I'm so well elementary school in news lady teacher and an elementary school. And I'm reminded of it every time they do this dramatics of the hurricane and the potential path of hurricane. The story don't call don't yell wolf. Well of them this is even. Better than that has threatened it.

Buena bang at Charlotte though it might come up through Miami your skirt across the gulf or. All of those different things in every time. If that happens I'm reminded of my elementary school teacher back then. All the come all the hurricane names were female. Right. All of and found the way she talked was. Hurricanes. Her they are her a cane on ninth email in the way he can remember that boys and girls. Is females. Are unpredictable. So you'd never know what direction that storm again I think this thing isn't it. Spouses this is sexist on so many levels marketing and pat pat I can't exactly tell you need to bare metric pressures and trends and how that's measured in what it means lower bar here. High pressure. All of those things that I learned in that class but I do remember. That females are unpredictable they're about our most important thing that's pretty average caller that I thought but not. A I'm glad I made life lessened by meteorologist. Lady birds schoolteacher.

Does that date passes did you get access to Donnelly the the activity itself but the key here and of course the beverage options are are planning to get out here to. We get air Custer house tell us all about it I got a couple more questions. And these have. Made a strong play now they're being televised and all of that but they are available there at the US national Whitewater center. Obstacle courses and that sort of thing team building zip lines. You have all of that there all along the banks of the top as well. That's right you're welcome back on this trailed the trees and you look at PC people sixty feet up in the air group's courses appliance and a lot of that's part of our canopy tour part of our road courses but also pour team built programs that we get. A lot of corporate groups that your a lot of community organizations throughout the year bringing their inducted. Decent routine building activities traverse there is there's no obstacle courses that you're going cataract here integrate it a little bit more about your own personal skills and limitations as. How to how to do that. Getting here whether you would appear with itself. Big obstacle courses are of course is applied there are certainly getting to be unique experience. And that because you heard me scream that I'm. Pilot Eric how does being frightened to death make you a better team player. Your head up if you can have out there. And now we hope somebody does I guess it's okay and so that's the team building parts as we have somebody rescue if you're on top of the street bill. On on an easier note tell us about the music that's coming up. Sure yeah yeah like I mentioned we continue along the river jam concert series for the next several weeks left. Right up until the end of the month to September. Great line it's still about Saturday September 16 empire street express will be year followed by the chain cleaned and on Thursday the 21.

We got some great band still the third in the day headlined by weight in the starting at 7 PM complain to accept that he can accept. The full lineup of musical festivals galleries here are available or let's say US and WG. About pork. And he thinks some of that it's taken out because you have a huge attendance out there for that river jam in the music game and that sort of thing and meanwhile Charlie you know we've had some. Of our lives music venues that have closed whether abate Fremont or the double door or those kinds of places do you think that Whitewater center of all places is picking up some of that loud music. For people to to come listen to in person. Don't agree people you know I mean people are looking for that experience and I think the unique thing about our facility media myself support differently from a lot of other music that is in the area is just the outdoor component you can come and enjoy Asia outside. You know you might be looking at some pictures that bring out to 3000 people we can 567000. Serbs are here for some of our bigger festivals like success with. With some big headline name so I think it's you know it's as the community grows they're looking for good music options you know we see some that he's coming you know it's. We're fortunate to to see those numbers attendance grow year after year and just get the the freak show outside serious about balance of that talent that we been able to bring in and so offered at no cost no tickets. It's is something that we hope will will continue to drive those numbers look. Julia can afford that. Let's not try to make a list while we were talking in the gist of this conversation really is.

Except for North Korea and parts of China. Don Yeager wanna take a quick moment to ask you a question putting you on the spot. Of what may have happened on this day September 16 1908. There was an hour car company. That was created. I gentleman named William Durant spent 2000 dollars on this day to incorporate. A car company in New Jersey he was high school drop out made its fortune building horse drawn carriages. And ironically enough. He hated. Automobiles. He hated cars. He thought they were noisy smelly. And dangerous. He would been rusty. It's real soap opera problem currently has speak out there are profitable as well amazing the things will sell a lot of people sell their souls for money for a nevertheless. This is off from the History Channel. The giant company he built would dominate the American auto industry for decades and continues to be a household name Don Yeager can you name. That car company and whose lives watching television doesn't feature anything you're talking about General Motors he bought up everybody could. There were about 45 different car or run Lilly is. In the way mobiles. Most of these car companies only sold a handful of cars each year. Most of those companies back in would take a down payment on a car. And only a few were delivered before the car company would go out of business. In fact industrialist Benjamin Briscoe caught that way of doing business quote manufacturing. Gambling and he proposed. A better idea. So anyway. William Durant was. Was approached. And they wanted to consolidate. The largest and most reliable. Manufactures. And once it's you just said at this summit a user I mean Ford. RE which is Oldsmobile. From the Maxwell Briscoe. And Iranians Buick brand. Consolidated into one big company Arnold thank you got forward but he tried to buy them. He tried to back forward that it was in out lists here as well. Om and in fact. That was the opposing company he kind of came and it is an entirely different way. From Iran. Wanted to make a variety of cars. Hits all of those brands Oldsmobile Cadillac Oakland. Which later became Pontiac in forward. Just did those black model cities. But the story at halftime and what color was Bure back boo boo boo panel where it was why. So they permit. A mistake so GM. In its first two years cobbled together thirty companies. They were eleven auto makers are dismay at some level Oldsmobile Cadillac at Oakland. Which became ID act did what we're the ones you know saying well leaves Willie. Is will be some supplier firms and even an electric company were all compounded under General Motors. Now this is where the story took a strange turn. On. In 1911. Because combined mean and putting all those companies together was so expensive. That in 1911. They called Durant a spendthrift. In the corporation's board. Forced him to quit. And he started a new company you know. With the Chevrolet Brothers. And you know what they did then who they bought enough General Motors stock to re gain control of the corporation. In 1916. But the story was never a fan.
