re: 4 employees leave LSU over state law dispute that required vehicle registration - Tarps99
I also heard that they may have been retirees with Illinois with pensions. Must be nice to collect 250k and an extra 100k or more a year in mailbox money after working only 20 years. Moving may have affected this free money from Illinois. Another thing they could have had second jobs or co...

re: Has anybody ever put butter in their coffee? - Tarps99
I wouldn’t see a problem with it. Doesn’t everything you eat end up in the same place? So if you are looking for a few grams of fat and dairy proteins, I would say this is okay. What are you supposed to do just eat the butter like a cube of cheese? I as a child remember dipping buttered toa...

re: Any recommendations for keeping care of my Fruit Trees? - Tarps99
I hear Dan Gill talk about horticultural oils for citrus, but my trees this past year were almost maintenance free. I had navals the size of softballs. I have a naval and a Louisiana sweet. They are full of flower this year and I did not fertilize this year. This year I may try some oils to make ...

re: Dedicated or NonDedicated/Shared Internet Access - Tarps99
Just to update...I did one other test where I isolated the cable internet and the FTP appliances and got the same result in case something was hogging bandwidth on the network. So it appears that either Comcast has a throttle on FTP traffic or there is a trottle at the FTP site....

re: Alabama votes to screw its residents at the gas pump. - Tarps99
My biggest problem with Road Construction is costs. They seem to have grown into the same stratosphere as medical costs. A road that may have cost 1 million a mile in the 1970s; now can cost 20 million or more per mile. Just remember, some engineers make a 1/3 of the cost just to design the...

re: Kansas couple has eaten at Texas Roadhouse, 6 days a week, for 15 years - Tarps99
I don’t understand the media’s obsession of people’s life choices. The earlier this year they run a story about a man who wants to retire to the comfy confines of a Holiday Inn or other motel to spend the last years of his life. Now this, about a couple who love to eat out every day in exchang...

re: The Advocate: Speeding fines is a lot of small Louisiana towns' bread and butter - Tarps99
Here is what the locals would say: Drive slow see our town. Drive fast see our jail. I feel for the many people who had to drive down to Grand Isle pre backroad days (before 3235). It feels like an eternity driving through Golden Meadow on LA 1 from the few times I had to drive through t...
