re: Squatters set up in Municipal Auditorium - GeauxldMember
I'd noticed more homeless folks around the auditorium the last couple of times I've gone to events at Mahalia Jackson, but didn't realize they were staying in there. It makes sense now. That place has got to be all kinds of nasty. I've seen rats the size of Yugos run out of there. ...

re: ot baws, school me in the world of grill cleaners - GeauxldMember
If you have the round bar type grate, there is nothing better than a grill wizard (basically a wooden handle with replaceable steel wool pads). But other types of grates can tear it up. If you use wire brushes, pray you never bite into a stray wire. Also, FDB would probably have better input...

re: How does one handle the burden of being the best crawfish boiler of all time? - GeauxldMember
I shut the gas as soon as the water gets back to a boil after adding the bugs. No shot at overcooking, just let the soaking do its work. More than one way to skin a cat, I just found I've had the best results that way. ...

re: What's your go to brand for leather dress shoes? - GeauxldMember
I've got a few AEs, Ferragamo, Magnanni, but I like my To Boot shoes more than any of the others. I've had a pair of their Chelseas now forever. I'm hard on those shoes and they still look fantastic. I take them to the cobbler about once a year or so, and they come back good as new. ...

re: Reasonable price for annual termite contract? - GeauxldMember
Yep. My uncle had like $40-50k of damage a few years ago and they tried the same bullshitee with him. Once he got the lawyers involved, he finally got them to pay up, but I know my uncle still came out of pocket a good bit in the end....

re: Reasonable price for annual termite contract? - GeauxldMember
The bigger question for me is have any of you had to file a claim for damage that occurred under contract? I've known three different people who have and in each of those cases, the homeowner had to sue to get the termite company to perform. Just curious if anyone else has had similar negative--...

re: Is it legal to park on hell strip (Metairie) - GeauxldMember
That's what I figured. I think it's pretty universal that once you leave the road (excluding a driveway) to park, you're ticketable. [quote]What is a hell strip?[/quote] The property between the road and the sidewalk....

Is it legal to park on hell strip (Metairie) - GeauxldMember
My buddy has a rental property in Metairie he is renovating. I went out there today to help him and he was bitching about several cars parked on the lawn between the street and sidewalk, as he couldn't keep the grass alive. I told him to leave notes on the cars, asking they not park on the grass, bu...

re: cooking SNAFUs. let's hear them. - GeauxldMember
I started a chimney of charcoal and, in my drunken state, forgot I had. When I recalled I started it, went outside and found I'd also left it close enough to my Thermoworks meter, that the heat melted it. It sucks when you have to direct anger at yourself! :lol: :banghead:...
