| Outdoor Board|| Fishing in Walden Ponds in BR - BullredsRus on 6/14/14 at 10:08 pm|
Is it decent? I'm assuming its not public, but I have a very close friend that lives there. So would I be able to be his guest, or do you have to actually own property there? TIA
I don't do any fresh water fishing, but would like to try it out. Looking to stay in BR if possible. I would be i...
| O-T Lounge|| Any ideas as to why my deck is covered in fungus? - BullredsRus on 5/12/14 at 12:17 pm|
I have a lot of trees overhead and I am wondering if that's what's causing it. I just notice a lot of green on my wooden surfaces under the trees. It's my deck, and fence too. I've even noticed it on some of my bricks on my house. I've had it power washed somewhat recently, but it keeps coming b...
| Money Talk|| Small business owner here, question about setting up a cafeteria plan for myself - BullredsRus on 3/7/14 at 12:37 pm|
I pay myself a salary, but would like to set up a cafeteria plan that my company would contribute to. Basically it would be the exact amount to cover my health insurance premium. In this example, let's say the premium is $850 a month. If I were to set up a voluntary contribution from the company ...
| More Sports Board|| Question for NCAA football bettors - BullredsRus on 1/6/14 at 1:58 pm|
I'm in a pool where I win between 250-1000 if FSU wins tonight. Straight up, no point spread. I win 1000 if total points are between 65-71. Like I said worst I can do is 250 if FSU wins. My local guy is giving me 10 points with Auburn. Would you take the 10 points on Auburn just to hedge bc I b...

| Money Talk|| Starting an IRA on your own vs through a financial advisor - BullredsRus on 12/28/13 at 8:59 am|
I'd like to set up a SEP IRA through my business. I can go to Scotttrade on Citiplace here in BR and give them a check and they told me it would be available to invest in 2-4 hours after. There may be a $17 load charge. If I were to go to a financial advisor here in town, what do they typically c...

I need to transfer some money from a business account to my personal account and I'd like to do it before December 31st for tax purposes. I pay myself a salary, but apparently not enough. I'm looking to take about 30K out and trying to figure out the best way to do it. I could do a bonus and pay...
| Money Talk|| How to evaluate stocks - BullredsRus on 11/3/13 at 9:15 pm|
I am considering buying into TTS. It's lower than its been in a while. I read there 2nd and 3rd quarter net profits are about 25 percent up from last year. It has been as high as $30 a share within the last three months, but is now in a dip and closed at $22.44 a share and I'm thinking this may ...
| Money Talk|| Anybody here do a second home loan? - BullredsRus on 6/21/13 at 4:03 pm|
Looking at possibly buying a weekend camp in False River or Toledo Bend. Are there restrictions on how many miles it has to be from your primary residence in order to qualify? I thought you could do 10% down for a second home if it was "X" miles from your house but maybe that is old info. ...

I have a lowrance HDS 5. Can I program the coordinates from save our lake's website into my unit and find them? Anybody have any luck fishing any of them? More specifically the reef balls located in St. Charles parish bc we'll be launching at the peavine launch out of Laplace. Will try the power...
| Outdoor Board|| Anyone familiar with Lowrance HDS units? - BullredsRus on 5/8/13 at 8:28 pm|
I know they have the lake insight and nautic insight models. The last one I had said "US Base Map W/O XD Card". I thought it was a nautic insight, but am now wondering if I was wrong. Could this be why it showed me on land when I was clearly on my boat in the water (sometimes not even very close ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Question to those who have made their own bacon - BullredsRus on 3/13/13 at 8:22 am|
Trying it for the first time. I looked at several recipes and videos before doing so. I'd say it was about 50-50 on removing the fat/skin before curing or after smoking. Any advice there? I have mine on still but am thinking about cutting it off. Did you flip it every other day, and if so did y...

Asked this on the OT, but wanted to try here too.
Thinking of adding a detached 2 car garage, and just wondering if anyone has done it and what kind of cost to expect. Nothing too fancy, cement slab, wooden exterior, asphlat roof, no air or heat. Maybe a little storage room on the side if there i...

| O-T Lounge|| Can you grow grass under a big tree - BullredsRus on 2/14/13 at 6:26 pm|
I have a rather large water oak in my backyard, and I'm contemplating getting sod this spring. There are lots of roots that break the surface of the ground, but I could add a lot of dirt if that's a problem. I will cut the tree down if I have too, but trying to save that money to put in other plac...

I bought a rental house in November of last year. I'm doing my taxes right now, and Turbotax is giving me a $600 depreciation on it (purchase price was $195). Does this sound right? Are they giving me depreciation of a pro-rated amount since I purchased so late in the year?...

I'd like to see both of these, and we have a babysitter tomorrow night so I'll get to see one. If history repeats itself, it may be a while before I get back to a movie theatre and they won't be there any longer. So if you have seen both, which in your opinion is better?...

I am wanting to start buying rental houses to hold onto for the long term, not flipping.

Also, do you think a 1 million umbrella policy is adequate in the early stages for l...

| Outdoor Board|| outboard sputters on way out, and then is fine all of a sudden - BullredsRus on 9/24/12 at 4:36 pm|
The last two trips we took, our motor would start off OK, and then start to lose power. The first time it didn't do it until we had been riding for about 15-20 minutes. We had it full throttle and were only going 9 mph (usually goes close to 40). SO we stopped to fish (since we were already out). ...
