re: Let's see what BLM does now - GumbeauxGuy
I guess you didn't hear Don Lemon when he announced that the BLM is a movement meant to call out only Police brutality against the black community, evidently you need to start a separate movement to call attention to B on B crime/murders. I guess it doesn't make sense to have one movement cover all ...

re: How long did it take you to finish undergrad? - GumbeauxGuy
I started college right after high school, I went off and on for about 2 years and dropped out, got a job, got married, had kids worked on my career. After many years on the job I became frustrated with my lack of advancement so I decided to return to school and get my business degree. I had to star...

re: The moment you realized you were poor growing up - GumbeauxGuy
When I was in high school I remember standing in line at the grocery store and seeing a lady in front of me paying her bill with food stamps. There was something familiar about the colors of the paper they were printed on, suddenly, it hit me like a brick, that was the same color of the "money" that...

re: Do you ever have to break it to someone that life isn't fair? - GumbeauxGuy
I was one of those "why does this happen to me" types. I got tired of feeling that everything was stacked against me so I made a change to my life instead of hoping someone would change my path for me. I went back to school and got my degree, ended up staying at the same company and was promoted 3 t...

re: FDA finally names dog food brands linked to deadly heart disease in dogs - GumbeauxGuy
My wife and I thought we were doing good by giving our small dog the "healthy" dog food. Nutro was our choice. The problem was that she was gaining weight even though we were very careful with her portion control. About 4-5 months ago we started making her food with fresh turkey, peas and carrots, b...

re: [For those in relationships currently] How did you meet your partner? - GumbeauxGuy
She was my brother's girlfriend's roommate. I was new to the Baton Rouge area and my brother invited me to tag along with he and his girlfriend as they were bringing a cookie cake to her for her birthday. It was Sept 12th 1988, I thought she was really attractive, out of my league and didn't think I...

re: O-T Elders who were alive during the Apollo 11 mission - GumbeauxGuy
I do remember watching, only because my parents were making a big deal out of it. I was only about 5 years old but remember having a few neighbors in the house, we were all crowded around a small black and white TV. I don't remember understanding the historical aspect of the event just that it meant...

re: Do you donate to your alma mater? - GumbeauxGuy
I was very fortunate to receive a full scholarship to SHSU. They took a chance on an older, non-traditional student. Because of this reason I give to them every year. I feel like I owe them something for what they did for me. That being said, had I paid for my school I may have had a completely diff...

re: On FB, do you unfollow, delete, block, or allow things that you don't agree with - GumbeauxGuy
I would never unfollow, delete or block just because I don't agree with someone. However, if they're one of those people that feel as if they have to remind the world every 10 minutes about how right they are regarding the latest political issue I will unfollow them. I just don't want my feed clutte...

re: Tell me about a time you really fricked something up and got away with it. - GumbeauxGuy
We were walking to school one morning and passed a collection of cement drain pipes, 5-6 ft long and about 2 ft in diameter. There were boxes laying around the pipes filled with strips of tar. 1/2 inch thick, 2 inches wide and about 3 - 4 ft long. The tar strips were going to be used as an adhesive ...

re: Anyone here that doesn't live in their hometown... - GumbeauxGuy
I'm from a very small town in West Central LA. Most of the people I finished high school with left, as did I, to have a chance at a decent life. Not much economic prosperity where in my hometown. That being said, I'm only 3 hours away and I can see my parents on the weekends just about anytime I fee...

Father-in-law took me to the 97 game as a birthday gift. Wife is still pissed she didn't get to go. Additionally a really great man gave us his press box seats as an upgrade for the birthday celebration. He was at the game but had other responsibilities and wouldn't be sitting in his seats. I have t...
