But after -- or get some what like carrier in order I think that's what does the shall not insurgency coming. 181000 seats at the superdome. Because this is a pop -- star let me look to those what's going on on the question of the potential orders -- Eight. Let's see they wanna know. Which parade is the longest -- is -- -- or is it in demand. I think you stow our financial management in Medimmune barker well sort of what you don't know the original law. As long as they used to be. Are more involved or related it was a joke for a nineteen to eight. In depth chart or they bought -- -- most. There are problems fixed but manner most what did you. And now you know we've also got some questions don't come in in the -- why these sort parades and on whole this is just come the ones that we've taken place over. Today in not asking for an all time favorite but this one text that comes in the that says Zulu they as their favorite because every time you think it's over become more flows all these parades that. Disorganized oh where you never know somebody can jump in at the last minute you know they with the trucks Branagh and once it said it said you got to be registered minute ago. No you'd have to be on the official world where you camper age this be a big -- -- normally operate there perhaps. -- disorganization. But it's not that somebody just. -- here for a second sets aren't too. Although it may seem that way -- Macy's yet but you know average rose is usually as a constant care and but sometimes breakdowns occur you know. Also we've seen some parade crews come and go home -- net loss on net game went wrong we on total numbers -- we actually seeing less now -- have been some new. Come is to replace the old. There's almost all wars. And answer your game wow where'd you can't remember them -- On the nineteen -- were lost eighteen origin gains made you rich and so you know we've gone out. Fifty parades in the Mercury in there that may have been up to shift each font nobody. Though. Which you know now we went from 55 to 35 might be concerned. But I harmonies and not something that you've got sent to your optic etched in the campuses you know all audience. -- more. Is this economics the ones that long absolutely. -- Its -- case is that the leadership. But now it's your career and you know we've we've seen that for at what time it was an exodus to -- or Merrill everybody wants for a central. Arthur if you would it seems like every year there's some item that is -- got to have -- the most sought after roses or anything jump and out this year that people look. Going to be craven -- What you don't want erupted one of anything Smartphone like so -- -- -- you -- -- -- -- -- -- happy but our our technicians are throw it to be just so neat. Or he has -- perhaps domino. It is an honor -- mark is not a -- he's not forming. But he -- signed posters that are used to it. But it is honor they have put two and a quarter inch do balloon that's made its golden -- -- -- -- record -- groups manage. In a hole in the middle. I've never seen anything like that in the time we know the local beloved celebrity's. In our local record Lugo ministers it gets some reduced levels. I think that you would be an Arctic front had to -- one. Bet that might -- more. Stopped robot cannot start thinking about -- in the party trying to look there's a different a local beat each and our inspections. What sort of get a ball better from region in front floats.
