When the Looting Starts

My friend, El Bandolero, has posted about President Trump’s recent tweet on his blog. I mean, Bandolero posted about it on his blog. The President didn’t post a tweet on Bandolero’s Blog. His post, When the Looting Starts, is, as always, inciteful. Whoa! I mean, insightful. Wow! That would be an unfortunate turn of words. There’s a name for that. Two words that sound the same but are spelled differently and, of course, have different, and sometimes very very different, meanings, with potentially unfortunate, if not disastrous, consequences if a person can’t distinguish the intended word from the context in which it is used. Anyway, I wanted to give a shout out to Bandolero.

Absolute Painting Lawrence Kansas

We’re obliged to share our hard earned experience with a painting contractor in Lawrence, Kansas. Despite a number of glowing testimonials (whose authenticity we are in the process of checking out), Absolute Painting, LLC of Lawrence, Kansas recently did a terrible job on our house. Patch work on drywall has bubbled up in many places, and shows through the paint in many other places. This is partly due to the watered down paint we discovered they used. You can’t buy it at the paint store. It’s a special blend that’s made by adding two cups of water to each gallon of the bottom of the line paint. We were really taken in by these guys. Now we have to spend thousands more to fix the mess they left us with. To anybody shopping for a painting contractor: stay away from Absolute Painting, LLC of Lawrence, Kansas. You will regret letting them into your home.
