So I already have 1001 reasons to love living in New are 75000 more reasons to love this place.

new orleans: Clainborne area starting to grow exponentially - 03/06/08 01:04 AM
Thinking about the next hot growth area in New Orleans?  Well...with a combination of residential and commercial...with a great potential for immediete growth take a look at the specific area bordering Claiborne to St Charles, from Napoleon going West.  With the expansion of the hospital at Napoleon, and a new doctors office in the process of being finished, I see this area as ripe for opportunity no matter whether you are looking at residential deals or commercial.
There are some large residences that are going for very reasonable dollars along after effect of an older generation leaving...leaving wide open an opportunity … (0 comments)

new orleans: I am not a lifelong resident of New Orleans, and proud of it and my adopted city - 03/02/08 05:26 AM

You see...being a lifelong resident just says one never took the effort to live anywhere else, and your frame of reference is limited to living / working in the same place your entire life. 
About myself, I was born north across the pond, then went south, then back north finally to the place I call home...New Orleans... the essence of the best of all … (0 comments)

new orleans: I did not blow myself up, and I saw another 3.5 minutes response time - 02/08/08 12:47 PM
So my business partner and me were out early this morning determined to tear out all the plumbing in one of our buildings in 4 hours or less.  So with generator, and tools in hand, I crawled under 100 yrs of history making my way past miscellaneous glass, bones, blacksmiths square nails from back in the day, etc and proceeded to cut, while my friend pulled out the cut pieces of galvanized, coppered, lead whatever.
