| Money Talk|| re: What should I do with my property? - Opus on 2/23/15 at 7:09 am|
It sounds like you want to keep it. Would you use it, sparingly, if there was a small house on it?
Do they still sell Katrina cottages on the cheap? Maybe get one situated on the land and go visit every now and again for a relaxing weekend.
I don't know a lot about the area, so I'm not s...

2.5 year old. He didn't enjoy any of it until the fencing scene, especially the heart shaped boxers part :lol: After that he stopped protesting and watched a little bit.
But I only put the movie on because I wanted to watch it. ...

I do agree with you. Words have meanings. If you use the word incorrectly you deserve to be made fun of, at the very least. ...

I'm all ears. [/quote]
Doesn't page 19 of your link show a third flood (magical ability pending) with offices?

Jesus frick people here are primed and ready to go with whatever narrative is spoon fed to them.
Anyway, I was under the impression he had a pretty good preseason? Either way, I would imagine some of the better teams in the NFL would take him in a heartbeat if he could help them win a game. ...

If this is a new car dealership then this is nothing new for them. When you signed your forms you had to sign a Louisiana Vehicle Application Form. Th...
| More Sports Board|| re: What's up with the Pels-Rockets rivalry on this board? - Opus on 11/25/14 at 10:09 pm|
Its fun to mess with the Rockets fans on Pelicans Talk because they can't help but interject themselves into the forum dedicated to a team that is not theirs. But in general there is no true Pelican/Rocket rivalry because the Rockets have never done anything of consequence to the Pelicans, and vice...

I do miss Hugo. He was awesome. But in this case we had to throw the baby out with the bathwater so that we could come out ahead with a much more fitting rebrand. I think everything worked out perfect for both franchises. ...

[quote]Whats your preference among those or how do you see it ending?[/quote]
My preference would be finding a cure to stop the living from turning into walkers automatically upon death. But nothing that de-animates a walker (or worse yet turns them human).
How do I see it ending? After being...

| Money Talk|| re: Why is talking about salary a taboo? - Opus on 10/12/14 at 9:24 am|
Two reasons. 1) People are not mature enough to discuss salary without negative feelings creeping in and straining the relationship. 2) Employers will not allow giving up leverage in salary/raise negotiations.
If you can talk about it like a grown up and keep what you know from your employer ...

First time I went I was underwhelmed. But I wanted to like it so I went back a few weeks later. Still underwhelming. Too many good places to eat to give a third chance at being bored with a meal. ...

What does a study like this do to/for the opposition to drilling in St. Tammany? Is it a comparable situation to the fears of those residents or is it an apple/oranges type situation?
I don't know enough about fracking to have an informed opinion and the only concern I know the St. Tammany res...
