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.

If I open up a crawfish restraunt that serves Louisiana style crawfish $7.99/ lb. Would you be willing to pay?
My restaurant would also serve blue crabs, dungenees crabs, poor boy sandwiches, raw oyster, jambalaya, etcc…. everything Louisiana style. You will get a choice of Mild, Med, Hot, plus 4 different cajun flavoring for your crawfish, every 2 pound you order, you get a free corn of cob and 1 Sausage.
If I decided to start off slowly and cook them from home by the pound order over the phone, are you willing to pick it up $5.00/lb?
Bring it on Dannyboy I’m getting Hongry just thinking about it!

I am a medical Marijuana patient in California traveling to Louisiana.Will Louisiana deny me my medicine?
Will I get in trouble if I am caught with medical marijuana?
Louisiana sees it as Marijuana.
And they do not like it – read overview the law http://norml.org/index.cfm?wtm_view=&Group_ID=4540
A smart patient knows how to travel and medicate with out running into Johnny Law.
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.
