Speaking for myself, I want to be younger and get into more trouble.I have to disagree. There isn't necessarily anything wrong with burgundy, but it isn't as versatile as dark brown, especially if you travel.
The most versatile shoe style, bar none, is the chukka boot. Nothing else will work with everything from a suit to jeans. For a second shoe, you need dark brown. Stay away from things like "chestnut". They are great if you have lots of money to spend and know what you are doing. But they are too finicky and don't belong in a basic wardrobe. In this example, the pebble grain takes it down a notch in formality, as does the storm welt. Having said that, depending on the...
My antivirus software just blocked an attack by something called "Angler Exploit Kit Website 6" that came from SF. Apparently, this is something hackers insert in the code of a legitimate website that often puts ransomware on your computer. https://blogs.sophos.com/2015/07/21/a-closer-look-at-the-angler-exploit-kit/
I'm curious. Did you consider putting a gentle curve on the top of the feet as seen in that antique Shaker table that came up about a hundred pages back? BTW, I have to say that I really like how you seriously over-engineer this stuff. You could pogo on that coffee table. My first coffee table was more-or-less made of cardboard and I can report that, unlike yours, it was not designed to withstand dancing.
I bet she's thrilled. I still want to know what she's going to put in this thing. I can only assume this cabinet is going to be locked in a bank vault.SG, could you discuss your choice of hinges?
The table was nothing special. What sold me was the SF gun check upholstery on the chairs.
Far too detailed post about chocolate. [[SPOILER]] TLDR version: Next time you are in Belgium or France, go find a good place that makes fresh chocolates.This is has always gone on but hipsters have the worst case of "authentitis" in decades. For people like this, whether something is "good" or not, depends on whether something is "authentic" and niche. The vast majority of these people wouldn't know good chocolate from shoe polish -- keep in mind that these people eat...
Very interesting. I kind of like the idea of a business model based on a sort of luxury placebo effect.What is most amusing to me is that, for my money, all chocolate bars are kind of crap anyway. They are tempered and often dosed with stabilizers and preservatives to make them tough enough to ship and to provide them with a decent shelf life. Real chocolate is made for immediate consumption and, when properly prepared, is closer to a religious experience than a food item....
