Cost of Re-Doing a Pool? - Bayou Tiger
There is a house that we might consider buying, but I don't like the backyard pool setup at all. How big of a deal is it to take out a pool and hot tub and just start from scratch, versus installing a pool in an empty yard? Extra $5000, $10000?...

Ideas for Quick Snow Getaway - Bayou Tiger
I was thinking it would be fun to take the kids (5 and 7) for a long weekend to go see some snow. We are not looking to do any skiing, so it would be a quick trip to somewhere "wintery" with snow to play in and maybe something else interesting to do. Any ideas for a quick trip to somewhere nea...

Smear the Queer - Bayou Tiger
Do kids still play this game? For some reason today it popped into my head for the first time in many years. One kid runs around a field or yard with the football while the rest of the group chases him. After he gets tackled, he throws the football up in the air and somebody else catches it and r...

Does the country need more toll roads? - Bayou Tiger
Lately the Hardy Toll Road in Houston has become more congested, even after a very slight increase in the toll amount. So I end up paying a toll to sit in traffic that is not as bad as the free interstate. Counterintuitively, I find myself wishing they would just double the toll and clear out a l...

Fleming's Steakhouse Wine App on iPads - Bayou Tiger
For those of you who don't go to Fleming's Steakhouse, they bring an iPad to your table with an app that guides you though their wine selection with prices, descriptions, and sorting.

Too Big to Fail - Angelic Character Portrayals - Bayou Tiger
After reading through the first few chapters of Too Big to Fail, one thing that sticks out to me is how Sorkin portrays all of the key players in such a positive light - Fuld, Dimon, Paulson, Geithner, etc. It makes me suspicious of the slant of this book in general. What are the opinions of som...
