Fun Little Light Show

Fo anyone on the front (Market Street) side of the building (or anyone who wants to find a viewing spot on the front side of the building), turn out your lights and take a look at the smokestack next to the Market Mills complex.  There’s an interesting bunch of red and green dots wandering around on it.

Don’t know who’s projecting them, but I got a kick out of them once I realized I wasn’t imagining things!

Bathroom Remodeling

Has anyone used Bathfitters to redo their tub/shower? We’re wondering how their enclosures hold up. I believe that our unit has its original shower surround and tub from 30 years ago which has long since lost its shine and is pretty tough to get clean. Has anyone outright replaced their tub/shower? Who did you use and how did it work out? We’re not interested in a stunning, designer bathroom, just in one that’s easier to keep clean.
