    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.

    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.

    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...

    I've never heard of any of these! What's in the pie?

    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!

    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!"

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

    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.

    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.

    Thanks Gary, I know it's not a lot but with the help we were able to provide I know her house is closer to being done. That means she will be able to get home soon. It wound up that our group was able to raise almost $12,000 to donate to the St. Bernard Project.

    Someone's definitely not telling the right stories to one of us! :lol:

    I went out there for a week back in March. When we got there, the weather was 70 degrees and sunny. By the time we left, there was a blizzard.

    I guess all our Colorado-based friends must be right then, depending on when they tell us the stories. One day it looks great and sunny, the next the roads are a snowy, icy mess.

    Some states can be like that.
