The World Series ...?

So why do they call it the World Series when only Americans & Canadians play ..?

 Message from a tile contractor friend:

Hi Henry,

As you probably know the San Francisco Giants are playing the Texas Rangers in the World Series. Last night we shut the Rangers out 9-0. We are two games up in the series and now off to Arlington for three games. San Francisco is going crazy!!!!! Here is a shot of my brother Matt and I last night.

Go Giants!!!

Something Interesting - Edge Strip Kits

Check out the video of the Laticrete FloorHEAT being installed with the Edge Strip Kit:

From the Edge Strip Kits website:

Edge Strip Kits are a new innovative product designed to make installing floor heating systems faster and easier.

Using Edge Strip Kits and a self-leveling compound decreases the risk of damaging the heat wire and ensures a nice flat surface to lay your tile.

Edge Strip Kits provide a guide, around the perimeter of the room, for the self-leveling compound to fill in and over the heat mat or cable. Decreasing the chance of damaging the heat wire while troweling thinset during tiling.
