re: Name a year you would like to go back to - vistajay
1986, spring of senior year in HS and the summer afterwards. But I would probably just be too stressed trying to avoid meeting my future wife. I met her at just the right time 4 years later. If I met her in 1986 it would have been a disaster....

re: Hondas holding their fricking value, is it worth it?? - vistajay
[quote]Honda power steering issues/pump failures are very prevalent. Honda uses their very own special fluid that loses its viscosity well before 100,000 miles and if not completely flushed out will cause premature pump failures.[/quote] I am seeing that now with my Honda Pilot. Then again, it i...

re: Best Restaurants for Lunch in Metairie - vistajay
If one of your co-workers is female, take them to Blue Line on Metairie Rd. You will complain about the food to price ration, but the gals will love it. I am not a chick but I like it when I want a light meal....

Offshoot- What is the max time you will wait for a server - vistajay
Admittedly this is more of a problem when I am traveling for work and dining alone, but how long will you wait, once seated, before a server comes to your table and at least takes a drink order and gives you a menu? I get ansy after five minutes. Ten munutes and I am walking out....

re: Anyone ever used an engineless push mower? - vistajay
Just tried out my new Scotts 20 inch Classic this week. Grass was a little long and wet but mower still worked well. First I tried it on a high setting, then a couple days later tried it on the low setting. Both worked great on everything except some thin weeds. Really liked not having to start and...

re: How did your dogs die? - vistajay
Childhood dog wandered off and never came back. Current 10 yr old mutt will probably get hit chasing the UPS truck or my wife will kill him, but if he survives that he has at least another decade....

re: Anyone ever used an engineless push mower? - vistajay
I just ordered a Scotts 20 inch Classic reel mower. I am not mechanically adept, and was tired of spending money trying to fix my gas mowers and their not working when I need them. My plan is to accept that the reel mower will not be a perfect cut, cut the yard religiously, and borrow a neighbor's...

re: Cheating marathoner busted by high-res picture of her Garmin fitness tracker - vistajay
To make it worse, she went out the afternoon after the marathon and biked the course with her GPS in an attempt to create a false record to prove she had run the entire course. She only admitted cheating after this internet investigator posted the pic of her running watch time from just after the r...

re: san fran chronicle: best wines in america under $10 ... - vistajay
They liked the Sutter Home Cab NV too. I had no idea Sutter Home made decent cheap stuff. Will have to try. Personally, I am on a Crane Lake kick at the moment. Their Chardonnay is a decent quaffing wine for my dog walks, at $4.49 a bottle....

re: Best way to buy salmon? - vistajay
Sure wild is better but usually a lot more expensive. Farm raised is fine. The important thing is to buy from a vendor that sells a lot of salmon. For example, in NOLA I buy from Restaurant Depot because it is usually between $4.99 and $6.99 a pound and is extremely fresh because they sell a ton of...

re: Top Golf coming to New Orleans? - vistajay
Like anything else in NOLA, it's not far from a ghetto area. But the area would be fine for that type of usage. Restaurant Depot and Home Depot are in that area. A new building just went up next to it. Getting in would be easy as you just get off the Howard exit and stay on the service road. Gett...

re: Where would you rank New Orleans for dining in the U.S.? - vistajay
Keep seeing Vegas brought up in this thread. Not real familiar with that scene so am curious. I imagine Vegas has some high end restaurants in the casinos but outside the gambling area does it have the depth of quality, diverse restaurants that some of these other cities have?...
