prune picker

This is the blog of a prune picker. (Native born Californian) Retired oilfield. I am an old man. (91) I blog a lot about my body and getting old. As I approach death life gets more interesting. More interesting is not good. I still drive. I attend sports, music, and civic events. I am writing my memoirs. I attend swim class three times a week. Some of my blogs might be interesting. A lot of my blogs are silly and trivial. None are very long.

NE Louisiana Genealogical and Historical Society Meeting. 6-14-2015.

Margaret Rivoire gave a talk on the "Vanishing Coastline of Louisiana".  16 square miles vanishes every year. Two large contributors to the problems are (1) farmers and levees, and (2) oil well canals. These factors disturbed the natural ebb and flow in the wetlands.




Margaret is from the area and knows her subject well. I enjoyed her talk.
