Fat Tuesday!

What is Fat Tuesday you ask....
It's celebrations that include lots of feasting, partying and parading on the big day just before Ash Wednesday - when the Church rules of fasting take effect.
It's been that way in Christian countries around the world since the Middle Ages. Today most of the world's celebrations occur during the week of Fat Tuesday, which in 2010 falls on February 16.  (provided by internet research)

Did you know Mardi Gras is French for "Fat Tuesday"!

Get ready to party like you are in New Orleans!

Later -- Remington -- how did I get these beads? -- out!

Let's party tonight because the days of fasting are soon upon us...if we follow the tradition! I prefer the idea of Mardi Gras celebrating, great jazz, wild costumes, and marvelous food from now until Easter! BTW...you are in the groove, brother!
