If you live in New Orleans you should add the cost of a casket and a funeral.

fwiw in new orleans and metairie (subburb 8 minutes away), the "unlimited data" internet option needs to be updated as there are 2x real options:
ATT DSL - There is a data cap, im not sure of #
ATT FTTH (minor availability)- 1tb / mo data cap
Cox Cable - 1.25TB/mo (or +50$ extra, for unlimited data)
thanks

If you live in the city of New Orleans you have free access to the recreation dept. services. This includes fitness rooms, outdoor and indoor pools, some exercise classes, and basketball courts.
