| Food and Drink Board|| The Old Fashion or Manhattan? - CharlesLSU on 12/22/14 at 5:50 pm|
I've come to favor both but equally.....
Ftr, (old fashion) I don't muddle an orange slice leading to cloudy crap, but leave it to the rind only. Cherries are garnish only....

Bought a fifth for my wife's boss.
At 199.99 is this the world beater I'd expect?
Btw, I hate scotch......I'm a true KY and Irish Whisky man....
| Coaching Changes|| Lets get one thing straight: Harbaugh is NOT Saban - CharlesLSU on 12/17/14 at 6:42 pm|
I've read several comments where people seem to equate them.....bullshite
Saban is the best coach in NCAA history with an unreal trophy case. Until Harbaugh matches that level of success, it's all idle chatter....
| Money Talk|| Banks with good 203K type loans for buy/remodel homes - CharlesLSU on 12/16/14 at 3:12 pm|
We wont qualify for a 203k, but were interested to see if there are banks out there with conventional programs that we could go for.
In a nut shell, we'd buy the home for a set price and finance it for an additional amount to cover construction......I'm sure the construction would follow the typi...

I was originally thinking about a Breitling but decide to take the frugal route. Thing looks like a tank.
I know Broke has one......anyone else?...
| Money Talk|| Year End Bonuses - CharlesLSU on 12/2/14 at 12:33 pm|

| Money Talk|| OPEC threatening energy gold rush in US? - CharlesLSU on 12/1/14 at 7:29 am|
As I read it, this could really frick up the party going on here........can we expect layoffs, homes on the market, etc.?
Considering it is blasting the Ruble, could this have been a calculated economical attack on Russia?...

What is a typical price for a 2 story 3600sf home?
Dual units and all new duct work....... ...
| Tiger Rant|| Miles' broken offensive philosophy solved - CharlesLSU on 11/21/14 at 11:35 am|
A capable QB who is a fit (i.e. pro style)
My other thread repeats this, but I wanted to pose one simple question:
How good was LSU's offense in 2013?
.......the system is fine......the keystone is not. When Les refers to execution, he is spot on but holding back throwing his QBs under t...
| Tiger Rant|| Two keys in turning LSU into an elite team - CharlesLSU on 11/21/14 at 7:13 am|
1. Aggressively recruit the absolute best olineman you can.....whatever it takes. No more projects. Guess who does this? Best way to mitigate a troubled QB system is a strong oline unit.
2. Recruit the QB that fits the system. Les is not going to change his philosophy , so try and find the ro...
| Money Talk|| Real Estate Question: Haggling a Foreclosure - CharlesLSU on 11/20/14 at 2:20 pm|
Say I am looking at a home that the bank is asking $450k for and I offer them $350k.
I understand I am low-balling......the house has been bank-owned for 18months.
What are the realities in securing a price lower than asking?...
| SEC Rant|| MSU and Ole Miss - CharlesLSU on 10/28/14 at 11:11 pm|
Who honestly thinks this year is but an anomaly?
All the gloating, grinding, and melting with an obvious detachment of what happens in less than 12 months. It will be back to LSU, Bama, and Auburn as the kingpins and you fighting for middle ground.
Hell, if either coach bolts, you're truly ...
| O-T Lounge|| Pagin Broke: Military Issue watches - CharlesLSU on 10/27/14 at 1:20 pm|
There is a brand of watch (not Luminox) that I remember seeing that is only available through military channels, but I cannot recall the name.
| Tiger Rant|| Props to the studs as of late: My list - CharlesLSU on 10/27/14 at 1:18 pm|
In no particular order:
Kwon (pure aggression)
Beckwith (has grasped the schemes and plays angry)
Hunter (just hitting his stride)
Adams (loves being a Tiger and his pride shows)
Rasco (has seemed to light up lately)
Godchaux (young Tiger showing more and more motor every game)

Anyone else watch his piece on ESPN Saturday?
I am thrilled at tarnishing his almighty prognostication skills........
| SEC Rant|| Ole Miss - destined to be the runt - CharlesLSU on 10/23/14 at 12:56 pm|
Its interesting that every now and then Ole Miss flashes some brilliance yet seems to always fall back to mediocrity. Maybe this year that recruiting class you all paid so much for will come through, but, alas, you will just keep being Ole Miss afterward.
