Palm Springs comes to the Mornington Peninsula at this entertainer’s dream home, which was revamped with the help of a celebrity interior designer.

This weekend’s Fall Home + Patio Show canceled due to public health concerns

For more than half a century, the Home + Patio Show has welcomed Jacksonville residents interested in home and garden products and services to a convention hall filled with product and service exhibitors. The show, which began as the Jacksonville Home and Garden Show at the Jacksonville Coliseum in 1968, hosted its spring event in March at the Prime Osborn Convention Center, but the fall show (originally scheduled for Sept. 25-27) has been canceled due to concerns over COVID-19, like many such events. 

Tom Baugh, CEO of Marketplace Events, the show’s producer, said the cancellation, while disappointing for exhibitors and attendees, represents an attempt to balance health and liability issues with the show’s value to local businesses.

“This is not the first time we’ve had to cancel shows,” Baugh said. “We’ve

Who Pays for ‘Kitchen Crashers’? It Isn’t Easy to Get Cast on the Show

As fans of Kitchen Crashers know, the DIY Network program loves to surprise unsuspecting shoppers at home improvement stores with professional remodels, but who is expected to pay for these pricy renovations?

Lucky for us, past participants have opened up about their experiences on the various Crashers shows (which include Kitchen, Yard, Bath, House, and Room), though getting cast is tougher than you think.

Who pays for the work on ‘Kitchen Crashers’?

All five versions of Crashers use the same production company, Big Table Media, who foots the bill for the projects. However, local businesses typically donate their goods and services in exchange for free advertising.

On top of that, home makeover shows tend to have big-budget sponsors, like Bed Bath & Beyond and Target, to help cover certain costs. In a 2019 blog post, one of the franchise’s former clients, Bill Cunningham,

Biden’s Foreign Policy Advisors Show Loyalty to Israel, Defense Contractors

When Donald Trump was elected president, the foreign policy apparatus that Barack Obama’s administration built did not disappear. The power brokers went to think tanks and lobbying firms, cashing in on the uncertainty with help from defense contractors and other corporations. 

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s potential foreign policy would likely be a continuation of Obama’s aggressive approach with the use of extrajudicial killings and jailing of asylum seekers. Advisors have made clear that Biden would have no intention of making military aid to Israel conditional on Israel’s human rights abuses of Palestinians. 

Michèle Flournoy, a front-runner for Biden’s pick for Secretary of Defense, is already considered something of a glass ceiling breaker as the highest-ranking woman to have served as a Senate-confirmed Presidential appointee in

Home and remodeling show helps flood victims get back on their feet

GONZALES – Vic Sauniers and his wife lost their Gonzales home in the flood and are currently living in a FEMA trailer.

They say their new home will be elevated, built on top of a mound of dirt.

“We want to be prepared so when the next flood comes. We don’t want to deal with any water,” Vic said.

He decided not take any chances and is acting as his own contractor and building his own house. So he attended the Home and Remodeling Show at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center. There he looked for sub-contractors to do the actual work.

“I’ve been planning for about three months and today I’m getting to put eyes on so it’s really great,” Vic said.

Every type of service homeowners need is being offered at the expo. Lumber compaines, painters, tools and kitchen cabinet companies are all featured at the event.

The Property Brothers Show Off Their Grandest Kitchen Upgrades


“Property Brothers” stars Drew and Jonathan Scott are at it again! On this season of “Brother vs. Brother,” they’re competing to see who can renovate the better home in Los Angeles. And in the latest episode, they’re facing off over (arguably) the most important part of the house: the kitchen.

In the episode “A Tale of Two Kitchens,” a lot is on the line. Drew hasn’t won a single kitchen challenge in all six seasons of “Brother vs. Brother,” so he’s determined to get lucky with No. 7.


However, his plans may be dashed since Jonathan has plans for some show-stopping features, including a custom barrel ceiling and double kitchen islands.

It’s up to judges Maureen McCormick and Dan Vickery from the HGTV show “Frozen in Time” to decide which brother’s kitchen and dining space is better—and they have a tough
