Oh, you mean Governor Jindal? (Although he was not the governor when Katrina hit). Nagin was the city mayor, and he ended up disgracing the city as well.

Sometimes thrift stores can surprise you.

I happen to collect old dress clips (similar to shoe clips but meant to wear on lapels, hats, etc.), and they tend to be quite spendy in antique stores. Found a pair once in Goodwill for a steal.

Today I got these

1) A 45: Asia - Ride Easy/Heat of the moment (I also have thier first album with this song (THIER BEST ALBUM))

2) Bryan adams - reckless (ON VHS (A collection of videos from his 'RECKLESS' album))

I THINK ITS SAFE TO SAY RECKLESS IS HIS BEST ALBUM -- OH MY.......... And the last song was a surprise as it WASNT LISTED ON THE TAPE BOX AS ONE OF THE SONGS ON THE COLLECTION! ("One night love affair" -- (Played during the ending credits) OH MY....this song is in the movie 'REAL GENIUS' (1985) also and it sounds JUST AS GOOD!!! -- I am so glad this tape WAS NOT DIGITALLY COMPROMISED!!!!!!! (I had THE DOORS 'LIVE IN EUROPE' (1968) on VHS also the other day and it sounded like crap..... At the end of the tape I discovered why "Sound Mix: Digital enterprises" (Or something "Digital") I got rid of it!!

I have a doors greatest hits 2 record set.... I can hear thier stuff in 100% analogue! (Much nicer IN MY OPINION)

I head for anything electronic, the older the better. Wife heads for the books and magazines. Last trip she got a real nice 1945 "Saturday Evening Post" I found a neat early Electric toaster, and it works. The old type where you had to open the doors and the bread turned to the other side.

I make a note in my phone and then research the product when I get home.
Indeed,thats the smart way to do it!!! (Thrift stores are awesome,especially for finding OLDER STUFF!!)


Today I got 2 VHS movies

1) Body Heat - 1981
2) The fourth Protocol - 1987
