  1. WOW, that *is* a beautiful design.. Nice one in particular for being the first LOC link I’ve followed via your regular emails..

    Terrazzo was rampant in very South Florida home design when I was growing up.. Kids, don’t try this at home, but throwing on a thin coating of soapy water made for the original water slip-n-slides on front porches followed immediately thereafter by the predictable emergency room visit for harshly knocked noggins.. Ah, sweet memories.. :))

    Warmest from Talking Rock.. 🙂

  2. Great submit, many thanks for sharing this wonderful and usefull data with us.
