| O-T Lounge|| Why is LA the Happiest State? - TigerRob20 on 7/23/14 at 9:50 pm|
I'm not meaning to bring up an old topic here, but I am sure most of you have seen the articles and Facebook posts about how a few cities in LA rank as the happiest in the US. Does anyone have any insight into how this might have been deduced? I have been to multiple cities on the list, and it seems...

I was trying to call WLF, but figured someone here might know the answer to this.

Can someone explain to me the difference between these cameras and the ones that are on residential streets (ie NOLA)? If we are banning cameras on the interstate, why hasn't the argument been made to ban them outright?

I received my policy renewal documentation in the mail today and noticed they are raising hurricane deductibles for all State Farm homeowners to 5%. Has anyone else gotten this? It can't be statewide, because this seems to be the first I have heard of it.

My wife (no pics turkey creek) and I were having a discussion on this earlier. She takes an ungodly long time to pack for any trip. Whether it is for one night, or a week, she takes forever to decide what she wants to bring and procrastinates along the way. As expected, she usually ends up bringing ...
