    The history of the Cajun people starts in 17th century Canada. A group of French settlers colonized land in the area now known as the Maritime Provinces of Canada. The main area of settlement is now known as Nova Scotia, but was referred to as Acadia for almost 2 centuries. For more information on the Acadians, please go to the Acadian History or Acadian Genealogy web pages. After the English exiled them from their land, the Acadians were scattered about. From 1765 to 1785, over 3,000 of them made their way to Louisiana. Louisiana was to become their New Acadia.

    CAJUN ('ka:-j@n), n. A person of French Canadian descent born or living along the
    bayous, marshes, and prairies of southern Louisiana. The word Cajun began in 19th
    century Acadie (now Nova Scotia, Canada) when the Acadians began to arrive. The
    French of noble ancestry would say, "les Acadiens", while some referred to the Acadians
    as "le 'Cadiens", dropping the "A". Later came the Americans who could not pronounce
    "Acadien" or "'Cadien", so the word "Cajun" was born.

    why don't you just buy a box or two of the other screws and then use them instead of the supplied screws?
