Hey there, time traveller!

Saturday and Sunday are the last two days of the Kitchen, Bath and Renovation Show at the Winnipeg Convention Centre. The show runs today from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
If Friday's crowds are any indication, this may be the most popular show in recent memory.
This show has always kicked off the new year for home renovations and Manitobans lead the nation in that department. Manitoba is the only province where more money is spent annually on renovations than new home construction.
In that Winnipeg has the third oldest housing stock in all of Canada, home renovations are a very big part of our lifestyle.
The Kitchen, Bath and Renovation Show is unique in that it provides a free avenue for consumers to test the renovation market.
The Ask a Renovator segment of the Manitoba Home Builders' Association booth is staffed with professional RenoMark renovators who are available to answer your questions about a job you may be planning or just dreaming about. They are there to provide free 15-minute consultations to help steer you in the right direction towards an enjoyable and exciting upgrade to your home.
Just come to the show and you will be able to pick the brains of one of Manitoba's finest renovators. Whether the job is big or small; whether it's something you're committed to or just thinking about; whether you are a do-it-yourselfer or looking for a professional to help, this is the perfect place to start.
Whether you have created detailed plans, scratched out some lines on the back of a cocktail napkin or just have some thoughts, bring them along to the Ask a Renovator booth at the Kitchen, Bath and Renovation Show. Start your renovation off on the right foot with professional advice.
Along with presenting sponsors Stalwart Appliances and All Canadian Renovations, we are proud to feature Michael Penney from the Marilyn Denis Show, Andrew Downward from Candice Olson's Divine Design, and Cambria spokeswoman Mariel Hemingway.
Tickets for the grand prize are being sold by volunteers from Variety the Children's Charity. Draws are being held for beautiful kitchen cabinetry and remodelling.
Don't miss your chance to see all of Manitoba's best suppliers located in one convenient place. Tickets are available at the door.
Mike Moore is president of the Manitoba Home Builders' Association.
