True crimes are dramatized in hopes that viewers can give information leading to the capture of the criminals. The show that made Siskel and Ebert famous. These two Chicago-based movie critics sit around and review movies, giving either "Thumbs up" or "Thumbs down. Chicago critics Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert rate new movies with a thumbs up, or a thumbs down.
Building contractor and all-around handyman Bob Vila visits the sites of various home and commercial building construction and restorations, and gives viewers tips on the best way to finish such projects. The host guides various participants as they repair and renovate various houses. One of the best things about This Old House is that it has changed very little since it first aired in other than the occasional new host. When Bob Vila left, I was pretty disappointed because he WAS This Old House, but after I warmed up to Steve, I could see that it didn't really matter, that Steve was just as good as Bob and they were still doing all kinds of cool renovation jobs on historic old houses, and that's the most important thing.
I was surprised to see in this season's premiere that Steve has now left and there is another new host I missed the last few episodes of last season. He seems a little stiff and unsure of himself now, but I'm sure he'll relax and turn out just fine as Steve did. It's great to see some of the older shows from the early 80s and compare the styles of then with the styles of today.
It would be really interesting to see the guys go and redo a house that they did back around and bring it into the current style! Start your free trial.

THIS OLD HOUSE® - Sweenor Builders - Custom Home Building & Remodeling - Rhode Island
Home Again with Bob Vila. Reality-TV Talk-Show. Antiques Roadshow TV Series And they plowed into that magnificent arrogance And brought it down. Others came In uniforms, rescue trucks. On or off duty, there! Rushing in to save, to put out fires, Manage the unimaginable.
And they too were brought down. Then we came, Grieving and betrayed, Yet rising to the occasion; Doing and giving, Kinder, if not wiser. Answering the mournful wail of bagpipes, We bore witness On endless funeral lines. And became a better people. Sorrow sat on every bench. Silence screamed its presence.

No commuters here, We had all come to bear witness. Zombie-like we left the terminal. Still no voices, yet an unfamiliar noise Assaulted our ears: Huge generators plugged into the Heart of commerce. The smell was of wet cement, The sight, army tents in Battery Park. Four deep, we walked the washed sidewalks Toward the epicenter, Passed windows coated in the Grey sands of death: Passed smiling photos of the missing, presumed dead. In a dust filled shop two Pakistanis perhaps Watched over ruined merchandise, Their faces masks of despair.
Putting one foot in front of another, we advanced, Gently prodded by grieving cops. And then it was there, An eerie skeleton, Diminished, off balance, smoking still, Twisted steel a stand-in for twisted minds. We heard trucks removing what had been and No longer was; Saw ambulances awaiting those Who would never need them. Here we are today: Awash in opportunities lost Cynically divided Called unpatriotic supporters of terrorism Should we point out the obvious Led by shallow ideologues and a Constipated Congress that lacks both spine and statesmanship.
We have allowed: Form to triumph over substance Lobbyists to write our laws Simplistic slogans to influence when Critical thought was needed Science to be denigrated Fundamentalism to hold sway Fear mongering to win. The question has become: Do we have the wisdom or the will To work for the broader public good Assuming we still know what that means Take honest stock of the effects Of capitalism as Holy Grail Plan a future worthy of the legacy Of our founders Participate in our democracy As the responsibility it is Call to the fore, by a renewed sense of purpose, Leaders and statesmen worthy of the titles Rediscover our commonality And again, become a better people?
When I was a young girl I dreamed of someday living in the land of endless Summer — for me that was Florida. As an older adult that goal has shifted — I feel sorry for those who never know the golden light cast on a cool autumn morning as orange, red and yellow leaves swirl about your feet.
The crunch of snow under boots and the sparkle of sunlight on snow on a January day. The song in the heart when the first crocus unfurls from the thawing earth with the promise of Spring. I need to walk away from it, but that also feels irresponsible to me… we need to bear witness to the destruction so we can perhaps recognize and assist whatever will be the catalyst to get us the hell out of this mess.
Below is a picture of my ancient Dane, Ben, right now as I type, sharing his bed with Frasier. As I am discouraged daily watching humans become more bold with their darker side, I am continuously reminded of the simple Grace of the animals. We still have things to learn from those we consider lesser beings. The lines on my face and the ache in my body tells me so. Until recently I had an inherent belief that the country I lived in, for the most part, was made up of people who believed we are all equal, that despite our differences, we were one nation, whether under a God or not.
Or at the very least, not -winning-. What I fear most for our country, this land that I love, is that we are in the autumn of our decency, our respect for each other, and others beyond. Division seems to be the goal, unity be damned. These are not my assumptions, just listen to the message being sold. And so many are buying it. I am in love with the house nextdoor!
Old House Fair
We are very fortunate to be in the business of building houses, so we can help them do this. A stand of trees planted in the field between us helps too. Upstairs, which for now will remain unfinished to keep mortgage and taxes down, has the potential and is rough framed for two bedrooms and two baths, should children come along or they want the additional space down the road.

It dawned on me afterwards why…. This is illumination night week, Ag Fair week, and the Obamas come to stay for a while in the month of August… they arrived Saturday. Would have loved to meet them…alas, we did not. They still maintain much of that charm, although summer crowds and high grocery prices, mansions for the mega rich and the now crazy-high cost of real estate has most likely driven many of the past generations of families out, which is a sad thing. I do feel for the locals as the summer people descend on their home territory.
We used to toss around the idea of buying a small cape out there for our family to enjoy, but that window of opportunity has closed now that the cost to buy is outrageous. The ferry ride is where I let go of any tension and take on the island vibe. There are three major Ferries that take island visitors, delivery trucks, etc. There are six towns on MV, each having a unique vibe. We usually stay in Edgartown where the dining and shopping is plentiful and the walking neighborhood and gardens are absolutely beautiful.
You know… that simple gesture is an uplifting thing, I wish more people took part. Perhaps we are all getting weary of the hate and greed fueled circus in the news and Washington.

Like this one below… were stunning. At the end of the Edgartown Light beach, tucked around the bend we found an installment of the Kindess Rocks Project. So many inspirational messages left here and the creator left a box full of markers for those inspired to leave a message of their own. I loved it — more balm for the weary soul. So I grabbed the hands of my kids and we turned around before they noticed. Or at least obvious. Our favorite beaches are South beach and State Beach, as differing in temperament as the towns.
South Beach at times can be wild in nature, wind and waves powerful, the ocean showing her might.
Swimming is possible here but you better be good at it. The atmosphere was truly exhilarating! I got soaked but it was worth it.
This Old House - 40th Anniversary Special
Great for small kids to play and swim and relaxing overall. It was our first stop after leaving the ferry, taking advantage of the sunny day. We also indulged in our favorite meals at our favorite restaurants, the Black Dog tavern among them. Building on the right Many of the Black Dog clothing company photos you see in their catalog are taken on that dock. I tried to be respectful and quick, taking a photo from across the street and not gawking for more than 30 seconds.
The home is every bit as charming as she is, with paper cut out hearts strung in the window, just one of the many touches she designs and applies. You can visit Susan Branch at susanbranch. People still leave stones, little messages, cigarettes, sometimes a beer. A grave stone remains… and reads.. I may be gone, but Rock and Roll Lives On. For one thing, the combination of some really intense rainstorms and some really humid days throughout the summer have produced an abundance of flowers and growth on all the perennials. As for the vegetable gardens… well, despite my fortification attempts in the two large raised beds here on the farm….
The only plants that were marginally happy in my farm garden this year were parsley and basil, zinnia and new-to-me Dahlia. Lots and lots of old fertilizer makes really rich soil. The family has been enjoying our little Stella by the Sea in between work and volunteer and farm obligations, and that brings me great joy. It is out there, we need to underline it, highlight it… celebrate what is beautiful, choose kindness and spread that shit like fairy dust wherever we can.
