| Food and Drink Board|| Trader Joe's meal I fixed tonight...... - ruzil on 2/18/14 at 9:07 pm|
I like the idea of a Trader Joe's to compete with the likes of Whole Foods, although not in the same category. I enjoy shopping at TJ and WF, but the expense of WF is rediculous IMHO.
I wish TJ had a real meat department but I'm not going to change that by wishing.
I decided to prepare a meal...

Taking my son to the Saints game tonight and will be staying in the WHD. The kid loves a great breakfast and looking for a nice place.

Heard a radio program today that proposed lowering the BAC of drivers yet again to help keep drunks off the road. Mothers doing work to save lives!
Then it occurred to me that it's only the mothers that are getting credit. It's not like fathers don't want to save lives too.
Being a father,...

There seems to be a few threads a month about dental issues. Usually they end up with people bitching about the high cost of dental care.
Well, here's your opportunity to save a little money and do it yourself:

Currently designing a new home and thinking about an induction cooktop instead of gas for ease of cleaning.
I have cooked extensively on gas and electric in the past. I hate electric tops because of the inability to turn down the heat immediately. I really enjoy cooking on a gas stove, but hate...

In the planning stages for a new house and the wife wants a brick or some type of masonry wall. Probably 6-8 feet in height.
Anyone have any experience recently with building or having a wall like this built? What would this type of wall cost per foot?

I'm setting up for mine tomorrow and it got me thinking.
Brisk business 30 minutes before opening of the garage sale. Early birds tend to be old hags and misers.

I have an 1800 ft2 house that I will be tearing down soon in the Old Goodwood neighborhood. I have secured a contractor that will raze and cart off the structure for me.

This thread got my creative juices flowing. Those first few steps after a long number two session have me looking like Lebron being helped off the court with his epic cramps.
How about a toilet/recliner combo. The leg rests and angle of the chair will take the pressure off the legs and [b]elimina...

Do I have to pull any permits to do this? Since there is only vacant land next to my property, if I build it without the hassle and expense of the permits, could there be any problems in the future?
My family really enjoys playing bocce ball, and with the mild BR weather, I could see us playing ...

In the late '80s when I used to be a drug rep I had the teaching centers in Jackson MS as part of my territory. I used to bring lunches frequently to the residents and would have it catered.
