My best friend's cousin was released by Islamic Militants in the Phillipines after 14 months captivity.

Man, that is intense and what a relief for their family. He'll have to undergo a full debriefing and psychological care, I'm sure, after such a lengthy time of captivity. Good luck to him.

My wife ran into Mrs. Ally today at lunch and it seems the old boy pulled through his operation just fine and is enjoying his opiate slumber.

Cheers!

Not out of woods yet, Mrs Ally said that bastard might be OK! :thumbsup:

I just got back from New Orleans and it was a blast! I have never been anywhere like it! If anyone is interested, I may post pics--however I used a film camera, so they aren't ready.

Did you go to the Eric Clapton concert?

I thought about getting a ticket to the Clapton concert, I saw it wasn't sold out, but I went to NOLA by myself and since I don't know my way around, was too intimidated to go to a major rock concert by myself in a strange city. I heard a lot of live music though. Live music is everywhere in the French Quarter--in all the bars, in the street, everywhere. There's usually no cover, the liquor is cheap, people are friendly. I also went to Preservation Hall to hear some traditional jazz, which was fun even though it isn't my favorite type of music...I stayed in a hotel right in the French Quarter, just down from the corner of Royal and Orleans streets.

IMO, you made the right choice Scarlet. Hearing the indigenous sounds of New Orleans is always preferable to Eric Clapton.

When you do get your photos developed, please do post them...there is a New Orleans thread here where they would be most welcome.

That's wonderful Kate!

Well, sweetie, it's been said you get what you give in this life.

Sounds like you're pretty wonderful yourself.

Happy anniversary(s)!

I was thinking that too; I could (theoretically) see Clapton in NYC, depending on how much I would be willing to shell out for tickets...thanks for telling me about the New Orleans thread; I checked it out--too many videos to see...I hope my pics come out!
