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?

Pelicans: Wait ‘Til Next Year

If you turn off any Hornets game with 5 or 6 minutes left you would have seen a great game. The Hor”PELI”cants were beating the “hated” Lakers by 21 points near the end of the 3rd Quarter, but lost 108-102 in the end. Coach Monty Williams SUCKS! Almost every game, the Pelicants have a large lead into the final minutes of the game ..until that terrible coach, Monty, starts coaching us to a horrific loss. What a genius! NOTtttttt!!!!

I Wuv the Lakers

Ferdie@ferdiewerdie2013 Playoffs NOTE: this was posted in 2013. The LAKERS were swept by the Spurs that year. The Hornet were last in their division that year. The Pelicans were last in their division this year. The Pelicans will be last in their division forever, unless they get a new coach. I will WUV the Lakers before the Pelicans climb from the cellar as long as they keep this “bottom-feeder” coach.

@Hornets >>The doggone #Lakers have plopped their butts in a seat to the #bigdance. Plenty games are left, but they sat their big butts at the #8thSeed position for now. If these guys can hold onto a seat to the dance, I believe that they will be dangerous. Look how far they’ve come this year.

Why did I address this tweet to the Hornets? Because they have disappointed me very much this year. So, I might just become a Lakers fan for the rest of the year. What choice do I have? Also, I do not plan to wait around all off-season just to watch the Pelicans have another sub-par season next year. I do not trust Hornets/Pelicans coach Monty Williams with the family jewels. His decision-making has been very suspect this year. In my opinion he is a lousy son-of-a-beoyonggg.

Thus, I will begin cheering for the dang Lakers in order for me to maintain my sanity. What could be worst? Besides that, if the Pelicans hold onto coach Monty and have another lousy year next year, I believe that it will be years before the Pelicans become truly meaningful in the NBA. I am a N’Awlins boy, but I have to respect how the Lakers slid their tails into a party seat after how their season started off. Remember that both the Lakers and the Brooklyn Nets cut their losses early in the season and hired new coaches. Now, both teams are headed to the playoffs. hahaha >>to the New Orleans HorPelicants.
