I'm located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I'm a retired engineer, actually educated in architecture, age 73. I am an inveterate home improvement junkie, having done several homes. I've done everything, I have never missed an episode of This Old House, going back to when they started, even when I was posted on remote construction jobsites. I also follow every other program on TV which has to do with home renovations and the such. Gardenweb has a good forum for all matters, gardening and much more. I've been on Mike Holmes' forum, but it has closed down after many years. I require assistance or confirmations on specific tasks from time to time and this forum seems to be a trustworthy and knowledgable source for such. I hope I can also contribute my knowledge, gleaned over the years.
