Blogtober: Day Two – In Memory of a Friend

Today, like many of my Beatle fan friends, I lost a friend. I didn’t know Trev as well as others but he was always straight up, with no bullshit. Before he was so suddenly taken from us he was organising a Fundraising event for this December. The event is going ahead to honour his memory and legacy of being part of a great community of Beatles fans.

Details of the Beatles4Food event can be found on facebook by clicking the graphic below


If you can’t attend but want to contribute to the charity please click here.

And finally, my friend Donna wrote a lovely tribute to Trev which you can read here.

Blogtober: Day One – Random Questions

In order to attempt to get into the swing of writing more often I’m going to try and do a Blogtober type thing. I’m not following any particular list, just finding topics and ideas that I fancy and going with them. Don’t worry, the flurry of posts is just for the month, it should quiet down again after that, but hopefully not quite as quiet.
