Noodleworks, I once had a dream in which my old school was transformed into Hogwarts and a teenage Paul McCartney was one of the pupils!

I know this never gonna happen, but I wish Paul would start playing Searchin' live because I truly love that song.

We're at a family reunion. Tonight we had a semi-impromptu talent show and my daughter and I sang "I Don't Want to Spoil the Party." She played guitar.

today i went to abbey rd to show some relatives the sights. Loads of people there doing the road crossing annoying a number of drivers in the process. something i always wonder though is if you have gone to the trouble of getting yourself to abbey rd in order to get a photo of yourself on the crossing, surely you want one of yourself crossing it in beatles style, going in the correct direction? sooooo many people are content to settle with crossing it to the other side. curious.

This morning at 6:50 after I baked brownies at 4 am, I was on Photoshop seeing what I would look like with Jane Asher's hair, when I looked outside and noticed the sun was coming up. In my PJ's, no bra (teehee) and barefooted, I decided to take my iPod, listen to "Revolution 9" and walk around my neighborhood as is. I ran into a bunch of old people walking *.*, and people walking their dogs around 7:30 though >.< Yes Ma'm ;)

I wish I could have brushed George's beautiful wavy hair.

I would love to attend Lou's birthday shinding in Branson.

Kudos to Lou for her memoirs! I can't wait to read her book!

George rode in a cooooool Dodge Dart when he visited Lou.

Reading the local paper, I note with interest that Acting Inspector Paul McCartney is back in town, fronting the constabulary.

That's strange... coincidence?
A friend of mine told me she saw a Beatle notebook (with stickers included) at walmart! Funny, I thought it would all be full of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez stuff. I'm always surprised how much the beatles are mentioned and still talked about almost everyday. Like James Franco was on Jimmy Kimmel tonight and said something like, "sorry Yoko".

That Means A Lot is a great song and would fit nicely on the Help! album! No so much If You Got Trouble, though...

Louise French Harrison sounded like such a lovely woman.

If not for Louise, there would have been no Beatles.

Louise made major contributions.

1. George was her son
2. Louise encouraged him every step of the way
3. Louise, in her words "forced" George to pay John a condolence call when Julia died because the last thing John needed was to sit and brood and in her words, "the group needed him and he needed the group"
4. Louise taught George and his older siblings the value of being a good person
5. Louise provided George and his young guests a venue to practice

Let's all raise our glasses to Louise! Cheers!

When I drive around campus, I turn Beatles music up really loud in the car.

I heard "I've Got A Feeling" by Pearl Jam today. It may just be the worst Beatles cover song ever.
