| Outdoor Board|| Ahh, the joys of serving on an HOA Board re: Giant Genetically engineered Carp - dpd901 on 4/1/14 at 6:55 pm|
So my ever so well intentioned but naïve neighbor, bless her heart, thinks Giant Carp in one of our neighborhood ponds is responsible for a series of baby duck and turtle disappearances of late.
Has nothing to do with the 7lb large mouths, garfish and snakes. Its the carp I tell ya. The carp!...

How exactly did Fredo help Roth and the Rosati Bros? Unless I missed something, they don't really explain it. I know Fredo says they lied to him and he didn't know it was going to be a hit, but what did he do exactly? Give them a blue print of the house so they knew where Michael's bedroom was? ...

2 Couples staying in Atlanta during Masters week on the way to Augusta. One of the guys is a big time foodie and wine enthusiast... If there is something in an area with bars/clubs/live music in walking distance, that would be a plus.

If you call back the number that shows up on the caller i.d. It's a disconnected Verision ...

Any recs? Was thinking of renting a yak and going mess around one of the many lagoons. Or just going get a cheap rod/reel combo and a couple of Top Dog Jr's and going throw by the rocks along side 331. Haven't seen anyone fishing in the surf... Wonder if there's any Pompano there?

What's the most soothing aftershave product? My neck is super sensitive and gets razor burn on the reg.
I have an alum block, and I have used Charles Robert's Hydrolast and the Sandalwood balm from Art of Shaving.
If it has that classic barbershop fragrance, that's a bonus.
