Does anybody know any great information on the Cajun and Creole Cultures of New Orleans, Louisiana?

I’m doing a project on the Cajun and Creole Cultures of New Orleans. I know that a lot of people live in New Orleans and may be apart of these cultures. If you know any great information or can explain some stuff to me, I would love to know more! Thank-you. (:

Note that the Acadians (Cajuns) settled in south central Louisiana (around Lafayette) and not in New Orleans.

Does anyone have a lifan 200 registered in Louisiana??

I want a lifan 200 dual sport bike and live in Louisiana does anyone know what states they are legal in….

they should be but check your local laws before purchasing.

American Lifan does not allow Internet sales nor do we have any dealers in the state of California. There are a few companies selling the Lifan brand illegally on the Internet. These fraudulent companies do not have parts inventory nor do they have the correct paperwork to get vehicles registered in any state legally. American Lifan products can only be purchased from an authorized American Lifan Dealer. To be assured that you are getting American Lifan quality and service please call or email us today

where is it cheaper to travel (Car,gas,hotel,food) – Texas,DC, Boston, Alaska, Louisiana, Florida?

My bros are looking to take a road truip and trying to see history stuff and stieand things but don’t have many bens. any ideas where to go

Since my home land was not on the list, Mexico, and neither was our territory of California, I guess Texas and Florida. However, if you are a minority, do not go to Texas. They are a lot of hatred brewing there and differently do not go up to Alaska. Alaska is very expensive and it is as white as snow.

Interested in starting an herb garden in SE Louisiana. Any suggestions?

I would like to start growing an Italian herb garden in my backyard. (Basil, oregeno, parsley, arugula, etc.) How do I decide which area to plant? Is is best to do this by container gardening or plant directly into the ground. I’ve NEVER done any gardening – just really like to cook with Italian seasonings.

Additionally, I would like to grow tomatoes. Any recomendations on delicious varieties?

All herbs prefer full sun. They do better in the ground than in containers. Oregano is a perennial, basil, parsley, arugula are annuals – save their seeds for next year. Jiffy makes great Mini greenhouses (4" x 10") that sit nicely in window sills – preferably south facing – for starting seeds. http://lawn-and-garden.hardwarestore.com/77-494-trays-and-peat-pots/jiffy-peat-pot-strips-631448.aspx see " Jiffy-7"

Super Fantastic tomatoes are exactly that. http://www.reimerseeds.com/super-fantastic-tomato.aspx

I lived in Lafayette for many years. You should be able to grow just about anything. Have fun!

Are there any good music colleges near or in Louisiana?

I’m trying to find colleges for majors in music but I’m not sure what I want to be yet. Thanks!

For good music, your best bet is New Orleans: The center for Jazz, where one can venture down to the French Quarter and have a plethora of places to go and listen to it live (speaking with lots of personal experience).

New Orleans has some great universities: Tulane, UNO, Loyola, and Xavier. All of them are great, and they all seem to have great programs; however, I suggest Tulane: Tulane is highly ranked, in terms of academics and student happiness (for the latter, they are in the top 10). Don’t get me wrong, all of them are great, but Tulane has the best overall reputation. In terms of music, I don’t know, but I know you’ll be happy there, at the very least.
