| Money Talk|| Condo/Home Inspector Question - Baton Rouge - Freebird11 on 2/15/15 at 11:28 am|
My SO and I are looking into buying a condo near LSU from a family member who is giving us a price well under the appraisal value.
The only issue with the otherwise nice condo is that there is a crack in one of the walls near a door frame that has to be adjusted frequently. This is presumably a f...
| O-T Lounge|| Avoid I10 basin bridge westbound - Freebird11 on 10/5/14 at 6:00 pm|
Your friendly notification that there are two wrecks backing up the interstate. The first at mile marker 123 blocking both lanes and then one at mile 127 in the right lane. Save yourselves while you can and take 190. No end in sight to the traffic....

will be going up there this summer for vacation and already have plans to spend some time in the Whistler and Victoria/Vancouver areas.

Anyone plan on going? I've heard of the place just within the last year or so but have never been. I know a good bit of Adams stuff and like his style so I think I'll head over tomorrow. :cheers:...

Have a friend passing through on their way to TX and wanted to take to lunch. She wants to eat some "Louisiana food" so I'm trying to pick the best place to go for lunch... not super fancy or expensive and near the south BR/prairieville area. Suggestions?...
| Money Talk|| Boardwalk Pipeline Partners - Freebird11 on 12/11/13 at 9:44 pm|
Bought some BWP earlier this year thinking that the Bluegrass pipeline and infrastructure in SW LA might be a big thing but it's done nothing but tank. I've made some healthy gains from Cheniere energy but I'm just waiting to see if I should cut my losses in boardwalk or hold it and wait it out.
| Money Talk|| Charles Schwab Advisor in Baton Rouge? - Freebird11 on 10/1/13 at 10:10 pm|
Does anyone have recommendations for a Schwab advisor in the Baton Rouge area? I'm relatively new to the personal investment game although I've had a Schwab investment acct for a while just didn't actively manage it until recently.

I have a family member looking to purchase a 2-3 year old used truck from dealership in BR. Everything looks good and the truck is Certified used but they want to have it checked out by a third party just in case.

| Outdoor Board|| Truck bed bike rack- recommendations? - Freebird11 on 7/20/13 at 6:52 am|
I have a small truck (Tacoma) and I am looking for a bed-mounted bike rack for a single road bike.
I'm not a hardcore cross-country cyclist but I have an expensive enough road bike that I'd like to be able to transport safely without sliding around and getting scratched up in the bed. I looked i...

| Money Talk|| Locking in Mortgage rates: question for a young adult/novice - Freebird11 on 10/9/12 at 5:03 pm|
With the constant reminder that mortgage rates are at an all time low and now is a good time to buy a home, this topic has been on my mind for a future purchase (hopefully within the next 2-3 years).
For example's sake, if you buy a 200,000 dollar home and put 50,000 down on a 30 year mortgage, c...
| Music Board|| Cody Canada & The Departed show - Freebird11 on 9/27/12 at 12:19 pm|
Anyone seen them play? I'm a pretty big fan of Ragweed's music and saw that CC & the Departed are coming to BR. I don't know much of the new band's stuff but may want to check it out.
Do they play any old CCR songs or is it just their original stuff? I'm sure I'll go either way to hear some of t...

Just saw this pop up on fb from Aaron's page and hadnt heard anything advertised elsewhere so thought I'd pass the word along.
