GASP!!

about me
So we are getting some trees removed.  One or two that might fall on our house and one that might fall on our neighbors house.  They have been asking us about getting the tree removed.  How do I broach the subject about asking them to pay for part of it.  Removal on one tree in particular could be around 3000. 

Suggestions, or am i out of line for asking.  I guess I plan on giving them an out if need be. 

I am going to have to ask both sets of neighbors because one tree that might fall on our house is on my neighbor's lot.

No, Seriously....

about me
This guy at work who I refer to as "the pissed off christian dude" started railing against bio-fuels.  He was saying that they leave a larger carbon footprint than oil and gas.  Which is fair enough.  if you think about it, a lot of oil and gas go into growing it. 

So he went on about the "main stream media' and how they won't report this.  (There was an hour long special on it on CNN) (and where does he think his little po-dunk  christian channel got that story.  Think Jackass, think.)  I told him I thought that the farm lobby was the one really pushing the bio-fuels.   I do some  activists that aren't necessarily opposed to biofuels, but feel they are pretty inefficient.  Corn and soy aren't effecient for producing fuels. 

Then somehow and I am not quite sure where the jump was, but he started talking about the baby killers and how they like fuzzy animals.  I don't really pay a lot of attention when this guy talks, but words like "baby killer" really catch my attention.  I started giggling, because can you really take that kind of language seriously.  The guy next to me said "BUT Puppys are so soft and cuddley". 

Then he said he would rather be a communist than be green.  (WHAT?)  I asked him if he was talking about the Green party or what. 

So confusing.  Anyway, just another day in crazy land for the pissed off christian dude.

FYI, Greens just follow what other say.  Not like him. s

HELP ME!!

about me
So we have always had this idea that we would do wood floors in the kitchen, but now we are thinking different. It looks a little too woody to me now. it looks good in the light, but not so much in the dark. it looks like way too much wood.

so we are thinking about tile. What do you think internets?

the middle piece will look like piece of furniture when it is done.

the big hole is where our built in microwave will go. the other big hole is the refrigerator

The bar.

the floors next to the cabinets. Please leave comment. I like the idea of all the flooring being the same, but maybe a nice tile in there would be a better option for us. If I would have known about the tile, i would have gone with lighter cabinets, but either way, i love them.

We are also not going to put trim up on the cabinets afterall. It just doesn't look that good. I never really liked it, but ordered it because I thought I needed it to match the trim that might go below the cabinets for the under cabinet lighting.
