| Food and Drink Board|| FDB 2fer this weekend - Debaser on 8/25/14 at 9:47 am|
Used the Jambalaya calculator to make a 4 pound rice jambalaya and totally nailed it - as usual. Served about 25 folks for the Saints preseason game.
Last night, used the "reverse sear" on some prime 1.5 inch ribeyes. Nailed again....

| Music Board|| KoL / BTE this weekend in NOLA - Debaser on 4/14/14 at 9:51 am|
I went all in on KoL tix. I had 8 tix in the first 4 rows, a limo, etc. I have seen KoL 3 times, once in 2007 at HOB NOLA - which was an amazing show, the other time at Jazz fest - I think in 2009 or 2010. The JF show and the one this weekend were really - boring.
The played well, but they w...

| Outdoor Board|| Woodcock hunting in Sherburne WMA - Debaser on 12/11/13 at 12:00 pm|
Has anyone done this before? I've never hunted woodcock and never hunted a WMA. I was thinking about going because I have a good GSP that I would enjoy seeing work woodcock. I have no idea how to hunt them, if they are any good to eat, etc. I spoke to another GSP owner from MI who hunts them in ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Chicago Spice House - Debaser on 12/10/13 at 3:23 pm|
The garlic thread got me wondering what the FDB regs use for spices, seasonings. Mrs. Debaser places orders on the reg with Chicago Spice House. I love their seasonings. Dried Italian herbs, telicherry pepper corns, Thyme, lemon pepper, orange pepper, Chive-pepper, cayenne, garlic powder and granu...
| Tiger Rant|| Did the FB Tigers meet, exceed or fall short of your expectations this season? - Debaser on 12/2/13 at 9:53 am|
With the regular season over - how did Les's boys handle the season in your opinion, based on how you thought they would do before it started?
They met my expectations. I thought a 9-3 year was what we had coming. I knew the road schedule would be tough. I thought the defense would have a tou...
| O-T Lounge|| AT&T iPhone contracts - Debaser on 11/4/13 at 1:29 pm|
Whenever I get the newer model phones, I usually just pay the full cost without a contract, but I heard someone at a store who would get a new phone with the new phone and contract pricing. Deactivate the old line and transfer the number to the new phone. Is this possible? ...

I am looking for a hunting club with a lodge to join. I really am pretty much a weekend hunter, but would like to go a bit during TG holidays, etc. Looking to pay approx $5000 or so. Any advice? Is it too late for this year?...
| O-T Lounge|| Fellow OT CPAs post your last minute client rants here - Debaser on 10/15/13 at 5:00 pm|
This being the day when the procrastinators who got you their tax info a few days/weeks ago get to file and (usually) owe, I am interested in your "war stories." (without giving up any confidentialities, of course...)
I have a few.
One client that reports shite ton of income ($2million+) and re...

| Music Board|| Replacements Live in Chicago 09/15/13 at Riot Fest - Debaser on 9/17/13 at 11:38 am|
I have returned from my Chicago trip and I thought I would do you folks a favor and tell you what I saw.
First things first. I am a 45 year old Houma, LA native. I have been a Replacements fan since 1985. In the years before the internet, liking a band like the Replacements was work, requiring...
| Food and Drink Board|| Atlanta restaurant scene is strong - Debaser on 7/16/13 at 9:17 am|
I just spent the weekend in Atlanta visiting family and came away very impressed with the vibrancy of the Atlanta restaurants in which Mrs Debaser and I had the pleasure of dining.
Since my two brother in laws are chefs, we hit their places:
Bantam and Biddy - very casual. Chicken and waffles...
| O-T Lounge|| What's up with the Baker area camera speeding enforcement? - Debaser on 7/1/13 at 4:16 pm|
My dog is "enrolled" in summer school and when I drove through the shitty hamlet of Baker to pay a training visit, I evidently was speeding and received a citation in the fricking mail from some speeding camera operation in Arizona. I guess it is legit, because they had my picture correct, but I was...

Can one of you guys who follow basketball recruiting closely tell me something about Lionheart Leslie and where he may be going to play college ball?

I was a successful bidder for the Replacements new ep, Songs for Slim. I received it earlier this week. For those who don't know, this is an ep the Mats issued to raise funds for the medical care of Slim Dunlap who had a massive stroke some time in 2012.
So what we have here is a five ...

Can someone let me know if you need to order LSU baseball tix if you are an LSU student?
My son is at LSU now, but I recall when I was there, we just showed up with the ID and they let you in. Lot's of changes since 1990......

He is a Freshman and will be living at the Cottages. I was at LSU 1987-1990, which is evidently the the dark ages. I lived at Sharlo townhomes and in the fraternity house (which was condemned when I was living in it), including a brief one semester stint on GSRI (eesh).
LSU did not have any "t...
