Looking forward to seeing more on Carnival. Great idea about going green - I shutter to think how much we are contributing to environmental toxicity and landfill waste. Not to mention just the distraction the focus on BEADS has on enjoyment of the beautiful parade floats, their often satirical messages, and the music of the marching bands. Happy Carnival, Errol!
