Too Many Choices

Welcome reader! You have found my blog. I am a proud lifelong resident of the best city that ever was, Baton Rouge. Yes, superior to New Orleans, which makes it to many top ten lists of US travelers. We have the same climate, scenic architecture, antebellum monuments, and fabulous Cajun (French Creole) cuisine. But it is the state capitol on the Mississippi River, making it distinctive and colorful. Plus, we have the Blue Bayou and Dixie Landin’ amusement park. I want to let people around the world know what a great place it is to visit and all the ways you can pass a good time here. Trust me, there are a lot! I will be your one-stop internet tour guide for the state of Louisiana. I’ll let you know what to eat, where to go, and what to eat. If you think of any questions that I don’t touch on, drop me a line in the comments! Laissez les bon temps rouler!

Let’s start with a big shout out to the happy and friendly people of Baton Rouge. They are kind and considerate at their core. Take the day I ran out of hot water. I was in big trouble as I had a pile of dirty dishes in the sink and a load of laundry to do sitting on top of the washer. Not happening! My neighbor came to the rescue and brought over as many containers of the hot stuff as I needed. That’s the spirit of my town. I also got help from numerous friends who wanted to find me a new hot water heater, like the ones here. Everyone  who commented on my post on Facebook sent me an example of a top brand they liked. I had so many that I simply couldn’t go through them all and decide.  I was overwhelmed with the options.

It wasn’t any better at the Home Depot store. I thought I could narrow it down to just a few types. No, it just made me more confused. All of them were great and had the features and benefits I needed. Even price wasn’t an issue. It drove me crazy. I did ultimately end up with a tankless model thanks to the clerk in the home water heater department. So many people got into the picture that I had to do the right thing in the long run. Such are the good people of Baton Rouge.
