Ten days ago, I was out West with one of my closest friends, Dan. Dan and I met about fourteen years ago. We were both part of a secret Internet entrepreneur mastermind group that I helped get off the ground.
My college degree is in geology and most of the western USA is a paradise for geologists because you can see the rocks. Dan and I went hiking for four days in southern Utah, and then we played nine-holes of golf at a fantastic small course in Mesquite, NV - Coyote Willows.
Kathy, my wife, loves it when I go away. She's not a big fan of traveling and since I work at home (for the past twenty-five years I might add!) she gets a vacation from me when I travel. It's a win-win for both of us.
I'm back with my shoulder against the millstone and working to revise more and more of my past columns. I did one yesterday morning that I feel you'll really love. It's got two of my hand-drawn illustrations in it. I used to do drawings like that sitting at customers' dining room tables.
Get Your Free Jigsaw Blade NOW!
A couple of issues back I mentioned that you can get a FREE new Lenox jigsaw blade. These are revolutionary and it's RARE that a manufacturer makes this offer to the general public.
The offer is only good for people that live in the USA.
CLICK HERE to get your FREE Lenox blade. Be SURE to watch the three videos on that page showing the blades in a REAL TEST and a tour of the factory where the blades are made.
Drainage Issues at Your Home
Do you have water drainage issues at your home? Look at this:
You may not have standing water as you see in the above photo, but how about water leaking into your basement or crawlspace?
Do you have a SOGGY yard?
You can STOP THIS WATER. It's best to stop it outside before it gets to your home.
CLICK HERE to see how to do it. There is a great video in the column for you to watch.
I just revised this column and you'll see at the bottom a link to my Linear French Drain DVD. It's a professionally produced DVD and shows you all you need to know to stop water from entering your home. You can also use my linear french drain to dry out your SOGGY yard.
For the next four days you can get 25% off that DVD using the following promo code:
That's a fantastic deal and it's going to go away in just a few days.
P.S. That promo code works for 99.78345 percent of the items in my shopping cart. You should really consider getting the PDF Basic Structural Concepts eBook.

Overnight, I got a great question from Mike. He wanted to know the best wall anchor to use on exterior walls. He knew that a metal anchor could cause condensation in a cold climate.
I pointed Mike to this column and told him to CLICK the photo at the top of the column to see my favorite plastic wall anchor that really works well.
You should do the same.
Here are some revised columns did for you the past few days:
That's enough for a Friday.
