Talking Hello from Louisiana

Found the site doing an internet search and decided to join. I took a woodworking class in school and been doing it ever since. I opened my own cabinet shop 4 years ago and hopefully learn and share what I know with the forum.

Welcome aboard

I lived in New Iberia for about 7 months in 2002/2003.
We were building a drill ship for Petrobras. I sure miss the place.

Dynamic Industries - both yards were building the platforms to put on the boats and also JIBCCO and another blast yard were doing the coatings. I cant remember the name. Both blast yards I believe are gone. I was a very busy boy running through 4 yards everyday back and forth. That was a crazy job. I didnt sleep for 6 months.
We bought an RV and lived in it for the 7 months. The park we were in was about 1/2 mile east of Lewis on the main highway Hywy 90

Talking

Looks like we signed on about the same time. I'm originally from Bogalusa. I've been gone a long time but Loosiana is still in my blood!

I know that we are on a wood working forum, but I want to know if all Cajun's are great cooks? Over the years all of my Cajun friends have been great cooks and we still use many of their recipes.
