Beloved Louisiana Fish Fry Company Now Owned By Group in New York

I just don't know what to think about this. On one hand, Louisiana Fish Fry products have never steered me wrong. Their incredibly extensive line of spices, marinades, boils, fried fish coating, and more have been there for pretty much every shortcut I have ever needed when it comes to bringing the flavors of Louisiana alive in the kitchen. On the other hand, I just learned that this tried-and-true cooking-sidekick is now owned by a firm in New York! This doesn't exactly scream gumbo to me:

George Harrison, ‘All Things Must Pass – 50th Anniversary: Super Deluxe': Album Review

Paul McCartney had gotten there earlier. So had Ringo Starr and even John Lennon with some singles. And technically speaking so had George Harrison. But with 1970's All Things Must Pass, the Quiet Beatle finally released his first proper solo album, a warts-and-all three-record declaration of independence that corralled a career's worth of frustrations and ambitions into its 105-minute running time.

Legendary LSU Coach Skip Bertman Tests Positive for COVID

Just when we thought we were moving forward, it seems like we are taking a step back. As Louisiana is experiencing another surge in coronavirus cases, Governor John Bel Edwards issued a statewide mask mandate for all citizens in our state on Monday. It's disappointing, for sure. And we are continuing to see cases of people who were actually vaccinated for COVID, and have gotten the virus. Honestly, it's not the norm, but is still pretty scary. Especially for those of us who are trying to do the right thing, and protect ourselves, our families, and our friends.

$2 Million Louisiana Lotto Ticket Sold In Kinder

I think Kinder was the only place I didn't buy a Lotto ticket in Louisiana. When I saw the jackpot over a million dollars a few weeks ago I knew I had to get in on the action. I'm fairly new to playing the lottery game, only playing a handful of times in my life. The hardest I every played was when the Powerball or Megamillions jackpot, I can't remember which one, a few years ago was over a billion dollars.
