It's our way it is ready at 930 WBE and let live this is not a -- this is not a repeat if you're listening on the Thursday the day after Christmas and it's ten minutes after five you're hearing the program lives. Course -- at 11 o'clock at night listening to Iran it would be lie but right now we are alive 5:10 PM. On Thursday the day after Christmas and folks I hope -- you. Had. As much of a wonderful time. On your Christmas. As I did I think my entire family -- And eight. You know. It it means. That doesn't mean the world to you. If you are blast were fortunate enough. To have family. That understands you. And you understand them. And you spend more time laughing. Than anything else I pretty much laughed out. From Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. It's. And -- this is not some charade for the radio you know like get some consultants came minutes that -- top we need you to be more family oriented and we we need you to talk about family in the importance of family. That's phony vets that have fraudulent. The point. Is that. If you listen to the show long enough. You know that reality. And genuine. And obviously on the year with you guys that's my all work that's what I do. And it's the same way when I'm off -- I'm not nearly as entertaining off the year perhaps. The year of the microphone you'd read. But we have such a wonderful time and it's just that. -- it's it's. It's kind of thing where. And we don't we don't we're sure we don't where we were short but I -- we're we're not all dressed up -- were not pretending to be things that we are not. That's what I -- genuine it's not some forced charade that where. -- -- very good at it -- That you get -- the car. That. There furiously. Reached at don't -- May be my -- he says that about me and I just don't know. All insecure moment in particular moment. All right so anyway my question is do you guys and I I think there's something here I happen to think this is a phenomenal topic. I want you to tell me about family Christmas the end I want you tell me about your family Christmas and the holidays stops and and the new wrinkle into. Like a woman in Florida aged 32 -- sixty. Notice that. Any woman from California or Florida by the age of forty that basically look like you're screwed it would arise out of anyway. Only to recover from your laughter your great gales of laughter after that line but. I don't see how that can be fun. Because Christmas. Don't you think. Ought to -- the. Relaxing. Don't you think it. Ought to be. Stress free as possible. -- I do. We have enough stress in our daily lives do we not. How many you have a stress free life. Nobody how many have you believe -- a daily basis that you almost at the breaking point with stress probably joke you. I'm curious. Do you often the summit of psychological test. Do you often feel as though you were at the breaking point were approaching the breaking point with stress often know you don't look at -- Chelsea doesn't. Now Chelsea -- seriously it is too early concrete brick at Chelsea jeans today and very nice and they -- you're right back to the task at which -- our moral compass shares equilibrium here on the leisure. But there are a lot of people. In this world who work. Right now. There are people even in the midst of the holiday season. Who are going through perhaps a worse. Perhaps they're going through the death of a loved one maybe child. There are people in his life right now we're going through stress because they've lost their job the deals keep melting they don't have the ones that. There's all kinds of stress in this world. It took me to think that the last thing people you have around Christmas Eve and Christmas. Is stress. Unnecessary stress. I think this is just my own little. The theory or observation. That I think a lot of or stress in twenty. -- I wanted to say 2014 to be ahead of the game that that would be but a lot of our stressed in 2013. I happened -- Comes from too many of us trying to cram too much into one day. Too many of us trying to cram too much into one day. I used to be like there. My kids especially my daughter. That she she's one of these people -- she's always got to be doing something. Am I think sometimes you just wrote at a time because -- but that's just eight personal observation which would bring up because I think there are a lot of listening to -- right now. Who are trying to do too much. Time does not expand it for any. There are only 24 hours in the day actually 23 hours and 56 minutes in every -- you can't poll -- time out of your arts. Traffic takes time driving takes time getting groceries takes time taking the average -- time. That moment when you realize you can -- your car keys that takes time. There's so many time vampires out there the Internet of course is that -- time vampire in the world. Currently there are people on this planet. I swear. They're going to be other death bed and they're gonna realize that they never lived a life and we're talking 2030 years from now. As the first generation. Of computer kids begins to mature or and then died. Other death beds. And they never will have lived an actual life. They've simply lived on line. I mean like about the effort do you know people like that because I. People who literally. I didn't think exaggerating them at a -- hyperbole. I said at the right way just in case and he thinks that ignorant I always say hyper -- for laps but. There are people who I don't think know what like it is except. What they post on FaceBook. Or reading people's tweets or sending out tweets themselves. And I really feel sorry for those people. Because. As I believe. That there's -- time and place for everything. And I believe that in the Bible crazy ass these -- at the same thing. And the birds and I think before that Pete -- turned it into a song called turn turn turn to everything -- is this season. And too many of view just my personal opinion too many if you are spending too much time living in. You're living -- virtual life that you were not even sure in the real world because everything that happens happens on the Internet. -- the -- please do not misunderstand me I love it I embrace modern technology I think it is nothing less than a miracle. What computers are able to do I am not -- technology I am not neo luddites. I -- that -- I am not. Well a lot like by the way it was somebody who posed. The industrial age and the extreme luddites were basically like big factories and break up because they -- the factories were gonna put people out of work. They do that fact well the more mechanized -- the last people you -- in the workforce. But let me just get back to Wednesday. We actually have a chance. To interface. With people face to face. When you have a chance to actually talk with real people. And you can see them clearly not over Skype. But when you actually have a chance to reach out and touch somebody. Some workers and all but he joke which I won't make but when you actually have a chance to touch somebody -- in the same presence in the same energy field. As another individual to me that's irreplaceable. And too many people. And if you're eighteen years old listening to me if you think that this -- park who hasn't lived. Kid. -- got more experience that you'll ever have trust. Some of them have been good some of them have been bad but I've lived. And I just a year. As we think about how you spent Christmas yesterday and your whole family. That were raising a whole generation. Of people. Who don't. Really exist in the real world that they viewed the real world as being simply something that is on the line. And. Life is so. Short. It is the blink of -- We compared with geologic time the human lifespan. Is that even the beginning of a pimple on the arts okay it's up saying. So the brief time you have on this planet. I think you need to try without stressing yourself by trying to do too much. I think you have to try to experience the war. A genuine human contact and I'm not being sexual. On single wore a human contact. The benefits of an -- -- it face to face conversation. As opposed to. I'm talking with somebody talking with somebody you're actually and that's what people's pockets and it would -- expert. Everything in moderation votes. And to those who were younger earned it and believe I'm only fifty but I I think like twelve your old and it looked like and there. So there's that and I'm just telling you and this is this is experience talking this is experience talking good experience. Everything in moderation. Live your life in the real world some of the time don't just mine. Seriously. I don't think anybody's gonna die in -- of their kids and their deathbed. Wish is or weeks. Well that's good news out. You know hopefully people are behaving themselves and that's good. Drive by a movie theater last -- week well. No there isn't a Jewish Joker public let them slip by my Jewish friends we say that Christmas has all the day but I. Every theater by which I drove it absolutely jam packed with people seriously. A great idea. If you're not celebrate Christmas at one. Anyway. I wanna find out. Some other things I can whip out. GO I have some other things I can whip out as the program lines. Through the dinner hour. In through the yeah. You know through these 6 to 7 o'clock now. I've got so many things I want to talk about it's not. But the biggest thing that I think. Is on your mind and it's over the rousing success. Is. Your family Christmas. What is your family Christmas like you have to make a zillion different stops. Am. Do you simply establish a home base. You know we've got -- decided in our family. Bet mom does Christmas Eve my brother -- Christmas Day. I do the fourth of July I think I do labor date and I think that's my new might do holiday. Because for many years my family never even saw the inside like a house. -- that you know does that work out that way but now I have assumed control of two major holidays. And I am the king of the grill you show me an Italian sausage and I will turn that thing into a delicious credible piece of art. Conflict green lightning without the -- actually when I think about. All green lightning you guys don't know green lightning was in the statue. By buffalo artist Billy lawless. Basically it was a dancing. Weaker and Jimmy Griffin the mayor buffalo that they dismantled because he thought it was offensive and vial. I thought it was kind of funny but. It was a big hit Chicago anywhere else that went I think -- landfill right now but coming up next we're gonna introduce them. New stuff as well excuse me while I witnessed the I will whip it out coming up after 530 at WBE and get your cameras. I'm scared. Well -- the. And. Element that mr. can't. Who is just another celebrity trying to imitate me between -- Iraq and Brad Pitt all I can say is guys are you pleased is -- old image mine is mine you're never going to be is coolest idea. -- -- Anyway it -- hourly 535. -- News radio 930 WBZ. And joke -- is master control Kelsey is your call screener and it if you're just joining. I hope. You had an absolutely I hope that the best Christmas ever and that next year. I hope that Christmas is the best Christmas and so on and so forth and idea. You know cut I know I sound very chipper. I realize that. Because it's literally. Just -- a -- A gate to the email keeps kicking up the system is a huge -- email retirement -- an email at XB OOK you do market. Permitted it out of my beginning fired in which case that are making plans to move the big real Jamaica to work at hedonism. Which probably is as much but -- vacationing there but descent. But up our deputy assistant -- kick in -- -- but anyway bottom line is. -- -- track record. Agassi Courtney I'm not recording. I'm not trying to be somebody on that dragged me. But. I really love my thing. And it looked like heavily because where Ozzie and Harry -- Leave It to Beaver. You're not everybody. -- -- Not everybody has that kind of a family if you are -- and here if you are the cleaver family. More power to yet. If that is what makes you Julius and it if you love -- because that is the way our top issue. My family. Is. Well everybody says there's. Dysfunctional. But we revel in -- this function. At all. I mean every who is in our family gatherings. Is real and and I think that there is far too much brand being going on in the world I think there's far too much. Sure -- -- I think I just admitted -- That actually went -- I think there's far too much sure -- Jordan looking capturing eatery you bastard save anybody else beat me to in the world. You know. And what I enjoy most about them is they're genuine. And I can honestly tell you and I'll find out this is your experiences well. Honestly tell -- spending five hours. At the hourly dysfunctional family Christmas Eve or Christmas Day celebration. Seems like five minutes or twenty minutes. Didn't look at my watch last night got there about 630. I looked at my watch again. It was well about 45 hours later in at least. Some people. Some people spend five minutes and it feels like twenty hours. And thank god I'm not one of those people. Now the only problem with Christmas Day. Was brother bill. Was not in attendance however. He not all are then made up for it on Christmas Eve at mom's house he wore a teacher. Let's just simply say if you know my brother bill. He's. He's a free spirit. And yeah he's. He's he's a free spirit. Imagines a free spirit so he wears out one of these T shirts and it offers. As it is. Beers in exchange for something else that starts with the letter -- his classic. Am. So so he wasn't there last night we love bill for who we its. Don't know. You know if -- say something in our fan if assaults of our family we put the right way. We do it to their face and then they get right back to us and we laugh. No drunken brawls. You know nobody -- that -- -- have -- And I hope. -- really do folks that would ever dynamic works for you. That you can honestly say today that you had a wonderful wonderful Christmas. Because idea. And it was. I just. Look I know we live in this fraudulent error of branding I have to say this to attract experts have to say to them and yet. -- -- I -- -- in a word that sounds like Barack. Two words so like that. Genuine is words that. It is in my world -- I love genuine people. And I don't like people who pretend -- something that they release are. And I am I'm thinking about it and I hope you can just -- you it's not about me I hope that you in your life. Have family members who were genuine. Who we love and love as deeply as I loved mind. And I hope that you have enough friends and I mean real friends. Who are genuine. People. In fact. I sent out my text messages. For Christmas. Two people that I haven't talked to awhile. I will say -- Merry Christmas. I'm honored to be your friend you know why. Because you were real and genuine in there just aren't enough real and genuine people in the world. And I mean that's that's what it's all about. I don't like what did you guys figure out whether sure rader is a word or -- make it up I made it up. All right folks ladies and gentlemen your humble host the college -- Diana has invented a new word sure -- I suppose you could pronounce it sure lottery but sure greater. That is seeming to be something you're not. And it's especially valuable if you're talking about people making their way through a marriage that hasn't been a marriage in five years. Sure -- sure lottery charade. It up the word and I declare you can pronounce it anyway you want. By the way that is the -- only word I think of invented that I can actually say on the radio. My favorite -- invented is blank waffle. My second favorite is like -- My third favorite is like knuckle. You can fill in the blank and that's exactly what effect. All right it is 542. At WB via your family and your family Christmas. Is it called tranquil peaceful and relaxed. Or is it a laugh riot every second. That is the question. 8030930. Start 930 and 180616. W via that Chelsea Pete calling it -- it's like we -- all budgeted around people. Traffic. Well if they're caught traffic maybe I should know what's going which are now. All right Joseph is it -- he he's given me the off sides. Play is under review. You know I have this feeling. That I've got a puck right now. Stuck in my butt in that I'm backing into a goal but would never happen anywhere right. But it was -- the funniest goal without the most awesome way to win in OT you've ever seen. Look the sabres have not been entertaining each year for the most part the conclusion of the game the other night. I have never seen anything like that. Is in forty years of watching hockey. Where the pockets trapped in the goaltenders Jersey and kind of like dunks in the back of in the back of his hockey pants and he backed into the net thus allowing the -- to cross the goal line. But the untold story of anybody brought this up I didn't have a chance to listen to the post game -- But I'm just glad the -- three didn't blow the whistles are saying that -- lost sight of the puck seat. I would have -- about that how could you possibly it's in the pop you should call the -- that. But apparently the refereeing but they had a eyeball on their part. But I'm glad the sabres won in the way they -- was just awesome and you know what those kinds of breaks you again. When you work hard. And I was skeptical about Ted Nolan being behind the bench because I don't like it when the city goes backward instead looking forward. But. I got to area so far. He looks. I know that this sounds really stupid and -- he looks like an NHL coach he conducts himself like an NHL coach. Ralston to me and god bless and I think somebody he's going to be an NHL coach but right now he wasn't ready. He was put into a situation he was not related to handle. And Ted Nolan. I think he adds that extra dimension to the team those of you who schooled me on Ted Nolan. And convinced me that I should really be okay with -- thank you. Thank you learn a lot from you guys here is a little -- -- on that WB and hello Luke. Hello I'm mark -- really doesn't have any care patient right now because this is the very first. I hear debt after. My son's life decided to divorce him. We will pull out justice -- -- radio on in the background. How many and when we say turn off the radio we don't -- put it very low we've been turning -- devious -- turn it off okay. -- just go go turn it off and then and they get back to follow. Okay thank you. Yeah markets turning lol doesn't mean I -- I don't wanna be Richard your. -- okay so so anyway your sons of wife is it is divorcing your son. Yes he had divorced him and and so we don't really know what we're doing. It's Thanksgiving. It was their only five of us I'm senior citizen. And they're only five of them in the family plus one little boy. And -- we really don't have any traditions that gorgeous. Doing whatever and our traditions will happen I guess it's. And where at all when you say traditions. In a meat from I guess the first thing is who has what holiday now Jersey or the legislature and clear on this. How long as your son and that's what he was very to how long have -- been divorced. November. This year. -- November 23 team there. Okay. And we had gone over to his -- account -- here. But. And we would donate food -- whatever it was needed. This year though it wasn't that way so we kind of cut down -- a lot of things we did not have a meal. -- we head finger foods. Small thing and we do they'll say. Them vegetables with a -- And -- cookies. Never put grape tomatoes and carrots sticks on a platter at the bar -- household with bison brand onion dip because it doesn't and -- Okay. We have fun with our food before -- -- -- now just as quickly your pocket -- does your son and his ex wife are they the people with the boy. Okay now how do they get along in terms of child visitation who has custody is joint custody here -- He hasn't over the weekend now Christmas Day he had the boy and kill. About 4 o'clock. And until we get we opened -- get here. Thanksgiving didn't go too good that was our first time together. And so for Christmas so I decided okay we have to get this organize. So we. -- and told them okay if that's what we're going to do today you can decide on what we have decided that we would like to do and that was. To look at. -- -- movie and. -- mean mr. being. Okay. Or two. Look at everything. Marketplace in game. Well the thing about family things his first all you gotta cut the ex wife out of every picture. Now hi all we apparently are you can we wrote the book -- divorced now. I want you to hold on because you have brought up a great topic and I can't believe -- psyche you are because I was gonna ask divorced people to call in the and tell us how they deal with the kids on Christmas so you must be in my head in some weird way. Pulled out because I wanna talk to some more Lou because that we must have a connection because that was one of the things -- gonna whip out OK okay so don't go anywhere and hold on to that line because. In the famous words of a Mel Brooks movie. Excuse me while I witnessed how. Next on WB here. -- -- should have built the plays down the street a block that we can all blame you the Buffalo News good. Backed up by the way as -- resident of the village of Williams bill I don't wanna commend Carl Paladino. Anybody who thinks that that building is a monstrosity on main street in Williams bill argue for real. I think that building -- class I think Paladino and the construction guys did one hell of a job in the architects of the -- architects today held a job with that building. And I'm a resident there and I love what they did with that building and I'll be damned -- I think it adds a different dimension to the village now do I want the village to look like Manhattan obviously -- dogs but it is hole. In my opinion in keeping with the historic nature of our village and as a resident with thank Carl Paladino for choosing. Our village to pay taxes. So thanks girl and a -- opulent -- luxury -- pad there would be cool. It's 554 at WBE. Here's a little lock for again so little talking here about that separated families were broken families and the holidays. And it's sour loans as know your son and his ex wife have. -- agreed on the visitation. For the holidays. And the other thing I did this year to cut down on what goes on with me. Is it. I happen -- looking through a magazine and I saw a four foot tree that you hang on -- -- And it's all decorated. So I decided to find that. So now I certainly tree that I hang on the mall and I didn't have hit it down box box of food stuff. And then have to put the ball -- again. Amen sister amen. -- To my family refuses to put the Manger scene out any time in coming over because I have been known to place the barn animals in rather Kama sutra positions -- Well there was a little. Bed that was given and -- With a canopy thing. So my daughter kept their bed and put it in the Manger and put baby Jesus in this -- it. -- Eleven I absolutely love it. It just sounds like look nobody likes divorce but everybody's got to realize that you don't divorce your children and -- Believe me. I mean I think pretty much everybody knows this ex wife and I we had a contentious divorce but I can honestly tell you -- that we have been best friends since then we're better friends than we ever would have been -- husband and wife so we never -- she never messed around with visitation. And you know that's my -- to the battle right there. Then -- another question is home. What kind of relationship. Do I have always EX. I feel like I shouldn't have my own idea she is not so I should not ignore her. Well you know what he -- it our other offers suggestions and here's where the younger man is gonna offer a suggestion. Okay treat your ex wife like you would like to be treated as the ex wife the thing with your husband with your daughter didn't. With your son rather did not. Work out she's still the same person you loved and you appreciated so different token gift -- know that she is still thought out in good terms even though that relationship didn't work out because after all she's the mother of your grandchild. -- I'm glad you called bit but I got to move on. Thank you so much. Hey that's a great topic right there. Kids divorce Christmas and try to cram everything in the one day on WB.
