Well, I'm sorry about that. It wasn't meant to be directed at any one individual. I don't want to be on my tip toes each time I post something which goes against the grain. I do realize the demographics in which this forum is mostly made up of so I usually consider that and try to be careful of what I say... :))

OMG, RP, I swear that kitchen just gave me a drug rush...and I've never done drugs! I would have found a way to keep living in the Bahamas just to keep cooking in that kitchen. *swoon*

Why watch the movie? You're a homeowner now, so you're living that movie!

I appreciate that and I don't want you to feel that way, either. I guess it was just unexpected since, as I said, it's generally not a problem here. All is good

I've been annoyed by threads going totally off the rail in the past but not in this case.

The way I figure it, we have serious threads and fun threads. For the most part, I figure if it's in the "Off Topic" sub-forum we've already been granted permission to stray.

Besides, this thread hasn't gone off the rail, it's just sometimes running on the parallel track.

Have we officially gone off-topic about going off-topic?

I don't think anyone would like to see my kitchen right now. No ceiling and I am becoming worried with mold forming inside the walls. With the heat in the upper 90's all week, with humidity to match, and all I can think of is New Orleans right after Katrina. The wall between me and my next door neighbor is a double fire wall. Two layers in each apartment of 3/4" of each layer of sheet rock. So that means four layers for mold to form in. I can take pictures of the pipes where the ceiling used to be.

Speaking of ceilings the ONLY thing I like about my kitchen is the high ceiling.
