Hey Gueuze -- a kid that thinks he can make more money mixing mud and laying tile than doing philosophy -- think of that! He's likely to head back home to Chi-town, where all the cab drivers look...

Thanks, Brian. I realize now that you're right, of course. I had been more attuned to protecting Kerdi -- Ditra seems so indestructible. I've actually dug out some waffles with a screw driver, and...

A plumber told me that he sets toilets on a mound of grout and this prevents the toilet from EVER becoming wobbly, and it matches the grout on your floor. Sounds like a good idea that I might try.
