Miss Rosie's Bar



Here's "Miss Rosie's Bar" the latest lifesize sculpture to grace Lafayette. Miss Rosie and one of her customers are portrayed by artist Al LaVergne. "Miss Rosie's Bar" was recently placed in front of the Lafayette Visitor Center just off Interstate 10 on the Evangeline Thruway into Lafayette.

Hey Ken,

I was checking my Technorati links and see that someone started a blog from my old stomping grounds. I spent about 7 years growing up in Lafayette and attended USL (now LSU at Lafayette?).

Anyway, it's an interesting coincidence that I now live in Stuttgart.

Lafayette doesn't look anything like it did when I left back in 1980.

Annie said...

I remember all the fun I had when I visited Lafayette years ago. I think it was that trip that inspired me to buy a house on Lafayette Street afterwards. I loved your city and I loved my house.

What a great fun sculpture. Sculpture with a sense of humour, I like it.

Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this. Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis, describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out. I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest, lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor. A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over. I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write. A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank

For those of you interested in reading some of Anne Frank's first stories and essays, including a version of Cady's Life, see Tales From the Secret Annex (Doubleday, 1996). Next: Reviewing and revising your writing

Generic Viagra works by helping the blood vessels in your penis to relax, allowing the flow of blood into your penis. The result of this is improved erectile function. Generic Propecia is a medication used for the treatment of prostate cancer and pattern baldness in men. It is the main ingredient in two drugs – Proscar for prostate cancer and Propecia for pattern baldness. Viagra has been clinically shown to improve erectile function even in men who had diabetes or prostate surgery. The pill contains this component that helps increase blood flow to the penis and may help men with ED get and keep an erection satisfactory for sexual activity.

To be a noble charitable being is to from a philanthropic of openness to the far-out, an ability to trusteeship undeterminable things beyond your own restrain, that can lead you to be shattered in unequivocally outermost circumstances as which you were not to blame. That says something remarkably impressive relating to the condition of the righteous passion: that it is based on a trustworthiness in the uncertain and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a shop than like a treasure, something fairly tenuous, but whose acutely particular beauty is inseparable from that fragility.
