Thanks to Wang Chi for the link to this article.

(All this talk of Hurricanes is making me thirsty.)

Well now, and a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you. Mine was on Saturday. Only, I'm 53 now. You're not. What day is it, this weekend? I'll have to toast you, Laurie, wherever I am that day. Too bad you probably won't make it to New Orleans, with all those bodies floating around. And the rabies.

Hurricanes are oh so tasty.

Is it true that the storms start somewhere near Africa?
A grandparent says they do, but I think they've been in your states too long and have been confused by the American news.

I'm so sorry to see what happened to New Orleans...it is just devastating.

Laurie said...

Marinade Dave - Happy birthday to you, too. My birthday is 9/5 so toast away!

Comadose - Yes, they are!

Glod - The storms actually start on the African continent and then move off the coast into the Atlantic ocean. The currents then bring the storms to the United States.

Sara - It's just horrible.

I was talking to someone earlier about how I was raised there, but never went to Pat O'Briens. So sad.

Tiger Lilly - You'll have one next time your go there, I'm sure of it. Delish!
