re: The Civil War: Why did your ancestors serve? - PJinAtl
[quote]The reason soldiers suffered from lack of food was due in part to the Confederates inability to get the food to the troops. The food was there but the distribution system was inept and awful. Food rotted in areas while troops went hungry at Petersburg.[/quote]Also, the rank and file soldiers ...

re: Best/favorite eating spots in/on the way to Knoxville? - PJinAtl
Calhoun's on the River for BBQ (not far from Neyland). There are a couple of other locations, but the one on the river is the only one with views. Ye Olde Steakhouse (southeast of town on Chapman Highway on the way to Sevierville). Flame grilled grass fed steaks and lots of it. Bayou Bay Seafo...

re: Spinoff thread:How far back can you trace your families' history? - PJinAtl
Dad's side of the family can be traced back to the 1700s in England and Scotland. His parents came to the US after WW 1. Mom's side of the family we can trace easily back to mid 1700s Virginia, and then a couple of lines to early 1700s Germany and Wales. Mom's side of the family has at least t...

re: AT&T Uverse question: location of gateway and primary tv boxes - PJinAtl
I am looking at the highest speed plan (45 MB I think) because we sometimes use Lync for audio/video conference for work. Current set-up (and hoping it stays this way) is personal tower PC, work laptop and HP LasetJet printer each connected to the Netgear by Ethernet. iPad, LG tablet, Kindle and ...

AT&T Uverse question: location of gateway and primary tv boxes - PJinAtl
The wife and I are moving into an apartment for a year while we are having our house built. The only option for tv and internet at this complex is Uverse. We have never had it, but I am excited to try it out to see if it is better than Comcast. The apartment will be set up so that one of the bedr...

re: Has an OOC game ever cost you a shot at NC/Or been the reason you went? - PJinAtl
Another OOC game that hurt Auburn in 2004 was the one against the Citadel. Auburn was scheduled to play Bowling Green, but BG backed out at the last minute in order to schedule Oklahoma (I want to say BG's athletic director was an OU alum and OU actually paid the buyout). So Auburn is stuck tryin...

[quote]Isn't Sept. 19 too early for CBS? I thought it had to be past the 21st or something.[/quote]CBS no longer has the US Open Tennis coverage, so they are able to broadcast college games earlier in the year now.

re: Fun drives in America - PJinAtl
Of the ones I have done: Miami-Key West. When you come across Card Sound and the sawgrass gives way to the blue water is just beautiful. Denver to Utah via I-70. Cross the Divide, the drive through Glenwood Canyon and then crossing the San Rafael Swell in Utah is otherworldly. Nags Head to ...

re: 2 week solo road trip - PJinAtl
Given the 2 places that are musts, I would suggest 20 out of Tuscaloosa and straight to Dallas. From Dallas go north to I-40 and head west with Williams, Arizona as your major destination. You can stop in Albuquerque if you want, and I would suggest a slight detour off 40 to go through Petrified F...

re: Pitch Perfect 2 - 70% on RT - PJinAtl
We went to see it Saturday afternoon. I thought it was ok, but at times it seemed forced, or more like they wrote funny parts and then had to figure a way to string them together. It didn't seem to flow quite like the first one did. I also thought the music choices could have been better....
