This past week was busier than I expected. I enjoyed very much my "Toasting with Margarita" at Le Booze of the Royal Sonesta Hotel with Bernie Ralston of Select Brands Inc. My friends and I savored the delicious cocktails that Bernie prepared using CatDaddy - Handcrafted - Triple Distilled, One-of a-Kind Carolina Moonshine. My next one will be on Tuesday, February 8 and will feature mixologist Cheryl Charming, who has just been named Bar Manager of the Bombay Club.
My position has been that the NFL is too intelligent to fall into a long-term work stoppage.
But the Steelers-Packers game looks more and more like the last NFL game before the owners lock out their players, and there is a chance the lockout could last a while.

Nicholls State coach Charlie Stubbs believes LSU made a good hire in Steve Kragthorpe.
Stubbs had coaching stops at Memphis, Tennessee-Martin, Nevada Las Vegas and Alabama before joining Kragthrope at Tulsa.
It took the NFC coaches until the end of the third quarter to let Saints quarterback Drew Brees play in Sunday's Pro Bowl -- shocking and purely coincidental oversight by the Falcons coaching staff. Brees completed four of six passes for 68 yards in the NFC's 55-41 victory over the AFC at Honolulu.

Vince Vance, who composed a music video called “I am New Orleans” which has received tremendous acclaim since in release in August 2010 has celebrated his 39th birthday, once again.
In fact, it appears that the international showman has been celebrating the 39th annually for an unspecified number of years and counting.
