As much as I love snack cakes, I always grew up as a hostess kid and didn't really enjoy little Debbie's didn't even see little Debbie's until probably the early to mid 80s when I was going to college in southwest Virginia. Now they've been nationwide and they've been around most of my life, but I didn't really notice them until then. My favorites probably the zebra cakes. I think they're the ones I eat the most if I do eat them. My wife, I think she may have nutty buddies in the house right now and she likes the Swiss cakes and doesn't mind the zebra cakes, and while I've had the Christmas tree cakes, they pretty much all taste the same to me. But the ice cream is making people crazy. Thought? Gonna try it. Gonna see if I can find a pint at Walmart when they start selling it. It's going to be a limited time run. It's going to be something that people are going to be looking for. The look out for, if you really care, little Debbie ice cream, who would have thought people would care that much?

Tolerance and Apathy Are Defining Characteristics of a Dying Society

"Tolerance. You guys have those signs up anywhere on campus. We need a tolerate things. No not no bailers, thankfully not as following as other places. Should we tolerate evil? That's an interesting question, right? And some people say yes, some people say no. And it depends what your kind of idea of tolerance is, right? And what does that actually mean Aristotle, who's the man? Hope you guys are studying Aristotle. Maybe maybe not. Okay. We'll get this a little bit, yes. A couple of people could praise God. Aristotle said that tolerance and apathy are defining characteristics of a dying society. Now, what did he mean by that? Did he mean that you should be intolerance? Because that's what they call us all the time though. What he meant is when all of a sudden people stop caring about bad things happening around them. That's what he meant. That he was using them as synonyms, tolerance and apathy. And I think this happens far too often. And so since I've been I haven't been controversial enough tonight, so I have to dive right into it. So last week, I was doing my podcast and my radio show. And I said, you know, the left in this country wants people to live in a version of sexual anarchy. People like, what is that? That sounds like a band. Like, it's actually a great band name by the way. Hasn't been taken yet. If anyone has a band, it actually might be it's like the Sex Pistols. It's like sexual anarchy. No, it's very simple, which is that it's this 1960s live. That's antibiotic antichristian anti natural law to do whatever feels good. To indulge in a flash to do every want to do when you want to do it however you want to do it. That doesn't make people free. You will live in a state of anarchy spiritually and personally if you do that. And it's become wildly unpopular to say this out loud, which is why are we having so many issues with students and young people when it comes to this sort of issue is that I don't think we've ever been, I don't think we've been honest enough by saying people that liberty is not doing what you want to do whenever you want to do it. Liberty is doing what you ought to do. And from a Christian biblical perspective, it means standing up and having hopefully the clarity. So you know what? You should reject hookup culture that you should save yourself for one person, loyally marry them and stay in a single relationship with them and say that this is how the Bible wants us to live, and you will be more free because

Terry McAuliffe Struggles to Shore up Democrat Base

"We've got a couple of minutes here to talk about what's going on in the gubernatorial race in Virginia, where Glen youngkin is going up against former governor Terry mcauliffe and, you know, this is an interesting race. It's remained close. I intending to think I'm a little optimistic about this, but of course, Virginia is a fairly blue state these days. Cam you're a virginian. What's going on there? It does young can have a chance here. Yes, I think you can absolutely have this chance. I think the Democrats are very, very concerned. As you say, Virginia has been trending blue, but this is about as optimal a scenario for Republicans as you can find. Democrats have nominated. I think a pretty unpopular guy and certainly a very uninspiring candidate who is not being helped by Joe Biden is dragging him down. Like all of even said that by design popular in Virginia and yet Biden is going to be coming to campaign with Terry mccoll between now and election day. But, you know, Miguel has also bringing in Barack Obama. He's bringing in Stacey Abrams to campaign for him Ed, which tells me that was less than three weeks now before election day. McCollum is still worried about shoring up his base, he's not even hoping right now to try to attract those moderate or independent voters. He's still trying to get black Democrats in Virginia to show up and vote for him because there's a third party candidate on the ballot for instance blanding. Who is running as deliberation party candidates is the first black female to be on the ballot for governor in Virginia. She is very strongly connected to the social justice movement. She's running to the call of left. And I think the mcauliffe is absolutely terrified that she's been able to peel away three four maybe even 5% of the vote both that would have gone to him. And that may be enough, along with what I think has been a pretty good campaign run by when young that might be enough to put junk in an office.

Constitutional Carry Is Now Law in 21 States

"And what's your hottest Second Amendment story right now, cam? Well, I think right now it's the upcoming Supreme Court case. New York State rifle and pistol association versus Bruin, which is going to address the question of whether the right to bear arms actually means anything like the right to keep arms does the Supreme Court answer the question about whether or not we have the right to keep arms in 2008 is the Heller decision, which struck down D.C.'s ban on handguns. And now they're going to be weighing in on the right to carry. They're taking on New York's carry law. So oral arguments are coming up. November 3rd and I'd say as we're getting ready for that to take place, there's a lot of anticipation. That's probably the biggest story out right there right now. And I think that this is a very interesting development because you've got blue states now that are trying to restrict carry more than more than maybe they were in the past. And at the same time, you've got largely red states going the other direction with constitutional carry Texas. Just a month ago became a constitutional carry state. And I believe that that's 26 states. Am I correct on that 26 states? I don't know constitutional carry? I never did 21, 21. I wish we had crossed that halfway point of more than half the country was a constitutional period. Probably going to take another couple of years to get there. But yes, I mean, it is incredible now because just even a decade ago, I think there's a handful of states that said if you can legally own a gun you can legally carry it. Now well over two dozen, there are 42 states that say if you pass a background check and you have undergone your required training, we shall issue UA concealed carry license, but New York, California, New Jersey, Massachusetts, a couple of other states. They have a different view. You can pass the training. You can pass a background check. You can provide the character references that you have to provide in some cases. And still, you can be denied your concealed carry license because you haven't demonstrated a good cause to carry a God. Justifiable need to protect yourself in public. And really, that's the that's the question that's presented to the quarter right now is whether or not these sort of May issue policy that deprived the average American of their ability to bear arms, whether or not these laws are constitutional.

How a Texas School Board Tried to Silence Minister Jeremy Story

"The larger narrative it seems to me is that as a result of what's happened in the country over the last couple of years, we are noticing that school boards are not what we thought they were. They are places of tremendous power, local power. And the people who run them are not doing the job that they're hired to do. This is a particularly horrific example. It's an amazing example. You have 7 kids. You've got skin in the game. You care about the schools in your area. And you are doing your duty as a father and as a minister to try to bring some light to a monstrous sounds like criminal situation. And for that even gets worse. You go ahead. I went to another school board meeting after they carried me out of that one. Which they had no right to do. They literally carried me out while I was making public comments. And before I even got to the stand, the board president tried to keep me from speaking. This is a normal public comment period where they had called me up. And I was testifying and they literally drew me off the stand. The video is all there. But the worst part is I went to another board meeting a month later. And they had stationed police officers outside the doors of the board meeting to guard the doors and they were not letting parents in, which is a violation of the Texas of a meeting Zack. They had taken a 375 person seat auditorium, taken all the seats out of it except for 18 and told people if you did not sit in one of those 18 seats. You were going to be

Minister Jeremy Story Was Arrested for Disorderly Conduct at a School Board Meeting

"Welcome. I have an important story to share with you very important. A number of years ago, I got to meet a friend, Jeremy story here in New York City. He's now a minister in the Austin, Texas area. He wrote me about something that's going on there with regard to school boards. As you know, this stuff lights me up infuriates me sickens me as an American, what is happening. And so I thought, let's get Jeremy on to talk about it. So Jeremy welcome. Thank you for having me today Eric. I appreciate it. Well, I'm glad that you wrote to me. So tell us the story. I mean, the short version is is that I was arrested by a school board unlawfully in order to silence me from speaking. Today, nationally, we hear stories about violent parents and the Biden administration coming against them. But in actuality, there's also another side of that story. And I am that story, as well as another gentleman in our district who was an army captain who was arrested as well. Basically what we were speaking out against Eric was, and what I was speaking out against was I'd been I'd seen how our superintendent was hired in June by a violation of the Texas open meetings act, which means that the several of the board members coordinated behind the scenes to hire the superintendent, which is a fence that carries prison time. And because I spoke out on that, then I was contacted by a lady who explained to me that she had been assaulted by the superintendent. She had been she was pregnant with his child, and he had tried to assault her when she refused to have an abortion. Because he was wanting her to cover up his illicit affair with this woman. And so when she wouldn't do that, he went over to her house and according to her assaulted her. He threatened her via text message prior that he was going to take care of the child if she wouldn't take care of it. And then when she tried to go to the school board to get some help, two school board members tried to help her, the other 5 who had voted for the superintendent ignored her in a couple of them actually notified the superintendent, which then precipitated the assault the

"I'm talking to my friend Jenna Ellis about the news of the day. We're talking about fear mongering. We're talking about vaccine mandates. Can you give us an update since you know a lot about the Supreme Court on what lies ahead? Because it is interesting to have a majority of people that we would consider actual constitutionalists. What do you suppose will happen in the next term? Yeah, it's going to be really fascinating. The new term started October 4th and there are already a few cases on the docket that are going to be argued into November and December that are going to have huge implications on religious liberty on abortion in the United States and on the Second Amendment. They've actually taken up the first Second Amendment case since 2008. And the District of Columbia versus Heller decision. So that'll be interesting and before we get into a couple of these cases, you mentioned, you know, we actually have a majority that are constitutionalists. Well, first, I hope so. And I don't categorize justice Roberts at all. Oh, I was talking about. So we hope to make me laugh. Have at least a 5 four. But what a lot of people say is, well, you know, you're just as activist than as the Democrats. We know that's not true because wanting a conservative majority means we actually understand what the judicial branch is designed for, which is to hold accountable the two political branches and to make sure to preserve and protect our world. Look, we've gotten trapped into this kind of language. The fact of the matter is, if you are not a constitutionalist and originalist, in my mind, you're an

One of the Most Unexpected Side Effects of the Fauci Virus Lockdown

"But one of the most important and unexpected byproducts of the Fauci virus lockdowns was all of a sudden when parents started to walk into their living rooms, walk into the kitchen, and they overheard their kid because the school is locked down on a Zoom class call, and they overheard the garbage and the pablum and the nonsense that was being spewed by teachers that they were paying for. Schools then somewhat opened. Across the country and students were subjected to wearing masks and then vaccine mandates, critical race theory was exposed in the curriculum of hundreds of schools across the country and parents who never cared about education before, made it their 15th or 20th issue to their number one issue. All of a sudden we started to see parents show up to school board meetings across the country, something that we have been celebrating and encouraging. I myself have shown up at a couple school board meetings in the state of Arizona. We have been profiling courageous parents that have been stepping up and it's funny, women calling for this type of movement for years, but it just seems that there was transparency. For the first time, in my ten years of doing this, when all the sudden parents saw for themselves, what their students were learning in classrooms. And I can't tell you how many people have emailed us, and freedom and Charlie Kirk dot com Charlie, you're talking about education for years. I never took it seriously till I saw it myself.

Jon Gruden Resigns as Raiders Coach Over Decade-Old Offensive Emails

"John Gruden has always been kind of a wild child in the NFL always been a little bit of a loose cannon, if you will. And I believe he was also he was also the coach of the Oakland Raiders in like the 90s. And then he went to the Buccaneers and led them to the Super Bowl very complicated. But then he rejoined the Raiders in 2018 after he was an analyst on Monday Night Football. Do you remember those things he used to sit down with the quarterbacks? And it was like Gruden's corner. I've never been a big fan of Jon Gruden. I'll be very honest. One in 2002, that's right, my memory's not too bad. I'm not going to be an apologist for Jon Gruden. Okay? I'm sure he lives a complicated life like most people in the NFL. But this recent saga involving in his resignation slash termination is disgusting. And the national Football Association is in many different ways. In enterprise that is built on a House of Cards. The entire structure of how many of the teams are filed as nonprofits on how almost every stadium is built thanks to taxpayer dollars. There's a lot of corruption that exists in the national football, the National Football League. And so it came out a couple days ago that John Gruden is going to be fired, or it has to speak out for his racist and homophobic emails over ten years ago. And I shrugged my shoulders and I actually didn't know where this one was going to go. Because John Gruden signed a ten year 100 million dollar deal with the Oakland Raiders. And now so he technically resigned whatever he says, I have resigned as the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. I love the Raiders and do not want to be distraction. Thank you to all the players coaches and staff and fan fans of raider nation. I'm sorry I never meant to hurt anyone, John Gruden. And so it was revealed in some of these emails. And based from what I've said, seen should have said something's probably not no, was he joking around in private in a context that none of us can understand? Yes. He incited Joe Biden, insulted Joe Biden I can't even say what he called Joe Biden on air. It's kind of hilarious. Called Roger Goodell, a certain name. I'm no fan of Roger Goodell. So if this whole thing is like a Roger Goodell, apology tour, but here's what really matters. Here's the question. In the National Football League, do they ever allow people to do bad things and continue to participate? Like murder. How about rate Ray Lewis and his legacy of the unsolved double murder? Or how about you remember this one? You remember ray rice, who literally punched his fiance in an elevator? It was an elevator, right? Which gained total notoriety following the indictment he was released by the ravens and suspended, and now rice would be reinstated after he successfully appealed the league's decision. And this whole thing with John Gruden is this question of should you be judged by things you have said in private ten years ago to destroy your current

"I didn't see this story until this morning. And I found it during my before show show prep, which involves talking to Duane. And at that point, I just couldn't believe it. First of all, you got to know. You got to remember the cringe inducing video that vice president Kamala Harris for at least last week with the kids visiting her at the vice president's mansion. So let's play a couple of those clips. Cut number 7, Kamala Harris at the what is the naval observatory in the old days? It's now the vice president residents talking with 6 kids on the porch cut number 7. Do you have a link? Welcome. Thank you. The residents of the vice president. Here we are. Check it out. Okay, so it's kind of cringe inducing. And you think it sort of like a knockoff of the veep series starring Julia Louise Dreyfus. It got worse, by the way, second clip clip number 8. One of the things I most excited about. But the other, you guys are gonna see, you're gonna literally see the craters on the moon with your own eyes. When your own eyes are telling you, it is gonna be unbelievable. So that's one of the things we can do here too, which makes it. So that's okay. The beep doing deep things. From the Washington examiner. The first installment of vice president Kamala Harris's YouTube original space series featured child actors who addition for their roles in the project. Trevor Bernardino a 13 year old actor from Carmel California and one of the 5 teenagers featured in the video was asked to submit a monologue discussing something he was passionate about, and three questions for a world leader. According to an interview with KSW TV, Trevor, then interviewed with the production director. And then after that, like a week later, my agent called me and said, hey, Trevor, you booked it. Trevor said he didn't learn until much later he'd be meeting with the Kamala Harris, who was appointed to lead the national space council earlier this year.

"That's what they should put on. The poster of dances with wolves. Amanda dobbins common big picture. I'd like to keep kevin costner in the exact box in my brain and he's in you know field of dreams nostalgia and that's it love kevin. Costner love him to this day. Do not love every he's ever made okay. Next question is from hannah. Appetite universe is closest to winning an oscar What are the odds and a great forties and fifties runs for any of those guys as actors so. I think. There's an obvious answer to this. But i want to question the premise. A little bit is the appetite universe. Still a thing. Is there still like a fraternity of of guys who were part of that because it feels kind of antiquated now. There hasn't been a movie with all those guys together and like six or seven years. I think you're right. I think they're just trying to identify like a generation of guys who have now actually graduated in their own ways to careers because it was a school for a generation of of comedians and male actors and many of them had continued success in success in different ways. Which is i guess notable apple. How did have a gift for finding talent. No doubt so. I don't know. I don't think it exists anymore. I think you're right. I'm not really sure that that technicality is going to keep me up at night tonight. I've just going to answer this person's question with joan hill. That's the answer joe. Jonas obviously the answer. He guesses next appearing in. Don't look up the next adam mckay movie. That's pretty star studded cast. So it's a little hard to know what level of how big that role is necessarily also just think south rogan is kind of sniffing around the edges of prestigious. All the time as well. I think some people felt like he should have been recognized for his work and steve jobs. I thought he was quite good. As steve wozniak steve jobs. So i wouldn't be surprised by either of those guys. Jason segel has probably made more bids for seriousness. Out of any of those guys in the last four or five years. But it's been mostly in television. And i don't know we'll see any like what what about some shockers you know. What if martin star just came through and gave an incredible performances. Jonas salk the polio vaccine film.

"I would say we still have so much to learn about it. That's what i would say. I mean we we obviously are are going through this but there's a lot of ideas we have You know we went over a few of these with you but some things we didn't do like the keeping of the law. I would love to go through another project and actually try these methods and prove them before we you know. i know. we're getting some advice on this podcast but before truly write a book and you know yeah that makes outsource engineer wants to test everything out. You know eric does try. Does sometimes suggest. I write some sort of book about things. I'm not sure if we'll ever get to that point for now you know we have. I have the real. Adulting is easy website where i write the tips that come up for like from just person general personal finance perspective and there's some real estate in there and then we have a specific site that is for this project and for the vacation rentals where we document every project one by one and post pictures and blog. So maybe someday we'll be able to look back and put a bunch of that together into a book. We probably could come up with an outline. Yes well. I always liked to sign. Books to people just know as an author. I tend to have that habit. But i would have loved to have read your book now before we end. I wanna know what is one thing and try to keep it to a couple of words. What is one thing. Eric that you have learned about lauren. During this process that was a surprise. Okay well i'm gonna fail it. You're keeping it short put when we first walked the property. It was I i couldn't see the in goal. I was like no way. This is terrible. This is this is bad. this is bad as bad. There's no way but she's really impressed. Me and surprised with the vision. She's got an amazing Amazing i for for opportunity in to see the potential on project. Thank you great. That's nice and lauren. What's the biggest surprise that you've learned about eric during this process so i learned. It's a little silly. I learnt. he's really particular about lighting. And so but so. That's kind of the silly thing in the kitchen. He was really really specific about the temperature of the lights. Like a little more yellow than white and putting them under the cabinets and we have some glass front cabinets in there in there and and that is not something that i would have probably thought of and contributed significantly to the beautiful design of the kitchen. So and there's been multiple examples like that where although like he said. I have pretty good vision i can. I can visualize what something can look like. I can visualize where furniture should go in a room and a little better than he can. But i would not project would not be turning out as beautiful as it is without those little touches that he has added like lighting well. I love that. That's perfect kind of complement to each other. That lauren his the vision. So the big picture and eric not surprisingly with the engineering background is really good at details. And it sounds like together. You are really navigating this as best you can. And it's very impressive. So i really am so excited that you would share your process with my listeners. You break money. Silence with me during this renovation and so i wanna make sure that anybody who's listening in that wants to see pictures that wants to follow along with the progress of this project can do so so lauren. Do you want to share a where someone might go to to learn more about this..

"Running list of to do's and questions for contractors and subcontractors we didn't do enough of this and so just a small example. We moved in over the weekend and we realize oh. We need an outlet here and the electric already done and things like that. So it's like well now. We have to ask them to come back and put an outlet in a specific wall. So if you keep a really good list and keep organized also then you don't have to be talking to each other about the project all the time and also calling the different contractors and subcontractors for every little thing yeah that's the only thing i was disappointed in comparing to a commercial project is we have running excel sheets of action items and we have regular meetings to go over these and we've never had a standing meeting with our general i. That was a big mess. I got something we should have requested early on and made a requirement of of our contract. Is that every single week. monday morning. At eight thirty or whenever we have a call be even if it's fifteen minutes and we run over all the items in and check in on progress in budget and everything and not just that just added to stress these unknowns Working with this guy. But yeah i love that idea. I mean these are great concrete tips and i. I love the idea of having a regular meeting. If you can get a contractor to agree to that because i think there are so many little moving pieces the other piece i really like is the sharing of responsibilities. Because when i've talked to other couples who are doing renovations or building a home often it becomes one person feeling put upon as opposed to both of them working as a team and it sounds like you to work as a team pretty well and are able to kind of figure out. How do we do this together. Are there any like if you had to think of one thing that you would say two couples to not do when you are engaged renovation project as couple what would it be. I mean is there one not to do. Well it's it has to do with have your goals at the beginning of the project and then if you kind of document that really well that's like what we have. We have our spreadsheet. We have our list of things that way. You don't make decisions on the fly along the way that might be detrimental. If that makes sense it totally makes sense. So the idea that you know what you're shooting for. You had that conversation agreeing for that vision together before you get into all the nitty gritty. That is involved in this project. Yes like a an organization has a mission statement and core values. So whenever you try to make a decision you go back to those and references and you make decisions based off of those so the same idea for project you have your overall mission statement your goals any little decision along the way you reference those and based off those. Yeah also i would say..

"So what happens when it doesn't go well like you aren't on the same page even if it's short term like as a couple how do you manage that because it's bound to come up in life and in marriage and certainly. When you're renovating an old house will learn makes the call. I like you eric. You're the contractors will be like. where's the boss. Well i learned pretty quickly on. I not to make a decision without getting lawrence. Sign off on it. Yeah and it's not like it's not like have a big blow up about it. We just have to go back to our. Why does this help us in our goals. Are we doing improvements to the home. That will also add equity to the home. You know i would say. I think that's pretty much it in what comes to mind for me as the idea that when you are renovating a home even buying a home it can be so emotional because we get emotionally attached to what it might look like what it might be. You know what place we might be in. And so it sounds like lauren. Your role not saying eric. You get to the more emotional part. I'm just saying lauren. Your role seems to be like okay. Let's get back to the spreadsheet. Let's get back into our what. I your rational mind Because what i find is that when people are too much in their emotional mind when they're doing a renovation that that's where the budget can go crazy and it sounds like you have a nice balance of figuring out. How do we stay on track. And how do we make mindful decisions now talking about money like you do you. Obviously as a couple will show up in a podcast called breaking money silence which is not what every couple would do especially in the middle of a renovation a so it sounds like you might engage in financial conversations regularly. Anyway do you think that ability to talk about money has been helpful in this process and if so what are the tips that you might offer other people listening in today. That are either considering. A project like this Or might want to throw it out at dinner one night to their partner and say hey. I've always wanted to renovate one hundred year old home. Here's what i learned on breaking money. Silence yeah we talk we definitely do talk about money Pretty much daily..

"Obviously it is disconcerting to see your bank account going down over time however when we bought the house we really did Do a pretty good job of getting quotes up front and we also negotiated the price down by about fifty thousand Based on the inspection and things like that so We are gonna be about fifteen percent over budget but truly it's because of choices that we are making for example Getting nicer fence or getting more mature trees in the yard than initially planned so financially. It's hard to see the bank account going down but thank goodness. We are pretty much right on budget in terms of our spreadsheet. Yeah and i'd like to add that to. I don't know that we can necessarily separate schedule and budget becau- or financial stress. Because every month that passes and this project isn't completed we're losing potential rental income so i mean we had a plan to start renting out in what it was this this november area And now that's not going to happen. So i mean we've lost a month of income. Yeah so that's a good point because the just a little background on the house. It's like a three bedroom. Two and a half bath home. And then there are two vacation cottages vacation rental cottages in the back so We were until last week. Living basically in the back we moved into the house but there is still work going on and there needs to be worked now done to the back units so that's a great point areas that you know we're losing you know maybe around one hundred bucks a day on potential rental income or so i would say yes so that It sounds beautiful. The property sounds beautiful and in terms of i think in the long run. What i'm hearing is that you're making some choices in the long run. That's gonna pay off in the short run pain of losing that potential rental income. Offsets that now it is clear that you too have had conversations about money and about this project so i would love to know what those conversations entailed and how. That's been helpful to both of you into your marriage as you sit here right now. Knee deep in the middle of the project. Yeah obviously as we talked about before part of the reason we literally bought. The home was financially motivated. Right over time we've become more and more financially minded which started with you know books like rich dad. Poor dad your money or your life and then onto the bigger pockets real estate books and we really started to get our. Why in place. And that's retiring early. We don't we don't have a date or anything like that and we're certainly not like the fire movement where we live off of almost nothing so that we can really live when we retire anything but we wanted to turn our home into at least somewhat of what Robert kiyosaki calls an asset with. That's actually generating money rather than we're just spending money on it. So we've made really conscious decisions and had a lot of conversations about the importance of not over improving the home and we also have negotiated hard on the price we get a lot of contractor quotes so in all along like i said we've had our spreadsheet to keep us on track so we definitely have been doing a lot of check ins with the budget and That way at least if we are going over budget doing things like putting in a vinyl fence that will last a lot longer than a wood fence which might have originally thought we might get and budgeted four They're informed decisions..

"I know for myself and our project that got a little tricky one hundred year old home as well and i just fell in love with the charm of it. So i'm curious with you. Youtube has the dream or you know the idea of doing this together once you had that conversation made that decision has the dream matched up with reality. Or what has that process been like for you create question and definitely. When we first fell saw. The home were i could see the vision. It fixed up and everything like that. And we're just starting to see everything. Come together now and i do believe the home is. The home itself is matching up with expectations of really truly is going to be beautiful as for the process itself. We were naive in that. We thought we were going to hire an overall contractor and he or she was going to manage the project. And all the subcontractors and we've done more managing in hand holding than. I personally thought we would. Eric probably has a different take on that his he's had. He's an engineer so he works on projects. Yeah absolutely. I mean in in my experience. A larger commercial projects like your contractors are more accountable to deadlines to getting things done and getting things done correctly. And so far in this experience i you know hand holding babysitting i mean. Are they here. When they say they're going to be here. D- they do the job correctly. Did they cutting corners. Did they cover are beautiful floors. You know did they damage something. Did they clean up their mass. Just i thought the general contractor was gonna take more of a hold on the project and beer actually quite frankly more often and And really manage the subs but we found ourselves in the position. Where we're doing a lot of that a lot of that work. One of the things. I would jump in at erica's is the idea that your engineering background must be. And also i think anyone who does construction..

"Is easy dot com as a repository for knowledge while she was educating herself about personal finance and then her first blog kind of grew from there. She's married to eric almond. Who is a fire protection engineer. He has a background in mechanical engineering. So he shares that with my husband's and together they have a passion for real estate today. We're going to be talking specifically about renovating a hundred nineteen year old bed and breakfast in tarpon springs florida. I want to welcome you both to the podcast today. Thank you so much for having us kathleen and we're right on brand here. We are in the home right now. So if you hear any hammering or drilling we have to apologize. The renovation is happening as we speak. Love that though. That's great so you are moving forward with this project. I have to tell you before we get into learning a little bit more about your project that there's two things that came to mind before our interview for me one. Is that one of my favorite movies. And i'm gonna date myself is called the money pit. It's nineteen eighty six movie So i truly am gen-xer and it. Starred tom hanks and shelley long and it was about a renovation and how it can lead to couples in conflict and hijinks and so when i went on in my own life with my own husband to do a renovation We actually looked a lot like the money pit. We got out of it on the other side. we survived. Our relationship was stronger. But it made me really curious as to how you two are handling this project both in terms of stress as well as the financial impact in the conversations that you need to have so. Why don't we just start with one of you or both of you telling me a little bit more about the project and why the heck you decide to renovate a home that has one hundred nineteen years old a great question and we sound crazy but here we go so we decided actually to move for three different reasons One we needed a home with two offices early in two thousand twenty even actually before the corona virus. We were both working from home and sharing an office. So we could have a guestroom and so we decided that that really wasn't working anymore. We wanted to have two offices as well as guest space. On the second reason we wanted to be able to walk out our front door at the end of the workday. We felt really cooped up both working from home. So we wanted to relocate. We had more to do right after the workday that didn't involve getting in the car and getting into rush hour traffic and things like that and we also wanted our primary residence to have the potential to generate income. So we wanted to do what some people call house hacking where you live in one part of the property and rent out other parts of it so for those three reasons we ended up deciding on tarpon springs and then from there once.

"Done more harm than good I realized that I've heard people. And I want to do better and I'm trying to learn kind of along side you and of course, you know you can share resources. I hate when I like even in Brooklyn nine nine, which is show I love There's a joke about like, oh, I got this email and that email and a slightly racist email from my older relative like something funny like ha ha those old folks but let's just remember and maybe this comes from my Chinese side but old folks are smart or smarter than us and they can unlearn racism. Absolutely. Just as they share around, they're racist jokes. So can we will not share the racist jokes but we share our perspectives we can share articles and books and tools and videos that help them to see other perspectives like if you're like me on your on any Caribbean WHATSAPP group every morning, you like different prayers and stuff like that. Won't you know what? intersperse. With some other resources as well and let let them know that it's it's not cool and your social feed does that right? It's not just virtue signaling because those people are watching and listening and they're learning from you. So this this is going to go on a lifetime. and. I was also wanting to bring up one other thing we ended up talking longer than I expected I. thought this would be kind of a shorter one, but I think it's also important to remember that dating or marrying or having a kid. With. A person of color. Or with black person if you are a person of color because anti black racism is so extreme and anti indigenous racism as well. So don't assume dating or marrying a person of color makes you less racist or less accountable? Actually, it should make you more accountable and that proximity to blackness or Brown nick or asianise is no shield at all against the racism the subtle racism schism that's ingrained in our upbringings right? Just you know it's like me as a Chinese person I, don't understand the experience of a black person I can only learn and listen and so yeah, I just think it's important to note that you know no matter what we do. We can't ask for cookies like fighting for basic human rights is just basic human decency. It's not an act of heroism like you know if you look in movies, there's always like the kind of white hero who speaks out against an absurdly inherently racist system and so I guess you know as we share our experiences. What's most important is that you know if you WANNA support your partner, you have to ask them how they WANNA be supported because I can't speak for anyone but.

Embarrassed that I've said I need to be called out I need to be slapped in the face with some of the things that I've done and Jackie slapped I hope it's not i. Don't know what that is. Google it. But yeah I mean the ball smashing the face. So if that's your thing rock and roll but. I do know that over the years over the last number of years. There is a lot of my family that we don't see anymore and a big reason for that is because of the values in the beliefs and the actions that they've taken. That honestly make me feel uncomfortable being around them and and this is the first time I've said that and if they are listening then they'll know. And and you know. How do you move forward from this like we would need To have a conversation somebody who need to. Express. I don't even know what I would be I'd be looking for a reason to say, okay why is it safe for us to come back into the space? Right and I guess if you are hearing either subtle or blatantly racist talk from family members and I think like blatantly racist talk I think is easier to to call out. But some of the more subtle stuff like that you've you know I've heard about you know my race bringing the neighborhood values down in some of that nonsense I think people need a reminder that you have a right to speak up and I also think you have a responsibility. So you can you kind of if you hear your someone in your family talking this way? Can you ask them? Why in what? Like what? What would make you say something like that? What makes you think that it's true and then maybe talk a little bit about what it is and and. And you know you don't have to get angry at them, and in fact, your anger might be useless, right? It's really about you have this opportunity to. Tear down some of.

"Because they felt bad over over the the racist comments that were made and they made they may so they fat 'cause you call them out on their racist and code, and so instead of the person who was hurt by the racism that would-be me crying the person who was racist ended up, crying their tears to bring the focus back to themselves during themselves, and then of course I'm placating I'm making them feel better rather than just saying, no, it's awkward. You deal with it. You figure out your stuff this matters to me and you know if that were to happen today I wouldn't I I know that I would see what's happening and I would say. You, this isn't on me but I'm. I'm reflecting back over the years and the things that I have that I haven't said, and as a white person, the ability shoe. Other. White people just assume that they're your bro immediately I can tell you and I don't know if we've ever talked about this but I remember and again this isn't me getting mad at you for not creating a safe space although I'm glad we're having the conversation I remember someone near family saying like Oh you're I don't remember how it came up a though you're went to an almost all white school and you were Chinese So the guys must've gone crazy for you or you must think words were you must have been such a delicacy and that's the second time in my life that I've only had two white partners but that a white partners family has called me that a delicacy pretty sure I'd lost my mind if you'd heard that you're right but I I shouldn't even be in that environment and and it's on me to to know. How do I say it like I was saying before and I know I'm rambling a little but you raised as this model minority raise to just kind of keep your head down and fit in. You don't speak up you laugh at those jokes because. Even though they make you uncomfortable. You don't WanNa make other people uncomfortable on that comes from both race and gender and Yeah I. think There's something that I'm learning about myself if I reflect on my whole life. There were always things that made me. Feel uncomfortable that didn't sit right with me and I never had the language to describe it, and like some of that has to do with severe resum like going rich people going into a country and trying to like save a community and taking pictures like. with, with the locals who are usually either Brown or black, and it's just one white person in the photo with all of these locals and and again, I don't want people to. Stop, listening, and feel judged I'm just telling you that that's always sat as uncomfortable for me never had the language around it. I just knew that it didn't feel right I remember even people joking about like wanting to get like adopt an Asian baby 'cause Asian. Babies are so cute and again it's probably something I just kind of laughed at and was like Oh yeah. Asian. Babies are cute I was adorable but. Now, I look back and I'm like, okay I see all the Savior Ism in this and it's it's the same within the family where these things that have been said to me I remember another. Person In another family. So like I said, I had one other white partner in my life and I was young and she's like, Oh, you're Jamaican and she said I went to Jamaica. It's so hard there because white women and she used the word delicacy as well. She said I'm like a delicacy down there for them and I was I remember being like really young and just rolling my eyes in my head but also wanting to fit in with this family and so I think that I bring this all up and share my story..

"And being harassed on the subway even just women not feeling safe like having to change the way we dress. So that on a nice walk on a sunny day, we don't have to deal with harassment. So there's an emotional exhaustion that comes with that, and then you arrive at work you arrive at a conversation or you arrive at a relationship already kind of worn down if that makes sense. Yeah I mean it completely makes sense and. You you mentioned a couple of years or however long ago. It was when I had that shift in attitude I remember vaguely the conversation where you said, you take it upon yourself to learn don't rely on me and don't rely on others and that's when I did start reading very smart brothers and the route and reading I remember reading Michael Harriet, and you know his his weekly or monthly clapback a section. And starting to recognize the daily trusses ities and the daily. and. That was what was so surprising because it's not covered, it's not talked about and you start seeing these things that seem ridiculous and how frequently they happen and how they're not reported, and that's when I started realizing that this is. The this is mind blowing for again as somebody who can. Close his eyes and go through his life. Without ever having. To, worry about being oppressed or being discriminated against and it was like. Wile like wake up start paying attention right and I don't know if it makes you more aware I think about in relationships. I always want to feel like I'm walking into a safe space, and so there have been times where you know I I've been subjected to either subtle racism and I've always known that you'd stand up to those people..

"Experience of a black person's GONNA be entirely different and you know within the Chinese culture and I've seen it in my family. I'm anti black racism also exists and I know that there's a lot of talk right now of language. Around people of Color But when we mean black, we should say black if we're specifically talking about black lives mattering, we can use black as opposed to just the more general term people of color because people of color can be racist to and people of color like me can benefit from racial oppression I fall on the side of of privilege in many ways. But. The other thing is you and I ran into this years ago Another important piece besides listening is being willing to learn from your partner but also not asking them to be a teacher, and so you you know to be an ally or to be an accomplice meaning someone who looks to tear down the systems of oppression not just stand in not stand as an ally but to really. Fight against systems that continue to oppress. it's an ongoing process. You have to do the work yourself as well. You can read, you can google you can subscribe to different publications. You can do a workbook like me and white supremacy because if you're turning to your partner at every turn for information or validation it's important to remember that you know they can arrive at every conversation already tired I think a lot of people are saying, right Now, this is a really hard time for for black folks or other people of Color, but it's not an especially difficult time. It's always been hard black folks have a history of being oppressed. The only part that's really changed is that now more non black people are talking about it or changing their instagram profile or trying to center voices, and hopefully we're keeping you know our foot on the pedal as they say. Yes even sitting here listening to you I'm I'm analyzing how I'm feeling this conversation and if I had to admit to this, even Alec I am uncomfortable like I am uncomfortable having this conversation I think about..

"With Dr. Jasser podcast I'm your co host Brandon. Wear here with my lovely other half. Hey, doing today babe. I'm good. How are you? Feeling good. We had a weekend away in our nation's capital. A lot of people who aren't Canadian don't know that our capital is Ottawa. They either think it's Toronto or as non-canadians say Montreal. More. Real Montreal. But your nation capital nation's capital Ottawa is Ottawa and we were in town for the weekend enjoying the city mostly enjoying one of the parks nearby Gatineau Park, we did a number of big hyphen and went swimming and paddle boarding. So I'm feeling pretty good to have gotten out of the city. Agree weekend. It was a beautiful city. Access to parks the downtown core not so busy knows quiet. Yeah it was. It was very, very quiet. It's it's a pretty city. They have all the old beautiful parliament buildings in the old. Library, and Supreme, court of Canada and all those things but it is a it's a smaller city even though it's our nation's capital. Yes I would agree but at the real advantage and what makes me so drawn to it even over the course of the weekend I kept saying I think I. Could live in Ottawa is the fact that their fifteen minutes from getting know park, which is fabulous for hiking and skiing and swimming, and exploring and all that jazz. This is my second time and get to know this year I mean I never go there but I had a GIG this year in February and went on some winter hikes but it was nice to be back with you. You do on those winter hikes. Amazing. Yeah. Really. What do you mean because it's it could be. I'm trying to think of the conversion of temperatures it could be sixty, five degrees and. And you're freaking out about how you're freezing cold. It's the coldest day of your life. I know it was much colder than sixty five. It was all snowy when I was there we're talking back in February generally I'm a human heating machine rarely I cold or at least I, think rarely no enjoyed the winter hike you were always cold. So I'm surprised that you felt okay you know what it was I was in town just for the day basically and I I when I'm traveling for work member those long days I remember seems like so long ago when I'm traveling for Work I. was like to do something fun. So I went on this call hike and reminded me that. We needed to get back to get you know. So I'm glad I'm glad we did this weekend if oh, good to kind of just escaped from the House and be in a in a different a different environment and they're taking physical distancing very, very, very seriously in Ottawa like I was so impressed with the cafes and coffee shops and you you actually stood six to seven feet away from the register and they ran the wire for the credit card machine so that you didn't even have to go within six feet of the and they had big partitions up onto the doing much better job than Toronto. Even terms of an I can't speak for all the stablishment but even just. Flow of traffic through.
