To mark her 27th birthday, Britney Spears announced her 2009 tour, set to be her return to music. The 35-date North American & United Kingdom tour, aptly entitled, “The Circus Starring Britney Spears” will be the first tour for Spears in over four years.
With the exception of a few random performances and a short-lived attempt at a “comeback” in 2007, the singer has been relatively quiet when it comes to her career. But over the past few years, Spears’ personal life has been the focus of the media and public’s attention. With a marriage, divorce, birth of two children, rehab, custody battles and countless breakdowns and bizarre moments, people had nearly given up on the pop icon and continually referred to her story as a tragedy. Thankfully, with the help of her father, she got her feet back on the ground and headed back to the studio to write and record her latest album.
“Circus” is Spears’ sixth studio album, but certainly the most highly-anticipated of her career to date. Her kick off single “Womanizer” quickly became her first number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 since her debut “…Baby One More Time” in 1998, and gained the status of largest opening-week downloads, with 286,000, according to Neilsen SoundScan.
With the whole world rooting for her, Spears will kick-off her “circus” with opening act The Pussycat Dolls in her home-state of Louisiana on March 3, 2009. With a string of Canadian dates intertwined and a 7-date stretch at the O2 Dome in London, UK, The Circus Starring Britney Spears is set to be a record-breaking revival tour!

I was watching the Golden Girls, and the character Blanche Devereaux from Virginia is very Southern but has a French name
The french colonized up and down the eastern seaboard, so you’ll find french surnames. But no, there isnt any french speaking towns like in louisiana. Some places in Vermont, but thats up north.

I am in west central louisiana and was wondering if anyone knows if the oil used to deep fry the turkey would be good to poor out in the woods as an attractant.
mix with deercorn oatmeal and acorn all ground up with some malases. and you basicly have yourself a salt block. but as for the oil alone i dont beleve that there would be any reason that the deer would be attracted to that
