Crazy Arrest

http://www.nola.com/crime/index.ssf/2014/04/man_cries_foul_a...

A River Ridge man seen being arrested by a Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office deputy in a video that has gone viral on Facebook said he is the victim of an unlawful arrest. Donrell Breaux, 26, also questioned the relationship between the responding deputy and the neighbor with which he had a dispute.

"I knew he (the deputy) was a personal friend (of the neighbor)," Breaux said, "and I thought it was an unlawful arrest. I don't have to submit to an unlawful arrest."

The new 2014 Greenhouse

Hopefully the pecan trees start blooming pretty soon. Then it will be time to start planting. In the meantime, this is the scene here at the house. Roughly 750 vegetable plants and 4500 flowers growing strong.

Making Ghost Pepper Andouille fresh from the Bayou

Thought I would share my second batch of Ghost Pepper Andouille with my family and friends here at the DP. The last two pictures I added a few chipotle ghost peppers to enhance the look and flavors for friends. They like their heat.

Michael, You Screwed me and now you have to help me! (LoL!)

My friend you gave me the wheat belly books and now I am totally screwed. I have Susan on board and all is moving along quite well EXCEPT!

You or our DP family must teach me a recipe for making a ROUX or my gumbo is totally screwed.

It is your fault Michael (LOL) for I am a prize wining gumbo chef. I need all my (DP) family to start making a roux with all the alternative mixes. I need your help with this more than you know.

I will be competing in about four months and I need the perfect mixture. I am NOT going to stop the Wheat Belly prescription for I have Susan on board.

An argument FOR pirating media

I need to preface this post by briefly talking about what a torrent site is. If you already know, then skip to the next paragraph. A torrent site (or bittorrent site) is one that allows for the pirating or free download of media. Movies, games, photos, documents, books, etc… Whatever media can be turned into digital form is most likely on a torrent site somewhere waiting to be downloaded by users. The argument against a torrent site is that it circumvents copyright laws.

Observation of bees and pressure treated wood

This summer I observed paper wasps scraping wood off the unpainted pressure treated porch railings for their nest building.

Over the course of the summer I saw a difference in the bees. The off-spring were smaller and a different color; over all light redish brown with less distinct markings of the parents' black and yellow.

Three weeks after these off-spring started showing up, the nests were no longer active.

Wasp are at the bottom of my personal list of friendly bees, but observing the changes alerted me to give more attention to unpainted pressure treated wood.

Time to Get Off Facebook (and Keep Your Kids off Snapchat!)

For those who don’t know, Snapchat is a program designed to allow its users, predominately teenagers, to send photos of themselves from their smartphones that self destruct after a certain period of time, say 10 seconds for example. Why would someone use a program like Snapchat? Plain and simple: people use it to send inappropriate photos of each other to each other with allegedly no risk of the photos resurfacing - we all know what I’m talking about here.

Facebook recently offered to acquire Snapchat for 3 BILLION (with a B) dollars. Why?

How Does Ron Paul do it?

He never gets angry. He never makes it personal. He's always against the system, never the individual. When debating Bernanke in congress he was always so gracious. When talking about Mitt Romney he praised Mitt as a person but noted the political differences between them.

I just get angry.

How does he do it?

At What Point is Using Lethal Force Towards the Government Justified?

Last week’s tragic incident unfortunately left one dead and others wounded at LAX, not something you want to read about the morning after while sipping coffee. As much disdain as I have for the cruel TSA I don’t believe an agent deserved to murdered. And if the reports were even slightly reliable coming from the mainstream media, unfortunately that’s exactly what happened – murder.

Let’s talk about cruel government employees in a larger context, however.

Peter Schiff: Friend or Foe?

Don't get me wrong - I agree with 99 (if not 100) percent of everything Schiff stands for and believes. I would've given anything to see him win that senate seat a couple years back. BUT I also have to realize he owns Euro Pacific Capital, an investment firm that promotes investing through precious metals and other currencies which he is often touting. I guess the question I often have is - at what point is he trying to sell me something? I'm not hating on Schiff, just being cautious that's all.
