2 years later…
Let’s take a second to raise our morning coffee cups in honor of the people of New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast on this day. And for those in Seattle, try to point towards the space needle (i just always wanted to say that).
NBC Nightly News Coverage
Link to last night’s interview
wow. My mom, my family, my house, and the street I drove down for 13 years to go to school were all on national news last night. It is surreal. A huge salute to Brian Williams and his producers and his crew for honoring their promise to come back to the town.
Some other links to check out
And of course, since i couldn’t be down there, my family took some photos for me to share on my blog.
Okay, time for my quick commentary on the interview…
MSN.com right now
If you go to http://www.msn.com right now, they have this art gallery of before and after and now shots.
(i had a friend get married in that church)
But this one got me by the throat this morning… It is #3 in the series for those following along at home (and have actually read this far).
I grew up down the street from here. I loved this house with its 5 ceiling fans in the front porch and the 5 on the back porch. I absolutely loved the pink house (yes, i loved a pink house) that used to be next to it. I so wanted to buy that pink house one day when i grew up. but i digress. I knew someone who lived here in this blue house who died a very long time ago. The last time I saw him, we were chatting from one of the 2nd story side windows on the left. There’s just something about having these memory "landmarks" disappear that really come back to get you years later.
Alrighty, it’s time for me to get back to work and write some more Visual Studio tips and tricks, and maybe release some code… always makes me feel better. =)
