re: Are the benefits of Amazon Prime (besides shipping) worth it? - jordan21210 on 7/28/16 at 8:28 pm
HBO streaming is worth it if you watch or want to watch those shows. I'm watching The Wire right now, it would cost me at least $80 to buy the complete series on DVD or Blu-ray. Add in the shipping perks plus Prime Music (which is getting better) and I'd say Prime is well worth it....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: In the market for a truck (my '06 Silverado totalled out today) - jordan21210 on 7/28/16 at 8:20 pm
If you get a Ram get a 2010+ 2008 was the last year of the crappy design. 2009 was the first year of the new design. My 2011 was very reliable and my 2015 is so far so good. Only concern with a 2008-10 Silverado is the issue mentioned above. Don't rule out F150's or Tundras either...they'll c...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Augusta,Ga - jordan21210 on 7/28/16 at 7:47 pm
Went for the tournament this year. The city itself is kind of a dump, across the river is where all the rich folk live. We stayed in Madison about an hour and a half outside of Augusta, it seemed to have a pretty nice little historic downtown area and nice parks/fishing with a large reserve lake nea...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Transportation in Italy - jordan21210 on 7/28/16 at 7:08 am
Spent two weeks there and used high speed rail between cities and walked everywhere. In Rome, cabs are cheap...so don't be afraid to use them. If you are doing day trips, a car could come in handy but probably not necessary....

If you have to go to Milan anyway, go spend some time in the Lake Como area. I can recommend an awesome wine and cheese tour if needed. ETA: Cinque Terre is a solid choice too....

re: Has anyone ever used a Portable Air conditioner? - jordan21210 on 7/25/16 at 7:26 am
I bought one to help cool off an upstairs room in my townhome. Didn't work great and wasps kept making nest in the exhaust ducting. I've since moved and brought it with me, going to use it to cool the garage off when detailing my truck and hoping to get a TV and make a hangout area in the garage. I'...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: What frozen dinner type things do you keep in your freezer for an easy meal - jordan21210 on 7/20/16 at 11:22 am
Agreed. TJ Kung pao and chicken fried rice are usually always in my freezer. And the frozen brown or jasmine rice too. Their froze meat sauce lasagna was pretty solid as well. Aside from a variety of TJ frozen products, I typically keep some Mickey Browns hot tamales and burritos in my freezer. ...

The time period is awesome. It's pretty cool to see them go from horse drawn carriage and candle light in the very beginning to having multiple cars and electricity later. Plus the 20's was just an awesome and fascinating time in our history. ...

re: Who wants tight pants? NES Mini - jordan21210 on 7/14/16 at 2:07 pm
Awesome. Think I may try this out. Any reason for Xbox controller or is it just preference? I mentioned N64 bc they're comfortable and seem like they'd work well with older NES and SNES games. I know a lot of gamers like the GameCube ones too. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
