I've never bought a subscription to Louisiana Life because by the time the magazine is on the market, most of the dated events have past. I even quit looking for the magazine at B & N bookstore. Louisiana Life is a good magazine but not circulated early enough for us to spend our money buying. Let me know when things get better.
