Silly Girl said

I'm grateful to share a world with Paul and Ringo, and to live on a planet on which George and John once walked. And to have had them all together, even though it was only for a few years, long before I was born. 

I'm grateful there is music in the world that has the power to bring so many people together, of all ages and distinctions, Across The Universe , as the Beatles' music has. 

You wrote this on my birthday, and I could not agree more. I, too, am grateful to have been alive at the same time as John, George, Paul, and Ringo (albeit briefly in John's case, since I was born in 1978). I am very grateful for music in general, and the Beatles in particular. Paul specifically has played a key role in my life, although he'll never know it. Without his (solo) music, and one song in particular, I very possibly would not have been alive now. So yes, I am infinitely grateful for those four lads and all they achieved. heart

I'm also grateful to a great many other things, including - but not limited to - being ginger, having the nicest cats in the world, chocolate, my imagination, my insanity (seriously, who wants to be normal?), Forumpool and its inhabitants, and the list goes on. 

heart = warmed 

JPM-Fangirl, I do think you're lovely. ahdn_george_06 And I agree, 'normal' is imaginary and 'fitting in' is overrated.

This is often done but this time I really enjoyed the write-ups and listening again to the songs for verification.......as to why I bloody love them.

 

For some reason I found the video accompanying 'I Need You ' moving.

The Beatles are good. I like the Beatles. I like the Beatles because they are good. Their songs are good. Their people are good. It is good to listen to them. I will rate them 7.6/9 (good)

Sorry, everyone was being serious and I couldn't help it.

Well, not the queen bit.

Anyway, to stay-on-topic the Beatles Bible is good. I like it. I like it because it's good. I will rate it 7.7/9 (good)

Yes you're right, we should all appreciate (see what I did there) each other's silliness and not fight over who's sillier.

I additionally appreciate digestive biscuits.

Aye, indeed. You know, I almost did that, but decided not to 🙂 

It's like I said when AppleScruffJunior thought I was trying to be a bigger Harrifan than she: we must unite in George-loving, not continually squabble about who loves him most. After all, 

You don't fight hatred with hatred. You oppose negativity with love, not more hatred. 

- George 

I appreciate George's whispered words of wisdom.

How are you the queen if your Silly Mum is still active. Did you marry a Silly Prince? Or did Silly Mum abdicate the throne. Is Little Girl fine with being just a princess?

That is because it is to be felt on a tactile level like a blanket made out of razor blades of appreciation!

Much better! I appreciate this thread even more now.

And I appreciate @natureaker's kindness as she didn't even make me pay for those (photos of) biscuits.
