I'm In about to turn 30 and had a few tonight. Thinking about Katrina and how I was a pledge at the time. With LSU football about to start, thinking about college life. I'd kill to go back 10 years. I love my wife and kid, but I never felt like I was "that old" until recently. I hope its not a mid ...View Topic - Replies (12)

I was wondering last night, as I realized we needed groceries, which store we should go to. When I'm in the mood, I'll go to the nicer store even though it's more expensive. I'm not fooling myself into thinking the products are better. Kind of like Whole Foods. I like to shop there every once and ...View Topic - Replies (20)

Last time they requested we all day what we do, year experience, and an "interesting fact" about ourselves. Most people would say, I like to hunt, or...View Topic - Replies (51)

What species and where you going? Backcountry? Flats? Open water? Wife's friends mentioned all going on a trip. I had no interest until the Keys were an option. If we do it, it would be next summer. If I'm going, I'm taking at least two days to make a fishing trip. I want to make the most of it....

I noticed the other day that several people walk up to the squat rack and remove the "spotter" bars even though they were well below how far down they would ever squat (I could understand if someone had them set way up high). I've also noticed many will do their squats outside of the rack. What's ...View Topic - Replies (12)

Does anyone get their shirts tailored. I get my slacks, suits, etc done, but usually never mess with the shirt. I buy "fitted" or "tailored" dress and sport shirts and don't mind the fit on those. But I've got several other shirts that are nice, but I never wear because they are baggy. How much does...View Topic - Replies (5)

Looking for ideas for a vacation that would be possible to take my 1 year old son with us. Would be a November-December timeline. Already doing the beach thing with family during the summer. Looking for an interesting city to visit that wouldn't be to harsh of a winter to tote the kid around, but...View Topic - Replies (18)

Anyone have any experience with a power surge or something similar damaging appliances? My gas stove works fine, but it appears the oven doesn't light. Also, the water heater seems like it's extremely hot. I think a surge may have fried the thermostats on both and is causing some issues. I lost ...View Topic - Replies (5)

Guy I'm playing for the championship is messaging on the league board about who he just picked up and blah blah blah.

Making a move soon and I don't think we are going to get cable at the new place possibly. We never watch live TV. Always just watch DVR'd stuff. With Hulu and Netflix, will I basically just be missing out on sporting events, or is there a lot of television programming that doesn't make it on Hulu....

My receiving core isn't so hot right now either (a lot of questionables), so it's not like I...View Topic - Replies (3)
