re: Punta Cana, DR - Geaux Frogs on 7/6/16 at 2:06 pm
We stayed at the Paradisus Palma Real a few years ago in June. It is an amazing resort, everything was very nice, and very well taken care of. The resorts were nice, the actual city is sketchy. Being off the property was a little uncomfortable, and we are well traveled. So...make sure you pick a ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: It's a great time to visit the UK - Geaux Frogs on 6/24/16 at 9:56 am
Most branches will not have a large amount of foreign currency, if they have any at all. You can place an "order" at the local branch and pick it up at the branch in a few days. They may charge a nominal fee, but that is going to be the best option on actual currency exchange. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Italy Vacation November 2017 - May 2018 Timeframe - Geaux Frogs on 6/20/16 at 10:47 am
I absolutely agree with the "more Florence, less Rome" sentiment. Florence blew my expectations out of the water. Rome was exactly what I expected. We also stayed in a sleepy little Tuscan town/village for a few nights and have AMAZING, postcard-like pictures from that. Everyone was pretty fri...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Absinthe at Caesar's was a great show. I am a fan of all of the big production shows as well, but Absinthe was just fun. I recommend this to everyone who is going to Vegas, and I have never heard any negative feedback once they get back....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: What's your opinion of the Fort Worth/TCU area? - Geaux Frogs on 6/9/16 at 8:28 am
TCU is an outstanding school with a beautiful campus. Ft. Worth, as others have described, has all of the benefits of a big city, but keeps a small town feel. Ft. Worth is also very diverse; there is a big enough selection of bars/areas of town that anyone can find something that they feel comfort...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Spotify...worth it? - Geaux Frogs on 6/3/16 at 10:49 am
Absolutely...Spotify is probably running 3-4 hours a day for me. The commute to work, any workouts, and while just sitting around the house. Definitely worth the subscription to be able to make playlists and have instant availability of just about any song or album you want....

re: Any areas in Gulf Shores/Orange Beach similar to Seaside, FL? - Geaux Frogs on 5/30/16 at 4:24 pm
We are looking for something similar in that I can allow my teenage daughters to step out and get snow cones or food in the evenings without needing us with them. My girls also have fun just hanging out around the movie nights and such. I love the accessibility to restaurants and shops, as well...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
Any areas in Gulf Shores/Orange Beach similar to Seaside, FL? - Geaux Frogs on 5/29/16 at 10:05 pm
We try to go to Destin/Seaside/Santa Rosa every Summer. We are up for something different, and want to know if there are any areas similar to Seaside in that area. We have 2 teens, and Seaside has something for everyone....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: Working in Chile...How is the country? Is it safe? - Geaux Frogs on 5/16/16 at 3:16 pm
I spent 2 weeks in Chile during 2011, and for what it is worth, I would move there tomorrow if I could make it work. I felt very safe, but we stayed in what is considered the nicest part of Santiago, and in another resort town. The people are very friendly, but if you don't know Spanish, you may st...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Would a fully indoor 18 hole golf course be possible? - Geaux Frogs on 9/9/15 at 1:56 pm
I believe Cowboys Stadium covers over 70 acres, and was said to have the largest span in an arch supported building ever built. I guess you could put two structures like that side by side and make it work. The way that I play golf, I rarely play from the nice manicured grass anyway, so playing o...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Honeymoon in Chile - Geaux Frogs on 2/18/15 at 11:49 am
Chile was an amazing trip. Itis safe to travel there, as long as you use your common sense and stay to the areas that seem safe. We felt very safe at any restaurant, park, or market. Walking most streets and public transportation seemed very safe as well. Santiago is like any other big city, h...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Patterson Double standard? - Geaux Frogs on 9/7/13 at 4:07 pm
100º and 11 am kickoff vs. a less than spectacular opponent usually results in weak crowds. The stadium also has open concourses designed for great standing room sight lines. It sure is nice to stand 30 rows up from the field in the shade with a nice breeze coming through....

I describe them as the municiple bus of the airline industry. The plane was disgustingly dirty...I found a used baby's diaper in the seat pocket. The flight crew does not clean the plane between flights, they ask that everyone take their trash on their way out and trust that it happens. Baggage...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: TCU picked to finish 3rd - Geaux Frogs on 7/22/13 at 11:38 am
Last year's team and the final record can not really be used to measure the strength of this team. They had a lot of off the field issues and injuries that factored into those six losses. What that did was allow a very young team to gain valuable experience to supplement the return of several key ...

During the summer it is so hot, most courses run specials to fill tee times. I haven't paid a published green fee anywhere in about 10 years. I always use Golf Now and find discounted tee times. Look around, you may be surprised at what you find. I am a terrible golfer, but enjoy playing, so I r...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
