Re: Pots, plans and floors?

Linoleum is only easy if you like the smell of the horrible adhesive you 
need to stick it down, and of course, you consider it easy to scrape 
that same adhesive off the concrete subfloor when you decide you hate 
that outdated linoleum or when it looks old and faded!  Yuck.  At least 
removing ceramic tile is fun (and therapeutic I might add).  My husband 
thought I was just nuts when I took out the tile at the front door to 
replace it- as least he did until I gave him the hammer and have at it!  
There is something about having permission to smash something that just 
feels good!!  And it is sooooo much easier to remove than nasty vinyl
