They travel from far and wide
to various party destinations
— students in pursuit of their
right of passage known as
Spring Break. Yet, I remain
at home — hard at work and
focused on my duties as the
"Show Biz Guru."

As many of my readers are aware, I too am a college student — albeit a really old one. And hey, I still like to have fun too, ya know. But while so many of my academic peers are out having the time of their lives — trashing hotel rooms, leaping from balconies and puking their brains out, I continue working and studying at my Florida home. And I wouldn't have it any other way!

For starters, I want to apologize to Spring Breakers who have traveled such distances with great expectations of partying like rock stars while basking in our warm climate. Yes, this is Florida. And no, it's not typically this stinking cold in late March. But believe me, by early April, this place is gonna once again become a tropical paradise. I guess timing is everything.

It's been a banner Spring Break week here on The Show Biz Guru, as I recently celebrated my 200th post — a review of the latest record release from one of my all-time favorite bands, Stryper.

And speaking of writing, my third book is developing at a crazy pace. For now, I will remain tight-lipped regarding the project, however, I will say that it's a flippin' AMAZING story! I'll be sharing more details in the weeks to come. Stand by.

And speaking of books, I recently received a copy of Full Tilt — the second in author Creston Mapes' popular "Rock Star Chronicles" series. Simply put, for me, Full Tilt delivers — a bona fide page-turner indeed. I expect to post an in depth review of Full Tilt SOON!

But Spring Break is supposed to be about living on the edge, not sittin' at home reading. You know, cutting loose for a few days and just going crazy. And in that regard, I will be attending the social event of the year — the "Space Coast Cupcake Challenge" at the Viera Regional Community Center in Viera, Florida on Saturday, March 30th. What's it all about? I don't know for sure, but I do know that the area's top bakers will be on-hand and there will be HUNDREDS OF FREE CUPCAKES. Count me in! I'm delighted to have been invited, and be sure that there WILL be a major feature recounting my cupcake caper coming next week.

Finally, Sunday March 31st is Easter — the "Super Bowl" for us believers. And I'm honored to have been asked to participate in a special Easter presentation at my church in Merritt Island, Florida. Although my contribution does not require me to recite any lines, it is a music-based bit that will involve me counting to four. Oh the pressure of show business.

I hope that everyone has a safe and awesome Spring Break and a wonderful Easter holiday. Just remember that Jesus Christ IS the reason for season!
