Watched the first part of The Morecambe and Wise Story on the BBC iplayer and the first thing you see is their sketch with the Beatles. Beatles, Beatles everywhere. Over here, over there.heart

My daughter is learning how to play "Twist & Shout" on guitar at school :)   She got 100% on her "exam" of playing the song.  I'm so proud! paul-mccartney

My hubby, who faithfully supports me being a Paulette, called me from work yesterday & said he wants to get some of George's solo stuff.  He heard some of his songs on the radio & had forgotten how much he loved them!  So, I guess I'm a Paulette and he's a "Fiendish Thingy"!  apple01 a-hard-days-night-george-10

Your daughter chose a "John" song to learn. Any of your children fancy the drums? You could have the complete set within your happy little family.

A student used our text-a-librarian service to ask about resources for the history of the Beatles. I gave a few starting points and my email address in reply and extended an invitation to come visit me at the library. I hope this student comes by.

She didn't "choose" a John song, Ahhh Girl…."Twist & Shout" is part of their curriculum a-hard-days-night-john-1 so it was chosen for her.  I would definitely try and persuade her towards a Paul song!  paul-mccartney (if I could)!   Nope, no drummers in the family…4 kids who all play guitar and my daughter plays piano too.

Was in a kiosk this afternoon to get a comic book for my brother but I took a moment to look at the music related magazines. All of them had a bit about the Beatles. All four of them had something about either the Lewisohn book, the Live At The BBC project or about Paul. I didn't buy any of them. Why are magazines so goddamn expensive?

I don't buy magazines nowadays as, like you Linde, i find them expensive. Especially when it 8 pages for £4.

Maybe til she is old enough. How old is she?

 

This is one of my Beatle moments from last Friday at a Chinese restaurant. 
It reminded me of Happiness Is A Warm Gun, so I got a chuckle out of it. 

 

My other Beatle moment was when I was watching a action movie dealing with like military and government stuff. During one of the scenes they said "Code 9-9-9! Code 9-9-9!"

Quick, get the Beatles in here. Love is all we need to solve this seething cauldron of a problem.

I thought it was the taking part that matters not the winning.

My husband surprised me buying Live At The BBC 2 as an extra birthday gift. We had already order the remaster version of Live At The BBC for my birthday (which came into today from Amazon), but he decided after work to get me the other one as well.

HeyTrud, maybe you can make reading the PM's her birthday present when she turns 18 as some kind of initiation into womanhood. Do you think the two of you would grow closer if you did let her do that? That would be a Beatley moment between the two of you.

Thank you Trud :)

It depends if her daughter becomes a Paulette, Ahhh Girl, otherwise she might be creeped out.

True. HeyTrud is doing her best to raise a Paulette, but sometimes those things don't work out as planned.
