How often do you work on photo posts? Does it take you long?

I spend one day a week working on photos. It depends on what I’m looking for. One photo set can take me from a few minutes to half an hour. If it takes more then I move onto another set and save that one for later.

In total, I probably take five hours to finish about…..I’d say twenty photo sets. I get sidetracked sometimes.

March 14 (?), 1969

Newlyweds Paul & Linda McCartney along with his step-sister Ruth & his step-daughter Heather on the steps inside Rembrandt in Heswall, Cheshire, which was the home of his father Jim. The couple had gotten married just days before on March 12th.

I have over 900 photos saved on my phone. That plus the 85 drafts, the majority full with 10, it makes it at least 1750 photos I have to sort through and find correct information for.


Although I do love sorting and finding info on photos, it can be a pain in the ass. Even more when another famous Beatles blog posts photos I was planning on posting the next day. But I don’t because it makes it seem as if I just copied that blog.

I mean it when I say that I hope you guys appreciate me doing this blog. You know, letting you guys know correct information, posting rare photos. Even some photos that I took myself which I hesitate doing because people steal and claim them as theirs and people believe them.


It would be nice to get a message every month or so saying they appreciate what I do because I do this for you guys.

I’m sorry to have gotten somewhat emotional, but I’ve been having a bad day since a past argument has boiled back up and I’ve been getting very hateful messages again.

I hope you’ve all been having a nice day.

The Beatles arrived in Houston, Texas at 2AM with their chartered aeroplane surrounded with teenage fans at Houston International Airport.

While in Houston, The Beatles stayed at the Sheraton-Lincoln Hotel. It was there that the band held a press conference, which was sponsored by local radio station KILT. They would then be taken, in an armoured van, to the venue of the Sam Houston Coliseum.

Paul McCartney’s name and writing at age 10. 1952.

"The Beatles succeeded because they never took themselves seriously; they gave themselves to the world, entertained us, made us laugh and mad us cry. They tolerated the crowds of photographers and silly costumes (including those for a parody of Pyramus & Thisbe) with patience and self-effacement. They were rewarded with record honours, the undying adoration of millions of fans around the world, and a permanent niche in the happy islands of our subconscious."
