The Gloria Powers Memorial Fund has been set up at the New Orleans Musicians Clinic & Assistance Foundation. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to to NOMCAF to help keep our musicians healthy and playing. Gloria would want it no other way...
Donations can be made at www.nomaf.org/donations.php (put Gloria's name in the subject line of the online form) or checks can be made out to NOMAF (with Gloria Powers in the subject line). New Orleans Musicians Assistance Fdn. c/o Donor Relations 1525 Louisiana Avenue, New Orleans, La. 70115
Thank you all for your love and support.

Owen: I can see your point and how that stands in a free market economy. When sourcing grapes (or really any commodity) from a 2nd or 3rd world country, however, the farmers and workers do not have laws to protect them, to keep them safe. It is not perfect, but it is much better than the other option - which compromise health, safety and quality. Fair Trade helps not just a farmer to make more money, but his workers to earn more and his community to benefit as well.
Hi Dee: I've had no luck with Pimms No 6 in the US - and that includes an extensive Google search for any retailers. Nothing turned up. If I ever come across it I will let you know.
I was at the polls at International School of Louisiana in the LGD at 5:30am with 150 of my neighbors. I've never been so happy to be awake at 5:15 and walking thru the park. Once at the booths there was an 18-year old girl with her grandmother who declared that whoever won, it was a history making election (a woman or a black man) and her granddaughter would always remember this. When the 18-year old entered the booth the three of us practically hugged. She was so nervous. When I gave the commissioners my name tears came to my eyes as I watched the grandmother shuffle to the side to wait for her granddaughter with look of peace and pride on her face. It was a moment I'll not soon forget. All around New Orleans today we've heard the familiar southern cry, "Vote early & vote often!"
I could just pinch myself. THIS is what elections are really about.
Cool! Sarah Palin reads Gambit!
This is really really random (or really New Orleanian) Pandora's Snowballs on N. Carrollton sells great hot tamales.
