VISIT THE TOMB OF VOODOO QUEEN
MARIE LAVEAU

Marie Laveau is known throughout the world as “the most famous and powerful Voodoo Queen of North America.” In actuality, this famous icon is really a combination of two people – a famous mother and daughter – who epitomized the sensational and exotic appeal of Africanized Voodoo in 19th and early 20th century New Orleans. Both women thrived against the strong ethnic backdrop of this First American Melting Pot, the gumbo that is New Orleans, and their legend grew along with their patrons. Rich and poor sought them out, first the mother and later the daughter in equal measure, to seek the aid of their dark powers to control lovers, gain fame and fortune, become pregnant, and exact revenge on others important in their lives.

MORGUS THE MAGNIFICENT
RETURNS TO THE AIRWAVES

MORGUS PRESENTS
COX 10 New Orleans Time : Saturday Nights at 10:00 p.m.
"HOUSE OF SHOCK ".


GREETINGS FRIENDS OF SCIENCE from the Momus Alexander Morgus Institute (M.A.M.I.), and its academic society, The Morgusian Order to Revere a Glorious Understanding of Science. (M.O.R.G.U.S.)

It is important to have some understanding of the origins of the Institute and the philosophy of its founder.

Since graduating with honours from Vasco da Gama Medical School, one of the illustrious institutions in the Caribbean, it has been my intention to one day topple the walls of ignorance that surround traditional academic establishments of "higher learning". Unfortunately, students, led by instructors with limited competence, are incapable of making "unauthorized" forays of discovery into the secrets of life, the earth, and universe.

M.A.M.I. was founded as a place where these barriers to boundless research are meant to be broken. Naturally, there has been considerable criticism of the way research is done here. Accusations have been made that my research involves unspeakable misuses of the microscope, dabbling in alchemy, and experiments of idiotic proportions to the enrichment of the faculty and staff. These opinions are those of "academically inept" individuals living in fear of loss of tenure.

Most research centers around the world are paranoid about secrecy in every aspect of their work. However, in this area, The Momus Alexander Morgus Institute differs from such organizations. All discoveries are freely disclosed to the public via my experiments broadcast weekly on television stations across the country and my highly acclaimed scientific lectures before learned organizations.

I have been derided, somewhat harshly at times, for using my lecture series as a soap box from which to take pot shots at the polluters of society and the shortcomings of academia. So be it.

You see, I, Morgus, have a mission. One given to me by a "Higher Order" of humanitarians devoted to the preservation and elevation of our planet through scientific means. Increasingly, the scientist, not the politician, has become the new force in the progress of civilization. He is the dispenser of miraculous inventions and the ideas that challenge the way in which humanity views itself and the world today.

To be that kind of force, that inventor, that enlightening voice to the masses; this is my assignment. And you, my friend of science, can make a difference. You can help humanity by bringing my presentation before your audience, and sharing the triumph of making this a better world. Please call us at M.A.M.I. today!

Scientifically yours,
Momus Alexander Morgus, Esq.
Founder, M.A.M.I.

While planning your trip to New Orleans, we hope that you are able to find a few items here at travelnola.com to make your experience pleasurable, as well as economical in New Orleans.

NEW ORLEANS MARDI GRAS
New Orleans….the mere mention of the name conjures up pictures of floats, maskers, beads, doubloons and the pure joy of Mardi Gras. From the family atmosphere of St. Charles and Napoleon Avenues, to the party feel of the downtown and French Quarter areas, there is a place to parade watch for everyone of every age and size. The celebration that is Mardi Gras is deeply rooted in the French tradition of New Orleans. Begun as a "New World" carryover from the pre-Lenten Parisian Mardi Gras, the New Orleans festivities evolved from private balls to foot parades to float parades (started in the mid 1800s) to the extravaganzas of today. The organizations that provide the Mardi Gras parades and balls are called "krewes". All do so at their own expense, thus providing what has many times been called the "Greatest Free Show on Earth". The Mardi Gras celebration begins on January 6 (Feast of the Epiphany also known as Kings Day) and continues through Mardi Gras Day (the day before Ash Wednesday). The traditional "king cake" is associated with and eaten during the entire Mardi Gras season. Also during this time, most carnival krewes have their balls or supper dances. Formal parades in New Orleans and the surrounding parishes begin about two weeks before Mardi Gras Day. The festivities reach a crescendo on the weekend before Mardi Gras Day and that level continues through Fat Tuesday. Houses, lampposts, people, and even horses are dressed in the colors ofMardi Gras-purple, green and gold. New Orleans for a brief time each year is transformed into a place where the everyday world is cast aside. Beads, doubloons, cups, and numerous other krewe throws are tossed to thousands of happy parade goers shouting,
"Throw me something, mister. "
Laissez les bon temps rouler.

THE NEW ORLEANS JAZZ & HERITAGE FESTIVAL
The Jazz & Heritage Festival has been a growing event each year. Setting record crowds the past few years. This two weekend festival has drawn the likes of many top entertainers, such as Paul Simon,Santana, B.B. King, and many more. This event always seems to out do itself every year. The festival always falls on the last weekend in April and the first weekend in May. It may be springtime, but do not count on all to comfortable temperatures. While average highs are only in the lower 80's, the combination between the large crowds and the lack of shade make for a surprisingly hot time. Another great thing about this festival is it gives you an opportuinity to sample just about every local cuisine you can think of. (Tip: Get your Crawfish Bread & Crawfish Monica early in the day. You don't want to waste time standing in line for these great items, when you could be out dancing to great artist). Remember to bring comfortable clothes and shoes and sunscreen and hat to enjoy the festival to its fullest.
Happy Jazz Fest!!!!
