 Good Morning Nola!  I am so glad our weekend is finally here.  I just spent two fun but long days on the set of Looper, a futuristic movie starring Bruce Willis set in the New Orleans CBD.  Iam ready to get back out in the Quarter and enjoy some Mardi gras festivities.  It’s partly cloudy this morning with our high of seventy-five.  There is only a twenty percent chance of rain today and tomorrow.  Monday will bring with it a fifty-fifty chance so I would keep the umbrella handy.  This mild weather sure has the people out and about in the French Quarter in droves.  Parades and normal Quarter fun is on my agenda for the weekend.  There is a strong possibility that I will be catching flying Mardi Gras beads in the near future also.  Well my running buddies are waiting so I need to wrap this up so I can get out there.  Y’all have fun and I hope you catch lots of beads too. 

I’ll see you in NOLA!

 Good Morning NOLA!  It is looking like sunny days ahead at least for about a week.  There is only a ten percent chance for rain today so I wouldn’t worry about that.  The high is only in the low seventies for today but gradually warming the rest of week leaving us with upper seventies for our day time temps.  Seventy-seven seems to be the number for the next few days.  The next chance of showers for the Big Easy is in the early part of next week so enjoy this while you can.  I am seeing people out in the flower beds and yards all over the city.  I hope they get their work done early so they can make to my book signings this weekend.  I will be at Palmer Park on Saturday for the CDP fundraiser and back at the 1850’s House Store on Jackson Square on Sunday.  Come get your signed copies of “If I Were A French Quarter Rat” and “ILove You Bigger Than The Sky!” written by me, Sharon Denise Talbot and illustrated by my daughter, Laura Ashley Talbot.  I hope to see y’all there.  If not I’m sure I will see you in NOLA!

What do i have to do to be able to have a palm reading and art stand on bourbon street in New Orleans, Louisia?

i want to be able to read palms and sell my art work on bourbon street but i know that it is illegal to just set up shop on the street… does anybody know how i can be able to do that legally?

Those are done in Jackson Square by many people. Perhaps just ask one of the numerous vendors where they got their permit.


Do some Hurricane Katrina survivors think we owe them rent for the rest of their lives?

Hurricane Katrina

Hurricane Katrina

Hurricane Katrina

Hurricane Katrina occurred in 2005 and people are still getting rent subsidies. Shouldn’t they have moved along by now, it  is 2011?

Were they a government dependent class before the Hurricane – is this just a continuation of the entitlement mentality?
http://www.nola.com/news/index.ssf/2009/02/end_of_rent_help_is_a_disaster.html
“End of rent help is a disaster for many Hurricane Katrina victims”

Hurricane Katrina is creating a feeling of entitlement.

yes, yes and yes…. we reap what we sow… in this case, a Big Brother (government) Will Take Care Of You mindset… and that passes from generation to generation. It’s not doing anyone any favors, since people don’t use their God-given talents and skills to provide for themselves and their families and build a future of which they can be proud. It’s actually an insult… but that’s not how it’s perceived.

Where can I find a grant for planting trees in New Orleans?

Where can I find grants to plant trees in New Orleans?
I want to revitalize a playground in New Orleans. The area is very poor and coming back slowly that I am considering. Due the families having low budgets, I was thinking of planting apple, orange and pecan trees in the park over the benches. I know the trees would bare fruit and the kids would be able to have a healthy snack. Any ideas of who I could ask for finacing on the trees and materials need to plant them?
ANy ideas on playground funders would be great too.

Start with Parkway Partners, since they already work with NORA on maintaining parks and parkways. Also, try Hike For Katreena, as they have a similar goal to yours.

Good luck!

 Good Morning NOLA!  We are waking up to another spring like day today.  Cloudy but warm, with our high at seventy-two or so.  The days have been abosolutely fabulous with slightly cooler temperatures in the evening.  Last night was perfect with a cool breeze off the river as I walked to Canal Place for an early feature of the King’s Speech with friends.  Afterwards we took  a quick car ride to Chickie Wah Wah’s to catch John Cleary.  All I can say is “wow”.  There is no rain in the forecast until Friday and then only isolated showers.  This is wonderful news for all those Mardi Gras visitors in and around the city, as well as for locals too.  I’m sure this wonderful weather will attract more people to come on down to the Big Easy.  I have another fun filled French Quarter day planned for myself.  A little business and a little pleasure, you can’t ask for much more than that.
