Thanks so much, A Fiendish Thingy. No, I'm not a vegetarian, but my husband and I never have been big meat-eaters. So when our older son asked five years ago if he could go veggie, it was hardly any trouble to accommodate him. Really, putting up with comments from well-meaning (or not-so-well-meaning) adults is more bother than accommodating the veggies. Our older daughter stopped eating meat a couple of years after her brother did. They were both pretty chuffed when they found out most of the Beatles were vegetarians too. The younger daughter dabbled in vegetarianism for a little while, until one night we were making cheeseburgers with bacon and blue cheese (which is funny in itself, as it was the third time in our married lives we'd even purchased bacon) and the smell was just too tempting for her to resist.

Most days we don't eat meat. When we do, it isn't much trouble to make meat-free portions for the vegetarians. There are a lot of recipes at the McCartneys' Meat Free Monday site if your mother is willing to try them. Another site we really enjoy is called The Veggie Table. (I don't know whether posting a link would be considered spamming, but I think you'll be able to find it.) I think summer is an excellent time to try going veggie because there's such a great variety of fruits and vegetables in season and readily available, and a nice salad is such a natural choice for dinner when it's too hot to cook. Good luck persuading your mom.

EDITED TO ADD: Don't worry, MrBig. I promise I won't post nearly as often as my daughter.

No, it's alright. What I meant was that a whole family has never joined this site.

OK, I'll keep this brief as I have a new year party to sort out (happy new year to all, by the way, and I hope 2010 is just great!).

I'm Joe, and I made this site. I'm currently 33 (born April 1976). I live in a small village just outside Cardiff in Wales, though I'm English (I grew up in the lovely city of Bath). Work-wise I'm a website producer for a broadcasting company that will remain nameless here for now. I only really started The Beatles Bible because I hated my then boss and was deeply bored and looking for a new challenge.

My Beatles epiphany came, I think, in 1990, when my older brother played me A Day In The Life. I was at that age when everything your older sibling does carries automatic authority, and true to form, he was bang on the money - "Listen to this, it's brilliant," he said. After that I raided my parents' record collection for everything Beatles-related (I have about half the albums on 1960s vinyl, plus the first two fan club flexi-discs).

Since then I've always loved The Beatles, although there's plenty of other stuff I couldn't live without - David Bowie, Blondie, Pixies, Nirvana, Roxy Music, Patti Smith, Velvets etc. Nobody else in my family really loves them like I do, though my endlessly patient wife bought me The Beatles: Rock Band for Christmas and I think she's really starting to appreciate how great the songs are.

Like MJB I don't really do the memorabilia thing, but have loads of Beatles books. I do have an original Cavern Club membership card with the expiry date of December 1964 (I think) and some Beatles hair pomade. My uncle goes to rock auctions now and then to buy Hendrix stuff and he gave me those.

Anyway, that'll do for now. As I said, I have a party to arrange and it's already 6.30!


I dont understand, whats a pomade, Do you hate the British invasion like most people in England?
