well up until now I have only taken advantage of the great "100 year birthday" specials at the grocery stores. Lol. but then I don't get out much!

I have been to that Tucson Gem and Mineral show. Wow was my take on it. It does not surprise me that it is the largest.

I see a lot of rodeos and fiesta about but the Native scene seems a bit skinny on that list. What do you think Mr T T ?

Some weird laws in Arizona:

Tucson - Women may not wear pants.

Tombstone - It is illegal for men and women over the age of 18 to have less than one missing tooth visible when smiling.

Prescott - No one is permitted to ride their horse up the stairs of the county court house.

Mohave County - A decree declares that anyone caught stealing soap must wash himself with it until it is all used up.

More dumb laws:

When being attacked by a criminal or burglar, you may only protect yourself with the same weapon that the other person posseses.

You may not have more than two dildos in a house.

No more than six girls may live in any house.

Cards may not be played in the street with a Native American.

"Inventions" in Arizona

1. Miranda rights
You have the right to remain silent thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court's 1966 ruling in Miranda vs. Arizona, which tossed out a conviction from Maricopa County Superior Court and established the Miranda warning. It has been a useful filler for TV crime-show writers ever since.

2. The planet that wasn't
On Feb. 18, 1930, a young astronomer at Flagstaff's Lowell Observatory named Clyde Tombaugh discovered Pluto, which enjoyed three-quarters of a century as the ninth planet in our solar system - in textbooks and wall posters throughout the world - before it was officially demoted to "dwarf planet."

3. Tree-ring dating
Lowell Observatory also plays a role in dendrochronology, the science of using tree rings - the growth patterns formed in a cross-section of the trunk - to pinpoint dates in archaeology and paleontology. (It has also become a key tool in the science of climate change.) Astronomer A.E. Douglass began developing the system in Flagstaff in the 1890s. In 1937, he founded the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research at the University of Arizona.

Arizona celebrates a century of statehood

A century ago, a Western territory became the 48th star on the flag.

Arizona then was a different place than it is today. The Grand Canyon was here, of course, and the saguaro-studded hillsides of the low desert. The monoliths of Monument Valley towered in the northeast. The Native American tribes had long been here, and some of the early settlers. But there were no freeways, no skyscrapers, no Hoover Dam.
