My wife and I are going to Tucson November 1st and while checking driving time, I found out that Arizona doesn’t have DST or at least not in Tucson. :foo:

In the past, Indiana didn't observe it. I don't know about now. Mexico recently passed that law. The next time we fall back will be the last, except possibly for Quintana Roo, home of Cancun. They have been following the eastern USA for some time now, so as not to confuse the tourists but instead confusing the rest of the country. It's possible that this time next year they will be two hours ahead of us.

No, they don’t comply, such a renegade state.

I wonder if that is veneer on there. Can you check that for me datlas ?
Edit: the chipped corner looks like it is. And the disguised nail holes on the section below the chip. I never heard of veneer being nailed on, but if it's thick enough, maybe.

Nope, none of that nonsense in AZ, except up on the Navajo Reservation.

We have a 100 year old mahogany sideboard that I never want to move again.

I am a furniture moran. I know what a veneer is but don’t know how to tell. The thing is indeed quite heavy. My sister gave it to us, and my impression is that she has expensive taste in furniture. I am happy with IKEA which I once heard someone tell me means shyte in Swedish.

I looked carefully and I do think the table (at least the top) is made with veneer. The bottom part looks like not veneer.

We had a fantastic ride today. It was sunny and dry, with a cool breeze. We had 10 riders and everyone mostly behaved.

One easy way to tell if there is a veneer is to look at the edges and the grain. If you look at a corner of that table, the grain flow conflicts and that tells you the surface is a veneer.

You don't get edge grain on perpendicular adjacent surfaces....

Surprised Indy is able to be out cavorting around the countryside with the threat of the railroad strike looming.

Maybe he's not answering his calls and texts?

Last night, while grinding up a local climb on my MTB, I passed a guy wearing a kilt. To complete the package of resplendent manliness, his machine was a fully-rigid singlespeed.

At the top of the climb, I spent a bit of time chatting with the kilted gentleman and his riding partner (wife, I assume). Very nice folks who - it turns out - who know a bunch of people I know.

"Is anything worn under the kilt?"
"Nae, lass! It's all good as new!!!"

So, you didn't make any jokes about, "Shouldn't you be riding a step-through frame?" or such like?

The Older Boy's then-girlfriend either convinced him to buy a kilt, or bought him one. He liked it, and for a while he wore it a lot. Then she broke up with him, and it's languished in his closet since. To be fair, though, he wasn't heartbroken by the breakup, because the relationship itself was more traumatic.

I am careful not to ask too many questions about a man and his kilt. I do not want to be surprised by a swinging shillelagh. This particular kilt-clad gentleman seemed to be quite fit and strong, and type that a soft-edged sort of fellow like myself probably should not poke fun at until a solid friendship is established.

A kilt does seem like an awfully comfortable and practical bit of attire for longing around the house. Since I'm on the verge of having a kid-free residence, maybe it's time to explore my Scottish roots.

The world is facing impending doom on Friday, and the railroad's lawyer is not taking calls. I love it. I want that gig!

:lol:

Hey, when it's kid free, clothing optional is definitely worth considering.

Gets a bit ugly as you get older though.

A bit?
