In First Bumpitty?!?
Yup, watch for Sean Penn to run for President in 30 years based upon his valiant exploits in the Battle of New Orleans.
Prayers for ALL!
I had been off and when I went to XIV there was no sign of continuance I got worried;)
Thanks for you work, NN. And thanks, JR, the tech staff, and the mods.
Thank you so much for starting the new thread!!!
Posting on a thread that has been locked is like talking on the phone when it disconnects and you don't know it...exasperating...LOL
2 new tropical systems may be forming off the FL coast..gulf of mexico waters still warm..even 82-85 degrees where Katrina upwelled cool water
You're gonna win something for sure!
Thanks for the new thread. I've been monitoring all week, but seldom post, since I didn't want to clutter it up.
You are amazing, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart (sitting in very dry western NY). My heart and prayers to those who suffer........ God Bless you and all who are there to support you.
You are an outstanding person for keeping all of htese threads going.
I have been appalled at some of the behavior of people on various other blogs and forums I occassionally participate on/in - the complete and utter total blame being laid upon the federal government, while saying the locals are not responsible for any problems has been horrendous.
By all means, donate to the Red Cross! I'm on volunteer duty here in San Antonio -- working the counseling and shelter management duty.
We need money.
That money is needed to purchase things like medication. That -- and entertainment items like games, toys and books -- is what is in shortest supply.
The last information I read was when the 2 block long levee was breached. I haven't been able to keep up with any type of news (whether here on FR or all other news sources).
Unfortunately, I've had to take medication that pretty well knocks me out and makes the best place for me to be is in bed.
I'm still not feeling 100% but can spend some time out of bed and catching up on what's happened (happening) in NO.
Is there some place for me to read up on NO? Y'know, a thread or similar that tells me whether the levee's were breached, what flooded as a result of the breach, how are search and rescue teams doing, is the dome still full of refugees, has everyone been rescued yet, any death toll estimates, if my town wanted to donate canned goods, clothing, bedding, furniture and money; is that acceptable or should we donate to who? I know the Red Cross and the Salvation Army are kind of like first responders but what can ordinary citizens do to help after the first responders have done their thing?
I regret if I seem a little disjointed, I'm still not all there yet. I apologize if I've offended anyone by this post. I know I could go read a lot of different threads but unfortunately, I don't have the stamina yet to do so.
NN, thanks for keeping the threads going and for all that you do.
Another new thread :-) Bf and I are laughing about Sean Penn and his leaky boat!
