re: Home alarm system...who do you use? - GoIrish02
[quote]Why should I get a contract for remote monitoring? So I get a call if something happens? Is that worth $25 a month? [/quote] Not sure if you're serious, but most people want the monitoring so the system will notify the police if you have an alarm. A local alarm is about as useful as an unl...

re: The number of aircraft landing in Memphis is amazing - GoIrish02
[quote]Looks like they could really use a west coast hub. [/quote] All major logistics companies are based/headquartered in or near Tennessee (i.e. Memphis/West Memphis, AR to Paducah, KY) because that location will reach roughly 80% of the US population in a day, by road, river or air. There's ...

re: Video of kid riding ATV on I-10 in NOLA....woman is not amused. - GoIrish02
They travel in packs up and down Airline Highway, between Causeway Blvd to the Orleans/Jefferson parish line, mostly on weekends but I've seen them on weekdays in afternoons now too. 3 of them nearly ran into our car last Sunday midday as we turned onto Airline, coming from Metairie Playground. T...

re: Booray Card Game - GoIrish02
Do you play dealer antes only per game or each player antes per game? We put a limit on the bourre amount / dealer ante ($2~5) in the family game. Even then, you'll get pots 10-12x that amount as they roll over. Pot match can get big quick....

re: Booray Card Game - GoIrish02
Sounds like you should've passed, at least once in those 6 times. If you won big but then lost 6 times in a row, you just got greedy when you should've played tighter (or you didn't know what you're doing). I learned the game as a kid, it's not very difficult to understand the minimum cards to decid...

I know the Superdome doesn't require tickets for age 6 and under for Saints games. If you can carry the child in most college stadiums I've attended, no ticket is required....

re: Anyone have success sneaking in to sporting events? - GoIrish02
If you bought 3 tickets for 3 adults, how did you "sneak" in? You can bring kids to games for free in most stadiums until around 6 years old or so. ...

re: Amazon Subscribe & Save - GoIrish02
We've had the Chase Visa for a year, we call it the Christmas fund with the (now) 5% rebate, and I just got the Amazon store card with the 5% rebate. You can get a $70 credit for applying for the store card, plus it has an automatic interest free financing option on big $ purchases....

re: Amazon Subscribe & Save - GoIrish02
No, it's just easier to get 5 in any delivery if I have a consistent list in front of me. I don't need shampoo, razors and garbage bags every month, but we'll need 5 things from a list of 10~15 staples every six weeks. Six weeks is the most efficient cycle for us rather than 1 month (2 adults, 2 ...

re: Amazon Subscribe & Save - GoIrish02
Toilet paper, paper towels, toothpaste, deodorant, nonperishable foods, anything else you buy at Sam's/Costco and Walmart to a lesser extent. You can get everything they sell at warehouse clubs for less, delivered to your door, and drop all your other memberships. You don't have to buy stuff ever...

Where do you find the rentals? I'm more interested in your initial scenario, renting someone's timeshare for less than similar accommodations. Any advice on good market for the secondary market. Slight hijack, I remember a thread on renting DVC points or stays in a similar secondary market. Any ...

re: New Orleans now has "mobile camera units" to ticket speeders - GoIrish02
[quote] civil traffic infractions are ultimately issued by law enforcement.[/quote] "Civil traffic infraction" is an oxymoron. Why aren't these "civil traffic infractions" reported to any motor vehicle records database, on par with real speeding or other reckless vehicle operation citations?...

re: New Orleans now has "mobile camera units" to ticket speeders - GoIrish02
[quote] It's a civil penalty. [/quote] All the more reason why it's a sham. A real speeding ticket is a criminal issue and if it were about "saving lives" and protecting kids as he said in his press conference, the violation would be dealt with in the same context. Removing it from a traditi...

re: New Orleans now has "mobile camera units" to ticket speeders - GoIrish02
I agree, Mitch has found the sweet spot where it's too expensive to fight and the easier route is to pay. Too bad he can't invest the same effort in managing the city budget efficiently to avoid this blatant money grab that's already failed in other cities....
