When Will Dark Times End

When Will Dark Times End? Most importantly there seems to be a lot of grief to go around these days. A friend asked me to do a podcast about the subject, Find out why in When-Will-Dark-Times-End?-Bob Davis Podcast 981.

Loss

Certainly I am dealing with a loss in my own life.

Don’t Want To Talk About It

Even more I don’t like talking about it.

Many In Grieving

However my friend said lots of other people are in the same position these days.

Sharing To Help

Moreover, he said, my experiences and thoughts might help.

Don’t Want It To Be About Me

I don’t want this to be about me. But many people are dealing with grief in these dark times.

When Does Darkness End?

Therefore When-Will-Dark-Times-End?-Bob Davis Podcast 981 wonders when the dark time will end.

Any Loss Can Cause Grief

Firstly death isn’t the only cause of grief and bereavement. For instance many of us can be deeply effected by the loss of an animal, a breakup or the loss of a job.

Subtle And Long Lasting Effects

And the effects of grief can be subtle and long lasting.

Above all I don’t have any clinical experience in these matters. In fact I tend to be rather stoic in these situations.

Travel Helps

On the other hand I have traveled across the country most of this year and last.

Darkness All Over America

Consequently I can speak with authority on a general sense of what can only be called darkness that seems like it’s been with us forever.

Tough Times

To sum up it’s not inaccurate to suggest many are going through tough times.

Secondly the cure for me is travel. Just hearing the tires on the highway makes me happy.

Finally as my friend suggested, talking about it seems to help.

Spring Is Coming

Meanwhile the days are getting longer and spring is coming. Maybe the dark time will end soon for everyone.

Nomad-Meetup-New-Mexico-Bob Davis Podcast 973

Firstly holiday season means many avoid travel restrictions with a road trip so it’s a perfect time for a nomad meetup and New Mexico is the place. Join us for Nomad-Meetup-New-Mexico-Bob Davis Podcast 973.

Secondly Las Cruces New Mexico turned out to be the perfect place.

Most importantly I’m doing the nomad thing and my friend Don Anger is doing a variation of the nomad thing.

Don works in the oil fields in Midland, Texas and lives in Case Grande, Arizona.

Even more my old radio buddy works two weeks on, and gets a week off.

Certainly like a lot of other workers these days no one’s taking any risks. Therefore Don is not alone migrating from the job, down the I-10 and back again at least twice a month.

On the other hand I am thoroughly loving the whole nomad experience. Having spent the last week or so in New Mexico, it was easy for me to head to Las Cruces.

Therefore my friend and I could meetup in Mobile Podcast Command for some coffee, and conversation.

As a result we got to share stories of the road and life’s challenges.

Above all how do we deal with issues like where we park at truck stops or Walmart parking lots. What about showers. Food. Do we travel at night or during the day?

In addition why do guys do what we do? For Don it’s about feeding a family and doing what has to be done.

But for me it’s about the open road and pure freedom.

Most importantly in this time lots of people are on the road.

Whether they’re working in one city and commuting to another or hitting the road in the same vein as I am, it doesn’t matter.

Finally even though it seems foreign, strange or even scary to some…It’s home to us.

To sum up we both get a lot of questions about life on the road. Time for a freewheeling conversation with two road warriors about what it’s like, why we do it and why we love it.

Toss Up House Elections 2018-Part 4-Podcast 756

As I do the last two podcasts in the toss up series at the Bob Davis Podcasts, more predictions of a democrat wave are most notable. Are these predictions true? We’ll find out in Toss Up House Elections 2018-Part 4-Podcast 756.

Shellacking

In addition to commentators AP reported this week that republican pollsters are telling top republicans they’re in for a shellacking in November.

As a mission of the Bob Davis Podcasts I have been looking at those elections deemed ‘toss ups’ by the experts.

Conventional Wisdom Is Right Until Wrong

Especially relevant is the idea behind the mission. No predictions. Non partisan. What is the situation in these key districts in the final weeks of the election. Readers, subscribers and listeners might be surprised to learn very few public polls exist. Conventional wisdom drives most of these predictions. I detail this for each toss up in Toss Up House Elections 2018-Part 4-Podcast 756.

Close Elections Don’t Always Mean Flips

From North Carolina to Texas in Toss Up House Elections 2018-Part 4-Podcast 756. Toss up races are simply close elections for whatever reason. Moreover most US House elections are in solid democrat or republican districts. This year some say there are more than 40 districts that will be close. Why they’re close is key.

Open Seats And Changing Geography

In some cases the district is an open seat because of retirements. In other cases, the contours of the district’s geography have changed. What was once a solid republican or democrat district is now supposedly more ‘balanced’.

Everyone Hates Congress…

Finally the real question in the 2018 midterms is whether people will vote their opinions of the president or local concerns. The old saying goes, everyone hates congress but not their congressman.

One Size Fits All Election?

In conclusion I spent a fair amount of time not only looking through the data for these districts but also watching some of the internet and TV ads for candidates. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the republican from the democrat. This is not a one size fits all election even though the media would have its viewers believe it is.

Once I finish this series in this podcast, and the next, I’ll do one more podcast with my analysis since there isn’t much time for that in these podcasts dealing with individual districts.
