Fifty is not "just another birthday." It is a reluctant milepost on the way to wherever it is we are meant to wind up. It can be approached in only two ways. First, it can be a ball of snakes that conjures up immediate thoughts of mortality and accountability. ("What have I done with my life?") Or, it can be a great excuse to reward yourself for just getting there. ("He who dies with the most toys wins.") I instinctively choose door number two.
Jimmy Buffett (born James William Buffett on December 25 1946 in Pascagoula, Mississippi) is a singer, songwriter, and recently a film producer best known for his "island escapism" lifestyle and music including hits such as "Margaritaville" (No. 234 on the list of "Songs of the Century"), and "Come Monday." He has a devoted base of fans known as "Parrotheads". His band is known as the Coral Reefer Band. Aside from his career in music, Buffett is also a best selling writer and is involved in two restaurant chains named after some of his best known songs, "Cheeseburger in Paradise" and "Margaritaville". He owns the Margaritaville restaurant chain and co-developed the Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant concept with OSI (parent of Outback Steakhouse) who operate the chain under a licensing agreement with Mr. Buffett. He and his wife, Jane, have two daughters and a son.
