Handy Mac looks for­ward to chat­ting about DIY and other is­sues on air

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - HOME -

THIS week Pippa Hud­son of Cape Talk in­vited me back to her show for an­other DIY chat. The 30 min­utes fly by and it is be­com­ing an event I look for­ward to ev­ery two months. I en­joy the in­ter­ac­tion, even though I have to think on my feet and can’t do the re­search which is some­times nec­es­sary.

Mrs Mac is al­ways en­cour­ag­ing me to get with mod­ern tech­nol­ogy, so per­haps we must take an­other step up.

Please send me ques­tions by voice note on What­sApp to 082 446 3859.

On a sad­der note, the build­ing in­dus­try lost one of those spe­cial, quiet men who worked be­hind the scenes.

He was the per­son who en­sured that ev­ery piece of pa­per you sign when you en­ter into a con­tract was fair to ev­ery­one.

I am al­ways telling you not to do any build­ing with­out a con­tract, and those who do use con­tracts should know Jim Gar­ner was one of those peo­ple who en­sured every­thing was done as it should be.

Even well past re­tire­ment age,

Jim was still go­ing into the of­fice to help oth­ers.
