Nuts in America

I once heard a comedian joking about how lawsuit-crazy we are in America and how we’ve become so over protective about everything.  He went on to joke that, “we even have warnings on packages of nuts that the package might contain nuts.”  I thought it was funny but an exaggeration, until I saw the package below (click for a larger image).

Raised Kitchen Bar

This is something I saw in a new Dumbo apartment.
I don’t like exactly how the bar is wood and the counter
another texture, but maybe something to consider for
our renovation.  It would allow a normal height bar and
keep the counter the same.  It would also keep ugly kitchen
stuff  out of view from the rest of the room.
