2. Thanks, I needed that!
I've bookmarked this--I'll look at it next time I need to see the smile of an angel.

What a beautiful photo.

Welcome to DU!

7. Covington is across the lake from New Orleans
It is a progresive little town in the middle of RED STATE NATION.

We know who and what we are. Where we are and where we must go.

We don't hide our skeletons: http://politicalswitchboard.invisionzone.com/index.php?...

But we do celebrate our potential: http://www.bestofneworleans.com/dispatch/2005-05-24/new...

We just try to do the next right thing.

"WE" is all of us.

15. Not many blacks in Covington
But, those who are here are active, appreciated, contributing members of the community.

We have a long way to go.

And we are on our way.

16. You really want to know?
Scattered to the four corners of this once great country, most with no way back and no place to go back to.

Thank you mr. bu$h for destroying a vital part of our heritage.

25. ABC news did a report tonight
about some New Orleanians who have been relocated. FEMA is doing NOTHING to help them get back home, although many want to return. :grr:

Glad you are well and fun is being had.

30. Right on
I'm raising mine in the same vein. I think I'll not be so afraid to bring my little one to gatherings against the cons.

27. Yep, but it's the reality we live with every day
Edited on Sat Mar-04-06 06:52 PM by Keseys Ghost


On Mardi Gras, we took a break from all of that.

28. I understand & appreciate that
I had extreme highs & extreme lows while there last week. I was in Mandeville when I lived there, not too far from you.
