Sign from 1969 'Bed-In' could fetch big bucks

Money was a prime villain — along with war, bigotry and some of the other ills of modern society — when Beatles mega-star John Lennon and his newlywed wife Yoko Ono spent a famous week in bed at a Montreal hotel in 1969 to promote peace, love and pyjama power.But various artifacts created during Lennon and Ono's historic stay in Canada continue to fetch stunning prices at auctions around the world, and the latest relic from the couple's Montreal "Bed-In For Peace" — a simple placard with the words "BED" and "PEACE" scribbled by Lennon in black marker — is expected to fetch up to $160,000 at a Christie's sale of pop culture memorabilia next month in Britain.

Life is what happens when your busy making other plans.  John Lennon
