Beatles' Strawberry Fields gates removed

The new gates replaced the worn-out originals
The ornate iron gates of a children's home which inspired John Lennon's psychedelic Beatles anthem Strawberry Fields Forever have been removed.

So do I...

*sort of related... DERAIL ALERT*

If you went to a Beatles site, would you write your name there? I definitely would. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Depends on what. Mendips or Forthlin Road? No. Cavern? Yes. Cabash Club? Yes.

blue-meanie DO NOT WANT.

It's like them replacing the Abbey Road sign. I would do write my name on that. If I can do it without getting caught, I would write my name on the actual pavement of Abbey Road.

Hey did you guys know the doors to Studio 2 are in the Hard Rock Cafe in NY? Is nothing sacred anymore?

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

The article's author showed amazing restraint. It took 6 paragraphs before the words "auctioned off" were used.

Start saving your pennies boys and girls.

If you listened to the audio clip that accompanied the article, the gentlemen were saying proceeds from a possible auction could fund the plans for a children's learning center. The host asks "isn't that better than a pair of old gates?". To which the other guy replies "Wellllllllllllllllllll...."

Which brings up an interesting question. As a Fab fan, if you knew you could help save the original gates by simply making a donation (along with millions of other fans), would you? I know I would. It could be like one of those charity events where someone you know gets "arrested" by a charity and the "inmate" has to call all of their friends and family to "make bail". It's a fun way to raise funds.

In this case, they could have held the gates hostage and all the Beatles fans would have to raise the money for the ransom. I'd bet my house they could raise more money that way rather than auctioning them off to one individual. But, since that makes much too much sense, it won't happen.


To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

If it goes to charity, I would be happy with that.

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!
