I'm moving into a new home in Ascension Parish, and would like to get some minor home theater enhancements done. By that I mean, wiring up surround sound, getting the TV mounted above the fire place, and making sure there is a minimal amount of wires showing (ie, zero). I could do this all myself, b...

My wife and I are house hunting in Ascension parish, and have found a nice place that is zoned for the central school district. How does it compare to other schools it compare to other schools in the area? On most rankings I've seen it is around a 7, while Prairieville is usually a 10, so we are a ...

She said she want's to get into a game, but I'm not sure what to get her. She loved Dragon Age Origins, and liked Dragon Age II. She also liked the Uncharted series. She loves games with a good story, but isn't too much into the shooting (ie, she'd get frustrated during the shooting sections of unch...

Which was very dumb on my part. There is a stipulation that to be able to cancel your membership, you either have to have a doctor's excuse saying you can't work out again ever, or you are moving 50 miles away from a Rush fitness center.
I should have known this, because I should have read every ...

So my wife and I have been renting while she has been in grad school up here in Knoxville.
