(2) Young Wayne Toups, Plays At “Cowgirls” In The Mid 1980’s

Another step back in time, a nostalgic memory. “Young” Wayne Toups just starting out at a club called “Cowgirls” located in Scott, Louisiana. Although the club is no more, my transcribed VHS of Wayne Toups music (back in the mid 1980’s) still goes on. Of interest to all that love music, to enjoy and for some to reminisce. Keep in mind we did not have the technology that is current of today’s times.

Can anyone tell me what school district would my child attend if I moved to Topys Louisiana.?

It would be Middle / High school. I would also like to know what type of sports programs are available.

I’m origianlly from Louisiana and both my memory and a Yahoo seach knew of a place called "Topys". Could you be a little more accurate, then I can help.

The truth is, Louisiana has an absolutely dreadful public school system in nearly every parish. Sending your kid to public school there is like a life sentence, because a crappy education IS a life sentence.

Hate to be so blunt but it’s true.

The State protects this sacred "homestead exemption" on property taxes and the schools suffer for funding and attention as a result. Better find out where you are moving and get your kids in private school….or else!

I need to travel 750 miles south southwest, how many miles is that from portland maine ?

i need to meet someone half way.what is 750 miles from portland maine traveling to louisiana

A good place to stop would be Harrisonburg, Virginia. From there you could visit some quite historic sites such as New Market, Thomas Jefferson’s home in Monticello and James Monroe’s home. This entire area is full of history and Harrisonburg is full of Quality motels along I-81. Using Harrisonburg is only 653 miles, you could continue on down to the North Carolina area, but my stop would be Harrisonburg

Good luck on you trip.

Can anyone from South Louisiana tell me how to make a gumbo with roux that you buy in a jar?

I am going to attempt to cook a duck, hen, and sausage gumbo for the first time and I’m not really sure how to do it. I’ve been looking for recipes online but all of them include how to make the roux from scratch. I just wanted to use Kary’s Dark Roux. Can anyone tell me how to make the gumbo with the Kary’s roux? Thanks.

All you have to do is put your jar roux in the pan first and start with you ingredients. Usually I make it from scratch, but you can put it in the pan and add the onions, bell pepper, celery and garlic. Sauté until the onions become translucent and the vegetables are tender. Usually we have beef cubes in ours to add flavor. But to answer your question just start out with it in the pan and heat it and go from there.
