I thought it interesting.

The above is why at the Home Depots, and LOWES and Menards etc there are all of these weekend clinics on how to lay tile, landscape, paint etc.

The folks that run the DIY home centers, are realizing that there are tons of new young homeowners, that have never used a screwdriver. So in order for their businesses to survive, they are trying to encourage and even train the next generation of homeowner to do work themselves.
