New Orleans

Well, Season 5 of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition has come to an end.
It was a fantastic year.
The good news is that there will be a season 6.

The last show of the season took us to Louisiana. We were very lucky to have 17 of our wonderful builders from all over the country come down to Louisiana to make what we set out to do happen. The main builder was Deltec Home. They gave us not just a house but they also built a church. It should be a great season finale.

To all the builders and their men and women that made the build possible “Thank You”!

Now on a different subject…
Having spent 2 weeks in New Orleans it is apparent that as a country we have dropped the ball on getting the people who are doing the work the MONEY they need to help get the families in New Orleans back into their homes. I did get a chance to stop by and talk with a wonderful non-profit organization called St. Bernard Project. I have written about St. Bernard Project before in my blog.

This group is really making a difference. The St. Bernard Project has already built 100 homes for families in New Orleans.
So they can continue to get more homes built for families please consider sending a check or going down to New Orleans to work with them. They can use the help.

Check out their web site St Bernard Project and do what you can. They know what they are doing and they are doing it.

You may ask what I will do with my time off? Plant tomatoes, make music with my friends and relax.

I will try in the future to be better at blogging. We will see!
