See the link below where AI predicts that the SAINTS will have an 11-6 record. I predict a 6-11 record because the nincompoop offensive coordinator keeps sticking 4th string QB Tayson Hill in at QB every 3 or 4 plays, disrupting the starting QB’s mojo. Too stupid! Otherwise, the Saints would have made the playoffs last year.
AI predicts the 2023 records of all teams at this link:
With AI help, these predictions have the SAINTS in rarefied air at 11-6 this season. I personally still doubt the Saints’ offensive-coaching brain power. The team’s talent could win the Super Bowl, but the Saints’ offensive scheme is feeble-minded. I see a 6-11 record. Geaux #7 Taysom Hill at QB, TE, RB, punt-k/o returner, wide receiver, offensive in-and-outer who could help power-run the Saints to the Super Bowl if he were played correctly. SURELY NOT IN-AND-OUT AT QUARTERBACK! To keep putting Taysom (4th string QB) in-and-out when Andy Dalton and Jameis Winston were the field generals is as bone-headed as I have seen in professional football.
Clarence is not leaving for himself a great legacy in history. How can you say he is a credit to his race when he is tearing down everything that people fought and died for in the 1960’s? He is gutting voting rights, destroying affirmative action, turning abortion rights back to the Dark Ages. Plus, he receives questionable “political” gifts, hides under-the-table unethical dealings, has lied, etc. Clarence Thomas has turned the Supreme Court into one with ethical problems. My question is: do some of his actions taint his court rulings?
Speaking of the “MAGA crowd,” Justice Clarence Thomas’ wife works with the deplorables even though Clarence rules in the Supreme Court on many of the MAGA actions. Democrats call for new supreme court ethics rules amid Clarence Thomas’ recurring scandals… which ethics rules will be too little and way too late. It is so unfair for Judge Thomas to pass SCOTUS judgements on the very rights and most personal freedoms of Americans’ lives. In his unethical hands are life and death judgements which will last for many decades and beyond. How unfair to Americans! Democrats accuse the top U.S. court of the ‘lowest ethical standards’ in history, but Republicans say criticism of Justices Neil Gorsuch and Thomas is unfounded. The Republicans are evil and rotten.
I will cook a batch of my cajun boudin soon, and post a picture of a new addition to my recipe. Of course, I might also write a more in-depth recipe for y’all exposing some of my secret ingredients.
In Cajun cooking, particularly that of Acadiana parish in Louisiana, boudin refers to a mixture of meat, rice, and seasonings which are then stuffed in pork casings. Pork is the most traditional meat used, but you’ll also find boudin stuffed with crawfish, alligator, or shrimp. Boiled, smoked, or grilled, boudin can be consumed virtually anywhere which makes it an easy and satisfying on-the-go meal that fisherman and hunters are especially fond of.
Okay, the Saints are resting now since I wrote the below meme. However, I am beginning to read about the Saints again, but we all know that they are going to lose ignominiously this coming season if they continue their offense with the same juvenile game plan as last season… #woeisme!
NOTE: By the way, See below what I think about the New Orleans SAINTS’ game plan under the current coaches.
GAZETTE (April 14, 2023) — I cannot wait until I get to my refrigerator in order to see what holiday deliciousness is left.
I said that they put me in “time out” because it looks like they punished me after I raided the fridge for some leftovers from Thanksgiving.
If you are wondering what my thoughts were when I studied the picture of this girl, I wrote out some words that explain a little bit about what was percolating in my cranial area at the time. Scroll down a little bit to see what I wrote.
Now that my stomach is filled up, I feel like watching some TV. I do not need any blankets or heat because it is very pleasant tonight.
Music is the language of love. A song is what sparked off all of the love in the classic movie CASABLANCA.
I just watched the New Orleans SAINTS get rubbed out in a football game as usual. But anyway...
The Baton Rouge Advocate bought the New Orleans Times-Picayune and now we get LSU on the front page of the sports every day, and relegate Saints, Pels, Tulane to page four or further back in the newspaper. UPDATE: Word must have reached the Advocate because the newspaper has recently been fairer in its placement of stories about SAINTS, Pelicans, Tulane, etc.
Even Jesus Christ held music “upon high” in his ministry, and sang hymns when he met with his followers. Jesus’ music tradition is still carried on today in most religions which hold music up in a high place. The Scriptures say that the Lord lives in our praises. Godly, spiritual music is praise.
This picture below is scientists’ rendition of how Jesus looked (using scientific and DNA methods). This is the picture of Jesus that they portray.
Scientific methods drew this picture of how they say that Jesus looked.
Do you remember when Donald Trump strangled his secret service agent on January 6th?
Do you believe your very own eyes or do you believe the words coming out of Donald Trump’s lying mouth about the incident?
GAZETTE (New Orleans) — This picture below of Mrs. Thomas is somewhat mean-spirited. Mrs. Clarence Thomas is a lovely lady. It is her politics and sway on Clarence’s SCOTUS decisions that people do not like.
This is a younger picture (below) of Ginni Thomas which shows how lovely she was.
Many people wonder if Donald Trump will suffer any consequences for his insurrection crimes on January 6th. He wants to announce early for the 2024 Presidential race in order to protect himself from prosecution. His thinking is that no charges will be brought against him while he is campaigning.
Meanwhile, I would like to perform my act and music again.
by FERDIE (July 4) — My stand-up comedy and music career might be over. The Corona virus shut the doors of the coffee house at which I performed for a number of years. When it opened back up (they and Algiers Point Bar where I did some open mic nights) contacted me often to come back and perform. I was not ready to go into Corona crowds yet. They eventually stopped calling. I might start back, but I still avoid Corona crowds.
Kareem Abdul Jabber at 7’2″ makes Bill Russell and Muhammad Ali (both over 6 feet tall) look short. I tell you what, as I get older, I can see people who were shorter than I now look taller than I. It surprises me, but I had a back injury with vertebrae damage.
Have you ever seen a turtle basking in the sunlight. It is almost a spiritual act. I could never understand it
A Native indigenous question answered at this link:
Name: Wakan Tanka. Tribalaffiliation:Lakota, Dakota Personage: The Great Spirit; God. Alternate spellings: Wakantanka, Wakan-Tanka, Wakataka Pronunciation: wah-kahn tahn-kah Also known as: Great Mystery Type:High god, Creator Related figures in other tribes:Wakanda (Omaha), Earth-maker (Ho-chunk), Gitche Manitou (Ojibway)
Wakan Tanka is the great Creator power of the Lakota and Dakota tribes. Wakan Tanka is an abstract, omnipresent creative force who is never personified in traditional Siouan legends, and in fact did not even have a gender before the introduction of English with its gender-specific pronouns.

Inquiring minds want to know. Can we come up with the public’s opinion on the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard of their day (Brad&Angie)? I am now thinking that I should have given 2 more choices: 1. Neither one is wrong, or 2. Both of them are wrong.
100% of the voters said that Brad was wrong.
Sexy Jessica Simpson wants to know too. BREAKING NEWS (2016) was reported on the custody battle between Angelina and Brad:
I am happy to see that they resolved the custody battle for now.
This is a brief allusion to George Armstrong Custer and Custer’s Last Stand. I will add more information later on from my “Last Stand” study. Sitting Bull and Custer fought at the Battle of the Little BigHorn where Custer died on June 25, 1876.
Custer's Last Stand.
Sitting Bull poses below with Buffalo Bill, 1885
Buffalo Bill, known for his Wild West Show that featured Native American men and women, struck a partnership with Sitting Bull in 1885 when Sitting Bull performed on his show for several months. Sitting Bull in 1876 had lead his people against the U.S. government at the Battle of Little Bighorn (among other battles). The United States maintained its desire for revenge against Sitting Bull until it was successful in his death in 1890 two weeks before the Wounded Knee massacre of his tribe.
After he left Bill’s show, the two remained friends that lasted until the end of their respective lives. Sitting Bull ended up going back to his tribe after the show in support of his tribe’s Ghost Dance movement which the United States looked upon as insubordination. The U.S. ended the tribe’s Ghost Dance ceremony with a massacre of the Indians.
‘Pretty Nose’ sits here for her portrait in 1879
A photographer captured this image of Pretty Nose at Fort Keogh, Montana, in 1879. She was a member of the Arapaho tribe and was a war chief who took part in the Battle of Little Bighorn.
There are those who stated that she was a member of the Cheyenne tribe, but what she wore identified her as Arapaho, thanks to the black, red, and white cuffs adorning her. She lived well into old age, so much so that she was able to see her grandson, Mark Soldier Wolf, become an elder of the Arapaho tribe.
Then, more about Custer!
Where was Custer's Last Stand?
The Battle of the Little Bighorn was fought along the ridges, steep bluffs, and ravines of the Little Bighorn River, in south-central Montana on June 25-26, 1876. The Native combatants were warriors of the Lakota Sioux, Northern Cheyenne, and Arapaho tribes, battling men of the 7th Regiment of the US Cavalry, along with their Crow, and Arikara scouts.
Some girls survived the U.S. army massacres of that period.
What season are we in in Louisiana?
I wanted to say something about what season we are now in in Louisiana:
Big Mama sang it before Elvis did. I am trying to remember if Elvis sang it for his first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. This hit launched Elvis onto his phenomenal career. My thoughts: “You been snoopin’ round my door. You can wag your tail, but I ain’t gon’ feed ya’ no more”!
JESUS H. CHRIST!! Pelicans’ #ZionWilliamson is named as a starter on the #NBA All-Star team. #Hallelujah!
What in the hell do you think of that?
I cannot wait until the All-Star game.
These two Hollywood icons were sleeping with men undercover. Tell me it “ain’t” so. These here are Cary Grant and Gary Cooper. The article in the link below says they left “a legacy of bravery and perseverance.” Maybe, that is such concerning the roles they played in the movies; not so in their life as gays.
Here I write about a Mardi Gras memory; a blast from the past!
Firstly, a note: by Ferdie (Jan. 28, 2023) — I received some good news about my A1C and blood sugar levels on Thursday. My doctor said, “Excellent”!
After that good news, this is what I said about my “staying afloat” health wise and how I wanted to celebrate:
Now, back to my article:
BOSCOVILLE (Gazette) — By the way, this is from Mardi Gras weekend 2014 in New Orleans: The best of the parades and the best of the Balls are this weekend… culminating on Fat Tuesday. I am worn down tonight; but I am going to kick things back off in the morning.
Yes, this picture is becoming one of my favorites. I need to find this poster and hang it on my wall. WHERE CAN I FIND THIS POSTER?? I want it.
GAZETTE (February, 2014) — I just read something that reminded me that the OSCARS are tonight. I might come back online later and list my choices before the broadcast.
GAZETTE (Jan. 20, 2023) — True story! During a 2023 New Year’s celebration (at about 1220am), I sang a song for the crowd which I dedicated to a sweet someone which rendition made her swoon. I occasionally serenade her anyway; and many of the romance songs which I sang at the Coffee House were written by me for her. Very true!
GAZETTE (Jan. 28, 2023) — This following definition enhancement is illuminating for me because it tells me a success strategy. It might help me with reaching my goals:Ideation is not just a one-time idea generation or a brainstorming session. In fact, we can divide ideation into these three stages:generation, selection, and development.
A NOTE in 2014. (I have since changed my mind 180°): Coach Monty Williams of the New Orleans Pelicans needs to be fired. This team has been in last place of their division for the last three years. Does owner Tom Benson have his head stuck up his buttockal area?
In a repost from 2019: This is New Orleans SAINTS’ Demario Davis speech before the Seattle SEAHAWKS game:
It’s time to hunt. It’s time to hunt.
The hunt’s got three parts.
First it’s the prowl.
The prowl is where you study your prey and you creep in and figure out how you’re going to get that perfect strike. We done studied this opponent all week. We know the opponent. Now it’s time to strike,
The second part is the kill.
The kill is what people don’t like. That’s that nasty (stuff.) It’s violent. It’s SAINTSick. It’s malicious. It’s violent. When you see your opponent today, look him in his eyes and take his soul. And don’t stop until it’s gone. Don’t stop until it’s gone.
And the last part is to eat. It’s to eat. That’s the whole reason why we are here. When one wolf eat, all the wolves eat. When one lion eats, all the lions eat. So if you want to take care of your brother, you eat. You eat by making plays. Every throw. Every catch. Every tackle. Every sack. Let’s go eat. Let’s go eat!!
I like old-school movies and old-school pictures. Bettie Page has to be the most prolific pinup queen ever. She has a great, unending volume of pictures. The Los Angeles Times wrote: “Page was most famous for the estimated 20,000 4-by-5-inch black-and-whoite glossy photographs taken by amateur shutterbugs from 1949 to 1957. The photos showed her in high heels and bikinis or negligees, bondage apparel–or nothing at all.”
To explain the meaning of the Louisiana state flag, one must stress the fact of the Catholic spiritual act of self mutilation or self torture. This is called vulning which many Catholics have practiced throughout history. The pelican harms itself to feed blood to the three chicks. This is symbolic of Christ who sacrificed his blood to save his followers. Louisiana is historically a Catholic state based on its French and Spanish roots.
NOTE: The Dodgers will win next year. The San Diego Padres are still hanging on this year. UPDATE: Eventually, the Houston Astros beat the Phillies in the 2022 World Series after the Phillies eliminated the Padres 4 games to 1 in their series.
In the meantime, I would surely enjoy some pie...
My warning to all of the dummies and critics in the world: you do not eat the whole pan, you big dummy.
I was in a movie with Paula, DEJA VU. I know that I mention this occasionally. I am watching one of her other movies right now and that is what made me bring it up. I was an extra in Deja Vu; Paula was one of the Stars. We eyeballed each other on the set. I tweeted her to ask her out after she and her husband, singer Robin Thicke, broke up. I tweeted her to ask if she wanted me to escort her to the Oscars.
And now, here is Heidi Klum in the picture below. I had posted a video of Heidi here also, but I took it down today. In the video, she was “too sexy for herself.” 🙂 I heard a comedian say that onstage once. He said that he was too sexy for himself.
Then, here goes O.J. running off his mouth how Deshaun Watson’s six-game suspension for molesting 27 women was a long enough punishment. My opinion is that Deshaun should have been suspended for the whole season.
My current take on the New Orleans Saints: I turned my TV off Sunday in the 4th Quarter after 2 horrific referee calls. I cannot take it anymore! P.S. I have the hat on in the picture below because my head got cold overnight.
