While we are on the topic, whatever happened to the McDLT ? Don't we all remember George Costanza skipping around in this 80's commercial for the new McDLT? I have to be honest with you, that was one of my favorite McDonalds burgers. I can't fault them for doing away with it though. The McDLT was sold in a novel form of packaging where the meat and bottom half of the bun was prepared separately from the lettuce, tomato, American cheese, pickles, sauces, and top half of the bun and both were then packaged into a specially designed two-sided container. The consumer was then expected to finalize preparation of the sandwich by combining the hot and cool sides just prior to eating. The company discontinued the sandwich in 1990 to appear more environmentally friendly as it moved away from polystyrene packaging which was integral to the McDLT experience. I just remember a visit to Mickey Dees a few years ago where my wife misread the name of the newest burger called Big 'N' Tasty. I think she read it is Big 'N' Nasty. Imagine her relief.
Hey, at least I still have the old classic jingle for the Whopper committed to memory for use at a later date.

Custom wood vanities, like the one pictured, take a bathroom from vanilla to hot fudge sundae.
Homeowners have not always given such careful consideration to bathroom décor. Bathrooms used to be purely functional, non-public rooms that weren’t worth the effort to make into special places; the designs and finishes available were generic—one size (and one finish) fits all—but not anymore!
Solid design is the basis of good function with many factors needing to be considered. A great vanity design considerings space limitations, storage requirements, light and mirror placement, and sink style.
A custom design will provide the solution to all these layout dilemmas.
