Support the Gulf Coast

Reposted from MySpace from a suggestion by ZMT.

Thanks ZMT. Here is something we CAN do to make some tiny dent in the catastrophe faced by the Gulf Coast.

Wherever possible, let's "buy Louisiana!"http://neworleanswebsites.com/cat/lap/lap.html

  1. At first it was the Louisiana coast. Then it was the Mississippi Coast. Next it was Alabama. Now the Florida Keys. I lost campgrounds, hiking trails, and our wildlife is dieing all over. Dolphins, turtles, and fish wash ashore dead. Birds drown in the oil. If the birds get just a little on them then they land in other lakes and waterways spreading the oil. People are getting sick and mobile clinics are moved into Grande Isle La. It is sickening and I hate to think of what all will come out of this. Restaurants cannot get the right seafood for menus. Tourism is at a low. People are losing jobs. Marshlands ruined. I know many will say I am just rambling on. In time this could be up the Atlantic Coast. Then what???

  3. I think this is a wonderful idea. I have birthdays coming up and of course Christmas. And we should definately give an explanation as to why we are buying these products. Thanks for the idea.

  5. well, i thought about the problem in the Gulf of Mexico, and it seems to me that BP needs to stop the leak,,,and shouldn't that have been a priority with these big companies before they start ruining the earth....oh, i forgot we need this oil,,,,please,,i do not mean to be disgruntled,,,and we do have to clean this mess up,,,but,,isn't the source of the problem still back at the oil rig,,,if i bake a cake, and it burns,,,either the oven is too hot or my timing is off,,,,it just seems people like me,,,no one is listening,,,,so sad,,

  6. I am back,,,their still cleaning up,,,,it's still coming in to the pristine beaches of the Gulf Coast,,,,all I hear is it costs
    $$$$$, and, I realize that....but, how long is it going to leak,,,,I guess that depends on how much oil the earth is spewing out....and, only the earth knows....times are changing,,,things are happening,,,and, I do not mean political predictions,,,,,,be prepared

  7. Well, they have stopped the leak for awhile,,,,,but, I can't help but wonder about all that pressure under the Gulf,,,,will it be permanently stopped,,,will the oil rig start pumping again,,,,or, will nature take it's course,,,,or, will "politicians" take care of it,,,,,,

Here's A Thought . . . Jack Maxwell and Susan Shaughnessy

Thursday March 26th, 2015
3 pm PDT - 4 pm PDT on your computers, LIVE at tradiov.com

Our special guest will be Charlie's friend, the very charming, Jack Maxwell.  Jack is the Host of the extremely entertaining, funny and successful show on The Travel Channel, The Booze Traveler!  We are thrilled to have Jack on the show to talk to us all about his new TV show. He just finished his first season of the show and has been picked up for a second season!


Jack travels the globe to not only get a taste of a country’s alcohol, but to quench his curiosity about what people drink, why they drink it and the stories they tell when they do. At each stop, he connects with locals, immerses himself in regional activities, learns about the country’s unique relationship with liquor and sometimes even participates in the alcohol-making process. If you haven't seen the show, you must check it out the website for #BoozeTraveler or watch some of the episodes online or on The Travel Channel. Check your …

Charles Shaughnessy Blog ~ So this is what I think . . . .21 february, 2012

THE Global struggle is NOT between Christianity and Islam, East .v. West....it is between the extremist and the moderate, the reactionary against the progressive. Look closely at the ideology of Rick Santorum, emergent as the standard bearer of the very vocal reactionary Christian Right, and compare it with the ideology of extremist Islam. Both see Religion as the guiding spirit of society, to the point where legislation itself should be Religion-oriented; not much removed from the vision of a Theocracy. Is there any real material difference between Santorum and the Right's desire to have government illegalize abortion, contraception and many other more subtle rights for women on the one hand, and the tenets of Sharia law that marginalize women in the Islamic culture on the other? Both sides believe in the "sanctity" of life, but will willingly sacrifice it in the name of their Gods. Again, is there really any material difference between shooting a doctor outside his Pla…

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — “Glee” actor Cory Monteith, who had struggled for years with substance abuse and once said he was lucky to be alive, died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol, the British Columbia coroner’s office said Tuesday.“There is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith’s death was anything other than a most tragic accident,” the office said in a statement. He was 31 years old.
