I have quite a few Tiny Bubbles. I was born in 1971, the year after The Beatles split up so I have fond memories of hearing all the early solo singles when they were brand new. I actually became a fan of the band following the loss of John in 1980, as a result of all the following publicity. In early 1981, Imagine hit the number 1 spot here in the UK for about 4 weeks & I fell in love with the tune straight away, I couldn't get enough of it. Around the same time, I first heard the red & blue compilations & heard tunes like Something, Hey Jude & Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds for the first time. I was so impressed that tunes like these were recorded by the same band that had earlier recorded tunes like Love Me Do & She Loves You. I remember thinking "Are these songs by the same band?" Needless to say, I became a huge fan of The Beatles music overnight & am still a great fan to this day. A couple of years after in 1983, I bought a copy of Hunter Davies authorized biography of The Beatles & became as much of a fan of their story as I already was of the music. From then on, every trip to the local library resulted in me borrowing any book about the band I could get my hands on. Then came the era of video & I persuaded my parents to hire a copy of 'The Compleat Beatles' from the local video shop & saw movie footage of the band in concert & in interview for the first time. I soon lost count of how many times I subsequently hired that video out from the shop - loads of times let's put it that way. Fast forward to recent years & the age of the internet & I am spoilt for choice with all the information & websites about The Beatles that there is available. I can spend hours looking on YouTube for footage of the band & their solo careers. I guess, I will continue to be a fan of The Beatles for many years to come.

RE: Are you eating less meat since meat free monday?
Been doing Meat Free Monday for a couple of weeks, since which I have reduced my intake of meat quite substantially. Also I have developed a craving for nut cutlets..... Richard
