Well the forecast is looking kind of iffy at this point. I don’t know of a time when I’ve been so consistantly depressed reading a forecast! Tomorrow. Rain, followed by rain, then more rain and then a thunderstorm. YUCK! ENOUGH!
So what to do other than pump the excess water out of your basement or pool? Go have a cocktail and help raise some money for a good cause. You can also go do some nifty artsy stuff like…

Next is the American Heart Associations 13th annual Heart of the Hamptons Gala. This year’s event is being held on the grounds of the Hayground School in Bridgehampton.

This year’s event is emceed by Bill Hemmer formerly of CNN. Rudy Giuliani and wife Judith will be there along with a long list of other east end celebrities.
Now last but not least … the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons better known as ARF is hosting ther 23rd annual GARDEN TOUR of 6 gardens in East Hampton. The tour is Saturday from 10am to 4pm followed by cocktails from 4-6pm. Get more details at http://www.arfhamptons.org/events.ihtml
If you’re not familiar with ARF .. I encourage you to explore the web site. They’re a shelter for animals in need and they do an awesome job… my own Boo is a shelter dog but you would think she came from Tiffany’s (she has attitude). When you’re there… read about Heidi above and see what you can do to help!!
Sorry I was MIA for a few days but it was MY turn to make the doughnuts!
