    Mike Rowe

    A rag quilt that Judy Muche, of The Quilt Cabinet (I think that's the name), made out of Mike Rowe's old jeans auctioned off for $9000.00! She also made key fobs, aprons, etc. All of the proceeds go to his foundation.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Lynnie - Mike is the guy on "Dirty Jobs" and "Somebody's Got To Do It". He also provides the Narative for "Deadliest Catch". I may be off on some of the titles a bit but they are close.

    I love Mike Row. He seems to say what he thinks and can be quite the funny guy at times.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I saw this on Facebook and Mike showed all the projects that Judy M. made with his old jeans. Mike used to be on QVC way back in their early days. He was so funny and I hated it when he left. He was on "Dirty Jobs" for a long time and someone on FB said that he is on a show on CNN that is similar to Dirty Jobs...she thinks the show airs on Thursday evening but is not positive. Anyway, glad to hear about his scholarship foundation and that auctioning off the quilt from his jeans made so much money. Good for all of them!

    I saw that on Twitter this morning. How cool!

    I love his voice. He's not hard on the eyes, either!

    Mike has a great sense of humor and does various commercials for Ford and paper towels. Have always enjoyed him.

    A Good Friend, like an old quilt, is both a Treasure and a Comfort

    Yes. IT's called "Somebody's Gotta Do It". The title makes it sound similar to Dirty Jobs.
