re: What’s up with Nola.com being behind a pay wall now? - LSUredleg
So since I’ve been overseas I have kept up with Northeast Louisiana high school sports through KNOE.com; there might be alternatives through the television websites for you down there. For conservative political issues the Hayride covers the legislature pretty well. Dandydon used to post high school...

re: Oktoberfest Trip-any additional cities to see? - LSUredleg
Volksfest in Stuttgart is second only to Munich in size and it’s 3 hours by train from there to Paris. Salzburg is also a cool town but it’s not known for any nightlife scene, plus it’s in the opposite direction. Bertchesgarten, Neuschweinstein, Linderhof, etc are cool destinations but you’d need to...

re: Muslim refugees starting to assimilate in Germany - contrary to conservative beliefs - LSUredleg
Nope- I’m living over here and have observed first-hand that is not the case. Most recent example I’ve seen is the immigrant men roaming around the Weinachmarkts (Stuttgart, Tübingen, Ulm) grabbing Gluhwein cups (€2 deposit at any stand) from unsuspecting people who set them down at the drink statio...

[quote]If you happen to find yourself at the Regina Trench Cemetery,[/quote] That’s still a bit of a hike north and west of here. We are mainly sticking to the 1st Army’s line of advance for the Meuse-Argonne Offensive. After today’s Armistice event we visited Vauquois Hill, near the big victory ...

re: This is really cool - Veteran's Day - LSUredleg
Nice! Just attended the centennial of the Armistice at the Meuse-Argonne cemetery in France. Did a walk of the SGT York trail, the “Lost Battalion” pocket, and Vauquois Hill where 4,000 men are still buried under the moonscape. I have to say, the French people who come to these places (more than you...

re: WWI and Tuchman's "The Guns of August" - read the opening paragraph - LSUredleg
Great read. Just finished Storm of Steel by Ernst Junger (German first hand account of war on the Somme, Flanders, etc.) and got a sense that both sides lived in horror of the daily human and material costs of that war. Sad these leaders (i.e. cousins) couldn’t figure out how to avoid global conflic...

re: Eric London Caldwell Parish - LSUredleg
Yeah Potts was a beast. I was thinking more along the similarity that this kid is also flying under the radar of bigger schools. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the season plays out and what numbers he's able to put up. ...

re: Can I sell expiring airline credits/vouchers? - LSUredleg
You can donate them to the Fisher House; if you're unfamiliar with the foundation look them up. They do great things for the families of our Service Members who are wounded in combat. http://www.fisherhouse.org/programs/hero-miles/...

re: Best irons for mid-handicap? - LSUredleg
Mizuno MP-64s. I'm playing at +7 right now and I can hit them well whether I am playing often or not. I agree with the previous poster who recommended you get fitted. If I'm not mistaken these are the same type Adam Scott was using when he first started out (and before his titleist endorsement)....

re: Italy travel advice - LSUredleg
Florence is worth it (recommend Attica Trattoria and a bistecca alla fiorentina while there), Siena (several agriturismos in area that you can base from), Montalcino, Montepulciano, and Orvieto (Umbria) are all worth visiting. There are bus tours for local wineries (DOCG) from Siena that you might ...

re: Parking in Washington DC - LSUredleg
I lived in Fairfax near George Mason. You've got options. The orange line terminus is Vienna, near western/northern areas of Fairfax. Franconia-Springfield is the terminus of the blue line; distance wise we lived halfway between but always took the blue line to avoid driving through the Fairfax down...

re: The 75mm Pack Howitzer - LSUredleg
[quote]Would seem fitting for the A&M game[/quote] Since we are also known as "The Ole War Skule" and our school mascot is derived from the fighting prowess of Louisiana troops, I would think the howitzer was appropriate at any game. And it would rustle Aggie jimmies...always a bonus....
