re: Hogs head cheese - monteandmakers
I like Creole Country Sausage’s hogs head. It has larger chunks of meat mixed in if you like that style. You can find it at some groceries (I know Dorignacs carries it) or go to the shop where they make it in mid city. ...

re: Why do covers for grills & patio furniture leak? - monteandmakers
I have a King Kong grill cover and it has worked great for the 2-3 years I’ve had it. It has been out in the elements the entire time and has not degraded at all. ...

re: Is it normal to stop caring about everything when you get old? - monteandmakers
Did y’all find that when you had kids you became less interested in activities you used to partake in? I have a two year old and work a lot during the week so I only see him about an hour a day. On the weekends I just want to spend time with him and other things (bars, concerts, weekend long trips...

re: Learning Macros to further develop efficiency skills - monteandmakers
You may want to look into a BI tool like Tableau or Power BI if you are just wanting to create reports for end users. We’ve started using Power BI instead of excel reports and the users have been much more receptive to it. Regarding macros, I’ve written a few simple macros to automate processes ...

re: From Top To Bottom, How Do Casinos Operate? - monteandmakers
Not sure if this is what you’re looking for, but have knowledge that during Katrina Harrahs couldn’t get all of the money and chips out in time. Once they knew it would be a base for law enforcement and others they changed the hallway door signs of important rooms. Areas such as the chip room were...

re: Tell me if my thoughts on roulette are incorrect - monteandmakers
[quote]Each spin you have a 1:38 chance to hit. With each spin that does not hit the number you choose, the “probability” that the number you selected hits will go up. This is what probability is.[/quote] That would be true if they covered up numbers so the ball couldn’t fall in those pockets. ...

re: Would you rather live in New Orleans or Memphis? - monteandmakers
I’ve lived in both and prefer NOLA by a large margin. NOLA has its issues, but Memphis did nothing for me. There wasn’t much to do or see, food was meh (you better love BBQ), not many nice parts of town in Memphis proper, Blues music is meh. Beale is nicer than Bourbon but it’s only a few blocks ...

re: What value does a graduate degree represent to you - monteandmakers
My undergrad degree did not have anything to do with business or finance so an MBA really helped open doors. After graduating I got in with a F500 finance department, four years later I’m making $50k more than my pre-MBA job. Now, there’s a lot of hard work and long hours in there, but I don’t th...

re: Does anyone at your work put (Name,MBA) in email signature line? - monteandmakers
I have an MBA and would never do it. When I see others do it I always think they are desperate for some sort of recognition or validation. Another one that is funny is nurses with a bachelors degree; they always have RN, BSN in their signatures. Uh, congrats on the degree??...

re: Have any of you ever found out how much $ a co-worker makes? - monteandmakers
I work in a position where I have access to salaries of the group I support, not my direct co-workers. Can be depressing to see what some people make (well over $100k) when their output is complete crap and they come up with every excuse in the book. They must be good at something I’m not seeing....
