Montana has always been my home.  Even during the times I have lived away for various reasons, it has been the place I consider “home”.  Home is a interesting name for a place.  It implies a heritage, a history, a sense of belonging.  It is where you are from and a large part of who you are and how you came to be that way. Yep, Montana has always been home.  I was born here, and will always be “from Montana”. But times change, people change, places change.  The world will always find a way to throw new challenges and opportunities at you.  It’s a big world out there. When the Cosmic Baker (as Jimmy Buffett would say) was mixing the recipe for our family, He added quite a bit more wanderlust than most people have.  Growing up, we moved around quite a bit.  This opened up the world, showing my sister and I that there is a lot out there; a lot more than just the here and now and what we are used to.  With that added dash of wanderlust comes an intellectual curiosity about the world around me, filled with new places to see, new cultures to experience, and new things to try. Long story short, I’m leaving Montana.  In a couple of weeks, I’ll be packing my shit up and heading to Gig Harbor, Washington. Why Gig Harbor? Several reasons.  When I first visited Washington this past July to visit the folks, I was really surprised.  I had always held this vision of the Puget Sound area as a drab, dreary, crowded, blah kind of place.  While it does have its drab and dreary days, and God knows it’s crowded, it was so much more than I thought it would be.  The area holds a lot.  You have the amenities of the city, but still have mountains and wilderness close by.  The salt water is particularly alluring.  I’ve always wanted to learn to sail… The fishing has also always held a particular appeal to me.  The pursuit of anadromous species is completely foreign to me.  It will be an interesting challenge.  Not to mention the numerous fish in the salt water (such as sea run cutthroat), the bass, panfish, musky and trout in the lakes and ponds, and the trout streams in the mountains.  There is so much variety, so many options. But as to why Gig Harbor in particular, I am pleased to announce that I will be joining the staff at Gig Harbor Fly Shop as their video/blogging/social media/shop help/photo/etc etc guy.  It will be great working with a good group of guys in a small shop.  And what better way to learn the fishery than working in a fly shop! Leaving Montana is always hard.  But it isn’t the same place it once was.  Bozeman in particular has changed drastically in the past five years.  It is almost hard to recognize anymore.  It is full of tailgating drivers and shiny cars, and if you take the time to talk to a group of people, three out of five of them have just moved here from California in the past year.  It is growing so drastically, and changing into something I hate to see.  It happened to Colorado, it happened to Jackson, and now it’s happening here too. Bozeangles indeed. It is always hard to leave good friends behind, and I have been blessed with many here in Bozeman.  To you guys, I say this.  I’ll be back in town to hunt and fish, and if you ever want to come visit, you have a free place to stay!  Good friends still stay friends, no matter how far away they are.  Montana will always be here, and will only be a car ride away.  We’ve had some damn good times around here this past year and a half… I am young and unattached.  There is no better time in my life to just pick up and move somewhere new.  Talking to my mentor Craig (who lived in the area for many years) about it, he said that some of the things he most regrets are not taking the chances like this he had when he was younger.  Life is short. So here we go again.  Off to bigger and brighter things, things that will shape me and change me in ways I can’t even begin to imagine.  And when you think about it, that is pretty damn exciting.

Artist: Frank Sinatra Title: Best of Duets Deluxe Edition Super Deluxe Box Set Release Date: November 19, 2013 Label: Capitol/UMe Format(s): 1-CD, 2-CDs, 2-LPs, 2-CD/2-LP/DVD What was referred to as “The Recording Event of the Decade,” Frank Sinatra’s groundbreaking and highly successful album Duets was originally released in November 1993, bringing together an array of global superstars, including Charles Aznavour, Anita Baker, Tony Bennett, Bono, Natalie Cole, Gloria Estefan, Aretha Franklin, Kenny G, Julio Iglesias, Liza Minnelli, Carly Simon, Barbra Streisand, and Luther Vandross for an album of standards that included many songs instantly associated with the Chairman of the Board. To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the groundbreaking, multi-platinum selling album, Capitol/UMe will release Frank Sinatra: Sinatra Duets - Twentieth Anniversary, on November 19, 2013, bringing together the original Duets and the follow-up Duets II, together in one deluxe package. Frank Sinatra: Sinatra Duets - Twentieth Anniversary will be available in three editions: Super Deluxe Box Set featuring Duets and Duets II 180-gram vinyl records in a gatefold LP jacket, two CDs including Duets and Duets II with bonus and unreleased tracks, a standard DVD featuring interviews, the official EPK and a promo video of I’ve Got You Under My Skin duet with Bono, plus a 20-page LP sized booklet with rare photos and new liner notes, an embossed lithograph with envelope, all housed in an elegant 12”x12” box complete with a gold foil-stamped title. Two-CD Deluxe Edition with bonus and unreleased tracks and a 32-page booklet with rare photos and new liner notes. Two-LP vinyl version of the original Duets and Duets II releases on 180-gram vinyl, gatefold jacket. The Super Deluxe Edition and 2-CD Deluxe Edition releases will include two never-before-released recordings, One for My Baby (And One More for the Road) featuring Tom Scott and Embraceable You with Tanya Tucker, plus the rare bonus tracks Fly Me to the Moon with George Strait, and two versions of My Way, one recorded with Luciano Pavarotti and the other with Willie Nelson. In addition to these three anniversary editions, Capitol/UMe will also release Best Of Duets, a 14-song, single-disc collection featuring key tracks from both Duets and Duets II and the bonus track My Way featuring Luciano Pavarotti. Sinatra recorded his tracks “live” with a 54-piece orchestra at the Capitol studios, the way he originally recorded his classic Capitol albums. In a pioneering move for the recording industry, at various locations using digital technology, Sinatra’s ‘duet’ partners recorded their own vocal tracks to his recordings, allowing them to virtually ‘duet’ with one of the greatest entertainers of all time. Duets made history, not only for its cutting edge recording techniques, and having a renowned contemporary artist, LeRoy Neiman, specially commissioned for album artwork, but for being one of the most successful selling albums of the year, with the album shipping more than 1.3 million units and putting the 77-year-old Sinatra at the No. 2 spot on the Billboard charts, between Pearl Jam’s Vs. and Meatloaf’s Bat Out Of Hell II. The highly successful follow-up, Duets II, was released the following year and included Jimmy Buffett, Neil Diamond, Lena Horne, Chrissie Hynde, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Patti LaBelle, Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme, Luis Miguel, Lorrie Morgan, Willie Nelson, Linda Ronstadt, Jon Secada, Frank Sinatra Jr., Stevie Wonder & Gladys Knight. Once again, Sinatra enjoyed a multiplatinum Top 10 record on the charts with Duets II at No. 9 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart. Even after 50 years of recording, Sinatra continued to blaze a trail for artists and once again cut across all musical genres. These unique recordings are tributes to his legacy and to the immeasurable impact and influence he continues to have on music today. Track List: Deluxe Edition Disc 1

Hollywood is about to see another high-profile split as Richard Gere and Carey Lowell, who have been married for 11 years, are reportedly set to divorce. According to Page Six, the couple has already separated, as Gere’s low-key lifestyle no longer meshes with Lowell’s penchant for socializing. “They have a place in Bedford (New York), and he likes it because it’s quiet and he likes the solitude,” an inside source told Page Six. “She likes being in North Haven in the limelight. They live next door to Jimmy Buffett and his family, and they’re good friends.” RelatedMichael Douglas says he and wife Catherine Zeta-Jones are ‘fine’ despite separation The two, who dated for seven years prior to their November 2002 wedding, haven’t been photographed together since an  screening of Gere’s film Arbitrage in August 2012. They have a 13-year-old son, Homer James Jigme Gere. “They’ll do everything possible to keep things amicable and put their child first.” a friend of the couple told People. It won’t be the first divorce for either actor: Pretty Woman star Gere split from supermodel Cindy Crawford in 1995, after four years of marriage, while former Bond girl Lowell was previously married to both actor Griffin Dunne and photographer John Stember. Next month, Gere will head to Philadelphia to begin filming Franny, an indie film where his hedonistic philanthropist character will try to re-create his old life by infiltrating the lives of a newlywed couple.

Richard Gere and his wife of 11 years, Carey Lowell, who haven’t been photographed together since a Hamptons screening of his Wall Street thriller “Arbitrage” last year, have separated and are planning to file for divorce, according to the New York Post’s Page Six. Gere, 64, and model/actress Lowell, 52, have “been spending time apart for quite some time.” said one source close to the couple. The source added that it’s unclear when the couple will file for divorce. The couple, married for 11 years, have been living apart for some time, with Gere staying at their property in Bedford, N.Y., and Lowell, at their historic mansion in North Haven, N.Y. Another source added that the two have drifted into different lifestyles as the Buddhist actor craves privacy and Lowell, a former Bond girl, likes socializing with other bigwigs. “They have a place in Bedford [NY], and he likes it because it’s quiet and he likes the solitude. She likes being in North Haven in the limelight.” The insider added, “They live next door to Jimmy Buffett and his family, and they’re good friends.” Gere and Lowell have a son, Homer. A friend of the couple tells People, “They’ll do everything possible to keep things amicable and put their child first.” According to Hello!, after their marriage in 2002, Gere stated that “We are adults who have been through marriage before and do not take it lightly. I felt married from the moment I met her, to tell the truth.” Richard Gere was named PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive in 1999. He was previously married to supermodel Cindy Crawford. Lowell has two previous marriages. She was married to fashion photographer John Stember and to actor-director Griffin Dunne, with whom she has a 23-year-old daughter, Hannah.

Carey Lowell wanted to enjoy a high-society lifestyle in the Hamptons, socializing and taking in parties at Jimmy Buffet’s house next door. Richard Gere wanted a more quiet existence, practicing Buddhism and working on social causes. In the end the differing views were too much for the couple, who have separated and are planning to divorce. “They have a place in Bedford [New York], and he likes it because it’s quiet and he likes the solitude,” an insider told the New York Post’s Page Six. “She likes being in North Haven in the limelight. They live next door to Jimmy Buffett and his family, and they’re good friends.” Gere and Lowell have been married for the last 11 years, but sources say they have drifted apart greatly in recent months. The two have only been seen together in public a handful of times in the last year, and not since the Golden Globe Awards in January. Though Gere may have been the bigger name in the couple, Carey Lowell is a fairly high-profile celebrity in her own right. The 52-year-old actress appeared as a Bond girl in License to Kill opposite Timothy Dalton, and has played Assistant District Attorney Jamie Ross on Law & Order. Before acting, Lowell caught her big break as a model, appearing in campaigns for Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein. Carey Lowell and Richard Gere may not have an easy divorce ahead of them. The couple has a son together, Homer, and an extensive amount of property to divvy up. They have a 12,000-square-foot home in North Haven that they put up for sale in July for $65 million. Gere also owns the Bedford Post Inn, which he had restored. Sources say it’s unclear when Carey Lowell and Richard Gere will actually file for divorce.

It’s a wrap. Richard Gere And His Wife Call It Quits Some Hollyweird marriages just aren’t meant to be. According to Radar Online Richard Gere and his wife, model Carey Lowell, have separated, with a trip to divorce court in the offing as well, RadarOnline.com has learned. The 64-year-old Pretty Woman star and his wife since 2002 have already separated, and have “been spending time apart for quite some time,” a source told the NY Post. The two were last seen publicly last year at a showing of his movie Arbitrage in their native Hamptons stomping grounds, and a separate insider tells the paper that their divergent lifestyles — he craves privacy, while she embraces the social spotlight — likely precipitated the parting of ways. An insider said “they have a place in Bedford, and he likes it because it’s quiet and he likes the solitude,” while “she likes being in North Haven in the limelight. “They live next door to Jimmy Buffett and his family, and they’re good friends.” Gere was formerly married to 90s supermodel Cindy Crawford, while Lowell’s ex-husbands are shutterbug John Stember and After Hours star Griffin Dunne. Richard Gere has enough money to make him the perfect wife….it’s sad they couldn’t make matrimony-dom work. Getty

Richard Gere is getting a divorce from his wife of 11 years, and reports say Gere’s Buddhism may have come between he and Carey Lowell. The 64-year-old actor has not been seen with his 52-year-old wife since a screening of his 2012 film Arbitrage, outside of a January appearance at the Golden Globe Awards. Gere and Lowell have reportedly been “spending time apart for quite some time,” a source said. Another source said that the social life of Carey Lowell, a model and actress, didn’t mesh well with Richard Gere’s quiet Buddhist lifestyle. “They have a place in Bedford [New York], and he likes it because it’s quiet and he likes the solitude,” said the insider. “She likes being in North Haven in the limelight. They live next door to Jimmy Buffett and his family, and they’re good friends.” Gere was raised attending Methodist churches but took an interest in Buddhism in his 20s. He studied Zen Buddhism for several years, but after traveling to Nepal in 1978 Gere met many Tibetan monks and lamas, and afterward took up Tibetan Buddhism. Today Richard Gere is an activist for human rights in Tibet, co-founding the Tibet House and serving as chairman of the board of directors for the International Campaign for Tibet. As an Academy Awards presenter in 1993, Gere denounced the Chinese government and its treatment of Tibet, and in 2007 called for a boycott of the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. Lowell is best known for her role as Bond girl Pam Bouvier in the James Bond movie Licence to Kill and a role as Assistant District Attorney Jamie Ross on the television drama Law & Order. Richard Gere has been married once before, a union with Cindy Crawford that ended in 1995. He and Carey Lowell have one child together, a son named Homer.
