At a time when many Americans are focused on a good-time weekend of personal leisure — barbeques, getaway excursions and the official kick-off of the summer season, I feel compelled to take a moment and recognize the true meaning of Memorial Day.
It's a time that has been set aside to remember and honor the brave men and women in uniform who have lost their lives throughout the years defending our great nation. Simply put, we likely would not be enjoying any of the festivities that we've come to associate with this holiday if it weren't for those who gave everything.
I have deep respect and admiration for these heroes, and today I'd like to say, "thank you." I never will forget your sacrifice and I always will be grateful.

I had a wonderful time last night attending the Maps and Atlases, The Big Sleep and Sister Crayon show at Orlando's fabulous Plaza Live theater. My official review will post on Ink19.com in the next few days.
I have also now signed on officially to represent the Florida-based music act, War In Vegas. We will be shooting their first video and begin the production of their debut record immediately. I will keep you posted on developments throughout the summer.
