Happy New Year! In celebration of a new year and in consideration of your desire to get more exercise and to trim down, in this issue of On The House Express, we offer some suggestions for home improvement that will assist you in your quest for self-improvement. Plus, as the holiday season comes to an end, we have tips on how you can take inventory to improve your home for holiday entertaining next year.  This can be quite helpful, especially with the holidays still fresh in your mind!

We also have included ways to regulate your indoor humidity, so you can look forward to starting off the new year WITHOUT creaking floors, condensation, mold & mildew, throat & skin irritation and a whole bunch of other problems that can be related to the humidity level in your home.

And, as always, take time to enjoy some culinary delights with recipes from our friend and yours, Dom DeLuise.

Best wishes for a wonderful 2006!

  Morris and James Carey
