The famous Leah Chase

While i am in New Orleans looking for good community based projects i ran into the Famous Leah Chase. She is the Owner and head chef of Dooky Chases' restaurant in New Orleans. She is a very strong woman. When i stopped into her establishment she was there cleaning dishes and trying to get a foothold on the devastation that hit her restaurant. Posted by Picasa

2006 should be........

Well the new year is upon us and HOPEFULLY 2006 will be better than 2005.
I am off to the Gulf Coast for ome scouting missions for ABC television (Extreme Makeover Home Edition). I will post pics daily as i gather infor and stories. You really never know how bad things are until you see whats going in other places. Being from Detroit is a real eye opener to other cities. In so many ways i could write forever on the good the bad the ugly of being from Detroit. Well anyways, Happy New Year and Don't forget to tune in on SUNDAYS from 8am-10 am on WXYT AM 1270 "the sports station" where you can hear my radio show "Hire It Done". Its a good show. Enjoy. Adam

Yea thats me!

For those of you who don't belive that i actually can do some work! Posted by Picasa
