Happy Mardi Gras New Orleans!!
Laissez les bon temps rouler!

And keep the faith - the Crescent City is coming back.

The New Orleans Museum of Art opens next Friday, the 3rd and will be open weekends, free to those of us who live here in Louisiana.

Come home as soon as you can. You are New Orleans.
You are Louisiana from Plaquemines, St. Bernard, wherever. You are Louisiana.

From the Jamestown News, NC What's Cooking- Mardi Gras 2006! for a King Cake recipe.

Remember what the colors mean:

Gold is power
Purple stands for Justice
Green is faith.

Keep the faith. "We are Louisiana."
