Doors with sizzle

From a website extolling certain doors:

"FEDERATION. There is a certain Colonial richness about these doors. Maybe it is the timber or the stile and rail step construction, maybe it's the elegant styling; this is a range that will never go out of fashion and will always look at home... EURO. This urbane range of doors creates an undeniable statement of style... routed designs on both sides and feature exclusive square corner rout. They come pre-primed ready for painting or in exotic African Cherry veneer for staining, so you can create your own aesthetic sizzle."

Meanwhile on taps, we struggle with the eternal question - should we have a mixer tap in the kitchen? What would Elizabeth David have done? Once we knock over doors and taps that only leaves lights, drapes, carpet, dinner table, chairs, couch, benchtops, cupboards, handles, doorknobs, rangehood...

We visited our Moonah buddies the McKinnons a week or so ago. They are people who take rangehoods seriously. I have always been bemused and/or indifferent to the charms of the RH but they tried to turn me around. Cameron took off the filter covers and fired her up.


"That's sucking 45 cubic metres per second!" he shouted, with all the pride and enthusiasm of someone who has painstakingly tuned an engine themselves, for maximum performance. "Ha - souped it up yourself did ya?" I joshed. Cameron said "Yes, I did".
