re: Real Estate Fee Question - CharleyLake
"Loophole" is correct. Good to know. Is what you are telling me is that the company (who actually located the purchaser) for the owner is obliged to represent the purchaser and is known as the buyers agent? Typically what percentage of the 3% does the individual that obtained the initial listi...

re: Duck decoys - CharleyLake
Both my knowledge and collection of "western" decoys is rather limited. Most of mine are from SE LA. Robby Price is a teacher at LAHS who works as a guide at a hunting lodge during the season is a collector. He knows an older gentleman who has an impressive collection of decoys and calls that reside...

re: I-10 bridge replacement project in Lake Charles may get federal funding under Trump's plan - CharleyLake
I recall the EDC leak. I was working at a nearby industry where EDC was used as a feedstock for Vinyl Chloride production. We were told that the loading line to the barge had over twenty clamps. Pretty sad....

Bayou Bridge Pipeline - CharleyLake
A Baton Rouge judge is expected to rule on allowing continuation of the construction of the Bayou Bridge pipeline. It appears that an alliance is forming between two unlikely groups of landowners who are opposed to private-for-profit companies abuse of the power of eminent domain and environmen...

re: Duck decoys - CharleyLake
My brother had a rather nice collection of vintage working decoys that were mostly given to him by boat drivers in the Grand Isle area. They were likely lost during storms. For some reason he stripped the paint off of all of them likely with the idea of repainting them before he passed away. The col...

re: Duck decoys - CharleyLake
This is the first information that any were burned. My older brother lived in New Orleans in the 1960's. There was a guy that owned a service station/tire repair place not too far from where the Superdome is located. My brother told me that the owner traded the new lighter weighted decoys one for on...

re: Duck decoys - CharleyLake
My collection, also about three dozen, includes one from the Venice area that my brother found in the marsh when he worked for Gulf Oil Company in 1964. I brought it to a decoy show in Baton Rouge but was unable to get the carver identified by the experts. Many of the decoys from Plaquemines Parish...

re: More carnage in the stock market on Monday? - CharleyLake
The only thing that will convince me is a decline in housing starts and that is not even been close. A tempory drop in dividends or a slight bump in interest rates by the Fed will not dissuade me either from believing that the economy is strong. ...

re: More carnage in the stock market on Monday? - CharleyLake
Agree. Eventually it will return. In a previous thread (1-25-18) I declared that I was moving 25% of a stable value fund to the S & P 500 index fund within a 401K plan. In order to be forthcoming I moved an additional 75% the next day. The average "purchase" price was at 2830.2. As you know the over...

re: Duck decoys - CharleyLake
That appears to be what is known as a "Pascagoula Decoy" which was likely make by a wood lathe in a factory in that town. If so, the factory operated in the 1930's. ...

re: Anyone have Oil lease experience? - CharleyLake
I have some but it is limited as a landowner. Most experience is with pipeline companies' ROW & Servitudes. My older generation has an active lease with 10% royalty. It has limited production today. Look up Louisiana minerals perscription and you will see that the law is good for you even if the pro...

re: S & P 500 Index Fund - CharleyLake
I agree with you relating to the no return comment. I have decided to transfer 25% stable value to the S & P Index Fund to start with. I am retired and receive Social Security and are fortunate enough to collect a traditional monthly pension but I hope that I "have a long way to go." I will r...
