I don’t know for sure I think all you will find is re runs since Tommy MacDonald got his own show. Truthfully though we turned off our TV service about 1.5 months ago I did a little survey and counted that 28 minutes out of every hour is commercials Ill be damned if I will pay for that. DIY got to stupid and the crap thats on TV now is not worth my time. I do watch a lot of You Tube now and I am getting ready to try HULU for renting movies a few times a month. I just don’t see any value in TV, forgive my ranting.

I used to think that Norm was the only woodworker around that thought like I did. I always watched his shows, drank my coffee out of a Yankee Workshop mug, and even wore a plaid shirt once in a while. Then a few years ago he was at the St. Louis Woodworking Show. I got there, and it was announced that Norm would be about 2 hours late. “stand on this yellow line if you want to see Norm.” I didn’t want to see him that bad. I was probably there about 3 hours (still no Norm) Someone made an announcement you would need to have a book, or buy a book by Norm, or buy a Porter Cable tool, to get an autograph.

I didn’t have a book, didn’t buy a tool, received no autograph, and Norm was no where to be found. I now drink my coffee from a cup my grandson gave me. “Worlds Greatest Grandpa.” Coffee doesn’t seem as bitter.
