Alrighty then....I guess I have talked enough politics for now. I'll get back to what I love to do. Gardening.........This year we started a garden in a new location. We have definitely picked some produce off of what was planted. Now, the summer heat has taken a toll on the veggies. I think we actually had a drought going on. I was feeling wilty from the heat, so I can imagine how the plants felt. LOL ! I have already gotten some new strategies on what to plant , where to plant it and I am making plans for the fall gardens. I've been visiting the feed stores to see what is coming in stock for the fall season. I am definitely ready for cooler weather to come so that I can get to some serious gardening.
I was talking with a neighbor, whom is a great survivalist, we are having a problem with rodents eating our tomatoes and cantaloupes. I was thinking maybe we could use a diluted pepper sauce and spray it on the plants and maybe a little cayenne pepper. If anybody has an idea it would be much appreciated. The problem is that we have the garden fenced off, so the dogs can't deter the little pesky rodents to not come in our garden. The other downside is that I have one puppy who is still going through her tearing up stage. My little puppy Jazzy is great at catching alot of critters. But she is also great at tearing up some stuff too. Well, I need to go pull up some half dead veggie plants....Until next time...Lez Bon Temps Roule Preppers !

I am new to Blogging, so please bear with me. I can honestly say that I was never into politics. With all of the new information out there, about what our new president is doing, has made all of that change. I guess it started with the issue on trying to stop Americans from having gardens, and with these tough times, and people loosing jobs, and stock market crashes I have seen more and more people growing their own food. Gardening has always been a hobby and somewhat therapeutic.Now it is a necessity! So for this to be an issue for our government, is why I am paying attention . Now with this health care issue. I have honestly had enough. I am now writing to politicians and elected officials. I am standing up for my United States of America. I am not going to lay down and let Mr. President Obama, shove this crow down my throat or my families. I mean, what is it going to be like for our grandchildren if we don't do something now. Rhino and I have been talking alot about all of the events taking place and we want to change the outcome and have a voice, where it is needed. Once we went to a protest, because the NAACP or the ACLU, wanted to have a picture of Jesus taking down out of the local courthouse. They said it was offending them. To them I say enough is enough! The United States of America was founded on GOD....In GOD We Trust! They are trying to take God out of everything. That's not acceptable ! I have so much to say but I guess this is good for starters. I am standing up for my country and the people who are giving up the lives, and their families, to defend what OBAMA and those dam democrats. are trying to take away from us. I tell Rhino all the time that the NWO might have taken over other countries but Americans aren't going to stand for it. The NWO is going to have on hell of a fight on their hands. I am hearing alot more fellow Americans talking about what is going on, more now, than ever before. I didn't vote for OBAMA ! I saw a church sign the other day, and it read ,"At the end of the word American is ICAN!" I can make a difference! We all can..... Well I guess that's all for now ..........

The effects of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans were shattering and long-lasting. As the center of Katrina passed east of New Orleans on August 29, 2005, winds downtown were in the Category 3 range with frequent intense gusts and tidal surge. Though the most severe portion of Katrina missed the city, hitting nearby St. Bernard and Plaquemines parishes, the storm surge caused more than 50 breaches in drainage canal levees and also in navigational canal levees and precipitated the worst engineering disaster in the history of the United States.[1]

By August 31, 2005, eighty percent of New Orleans was flooded, with some parts under 15 feet (4.5 m) of water. Most of the city's levees designed and built by the United States Army Corps of Engineers broke somewhere, including the 17th Street Canal levee, the Industrial Canal levee, and the London Avenue Canal floodwall. These breaches were responsible for most of the flooding, according to a June 2007 report by the American Society of Civil Engineers.[2]Oil refining stopped so the price of petrol increased all over the world.

Ninety percent of the residents of southeast Louisiana were evacuated in the most successful evacuation of a major urban area in the nation's history. Despite this, many remained (mainly the elderly and poor). The Louisiana Superdome was used as a designated "refuge of last resort" for those who remained in the city. The city flooded due primarily to the failure of the federally built levee system. Many who remained in their homes had to swim for their lives, wade through deep water, or remain trapped in their attics or on their rooftops.

The disaster had major implications for a large segment of the population, economy, and politics of the entire United States. It has prompted a Congressional review of the Corps of Engineers and the near total failure of the federally built flood protection system which experts agree should have protected the city's inhabitants from Katrina's surge. Katrina has also stimulated significant research in the academic community into urban planning, real estate finance, and economic issues in the wake of a natural disaster.[3]
