| O-T Lounge|| Golf Board: Pulling up in my golf swing - Rev1897 on 7/16/14 at 10:44 am|
Just started playing a year ago. Am working on mechanics, but getting a lot better. Taken some lessons. My biggest problem seems to be, particularly on my irons, that I am "pulling up," and often top the ball, hit only the ball and never the ground, or miss it entirely.
I just wan...

| Money Talk|| Recent Builds - PPSqFt - Rev1897 on 4/22/14 at 9:11 am|
Appreciate all the help with the ceiling heights in my earlier thread. Meeting with our house designer today. We are planning to build in New Orleans.
We're planning to build about a 4,000 sq foot house. Planning to sub it out myself with some help from family. Anyone recently self-sub and...
| Money Talk|| 10 vs 12 foot ceilings in new construction - Rev1897 on 4/21/14 at 7:41 am|
Wife and I are working on plans with the house designer and downstairs ceiling height is a point of contention. We are building a 4,000sq foot colonial.
We both agree 10 foot is adequate but I am concerned about potential resale... Isn't 10 foot the standard these days?
Wife is concerned that ...
| Money Talk|| Draftsman/Home Designer in New Orleans - Rev1897 on 3/31/14 at 1:20 pm|
I realize we've had some threads on this already, but none of them were focused on New Orleans.
We have a set of house plans that we already like but would like to make some fairly significant changes. I've heard good things about Hollingsworth Design here in New Orleans, but they are $1/sq. ft....
| Pelicans Talk|| Gordon for Tyson Chandler - ESPN Possible Trade - Rev1897 on 2/17/14 at 10:09 am|
ESPN Insider has a trade up that suggests that Pels should trade with the Knicks:
Gordon and Steamer for Tyson, Metta WP and Beno Udrih.

| Pelicans Talk|| Hilton Armstrong -- Should we? Too late. - Rev1897 on 12/12/13 at 10:29 am|
Still kicking around the league. Signed by the Warriors. Blast from the Hornets past!
Apparently he was tearing it up for the Dub's D-League Affiliate.. Reason number 323 that the Pels need a better relationship with our D-League Affiliate.
| Money Talk|| Pondering Sale vs. Rental - Rev1897 on 8/19/13 at 1:11 pm|
I know we get a lot of these threads, but my situation is a bit different.
We are moving from House 1 into House 2, which is an older home on a beautiful lot where we plan to build a new house in the next three years.
House 1 is on the market in a desirable area (River Ridge) but based on the...
| Money Talk|| Identity theft? - Rev1897 on 2/21/13 at 9:53 pm|
Somebody got a hold of my SSN and signed me up for 5 iPhones... One of the receipts came to my father's address and he opened it.
I called the numbers. They are all off. I guess this guy is planning to ship the IPhones over to China or something. Interestingly, there was no request or inquiry fr...

| Money Talk|| Asbestos Tile Roof - Rev1897 on 1/27/13 at 1:14 pm|
Wife and I have found a house that we like, not crazy about it, but mainly because the exterior needs some work.
It's about 3000 sq feet and on a great street, though, so I want to give it a longer look. The price is great, and I think I've figured out why: it has an asbestos tile roof.
| Pelicans Talk|| A Danny Granger deal might make a lot of sense for this team. - Rev1897 on 1/20/13 at 12:02 pm|
According to Chad Ford, he's on the block and the Pacers want a young big man and/or a point guard in return.
We don't really have any salaries that match, other than EG (which works straight up) or Ryno/Aminu/Passquez (which I would rather not do).
So... while he may not be worth our lottery ...
| Pelicans Talk|| Houston waived Scott Machado - Rev1897 on 1/8/13 at 8:48 am|
I know a few on this board were hot for him as an UDFA.... If we hadn't just signed sloan I'd like to see Dell go after him.
Also looks like the Lakers cut Darius Johnson-Odom, both are developmental projects but hey, so is the team. We can always use more guards....

He was released by the Nets... Surely he can contribute at SF.

Anyone roll their bonus into a 401k so as to avoid paying taxes on it now?
Looking at a hefty one and I'm thinking about the best ways to invest and plan with the money. I'm pretty young and my debt is all at good interest rates...
What would you do with a five-figure bonus?...

Anybody have this one? Thinking about getting it. Looks like the benefits aren't as good as the Sapphire Preferred though.
I'd love the Palladium too, but the fee, ugh. :drool:...

I have a 2001 4Runner Limited with 100,000 miles on it.
I'm about to buy a new car (actually I'm buying an old car from my uncle, just a nicer old car).
KBB says the "Good" value is $9,357 ... I know the 4Runners are kind of cult vehicles because they are known to drive 200k+ ... but wow.

We stopped to play some cards on our way to Auburn.
This casino had no tables. All slots. Does not compute.
A casino without tables is a glorified truck stop. Friends, don't stop here....

I have a hotel room at the Econo Lodge Auburn. It's $225 a night and I can't go. They won't let me cancel.
This was the best deal I could find in Auburn for a two-bed, non smoking hotel room. I'll transfer to you, just let me know....
