Just as the colors of spring change our mood in nature, the color on walls change our mood in the interior of our living spaces. Color can evoke emotion-blue is calming while red can b...
Any of you who have seen the movie A FEW GOOD MEN will remember the scene where Tom Cruise is grilling Jack Nicholson on the witness stand.  Finally, out of frustration, Nicholson shouts, "You Want the Truth?  You can't HANDLE the truth!
