Thanks for the early QOTD Karla! Good luck with the fund-raising event!

Today's Question(s):


Wow, I can't believe it, I actually met someone
who slept with a Beatle. No names, no pack drill (but it wasn't John Lennon)!


Bonus Question:

What was the last thing you saw that someone had that made you say
" OOOO I want one !!!!! " ?
Hmmm, the older I get the less that happens... in fact I can't remember the last time it happened.
Did you get it ?

Was it all you hoped for ?


Extra Credit Question:

Where were you when John Lennon was shot ?
As I write this, I'm watching a TV prog about his death... and was trying to remember where I was. At the time I figured it was one of those things I'd always remember (like I still remember where I was when JFK was assassinated even though I was only 14). But, guess what, I actually can't remember. I think I was at work.

Do you remember what you were doing when you found out ?
If I was at work, I'd have most likely been analysing stats or writing a report.


Just for Fun:


How many Christmas/Holiday cards have you received ?
Just one so far - it seems to be that people in the US start with the Christmas stuff earlier than we do here.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
