Throwback Thursday: News Recap August 7, 2014

If you have been reading the W.L. May Blog but haven't checked us out on FacebookTwitter or Google+, you may not be getting the whole story. We use all of those social media outlets to share news stories that relate to our industry as well as appliance tips we have found from other sources. Here is a recap of some of the top stories we have seen lately. A lot has been happening so without further ado:

We start with some consumer friendly articles we feel would be great for sharing:
  • A tale of a refrigerator that stops acting up when the repairman shows up, and how the repairman handles it. Great story until the close. Mr. Journalist, give Repairman Steve another chance...LINK
  • If your customers like the convenience of laundry detergent packs, please encourage them to handle them safely. LINK
Next, we look at appliance manufacturers who have been in the news recently:
  • Appliance manufacturers dispute Class-Action lawsuits over energy star ratings. LINK
  • Whirlpool is reported to be shipping a heat pump clothes dryer late this year. LINK
  • A look at the Kitchenaid mixer Factory in Greenville, OH (By the way-we stock parts for these mixers.) LINK
We found several articles that might be of interest to those of you who love all thing appliances:
  • This N.Y.Times fashion writer judges men by the contents of their refrigerators. LINK
  • Apparently, washing machines are used to make edible marijuana products. Also apparent: The health department in Denver says the machine needs to be kept clean. LINK
Sometimes, the links we post are related to technology, business or happenings on the internet:
  • A look at a Las Vegas area laundromat. LINK
  • The conflict of condominium owners wanting to install laundry equipment in a complex that already has a laundry room. LINK
  • He may have won the battle, but he lost the war! This customer won't be coming back. LINK
We close with a story that is just for fun:
  • The best cookies come fresh from the oven (by the way, we stock bake elements and other oven parts). But if you are eating packed cookies (like Oreos), you can still have some tasty fun! LINK
  • Along the same lines, when I was kid, I was sometimes told not to play with my food. I wonder if they would have said that if I were this artistic about it...LINK
If we have missed any important appliance news, please share with us in the comments section.
