| O-T Lounge|| Using an ipad in the pulpit - AthensTiger on 7/28/13 at 6:37 pm|
I have not seen it but I know some preachers are going to an ipad instead of a Bible while preaching. I know some older folks have a problem with that. Does your preacher use one, and how does the congregation like it? Seems to me it can be useful up there....
| Outdoor Board|| My friend gave me all his guns - AthensTiger on 6/1/13 at 8:03 pm|
He suddenly decided he did not want guns in the house because of his kids. I told him I would buy them. He said no just take them. I said yes I would buy them. He said just donate money to a charity. So I am trying to place a fair value on four guns. The first is a Browning Gold Hunter, 12 ga, 3 1...
| Outdoor Board|| LSU Forestry grads - BSF no more - AthensTiger on 5/14/13 at 8:36 pm|
They sent out a letter to alumni saying the B S in Forestry is no longer offered. Sad end to what once was a respected program . Forestry will now be an 'area of interest' or something like that under another major....

Our Bose home surround sound Acoustimass module was damaged by lightning. I called the Bose technical service. They gave me a cost of $171 shipping included, and emailed the prepaid UPS shipping label. The subwoofer was back in one week and works. This was the easiest, most painless experience I hav...
| O-T Lounge|| Home Theater geeks -help please - AthensTiger on 12/27/12 at 4:41 pm|
We had a lightning strike back in August. It took out both TVs, the blu ray player, receiver, modem, home security system. We replaced all of these. We are not big movie watchers and just got around to playing a movie. We have a Bose acoustimass 6 speaker system (5.1). There is no sound from the...

I am in the middle of a tear-down and rebuild of my Series 0, 1968 model. I found the aluminum disc drive at the Snapper dealer's and am about to put it all back together. The man at the dealer store told me Snapper is about to discontinue production of RER's. :banghead:...

| O-T Lounge|| Genealogists-I have some old letters - AthensTiger on 6/2/12 at 12:58 pm|
I have roughly 120 letters sent to my Grandad in the summer of 1918 as he was training to go over to France in WW1. Except for a few from the family, the others are from girls and other Marines who probably lost contact with him. Anyway these letters are in very good condition and are interesting, ...

If anyone is interested, they just released the 1940 census after the 72 year waiting period. I found our family in Pointe Coupee Parish. I had to just know which community to look for and browse. I don't think you can search by name. Some interesting stuff there.

I have been doing this for a few years and want to share the recipe. I don't know calories or other numbers but it seems healthy and tastes good. You can use McCann's oatmeal but I get mine at Trader Joe's (8 minute quick cook)for a better price.

The voice of the Dawgs died this week. I am LSU all the way but in honor of this great broadcaster, here is my favorite: UGA vs Tenn 1980.
"Tennessee leading 15-2, the crowd roaring against Georgia trying to make them drop it so they can't hear. We hand it off to Herschel, there's a hole, 5, 10, 1...

If you have late tomatoes, now is the time to pull some green ones and fry 'em up. We had our first real frost today so they will go bad soon. I had some a few days ago and they were tasty. I used egg/milk to soak them and coated them with flour, salt, pepper and, of course, Slap ya Mama. Gotta do m...

| O-T Lounge|| Beer Growler - AthensTiger on 4/10/11 at 4:03 pm|
I had never heard of this until I stumbled upon one yesterday. They have opened two of these beer-to-go places here in Athens this year because of a new interpretation of the Georgia state law. You buy a 64 ounce empty jug for $4 and they fill it with draft beer of your choice for another $5 or mor...

in the S at the 1:05 mark of the video posted on the TD front page? Had a guy at work tell me the penalty was not fair because there were no flags dropped. These Dawgs are just in a bad mood this year. Please post other flag pics if you have them. Thanks....
