November 2009- The State of Louisiana declared their intention to
expropriate our property for the new teaching hospital and told us not to
spend any more money on the property.   They sent in the appraisers and
we await further news.  
But- we fixed up everything we'd done so far and had our Endymion Party
on Feb. 13, 2010 as our inaugural event, anyway.  Much fun was had by all
who attended.
