re: student loan - islandtiger
My approach for all our kids has been to keep total loans to no more than 40-50 percent of expected starting annual salary. So far, all our kids have gone to LSU and, with TOPS, that goal has been easy to achieve (all have been under 20 percent). Our youngest is going to a private school out-of-s...

re: Concrete stained like wood. yes or no - islandtiger
I'd have to dig up the spreadsheet to get actual numbers, but it was no more than other quality hardwood like cherry. It looks great and seems to be completely immune to scratching (unlike our Brazilian cherry)....

[quote]The losses these bomber crews took were just amazing.

re: No Surprise: LSU kicks Acacia off campus - islandtiger
[quote]a university-recognized organization, and the activity takes place on university property. The university gets to set the ground rules. If they can't abide by them, they can move off campus and become an unsanctioned chapter. No one does this because it's nearly impossible to have a viable ch...

I am in my late 50s and am fortunate to still have all of those attributes, except that knees and back are starting to show th...

re: Record Snowstorms Proves Global Warming - islandtiger
I rarely throw in my two-cents-worth because the OT is no place for science debates, but couldn't let this pass. Regardless of the causal agent, changes in climate, which includes increased mean temperature, altered precipitation (amounts, seasonality, regional distribution, form), sea level rise,...
