And I developed a Facebook group called rewrite your story, where people from all over the world can share their stories with support and no judgement, where they’re only the support. We have meetup groups once a month. I interview great people. It’s a great community. So come on board, rewrite your story, and I’m excited to answer these questions. Oh, so this way.

That was an awesome podcast, we I actually learned quite a bit of all the new stuff that’s out now. It’s incredible. And there she is Athanasia. Did I say it quick it enough?. I can never get it right.
You mixed two names, actually. My name is Nasia and I’ll see where I’m from. I’m originally from Greece. I am a road safety advocator. I have experience the unfortunate event of a horrific accident that happened in the blink of an eye as Tina mentioned. So this is his this has become my mission to raise road safety awareness and help maybe people or inspire and motivate people not to experience and not to make my story, their story. And I am also the host of a podcast called crash victim, life survivor. And I had fun sharing my story with Tina on her podcast and it’s very nice to be here. And I can’t wait to listen to the questions. So exciting.
It is exciting. And Bobby Hi. Well, I’m Bobby Hedglin-Taylor and I’m coming to you from Brooklyn, New York. Yo, Brooklyn. Brooklyn in the house. Yeah. I’m by trade. Former trapeze artist. I designed aerial sequences for Broadway shows, cruise ships, rock concerts, but I’m also a two time author and Tina, our podcast was my very first podcast as an author. So it was really special to me and I just published my first book on Wednesday, and it’s called ship my mama says. And basically it is it’s a humorous look at life while dealing with dementia. And losing my mom to COVID in the pandemic sort of sparked me to write because there nobody has trapezes in their living rooms. Well, I’m, I mean, I know about you, Tina, but there’s, but so when when pandemic hit, I just changed my my art and I started writing and I wrote a cookbook, which is a memoir called escape to reveal the mountain, a memoir and food. And then I wrote shit my mama says, with all my mother’s amazing, humorous quotes about life while she was dealing with dementia, and glad to be here.
And Bobby is a comedian as well. And he has some great great recipes, drinks and recipes. So yes, awesome. Yeah. And Betsy. Hi,
everybody. Thanks for having me. Tina. Excited. I’m from New Jersey. And I am I am chatting with Betsy. I’m passionate world talk radio network. And I am creator, founder of the Facebook group hashtag kick all timer, this movement. So I went from raising awareness of my car to interviewing people I just interviewed Hadassah Lieberman on Monday. I couldn’t believe it.
Do you know who she also this is like for all of us old people on the show. she interviewed sissy, Henry. No, remember stuffy and sassy
Bigger. Oh yeah, of course. I’m not. Yeah, I’m not that old either. I can’t remember at all. Reruns were rerun.
Um, so let’s get the party started. Guys, now that we have all of that work completed. So we are going to start with a funny question and I’ll I’ll just ask the question, and then I’ll ask someone to answer it. During the 18th century, it was common for a bride to sell something at her wedding reception to help pay for the cost of the wedding. What did she sell? Like you have an answer to that question.
She sold her underwear All right. It was just something special. I don’t know but make ends meet. Tell me what did she the What did the bride sell? I think she sold her soul. No, that could be Yes, absolutely. One more. Dr. Claire. What did she sell her chastity belt? That’s a good one. And Bobby, God only knows what you’re gonna say. I know what Paul’s answer was. So she’s told her firstborn. Put the gloves away. Tina. ology exam. Exactly. All right. Let’s go to a serious question. Does everyone familiar with the condo collapse that was recently happened in beautiful Surfside Florida. 97 victims of the Surfside collapse, where all the victims,
were they all supposed to be put together for that fate. We need that question of da da, da da da da da parte it was part of the question. So the question is, where are they? Where all the fix victims supposed to be put all together there at 1:22am to have their fate? Was that fate? Were they all supposed to be put there? No. You want to go first? Betsy, you say no.
Why do you say? i? I say no. Because I heard a story from one of the people that they word to somebody and her family was not supposed to be there. And they weren’t. But don’t remember their name. So not everybody was supposed to be there. If you believe the state, you know, yeah. Some people are meant to, to have been there. That was their time to go buy gas. Um, why does that people survive? and some don’t? Only God can answer that. I don’t have the answer to that. That’s cool. I feel that’s great. Laurie, what do you think?
It’s a tough one. But I would say I guess ultimately, we’re our days are numbered. And when time’s up, time’s up as tragic as it is.
Yeah, that’s an incredible tragedy. I I can’t even fathom for the people that didn’t survive, and I can’t fathom the ones that did because even they lost their homes in the end. So it’s incredible. What do you think, Paul?
What was the answer the first question. Was there an answer to that question? Like what what was the what was the bride sell? What was the actual answer to that question? Is it relatable?
Well, Bobby said it because that’s all Linton said. Oh, God. Okay. Yeah. They they said that they sold their their firstborn. Goddess. Okay, okay. Um, yeah, I mean, I’m fortunately it was time to go. I’m fairly but happens in such a tragedy? Yeah. What do you think, Linda?
There are those who would say yes. I’m not sure whether I would be that certain. I would suggest, though, that whenever something like this happens, it reminds us to treat every single day as precious to keep our relationships current. And to be a blessing while we’re here.
Absolutely. And I say to the condo collapse myself that if anyone was given five minute notice or evacuation notice for wildfires or anything like that, you’re blessed. Because all those victims weren’t given any notice. And, as well, you know, in a car accident, you know, to say, hold on, don’t hit me yet. I have five minutes I’ve been told before you hit me. So, yeah, I think we all are blessed. What do you think, Tim?
That’s a tough one. You know, I know from previous learning that the Angel of Death is appears around you for 30 days before you pass away. And I think it’s just you know, it was strange that all those people were together. I mean, is that fate? I don’t know. It’s it’s a very difficult question. I just feel terrible for everybody who was involved. And you know, safety first. That’s all I got to say. That’s, that’s my mantra.
Yeah, absolutely. I think they were signs and people just missed it. That’s my honest opinion. What do you think kind of safety? If I say it fast enough? I get it right.
You tell it’s fine. Just fine. who called me? Nasia if it’s easier, oh, well, being that being in a car accident myself and losing two friends that day. So we were in the same vehicle for people to Unfortunately, they didn’t survive. And two of us we did. I’m not sure if I can say if, if I believe in fate. But I do believe in being in the wrong place in the wrong moment. So I don’t know if I was in the backseat of the vehicle. I wouldn’t be here with you today. So I don’t know. It’s a tough question. I don’t think there’s an answer. But I will have to agree with Timothy about safety, safety comes first. And we need to be cautious, aware, and take all the measures we need to keep ourselves safe. Yes, right. Thank you. What do you think, Bobby?
Oh, it’s such a loaded question, too. There are some people who believe that you have a specific amount of time on this planet, and it’s, and sometimes when you’re clustered with other people at the same clock, you all go at the same time. That is of a totally different belief that I have, I believe you go when you go when you and, and and that’s, you know, that happens. Like, like, on anastassia that I said, I butcher it too. We’re just gonna call you Annie, okay. No. So I used to work in the basement of the South Tower of the World Trade Center. I was on my way to work on the day of the first bombing. And I forgot something and I had to turn around and go back. When I got into my apartment, they have phone rang, and my father was like, What the hell’s going on down there? And I was like, down where I’m on my way to work. And he’s like, no, they just bombed the World Trade Center. So someone was looking out for me. And someone, you know, made me turn around and do something. So I feel I do feel like there are I believe in angels, if that you know, as and I believe that there there is. I believe in an afterlife, the and I also but I also believe that our time is limited on the planet, so we should make every day count. And I do. I do think though, that personally. Sometimes your circumstances don’t match up with the clock. And sometimes you’re just in the wrong place at the wrong time. But also, there’s just too much metaphysically going on that I can’t explain. And I, in some ways, I do believe that it is. It is fate for some people, and you just happen to be in a cluster with other people at the same clock. And but you never know. I mean, we won’t know. And I won’t know until I’m dead, and then it’ll be impossible to get in touch with you to stay on, and you know, not three times on your wall.
And will you sing the song to? Yes.
Three times on the ceiling. Did I get everybody? Everybody answer? Yes, me? Not you. Okay.
Go for it. Well, I’m one of my hats is that I’m a United Methodist minister. And so as, as the Bible says, you know, we don’t know the time or the day, but I think it’s really interesting how, and I don’t know about you, but I don’t know if I want to know when my time is coming. But I just, it’s really interesting to me, I saw the interview with the young man who had was over at his girlfriend’s apartment, and he really wanted to go home to the condo and she talked him into pain and I. So I think that there’s a lot of mystery around us. I think that there’s so I think there’s a whole nother level of awareness around us and that we maybe can’t see. But I think too, that I believe in angels too. And I think that those who died, were comforted. And my husband died three years ago, y’all. He shows up all the time. He comes to me and dreams, he comes to me and songs and whatever, I’ll just say, oh, James, I wish you were here. I drove to Virginia. And by myself not too long ago, I said, Thank you, James. I wish you could be here while you’re while I’m making this drop by myself. All of a sudden, his playlist, his Apple playlist started playing on by radio. And it was like he was saying, Okay, here we are. I’m along for the ride. So I but I don’t mean to make light of this terrible tragedy and arm. But I think people are that those people were comforted. And my prayer is that those who survived, not just the families, but the people who actually survived it because I think about survivor guilt, and this is for peace for everybody.
Absolutely. And you know, I know one story that will get you is there was one gentleman that passed away as one of the victims of the 97. And he was with his brother, I’m sorry, his nephew. His nephew came over to sleep overnight. He was a had an ex had two children, a daughter and a son. He was coaching the baseball team for the sun. And it was raining out. And he said, Can I call this ex wife? They were in communication with each other. He said can I drop him off? Not tonight because it’s rainy. And her She said her first answer right out of her mouth was no bring them home. But we’re gonna I’m going to take them fishing tomorrow. It doesn’t matter. bring them home. So he dropped him off at home. And he went to the condo with his nephew and died. And it’s very, very interesting because she said that it was one word that made a difference. Yes or no. I find that incredible. absolutely incredible. And a piano said, Well, my nephew is over tonight. I’ll you know there’ll be some fun for the kids. She probably would have said yes.
He didn’t. He listened to her intuition. How many times do we have feelings like that? And we dismiss them? Absolutely.
Yeah, we do. So let’s go on to a funny one guys. Please. All right. A friend offers to give you a French 75 what would that be? questions please. Absolutely. A friend offers to give you a French 75 what would that Paul, what do you think of French? 75? Is French 75 red wine? Oh, that’s a cool answer. What is the 75 represent? The grape vineyard of 75? What do you think that See? A branch get? What do you think? Nasia
Oh my God, I don’t know. Well, when you when you ask the question, and because English is not my first language and I don’t understand everything about me French 75 my mind drifted and went to, you know, the tools that mechanics use the French key. said, okay, something like that. I don’t know. Yeah, no, that’s a good one. Good one. Tim. What do you think?
It’s a cocktail, but I don’t know what what’s in it. I have no clue. Yeah. Yeah. I think it’s gin and champagne. Oh, that’s an interesting combination. Is that your final answer, Linda?
Sure. That’s, that’s what I thought of it. So once upon a time at a restaurant, it was on the menu, and I said, Oh, this sounds interesting. Let me try this. Bobby, what
do you think of this? If? If a friend offers to give you a French 75 what would that be?
Well, I hope it’s a really good friend and they give you a 569 I hope no kids are watching. They’re ruined their life now. What do you what do you think Laurie?
What do you think if a friend offers a French 75?
A French 75? That sounds like a date with the sugar daddy. What do you think Claire?
would think I would say no, thank you, whatever.
Claire has a 74 she doesn’t need a 75 Oh, that’s funny. Am I gonna go the opposite because of a friend asked me I’d be like, go for it. Let’s figure that out. All right. So Does everybody know who Ann Landers is? Yes. Walters from the 70s. Pam landers. Dear Abby. Amy. All of those
are. Right. So she was like ask her a question. And she’d give you the manner proper manner. answer, I guess you could call it for those who don’t know. So does Ann Landers think there’s anything wrong with you? If you do the housework in the nude? What do you say nosy. Yeah.
I go first. Oh, my. I have no idea who that person is. How’s your housework? Kind of reminds me my country. Come on. I’m kind of there’s no way I can do housework, fully dressed. Just kidding. But I can picture that actually. I can see people doing housework. Absolutely. What do you think Paul?
As long as I can keep my shoes on because I don’t get my feet dirty. Well, I’m doing the doing the cleaning. I’m okay with it. Oh, good. That’s good. What do you think Tim?
I actually had somebody clean my house and asked me if it was okay to do that. And I said, Look, I’m not gonna be here so you can do whatever the heck you want.
He didn’t tell me when cameras set up. Yeah, I think it’s a little strange, but whatever. You know, if it makes you happy, doesn’t hurt anybody. So yeah, true. through what do you think Laurie?
Well, I think that Ann Landers would say, Sure, as long as you draw your blinds, draw your curtains.
Just share it amongst your own household. That’s good, too. Yeah. I remember on the friends show, where they’d always be peeking in the other apartment buildings. Yeah. What do you think that See?
Well, I don’t like wearing clothes. I know, I wear real clothes as possible in the house. So hey, if you want to play naked, go right ahead.
No more power to you. That’s what you’re saying. Yeah. What do you think Claire? I think she would say it’ll at least put on an apron. And don’t bend over.
What do you think, Linda?
I think she’d say, if you want to put some more spice into your romantic life, go ahead and do it. That’s probably watching. All right. What do you think, Bobby?
I’m so accident prone. I would be in the ER and I’d have to tell the doctor that I had an accident with a vacuum cleaner and I don’t even I don’t even like to shower naked.
The switches on the vacuum. Is that what you’re telling me? I don’t I you know, I after 50 you know, I don’t even want to look down. You know, I had a peeping tom look in and pull down the shade. Oh, my Miss. Did I miss you? know, you got
me naked. That’s right. That’s right. Okay. Um, the second question is, there are a few movies out there. Sliding doors is one if anybody’s seen that one. Heaven can wait. Is your time up?
When it’s up? Has anyone seen those movies? No. Haven’t conveyed as I thought it was. Yeah, I saw having can wait. But I yeah, it’s been a really long time. And old movie who was in it. And I forgot. we’re now seeing movies in the 80s are old. And sliding doors. I don’t know when one time.
It’s about, I think a 10 year old movie. Now it was when a woman had multiple pathways to take and she chose one. But they all ended up going to the same direction in the end that just took different lengths of time to get there. So what are your thoughts? This is your when your time is up? It’s up? You want to start clear.
My husband died at 259 on Good Friday. And for those in the Christian tradition, they say Christ died at three. So somebody said, you know, Jim wanted to get out of town before the big guy came. So I think I’m watching him die and slip away. I think it was his time and in his way. And yeah, I do. I think it’s
that possibly possibly, what do you think Laurie? You’ve seen a lot of this sort of stuff. Yeah.
I think ultimately, I just can’t help but go with my my Christian roots, which is that the plans than the plan since before we existed? And so like with the gal in that movie where no matter what she’s you still end up with the same result. I yeah, I think that’s right. Okay, what do you think that See?
Yes, I think we’re, we’re born. God has a date for us. When we go and nothing is gonna stop that. I watched my husband die. I knew that was his time. No one else know, but I knew and it’s just incredible in a way When you see someone passing, you know, my husband for he couldn’t open his eyes, he would look up the staling. And I’d say, Matt, what do you see? You see angels. And I believe that he saw Allah. Angels. He was seeing dead people before he died. Yeah. And I believe when your time’s up your time is up that that?
Yeah. What do you think, Linda? Well, how much time do we have? Just a short answer. Okay. Um, short answer would be. I believe that before we incarnate, we have chosen a plan for ourselves, whatever it is that we want to work on lessons, people in our lives. And then we come here
to the extent we can realize that I’ve also heard and read. And it feels right to me that there are times within our life that something happens. And we have a choice at that moment. To go back home, the spirit world, or to stay here. And all of these stories, you read about near death experiences with people coming back and saying, I really wanted to stay. It’s so loving, It’s so peaceful. It’s so this, it’s so that. And I was told it’s not my time.
And I come back. It’s very, yeah. There does seem to be a lot of communication. But I would just generally call the unseen world as we near our own deaths.
There are so many reports of that. And I mentioned talk about that in my book as well. When my husband was a cradle Catholic, and when he decided for him, when he decided he was ready, he said, I’m ready to die. Three days later, he was gone. And However, he waited, until he kept asking, when is the feast of the Assumption? August 15. He always said this prayer, to marry the Virgin Mary. And there’s a line in there about I fly on to you. I’ve often felt and I’m getting shivers as I relate this, that he intentionally waited until the morning of August 15.
That’s interest on her day. That meant it obviously meant something to that. Awesome. Thank you. Thank you. So what do you think, Paul?
I feel like we just don’t know when it’s our time. So I think people have said it earlier. We got to make the most of it every day, do something that gives you joy, whatever that is making somebody smile. Cook your favorite dish, drive your favorite place, do something that gives you joy. And I think that it’s all we can do. Awesome. What do you think, Bobby?
Oh, well, I hit the snooze bar all the time in the morning. So it’s like snooze, snooze. I didn’t want to get up. I’d be the one to be like you’re dying Now. Now. Give me five more minutes. I’ll be I’ll be there in a minute. And I you know, when it comes to death, I i, this past year, have had the closest amount of death in my life that I ever want to see. I lost 17 friends to COVID I lost six relatives. My mother included my mother’s sister, my uncle. We’re having their Memorial having a memorial for six people. On August 14. It’s so funny that you should mention August 15 because the minister that I have coming from our church from when I grew up, this is the church that I was baptized in I was born and raised Roman Catholic. He actually asked if if we were definitely do it on Saturday because he has you had the mass that’s done on Sunday. And I totally forgot until you just told me and now I’m like well, I’m giving him extra CD at the party because he’s you know, he’s he’s taking some time out to help my family so, but as far as death goes. My father I had a lot of prep with my father when he died because he was dying of lung cancer and He actually we were, we were sitting on the bed together in his hospital bed and in our living room watching Greece. And I always say living in john killed my father. But I didn’t mean that jokingly, of course, but he was his time to go. But we watched that movie because that was a movie we saw together, he took me to see Greece in the theater. And, and then I fell to leave. And that was more traumatic than getting a phone call that your mom passed away in a nursing home. And it’s hard to watch the one you the people you love pass. And it’s it’s a but it’s also there’s survivor’s guilt as well. Because you’re like, Well, why wasn’t Why didn’t why wasn’t me, you know, why did it have to be him? And he was my dad was 60 when he died. So it was, you know, so it’s in depth is a mystery, you know, too. And we never know. We never know what is on the other side. I know that there’s something because there has to be, there’s no way we didn’t we there’s no way we came here for no reason. And no, whatever that is, whatever you believe it is, I definitely believe there’s another there’s another level that we’re going to, but I, I try I mean, this year in particular, I never thought that I would be at such an intimate relationship with death. And, and I think that that, you know, when you look at the numbers for COVID, that was 600,000 people in America, that’s 600,000 families affected. And I think everyone has a little PTSD, that we’re all processing. And it you know, people say, you know, do you fear death, I don’t fear death, I fear the unknown. You know, and I fear, I fear the, I fear for the people that I leave behind, because I take care of so many people in my life. So I really feel like there is there is a there’s no easy, there’s no easy answer, because you know, I’m not dead yet. Sorry, Tina, I tried. You know, but I kind of feel like, I will fight to stay alive as much as possible. And in in the in honor of those who left us, I will fight every minute to stay alive. And to spread the word of joy. My mother’s my mother’s message was not a sad one. My book is called ship my mama says because gotta tell you, she told me a lot of crazy stuff. And I had to cry, I had to write it down. And because I when I started posting, the way that I would deal with the anticipatory grief that I was having, was making these posts up on Facebook and, and Instagram and with the hashtag shit, my mama says, and people would get such a kick out of it. And I compiled them all in one place. And I just spent the whole time when I was writing, laughing so much. And she was alive again. In in and she’s, you know, she’s alive now and every copy of the book. And she actually,
you know, I know that I love I love making people laugh it to me, it’s like that’s, that’s like heroin, to me. There is nothing more addictive than making people laugh and seeing smiles on faces, people’s faces, because something you said or did. But that was my mother’s coping mechanism. She always wanted to make people laugh, whether she was in a tense situation, or someone else was in a tense situation. That was her coping mechanism, and I kind of have absorbed it myself. And, and that’s why I honest, you know, not to take up too much time, but that I really feel like there is there is another, there’s another plane that we’re going to. And it’s cool. So thank you. So Bobby’s called you, Annie. What do you think Danny?
Well, first, I would like to say to Bobby, sorry for your losses. That’s really sad. And I have to agree with Paul. So I’m going to focus more on the word time than my time is up. Because we never know when our time is up. It can happen in the blink of an eye. But we can focus on our time here and be kind and be gentle, kind, welcoming, caring, loving with everyone. So when our time is up, we can just let go. Yeah, no, that’s excellent. Thank you. What do you think, Tim?
Well, a couple things. I’ve been taught there’s no accidents in life. And so then I think fate is appropriate and that we like Linda said, we we Come here in the physical world, to make corrections on our past life, things that we didn’t do, we didn’t complete. And we come back until those are complete. Now, regarding Bobby in the shit, my mother said, I’ll share this with you in closing, and that is, when she was in hospice, I went to visit her. And when I walked in, she said, What the hell are you doing here? Number one. And then number two, she said, Well, since you’re here, do me a favor, go out and get me a fifth of scotch and a cheeseburger. She wanted to grow up. She’s always on her own terms. So I said, Yes, ma’am. Yeah. That’s funny combination. Yeah.
Did I get everyone? Yes, I think so. All right, here comes a funny one. Anything brings tears to a monkey’s eyes. What would that be? What do you think, Tim? When they take the bananas away? Of course. That’s a good one. That’s a good one. What do you think, Paul? When they put on the diaper? That’s probably true, too. What do you think Laurie? What brings tears to a monkey’s eyes? onions.
What do you think that’s what I was gonna say, but I’ll say no playmate.
Yeah, probably too. Yes. What do you think Claire? Well,
I enjoy onions is my if that’s good. I was thinking hay fever. So Oh, yeah. I wonder if they get that too. What do you think Linda? Their trees? Huh?
deforestation. And that’s double edge because of the environmental impact as well as for them personally.
Yes. Probably. Very true. That’s changing on those poor little guys. What do you think any?
I would say living in a cage. Yeah. That’s probably true too. And just eat all day. Bananas from people that are just looking at me. If I was a monkey.
And Bobby, what do you think? Tarzan without a loincloth? I’m sorry, everybody. This is heroin to me. So making you laugh is what I love doing. So the monkey could cry, or he could laugh in your respect? Depends on how long it Nevermind. Go there.
Did I get everyone on that one? I think I did. Alright, um, with the emerging blueprint that’s coming out for your backup plan app. It has a treasure box. What would you put into your treasure box for your legacy? Wow. Laurie, you probably clicked on answering that one.
No, because I’m thinking about so many things. So in my treasure box, for my backup plan. I’m going to have to say my USB with all the photos.
That’s a good one. Yeah. All your photos so that people have them. What do you think Betsy?
You know, I gotta say pictures. videos. Yeah. The memory those memories. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. What do you think, Paul?
Yeah, I’m the same way pictures, videos, anything that was of me. Okay. What do you think Claire? My Girl Scout uniform. Oh. The other day, why not? But the heck? Yeah, absolutely doesn’t have your name on it still?
No, but I have my sash with my badges found my green beaming. So
what do you think Linda? That has to be music? have to be music? Maybe my my dying playlist? What about you singing? Would it include that too? Sure. Yeah. Okay, wait, wait, Linda, you have a dying playlist? Yeah, don’t you have one yet? You can playlist? You don’t know what Linda does for a living, right? Yes. We never know when but I working on it. I love. I love music. I’m a singer to the dying among others something so yes, I’m accumulating my list of songs. And need to make sure my survivors know where it is. So they can for me, excuse me? And what songs you want played? Yes, what songs I want to play. So I would also put in the sheet music for the songs that have come through me. That’s a good one, too. It’s a good one. And what do you think, Tim?
I would put it in there my heart. Ah. And what would you have on your heart? You know, you talk about legacy. And that’s that’s what I’ve given. And I continue to give, you know, to others and help others and I’m all about the heart. You know? Nice.
That’s very sweet. And that’s very cutting your edge out of your masculinity. Good job on that one. Good job. So what do you think me? What would you put in your treasure box?
I would say my first response was to put to put pictures as memories. But I think I would put pictures in words or in paintings. Oh, I wouldn’t mind my own pictures to share memories.
Yeah, that’s beautiful keepsake. And I don’t know what Bobby’s gonna say.
Actually not gonna make you laugh with us. But no, actually my books. Both books are from the heart. And they are my, my cookbook with with all the stories of my childhood in there as well as mom’s book because, you know, I want her to live on. And that’s the way that I see. Both the That’s why, you know, during that time period, I had COVID so I was sick. The day after my mom passed, I can’t I woke up to COVID so I started writing that day, because I didn’t know if I was going to make it. And I just poured everything out and and then I was like, Oh, you mean I’m gonna live? Oh, God, great. I’m going to publish this now. You know, but because you get set close. And you you know, because I live in Queens, New York, which is the outbreak is where the main outbreak of COVID happened. Our hospitals were overrun ambulances every 20 minutes passing the house. So if there was anything that was a motivator to get your story written now that was it. And I you know, I don’t mind I want to share it with as many people as possible and and after I’m gone. I live on just like my mother’s living on in my book.
Right? Especially if you can share those recipes. Absolutely. Chocolate Peanut Butter Martini is the best. sound so good, doesn’t it? It really tastes just like it tastes like a peanut butter cup. best recipe in the book.
We’re all gonna make people drink here. All right, I have a good one for you. everyone listening. The Vatican recently lifted its ban on female visitors to St. Peter’s who wear many skirts, shorts, and see through blouses. But there’s one condition.
What would that be? The simple thing Betsy, what would that be? I have no idea to be covered. Your What did you say? their head has to be covered. Okay, that’s a good answer. Good answer. What do you think Annie?
I would say they can wear whatever they want or they don’t want as long as they were a caftan on top of it. Yeah. That’s a good answer. What do you think Claire? She’s to wear shoes. Oh, good one. What do you think Laurie?
Um, they have to go to Confession while they’re there.
stole mine, Laurie? That’s funny. That’s a good one. What do you think, Paul? The guys have to wear a blindfold? A good one, too. I know what no one said my answer yet. So there you go. Linda, what do you think?
I actually thought of the same thing that Annie said I would. Oh, it’s it’s not it’s not a funny question for me. I I would not want to see anyone dressed that way. In that sacred space. Right. So my only answer is to be completely covered.
Right? Because then they can wear whatever they want underneath. Right, right. Yeah. Okay. What do you think, Bobby? You.
I said go to I was gonna say go to confession. Or, or maybe the altar boys have to be dressed the same? I don’t know. I think, you know, part of me is also with Linda because I’m like, Oh, I get nervous when I see people wearing jeans to church. So
it’s like, you know, it is kind of a sacred space. We should be respectful. Yeah, right. What do you think, Tim?
Well, off of what Paul said, I think that all the men have to wear their glasses. Go away.
My answer to that question was going to be you can wear that on the top, but you have to wear pants. But yeah, I don’t know what they were thinking back in the 70s. I don’t know what Paul Allen said to that. Do you remember Bobby when he said,
No. I don’t I don’t remember. All right. So the next question is, who is generally better looking? A fairy or a pixie? Yeah. What do you think, Tim?
These are so hard. I don’t know. I’ll just say a fairy. I don’t know what a pixie looks like. Oh, there you go. So you just picked one anyways, right? Yeah. What do you think, Danny?
Well, I don’t know what it Pixies. But I have an idea what a fairies and fairies are always beautiful. So I’ll go with fairies. Okay, that’s good. What do you think Linda?
They both are because they’re being themselves.
Oh, that’s sweet. thing. Every day all rings a fairy gets their wings. What do you think, Paul? I think it’s the Pixie because I think the Pixie is supposed to be cute. I’ll answer that in a second. What do you think, Bobby? Well, I live in New York. We have lots of fairies. There. There’s a bit I guess. I’ll say fairies. Do you have Pixies in New York too? Not that I can just fly with the fairies. Literally. Oh, gosh. What do you think Claire?
Well, I’d say either one is long. They don’t wear short skirts and see through blouses.
That’s true too, isn’t it? What do you think? Laurie? It depends how much I’ve had to drink I guess. Which one looks better on the day? Yeah. What do you think that See?
Well, to be honest, I didn’t never heard of Pixie except for a pixie haircut that I had back when I was a little girl. Yo, I know that the haircuts were cute. I guess they’re both beautiful in their own way. Yes, yeah. Absolutely. Awesome. Did I get everybody? I think so.
So I believe a pixie is like a fairy, but it’s a little bit mysterious, and gets into trouble a little bit. By doing they don’t do mean things. Did you find them? funny things? But that’s the difference between a fairy and a pixie? I guess it depends on what kind of attitude you want from them.
That is probably the answer. It’s a naughty, very naughty fairy,
so to speak. And the last question is there is now a travel agency that specializes in nude cruises to Europe. What should you wear to dinner? Betsy, what do you think?
Well, it’s not occurs and I’d go wide. I have no idea. A bib.
Oh, gosh. What do you think Laurie? Your glasses. Oh, that’s a good one. That’s a good one. That way, you can see everyone better. What do you think Claire? I’d say bring a towel. A towel to like, something to sit on? Oh, I was gonna say again, invite to your corner of your journals away are what do you do with the towel? Okay, what do you think, Linda?
I think I’d wear my hat so I wouldn’t have to see anyone.
What do you think Paul? Depends, is this a formal dinner? I’m gonna have to wear my bow tie. here if it wasn’t formal, I would not wear my bow tie. Oh, gosh, Tim, what do you think? I would wear two masks. One, one below and one. Oh, but you can still see everybody else but you don’t want people to see you. What are you trying to say? That’s my decision. You know, it’s a personal thing. What do you think me?
Okay, I when you said the question, I missed the question, but I kind of got the understanding from the responses. So we should love our body and feel comfortable in it. Whether we look at other people, or whether it’s us. So I would probably say Go Natural. And nothing. What would you wear to dinner? Just go as you are safe. Everyone is like that. Why not? Yeah, yeah. If I were something I would just stand out. I don’t want to stand out.
Yeah, exactly. Exactly. What do you think, Bobby? Oh, God. Well, I would never be on a nude cruise anywhere. So I wouldn’t put anybody through that. Yeah. You know, someone told me the other day you Oh, you’re young. You have a body of a 20 year old. I said I’m giving it back. I’m getting it all wrinkled. I would wear a smile and a bow tie.
Oh, there you go. You make it professional, of course. Yes. Absolutely. Formal nudity.
So in wrap up, what do you think if we went around to each one of you? What would you have, you know it’s it’s been a crazy month. We’ve had right now there’s about 272 wildfires in British Columbia. And there’s an exorbitant amount in the pacific northwest side, Oregon, California, Washington State. We’re all struggling with drought. And then in other areas, there’s crazy crazy flooding. I couldn’t even keep up with social media. I couldn’t even keep up with the breaking news this last few weeks, between buildings collapsing wildfires, floods COVID. Um, and we had a terrible crane accident in Kelowna, British Columbia, where the crane fell down and killed four of the workers. And believe it or not, the crane fell on a building next door and killed one person, one man that was working in the office. That’s crazy. So considering everything that’s happened this month, we don’t want to put a doldrums on everything. But it’s just been a really crazy month of strange and unusual things happening. What would you like to say, with your final notes to every all our listeners? Who would like to start? up? Go for it? Go for it, Lord.
Um, well, obviously, with me being in funeral service, so I’m present for people during all this difficult time. And I mean, at the end of the day, you know, no one ever says on their deathbed. Oh, I wish I had more things. They just wish they had more time and memories. So just remember how precious life is and to truly put your energy in what’s important to you? That’s lovely. Thank you. What do you think, Betsy?
I have a new appreciation for life. My husband died. He was 66. My brother died this year, he was 67. Don’t worry about what other people think. Do what you want to do, do what’s right for you, and enjoy life and celebrate life every single day. And that’s what I choose to do celebrate life with my son. That’s beautiful. Thank you. Thank you, man. Oh, awesome. Thank you, Paul, what do you think?
I think that it’s important that we give kindness, Grace and patience to people because we don’t know what they’re going through. You know, they could be rude, but there could be a reason for it. So it’s important that we we express grace and kindness to everyone.
That’s lovely to Gosh, I got the best group, don’t I? So I feel like I’m a teacher. And I’ve taught you all well. You all get a pluses. What do you think Claire?
I’d say that. Each of us has a special gift that we’re called to share with the world. And each of us has a unique gift. We should find courage in speaking that gift or sharing that gift. And that the bottom line of all of this is love doing to others. However, whatever faith you might be, but treat others as you would want to be treated. And remember that we’re human. That’s the thread that holds us all together as human, and we’re capable much as beautiful too. Oh, you guys are really killing it. What do you think, Linda?
My Instagram posts today mentioned that we each have a skill, a talent or a way of being in the world. For me, one of those is being joy, and bringing joy and compassion to people. The rest of that post was from Edgar Casey who said and I mentioned it earlier, for each of us, to us, who we are to be a channel of blessings not only to ourselves, but also to each other. We can do that actively in action and outward movement. And we can do it by taking some quiet, whether you call it prayer, or meditation, or sending good energy, or holding people, huh? In the light, whatever your language is. It’s all energetic. It is all felt. It all moves out, like ripples in a pond. Absolutely, that’s beautiful. That’s in that funny how you just did that post today? That’s, that’s interesting. That’s interesting. What do you think, Tim?
Well, I agree with Dr. Claire. My mantra is love thy neighbor. And, you know, I believe strongly that if we all practice that we wouldn’t be seeing all this devastation and pain and suffering in the world today. You know, we’d be doing God’s work and, and, you know, there’s just so much hatred and, and bias, and everything is very divisive today, and, you know, love thy neighbor. For me, it just stands out at the top of the hill, and everything else pales in comparison. Awesome. That’s beautiful, too. What do you think me?
I live my life following my own model saying that reality can change in one split second. So I would say to people, not to be hard on the arm themselves. Don’t be Don’t be hard on yourself. Because we tend to be our most critical. You know, we judge ourselves so much we shouldn’t. And I will agree with Dr. Claire. Because I think it’s very important to treat everyone like we want to be treated. The world would be a better place. If we treat everyone like we want to be treated, being kind, being generous with feelings. Not with materials, feelings, and supportive. That’s all we can do and enjoy even the simple stuff in life. Yes, absolutely. Thank you. That’s beautiful, too. Bobby, can you beat that? I don’t know. Oh, no, that one. I
guess, Annie, I’m going to have to go on a nude cruise. Now that you said that. I just want to say I’m just honored to be with all of you today. I, you know, I live in this little insular world. And, you know, it’s nothing brings me more joy than to make people smile and laugh. And so and that was my mother’s gift. To me, that was my mother’s message to me. And, you know, no matter what’s going on in my life, that I try so hard to make myself laugh. And, but I’m just honored to be with this amazing group of people who are also passionate and different. And I think that that’s the world and we have to like, what Tim was saying about love thy neighbor, I already love you guys. You know, but, but I feel like there’s, there’s a way to be the messenger of that healing and be the messenger of that love. And my in my world through humor. And that’s my that is my gift. And, you know, I’m happy to share that at any time. But whose phone is is? Do you want to pick it up? Or you want me to answer it was just
just a text about that guy who boarded a plane dressed as his wife.
Because he’s from New York and was trying to get only in New York. I thought there was someone else, guys. Oh, yeah. Plenty. Yeah. Well, we have lots here to thank you for having me teen. I’m honored to be here today. So
and I’m honored to have all of you because it’s really meant a lot to me. It’s my one year anniversary. And it’s been awesome. It’s been an absolutely beautiful, awesome time. And we’re all different, but we’re all the same. It’s amazing.
Really as and I don’t know who can tell me what do I say at the end of my show. Carol Burnett tarpey bread Well, just before that, what do I say? Oh, I didn’t study that one. Sorry,
y’all remember when as soon as I say it, how’s that? If you were thinking of someone today, in your mind, while you’re watching the show that you love and care about, please reach out to them, pick up the phone, text them, Skype them, message them, whatever it is, there’s so many different ways. Tell them how much you love and care about because you don’t know what tomorrow may bring. And then, of course, Carol Burnett, does anybody want to sing it with me? Because I don’t want this to end. But we have to end it at some point. So I’m so glad we had this time together. Just to have a laugh or sing a song since we just get started. And before you know it comes a time. We have to say so long. Thanks, Tina. Three, it was on your year. I can’t believe it. I can’t believe it already a year. Congratulations. Yeah. So thanks, everybody.
