Turned on the football tonight, the programme had been cancelled due technical problems and the first song played was Blackbird.

 

Quiz question on the ITV quiz 'The Chase' was "what was John Lennon's middle name?", the answer accepted as being correct was Winston. ahdn_paul_01Technically correct yes but still.

He told us not to get overwhelmed by grief and whatever thoughts we have... to keep them happy, because any thoughts we have of him will travel to him wherever he is. (John Lennon - 27/8/67)

Well, that was his birth middle name, so I'd go with that.

Yeah but John changed it in 1969 by deed poll to Ono.

Actually, he didn't change Winston to Ono, he added Ono, and stopped using Winston.

Joe explains it further in his article about John's name change:

"Technically, Lennon was unable to lose the Winston from his name, as UK law dictates that a person is unable to fully revoke a name given at birth. As a result, his official name became John Winston Ono Lennon, with the ten 'O's he wished to avoid."

Since the weather was so lovely, a few classmates and I decided to have a drink and some lunch in town. This place had two wraps on the menu. One was called Imagine and the other John Lennon. For a moment I thought I was seeing things really.

'On my way to work' this morning I was listening to Paul's NEW disc. I was thinking during one of the songs that a particular piano part reminded me of something along the lines of 'Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da'. Moments later a car passed by with the license plate OBLA DE.

Close enough - I'll count it.ahdn_paul_02

I have at least 4 Beatley moments from the last two days.a-hard-days-night-george-10 I have more;however, I have forgotten them because the past few weeks have been a bit of a blur due to switching jobs. 

To give a bit a background, I work with special needs adults to help them with their everyday lives. So, I help them (my group) cook once a week and do other activities, so they are not just bored sitting in a group home. One of the policies is to try treat them like an adult, even if they act like a child;therefore, not kiddy music or movies. However, you can not play provocative music (stuff like rap) or movies . So, lucky for me I listen to mostly classic rock. So, I've been trying to ear worm The Beatles and other classic rock artist to my clients.

Yesterday, at work while cooking the radio played: Sgt Pepper (reprise) and A Day In The Life.

Also yesterday, I was driving two of my clients to the YMCA, which is two cities away from the center (my work). The radio station was announcing the next few songs. He announced Band on The Run. I was already enjoying dancing (more like tapping my fingers and bobbing my head since I was driving) with one of my clients, so this announcement made me more excited. However, I did not hear it, for it must of come on while we were in the Y. I didn't think much about it and forgot about it until the way back to the center when the station played Live and Let Die. That same client started singing and to the song and told me it was from a movie. I was said, "Yes, its from James Bond." She said, "Oh, thats it." 

Today, I was watching some celebrity thing about Brad Pitt at work with some of my clients. I saw a picture of Paul (90s) on there.a-hard-days-night-john-1

On the way home today I was listening to 60 on 6 where they were playing a Monkees' song. After the song the dj talked about how when he was a kid the neighborhood kids use to debate who was better The Monkees or The Beatles. So, he played From Me To You as a follow up.

Yesterday, my hubby and I went to visit one of his friends.  Hubby put "Revolver" in the CD player.  He loves "Taxman".  When we got to his buddies house, we started talking about "Taxman" and then got into this huge conversation about the Beatles.  It was awesome.  Dave (hubby's buddy) was 13 when the Beatles came to the US and told us all his memories and how he almost wore out his first Beatles record.  It was so Beatley!  paul-mccartney

Also yesterday - my 12 year old's friend came over to our place...wearing a Beatles shirt!  He loves them too!  Yeah!  a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Yes.  Yes, Faceo, I did!  I remarked that I wanted his t-shirt and the poor kid looked horrified! ahdn_paul_01  After the shock wore off, he said "NEVER!" and ran downstairs with my son! lol

Yesterday, I finally got a hold of my dad's lap top while he was out with his band. Sick with the fever, to have the privilege of a computer in bed was a blessing (my dad's weirdly possessive of his lap top). I had previously been listening to the Beatles on the gramophone, but decided I'd do something else for I while as I'd been listening to music whole day long. I loaded a film online, but could barely watch it as the volume was too low. There was one thing to it - I had to connect it to the stereo. And, once I turned the stereo on, the radio started automatically and the song that was on the the moment was some cover of "And I Love Her". Lesson learned: there is no escaping the Beatles (for which I am eternally grateful!)

@ScrambledEggs The Beatles are watching you, too. I get that feeling all the time.

Fabulous lunchbox.  That is one cool present. I presume far too good to actually use as a lunchbox.

My son was like "Can that be my lunchbox to school?" Of course, in the nicest way possible, I told him and tried (key word: tried) to convince him that his Ninja Turtles lunchbox was cooler than mine. Don't think he bought that idea, though thankfully he forgot all about it.

Considering all the stuff, Beatles and otherwise, I'm gathering up, I might need more space at my cubicle... must stop visiting antique stores... a-hard-days-night-paul-4

I was talking to my dad about a play I have to write for school about seventy's singers and I talk am saying I want to include George in it and my dad is all like "There are thousands of Georges." and he is talking about how the Beatles would have been better with Two Johns and two Pauls and I am just laughing at the thought of an army of Georges and ego battles with two Pauls and two Johns.
