[quote] - I wanted to add, as far as LSUAfro's wife goes, you gotta put things in perspective. The LSUAfro couple is spoilt. You can't expect someone to get off Etihad Residence and walk into a TS presentation [/quote] Yep. I screwed the pooch by spoiling my wife too early on this game. She was 25...

[quote]Wouldn't there be tax implications on you "paying rent" to your wife since that would be treated as taxable rental income? [/quote] My first thought as well. But it's only about $15k, so it's under the federal reporting limit for electronic sent payments for a year. ...

re: Priceline "Hotel Fees' - LSUAfro

[quote]think the nostalgia dims reviewers' taste buds, but I haven't been in years[/quote] Yep. I think that's probably common of of places like this, but scratch made old world Italian with care is always a thumbs up in my book. Not common place for many spots in Louisiana these days. ...

re: Mosca's Nola - Thoughts? - LSUAfro
