Tossed Salad Friday

~~I read in the NY Times yesterday that, in the industry, house paint is called “architectural coating.”  There’s nothing inherently untrue about that, but it gave me pause to wonder if paint is a socially unacceptable thing that needs a euphemism (like wartime civilian casualties dubbed “collateral damage”)?  Do those who design, create, market, and sell this mainstream product feel somewhat ashamed of saying they work with paint, and demanded the industry come up with an alternative appellation? Would an artist who creates with watercolors call herself a “canvas coater”?

 

~~This segment from Roseanne was from quite a while ago… but it appears nothing has changed.



 
~~Today’s my husband’s birthday. My unaccompanied card will come from the dollar store, and we sure don’t have the funds to celebrate, but I hope he doesn’t mind too much. He’s a terrific man, and he appreciates that his friends and family love him.  But it would sure be nice if life could be appreciative of him as well.

 

~~The new issue of Boating Times Long Island is online.  www.boatingtimesli.com We’ve got great articles for everyone, lots of fun places to visit by boat, and plenty of fireworks to see from land and sea!

 

Have a great holiday weekend, as we celebrate freedom!  And in the battle for bragging rights, I’m beseeching…

 

LETS GO METS!

Hi
Hi, yes I read your blog every couple of weeks or as often as I have the time to read it. But I try to read all of them.
