Keeping Busy

Everyone is always talking about how busy life is these days. Well, if my recent schedule is any indication, they’re right.

I just returned yesterday from a very pleasant trip to the West Coast where I taped a segment in Portland, Oregon, that will air on my “Clean and Green” series September 24-28 on The Early Show on CBS.

I also spent a couple of days with one of the most impressive companies I’ve ever had the pleasure to visit. Phantom Screens—located in Abbotsford, British Columbia—held their 15th anniversary celebration in the beautiful resort town of Whistler, B.C. What an event it was! Over 200 distributors and employees from this unique company came together to celebrate their modest beginning and subsequent growth to become the leading retractable screen company in North America.

It was heartwarming to see the product’s inventor, company owners and CEO all glowing with pride during the events. So organized, so thoughtful, so professional, so perfect. Congratulations Phantom! Check them out at

I arrived back in Mobile, Alabama, to tape segments for our 10th season and record spots for The Weather Channel. Then on Saturday I’m off to Fish Creek, Wisconsin, for a series of live segments on The Weather Channel to mark the first day of fall on Sunday, Sept 23rd. After that it’s on to New York for my special week long run on The Early Show starting Monday, September 24th.

I hope you had a chance to check out the article we contributed to in last Sunday’s edition of PARADE magazine, the country’s biggest magazine. It offered several innovative ways to save money this winter on your heating bills.

Our 10th season of Today’s Homeowner starts next week, and we’re really pumped about it. I just reviewed the first show of the new season and it’s awesome, the best we’ve ever done. I have a great group of people working with me, and I appreciate each and every one of them. I hope you get a chance to see our first show. Check the local listing in your area.
