HOME Improvement star Richard Karn has opened up about what life was really like as Al Borland on the ’90s sitcom. And perhaps, just as it is for Allen, the fact that Last Man Standing exists means there’s no real point in anyone longing for Home Improvement at all, so thoroughly does it fill that niche. I dealt with cast claustrophobia when I dislocated my wrist requiring surgery and was put in a cast from my hand to elbow for three months.
My grandson has a neon green cast on his arm – he’s 7. He seems pretty upbeat, too. I’m not precisely sure when this picture was taken, but I think it’s fairly recent, and shows that even after all these years, the cast is still looking pretty damn good. And he even developed an open source replacement for the Data Conversion transformation if the CAST or CONVERT option is not possible for your source.
I would highly recommend that people ask their doctor about using Gabapentin to reduce their cast claustrophobia. I mentioned it again to the tech putting on my cast and he had the idea in cutting the cast from end to relive some pressure and give me some control.
Those who love cast iron are buying fireplace and remodeling their living rooms to fit it in place. With the proper cleaning and the plugging of the drain hole, cast iron bathtubs can be turned into small backyard ponds or creatively placed fish tanks. Now: In the years since, Karn has hosted ‘Family Feud’ and ‘Bingo America.’ He’s also co-written two home improvement books ( on the topic of actual home improvement, not the show).
Although a little slower to warm up initially than a steel radiator, cast iron radiators, due to the mass of the metal and it’s heat retention properties, will slowly give off heat long after the boiler or furnace has switched off for the night, helping to keep the house at a comfortable temperature.
