Any camping activities u can think of?

I need three more activities for a trip down the Mississippi river to the gulf
i have fourteen stops and each stop has to have a different activity
i already have
-fishing
-star gazing
-bird watching
-nature hunt
-learning about survival skills
-learning about animals
-a craft day
- a board game day
-swimming
-hike
-sports day
my last three stops are at the top of Louisiana ,where Mississippi cuts into Louisiana,and where Louisiana meets the gulf of Mexico.

geocaching,
"racing" rafts made of things found in nature along the shoreline
biking (check – many places have rentals in touristy destinations/outdoor stores)

Are Alligators still protected species in the US?

Jamie Oliver (famous British chef) is cooking Alligator in Louisiana – are they still protected in other parts of the US?

No, the American Alligator is now in the "least concern" category of animal conservation.

A combined effort by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, state wildlife agencies in the South, and the creation of large, commercial alligator farms saved these unique animals. The Endangered Species Act outlawed alligator hunting, allowing the species to rebound in numbers in many areas where it had been depleted. As the alligator began to make a comeback, states established alligator population monitoring programs and used this information to ensure alligator numbers continued to increase. In 1987, the Fish and Wildlife Service pronounced the American alligator fully recovered and consequently removed the animal from the list of endangered species. The Fish and Wildlife Service still regulates the legal trade in alligator skins and products made from them.

Stay On the Right Side of Online Betting Laws

The laws regarding online betting vary with the country. Online gambling companies are not allowed to operate in the US. Three US states, namely Nevada, Louisiana, and California have explicitly written laws against online gambling. It is not uncommon for employees of online betting companies from other countries to run foul of the law when they travel to the US. The UK, on the other hand, has made a move toward allowing gambling to grow in a regulated environment. Gambling companies can now legally operate from within the UK. This step is regarded by many as one in the right direction, which allows the population to harness the power of the Internet for pleasure and profit.

For long have supporters of the online gaming industry rued the discriminatory laws stacked against online betting and a completely different set of laws for offline betting. Industry watchers feel that it is only a matter of time before the law in America takes a similar position as that of the UK and allows online bets to be accepted in the country. Till now, it has been places like Gibraltar and Antigua that have allowed online betting to operate from their shores and they have reaped benefits. These countries have had a head start in the management and regulation of online betting companies. Antigua places a lot of emphasis on thorough background checks before issuing licenses, not only that even if a licensed betting company issues sublicenses, it can only do so after a background check by the FBI and the Interpol. For all the assurances of an online betting site, players have little concrete guarantee that the game is being run honestly. To address player concerns, some countries have also set up an anti-fraud cell that looks into cases of duping by online betting sites. Since, state and federal laws in many countries are in a state of flux regarding online gaming, it is crucial that the efforts of countries like Antigua and Grenada be duplicated for winning customer confidence.

When talking of online betting laws, it is important to realize that you need to consider not just the laws of the country from which the website operates but also the country where the hosting servers reside and the laws of the countries from which the website gets traffic; in short we are talking about online betting laws from around the world. At present most nations do not have a clearly-defined law structure for online gambling; the UK for example, allows online betting companies to operate but taxes them heavily while the bettors are not taxed for the amount they wager. This bias is causing many well-known online gambling companies to set up operations in other parts of the world, which is a direct loss in revenue for the UK government. In fact, the lure of profits from online gaming is so strong that governments in countries such as Finland and the Principality of Liechtenstein have their own betting sites.

 Good Morning NOLA!  It’s a mild and muggy day today.  We have a sixty percent chance of scattered showers today with the bulk of it coming later this evening.  Tomorrow is looking like eighty percent chance of rain, so I’m not too sure I’m up for parade watching but you guys go right ahead.  After the rain passes through we will have some cooler temps.  Sunday night’s low is back in the forties.  We will have some clear to partly cloudy skies with highs in the sixities to take us though Mardi Gras day though.  Sounds pretty close to perfect for some bead catching weather.  I will be pretending to “Mardi Gras” on Sunday on the set of the new Nicholas Cage movie being shot here in town.  It should be a lot of fun.  I am also looking forward to a couple of days on the new season of Memphis Beat at the end of next week.  Mark your claendars for a week from Saturday.  I will be signing my new book “If I Were A French Quarter Rat” on Jackson Square at the 1850′s House store.  I hope to see you there.  Have a great weekend. See you in NOLA!

Good Morning NOLA!  We have showers and wind in the forecast for greater New Orleans area.  So, what to do, what to do?  We know there is no end to the possibilities in this great place.  I do have a few suggestions to get you through the day.  Today may be a good day to plan indoor activities.  Enjoy some music at the French Quarter Hotels and clubs. Linger over brunch at one of the many New Orleans restaurants and eateries.  Make use of that amazing hotel room or your own comfy abode and snuggle in with a good book and a steaming cup of coffee. Football games on the big screen are always an option, even though our beloved New Orleans Saints are out of the running. If you do venture outside rain boots and a jacket will be a good idea.  The Aquarium or the Children’s Museum are great choices for the kiddos.  A word to the wise,  keep an umbrella handy while you enjoy The Big Easy. Be sure to check back tomorrow for your New Orleans Weather 10 day forecast.  See you in NOLA!
