re: Rice beat LSU in 1961 or 1962/ - CharleyLake
I happened to be in Houston at the time and was surprised to see that there were more LSU fans in the stadium. I also recall that the Owls had a decent field goal kicker who was a starting offensive lineman. The Tiger fell a long way since that Carlos Carson game. ...

re: Anyone else’s 401k being rocked? - CharleyLake
Quite the opposite. I have only upgraded my basic stupidity to the disability level. Perhaps my comments will benefit someone. My search for relevance pushes on I suppose. ...

re: Anyone else’s 401k being rocked? - CharleyLake
Per my post of 11-06-18. I made the redistribution yesterday. On 10-24-18 I transferred the balance of my stable value fund to the S & P index fund. The amount of this transfer was 24.6% of my portfolio. I returned this amount and its gain to the S & P yesterday at the market's close. 58.44 S & P po...

re: Anyone else’s 401k being rocked? - CharleyLake
Same here. I moved the balance stable value fund to the S & P index option at a decent discount. When the market returns to its highs I will simply redistribute. On the other hand three of four IRA's are in the bucket. Nothing I can do beyond waiting. ...

re: What is the singular most important factor to beating Bama? - CharleyLake
The collective wisdom of the Rant says "red zone offense." It is reassuring that no one thinks that coaching decisions as opposed to execution could be the single key to winning. ...

What is the singular most important factor to beating Bama? - CharleyLake
If you had to choose only one factor that will mostly contribute to the victory, what will it be? I will go with the turnover margin. 1. turnover ratio 2. field position 3. coaching decisions 4. home field advantage 5. passing efficiency 6. special teams 7. refs 8. other ...

re: Delpit's game - CharleyLake
Yes, I should have mentioned Chad Jones as opposed to Caston. To be fair Toby Caston had perhaps twenty tackles in the game that I recall but most of them were drag downs beyond the line. ...

Delpit's game - CharleyLake
Do any of you remember a better array of outstanding defensive plays from an individual in a single game? Delpit's performance must rank up there with any game from say Caston, Brooks, Brockers, Mathieu, others. What a display of talent. ...

re: Anyone noticed this about Chris Curry - CharleyLake
Yes. Typically I do not notice that kind of trend about an individual's performance unless it is blatant such as fumbles or perhaps holding but I did mention Curry's carries and the corresponding penalties last game. I am in favor of him getting more opportunities as the season moves forward. ...

re: migratory birds - CharleyLake
The eBird information will be very helpful. I made a trip to Peveto last spring and will return based on the sightings provided. Thanks. Many years ago I learned duck identification when the point system was established but I thought most all of the small birds were sparrows. Call it a new hobby...

Is it too early or has the weather too warm to locate typical migratory birds in Southwest Louisiana? I have only seen hummingbird thus far. I am rather new to bird watching....

re: 401k vs IRA YTD change off set? - CharleyLake
Those returns could change every year or even at the end of this year. I opened IRA accounts prior to my employer having the 401K available and kept them. My IRA's are taxed, however. ...

re: pipeline project temporarily halted - CharleyLake
1. Sure we can now say more than it was appraised for. You are probably correct. 2. KPLC had some footage of Gauthier Road area protestors. If you told me that those jamokes were paid I would not argue. 3. Operating inside of the law? No problem with me. Let's say I have had experience with pipel...

re: pipeline project temporarily halted - CharleyLake
Just the opposite. I have no idea how much was offered land owners in St.Martin Parish. However, I suspect that it will be a first for a pipeline company to offer a landowner an exorbitant amount of money for his property used for hunting or even any designated us. What is an exorbitant amount o...

re: pipeline project temporarily halted - CharleyLake
I agree that those that cause environmental damage should be jailed. You tresspass, you go to jail. The law was passed so that there would not be demonstratons that South Dakota endured. Environmental groups would argue that strict trespassing laws are being passed to keep the public from seeing wh...

pipeline project temporarily halted - CharleyLake
Construction of a segment of the Bayou Bridge Pipeline project near St. Martinville was temporarily halted because tree removal and other construction was done on the landowner's property before the expropriation order. Their arrogance knows no limits. The taking of the private property for "public ...
