Will Home Services Be Replaced By Drones and Robots in 20 Years?

Imagine it’s twenty years in the future, we’re in the year 2041 and you need a new retaining wall installed by stone mason. This home service, among many others, might be served by robots rather than humans. Imagine it!

You call up the company and a robot voice answers, “What can we help you with?”

You answer, “I’d like a cost estimate for a retaining wall.”

The robot books a time and a week later shows up to knock on your door. It may look cute, it may be ghastly, but it’s been specifically designed by scientists to be adept at stone masonry, and since it works for free of course your local stone masonry company bought it. The same would be for your local appliance repair or roofing company. Robots everywhere, doing your landscaping, your aquarium cleaning, etc.

But then there’s a scarier thought: What if all those local human-run businesses were replaced by robots too, government controlled or something! Instead of calling a company like Roofing Victoria for a shingle repair, you might be using an app to summon a robot from a major corporation. Think of it!

In a free market, whoever is the company to have a line of robotic home service experts first will be able to dominate the market, not just locally but nationally or internationally as drones from the hub base could fly in all the materials and robots to get any job done in a fraction of the time and cost it would take small, human-run businesses today.

But maybe this isn’t such a scary thought, depending on your outlook. I actually doubt something like this would happen in the next twenty years, but maybe the next few hundred years for sure. If it does happen, it’ll be sad to remember all the historical humans who were once masters of their crafts, helping other humans.

What do you think? Let me know because I’d love to chat about it.

Installing an Outdoor Fireplace – Should You Do It?

Welcome to the blog all about cool stuff related to appliances. Although most people might not consider an outdoor fireplace to be an appliance, we do because at a friend’s summer home in West Vancouver BC they use their outdoor fireplace like an oven whenever they visit on vacation. The major difference from an outdoor fireplace and an indoor kitchen oven, however, is that when your oven breaks down you hire an appliance repair technician but when your outdoor fireplace needs repairs you usually need to hire a stone mason or bricklayer to fix it.

If you’ve never experienced cooking with an outdoor fireplace before, let this post serve as inspiration for you to install one on your own property.

3 Reasons Why Every Home Owner Should Have an Outdoor Fireplace

outdoor fireplaces
  1. Outdoor fireplaces are a great collecting ground for the family to gather. The living room in homes traditionally functions as a gathering space for family members, but only because they don’t have an outdoor fireplace. When you have a gazebo around it with comfortable chairs, it’s possible to stay warm even in winter and cook marshmallows in your own backyard.
  2. If you’re one who loves company, having an outdoor fireplace will make all your friends want to come over. Combine good music with beautiful landscaping and your outdoor fireplace will be a desirable destination for events among your friends. At my friend’s backyard in their West Vancouver summer home, for example, they had a wedding there. Lot’s of preparation was needed to host a whole wedding there, though. They hired a masonry Vancouver BC contractor to widen the outdoor fireplace and replace much of their grass with paving to fit more chairs and make the area more comfortable. So keep in mind you may have to do something similar if you wish to turn your backyard into a place where friends can host events.
  3. Having an outdoor fireplace is a way to escape from all the electronics of modern society. We’ve discussed before about the problem of there being too many electronics in our world today, so let this be a solution. And let me tell you there’s nothing like being able to escape from the modern world in your own backyard. When you go out in the yard at night to look at the stars and kick your feet up by the fire, you may feel transported back into a historical time before electricity was invented.

These were my 3 reasons why you should get an outdoor fireplace, but we could continue to add more and more reasons. Reasons like they add value to your property if you sell your home in the future. But let this be enough, for these reasons were enough to convince my own household to call up a masonry contractor and get a cost estimate. Seriously consider this because they make home-time with the family all that much better, raising the quality of life for everyone in your home.

Paying for Appliance Repair with Cryptocurrencies

Today we want to talk about something very exciting. It may be because appliance repair technicians are a little more prone to loving technology than most other people, but I’ve been hearing a lot of talk among appliance repair companies, at least in Canada, about accepting certain cryptocurrencies for payment. Ad it’s not just appliance repair companies talking about this, it’s every kind of business.

Here at Ca1dmat.org, we’re highly delighted about this because we believe every business who adopts cryptocurrency too late will not be able to benefit from the explosion in popularity that small businesses are getting by announcing that they now accept crypto as payment.

If you’re a business owner wondering if you should follow suit, let us mention that there are crypto coins that are stable at the price of the US dollar. Such coins are USDT and BUSD. By accepting these coins, there is no risk that you will lose money because they always hover at the same price.

More on this topic soon!

Too Many Electronics?

Are there too many electronics in modern society? That’s the question we’ll be exploring today. Thanks for tuning in.

First of all, before I say everything cliché and progressive that you might expect, let me play devil’s advocate and defend electronics in modern society for a moment.

To capture the theme, answer this question for yourself: How different would coping with the COVID pandemic of 2020/21 would have been if we didn’t have electronics to work from home or keep us busy indoors?

Certainly, nearly a hundred years ago we could have used pen and paper combined with the mail and transport systems to work many intellectual jobs from home but without electronics many of us would be forced to leave the house and risk our health during a pandemic in order to work our jobs.

Now we also can’t deny the unfortunate aspects of tech-dependent generations taking over all of society’s responsibilities as Baby Boomers retire more and more each year. Indeed, I really mean “tech-dependent”. I know many young people who haven’t sent a physical letter in the mail their whole lives. In a case of having no electricity, these types of people would enter a chaotic state and might starve to death fairly quickly, as thanks to technology they have no hunting skills, no gardening skills and truly rely on electronics to survive. A hundred years ago, if you needed electronics to survive at a young age, you would be considered a fool and a coward of the highest degree.

Therefore, an easy solution to this problem would be to simply have summer camps for kids that focus on teaching them of the pioneer way of life. No electronics all summer! Kids who learn how to cook with a fire and live without electricity will have an upper-hand when they’re adults, so consider this if you’re a parent.

Last but most importantly for your own sake, answer this: “Do you rely on electronics to survive?”

An Appliance Repair Victoria BC Worker Speaks Out Against Woke Cancel Culture at Uvic

Young girls and boys once dreamed of going to university where they can discuss freely their opinions and learn objective truths. But, today, poor children who see the disasters that have taken over campuses across North America would rather work typical jobs than go to post-secondary school because they’re disgusted by the woke rebels who are holding knowledge hostage today.

In Victoria BC, an appliance repairman is concerned for his daughter’s future. His daughter once dreamed of going to law school to defend freedom of speech in Canada. But at the University of Victoria, all of her friends from high school have turned into her enemies as they make fun of her on social media for having conservative views. Cancel culture has gotten so out of hand that they preach against bullying while bullying at the same time and they are too blinded by their own lies to see how uneducated their choices are. It’s ironic and sad that institutions that once bred educated peers now breeds woke justice warriors that would rather complain on social media than do any hard work for themselves.

Today, a worker from a company called The Appliance Repair Pro, that specializes in appliance repair Victoria BC services, spoke out against the University of Victoria (Uvic) for brainwashing several friends of the family this morning. To quote, they said: “My friend’s daughter was raised in a wealthy family and was treated well her whole life, but after one gender studies class at Uvic she now thinks she’s a victim and refuses to learn anything truthful about Canadian history because she thinks all of history is now a lie. I don’t know what teachers at Uvic told here, but this needs to stop right now.”

Moreover, most concerning of all, the worker/parent had this to say: “Now, my own daughter saw all this and refused to go to Uvic because of it. She refuses to go to any university that ‘disrespects the foundation of its own civilization.’ I love her for it, but I’m also sad because she now wants to follow in my foot steps and have a career in appliance repair rather than go to school. I really wish things were different, because I never dreamed my daughter would have the same boring job as me fixing appliances. She deserves better for how smart she is. She is the new justice warrior, in my opinion, calling for justice against woke cancel culture. Well, I guess she has that freedom to do as she pleases, and that’s what she’s trying to protect by doing this in first place.”

This is a wake up call to all parents who have kids who will be going to university in North America within the next few years. If you don’t want to risk your children becoming brainwashed, woke justice warriors, consider waiting will dangerous university ideologies are quelled before sending your kids away. If more people spread awareness about this, perhaps we can see universities going back to doing what they were designed to do by a couple of years. Right now, sending your kids to university would be a waste of money and would actually have the opposite of the intended effect. They won’t become educated, they’ll become brainwashed by professors who behave like religious fanatics. And we’re not afraid, unlike them, to admit the truth of this matter. So…

Canadian Small Businesses Working Together

It’s now the year of 2021 and the world is so different. From competing like cutthroat thieves in the early Wild West of business in the 1800s–where railroads meant gold and backstabbers had no mercy–to, well, this. It’s 2021 and history has never been nicer. Now is the time to grow, now is the time to share, and if you think otherwise then you haven’t studied Canadian small business history. Despite COVID-19, the times have never been better for business growth in Canada. Bring innovation, bring hard work, bring technology, bring science and the opportunities are limitless.

So than you to every small Canadian business that has decided to be kind to their competition. Businesses that grow together grow faster and larger.

I see appliance repair companies helping landscaping companies, and stone masonry companies helping tow truck and auto detailing companies. I see tree service companies helping kitchen remodeling companies and so on and so on. It’s really quite amazing to see.

And I hope to see a lot more of it as we move deeper into this glorious year of 2021!

No Rock Concerts Due to COVID-19? How Concert Lovers can Cope….

Today’s post is sharing a strategy for concert lovers on how to cope during quarantine times. We’ve missed many great rock concerts in the past week because of this pandemic, but here is something we’ve been doing to cope and you can do it to!

The answer is simple. We’ve been having our own rock concerts at home. With our powerful speakers, we’ve invited our closest friends for an old school house party. We play everything from Dio and Metallica to The Beatles and Michael Jackson. We play the music really loud with lighting effects to give the illusion when our eyes are closed that we’re in a real concert, and we dance like we’re in a concert to.

Who thought some old appliance repair technicians in Canada could be so good at ricking?

California Therapist Requires Therapy After Becoming Appliance Repairman

This is a news article brought to you by our new content author. Welcome to our new and updated website. We’ve shifted focus from therapy in California to electronics and appliance repair services in all of North America. This news segment about one of our staff will help to explain why.

Being a therapist is often hard as you hear lots of problems in the world. Sometimes this leads to therapists needing therapy, and that’s exactly what happened to one of the best on our team and that’s why he is where he is today. Welcome to Jack’s story of how he went to being a therapist in California to an appliance repair technicians in Toronto.

One day while giving therapy to a client, Jack realized he didn’t know how to help his client. That night, amazed and disappointed with himself, he realized he needed help himself. After trying to give therapy to himself, alongside a little prep talk to remind himself that he is a good therapist, he came to the conclusion that he needed more hands-on work in his life.

That is when he decided to go and fix the freezer in the basement with his hands. The freezer had been broken for nearly a year and after repairing it he felt a lot better. Now he knew this kind of work is what made him happy, so he set off to become a proper appliance technician after taking some electrical courses in college. He moved to Toronto to live with his brother in order to get on his feet after this new career switch and now he is doing great there, working for a good appliance repair company.

But recently, after feeling regret for switching his career, thinking it was cowardly, he got therapy again and continues to go there. I hope you see the irony in this because it proves that running away from your problems is no way to fix them. Now he faces is inner demons head on and is doing much better.

Thanks for reading and come back soon. For more information on why we shifted gears toward this topic, click here. We wish you all the best!
