| O-T Lounge|| History Fans - Great Story about WWII Bomber Pilot and German Fighter Pilot - SpqrTiger on 3/13/13 at 9:37 am|
Sorry if already posted. The story is a few days old, but I haven't seen it linked.
CNN published a long article about an American B-17 pilot whose helpless plane was spared by a German fighter pilot in 1943.
The two pilots met later in life and became best friends.
It's a really good read...

I'm sure there are many sharp-eyed viewers among us, so maybe you did notice this. I did on my second viewing.
Gandalf's staff is different in Fellowship of the Ring than in the Hobbit.
I'm sure a lot of you caught that.
But did you notice that the staff he is using in that movie belongs t...

Okay... I'm a little late getting to this one. I watched it last night on HBOGo and I felt compelled to say a few things about it.
This movie is a lot better/deeper than I was expecting. The movie has the usual set of Cameron Crowe devices to pull at your heartstrings, but 80% of the time it pu...

Any tips to make sure they say soft?
Also, does anyone have any ideas for adding flavor to them like citrus zest or something like that? Anything unusual work good for you?...

| Money Talk|| Car totaled - how to get best settlement with insurance? - SpqrTiger on 11/21/12 at 12:12 pm|
Not at fault. Not ticketed.
Got rear-ended and the car was totaled.
Insurance company's first offer (car value + TTL minus my deductible) is about $2,400 less than what I was expecting.
Any negotiating tips to suggest as far as getting their offer to come higher?

My girlfriend and I are beginning to talk details about getting married and buying a house soon in one of the outlying areas around Baton Rouge. She wants a more rural kind of house. Not a subdivision if it can be avoided.
Do any of you know of any nice areas that are maybe a little off the radar...

Air Force is my #2 team in all of NCAA athletics, behind LSU, so I'm really excited that they're coming to town this weekend.
I think LSU should make an effort to schedule the service academies more often because it's good for everyone involved. The academies get someone exciting on the schedule...
| Movie/TV Board|| Black Death - SpqrTiger on 1/19/12 at 12:10 am|
I rented this one and gave it a view last night.
I have to say, I liked it quite a bit.
It's a movie that's obviously shot on a budget, there's no CGI in it. It's gritty and nasty.
Plenty of violence and blood.
A couple of the ...

She's up for the Lowe's Senior Class Award, and she is of course, very deserving of it.
