Following are the responses received to our Katrina Blog — a request for photographs that depict “good news”… people helping people and having a POSITIVE impact on the lives of Hurricane Katrina’s victims.
If you haven’t sent in your photo yet, you’ve got until September 30th to submit a photo that shows you or your family doing something that’s POSITIVE and DIRECTLY RELATED to the ongoing relief efforts.
Reminder: Every photo = another donation to the American Red Cross!

Blogs Monitoring Progress After Katrina
- MetroBlogging — a number of bloggers are providing regular “real-life” updates from the perspective of those who are living through the changes in New Orleans.
- 100 Days Of Blogging — an archive of blog posts from reporters who went to places and conveyed stories that weren’t otherwise being told.
- Nola U.S. — regular updates on how things are progressing from New Orleans.
At Snopes various “facts” and “rumors” about Hurricane Katrina are either validated or debunked.
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV. You can always find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
