Just wanted to thank everyone who helped me with this tile floor,
particularly G Henslee whose advice throughout this was of tremendous value.
I haven't set the tiles yet because things took somewhat longer than I
figured and I have to have the oven in place for the counter top guys to do
their measurements. I didn't want to put the weight of the stove on freshly
thinsetted/grouted tiles w/o more time to cure than I have before they get
here. No matter, I have everything I need numbered and it will all go back
into place. I have extra tiles and a different saw lined up should i manage
to break one setting them.

Overall I'm pretty happy. For my first try at this with what turned out to
be a pretty tricky layout and unforgiving grout lines I think it's going to
turn out really nicely. I probabably will opt for shoe moulding around the
toe kicks but even that will look fine.
Again thanks to all who pitched in advice. G consider yourself invited to a
BBQ if you're ever in the San Diego area.
