    This is fab. I think Jamie Foxx is the most amazing person. His spirit is so large.

        I’ll definetly tune in, I’m still riding lasts weeks energy. We landed on PBS this last Sunday and were thoroughly impressed with their programming celebrating Black History Month. Very enlightening. Yet another argument in favor of dumping our cable subscription.

        Just a reminder that Senators need to hear from constituents, giving voice to support for Public Broadcasting funding….something the Republicans are attempting to strip away.

    So will my President host a reggae night at the WH? And I’m not referring to the dancehall ragga of the late ’90’s and 2000’s – I mean the reggae of Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley, Peter tosh, Bunny Wailer, etc, etc…I hope so!!!

        ooooh…that is so true Dorothy!!

        And thank you Chipsticks for the video !!! 🙂

        I attended a free Jimmy Cliff concert in Central Park last summer. Of course, he sang “Many Rivers” and the entire concert was GREAT! He also sang “Vietnam” this time substituting “Afghanistan.”

          This confirms it! This is my favorite place to visit! 🙂 When you play the Jimmy card, I can’t help but smile! He is just great! To quote the great Jimmy, “The harder they come, the harder the fall…” Enough said!

    Watched the whole show on PBS and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great music and our Beloved President and his wife were enjoying it very much. Saw little Sasha and Mrs. Robinson but where was Malia?
