re: Hypothetical: you are offered 200k for a job...what is best city for family of 5? - FCP on 2/15/18 at 7:52 pm
$200K ain't what it used to be. If it were me, I'd be saving as much as possible so that I could retire early. But, if saving isn't your bag, I'd say move somewhere like Baker/Zachary or even Livingston/Ascension. Put kids in public school. Use the money you'd otherwise use for their private tui...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]people don't leave companies they leave people. [/quote]Heard something similar from the president of Chronos (sp?) in a recent interview. He said employees join a company because of what the company can do FOR them. They leave because of what the company (i.e., its management) does TO them. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Good luck in your Lenten journey! - FCP on 2/14/18 at 6:46 am
Don’t really have any vices to give up. I drink like 3x a year—usually on major holidays. I’m damn near vegetarian with my diet these days. Guess I could give up low fat peanut butter, but why? Agnosticism has no Lenten requirements. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]That guvment cheese[/quote]We had some kind of connection to the Department of Agriculture out on the farm, and they’d get us a box or two of that pure, pasteurized shite every now and then.

re: Black Screen on TV - FCP on 2/14/18 at 3:46 am
Could be a blown HDMI port. What content are you feeding to the TV? You can try different HDMI ports, you can try a swap to component or (shudder) VGA inputs. Of course, you could try a different HDMI cable. But, if the problem is replicated across multiple inputs, then it's your TV that's the probl...

re: Dating: How Young Is Too Young? - FCP on 2/14/18 at 3:22 am
Got a family member who married an older guy. I think they have a 15 year difference or so (30 and 45 IIRC). Enough age difference that he already had adult kids from a prior marriage, and she just gave birth to their first. They seem happy. I'm sure it helps that (1) she's attractive and (2) he's l...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Moved from LP to the edge of Bocage back in the late 90s. Churchill's and CC's Coffee were still in the same building, and I could walk there from my place. It was actually a pretty decent little niche in EBR for this country boy. Of course, I got my arse back across the Amite River ASAP once law ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]overblown save the world hype?[/quote]I'll get crucified on here, but it is worth noting that most of the health problems with opioids arise from (1) the acetaminophen which is bonded to most prescription narcotics causing liver toxicity/failure and (2) government constricting access to legal...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (4)

re: What items used to be built well, - FCP on 2/11/18 at 1:50 pm
Electric can openers. My parents had one given to them in the late 60s as a wedding present, and it was still running great when they replaced it in 2005. They’ve been through 4 or 5 since then. I’ve actually switched to a manual can opener myself. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
