I don't even at these people think these things through and figure out ways to do it another was a guy that yeah. But in clarks summit. Co had a shoe store. And he only sold a sues to people who. Or diabetics. Because they had ever certain kind of in Seoul because of the pain have been around an honest yes yes. So he had nailed for 600000. Dollars. Because he was doing man and falsifying their records and sending in Medicare reimbursements for Susie never sold. You know most eye ear and out of that stuff so yeah and that's why I'm saying there aren't there are ways that people do this that. We're not even aware of and then it's people like that when they do these undercover things. That they find. The schemes. That people have figured out and it's really scary because that's what makes our Medicare. Premiums go up as much as we go yuck yeah I don't doubt. It's a pig in you know until Lyn it's just anything else people figure out ways to kid. Rick Foster system and all kinds of era I say no that's it that's the way I've seen and especially in the financial planning world. That no one time when one person screws up like a Bernie Madoff where it's that big everybody knows about it. Then they put enforce all these rules and regulations. To prevent that. But the the people who are doing it honestly and legitimately. Now have additional paperwork as well know what zoo. And it's been a game like this words and that he came of escalation. They find a problem they think they've got a solution than somebody finds a way around that then it gets exposed and we have. More escalation then it goes from bad to something else so it's continuously. After the at the saying is something about closing the barn door after the horse is out. That's kind of what it is you know is say if you are not solving anything because the people who are legitimate. Well do what they're gonna do anyway because they're ethical but the ones who aren't ethical make it's so hard for everybody else. Because they're not there when it the way they said. So I I think this is one of those things that the Medicare. And you think of all the paperwork doctors' offices have to go through. At this point and the more you have people like that plume and a propagate fraud and the more than paperwork is gonna happen. And that's just kind of how it is. Can't sit Oksana. And I hate painful to so I'm not I can't stand the tea. Anyway I well we are going to take a fast break we hear in listening to Larry and show and we shall be right back. Here Florian wins. Welcome back everybody you're listening to Larry and Lynn shell I'm Laurie can numb the owner of lard can enterprises which is a fundraising PR and special event business and she's banner and that's a that she. Hey and I am whenever. And I am the managing director of found a company called women of substance LLC which is. For. Financial planning firm specifically for the needs of baby boomer women and I am also the host to the podcast. Called power of the purse available on iTunes to turn Google play. Yes mam and I told you about the AARP bulletin yes. I didn't know best but the woman who is currently the CEO of AARP. A woman named Joann Jenkins I'm. I love her she's on the commercials yeah a lot of eyes lovers you makes you wanna like hunger is something I slice this great is that she's really nice persons that comes through when you say yes. Six is another look at our great personality. Well I'm sure road book. I know that. And all the name of the book is. Disrupts aging a bold new pastor to living your best life at every age. And she wrote that book two years ago because what she wanted to do was as she said changed the conversation about what it means. To grow older. And I know I heard so much about it and also I've I've realized the AARP even though we know what it stands for they don't really want you to use that right there right. Yeah has it. People are usually retired who are. Exact part of that so cynically call RI AAR PI Connor and what he lived was she how long is she Ben I don't know how. T know how old she is I do I want to say she's in relations says that's an amien. Joseph and Jenkins Penn. Co had Cuba what I saw was really and. Your thing about it is it just now came on paperbacks so she's talking about that as well and that's see them the Genesis of this. Article that she wrote it as C. That it's a column I guess she does every month it's called where we stand. And so she was talking about. That the issue of how this culture sees aging. And she says. Excuse me it's gratifying to see shifts in attitudes. Behaviors and culture. As more people throughout the world are challenging outdated attitudes and stereotypes. And sparking new solutions. That recognized the potential historic benefits of living longer. Where leaders once slid to the growing aging population and saw only retirees. To your point. They are now I'm beginning to see a new type of experienced accomplished workforce. Where they once saw only expensive costs. They are now beginning to see an exploding consumer market. That is bolstering our economies. And more than once saw only a growing pool of dependents. They are now beginning to see intergenerational. Communities with new and different strengths. Always have to do is look around us to see what is happening advances in research and technology. Are driving innovation in virtually every field of endeavor that affects our ability to live well as we age. I think that's the most important. Distinction. As the assumption most people have that once you hit 65. Your health declined to the point. Where all is it is is about taking care of your health. Rather than. Looking at life. As. A place for your living jury what else because you're healthy. We never associate healthy when facing we mostly associate. Aging with. But I'm what you think the one that is well because that's what we saw. Well it's also what's promoting anti and a man isn't everywhere else it's all about this and then you don't have these doctor's appointment every day and mean. That's why I guess Kennedy all health care it's everything about that and in our region it's worse because there are. So many learned its entire entire nation of glove at the age of fifty shots and have a she's the first female sea island's AARP two yes cause it's not telling me. I'll Google the other part. It's it's just saying. To Wikipedia just never age so I'm trying. And in my but the truth this was something yes I was really neat that she said about two pan. She says societies around the world are coming up with creative. Common sense ways of adapting to the challenges posed by aging populations. And doing it with existing resources. One example is Japan's watch over service. First small monthly C a Japanese postal carrier will check I don't older residents along the mail delivery route moment. And relaying information about the residents' wellbeing to family members using a tablet. The brilliance of this model is that it takes an existing infrastructure resource. A nationwide postal delivery network. And is seemingly unconnected challenge. Isolated seniors. And put some together it works at a cost is low the barriers to entry are fuel and the payoff is huge up. I think we need to be doing more that kind of stuff and there's another article in here about. Grandparents and the and people who live so called retired. Reaching out to. Children and grandchildren. Especially teenagers. And this is written by a woman who's a writer for AARP. And then there articles about older adults are stepping up for teenagers in need. It's a quiet crisis that most Americans rarely think about thousands of teenagers are living without parents. Every year about 20000 of these teens become tools for Foster care. And are released. Turn to lose without the stability of a permanent family. Their future chances aren't bright. And one assessment by the National Council For Adoption. Nearly 40%. Of those former Foster children had spent some time has spent some time homeless. 60% of the young men have been convicted of a crime and only 48% were employed. But there's hope for a growing number of Foster care teenagers many older people and their empty nest years. You are standing up to take him to take a minute even adopt some VM I'll bet. Which are considered tool by others that kids and some child advocacy groups. Are targeting teenagers for special help before they are released from state chair. And someone that we both know who did something like that and I feel. My gosh what what a gift it was easy task I don't know what. Adopt is a young woman whom we've talked about it before his ankle was a teenager. And actually got her through college. And got her to the point where she did need an act college I'm sorry high school high school and then she never had any aspirations to go to college. But either worked with her and got her. Into several Kyle accepted by several colleges and she actually went to one. And graduate and I think it's Susquehanna that they do when the Susquehanna University of Pennsylvania. Graduated with a four year degree and is now out on her own for the job times. And now it's remarkable in this is just a wonderful thing when you think about when I guess that is is today and she was the woman didn't. Now Scranton high yes and she lived in a very very difficult home. Actually adopt it hasn't literally passer as she lived with her. And when. I don't know I think that's wonderful and it is wonderful and I just what I read hell yes kind of in fact sheet you know like I'm. Two with looking to be able to look up to someone might like. And else is great it's it's a wonderful thing and if so I say that because that's something that a lot of and retired people are now looking at doing that because they're children are gone and I know or maybe they're the grandchildren. Aren't anywhere near them and they they would really love to have that. Relationship with younger people but they don't think about Foster care and then adopting some of these children given them home gym and instability. I remember Patrick saying to me couple times that we would go down and visit his stepmother. Who lives in one of those over 55 communities in Florida. And he always said to me I cannot stand to live in a place like this don't ever ever. Get me into a place like this I said why he says. Because it's so warped I say what you mean he said there are no families here and there are no kids there's no. No influx of new ideas and new people in new kids insult people that he silverlight in God's waiting room. Well well they aren't vitality is sort of what I say is I understand that and there are now plenty of communities. That are. Just sprouting up everywhere. Where they don't have that over 55 thing anymore. They've actually considered that's be discriminatory earned her. So they're now allowing younger families and it was children and on different days the command because they're recognizing. That's for older people to be around younger people. Is emotionally and psychologically. A better thing yeah. Well also those people in that type of environment becomes their own family too though man yeah they do they really deal and end your right there's not a lot but there's all different ages anymore when us in assisted living in all those things and they become. Maybe you know you learn. Stories and a friend minus tummy so many stories about friendships they've formed since they're living in this facility damage it's neat and I said to them it's like your feeling they said he had eggs exactly you've become so close to the manual learning you're learning about what their lives are like and I am. The interesting thing to me is that so many people if we stop and take the time to listen to older people. Talk TU about what their experiences were what used to be York anything you learned so much from them and it. It's just wonderful to be able to tap into that and the same thing with Litsch Bethea learned. With age and because they're young they're listening to young people tell is so important to have bad but I site great. But yeah that's just environments but it's also nice to be a mentor to kids tells me and that's that it's a real gas. So it that's nice I agree with him I think there this is having communities were that's all it's Erik if you miss all this other piece. And it's very stimulating emotionally and. It's there's a million people should do more like girl scout boy scout troops and young lake high schools clubs should should make it a point of being engaged with these older. Communities and bring the kids there and even those pens pen pals that divine action yes still does she have you know those those are important and then you meet and those wonderful things to to learn from each other. And they are wonderful programs the that does that. Yeah which I think is fan and I think some of boys club and girls club has an intergenerational program as well. I don't where they could they take the kids twos some of these nursing homes kind and they say no with. The people like him served a personal relationships with these think both wonderful and one other thing I watched they're quick and I was in Florida one of the show I forget what I I don't know if it was like I can't remember. If it was CBS Sunday morning or what it was but I watched where these this museum. Or this I'm daycare. From poor people do is specifically for alzheimer's was bringing it. And all these things that made them remember laying. Stock cops and oh yeah cars they have all of these. Rooms with in the daycare is just during the day but it stimulates. Their memory and they feel alive and part of it and that I think this is just such a neat way. I'm making sure for that particular snubbed of course it was that type of it was dementia and alzheimer's but those things are important for anything is bringing bad. Thought of what you were what you did in bringing them back those memories are so important mice. I think that's fine for meets. Oh Lorena at this well let me I meant yeah but really that station and serious accent yeah Nelson the SEI and not having. I was playing Lebanon as we want to listen to our. I now. It's a good thing he said to me when because I know all the words of the songs he said she did your mother about a lot human classes and telling him memorize every song my knack to the sixties but some men to sixties like I don't remember I don't even know how since I was. Only born in 1980 I don't really I didn't Obey a very revelation six. 61 to be exact but any way we're going to leave that note thanks for listening everybody have a great.
