 Good Morning NOLA!  Here comes the sun!   But don’t let it fool you, the high for today is only 43.  Brrrr!  Tomorrow won’t get us out of the forties either with lows below freezing tonight and tomorrow.  Take the necessary precautions.  remember the three “P’s” .Be sure to protect plants, pets, and pipes! Bundle up if you are heading out doors.  There are people to see, places to go and things to do.  For you home bodies planning on stayng in, go ahead and get that soup or big pot of gumbo going.  You will be glad to have when the temperature starts dropping tonight. While you are stirring the pot at least open the blinds at let some of that beautiiful sunshine in. Soak it up while we have it.  My plan is to start that soup, but I’m not staying in today.  The beginning of next week brings showers and scattered thunderstorms, but the upside is it also brings a little bit warmer temps our way.   Have a great day!  I’ll see you in NOLA!

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.

Has anyone ever heard of the Canary Island descendants called Los Isleños in Louisiana?

I’m a Canary Island descendant of Louisiana and I was just curious if anyone ever heard of us or our culture. Dime la verdad. ~ Viva Los Isleños en Luisiana!

You have a fascinating heritage and culture. The islenos of St. Bernard Parrish can trace their roots in Louisiana back to the original Spaniards who came to Louisiana and before that, Tenerife and the Canary Islands. The Canary Islands were the first place colonized by the Spanish Empire in the 1300s.

Unfortunately, many families were affected by Hurricane Katrina,
as well as your Los Islenos of the Canary Islands Museum.

I thought you and others might like this website.

 Good Morning NOLA!  Are you ready for another beautiful day?  I know I am.  Yesterday was clear and still a little on the cool side but a great day all the same.  The OCH market was great.  If you missed this one mark your calendar for next month’s on March 12th.  High today is suppose to hit the sixities but still cool right now.  Bring the jacket or sweater and be prepared to carry it around later.  It looks like it will be more of the same for the rest of the week.  Only a very slight chance of rain at the end of the week and a slight warming as far as the daily highs as we move into the week.  My plan is to get out and “rat” around the Quarter some.  I hope you get out and enjoy this weather also.  Ther e is plenty to do with all the Mardi Gras festivities and other thing going on around the Crescent City.  Some people will be running around ‘literally” in the Mardi Gras Marathon going on today.  See you in NOLA!

What’s a Crawdad and do I want to eat it?

My friend & I share a love for sports and food. He recently came down from Louisiana with a taste for crayfish and he went to our local fish market and placed an order for 150 frozen Crawdads. I was filled in as to what they are and I am freaked. Do they taste good? Aren’t the waters in Louisina dirty? Should I stop being such a child and just enjoy the nice dinner that my friend worked his butt off to make for me (and others)? I guess I’m just really "weirded" out and just need a little bit of a push. Please leave any comments bad or good that you have about the "Crawdad".
Thank You.

Kinda like a cross between shrimp and lobster.

They are really good if you like the seafood, and you should not worry about "dirty water" because most of them are farmed in rice fields. When they harvest the rice, they drain the fields and harvest the crayfish.

The frozen ones are not going to be as good as the live ones. The live ones are like having a mini-lobster boil.

Anyway, just give it a try. Most people only eat the tails. Some people suck on the head to get the full experience.

Good Luck.
