Okay here comes a rough translation of the toilet thing:

''The toilet is spotless., there's nothing wrong with the hygiene. But still, the Beatlemania in the Van Nunen house, clearly demonstrated with the collection in the restroom, has created a victim. ''My daughter also has the fever'', Han van Nunen admits. ''She is 29, and the Beatles are from far before her time. However, she does know all of the lyrics by heart. When we're at a party and a Beatles song is being played, we both look at each other and say: ''Which song, which year, which LP?'' We'll do a little quiz together. Yeah, that's a pretty natural thing for us.'' 

It's also the most natural thing in the world for Han to take at least 1 Beatles souvenir home when vacationing abroad. ''There's more to offer in one country than in the other, but everywhere there's something. We just returned from Italy and France. In Italy I bought an adorable music box with the song Yesterday on it. In France they already had the Beatles calendar for 2014. So that one also went back to den Bosh with us.''

His fondest memory for that matter belongs to Italy. To be more specific, it was to Rome. To be even more specific: The Vatican. ''I couldn't believe it. We just got out of the Vatican and around the corner there's a newsstand where I saw something amazing! A poster in Italian of the Beatles film, ''A Hard Day's Night'' from 1964. Of course, I had to buy it.''

This is pretty much the most interesting bit of the article. For the rest it was about how he often goes to those Beatles things and how there are people who are even crazier than him, and how he would never pay 10,000 euro's for a golden LP. And how he has never been to Liverpool. 

It's quite a long article, for something which is pretty much about someone's restroom xD

Slowly getting my way through my MP's Flying Circus DVDs and Ringo is at the end of one of them :)

Date for Joe's history section (if he wants): Ringo's part recorded 28th January 1972

Thanks for posting that, Linde.

In Italy I bought an adorable music box with the song Yesterday on it.

Don't worry folks if you would like a Beatle toilet seat cover of your own you're in luck and only $59.99 (I hope the figure next to shipping ($63.30) is the total cost and not just the postage on its own).

I was driving one my friends from getting his tire fixed. We were listening to the radio and talking when I noticed Lady Madonna was playing and it was a different version. Then Paul started answering questions from people and it was from concert he did last week at that high school. So, I was trying to listen to my friend speak, but I was distracted by Paul talking. I tried to find the concert on iheart radio; however, I couldn't, so I came back out to my car to listen. Sorry, my Beatley senses are tingly! a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Edit: I found it on iheartradio after all, so I don't have to sit in my car anymore. lol 

Later on the same radio station was having one their segments called "Flashback". Today's episode was on musical television from like 50's-early 70's and they mentioned The Beatles twice.

There is a report on Newsnight about why kids of today are listening to older music and a look at the changing society of the 60's, the reason for such a feature is Paul's new album out today, 50 years on the release of Please Please Me, and the upcoming release of Mark Lewisons Tune In, and the clips for older music are The Beatles. She Loves You keeps coming on.

There is an untold delight in letting a programme on tv run on and finding it has Beatles related content. heartheart

Do you think that segment might be posted to the show's website or onto Youtube?
