My guess would be that Europe priced the Rednecks out. No big truck, gas is much more expensive, racing is F1 and rally, I don't think they grow tobacco for chewing, stricter gun control over there, and not many opportunities to own/have your granpappy deed you 10+ acres of land.

I think that people forget the ER pilot. It was probably the best pilot shot before the rise of cable dominance, and still holds up to this day. It actually shot more like a movie than a TV show. In my opinion, the ER pilot should be the gold st...

Simplest answer- ban guns. No personal ownership, no police ownership, no military ownership. Domestic and world level. No one gets to own a gun, period.

Ok, just came back from Costco in NOLA. Beer was what I expected- $20 for a 24 pack of BMC, Sam Adams Oktoberfest was $25 for a 24 pack. Didn't look too closely at the wine, but champagne/sparklers were about the same as anywhere else, save the Kirkland Signature sparkling and wines.
From what ...

Specific question for anyone in NOLA that has been. Is it like most other Costco's and offer decent prices on spirits, beer, and wine?

Highland Coffee has a smokey tea "Lapsang souchong" that will put some hair on your chest. I like it a lot, but you must be ok with drinking a campfire.

It is a well written show and can be emotionally powerful. However, it was depressing as frick at times, and some of the characters actions made me want to punch things. The members of the Fisher and Chenowith families have lots of issues.

Drove from Stowe, VT to Colorado Springs (with a stop in Chicago) in less than 48 hours. I think it was 2,200 miles or so. I had company, but my arse was in the driver's seat the whole time. I drove mostly through the night and avoided many major city traffic areas because of this.
