Request from Clarence: One of my hobbies is running a free cajun accordion loan program. I get a lot of requests to borrow an accordion from aspiring musicians. If you are feeling generous and would like to support a good cajun cause, how about making a financial contribution to help me buy another accordion to loan out? Please read more about it at Clarence's Cajun Accordion Loan Program.
