Remaining hopeful. Season 8 of Last Man Standing was forced to wrap before filming its finale, forcing the April 30 penultimate episode to serve as the final episode of the season. However, star Tim Allen is hopeful that the show will be renewed for a ninth season — and that the original finale can serve as the premiere.

“I think it would be outstanding as a premiere,” the comedian, 66, told Us Weekly exclusively. “You’d save it, we could do some pieces over the summer.”

Last Man Standing aired on ABC for six seasons before getting canceled. Fox then picked it up for seasons 7 and 8 — and Allen says they’ve been talking about how season 9 would look.

“We have planned for a future

‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ star Duane Chapman is engaged — get the details

Love is in the air once again for Duane “Dog” Chapman.

The reality star is engaged to Francie Frane.

“They’re very happy and looking forward to a long life together,” a rep for the “Dog the Bounty Hunter” star confirmed to TODAY.

“I wasn’t expecting it at all,” Frane told The Sun U.S. about the proposal, which took place at their Colorado home.

“I think I had gone to pick up some food and then when I came back he had all the lights turned down with just a few lights on and a bunch of candles lit. So when I came in I was like, ‘Wow, this is awesome’. Then he said, ‘Come in, sit down because I need to talk to you.’ So I put all the food in the kitchen and I came in and he said, ‘I know that God brought you into my life

Your Home Improvement Project Can Wait — It’s Not ‘Essential’

I hate to be the bearer of bad news here, but that home improvement project you are planning to tackle since you finally have a lot of time on your hands?

If it requires a trip to a home improvement warehouse store, it needs to wait.

I totally understand how frustrating that is. Like you, when I first heard how long we would be confined to our home, I planned on taking advantage of my husband’s reduced hours to knock out some of the projects we’d put on the back burner.

I wasn’t planning a shopping spree or anything, but I figured when we ran out for groceries, I could send my husband into a home improvement store to grab just what we needed for one project at a time. We could still limit ourselves to one trip per week as recommended. We’d stay in our own home the rest

Virtual Design Services – Modsy Online Design During a Pandemic

For many people, home improvement and redesign projects were halted when shelter-in-place orders went into effect as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. With contractors and interior designers no longer allowed to set foot physically in their clients’ spaces, executing the dreamed-of design visions has been difficult at best. So it’s only natural if you’re among those who want to turn to an online design company that offers completely virtual—i.e., no personal contact—design services, providing clients with the tools they need to keep their redesigns rolling during this new era of social distancing. ELLE Decor recently spoke with Alessandra Wood, the vice president of style at the virtual design firm Modsy, to hear more about its online design process and what trends she has seen developing over the course of the past two months.

Whether you engage in five-finger discounts or take more than your fair share of mints from the communal bowl, at the end of the day you’re simply stealing from business owners and sullying your image. Make sure you understand when you’re acting thrifty — and when you’re just being cheap.

The Hotel Heist

Toiletries are among the many free luxuries that frequent travelers enjoy. But frugal folks sometimes cross the line by stealing extra soaps and shampoo bottles to take home.

If you have a habit of hitting up the housekeeper’s cart for extra bars of soap, you’re not only scamming the hotel, but you’re also wasting your time. After all, the savings on a sliver of soap are hardly worth writing home about.

U.S. Xpress’ Mix Means Steady Freight Volumes, Even As It Posts A Loss

In an earnings season full of trucking and transport companies declaring they’ve seen a sharp falloff in volumes this month, carrying over from a late March collapse, truckload carrier U.S. Xpress Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: USX) is an outlier. 

Given the mix of its freight, CEO Eric Fuller said April volumes have held largely steady even as some other trucking firms are reporting year-on-year declines of 20%. 

“U.S. Xpress has a strong customer mix of grocery, e-commerce, consumer products, discount retail, and home improvement, with little exposure to automotive, manufacturing and restaurants,” the company said on Thursday, April 30, in announcing its first quarter earnings. “The company has not seen a drop in total load volume to date through April.”

In the company’s conference call with analysts, Fuller noted that the heavy mix of grocery, home improvement and discount store operations in the USX customer base meant that after the
