HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY EVERYONE OUT THERE IN MUSICLAND!: Hope you have someone special to share this day with. I am going to spend my day with my hubby. It's warmer, the snow is melting, and we are going to do a little shopping and lunch together. We wish you a wonderful day of your own! God is good!!
What do you mean Mardi Gras? : Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday, meaning the day before Ash Wednesday when Lent begins. I was asked what I do to celebrate Mardi Gras.
I'm not from Louisiana where it is a legal holiday. I didn't grow up celebrating Carnival, which runs from Jan 6 until the Tuesday of Mardi Gras.
Do I make jambalaya, gumbo, or dirty rice? Do I buy a King's Cake?
It isn't my celebration. Period! That's it! That's like asking me what I do for Kwanza or Hannukkah... I have nothing against these celebrations or the people who celebrate them. They just aren't my celebrations.
Newsflash - Patrick Lew is taking an indefinite hiatus from the scene: Still making music. Taking a sabbatical from getting myself involved with the music scene currently.When I'll be back, it depends on what's going on in life and the things come my way related to music itself. I'm just confined and retired to just being a home recording musician hobbyist and the occasional freelance with others. Until something big happens in the near future if possible.
