      I JUST noticed that someone seems to be reposting your content using the same channel name but capitalizing Renovation and East. Possible name of R Hayes or r hayes? What can we do about this. They’ve reposted 8 videos appearing to be you/yours.

    What a great gift to do for your sweet neighbor Udo. I hope I am spelling that correctly. I hope your recovery is going well Udo... and you can return home very soon. My husband needs a knee replacement soon but is waiting a bit so it will last the rest of his lifetime. OMGosh those concrete steps were tough! Good thing Laszlo had the muscles to get enough off for the new steps to fit. ☺️

    I regret that I found your channel only today. I watched few hours it is so addictive. When I was young my hubby and I were in US and bought the new construction. We diligently worked in the garden and built the deck, tile the floor and finished the basement. Now my husband passed I am back in Seoul live by myself in a high rising apartment. Your film makes me remind my happy golden days. Thank you.

    Hello André. I hope you like to know that, also in Brazil, you have an audience. I started to follow your videos for an unusual reason; the ease of understanding your English. It has been a real exercise for me. Like you, I am a teacher and, originally, I am also German. My ancestors came from Oldenburg in the 1800s. They sailed from Hamburg on the Germania steamer. I will continue to accompany you and admire your simple way of being and facing the challenges of this new endeavor. Health, peace and my admiration.

    The road to hell in not paved with good intentions, it is paved with concrete; that is why it is so easy to go in that direction. Meanwhile, the stairway to heaven breaks down a lot, can rot and needs constant repairs if not done properly and protected. Kudos to you two for being such neighborly neighbors! Sometimes it just takes an afternoon and a little work to show someone a world of kindness.

    How nice of you and your husband to be such good and generous neighbors. Honey bees and the impossible how do they manage to fly Bumble bees! I swear the Bumble bees look even larger than ever this year. I was out pruning back Roses of Sharon shrubs earlier today and the bees were everywhere over the ground ivy in full bloom. It has invaded one of my garden beds on a fence line with the yard on the other side of my fence. I can't spray to kill the ground ivy on their side of my fence but I don't mind it too much. It's been limited in area because of dense growth of old-fashioned day lilies that are already nearly knee high tall (on me, anyway) in the garden bed. When I see it trying to creep into my lawn through narrow openings in the stone blocks comprising the wall to the raised garden bed, I am ruthless in digging it up and spraying it to death if necessary (rarely) with weed (but not grass) killer.
