Ya – make fun of me – I said soffit instead of furdown. Oh well:) This is the before of our home renovation. Here is my previous post explaining all about our remodel. This is the day one of kitchen gutting. Found the vinyl flooring and wallpaper underneath – pretty!
While Sir JJ Witmeyer & I were changing planes in Dallas on Sunday, he was approached by a Vietnam Veteran. After he walked away, JJ said to me, “You can still the see PTSD in his eyes.” That kind of clicked things in to place for me after my week at the Military Order of […]
Update: This post at Blackfive clears up any misconceptions about this. It just means it is banned from the military computers. I am very saddened by this and think it is a BAD idea!!! Here is the Marine document and a story by Wired. Make policies for social networking OPSEC concerns – not ban. This […]
I’ll confess, until I started hanging with Mr. & Mrs. Cocktail (Ann & Paul Tuennerman) last year (we do back to back radio shows), my alcohol repertoire consisted of beer being “cold” or “really cold.” They have opened my eyes to a whole new world and I am embracing it…one drink at a time. I […]
UPDATE: Dear China, If we send you money will you keep him? I can’t wait to listen to all the talk show hosts this week make jokes about Nagin being quarantined in China. There is no doubt that many wish he would be quarantined until May 2010 – LOL! So, if you have something funny […]
For those on the Northshore, or even the Southshore who have not been to Ruby’s Roadhouse in Mandeville, time to get up and go. Yours truly is not much one for going to bars and dancing these days (seems going out is limited to events). However, being that is a hop skip and a jump […]
This is the getting ready portion of the parade. Enjoy.
Friday the 13th is whenthe Krewe of Eve (women’s parade) rolls in Mandeville. This is my first time riding and I’m so excited. I have so much to learn, but Yoda Debbi (she invited me in) is teaching me the ropes. The best tricks she taught me is how to save money. Since I was […]
This past year I have let my wonderful readers, my social networking friends, my radio audience and everyone I meet know about some of the needs of our men and women currently in uniform, their families, and our Veterans through Soldiers’ Angels. I am overwhelmed knowing that people really want to help when they know […]
Check this out – too good not to share!
I Saw the Star Gazing New Orleans article on NOLA.com. That is where you tell about the famous people you have seen and where. Thought it would be fun to do a Northshore addition. So…who have you seen and where?
The benefit for Mary Payton is coming up and she needs your support. Hubby and I are going – hope to see you there!

I apologize for using my blog to pimp my business. But hey – a girl has to make a buck! Now that you are all settled down from Gustav, time to get organized. I personally know 2 of the best (& least expensive) Professional Organizers in town (hint hint). That would be…yours truly, and my […]
Must…look away…from the weather – UGH!!! House cleaned, car cleaned, stuff unpacked, pictures back on wall, yard cleaned up, lawn furniture out of garage, hubby and kids home for a solid week (need I say more). People are still returning, areas are still without power, grocery stores are getting stocked up, I bought ice in […]
No house damage, the pets are only slightly traumatized and everything is canceled for a week – just a life interrupted with some minor inconveniences. My biggest concern, is that if there is another storm coming, people won’t leave. Evacuating is an expensive proposition! We had a wonderful time during our evacuation. I know that […]
