That's a great story, Tom. I'm so glad you could help out in this way and make that community a little bit better and brighter.
It really is rewarding, I wish I could have volunteered more then just the one day. It's truly heartbreaking to stand in the street and all around you are the hurricane ravished homes still this way 7 years after Katrina.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Yeah, there's really no excuse why this has to have happened to the people down there. I know it's not a simplistic answer of just picking up, wiping off the grime and rebuilding but you'd think after almost eight years that more would have been done to rebuild and revitalize a city that once half roughly half a million people.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I loved New Orleans. I'd like to go back someday.

Yesterday was the Kentucky Derby, so I prepared some traditional Louisville treats- "Derby" Pie (can't call it Derby Pie unless it's from the original bakery):



I made one for my sister.

Yum...



The Hot Brown- a turkey, bacon, tomato and mushroom open faced sandwich with a very rich cheese sauce:



Benedictine spread (cucumber, onion, and cream cheese blended together) with bacon:



I'm so glad my mom is from Louisville...

Walnuts and chocolate, with a small amount of bourbon.

I've also gotta say that it's terrific what you did to help there, Tom. Mind boggling how New Orleans still has so many ruined homes and stifled lives so many years after Katrina. The Bush Administration really dropped the ball... and it doesn't look like Obama's camp has been able to do much either. Very depressing.

How the Denver metro area welcomed in the month of May.

This last week I have alternated between A/C and heat because Mother Nature has decided to alternate between 80-degree and 30-degree days. Hurray!

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Is it ever not snowing in Colorado? Every time I talk to somebody from out there: "We just got five more inches of the white stuff!"

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I lived in Colorado for ten years, I don't remember THAT much snow. Sometimes it snows in May, usually in the mountains though!

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Freak weather happens sometimes. I'm pretty sure Colorado had weather in the 70s back in February, so maybe this is just a delayed winter.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I figured as much. That might be all it is. I have a few friends who live out there and they always talk about the snow. I tease them about it.
