Well . . . just look at me . . . I’m sitting here with egg on my face.
Due to my incompetence with all things technical, my interview with Michael Payne will have to be put off until next week ;-(

Oh yes . . . I had the interview. It was a wonderful, personal, long telephone call with Michael Payne, the original host of HGTV’s, Designing For The Sexes. We discussed everything from how he got started with the show to some of his best advice about how to deal with a husband and wife who each have different tastes during a design project.
But I messed it all up. I recorded the interview with an MP3 recording device that, unfortunately, malfunctioned.
I couldn't be any more devastated and embarrassed as I am right now. Thankfully though, Mr. Payne is a complete gentleman and consummate professional, and he has graciously agreed to give me his answers to my questions once again.
I swear . . . Just as he was on TV, this man is utterly charming, and I can't wait to share everything we talked about with you . . . next week. (Of course, assuming all goes as planned.)
You have no idea how grateful I am to be on the receiving end of his helping hand! And you, my readers, will also feel as if Mr. Payne has given you a gift, because the wisdom he'll provide is undeniably priceless ;-)
Oh, and P.S. -- I have learned a very BIG lesson: When recording important interviews, always have multiple recording devices running at once!
