    Does anyone watch Debbie Travis's *Painted House* or *Face Lift* - of all of them, I think she is the most genuinely talented. Her "Ice House* show was a classic!

    Travis may be the most talented, but Genevieve from "Trading Spaces" and "Town Haul" is the cutest (with Candace from "Divine Design" a very close second LOL)

    I think the Carolla show premieres next week, but I am not sure - I don't really care for his style of humor (he seems to go out of his way to grate) -but I do recall fondly the utterly politically incorrect "Man Show"

    I saw one episode. It was ok at best. It will be interesting to see what he turns his house into but I don't want to watch it again till the end. Lots of drama.

    If it werent for Norm Abhrams, I would never have gotten into woodworking!

    The man is talented and knows what he is about...a true Master Craftsman!

    I watch THIS OLD HOUSE, and that new one, ASK THIS OLD HOUSE...main staples.

    I used to watch Dean and the girl, but, when the switched girls, I quit...

    Swithched to DIY Network for awhile, then found out that the guy they had working with wood, had more complicated machinery than any "normal shop" would have in thier life time! Nada for me! Vacumn compressors..wood mortisers...sheesh!

    I learned a lot from THIS OLD HOUSE and I have a bunch of woodworking magazines coming to the house, like THIS OLD HOUSE, HandyMan, The Family Handyman, Wood and various others....

    I learn a lot from them all....

    Just my two cents for what its worth, and a wee bit extra for the collection plate...

    Jesse
