For the first time in a very long time, I find myself not at work on a Friday afternoon. It is not even 3 pm and yet Essen is gridlocked. Wtf? Do this many people not work on Friday afternoons? Did I somehow get transported to France where everyone works 30 hours a week? How are there this many...

I purchased an impressive looking wind-up mantle-piece clock from Goodwill that does not work but does still have the winder. Anyone know the best place to get it repaired in Baton Rouge?
| Outdoor Board|| Board's opinion of ATV brands? - LeonPhelps on 6/5/14 at 12:16 pm|
What is your favorite ATV brand and why? I am specifically researching Arctic Cat for potential investment if you could provide your opinion of their products or why you prefer a competitor.
Also, it appears the only place near Baton Rouge to buy an Arctic Cat is in Denham Springs. Anyone know ...
| O-T Lounge|| Why do random prisoners collect call me from jail? UPDATED w/ follow-up - LeonPhelps on 4/27/14 at 7:12 pm|
It seems that once a month I get a collect call on my office line from some stranger in jail. Obviously, I decline every time as I never recognize the name provided or the voice saying the name. I would write it off as a wrong number, but it happens too often for that unless my number is one digit...

Anyone have a good experience with a reasonably priced cleaning service in Baton Rouge? I need to get my house thoroughly cleaned prior to next Tuesday. Merry Maids was recommended to me but their earliest availability is next Tuesday.

| More Sports Board|| In 2 playoff games, Broncos have punted once total - LeonPhelps on 1/19/14 at 5:24 pm|
The scores being put up might not quite reflect it, but Manning is having one hell of a post-season! Converting nearly every third down and making the plays to run out the clock when needed. Hard to beat that!...
| O-T Lounge|| If there are people who actually think they are the opposite gender, - LeonPhelps on 1/17/14 at 4:18 pm|
then are there people who think they are really, say, a dog trapped in a human's body? It is equally as nonsensical as thinking you are a woman trapped in a man's body or vice versa. Just curious because I have never heard of such a phenomenon. ...

She will turn 4 this month. I bought her a piggy bank that counts the money as you put it in for her upcoming birthday. She is above average intelligence, just to give you an idea of what we are dealing with (both parents are pretty bright).
I want to teach her the value of money by charging he...

1. Peyton Manning

Surprisingly, Tom Brady only made honorable mention. I sense some bias, however, since Wilson is his cur...

Am I the only one that sided with the citizens of Elysium and not the illegals trying to break into their private property and take what isn't theirs? I wanted Matt Damon to fail so badly.

| More Sports Board|| The House That Manning Built - LeonPhelps on 10/17/13 at 9:06 am|
This video is awesome, to me anyway as a huge Peyton Manning fan that changed allegiance from the Colts to the Broncos when he changed teams. It is a fan made video that appears to start with NBC's promotional video for the Broncos/Colts game and then adds to it.
| More Sports Board|| Broncos offensive line continues to be decimated - 4 starters injured - LeonPhelps on 10/14/13 at 11:51 am|
Broncos lost their first and second team centers for the year in training camp, forcing them to move a backup guard over to center. That guard had never played center before in his life (2 bad snaps yesterday led to turnovers, incidentally).
Then the Broncos lost their starting All-Pro left tack...

| More Sports Board|| NFL 2013 season-to-date total QBR as of today - LeonPhelps on 10/7/13 at 9:39 pm|
Peyton is dominating it and should break his own record by year-end. Brees has been moving up the list and should easily overtake Rivers by year-end. I think this metric gives Luck the credit he deserves as he is playing exceptional football without the gaudy stats to show for it (not one 300 yard...
