    I can strongly recommend you never watch the delightful cartoon for children called "Wow Wow Wubbzy". The opening song has a LOT of wows in it. I mean a LOT.

    Our handyman taught us a trick - buy everything you think you need, and return what you don't use. That will cut it down to 10-12 trips, at the most.

    Norm Abrams is a god amongst men.

    Or the Flippers - "Oh no, we're gonna lose our shirts on this one!" Then it sells the first day and they make $50K.

    My wife and I decided to move to Waco because of Fixer Upper.**


    **Not because of Chip and JoJo specifically, but because we were having a hard time finding an affordable starter home in DFW. My wife was watching the show and was drawn in by the fact that houses don’t cost a fortune down here.. Even the ones that don’t need to be gutted and remodeled.

    Took us a month to find the perfect house!

    We watch a bunch of those type of shows an I think that "This Old House" is still among the best after all these years.
