I think there are more posts about those trips scattered around on the forum here, there, and everywhere.

I have been to England twice (and both only last year, quite embarrassing as I live about a 40 minute plane ride away). Of those 2 times, I've been to Liverpool once and I never did a write-up for it so I should get around to that.

I'm in London two times this year for a day this month (to say goodbye to Les Mis and its original staging), and then for 4 days in September with my brother.

Here's a very random question:

Does anyone else ever feel like they ate too many greasy french fries after hearing the song Soily

Isn't he a bit like you and me?

No? I mean, that was the first time I'd heard that song...

Hm...not consciously, no. But slide guitars do feel somewhat 'greasy', the sound of lubricated fingers sliding up and down the guitar neck. I don't think it's that odd a query!

(Also, the title rhymes with "oily", so...)

I don’t eat greasy fries anymore, nor have I ever heard that song. So I’m awfully sorry to say I can’t comment.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

This one was for a very long time:a-hard-days-night-john-6

I use this one way too much:a-hard-days-night-george-10

But I'd have to go with apple01because its purposes are so broad it fits in so many situations.

I'm with Holey, apple01 is the one I use the most, by far. Besides the noted multifunctionality, I just find the image itself appealing, obviously. (Green is my favourite colour.) Plus since I like apples, it makes for simple posts on the "What are you eating?" thread!

Other ones I frequently rely on are saluting John, showbiz-grin John, Chief Blue Meanie, and enigmatic Yoko. I've used maybe 2/3 of the available ones at various times, when they're most appropriate. (GM if I'm talking about classical music, Stu for art, etc.) Several of the AHDN ones I find too vague and blurry to be of any personal use; conversely, the Pattie and Billy ones look so good that I regret the lack of opportunities to employ them.

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr
