re: Charity/Aid Thread: Where you can volunteer, donate, etc. - JL
If anybody in Houston wants to send anything to Baton Rouge I'm loading up a trailer and leaving Thursday. I'll be dropping off all donated items at one of the shelters then heading with a crew to start the cleanup effort. We have plenty of water already donated but will take other items. You can...

re: Where are you going to retire? Is Louisiana on your list? - JL
I would love to have a condo in the french quarter and a sailboat in the Caribbean when I retire. I'm saving my arse off to be able to do whatever I want. I'm sure those plans will change as I get older. I just want to maybe have one place I own and just travel around all the time. ...

re: Cheap Flights to South Africa - JL
We went in May. It was the beginning of winter so the weather was very nice, wore a light jacket in the morning and jeans at night but shorts worked fine the rest of the time. I've been a lot of incredible places around the world, I would put South Africa in my top 2 or 3 ...

re: Thailand and Cambodia - JL
Siem Reap was awesome, we stayed at The Privilege Floor, it was pricey but included a full time driver and guide for the entire time we were there, this included whatever tours of the ruins you wanted to do. Go check out the floating village on the lake, it's pretty interesting to see how they live....

re: Something you argue with your wife about that's really not that big of a deal? - JL
She doesn't rinse off dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Also puts dishes covered with crap in the side of the sink without the disposal. Drives me crazy. She now does it on purpose because she knows it annoys me. ...

re: Steak 48 - Houston - JL
Went to hopdoddy, food was good but the setup is weird. You stand in line to order. Then while in line somebody finds out how many in your party and tells you a table number to sit at. Then another person comes and waits on your table after you order at the counter and you pay this person. Seeme...

re: Going to Galveston for 5 days around 4th of July..... - JL
The Strand, Moody Gardens, that's about it. There are a few good places to eat but nothing overly impressive, the most famous restaurant on the island is gaidos and I don't really like it that much. It's gonna be really hot and everything around the main town will probably be crowded. If you are...

re: What is the simplest thing you have ever had to explain to a competent adult? - JL
I had to explain how time worked to an adult. We were told to be somewhere at quarter past 10. They thought this meant 10:25 because a quarter is $0.25. Took forever to convince them a quarter of an hour is 15 min and we had to be there at 10:15....
