It’s been a great Memorial Day weekend, put in a lot of practice and recording time. The recordings for the new CD are on time as planned and almost done.

The trip to Portugal (Europe) is planned out and I am READY.
I love Europe, being back to my roots is my big dream, one that may come true now that my wife has given her OK also. So soon we will be saying good bye to the USA as a home and moving to Portugal, my home land. There’s nothing like being back to the places of my childhood.

I moved to the USA with my parents when I was 16 but have always had a broken heart about it. Now as I get older, it seems to be getting harder to be so far away. I love Europe..! As for the US, I’ll return as a visitor and will always be thankful for the great opportunities it has given me.
