re: Women screaming during concerts - Geaux Frogs
I feel like the conversations are rampant at the TX country shows my wife likes to go to. It amazes me how many people just straight up have their back to the stage and are in the middle of a conversation. Then they wait for the cheap "pop" when the guy on stage says the name of the city they ar...

re: Chile... - Geaux Frogs
I experienced my first Earthquake while there...5.4, but it was very deep. It was like standing in a boat while "riding" the wake waves when another boat goes by. I thought it was a pretty cool experience, until I realized why everyone in town was freaking out. We were in a tiny town at the b...

re: Arlington, TX - Geaux Frogs
Do not stay there...I would be curious to see the listing and how they dressed up the pics to convince anyone to stay there! You are right, most of the places around that area are not that nice. There are exceptions, but you are not surrounded by good neighborhoods. If she insists on staying ...

re: Lost Baggage Question - Geaux Frogs
The airline will reimburse for everything you had to purchase. My wife and I flew into Vegas for an awards ceremony that was the same night that we flew in. Her bag didn't make the flight. The airline reimbursed for new dress, shoes, make-up artist (cheaper than replacing every make up componen...

re: Best “opening band” discoveries - Geaux Frogs
Not a true opener in the real sense of the word, but Avatar played a little bit after noon, on a side stage, at a metal festival I was at a few years ago. I had never heard of them, but there stage set up and music had everyone's attention. I have seen them twice since then. They aren't my ...

re: Chile... - Geaux Frogs
Pucon, that I mentioned above, is in the Lake Region. There are amazing little towns all over the place down there. If you are investing the money and time to get down there, I would look to see at least 2 different parts of the country. Villarrica was a an hour and a half flight, and around $1...

re: Chile... - Geaux Frogs
I went about 6 years ago, and I would move there tomorrow if I could convince my wife... Santiago is like most other big cities in the World; there are good parts of town, and not so good parts of town. Keep your eyes open, but for the most part, I felt very comfortable walking around or riding ...

re: Anyone have experience with Canik pistols? - Geaux Frogs
The TP9SFX is a great shooter. Regarded as a solid, economical, entry level competition gun. I tell my brother that I have to make it miss! haha...isn't that always the case! It was a little picky with ammo in the beginning, but once broken in, it eats anything. Canik just released the Can...

re: Anyone attend a concert at the Dos Equis Pavilion in Dallas, TX? - Geaux Frogs
The Lonestar Cabanas are along the back wall of the lawn. You have a private bar/wait staff and restroom. So, if you are there for the party...they may be ok. If you are there for the concert...I think it sucks. ...

re: Roof replacement/ Contractor/Insurance question. - Geaux Frogs
This is how it is done in most cases in TX. Why wouldn't you want it done this way if they agree to work for insurance proceeds to repair/replace everything that you were paid damages for? Just make sure your contract with the roofer spells out exactly what work they are responsible for and make...

re: Could ALDI be coming to Louisiana soon? - Geaux Frogs
You nailed it...you wont get everything you need there, but I would much rather run into Aldi if I need a few ingredients for dinner than Kroger. You can get in and out in hardly any time. The checkers don't bag your groceries, and don't small talk...they ring up you stuff and put it back in a bug...

re: Fort Worth dinner recs - Geaux Frogs
All good suggestions so far...I will also add: Nonna Tata on Magnolia for homestyle italian. This is not a terribly nice place, it only seats about 15 people, but the food was excellent. Walking around Magnolia before/after dinner isn't a bad way to kill some time either. Heim has great BBQ....

re: Anyone have experience tearing out glued wood floors? - Geaux Frogs
My insured loss is only about 40% of my wood floors. I want to keep the wood floors in my house consistent, regardless of if they are in "line of sight" or through a doorway, so we are having to come out of pocket for a floor renovation that we were not expecting. It is ridiculously expensive. $2...

re: Anyone have experience tearing out glued wood floors? - Geaux Frogs
Kind of the mixed bag of responses I expected... It isn't so tough that you "can't" do it, but do you really want to? Haha I will have to look into renting the ride on machines and see how much that will cost....

Anyone have experience tearing out glued wood floors? - Geaux Frogs
We are having to replacing our flooring due to some flooding. The charges for pulling up the wood flooring that is glued to the foundation is close to the costs of installation of the new stuff. Is it worth the money? I have watched some YouTube videos, and it isn't "hard", just messy and tedio...

re: Seether in Lake Charles 7/26 - Geaux Frogs
I saw Seether at the Dallas HOB a few years ago. I am not particularly a Seether fan, but I try to go to any type of rock show at HOB. The place was sold out...I was really surprised. The music room host told me that every seat, even the seats that they typically hold for the band's guest were ...

re: Anyone here have airbnb rentals? - Geaux Frogs
You have to have someone to field calls if the remote control batteries are dead, the A/C is out, and to schedule lawn maintenance, etc. These management companies offer 24 hour servicing. You can do most of that from 2 hours away, however, they simply walk over and explain how to use the satell...

re: Anyone here have airbnb rentals? - Geaux Frogs
My inlaws have a couple in Fredericksburg. They make enough from those 2 units to pay 80% of the mortgages for those PLUS the home they live in. They live within walking distance to the properties and do all of the management/cleaning themselves. They are retired; this is their new job. This w...

re: Best Penny Stocks / OTC Trading Platforms - Geaux Frogs
Very true! Ha I meant, I do not think I will be driving a Lamborghini due to my ability to pick out the diamond in the rough. I have my 8-5 day job and my retirement accounts where I want them. I am just looking for another toy. I dabble in FOREX the same way. I think of it as the same as...
