The Great American Solar Eclipse is almost upon us and if you’re planning to see it, timing is everything. From start to finish, the entire solar eclipse of Aug. 21 runs about four hours, but exactly what you can see and when depends on where you are. The eclipse begins on the West Coast at 9:05 a.m. PDT (12:05 p.m. EDT/1605 GMT) and ends on the East Coast at 4:09 p.m. EDT (2009 GMT). You can watch the entire solar eclipse on Space.com, courtesy of NASA.

On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe inspiring sights – a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun’s tenuous atmosphere – the corona – can be seen, will stretch from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun’s disk. NASA created this website to provide a guide to this amazing event. Here you will find activities, events, broadcasts, and resources from NASA and our partners across the nation.
What is It?
This celestial event is a solar eclipse in which the moon passes between the sun and Earth and blocks all or part of the sun for up to about three hours, from beginning to end, as viewed from a given location. For this eclipse, the longest period when the moon completely blocks the sun from any given location along the path will be about two minutes and 40 seconds. The last time the contiguous U.S. saw a total eclipse was in 1979.
Who Can See It?
Lots of people! Everyone in the contiguous United States, in fact, everyone in North America plus parts of South America, Africa, and Europe will see at least a partial solar eclipse, while the thin path of totality will pass through portions of 14 states.
Coffee plays an important part in Louisiana – go to any house in South Louisiana and you will be served steaming cups of coffee. Just a way to say Welcome to our home. So on this Sunday -Welcome and Enjoy ! Lisa
Coffee has played an integral role in Louisiana history since the early 19th Century. In 1802, 1,438 bags of coffee arrived at the Port of New Orleans; just 50 years later, the city imported more than 530,000 bags, according to the Louisiana State Museum. The Port of New Orleans quickly became a port of choice for Latin American coffee planters because of its enviable position at the bottom of the Mississippi Valley and its ability to receive goods from the Caribbean and South and Central America.

Yes – I left my crawfish in Michigan (LOL) . We lived the last 18 years in Michigan and we moved back 6 years ago to my home state to help my elderly parents. I came across this in the news and thought I would share,.
Michigan – has a crawfish problem.
The DNR said it is the first case of a live red swamp crayfish to be found in the wild in the state. Another of the invasive crustaceans was found in a retaining pond in Novi days later, the DNR said.
Now, they’re trapping the critters to try to get a handle on the infestation, but officials say totally eliminating them from the lake may not be an option.
That’s an issue because the crayfish can burrow and cause damage to bridges, dams and other structures, the DNR said. Ka;Kalamazoo News
Lafayette Travel is helping with the problem with Plans
Even though Vicksburg, MI and Lafayette, LA are separated by more than 1,000 miles, they both have one thing in common. Crawfish. On July 19 the Michigan Department of Natural Resources released an advisory confirming the presence of the invasive red swamp crayfish (Procambarus clarkii), also known as the Louisiana crayfish, in Sunset Lake in Vicksburg and a retention pond in Novi.
