Santa in Caribbean Retreat Making Free Personalized Videos From Santa Claus

Santa Claus found at a remote Caribbean Retreat making his Free Personalized Santa Video Greetings. We found Santa and all his little elves in a way you never could have imagined Santa before. We were following up on a lead that someone spotted Santa Claus strolling down a remote beach while they were vacationing in the Caribbean. We decided to go see for ourselves and we took our children along for a little vacation. On the third day of combing the beaches our little girl started shouting daddy, daddy, look it’s Santa Clause. I grabbed the camcorder and started filming and the old man spun around and started running so we chased him, and then he just stopped and said, “Ok, you got me, but if you keep it down and I’ll share a little secret, follow me”. As we were walking he admitted he was the real Santa Claus and why he wanted to keep it down, and then out of nowhere about 30 little elves came running all around us on the beach. Santa showed us his cozy retreat and the Personalized Video Greetings from Santa Claus he and Mrs. Clause were making. Santa said he had an idea for a great way all the children could stay in touch with him all year round, anytime a child wants to.

What a great idea from Santa, and what a way for all the children to see Santa Claus throughout the year with their very own Free Personalized Santa Video Greeting. All you need to do is just fill out a simple little form on the Free Personalized Santa Video Greeting website with your child’s name, your email and the gender of your child.

KISS Star Gene Simmons’ Therapist On His Issues: ‘Do I Have To Pick Just One?’

Dr. Ann Wexler is a Beverly Hills-based psychologist specializing in couples therapy. She is currently appearing on Gene Simmons Family Jewels, where she has been helping the KISS star and his longtime partner Shannon Tweed sort through their relationship troubles. In a new interview with Examiner.com, when asked to identify Simmons’ primary therapy issue Wexler quipped, “Wow. Do I have to pick just one?”

On a more serious note she said, “When I very first met him, I thought, ‘Wow, we really need to break through this rock star persona, this TV persona. We have to break through this and I need to find out who he really is. I need to get to who he really is for us to do real work.’ And it turned out that he really did let me in, but I didn’t know if he was going to.”

Dr. Wexler said that Simmons’ public displays of cockiness are actually a front to cover up insecurities that stem from his father abandoning him when he was a child. “I believe that insecurity has stayed with him his whole life,” she stated. “Even though he’s been so hugely successful, and he’s so talented, he still has this feeling deep inside of having to prove that he’s the man. And I think that’s why he sometimes comes off with an overblown self-confidence.”

The show’s season finale airs Tuesday night, and previews show Simmons finally proposing to Tweed after 28 years of being, as he terms it, “happily unmarried.” Wexler said that despite the hard work she’s done with the couple, the decision whether to stay together or go their separate ways has to come from them. “I don’t have an agenda as a psychologist. It’s not my place to determine whether a couple should stay together or be apart,” she observed. “I work with the couple based on what they each express, what they each need and want, both as individuals and as a couple. “

Art and Freedom Begins in Europe

From the beginning of the last century in Europe we have seen the Finnish civil war, the war in Estonia, Hungary, the Irish civil war, the civil war in Russia and subsequent invasions of Poland and Hungary, the Spanish civil war, the Yugoslav, Kosovo, Croatian, Bosnian wars of attrition and, of course, two world wars. The history of Europe is awash in blood. As the man says, “if we keep on doing what we are doing, we will keep on getting what we are getting.”

The imperative therefore is to try something different. And the something different we must try is accessing the communicative power of art to raise consciousness of our collective culpability in these avoidable disasters.

What is required is nothing less than a revolution in the human psyche, say the organizers. This is a spiritual battle, make no mistake, where right-thinking men and women can unite on the basis of empathy and awareness of our brotherhood as a single species to undo much of the damage inflicted upon us all by lying injunctions, demented political leadership, propaganda and belief systems concerning territory and religion that simply have no longer any place in a modern world striving towards peace and sanity.

To this end, two men from Vordernberg in Austria, Irishman Desmond Doyle and his colleague Hannes Misseton have initiated a unique cultural program called “Art of Reconciliation” as a service to Europe’s struggle for peace. Both men are sworn to help put an end to the bloodbaths of Europe.

They have the full support of many who think like themselves notably Nobel Peace Laureate John Hume who is an active participant in this venture. Desmond Doyle has worked for a quarter of a century in Germany and Austria in the world of culture and politics. As an Irishman he knows what civic and national conflict is all about; as a life-long student of European politics he knows that some initiative to put things right is better than no initiative at all. He and Hannes know profoundly what has to be done.

To find out what exciting projects they have planned for Austria this September in conjunction with the famous Bogside Artists of Derry, Northern Ireland, we encourage you to visit their website. www.art-of-reconciliation.com.

Guitarist Tom Hess Releases A New Record With His Band Rhapsody Of Fire

Tom Hess and Rhapsody Of Fire are excited to announce the release of the band’s latest studio album: “From Chaos to Eternity” that hit the stores on June 17, 2011.

Hess, (who joined the band earlier in 2011 and recorded all the rhythm guitars for the band’s latest release) has just returned from a concert festival in Sweden where the band performed in front of over 9000 people. Even bigger concerts will follow later in the summer of 2011 including the Wacken Open Air festival in Germany.

Complete list of upcoming performances is available on the Rhapsody Of Fire tour dates page.

Luca Turilli, the guitar player and songwriter for Rhapsody Of Fire, made this announcement about the new record: “This historical release will end the band’s sagas once and for all after 15 years of fantasy-oriented lyrics. For the last time, we’ll hear Sir Christopher Lee narrating in one of our albums the last dramatic events of a legendary tale started in 1997 and told through ten full-length albums. This release will remain in the history of the band for its artistic importance and unique epic!”

To help guitar players and Rhapsody Of Fire fans to learn more about the recording process of the new record, Hess also has published a free studio recording guide for guitar players who want to learn to play consistently well in the studio and create great sounding recordings. Hess states: “When I was recording my guitar parts for “From Chaos to Eternity”, I realized that many other guitar players would benefit greatly from learning how to become a better musician in the studio. This free studio recording guide for guitar players goes into detail about the recording tips and secrets that I used to record the rhythm guitar parts for the album.”

Hess also mentors musicians on how to develop a successful music career and he says that the new experiences of playing with Rhapsody Of Fire will help him to add even greater value to the musicians he trains in his Music Careers Mentoring Program. “Although I already have a lot of experience with touring the world as well as recording and releasing professional records, every new significant development in my own music career gives me greater opportunity to pass more experience and value to the musicians I mentor”, states Hess.
