re: Tips for paying off debt? - Bayou Tiger
Step 1 - Free up more monthly cash flow. Take a hard look at all of your monthly bills and fixed costs. Cut out any bills or features you can live without, and call to make sure you have the lowest rates on the stuff you want to keep. Step 2 - Try to be as frugal as possible with daily choices wh...

re: Still on the Learning Curve - 30 year mortgage better than 15 year mortgage? - Bayou Tiger
[quote]I like the 30 year loans due to the flexibility you have if things (job, health, economy, etc) go south and you need to make a lower payment. If you pay extra on the loan every month you can achieve almost the the same thing. [/quote]Yep, I agree and came to post the same thing. I have pa...

re: Did anyone hear the NCAA reasoning for playing today in the pregame? - Bayou Tiger
The catcher excuse makes no sense. Put in another catcher. Imagine if we asked the NCAA to space out games a few days apart so we could throw our ace every game but need to make sure he has enough rest....

re: Ways to improve interviewing skills - Bayou Tiger
I would highly recommend the Interview Series of podcasts by Manager Tools. Over my career I have spent plenty of time screening candidates and interviewing, but that podcast series was a huge help during my recent job search. It was $100-200 or something like that, but I listened and applied the...

re: What's the longest you've gone without sleep, ie, tied one on, bender, etc? - Bayou Tiger
40 hours is not unusual for me. I usually do this once every few months or so if work is really busy. I just work through one day at the office straight through to the end of the next day. As long as I am zoned in on what I am working on, usually not much coffee is involved. There is usually one ...

Best Interest-Only HELOCs? - Bayou Tiger
We recently purchased a new house. With a significant bit of equity, I would prefer to have the funds available through a HELOC to provide additional liquidity. The nice part about a HELOC is that you only pay interest charges when you have an outstanding balance unlike a home equity loan where you ...

re: References on a resume or not? - Bayou Tiger
Don't put references and don't put "References Available Upon Request". Of course they are. Do you put "Drug Test Available Upon Request" or "Interviews Available Upon Request"? After looking at resumes over the years that has become a pet peeve along with World Wide Web proficiency and goofy email ...

re: Fazoli's on Siegen Lane - Baton Rouge - Bayou Tiger
I used to love eating at Fazoli's back in the day. The food was decent but way better than fast food burgers. Unfortunately at all of the locations I went to the management sucked. It must have been a corporate issue. Fazoli's was on my poorly managed shite list along with Whitney Bank and Ser...

re: Home Warranty Recommendations - Bayou Tiger
I've been reading a lot of negatives online about AHS and home warranty companies in general. The basic theme is that home warranties no longer make big replacements of AC, etc, if something major is wrong. They just nickel and dime you to death replacing one part at a time charging 75 dollars every...
