Trcanberra and wetsroosa, remember that a Beatles US Album Box is for playing and not just for sticking on a shelf and looking at. Too many Beatles boxes are bought as gifts at christmas and get left collecting dust as people play other material. 

Cheers mmm.  No worries on that front, I am not really into collecting for its own sake; these are being bought for the stuff I don't have (soundtrack music and mono mixes primarily) and will get at least the 2 listens that I give all my CDs.  The new running orders and listening to them without that awful 'vocal on one side drums on the other' mix will keep it all fresh for me.

Is that a normal thing?

Do you have folders on your computer filled with posts from here?

Are there scrapbooks with posts printed out and nicely ordered?

Is this the new way of backing up the forum, we all are to save posts in case there is another rollback? Was there a PM sent round from on-high?

Haha, in my case, I saw the discussion warning us that posts would disappear, so I opened the Appreciate and George threads I'd started and selected, copied and pasted in MS Word. I should have done that with the news thread too.

You see – that is really evil!!  Those of us who took the opportunity to get up to some major mischief in the mistaken belief that no one would have any evidence of what we did are now just waiting for the lawsuits to come :)

I hope you all learn that causing mischief is very wrong and can come back to bite your behind.

Sorry to hear about your puppy ASJ, always horrible and heartbreaking having a family pet pass away. I just hope Gavin didn't suffer any pain. heart

^^^ My puppy Gavin died on Christmas Day from heartburn, I can't believe Gav is gone

I'll let myself out

How long ago did this happen, ASJ? {hugs}

My dad died on Christmas day 1993. He had been in a condition like Terry Schiavo's for 15 years. His cerebral hemorrhage happened when I was 10. I've described before (I think in this thread) how dedicated my mom was to taking care of him. His death was actually a blessing and relief to our family.

ASJ, I'm sorry about your puppy. The holidays are a tough time to lose a pet (I lost my first cat two Decembers ago), and I can only imagine how devastating it must have been to have it happen on Christmas.

Ahhh Girl, my deepest condolences.

Sorry to hear that AG; i remember you posting about your dad, mum and everything as she sounded quite incredible considering what she withstood and did, but never knew what day it was on (not that the day it happens on matters much in the slightest).

I feel that way too. But when I've been on the receiving end, any kind word has been a comfort.

Totally. And it doesn't even have to spoken word(s); just a look, smile, even just a person's presence or knowing you are in their thoughts can make so much difference and offer so much comfort in difficult and sad times.

It brings to mind that picture taken by Astrid where John is in the attic broken up over the death of Stu and George is standing behind him like a protector and consoler.

Also reminds me of what John said about his Beatle-mates, that all they had to do was look at each other and they all knew where they were going, that special connection that broke past words and that no one else could penetrate.

It's all ok, mmm. Thanks to you and parlance for the sweet thoughts in my direction.

Sometimes just a simple ''Hey, I'm here for you'' or ''Hey, we're thinking of you'' can do a lot.

But it's always hard and every person is different in that aspect.

 

Yesterday was my unlucky day. I was at work and had counted the money in my cash register in my boss' office. So I wanted to put the empty cash drawer away (the money goes in a safe) and had to walk down a stairs. I slipped and hit the cash drawer in my face. I fell on my butt, hurt my elbows and legs and my face too of course. I had keys in my backpockets so they cut in my butt and it hurt like hell. I've got a huge bruise and sitting is a bit problematic. Sleeping was hard as well. Everytime I wanted to roll over I woke up and had to lift myself to roll to the other side. Oh and when I walk I look like an idiot. I think I should've gone home when my boss asked me to, instead of working for another few hours. Stubborn me.

Yikes! All inanimate objects conspired against you yesterday! Here's to a speedy recovery.

I hope you heal soon Linde. Sounds damn painful. Have you taken time off work to recover? 

 

To avoid a double-post.

The BBC report on a wedding proposal in the Braehead shopping centre just outside Glasgow where a guy hired flashmob dancers to lay on the surprise proposal for his girlfriend. It is such an adorable thing to do and thankfully she said yes.heart

Your word is very appropriate AG all things considered. Was meant to be.

Did anyone click on the link for the origin of the word, the first one given is "1964 Chron.-Telegram (Elyria, Ohio) 19 Aug. 39/2   A boy with a Beatlesque mop was pinned against the wall by two 14-year-olds.".

I got "chill pill" as my words.

I thought my word was quite apropos a-hard-days-night-paul-7.

The word for my dad is "eek" which has a similar meaning to mine. Mine and my dad's birth years also make both of us *monkeys* in the Chinese zodiac. I wonder how close he and I would have been if he had been ok during my teen and young adult years?

It's all right everyone, my joke seemingly crashed and burned and no puppies that have passed through my threshold have died. I guess that it is quite an obscure joke and (according to wiki only UK/Irish/Australian would get it so)

 

So one of the #1 medicines to treat heartburn in Ireland is called Gaviscon

 
Hence I can't believe Gavin, my puppy died from heartburn, I can't believe "Gav is gone" But it backfired horribly, to make it all up to ye I shall post cute puppy pictures
 
 
 
 
Oh and also a big thanks to Ahhh Girl for telling me about borrowbooks.ie, I have just ordered about 4 out-of-print Beatles book which is great seeing as  I didn't want to pay Pauline Sutcliffe any money for her book so happy days!
 
Furthermore my birthday word is "hacktivism"

The puppies are adorable. Glad you really don't have the memory of a pup leaving you on Christmas.

Sweet! Glad you ordered the books. Keep us posted on how long it takes to get the books to your library. I'd be curious to know if the books travel between libraries via regular mail/post or a special courier services set up by Irish libraries. Let us know which libraries lent the books to you via the service. I love seeing all the property stamps on ILL items.

I left my home state specifically for a job as the head of an interlibrary loan department. I think it is a wonderful service. I've since moved to the cataloging department, but ILL will always be my first love.
