Thank you!

What a great end to a fantastic tour! Thank you, Robert, Simon, Jason, Roger, and Reeves! Thank you, The Cure! Haven't enjoyed a tour this much since the Dream Tour.

And THANK YOU to everyone of you who helped with the SummerCure coverage. It wouldn't have been possible without the help you guys provided. I've said it before, and I'll say it until I die, Cure fans are some of the nicest, most helpful & supportive people you will ever know. So thank you again for making this tour so much fun and helping me out with whatever I needed. Let's do it all again, very soon. :)

Preparing for Isaac

Just a note to explain the lack of updates in the next few days. Tropical Storm/Hurricane Isaac looks like he wants to pay us a visit for the 7th anniversary of the Hurricane Katrina hit, so I'm taking this time to get my evacuation plans in order, just in case I have to get out of here on Monday. Hoping this  won't be needed, and he heads east or west (sorry, friends in Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida), and I can stay right here. Will update when I can. Until then, just do a YouTube search for Cure videos from Leeds and stuff. Or if you have videos, pictures, photos, stories, whatever, do me a favor and post a link to them in the Cure at Leeds thread. Thanks! See you again soon. No way I'm missing the final SummerCure show. Hmm, maybe evacuate to Ireland? :)

Update (Aug. 28th, 2012):  Decided to play it safe and got out of NOLA for a few days. Isaac doesn't really look too bad at the moment, but flooding is always an issue & the loss of power for days is not fun in the heart of a NOLA Summer. I'll be back to updating today. Thank you so much for all of the well wishes. Really appreciate them. Please send those good wishes to New Orleans now.
