 Good Morning NOLA! Happy Thursday!  You made through hump day the weekend is looming closer. It’s a little cloudy again this morning with sun as the day progresses. Our high today is back in the upper seventies with a chance for some showers later this evening.  They should be moving through rather quickly and shuld not impact the parades running this weekend. We will still see the temps dropping slightly making our evenings pleasant. I took a stroll with a friend to dinner last night at Maximo’s.  There was just a light coolness on the air.  We can count our blessings fo rthis springlike weather we have been experiencing.  What a treat!  I am looking forward to the weekend and the rest of the Mardi Gras season.  Here’s hoping you have a simply terrific Thursday.  I am on the set of Looper again for the next two days but don’t worry, I’ll be around.

I’ll see you in NOLA!

 Good Morning NOLA!  I’m thinking it’s going to be another great day.  No rain in the forecast for today. Just a little cloudy with our high near the eighty degree mark.  There will be a few isolated thunderstorms in the evening on Thursday but should move out before the weekend parades get here.  Our overnight lows will be in the sixties.  All in all we really can’t complain.  Next week may see us back in the sixties for our daytime temps which is a little more like our usual for this time of year.  What a great Mardi Gras outlook.  I am really enjoying my time by getting out and about and soaking up some vitiamin D.  Even the evenings are wonderful so make the most of this weather. I had a nice evening with friends over at the House Of Blues listening to My Graveyard Jaw and watching a screening of The Cure for the Crash, a feature film by Brian Paul.  You should check both out if you have a chance.  So get up, get moving and I’ll see you in NOLA!

New Orleans, Louisiana Leroux. yes it does include 2 clips from Finding Nemo that I’ve never been in Mississippi by the time it was necessary to be done. In addition, the miniature pinscher that appears in the video at the point of the song “sassy style that make you mad” is named Sassy … so I thought it would be ideal for the part

New Orleans Saints Off Season Update Wide Receivers

New Orleans Saints Off Season Update Wide Receivers

New Orleans Saints Off Season Update Wide Receivers

When you look at the stats for the New Orleans Saints offense you think WOW they must have some league leading receivers. Not really. Marques Colston was 15th in the league in receiving yards with 1,023 in the regular season for the New Orleans Saints. The next receiver to show up on the list for the New Orleans Saints is Lance Moore at number 38 with 763 yards. This says a lot when the 3rd ranked offense in passing only has 1 receiver in the top 15 and no one else in the top 35. Drew Brees does a great job of spreading the ball around to his receivers.

So that begs the question “Do the New Orleans Saints NEED to do anything about a wide receiver”?

The simple answer is probably not. Lance Moore will be a free agent at the end of the season. Lance has already tried the free agency route. He will test the waters but last time he went through this exercise he ended up right back where he started. Still if the New Orleans Saints lose Moore it is not a huge loss. Robert Meachem and Devery Henderson are under contract and can easily fill Moore’s shoes. This is a fairly deep draft at the wide receiver position so the New Orleans Saints could pick up a mid round project. When you look at the type of wide receiver that works well with the New Orleans Saints it is someone who is not selfish, works hard and is aware that if you run your route correctly you have a good chance to get the ball if you are open.

The New Orleans Saint will likely make an effort to resign Marques Colston to a long term deal prior to the end of the 2012 season. This will lock in their most consistent wide receiver and set the tone for rewarding the type of wide receiver the New Orleans Saints are looking for.

Next we will take a look at the Tight End position for the New Orleans Saints in the 2011 draft and off season picture.

Good Morning NOLA!  Is it cold enough for you?  Just wait.  I am not in the least bit jealous of my movies buddies who are booked to work to the rest of this week. I am perfectly happy to stay close to home for a few days. It is VERY windy today.  If you are out and about in the CBD, you know it is even worse when it comes roaring between the buildings.  The low today is mid forties with a drop back in the thirties tonight. Just a minimal rain chance today but tomorrow we are looking at  a seventy percent chance and it won’t get out of thirties.  I think I will find something to do at home.  Friday is not much better with a ninty percent chance of rain and highs only in the low forties. The weekend will be clear but still chilly out there. The ground hog might have said early spring but it is not here yet.  Have a great day and I’ll see you in NOLA!

A Pop Up Tent Works When Things Pop Up

Pop Up Tent

As a new author I have to do what I can to market my books. I have recently started the taking my children’s books and matted prints to various markets for book signings.  While some markets are indoors, most of them or not so I decided a must have item for me is a pop up tent.  A Pop Up tent works perfectly to provide shade or keep me and my books out of the weather.  Can I tell you I love my Pop Up Tent. Ace Canopy also provides canopy tents.  This is another perfect solution for me as my son has recently started driving and our garage has no room for his car.  So canopy tent here I come. 

This is a paid post the opinions expressed about pop up tent are those of the author.
