No, I’m not in the mood for remodeling.  But the other day I got a flyer in the mail and was fascinated by an ad for a new kind of flooring.  See the picture?  That floor–which looks like marble or something exotic–is CONCRETE!  You can get it in any color and all kinds of patterns.  The process is fully explained at this web site.   You can even watch a video on how they make it.  It’s impervious to scratches, scuffs, water, bending, creaking, and it’s NOT slippery.  

I don’t need or want a new floor right now, but who knows about the future?  With my big dogs (which have wreaked havoc on my wood floors), concrete is beginning to look like a great alternative.  🙂 
Maybe it was my recent hospital visit, or maybe it’s the book I’m working on, but I’ve suddenly become fascinated with medical shows.  Saturday night I watched a HOUSE marathon, and on Sunday night I forgot all about the Academy awards because I found a “Trauma in the ER” marathon on the health channel.  Who needs pretty dresses when you can watch docs take a golf club out of a man’s head?  Fascinating!

    Oooo, good! You’re writing another book with medical stuff!

    Re: concrete floors are hard on legs and can aggravate arthritic knees.

    Angie and her marathons–a woman after my own heart.

    Concrete floors are also hard on the back and COLD! But they sure looked gorgeous in the photo.

    I agree with Terri about the negatives of concrete floors. I’ll pass.

    I’m a medical show/fiction junkie. Bring it on!

    I saw that same Trauma in the ER marathon. Oh wow. I still can’t believe they pulled a golf club — a golf club, for Heaven’s sake — out of the guy’s head and he is now walking around and talking about it.

    We watched the golf club thing, too. We like that show.

    I would like to do that floor in our basement.

    I’m a sucker for all those medical shows too, love House!
