Operation Christmas Child set to begin By Derek Fisher • derek@youarecurrent.com This holiday season, Whitestown residents are working to brighten the lives of millions of needy children around the world. Volunteers currently are preparing for the collection of 1,400 gift-filled shoe boxes – Whitestown’s target contribution to the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, Operation Christmas Child. Monday through Nov. 19, New Hope Christian Church in Whitestown will be bustling with activity as goodies for needy kids overseas are dropped off by local individuals and families. The church’s collection center will be transformed into a Christmas workshop as it is filled with colorfully wrapped gifts bound for hurting children worldwide. This year-round project of international Christian relief and evangelism organization Samaritan’s Purse, headed by Franklin Graham, is ramping up as local businesses, churches and community groups prepare to collect the boxes. Anyone can drop off a packed shoe box at the collection site, then, using whatever means necessary – trucks, trains, boats, bikes and even elephants – the shoe box gifts will be hand-delivered in 100 countries around the world. In 2012, Operation Christmas Child expects to reach a milestone, eclipsing the 100 million mark in children helped since

1993. Currently, the operation has collected more than 94 million shoe box gifts and hand-delivered them to suffering children in more than 130 countries. This year, Operation Christmas Child hopes to collect another 9 million gift-filled shoe boxes. The program uses tracking technology to allow participants to “follow” their boxes to the destination country where it will be given to a child in need. To register shoe box gifts and find out the destination country or for more information, use the Follow Your Box donation form found at

Improving on technology

Commentary by Ward Degler Americans love to improve on technology. The latest involves making an amplifier for a smart phone from a potato chip can. With it, folks can better hear music on the phone. When my dad was a kid he did something similar. Back then radio was in its infancy and not many could afford the day’s expensive sets. My dad included. What he did instead was build a rudimentary radio called a crystal set. He said he found the plans for it in the Boy Scout handbook. It involved a salt box, a coil of copper wire and a small crystal rock. Once the crystal radio was completed, you needed a set of headphones to hear. At first, he said, he and his friends took turns with the headphones. Then he got an idea. He went into the kitchen and came back with a large mixing bowl, set the bowl on the table and put the headphones inside. Viola! The bowl became an amplifier. Everyone could hear. Dad said that after that everybody kept a mixing bowl on the coffee table. By the time I was born in the mid-1930s, radio was better established and Mom and Dad had purchased a big console Zenith. It was a thing of beauty with a polished wooden cabinet, a glowing luminous dial and two speakers. You could get dozens of stations on it including short wave. Once we tuned in to the war news on the BBC in London. I never built a crystal set, and transistor radios quickly ushered the big Zenith into obscurity. Today, it’s all about smart phones, MP3 players and iPads. Still, you never know when you might need a potato chip can or a salt box to improve on the latest technology.

Cover Story

Merchants come together to spearhead new event on Nov. 16 - 17 By Julie Osborne • julie@youarecurrent.com

Heart of the Village Holiday Open House

They hit the bricks going door-to-door with an idea to bring merchants together in downtown Zionsville to give shoppers a head start on their holiday purchases and home decorating. It was through four local merchants with distinct personalities and diverse businesses that the idea was born, and now Heart of the Village Holiday Open House has become a reality. “We had no agenda other than to help each other help ourselves and to get the word out that Zionsville is still a destination town,” say coorganizer, Janelle Morrison.

by some Village merchants prevented participation, along with organizers not being able to reach all business owners while walking the town to gain support for the event. However, overall there has been a positive response with 33 restaurants and retailers on board. “We just needed to get the ball rolling. We are humbled by how many businesses have turned out, bought into the marketing package, and asked how they could help. There is excitement and a renewed energy,” says Morrison. Many merchants expressed gratitude for the organizers in stepping up to get something going, “It started with the core planners - Janelle, Steve, Lesley and Drew (Kogan) - having a wonderful idea to pull the Village together in an unusual way,” says business owner Tom Casalini, “I’ve been part of the Village for 40 years and whenever you have an opportunity to promote the comradery of the Village and showcase Zionsville, I want to be a part of it.”

Coming together of merchants and SullivanMunce

What’s unique about this event is that it is merchant-driven with business owners coming together who normally compete for business against each other. “We wanted to do something out of the box. If we, as merchants, didn’t take the initiative, it wasn’t going to happen,” says co-organizer Steve Schwartz, owner of Ballerinas and Bruisers. An event in the fall created a vision that launched these business owners into action. “We talked about doing something like this for a couple of years, but our inspiration came after Fashion Night Out, which we put together in three days. It put a fire in us to say, ‘What’s next’?” says Schwartz. On the horizon was The Artisans’ Fare at the SullivanMunce, which the organizers saw as a prime partnership opportunity to create a complementary event in Zionsville for people who were already in town. “We saw the Artisans’ Fare as a perfect platform to organize a collective effort to put together this event. Over 200 people attended the Artisans’ Fare last year and we want to draw those people into downtown to continue their shopping and dining experience after they attend the Artisans’ Fare,” says Morrison.

A coordinated effort

This isn’t the first time merchants have come together to create a new event. The well-known Christmas in the Village had similar grassroot beginnings. “Over 30 years ago, merchants came together to promote the town and celebrate the holidays with Christmas in the Village,” says Carol Marquiss, Zionsville Merchants Asscociation president. “It has a small-town feel with people and businesses working together.” This premiere event also is about merchants working together to benefit the town. Coordinating efforts and resources is nothing new but usually done on a smaller scale as clusters of merchants plan and promote events together. “It’s not unusual for stores to cross promote and help each other. It makes it easy and cost effective for small business owners to come together and pool our

Jump on holiday shopping and decorating

resources to create something larger,”says co-organizer, Lesley Jane Hunt, owner of Lesley Jane. “It’s good to be able to work together. I hope we can do more of these events like Heart of the Village.” Working together was one of the primary reasons some merchants supported this new event. For business owner Doug Pendleton, the “Wine Guy” of Grapevine Cottage, the week before Thanksgiving is his busiest time of the year so extra marketing is not needed, but he joined the effort saying, “We try to support anything merchants do to come together to bring traffic to downtown Zionsville.”

Get the ball rolling

With any new idea, there is often resistance. Tight budgets

One draw for business owners is the timing of this event, as holiday season promotions now begin before Thanksgiving and many want to get a jump on their shopping and decorating. “This event will kick-off the holiday season and promote the well being of the town. Hopefully, it will become an annual event,”says coorganizer, Kogan. His antique business, Kogan Antiques & Lighting, is one of the oldest on Main Street, after 42 years, and he has learned that holiday home decorating often begins before or over Thanksgiving. “We get a lot of one-of-a-kind items and people come in early for them,” says Kogan. “This year we will have unique Christmas items and wreath orders available at the open house.”

Something for everyone

“What’s unique is that everybody is doing something different with their own in-store promotions. It’s 33 different events packaged into one!” says Hunt. The organizers, as well as many participating merchants, hope they can continue to come together to help promote downtown Zionsville. Schwartz says, “It’s so refreshing to see such a great response from the merchants. Maybe this will be the beginning of many things to follow!”

Opinion

Beyond black and white It is our position that community diversity is more than a black and white issue. While the numbers as a whole may pale in comparison to Caucasians inhabiting the area, our community is slowly but surely becoming more diverse than ever before welcoming dozens of nationalities. Hamilton County is now home to one of the largest populations of Indian and Asian Americans in the state. In addition to simply interacting with one another, exhibits such as the upcoming, Beyond Bollywood, also help to gain an understanding of one another’s heritage and values. Beyond Bollywood – Indian Americans Shape the Nation is a groundbreaking exhibit exploring the vibrant heritage, daily experience, and diverse political, professional and cultural contributions of Indian immigrants and their descendants to shaping the United States. The exhibit is being organized by the Indian American Heritage Project of the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Program. The organizers are searching for Indian Americans to be a part of the collective storytelling by sharing photos and stories. The exhibit opens in late 2013 at the National Museum of Natural History.

Perhaps there’s a silver lining out there

The tough questions

Commentary by Terry Anker

“Daddy, what’s rape?” queried the little girl. This kind of interrogatory sends chills down a parent’s spine. Not only is one concerned about what might have precipitated the attention of the child but one is also maddened by the reality of a world where someone so tender is exposed to something so brutal. No doubt in a world of instant communication, few are spared the spillover effect from a constant and uncensored stream of information. We can rage against media which brings this into our homes without concern for context. A parent with less than stellar remote control skills, even if attentive, might let some nastiness slip through. Most recently the point was illustrated by a colossally ineloquent pro-life expression from a candidate for high office. Likely referring to the life that comes as a consequence of the rape, the hapless soul actually said “it is something that God intended to happen.” Does anyone, including the speaker, really believe that God intends rape? I

certainly hope not. With my own somewhat older kids (middle and high school), we were able to discuss whether a friend of theirs who may have been originally conceived through the violent act is inferior to a person begat in love. In our own family straw poll, we unanimously believed that each was valued the same in the eyes of God. On the more thorny issue, our youngest wondered how such a violent act was even possible. His innocence contrasted the searing reality of anger and dominance. Some people, I suggested to him, have the need to intimidate and control others. It makes them feel powerful, I continued. While words failed me to further explain, he rescued me by observing – those people who do that are just dumb. Perhaps, I thought, but they are certainly broken.

"Every generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it." - Georger Orwell Current in Zionsville

The re-election of President Barack Obama should not be confused with a mandate. His 2.2-percent (as of press time) margin of victory tells us that the majority of voters missed the point: The guy can’t lead. Were he a leader, he would have righted the ship in his first term. Instead, he made matters left for him by George Bush only worse. Back in 2008, Obama became our “accidental president.” We were a nation gripped with fear after eight years of Bush. It’s proof that success in life, and especially in politics, is all about timing. With all his missteps on many matters domestic and foreign, it stunned us to see him be granted four more years. Back in ’08, there was the financial free-fall and a destroyed Republican brand, among other ills. Right place, right time. Now, we’ve seen his socalled plan, which he executed his first two years and much to the detriment of the nation. We know the path down which he is trying to lead us. It’s a dangerous one, we believe. We don’t see Obama accomplishing what he wants to, because he has shown he cannot inspire or unite, and that’s what true leadership demands. It also demands full disclosure and transparency. The Bengahzi horror is, in our opinion, as unforgiveable as the shroud of secrecy the White House tried to cast over it. That’s leadership? With the coming gridlock in Congress, we expect not much of anything to improve. Our hope, because of that, is that his vision for America will be curtailed. That is the best for which we can hope at this point. So, in the end, Obama’s leadership deficit now perhaps becomes our ally. ••• Actors Theatre of Indiana has a gem of a show in “Route 66” – and we urge you to go see it.

Opinion

Not so bad after all

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

With all the chaos of Superstorm Sandy, I can’t help but think how glad I am to live in Indiana. And that’s saying something, as I am not a native Hoosier. In fact, 15 years ago I had a terrible fight with my husband for dragging me to this, and I quote, “Godforsaken hellhole.” (Turned out I was six weeks pregnant and raging with hormones. Oops. Sorry, Doo!) The point is, people, I have come to appreciate this fine state for many reasons, not the least of which is the absence of hurricane-blizzards. Indiana may be lacking my home state’s deliciously sinful trifecta of bourbon, horseracing and tobacco, but it’s still good for a few things. Like corn. I have never tasted more glorious corn than the freshly picked summer variety from Indiana’s farmland. Add copious amounts of butter and salt, and you have yourself a little slice of heaven. Sure we have one of the highest obesity rates in the country, but that’s not because of the sweet corn. No, that honor has root in another reason I’m starting to love Indiana. Three words: State. Fair. Food. I limited myself to a corn dog, elephant ear and large chocolate shake at this year’s festival, but I so didn’t want to. Turkey legs, fried Snicker bars, sausages on a stick . . . you can’t find that kind of high-fat flavor in just any state, ya know!

And how about sports? Sure, I’m not really in to IndyCar, and I could give a rat’s butt about hockey, but Indiana does have some pretty amazing professional teams and hosted a killer Super Bowl party last year. The college teams will always leave something to be desired (especially since the stupid IU men’s basketball team was ranked ahead of my Louisville Cardinals in preseason polls; whatever) but I suppose they’re adequate enough to give just about everybody someone to cheer for. “Boil up an Irish Hoosier!” Reason number nine for me liking Indiana (I’m skipping a few here, obviously, but I do have a word limit!) has only dawned on me in the last five years or so: We are within a day’s drive of most vacation destinations. This fact is especially significant when one has four children and a dilapidated mini-van with tenuous air conditioning. Plus, our more rural Midwest location will be perfect when the Zombie Apocalypse arrives. The living dead have to be easier to outrun in a cornfield than in a Manhattan street block, right? So even though the White River is more like a creek, and we are definitely in the wrong time zone, Indiana still is a great place to live. Peace out.

Keep on truckin’ Commentary by Mike Redmond

I once owned a house in Sturgis, Mich, which was extremely convenient since I happened to be living in Sturgis at the time. It was a nice place – three bedrooms, on a nice shady street, with the town’s only surviving elm tree in the backyard. And it had a heated garage that was massive – big enough for two cars, a motorcycle and various pieces of lawn equipment, with enough room left over for a big four-wheel drive diesel pickup truck with dual rear wheels. I bring up the truck because that’s what I’m looking to buy in the near future. And I bring up the house in Sturgis because its price was approximately half of what it’s going to cost me to buy the aforementioned truck. The question then becomes, “Are you sure you need all that pickup truck, Michael? Isn’t that showing off? Aren’t you really just fantasizing about making all your cousins envious when you pull up to the next family reunion in a 2012 heavy duty Manlyhauler?” Well, yes. Also, yes and yes. I need a lot more truck than I currently own because I’m doing a lot of hauling in one of my

other jobs and my old truck is vastly underpowered. I need something with some oomph, and when I got my old truck no one was offering the Oomph Package. That was okay because I never really hauled anything heavier than garden supplies and the annual Christmas tree. Now I’m carrying actual freight and the truck isn’t happy about it, not in the least. In fact, it is currently expressing this unhappiness by not running. But I must admit the showoff in me likes the idea of tooling down the road in something massive with a big engine, clearance lights and dual rear wheels. You armchair psychologists can make of that what you will. I will only add that in my life I have also liked the idea of tooling around in a British sports car, so your size compensation jokes don’t work on me. But boy, is it going to be expensive. Two houses for a truck. That’s a lot. And I wonder if I can handle it without feeling incredibly guilty for being such a spendthrift. Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker.

Drop ‘til you shop Commentary by Dick Wolfsie When I read Consumer Reports, I simply want to know whether a certain camera takes a good photo, or whether a dishwasher will effectively clean the dishes even if I leave some of my wife’s baked lasagna on the plate. Instead, I get a great deal of unnecessary info that I really don’t care much about. Did you know that the camera strap on the Nikon D series is three millimeters thicker than the one on the Olympus TG-820? That the Amana dishwasher has only four rollers on the bottom rack but a Kenmore has six? The newest consumer monthly is called Shop Smart ;) and yes, that emoticon is part of the actual title. Honestly, I don’t want the cover of a publication winking at me. Playboy never winked at me and heaven knows it had good reason. It reminds me of a sign I saw in a supermarket window the other day: “Ground Beef.” Why is that in quotes? It’s really ground beef, isn’t it? Now imagine if the butcher handed the “meat” to you, told you how delish it was … and then he winked. My favorite article this month was “MoneyWasting Kitchen Gadgets.” This is a helpful Shop Smart; feature for anyone who has not yet bought a $19.95 pair of onion goggles but might consider them as a last-minute stocking

stuffer for Aunt Mildred. The magazine gives a poor rating to the Williams-Sonoma mango pitter but is strangely silent on the company’s avocado cuber, corn husker and strawberry huller. This month there was an interesting spread on the hazards of everyday products in your home. For example, aerosol hairspray can cause respiratory problems, although it helps if you don’t spray it in your nose. Also, cetylpyridinium chloride in your mouthwash (like Crest ProHealth) can turn your tongue brown. I’ve been using this product for years, so now every time I pass a mirror I check things out. My wife thinks I’m auditioning to be a guitarist with Kiss. Finally, I also discovered that cotton swabs can be dangerous. According to the otolaryngologist interviewed, these bathroom essentials can introduce bacteria in your ears. “Hello, Mr. Ear Canal, I’m a Q-tip and I’d like you to meet my friend Strep Tococcus.” I don’t think that really happens, but it would explain all the voices I keep hearing in my head.

Move the needle: Planning Commentary by CJ McClanahan

Do me a favor. Tell me what you did this past Monday. Tell me exactly what you accomplished from the moment you got into your office until the minute you left. If you’re like most professionals, your answer is something along the lines of, “When I got to the office I had 137 emails, 4 voice mails and I just dove into it.” Now, I want you to consider a similar question. If I asked you on a Friday afternoon what you got done during the week what would you say? Again, I typically hear something like, “It’s Friday already? I’ve been putting fires out all week!” Unfortunately, I can’t promise you that planning will eliminate all of the challenges you deal with each week. However, I can assure you that a few minutes of planning each day will dramatically increase your productivity over time. “But CJ,” you’ll cry, “I’m working hard every day! I don’t take lunch and can’t remember the last time I got home before 6:30.” The problem isn’t the amount of hours you’re working. The problem is that you’ve got a lot of activity and very little achievement. So, how do you change?

It’s really not all that difficult. First, get a piece of paper and break out your business into its basic components – sales, finance, operations, customer service, etc. Next, review each category and determine if there is a task/project/ etc that you want to achieve during the upcoming week. Keep this list near you at all times. Now that you know what needs to be done in order to have a successful week, make sure that you schedule time each day to work on something that was on your list. If it’s really that simple why isn’t everyone doing it? The reason is that planning for the future doesn’t provide us with the immediate response that we are so used to receiving. Unlike attending a meeting or responding to a customer service issue, thinking about your weekly goals five days in advance seems like a waste of time. As with most things in life, the solution is simple. All you need to do is execute. CJ McClanahan is the founder and president of reachmore, a leadership training and consulting firm, and also the author of “Thrive.” To contact CJ, or to find out more about reachmore, go to www. goreachmore.com.

Hassle free flights, anyone? Commentary by Tracy Line For me, the worst part about travel is dealing with flights. Long layovers, delays, constant gate changes; it can be a hassle. So when I recently read about Legacy Travel Club, a company wanting to provide nonstop flights out of Indianapolis, I had to find out more. Christopher Allen, president of Legacy and the man behind the idea, recently filled me in on his exciting plans. Allen, a former ATA Airlines employee has spent the last few years putting together his strategy for Legacy. The club will offer nonstop leisure flights from Indianapolis to destinations in the U.S. (think Florida and California), Canada and the Caribbean. Flights would come with amenities such as meals, cocktails and free Wi-Fi. Could anything be more exciting? Allen notes that in the past 10 years, Indianapolis has seen a steady decline in nonstop flights. In addition, as airlines struggle with the economy and higher fuel costs, fewer flight choices are available, making it difficult to get from point A to point B. Allen believes there is a need for more nonstop

flights and is determined to fill this need. Currently he is working to purchase a private jet. He recently reached an agreement with a Missouri based investment-banking firm that will work to raise over five million dollars for Legacy. In addition, Allen is selling lifetime memberships to assist with capitol. Memberships range from $1,000 to $5,000 and come with discounted and/or free flights each year for life. Once the club is up and running, lesser priced annual memberships will be offered. Does taking a nonstop, hassle-free flight to the Caribbean or San Francisco appeal to you? If so, visit www.legacytravelclub.com and follow the prompts to let Allen know you’re interested. The more market share he can show, the sooner we can all get where we want to go in a faster, easier fashion. Tracy Line is a travel writer and agent, and the owner of Noblesville Travel.

Book early, book often – Saving a seat on an airline could prove more troublesome than usual. Fewer seats are available for passengers because airlines are using smaller plans in order to cut down on overhead for expensive jet fuel. – miamiherald.com

Grammar Guy On grammar and style

LIFESTYLE

Commentary by Jordan Fischer

Question from Victoria Pennamped, Noblesville: Your article in Current stated that the word president when referring to the president of the United States should not be capitalized. Hopefully, you can enlighten me as to when the following capitalization rule cited from Warriner’s English Grammar and Composition, published in 1965, changed. The rule: “Capitalize a title used alone or following a person’s name only if it refers to a high official or someone to whom you wish to show special respect.” The example: “The President spoke from the White House. [When it refers to the highest official of the United States, President is always capitalized.]”

Answer: Victoria, I’d be happy to take a swing at your question, but I must warn you, we’ve wandered into dangerous territory: style differentiation. As any student of multiple disciplines can tell you, navigating the often-complex differences between competing style guidelines can be a nightmare. While I was still in college, for example, I once took a semester which included a law class, a psychology course, an English seminar and a journalism research seminar. Each of those classes required formal research papers to be written, and each discipline had its own style guide dictating how items like quotations and citations should appear. It was a nightmare.

To demonstrate the variety of style options, I’ve pulled the entries for your question from two of the more well-known style guides used today: The Modern Language Association (MLA) and the Associated Press (AP). The AP Style Book (often referred to as the “journalist’s bible”) states that we should “Capitalize president only as a formal title before one or more names” and leave it “lowercase in all other uses.” Wonderfully enough, the MLA Style Guide seems to disagree, saying that we should “Capitalize titles, like doctor, professor, and judge, when they refer to a specific person.” The brief and fairly vague nature of this entry is the source of controversy. Some read it to mean that titles standing in place of a particular person should be capitalized (see, for example, “The Gregg Reference Manual”) while others do not. That being said, I can tell you there appears to be wide acceptance of a sort of “informal U.S. style” in regards to this particular case, whereby the word “president” when used as a direct reference to the president of the United States is often capitalized as an independent noun. When it comes to matters of style, it’s often less an issue of right or wrong than an issue of what you follow.

Beauty under foot

Commentary by Vicky Earley

While area rugs can be art underfoot, much is expected of this form of flooring. At the same time it provides a focal point in the room, an area rug is expected to warm the floor, create cozy conversation areas, provide a splash of color and be the unifying element that ties colors together. The beauty of a quality area rug can last for many years with the help of proper maintenance. • When first taken out of the packaging and unrolled, a rug may present bulges that will prevent it from laying flat. This happens when a rug is tightly rolled for shipment. The lumps should disappear in a day or two. If the problem persists, simply place a heavy flat object on top of it overnight. • A quality rug pad will protect your floor and secure your rug in place. Rug pads not only improve the life of the rug, but they also work to prevent falls by keeping the rug in place and unwrinkled. • Initially, there will be some shedding of the

• •

wool pile. This is a common occurrence with any wool product and does not reflect on the actual wearability of a rug. Rotate your rug by 180 degrees four times a year so that wear is even and fading from sunlight is minimized. Vacuum, vacuum and vacuum to reduce fiber wear. Vacuuming prevents dirt from being compressed deeper into the pile. The frequency of cleaning varies according to the traffic the rug receives. Caked on dirt is difficult to remove, so remove as much soil while still damp to prevent this from happening. Stains and spills are a fact of life. Never rub the stain, rather gently blot it. Rubbing only forces the stain to penetrate further into the rug If all else fails in cleaning your area rug and you are tempted to break out the chemical cleaner, consider your fiber before you even open the bottle. A wool rug will require different handling from a synthetic product or other natural fibers. Keep your manufacturer’s care information handy.

Removing walls to open up kitchen area Commentary by Larry Greene ORIGINAL KITCHEN: This home is in the Lantern Hills subdivision in Lawrence township on the northeast side of Indianapolis. The standard ranch style home was built in 1961 and included a separate small kitchen, living room and family room. WHY REMODEL: According to the owner, “I knew I wanted to remodel the kitchen and living room. It had a dark, north-facing kitchen and I wanted to open it up to the living room so we could see the backyard. We had a fairly crowded breakfast nook for dining, and we did not want a formal dining room. There was room to just open it all up into a big great room. We like ranches, and love the neighborhood, so we decided to stay put and remodel to our needs.” BACKSPLASH DETAILS: The owner chose a 1/4” back-painted glass for her backsplash. They originally chose a custom color for her backsplash, but they ended up being able to find a standard color, which reduced costs. One key to the beauty of her backsplash was the switch plates. They matched the glass, allowing for a seamless look on the wall. CREATING NEW FLOOR PLAN & CEILING: A structural engineer was hired to design the beams needed in order to remove the interior walls between the kitchen and living room. The homeowner worked with the design team on the changes in the floor plan.

“I feel happy when I wake up each morning and come out to the great room. We never used to use the space, and now that it is so light and bright, we are in there all the time.” Finally, the flat living room ceiling was removed and replaced with a new painted cathedral ceiling. FAVORITE FEATURES: The owner commented on her favorite features. “The Kohler manual foot faucet is one of my favorite things about the new kitchen. It helps me keep everything sanitary while I am cooking. I also like the quartz counter tops and the white cabinets because they help bring light into the kitchen.”
