| Outdoor Board|| Someone stole my Mucks today - Martini on 12/8/14 at 9:12 pm|
Let me start by saying I got my drivers license when I turned 15 and on that day I also got my first pickup truck. Granted it was a 1969 Chevy longbed fleet side, 3 on the tree, V -8 that was wrung out but it was mine. One of the first things I did was put a gun rack in the rear window and set my fa...

Not sure if this is ever discussed on here but John McLaughlin is phenomenal. Does anyone watch? He's funny as hell, very smart and he let's his group speak.
He's an interesting guy to, a former speech writer for Nixon, longtime Pat Buchanan friend ( who got him the job) as well as a former Jesui...

For various reasons I have to stay home all day Saturday and I'm tired of cooking so I want to stuff something. I am pulling my grinder and stuffer out and I have three bags of casings. I will make a basic pork, salt and pepper.
I'm open for ideas. I have a bunch of cubed deer but I'll use it for...

Ascension Honda going in on corner of Babin and Airline, wherever Babin is. New car dealership which is significant because it's not an existing dealership relocating. Nice to see.

| Outdoor Board|| Deer quit eating my corn - Martini on 11/16/14 at 8:32 am|
Havent checked my cameras, but the last week they have stopped. Is it because of acorns? Action around? I've heard the neighbor shoot but not much else and no pressure from me. FWIW I'm hunting on 100 acres bordered by a creek with 2 different landowners bordering it so I know the deer move in and o...
| Political Talk|| Let me ask a stupid question about immigration reform - Martini on 11/14/14 at 6:17 am|
If all illegal immigrants are deported who is going to replace them in the workforce?
No house, hotel would get cleaned. No construction would proceed. No agriculture would be harvested among other things.
With whom are they replaced? Lieutenant Caffey? Lieutenant Weinberg?
Seriously. What ...
| Political Talk|| All of you writing off Landrieu and Edwards better get a gut check - Martini on 11/5/14 at 7:00 am|
Ive been voting in this state for 40 years and believe me if anyone thinks either one of these two are going to roll over they are whistling Dixie.
It was a good night for the Republicans but in La. It's not over. Just because the republicans had crowded fields does not equate to added votes. Mo...

| Food and Drink Board|| Do you say grace at meals? - Martini on 10/22/14 at 6:43 am|
Do you in a restaurant bow your head and say grace? With yourself, with family, with a dinner party of friends?
I do with all of the above. Do people stare? Are you the one staring? I read the Alton Brown thread and it reminded me I heard him say he prayed at dinner and people looked at him funn...

Recently bought a piece of property that came with a couple stands and feeders already set up. The stands are pretty beat up and I plan on replacing them at some point. But now they are in a clear lane about 30 yards wide on one side at the tree line. Feeders are right at 100 yards just at the edge ...

We met on the internet so I am hoping that this post finds you. I know that it could quite possibly be the most humiliating first date that you have ever been on, but I am willing to look past that.
I thought we had chemistry sitting at the Lakeview sharing that order of deep fried pickles while ...
| O-T Lounge|| Yellow Cab broken down on Bluebonnet - Martini on 8/13/14 at 3:17 pm|
at Blue Cross an hour ago. Cab being sucked up onto the bed of the wrecker while the hot , sweaty driver looked on. I was sitting at the light, eased my window down and politely asked "would you like me to Über a car for you?" His reply was "you're a dick." I said "yes. Yes I am."
Once on awhile ...
