Is the VOO program hiring commercial fisherman, first?

June 2, 2010

This story from Bayou, Le Batre, Ala. really started the day off.

“At issue, according to those there, is that recreational boat owners are being hired before those who make their livelihoods solely from fishing local waters.”

Evidently, BP’s VOO program is in question, “We are adjusting the vessels of opportunity program to give priority to commercial vessels and fisherman.”

There’s a post in the Louisiana Sportsman forum stating that boat captains could be paid $35/hr just to drive the boat. I wonder what that’s all about.

Where can I buy Mardi Gras tickets?

January 19, 2008

NOLA has the best answer to that one, unless you’d like to contribute to my pay pal — I’ll find a ticket for you somewhere and I’ll even throw in a King Cake.

King Cakes are my downfall. Someone made the mistake of leaving me alone with a Raspberry Creme coffee cake the other day. Then when they came home later that afternoon, they had the nerve to ask what happened. Well, it usually starts off with just one itty bitty peice and then, before you know it…your looking at the bottom of the pan. You must’ve turned your back on it. I can imagine one of those cats from icanhasacheezeburger got it. The best ones are usually homemade.

I has a sad.  I can't jump on that King Cake up there!

I can’t eat that King Cake!

Why do FEMA employees read Louisiana Questions?

November 5, 2007

Periodically, I review my referrals. You’ll never guess who surfed into Louisiana Questions…FEMA. My last post Oct. 26th provoked some comments from a FEMA contracted employee who agreed that people still need help in the aftermath of Katrina, more than two years later. All fake news conferences aside…

What’s FEMA doing surfing my blog?

FEMA surfing my blog?!!

The page FEMA viewed was What’s in da news for da parish in august 2007 when the news reported formaldehyde poisoning from FEMA trailers. Recently, I was informed that some people or organizations are selling FEMA trailers in the Northwest. I believe there was a 1-800 number posted on my website during the formaldehyde hubub so that concerned people could call FEMA with questions about their trailers. Why else would FEMA be surfing my blog? Ideas anyone?
