It is amazing how your brain can be taken over by music. We have been on a cross country road trip & we listened to some country music (good for sing alongs) but after I bought NEW...we listened to that 3 times. So we are home now & I wake up with Paul's songs in myhead & hubby does a line from some country 'Night Train' (always about trains trucks beer girls haha) & I told him to STOP! You're ruining my Paul songs. And wouldn't you know it...his train song keeps creeping out. BUT mine will win... from It Turned Out... I took a walk into the fire when I heard you calling me. I took a chance of what it could be
Wow! You certainly are dedicated! One question--you said between 5 & 7 am you went for breakfast. So you had no trouble leaving alone & getting back in line as your wrist bands were numbered, right? I've never met Paul, but I'm afraid I'm too old to handle the long wait overnight. You were very lucky to get in to see him.
Hi, No the wrist bands were not numbered, but we all made friends in the queue and looked after each others places if we wanted to go off to get food or toilet etc. I think at 46 i am feeling like i am getting too old now!
I'm 12 years older than you and young at heart, but the body says "No!"
The best thing Thatcher did in her career was the Falklands war, another war we won and showed people they cant invade British Teritory and get away with it. Well Done Maggie!
The problem is that it shouldn't be British territory. Bloody colonies shouldn't exist anymore. How far are the islands from England? Anyway, I will keep on celebrating the demise of the witch like most of England and the world is doing. Cheers!
Will you kindly leave south america to it's indesigenous people, clue they dont speak spanish or portugese.
A very good point Peter. Yes, I do believe the original inhabitants of South America, before they were so rudely invaded and forced to conform, were/are the Indians.
The decade that matters? The others didn't matter? I'm just being difficult..ignore me, Thanks Martin.
Happy to rephrase it.. The decade in question - how's that? Martin
I didn't mean to sound judgemental.. you have to remember I'm a jokester.. I like to poke fun at people who nitpick others. You are a great asset to this board and I very much appreciate your efforts, anytime! May you find peace this day and everyday and learn to laugh!
Aren't there FCC rules that the DJs should have followed? I thought you must tell a person when they are being taped or on a live broadcast. That may be what they will get charged with.
One damning aspect of this unfolding is that this was not a spontaneous live event that was simply unwise. The call was pre-recorded before broadcast, passed to the station legal team before transmission and passed for broadcast. So in considering any sanctions, the Australian Broadcast Standards Authority will not accept any station claim that this hoax call was the action of a pair of maverick rogue broadcasters. One phrase being bandied around for the cause of the tragic action taken by Jacintha Saldanha is "gross humiliation" - everything from internal hospital tut-tuts amongst peers and immediate line managers to the international hue and cry arising from the news. Another ugly aspect was the crowing hi-five-ing from the presenters and the station over the hoax with tweets and banner headlines on the station web-site over what an easy hit it was and how gullible the "hospital" - so essentially Jacintha - was in believing their fake royal accents. All that triumphalist media has been cleared from the net now - after the news of the death broke. I return to my point I personally loathe all this type of personal abuse in the name of humour - it overtakes the crass stunt that Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand pulled that led to their fall from grace and loss of BBC contracts: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Russell_Brand_Show_prank_telephone_calls_row That led to a £150,000 fine by the UK Broadcast Standards Agency OFCOM and I hope similar censure will follow this in Australia. I also sincerely hope that either legal - or preferably voluntary - action ensures a significantly large compensation settlement is made to Jacintha's family. It doesn't matter what the pre-event condition of Jacintha's emotional stability was - as a base reference work as a night nurse is exhausting and tiring, esp when also meeting the demands of a young family, de-facto. The consequences of any hoax call upon the hoaxee is the responsibility of the hoaxer. Claims already heard from the radio station that this outcome "couldn't be foreseen or planned for" do not stand and they must face significant censure for the call in the first place let alone the tragic outcome. I'm pleased to hear that advertisers that supported the radio station are cancelling contracts in droves cutting off the station's commercial life-blood even before the independent review of their conduct.

From the sound of this on the Main Website, the Premium Membership has been discontinued. "to make PaulMcCartney.com work better for everyone, we have been developing a new platform for the website. Fans will begin to see the results of this work from Thursday 1st November on the new site.

Maybe they didn't get the response or membership they expected.
