And I have a guest with me today my exiting from the Dole's home and Garden Show and Mike I am just looking at the tech's board. And you have been at this is known as Zeke and Africa not not my exiting. So. That yeah that's I'm I'm I'm actually that's kind of a nickname I've had for a long time ever since as a young kid. It was slow it was handled wrestling coach actually start on the easy I love that Como ya Allah he said by the time like he's been my name out I was in. Have yet to showed up and called it something else. You see I'm Mike. Who have given the men like that every car you Zeke coming I have some friends like that as Aqua Combs he sometimes.

I'd got distracted Louis post talk more about the we actually here we talk about the 62 home in Gordon show. And in the superdome it's this weakens Friday Saturday and Sunday. But in addition to that world start with a great things that speaker new walls hobos association. Does for a community in our industry and now we're talking with chalk or so about that and were specifically the build. SOS program so. They chalk are really wanna. Bringing bring you back to the conversation but also talk specifically just. Give me a 22 highlight of folks are just tuning in right now what is billed SOS in there's a few other things that you wanna discuss in reference to. Being a resource for the folks. Who have recently suffered. Damage from the disasters of flooding and tornadoes and and the few of the things we're always faced with Fisher right we are British right around a corner from another potential. A situation where we need to help the community specifically to be building in new construction. That's correct although build up so has become an advocate. Whitley post disaster recovery system. Of blown global solutions. Professional services. For flood victims or tornado victims any disaster. We applying our principles. Primarily we become the boys for the homeowner. Well for the contractor. Of income in connection with their insurance company and their mortgage lender. To be able to take all the barriers Al. Of the flow of money which is the lifeblood of the air recovery. I just wanted to add real quick that. You know one thing that we have found out he discovered and in many of the flood victims. Will understand what I'm about races slaves. It's not as simple. And as calling your insurance company and in giving money. To pay your contractor who. You know you're contractors organized armed scarce and gonna become more scared simply don't have the funds to play there. You know Troy Aikman. There and there are personnel. You know the materials etc. So almost sort of project and then in the end in a few weeks after the news on Yugoslavia's contractor. Because there's a paying job down the street. So what I wanna societies. About bills is that the insurance companies and the mortgage lenders are very. So vital. To the successful post disaster recovery. But they did their systems or many cases antiquated. They have created communication barriers. On our communications maintenance. Where homeowners and heard the black hole dead ends and increased frustration. Trying to get answers. Two win that in my getting via the money but I pay for coverage. All the money that I have been an Oklahoman want to give banking unit and restored the asset value of it. It's instead has been delayed. By antiquated systems of communication. By these entities now you know we advocate with bill you know we know moments sale they apparently want to serve their customer. But we have found out through years of experience and these issues. That you know there as a barrier. To recovery. By non responsive and and antiquated delivery systems. You know to make that that customer whole another word. Their priority of helping. You know has forgotten their customers are. And and so I'm just you know waiting at a bill here and revel in the toward. But if there're any insurance companies in the mortgage lenders are out there. You know you got some people hurting. Hundreds of thousands of people hurting. And want their families to be you know in situations where they can expedite. Getting their family back in their own. They're all our 5680. A licensed or registered contractors in the state of Louisiana. But most of moral. To the flood recovery because lol lack of funding. And so what I'm really saying to the community the consumer. Everybody involved in the heat recovery. You know please. Review your systems. You know streamline.

That is neat you know speaking of different you actually have something new that's has shown this year that most folks may think hey Matt how all of this today and that's the beating. War yes home Julia Roberts we actually found a there's a a television show called Louisiana for open move to new program that's been that's that's come out. And it's filled locally and they are going to be doing live. See it live but it's it's a live auctions but they're going to be filming for the television show so you can come down to get on on national television show. Indeed in our our auction bidding audience. Don't necessarily have to didn't and get the house but. We are actually auctioning off a house in the show this year. With the blues uniform and.

Have a system of free bushes and trees in your your girl on your even when your annuity if you macondo. That you'll be able to eat fruit fresh fruit grown in your backyard almost all year long. Their plants that are that are indigenous to the area and they do well in the southern climate and they're going to be doing. Seminar on how we go about doing it's it's it to me it's fascinating because them I'm very interested them. Big locally grown and if you can grow your own vegetables and growing room through. It's it just took. India actions that something it's so important because it could be container grown for the folks that don't have a big art or maybe just a rooftop or balcony. You know or also in the ground as well. Yes absolutely seat could they've got systems that they've really thought through well in them and really looking for the summer because. If you've got the room. To do treason and lots of trees you can lots of different variety of fruit and they can be it can be there all year for you harvest. One or if you got some feel that small like Illumina Condo. I'm very interested in doing some small bushes Marbury. And Bush's all along and that I can conference from.

Now also one thing going to mention this is even if you're not in the middle of your project if you're not build another house or you're not doing their kitchen remodel that bathroom model. You're just thinking about doing it. This is a great place just to get ideas. Just just to look around and see what's on the market.

You know and another one of the twos it is if you and your wife has sort of different ideas of what you want but you have a hard time and I hasn't looks like hey that happens or I can imagine that. This is a great place to come and even if you do just dreaming about it.
