October 24th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Lafayette will soon join the ranks of Tesla-friendly cities like its fellow cities of Lake Charles, Baton Rouge, and Alexandria.

October 19th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

The Texas State Fair is here! For those of us (I say us because I lived in both places) in North Texas and North Louisiana, October is a time of revelry.

September 21st, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Tesla's New Orleans service center may soon be here. Right now, it's in "coming soon" mode on the Tesla website.

It's creeping towards that time of year for Eastern and Gulf states in the U.S. to prepare for hurricane season. Having lived through many Florida hurricanes, experiencing the water (everywhere) and the wind clearing out stagnant energy, the atmosphere is refreshing — if houses remain and people are fine.

New Orleans — “Biking Boomtown” — Doubled Rate Of Bicycle Commuters In 10 Years

April 21st, 2017 | by Cynthia Shahan

New Orleans rivals and surpasses other America cities in so many ways. Music first comes to mind — oh, to be the birthplace of Jazz — but there's also the city's French and Spanish Creole architecture, its cross-cultural and multilingual heritage, cuisine, annual celebrations such as the colorful, magical Mardi Gras. New Orleans also deserves praise for propelling itself so rapidly ahead in terms of transport — doing what it takes other cities many years to do
