I haven't heard back from Mike Holmes yet. I know that Catherine (Tanner's aunt) is on her way to BlogHer so I don't want to bother her yet to see if he's contacted her directly. I also don't want to pester HIM on the off-chance that he just has been too busy to respond.
I will update as I learn more. So, everyone cross your fingers, toes or whatever works that we hear from him soon!
