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 Culinary Trails – Seafood Sensations

Bordered by Texas to the west and Cajun Country to the east, southwestern Louisiana has developed its own brand of cooking. Rustic, spicy, and stick-to-your-ribs might best describe the food of this marshland. Dominating menus are fried and boiled seafood, pork stew, catfish courtbouillon, rice dressing, shrimp and okra gumbo, jambalaya, wild game, and lots and lots of rice. This trail zigzags across the southwestern corner of the state, sometimes known as the Louisiana Outback, stopping at a variety of crawfish houses, oyster bars, cafes, and grocery stores.

Good Morning NOLA!  It’s finally Friday but not the pretty day we have been used to. Spring has always been my favorite time to be in the Quarter. The high will be eighty-one degrees today.  But tonights low will only drop into the seventies. The forecast is showing alot of rain and some strong storms for today and tonight.  It never hurts to keep the umbrella handy. the sun will be back tomorrow and stay with us until probably mid-week.  There is still lots going on in the city as usual.  Jazz Fest is just around the corner so be planning your attack.  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!

Spend It All (1971)

The Cajuns of Southwest Louisiana still retain the language, camaraderie and old world spirit of their French-speaking Acadian ancestors. Les Blank’s (www.lesblank.com) film captures the intense bravado and vitality of their lives, in scenes such as quarter horse racing, coffee roasting, accordion building, cooking and eating supper along with the intoxicating music of the Balfa Brothers, Marc Savoy, Nathan Abshire and others.

Good Morning NOLA! Happy Valentine’s Day! Along with all the love and hearts floating on the air today is some warmer temps and sunshine.  Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous and I have a feeling today is just more of the same. Our high today is back in the sixities for the second day in a row.  The forecast says partly cloudy but it looks pretty clear to me.  There is only a ten percent chance for rain so I don’t think we will be seeing any.  The low for tonight is in the upper forties. This seems to be the trend for the next several days and then the daytime highs will be in the seventies.  You can put up the boots and jackets and pull out the t-shirts and flip-flops for a bit.  I don’t think spring is here yet but enjoy this reprieve will we can.  I guess a pedicure is in order.  What a great Valentine’s treat!  See you in NOLA!

It feels like 102 out there.  Here in NOLA we are seeing record temps.  If you are outside you are appreciatiative of any shred of breeze. Man is it hot! According to the weather report for today it is partly cloudy with temperatures steady or falling to near 85F. Winds SSE at 5 to 10 mph  Looks like another hot dry day. See you in NOLA!
