re: Tornado! Threat Clearing Louisiana - eitek1
I'm about a 12 minute walk from the fairgrounds and it's pretty nasty outside. Lots of thunder and lightning. If anyone is at Jazzfest, they are regretting it right about now....

re: Anyone ever mess with 120-film cameras? Medium format old style cameras - eitek1
My wife has the exact same camera. I bought it for her in Germany. Her camera looks like brand new. She hasn't ever used it which is disappointing. Please post some pics when you get them developed. I'd love to see them. ...

re: Who's watching the Blue Angels this weekend - eitek1
I was in Pensacola and watched them practice last week. One of the folks in the crowd had a radio programmed to the same Freq the Blue Angels used. We got to hear the radio traffic throughout the show. It was pretty funny. You would think the radio transmissions would be incredibly brief and c...

re: Relocating to New Orleans. Where to live? - eitek1
[quote] I figured that was close to happening. I bought a house in Bayou St. John last year. When I bought there were quite a few options in my area. Not so much anymore. Available options are moving closer to Broad/Galvez, but the rate of gentrification is staggering in areas I didn't even conside...

re: Relocating to New Orleans. Where to live? - eitek1
You can look around Bayou St. John or some of the areas down Esplanade. I live near there and I ride by bike to work in the CBD sometimes. It's faster on bike than it is to drive my car and park and walk. The area is pretty nice and it's pretty convenient. ...

re: Need a new Richard's Disposal trash can in NOLA - eitek1
You ever try to throw away a trash can. It's almost impossible. When I lived in another location, I had to cut one up and put it in another one to get rid of it. ...

re: Married baws - how do y'all handle finances - eitek1
My wife doesn't work and I've come to the conclusion that I can't make more than my wife can spend. If I make more she spends more. It just works out that way. I max out my 401k and all the rest but I handle all the bills and everything financial. She has access to the joint account but is not...

re: Best running routes in New Orleans - eitek1
Go to the back end of the quarter and run up Esplanade. It dead-ends into city park. It also intersects St. Johns Bayou so you could run that if you wanted to. It's 2.5 miles from the quarter to city park down Esplanade one way. Running to the park and back is 5 miles. It looks a little sket...

re: Brake Tag / Inspection Sticker - eitek1
Your windshield CAN be cracked. The crack can't be in the drivers field of vision by some defined margin. I've read it before but I don't remember where it is. (Edit... it's below) You can look it up and it'll tell you if you are correct or not. If you are correct, print out the law and bring it...

re: Friday freaking wierd stuff #2 sugar conspiracy - eitek1

re: Do liver detoxes work? - eitek1
My father underwent a mission at a fairly young age to completely destroy his liver before he was an old man. He was pretty successful along the way. He ended up with liver issues late in life that caused some problems for him. He decided to fix it by going to the drug store and buying a product ...

re: Why is it so hard for yankees to do a Southern accent? - eitek1
Probably the best southern accent I've seen anyone pull off was the character "Hoot" played by Eric Bana in Black Hawk Down. He's English and pulled it off. [link=(https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=WsyVRpW4xNk)]LINK[/link] ...

re: Any good Mardi Gras stories? - eitek1
I just re-read it and it's not very clear. It pretty clearly says "IN" a parade. If you aren't "IN" a parade as in a participant I guess you are OK. I've misread that for years....

re: Any good Mardi Gras stories? - eitek1
The Louisiana Revised Statute is pretty clear on this. R.S. 40:1379.3 (N) states that no concealed handgun may be carried into and no concealed handgun permit issued pursuant to this Section shall authorize or entitle a permittee to carry a concealed handgun in any of the following: A law enfor...

re: Audible board...I have 2 credits to burn - eitek1
Pillars of the earth is great. I read Shogun about 25 years ago. I loved it and really thought it was a great book, one of the best I've read. I found the audio book, all 53 hours of it. It's just as good as it was 25 years ago. Really worth a listen....
