I wanted to thank you ,I began watching youre -" A Repair to remeber" a few years back ,my spouse is afraid of DIY repairs ,seems he thinks if he screws up his image will suffer ,I told him ,check this chick out ,is she doing this right? you were doing the dryer hose one (my ploy to get him to watch ,of course you were doing it right (lol) in any event it encourgaged me to try to do some of the easyier tasks around the house ,which in turn made him get off his butt and take hold of the situation ,you bring projects that people can actually do themselves ,save money ,feel accomplisment whilst all along showing us that these daunting tasks can use a bit of humour --makes it a whole lot more enjoyable .I cant thank you enough for giving me the nudge I needed to get involved in my house ,other than just cleaning it !
