Still reeling from all the fireworks, food, and celebrations of our nation's independence? Let your stomach take a break and cast your eyes over our July newsletter. We cover building a picnic table (in case you'd like a summer project your kids can help you with!), cleaning the grill (perhaps you should give that one completely over to your kids), and even some fun contests for you to enter (while your kids are busy building you that picnic table and cleaning your grill!) You can win $1001 from Polyseamseal, a brand-new front door from Therma-Tru, $5000 in the Moen Summer of Style Giveaway, and even sign up for your completely free issue of The Family Handyman. Just check out the links in this newsletter!

As usual, we also have some great pictures of (who else?) us, some of Dom's best recipes, and even some July 4th trivia for you history buffs out there. We hope you had a great 4th of July celebration and that your stomach has successfully recovered from all that BBQ!
