Grandma's Egg and Shredded WheatMy grandmother used to feed this to my father when he was a boy. He loves it to this day. I remember the first time she cooked it for me.

Making a Mosaic Back Splash?I am getting ready to remodel the kitchen and want a creative back splash for behind the stove. My thought was to use old advertising magnets and broken beige tile in a mosaic. Since I am disabled and need to mostly sit, I was wondering if I can use a white waterproof backer board and do this? I would also like to say it will totally be without a pattern and just freehand. Any help would be appreciated!
