Transcript
[:

[00:00:33] Eric Goranson: Special everybody. Today we're gonna talk about a term in your house that has been all of a sudden, kind of manufactured as controversial over the last couple of years. I talked about this on the show two or three years ago, but after seeing social media this last week, it appears that we need to bring it up again.

[:

[00:01:19] Eric Goranson: Clearly that had something to do with the owners or the head of household's bedroom, because before that you just had bedrooms, you didn't have extra rooms. Homes were pretty small until we got into the turn of the century for most people. There was not a larger bedroom with an attached bathroom that people called like the master bedroom suite or any of that.

[:

[00:02:06] Eric Goranson: If you think about it, when it came back to slavery. Even when it comes to rarely, if never, I'm sure there's an exception, so I'll say rarely. Slaves didn't even live in the house, so you wouldn't be trying to in the same house say which one. Had this bedroom, which one didn't. So it absolutely makes zero sense to try to tie that into it.

[:

[00:02:48] Eric Goranson: Owner's suite when you're a renter. So you see kind of where I'm going with this and the level of ridiculousness. So this is something that I really kind of want to talk about today. So even up [00:03:00] till now, of course there are people out there trying to claim what this is and, and quite frankly, you think about master bedroom, master carpenter, master electrician, a masterful use of the word.

[:

[00:03:42] Eric Goranson: Can you imagine if we took this somewhat ridiculous energy and actually tried to use it for good instead of trying to change this word in real estate? Why don't we try to change. how people are getting into homes. Why aren't we trying to help gain [00:04:00] resources for people that are living in inner cities where they can't barely get their house fixed up?

[:

[00:04:31] Eric Goranson: We should be trying to help people instead work on getting into homes, getting out of houses that they can't live in, that need to be repaired. Getting them into that and really helping people out. So that is my soapbox of the day. Let's spend that energy wisely cuz there are plenty of things we need to change out there, including getting people into homes of whatever [00:05:00] race, religion.

[:

[00:05:31] Eric Goranson: online.com. You can contact me over there. We've got a bunch of different recalls to touch on today. Um, our friends over at MI, windows and Doors is recalling vinyl single hung impact windows due to fall and serious injury hazards. The tilt latch can cause the window opening control devices to malfunction, posing a fall or serious injury hazards.

[:

[00:06:16] Eric Goranson: Uh, LG Electronics recalls free standing 86 inch. That's a good size tv, smart televisions and stands due to serious tip over and entrapment hazards. So I guess that little stand is unstable and can tip over. So, uh, they do not want you to use those stands. There's about 52,000 of those and, um, 1800 in Canada, 2,900 in Mexico.

[:

[00:07:04] Eric Goranson: 61,000 of these. So if you see this bis. Cordless, multi-surface, wet, dry vacuum, one of those uprights. Make sure about 61,000 out there. Make sure that you, uh, get ahold of the Bissell service technician to replace that battery pack. Uh, those are some of the big ones today out there. And of course we did cover earlier, but I want to cover one more time.

[:

[00:07:51] Eric Goranson: All right, that's it on the recall list of the day. All right everybody. I'm gonna keep this pretty quick today on our midweek special cuz I have got to [00:08:00] get out, I have got some shooting to do for the TV show. So, uh, these will be probably a little bit quicker from time to time and, uh, especially when I've got other things to do.

[:

[00:08:31] Eric Goranson: So stay tuned for that. Alright buddy, have a great rest of the week. Happy midweek special. We got a great show ahead this weekend where we're gonna talk about the 10 things. Those mistakes you wanna avoid when you're designing a kitchen. And then we're gonna talk about the 10 mistakes for 2023 to avoid when designing and remodeling a bathroom.
