Help Rebuild, Come Celebrate -Haïti Chérie

Sometimes getting Mike Pardus to post is a little like trying to convince a blue whale to wear a miniskirt -ain't happening, no matter how much she wants to wear it -even when posting is surely going to benefit a cause that he is already working like a maniac to pursue. So, I have taken the whale by the tail and cut and pasted this announcement from the Zanmi d'Ayiti web site. Both Mike and I will be working the event all day so stop by and say hello if you are in town. - Bob dG

Thanks, Bob - I'm a weeny. I'm letting the pedestrian need for sleep over ride my chefly instincts to push through and get it all done. You usually do end up picking up my slack when I bite off more than i can chew.
