re: Is this roux too dark? - Specktricity on 1/15/16 at 3:45 pm
That roux looks perfectly fine. In the future, cook your roux until it gets to be exactly that color. Then throw in the chopped vegetables which will stop the cooking process and prevent your roux from burning. :cheers:...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: LSU football had a 10 percent dip in attendance? - Specktricity on 12/14/15 at 1:04 pm
Article is complete BS. Not only did they screw up the 2015 number, the 2014 number they have is more than capacity. The real number for 2014 is 101,723. 2014 - 101,723 2015 - 101,978 So actually a slight bump. but its tickets sold not actual so its really not relevant anyway....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]What rates are they renegotiating that y'all are talking about?[/quote] Labor and materials rates for service companies. At the start of the year they asked for reduced rates so they could "keep the budget straight". Everyone knew they were a healthy company, and are likely using the fact...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]Great news. They frick the vendors by not paying their bills on time and renegotiate to bring bring prices down because they aren't making any money. [/quote] Seriously, WTF. As a vendor of theirs, I'm scratching my head to figure out why we were strong armed into lowering our rates...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

[quote]frick that guy. I hope he gets the maximum sentence possible.[/quote] I agree, to be that reckless and cause such a horrible accident is one thing. To flee the scene and not even acknowledge what you did is unforgivable. I see jackasses drive like this all the time, and I just hope they do...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: 1980 Lake Peigneur Sinkhole, Older O&G guys, were you around for this? - Specktricity on 10/8/15 at 11:14 am
The gift shop at jefferson island has a lot of cool stories and photos of this event. Its really cool, I would encourage people to stop by. Can someone explain to me why the bayou corne sink hole didn't look anything like the lake Peigneur incident? I thought they were similar situations....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

No chance that ESPN passes on the opportunity to showcase Fournette along with a unique natural disaster situation like this. They will do whatever they have to do to get this game in as many households as possible....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]I hope they don't hit you with "overlimit" fees.[/quote] Yep, I would be very wary of this. Credit card companies love to come up with new ways to hit you with fees and thus increase their revenue. ...

IDK it sounds to me like they just don't want to have to fix anything if something comes up in the inspection. I think they are still obligated to execute your contract if your okay with the inspection results. ...

Yeah I don't agree with this at all. Gordy is actually a very good analyst. He comes on 104.5 from time to time, and you can really tell he knows what he's talking about. I get the feeling he has access to a lot of the discussions regarding schemes and game planning from week to week....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
