Next Avenue: PBS’s Web Site for Boomers

When NOT to do a do-it-yourself project has been a topic we cover a lot on our web site so we were happy to be included in Laura Vanderkam’s article on the new PBS web site for Boomers which focuses on “when grown-ups keep growing.”  Laura’s article does a good job of posing questions you should ask yourself before making the decision to DIY or hire a pro.
