Friday Fun: Big Easy Memories


With thoughts and prayers turned to the heart wrenching tragedy in the Gulf states, it doesn't seem appropriate for a silly Friday Fun today. Instead listen to the wise words of a young boy who faced his own personal challenges, Mattie Stepanek

Although 'to be or not to be' is a famous question, another important question is 'to do or not to do' in life. Too often, we choose not to do, because it's easier that way.'

My memories include a weekend partying in the French Quarter with the divaest GNO friends complete with a vampire, dinner at Nola and alcoholic hurricanes. Another time there was a visit to a gentleman's club with some wild AMA folks. Hmmm...

And then let your fingers do the clicking and make a donation. Here's a list of charities that are helping the Katrina hurricane victims - people and pets.

Good morning America how are you?
Don't you know me I'm your native son,
I'm the train they call The City of New Orleans,
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done.
