Today pop-rock legend Barry Gibb was Knighted by Prince Charles today at Buckingham Palace in London making him Sir. Barry Gibb. His contributions to music and charity are well noted. With his brothers Maurice and Robin they formed one of the great trios in music history the Bee Gees. Congratulations Sir. Barry!

One of my favorite tunes by The Bee Gees. Night Fever.

March For Our Lives, Time To Take A Stand

On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington DC to demand that their lives and safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today. For More visit March For Our Lives – March 24, 2018

I fully support this effort to demand that the lives and safety of kids and families are a priority. Gun violence has become a problem around the country and around the world. It’s time that this issue is taken seriously. The students who are leading this are a inspiration and give me hope for the present and the future.

Support Public Broadcasting @wtci @pbs #pbs

I support PBS/Public Media in America because like many in this country were raised on it. We need this service available to ALL Americans. The 2019 budget does not include funding for public media. It’s a vital and necessary resource to provide quality instructive Television to everyone.

World AIDS Day is celebrated around the world on December 1st each year. It has become one of the most recognized international health days and a key opportunity to raise awareness, commemorate those who have passed on, and celebrate victories, such as increased access to treatment and prevention services.

UNAIDS took the lead on campaigning for World AIDS Day from its creation until 2004. From 2004 onwards the World AIDS Campaign’s Global Steering Committee began selecting a theme for World AIDS Day in consultation with civil society, organisations and government agencies involved in the AIDS response.

Wow! Amazon Is Buying Whole Foods

It looks like Amazon went shopping and picked up Whole Foods in a surprise acquisition. Amazon has been doing some brick and mortar stuff lately but this is kind of a surprise. Now your whole paycheck can go to Amazon for media to milk.
