  • You know, being in the stone industry I just realized I need a really cool headstone when I die.  It can't just be any old stone right?  John Hoopes of Iowa is more on top of it than I.  He had his monument specially made out of granite in the shape of a watermelon.  It's really pretty cool, read more about it here.

  • Did you know slate is a great natural material for sinks?  Houzz featured a bunch recently, check it out here.

I'm surprised that they couldn't find any green stone and had to resort to paint. There are a number of ultramafic stones that closely resemble the green watermelon rind. And why opt for maintenance with paint?
