People not from the South often wonder aloud about the origins of “Hee Haw.” Their answer is in clips like this one from the semi-legendary Lonzo & Oscar (intro by the terrific Marty Robbins).

“Wanna Play Tag?”
“Fresh Baked Posts!”

“Oldies But Goodies!”
"What's Been Cookin'?"
“Our Favorite Stuff!”
"Mui Bueno Blogs!"

We took a 4-day tour around the Crescent City with the family. Although we had been there many times before, there were still things we haven’t seen … so many great places we haven’t dined. DAY ONE: Our first stop was Magazine Street, a shopping district to the south of the French Quarter from Canal […]
New Orleans has always been one of our favorite cities to visit. Not only is there a lot to do, there is a lot to eat. This particular trip with our boys was going to be a combined Dixiedining.com eating tour of New Orleans and an educational History Class field trip. Our home base was […]
