re: Love letter from my Grandfather to Grandmother in 1946 w/first hand A-bomb account. - BRIllini07
Had to transcribe it and send it to my family so figured I'd throw it on here as well. Left off the last few paragraphs which were full of a bunch of "I miss you so much" type stuff that was a lot less stoic and more touchy feely than the man we remember was. Of course, he was 19 here and in his l...

Love letter from my Grandfather to Grandmother in 1946 w/first hand A-bomb account. - BRIllini07
When my grandparents passed away we discovered they had written each other every few days for the 5 years they had a long distance relationship - and kept the letters. I known my grandfather had been at the Bikini Atoll, but had no idea he documented the experience. A few interesting tidbits burie...

re: Lava Cantina Closing Downtown BR Location - BRIllini07
I'll also add Lucy's shouldn't have closed. I think they panicked that they weren't printing money as a night club anymore when The Office/City Bar opened up but they were still always had a decent crowd and never really looked like they were losing money. ...

re: Lava Cantina Closing Downtown BR Location - BRIllini07
City leadership and the business owners themselves really are killing any momentum downtown had going for it just a few years back. Another new downtown twist I haven't seen mentioned: The S&P parking lots now are booting cars on weekend nights instead of issuing tickets (or just not caring lik...

re: Explosion in obesity related to decline in smoking? - BRIllini07
First to blame: The people themselves, but that's the easy argument. Also to blame: The USDA and media for 30 years, for buying the sugar industry BS that it's not sugar that leads to obesity, it's fat. As a result, we spent the last 30 years stocking our grocery shelves with "low fat" items. ...

re: Britain facing a carbon dioxide shortage - BRIllini07
Just spent the last week in Manchester. The crisis is real. Every bar had a sign saying they may run out of beer due to the CO2 crisis. Every news broadcast was reporting on the situation. On my plane ride back, they had no ice cream because there was no dry ice to be had at the airport. ...

[quote]Should airlines have dress codes?[/quote] Fly enough and you'll have your own dress code. One of my personal priorities: Keep a dry taint and balls throughout the travel day. Breathable boxers and kinda loose fitting jeans/shorts are a must (no holes and not dirty though). Can be ...

re: BTR To Start Offering Nonstop Flights to Orlando and Austin Beginning September 2018 - BRIllini07
I will guarantee this is an Orlando to Austin route that is just taking a stop in BTR, and most of the people on that plane will be Orlando types going to Austin and vice versa. As such, it may stick around for a little while since that makes better economic sense then just hoping Baton Rouge c...

re: Retiring Baby boomers increasingly saying they will need money from their children - BRIllini07
