Hurricanes can sometimes be devastating. So I decided to begin my blog to say that I do hope all you folks in the path of the latest hurricane will be safe and that the hurricane will miss you. I have met a lot of friends from Louisiana, and I am praying they will all be safe and minimun damages done. My friend Paul sent me an article, and I want to post part of it here. I would suggest you try these phone numbers now to make sure they are not out of date.

We will all be keeping our eye on the track of the hurricane and I know we will all keep you in our prayers. Stay safe, stay well.
On another note, yesterday , we went and met another one of my genealogy and chat member. When we met, it was as if we knew each other all our lives, I felt so comfortable chatting with her. This really makes me want to attend the CMA2009 even more, because there are so many that I want to meet. And northern New Brunswick will be something to see. I want to try and attend the Acadian Day on August 15th, it will be a really big event next year. And I want to attend some family reunions also, the Legers,Cormiers, either Breau or Boudreau are others I want to try and get to. And we are having our big Bergeron-Damboise reunion in July in Frederiction and the plans are coming along great. We have new members who have registered these last few days. So there will be no rest for us next year with all these reunions. grin.
Now guess what I am cooking? Yesterday I went and did my grocery shopping. Oh I will pick up some pork, and some bacon. I have some potatoes home. Why did I decide to buy these things? Well bright and early this morning I got up and washed my hands, and made a rappee Pie or Chiard to some folks and it is now in the oven, nearly finished. I can smell the rappee now. mmmmmm.
Have a great day everyone, thanks for the visit. (try your hand at making a rappee, you will love it).
