re: Do Any Of You Baws Fast? - Htown Tiger
[quote]I have recently started intermittent fasting and found it to be very beneficial with my weight loss journey. Routine has been water and black coffee in the morning with a lunch hour workout from around noon- 1:00pm. Protein shake with MCT oil after workout and then a low carb/keto friendly di...

re: Anyone know what this is - tech mystery box item - Htown Tiger
Good point about the size. It’s about the size of an iPhone 6. Thought it was something Iphone related, but couldn’t figure out what. ETA: that could be it. It definitely isn’t as big as that one, but would fit an iphone perfectly. Thanks. :cheers:...

Anyone know what this is - tech mystery box item - Htown Tiger
Randomly bought one of those tech surprise boxes and this came in. But have no clue what it is. It’s pretty flat, and gel-ish. [link=(https://ibb.co/dWxGFT)]LINK[/link]...

re: Job inquiry - Htown Tiger
Who approached you and how? I'm going to assume HR. There's nothing wrong with inquiring about the compensation range for the position with the HR person ahead of even agreeing to an initial interview. Don't be afraid to ask. Good luck....

re: LSU Houston Alumni Golf Tournament 6/9 - Htown Tiger
[quote]Anyone know the format? 4-person scramble? It doesn't say on the registration page.[/quote] Yep, its a 4 man scramble. I've heard the tournament just has some nice sponsorship, so plenty of food and drinks to go around. Mix that with a round of golf (albeit, a hot round), and I cant see it N...

re: Chris Paul is out for Game 6 - Htown Tiger
Time for Eric Gordon to shine. He has stepped it up the last few games just as much as CP3 has. If he is on and continues to be as aggressive as he's been, I still give Houston a shot in Game 6. ...

re: I really like Bud Light Orange - Htown Tiger
I’m the opposite. I actually don’t mind Bud Light Lime, but found Bud Light Orange not that great. Tastes more like a wine cooler than a beer. ...

re: Which is worse: sugar/sweets or beer? - Htown Tiger
Thanks for the responses all. I agree, unless I go full bore with this thing, chances are I'll never really get to that point of actually having some abs to show. It's still a goal, and I'll still continue to hit the gym and eat well (for the most part), but I dont have any plans to give up ALL ...

re: Which is worse: sugar/sweets or beer? - Htown Tiger
Yeah, not sure how you got that from my post. I go to the gym 5 days a week for an hour, did whole30, and basically maintain the whole30 M-TH during the week. I would say I work at it pretty good. I’m just asking if I can pick a cheat, which is better in the long run. ...

Which is worse: sugar/sweets or beer? - Htown Tiger
I’d like to shed the little bit of belly fat I have (I’m rather thin and skinny, but have a slight beer belly) and am wondering which of the two is worse. Look, I have vices, and I know giving up everything I enjoy just ain’t gonna happen. I have a huge sweet tooth and I love beer (though I contain ...

re: What can I get into or do this year to reduce my tax burden? - Htown Tiger
[quote]AUtigerNOLA[/quote] Thanks! :cheers: ETA: so after doing a bit more reading on this, if I understand it correctly, I can open an IRA for my wife and contribute up to $5500, however because of income limits, that $5500 actually isn’t tax deductible? Is that what I’m reading?...

re: What can I get into or do this year to reduce my tax burden? - Htown Tiger
I'm in a similar boat as the OP. I max out 401k, HSA, and Roth. But I have a question about traditional IRA: If my wife is a stay at home mother (and thus doesnt work), can I open a traditional IRA in her name and contribute money to that pre-tax? 2nd question: She is thinking of going back to wo...

Looking for 1 more manager - Fantasy Baseball - Keeper League - FREE - Htown Tiger
Fairly standard Roto. 10 team league on Yahoo. You can keep 8 keepers and have to give up the draft pick 1 round ahead of where he was drafted last year (e.g. if drafted last year in the 10th, you will give up the 9th round pick this year, 8th next year, and so on). It's a free league, but pretty...

re: Ian Happ or Dee Gordon - Keeper League - Htown Tiger
Thanks for the responses. Looks like Gordon is the current favorite. I have thought about:[quote]Keep Gordon, re-draft Happ[/quote] and will look to do this, but obviously Happ's draft spot will be much higher this year and so his keeper eligibility will never be as favorable as it is now. But...

Ian Happ or Dee Gordon - Keeper League - Htown Tiger
Have 1 spot left for a keeper. I'd give up a late draft pick for either one. Standard roto league. I love Gordon's speed, but Happ is a great young prospect with a ton of potential. Interested to hear what others would do in this situation....
