We interrupt this blog for some very important news: Mike Holmes, famed contractor and host of Holmes on Homes appears on this week's edition of White Coat, Black Art (Oct 20 at 1130 am, noon NT and October 25 at 430 pm, 5 pm NT). Mike gives me pointers from his perspective on the world of contracting on how to get and to give second opinions in medicine.
I interviewed him on the set of Handyman Superstar Challenge 4. Holmes is an amazing dynamo. Between takes he dispensed wisdom to me, posed for a couple of dozen photos (me too) and autographed an equal number of books. All with a smile. Kind of reminded me of an emergency physician!
Mike Holmes does more for society than sign autographs. He's built a home for the Make It Right (MIR) Project which is rebuilding homes destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. If you want to learn more, check out the MIR Project
