Avelo is the first of two realistic new domestic startup airlines to announce specifics about how and when it will actually start flying. West Coast travelers are the first winners: Avelo ("ah-VEE-lo") will fly nonstops into 12 regional destinations from a base at Burbank Airport in the LA area. Those 12 destinations, with service varying from daily to three weekly, are, in order of starting date, Santa Rosa, April 28, Pasco, Bozeman, Mesa (Phoenix), Ogden, Monterey, Grand Junction, Medford, Eugene, Redmond to Bend, Eureka to Arcata, and Redding, May 30.

Amtrak already has a list of projects to fund if it gets the billions it expects from a big infrastructure bill. And some of its proposals can be put into effect rapidly, which is a big change from many other infrastructure proposals. Typically, even "shovel ready" projects need years to show results, but some of Amtrak's ideas are "service ready." Basically, infrastructure required for many Amtrak needs is already in place: Amtrak just adds trains to existing operational rail systems. So Amtrak can quickly add as many routes as it is able to equip and staff within a short time.

Q: Tim, she who must be obeyed (SWMBO) has informed me that the two flat-screen TVs in the unopened boxes must be installed in days. One TV will end up on our bedroom wall, and the other is to go over a living room fireplace. There’s a huge window there. Fortunately, the TV is wider than both the window and the wood trim surrounding the window. How in the world do I attach the flat screen bracket to glass? Do you have any other tips to share about how to get this right the first time? It’s best not to anger SWMBO. Next time you’re near Houston, I’ll gladly take you out for some superb seafood. —Chris M., Tomball, Texas
