Barry Gibb at birthday party TG Sheppard

Kelly surprised me with an incredible Birthday party @Eaupalmbeachresort in West Palm Beach, FL.
I was also surprised when dear friends Barry & Linda Gibb along with some of their family Ashley,Therese & Lucas joined us for the three day w...
eekend. One of Kelly's gifts to me was a video filled with Birthday wishes from special friends and family..96 wishes total. I would love to mention every wish that I received but it would be impossible and didn't want to overlook anyone. I must admit that one of the highlights from the video was President George Bush 41. I didn't think it could get any better until Barry took out his Guitar and sang with us under a cabana for almost three hours overlooking the ocean. It was truly a magical evening and Birthday that I will never forget. Thanks to all of my incredible friends who sent Birthday wishes..and Kelly for loving me so much.

Meaning of Songs

THE MEANING OF SONGSCollaborator:Stephan Koenig ALONE (1997) BARRY GIBB: What the song's really about is that little child inside. It's that abstract feeling we all have that no matter how close or how many relatives we have or how many people around us we love, we still feel alone. There's an aloneness about all of us. That "How do I, why is it always end up alone?" Well, I'm not alone, but I might feel alone, that no one really thinks the way I do. I guess that's because everybody's unique in their own way.
