I did do this. (Write beatlesbible.com using my nail polish on the gates of Abbey Road studio)

$#@&^% I wish I had seen the words "hate him" when I was painting on the gate. I would have painted over them. Oh, well, hopefully no one will try to associate the two messages.

RN and I went to see 7 Cavendish first so that we could walk to the studio on the same route Paul would have walked when he went there. Thanks for thinking of that, @Ron Nasty.

But I didn't do this. (Carve BB into a stone at Stonehenge)

If I ever get to go back to Abbey Road , I found the best place to write BEATLES BIBLE so it can be seen on the Abbey Road crossing webcam.

I had forgotten that the Abbey Road webcam has sound too. It is rather empty there tonight. Darn coronavirus.

For reals, that must have been so amazing. It is exciting just to think about doing it. Someday soon (I hope)a-hard-days-night-paul-7

They are repainting the Abbey Road zebra crossing, because for once nobody is actually walking on it:

Great that it's been given a face life. 

It's bizarre at times that a zebra crossing is a place of national importance, even more so that the photoshoot took 10 minutes. I'm not arguing against, definitely should be.

Face life is an expression up here, it means bringing a renewed sense of life to your face but without all that surgery etc. I think it's because facelift has some negative connotations.
