Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 23, 2009 by 30daysout


Not much to say today: it’s Fat Tuesday/Mardi Gras day, and it’s the final big blowout before the period of fasting and sacrifice called Lent.  Feel free to party as you please; here’s some music to help you on your way.  Play ’em loud, play ’em often, and play ’em all year – make every day a Mardi Gras Day.

Don’t forget: You can tune in to real-time live webcams for your window on some Mardi Gras parades in New Orleans.  NOLA webcams
