| 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...

There is a new store on Jackson Street close to Suburban Gardens. Vac Shack building I think. I know nothing about it. Team Glock banner on the wall. That is all. ...
| Tech Board|| Wifi to my smart TV - what product? - AlxTgr on 7/9/14 at 9:24 am|
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? ...

| Tech Board|| Olympus dictation issue - auto run? - AlxTgr on 6/12/14 at 2:11 pm|
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.

| Outdoor Board|| Periodical Cicadas 2014 - AlxTgr on 5/27/14 at 7:50 pm|
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.
| Outdoor Board|| Birders - think this is migration? - AlxTgr on 5/12/14 at 3:21 pm|
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.

First encountered it at Cane River. Went years before seeing it anywhere else. Now I find it in TB, Indian Creek, Spring Bayou and Saline. What is it and how/why is it spreading? ...
| Outdoor Board|| Sight fished for......The White Perch - AlxTgr on 3/24/14 at 8:59 am|
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 ...
| Outdoor Board|| Black Perch - caught some lit-up males - AlxTgr on 3/12/14 at 9:33 am|
Fished for hours at Spring Bayou yesterday without a bite. Was about to leave and decided to try one more set of trees. Maybe 5 trees had fish, but if I gave them a break, I could keep getting bites. Had some LOS and equipment issues causing me to miss more than usual. Kept a dozen. Only two had egg...

I have almost no salmon experience other than grilling frozen filets. This is not even refrigerated :speechless:
Anyway, help with ways to use this.
If this must be moved, so be it, but I'd like the OB to...
