Mag....you are such an inspiration to this old- house owning gal! How I wish I could have made it to the Home Show (alas..a long way from Washington state) and taken your Power Tools for Beginners workshop, power tools kind of scare me. Best of luck on your new book, we love Red/Green down here in the states and miss seeing it, those guys are so fun and we are in dire need of some chuckles. By the way, I was watching my Avonlea videos last night (trying to avoid the news)...I think I'll record your's and Rachael Lind's laughs and put them on my Ipod, I'll be walking around giggling and looking crazy but who the heck cares!! Thanks again Mag...you are the BEST!!

I just read the article new york times wrote about you. Totally AWESOME! I think everyone needs a roll of duct tape in their tool box lol. Its the most essential tool you'll ever use...

Mag

Hey Matt,
Nice site. I like the magnetic duct tape link you posted - thanks for the tip.

Mag, I went to my local Home Depot store to purchase Ecomist & they didn't have it. I then checked online & no luck either. I went to Canadian HD site & it looks like it can only be bought in the store & not online. Ecomist website doesn't seem to have a selling feature. Know of any other source to try? PS-Thx to you I'm organizing my closet! Reading your article gave me the nudge I needed--I just bought a shoe organizer & am anxious to get it up ! :)

KarinN

PS-I live in IL & it would seem the States aren't being as progressive w/alternative cleaning products as Canada is trying to do in their HD stores. :( UGH. Businesses sure make it hard for us to try & be responsible w/helping the environment w/our cleaning product purchases. :(

Mag

Hi Karin,
So sorry that HD in the States isn't up to speed yet on EcoMist. I'll contact the manufacturer and post as soon as I have info.

Mag

KarinN

Mag, I received an email from someone at EcoMist who said he's "setting up a distributorship in the US and web site for purchasing. Meanwhile I can sell you the products directly in quantities of 6". I just wanted to try out the all-purpose cleaner before purchasing the quantity he mentioned so I'll have to ponder what to do next...

Hi,

You have a great site, and I thought you might be interested in a new hole cutting tool that I recently bought.

I saw this great tool on DIY Network, the Hole Pro X-230 adjustable hole cutter that cuts holes from 2"-9" that I used to install canned lights in my kitchen ceiling.

It was very easy to use, and kept the working area clean from dust.

Next I'm looking at installing ceiling speakers with it.

Keep up the good work!!

Sally

Hi again, here is the website for the Hole Pro that I used if you are interested.

Best wishes for a Happy Birthday Mag. Today, your family, friends and fans alike - myself included, celebrate your wonderful spirit of life and are in happy celebration of your birth. We are all so very blessed by your existence and wish you a wonderful and happy day of celebration. Thank you for everything that you do Mag. You are a truly wonderful spirit and I for one am so very grateful that you were born! Hope that you enjoy your day Mag! With love always, Eric P.

I second Dana's post - you rock! I loved your tv show! :) Now I wanna get me some sugru!

Barbara Wilkes

A recent article you penned "In Dire Weed" and posted in our local paper was interesting up untill the comment "piss-a-beds" and then you proceeded to say that this weeding tool could "grab the weed by the short and curlies". I am not a prude by any means but I found the use of these phrases offensive and completely out of place in a family newspaper. As a writer I would think that your vocabulary would we wide enough to include a more appropriate description. Kindly consider your readers when submitting your articles for publication. Yes, the publisher does have final say as to what is published in the paper but the writer must surely have a responsibility here.

Mag, Thank you for the links to these excellent plans. I had a gimps a minute ago and am already really into it!

Marry Van

Yes , this is what I was searching for - the best idea for a present for my nephew! I want one of them for him!

Gord Shuttleworth

Hello Mag,

Just read your article in the London Free Press about mulching your garden to keep it weed free. Your redference to getting info from the internet as a source of expertise is ridiculous. Who says the internet is the place to go for expert information. Personally you whole article from a horticultural persepctive is full of errors about mulching. No one should ever put 8 inches of mulch on a garden, it will eventually kill the plants. Leave the gardening advice to horticultural people with experience. It is people like you who give gardening a bad name, as well as tooting the "next gimmick" to gardening. Your article lacks knowledge and common sense.

Dan

Hey Gord, I can only assume you're a horticulturalist but I wouldn't know it from your comment. If you have better answers, please share them with us. We have only your word that the ideas are wrong but you haven't offered any constructive corrections. If you have positive information, please contribute.

Kate

I have always believed that we- women are much more handy and skillful than men, and this is quite an excellent opportunity to prove it!:)

Len Murray

I just read your article in a local newspaper about replacing the toilet tank flapper to stop water leaks.

Another source of toilet leakage is from a faulty ballcock. When it doesn't close completely when the tank is full, water continues to flow and eventually runs down the overlow standpipe into the tank (continuously).

Unfortunately, repairing, or replacing the ballcock isn't as easy as replacing the flapper.

ToolGirl

That's true, Len, and you're right, replacing a ballcock is a bit more complicated. The toilet flap leak is usually sneakier though, and perhaps more common, because you can't hear it so you don't even know you have a problem. Would you agree?

I want to try those colorful projects that me and my families can build together. I hope it will become successful and we can have fun.

Apartment Flat

Love the idea of the new Mag production. Family oriented series are always great and worth following!

Estate Agent

This will be just great! I am sure that all shows family-oriented will be always more succesful than any kind of sit coms.

Really impressed! Everything is very, very clear, open is a description of the problem. It contains the information. http://oakleysunglasseshut.org/

Mobility Store

Yes I agree a lot that we should not stop improving because we really need to have a continuous learning to develop more and discover our most hidden talents which gives us more success and achievement in life.
