    Missy’s Top Three Jerky Treats

    Let’s face it, we drop more money than necessary on our pets because they’re our babies. Between the treats and the toys (and so much more), it’s enough to ask your Boss for a raise. When your Boss inquires about the reason for such raise, simply inform him or her that without such raise your pet will starve as it needs a life of luxury. Kidding, of course, don’t start that conversation! It can only lead to living in a cardboard box. All jokes aside, times are tough but we try our best to keep our pets happy and well fed. Missy’s favorite treats consist of jerky and more jerky.…

    St. John: Group Homes and Halfway Houses

    Group homes and halfway houses can be good or bad, pending how they are run and whether or not the homes/houses cause outside trouble. If you live in St. John the Baptist Parish you might have noticed a lot of community issues as of late. Some community issues include that of group homes and or halfway houses of the bad kind. Complaints are being made but changes can’t be seen. One question remains, is St. John the Baptist Parish not handling the issues or is the State not handling the issues? If the issues are being handled but the issues are becoming increasingly worse… what needs to be done? Due…

    Desktop and Laptop Quality Has Gone Downhill

    Hey Techies, have you been feeling the heat and complications of current laptops and desktops? I always purchase HP laptops because in the long run it’s been more budget friendly for higher customizable specs during “good” sales. However, in recent years I’ve noticed a big downgrade in quality for not only HP but other brands as well. Laptops are much thinner and lighter. With the lightness also comes poorly constructed cases that damage easily and screws that don’t stay in place sometimes. Let’s not forget the fact that you can’t easily swap out batteries like once before. The pin inside of the laptop for the charger is also so thin…

    Covid-19 and Politics: The Great Divide

    Covid-19 has been around for a long time at this point with no intentions of disappearing any time soon. It has caused many arguments between people. Political issues have been around indefinitely with no intentions of disappearing any time soon. It has also caused many arguments between people. Not to mention the media has played a huge part on both of those topics. Is the media good or bad? Note: Everything is strictly opinionated. Covid-19 and political issues over recent years has created a great divide between most people. Are you Democrat? Are you Republican? Do you agree with my beliefs? Are you vaccinated? Are you not vaccinated? Do you…

    How Many Followers Is Enough

    Shout out to Joey Thurman for inspiring this post! Great all around person and fitness guru. Be sure to give him a follow! Many people struggle with getting a large fan following, whether it be on your blog, Instagram, Twitter, etc. Some feel that if an account doesn’t have at least 10,000 followers then it isn’t a good account. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. The truth is that there are many amazing accounts out there will a small fan base. Those with a small fan base haven’t reached “celebrity status” but have a lot of loyal followers. My Instagram account has close to 400 people following with some…

    St. John the Baptist Drainage Side Effect

    St. John the Baptist parish is working on creating better drainage due to flooding issues. Lately flooding has been taking place with typical Louisiana rain storms as opposed to Hurricane weather, which is experienced constantly in the deep southern states. According to an article on sjbparish.gov, weather permitting, the drainage project should have a timeline of 4 to 6 months from start to finish (source).  There is an issue, however, that is concerning quite a few residents. As heavy machinery withdraws dirt and debris from the canals the dirt is spilling into many backyards. The dirt is dumped on the ground behind multiple backyards, creating a mountain of mud that…

    Preakness Surprise

    This is the first year that I actually paid attention to the Kentucky Derby, etc. and placed bets. The first round didn’t work out so well for me. The second round almost ended well. I bet on Rombauer. Seeing him speed past Midnight Bourbon and Medina Spirit was a thrill and threw me out of my seat when he was so far behind! I’m so happy for Rombauer but my bet on Rombauer was an exacta box bet, which means it didn’t work out for me winning anything. Epic fail! Up next is Belmont. We are about 3 weeks away from the final race(s) of this once a year event.…

    Ten Mishaps During Covid Quarantine

    Covid-19 isn’t fun and we can talk about symptoms, what people are doing and aren’t doing, treatments and long term issues until we are blue in the face. How about something to lighten that “covid mood”? Here is a list of 10 awful yet amusing things that have happened to me while dealing with covid. In an attempt to stay away from anyone else in the house I washed my covid clothes at night. Unfortunately, that also resulted in some clothes being dyed dark blue. Isolating to one room is often the best thing to do when infected with covid. However, a power strip that is full of electronics plugged…
