I spent last weekend in DC and had to make a pit stop at Julia Child’s kitchen at The Smithsonian (which you can tour via this link). So I did. And boy did she have SO. MANY. pots and pans. She’d probably judge me for my lack of proper kitchen equipment.

Too bad I can’t enter The Great TOH Giveaway for my chance at winning 1 of 15 T-fal Dream Kitchen Makeover Prize Packs. Why? Because I work for TOH. Enter today daily thru 9/2 so I can live vicariously through your potential prizing. Please? -EL

Take a #SelfieWithNorm. Well, kind of. Let us explain. As many of you may already know, most of the TOH TV guys have joined Twitter to share updates from jobsites and chat with YOU, the fans. BUT! TOH master carpenter Norm Abram is the only holdout. Norm has been on the fence about joining the party, but wouldn’t it be great if we could convince him to join Tommy, Roger, Richard, and Kevin over at Twitter in time for the premiere of the 35th anniversary season of TOH? That’s where you come in. We’re squatting on @NormAbramTOH and we’ve got (not one, but) TWO amazing downloadable Norm faces available here and here. Here’s the plan: Let’s show Norm some love by tweeting our funniest, coolest #SelfieWithNorm photos and HOPEFULLY our outpouring of affection will get him to take over the account we’ve set aside for him. Whatdya say? Click the links above to choose YOUR favorite Norm face (we’ve got Smiley Norm and Side-Eye Norm), print it up, cut it out, and load your #SelfieWithNorm to Twitter. Because, you know, if we build it…he will come…to Twitter. Or something like that. -ts

"When I paint my walls, I also paint the wall switch and outlet plates. That way I have a "chip" I can take to the paint store to get touch-up paint that matches the actual faded color on my walls." —Barbara Schuppe, Roseland, NJ
