re: Apple Watch alarm/ timer question - tigers win2
Thanks for both of the responses. Yeah, I found a watch, Vibralite8 on Amazon, that will do what I need for $55. Not a dress watch by any means, but for the price i though it was worth a try. Someone has suggested that the app "Periodic Timer" will allow an Apple Watch to do what I need. Goin...

Apple Watch alarm/ timer question - tigers win2
I would think the Apple Watch could accomplish what I need, but to be sure I thought you guys could answer for sure. After googling, it looks like I may need an app. I need a preofssional looking(dress) watch that will provided a vibrate alert(no sound at all) at an adjustable and reoccurring...

re: Gary Chambers is holding the first Black Ball... - tigers win2
[quote]Of course it would be at the East Baton Rouge Council on Aging[/quote] Seems like an odd move for a taxpayer funded facility to be the location for the event. Was there no "black owned" small business facility in north Baton Rouge that could have been the venue?? Not shocked though. ...

re: TB Cheap Airfare of the Week: Spring Fares on Sale, Chicago $89, Vegas $116, Raleigh $141 - tigers win2
BTR to KEF via Dallas on American seems very easy. $975 seemed like a fair deal to me. I've got gear that I can't risk getting lost with multiple stops so I think it's the safest and easiest bet. Will leave BTR around August 22-23. And will return around September 5-6th. Trying to decide on firm...

re: Traveling to Iceland in late Feb - tigers win2
I've started watching flights from BTR to KEF in Iceland for a late August early September trip. Seeing $975 on American Airlines. That seems like a logical price point, but I've never checked it before. Should I wait or is that about what it will cost?...

re: How is it that loving married couples end up hating each other so often? - tigers win2
Because when just dating , you break up when it's no longer fun. Not that much of an investment into it. With marriage there is a greater emotional and legal commitment. People stay longer to try to make it work for many reasons ( kids, house, social pressures etc). So by the time one ends it, ...

re: Traveling to Iceland in late Feb - tigers win2
Did you rent a car or use the bus system to get around? I'll be going for 12-14 days in August. Will likely land at KEF and then take an Air Iceland flight from the domestic airport up to Akureyri. It's about a 45 minute flight and the cost is the same as a one way car rental. I'll be in...
