Louisiana Culinary Trails – Delta Delights

Rich farmland, recreational waterways and scenic highways dominate Northeast Louisiana. This side of the Delta still lays claim to unspoiled and undeveloped backroads that take modern day explorers back in time. It’s all about Southern tradition in this neck of the Great Southern Pine Forest, where many of the go-to eateries have been in continuous operation for at least a half-century. Grab a map and head off to discover one of the nearby rural treasures within an hour’s drive of Monroe/West Monroe. Slow down, relax, and enjoy a perfectly seasoned Southern dish — from frog legs to fricassée — prepared from a distinctive recipe passed down for generations.

Good Morning NOLA!  Rise and shine! I do see the sun but looks like a partly cloudy day on the chart for today.  Having said that don’t be fooled, it  is cold out there!  Don’t leave home without your coat.  There is only a ten percent chance of rain so I think you are safe without the umbrella for now. It’s not too bad in the car out of the wind. I am spending my morning reading to a headstart class.  I’m not sure who enjoys it more, me or them. What will you do today? I am told that the number one is the number of illumination.  With all these ones in the date today I bet there will be plenty of illumination going on.  Bundle up and get out there to enjoy your day in this beautiful city!  Whether your plan is to go to work, take a walk, run errands or whatever it may be, do it now .  According to the New Orleans weather 10 day forecast the weekend might not be so great. Check back tomorrow and every day for an update on what is happening weatherwise in the Big Easy.

Good Morning NOLA!   Okay what happened to our spring weather? It was a little chilly if you were out last night .  That was  really a little suprise for some of the area.  The clouds should move out by this afternoon leaving us with a little cooler temps. Grab a jacket or a sweater before you head out. Now our rain chances have decreased for the next few days.   The forecast is showing more rain for later in the week too. It is only suppose to be isolated thunder storms but be prepared.  I will have the umbrella at the ready but there is plenty of cover in the Quarter.  What’s a little rain after all? The sun should make its appearance again just in time for the weekend. There will be lots going on as usual.  I am taking a break so I will not be at the 1850’s House Store this weekend but will be back on the Square the following weekend. So make plans to come out a get your personalized copies of “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky!” and “IF I Were A French Quarter Rat”.  Whatever you decide to do today, enjoy! See y’all in NOLA!

Good Morning NOLA!  Our  high will be in the eighties today.  It is WINDY outside! Hold on to you hat, literally.  We are in for a few windy days this week.  The forecast says we are looking at twenty miles an hour or so today.  There will be some clouds today and possibly a stray shower or two even though the chance is only ten percent today.  It never hurts to keep the umbrella handy.  We will have a couple of windy days and our rain chance gets higher as the week progresses. Wednesday looks to be a rainy day in the Crescent City.  There is still lots going on in the city as usual.   Jazz Fest is around the corner and the line-up looks awesome as usual.  I will  be at the 1850’s House Store sigining books in a couple of weeks. I will let you know exact dates as I get them. So make plans to come out a get your personalized copies of “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky!” and “IF I Were A French Quarter Rat”.  Whatever you decide to do today, enjoy! See y’all in NOLA!

Georgia Health Insurance Helps Members of the Peach State Become More Healthy

Georgia has just been named in the top 10 for one of the unhealthiest states in the nation. Georgia is ranked No. 6 on the list following just Florida, Nevada, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Mississippi. These rankings were done judging each state on twenty-one different factors ranging from cancer rates to obesity. Georgia has recently leaped into the top ten in the past ten years, with Georgia being 24 sports higher at No. 30 less than ten years ago. Georgia has been ranked fourth in the number new AIDS cases per year, and firth for the number of sexually transmitted diseases. Just these two new statistics it’s enough to send anyone living in the Peach State packing. Besides the spread of STD’s one of the main reasons why people living in the Peach State are considered some of the most unhealthy in the country is because of an unhealthy lifestyle as well as a high-fat diet which is putting a lot of people down south at risk.

High-fat diets are known to have levels much higher than the levels advised by the American Heart Association, which can over time, cause cardiac or heart problems. Problems like there are very serious and can lead to very serious surgeries such as heart bypass surgery. For people who are going to continue to state on their high-fat diets, and even for people who don’t that live in Georgia, it is very important for them to have some type of Georgia Health Insurance. Georgia being one of the most unhealthy states in the nation gives good reason for residents to have a good Georgia Health Insurance plan especially a plan which include well-visit check ups as well as any type of testing or screening that may be important to screen for such serious ailments such as heart disease.

Here few ways that nutritionists recommend that residents of Georgia can change their lifestyle in order to become more healthy. One of the easiest ways is to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your life. Fruits and vegetables are relatively inexpensive and they are also very good for you, when purchasing fruits and vegetables remember that the darker the fruit or vegetable, the better it will be for you. This is because the darker it is the more nutrients it will hold. Also, eating raw vegetables such as tomato, or lettuce is better for you than cooking them because they will retain all of the nutrients they are grown with, opposed to cooking or frying them which may lead to decrease in amount of nutrients.

Another way that residents of Georgia can become more healthy and safe is by purchasing Georgia health insurance. There are more than 45 million people across the country with health insurance, and many of those people are located in Georgia. Having some type of Georgia Health Insurance is imperative for residents to live a happy and stress-free lifestyle.

 Good Morning NOLA!  Well we are waking up to a very windy day today and the Green Bay Packers are the new Super Bowl Champions.  The Steelers just couldn’t pull it off. I hope they enjoy there year because our Saints will be back next year with an eye on the prize again.  Temperatures should reach the fifties today with partly cloudy skies.  But with so much wind it will probably feel a little colder.  Our lows will drop back into the thirties tonight. Overall it is shaping up to be a relative sunny week. There is still some rain and showers in the forecast but the outlook is mostly clear and cold for the rest of the week with a slight warming over the weekend to come.  With football done, I guess it’s on to the Mardi Gras festivities  and don’t forget Valentines Day is just around the corner.  Whatever you do today, work or play, I hope you have a wonderful day.  See you in NOLA!

SWBTV: Rebuilding Louisiana webisode 1

This is a documentary web series based on a trip 15 students from the Jersey City area (many from New Jersey City University) took to help Hurricane Katrina victims in Louisiana in 2007, two years after the hurricane.

We drove down from New Jersey to NOLA and spent a week gutting homes, cleaning entire neighborhoods and feeding underprivileged families devastated in the Buras and lower ninth ward. We also spent quality time with kids in the “450”, the largest trailer park in Louisiana – named for the 450 families residing there.

Originally, it was going to be produced as a full length documentary. But upon the advice of a filmmaking friend, I’ve decided to launch it online in 5 minute webisodes. This format creates an opportunity to open dialogue about what’s happened in Louisiana and what needs to be done on multiple levels.

This project and many others are just part of an effort via The NOLA Preservation Society to educate the youth locally and across the globe about the significance of music, art, culture and history of New Orleans (NPS).

NPS is already educating children in Jersey City through the Boys Club of America and local schools so that they may understand how Louisiana contributed to American culture, the similarities to their neighborhoods, and to show children how they can express their social viewpoints creatively.

In the meantime, make sure you subscribe to the feed at http://www.swb.blip.tv so that you’re notified of new webisodes as soon as they’re uploaded.

Open up some dialogue on the Louisiana situation, because it can happen anywhere, anytime.

Be well and enjoy the show.

Thanks,
Maxim Almenas

Good Morning NOLA!  Is it cold enough for you?  Just wait.  I am not in the least bit jealous of my movies buddies who are booked to work to the rest of this week. I am perfectly happy to stay close to home for a few days. It is VERY windy today.  If you are out and about in the CBD, you know it is even worse when it comes roaring between the buildings.  The low today is mid forties with a drop back in the thirties tonight. Just a minimal rain chance today but tomorrow we are looking at  a seventy percent chance and it won’t get out of thirties.  I think I will find something to do at home.  Friday is not much better with a ninty percent chance of rain and highs only in the low forties. The weekend will be clear but still chilly out there. The ground hog might have said early spring but it is not here yet.  Have a great day and I’ll see you in NOLA!
