It is amazing when you listen to these bands from the 70s and hear how good the songs still stand up today. The musicianship of these bands are still something to behold.

I've been a beer drinker all my life and love the stuff. Due to recent surgery and advancing age, I've decided to start learning to appreciate the taste of bourbon. After much perusing of this site and others to find out what to try, I picked up a bottle of Buffalo Trace and started having a tot in ...

Does anyone have any recommendations on using a repeater to boost the internet signal strength in their home? I have a large home and want to jack up the signal in other areas of my home away from the office where the router is located. I can find them at Office Depot and Best Buy for around 70 buck...

I am from out of town and was in Baton Rouge on business. I've wanted to stop in and look over the Fresh Market since it has been there and finally had a chance yesterday. Very well laid out and visually appealing store. The selection of items they stock in the fresh sections was great. I ended up ...
| Music Board|| How about Lucinda Williams? - bbqguy on 5/27/12 at 8:18 am|
Reading the favorite female singer thread got me to thinking. Lucinda's song writing, voice, and delivery have become a major staple of my playlist over the years. The fact that she also relies heavily on the blues and rock 'n roll also makes her extremely satisfying to my musical tastes. Any though...

My job gives me the opportunity to travel this fair state of ours. I have always fished freshwater and have plenty of stuff to fish with. I am going to start bringing a couple of rods and reels with me and when I stay in places with salt water fishing close by, I would like to spend some time this s...

It is very simple to use and once you get them sh...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Idea for Saint's Front Office - bbqguy on 10/10/11 at 6:34 am|
Sign Drew Brees for however much money it takes to keep him in black and gold forever.
Do not quibble over the amount he wants, he is worth every penny you could possible give him and will repay you tenfold for the investment in his services.
There, that should be all you need to know to negotiate...

I have been using FF and downloading the latest versions whenever available. I really like the browser and don't want to change. In the last couple of weeks though, I have had a problem with the browser locking up for 30 to 60 seconds when I change or refresh a page. It always comes back but it is v...
| Tiger Rant|| A few observations on the game and season so far - bbqguy on 9/25/11 at 7:49 am|
I didn't mind all the relinquished passing yards as final score is more important than stats.
I am impressed by the number of points put up last night and the offensive efficiency LSU displayed in the game.
If Randle had caught the early third quarter pass in the end zone, it would have been light...

I hope he stays, but I wouldn't hold it against him if he left.
Les has put up with a lot of bull shite in his tenure at LSU, some deserved, most of it undeserved.
The criticism may very well push him away....

After doing all my reading this morning (SI, Sporting News, ESPN, the Advocate, the Times-Picayune, and Guilbeau) because I was up at 5:30 (damn this time change), I have come to several conclusions and observations on the state of LSU football this year:
-The media and fan proclaimed "dumbest, l...

It is early and only the first game of the season.
The coaching staff will get the problems worked out this week.
We will be fine going into Vandy this week-end.
I did not like the way the game ended Saturday night but we were playing a ranked BCS team
NC was not a rent-a-win like Florida,Georg...

I heard his radio show on Sirius for the first time yesterday. That has to be some of the funniest stuff on the radio. The callers do not come off looking very good. I did not know that the bad blood between the Aubies and the RTR ran as deep as it apparently does. It will be interesting to listen t...
