The former Beatles drummer recorded the album, which features five songs, at his home studio due to the coronavirus pandemic, and says he worked on it from April until October.

In this interview, Ringo talks with Harry Smith about the new music he's recorded in quarantine and how much he still misses John Lennon 40 years after his bandmate's death. "I was emotional when it happened 40 years ago. I miss the man," he says.

Surfin' Santa Paws Donates Puppy to Veteran with PTSD

RICOCHET HOSTS HER 12TH ANNUAL SURFIN' SANTA PAWS HOWLIDAY GIVING DRIVE BY DONATING A PTSD SERVICE DOG PUPPY TO A VETERAN WITH PTSD

Ricochet & the puppy will also make FREE Howliday Zoom calls to kids & veterans!

When the surf season ends, Ricochet trades her life jacket for a Santa jacket & transforms herself into Surfin' Santa Paws... turning boards into bucks!!

This is Ricochet's 12th season of Howliday Giving Drives and this year it benefits her Waves of Empowerment Program that helps kids with special needs, adaptive surfers, wounded warriors and veterans with PTSD.

It will also benefit her PTSD service dog initiative, a black lab puppy named Balboa (Bo) that she's helping to train for Marine Veteran, Staff Sgt. Persons "Griff" Griffith IV. Ricochet worked with Griff as a therapy dog for a couple years. He's also in the IMAX film, Superpower Dogs with her, which is now showing on Hulu.

As Covid-19 cases spike across the country, millions of families are experiencing high anxiety as they struggle with decisions about the holidays with stay at home orders, restrictions, and other challenges. All these feelings and uncertainty are causing great physical, psychological, and emotional distress.

But Ricochet isn't letting Covid ruin our holidays. Instead of surfing with kids and veterans like she typically does, she's offering FREE Zoom calls with her pawtégé, Bo. There is nothing like the comfort pups can provide during these difficult times… And who can resist a 12 week old puppy!

Ricochet will be 13 in January. She's healthy, but we know she won't be with us forever. As such, She's hoping you'll help her legacy live on… Literally through Bo! The cost of raising & training a puppy to be a service dog is not cheap. In fact, it can run upwards of $25,000.

But, because of Griff's service to our country and the sacrifices he and his family have made, Ricochet is providing the puppy at no cost to him.

This courageous man served our country, kept us safe, sacrificed family, and so much more. He returned home fighting another debilitating battle… PTSD. Military recruits go through rigorous training to learn how to fight a war, but nobody teaches them how to come home after experiencing horrific battlefield atrocities. The least Ricochet can do is help Griff continue his healing journey with a service dog. She is committed to helping him in his recovery through the tremendous healing that comes with puppy breath!

The funds raised will cover training, placing, providing support, vet bills, wellness checks, food, treats, bones, supplies, grooming, vaccinations, microchip, shots, license, monthly preventatives, wellness checks, travel, team training, and other miscellaneous expenses.

Ricochet thanks you so much for taking part in her 12th annual Surfin' Santa Paws Howliday Giving Drive that benefits her PTSD service dog initiative and all the other programs she continues to provide to kids with special needs, adaptive surfers, wounded warriors and veterans with PTSD.

About Ricochet: Ricochet is a champion surf dog. But, more importantly, she became the first ever canine-assisted surf therapy and adaptive surfing dog in 2009 when she made a decision to jump on the surfboard of a 14 year old adaptive surfer. Since then, she's assisted hundreds and hundreds of kids with special needs, people with disabilities and wounded warriors. She's also a certified goal directed therapy dog that has been providing healing through human-canine intervention to service members and veterans with PTSD for the last eight years. She balances boards… and lives!

13 Thought Provoking Quotes About Diversity

Sure, difference can be challenging. But getting to know other people's perspectives can lead to greater harmony and humanity.

We at OGTV embrace diversity and believe in the benefits we as individuals and a society can gain if we do more to listen to different points of view. We don't have to always agree; we just need to care to try to understand what makes someone else tick.

Sure, difference can be challenging. If you've got a homogenous group of people who all think alike, it's easier to reach a comfortable consensus. Diversity means including people with different perspectives, different experiences, different opinions, and perhaps different working styles or expectations. Inclusion creates a much more harmonious whole and can open eyes to wonderful ideas that one never thought of before.

Here are just 15 of our favorite quotes about diversity and inclusion:

Boy Gives Baby Yoda To Firefighters - "The Force" Spreads (70 Photos!)

Crews Battling Oregon Wildfires Pass "The Force" Karma To Firefighters Across State Lines

5-year old Carver was shopping for food to donate to firefighters with his Grandma when they saw a Baby Yoda, all by itself, on the shelf. They both agreed that Baby Yoda would make a great friend for the men and women battling the raging deadly fires. Carver wrote a note thanking the firefighters and introducing them to their new friend and left Baby Yoda with all the other donations.

Tyler Eubanks, one of the donor volunteers. saw the note and was so moved that she took some photos of the firefighters with Baby Yoda to send to Carver in appreciation of his gift. The Firefighters have taken Baby Yoda with them on every fire fight, snapping photos with their new mascot every chance they get.

Tyler created a Facebook Page, @babyyodafightsfires, so that everyone could see the photos and offer their love and warm wishes to the men and women who are risking their lives in a quiet unassuming way to tame these infernos.

Please visit, no matter where you are, and add to "The Force" of appreciation for these heroes!

Lots more Baby Yoda & Friends photos below!
