Look at the ARC of Greater Nola. They take throws that are donated and sort them and sell them back to riders for much less than if you bought new. Plus you're helping out a good organization. But the closer you get to Mardi Gras, they sell out. I think there is a website to get info on how to r...

I have a "that side of the family" that is quite trashy. I'm not around them very much so I wouldn't know for sure, but I would bet a lot of money that the mothers of two of the children on that side smoked if not did much worse while pregnant. One of the children is mentally handicapped and the oth...

Was paying $60 every two weeks to clean floors, tubs, toilets, dust, but no laundry. Was a 1500 sq ft house. Now the wife is a stay at home mom in a new house. I'm paying a lot more now as we basically lose hr 50k salary :banghead:
And I can't fire her for not doing a good job. I get yelled at...

I had to finish whatever vegetable was on my plate. I was a picky eater and hated everything. Lots of time spent in front of cold broccoli. Didn't help with me being a picky eater either. I now do it to myself to try to force myself to eat better. ...

Most limo companies have an older Rolls-Royce. We had one from like the 30's or 40's. Don't get hung up on that stuff too much though because it ends up being a blip on the radar of things you even remember.
The one thing that was awesome was a greyhound from the hotel to the church, then to the...

What size tank do you have that you can fill up for $29???? 25 gallon tank on my Tahoe would mean that gas was $1.16 to fill up for $29!!! I haven't seen it that low yet. And I know a gas guzzler like a Tundra has to have the same size tank as a Tahoe....

[quote]But wasn't it Halliburton's decision based on its recent acquisition of Baker Hughes?[/quote]
Halliburton has an agreement to buy Baker if all things go accordingly, but they do not own any of it yet. I don't know how that works as far as making those decisions, but ultimately that is Ba...

So Baker laid off 7k employees. Not Halliburton. Still two separate companies. ...

I crate trained, but I could go home for lunch. After about 4-6 months, she could hold it for the 7-8 hours I was at work, so it wasn't necessary to go home. She now sleeps at the foot of the bed and can hold it for a long time when we sleep in on the weekends. It's only those first few months th...

My good friend in high school was a JW. I remember pulling into our driveway and my dad seeing them at our door and he threw it in reverse and took off :lol:. Really awkward to see her at school the next day.
In regards to people bickering about what version of the bible is most accurate, wh...

There was some not so great acting (first drunk step-dad comes to mind), but it really flowed well for being filmed over such a long period. The main character definitely got worse as time went on. But it did have a sense a reality to it, like it felt like a normal broken family's story. I liked ...

Never been offered, but have had others I started with move on to other companies getting a pretty nice raise along the way. We had the same qualifications and I know for a fact I had more experience and was more "well thought of" at my current company than some that have left. I just haven't put ...

After going through a wine drinking phase, you probably wouldn't be able to tell I was drinking other than my purple teeth and lips. Now that I'm a dad, I don't drink after work anymore, so I've lost my tolerance. But a year ago, a bottle was nothing.
And you can get a decent (at least drinkable...

Could you imagine if it actually WAS Adam and Steve instead of Adam and Eve????? Whole human race would have never even got started. But at least the gay marriage argument would have been easier. So its kind of a give and take scenario.
But in all seriousness, I grew up in a very religious, ca...

I used to drink a bottle when I'd get home from work about 2 to 3 nights a week. One bottle gets me pretty buzzed, but it's by no means like drinking a fifth of whiskey a day. Could wake up early for work the next day no issues whatsoever. Never felt the need to be drunk EVERY night though. But a...

You must not be familiar with how Halliburton operates :lol:. Their facilities will never be as elaborate, as nice, even as adequate as SLB and BHI. Just enough to get the work done. You should have seen some of the facilities they were operating out of before. But they also aren't as quick to ...

We should be able to tranquilize these people, move them out of traffic (just like a pasture in the middle of nowhere), and don't even press charges. Let them be. Not our responsibility to help someone who cemented themselves into a barrel. ...
