'Mike Holmes' rants? I'll start...
Hi, all - been a long time since I chimed in, but I've been periodically lurking.. So much has gone wrong, here, there are at least a dozen (more important) reasons I should have been posting for several months...
But, this guy! (WHY do I keep watching? WHY do I have my dvr set to record this "Holmes Inspection"? Argh!).ÃÂ
Anyone else watch this show? I just watched part of one - I usually get angry & stop before show ends - a part of pipe had asbestos insulation.. Ok,ÃÂ that would have to be tested & removed due to tv show's liability if nothing else, (& I do recognize theÃÂ insulation is serious stuff)... ÃÂ So, they have a testing company come in... & results are that asbestos is in everything??? Including the OLD PLASTER. ÃÂ Now I have THAT to worry about? They had to gut the wholeÃÂ house, spacemen & all manner of nuclear holocaust fallout drama.ÃÂ
I've 2 little boys, here, ages 4 & 11 - both have lived here since birth. I worry! ÃÂ All the time! Lead here? Asbestos there? Then I watch this guy, & he's so convincing! Sounds so knowledgeable!ÃÂ
I watch, I snort with derision, I (secretly) worry...ÃÂ
So, anyone else have a Mike Holmes "rant"? Is he a jackass? Am I a naive fool? Little bit of both, lol???
And... (here I go), anyone else, um, heard of old house plaster containing asbestos fibers???? (just asking....).ÃÂ
