Well Darlin’s this day makes Year 233 A.R. (After Revolution). We all should be proud of the fact that somehow the strange collection of folks that have lived through those years managed to keep it all together (The War Between the States was a major blip on the screen…), and so much has been done by the people of this Nation. I can’t say by the Nation because the people are the Nation. It has always been up to citizens to create, build and advance our lives here and to provide for the ones to come.
I am proud to be an American. I’m proud of the service I rendered in the Navy to help protect this country. But… I am upset with the Government for the slow, and possibly non-existent rebuilding along the Gulf Coast after Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Gustav and Ike. Many private people stepped up to the plate to help all os along the Coast out from the devastation, but the Government has been sorely lacking, especially for those of us in New Orleans who lost almost everything from the failure of the Federally designed and built floodwalls and levees. Betty and I lost 95% of our pasts and four years of our lives fighting to rebuild our little world. Many others have lost and they have yet to be able to get to the restoration point that we have reached. Along the Coast many of us feel as if America, the Government, has forgotten us. We know that America the People didn’t.
The Church of Our Lady of Gentilly wishes many Blessings to the American People. Party hearty!
Check out- Odd Bits of Life in New Orleans for his take.
It’s 78 degrees, humid and thunder clouds are amassing. It’s supposed to be cold and snowing, but the Nagin Administration is in charge of scheduling the weather (because C.Ray “controls” the vertical and the horizontal in order to help us buffoons get by. Evil minion Blakely probably had this job since he’s the Recovery Czar.) Well the snow came two weeks early, but at least Nagin and his minions actually made something happen. We should give thanks for at least that I guess.
Enough of that snark.
Tonight Betts, our dear friend Elaine and I will be holding court at Le Cote Brasserie on Tchoup. Then we head out to see friends at the Starlight and play games, come home for “A Christmas Carol” with Alistair Sim and then your’s truly gets to start prep work for tomorrow’s dinner- Prime rib on the Weber and the fixens.
To you my Gentle Readers and for everyone in the New Orleans area, have a Merry Christmas (Bill O’Reilly liked that) and may you and yours have a great time. (Carpetbaggers are not included since they work for the Grinch) And to the NOLA Bloggers- I give you all a big hug and a kiss.
This bitch will be back on the 26th.
Last March I was tickled pink (of course) over McDonalds decision to make a donation to the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC. I ended an eight year hiatus of eating their junk food in order to be supportive of the company’s outreach to the LGBT community.
Today I must swear off spending money at McDonalds- They caved to the American Family Association’s (AFA) boycott concerning the “The Big Mac attack on family values.” The Church of Our Lady of Gentilly has now black-listed McDonalds.
I guess that the rabid cross-bearing fanatics eat mainly fast food, because that boycott would not have worked if they frequented these kinds of eateries in a manner which intelligent people do- which is rarely. These people must be so short on time to home-cook meals due to their rabid attracts on anything/one that does not swallow their Cultural donkey poop.
I guess I’ll just have to wait until clogged arteries and obesity claim the fools at the AFA. (Maybe this is McDonalds secret and cunning plan- kill the Religious Reich by poisoning them. One can only hope…)
Well, there are those mystics who believe that something fantastic will occur in late August ’12. It is to be an Awakening that will move us forward in Enlightenment. There are others who think it means the end of the World. Since I have a metaphysical bent and love pouring over the information from all sides of the debate, I side with the former.
Late last night I was nodding off at the ‘puter and then a Terrible visage/message appeared in my vision- “Palin 2012″. ‘Twas scary… take a look-
Is this the Great Beast talked about (ad nauseum) in the Book of Revelations? I know it’s supposed to arrive from the East, but what if that was the origination point and not the travel route. It could cross the Bering Straits and sneak in our back door. (You betcha! wink,wink)
A Warning from the Church of Our Lady of Gentilly- Break out your black candles, sea salt and sage. Hie thee to an armory and choose thy sword. The Great Beast Palinix is slouching it’s way to Washington. I can see her oil smokes from here…
