Well keep trying.

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin has issued a "desperate SOS" for thousands of people stranded with no food or water at the city's convention centre.

Up to 25,000 people are at the centre, in addition to tens of thousands more still trapped by the flood waters unleashed by Hurricane Katrina.

It just keeps getting worse.

Just to let you all know, my family and I survived.  We left the day before it hit.  We heard from a couple of people that stayed, they said the front of my house was okay but the back-end that faces north was tore up from the winds.  We had no water damage.  Right now I am staying in Texarkana, Arkansas and will be leaving in the morning to work in Shreveport temporarily until my company, Hibernia National Bank, figures out what to do.  For those who don't know, Capital One has post-poned the merger between themselves and Hibernia til the 7th.  Well I may not respond very soon because I would have to find another computer to get on.  I will post pictures of the house and some of the damages of my area as soon as I return.  To let ya'll know how close my house was to the storm, just look up Marrero, LA on Yahoo Maps.  
I miss reading all the articles on the site and hope to be able to find time real soon to get back on.
Oh, almost forgot, ya'll may want to send a few prayers to all those beautiful luters out there, cause it won't be anything nice if I find any in my home.
Talk to ya'll real soon original.gif

Very glad to hear you and your family survived  original.gif .
Sorry to hear about the damage to your house sad.gif . I bet it was very scary knowing a hurricane was going to hit around your area.

My friend lives down in Shreveport, Louisiana. She's helping in shelters for the people that don't have homes. I will be donating money. I feel really bad that this happened, and I'll see how much I can do to help.

Make sure you get them to write checks...no cash...and make the checks out to The Red Cross...then mail them all to the Red Cross office nearest you. thumbsup.gif

I gave $150.00 to the Red Cross.  Not bragging...I wish I could have given more.  

Don't think small donations don't count.  In Dallas you can buy a case of Oasis water 24pk for $3.50 and they don't tax bottled water.  I figure I bought a bottle of water for over a thousand folks.  Every little bit counts.  If you only give $5.00  consider it in the context of you being one of millions who gave $5.00.  Give whatever you can. thumbsup.gif
Please.

A easy way to help is just click the link in my sig. I know we all have $5.00 to spare.

Just think $5.00 from every person participating at this forum!

You can by mail and if your 12 I'd ask your parents to fill it out over the net with their credit card.  I'd ask parents permission for even sending in the mail also.

Being a packrat sometimes comes in handy. I've cleaned out closets of shoes, clothes, crayons, toys, kitchen supplies, (for the people setting up housekeeping in town), and everything else I can think of.

Did anyone happen to see Larry King last night? Irvin Mayfield, a jazz musician, said he is setting up a program to get musical instruments to the street preformers but, I didn't have time to write down the contact information. No, problem, right? Just look on the website. There is no mention of it there at all. disgust.gif Not even in the transcript. disgust.gif

I have a saxaphone sitting in the attic collecting dust and would like someone to put it to good use. I can think of no better time to put a little music back into someone's life.
