re: Clippers unveil new logo - BRich
[quote]Apparently the three things at the top of the logo are stacked sails on a clipper ship, not decks on a cruise ship. Which makes sense, but I get the confusion considering not many know what a clipper ship actually is while everyone knows what a cruise ship is.[/quote] Which is why it is...

re: Santa Fe Trip in early March - BRich
Georgia O'Keefe Museum. Cross of the Martyrs/ Ft. Marcy for a nice overlook. Short drive to the east on I-25: Glorieta Battlefield Trail, site of one of the few Civil War battles in the West. It was the battle referenced in "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly"....

re: Why do people travel with giant suitcases? - BRich
All depends on length of trip and time of year. If I'm on vacation, I am not wasting time washing clothes. So if I am in Europe or Australia/New Zealand for a week and a half (like I was last year), I need 10-11 outfits. That takes up space. And if it's winter or colder, need to pack long...

re: Pictures from days gone by.... - BRich
What's cool about this is that most of the seawall is buried under the sand beach now. If you park in a parking area along Highway 90 and walk down to the water, you have to go down what was the top 2-4 steps of the old seawall to the sand beach......

re: Things of “back in the day” - BRich
[quote]Saturday mornings were like having a miniature Christmas morning each week because the only other time you may get to watch any cartoons would be IF you got home from school early enough in the afternoons (3:30-4:30pm), depending on the local stations.

re: New Orleans ZAPPS Potato Chips - BRich
[quote]Bought a bag of LSU chips a few years back as a joke but ended up having to eat them. Don’t remember the flavor but gd they were fricking amazing or I was really hungry.[/quote] That was the "Tigertators", offcially licensed by LSU. They were the Cajun Crawtator flavor in a different pack...

re: Underrated movies - BRich
[b][u]Nighthawks[/u][/b] Although it came out in 1981, I still consider it the last great 70s movie. Stallone (with long hair, a cool beard and aviator glasses) and Billy Dee Williams as NY undercover street cops. Rutger Hauer as an international terrorist on the run who makes it to the Big Ap...

Not sure who the "Bulldogs" are but they certainly weren't St. Martin's Episcopal in Metairie. St. Martin's teams have been the SAINTS since well before 1981; pretty sure they've always been the Saints....
