Pop superstar Demi Lovato was reportedly rushed to a Los Angeles area hospital after an apparent drug overdose today. She is a enormously talented performer and vocalist who has several hit tunes on the charts. Her music is loved by fans all over the world and she is supportive of so many causes that lift people up who are on the fringes. For six years she was sober but recently it was reported she was drinking again. Young artists unfortunately have it tough in the world they live in. May she find support, healing and comfort in the coming days. I hope she find help so she will be better than ever.
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.

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