It appears that Mother Nature has us on the run. I never believed in natural paybacks. But, with all the hot air blowing from Wash – ington these days, it wouldn’t surprise me if those blowhards caused all the extreme natural phenomena of the past two months. Earthquakes. Tsunamis. Floods. Heavy Snow Storms. Mud Slides. […]

I posted about New Orleans Friday food yester – day. I started thinking about similarities in foods among the places I truly enjoy visiting or living. New Orleans, New Mexico, Thailand, China — every one of them has one thing in common. Much of their traditionally cultural foods are spicy. Some places called their spices […]


I’ve been emailing and Face – booking with a couple of New Orleans friends which reminded me that I had a request for “real” New Orleans food earlier this week. One of the pictures that I submitted was this one. Fried Friday Food — Fried Shrimp, French Fries, French Bread and Cole Slaw. A real […]
