    Default ASHI Soon to be Overtaken by NAHB

    That's right. Until recently ASHI was just one step below Hollywood in handing out self-congratulatory trinkets to its members.

    Now, in steps the NAHB. The winner - hands down.

    What is a <TINKET>????

    A very intelligent, and prolific poster posted a response defending and allowing and condoning poor spelling and syntax and grammar, etc., etc.

    He has lots of sycophants ( one poster referred to them as syncophants in an alternate site; which is amusing to educated individuals who appreciate etymology.)

    ASHI is still La creme de la creme.

    There's a "green" building in Boston that received undue publicity and approbation. It was and may still be an abortion. It received a high rating. However, Bamboo floors had to be torn out and sent to dump. Roof plants died, etc.,etc. Lots of failures---Big time!!

    KB: Pardon the oversight. Surely you can decipher its meaning in context. If not, then it is trinket.

    KB: Here you may want to note that the period at the end of the sentence belongs after the second parenthesis. The additional space between the first parenthesis and the word one is also not correct. But, alas, I still understood that you have learned to differentiate between two distinctly separate, though similar, words. The two are often synonymous, especially when used to describe folks of the Republican sort.

    ASHI is still La creme de la creme.
    KB: Probably should have used simply "creme de la creme". That is, of course, unless you live in Lost Angeles [sic].

    KB: My condolences. Like with many new concepts, there are often a disproportionate number of failures during their initial introductions. Practice makes perfect.
