The May Edition of the On The House Express is here and there are lots of great things happening that will be good for you and your home.
Your favorite home improvement trio will take On The House ‘on the road’ for a live broadcast from the National Hardware Show 2008 in Las Vegas! Be sure to tune in for the latest and greatest in tools, hardware and lawn and garden products.
As the old saying goes; April showers bring May flowers. And what could be better than to get outside and enjoy the beautiful scenery and weather in your neck of the woods? But remember that with the outdoors come those pesky bugs. Check out our tips for avoiding and protecting yourself from those buzzing and biting critters so you can enjoy May flowers in peace.
Get the most out of springtime by being active, which can help shed those unwanted pounds. As fitness guru Karel Nunnink explains, it doesn’t take much to improve your health. Check out his article in this month’s newsletter for some inspiring words of wisdom from one of America’s most popular personal trainers.
With better weather comes the desire for a backyard cookout. If your deck has seen better days and could use a good cleaning, be sure to check out the deck cleaning and care tips from our friends at Corte-Clean.
And speaking of decks…beginning May 3rd, you can enter to win our annual Great Backyard Giveaway. It’s sponsored by the California Redwood Association. You could be eligible to win over $10,000 worth of prizes including lumber materials for a 400 square foot Redwood deck, a beautiful stainless steel gas barbecue, deck and concrete stain, tools and more! Check out the homepage for entry and contest rules.
As always, featured in this month’s newsletter are some great recipes from our favorite chef Dom DeLuise. There are also some helpful outdoor tips to help you get started for summer, like making sure your grill is up to par for those BBQ get-togethers and cleaning the pool for the beginning of swim season.
So long for now! We’ll be back in June for another great edition of On The House Express!
