mrd, if you all get a chance to do a program on the Tuskeegee Airmen, really encourage it. They are fascinating.
And, on a side note, the people in your house only leave that chaos in your kitchen because they know that they can get away with it!!! Boy, it would be showtime at my house!! I guess I'm not one to suffer silently....everybody is going to be unhappy!!! And I wouldn't cook for a few days, either!!! (Of course, I don't cook much anyway, but a good sit-in (after all, it is Black History month) can work wonders!)
