It's safe to say that 2020 has not been the year we were all planning for--especially for our graduating seniors.

Obviously the priority for everyone is to stay safe and healthy. However, graduating high school is an important life transition. Walking across that stage in your cap and gown to receive that diploma and the much-deserved accolades for working so hard is something to which many of us always look forward. That's been quite different this year.

What a thoughtful move on the part of actors Alex Winter (Bill S. Preston, Esq.) and Keanu Reeves (Theodore Ted Logan), to take a moment to celebrate the graduating class of Bill & Ted's alma mater, San Dimas High School, on their special day. The students were surprised and delighted to receive a personal message from the actors who, of course, reminded them to 'be excellent to each other.' Good advice for all of us right now--and always.

If you're familiar with the story-line of the 'Bill and Ted' movies, they were supposed to write and release to the world the music that would make the world a better place. They haven't done that yet. No pressure. And that is where the story picks up in the soon to be released third installment in the franchise, 'Bill and Ted Face the Music,' scheduled for an August 21 release.

These movies have been a delightful, feel-good fan favorite over the years. And this third installment couldn't be any more needed. I can't help but feel that we need that world-changing, peace and prosperity-bringing music they're going to write more than ever.
