Summer-Peace-Bob Davis Podcast 1056

Summer Peace

Firstly Memorial Day signals the start of summer in the US and I think we all need to get some Summer Peace in 2022. We’ll talk about it in Summer-Peace-Bob Davis Podcast 1056.

I Know The Rules

Due to social media I am well aware of all the rules concerning virtue signalling for holidays like this one.

Up To You

But in this podcast I will leave the protocols of this extended weekend to you.

One Crisis To The Next

Secondly these days life for many Americans is one crisis to the next.

Time For A Break

Therefore it is time for a break.

Peace

That is to say we all need a moment’s peace.

Podcasting For A Long Time

Above all I have been doing podcasts for a long time.

And it is rare for me to be able to do a podcast on any topic as succinctly as this one.

Back In The World

Certainly life ‘back in the world’ is standing in line.

Not So Good

Or waiting for hours to talk to an actual human being.

Even more it’s strapped budgets and time schedules.

In addition work projects that don’t seem to make any sense.

Who’s In Charge?

Finally I get the sense that those in charge have no idea how to even explain ‘the problem’ much less fix it.

Idea Of Peace

As a result I decided to dedicate this first official podcast of summer to the idea of peace.

Summer Peace.

That is to say getting a moment of peace for yourself this summer.

Makes No Sense

In the same vein the world doesn’t make sense to most of us.

Nomad World

On the other hand in the nomad world things are a little different.

For example we spend a lot of time talking about our rigs.

And planning delicious dinners.

Cooperation and Consensus

Moreover while we talk about things back home we seek cooperation and consensus rather than winning an argument.

Gratitude

After that we’re just grateful.

In short I recorded Summer-Peace-Bob Davis Podcast 1056 on memorial day to share some memories and a genuine wish for some summer peace for you…

And everyone.

Summer Peace.

Get Some.

Front-Porch-Summer-Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 928

Live from the Front Porch! These days we all need some summer fun. I once lived on the front porch for an entire summer and it was pure bliss. Summer stories in Front-Porch-Summer-Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 928.

First of all we honor those who have fallen in battle for our country on Memorial Day.

Second we’re not supposed to say, “Have a happy Memorial Day Weekend”.

Finally I did anyway. I know. Just seems like we all need some good summer vibes.

Consequently I might take some flack for my summer best wishes. However this three day weekend in the US is also our summer kick off.

More importantly this is probably going to be the weirdest Memorial Day weekend in memory.

Therefore as I we kick off the weekend time to share some stories about summer.

For example there was the time I spent an entire summer living on the front porch. My backyard ‘fort’. Running around the neighborhood in the middle of the night. Spending the entire summer at the Lion’s Club Pool.

What about those rainy cold summers? Day after day spent playing cards with all the other kids on the neighbor’s front porch. At the end of the summer someone would announce school was starting soon. What happened to the summer?

Above all summers in the upper Midwest are short. Memorial day weekends are usually rainy and cold. Due to the extreme nature of our seasons up here we approach every moment of any warmth with gusto! We’ll talk about it in Front-Porch-Summer-Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 928.

In conclusion, join me on my front porch today as I test out some new podcasting equipment and tell some stories. We all need a break from the insanity.

Summer Without Air Conditioning-Reading More News-Midnight Walk Talk-Bob Davis Podcast 738

Some people turn off their air conditioning as some kind of statement. I just don’t like air conditioning and it doesn’t matter how hot it is. It’s perfectly still outside at midnight. Storms on the way. Time for a walk and talk podcast in┬áSummer Without Air Conditioning-Reading More News-Midnight Walk Talk-Bob Davis Podcast 738.

Back To Reading

These days in my world I feel the need to start reading in depth again. During my talk radio days it wasn’t uncommon to read two to three hundred pages of information a day. Most noteworthy here is podcasting doesn’t require that level of prep. Unfortunately you lose the detail on key issues.

So it’s back to scanning, printing and reading. I feel like I am in summer school!

Two Big Stories

In┬áSummer Without Air Conditioning-Reading More News-Midnight Walk Talk-Bob Davis Podcast 738 we’ll take a look at two big developing stories with an eye toward pointing out how story lines force us to anticipate outcomes rather than waiting until a story plays out.

Telling Us What’s Going To Happen Again

It has been a week since the president slapped tariffs on US trading partners. There has been no measurable economic effect to this date but that doesn’t stop commentators and reporters from telling us how Trump’s actions are already ‘having an economic effect’.

In addition the president’s comments on NATO are generating all kinds of talk. What’s going to happen? Why don’t we wait and see?

No Information Means Shouting Matches Not Conversations

Do you feel confident discussing trade and international defense agreements with strangers? Maybe it’s because you don’t have enough information.

Finally if we’re being fed a constant stream of speculation with no real information, is it any wonder our conversations about issues turn into shouting matches?

Join me on the walk and talk as the storms roll in and we’ll talk it out.
