I was in Trieste, Italy this afternoon having lunch and I heard George's song Blow Away playing on the radio, it had been raining right before it played and the second it started the clouds dispersed. 

Only for it to start pi*sing rain after 30 minutes and I in a bloody playsuit with no jacket!

Thanks a lot George!

 

While hitchhiking with some friends, 'My Sweet Lord' was playing in one of the cars that picked us up.

Also heard 'Ebony and Ivory' a couple of days ago :)

While at a gas station this morning, I received the first compliment from a stranger regarding my new license plate.

The woman said, "hey cool plate - that's my favorite album". After complimenting her on her good taste, we both drove away smiling. ahdn_ringo_09

Awww man, that's the coolest thing ever.

So, today, I'm riding the six-and-a-half-hour drive down from my home in Northern Illinois to my college in Central Missouri. Every time I make the voyage, I see a business sign in Pittsfield, Illinois that I attempt to get a picture of. Today, I was finally successful. And here it is:

Was about to go to bed but then my mother rang me to tell me there was a Beatles documentary on tv. It was more of a John Lennon documentary though.

Been having a Beatley weekend. Last night, I went to see the Omega String Quartet (plus clarinetist) play a free Beatles concert at a local park. And I finally met a fan from Paul's board that I've been emailing with.

And this morning, we both went to a live broadcast of Breakfast with the Beatles with Chris Carter at the Hollywood Bowl Museum patio. They had breakfast and Beatley cupcakes, gave away tickets to next week's tribute concert at the Bowl and Bob Eubanks was the special guest, sharing his memories. 

I posted pics at my Instagram.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at YouTube and Vimeo.

I walked back into my office after my shift at the reference desk. This gift was waiting for me.

It is the book on cds. A coworker gave it to me. She was appreciative that I had introduced her so warmly to the members of the library association during the state-wide meeting this past Friday. :-) She was very into The Beatles back in the 60s.

I watched The Muppet Movie yesterday (because I can) and caught some Beatley references. First, it was produced by Lew Grade who was portrayed as Lord Lew by Orson Welles in the movie.

Second, the bass player in the Muppet band called Electric Mayhem is named Sgt. Floyd Pepper and plays the bass left-handed.

There was also a running gag that appeared a few times in the film with the following exchange.
"Can you help me? I'm lost"
"Have you tried Hare Krishna?"

Yesterday while helping clean to the house, I put on the Magical Mystery Tour album to get me going.

Today during my last class at school, a technology help guy took the class around to different places with technology, and he called it a "Magical Mystery Tour." The reference was obvious to me, but it was a nice coincidence I'd just listened to it a day ago.

Someone showed me a random youtube video (below - contains very bad language so if under age or easily offended best not to watch) and the first noticeable thing was that guy in the vid was wearing an AHDN t-shirt.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Yikes - the juxtaposition of his ranting against the sweet sounding song he is trying to play is incredible.

I get reports on which books in our Patron Driven Acquisition ebook programs get used. My latest report popped up with the book Pig.

I automatically thought of @Annadog40 and Piggies.

It's funny how certain songs or words make one think of BBF'ers.

Bought a Beatles T-shirt recently on our "bazaar", let's call it that... it's the With The Beatles album cover, front and rear side.

So, my friends and I go for some drinks in this place by the seaside where there's a lot of people, but mostly metal kids that like to wear black and, well, listen to metal music. You see a lot of cheap metal T-shirts with metal album covers like Iron Maiden on them, just like mine. Actually kinda liked wearing a Beatles shirt, to spite them or something :P

Nothing exciting happens for the night, except some very smelly hobo comes up to me, points at my shirt and starts: "We all live in a Yellow Submarine..." and I'm like, "heh, yeah, that's it" and smile nervously. Then he asked for some spare change, ofcourse every one of us was suddenly peniless. Then he informed me that "punk started when Elvis died" and moved on to ask other people for spare change, I guess.

So... yeah, that's all. Exciting, isn't it.

I saw a girl busking when I was at a Honeyfest in Austria, nobody had given her any money even though she was quite good- then she started singing Let It Be, so of course I gave her money a-hard-days-night-george-10

The end of some radio drama was on in the kitchen and you could hear the end of 'In My Life' beneath the credits as they were read out.
