Let's just agree it's not necessarily a good thing I could identify alcohol so easily.....

Great Cesar's ghost!

Is that photo just coincidentally taken in front of that booth, Frank, or is Opie somehow affiliated with Laticrete?

One outstanding product that I saw for the first time at Coverings was
MAPEI Flexcolor™ 3D designer grout.
Per Mapei:
"MAPEI Flexcolor 3D is a professional-grade, ready-to-use (RTU) translucent specialty grout with an “iridescent effect” finish. Its translucent characteristics not only reflect but also refract light. This allows the grout to transition in color to complement the tile color... "


Laticrete also has a glitter additive to their spectrolock which I have used and like very much. It has withstood the test of time and still shows very well.
I plan to do a shower with the Flexcolor 3D soon and will report on that. Just need to find out how to get it..
I really like the glitter, and it does not make the install look cheap. It instead, looks classy.

That was an eye catcher. Going to a Mapei seminar tonight and hopefully there will be some product there to play with. They (Mapei) are also introducing their new uncoupling membrane.
Nuheat also had their new membrane for heated tile floors. Its made by Progress, the Italian company that originated the concept that sued Schluter for .... well we cant get into that.

It was good spending some time with you and Janie JB and Frank and Frieda at the CBP event. Although we couldn't hear most of the conversation...lol
