 Bo Diddley, 1928-2008 Inducted into the Florida Artist Hall of Fame.  Songwriter-Guitarist, and vocal musician who helped revolutionize pop and rock & roll in the 50's and beyond.

Join Artist Don Browning as we remember Bo Diddley's life, times, the Celebration in Tallahassee during Florida's Heritage Awards Ceremony.

At home in Archer, Alachua County, Bo Diddley cared about the youth of his community.  Bo Diddley considered the whole world his community.

In the 1950's, when I was a young man, Bo Diddley was the man, he rocked us to our souls.  Today the State of Florida, honored Bo Diddley and his family with a Formal Introduction into the Florida Hall of Fame.

Meet his family and friends, and take a moment to look back in history.  I had the pleasure to meet many proud members of his family, His Sons, youngest daughter, grand daughters and more.

Back in those days, it was said that if we listened to rock and roll, it would stunt our growth, we wouldn't be able to excel in school or life in general, and all around it just could't possibly be good for us.

We knew that rock and roll, especially from Bo Diddley lifted our spirit and made our whole being move from our feet to as high as we could reach. 

 You Go Bo Diddley!

A new decade, Water Czar Don Browning asks everyone to take a deep breath and end old bad practices.  Clean Water is important.  Let's stop dumping our Sewer Effluent into the Aquifer.  There is plenty of clean water from springs that can be redirected back into the Aquifer as recharge.  

Sit Back and Relax, The Sunset Harbor Heron Rookery is alive and well because we all cared.   A special thanks to President Joe Pickens of The St. Johns River Community College and the Florida School of the Arts, for his support of the Arts and Florida Environmental Wildlife causes in the early days.
