| Outdoor Board|| Is this a caterpillar sting? - AlxTgr on 9/16/14 at 10:07 am|
Not sure what I hate more, caterpillars or spiders. This may be why. I was trying to reach something in a mess of vines and foliage. Felt an odd sensation. Minutes later, my arm was burning. There was a slight itch, but mostly burn. This is the area 2 days later.
| Outdoor Board|| Mutt - what breeds in this one? - AlxTgr on 9/12/14 at 9:32 am|
She shows up last week laying against front door. Will not leave. Wife and child take her in. The video does not really show just how short the front legs are. Dachshund? Corgi? Vet says some Schnauzer, but I have my doubts.

| Music Board|| Television, Lloyd, Quine, Sweet etc - AlxTgr on 8/4/14 at 9:48 am|
So I spent part of the weekend finally devoting some time to Television. I had to do the same thing a while back with Big Star. Not sure why I ignored them so long considering they are mentioned so often when reading about the bands I like.
Anyway, the thing that finally got me to do so was hea...

I know squat about this, so my questions may not even make sense. Anyway, I bought a Panny TV last year. It can actually find and use my wifi maybe 1 out of ten tries. Tired of trying to make it work. Would it be easier to use if I just wired a product to it? If so, what do I need to look at? ...

New computer installed yesterday. My dictation used to be:dock it and forget it. Now, some kind of dialogue box comes up as if I inserted a disk. I then must open the Olympus deal and click shite to get the dictation to transfer. Went from XP to 7 Pro if that matters. I realize I don't know squat abo...
| Outdoor Board|| Toledo Bend South - The White Perch - AlxTgr on 6/2/14 at 10:11 am|
We usually go to the State park for Memorial Day weekend, but had a wedding, so we went last weekend. I fished mostly around the La. Islands and surrounding coves. A little on the Tx. side. Between the high water and cold winter, the grass is not like it's been the last few years in late May. It's s...

I have not fished craw worms in years. Going to give these a shot with some craws. I like the action and the way they are said to cast.

The Baton Rouge brood(XXII)is expected this year. Our area only has annual ones, so I've never experienced the sights and sounds of a periodical emergence. Here's a map.

Our Academy is not near any major waterway, marsh or swamp. Bayou Robert is maybe a mile or so away, but I grew up on it and never saw one of these. Anyway, this poor guy was laying against the front of the building.

New one on me. I've seen Doug Stange do it in yankee waters, but never thought it would be something I would take part in. Thanks to one of our fine members, I investigated a cove at Indian Creek once I got frustrated with seeing 500 bass that would not bite. When I got to the back of the pocket, I ...
