This blog is dedicated to the low-carb menu challenge presented by Jimmy Moore. I'm living the Louisiana low carb lifestyle, where low-carb is the new way to go ! I live southwest of New Orleans, Louisiana....have three awesome kids. We are deep down in the heart of sweet Cajun Country, where we kick back and relax, go hunting, fishing, or make groceries! My doctor told me that my blood pressure numbers were getting too high, so I had to loose weight. She challenged me with ten pounds in three months. That was October 7, 2008. I lost 26 pounds !!! In February of 2011, I found that I had gained a few pounds more than I would have liked, weighing in at 170 pounds. I had to get back into the swing of living the low carb life again !! I am loving the 'low-carb' style and wish to contiue it . I exercise three times a week at the gym, and off the 'off' days, I learn to RELAX !! November 2011, finds me in different circumstances -- a new lifestyle, great community of friends and a challenge to keep that 45 pounds that I lost OFF. Feel free to read my blog, browse around, or just sit a spell!!

Admiral Nimitz Pacific War Museum

I was pretty disappointed with the Museum.The Admiral Nimitz museum is just that: depicting the life of the Admiral. What he wore when he was younger, how he grew up, his accomplishments etc. AND a HUGE gift shop.

It was not like it was 20 years ago. Down the street up two blocks is the actual "Pacific War Museum".. which consists of three areas. One representing what it would be like on an actual deck of an air craft carrier; One outdoor faux 'beach head', with all and any artillery that would have been used, and a representation of a MASH army hospital. I believe the highlight of the tour was the faux beach head. There was a lot of artillery used during the Pacific War. The anti-aircraft gun is one of them.

Another part of the Museum, set to open in Dec of 2009, probably holds the 'heart' of the artifacts. Guess that will have to wait for another trip there !
