you already know to avoid this journal on Sundays.

In conclusion...
Depending upon your "faith"
be on your guard on Sundays.
The eppylover never wishes to offend,

to indulge in her own non-beliefs
and vent her frustrations.

I'm giving you a link to a very interesting blog called Debunking Christianity.

The two Easter posts are of particular interest, Why I Don't Believe he Resurrection Happened,
and the "Easter Egg" link on his Happy Easter! entry.

In fact, this entire blog, at first glance, seems quite entertaining and enlightening.

And now, for those of you who are not into my "sermons" here is a bit of Pete Best news:

Best wants to bury the hatchet and talk to McCartney

LONDON: After 40 years, the forgotten Beatle Pete Best, wants to bury the hatchet and talk to Sir Paul McCartney about old times.

Best, 65, was the drummer in the original Beatles band but was sacked before the group hit the big time and was replaced by Ringo Starr.

The reason for Best’s sacking remains a mystery even till date with the former Beatle refusing to give credence to any of the rumours. Was it that he wasn’t a good enough drummer, or too popular with the fans for John Lennon to bear or that he turned down sexual advances from manager Brian Epstein - no one knows? And Best refuses to divulge the real reason.

“We’re not getting any younger. We know what we’ve done and we’re not going to think any worse of each other if we had a chat now. It was all 40-odd years ago,” Best tells a British newspaper.

Best joined the Beatles in August 1960 in order for them to fulfil a series of gigs in Hamburg. After playing for two years with the group and doing their first recording for their Parlophone audition - an early version of ‘Love Me Do’ - he was suddenly dropped from the line up just as the group were becoming famous.

He ended up doing shifts in a bread factory stacking loaves in a delivery van and missed out on the millions that the Beatles went on to make. After years of shock, disgruntlement and a suicide attempt, Best says he now bears no grudges. “Some people expect me to be bitter and twisted, but I’m not. I feel very fortunate in my life. God knows what strains and stresses the Beatles must have been under,” he says philosophically.

Now after all these years Best finds himself making money from his Beatles’ days. A number of recordings he made with them featured on ‘Anthology 1’ and are now said to have brought him more than £1 million.

Sir Paul has not commented on a possible reunion with Best.


...Maybe Paul just doesn't trust him not to be like Peter Brown or anyone else who stabbed him in the back after getting back together just to "chat over old times." :(

BTW, re "too popular with the fans for John Lennon to bear", the rumour I've always heard was that it wasn't John but Paul who was upset about Pete being more popular with the girls.

The eppylover's considered opinion? That Pete just didn't have the same humour, the Beatley quick wit and perky personality. The boys instinctively knew that he just was not Beatle material.

Come to think of it, his sullen image would have fit very nicely in the Rolling Stones rather than the Beatles. Because he was (and is) quite a good guy, even if he did say Brian tried to put the makes on him. (Jeeez, shurrup, Pete!)

So, c'mon, Macca. Throw the dice. You know you want to. Hmmm?
