  1. My cousin runs Nottaway Plantation now, handles wedding, parties, etc. Between my relatives, the Landrys and Ourso's, they have a bunch of that area around there.
  2. My cousin let me know her husband was on this episode with Troy Landry, he's a landry also, Camille Landry. Camille and his family have been Sugar Cane Farmers for years. His wife Rhonda is my first cousin. They live in the Bayou Goula area. When they were in the cane planting season, once the land was tilled/turned over, get a good rain. Walking over the cane fields, you would find everything from Arrow Heads (This is the Home of the Bayou Goula Indians), to items from the Civil War. I have it recorded, starting to watch now.
  3. You don't need to show it while driving, only when stopped.
  4. A couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things. During a check-up, the doctor tells them that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember .. Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair 'Want anything while I'm in the kitchen?' he asks. 'Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?' 'Sure.' 'Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?' she asks. 'No, I can remember it.' 'Well, I'd like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so as not to forget it?' He says, 'I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.' 'I'd also like whipped cream. I'm certain you'll forget that, write it down?' she asks. Irritated, he says, 'I don't need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream - I got it, for goodness sake!' Then he toddles into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes, the old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs. She stares at the plate for a moment. 'Where's my toast?'
  5. FYI: Discovery Channel fast-tracks Thai cave rescue documentary NICK ROMANO•@NICKAROMANO POSTED ON JULY 10, 2018 AT 5:00PM EDT Discovery Channel will debut the first documentary feature (of what looks to be the start of many more to come from Hollywood) chronicling the rescue of Thailand’s Wild Boars soccer team from a flooded cave. Operation Thai Cave Rescue will be an hourlong television special airing Friday, July 13 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery Channel. This will be followed by an airing on Saturday, July 14 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Science Channel. The documentary “unpacks the human and scientific drama behind one of the most difficult and heart-palpitating rescues attempted in human history,” an official description from Discovery reads. “With exclusive early access to men and women — including family members — who have been living and breathing the events, Operation Thai Cave Rescue focuses on the triumph of the human spirit and the extraordinary scientific and technological innovations used to complete this miracle rescue.” Twelve boys from the Wild Boars soccer team and their coach found themselves trapped in a cave in Thailand on June 23 when flood water cut them off deep inside the cave. After 18 days, all members were finally rescued thanks to an international cooperative effort, including 19 divers and assistance from the Thai Navy SEALs. The rescue mission resulted in the death of a former Navy SEAL, according to BBC News.
  6. Next trip into BTR, I'll see if we can do lunch with Calvin. Pokies Friday might be good with the Lunch Bunch.

One of his brothers owns Cam Motion, here in BTR, they ship camshafts all over the world. His other two brothers own the Acura, Infiniti and Subaru Dealerships in BTR and Lafayette. Good family.

  11. Note: Calvin is one of my relatives, he and his company were the developers of this App. "The app is compatible with both iOS and Android devices, says Envoc President Calvin Fabre, whose company produced the app and is working in partnership with OMV and State Police."
  12. Louisiana’s new digital driver’s license App is available to the public. It will enable an image of a physical Louisiana license to be displayed on cell phones ensuring that Louisiana drivers who have their cell phones will always have access to their license. LA Wallet was created under Louisiana law of Act 625 by Baton Rouge Rep. Ted James. “Most people never leave home without their smartphone and with this App, they will never be without their driver’s license,” said Gov. Edwards. “State Police requested a “hands-off” and “no-touch” procedure that would not require them to hold a driver’s phone. Rep. Ted James who authored the legislation that led to the creation of this App is to be commended for his work as well as the team of Louisianans who designed it.” The LA Wallet was jointly designed by Louisiana State Police, Department of Public Safety and the Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV). It was developed by Envoc, a Louisiana-based software development firm. The entire development team is made up of graduates of Louisiana universities. LA Wallet is the first digital driver’s license app to be fully launched in the United States. While there are other apps in development, LA Wallet is the only app with a fully-functioning, open to the public version in the Apple App store. LA Wallet is free to download, but an in-app purchase of $5.99 activates a citizen’s license or ID for legal acceptance. The digital license is valid for the life of the user’s license issuance. Once a user’s physical license expires, they must renew their license with the OMV and purchase a new digital license through LA Wallet. “OMV is proud to make this App available to the public,” said OMV Commissioner Karen St. Germain. “The safety of the app has been tested with all industry-standard security measures and with pin number protection it is protected from anyone accessing a user’s license information. Also, it does not track nor ask to track the user’s location at any time. If a user’s phone is lost or stolen, the user can simply log in to online portal to unlink their license information from their mobile device.” The user’s license information is always up-to-date. If a user updates their address or any other information before their license expires; the app will notify them that something has changed. They will not need to purchase a new license. Instead, they only need to unlink then relink their license.

  15. Antoine Duplantis’ injury in his first and only game playing for USA Baseball’s Collegiate National Team has prompted LSU and Team USA coach Paul Mainieri to make a call to the bench. Mainieri said in a text message that LSU rising sophomore outfielder Daniel Cabrera arrived Thursday morning from his stint with the Bourne Braves of the Cape Cod League. Cabrera was scheduled to be in the lineup for Team USA’s 5 p.m. series opener Thursday against Chinese Taipei at the USA Baseball training complex in Cary, North Carolina. Duplantis rammed into the outfield wall Tuesday night in Cary, trying to track down a fly ball in a game against USA Baseball’s Under-18 national team. Mainieri told Baseball America on Wednesday that Duplantis likely suffered a slight separation to the AC joint at the top of his left shoulder.
