OMG... LOL I suggest you look up the word pedant. That was the strangest post ever.

Like December 29, 2017 at 8:35PM I was just following the conversation. Thought whom ever posted the Pendant thing was defining it as well , In any case all I said about sinks, myself etc. I stand be hind as factual to the best of my knowledge. I am not PC literate and don't always understand these posting routines. My rebuttal was intended to whom ever considered my post as ''pedant''. Your correct, for me at least, it was not clear enough. I suppose if I had looked more closer I would have seen the post were two different people. In reality I did not turn on you. I made the assumption that it was the same person describing the term they had used. Sorry , we both misunderstood.

I agree with both you, Grandpa Ken and Dana as well. I'm 79 so I know OLD too. Grandpa's right that modern advertising distorts the meanings of all sorts of words for its own purposes, and that in order to communicate sometimes we have to adapt our language to modern usage even when we know it's not totally accurate. Dana is being helpful and contributing knowledge and personal experience; that's valuable. I'm all for precision in language (nice to meet another author/artist, Dana!) but after all that isn't Houzz's primary purpose. Thanks for an informative discussion!
