Alex,
Are those snapshots of you in the white T-shirt denim overalls on the site?
What are you going to be doing on the program by the way? What's the deal?

Dear Lauro,

It's a program where the contractor, Mike Holmes, comes to your home and fixes what others messed up.

I'm just standing around with "she who must be obeyed" and trying to make snide/cute comments ( sort of like a secular Byzantine Forum wink ).

I kept comparing Mike to Sherlock Holmes and, in the end, presented him with a book on the adventures of Sherlock.

It was a great experience.

Alex

You should have asked Mike for some hints on hanging icons into drywall.

I'll be sure to watch it..

Alex, I wish we got that program in this part of North America, since I wanted to see what you look like and put a face with the name. The local cable company does not carry that program. I'm sure you don't look anything like that avatar. wink

Dear Brad,

Actually, I did have an opportunity to discuss religious issues with Mike!

He liked my icons . . . smile

Dear Paul,

Mike was so angry, he tore down the walls of the laundry room with his bare arms (he looks like Hulk Hogan!).

My favourite moment came when we put on the TV during a 4:30 pm airing of his show.

The producer and his film crew stopped everything and sat down to see it . . .

Mike shouted upstairs, "Where is everyone?"

He came up and began watching himself on TV as well . . .

I should have made a picture!

Dear Charles,

Well, I do tend to wear a lot of blue . . .

And I think I've worn out the Administrator's patience by going well over my agreed number of posts for one day!

See y'a!

You'd think H&G TV would show "Tanya and Alexander" in the states. Don't they understand the star power they are missing by not showing it down here? With decisions like this H&G may not be around much longer.

CS,

It looks to me, from reviewing the website, that one can access still frames and play the video trailer. If you go to the page that I've linked here , you will see each episode described and see links on the far left for "gallery" (the stills) and "trailer" (the video).

The episode starring Alex is not yet posted and I can't tell from those that are what the lag time is between an episode airing and it being posted to the website. Perhaps one of our Canadian members who is a regular viewer can discern that from what's currently there versus what they watched recently.

Many years,

Neil
