Two intriguing ads seen on the tube this past weekend:

-One for Luter's Supply in Tylertown, MS. The pronunciation of the name was what got my attention. "Renovating your home? Tired of waiting six to eight weeks for your fixtures to arrive? Then come to Looter's Supply for all your bathroom and kitchen needs!" Or something like that.

Nice to know there is a place not too far from the greater New Orleans area where one can take home the Toto Neorest, "the world's most advanced toilet".

-An ad for the T-130. Is it a bazooka? Is it a surface to air missile? A secret government project?

Alas, it is only a home supposedly designed to withstand winds up to 130 mph . Good news is, they're local. They build on-site and can jack up your house to a maximum height of nine feet. No mention of what the cost is, however... all they promise is that there will be no "hemming and hawing" over the cost. If they are doing right by their clients, more power to 'em.

I don't think a Neorest is standard in the T-130, however. You'll have to schlep to Mississippi for that.
