I,ve recently finished Tony Barreell's book, On The Roof which of course details the Fabs last live performance. It's a very good book though what comes across is how close the band came on many occasions to actually return to doing a proper concert , they came agonisingly close so many times.
Now that i've finished that , i've now started reading, Hunter Davies book, "i Read The News Today Oh Boy " documenting the Beatles lyrics, picked up for a bargain price of £3 in Fopp . This really is an excellent book, Hunter Davies has a lovely writing style and accompanying some actual hand written lyrics are little stories around them on the way. This is how a lyric book can be interesting , whereas The Kate Bush book , David Mitchell(the author not the comedian.) How to be invisible, this really is the most pointless and disappointing book i've read .
And finally Esther, in May i'm going back to my favourite holiday place, Leiden in Holland in May, hopefully i have lovely weather as i'm off to visit the Kuekenhoff Gardens , which is only open for a limited time this year, i'm going the last week it's open and the theme this year , is "Flower Power " and there is a Strawberry Fields garden . One of my colleagues went last year and spent over 4 hours there and still didn't see everything. For this trip , the book i'm taking is David Hepworth's , "Nothing is Real " with the tagline, The Beatles were underrated and other sweeping statements about pop.
Fiendish Thingy: Thanks Bobber. I'm good thanks. Quiet on here for the last few months. I see Al has gone all 'Facebook' and is attracting new members. No bad thing. Are you going to the annual Beatleweek in Liverpool this year? Not long now 10 weeks or so. See you there?

Bobber: Not sure. It's an expensive trip for me plus I'm starting a new job around that time.

Amadeus: Hey all. Not been frequenting here very much lately. Between burying people, helping sick people and feeling crap myself, Me and Mrs. A. have been weighed under. Hoping to get a bit more out of that rut so I can focus back on the fun things I used to focus
