Bob Vila - Home Improvement, Home Repair And Home Renovation
Welcome to BobVila.com. I've spent my career helping people upgrade their homes and improve their lives. You may know me from TV, where I've hosted a variety of home renovation shows, including This Old House, Bob Vila's Home Again, Bob Vila, and Restore America with Bob Vila, and of course my appearances on Tim Allen's sitcom, Home Improvement, where I got to star as myself. Before broadcasting, I ran my own home remodeling and design business. Before that I spent time building houses in Panama as a Peace Corps volunteer. I learned first hand about home renovation from my father, who hand-built our family home.

Household Cleaning Tips from WomansDay.com - How to Clean House A few years ago, I found out that I’ve been cleaning all wrong. I was in a hotel room, when a maid came in and sprayed a solution on every surface…and then left. Right when I thought she’d forgotten, she returned. She wiped for less than two minutes with a thin dry cloth, and the whole place sparkled. It had, frankly, never occurred to me to let one solution do all the work, so I asked her what she’d used.

His iconic designs constitute the work of an artist whose medium of expression was fashion. The exhibition featured approximately one hundred ensembles and seventy accessories from Mr.

50 Tools Man is "weak in himself, and of small stature," wrote 19th-century essayist Thomas Carlyle. Yet, with tools, "the granite mountain melts into light dust before him, seas are his smooth highway, winds and fire his un­wearying steeds." And this from a guy who never felt a 5800-rpm circular saw scream to life in his hand. While much has changed since Carlyle's day, one thing hasn't: We need tools to build, repair and maintain the mechanical world in which we live. With these 50 tools, you'll be ready for just about any project--whether it's melting mountains or swapping out the kitchen sink. 1.
