Question of the Day

I’ve got a small scratch in a maple end table from the 1950s. The table isn’t worth much, but I love it. Can the scratch be covered somehow?
Some scratches can be concealed with a paste of instant coffee and water, although this is not recommended for fine antiques. Put some instant coffee in a small bowl, then sprinkle just enough water on the coffee to make a thick paste. Rub the mixture into the scratch.

Word of the Day

To haul under the keel of a ship, by ropes attached to the yardarms on each side. It was formerly practiced as a punishment in the Dutch and English navies.

Puzzle of the Day

Why is there a difference of only two letters of the alphabet between an accepted and a rejected love?
One kisses his miss, and the other misses his kiss.
