More great stuff on Real Life this week with expert guests and your congenial hosts, Sharon Caddy and Tanya Prokomenko...

  • How to Allergy-Proof Your Home
  • Secrets to Getting the Right Shapewear (I don't even know what shapewear is but I think I must get some)
  • Gadgets for Your Home Office
  • Changing Your Tire at Roadside




I prefer changing my tires at home. It's quite an inconvenience to have to drag a compressor, air wrench and miles of extension cord just to do it on the roadside.


Discerning as usual, Michael!


Truth be told, I keep a compressor, air wrench and 100s of feet of extension cord in my truck. Pneumatic tools are handy on the job site and ward off the flat tire gremlins.

By the way, how many of your 47 hammers have seen a tour of duty?
