Toilet Memories

November 27, 2006


Bathrooms used to be a work of art, now they tend to look like a work of art in the finished product, but really under all the fake marble and shiny gold and silver lies a flimsy look alike and a cheap imitation of the real thing. I grew up using one of those normal […]

A note to my readers

November 13, 2006


 I have added a new page to the blog. On the top right hand corner under “about the author” I have added a page which will be updated weekly and it is meant to show the reader which terms were typed into google to find my site. Interesting to some so I figured I would […]

These stores of which the names […]
