Just a small correction - search FOR God.

I'll never tell where he's been hiding all these years!

I woke up yesterday morning & the flower was still there, but by the time I got home from work it was wilted. It lasted just for the 25th! Absolutely perfect!

It has been plucked from the plant & is now drying so I can hang it next to the one from the first anniversary of his passing. I'll keep them both on the wall just above where I sit to meditate!

Thanks for the flower, George!

Fans pay tribute to youngest Beatle

Feb 26 2008 by Laura Sharpe, Liverpool Daily Post

BEATLES fans have been paying tribute to the late George Harrison on the day he would have turned 65 years of age.

John James Chambers, founder of the Beatles Appreciation Society, met fans inside Liverpool’s Cavern Walks to remember the youngest Beatle. Speaking at the Beatles statue yesterday, Mr Chambers said February 25 would have been an important milestone in Harrison’s life as he would have become a pensioner.

Mr Chambers said: “We usually remember George and John on the major anniversaries of their death, but in this year of culture it seemed right to mark such a milestone birthday.

“He would have become a pensioner and been able to claim his bus pass. As the society was instrumental in campaigning for seven years for a Beatles statue, it seemed fitting to place the flowers here in Cavern Walks.”

Harrison died in November, 2001, after battling lung cancer, and his ashes were scattered along the Ganges River.

Born in Wavertree, confusion surrounds his exact birthday.

There has never been a question. It's always been the 25th. However, when George originally release his book, I Me Mine, in the late 70s, he told the story of how soon after midnight he had been born & that his father actually asked the mid-wife & his wife if anyone had taken notice of the time to determine if it had been the 24th or th 25th. They said they had & that he was born just minutes past midnight. For some reason, people decided to act as if this was "new news" & ran about saying that George had been born on the 24th.

George's sister to this day still explains that after George had been born, their mother had made a note of it being the 25th on paper. She remembers reading that in the morning when she met her baby brother for the first time.

George celebrated the 25th, so that's what his fans do...

I have an interview with George from the Beatles Monthly magazine from the early 90's where he said he had just recently found out he was actually born on the 24th, just, but he would continue to celebrate on the 25th. I'll try and come back tomorrow with an actual quote, I know where the magazine is so I'll dig it out. Sorry if I'm adding to the confusion, lol!

Default Belated post but...

Unfortunately, I was unable to post back in February (sorry!) but that of course doesn't mean I forgot. By way of a tribute: http://anothergirl83.tripod.com/id204.html
