I pushed back from my desk, sat up straight, and then stretched a bit to relieve the tension from my sore shoulders and back. I looked at the massive pile of unopened letters and correspondence sitting on my desk and sighed heavily. You would think I had not done any work for the last two hours in looking at that pile!

What an exhausting month. The Caledon 5th Anniversary was nigh on 30 days ago and I still haven't had time to compile the Caledon Oxbridge fundraising results for the Deans, the Guvnah and the community. I continue to find people passed out in the alleys of New Toulouse from Mardi Gras, and I just deposit them into the Pension so they can sleep it off.

Reservations for New Toulouse Jardin II have stalled. I need to get the word out about the new sim so I can get the number of residents I need to ensure the sim will fly. I won't add another sim to New Toulouse if it's just not financially feasible for the community. Maybe some of the passed out Mardi Gras dru…

Now Taking Reservations for New Toulouse Jardin (Part Deux)

I am now taking reservations for the next sim in New Toulouse: New Toulouse Jardin.

The planning map is in New Toulouse's Laveau Square at .

New Toulouse Jardin will be the fifth sim in the New Toulouse community. It will sit on the grid directly east of the New Toulouse sim.

Note: This is actually the second incarnation of New Toulouse Jardin. The first was converted into New Toulouse Bourbon. I (Gabrielle) feel that this new version more accurately reflects both NT's New Orleans theme and better serves the wants and needs of NT residents.
