Visit the History Museum, Red Beans & Rice on YouTube, Financial Tips & Things to Do this Week!

The History Museum of Mobile resides in the old city hall building built in 1856. One of my favorite rooms to visit is the Rutherford Carriage Collection exhibit. This grouping displays posh transportation like the Rockaway carriage and simple rigs like the Irish Gig. It is interesting to see how creative and enterprising the craftsmen were when constructing these predecessors of modern transport. This Sunday is the monthly FREE day, so head over for a visit! I highly recommend A History of Mobile in 22 Objects!

Insider tip: History Museum of Mobile is excited to announce its next major exhibition, Dressing the Abbey, opening January 28, 2023. Dressing the Abbey weaves fashion, history, and popular culture into an exhibition featuring the wardrobe from Downton Abbey™, one of the most widely watched television dramas in the world.

New on YouTube

It still amazes me that restaurants charge top $$$ for this simple and inexpensive dish. Traditionally, Red Beans & Rice is a Monday meal adopted by New Orleans locals from Haitian immigrants. Put a pot on this weekend and you'll have plenty to feast on all week long. Click here to watch.

For the fall, I will be showing you how to make some delicious Soups for the Soul. Many of them can be prepared and served in under an hour! The first episode will air this Sunday, November 6th. Be sure to subscribe to my channel so you don't miss a thing! Thank you so much for your support, now let's get cooking!

Coming soon! I will be visiting the Cascading Chrysanthemums at Bellingrath Gardens next week. I can hardly wait to show you this outstanding display that debuts every November. Hurry and visit because the Magical Christmas lights begin the day after Thanksgiving! Subscribe to my channel for more local attraction episodes.

  1. Take a hard look at your expenses and create a budget (and stick to it).

  2. Limit your expenses, especially big ticket items. Cutting back on discretionary spending allows you to save some money.

  3. Pay down high interest credit cards and/or refinance with a fixed loan.
