    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    Enjoy the Zoo and the Aquarium .
    Grew up there, it was a different time.....
    As far as the rest of the city, the shine wore off a long time ago.

    Most of my family have moved to the coast....

    P.S. One of my friends wife is a CEO type. She quit a majore phone company ( as a V.P. because of the stress) and went to work with the zoo.
    The very first day, the lady she was replacing took her on a brown bad lunch on a park bench outside of her office.
    She said when eating lunch and a elephant walked by she knew she had the right job...

    You know what they say you can't polish a turd but you can dress it up.

    Funny you should post those. I spoke with my brother last night who lives in Cut Off LA.
    If you can't fix it with JB Weld, Duct Tape, and Ty Wire it has to be replaced.
    No good deed goes unpunished.
    If you want to take off friday to go fishing then make sure you train your helper right.

    I was in NOLA just 3 weeks ago for the first time, just spent a couple of days. A very interesting city. Spent some time in the French Quarter, walked about the Garden District and the Lafayette Cemetary, checked out the vibrant downtown. Even though it's 8 years ago Katrina still has a big effect. We stayed in a hotel in the Ninth Ward that they said had flooded to the 3rd floor. Spent a lot of time driving about the Ninth Ward and Lower Ninth Ward, and St Bernard Parish, still seeing Katrina damage and rebuilding. Much of the new construction is very eco-friendly and interesting. Checked out the location of the levee failures and pump failures, and am right now reading a book about Katrina and the Gulf Coast, trying to understand the story better. NOLA has a wonderful vitality, I hope to go back again soon.

    Pic #5 makes me happy, happy, happy...I hated the old Huey and can't wait for this one to be finished. I was driving back to the best bank from Butcher on Thursday and almost got into a nasty wreck where they just added that other lane entering the new bridge (just ahead of where you took that pic I think). Are you a toll or no toll type of guy?
