Good Lord, is John Paul still there? He was our music teacher 3,479 years ago when I was at St. Andrews school. Still have memories of him throwing erasers at us to get our attention, and calling us barbarians (he was quite right, ya know).
He sho' could play the keyboards, though, and I'll alway...

Wished that Herington and Becker could have wailed a bit more, but from all the roadies on stage beating on equipment during the first song I'm guessing there may have been some technical problem.

Kinda knew that the LSU lakes were WPA-era, but until now I never put 2 + 2 together to realize that meant LSU's move to the Highlands Road plantation (name?) pre-dates the lakes.
Pretty sure I can see the open field that is now my house. Wow.

While it's on one of the Red Mountain towers, it's not the most high-powered signal, so if you get up toward Trussville or down past Pelham it can get noisy. Understand also that BMR is basically a grown-up college station, so they can get "talky" some times. But they do love music and all things BH...

Buy an extra box of the remote buttons. Then, after the cheap / Chinese-made button fails after six months of being out in the elements, you can just put in another button. Better than trying to find a matching button post-failure.
Ask me how I know. On second thought, please don't. :banghead:...

Pastime is a bar that serves food. Offer to buy the OP a beer, suggest a few other places that might better fit the OP's expectations, share a story about the old times in BR, and move on.
