You know the saying, "When you point your finger at someone, there are 3 pointing back at you." Why is it that we find it so easy to blame others for the problems we face and then use poor communicative skills to address it? I hope we get a grip on this soon because evidently there is an ammunition shortage in the US!
I may seem hypocritical because we are offering Covid Disinfecting and Sanitization for a virus that (I believe) is not so deadly. Read this Newsletter and discover why I think there is some bad math going on from the experts.
Have you found yourself not knowing what day of the week it is? Our routines are so upside down because of this Corona Virus Stay Vaca, I phase out sometimes not sure what the heck I’m doing. I’m not completely lost, it’s just that I find myself sitting around at home feeling like Bill Murray in the movie, 'Ground Hog Day'. Kerri and I truly are running out of new things to talk about. When that happens we just start picking on our Governor. What we keep asking ourselves is....”Is it time?”
I'm fully aware that any evidence or comments I put forward, there are a hundred others that can debunk it. Why? Not because I'm right but because the truth is always at war and the enemy is a Lie masquerading for its own gain. I still have to make decisions everyday that I think are best for my marriage, my family, my employees and then others... and in that order.
I like to call myself and optimist and a realist, as many of you do. This means we don’t ignore the obvious nor deny the facts, but we are willing to keep a positive attitude while we make the best decision possible in our families and work places. At a ripened old age in my 50’s I have now been through 2 recessions and felt the impact as I own, manage and finance more ‘stuff’. If there is anything I have learned it is this, like the human body's digestive system....it will pass.

This months subject reveals some truths of Engineered Quartz (EQ also known as ES - Engineered Stone). I asked myself the following questions over the last several years, “Why has Engineered Quartz become one of the most requested products in the countertop industry? Is it better than stone? Does it stain? Is stone going to become obsolete?”
Let's have a discussion about the most desired stone for centuries, white marble. White marble is the generic term even though it comes in white, off white, light gray to dark gray, including black, beige and gold veining. We have dozens of names for white marbles such as Bianca, Carrara, Statutory, Thassos, Snow White and any other creative name the Namers have come up with.
This months subject is about BASALT, a puzzling stone on the market and why it is so. As with many new stones on the market, it takes a while until we get a better understanding of their nuances. Coca Cola used to say in it’s marketing ads, “There is nothing better than than the real thing.” I agree, but to appreciate and promote the real thing about stone, we need to learn as much about it as possible.
