Peter Asher's "The Beatles from A to Zed": It could have been so much more
About five years ago I told a friend I was thinking about writing a book. He said, “About the Beatles?” I replied sarcastically, “Yeah, because that’s what the world needs. Another book about The Beatles.” It’s impossible to pinpoint a number, but there are thousands, maybe in the tens of thousands, of books written on... Read more »

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
