New Orleans Update:
Posted Jul 11, 2019
The evacuation for the areas near the lower levees is now in effect for what is expected to become Tropical storm or Hurricane Barry. This storm is expected to continue strengthening and lasting through Sunday. The French Quarter was flooded yesterday morning when all of a sudden, ten inches of water poured down businesses were flooded. That drained over night. More water is on the way. The process of closing 200 hundred flood gates is in progress.
The storm chasers, hurricane hunters, whatever you want to call them, are flying the recconaisance planes in and out of the storm clouds to gather data. New Orleans has already been declared a state of emergency. What that actually means is that the official aid will take less time to take effect, National Guard to Red Cross and so on.
More details and graphics are on my fb page. The updates are getting more frequent.

My dad didn't mind pasta. Tomatoes, however , gave him heartburn. He preferred his pasta with a brown gravy, roux based and no tomatoes.
I just finished cooking a small batch with chicken.

Been sorting through some.
It's not just the food, but the origins and the stories of them being made and for who.
Youtube and music...

A couple of nights ago I found a video of best of 1976 music.
I won't put the link, but I will put my fb comment about it.
Queen, The Eagles, Wings, England Dan and John Ford Coley, Hall and Oates... and even Nazareth. Beyond that Can't stand the rest of it. Paul Mc Cartney could have sung the alphabet and been more entertaining than the rest. Flashbacks to the commute to school when all we had was am radio.
About the Glenn Miller song 'In the Mood':
Our band marched to this in 1985. We practiced over summer vacation. We practiced every week of marching season. This song became so ingrained that when the band played in the stands we danced in front, the charleston more or less. Ten or so years later I was working with Mike and Evelyn who had both been there for this. Evelyn had earworm issues with this song. Mike had to save her from it a few times by whistling the part she had stuck to the end.
The Eagles, Glenn Fry or Don Henley?
Disco or Country or anything else.... at all?

I found h2g2 in 1999. Started posting in 2000.
Give or take a few months or a year here and there I have been around most of that time.
I have been trolled (bored people with nothing else to do, I guess), flamed(jealous person) and even had sock puppets three of which that stand out the most and not just to me.
In all that time and in more than one account, which I have explained already, I have never had a post of mine covered or removed.
Not too bad for close to 20 years.
