On the day before sacrifice and giving up for Lent, today is Mardi Gras. As our friends in New Orleans would say, "Laissez les bon temps roulez!" Ah, to be oyster-bar hopping in the french quarter. A scoop of horseradish and tabasco. Yum! Well, two years ago I gave up watching television for the entire season of Lent. Gained a great deal of focus. Not to mention more time. Will you be giving up something?
