a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 What exactly were they planning on doing with it? Build a house and that kind of thing...?

It looks beautiful anyway. Most people just see an island but I see beauty in nature, and that's a perfect example.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I am about 98% sure but I think John was very concerned about preventing erosion on the island and wanted to put up rock walls etc. to prevent erosion. During the 70s he lent it out to a hippie gathering a-hard-days-night-george-10 Now it's just being used for grazing animals

That has'nt been released but €300,000 is a steep asking price especially as the land s in the west i.e very rocky, not great nutrient contents only really good for animal grazing and then you have to transport the animals to and from the island- so it's a bit of a hassle. Especially the way Ireland's economy is in, you could buy 2 decent houses in the West/North of Ireland for that kind of money. It would only be handy for John's intentions of living as a recluse really

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Very sad that he never got to fulfill that retirement plan.

I just found some new information on this while browsing through the Irish Independent archives

In 1967, John Lennon purchased Dorinish Island, an inhabited lump in Clew Bay, Co Mayo. He paid £1,700 and would retreat there with his wife Cynthia when the pressure of life as a Beatle grew too much. He stopped visiting after their divorce and Dorinish felt into disuse.

In 1970, Lennon invited 'King of the Hippies' Sid Rawle to set up a commune and Rawle and 25 followers duly moved in. In 1972, part of their camp burned down and they quit Dorinish. Following Lennon's death in 1980, Yoko Ono sold the island for £30,000, donating the proceeds to an orphanage.

I knew about the latter but I never knew he bought an island for him and Cyn. Does anyone know if she talks about it in her book, I don't know why I didn't know that.

I am from Canada, eh? (BTW I never say "eh" unless it's on purpose.)

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

Does anyone in Canada actually say "eh," or is it just a myth?

I've never met one Canadian that said "Eh" more than once in a conversation.

I've heard that Canadians say "you know?" a lot. Is that true?

Never met anyone that says it constantly. I've only seen that on TV.

I've never heard that was a Canadian thing, I always thought that was more of an English thing. Maybe it's just universal, though, because I know a few Americans who overuse that.

Complete myth.  Hate when TV shows use it.  If anything it's just stereo-typing a "Newfie" accent.  It would be the equivialnt of somebody assuming all Americans have a typical "Southern" accent.

I have not heard that one, myself.  

Paul says "you know" probably about 56 times during this 1967 clip.  Seriously.  I have never counted, but it sure is a lot.  I also think this was during the year he did cocaine.  ahdn_paul_01 tsk tsk.  Bad Pauly.

Many footballers say "you know" in interviews far too many times - you want to slam youre head against a wall listening to them. "You know, we were, erm you know, unlucky to lose, you know, as, you know, we erm deserved more and, you know, didn't get erm, you know, the decisions from the ref. But it's one of those things in football, you know. Those things happen and erm, you know, we have to pick erm ourselves up and, you know, keep going and erm, you know, erm, the results will, erm, come."

Yeah I still notice it now, too.  In this one I think he says it the most.
