[quote]It would also be nice if burbank could extend along bayou manchac and tie into I-10 between Dutchtown and Highland road. Allowing more commercial and residential expansion in between. [/quote] It would be nice if that tied into Bluff Road and a future interchange. but I bet there would b...

re: I-10 widening in Baton Rouge - TigerRob20
I guess this is specific to the interstate, but they really should have found a way to incorporate Constitution on the south side of I-10 at College into a one way service road for the interstate with a flyover to connect into a new north side one way service road that becomes access to the Mariott,...

re: Buying my first house, insurance questions, need help - TigerRob20
[quote]I have never escrowed my homeowners insurance. Always pay myself, in full, with credit card (to get points). I have seen and heard of way too many cases of mortgages not paying the insurance. For example, my mother. She escrowed, paid mortgage each month, Katrina happens, surprise she fou...

re: Best way to watch tv/espn outside? - TigerRob20
The best way would be the Directv HD dish, because you wont run into bandwidth problems. (this is only if you are handy with being able to set up the dish outside, or have the auto-align dish). Second best would be to connect to a fast local wifi network and run your smart tv/apple tv/etc. T...

re: Flexible spending account for dependent care - TigerRob20
[quote]That I would just deduct that same max at tax time... [/quote] I was under the impression that if you have access to this from your employer and a child in daycare (with costs over $5k a year), it is a no brainer to have this set up. Luckily our company is rather easy to work with, we even...

re: Buying my first house, insurance questions, need help - TigerRob20
[quote]Also, don't escrow. Pay in full. Most take credit cards [/quote] Will a bank allow that? You may be able to pay your auto insurance if bundled, but I think most banks force you to escrow (because they want to ensure it is insured). I could be wrong..... +1 on MetLife, my insurance...

re: BusinessReport: Baton Rouge needs dramatic change to keep pace with global landscape - TigerRob20
[quote]Honestly, Lafayette is probably best equipped to be the city in Louisiana that begins to attract "young people". The culture is there, there's a lack of culcha, room to grow is there. The city just needs to bring some diversity into the economy and the oil field obviously needs to pick back u...

re: BusinessReport: Baton Rouge needs dramatic change to keep pace with global landscape - TigerRob20
[quote]They didn't take into account increased car volumes due to Claycut being closed. They factored in taking the CATS busses off the street which has already been taken aback. It's a terrible terrible idea. It just means that everyone will be stuck behing empty CATS busses idling at empty bus sto...

[quote]One thing that does suck is that we have had the capability for a while now to install up to 5 wireless boxes in addition to the wired dvr. Of course at&t is gonna at&t, and we have not seen the 7105 set top box that we need for this configuration in over a year. In order to do 5 you must hav...

re: few pics from the Asheville, NC & Blue Ridge, GA trip - TigerRob20
Really enjoyed looking through your reviews and pictures. There are definitely some cool things I'd love to try the next time we are up near Asheville. Kudos for doing all of that with an 11 month old too. You must have a kid that loves to ride in the car. :lol:...

re: Current UVerse Promotions - TigerRob20
If you can get AT&T fiber, it's a no brainer. I will be doing so once it is available in my neighborhood. Also, for those that were following this, the local BTR techs have the discretion to provide wireless boxes without that extra cost. So if your order online or over the phone, just say you w...
