Viva Las Vegas & Roadie Palooza!

It was a rainy day in Las Vegas on October 20th for the sixth annual Roadie Palooza at the Double Down Saloon. It's an annual gathering of Roadies held by ROADIE.NET to celebrate the ROADIE life. Despite the weather and the middle of the week date many roadies came out to see old friends and the award presentations.

The awards ceremony followed. The first award was to Jef Hickey RFL, who was unable to attend. Jef received a "Lifetime Achievement Award" for his contributions to The Show." Jef started in the business at age 15 with bands like Motorhead, Twisted Sister, Megadeth and many others.

The second award was to John "Boom Boom" Watkins, a legendary Pyro Roadie. John pretty much invented the use of pyrotechnics at rock shows back in the 70's and has worked with artists which include Kiss, Bon Jovi, Journey, Van Halen (Hagar version), Michael Jackson, Rick James, and Ronnie Jamies Dio. John was honored for his contributions to The Show and specifically to being the father of Pyro.

Hannah's Last Days as an Eighth Grader!

Hannah wrapped up her middle school career at Barrington Christian Academy with quite a string of important events.  A Sports Banquet, School Play and of course, Eighth Grade Graduation.

THE SPORTS BANQUET

Hannah sang the Spar-Spangled Banner as a duet with her friend Emily to open the sports banquet festivities. Of course, I was running late from an appointment, so made them re-perform it for me in the back hallway of the school! LOL!!!

Hannah received the Most Valuable Player award for the second year in a row.  As the point guard, she scored 144 points for the season, leading her team to a 14-1 record.


Swish!

My girl in Action!!

Hannah is a fierce competitor and not just an outstanding basketball player! She also received an award for placing 3rd in hurdles in a regional track meet out of 37 teams!

Puerto Rico - The Island of Enchantment

For Hannah's April spring break we headed to Puerto Rico.  Marcus has been there hundreds of times with the Air National Guard on specific missions.  Hannah and I had vacationed there years ago....probably six to be exact.  I'm so glad we went back!   We experienced life on the opposite side of the island from San Juan, on the Coast Guard base in Borenquen.  The Base is located in a fairly secluded area and right on "Survivors Beach", a nearly deserted beach.  It was paradise!



PR has over 300 miles of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean, a large Tropical Rain forest, a Cave System millions of years old, and a Dry Forest filled with Cactus.
Puerto Rico is one of the top five destinations for shore diving the Caribbean/Atlantic region.  The ocean temperatures are 81ºF and underwater visibility averages from 60 to 75 feet near the beach. Offshore it is easily 100 feet or more! Literally a diver's paradise!


When I take vacations with my friends they are rarely trips of leisure...but Marcus planned this trip knowing full well, I need a break from my business and from my fast-paced Barcelona trip the month before!

 

Did you know the Pina Colada was supposedly invented in Puerto Rico?  I'll drink to that!

 A relaxing, and memorable trip....a time of peace and reflection with my peeps!

Remembering Barcelona

Barcelona, "Gaudi's City" was my destination of choice for the month of March! What a great choice it was...full of art, architecture, fashion, food and fun!  I traveled with my friend Catherine, with whom I've been to five different countries including France, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Turkey, and now Spain.

Many famous artists came out of Spain including Pablo Picasso, Anton Gaudi (architect), and surrealist painter, Joan Miro.  Gaudi's architectural influence is everywhere in the city...thus the nickname "Gaudi's City". 

 
  
Barcelona has been at the centre of the Street Art Movement for over a decade, inspiring writers & artists the world over.  This unique artistic expression can be seen everywhere.

I visited my second Olympic Stadium of the year. The 1992 Summer Olympics were held in Barcelona.

One of the main highlights of my trip was meeting Nunu, my Barcelonian-based massage therapist.  It is a rare treat when I get to meet one of my European therapists! 

She was a delight and besides giving myself and Catherine each an awesome massage...which we needed after many hours of airplane travel and hours of sightseeing on foot...she also took us to many local digs...including an authentic Flamenco club. 


A visit to the Benedictine Monk retreat at Montserrat offered some of the most spectacular mountain views of Catalunya.

We took a break from Barcelona’s frenetic pace to venture into the countryside of Catalonia.  We enjoyed lunch in a winery where local families eat on Sundays.  We began our meal with glasses of cava, Spanish sparkling wine, and ended with a splurge on roasted veggies, tapas, lamb, sausage, and ended with the traditional carmalized-flan!

Barcelona Baby!  I'll be back!
