I bet there are tons of FUN things to do in Pennsylvania. Judging from the "moves" happening here in Asheville...this could be dramatic!

Hi janeAnne~ I will be near the Tempe event in Arizona on this day! Tempe has some amazing reach out programs to support the homeless population in the desert. There are red parking meters, you can put one, five, or ten dollars in and purchase a ticket that buys homeless people, meals, bus tickets, nights at the shelter and clothing to pass out. It was one of the most effect programs I've seen anywhere to help homelessness!

John Lennon is still one of my favorite artists. I have a station on Pandora dedicated to his music. What vision, that is just as relevant today.

Thanks for the trip back in time!...
