I know we have the Fleur-de-lis Ambassadors in New Orleans. Now picture this – a chatty lady waiting for the stinkin’ Dumbo ride for a half-hour. She chats about Louisiana and New Orleans and how wonderful it is. A woman said she went there last year with her kids and fell in love with it! She didn’t think Mardi Gras was appropriate for children- as most people, including myself thought. When I tell her my kids went to 11 parades this year – she was planning on going home to book vacation plans for next Mardi Gras.

Think about it – we bitch, complain yada yada yada about this & that. The truth is – aside for our current political scars and all the negative PR – LOUISIANA AND NEW ORLEANS are FANTASTIC!!! Now I need to somehow work out some formula where I get $1 for each positive thing I say about Louisiana – I’d be rich!!!!

I guess if you don’t have anything nice to say – don’t say anything and if something bothers you so much – problem solve and work to fix it! My 2 cents for what it is worth!
