That last one makes my skin crawl. I hate bats. I am always yelling at the kids in the summer, when they go in and out of the patio door during the early evening, to not let a bat in (i.e., by leaving the door open too long). They all think I'm being unreasonable, but I know for a fact I would freak out if one ever got inside.

Aww, another member of the Anti-Bat League! People are always telling me what an important role they play in the ecosystem. Well, they can go play it away from me. Far away!

OK, so it's a chick book. I still found it tremendously suspenseful.



Never let it be said I'm not in touch with my sensitive side.

Kind of a "stay at home and chill" sort of weekend here at The Old Melody Ranch. How about you?

I recall that John Lennon once said that the Beatles were expected to top themselves with every record.  This clearly wasn't happening after Pepper (imho). 
George Martin said that that the guys never recycled and never repeated themselves.
Even with the early songs - although all of them were love songs - they tried to do things differently. As Paul said, She Loves You was written in a form of addressing to someone,
P. S. I Love You is in a form of love letter etc.

Not only that they wanted to top themselves with every record - John & Paul were constantly competing with each other.
Paul was making Penny Lane - John's response was Strawberry Fields. Both song are about their childhood memories - but with a totally different approach, music & lyrics.
The two of them made 'A Day In The Life', which is considered as one of their best.

'Rubber Soul' is different than 'Revolver', 'Sgt. Pepper' is different than 'Magical Mystery Tour'.
'The White Album' has 30 songs (and anyone can pick 20 of them which he likes the best and put it on one CD to enjoy.)

Isn't the 'Abbey Road' another peak, one of the best albums, with that wonderful B-side medley, and gems like Something, Octopus's Garden, Here Comes The Sun, The End,
Golden Slumbers, Come Together...?

But it wasn't the end, 'Let It Be' was their final released album - and again, they had the concept to make a 'live' album, returning to their roots.
(Eventually, it came out as 'half live' with song like Get Back, One After 909 and the orchestrated ones, which I like better - Across The Universe & The Long And Winding Road.)

I disagree that the band wasn't making great music after 'Sgt. Pepper.'

And what about magnificent single Hey Jude (1968.), John's Don't Let Me Down and super-crazy You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)? 8)

If Paul wrote 'Penny Lane' in early 60's, maybe it would go something like this...

LOVE ME DO, PENNY LANE

Penn, Penny Lane
Here I go again.
I walk down the street -
Me there you to meet!


refrain:
There goes the bus,
We are the two of us!


You love I
And I love you!
Hi, there goes John.
Let's go on!

What about Ancient Greece literature? Since October 2015 I read Homer, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Herodotus, Thucydides, etc. Still read Aristophanes. Very intersting dive into the ancient world.
Anyone read it?


The furthest back I've gone is the Roman Plutarch's Lives.  Oh, and Aesop's Fables.
