« Guest hosting at DaveFM with Jeff Lumby | Main | EcoMist - Best 'green' cleaner I've found »

September 14, 2008


No one has heard 'boo' from me in months.  Like a hotrod being pimped in a secret garage, I'm about to re-emerge with some mods.

Toolgirl2_thumb First, I'm going to be appearing at the Fall Home Show with tons of new info on how to get rid of the bugs, microbes, mites, bacteria, viruses and allergens that infest indoor air and surfaces.  I've got a really creepy slideshow for you, plus cutting-edge solutions to improve your sleep, your indoor air quality and your health this winter.  And as usual, tons of free giveaways from innovative companies like 3M, SmartSilk and Eco-Mist Solutions!

In addition to my mainstage presentation at the Home Show, I'm also teaching a new hands-on workshop, Power Tools for Beginners, featuring the latest power tools from Ryobi and free giveaways for some lucky participants.

On October 4th I'll be hosting the taping of the TV Special We're All In This Together: The Red Green Story for The Comedy Network. With guests Steve Smith, Patrick McKenna and Rick Green, the Special will take a funny and touching behind-the-scenes look at what made The Red Green Show the second-longest-running comedy in the history of television!

Waitt_cover_sm And on November 5th, ToolGirl Press will publish the new biography of Red Green creator Steve Smith.  We're All In This Together: Red Green - The Man Behind the Character and Vice Versa will be on shelves November 6, but not in bookstores!  You'll find our book only in a Home Hardware, TruServ or Federated Co-op hardware store -  you're in there once a week anyway, right? TIP: We're printing a limited number of copies (printing is expensive!) so talk to your dealer soon and reserve your copy of this unconventional book about an unconventional Canadian icon.  You can sign up for updates - and details about the book tour that Steve and I will be doing - by visiting We're All In This Together.
