Even the greatest rock band ever, who were known as the Fab Four had a little recording room help from their friends once in a while.

According to Americansongwriter.com The Beatles succeeded for countless reasons, but their chemistry as four instrumentalists had a lot to do with it. For the vast majority of their songs, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, with some production expertise from George Martin, made the magic in the studio without any outside help.

I no longer work at News 4 New York, but I enjoyed serving stories for anchorwoman Sue Simmons when I was a field producer there.

Simmons was one of the jovial members of the team, constantly poking fun at herself and everyone else on the set. She liked to laugh. So it's no surprise that many viewers may remember a Groundhog Day impersonation (which can be viewed here).

The Cuba Day celebration at the White House was a significant event last week and a successful political affair to remember.

This was especially true with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, a Cuban American, speaking alongside discussions on Cuba policy and migration management. Mayorkas's participation is notable, particularly in the context of the recent dismissal of articles of impeachment against him.
