How's the Mexican? I know my leftover cold coffee is good w/o sugar or cream. 

I got used to drinking warm soda and cold coffee at work. We couldn't go get any time we wanted.

I attended Holy Cross in the 9th ward for 3 years. Today I refuse to go to N.O. for a couple reasons. Violence and crime are the main ones. It's their city now.

We lived 1 block away from Holy Cross, 813 Forstall street, yes they can have it now.

 

We love to go to the French Quarter to take pictures and listen to music but we don't anymore, walking around with a good camera and tripod is like asking to get shot/robbed. Last time it was winter and I could hide the camera under a jacket, it's the only way I would go now, and with a few people.

 

When I was between 15-21 I was in the quarter all the time, it was completely different back then, never had a problem.

Growing up in N.O. was awesome! The music, the people, public transportation, the great food, and Mardi Gras.

It was great, well of course the food but the music was great, the Warehouse and the Riverboat President was our favorite places to go see concerts. Haven't been out in a while but Rock n Bowl is also a great place to see local bands.

 

It;s crazy they really need to get the crime under control and the city would have more business than they can handle.

About a week before Mardi gras some friends came down from Arkansas and wanted to go to the Quarter, so we took them.  We were sitting where those bronze statues are and a guy wearing tights and a tutu was there with his girlfriend or wife. One of the girls we were with said I want a picture of that guy being what he is wearing do you think he would mind I don't want to ask. I told her you have no idea what it's like during Mardi Gras. I went to his table and he laughed and said sure so I took their picture, they ended up dancing right there between the tables.

Our friend Mark who came down with them was saying no one was throwing beads to him from the balcony like they were to all the women.

 

 I told him what to do and he said really, I said yes so he did it, I knew his tattoos would make it work and it did, he did it about 20 times and he and the girls couldn't carry all the beads. 

 

He is crazy, to the point when it got to be about 1:30 or so we decide to leave, it was heading to the point of having to much fun, it's downhill after that usually.

 

It's about the only time we go anymore if someone wants to go and has never been, that is fun.

that puts my sarong in perspective....  and the guy with the breach clout.

 

There was a guy on the islands... wore what looked liked a joker costume from a deck of cards and waving pennants while walking around.

all of the Mexican coffee I have had, has a distinct taste. Some is more refined than others. This, I have been getting is a peaberry. The folks at the roaster do it proud. Makes some fine coffee.

Yes, it does, I would bet there were a couple floating around the crowd.

Oh yes, you were really close to Holy Cross. I walked down Neyres St all the time from the St Claude bus stop to school. Our paths may have crossed at some time, who knows. I spent a lot of time in the Quarter too growing up. When i was like 9 or 10, I remember the family would pile in the car and drive down Bourbon St to see the people, sights, and strip clubs. Back then you could drive down Bourbon St anytime. Then we would stop at Cafe du Monde for coffee and bignets thru the car window, curb style.

Before me and my buddy got our driver's license, we'd take the streetcar downtown all the time. Or ride our bicycles pretty much anywhere. My older sister (+8 years) lived on Frenchman St and worked at Kreeger's on Canal St, and KcKenzie's before they all closed down.

 

Been to Rock n Bowl a couple times, very popular and fun place. I remember when the  Warehouse first opened, if you brought a remnant of carpet, you got in for free for a show. I saw a couple concerts there before I was 20. Saw Boston there....what a show! Dr. John @ the St Bernard Civic Center like 47 years ago (my first live concert). Grand Funk Railroad @ the Municipal Auditorium before I was 15. Been on the President too (another NO institution). Attended many concerts @ Kiefer Arena on the UNO campus over the years. Later the House of Blues in the Quarter.

 

Music was/is such an integral part of life in NO. Lot of good memories in the city over the years. The lakefront and the parks.

I don't know about you, but I actually enjoy taking care of a pool, vacuuming, treating, etc..

I do as well after getting 2 things in the last few years.  1.  Mesh safety cover for the winter, easy on, easy off no more water bags.  2.  My Dolphin auto vac ( I should have gotten one of these 10 years ago).  i actually don't spend much time at all regarding maintenance with the exception of a few hours when I open and close and monitoring my levels which stay pretty constant after dialing them in the first 24 hours after opening, but I'm really particular about water balance and laugh when I stop by my local pool supply and hear all the people complaining about their pool water and spending hundreds of dollars to try and fix what they screwed up.  I normally end up educating a few people waiting in line to have their water tested about proper balance and how much time and money they can save if they just dial that in in the first place.  I know the owner pretty well and he laughs when I have them check my water to make sure that all my reagents are good in my test kit.

being good "hill folk", we make our own

 

 and I left my coffee in the frig house... again Maybe I should outsmart myself and bring a coffee machine out to the doghouse. Have a half of a plan to bring water here. Sink/shower are easy... gray water.

this Sumatran coffee gets a little sour when it ages/gets cold. I've had some that had to be drank immediately after brew or it would sour.

 

55` this AM. Going for 100`. Still no humidity. Late start on our monsoon - if it happens at all.

  If we don't get some wet soon, the mesquites will "drop" their leaves,  they don't so much drop as turn gray and wait for new growth to push them off.

 

@Tarheel

Are you SURE you want to part with your LaScalas?  I know your gf likes those tall speakers.... sound to me like you don't want to get rid of yours... you need to buy another pair and stack them. Then they will be tall like the gf likes

My Dolphin auto vac

I have a auto vac too, but not sure on the brand, I thought I read that it was a triton, but not the dolphin.  I will have to check.   I love waking up early Saturday morning and seeing the sun glisten on the water and vacuuming the pool, its really peaceful.  My mom had a pool that I took care of one summer and never had any water issues.  This is my first pool and hope to not have any as well.  Its amazing how so many people invest so much time and money in pools and still don't know what's going on.

Keeping a pool isn't rocket science. Not to say there isn't a lot to keeping them proper. I kept a small sewage  'plant" and a swimming pool. The sewage plant is easier ... until it gets full of sand.   Then "someone" get to go down into the tank and fill buckets while they get hauled up on a rope... and out. We would get a little dirty. We made sure.

 

I have dealt with a couple swimming pools that got out of hand - black algae.  Ya gotta love sandblasting in the summer.

 

 

   .... I would go out on a limb and say that albums are supposed to make some noise.  Marcel Marceau's Greatest Hits excluded

I remember walking down to St Claude with my dad, there was a hot tamale stand on the corner we would go get some to bring home. All along the way people would be sitting on the porches and everyone would talk to you as you walked by, it was really nice back then, a real neighborhood.

Before I could drive we would rid or bikes on the levee to get to the quarter and ride all over the quarter.

We like to go there, we have even taken the grandkids to hear live music there. It's part bowling alley so kids can get in, they loved it. Our cousin was singing in a band, the Wise Guys and was a good band with a large horn section. She also sang those funny song with the band Benny Grunch , who sang songs like the 10 yats of Christmas.

 I remember that thought it was cool but it turned out to be a big mess in the end, it got pretty funky. I  was at that Boston concert, Peter Frampton, J Giles, well to many to type really, it was my favorite place to see a concert. Santana at the Municipal Auditorium, ZZ Top and Aerosmith at city park stadium, it was a great time back then and it was cheap to see a show back then.

Your right UNO Assembly Center was nice also and the fields around it, seen Chicago outside there and Eric Clapton in the arena, also the Eagles.

I miss those days.

 

Like that saying, 

I might be old but we got to see all the cool bands.

Does anyone know the recipe for a good apple cider cocktail?  This is really useful information for beginner cocktailmakers. Education is needed even for this. You can read an essay about civil disobedience to understand that education is the basis of the existence of modern man. You can read it on the online service https://samples.edusson.com/civil-disobedience-essay/. I also wanted to ask a question. I want to take my son on the hunt, but I do not know whether it will harm him. He study at school and he is 12 years old. The wife is against it, but it seems to me that he will like it.
