[quote]The chapter was under pressure from local alumni, DKE National, and LSU. They didn't stand a chance and didn't have a choice.

This is really interesting to me because I've always compared Caddo and EBR, having grown up in Caddo and then lived in EBR as a parent.

[quote]Once Caddo Magnet was established years ago, the neighborhood public schools like Byrd and Southwood have suffered. [/quote]
Byrd is in no way suffering. It was a dump when they started Magnet. All the white people in East Shreveport were lying to get their kids into Captain Shreve. They a...

I am truly sad to hear this news. Like many on here, I corresponded with him via email for a while. He was a kind and funny guy, and a fellow Shreveporter.
I'll miss his strong convictions and his sense of humor. RIP Charles

[quote]Winters aren't that bad, plus there are outdoor things to do that time of year. It's a hell of a lot better than a Chicago winter. [/quote]
I agree. We don't get a ton of snow in town. It's very manageable. Winter is not bad, it's just looong. May is a sad time.

I'm going to the Cooks in April. 1 week on Aitutaki and 1 week on Rarotonga. We're renting houses rather than go the resort route. I don't want to share my space with other people's children.

I've made boudin twice and had similar results with the texture from the grinder. Next time we will reserve part (maybe half?) of the mixture and hand chop it before we stuff the casings.
