Whould you move to Louisiana?

We are a military family about to exit the military due to an injury. SO now we have to figure out where to move. My husband has family in Louisiana & want us to move there. I am a northern girl, so I am a bit hesitant. What are you thoughts of Louisiana? Schools, education, culture, family life. everything things that go into where you live & what helps you grow into the person you are?

I have a child that is going into the 5th grade that is in all the gifted programs & a infant. I just don’t want to make the wrong choice.
if you answer is yes or no, please state why .
I think its northwest LA, Jefferson Davis Parish, near Lake Charles

No, I wouldn’t…

What is the difference between yesterday and tomorrow?

Dateline : New Orleans, Louisiana
August 29, 2005

When the levees break…
Oh the humanity
Insanity
Water Water
Where’s my daughter
About my wife
Another life
Gone
Now swan song
Homes one night
Construction site
Looting Shooting
History culture
Death the vulture
Memories floating by
Grown children cry
So much lost then
Unknown cost when
The levees break

What a difference a day makes

Is today not yesterdays tomorrow?
EP – Indeed it is.

They should of printed this on the front page of the Times-Picayune,
and tattooed on Brownie’s butt…..

***LOUISIANA RESIDENTS*** What is your opinion of the grants for grads program?

I’ve read a lot and did a some research, now I would like to know the opinion of the citizens. The Grants for Grads Program is established in recognition that many Louisiana’s residents relocate from Louisiana upon completion of their college careers due to a perceived lack of economic opportunity. Homeownership reflects a commitment to remain in Louisiana and continue the tradition and culture of the state.

The grants for grads awards any Louisiana resident who has received an associate, baccalaureate, masters/postgraduate degree on or after January 1, 2008 and was:

As a LA resident I have been very aware of the outflow of LA college graduates. I have never heard of this program, but I see the need for it and I will definitely look into it.

History of the Zydeco Rubboard – MOJO & The Bayou Gypsies

MOJO & The Bayou Gypsies tell the story of the Zydeco Rubboard (Frottoir) in every performance. Mister MOJO and his best friend, Tee Don Landry (whose daddy made the first Zydeco Rubboard for Clifton Chenier), documented the history of the first Zydeco Rubboard. Tee Don still makes Zydeco Rubboards in the tradition of his daddy. Two of his rubboards are in The Smithsonian. The Zydeco Rubboard is unique to Southwest Louisiana music, and serves as a global icon for Louisiana Culture. To learn more history, visit www.zydecorubboards.com .

CORRECTION! This was a LIVE performance, and Mister MOJO mis-stated a fact: There are actually a few more instruments invented in America (e.g., steam calliope, monophonic synthesizer, and others). Mister MOJO should have said “the Zydeco Rubboard is one of only a few instruments invented in America”. Apologies to other inventors and their fans.
