Louisiana Travel

Sight seeing throughout travel. Is there a web site that can help?

I am traveling from Louisiana to Oregon and want to know of any good places to stop for sight seeing on the way.
I am going by the mapquest.com

http://www.tripadvisor.com/ is a great site. I have personally contributed quite a bit especially for Oregon, where I live. I could tell you a lot about what to do in Oregon/Washingon, but it sounds like that is your destination so you might already have plans here. SO, I would use Trip Advisor to look at other places along the way. If I were you, I would definitely stop in Denver/Boulder CO and ESPECIALLY Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. I went to school in Boulder and it is absolutely beautiful. Also, Branson Missouri is fun in a strange way if you could stop there. There is a RIpley’s Believe It Or Not Museum that is great there as well as all the other typical Branson stuff.

Acme Oyster House

During the Lenten season abstinence from meat on Fridays is obligatory for all us “good Catholics” in Louisiana and elsewhere. Salt and freshwater species of fish, amphibians, reptiles and shellfish are permitted. So darn the luck, as Paw-Paw Benoit would say. What do we in the Bayou State during Lent? We eat even more seafood! If you are down in New Orleans during Lent (actually anytime of the year) and you are looking for seafood you have just hit the jackpot.

Some of the best seafood I have ever eaten was served up right here in the Crescent City. The problem is choosing at which wonderful eatery to pull up a chair or a stool. Fans consistently rank Acme’s oysters, seafood and atmosphere among the best in New Orleans and the country and they get my vote, too. Acme Oyster House has been around since1910. Louie Armstrong had not even started his first band and the Acme Café was opened on Royal Street in the French Quarter. Acme has long been a staple in the Big Easy restaurant pantry chock a block full of amazing cuisine. Because a horrible fire in 1924 caused the collapse of the three-story Acme Saloon building, the Café was re-opened as Acme Oyster House around the corner at 724 Iberville in the world famous French Quarter, just off of Bourbon Street.

In addition to the French Quarter location, Acme Oyster Houses are open in Covington, Metairie, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and in Sandestin on the Florida panhandle. Acme shucked well over 3.6 million fresh oysters in 2008. That’s almost 10,000 oysters a day and doesn’t even include the fried ones. Its neon sign is a beacon guiding the hungry by the droves. Locals and tourists a-like line up for some of the best New Orleans style seafood around and is a testament to this place in a city renowned for its food. Don’t let the line deter you it moves really fast! I suggest you order an Abita from the bar and hang tight. Your seat at a checkered tablecloth covered table is coming right up.

World famous for their ice cold oysters on the half shell, Acme has out done themselves with their version of char-grilled oysters. Grilled in the shell with garlic, butter and a sprinkling of parmesan cheese this is a treat for even the most oyster opposed of us. Trust me; I have brought many an anti-oyster visitor over from the dark side by offering this sizzling delicacy on a piece of New Orleans French bread. Just a side note, when the oyster is gone, dip your bread in the empty shell to get every drop of the buttery ambrosia left in the bottom! Cést Bon, Cher!

If the oysters won’t tempt you then check out Acme’s impressive menu. The fried catfish platter and the corn and crab soup may be just the thing for a Lenten supper. Of course, there is always hot seafood gumbo to chase away the chill of a cool day. No matter what you order you can’t go wrong. Stand in line at Acme. I promise, they aren’t going anywhere and it is well worth the wait!

What are some majors for people who love to travel?

I’m currently a Finance major with a foreign language minor.. and I love to travel..

There is another school with an International Trade & Finance major here in Louisiana, but I don’t know what to do.. Help?

You don’t necessarily have to major in anything "international" to obtain a job that requires travelling. There are many international companies that hire people with all different majors. My husband works for a logistics company and they are always looking for people to work overseas.

Border Collie puppies available this March or June in around northwest Florida or north Louisiana?

I want a border collie but I’m waiting until the summer so that I will have time to spend with it and begin training and stuff without school getting in the way. Does anyone know if there will be puppies available at that time? I live 12 miles from destin florida and I travel to Louisiana in the summer with my parents so even from there would be good.

Below is a link to AKC Border Collie breeders. Just type in your zip code and select a radius.

AKC breeders usually sell "pet quality" puppies on spay/neuter contracts. Some AKC breeders charge over $1,000 for a "pet quality" specimen, which I think is a total ripoff, even if the litter does have champion bloodlines.

If you’re planning on spaying or neutering your new puppy, why not try adopting? Shelter dogs are generally up to date with shots and have already been spayed/neutered (but some shelters jump the gun and fix too young, so be careful).

What is the definition of Creoles, Mulattos, mixed Race People: Mixed Race and Mulatto Women of Beauty

At the Congress of Angostura in 1819, liberator Simon Bolivar was elected president of Venezuela and planned a strategy that would free the Americas of European domination.

He also found it necessary to clarify America’s racial heritage: “”It is impossible to say to which human family we belong.

The larger part of the Native population has disappeared, Europeans have mixed with the Indians and the Negroes, and Negroes have mixed with the Indians.

We were all born of one mother America, though our fathers had different origins, and we all have differently colored skins. This dissimilarity is of the greatest significance.”

   The 1920s estimate that a third of African Americans have Indian blood requires new research. Today just about every African-American family tree has an Indian branch.

The number of Afro-Americans with an Indian ancestor was once estimated at about one third of the total. In Latin America the percentage is much higher.

This means that an important page in history has been missing. Three great races – red, white, and black – built the Americas together. Their contributions and their interrelationships have filled libraries with scholarly studies, history texts, and novels.
