re: Lindsey Scott will score LSU TD's against anyone, LSU owes him an opportunity - Spirit of Dunson
Not reading 13 pages, but did anyone mention that Harvard doesn't give athletic scholarships? No ivy's give scholarships... only need based financial aid which is available to all qualifying students....

re: What kind of bonus is fair? - Spirit of Dunson
If one of my employees improved a process that saved about 500 manhours a year, I'd thank them and potentially give them a good annual review which results in a bigger bonus and better salary bump. I would not give them a percentage of the savings. ...

re: Overseas Employment Opportunity - Spirit of Dunson
Bringing the dogs can be a hassle with customs, but it is doable. We brought our dog, but it was a tiresome process. Germany is a great country to live and work in, but can vary greatly based on the area. If you don't mind me asking - what part of Germany? If you have any specific questions, ...

re: Overseas Employment Opportunity - Spirit of Dunson
It really depends on the company's policies. I still get a company match but my contributions have to be post tax. Financially, I am much better off with an overseas assignment, but we have excellent expat policies. I don't know many folks that have been worse off with a delegation. Typically you g...

re: Europe Sale from MSY - Spirit of Dunson
I think that the only direct flight is to FRA, but still great prices. My family will try out Condor to NOLA this summer... not sure what quality to expect. I would take a step down in quality for the convenience of a direct flight. ...

re: Frankfurt Christmas Market - Spirit of Dunson
Dublin weather would be terrible around Christmas, and you should only go to Provence in the spring or summer. Honestly... I would consider a warmer place that time of year. Consider southern italy, Spain, or Portugal. Otherwise, the Munich/Salzburg trip would be quite manageable. ...

re: Frankfurt Christmas Market - Spirit of Dunson
My parents are both 64 and are visiting me now. We went to hamburg and copenhagen for a week or so. If your mom is not used to the cold or lots of walking, be prepared for lots of complaining. :lol: Seriously, you could take a train from frankfurt to Munich in 3 hours. Spend a few days there, an...

re: Frankfurt Christmas Market - Spirit of Dunson
Frankfurt's is OK, but not special. I'd recommend Strausbourg (French town on German border... but it has been part of France and Germany several times), Munich, and Salzburg. My favorite one is actually in a small town in the German wine valley called Deidesheim. I probably wouldn't fly all the way...

re: It's Time to Create a History Board - Spirit of Dunson
A great poster, redfield, and I had this amazing idea for a board called the "Penalty Box". Essentially, it was a board where only nearly-banned posters could post. It was like purgatory or something - but we all got to watch them melt. It was a great idea originally suggested [link=(http://www.tig...
