Good Morning NOLA!  TGIF!  Friday is here.  Are you ready for the weekend? I am certainly looking forward to it.  It is partly cloudy this morning. The sun will be out shortly and the rest of the day will be full of sunshine.  By this afternoon we will reach a high of eighty.  No rain in the forecast today but our chances increase over the weekend.  By Monday of next week we will see a forty percent chance.  The forecast is showing a thirty percent chance of showers for Saturday and Sunday. It is only suppose to be isolated thunder storms but be prepared. I will have the umbrella at the ready but there is plenty of cover in the Quarter. What’s a little rain after all. So don’t let that keep you from coming out to the French Quarter to see me at the 1850’s House Store.  I will be signing my latest book “If I Were A French Quarter Rat” and also  “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky!”  Whatever you decide to do today, enjoy! See y’all in NOLA!

USA Online Sports Gambling Laws

When entering the world of online sports gambling, a lot of us stop and ask ourselves this question, “Am I doing something illegal?” Well in most of countries, the federal government has laws which indicate if it is legal or not to participate in online sports gambling. These laws are dependent entirely upon the country but most of the countries in the European Union have a clear stance that online gambling is allowed. The United States of American has laws that are more muddled and it can be hard to find a clear answer as to whether gambling is legal. Before actually getting into the laws themselves, let’s first look at who regulates sports betting.

In the US the regulating of online gambling was controlled completely by each state, however at present this is not so anymore. With the introduction of online gambling there has been a misperception of authority. Therefore the question is, “who is in charge of making and enforcing the laws of cyberspace?” Now keep in mind that there was sports’ gambling long before it was made available via the internet so the plan was to simply apply these same laws when online sports gambling was introduced, however this was left open to extensive clarification.

Even though the US government has passed several laws prohibiting online sports gambling, the operators of these online casinos have found a way to work around these laws. What they do is, they go offshore to others countries/states which allow online gambling and provide their services to the US citizens from there. I know what you are probably asking, “is this legal?” well to be honest it probably is not but there are no present laws which prohibit this activity, so it will continue to happen. There have been attempts though to pass bills which consider this type of activity illegal, however they have all failed. Even though there are federal laws on gambling in the US, the government has decided to leave all the authority to the individual states.

So in some states online sports gambling would be legal whereas in others it would be illegal. Also, if it is illegal and you are caught conducting such transactions you will be prosecuted according to what state you break the law in. Some states not only ban online gambling they also ban websites from advertising for online casinos. There are only three states in the US which allow citizens to bet beyond state borders and they are as follows, Nevada, Louisiana and California. Most states view gambling defiance as a petty crime and the majority of the time the operators are usually the main focus as opposed to the gamblers themselves. In order to keep within the US laws majority of the internet sports books and their servers are located offshore where they are untouchable. In closing, the US government is definitely aiming to pass a legislation which would better deal with the regulation of online gambling, but because the matter is so unclear, nothing of substance can be established, there is still hope for the future.

(2) Young Wayne Toups, Plays At “Cowgirls” In The Mid 1980’s

Another step back in time, a nostalgic memory. “Young” Wayne Toups just starting out at a club called “Cowgirls” located in Scott, Louisiana. Although the club is no more, my transcribed VHS of Wayne Toups music (back in the mid 1980’s) still goes on. Of interest to all that love music, to enjoy and for some to reminisce. Keep in mind we did not have the technology that is current of today’s times.

Oak Alley Plantation in Louisiana video 10 INSIDE OAK ALLEY !! HAUNTED!!

Oak Alley Plantation October 2010 quite interesting I think the house is actually haunted..there were deaths in there. I found it very odd they would not let us in the kitchen and we could NOT enter on the 3rd floor at all. They tried saying it was a fire hazard! whatever! there happened to be a festival there that day so it ended up being really fun. I did manage to get some video of inside the plantation although for some reason they said camaras were not allowed. Watch the other video’s and you will be able to see the inside!!!
Video Rating: 0 / 5

Brand New 7

During the opening number (Welcome to Bangkok), the back lights slowly came up as the song progressed. It gave a really cool hazy/shadowy figure feel to the band.

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.

Good Morning NOLA!  Our  high will be in the eighties today.  It is still WINDY outside! I can’t believe just windy it has been.  We are in for a few windy days this week.  The forecast says we are looking at twenty miles an hour or so today.  Watch out for some strong storms today and tonight.  Our neighbors to the southwest got a good dose last night.  You will want to keep the umbrella handy.  We will have a couple of windy days and our rain chance gets higher as the week progresses. Wednesday looks to be a rainy day in the Crescent City.  There is still lots going on in the city as usual.   Jazz Fest is around the corner and the line-up looks awesome as usual.  I will  be at the 1850’s House Store sigining books in a couple of weeks. I will let you know exact dates as I get them. So make plans to come out a get your personalized copies of “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky!” and “IF I Were A French Quarter Rat”.  Whatever you decide to do today, enjoy! See y’all in NOLA!
