re: Smartwatches - Tiger_n_Texas
Only experience I have is with my Galaxy Watch 3. It came with a leather band but I swapped it out with a metal band. Just not a fan of leather or silicon. My only gripe (and it could be my specific watch) is the bluetooth distance. My wife has a Galaxy Active 2 that she put a silicone band on. ...

Recommendations on headphones for the gym - Tiger_n_Texas
Anyone have recommendations for some over the ear headphones that can handle heavy gym sweat? My ear buds can't handle it. Apparently I get to an 11 on a 1-10 scale of how much do you sweat. Buds have started falling out and the right one may be dead completely. I'm not an audiophile that needs t...

re: Thank you and status update that morphed into a menu options for kids advice request - Tiger_n_Texas
Thanks everyone for the suggestions. Some of these things we've already implemented, but its good to see others using them also. When we eat dinner they have to at least try it. If they do and don't like it, they are more then welcome to any leftovers or to make a sandwich. We don't really ke...

Thank you and status update that morphed into a menu options for kids advice request - Tiger_n_Texas
TL;DR: I've lost weight with advice from this board. Does anyone have healthy, kid-proven menu ideas? Just wanted to post a simple thank you to the posters here. It's been several months since I posted anything on this board and wanted to give an update. I'm down about 30 lbs total since my la...

re: Wife buying pregnancy tests - Tiger_n_Texas
My wife had an IUD after our first child was born. We thought all was well until one day she thought she might be pregnant. Went to the doctor and found out she was 3 months already. Apparently it got knocked out/loose at some point. They aren't perfect by any means, our youngest is proof o...

re: Freezer blowing cold air, but not freezing. - Tiger_n_Texas
I dont know if the LG freezers use the same compressors as their refrigerators or not. If they do, it could be failing. My LG refrigerator has gone thru 2 compressors in 5-6 years. This last failure totaled the whole unit as it caused a leak in the yoder tube (which is unrepairable). Still waiti...

re: How does the EPA ruling change Texas' ability to regulate its power output (if at all)? - Tiger_n_Texas
Thanks all for the quick responses. The responses were pretty much in line with what I was thinking/expecting. Do what you have to do and let them come after you after the fact. They can try to prove they have the authority in court. ...

How does the EPA ruling change Texas' ability to regulate its power output (if at all)? - Tiger_n_Texas
A lot of the chatter during the Texas freeze disaster centered around Texas not being allowed to ramp up its power production during the 2021 freeze due to Fed regulations. Setting aside what the true causes were, does this ruling mean that the EPA does not have the authority (currently) to tell Te...

re: wondering if any texas based posters are going to check in and brag about $20 electricity - Tiger_n_Texas
I've been in Texas for ~9 years. I've never seen a $20 electricity bill (unless it was the 1st bill in a contract that had a promo credit applied). You can play the game here of trying to stay below/above certain kWh usages to get/avoid credits/charges with 6 month plans (which I've done in the ...

re: Power Provider Texas - Tiger_n_Texas
Like others have said, powertochoose lets you search rates and contracts of various providers. Most of these "providers" are actually just the different billing companies. For example in the Houston area, power is provided and lines maintained by Centerpoint. However there are tons of companies t...
