    CARB does it again

    All of my fellow forum friends in California are due for a most unpleasant surprise.

    Both Mineral Spirits (a.k.a. Paint Thinner) and Lacquer Thinner are now acetone based. I went to the BORG the other day to replenish my supply of both and discovered the change.

    I keep telling LOML, Arizona or Nevada. She keeps saying, "But my friends are here."

    And then there is Jerry's crazy train. Voters approved 8 and the current estimate is 68 and in reality it will probably be 168, BILLION that is.

    Mineral spirits was Petroleum distillates and the other was originally methyl alcohol, methyl ethyl ketone and some other exotics but the most recent "get around the idiots at CARB" was 2-propanone and glycol esters.

    The new stuff is heavily based upon acetone. For some reason CARB does not classify Acetone as a VOC.

    Rich, that last part is bureaucratic BS. Acetone can be some nasty stuff. I only use it when nothing else will do the job.

    You are welcome here in Texas. Pretty much any kind of climate you prefer, great highways, no state income tax, lots of conservatives and the Dallas Cowboys.

    Hey, it's the offseason. Like a true fan, I claim the right to be delusional about their chances.

    Nonsensical optimism is a requirement to be a Cowboys fan isn't it?

    Cowboys fan: "We went 1-15 last season and didn't make any significant roster changes so WE'RE TOTALLY GONNA WIN THE SUPER BOWL!!!!!"

    Cody,
    LOML is watching DWTS and is irritated with me laughing out loud.

    Here in Las Vegas. Spent about $25 yesterday and today in gaming but drank almost too much. We had a good time. After she finds out that Rumer wins we'll pack up for the trip home.
