Expect a bit of Bossa Nova as well.

Four course VIP dinners are being offered on Saturday and on Sunday created byaward winning chefs from the Southeast. Both dinners will include wine pairings chosen by wine expert Adam Caperton (former owner of Larder on 30A) as well as special musical guests to be announced at a later date. Several VIP packages offering VIP seating sections in the bigger venues, exclusive personal town car or limousine transportation for the entire weekend and a VIP tent serving complementary lunch, beer and wine at Gulf Place Amphitheater are available online at www.30asongwritersfestival.com

Goodness in other people and what they contribute inspire me. I love it when someone is gifted and shares it in some way so that it has a trickle-down effect. Be Inspired.

Someday, the realm of liberty and justice will encompass the planet. Freedom is not just the birthright of the few, it is the God-given right of all His children, in every country. It won't come by conquest. It will come, because freedom is right and freedom works. It will come, because cooperation and goodwill among free people will carry the day.
