| Political Talk|| Don Lemon discussing Automatic weapons RE:Ferguson - RaginCajunz on 8/20/14 at 10:28 pm|
I just paused on CNN flipping around and watched Don Lemon argue that anyone can buy an automatic weapon, and that he has purchased them. The guest just tried to explain how wrong he was. Lemon then argued that it was semantics and an automatic weapon was one that allowed you to fire off a number o...
| Food and Drink Board|| Any Dishwasher Recommendations? - RaginCajunz on 8/19/14 at 7:41 pm|
I'm about at my wit's end with my current dishwasher. It is the best, worst dishwasher ever. It is whisper quiet and cleans very well.
| Food and Drink Board|| Schlotzsky's signs up in Gonzales - RaginCajunz on 8/16/14 at 8:17 pm|
I passed the old KFC on Airline today and they have "Now Hiring Schlotzsky's" signs up in the windows and have been doing some construction work on the building.
Just passing it along. I enjoyed their sandwiches, but they had a near-100% track record of screwing up my order. ...
| O-T Lounge|| Refueling or Jet/Jet Escort? (Pville flyover with pictures) - RaginCajunz on 7/29/14 at 7:59 pm|
I was out taking pictures with my toddler and trying to get him to say funny things on video and he spotted a "star." From the naked eye the planes looked like one, they were high enough up and catching a lot of reflection from the sun. I thought maybe refueling as I looked from the ground, but th...
| Food and Drink Board|| Impressed with Mr. Ronnie's Donuts ... - RaginCajunz on 7/25/14 at 9:57 pm|
Donuts in this city largely suck IMO. I don't eat them often, and that has changed to almost never since living in this part of the state. I grew up with Ruddock's in Crowley. They are still the best and will always be my yardstick for donuts. I've tried Sam's in Walker. While they were hot and...
| Food and Drink Board|| Fig Time - fresh picked and now canned (lots of pictures) - RaginCajunz on 7/20/14 at 12:07 am|
The wife, kiddo and I went to Opelousas today and picked figs at Beaucoupe Figs. It was a fun afternoon once we dodged the rain. I recommend it if you are in need of fresh figs and don't mind picking yourself. The guy must have about a hundred large fig trees out there. We paid $4/gallon.

My Foodsaver has served me well for the past 8+ years, but finally bit the dust this morning. Is there any real difference between the models out there? I know Cabelas has some they consider "commercial" [link=(http://www.cabelas.com/product/Home-Cabin/Food-Processing/Vacuum-Sealers%7C/pc/10479888...

Just passing it along, they had brisket for $1.99 a lb at the Siegen Target. It wouldn't have been news a few years ago, but this is the cheapest I've seen around here in a good while. ...

The lineup showed up on my FB feed and I had a good laugh. I can only imagine the scene late Saturday (June 14th)

My short list of wishes has come true for the new Leblanc's shopping center.
Baton Rouge-based Izzo’s Illegal Burrito has reached a deal with the Lagniappe Center at 14639 Airline Highway to open its first Ascension Parish restaurant in the center this fall. "We have been looking into Ascension...

From KATC in Lafayette
Acadiana observers will be able to see the International Space Station go by tonight between 9:16 and 9:19 PM CDT. Look for it coming from low in the northwestern sky through a position between the Big Dipper and the North Star. When under the Big Dipper it will be about mi...

I just grabbed a bag at the store. It seems like there has been some mentions of this flavor having gone away for a few years.
| Food and Drink Board|| Gonzales Getting a Jimmy John's - RaginCajunz on 4/8/14 at 10:56 am|
I saw this earlier. I'm guessing from the Big Lots in the background, this is the Papa Murphy's building. I occasionally eat JJs and never eat PM, so it is an improvement in my book. I'm sure there will be 47 posts to let us know why JJ's sucks and is overrated.
| Food and Drink Board|| New - more affordable Thermapen - RaginCajunz on 1/17/14 at 6:50 am|
I bought a Thermapen a year or so back and love it, but I still get their email sales. Today one came through that looked interesting. It's a new thermometer that is just a little slower, but a whole lot cheaper. 5-6 seconds vs 3. ($24) Sorry for the large picture, it's the only one I could find...
| Food and Drink Board|| Anyone else thinking about the vegetable garden already? - RaginCajunz on 1/1/14 at 10:46 pm|
I just finished ordering all my seeds for the garden. We always start everything from seed, and this year I was actually on top of my game and got everything ordered tonight.
Prescot Fond Blanc Melon - New to me this year. May flop, may be good...always fun to try new stuff)

Anyone know the lowdown on the new Burger Delight? It looks like they just opened up on Hwy 42 near the library as a drive-thru. I saw there was a line backed up onto the highway last night as I drove past. Curious if original owners and product? The long line suggested it was. ...

I may find myself on the Westbank tomorrow. I've had my fair share of Pho, but looking for recommendations.
On the Westbank I've had:
Pho Danh #4 in the Hong Kong market
9 Roses (pretty good, and a very big menu)
Pho Tau Bay (very big let down)
None of them came close to Dong Phuong over...
