July 29th 2015: Crossing the World on a Time Machine
Special Guests: Ron Fellowes, author of No Room for Watermelons, veteran motorcycle traveler
Many people dream of one day getting on their motorcycle and setting out to see the world, but not enough of us get that opportunity. This week on Classic Chrome, we are honored to be joined by one man who took such a journey; aboard a now 105 year old motorcycle. In 2012, 68 year old Ron Fellowes of Brisbane, Australia set out to ride his 1910 Fabrique Nationale (FN) Four Cylinder motorcycle more than 9,000 miles from Kathmandu to the factory where it originated in Belguim. Over eight months, Ron’s journey took him through 15 countries and challenged every mechanical part on his machine as well as every fiber of his being. Through his journey, Fellowes traveled across some of the most hostile territory in the world while battling mechanical failures in the face of treacherous environmental conditions and dangerous bystanders. Ron’s pilgrimage brought him to some of the most beautiful parts of the globe, as well as brought him literally within sight of death. With no gears, pedal cranks, and lack of appropriate brakes, Effie, Ron’s 1910 FN made the trip ever more difficult. Despite these tough factors though, Ron and Effie traveled across the globe in the ultimate test of man and machine; a trip only made possible by his own dedication and the unending help of his wife Lynne and generosity of complete strangers. After the trip was completed, Ron and Lynne compiled their documentation and commentary on the ultimate journey of a lifetime into an incredible book: “No Room for Watermelons: A man, his 1910 motorcycle, and an epic journey across the world”.
This week we will be talking about the elderly and special care and the benefits of that service. We will also be talking about hospice care and the toll that that takes on the loved ones of the recipients. Have you ever had a loved one that received special care? Do you know what that is? Do you know what the financial obligations of Special Care are? Is it available to everyone? What about hospice care? What are the differences between Special Care and Hospice Care? Have you ever had a loved one that received Hospice Care? What are some of the factors that determine whether a person should choose hospice Care or or not? What is the emotional toll that is taken on the family of the recipient? Is Hospice Care always the end of the road for the recipients? Does anyone ever come back from receiving Hospice Care or is it usually time to just start making funeral arrangements? This featured guest on this show will be Darby Didah McIntyre-Guy? who has worked in the Special Care industry for a little under 2 decades and has a wealth of knowledge on the topic from a manager's standpoint as well as working in the field. Make sure you check out this very emotion-filled show that is sure to touch everyone's lives in some way.
A frog thrown into a pot of hot water will immediately jump out...a frog brought to boil slowly from cool water will not notice the change: It will die!
An excerpt from They Thought They Were Free, The Germans, 1933-45 by Milton Mayer:
"What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could not understand it, it could not be released because of national security. And their sense of identification with Hitler, their trust in him, made it easier to widen this gap and reassured those who would otherwise have worried about it."
President Obama promised a transparent administration - it has been far from that. And yet, his control of both the Congressional and the Judicial branches has been unusual. Legislation has been passed without thorough understanding of the contents. Executive decision circumventing rule of law is the norm. All the while, political correctness from the citizenry provides a strategic diversion so we won't notice.

UNIVERSE NOW HERE THIS "COZMOPHYZIXIAN RADIO IS ON THE NETWORK"
RINGING STONE HOST RA AKHU AND HIS ENLIGHTEN FAMILY SHALL DEMONSTRATE.
FIRST OFF... ALLOW HIM TO EXPRESS THE FACT THAT COZMOPHYZIXIANS DO NOT CLAIM THAT THE MOTION OF THE PLANETS ARE THE "CAUSE" OF ANY TYPE OF HUMAN OR ANIMAL BEHAVIOR. THE PLANETS , THEIR MOVEMENTS, ANGULAR DISTANCES TO THE EARTH AND EACH OTHER ARE ONLY INDICATORS OF POTENTIAL WORLDLY ACTIVITY ... AND IF THERE ARE ANY AFFECTING PLANETARY ELOCTROMAGNETIC WAVES, THEY ARE NOT MEASURABLE BY ANY MODERN TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENTS AVAILABLE TO US TODAY. HOWEVER; WHAT THEY INDICATE IS ABSOLUTELY OBSERVABLE IN THE PLANT, MINERAL, ANIMAL AND HUMAN KINGDOMS AS OBVIOUSLY AS WE CAN SEE THE SKY CHANGE FROM DARK TO LIGHT.
IF U BELIEVE OR KNOW WE ARE MOVING INTO A NEW AGE, THAN THE COZMOPHYZIXIAN ARE YOUR TRANSLATORS.
