LOL, Hey Bill, the Google toolbar kicks Yahoo's IMO but, I have been known to be VERY misguided. huge LOL

RE: RE: Huddie "Leadbelly" Ledbetter

Well, the success of a search has a lot to do with the (accidental) relationship of the search terms and the search engine.

In my case, I happen to be used to the way that Yahoo thinks...for better or for worse...

Travel Tips for Shreveport

Shreveport Tip

by haimee

My fondest memory was the snow. I don't remember ever seeing so much snow in my life aside from on the ski slopes. We made the most of it too, making a small snowman, snowangels and a fierce snowball fight too.

My First Visit to Shreveport

by keeweechic

I went over for the first time to Shreveport to spend Thanksgiving with family. It was a quick visit and we tried to cram a lot of mileage into only day that we had for me to do some sightseeing. The city itself wasn't so impressive (from what I quickly saw) but the riverboats were really a sight lined up on the Bossier side of the Red River. What I really enjoyed were the Lakes (Caddo and Cross). I had never been around swamp lakes and found the bald cypress trees stretching out of the water with their bare limbs and reflections in the stillness of the water, quite a sight to behold. Stretching back into the arms of the lake, there was a distinct eeriness as what sun there was merged into grey skies. Spending my first Thanksgiving with a family atmosphere. The weather turned ghastly on the day but there was enough fun and warmth inside that it didn't matter. So much great food too!! - boy the Americans can eat:-)).... oh yes, and discovering Sugar Daddy's (the candy)

Louisiana State Oil and Gas Museum

by grandmaR

The exhibit starts off with the exhibits of the local Amerindian population (the Caddo Indians) with relics and arrowheads dating back 10,000 years. There is are many artifacts including a wooden flow line pipe, an electric motor patented in 1899, a steam-driven fluid pump, pipe tongs and other equipment and there are dioramas depicting the life of early oil town workers including a bar and house. There is also a large collection of early boomtown and gusher photographs. There was also an exhibit on clearing log jams with a mock-up of a dynamite igniter (where you push down the handle to set off the dynamite). Bob pushed it and it really went off with a bang and startled him.

In another part of the museum, the Caddo Indian Room, features Caddo Indian. Outside, you can visit the oil derrick and historic boomtown buildings just outside the museum.

Also you can see the previous home of the museum which was in the city's old Kansas City Southern railroad depot where the museum was when it was initially formed by a group of citizens in 1969. They wanted to highlight the historic importance of the town as the site of the 1911 "Ferry No. 1" well, which was one of the world's first over-water discovery wells.

Great Buffets at the Casinos

by keeweechic about Village Square Buffet

This is in the Horseshoe Hotel and Casino. We checked out a few casino buffets before deciding on this one. Hollywood was very good, Casino Magic looked awful. The buffet was pretty extensive - huge bowls of shrimp along with Italian, Chinese, ribs, steak, chicken steaks, a good salad bar and vegetable dishes, not to mention a very good desert bar. Or just have some ice cream and put all your own toppings on it. Service was also very good. If you are a senior citizen, let them know and you will get 10% off.

Riverwalk Park

by jholley534

Here's a picture from the Riverwalk Park that sits beside the Barnwell Art & Garden Center on the riverfront. The park simply consists of paved trails and benches that run down beside the river and led up to the center. There is the main fountain and several other fountains which shoot water at set intervals.
