re: Comite River Diversion Canal Project - robchand58
If I remember the initial buildup to that project, it was to lower flood levels at DS by 18 inches just by diverting that water from the Comite. Doesn't sound like much - and would not have prevented the last catastrophe - but every little bit helps....

re: Prayers for Frmr First Lady Barbara Bush - robchand58
One other encounter. I was flying back from California, and she was on the flight. She was in first class, but made a pass back through the cattle car and shook hands and spoke to all the cattle.. Classy, gracious lady....

re: Prayers for Frmr First Lady Barbara Bush - robchand58
When I was working for a local TV station, Barbara Bush came through campaigning for her husband. We had an interview set up at a house in Broadmoor. It looked like the lady of the house had been cleaning it for years. Little plants in cup-and-saucers placed on the floor near the windows in...

re: Why do all these 4K HDR tvs and streaming boxes not support HEVC/H.265 - robchand58
8K is just around the corner. Is 8k really necessary for home TV use? Saw 8k at NAB two years ago. 8 foot screen, with a herd of Japanese dancers in filmy gowns doing their thing on the screen. As each one would spin, you could see every fiber of the gown during the spin. Absolutely mi...

Skype On Big Screen Samsung - robchand58
Want to hang a webcam above my 65" Samsung in the living room, and use that as a Skype communicator. I want a neat, tidy solution, which SEEMS to be a third party appliance like an "Android Box" that does the work and hands off to the TV via HDMI. Samsung-at least-does not have the Skype app bundl...

re: Funeral Food...What Do You Take? - robchand58
My wife has a recipe for Meat Pie a la Lu. Don't know who Lu was, but son.. This is a full sized pie that can be frozen (unbaked) and just dropped off. Bereaved folks never fail to call back for the recipe. [b]MEAT PIE A LA LU[/b] 1 lb ground meat 1 medium onion 1 clove garlic, minced 1...

re: Gulf Shores/Orange Beach Eats - robchand58
Bills By The Beach in Gulf Shores. ALMOST beachfront, but a good view from the outdoor seating area. Had the Bacon and Crab Cheesecake for appetizer (Great!). I had the Seafood Pot Pie (highly recommended) and wife said the Blackened Shrimp was likely done by a Cajun who knows how to cook shrimp....

re: TV/ Internet options in Denham Springs - robchand58
ATT has run a ton of fiber around Amite Church Road, and LA 1019 near Watson. And now Cox is mirroring that, as Cox glass is going in the ground now in that same area. As said, it depends on EXACTLY where your house is. Some southern areas have EATEL. Eastern areas have Charter....

re: Wiring my house(internet) - robchand58
Drop one connection in the attic (high up wifi access point).. Perhaps corners of the house, the patio and doorways for security cameras. Wherever you THINK you might hang a TV or site a computer, put two plugs. Its a meticulous process to put the ends on, but you only have to do it once....

re: ATT and now Cox in one neighborhood - robchand58
If I had never seen the gigabit upload speed, the WiFi would be OK. Luckily, I wired the house with Cat 5E to every location where a computer or TV would be. All hitting a 1 Gig router in a closet. The Wifi is just for visitors, mobiles, etc. Everything else is on the LAN. Once you put your c...

re: What was the best one liners your high school coaches used? - robchand58
In one of my Tiger Band years, Bear Bryant was leaning against the goalpost at Tiger Stadium, his classic pose. Photographers were buzzing around as our Tiger mascot approaches The Bear, paw extended. Bear shakes his paw as our boy says "Coach, its an honor to meet you. We're going to kick your a...

ATT and now Cox in one neighborhood - robchand58
Built a house in a brand new subdivision. ATT laid fiber, got it, love it. Now, Cox is putting something in the ground alongside the ATT glass. Not used to having a choice like this. If you live where have two internet providers available to you now: does this keep prices down? Any pros/cons ...

re: Anyone else get annoyed that there are sign language people at emergency pressers? - robchand58
A couple of points here. The FCC is REALLY sensitive to matters involving the deaf, and broadcasters are tightly held to a fine line on serving that part of the audience. So including an interpreter for 'life and death events' has become SOP. Closed captioning of live events is REALLY expensi...
