Well, off to New Orleans tomorrow for the Zurich classic. Should be a fun week full of great food and great people.
Even though I had fun out in New Orleans I realize that Bourbon Street is a modern day Sodom and Gomorrah. I know folks are like what is he talking about. I guess my walk with christ is just strong and I prayed the following day for them folks.

a sad realization crossed my mind a minute ago.. where in New Orleans can you hear cutting edge,abstract,next level jazz at? it's not in the streets or any stage in New Orleans, its only on WTUL... for years now it seems like the local trad cats are just completely oblivious or hate on it completely,and I think that *** .I love the roots vibes too,but there could be some great funky space stuff happening, if some people would just open their minds up to the's crazy.
There are so many things to do in New Orleans Easter weekend.
I finally put it together everybody say New Orleans ppl just like crabs in a bucket today I realized that not true I say the fact is we don't get ahead because we can be dead wrong and not give a *** Prime example have you ever been on I10 doing 60mph in the "passing lane/ fast lane" not passing but ppl have to pass you in the exit lane. You make it hard for everybody.
Attention Dear Friends: In 2011 I had a vision to leave the military at the peak of my Career and plant a church in New Orleans. The Grace (Hospital of Grace Christian Church). In October that year it happened. We left San Diego and did as God intended. Since then, we've made significant impact in the lives of many families and in the New Orleans community. From renting a hall to acquiring our own facility across town. It all happened quicker than we expected. I am honored to say that it's now time to advance to the next assignment. The Grace Church is about to embark upon a greater journey under the leadership of Christopher Allen Moore and Leading-Lady Shaamon Burton-Moore. They pastor The Church of Change and have answered the call to pastor The Grace. My Family will be heading back to our home in San Diego next week. The Moore family have been a blessing to us and it brings me great joy to call them friends :) Church today showed both ministries that this transition is 'bigger' than us.. It's certain ...

You haven't lived until you've had a Puff The Magic Dragon singalong with a bunch of pirates in New Orleans. Thanks, Rhythm and Rain.
First night not laying my head down in New Orleans. I'd love to go back but I'm glad to be home because that means my senior year of high school is almost over. I had the time of my life with some of my best friends. Kind of sad that come June 6th we'll hardly ever see each other again but that's the way life goes. Time to turn a new page. Can't wait to see what life has in store for me! I love the class of 2014! featured in NBC s Science of Love
I really wish there could be a real housewives of New Orleans/Baton Rouge but I am 90% sure someone would end up's a shame too because I would be so good on that show...don't want to die though.

Happy Easter!!” It was a fun greeting for me to make today, as I walked through the streets of The French Quarter in New Orleans. Especially being Jewish. But I didn’t tell any one. Most strangers think I'm Italian anyway. Seeing people walk down Bourbon Street with beads and Bunny ears was amusing. Everyone was in a great mood. Many women were wearing very creative Easter Bonnets with beads and of course, beer. Then it occurred to me the two parts of any holiday - The fun part and the meaningful part. Now, to the meaningful part. Being raised Jewish I was never taught to believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. I have numerous Christian friends whom I love dearly and respect their beliefs. We have many philosophical discussions about faith. I always find it invigorating, educational and inspiring. I can share this with you – there have been times in my life some behaviors of mine have died, by the grace of God and my values and beliefs were resurrected to god-like level. I’ll thank the goo ...

You can call me a whiner. But Memphis is geographically east of Milwaukee. And also vertically linear with Chicago and New Orleans. Yet some how Memphis is in the west and Milwaukee in the eastern conference. If this were corrected. The Suns would be playing tonight.

Well I definitely didn't think this flight on Easter Sunday through...New Orleans to Charlotte via Orlando. The flight attendant just made the announcement that we were headed to the happiest place on earth and the squeals and screams from the tiny voices that make up 75% of the plane all cheerfully agreed and clapped in unison. Somebody get me a drink. This is going to be the longest flight ever!!

We are thrilled to report that Andy Hospodor, one of our SCC members has had his clinical research accepted for poster presentation at the upcoming Pancreatic Cancer: Innovations in Research and Treatment conference to be held May 18 to May 21, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans, New Orleans, LA. Congratulations Andy! His abstract posted here: In over 20 states, cancer patients have access to cannabinoids (aka medical marijuana) and use them to treat symptoms of chemotherapy, such as nausea and lack of appetite. However, new evidence, both scientific and empirical, suggests that higher doses of cannabinoids may be an effective adjuvant alongside traditional chemotherapy agents, such as Gemcitibine. While nausea is controlled with daily dosages of 10 to 40mg, pancreatic cancer cells are known to over express the endo-cannabinoid receptor CB1 one hundred fold. Cannabinoids target different receptors than traditional chemotherapy agents and have low combinatorial toxicity, and as such present a class ...
it is my tremendous good fortune to go through this life with adam. we're heading to new orleans next week, by way of charleston, montgomery, selma.and along the way we are going to listen to the collected speeches of dr. king. then new orleans. and all that jazz. on the way BACK we're going to to the holocaust/paperclip museum in TN that i've been following/supporting for years and's not a trip that would excite everyone, but we are both giddy, on the real. xo
I have been blessed! I have lived in bustling cities of Atlanta, St Louis, Nashville and New Orleans. I have lived in the Arkansas Mountains and in the plains of West Texas. I have seen three oceans, walked across the mighty Mississippi, hiked in the Rocky Mountains and experienced the hospitally of Mexico and the Caribbean. I have visited ancient cities of the Mayans and several America Indians. I have met 4 governors and 1 president. I have met countless entertainers and sport celebrities through my travels. I have spent hours at the feet of Sam Walton learning my trade. I have owned my own company and have mentor many to levels of success far greater than mine. But of all of my experiences it is the simple things that are most important . Like spending the weekend with my two Sons! Happy Easter!

The CW has released an official episode description for the May 6 episode of The Originals, “The Battle of New Orleans.” “BLOOD IS IN THE AIR — Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) enact a plan to collect the sacred stones needed by Genevieve (guest star Elyse Levesque) in order to forever change the fates of Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and the werewolf community. Realizing that Klaus’ plan will lead to the extermination of all French Quarter vampires, Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) rallies an army determined to take down the Mikaelsons and regain control of the city. Davina (Danielle Campbell) warns Josh (guest star Steven Krueger) to leave town as she is forced to make a fateful decision that will turn the tide of war. Meanwhile, Francesca (guest star Peta Sargent) threatens Cami (Leah Pipes), who attempts to decipher a code that results in a surprising revelation among the city’s factions. Jeffrey Hunt directed the episode written by Charlie Charbonneau & Michael Narducci.”
MediaZew: Darren Sharper has 3rd rape allegation in New Orleans
Our sweet friend Stephanie Cunningham died today. Her health had continued to deteriorate for the past several months. We first got to know Stephanie back in 1984 when she accompanied our children Roger Herndon and Melissa Graves to the World's Fair in New Orleans. At the time, I was Alumni Director at MSU and was the travel guide for the MSU Alumni World's Fair trip. Stephanie was a kind and caring person, sometimes misunderstood, but always loving others unconditionally. She never really got over the death of her parents. I can rejoice for her tonight knowing that she in reunited with them and safe in the arms of her Savior. Rest in peace dear friend.

JEFF “BEACHBUM” BERRY’S LATITUDE 29 COMES TO THE BIENVILLE HOUSE HOTEL IN NEW ORLEANS' French Quarter Dear Friends, As most of you know, my wife Annene and I have spent the last two years in search of a New Orleans location for a Beachbum Berry drinking and dining establishment. We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve found one: the soon-to-be vacated space currently occupied by Iris restaurant, located in the French Quarter’s Bienville House Hotel (321 N. Peters St.). Our place, which will be rechristened Latitude 29 (named for the latitude where New Orleans is located), will open this fall. We feel extremely fortunate to work with a hotel of the caliber of the Bienville House; it’s not only an establishment with impeccable standards, but a place to which we feel personally connected. Annene and I are some of those people -- there are more with each passing year -- who were introduced to New Orleans through Tales Of The Cocktail, in our case back in 2005. Our subsequent stays at the Bienville ...

COURTESY POST - FOUND DOG! A young lady picked up a lovely 30# female dog running down Hwy 61 in St Francisville while she was driving back home to New Orleans. She knocked on doors in the area, but no one recognized "Frannie". Animal control in St Francisville was closed. This lovely black with white girl is very friendly, happy and super sweet, but she's not microchipped. She clearly misses her family. If you recognize this young adult dog, or are missing her, she is now at the Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter - Eastbank under the name "Frannie". Please share to help us find her home!

a story . (born September 27, 1982), known by his stage name Lil Wayne, is an American rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana. In 1991, at the age of nine, Lil Wayne joined Cash Money Records as the youngest member of the label, and half of the duo The B.G.'z, alongside fellow New Orleans-based rapper Lil' Doogie. In 1996, Lil Wayne formed the Southern hip hop group Hot Boys, with his Cash Money label-mates Juvenile, Young Turk and Lil' Doogie (who now goes by B.G.). Hot Boys debuted with Get It How U Live! that same year. Lil Wayne gained most of his success with the group's major selling album Guerrilla Warfare (1999). Along with being the flagship artist of Cash Money Records, Lil Wayne is also the chief executive officer (CEO) of his own imprint, Young Money Entertainment, which he founded in 2005. Lil Wayne's debut studio album Tha Block Is Hot (1999), was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). His following albums, Lights Out (2000) and 500 Degreez (2002), were certi ...

Well, my New Orleans/MS Gulf Coast peoples, looks like it's gonna happen. Sometime in October (we're shooting for October 30th), we're coming down for a visit! Tentative plan is to stay in New Orleans the nights of October 30th and the 31st, then head over to the Coast for the remainder of our stay. Looking at hotels right now for New Orleans. I'm going to wait until next week to book because if the Saints are playing at home that weekend we might try to go the game (schedule comes out next week). More details to come.

So I've been after Dad to do some writing and posting of all the pictures he has been taking. He keeps using the excuse that we have been to busy traveling. I think I convinced him. Since he last wrote we have been to the Clarksdale, MS Juke Joint Festival for 3 days, Natchez, MS to see the Antebellum Mansions, Vidalia, LA to see the awesome bridge then back to MS to go down the Natchez Trace Trail and down to Baton Rouge. After a night there we went to New cool I got to walk all over Bourbon Street, 2 times! Then we went to some Civil War Fort (Fort Pike) that was neat and under 20'-30' of water during Hurricane Katrina. Not far away we came upon the plant where they built the space shuttles in LA.they wouldn't let visitors in any more. :-((( That's ok because we have been going along the beaches in Alabama and now into Florida...couple of days of weather even a dog could hate.

Nailah Jefferson’s film zeros in on the small Gulf community of Pointe à la Hache, La., about an hour from New Orleans, where the oyster industry has been devastated, leaving out-of-work fishermen and their families. The movie charges that legal settlements were slowly and ineffectively distributed. (Wes Tunnell, the marine biologist who provided the victim’s compensation fund with projections on how quickly the Gulf might rebound, expresses reservations about how his report was used.) More than one person compares fighting BP, which leased the runaway well, to fighting God.

Posted on April 12, 2014 at 9:33 pm by Jenny Dial Creech in General 2013-14 Rockets: Game-by-game Rockets rookies Troy Daniels and Robert Covington have had a busy week. After meeting the Rockets in Denver on Wednesday then traveling with them to Minnesota Friday, the two went back down to the D-league and joined the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in Des Moines to play against the Iowa Energy on Saturday at noon. Both players played over 44 minutes on Saturday afternoon before catching a plane to return to Houston to be with the Rockets when they hosted New Orleans on Saturday night. Daniels and Covington both played 11 minutes against Denver and made contributions in the loss. Daniels had a career high 12 points while Covington had five points and two rebounds. Rookie Isaiah Canaan, who has seen significant playing time in the last eight games before Saturday since starting point guard Pat Beverley was out, said he was happy to see his fellow first year players getting their chances. Canaan said that he told b ...
Helis Oil & Gas, a New Orleans-based independent energy company, is expected to drill in the St. Tammany Parish portion of the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale. “This definitely is a TMS wildcat,” Tuscaloosa Trend blog author Kirk Barrell said in his most recent post. The proposed location lies dozens of miles southeast of the most active area of the oil-rich shale. The Tuscaloosa stretches across the middle of Louisiana and into Mississippi. The formation holds an estimated 9 billion barrels of oil. The St. Tammany Parish Clerk of Court’s Office should stock up on paper because the landmen are coming, Barrell said. “Congrats to Helis for investing in the play. It’s amazing to see small independents like Goodrich, Encana, Halcón and Helis pioneering this emerging oil play,” Barrell said. “From a geologic standpoint, this will be an interesting location.” Helis President David Kerstein declined to comment. The well would be drilled to around 13,000 feet in depth, deeper than the usual Tuscaloosa we ...

One of the greatest writers who ever lived has died. Gabriel Garcia Marquez. His ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SOLITUDE (UN CIEN ANOS DE SOLEDAD) won the Nobel Prize some years ago. I first read this book on a bus trip from New Orleans to San Francisco quite a while back. I took a bus because I wanted to see the scenery from mid-Texas to California, but instead I missed all the scenery because I could stop reading the novel. Simply a magnificent work of art, it is.
Charleston South Carolina is a wonderful town/city n it's detailed to perfection and everyone is very nice and friendly. Great restaurants etc. I can't say a bad word about it as it even has beaches across the bridge. However, it lacks something that New Orleans has, which is not specifically difinitive. I'm Gona for heart n soul n subconscious feelings have to say that I will roll with New Orleans over charleston for living and starting biz. Can't put my finger on it but just missing something that Nola has ?
Starting in the 1840s the area called the Point was home to many upper income residents who had moved from New Orleans, giving the area on Fulton Street the nickname "the Frenchmen's Row". They built many mansion houses in the area, the best known of which was the Heigold House (completed in 1853), built by immigrant stonemason Christian Heigold. In 1854 rerouting of Beargrass Creek, and floods caused many to be torn down. Today only the façade of Heigold’s mansion remains, it has been moved a couple of times, but now it rest on Frankfort Ave. in a round-a-bout just North of River Road. Heigold carved into the stone facade several patriotic inscriptions, and images to show his patriotism to his adopted homeland, including one of George Washington, The Heigold house and the Padgett home were placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Padgetts home still remains where Fulton Street was located, it’s location is on the river side of the new condo’s being build across from Frankfort ave. a ...

New Orleans race recap- short version. As triathletes we know that what we do can be dangerous. That was driven home hard when an Atlanta Firefighter and his brother in law were hit by a car Friday on the Ironman New Orleans course training for the race. The Firefighter was killed and the brother in law is in critical condition fighting for life. Apparently the driver was not paying attention and had his. 10 year old son with him. He is in jail charged with homicide. I hope he rots there. I can not tell you how many close calls I have had in a short time. People do not respect you on a bike. They do not know you don't have eyes in the back of your head. They don't know you actually have the right of way nor do they care. They don't know the law states you must yield three feet when passing. Some even try to scare you and pretend to sideswipe you like some guy did to me in the battlefield. So when you see a cyclist, be respectful, give room and wave. I know they would be most appreciative Race report- grea ...

Philadelphia cuts cooperation with ICE deportation police: Nutter’s order comes after police officers in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and in a number of other places throughout the US have spent years working on behalf of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, detaining immigrants not accused of any wrongdoing and providing them to ICE for deportation. Philadelphia police will still honor ICE requests to apprehend immigrants who have been convicted of a first or second degree felony involving violence, and only if ICE provides a warrant for the detention, according to Philadelphia Daily News. Similar arrangements are already in place in two US states, Washington DC, and another eight cities and 12 counties throughout the country. The most notable among those locations are New York City and New Orleans, Louisiana. The executive order earned praise within orders of the mayor’s signing, with immigration advocacy groups praising the new limitation on ICE. Nicole Kilgerman, a community organiz ...

Rosita Chatonda, a "structured-out" Black teacher, calls for the U.S. Justice Department to: "Investigate the Massive Terminations of African American Teachers in U.S. Schools" Chatonda says "More than 100,000 Black teachers have been terminated." By Rosita Chatonda April 14, 2014 From Massachusetts to Michigan, from New York to New Orleans, tens of thousands of Black teachers are being "structured out" of the Education field. The Chicago Public Schools is no exemption. Over 6,000 Black teachers lost their jobs in the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) between 2010 and 2013. In 3 years, can 6,000 educators become incompetent? Would 6,000 educators decide to retire all at once? Since the year 2000, over 10,000 have lost their jobs. The same is true for almost every large urban school district highly populated by African Americans. Cities like New Orleans, Detroit, Philadelphia and many more have been affected. Nationwide over 100,000 African American teachers have been terminated. Massive termination of Afric .. ...

Having cut an album of standards on his first Warner Brothers album, In a Sentimental Mood (1989), Dr. John turned for its follow-up to a collection of New Orleans standards. On an album he described in the liner notes as "a little history of New Orleans music," Dr. John returned to his hometown and set up shop at local Ultrasonic Studios, inviting in such local musicians as Pete Fountain, Al Hirt, and the Neville Brothers and addressing the music and styles of such local legends as Jelly Roll Morton, Huey "Piano" Smith, Fats Domino, James Booker, and Professor Longhair. The geography may have been circumscribed, but the stylistic range was extensive, from jazz and blues to folk and rock. And it was all played with festive conviction -- Dr. John is the perfect archivist for the music, being one of its primary proponents, yet he had never addressed it quite as directly as he did here.

Some time ago we were discussing the BHS band trip to Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Returning to Boaz the band spent a night in Biloxi, MS and then continued our return trip via Mobile.

I have one other pic which is of Bill Cox and the photographer from the Boaz Leader, Archie ?. The first night of the trip we stayed in the barracks of an army base. I think that cost us $1 each.
Many people think some of the things I participate in are slightly out there... so I would like to share the reality of my past few days...

Every action, from helping someone carry their bags, to giving us a lift to our car, to sharing a bite of food, was giving & at the same time receiving. These people are changing the lives of others- I met a very special man who has delivered truck loads and clothing to those in need from New Orleans to the Hopi tribes in AZ- many rallying to to educate others about clean food sources, I saw an old friend who had a booth filled with fantastic hand woven garments from Mex allowing the opportunity for a village to support their families thru fair trade, and my lovely soul sister Laurel Lyons from Sedona who sat on a panel and taught us about our dreams.

I had the good fortune of being able to step in as a last-minute chaperone for the Southwest High School choir trip to New Orleans. An 18-hour bus ride followed by trying to keep track of 220 high schoolers during the French Quarter Jazz Festival might not be everyone's cup of tea - and I wasn't at all sure it would be mine - but thanks to the fantastic students and staff of SWHS, I had an absolutely amazing time. Couldn't be prouder to be a Southwest and public school system parent - and to know what quality people we will be sending out into the world with this next generation. Here are a variety of photos from the trip:
You know you grew up in Nassau, New Providence if you understand the connection between the Battle of New Orleans, Obeah practices and two settlements in the Bahamas. Prior to the War of 1812 between Great Britain and the American Confederacy, the British still had an extensive foothold in Louisiana. At that time Florida belonged to Spain. Apart from the war with Britain, the Americans were embroiled in a conflict with the Seminole people, who enjoyed protection in Spanish Florida. The British sought to employ Guerilla warfare against the Americans, so they posted Captain Edward Nicholls to a Florida outpost called "Prospect Bluff". Nicholls' recruited Seminoles, Creeks, runaway slaves and freedmen, combined they waged a fierce opposition to the Americans, during the Seminole Indian war. The Battle of New Orleans took place on January 8th 1815 and the British lost in convincing fashion. The remnants of the British fighting forces along with a large following of residents, of New Orleans fled eastward, ov ...

The destruction was also reported in the New York Times on January 1, 1869: "Newspaper Office Destroyed by a Mob. New Orleans, Dec. 31. The editor of the Marksville Register, who is also the clerk of the seventh judicial district court, reports the total destruction of his paper by a mob, led on by the editor of the Marksville Villager, a democratic paper published at the same place."

Not a good day! Arrived at airport early for my flight, checked in, got to my gate. Tried to pull up mobile boarding itinerary found. Hm. Searched for flight number.flight CANCELED. WTH? Oh, and by the way, all flights into Houston are sold out, and that's only connecting HUB to get me to New Orleans today. So.I'm waiting to board a BUS contracted by United to Houston to catch my connecting flight home. Hmmm.think United Airlines would have enough planes around to bring in a bigger one. But I guess bussing their customers 2.5 hrs makes more sense to someone...somewhere...for some reason.

They don't have 8 ward song in New Orleans do they? Oh
I had a roommate in New Orleans who is the only person I know who has been arrested for drunk in public on Bourbon Street. He thought he was lucky when the police didn't find the cocaine in his pocket. They did, however, find it when he was in lockup. They charged him with introducing a controlled substance into the prison system. I found a set of fake identity documents in his room later. Apparently he was on probation in another state for a dui. Believe it or not this guy was better than the guy I found on Craigslist.

Sub modo Sub modo is Latin for "Subject to a modification or qualification." In a contract sub modo, the agreement between the parties may be altered or limited within certain parameters. For example, in a 19th Century United States Supreme Court case, Eldridge v. Trezevant, 160 U.S. 452, a landowner with property adjoining the Mississippi River filed for an injunction to block the State of Louisiana from building a levee through his property. Citing an earlier Louisiana case, Ruch v. New Orleans, 43 La. Ann. 275, the Court upheld a lower court's dismissal of the injunction, stating "Under the doctrine of a servitude, the riparian owner enjoys his property sub modo, i.e. subject to the right of the public to reserve space enough for levees, public works, and the like; that over this space the front proprietor never acquires complete dominion.
