re: Out of state fans - kjacksonp
Grew up in BR area (Central) but have lived in Mobile and endured Bama fans for several decades. Most of my friends are either Bama or Auburn grads/fans, so best years were when we were beating both, along with UF. Not often, but nice when it happens. My Bama friends are generally alumni, so no...

re: Brain-eating amoeba detected in La. water system - kjacksonp
Saw a case when I was a pediatric resident. Young kid had been diving in a pond. Force of the water into his nose allowed it to penetrate via the cribiform plate. Bad way to die. Was warned by allergist not to use tap water to do nasal saline washes because it can always be in regular tap water....

re: Retirement Review -- Am I on Track? - kjacksonp
Don't invest your savings account no matter how tempting it is. Keep some funds for emergencies and remove the pressure of "what happens when the market corrects" and I suddenly need the emergency funds that I invested (that have tanked for the time being). Experience talking....

Just returned from Rwanda. In 2013 practically no one took a credit card. This time even the local duca (outdoor free standing shops) frequently took them in Kigali, plus restaurants, other merchants. Definitely spreading in Africa....

re: Just curious, how much do y'all claim for Charitable Donations? - kjacksonp
Average about 15% for last few years. That may sound high, but kids are all out of the house, we don't need what we make, and the charities we give to are vetted for efficient use of the funds for causes we believe are important: Church anti-trafficking charities underprivileged youth/families...

re: Non-compete agreements - kjacksonp
In some states (Alabama) they cannot be enforced against people who are considered "professionals"--JD, MD, ?CPA (not sure), perhaps other areas this would cover. Have seen contracts where it is written in even though not enforceable assuming that the employee won't know that and will comply even...

Give them as little information as possible about your circumstances until you have an agreed upon price; and have as much information as possible about their cost vs. what they are asking for the vehicle prior to going to look (there are sites to help with that.)

re: Outsiders Take On Coach O - kjacksonp
If LSU keeps it close into the 4th qtr against Bama, beats Arky soundly and beats UF, Coach O is named head coach before TAM game. A word from someone who knows a lot more about the workings than I do. If not, then all of the speculation about other coaches stays in play....
