New flooring

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!
