In the three states in which, we have participating chef-authors, California has 71,141 confirmed cases, 2,934 confirmed deaths, and once again, 0 number of confirmed recoveries because Gov. Gavin Newsom won’t share them. Next, Hawaii has 638 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 563 confirmed recoveries. Finally, Washington state has 17,512 confirmed cases, 975 confirmed deaths, and 0 number of confirmed recoveries because it’s all POLITICAL.

Michael Flynn case- Judge Emmet Sullivan- refuses to let the case go even after the U.S. Department of Justice said it’s not going to prosecute this case.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
David Gilmour released his second album, now a confirmed solo artist with the breakup of Pink Floyd complete. “About Face” came out on March 05, 1984, and it featured the artist with much more radio-friendly cuts deserving of being heard by you. Joining the legendary guitarist were some session powerhouse musicians such as Jeff Porcaro (drums/percussion), Pino Palladino (bass), Ian Kewley (keyboards), as well as Steve Winwood, Jon Lord, Roy Harper, Pete Townsend, Ray Cooper, and others. This album sold well and put the guitarist/vocalist on the solo artists map which is why we encourage everyone to rush out and consider adding it to their growing collection. We believe you will love it as much as we do so what are you awaiting? A sign from the heavens? Take it from us and get it ASAP. Thank you.
