re: Need help with a good landscaping company... - Purplehaze
I had the same problem in Houston 20 years ago. The solution was 3 drains in the backyard that tied into underground (about 1 foot down) that ran along the side of the lot to the street in front. the drainpipe was run under the sidewalk and through the curb. Still works well after 20 years. I ...

re: What is your opinion of the late Huey P. Long? - Purplehaze
You have to understand the politics of that era. The Old Regulars and certain planters had all of the power and that meant they got all of riches. Huey wanted the power and figured that his best way to get it was through the common man. Once in power, Huey saw to it that many good things such as ...

How would you go about scanning old Gumbo yearbooks? - Purplehaze
I have some of my father's LSU Gumbo yearbooks from 1936-1940. I need some advice on how I could scan them without damaging the binding. If left to my own device, I could go to a Kinko's and find a large copier and just lay them flat and do one page at a time. Anybody have a better idea? ...

They belonged to my father. I would like to scan them and then post them here since football season is over. My question is how or where would you go to do that? They are in good shape but I would have to be careful with the bindings. thanks for any ideas....

re: Tiger Stadium Dorms - Purplehaze
My dad lived in West Stadium in 1937 or 1938 to 1940. No fans as they were too expensive. 4-5 in a room. Coming from rural Vermillion Parish, he had never seen showers before. It was indeed set up for ROTC. Everybody was broke and those in ROTC had mess hall rights for somewhere around $20...

re: What's the average age on an OT poster? A lot of old farts around these parts. - Purplehaze
66 and I am an avid reader of the OT. My generation did our best to improve the breeding of college students but we apparently failed and now those young enough to be our grand children are still doing the same dumb shite we did in the late 60's. Long live the Pastime Lounge....

re: Federal Budget Deficit Widens, Driven by Baby Boomers - Purplehaze
We baby boomers had to endure something that I would not wish on any generation - military draft and being sent to a foreign war where we did not try to win it. We are also the ones who popularized higher college degrees as a means of keeping a student deferment to avoid the draft. Intellectuall...
