We all must be on the same street. Outage map shows 480 customers still out in all of Baton Rouge, and 384 are in my neighborhood. Which has all underground utilities. Which, however, is serviced by ancient lines running under the tree canopy on Highland Road. Meanwhile, I pay these frickers all the...

Had a prediction on their recording for the power being out for 2 hours almost before it went out. Rolling blackouts? Last week the AP took it in the arse, so now it's EBR's turn? Screw those SOB's. My power has blipped at least once a day nearly every day since it got hot. Remind me why I'm payin...

[quote]Serious answer-LSU has priced the hardcore coonass/redneck fans out of going to games. Its a wine and cheese crowd now. Not boudin and whiskey.These are the fans who gave Death Valley its rep and would stay the whole game and tailgate all night.
There are still some, but not as many as th...

There was a big article this Spring in the Houston Chronicle about that distillery in part of their series on Texas produced bourbons. When I priced it at Specs, I discovered they were quite proud of it, so I opted to try the 1835 for my first foray into Texas products. It's not bad, though for th...
