Did Heather Mills send you a birthday card? She can damn well afford to!!

She went cheap and sent him an e-card instead.

So, Paul, why do you think about going out into a large body of water to discover things and be set free?

This sounds like a good question to begin a therapy session on the sofa (see earlier posts in this thread...if you dare).

This might be a long question, Paul, so please sit back and get comfortable.  Correct me if I get some things wrong, but my sense is that from the moment you and the other Beatles catapulted into fame in 1962 until basically now, you've not really had much time to just be a "normal person" and laze about and do nothing on a given day or days.  Sure, being well to do (from the time of Beatles fame until now), you've had plenty of opportunities to vacation, but I suspect that even your vacations are chock-full of family, people, even business necessities, and other things to do.  My point is, you've not really had time to just kick back and do nothing -- except for one period of your life:  the year or so after the Beatles dissolved, and you moved out with Linda to that farm in rural England.  Are you still with me Paul....?  Paul's assistant -- please wake Paul up!  Ha ha, just joshing you there...:) 

Anyway, I guess my question is two-fold:  Do you agree that having "time off" to do nothing, with no obligations, is conducive to the creative process of writing songs; and secondly, do you currently try to carve out such periods of time for yourself?  I have heard that your friend, James Taylor, consciously sets aside large blocks of time on his own rural property to go out to a shack all by himself and spend hours noodling around with his guitar in order to strike up inspiration. 

Thanks for your time, Paul; and yes, I would like a sack of homemade butterscotch toffee to take with me for the long drive back, thank you...
