Happy Birthday Rick!

Today is Rick Padilla's Birthday. Continuing our "Meet the Vineyard" series, Rick is a musician who has lived on the Vineyard for many years, but he originally comes from Cuba. He was raised in Cuba by his grandparents, who instilled in him his old world manners and morals, Rick has a big heart and is always more than willing to help anyone out!
Last summer we discovered we have mutual friends, Venus DeMars and Lynette. Rick helped me produce a music event with Venus on the Vineyard. It was an amazing show! Check out Venus!

Rick can almost always be found hanging posters for his latest show, when he is not working or practicing music! He didn't earn the name "Rock and Roll Rick" for nothing!
On a Hillary note, Rick is a huge Hillary supporter. Like the rest of us, he is feeling like the rug has been pulled out from under him. Rick will not vote for Obama because he doesn't trust Obama. He has done his research and has decided he will vote for McCain. Rick's reasons are well thought out and not just reactionary. I respect Rick's decision even though I don't feel the same way. To each their own!
Did I say S.H.I.R.L.E.Y. yet?

I'm with you about McCain. But I am running into all kinds of friends with all their different takes on things. This doesn't happen to be a view I agree with, but I do love me some Rick and it's interesting to hear different view points during a time when everyone is trying to adapt to this political scenario! I say
OBAMA/CLINTON! Just as long as Hillary's in the picture I'm in! If not, back to the old drawing board! Saying Hillary isn't relevant leaves everybody yearning!
