re: Closeout/cheap audio? Now outdoor speakers - TigerTaco
I have [link=(http://www.ticcorp.com/omni-speakers/)]TIC outdoor speakers[/link] and have no complaints. Sound as good or better than a neighbor's similarly designed Bose speakers that are twice the price. I have them hooked up to a Yamaha integrated amp that is in the house. I had them hooked up...

re: Last minute trip to Chicago to watch the Cubs? - TigerTaco
I booked a room at the Hilton Garden Inn in the downtown/miracle mile area for the Friday night before the LSU Wisc game. Will go to the Friday afternoon Cubs game. Looks as though there is a subway/train entrance right out the door of the hotel that runs to Wrigley. Plan to take that to game. Th...

re: Saving for European Trip - TigerTaco
If you are planning to take the Eurail, it will take you at least 6 to 7 days to cover the Madrid to Paris leg as you should stop in Barcelona as you will pass through the city. Did that stretch in July. You won't save a lot of time flying over taking the train as it was about 3.5 hours from Madri...

re: International Travel - Phone Question - TigerTaco
Used AT&T passport plan last summer in France and Spain. We turned off incoming phone calls and used wifi to check email while in hotel room. Every hotel had free wifi. We only used the unlimited text and never ran out of data on the basic plan. The unlimited plan includes unlimited photos sent via ...

re: Estes Park, CO area - TigerTaco
[quote]Pikes peak cog railway[/quote] My wife and I took the train up and mountain biked down. It was organized by a local bike rental place. I'd rather do that than go back down via train because it is slow. We did it about five years ago in late September early October. It was in the 70s at ba...

re: Things to do in Boston - TigerTaco
Not going to say it was the greatest, but I took my kids to the aquarium and on the affiliated whale watching tour. They enjoyed it and we saw at least a dozen whales. Most were alongside the boat. We also went on a walking freedom trail photo tour. ...

re: Planning a trip to Europe(Barcelona and Amsterdam) - TigerTaco
Went to Barcelona last July and stayed one or two nights before heading to Paris by train. I don't think you need more than 2 to 3 days in Barcelona. I definitely recommend Paris. We stayed two nights and that wasn't long enough to hit the major sites. We stayed in a hotel two blocks away from the E...

[quote]I must see the Milky Way before I die.[/quote] I took this one in August. It was a clear night, but the moon was rising behind the mountains at the bottom of the photo. I can't imagine what it would have looked like without moonlight. It was clearly visible with the naked eye. [img]...

I've been to the Calanques in southern France. The water is a lot like the Greek pic. [img]http://www.photos-marseille.fr/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2010/11/CouveCalanques30x43BD.jpg[/img]...

re: Planting/Growing Blueberries - TigerTaco
I have two in pots on our patio that are around five years old. They produced a decent amount of berries, but birds ate most of them. This is the first year I actually fertilized them and the bushes doubled in size. I've never bothered to cover them in the winter, so they appear to be hardy and need...
