Welcome to the fourth edition of On The House Express! This month, by popular demand, we've added an October calendar to let you know what to expect on our show this month. We also have a furniture trivia quiz for you furniture "buffs" out there (no pun intended!) and some information on how to get your furnace ready for the cold weather ahead.

We love hearing your feedback, and we'd like to know what you would be interested in seeing in future monthly newsletters. To send us your feedback, just email us!

Thanks again for listening to On The House with the Carey Bros.
