Congrats on your trip and safe return John.

The re-cap you wrote on the main page was excellent. You are sure rubbing elbows with the "higher ups" in the business. Kudos to you my friend for your accomplishments with the evolution of the web site. You sure have come along way from the days of "JLC" and the abuse we all took from MB.


So with that being said. Did you see any new high tech products that caught your eye?

Oh, by the way. Its time to go back to work. It seems to keep you in better shape than some of your friends in the pictures.

I still say JB should get down to his local PBS station a pitch the idea of a How to TV show. No I'm not kidding.

Forget pbs.. no money there. HGTV needs help with tile as much as HD does and it has the same demographic.

Man, I love that mulcher idea. It would shoot the mud all over the room and you wouldn't even have to put it in buckets.

I saw a lot of product demonstations. One of the neatest was done by KW at the Laticrete booth. SpectraLock grout. Looks to me like it's gonna be a winner. I'm going to start offering it. If KW can do it, anybody can.

Everyone should also look into Karl Dahm tools. They've got some really innovative stuff.

Great idea,Bri!

Yeah,John.I can easily see you doing such a TV show.The tile business needs someone to represent that part of it on the tube.Can't think of a better host.
There are so many things you can do now with tile.Especially now with trends such as glass,metal,etc. and with so many innovative products such as Spectra-Lock.It could be a weekly show.

Throw in Bud,Bri,Jim and Cami and it could be a sit-com!
