The turning vehicle would have lawful possession of the lane at that time.

I didn't know that and I grew up here, 37 now. That must've been long ago because I don't remember the Oxbow being anything else and the earliest memory of R&K was at the old Airline location. Learn something new every day. ...

Growing up in New Roads, we had a place called The Ox Bow on False River. I remember it being good when I was a kid. It eventually moved to St. Francisville, but wasn't the same. Also, the original Ralph and Kakoo's when it was in N. BR on Airline and the Olindes owned it. I remember all of us g...

Well back to square one. It's a workout video my wife really wants so I was going to be nice and have it put on dvd as we don't have a vcr. It's copyrighted though, so they won't copy it at Walmart or Sam's. Oh well, I tried. ...

Thanks! I just checked it out online and it looks like Sam's Club does it for $18 and Walmarks for $20. Perfect, just what I needed! Thanks again, I would've never thought of them. ...

I have heard rumored that Lowe's is considering building at Juban. I know the location on Millerville has never done what they expected it to do. That location was supposed to be by Bass Pro where Sam's is, which would have done better, but Lowe's either got tired of waiting or never thought the Ba...

Liberty Mutual. Had a house fire last year. They paid out around $240k in structure and personal property and my renewal went up $21/month. Also had the lowest named storm deductible when I was shopping. Still waiting to see if they drop me eventually, but as of now they've been great. Adjuster...

Well in that case, you need to find out the size and material of the line under the house and go to Lowe's and get a "T" to put on that line. Then come up through the floor with a piece of 1/2" pipe with a shutoff valve on the end with a 1/4...
| O-T Lounge|| re: Connecting an ice maker - jasonb01 on 2/23/14 at 1:54 pm|
If the fridge is on the same wall as the sink, drill through the sides of the cabinets and run a line to the cold water shut off for the sink. You'll have to change the shut off valve to one that has both the 3/8" inlet for the faucet and a 1/4" inlet for the ice maker. If not you'll need to stub ...

I had the 2 37 year old Rheem gas water heaters, which still worked fine, removed last year and replaced with one 12gpm gas tankless. I absolutely love the tankless, but if I were to go back to a tank type, I guess it would be Rheem. I think anything that isn't from THD or Lowe's would be fine....

They don't sell Manny's, as someone else stated.
On a side note, I was in Metairie last week so I picked up one at Randazzo's and 1 at Haydel's. I preferred the Haydel's. It was more traditional with the colored sugar on top. The Randazzo's was still very good, but they put a white icing with...

Thanks for the replies. I'm going to go to Haydel's. It sounds like I can't go wrong with either, but at least at Haydel's I can pick up some other goodies for the ride home. :cheers:...

Ok, I get the hint. lol I did a search and it looks like I may not be the first person registered to TD to wonder which king cake to buy in New Orleans. And it also looks like a 50/50 split on Haydel's/Randazzo's.
One last question then. Is the Manny Randazzo cake in Metairie really different...
