And now for something completely different

We went down this alley in Campbell to talk to the granite fabricating man about the kitchen. This all gets more and more complicated, but I think I am starting to get a handle on it. Good old formica is so easy to swipe off. But no, we are encouraging them to slice slabs off mountains in Brazil and Italy. Many different granites seem to have standard names. Names like Verde Butterfly or Azul Imperial. You get the idea. And they can't let you pick through the heavy slabs (there is a photocopied article on the wall about a man who was crushed to death by several slabs of marble). Fabricating Man says that the top slab, which you can see, is like the leaf in a book and they ship them together in the order in which they were sliced. So if you order now, you will get at least the next page or two, which will be very similar. I am uncomfortable about participating in the granite fad, but the stones are VERY beautiful.
