Blog Guy, I am really pumped about the Civil War 150th anniversary stuff coming up. Aren’t you?
Blog Guy, I need your help with redecorating our dining room.
We want something really new. You know, something dinner guests will remember.
I hear you. Get yourself down to a store called The Seat of Power and ask to see their dictator-themed dining room ensemble. It’s called the Martinet Set.
