If I travel back and forth between 2 states do I need to change my driver license to that state every time?
I would hate to do that. I live in California but I’m temporarily in Louisiana to work with my aunt. I want to know if that would affect me trying to get an apartment in Louisiana or anything like that. But I do travel back and forth & would hate to have to change my license every time.
That is a tough situation. You are supposed to get a Louisiana license within 30 days of moving there. if you do not, and get stopped for any reason, you would have a problem. California is worse…they say you must get a CA license within 10 days of moving there! I don’t see any way around this. then there is the issue of your car insurance. They need to know too.
Edit: Just saw other answer and she has a good thought. If you maintain a home in CA all the time, then you are a CA resident. But, i was concerned that Louisiana would consider you a resident since you spoke of getting an apartment there. Once you do that, they may consider you a resident.
The french culture has an impact on different parts of North America, such as the province of Quebec…?
The french culture has an impact on different parts of North America, such as the province of Quebec and the state of Louisiana. I need help of how to explain this. Highly appreciated
I know that in Quebec they got a law passed to preserve the French Language in 1997. In Quebec they have fought to keep their french identity ever since 1608.
I live in MS right now..and I’ve always said I’m not staying here. Well I’m 21 and I’m ready to leave. I want to stay in the south though. I really like Louisiana and it seems like a cool place .. full of life and culture.
Louisiana is a great place to live, where are you looking at> Baton Rouge (where i live now) it a very nice place and Lafeyette is growing into the state’s best place to live, New Orleans (where i was born and raised) is great too don’t believe what other people say, i’m there almost every weekend, its not the same but its not a war zone either. it really depends on what u wanna do out here, there is a big need in the Medical field, the wanted ads section has almost a full page of medical jobs. you can probaly fidn a job in any field you want, or if you just wana party, whatever, you will find that here too, the culture is amazing. i would recommend coming and visiting for like a weekend whatever city or town you plan to move to, get a feel for the place.
Our governor and "representatives" continually utter the same tired rhetoric about our "unique culture" and "our spirit" when confronted with questions about Louisiana’s status as a "bottom-of-the-list" state. The abysmal condition of Louisiana (crime, poverty, healthcare, education, quality of life, etc.) isn’t going to be remedied because of our "joie de vie" or our mardi gras parades.
So quit complaining and collecting evidence and do something to help.
Or when was the last time a pro sports team from Louisiana won a title of any kind?
That’s easy >Never on both……………lol!!

~ There have been six separate national flags to fly over the state of Texas over the last 500 years. Texas was governed by Spain, France, Mexico, The Confederate States, The Republic of Texas, and of course, the United States of America. This fact is where the Six Flags theme parks got their name, being that the first of the chain was located in Texas.
~ Texas has more inland water than any other state in the continental US. Of these more than 6700 reservoirs, there is only one natural lake in the entire state of Texas. Caddo Lake, which is located on the Louisiana border, is the only water source that is considered a natural lake. All other “lakes” within Texas’ borders are either manmade or simply a part of a river.
~ Texas became part of the United States as a part of the treaty that ended the Mexican-American war in 1848. Texas gained its independence from Mexico in 1836, however the US Congress denied its annexation in 1844 because of the threat of war with Mexico. It was only after the signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo that the annexation of Texas was resolved between the two countries.
~ There have been 7 cities that served as the capital of Texas, though some only briefly. From 1836 through 1839, Columbia, Galveston, Velasco, Washington-on-the-Brazos, Harrisburg, and Houston all served as capital for a short amount of time. In 1839, Austin was named the new capital of the state and it remains there today.
~ Texas has more professional sports teams than any other US state, including: 2 National Football League teams, 2 Major League Baseball teams, 3 National Basketball Association teams, a Major League soccer team. an American Football League team, a Women’s National Basketball Association team and a National Hockey League team.
~ The largest city in Texas is Houston, with just under 2 million residents as of the 2000 census. There are several towns that make the claim of being the smallest in Texas, with a total of 26 incorporated towns and census-designated places claiming a population of less than 100 residents.
~ The state capital building in Austin was constructed in 1888 from Sunset Red granite, on a foundation of limestone. It stands 15 feet taller than the Capitol building in Washington, DC and has more square footage than any other state capital building in the United States.
