Be Careful if You are Irish!

I hope you had an enjoyable St. Patrick’s Day. Depending on where you live, it’s a huge celebration. I was down in New Orleans for St. Patrick’s Day, and the Irish were everywhere. But it’s also different world out there. Traditionally, you give a lady on the parade route a rose, and she gives you a kiss. But boy do you have to be careful in this day and age. See the cartoon below. Be Careful if You are Irish!

The Power of Words

The power of words! This is a short story about the life of ingenius Thomas Edison and his heroic mother! This story illustrates what power lies in our words! In fact, what we say and confess happens to us in life! Take care of your children, remember this story every time when you want to say that they are not able to do something, or someone finds them not skillful enough! Remember that your child is a genius, if you will not convince your child otherwise!

A new book on the New York Times bestselling list by mathematician and philosopher Nicholas Taleb concludes that politicians often fail because they generally have nothing at risk. There are no costs. They have no skin in the game. That is certainly true with the current Louisiana Legislature.  Letting the Bayou State grind to a halt has no down side for most of them. I look at the problem in my new column now posted.  You can read it by clicking on the Red Flashing Box above or by Clicking Here.

Crawfish Time Down here on the Bayou!

Hey, it’s crawfish time down here in Louisiana. Our friends from outside the state don’t realize how these mudbugs take over our menus for the next several months. I’m planning a big crawfish boil, cooking up several hundred pounds, this weekend right after the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Baton Rouge. You all are welcome to come. Eating crawfish is a way of life down here in the Bayou State. If you’re not from down here, I hope you will have the chance to try them soon. You will be hooked. Do you know that 90% of the crawfish taken in ponds and lakes are kept and sold right here in the state? We just can’t let them go.
