HAPPY MARCH 21 BIRTHDAY TO….JERRY DOWNS…CLIFF NOWAK…SCOTT MUIR! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO……The LIVESAYS!!!!

BRUCE MOORE & TERRI WHITE AT THE GRAND FINALE OF AQUA IDOL, MARCH 21 …I am personally inviting you to attend the GRAND FINALE OF what has been a wonderful fundraiser for the Waterfront Playhouse. This event began on Jan. 10 with 14 singers and now we have our FINAL FOUR…all talented and amazing!!! If you have not yet attended, I ask that you please TRY to attend our sure- to- be….GRAND FINALE!!! You are guaranteed to have a great time while helping out the esteemed Waterfront Playhouse raise funds. Your presence there would mean the world to me, and to the theater and our contestants. It also gives you a great chance to welcome Home to Key West, BRUCE MOORE, after his many months of chemotherapy. I thank all of our regular attendees with ALL my heart and I hope you tell all your friends how fun and entertaining it is! Read below about what to expect on Tuesday, March 21 at Aqua Idol at 711 Duval St.

****AQUA IDOL 2017 ON MARCH 21….. Another super enthusiastic standing room only crowd witnessed one of the ALL TIME Best Aqua Idol Contests EVER last Tuesday, 3/14.!!!! On Tues. March 14, we sadly lost 3 of our fabulous contestants…. Vicky Hedberg, Arthur Crocker and Gina Salerno!!!! At the end of the evening our Top Final Four were announced and they are…..BOB WOOD….BILL MELCHIOR …SARAH DORRANCE….and DESTINY MONTGOMERY. On March 21, they will be singing two songs….and at the end of the evening…based on the amount they each raise on March 21 only, the order of #1 through #4 will be announced. Each is a star… and each will receive a wonderful prize package…this year, I have assembled a prize package valued at over $35,000 in prizes….to be shared amongst the Top 4!!! If you want a good seat, make sure you get there early enough to claim one!

Not only will you enjoy the great songs delivered by our Top 4 Contestants, but we have many special surprises in store for you. Joining Tony Konrath and I as celebrity Guest Judge will be the fabulous BRUCE MOORE, who is flying in especially to be at the Finale. You may remember, BRUCE was the Aqua Idol winner in 2015. This Broadway Baby, who had lived in KW for many years, has had a very challenging year….Diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, he has been going through bi-weekly bouts of chemo since Sept. His last one was March 7. In 6 weeks he will find out his status, health wise. We are all praying that the chemo worked and he can go on with his life. Anyway, I invited him to Key West, and he said he is feeling up to joining us on this BIG night, and we are keeping our fingers crossed that he will also be able to sing a guest song…he claims the months of chemo have taken a bit of a toll on his voice….that we all hope is just temporary…. Another fab guest singer will be there too…. TERRI WHITE….. Others will sing too, including Al Romano …while the money is being counted, if time permits. All this gloriousness is FREE to attend …happy hour drink prices served by Fantasy Fest King Mark Watson … amazing entertainment …loads of fun while raising money for a great cause, THE WATERFRONT PLAYHOUSE! Come and see & hear what everyone has been talking about for months!!!! And come early…at least by 5:40 if you want a seat. Showtime is 6:30 to 8 pm!!!! If you have a fave contestant, it is important that you be there and you vote with $$$$… and if you can’t be there vote online!!

TERRI WHITE NEEDS YOUR HELP!!!!…Our dear friend, Terri White has a rare blood disease called Little Chain Deposition Disease and Multiple Myeloma. The treatment of this very serious malady is chemotherapy and it is very costly. Unfortunately, Terri does NOT have insurance. Treatments are $1,500 a week plus $1,000 for prescriptions. She and partner, Donna Barnett, are doing everything possible to acquire financial aid, but to no avail. TERRI IS IN DIRE NEED OF YOUR HELP AT THIS CHALLENGING TIME. A GO FUND ME Account has been established to help her. Terri has done much volunteering for others in the community, and now she needs YOUR help. Please go to the Go Fund Me Site to contribute whatever you can.

Go to https://www.gofundme.com/terri-white-medical-fund?ssid=805222351&pos=1. I hope and pray that you will find it in your heart to be kind and generous. If you have any thoughts or suggestions, I ask that you please contact Donna Barnett at donnab410@aol.com. Thank you.

BIRTHDAY/ANNIVERSARY LISTS….If you would like to be included in the Birthday and Anniversary Lists that I send out every month, please let me know your month and day by sending that info to me at kwlynda@bellsouth.net. There are special perks to being on the lists!!!! One of the perks is having your name in KONK Life on the day of your Birthday!

PRAYER CHAIN…..Please continue to remember the following in your thoughts and prayers…Bruce Moore…..the family & friends of Richard Kruszynski ……Terri White …Bob Esty ….Nancy Lima…the de Boer Family on the loss of their father, Herman … the family & friends of John Renzi, husband of Betty Renzi… the family & friends of Noreen Collins on the loss of her sister, Mary Rita….Snake Collins…..

Remember, there are many reasons that we pray…not just because people are ill…. I do believe that when we all send prayers and good vibes to those in need, those prayers mystically meet and surround those being prayed for. Sometimes we pray for miracles and the impossible….sometimes we pray to just cope with the results of what happens to those we are praying for. Sometimes we pray for strength to go on and to accept…sometimes we pray for thanksgiving. We are in this thing called ‘Life’ together….and we all have power within us to help our fellow man. Bless you for remembering our loved ones….Prayer changes things! Let me know if you know of anyone who should be added to this list.

THE ARIES PERSONALITY…MARCH 21 THROUGH APRIL 20

It is hard to ignore the Arien….they have so much personality and vitality, making them the sort of people who like to be noticed! They hate taking back seat in life and will do anything to prevent it! They are natural leaders, not followers. The last thing any Arien wants to do is carry out other people’s orders or be at their beck and call. They loathe being just one of the crowd, and this attitude doesn’t change as they get older. They have to be in control of situations and do not like it one bit when it is the other way around. Life is very black & white for Ariens, with no grey area. They are very idealistic, and always have high expectations that things will turn out well. They have a burning desire to achieve…have an infectious enthusiasm and an adventurous spirit. An Arien without a goal is a sad sight, as they are lost without anything to aim for. They are easy to lose their tempers but it is all over in a flash. One minute they may be shouting their heads off and the next they have forgotten all about it. They do have a problem with bluntness…they like to tell it like it is and this sometimes leads to hurt feelings when they go too far and do not realize the impact of their words. They are outspoken….and if they curb that it would take so much fun out of things! In love, they dream of fairytale romances…they love the thrill of the chase, often finding it the most exciting part of a relationship….often cooling off when they get what they want. Their generous spirit and warm personality make them wonderful friends and delightful lovers. Sex is very important to them and they enjoy a very physical relationship with their partners. They have the utmost faith and trust in people. They fall in love easily and invest everything in their lover. Their hearts are shattered when that partner fails to live up to their expectations. They have a tendency to put loved ones on a pedestal, thinking they can do no wrong. All is great while they are on that pedestal but the moment they turn out to be human, the Arien is crushed and let down and in lots of pain. However, Ariens do not learn from their mistakes and often repeat them over and over again! The best signs for an Aries are Capricorn, Gemini, and Scorpio. In careers, the Arien cannot be tied down as they are free spirits. They must have a job with room to breathe. They hate having a job which requires them to account for their every action. They will become bored and frustrated in these situations. They prefer being self-employed because most Ariens have a low opinion of their higher ups. Their competitive nature makes them natural freelancers…they love coming up with new ideas. Jobs like engineering, mechanics, the armed services, and sports appeal to Ariens. They are better at dreaming up ideas than in following them. They cannot live without money…love spending it and are suckers for impulse buys. They love spending on cars, special bikes, and are attracted to speed and danger. They are also very generous and spend lots of money on friends and loved ones. Saving money is not as interesting to an Arien as spending it. They live for today and not to morrow!!

WE LOVE OUR ARIEN FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS!!!!

Please read the lists below and take time to add their names to your datebooks so you can reach out to them on their special days!!!
