Bathroom tile choices and bidets

Samantha just picked out our tile for the bathroom and the kitchen, I think it is going to be AWESOME! Also, we are trying to decide whether to put a bidet in our master bath. Any suggestions/thoughts from readers? I had never thought about getting one before but after seeing the info on bidet toilet seats from bidet.org I am thinking a bit more about it.

PayPal Extras Mastercard Review

I saw the PayPal splash page advertising their ‘PayPal Extra MasterCard‘ and I thought I would check it out a little more. It sounds good: 3% on gas and restaurants 2% on eBay/PayPal 1% on other stuff However, a little closer reading shows some serious shortcomings: -Each ‘point’ is really only worth .83 of what you would normally think of as a point.
