[Another dispatch for our intrepid world explorer, Ahhh Girl. Our Terminator is currently roaming Italy, and has found another Hard Rock Cafe to say "Hasta la Vista, Baby!!!" to!]

Here are the Beatles treasures of the Hard Rock Cafe in Florence, Italy.

Three gold records: Let It Be, A Hard Day's Night, and Yellow Submarine.

A John Lennon jacket.

A Cavern Club card signed by all 4 Beatles. Sorry they are blurry. I will stop by there again before we leave Florence and see if I can get better pictures.

And a Yellow Submarine movie poster in Italian.

AND!!!!!!!

As I was walking around admiring all the Beatles stuff, the host came up to me and said that he put in 5 songs for me! He played Ticket To Ride and then the 4 Beatles in post-Beatles roles: John (Mother), Paul (We Can Work It Out), Ringo (Octopus's Garden), and George (This Song).

Several of the workers started buzzing about me and the Beatles. I showed them the BB. One of them has a brother who is going to play at the Cavern Club this year.

[More from our intrepid traveller, @Ahhh Girl.]

We popped into a little Despar grocery store. There was a commercial on a local radio station playing. I don't know what they were advertising, but "Love, Me Do" was part of it. I told the cashier that I love the Beatles. He knew the Beatles and he told me what station was playing. That was as far as his English went (which is further than my Italian goes). This is the website for the station.

I'm listening to the station now to try to catch the ad again. I need @AbbeyRoadRage with me. Hope you Italian exam went well.

My mom has been around me long enough now that she is having Beatley Moments. We brought along a puzzle book. She opened to this page this morning:

We enjoyed Hard Rock Florence so much we went again last night. I asked the waitress if she would play me a Beatles song. I got "Love Me Do". I've heard that twice in Florence. Seems quite apropos...if you've read that other thread that developed wildly and rapidly a few hours ago a-hard-days-night-george-10 a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

Apparently, tonight's episode of Jeopardy has a Paul category.

And if any of us ever got on the show it'd need to return. Maybe with a Beatles category next to it!

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Can buy Joe love!

I got 4/5. I forgot who wrote My Brave Face. I also confused wings with Paul McCartney and Wings. You cannot put them together without thinking that.

I didn't know the song those lyrics belonged to and I very stupidly didn't realize the square in Russia.

I got them all; was surprised that the question on Yesterday was worth more than the one on With A Little Luck. 

And Wings should have been on the band Wings not the silly flapping variety.

That was the idea. Jeopardy does that kind of clever turn all the time.

Look where I found our loveable Beatles today: the train station in Milan, Italy.
