Good morning Sugahs.  The news of Kobe Bryant's death has shocked the world.  We now know there were 9 people on board the downed helicopter.  Let this be a reminder to say "I love you" every day as tomorrow's not promised.

Music's biggest night, the Grammys, started with a musical tribute to Kobe Bryant. Alicia Keys walked onto the stage at the Staples Center and said, quote, "We're all feeling crazy sadness right now, "Because earlier today, Los Angeles, America, and the whole wide world lost a hero.  And we're literally standing here heartbroken in the house that Kobe Bryant built."

Today is National Chocolate Cake Day and Bubble Wrap Day.
