I live in Macedonia.
Something interesting: Have you heard of Alexander The Great?

Which band did he play bass for? I remember something about him conquering the world, you know, like The Beatles did. a-hard-days-night-george-10

The Killers with Swords? :D Hm, that might not be too horrible of a band name.
Yes, something like that. That pretty much sums up all anyone would know about Macedonia.

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

I live in Seattle, Washington. Whenever I walk past the Edgewater Hotel, I always tell whomever I'm with (or think to myself): "That's where the Beatles fished from their window." Here's the story for anyone who cares to read it:

The Edgewater Hotel is built on a pier over Elliott Bay, which is very deep and is home to the world's largest octopus species. I wonder if, while the Beatles were fishing out of their hotel window, Ringo maybe hooked an octopus, inspiring his future song. Probably not. :)

I was in Seattle in 2004. I looked at that hotel and took a picture of it. I did read about how people would fish from the windows. But, I didn't know the Beatles yet. Oh, well, at least I have the memory of seeing the hotel and the photo I can look at. Thanks for putting all that together for me, Bungalow Bob. apple01heartapple01

You are quite welcome, Ahhh Girl. I hope you enjoyed your Seattle visit. Here's a youtube video with some scenes of the Beatles at The Edgewater Hotel: the video also shows the Beatles landing at the Seattle airport, where I happen to work across the street:
