Yesterday I had the interesting experience of getting to work with 2 different couples planning doing their own tile jobs. The first was planning a back splash, easy peasy. I gave them some color suggestions and answered their relatively simple questions. They told me how they'd already started by watching YouTube videos... lots of them. I have no doubt their back splash will end up looking fine. The other couple? They were very, very nice, though definitely not the YouTube kind of people. They were tiling an entryway floor - very difficult. The floor needs to be level or your tile will probably end up cracking. This couple thought grout was what you used to adhere the tile to the floor. I explained to them about thin set (mortar) and talked them through the application process. I don't think they retained much. I hope their floor looks nice when they're finished. What most likely will happen is that they'll realize the difficulty and return everything they bought.
Right now Big Seig is lying next to me resting. Earlier he was running around downstairs with an afghan in his mouth.

And, of course, Bowe Bergdhal received a dishonorable discharge from the United States Army yesterday. While on the campaign trail the Idiot Jerk in the White House repeatedly said he should be executed as a traitor. What Bergdhal did was walk away from his post only to find himself captured by the Taliban. There was no collusion there, he didn't run to his captors spilling secrets... or asking for dirt on the Clinton campaign. Do you see where I'm going here? What's worse, Bergdhal abandoning his post or Donnie Jr. sitting down with a Russian attorney to "get dirt." What's worse, the Idiot Jerk knowing about the meeting and approving it, or Bergdhal being kept in a cage for 4 years? Currently, 61% of Americans believe the Idiot Jerk knew exactly what was going on. That's not a good statistic for the Idiot Jerk.
Just like with the afghans, there needs to be definition. I mean, just who is the real traitor here?
