No Smoking in New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — A NO SMOKING ban takes effect in 90 days in casinos and bars in New Orleans. Mayor Mitch Landrieu signed the ordinance today. Some smokers are not happy with the new rules.

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — PLUS, I promised my readers to install segments of my 2015 New Orleans Mardi Gras experience. I wish that I had an old-school manual typewriter because that is what we used when I started writing as a “cub reporter” for newspapers in the Big Easy. Meanwhile, I have a question for alimentary canal experts. I want to know if the potency of jalapeno peppers is still “hot, hot, hot” once it passes through the intestines?

TMI??: At the movies yesterday, I used some of those theater jalapeno peppers on a personal pan pizza. My tongue and lips burned a “good” 15 minutes. Last night at home, my stomach started burning up. In the latrine, I had a blow-out from my posterior. My rear-end burned for 7 minutes. Do peppers maintain their potent heat even after going through the digestive tract? Is that even scientifically possible?

Where does the job of the digestive tract end (finito) after doing its job? In other words, what is the final destination of the digestive tract elements after the job is done?

Digestive track EXIT.

Digestive track EXIT.

Also, I am sure that today we are all following the news about Bobbi Kristina Brown. This is so eerie!! She was found unconscious over the weekend in a bathtub very similarly to how her mother, Whitney Houston, was in 2012. As of this writing, she is still in an induced coma. Her family has been advised to expect the worst.

I have seen quite a few movies about the NAZI death camps, and read much about them. I will never get used to the horror. The world is honoring 70 years since the Russian army entered the Nazi Auschwitz death camp to end the German reign of death there. I keep all of those who suffered and died there in my prayers.

Mardi Gras in New Orleans

BOSCOVILLE (Gazette) — By the way, this is Mardi Gras weekend in New Orleans. The best of the parades and the best of the Balls are this weekend… culminating in 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.

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.

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?

Hawking #Pelican Tickets

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — The ink has not even dried yet on the #Pelicans 110 to 90 debacle vs. Orlando. Already, they are hawking tickets for tomorrow night’s game vs. Charlotte in the New Orleans Arena. They should be ashamed of themselves. When is the owner going to fire this Pelicans’ horrible coach, Monty Williams. They brought in a ton of new players, changed the team name, redid the Arena, etc. Are they going to enjoy another whole year of being in last place in their division with the same dumb coach? DUMBBB!!!

In other news, some people’s wishes may soon be answered from Washington D.C. In fact, many people across the country might consider this welcomed news. It sure would keep thousands of individuals from crowding U.S. jails for such minor offenses. Jails are already overcrowded with real criminals.

Too bad that I will not be able to go to the Songwriters Festival this week. I have previous engagements which preclude my visit.

UPDATE: I just read that the storm in the Philippines caused flooding up to 50 ft. high. That is unbelievable.

Never Take Points Off The Board

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — Football Rule #1:  Never take points off the board. Once the #Saints scored the early field goal on Sunday, Coach Sean Payton should not have decided to erase the points and go for the touchdown after the penalty (especially running with Mark Ingram). Keep those 3 points on the board, and come back to fight another day. It was those 3 points which almost cost the Saints the game.  However, the #WhoDats were good enough on Sunday to overcome that early mistake.

Here below is a movie clip from TERROR NIGHTS based on my book THE TERROR SCROLLS.

Looking at the below picture might make up my mind to buy season tickets for the basketball New Orleans Pelicans.


Below is a clip of the movie Meet the Girls that I am promoting from my book Drive Women Crazy.
