Over the years of teaching Louisiana history I began to travel and collect Hot Sauces - not just any hot sauces, but Louisiana hot sauces. I slowly began to amass a huge amount. I generally bought two - one to try and one to display. The collect grew and grew and GREW until I just simply did not have space for it any more. But I still kept collecting. See the edges of this blog.
I ended up being on TV showing off my collection PLUS my collection of everything else I was hanging on to as a history teacher.
