Can anyone tell me how the Beatles and their people travelled in 1968/69? I don’t think the guys left England much during this time, so I guess I’m asking about their people. I’ve not heard they had an airplane. Did they charter airplanes? Did they fly commercial? Anyone? I ask this question because I think I flew on either a private or more likely a Beatles chartered aircraft in September 1968.

The day before yesterday I learnt that Saint Valentine is also the patron saint of beekeepers. As the Beatles Bible House Apiarist, I was very pleased.

Just now I learnt the chords to Maybe I'm Amazed -- another one of those songs that I periodically forget about, remember, get obsessed with/recall just how good it is, and forget it. Maybe if I can play it, I'll remember it more frequently a-hard-days-night-george-10

The hottest outdoor temperature ever recorded in the United States was 134 degrees Fahrenheit (56.667 Celsius). This temperature was recorded in Death Valley on July 10, 1913.

Bob Marley's "I Shot The Sheriff" is about birth control. Bob Marley didn't want his girlfriend to take birth control pills. The doctor who prescribed the pills was the sheriff.

That Miles Davis and Jimi Hendrix were not only planning to record an album, but that they were going to invite our Paul along to play bass..

Beatlebug, PurplishRain

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, girls. 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.
