How to Choose Interior Paint by Sherman Williams

The type of paint you'll use depends on how the room to be painted will be used and the type of finish you want. 
Interior paint is specifically formulated to provide:

Good hiding ability
Good coverage
Spatter resistance
Easy touch-up

New law lets out-of-state grandkids save big by attending Florida’s public universities

For the first time this fall, hundreds of high-performing students who live outside of Florida only will need to pay in-state tuition and fees to attend universities, saving thousands of dollars.
It’s all thanks to a new Florida law, taking effect in August, that lets them pay lower prices as a result of their grandparents living in Florida. The plan has proven so popular that most, if not all, the universities say they already have all their allotted openings filled up for the coming year. So anyone applying now may face a wait list.
