re: What's in your weekday lunch rotation? - LSUGUMBO
I'm trying to go home more, but I'm one of few in our office that doesn't go out to lunch, so it's tough sometimes. Jason's (salad bar) Jacqueline's Country Tavern Dahn's Noodle House Cush's Imperial Cathay Julie Ann's ...

re: Purchasing Land As Investment - LSUGUMBO
It's kind of a craps shoot on a new development. If the builder goes belly up or if the lots are too high, nobody wants to move in. The subdivision next door to ours has a builder that's VERY proud of the lots and houses that he builds. As a result, there are about 10 houses in a 50 house subdivi...

re: Good Crawfish in Shreveport? - LSUGUMBO
I generally have good luck with Shaver's, but our orders are usually such that he will cook a batch when we pick it up, so I don't usually get just 10-20 lbs. River City Grille in Bossier City is supposed to have good crawfish. I've never eaten them, but I've heard/read good things....

re: What would you do if you were me? - LSUGUMBO
[quote]Also, are you including general living expenses in your "emergency fund"? If not, how much do you have in general expenses?[/quote] Yes, that emergency fund consists of enough money to pay the bills and put food on the table for 8-10 months. Yes, the house thing is all situational. U...

[quote]$20,000 in bank (I've been working for a year) [/quote] Our "emergency fund" is about twice that (wife, 2 kids, that's 6-8 months living expenses). Last year, we qualified for a Roth, so I maxed out a Roth for her and 1 for me from this fund. We qualified again this year, so another $11,0...

re: How does the MB feel about financing furniture at 0% - LSUGUMBO
6 year financing available on furniture??? That's absolutely insane, but I would definitely take advantage. To me, there's nothing wrong with making payments when there's no interest. I'd stick with the plan to pay it off in 2 years or less....

re: Laptop recommendations-- any suggestions appreciated - LSUGUMBO
I'm on my third Toshiba and I have been impressed by all of them. I'd probably still have my second one if it didn't meet an untimely demise by my then 3 year old son. He saw a cord hanging off the table, and like most kids would have done- he pulled it. Laptop was not happy. But I've liked all o...

re: Another Credit Card? - LSUGUMBO
If I were you, I'd try and get a card that has bonus Cash Back or miles attached to spending X amount in the first so many months. Chase Ink has $300 Cash back if you spend $3,000 in 3 months, and it has no interest for 12 months. The Ink Plus is $600 Cash Back if you spend $5,000 in 3 months, b...

re: Lnglf.....who has been stocking up? - LSUGUMBO
I'm averaged at $1.72- There's a part of me that wants to buy more, but I'm a little leary. Would you wait and see if it dips again, or just buy at around $3 and take your chances?...

That's kind of where I am as well- I'm going to wait until they get fully operational and pumping this summer before I look at getting out. I've only got a small position (166 shares), so the money's not too large for me, but this was never a long term hold in my portfolio. I'm already too O&G heav...
