AND HERE’S SOMETHING TO SMILE ABOUT

Have you heard about Captain Tom’s fundraising exploits in the UK? He’s 99 (100 on 30th April) and was nursed back to health from COVID19. So he set a goal to raise $1500 for the National Health Service, by walking up and down his garden 100 times. He ended up raising $50,000,000 and counting! He then recorded this song and it debuted #1 on the UK charts this week
