| O-T Lounge|| re: Anyone Ever Have to Do A Chargeback On Your Credit Card? - nikki6 on 12/11/14 at 12:23 pm|
The dilemma is that they did ship the first order using USPS Priority Mail and tracking shows it as delivered. I didn't get it. I even went to the post office and they said that they'd look into it. Nothing came of that. I've never had anything stolen out of my mail and I find it hard to believe th...

Ordered some personalized items from a store with an Internet presence as a gift for my godchild's birthday in late November. I placed this order on 11/1. By the week of Thanksgiving I was wondering where it was and checked the tracking. Apparently it had been delivered on Friday 11/21. I never rece...

That elf is creepy. When I have kids, no way we're doing that.
Contrary to the OT, my kids will be OK.

I'd agree with the trashy part if the parents I'm referring to weren't members of good New Orleans families. Some of the outfits probably cost $75-$100 each. Those smocking outfits found in Magazine and Met Rd kid boutiques are not cheap.
| O-T Lounge|| OT's Opinion on Dressing Kids Alike? - nikki6 on 10/27/13 at 2:38 pm|
I've been noticing on FB that a lot of parents are dressing their kids alike. I'm not talking twins either, but kids 3 and 4 years apart in age. Is this becoming a thing? I think maybe it's cute once or twice but I've got several people on FB feed who dress their kids alike for every single occas...

| Money Talk|| How Much Homeowners Insurance Do I Reasonably Need? - nikki6 on 10/22/13 at 8:52 pm|
I bought a house almost a year ago for a little over $148k. It appraised for $155k. I got my homeowners renewal letter the other day which states I have replacement value at $179k. So basically if my house burns down, I get $179k to build a new one. Am I wrong in thinking that I need more than thi...

It's St. Aug and I'm in Dallas. It will start getting cold by mid-late Nov I'm told. By cold I mean 40's probably. Its 55 right now.
I'll aerate and try to find low nitrogen stuff at Lowes tomorrow.

My Lawn has looked awesome all summer. I've been cutting on the highest setting and mulching every time. It's getting chilly now that it's Oct and I've been told its time to "winterize" it. What does this mean and what should I do? What specifically should I buy product wise? I've been using Scot...

Dallas doesn't do Tex Mex all that great either but the State fair isn't about tex mex. Its idiots getting excited by fried butter or fried twinkies. "Have you tried the fried[insert random processed food]?it's amazing!"
Whatever floats their boat I guess. ...
