My son and I are preparing to tackle the Appalachian Trail in sections starting this summer. I would like to go somewhere in Louisiana for a night to break us in a little. Where would the OB recommend we go in north LA to get a good day long hike in and spend the night at a campsite? Also, if ...

Mistake. Keanu was horrible, the writing was bad and the ending (last 30 minutes) was beyond retarded. I was especially embarrassed because when it was starting I was telling my wife and 15 year old son how awesome it was. God it was so bad. Like Con Air bad....View Topic - Replies (16)

I had avoided this series because the animation looked a little juvenile. But this weekend my son and I caught the marathon and I have to admit I was very into it. The stories are pretty good. It's just as good as The Clone Wars so far. I really enjoyed it. I wish Vader was in it. I'm sure other...View Topic - Replies (7)

Looking to get my son a new desktop. He's using a 2006 era with 2 GB of Ram and Windows XP. He's not a huge gamer but he wants to be able to play Steam type stuff. It's just time. His monitor is his TV. About a 5 year old JVC LCD. Is it unreasonable to build a new one with at least 8 GB of R...

So listening to the radio yesterday I hear a guy discussing some reasons to be worried. Since the Sean Payton era began, the Saints are 12-4 in game decided by 3 points or less IN PLAYOFF YEARS. In non playoff years, the Saints are 1-7 in games decided by three or less. 2006 2-1 2007 0-1 200...View Topic - Replies (2)

Tonight the 1965 LSU team was honored at LSU. They defeated the previously unbeaten Arkansas Razorbacks 14-7 in the 1966 Cotton Bowl. It was and still is one of the biggest wins in LSU history. This is a photo taken during the 50th anniv. dinner. My dad is in the middle standing. [IMG]http://i...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Three specific things I think are hurting this team. - alajones on 9/29/14 at 9:32 am|
1. Not signing Carl Nicks. Tough to say if our o line would be better. But "I think" it would be. 2. High DB draft picks are not working out. Not that specific I guess, but maybe the most damning problem with our defense. 3. Galette and Jordan really don't seem to be having a huge impact and t...View Topic - Replies (9)

I have. Like actually grieved for a couple of days after the character's death. A couple of examples are: 1. Dumbledore. I remember reading the book and totally being stunned. I kept waiting for him to come back to life or something. And it never happened. I literally mourned his passing for a co...View Topic - Replies (32)
